Newton’s Nook – August Release Day 4

Continuing on with our final day of release reveals for the Newton’s Nook August Release, we have even more gorgeous fall goodies to share.

Harvest Haul stamps and dies

Newton’s Crate stamps and dies

Aren’t these images just amazing! I love them so much! Let’s start with a card I made with Harvest Haul.

I started, like usual, by stamping and coloring the image with copic markers. Then I used the coordinating die to cut it out. For my mini scene, I decided to use the oval frames dies for a different look. I cut one white oval and inked it up with the Sunscape stencil using orange and yellow ink. After removing the stencil I went over the whole panel lightly with the yellow ink still in my brush to take away the stark white areas. Then I cut another partial oval from kraft cardstock and used a Land Borders die to cut a hill from that.

I cut a scalloped oval using the Autumn paper pad and a smaller one from kraft for my sentiment. Next, I trimmed a piece of plaid down to fit an A2 card front and started adhering everything.

I added the plaid to a white card base with liquid glue, then the scalloped oval with foam squares and the scene oval with liquid glue. Finally, the truck and sentiment oval are adhered with foam squares too.

For finishing touches, I added white gel pen highlights to the image and glossy accents to the taillights. Last, I tied some brown twine around the top of the card and tied it in a bow.

I love how that last card turned out but let’s take a look at the adorable new Newton’s Crate stamp set too! This is extra fun because all of the sentiments can be stamped on the side of the crate if you want to! Isn’t that fun!?!

I stamped Newton and some extra leaves first, then colored them with my copics and cut them out with the coordinating dies. Next, I stamped my sentiment on the side of the crate. I try to do this after coloring to help with potential smearing and bleeding.

I thought this image was perfect for a square card so I pulled out the Frames Squared dies and cut a scalloped square from the Autumn paper pad and then a focal circle using the Circle Frames dies. Then adhered everything to a kraft card base measuring 4 1/4 inches square. This way it still mails in an invitation envelope with regular postage.

The scalloped square, circle and Newton are all added with foam tape, along with the accent leaves too. Then I finished the design off with orange twine I saved from older Newton’s Nook packages.

For finishing touches I added white gel pen highlights to the images and glossy accents to Newton’s nose.

Newton’s Nook – August Release Day 3

For day 3 of the Newton’s Nook August Release reveals, we switch gears to gorgeous fall things!

Autumn Oval stamps (coordinates with Oval Frames dies)

Autumn Paper Pad

Aren’t these new products just wonderful! I’m totally obsessed with it all. It makes me want to decorate my whole house for fall immediately.

Today, I stamped and heat embossed the Autumn Oval with gold embossing powder on watercolor paper and watercolored it with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. These are my favorite for this technique. It’s so fun and relaxing. Once that was finished and dry, I die cut it with the largest scalloped oval die.

For my sentiment, I cut one of the smaller ovals using the same watercolor paper and heat embossed my sentiment in the same color. Then I took a green marker around the edge of the oval and drug the color inward with a wet paint brush.

Next, I chose 2 patterns from the Autumn paper pad and cut one with the largest oval die and the other was trimmed to A2 size. I adhered the plaid to a white card base and the large oval to that with liquid glue. Finally, I popped the watercolor ovals up with foam squares.

To finish off the design, I wrapped twine around the left side of the card and tied it in a bow. I absolutely LOVE how rustic this card feels. I just love it!

Newton’s Nook – August Release Day 2

Welcome to day 2 of reveals for the amazing Newton’s Nook August release! Today we have even more super fun Halloween goodies in store for you!

Halloween Pile stamps and dies

Spiderweb Oval stamps (coordinates with Oval Frames dies)

I have two very fun cards to share with you today, featuring these new stamps! I had so much fun creating these. I hope you love them too!

First up, I had some embossing fun with the new Spiderweb Oval stamps. I had fun adding the extra spiders to my oval and sentiment to add to the creepy factor. Then I fussy cut it out and set it aside. I inked up a piece of white cardstock with seedless preserves distress oxide ink and spritzed it with water before die cutting the panel with the largest scalloped oval die.

To assemble my card, I cut a piece of patterned paper from Halloween Meows and adhered it to a white card base. Then I popped up both ovals with foam tape. For a little splash of extra color, I tied orange ribbon around the top third of the card front.

For my card featuring the adorable Halloween Pile stamp set, I thought it fit perfectly on a mini slimline, so that’s what I did. I stamped and colored those adorable critters with copic markers, plus a few extra bats and used coordinating dies to cut it all out. For the sentiment, I thought it would be fun if these cuties were talking to the recipient so I die cut a speech bubble and stamped my sentiment on that.

For the front of my card, I cut strips from the Halloween Woofs paper pad and adhered them to a mini slimline card base. These measure 3×6 inches and can mail with a regular stamp! Isn’t that fun!?!

Finally, I added my images and sentiment with foam squares and then came in for some simple finishing touches. A little glossy accents on toe beans and noses, then stardust Stickles on the witch hat for good measure.

