Newton’s Nook Designs – February Release Day 4

Welcome to the final day of the Newton’s Nook Designs February release hop. I hope you’re loving everything and have your list ready for tomorrow when it all goes live in the shop! We’ve got 2 more stamps and a die set to share with you today. I hope you enjoy it!

Hello Spring

Easter Lily

I’ve got two beautiful cards to share with you today featuring these final stamp sets. I hope you enjoy!

For the first card, I stamped the Hello Spring image on a piece of cardstock and colored it with my copics. Then I trimmed it down to fit behind the smallest frame in the Framework die set and mounted the frame with foam tape.

Then I took the largest scallop rectangle from the Frames & Flags die set and cut some patterned paper with that. I wrapped some beautiful green ribbon around the panel and popped it up with foam tape on a kraft card base. Then I adhered the stamped panel to that and moved on to finishing touches.

This was such a simple card, I knew I wanted something to bring interest to the image so I got out my glossy accents that you all know I love but that wasn’t enough. So then I reached for my uber glittery Stickles and added that to the bunny’s tail and the flower. I think it adds just the right touch.

Now, for the gorgeous Easter Lily image.

After laying everything out to decide my design; I stamped, colored, die cut my image and set it aside to get everything else in order. I used the gingham stencil with a pigment ink that’s almost the same color purple as my cardstock and then die cut it with the largest in the Framework die set. This is when I stamped and heat embossed my sentiment in the lower right corner of the design.

Next I cut a flag from the Frames & Flags die set and lined it up with the same Framework die and cut the end to match.

Now for assembly! I put foam tape on the back of the purple panel and wrapped some twine around it tying a bow. Then popped in on a white card base. Next I also popped the flag up with foam tape. And because I love dimension, I popped those beautiful flowers up as well.

For finishing touches, I added glossy accents to the stamens on the flowers and adhered some pretty opalescent gems throughout the design.

I hope you enjoyed today’s cards…the whole week’s cards for that matter! Thank you for stopping by!

Newton’s Nook Designs – February Release Day 3

Hello everyone and thanks for joining me for day 3 of the Newton’s Nook February release hop! I hope you’ve been enjoying everything so far because we have more amazingness to share today!

Newton’s Rain Boots Stamps and Dies

I’m just loving these images and the punny sentiments have completely stolen my heart! They really do quack me up! 😉

Today’s card came together in my head the moment I saw this release. And I was so pleased when everything fit just how I had intended. It was a little bit of a process though. I started by using Thermoweb transfer gel on teal cardstock using the new Raindrops stencil and then I set it aside to dry while I colored my images from Newton’s Rain Boots.

I ran the stenciled panel through my laminator with teal decofoil and was sooooo happy with how it turned out! Then I proceeded to build my scene by die cutting a fence and grass from the land borders set. Then I used the rounded rectangle from the Frames & Flags die set and popped it on a white scalloped rectangle using the same die set.

Some of the images are popped up with foam tape and some are adhered to the panel directly for a little extra dimension and interest. Then I stamped my sentiment on a flag from the Frames & Flags set and trimmed it down.

For finishing touches on this fun card, I added glossy accents to all the beaks and feet, flower centers, Newton’s nose and the buckles on the boots.

And look at the shine you get from the decofoil on that awesome stenciled background! I am in love!!! Now to wait for someone to get sick so I can share it. LOL!

Newton’s Nook Designs – February Release Day 1

Hello everyone! I’m so excited to finally start sharing all the fun that is the Newton’s Nook Designs February release!!! I hope you enjoy it as much as I have! ❤

Today we’re starting things off with 2 new stencils and a stamp and coordinating dies!

Raindrops Stencil and Petite Flowers Stencil

Hop Into Spring Stamps and Dies

These are both so much fun. Today’s card features the new Hop Into Spring set paired with the Petite Flowers stencil. I hope you enjoy it!

I decided I wanted this to be an Easter card so I chose the 2 images with eggs and then for a break, I chose the daffodil image for the center. I love them all! They really are just the sweetest! After I stamped, colored and die cut my images, I die cut all the elements for my card so I could get messy with that fun petite flowers stencil and some glitter glitz gel!

