NND Release Day 4




Hello everyone.. It's time for our final Sneak at the Newton's Nook January Release and I think we saved the best for last! I mean it's Newton after all...lol 


Our final set is Happy Mail and it has a coordinating die as well. I created a window card by die cutting a window in both the panel and the card front using the Garden Window Die Set. Then I stamped the image onto some White card stock and colored it with Copics. I used the coordinating Dies to cut it out. I die cut a second image as well with no stamping, I put just the outline of the image on the backside of the colored image after I adhered some foam tape. This covered up the tape so you couldn't see it from the other side when the card is opened. The image is adhered to panel on the edges of the grass and the mailbox. 


On the inside of the card I created a scene with some stencils and Distress inks. I felt it needed a little something extra so I stamped the sentiment in the upper portion of the inside so it would show from the window and I hide a little bird along the bottom. The bird is from the Raccoon Rascals set. I just trimmed him out with my scissors. Super cute!!!

Hello everyone.. I hope you are all having a great week so far! Have you played along with  Marker Pop Challenge #112 yet? This week it's all about the Moon and Stars. You can find all the details on the Challenge in this post here. The challenge is open until Friday January 27th at 11pm est.

I created a cute card today using the Challenge theme and the Lucky set from My Favorite Things.


I started with a piece of Neenah Solar White card stock and I die cut a panel with the MFT Blueprints #15 die-namics set. Then I die cut the center Star area using the MFT Starry Circle Die-namic. I die cut the stars a second time from a piece of the MFT Watercolor Wash 6x6 paper Pack. I added a piece of scarp paper to the back of the panel and then I adhered the blue star panel with some glue. I stamped the sentiment in some Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink using the Mini Misti and set it aside.


I stamped the images from the Lucky set onto a piece of Neenah Solar White using the same Jet Black ink and colored them in with Copics in the following colors:

Moon: Y0000, Y000 & Y00 Stars: B0000, B000 & B00 Clouds: C00, C1 & C3 Cheeks: R20 I also used some 0 on each image.

Once the images were cut out I die cut them with the coordinating dies and adhered them to card front with some glue and foam tape. I added some additional foam tape to the back of the panel and adhered that to a top folding A2 size card base. For a touch of Shimmer I added some Clear Wink of Stella to the Stars and the Moon image. I also added some of the Mixed Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins.

NND Release Day 3 !!



We are half way through our release day previews at Newton's Nook and you will love today's set. Today we are showcasing the new set Pug Hugs...Who doesn't love a Cute Pug? 


I used some pattern paper to create a background that would show through the die cut panel. Then I colored the Pug image with Copic Markers and his little accessories in coordinating colors to match the pattern Paper. I die cut some Balloons from the same papers to match as well and added some distress inks to the edges. 


I stamped the sentiment on the die cut panel and adhered it to the card front with some foam adhesive. I die cut the pug image and adhered those and the balloons with some liquid glue. I used a die cut for the Ballon strings and I drew the strings into the die cut shapes. I wanted a little sparkle but nothing glittery so I added some Sparkling Clear Sequins. So cute!!!

NND January Release Day 1



Happy Monday everyone.. It's time for a new release from Newton's Nook and you are going to Love what we have for you this month! Our first set this month is called Woodland Duos and it coordinates with the current Darling Hearts die.  Be sure to join us each day this week for a new Reveal. The entire release will be available in the shop on Friday!


I stamped the Owl image onto a piece of Kraft card stock and then I die cut the image using the Darling Hearts die. I colored the images in with Prismacolor pencils. I used the Misti to stamp my image and I left the negative die in place while I colored the images. After it was colored I put the image back into the Misti and stamped it again. This helps bring the outline back that you can lose with Colored Pencils. 


I created a Kraft A2 size card base and I added a piece of pattern paper to the front. I also die cut a piece of Kraft paper using a stitched rectangle die and stamped the small heart from the set in some brown ink. Then I stamped the sentiment over in it Black ink. I adhered the panel to the front of the card. Then I adhered the Owl image with some foam adhesive. 


This is such a darling set!

Kindness


Happy Monday everyone...I'm up on the MarkerPop Blog with a card featuring Winnie & Walter. I don’t know about you but I have a habit of buying everything and then never getting around to using it. So this year I’ve decided to pull out those unused stamps in my stash and create.. Plus it’s fun to mix up old stuff you forgot you had with some new stuff.


I’m using the Winnie & Walter Kindness Set. This set had a great collection of sentiments and a mix of Trees. I stamped the images onto a piece of Tim Holtz watercolor card stock using VersaFine Onyx ink. Then I colored the images in with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers in #47 May Green, #44 Deep Green, #25 Pink & #64 Oatmeal. After applying the color I moved it around a little with a slightly damp paintbrush for a watercolor look. I stamped the sentiment onto the panel and trimmed it down to fit a Lawn Fawn Black Licorice card base.


I die cut the word Kindness from the My Favorite Things Kind & Kindness Die-namics set using some Pink card stock. I adhered the sentient over the front of the card using some liquid glue. There’s no dimension I just kept it flat. For a touch of Sparkle I added some Pretty Pink Posh Mixed Sequins in Sparkling Clear. I really like the mix of the MFT die with the sentiment from Winnie & Walter. 

 Both the stamp set and the Die were new in my stash..lol I have a lot of stuff to get out and use. Stay tuned as I mix up a little old with some new! How do you make sure you use your new products? Or are you like me and tend to stash it all for later use? 

 Have a great day..Thank for stopping by!

YNS January Release Blog Hop

I'm showcasing two of the new sets.. Book Monster and Lovin' From the Oven And the new Paper Pad Hugs & Kisses. 


I created a watercolor background with some Distress Ink and then I die cut the panel with the Stitched rectangle Dies. I adhered it to a piece of the new Hugs & Kisses Pattern Paper that I had on a Card front. Then I stamped all the images with the Black Olive ink and colored them in with Copic Markers. I used the coordinating die cut to cut the images out and adhered all the images with some foam tape. The Shelf image is stamped in the YNS Mocha Ink


My second project features the Book Monster set and coordinating Dies. I created a bookmark with some Distress inks for a background scene. I die cut a tag from the Bookmarks Tag Large die set and then I created a stencil with the Puffy Cloud borders die and created the sky. I created a stencil for the grass with the Chunky grass border die. I stamped the image and colored it in with Copics and used the coordinating dies to cut him out. Then I adhered him to the tag and stamped the sentiment. I sealed everything up with some plastic and the Fuse tool. I added some Black Solid Devine Twine for a tassel.