Newton’s Nook – Aloha Friend

Hi there! I’m so glad you’re here. Today I’m over on the Newton’s Nook blog sharing this beautiful and simple to create square card featuring the Tropical Fringe stamp set. I got inky, as always, and loved the process of this one.

To start, I took distress oxide ink in picked raspberry, carved pumpkin and squeezed lemonade and blended it messily on a panel of watercolor paper. Then I sprayed the panel with water until the ink started to move around on its own. This was way cool to watch. Once that started, I used my heat gun to push the ink where I wanted it until the panel was dry. Then I took my distress sprayer and spritzed it with bigger droplets for actual distressing. When that was dry, I flicked white paint on the panel and let it dry.

Next, I stamped and heat embossed the main image from Tropical Fringe on the panel and used the largest scalloped square die from Frames Squared to cut it out. I had a good size scrap left, so I heat embossed a sentiment and used a die from Circle Frames to cut that out because the size matched better.

I adhered the panel to a 4.25×4.25 white card base with foam tape and popped the sentiment up in the center with foam squares. Then I took my Limeade watercolor from LH Colors and painted in one type of leaf all around the image. The shimmer is so pretty in real life.

To finish off the design I tied some green baker’s twine around the top and tied it in a bow, then glued a white clay heart under the sentiment. Isn’t this so pretty?!? I love it!

Products used:
Tropical Fringe stamps
Frames Squared dies
Circle Frames dies
Foam tape and squares
LH Colors – limeade
Twiddler’s Nook Sweethearts clay embellishments
Bearly Art glue
Magic Anti-static brush
Watermark & Embossing Ink

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

Newton’s Nook – Birthday Release Day 4

Oh my goodness friends! I hope you loved the release reveals for this year’s amazing birthday release for Newton’s Nook! Aren’t all of these products amazing!?! I am in love with each one! We’re not done giving things away though. So, today we have bonus inspiration and another chance to win at the bottom of this post too.

For my extra card share today, I have combined a ton of the release to create another super fun and adorable birthday card to share with you!

For this card, I inked up a white panel with distress oxide ink in black soot and hickory smoke. I was going to a bit of a chalkboard vibe today. Then I stamped and heat embossed the Birthday Oval image on that and used the coordinating Oval Frame die to cut it out. Then I used distress oxide ink and watercolored some of the balloons orange.

I stamped and colored one of the Birthday Mice images and used the coordinating dies to cut it out next. I stamped a sentiment from Birthday Roundabout on a rounded banner from the Banner Trio dies. I added the image and sentiment to the oval with foam squares and added foam tape to the back of the oval too.

I was going to add the oval to a solid piece of cardstock but thought it would be fun to kick up the celebration level a bit with patterned paper from the new paper pad. I added the whole thing to an A2 card base with liquid glue.

For finishing touches I came in with glossy accents and white gel pen accents to the image. Then finished the design off with some wrapped twine around the left side of the card.

Newton’s Nook – Birthday Release Day 3

Thanks so much for sticking with us friends! Today is day 3 of the Newton’s Nook Birthday Release reveals. This is the final reveal for new products today but be sure to come back tomorrow for one more surprise chance to win. Until then, let’s see what we have in store!

Sky High Celebrations stamps and dies

Isn’t this new set just adorable beyond words! I love it so much! And guess what?!?!? It absolutely words seamlessly with the Bookmark dies! I can’t wait to create bookmarks and tags with this fun images too!

Today I chose the balloon image to stamp and color, using the Birthday Party paper pad once again for my color palette inspiration. I used the coordinating dies to cut the image out and set it aside. Next, I die cut a rounded rectangle from Frames & Flags dies to stamp and heat emboss clouds and a sentiment on. I just adore how this looks together!

Next, I took an A2 panel and inked up the new Bokeh Balloons stencil set. These balloons are layered so perfectly that I didn’t even mask anything off between colors. It was so fun to pick and choose colors and end up with a gorgeous balloon filled background. Once it was inked, I used the largest Frames & Flags die to cut it down.

Now, for assembly on this card, I cut a piece of red balloon paper from the Birthday Party paper pad to A2 size and added it to a white card base. Then I added the balloon stencil panel with foam tape. I added foam squares to my image and adhered it to the vellum layer. This gave me a place to hid the adhesive that adheres this to the card front.

For finishing touches I came in with black glaze pen, followed by white gel pen highlight on the puppy’s eyes. Then glossy accents on noses and beaks. Finally I added unicorn Stickles to the highlight on the balloon images.

Newton’s Nook – Birthday Release Day 2

Hey friends! Back for day 2 of release reveals for the Newton’s Nook 9th Birthday Release! Today we’re adding a must-have to the oval card front series. It is so much fun to create with. You’re going to love it!

Birthday Oval stamps (Coordinates with Oval Frames dies)

For today’s card, I just couldn’t resist pulling out one of my very favorite sets – Puppy Playtime – to pair with this fun Birthday Oval set.

Using the paper pad so much this release, because it’s amazing, had me wanting a little variety. So I chose a very different color palette and colored up my images from Birthday Oval and Puppy Playtime and used the coordinating dies to cut everything out. I used liquid glue to adhere the hat to my puppy’s head and set those aside to create my background.

