NND June Release Sneaks Day 1



Happy Monday everyone... Are you ready for a Peek at the June Release from Newton's Nook Designs? Join us all week as we share all the new Products that will be available on Friday, June 22nd. Today we are introducing Playful Pandas and it's coordinating doe set and two  Brand New Stencil designs... Serene Strips and Sunscape



I won't lie but this Panda set is my Favorite from this release... I have a thing for Pandas..lol 


I created a background with some Antique Linen and Peeled Paint Distress Inks and the new Serene Stripes Stencil. Once the panel was dry I added a few splatters of Black Soot Distress Paint with a small paintbrush. I adhered the panel to a top folding A2 size card base. 


Then I die cut a sentiment banner from some White and Black cardstock using the small banner in the Frames and Flags Die set. I stamped the sentiment along the Right side and adhered the Black banner off to the side a bit to create a shadow. Then I adhered the banner to the card front with some foam tape. I stamped the panda and bamboo onto some X-Press it blending cardstock and colored it in with Copics. I used the coordinating dies to cut the images out and I adhered them over the banner with some foam tape. I wanted an extra pop of Black so I added some Matte Sprinkles from Doodlebug Designs.

I always think of Watermelon in the Summer, it was a staple at every family gathering. So I used the Fun Watermelon Party 6x6 Paper Pad and the super cute One in a Melon stamp set and Coordinating Die set


I created a top folding A2 size card base and then I added some of the Watermelon Party paper to cover the front. I die cut another piece of the paper using the Window Panel die and adhered it over the front with some foam tape.  I stamped the sentiment onto some White card stock using Black Olive ink and die cut it with the Fishtail/Banner One die set


I stamped the flamingo image with some Black Olive ink and colored it in with Copics. Then I used the coordinating dies to cut him out. I adhered it over the edge of the sentiment banner with some foam tape. So cute... this set also features Hamsters and Parrots!

June Blog Hop



Happy Saturday everyone... This month instead of a new release we are sharing our Favorites with a Fun Blog Hop! 

My card features the Just Plane Amazing Stamp set and coordinating die set. I created a distressed background on a piece of watercolor paper with some Salty Ocean Distress Ink. When it was dry I adhered it to a White card base. Then I stamped the sentiment in Black Olive ink along the lower edge. 


I stamped the plane image onto some White cardstock with the Black Olive ink and then I colored it in with Copics. I used the coordinating dies to cut the plane and some clouds out. I added a little color to the clouds with some Grey copics as well. I adhered the clouds and the plane to the background with some foam tape.


I added some Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen to the Windows of the plane. And for an extra pop of sparkle, I added some Enchanted Garden Sparkly Gumdrops.

YNS Challenge #91


It's time for a new challenge on the Your Next Stamp blog. This week we have a Fun new Sketch and Color Combo to choose from or you can mix them up and use them together. 

 


I used the Sketch portion this week along with the new Punny Pineapples stamp and coordinating die set. I created a White card base and then I added some Pattern paper from the Summer Plaid 6x6 paper pad mounted on a piece of Dark Green cardstock. I created the scalloped edge with the Little Ledges die set. I die cut a circle from some watercolor paper using the Circles die set and I added some Salty Ocean Distress Ink to the background. I adhered the circle over the plaid paper in the center. 


I stamped the pineapple images onto some X-press It blending cardstock with Black Olive ink and colored them in with Copics. Then I used the coordinating Punny Pineapple Dies to cut them out and adhered them to the circle with some foam tape. I stamped the glasses in some Almond Latte and Cherry Blossom Inks and cut them out. I added some Clear Nuvo Drops to the lens to create a glass look. Then I adhered them with some more foam tape. 


I stamped the sentiment onto some White cardstock and used the Washi Tape Die to cut it out and adhered it over the lower part of the circle. I added some retired Pine Gumdrops for an extra pop of the Green. So cute!!!

Love is in the air....


