Newton's Nook July Release Day 4!!


Happy Thursday everyone... It's almost time for our New Release Celebration coming on Friday. In the meantime, we have one more day of sneaks for you to hold you over. Today we are sharing Five new mini stamps sets and Four coordinating dies to the lineup!!! 


These are Super Fun little sets perfect for Tags, Mini Cards or you can use them for Full cards as well. Some folks are intimidated by smaller sets but there are many different ways to use them. And they can create a big impact on a card!! 


For my first card, I used our Sunscape Stencil to create a background on a piece of Bristol card stock I die cut with the small rectangle form the Frames and Flags die set. I used Squeezed Lemonade and Salty Ocean Distress Oxide Inks. Then I stamped the sentiment in the lower corner with some VersaFine Black ink. I adhered the panel to a Top folding A2 size White card base. 


I colored the Flip Flops in with Copics in Bright colors so they would really pop against the background. Then I added some Clear Wink of Stella to the Flip Flops for a little shimmer. For an added pop of Sparkle, I added some mixed Sparkling Clear Sequins. This is a great way to showcase the small flip flops and really make them stand out on a full-size card! 


For my next card, I'm using the Pina Koala set, isn't he adorable with that little pineapple? I created a top folding A2 size Black card base and then I die cut a piece of Bristol cardstock with the same small rectangle from the Frames and Flags die set. I added some Mowed Lawn Distress Ink to create a bright background splash. Then I stamped and colored the Koala with Copics making sure to add a little Green to the image. 


I used the coordinating die to trim him out and I adhered him with some foam tape along the side and then I stamped the sentiment in a crisp Black ink. So cute!!!! Which of these mini sets if your Favorite? 

And don't forget to join us tomorrow as well for our Five Year Anniversary party and Blog Hop and all of the new products will be available in the store

Craftin Desert Diva's Creative Challenge "Let's get coloring"


It's time for a new Creative Challenge over at Craftin Desert Divas... This week it's all about Coloring! The team is sharing some great tips on coloring images and sharing lots of great colored inspiration. 

For my project, I'm using the Adorable Believe in Magic Digital Stamp, Star Galaxy Stencil, and the Fancy Frames Die set


I created an A2 size card base and then I added some Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink to a piece of watercolor paper. Once that was dry I added some stars with the Star Galaxy Stencil and some Clear Glitter Paste. I set the panel aside to dry while I worked on my image. I create a card size rectangle in a word program on my computer and then I size my images and sentiments to fit how I want them on the actual card then I print the sheet out, color the images and cut them out with my scissors or my Scan n' Cut. 


Today's challenge is all about coloring so I wanted a Fun image with lots of parts too color. I colored the unicorn image in with Copics and then I added some Clear Wink of Stella to parts of the image for Sparkle. My coloring tip is... use a color wheel or a color chart so you can see what colors are similar and complement each other. A color chart also helps you see what colors you can use together that you wouldn't normally reach for. 

Head over to the Craftin Desert Divas Blog for more great inspiration from the team and lots of great tips. Then head over to the Craftin Desert Divas Gallery on Facebook and let us know what tips you found useful and share your coloring tips!

Newton's Nook July Release Day 3!!



It's Day 3 of the Newton's Nook Designs July Release celebration and today we have two new sets featuring Sharks and Flamingos!!! These sets are similar to the previously released Woof Pack, Company of Cats and Frozen Fellowship. So if you liked these sets Shark Frenzy and Flamingo Flock are must-haves for your collection! 


My first card features Shark Frenzy... I created a Distress Ink background on a piece of watercolor paper and then I stamped and colored the shark image on a piece of X-Press It blending cardstock and colored it in with several shades of Blue and Grey copics. 


Then I trimmed the image out and adhered it to the background with some foam tape. I added some Clear Wink of Stella to parts of the image for a little pop of sparkle. I die cut a sentiment banner using the Frames and Flags die set and stamped the image in Grey ink. 


My next card features Flamingo Flock and I think it's my Favourite!! 


