NND Release Day 2



Hello everyone.. I hope you had a great 3 day weekend. Are you ready for Day 2 of the January Newton's Nook Release? Today we are showcasing the new set Love And Chocolate. This set also has a coordinating dies. 


I created a Distressed background on a piece of watercolor paper with some Picked Raspberry ink and then I used a cross hatched die cut for a decorative edge. I stamped the sentiment in Black ink and colored the hearts in with a Candy Apple Distress Marker. 


I stamped the candy pieces and the stand onto some White card stock and colored them in with Copic Markers. Then I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I adhered the Distressed panel to a A2 size card base and then I added the images with some foam adhesive. These would look look cute with some Glossy Accents on the chocolates as well.

NND January Release Day 1



Happy Monday everyone.. It's time for a new release from Newton's Nook and you are going to Love what we have for you this month! Our first set this month is called Woodland Duos and it coordinates with the current Darling Hearts die.  Be sure to join us each day this week for a new Reveal. The entire release will be available in the shop on Friday!


I stamped the Owl image onto a piece of Kraft card stock and then I die cut the image using the Darling Hearts die. I colored the images in with Prismacolor pencils. I used the Misti to stamp my image and I left the negative die in place while I colored the images. After it was colored I put the image back into the Misti and stamped it again. This helps bring the outline back that you can lose with Colored Pencils. 


I created a Kraft A2 size card base and I added a piece of pattern paper to the front. I also die cut a piece of Kraft paper using a stitched rectangle die and stamped the small heart from the set in some brown ink. Then I stamped the sentiment over in it Black ink. I adhered the panel to the front of the card. Then I adhered the Owl image with some foam adhesive. 


This is such a darling set!

Kindness


Happy Monday everyone...I'm up on the MarkerPop Blog with a card featuring Winnie & Walter. I don’t know about you but I have a habit of buying everything and then never getting around to using it. So this year I’ve decided to pull out those unused stamps in my stash and create.. Plus it’s fun to mix up old stuff you forgot you had with some new stuff.


I’m using the Winnie & Walter Kindness Set. This set had a great collection of sentiments and a mix of Trees. I stamped the images onto a piece of Tim Holtz watercolor card stock using VersaFine Onyx ink. Then I colored the images in with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers in #47 May Green, #44 Deep Green, #25 Pink & #64 Oatmeal. After applying the color I moved it around a little with a slightly damp paintbrush for a watercolor look. I stamped the sentiment onto the panel and trimmed it down to fit a Lawn Fawn Black Licorice card base.


I die cut the word Kindness from the My Favorite Things Kind & Kindness Die-namics set using some Pink card stock. I adhered the sentient over the front of the card using some liquid glue. There’s no dimension I just kept it flat. For a touch of Sparkle I added some Pretty Pink Posh Mixed Sequins in Sparkling Clear. I really like the mix of the MFT die with the sentiment from Winnie & Walter. 

 Both the stamp set and the Die were new in my stash..lol I have a lot of stuff to get out and use. Stay tuned as I mix up a little old with some new! How do you make sure you use your new products? Or are you like me and tend to stash it all for later use? 

 Have a great day..Thank for stopping by!

I'm showcasing two of the new sets.. Book Monster and Lovin' From the Oven And the new Paper Pad Hugs & Kisses.

I adhered it to a piece of the new Hugs & Kisses Pattern Paper that I had on a Card front. Then I stamped all the images with the Black Olive ink and colored them in with Copic Markers. I used the coordinating die cut to cut the images out and adhered all the images with some foam tape. The Shelf image is stamped in the YNS Mocha Ink


My second project features the Book Monster set and coordinating Dies. I created a bookmark with some Distress inks for a background scene. I die cut a tag from the Bookmarks Tag Large die set and then I created a stencil with the Puffy Cloud borders die and created the sky. I created a stencil for the grass with the Chunky grass border die. I stamped the image and colored it in with Copics and used the coordinating dies to cut him out.

You mean the world


Happy Thursday everyone. I'm up on the MarkerPop Blog today with a CAS card featuring the Concord & 9th Map Love set.


I started by stamping the Earth stamp onto a piece of Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor card stock using Mermaid Lagoon Distress Ink. Once I inked the stamped before stamping it onto the card stock I spritzed it with a little water so the image would be a little blurred around the edges. I spritzed the image again once it was on the card stock and dabbed the droplets off with a paper towel. I ran the panel through my Big Shot with the Wonky Stitched Rectangle Die set from My Favorite Things. 


I added a few splatters of Mermaid Lagoon and Black Soot Distress ink around the background and then I adhered the image panel to a Black Licorice card base with some foam adhesive. For a touch of sparkle I added some Sparkling Clear mixed sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. 

 Thanks for stopping by today.

Thinking of you


Happy New Year everyone... I hope you all had a great Holiday season. Today is my first post for the Newton's Nook Design Team and I'm so excited to be joining this team. You will love the new release we have coming up later this month. In the meantime be sure to stop by the NN Blog for some great projects from the new team. 


My card today features the adorable Fox Hollow set and I used the Whispering Pines set to create my scene. I started by stamping the trees onto a White card base using two shades of  Green pigment ink and then I added a dark Green Dye ink on just the edges to create a shadow effect. I really love the watercolor look you get with this set. Then I die cut another panel of White card stock creating a window. I adhered the window panel over the card base with some foam adhesive to pop it up. 


Then I stamped the fox image and colored it in with Copics and I used the coordinating die to cut the image out. I adhered the fox on the outer edge of the window with some foam adhesive. I stamped the large tree image from the Whispering Pines set using the same Green inks onto a scrap piece of paper and I cut a banner out of it and stamped the sentiment. I adhered the onto the edge of the card front. 


I wanted a little more Black so I added some enamel dots in different sizes and some Black Nuvo drops to the nose of each fox. So cute and I love how the coloring of the Foxes came out. 

Head over to the Newton's Nook blog for lots of great inspiration. 

Thanks for stopping by!
