Yay.... Who's ready for the September Release from Your Next Stamp? All of the new products are now available in the Store. Be sure to leave comments along the way on each blog as you're hopping for a chance to Win a $25 Gift Certificate to the store. 

I'm sharing two cards today... My first features the new Autumn Harvest stamp set and coordinating dies. I'm also using the new Grass Tufts border die.


I created a background on some watercolor paper with Distress Inks and then I die cut the grass tufts border and added some Distress Ink as well. I stamped the sentiment along the edge of the grass border and adhered that to the card front. Then I stamped each image onto some X-Press It Blending cardstock with Your Next Stamp Black Olive ink and colored them in with Copics. I used the coordinating dies to cut the images out.


Then I adhered the images onto the card and added a few Carrot Cake Gumdrops for an extra pop of Green. 

For my second card, I'm using the new Wonky Door and Trash Can dies and the Adorable new Silly Trash Monsters Stamp and Die set. 


I created a background scene to look like a building using a brick stencil from my stash and I created a cloud stencil with the Puffy Cloud Borer Die set. I also added some grass with the new Grass Tufts Border die as well. I die cut the scene with the Large Stitched Rectangle die set. Once I had my background scene created I die cut the Door and added some color to it and then I created some Steps. I die cut the trash can and added some Black ink to it and adhered it onto the card with some foam tape. I did cut a sentiment banner and added it to the upper corner. 


I stamped the Trash Can Monster image onto some X-Press It blending cardstock with Black Olive ink and colored him in with Copics. I used the coordinating dies to cut him out and adhered him with some foam tape. 

This is such a Fun Release full of lots of great images for Fall and Halloween!!  Let's get hopping to see some more great inspiration... Don't forget to leave comments along the way! The Hop ends on September 19th at 12am est.

Newton's Nook September Release Sneaks Day 3!



Happy Wednesday everyone... It's Day 3 of the September Sneaks from Newton's Nook Designs. Today we are sharing a peek at Harvest Tails and it's coordinating die set. I'm also using the new Tree Ring Stencil on my project. This will also be available in the store on Friday. 


I started by adding the Tree Ring Stencil to piece of Watercolor Cardstock with some Walnut Stain Distress Ink.  and then I added some Vintage Photo ink around the edges. I added some water droplets and picked up the excess with a paper towel. Then I set the piece aside to dry on its own. Once it was dry I stamped the sentiment in the upper corner and adhered the panel to an A2 size card base. 


Next, I die cut several leaves from the Autumn Leaves Die set out of watercolor paper. I added several shades of Distress Inks in Fall colors and then I added some Crackle Paint over each leaf. I set them aside to dry on their own as well. Each image was stamped on some X-Press It blending cardstock and colored with Copics. Then I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. 


I adhered the leaves to the tree ring with some mini glue dots and then I added the images over the leaves with some glue dots and foam tape for varying heights. How adorable are these animals??

Newton's Nook September Release Sneaks Day 2!!



It's Day Two of the September release sneaks from Newton's Nook and today we are introducing Newton's Pumpkin Patch. 


This set is similar to Company of Cats, Flamingo Flock, and Shark Frenzy to just name a few. If you are a fan of this style then you will want to add Newton's Pumpkin Patch to your collection as well. 


I stamped the cats onto some watercolor paper and colored them in with Distress Inks and then I adhered the panel to a top folding A2 size card base. I created some frames using the Frames and Flags Die set and adhered them over the image offsetting each one. I created a Banner with the same die set and added some Peacock Feathers Distress Ink to each. Once it was dry I stamped the sentiment in Black Ink. I adhered the Banner along the edge with some foam tape. 


This is a Fun set to color in any medium and you can do so many different techniques with it.

Newton's Nook Designs September Release Sneaks Day 1



Happy Monday everyone...Are you ready for a peek at the September Release from Newton's Nook Designs? This month it's all about Fall and you will want everything in this release it's all so cute! 

Today we are sharing a peek at two new stamps and coordinating dies and introducing two new stencils to our lineup! 


Newton's Thanksgiving is up first and this is an adorable set perfect for cards, place settings and more! I created a card using the Out of frame scattered stamping technique I shared last week. I created the frame and then added some Tumbled Glass Distress Ink for my background. I masked off the images before adding the Distress Ink. 


I removed the make and colored the images in with Copics and then I stamped the Newton Image onto some X-Press It Blending cardstock and colored him in with Copics as well. I used the coordinating dies to cut him out and I adhered him with some foam tape. Then I stamped the sentiment in the lower corner. 



Our second set today is Newton's Cornucopia...


I also used the Pumpkin Patch stencil on my card and a peek at a new sentiment set coming as well. 


I created the background on a piece of watercolor paper using gold embossing paste with the stencil then while the past was still dry I added some Gold glitter. Once the panel was dry I added some Vintage Photo Distress ink around the edges. 


I stamped the Newton image onto some X-Press It Blending cardstock and colored it in with Copics. I used the coordinating dies to cut it out and adhered it to the front of the card with some foam tape. The sentiment is from a new set coming later in the week.

CDD Creative Challenge.. Let's get Shaking!


It's Shaker Week over on the Craftin' Desert Divas Blog and today is our Creative Challenge. The Design Team is sharing some Fun Shaker projects and sharing tips for creating Shaker Cards. 


I created a Shaker Tag with the Super Cute Be a Unicorn Digital stamp and the Shaker Tag Die Set. I created the Tag with some Bristol paper and then I added some Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide ink to it and let it dry. When it was dry I added some Acetate to the window opening on the backside and created a foam layer for my shaker. I'm using flat bubbles for my shaker so I only used one layer of foam tape. If you are using thicker bubbles always double up on your layer so your items can move around more. I used the Twinkle Sequins and some Starstruck sequins for inside my shaker. I closed p the shaker by added some extra foam tape to the back of the tag and adhered another to the back of it. Then I die cut the bow from the Shaker tag die and added some Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Ink to that and assembled. 


I printed out the unicorn image onto some X-Press It blending cardstock and then I colored it in with Copics. I fussy cut the image out and adhered it to the tag with some foam tape. I printed the sentiment and trimmed it into a banner and adhered that with foam tape as well.

Head over to the Craftin Desert Divas Blog for more Shaker inspiration from the team!
