NND August Release Sneaks Day 4!!



It's our final day of the August Release Sneaks at Newton's Nook Designs. All of the new products will be available in the store tomorrow August 17th! Today we have Three new sets with coordinating dies. 

Our First set is Halloween Trio... 

This set sentiment and cute little bats dies included as well. For my card, I created a Distress Ink Background using two Shades of Purple and then once it was dry I added the new Flying Bats stencil with some Black Embossing Paste.


Once that was dry I adhered it to a Card base and then I stamped the image onto some Copic friendly paper and colored it in. I used the coordinating die to cut it out and then I stamped the sentiment onto a smaller Banner. 

Up next is... Candy Corn. 

This is a cute little set to make your own background paper, Tags, Mini cards and you can create full-sized cards as well. 


I used the Frames and Flags Die set to create to panels and then I layered them onto a Full-size card base. For the focus panel, I added some Distress Oxide Ink and some Black Soot Paint Splatters. Then I stamped the sentiment in Black Ink. Then I stamped and Colored the Candy Corn images with Copics and used the coordinating dies to trim them out. I adhered them with some Foam tape and added some Clear Sequins for a little sparkle. 

Our final set of the release is... Boo Hoo. 

This is such a cute little set as well... Perfect for creating scenes. 


I added some Distress Inks to a Watercolor panel and then I added some Distress Oxide Ink to a Fence Die I cut out. I assembled the scene and then I adhered the images after coloring them with Copics. 

So what was your Favorite from this release? It's hard to pick just one if you ask me!!

NND August Release Sneaks Day 3!!



Happy Wednesday everyone... it's Day Three of our August Release from Newton's Nook and today we have a Fun Halloween set and a new Stencil! 

Say Hello to Hoppy Halloween and the Flying Bats Stencil... 



For my card today I used the Bat stencil in the background over some Black Soot Distress Oxide watercolor with some Translucent Embossing Paste.


I created the Black Soot background on a piece of watercolor paper and then once it was dry I added the bats with the stencil and the embossing paste. I set it aside to dry and then adhered the panel to a card base. While that was drying, I stamped the three bunny images and the candy onto some X-Press It Blending cardstock and colored them in with Copics. Then I used the coordinating dies to trim them out. 


I adhered the bunnies with some foam tape and then little pieces of candy directly down with some liquid glue. I die cut a banner from a retired die and stamped the sentiment and adhered it in the upper corner. So cute... and I love how those Bats look in the background! This is another must have set!

We're kicking things off with Classy Teachers and it's coordinating die set. 


I love this set, it's perfect for creating Thank You's for Teachers. You can make cards or Tags... so many options with this set. 


I created an A2 card base and then I added some Fun Pattern Papers from my stash. I stamped each teacher image onto some X-Press It Blending card stock and colored them in with Copics. I used the same colors throughout each image. I colored the chalkboard Green and then I heat embossed the sentiment onto it. 


I used the coordinating dies to cut the images out and then I adhered them to the card front with some Foam tape. I added a little extra highlight with a White Gel Pen. So cute... I can't wait to make more of these for the teachers.

My first project shares the new Confetti Panel die and the Super Cute PAWsome Pups Stamp and Die set. I also used the new Rainbow Sparkly gumdrops


I die cut the panel die from some White cardstock and then I added a piece of watercolor paper behind it that I added some Distress inks to in Rainbow colors. Then I adhered that panel to a Card base with some Fun Foam. I die cut the sentiments using the new Talk Bubble Die and some Black Olive Ink. Then I stamped each of the images onto some X- Press It blending cardstock and colored them in with Copics. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. 


I adhered the images with some Foam tape and then I added the gumdrops. So cute!!! I think this is my Favorite set from the release, these images are so fun to color! 


For my second project, I created a Gift Card holder using the new Gift Card Holder Die and the Cool Cats Stamp and Coordinating die set. I cut the gift card holder from some Black cardstock and then I added some Pattern paper I had in my stash. I used the extras in the die set to cut those out as well. Then I stamped and colored the image and used the dies to cut him out. I adhered him over the little half circle that you slip the top into to close the gift card. I added a few more of the Rainbow Gumdrops and used the Talk Bubble die. 


There are three sentiments in this die set as well that you can die cut so I used just for you and adhered it on the backside of the gift card holder.

Big Wishes!!


Happy Tuesday everyone... I hope you are having a great start to the week so far. I'm up on the Newton's Nook Blog today with these Fun Big Wishes card. 

I created the background on a piece of watercolor paper using the Confetti stencil and several shades of Distress Inks. Then I trimmed a 1?4 in off each side and adhered it to a top folding A2 size card base. I stamped the images from the Holding Happiness Stamp set onto some X-Press It blending cardstock and colored them in with Copics that matched the ink I used on the background.


I used the coordinating dies to cut the images out and then I adhered them to the front of the card with foam tape. I die cut to Banners from some White cardstock using the Frames and Flags Die set as well and I added some Picked Rasperberry Ink to the larger one. Once that was dry I stamped the sentiment in Black ink and layered the banners with foam tape. 


I wanted a little pop of Sparkle on the card so I added some Clear Wink of Stella to several parts of the images. This gave it just a little sparkle without taking away from the background. 

Thanks for stopping by today... Head over to the Newton's Nook Blog for more inspiration from the team.