I popped the frame up on the card base and inlaid the stenciled squares inside once they were dry. Then added foam tape to my images so they would lay nicely over the raised frame.

For finishing touches I added glossy accents to the bunny noses, toe beans, Easter eggs and such for some interest and detail. I think the shine goes well with the glitter of the petite flowers.

Last, I stamped my sentiment on a speech bubble from the Speech Bubbles die set. I love the options this set gives! Then, I snagged a heart from the Puppy Playtime set, stamped, colored it and gave it a little glossy accents too before popping it up with foam tape.

These slimline cards are quickly becoming a favorite of mine…especially when I don’t like to choose which image to use from an adorable set like this.

The Newton’s Nook Designs Team is hopping along today to share some great Sweet Treats – just in time for Valentine’s Day! Make sure you scroll down to the bottom of this post to see the whole list and hop along and comment for a chance to win!

I’m so excited to be sharing a really fun Valentine treat box with you for the Newton’s Nook Sweet Treats Blog Hop today! Treat boxes are one of my all-time favorite things to create so this hop is right up my alley! I hope you find fun inspiration and have enjoy hopping along to see everyone’s projects!

I chose to make a mini-milk carton treat box and decorate it with the newly released Tides of Love stamps and dies, along with some other fun Newton’s Nook products.

I started by die cutting my box and then used the waves stencil to give the top some fun water texture. Then I grabbed the mountain border stencil and used that for a sandy bottom. Then I assembled my box and started adhering my ocean creatures.

After those were on I used the banner die from the Frames and Flags die set and made a tag to stamp my sentiment on. I punched a hole, added a twine bow and clipped it to the top with a mini clothespin. This way it’s easy to open and close the box for the giver and the recipient.

For finishing touches I added Stickles to the turtle’s hearts and all of the heart bubbles coming up from the fish.

Newton’s Nook – You Octopi My Heart

Hello everyone! I’m up on the Newton’s Nook blog today sharing this fun watercolor-type ocean card featuring the recently released Tides of Love stamps and dies. I love making scene cards and I really love making ocean cards so this was a blast for me!

I decided to play with some techniques I don’t do often – ink smooshing for the background panel and watercolor with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers for all my critters. I think this background is so fun and the different textures are awesome! I love the scalloped border the Frames and Flags dies give too.

I heat embossed my critters with black before coloring them in and die cutting them. Then I popped them up with foam squares. I used the Land Borders die set to make some sand and splattered it with distress ink and pearl watercolor.

I stamped my sentiment in a blue ink on the thought bubble from the Speech Bubbles die set and popped it in place too. The finishing touches on this card were just the candy hearts as bubbles above all the fish and one in the thought bubble because it just fit too perfectly!

Last, I popped the watercolor panel on a teal panel with foam tape and then adhered the whole thing to a dark blue card base. I just love the texture of the background and the shine from the heat embossing.

It’s going to be such a fun card to mail to someone special! ❤

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!

Newton’s Nook January Release – Day 4

Welcome back to the final day of the Newton’s Nook January release hop! I hope you’ve enjoyed everything so far and are excited to find out the final sets so you can start shopping tomorrow when it all goes live!

Newton’s Valentine

Newton’s Crafty Cardio

Both of these sets are so much fun! I have two cards to share with you – one with each set!

For this card I used the new Bokeh Hearts stencil to make a sky and then die cut it from the largest of the Frames and Flags set. I inked some cardstock up for my ground and die cut that from the same rectangle and then from the Land Borders grass border. I glued the first layer to the sky and popped the second one up so Newton could be in the grass. Now I stamped and heat embossed my sentiment in the largest bokeh heart. It fit just perfectly!

Newton is popped up with foam along with the hearts and then the flowers are glued directly to the card. After that was done I added glossy accents and Wink of Stella glitter brush pen for some shimmer and shine and finished it all with white gel pen accents.

Now on to Newton getting his crafty cardio on! Haha! I wish crafting burned more calories…but don’t we all. 😉

For this card I stamped the small images from the set all over a panel in light gray ink and then die cut it from the largest rectangle in the Frameworks die set. Then I took the flags from the Frames and Flags set and cut them from patterned paper as well. I stamped my sentiment and tied some baker’s twine around one and adhered it down. Then adhered the others for a ground under Newton. After stamping, coloring and die cutting my main image, I popped him up with foam squares.

