Newton's Nook Holiday Release Day 1

It's time for the Newton's Nook Holiday Release Sneaks!!! You are going to love this release and it's a big one... So many stamps and dies perfect for all your Holiday Crafting!

Today we are introducing two new stencils and Holiday Foliage and Snowfall... 

And two Stamp sets.... 


All Aboard For Christmas (and it's coordinating dies) and Holiday Sentiments

My first card today uses Holiday Sentiments and the Holiday Foliage Stencil. 

I used the stencil to dry emboss with and created a soft detailed background. Then I added some Gold Thread and a Stag head (Splendid Stags Die Set) die cut from some Gold Glitter paper. I stamped the sentiment from the new Holiday Sentiments onto some Vellum and Heat embossed it with Gold SParkle Embossing Powder from Wow. Then I trimmed it out with my scissors. I added some foam tap behind the sentiment and adhered it over the thread. I added a few Gold Sequins for more sparkle. 

My second card features the new All Aboard for Christmas and it's coordinating dies. And the houses in the background are a sneak at another new set coming later this week... 

I created a scene and colored the images in with Distress markers and adhered the panel to a White card base. Then I stamped all of the Train images onto some Bristol Smooth and colored them with Distress Markers as well. Once they were dry I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I added some extra details with Nuvo Drops and Stickles.

Be Merry YNS DT Dare!

Happy Wednesday everyone... It's time for our Monthly Dare at Your Next Stamp. This month the team was challenged to create a project with a "Be Merry" theme. 

I'm using the new set A Cute Holiday Stack and it's coordinating die. I started with a A2 size card base and I die cut two pieces of the new Holiday Joy 6x6 Papers using the Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered them onto the card base off centering the smaller panel. I stamped the sentiment to onto a piece of White card stock using YNS Black Olive ink and I die cut the sentiment using the Fishtail/Banner One die set. Then I adhere it along the left side using some foam tape on part of the banner. 

I stamped the image onto some X-Press it blending cardstock using the Black Olive ink and I colored it in with Copic markers. Then I used the coordinating die to cut the image out. I adhered the image along the right edge placing the banner over part of the image.

Then I added lots of foam tape to the back and adhered it to a 3 1/4" by 3 1/4" card. 

I stamped the Hammie image and the little hat onto some Bristol Smooth paper using Archival Black ink and I colored them in with Distress Markers and an Aqua brush.

Happy Birthday!!

I was up on the MarkerPop blog the other day with a Fun card using the Citrus Summer set from WPlus9. This is a great set that coordinates with a few others from that release as well. 

I started with a piece of Bristol Smooth paper and then I stamped the solid image of the Pineapple and stems using Distress inks. I used Squeezed Lemonade and Mustard Seed for Pineapple and Peeled Paint for the stems. I stamped each image with the Distress ink and then I spritzed it before stamping down onto the paper. Once I had the images stamped where I wanted them I spritzed the paper making the ink move around a little and I heat set it with a heat tool. I added a few splatters of the same colors of Distress Ink and heat set it on more time. Then I stamped the outline images over the Solid images off centered just a little with VersaFine Jet Black Ink.

Then I added a few splatters of Black Soot Distress Paint to the background and heat set everything one last time. I trimmed a 1/16 of an inch of each side and adhered the panel to a top folding Black Licorice card base. I stamped the label and sentiment from the Basic Label set in VersaFine Black ink and used the coordinating die cut to trim it out. I adhered the label over the pineapples with some foam tape. I added some Sequins from the Neat & Tangled Peacock Feathers Mix and Pretty Pink Posh Black 4mm.

Falling Leaves.....

Happy Tuesday everyone... I'm up on the Newton's Nook Design Blog today with a Cute Newton card perfect for Fall.

I started with a piece of watercolor paper and I added some Tumbled Glass Distress ink to the background. Then I added some of the leaves from the NND Falling Leaves Stencil. I used some mini ink daubers and Distress Oxide Inks to select certain areas of the stencil. Once the panel was dry I added some water splatters and heat set the panel with my heat tool, this creates the Oxide effect. I added some Peeled Paint Distress Oxide Ink to a piece of Woodgrain cardstock and die cut it using the Land Borders die and a stitched Rectangle. I adhered it to the lower edge of the panel. 

I adhered the panel to a Yellow card base and then I stamped the sentiment from the Autumn Newton Stamp set in the upper corner. I stamped Newton from the same set onto some Watercolor paper and Colored him in with Distress Ink markers and a Water-brush. I used the coordinating die to trim him out. I adhered the image to the card front with some foam tape. 

You can see more details on how I created this card in the video below... and be sure to stop by the Newton's Nook Blog for lots more inspiration from the Team!

MPC#130 Falling For Fall

Happy Monday everyone. It's time for a new challenge over on the MarkerPop Blog and this week it's a Fall Color Challenge. 

I'm using the Autumn Leaves die set from Newton's Nook Designs and the My Favorite Things Grateful for you Stamp and Die set. I started with a piece of Tim Holtz Watercolor Distress card stock and I added some Faded Jeans and Salty Ocean Distress Oxide Inks to create a background. Then I die cut Grateful from the Tim Holtz Woodgrain cardstock Three times and layered them together. I added some Vintage Photo Distress Ink around the upper portion of the sentiment having it fade out. 

I die cut the Autumn Leaves from some Tim Holtz Watercolor paper and then I added some Distress Oxides Inks in Fired Brick, Fossilized Amber, Wild Honey, Walnut Stain and Vintage Photo. Once they were dry I added some Tim Holtz Crackle Paint to the leaves and heat set it with my heat tool. It created a fun glossy cracked effect to the leaves. 

I adhered the Panel to a top folding A2 size card base and then  I added the sentiment and the leaves just above with some mini Glue Dots. I stamped For you onto a scrap of White in Lawn Fawn Doe ink and adhered it with some Foam tape.