I created a Black card base and then I added a Pink scalloped rectangle using the Frames and Flags Die set. I stamped the Flamingos onto a piece of X-Press it blending cardstock and die cut the panel using the smaller rectangle from the same die set. Then I colored them in with Copics and adhered it to the panel with foam tape. I used the Frames and Flags die set for the sentiment strip as well. 


I wanted a little pop of sparkle on this one so I went with some mixed Sparkling Clear Sequins. This is such a cute set!! Which one is your favorite?

Newton's July Release Sneaks Day 2!



It's day 2 of the July Release from Newton's Nook Designs and the celebration is still going! Today we are introducing Newton's Summer Treats and Cozy Campers. Both of these sets have coordinating dies as well. If you missed Day 1 be sure to scroll down or head over to the Newton's Nook Blog to catch up! 


I paired this Adorable set with some Fun pattern Papers from DoodleBug Designs. 


I adhered the papers to the card base and then I stamped and colored the kittens with Copic Makers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and adhered them with some foam tape. I die cut a sentiment strip using the Frames and Flags Die set. I added some Clear Wink of Stella to parts of the images as well for a touch of Sparkle. 


Up next is Cozy Campers... This is such a Fun set and I have so many ideas brewing for this one. 

I used some Distress Inks to Watercolor the images as well as create the background. I used the larger Frames in the Frames and Flags Die Set as well to matte the image. I wanted it to look like it was a photo you'd hang on a wall. 


This set includes two camper images and lots of fun little extras you can add in to create a scene.

Newton's July Release and Celebration!



Happy Monday everyone... it's time for the Newton's Nook July Release and this month it's a Celebration too!! Newton's Nook Designs is Celebrating 5 years and we have a Huge Release and Blog Hop on Friday to celebrate!! 

We have a Huge Release this week be sure to join us each day for a Sneak at what's coming Friday and leave a comment on each of the Design Team members blogs for a Chance to Win! 

Let's get the sneaks started.... Today we are introducing Three new Stamp sets and Coordinating dies and Two new Stencils. 


My first project shares a look at the new Manatee-rific Stamp and coordinating die set. I also used the Waves Stencil from a previous release to add some texture to the background. This set is unique as the die cuts the arms of the Manatee so it can hold something, like the heart.

I created the background with some Distress Oxide Inks on watercolor paper and then I overlaid the stencil and used some Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink. I trimmed a 1/4" off the sides and stamped the sentiment in Black ink. Then I added some Washi tape to the sides of a White card base and adhered the Main panel in the center with some foam tape. The Manatees are colored with Copics and I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. 

Up next is the super Cute Narly Mermaids Set and I also used the Seashells Stencil on my background with some Glitter Paste.


I added some Distress ink to one side of a piece of Watercolor paper, once it was dry I added some Clear Glitter Paste from Nuvo with the Seashell stencil. I set the panel aside to dry. 


I colored the mermaid image in with Copic markers and then used the coordinating die to trim her out. I die cut a sentiment banner using the Frames and Flags die set and adhered it to the card front with some foam tape and I adhered the mermaid along the edge. 

and our final sneak today is the Purr-Maid Newton stamp and coordinating die and the Tropical Fun Stencil


I added the stencil to the background with several rainbow shades of Distress Ink and then I stamped and colored the images with Copics. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I adhered them with foam tape around the sentiment that I stamped directly onto the card. I wanted a little extra sparkle so I added some Sparkling Clear Sequins.

Rainy Days with Newton's Nook!


Happy Tuesday everyone... I hope your week is starting off good. I'm up on the Newton's Nook blog today with this cute Rainy Days card featuring the Umbrella Pals Stamp and coordinating die set


I created a background on a piece of Bristol paper using a cloud stencil and some Hickory Smoke Distress Oxide Ink. Then I cut the panel with the Frames and Flags Die set and adhered it to a Larger Scalloped rectangle from the same die set. I created a Grey A2 size card base and adhered the panels. 


I stamped the umbrella images onto some X-Press it blending cardstock and colored them in with Copics. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and adhered them to the card front with some foam tape. I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of White cardstock I die cut with the Frames and Flags die set using some Dark Grey ink. I added some Matte Grey enamel dots for an extra pop of the Grey. 

Head over to the Newton's Nook Blog for more great inspiration from the team!!
