Surprise Birthday Blog Hop!!



Today is a super special day, we're so glad you're joining us! All of the Newton's Nook Designs DT members have gotten together to throw a surprise birthday blog hop for Jennifer, the owner, illustrator and all around wonderful person behind Newton's Nook! We are so honored to get to work with Jennifer, and we all just love her so much and wanted everyone to celebrate your birthday with you! We hope you have the happiest birthday ever!


I created a cute Birthday card using the Adorable Summer Scoops stamp set. I die cut a piece of pattern paper using the scallop in the Frames and Flags Die set.  I adhered that panel to a Yellow A2 size card base. Then I die cut a piece of watercolor paper using the same die set and added some Lemonade Distress Oxide ink. Once it was dry I added some of the sprinkles form the stamp set and colored them in with Distress Markers. 


I die cut a Pink Banner and then I heat embossed the sentiment using White embossing powder. I adhered it over the panel with some foam tape. I stamped the ice cream images onto some X-Press it blending cardstock and colored them in with Copics. I fussy cut them out and adhered them to the banner. I added some Clear Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen to the ice cream and some Clear Nuvo drops to the sprinkles and topping.

Happy Birthday, Jennifer!!!

I stamped the image onto some white cardstock and then I die cut the panel with the Frames and Flags Die set. Then I adhred the frame to a Kraft Card base.

NND February Release Day 3!



Happy Valentine's Day everyone!!! It's day three of the Newton's Nook Designs February Release and today we are introducing Company of Cats. 


When I first saw this set I knew I wanted to try to create a Monochromatic card in Black and White. 


I stamped the image onto some X-Press it Blending cardstock using Copic Friendly ink. I used a variety of Copic C markers to color the image in. I die cut a Black frame from the Frames and Flags Die set and then I trimmed the image panel to fit inside the Frame. I adhered the frame to a White card base with some foam tape. I wanted a little pop of Silver so I added some Silver Glitter Nuco drops to the center of the collars. 


I die cut two banners with the same die set and stamped the sentiment on the White one and trimmed them to fit along the edge. I used a mini staple to hold them together and adhered them to the card front with some foam tape.

NND February Release Day 2!!



It's day two of the February Release sneaks from Newton's Nook Designs and we are sharing Bitty Bunnies today!!! This set is so cute, I think it may be my Favorite from the release, I mean who doesn't love cute bunnies?


I created an Aqua card base and then I added some pattern papers from Doodlebug Designs off centered a little. I die cut a banner from the Flags and Frames Die set and stamped the sentiment in a coordinating ink color.  This is a pretty clean design for me so I always feel a little out of my comfort zone making these cards.  I stamped the bunny image onto some watercolor paper and colored him in with Distress markers and an aqua brush. Once he was dry I used the coordinating dies to cut him out. I adhered the banner over the pattern papers directly and added some foam tape to the bunny image.

NND February Release Sneak!!




Happy Monday everyone... Are you ready for a peek at the February Release from Newton's Nook Designs? This release if full of Fun images perfect for Easter and just to say Hello! Hop along with us and be sure to leave comments along the way for a chance to Win!! 

Today we are introducing a new Stencil to the line called Cloudy Sky and the Super Adorable Newton's Easter Basket stamp and coordinating die set.



I started with a piece of Distress Watercolor paper and I added some Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink. Once that was dry I added some White embossing paste with the Cloudy sky stencil. I made the clouds thick with some texture. Then I set that piece aside to dry, you can dry with your heat gun if you'd like. I die cut two more pieces of watercolor paper using the banner from Flags and Frames die set and the Land Borders die set. I added some Lucky Clover and Lemonade Distress Oxide inks to the pieces and set them aside to dry. 


I stamped the Newton image onto some watercolor paper with Ranger Archival Ink. This ink is great for watercolor when you don't heat emboss your image. I colored the image in with Distress markers and an Aqua brush. Then I used the coordinating die to cut it out. I cut apart the Happy Easter stamp so I could stamp it in a straight line using my Misti. (Don't worry if you cut your stamps they will go back together and stamp just like new ) I adhered the image over the grass and then added the sentiment banner under the image just a bit. I added so foam tape to the back and adhered it to the right side of the card and trimmed off any excess hanging over. 

So cute... This set is full of great images perfect for Easter!!!

YNS February Release Hop!!



Yay... It's time for the Your Next Stamp February Release and Blog Hop! Hop along with the team as we share a look at all the Fun new products that are now available in the store. Be sure to leave comments along the way for a chance to Win a $25 Gift Certificate to the store. 


My first project features the new Window Panel die and Adorable Spring Treats stamp and coordinating die sets. I die cut the panel from some Naturals cardstock and then I added some Distress Oxide inks to the window pieces creating a background for my scene. I adhered the windows into the panel with some clear tape on the back and adhered the entire panel to a top folding A2 size card base with some foam adhesive. Before I adhered it though I stamped the sentiment from the same set in some Lovely Lilac ink.  I stamped the images onto some X-Press it blending cardstock using the YNS Black Olive Ink and colored the images in with Copics. I die cut the images with the coordinating dies and adhered them to the front with a combination of liquid adhesive and foam adhesive to create varying heights. For a little extra sparkle, I added some Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle pen over parts of the images. 


My second project is my Favorite... I love these new Chicks in the So Egg-citing set. I created a Distress Ink background on a piece of watercolor paper and added some dots with a stencil and embossing paste for a little texture. Then I adhered that panel to a A2 size card base. I die cut two banners using the Fishtail/Banner Die set one. I cut one from some Purple cardstock and heat embossed the sentiment in White and another from the new Fairytale Magic 6x6 Paper Pad. I stamped the egg carton with the chicks onto some X-Press It cardstock and colored the images in with Copics to match the colors in the Pattern paper. I used the coordinating dies to cut the images out and I adhered them over the banner. 

Are you ready to Hop along for some more great projects? See the list of Links below and we have a sale going on in the store too!!

I'm sharing the new Music Chicks Stamp and coordinating die set. These chicks are a riot and I love all the Fun things they've been getting into with each release. This month we have two new Chick sets! I created a background with some Peacock Feathers, Squeezed Lemonade and Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide Inks. I die cut some circles from a White A2 size card front panel using the YNS Circle Die set. I stamped a sentiment from the Music Chicks stamp set on the panel with some Black Olive ink. Then I adhered the Distress panel behind it using some foam tape. 


I stamped each chick image onto some X-Press it blending cardstock using Black Olive ink and colored them in with Copic Markers. I used the coordinating dies to trim them out. Then I adhered them into the circles with some foam tape. I stamped a musical note inside each circle as well. So Cute!!!
