Bonjour

Hello everyone.. I'm up on the Newton's Nook blog today with a new video and this fun card featuring the Newton Dreams of Paris set. 


I started by creating a Distress Ink background on two pieces of watercolor paper using some Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean Distress Ink and then Mowed Lawn and Shabby Shutters. I die cut both pieces with a small stitched rectangle die. Then I used the Newton's Nook Land borders Die to cut the hill from the Green panel. I adhered both panels together using some foam tape. Then I stamped each of the images onto some Copic friendly paper and colored them in and used the coordinating dies. 


I adhered the images with foam tape and Ranger Multi Medium Matte adhesive. Then I adhered the panel to a Black Scalloped Rectangle and added it to the top folding White card base. 

You can see more details on how I created this card in the video below.. Thanks for stopping by today... Head over to the Newton's Nook Blog for more inspiration!

YNS Feature Day!!


Happy Saturday everyone.. It's time for our Feature Day at Your Next Stamp and this month it's all about "Little Ones".  The Design Team have created some cute Baby themed cards and some little cards. 


I went with some Baby Cards.. Or you could use them for just Congratulations too! 

I stamped the images from the Tweet News set onto some Copic friendly card stock using YNS Black Olive ink and then I colored them in with my Copics in colors to match the Just for Fun 6x6 Papers I used. Once the images were colored I used the coordinating die cut and cut them out. For the background I die cut the large Puffy Cloud from the Puffy Cloud Die set from some heavyweight card stock and then I used an ink blending tool and some YNS Blue Curacao ink


I die cut the panel with a small Stitched Rectangle and stamped the sentiment from the same set using the Black Olive Ink. Then I adhered the birds with some foam adhesive. I die cut some coordinating patter papers from the Just for Fun pad with the Stitched Rectangles as well as the image panel and adhered them all to A2 size card bases. There is a white stitched panel on the inside with Congratulations stamped on it. 

This is a fun set to use for Birthday's or Congratulations. Head over to the YNS Blog for more inspiration from the team and leave a comment while you are there for a chance to WIN a stamp set of your choice!

Thanks for Hopping by...


Hey everyone.. I'm over on the Right at Home Blog with a cute card featuring the Bunny Hop set. This is a great set that can be used for other occasions, not just Easter. 


Head over to the Right at Home blog for all the details! 

Have a great weekend! 

Hello ..



Hello everyone.. I was over on the MarkerPop Blog this week with another watercolor card and process video. I’m using the Concord & 9th Hello Lovely set and some Gansai Tambi Watercolors. 


 I started by stamping the flower image onto a piece of watercolor paper and then I heat embossed it using some White embossing powder. Then I taped the image panel to a board using some painter’s tape. I added some clear water around the image and then I dropped in some Light Blue using a wet paintbrush. This is the wet on wet technique. Then I heat set the area with my heat tool. I repeated the same process with the rest of the image. Adding in color within each embossed area and drying in between layers. 


 Once the image was dry I trimmed the panel to 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ and added it to a top folding Black card base. I stamped Hello from the same set and heat embossed it onto a piece of Black card stock using White embossing powder and trimmed it out with my large scissors. I adhered it to the image with some foam tape. This is a great image to practice watercolor with, it has lots of great large images and it can be embossed. 

 You can see more details on how I created this in the video below…

NND April Release Day 4!



Happy Thursday!! It's Day 4 of the Newton's Nook April Release and that means all of the products will be available in the store tomorrow... Yay!! 

Today we are sharing the newest Newton inspired set.. Newton's Birdbath and it's coordinating die. 


This is such a cute set and I love the scenes you could create with all the little images. I created a White top folding card base and then I added some rainbow paper that I die cut with a Large stitched rectangle die. Then I die cut two pieces of patter papers that had a faux watercolor look using another stitched die and layered them together. I stamped the sentiment into the lower corner and adhered that piece to the card front with some foam adhesive. 


I stamped all of the images onto some Copic friends paper and colored them in with Copics and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. Before I adhered the images I added some Jeweled Sea Breeze Nuvo drops to the water in the bird bath and some Might Night Sky Glittered Nuvo Drops t the Butterfly bodies. I let those dry then I adhered the images to the card front. I liked to do this step first just incase something goes wrong with the drops..lol

NND Release Day 3


It's day 3 of the Newton's Nook April release and today we are sharing a Fun Sentiment set called Simply Relative. This is one of those must have sets that are perfect when you need a sentiment for someone related. There are lots of sets for Mom and Dad but what about your brother, Aunt, Cousin etc. 


I mixed this set up with a bloom image from the new Lovely Blooms set. I used it to create a wood look. I stamped with the back of the stamp all over a piece of Kraft card stock creating a pattern. Then I flipped the stamp over and stamped the spiral image with Black ink over the dots. This is a great was to get more out of your stamps too. Then I die cut the panel and adhered it to a card base. I stamped the sentiment onto two banners and adhered them at opposite ends. I die cut a deer head from the Splendid Stags die set and added some color with Distress inks and adhered that over the banner. For an extra pop of Black I added some enamel dots.

Lovely Blooms



Happy Tuesday everyone.. are you ready for Day 2 of the April Release from Newton's Nook? Today we are sharing a look at the new set Lovely Blooms and it's coordinating die set. We all know by now I have an obsession for all things Distress Ink... So I had to create another background for my project. 


I used some Salty Ocean and Hickory Smoke Distress ink to create the background on a piece of watercolor paper and then I mounted it to a White card base. Then I stamped the images from the Lovely Blooms set onto some White card stock and colored them in with Copic Markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and adhered them to the card front with some liquid glue and foam tape. I wanted the center of the flowers to be a light green color so I added some Gloss - Apple Green Nuvo Drops. While that was drying I worked on the sentiment. 


I stamped the sentiment onto some White card stock and used a banner die to trim them out I adhered them over the jar image with some foam tape. For the word Grandma, I stamped it and then fussy cut around the image and adhered that directly onto the jar with no dimension. This set is great for anyone who loved flowers or creating arrangements.