Happy Tuesday everyone...I hope you all had a great extended Weekend. I'm up on the Newton's Nook Design Blog today with a card featuring the Balloon Shaker Die set and the Uplifting wishes Stamp set. 


I created a background on a piece of Distress watercolor paper with some Salty Ocean Distress Oxide Ink. Once that was dry I added some Clouds with the Cloud Sky stencil and some White Embossing Paste. While that was drying I die cut a Balloon from the Balloon Shaker Die set from some additional Watercolor paper and added some Antique Rose Distress Oxide Ink around the edges leaving the center light. Then Using some Candied Apple and Black Soot Distress Oxide Inks I inked up the sentiment from the Uplifting Wishes Stamp set. You can do selective stamping by covering up parts of the images you want to be a different color when inking or you cand cut your stamp apart. Yes, I said cut your stamp apart, Don't worry about the Clear stamps they always fit perfectly right back together and stamp just like the did before you cut them. 


I added some Black Soot ink to the String die for the balloon tail and then I added some foam tape to the back of the Balloon image. Once the background panel was dry I adhered it to a top folding A2 size card base and added the balloon image. 

Be sure to head over to the Newton's Nook Blog for more inspiration from the team. Thanks for stopping by today!

YNS Feature Day... Mash it up!!


It's time for our May Feature Day at Your Next Stamp and this month the team was challenged to Mash it up and use two or more stamp sets on their projects. 


I used the Life's a Hoot and Hoot's Up! Stamp sets. I created a card front panel with the largest of the  Stitched Rectangle die set and then I added some circles with the Circles die set and then Stitching Marks Circle die set. I created a top folding A2 size card base and added some Clouds behind where the circle would be on the card base with the Puffy Cloud Border Die set. I adhered the top panel with some foam tape over the card base. 


I stamped the Owl images from Life's a Hoot onto some Bristol paper and colored them in with Distress markers and an Aqua Brush. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and then I adhered them inside the circles with foam tape. Then I die cut a banner from the Cool Tag Three die set and stamped a sentiment from Hoots Up! using Black Olive Ink. I adhered that off to the side and then I added a few Sparkly Spooky Cute Gumdrops

Head over to the YNS Blog for more Mash-Ups from the Design Team and be sure to leave a comment while you are there for a chance to Win a Stamp set of your choice.

NND May Release Day 4!!



Happy Thursday everyone, It's our final reveal day at Newton's Nook and tomorrow the entire release will be available in the shop!!! You didn't think we forgot about Newton, did you? Today we are introducing two new Newton sets... Newton's Donut and Newton Loves Boxes! Each set also has a coordinating die set. 



My first card featured Newton's Donut and some Fun pattern papers from Doodlebug Designs. 


I created an A2 size White card base and then I added some pattern papers. The donut paper layer has some Fun Foam behind it for a little height. Then I die cut a sentiment banner from the Frames and Flags Die set and stamped the sentiment along the Right side. I adhered to the banner with some Foam tape. Using a mix of Fun Foam and Foam Tape gives you different heights in your layers without making your card too bulky. 


I stamped and colored Newton in with Copic markers and then I used the coordinating dies to cut him out. I added some Clear Nuvo drops over the sprinkles for a little shine. 


The Newton Loves Boxes set is perfect for any cat owner... What cat doesn't love a good box? I paired the Newton image with some more Pattern Papers from my Stash. I covered an A2 size card base with the wood paper and then I used the new Framework die set to cut the scalloped rectangle piece out. I added some Fun foam and adhered it in the center of the card. I added a strip along the top of some Polka Dot paper and then I die cut a sentiment banner from some more of the coordinating papers using the Frames and Flags die set. 


I stamped and colored the Newton image with Copic Markers and used the coordinating dies to cut him out. Then I adhered him over the sentiment with some foam tape. I wanted an extra pop of the Green so I added some coordinating enamel dots.