For finishing touches on this fun card I added glossy accents to Newton’s nose and all the paints, and Wink of Stella glitter brush pen to Newton’s sweatband. I put white gel pen accents throughout and finished with a scattering of rainbow Nuvo Crystal Drops across the background. Once all of that way dry, the whole panel was popped up with foam tape on a card base.

Newton’s Nook January Release – Day 2

Welcome back to day 2 of the Newton’s Nook January release! Today’s set – Love Quarry – is my all-time favorite of this release! I had SOOOO much fun playing with it and have endless amounts of other ideas too!

Love Quarry Stamps and Dies

Seriously, those adorable construction trucks and the punny sayings are just the best!

To make this fun card, I used the land border dies to cut hills and then inked them with distress inks and spritzed them with water. Next, I used acrylic paint to dye my texture paste and then smeared it on my cardstock for an awesome muddy look! While that was drying, I inked my card front to make a blue sky and spritzed it too. Then I set to stamping, coloring and die cutting my images.

Once the mud was dry I popped the panels up with foam tape and started adhering all my pieces. Most of these are popped up with foam tape as well because it masked the mud’s texture.

I decided that these awesome trucks needing to be talking so I used the speech bubbles die set for my sentiments. I love the added whimsy it gave this card.

For finishing touches I added white gel pen accents throughout the images, Wink of Stella glitter brush pen to all the hearts and glossy accents throughout the card design. There is so much awesome texture going on in this card. I’m so in love with it!

Newton’s Nook January Release – Day 1

Oh my goodness! I’m so excited to finally start sharing the Newton’s Nook January release with you! It is over-the-top amazing! Today we’re sharing the:

Tides of Love Stamps and Dies

Bokeh Hearts Stencil Set

I’ve got a super fun card to share with you using the Tides of Love stamps and dies. Stay tuned for inspiration from me using the awesome new stencil!

I couldn’t decide which critters to use so I decided to make a slimline card and use everyone! The critters are stamped, colored and die cut. Then popped up with foam squares on an ink blended panel.

I used the land borders to cut my sand and then added dot detail for texture. I added white gel pen to all the critters and black glaze pen to the eyes.

If you follow me at all, you know I love my finishing touches and little details. On this card, I added glossy accents to the hearts on the fish, turtles and also on the octopus tentacles and whale water spurt. Then I added unicorn Stickles to the crab and octopi’s heart and the hearts in the whales water spurt. The difference in texture and also the look from gloss to super-sparkle is so eye catching. I love how this card turned out! Don’t you?

Newton’s Nook Penguin Pile Tag

Happy Christmas Eve everyone! I’m so excited for Christmas this year! It’s going to be so much fun! Do you have traditions or plans for Christmas Eve? I’d love to hear them in the comments! We are always struggling to keep busy until bedtime.

Anyway, I have one last tag to share with you today. All of these personalized tags will be under my tree for the special people in my life. It’s the first year I’ve made tags and it was so much fun!

I love this penguin set from Newton’s Nook so much and this was my first time coloring it with actual Christmas colors! The tag is from Trinity Stamps narrow card and bookmark die set.

I die cut my tag from white cardstock and ink blended it. Then cut the bottom again and ink blended it as well. I adhered these together and splattered water. Then I stamped, colored and die cut my images. I popped them up with foam squares and decided to snag the snowflakes from Newton’s Nook Toboggan Together set and the heart from Cup of Cocoa to stamp in the background.

I added white gel pen accents throughout and black glaze pen to the eyes. Then I added glossy accents to the stripes, polka dots, beaks and feet and Wink of Stella glitter brush pen to the hats and earmuffs. Last I added Stickles to the white parts of the hats.

I did die cut another tag in white and glued the recipient’s name to that one. Once everything was dry I adhered them together and added baker’s twine to the top.

This one is all ready and now everyone in my family has one gift with a special handmade tag on it. I hope they all like them!

Thank you for sharing your time with me during this busy time of year! I hope you have a fabulous day! Merry Christmas!