I inked up a piece of white cardstock with distress oxide ink with salvaged patina fading down into nothing toward the bottom. Then I splattered the panel with water, peacock feathers distress oxide ink and white paint for good measure. Sometimes I forget the white paint but I really love the different it makes in the look of the background.

Once the panel was dry, I wrapped some yellow twine around it and tied it in a bow. I added the Birthday Oval with foam tape and then added my puppy with single and double layers of foam squares so it laid nice and flat.

For finishing touches I came in with glossy accents on random places all over the oval and also parts of the puppy too. I added black glaze pen to his eyes and once that was dry I came back in with a white gel pen to add the highlight that got covered up.

Newton’s Nook – June Release Day 4

Oh my WOW! It’s already the final day of release reveals for the Newton’s Nook June release! I hope you are loving each item and have your checklist prepared because it’s all available starting TOMORROW!!!

But first, let’s reveal our final stamp and die set and get on to some fun inspiration.

Newton’s Kite

I will be honest, this may be the final day of reveals but I was so in love with this image and the new paper pad, that this was the first card I created. I had so much fun and love how bright it is.

I stamped and colored the image first, pulling the green choice from the paper pad. I used the coordinating dies to cut it out. While flipping through the paper pad I remembered the sun and clouds pattern which I thought would be fun background to the kite in the sky. So I used a die from Circle Frames to cut it out and also trimmed the stripes down to A2 size. The patterns together were too busy so I cut the scalloped circle from yellow cardstock to break them up a bit.

While toying with different ideas for my sentiment I thought they might fit being stamped directly on the clouds…but it’s a bit squishy and I didn’t love it. So I switched gears, keeping the clouds because that was a happy accident that I loved! Instead, I stamped and heat embossed each part of the phrase and trimmed them out with my scissors. That bold black sentiment looks so cool with all the bright color.

To assemble everything, I used liquid glue to add the sun and cloud paper to the yellow circle, along with the die cut clouds. Then I added foam squares to Newton and attached him. I flipped the whole thing over and added foam tape and squares to it all (some of Newton is double layer so he lays flat), removed the release paper and attached it to the striped panel. Last, I added the sentiment pieces with foam squares to the clouds.

I kept finishing touches very simple but just adding a little glossy accents to Newton’s nose and the bows on the kite tail.

I hope you have enjoyed all the inspiration this week from the team and are ready to order some new, fun goodies tomorrow! But first…

Newton’s Nook – June Release Day 3

My, my, how this week is flying by! We’re up to day 3 of the Newton’s Nook June release reveals. I hope you’re loving things so far. Today we have another stamp and die set to have a look at! Let’s go!

Dog Park

I just couldn’t resist the opportunity to create a super fun scene card with this new great set!

I started by stamping my images and coloring them with copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut everything out and laid them out on an A2 panel to figure out spacing and scene elements. Once I had an idea, I started getting inky!

The sky panel is distress oxide in peacock feathers, salty ocean and tumbled glass, while the grass is mowed lawn and twisted citron. I spritzed the panels with water and blotted them dry. Next, I die cut the fence, clouds and sun from white cardstock. I used the ink left in my blending tools to add color to the sun – using mustard seed and spiced marmalade distress oxide ink.

Now, to assemble everything, I used liquid glue for the scene layers and dog bones in the grass. The pup, his frisbee and party hat are all added with foam squares. Then, for my sentiment I stamped part on the smallest Framework die and heat embossed the other part, cutting it out with scissors. I added both elements with foam squares too.

For finishing touches I added glossy accents to the dog’s nose and frisbee. Then I came in with unicorn Stickles on the party hat and sunshine rays.

I am very excited for the recipient of this card to open it up! I just know they are going to LOVE IT so much!

Newton’s Nook – June Release Day 2

Here we are again! It’s time for day 2 of reveals for the Newton’s Nook June release! Today we have another addition to the newest full card front series – ovals!

Flamingo Oval

I love how you can used this with the oval frames dies or on it’s own to fill up your card front. This time, I created an oval shaped card and turned it into a shaker too! This was really fun to make and I love playing with it!

First, I die cut the largest scalloped oval from white cardstock and lined up my stamp within the stitching lines. This is the easiest way for me to make sure I have enough edge for the scallop. I used my copics and colored the whole panel in, then chose a sentiment to stamp in the center.

Then I cut another of the same scallop from orange cardstock but used the next smallest oval to cut a window out of it. I inked up the edges with my blending brush, then added liquid glue to add an acetate window to the back side. I lined the oval frame with foam strips, filled my shaker well and added the colored panel to the back to seal it all up.

Finally, I cut the largest oval twice – once from the pink stripe in the Summertime paper pad we saw yesterday and once from white cardstock. I added a score line about 1/2 inch from one of the long side and adhered the two with scrappy tape only on this flap. That created the shaped card base. Last, I used liquid glue to add the shaker mechanism to the top.

Voila! The card is all finished and ready to play with. Isn’t it so fun!
