NND reveal Day 3!!



Happy Wednesday!!! Its' day three of the Newton's Nook August Reveal and today we are introducing Knight's Quest and its coordinating dies. This is another magical set in this release complete with a Dragon. 


I created a project using just the banner in the set and the Fun Hear Ye! Hear Ye! sentiment. 


I created a Sand colored card base and then I added a piece of pattern paper from Echo Park that I die cut with a stitched rectangle die. Then I die cut another piece of that sand colored card stock and stamped the fleur de lis randomly with some VersaMark ink. Then I stamped the sentiment along the bottom. 


I stamped the banner image and sentiment onto some Bristol card stock and colored it in with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and a water brush. Then I used the coordinating dies to cut it out. I adhered it above the sentiment with some foam tape. This is a really fun set to pair with the Once Upon a Princess set as well.

NND Aug Release Reveal Day 2



Hello everyone... It's Day Two of the August Reveal from Newton's Nook and today we are sharing the Adorable new set Once Upon a Princess and it's coordinating dies. 

This month's release is full of magic and fairy tales. I started out by die cutting some Fun pattern papers from Echo Park using some Stitched Rectangle dies and layering them onto an A2 sized card base. I die cut a piece of Bristol paper to create the background with a smaller stitched rectangle and the NND Land borders die set. I added some Distress Oxide inks to create the sky and ground area.


I stamped the images from Once Upon a Princess in Ranger Archival Black ink onto some additional Bristol paper and colored them in with Distress markers and a water brush. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and adhered them with some foam tape. For an extra pop of color, I added some enamel dots from my stash. So cute....

NND August Reveal Day 1


Happy Monday everyone.. Who's ready for a new release from Newton's Nook Designs? Today we are introducing a Fun new set called Believe in Unicorns and its coordinating dies.  



I started my card with a piece of Bristol Smooth paper and then I added some Tumbled Glass Distress ink using the Smooshing Technique. Once the panel was dry I added some water splatters and dabbed the water up with a paper towel to create the Distressed look. Then I adhered the panel to a Card base. I stamped the sentiment in the lower corner using VersaFine Black ink. 


I stamped the images from the Believe in Unicorn set onto some X-Press it blending cardstock using Lawn Fawn Black Ink and then I colored them in with Copics. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I adhered each image with some foam tape. For some sparkle, I added some Mixed Sparkling Clear Sequins from Prett Pink Posh. This is a must have set if you are a fan of Unicorns!!!

Pink & Main August Release


Hello everyone.. I hope you had a great weekend! Today I'm sharing a card and video with products from the latest release from Pink & Main. Their new release hit the store on Aug. 10th and it's full of Fall Fun. I'm using the Fall Bouquet set and it's coordinating dies and the new Pumpkin Spice 6x6 Paper Pad. You can find all these products in the Pink & Main store and many of your other favorite retailers.


I started by die cutting two pieces of the Pumpkin Spice paper with a Large Stitched Rectangle die. Then trimmed one side of the plaid paper and adhered it to the Chocolate piece. I added a piece of Turquoise ribbon to create a seam between the two pieces of paper. Then I adhered the entire panel to a Saffron A2 size card base. Then I stamped the sentiment onto a scrap of the pattern paper and heat embossed it in White. I adhere d it to the lower edge of the card with some foam tape. 


I stamped the floral image onto some Bristol paper using some Ranger Archival Black ink. I colored the images in with some Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers in coordinating colors to match the papers. I die cut the image using the coordinating die and adhered it to the card with some foam tape as well. For an extra pop of Yellow, I added some Enamel Dots I had in my stash. 

You can see more details on how I created this card in the video below... Stay tuned for another project this week featuring the new Happy For You stamp and Die from the August Release. 


And a Huge Thank You to Michelle from Pink & Main for sending me these cute products to work with!

You Color My World!!


Happy Wednesday everyone... It's time for our monthly Design Team Dare at Your Next Stamp. This month the team was challenged to create a project with the theme "Color Me Happy". 


I created a Bright card using the Rainbow Fun Die and a great sentiment from One in a Chameleon set. I created a background on a piece of White cardstock using some Salty Ocean Distress Oxide Ink and then I trimmed the panel with the Large Stitched rectangle die from YNS. I adhered the panel to a Black card base and then I stamped the sentiment in the lower corner using some Black Olive Ink so I could color parts of it with Copic Markers. 


I die cut the clouds and rainbow image from some White cardstock and then I added some color with Copic markers. I adhered the rainbow with some liquid glue then I added a few of the clouds with some foam tape. I wanted a little sparkle so I added some Sparkle Gumdrops. This a Fun die set that has two rainbows and clouds to mix it up with. 

Head over to the YNS Blog to see what the other team members created and leave a comment while you are there for a chance to Win a stamp set of your choice.
