Newton's Nook Oct Release Day 4!!


It's Day Four of the Newton's Nook Designs October Release and the Fun isn't over yet! This is a big release and we hope you are loving all the new products. Today we have Four more new sets for you and all of the products will be available in the store tomorrow. 

Up first is Slothy Christmas and it's coordinating dies... 
Okay seriously, How cute is this guy? I created a Distress Ink background on a piece of watercolor paper with some Salty Ocean ink and then I added some water spots. Once that was dry I added some snow with embossing paste and then new Petite Snow stencil. I trimmed a 1/4" off the side and adhered the panel to a White card base where I also added a strip of Black n' White pattern paper along the edge. 


I created a banner for my sentiment with the Frames and Flags die set and then I die cut "Christmas" from the Holiday Greetings die with some Red Glitter paper. I stamped and colored the Sloth image and used the coordinating dies to cut it out. 


Happy Howl-idays is up next this set also has a coordinating die set... 
I created a scene for my background with the new Evergreens stencil and Distress Inks. Then I adhered the panel a to a White card base. The sentiment is stamped along the bottom in the snow. 


I stamped and colored the images in and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. For a little extra dimension, I adhered them with some foam tape. There is a mix of sequins and gems in the background for a bit of sparkle. 

These next two sets are mini sets... Fleece Navidad 

I created a scene with the Frames and Flags Die set and the new Forest Builder Die set and the hill is created with the Land borders die set. I die cut Merry & Bright from the Holiday Greetings die set from some Glitter paper and adhered it over the trees. 


On the card base I added some snowflakes with the Petite Snow stencil and some Distress Ink and then I adhered the panel in the center. I stamped and colored the sheep image and used the coordinating die to cut it out. I popped it up with some foam tape. 


and Mistle-Toad...

I think this little set is Adorable as well. I die cut a piece of pattern paper using the Frames and Flags Die set and then adhered it to a White card base. I die cut a second scallop with the Framework Die set and added some Picked Raspberry Distress Ink to the background. I stamped and colored the image and used the coordinating die to trim it out. Then I added some Sparkling Clear sequins for some extra sparkle.

Newton's Nook Oct Release Day 3!



It's Day Three of the October Release from Newton's Nook Designs and today we are sharing the Holiday Stocking Stamp and Ornamental Wishes Stamp sets and the Ornamental Shaker Die set. The Holiday Stocking stamp set coordinates with the Stylish Stocking Die set. 



My first project is using the Holiday Stocking set and Stylish Stocking Die set. 


I created a Kraft card base and then I stamped the sentiment in the center of the card. I die cut some Pattern Paper using a small stitched circle die. Then I adhered the circles around the sentiment. I stamped each stocking image onto some X-PRess It blending cardstock and colored them in. I used the coordinating die to cut them out. I stamped the top of the stocking image onto a piece of pattern paper and cut them out and then added some shading with a Copic. 


For my next card, I went a little Retro or that was the feeling I was trying to get. 


I created a Distress Ink Background on a piece of watercolor paper using Twisted Citron and then I added some water drops and picked them up with a paper towel for the Distressed look. Once that was dry I added some circles with a stencil and some White pigment ink to create a Bokeh effect. Then I die cut the shaker from some Woodgrain Watercolor paper and added some Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I die cut the tops of the ornaments from some Silver paper and adhered those to the card front. 


I created the Shaker using the sentiment from the Ornamental Wishes on the inside and filled it with a Christmas Shaker filling. I adhered the shaker over the other two ornaments. I took some of the trees and gems from the filling and created some Holly for the top of the ornament.

The Nutcracker Squeak... (Shhh, I think this might be my Favorite from this release.)

And... Caroling Newton.
I've got two projects for you, up first is The Nutcracker Squeak and the new Petite Snow Stencil


I created a Distress Ink background on a piece of watercolor paper and then I added some Snowflakes with the Petite Snow Stencil and some White embossing paste. Then I added another panel over it that I die cut circles into. I also stamped the sentiment before I adhered the layer. 


I stamped the images onto some X-Press It blending cardstock and colored them in with Copics. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and I adhered the images with some foam adhesive. I wanted a pop of sparkle so I added some Sparkling clear Sequins. 

My second card shares Caroling Newton and the new Music Stencil as well. 


I created a White card base and then I die cut some Watercolor paper with the Frames and Flags Die set. I added the Music Stencil with some Vintage Photo Distress Ink and then I adhered it to the card base. I die cut another piece of Woodgrain watercolor paper with the smaller rectangle in the same die set and added some Salty Ocean Distress Oxide Ink to the background and stamped some of the musical notes in Black. 


I stamped the images onto some X-Pres It blending cardstock and colored them in with Copics then I used the dies to cut them out. I adhered them over the panel with some foam tape and added some Clear Wink of Stella to parts of the image. So cute!!!
