Bunny Butt with Newton's Nook Designs!


Happy Tuesday everyone... I'm up on the Newton's Nook Design Blog today with this cute Bunny Butt from the Bunny Hop stamp set!! Ha Ha.... This is my second Favorite stamp set from Newton. 


I started with a piece of watercolor paper and I added some masking tape to create a rectangle area. Then I added some Cracked Pistachio and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Inks with a piece of Plastic. Once it was dry I removed the tape and added some Black lines along the edge. I stamped the eggs images where I knew they would be as a guide. Then I stamped the eggs and the Bunny image onto some X-Press It blending cardstock and colored it in with Copics. I used my scissors to fussy cut the images out. 


I added a few highlights with a White gel pen and some Black marker around the edges. Then adhered the eggs and then Bunny image and stamped the sentiment in VersaFine Black ink. I also added some Clear Wink of Stella to parts of the image. 

So cute!!!! 

Head over to the Newton's Nook Design Blog for more great inspiration from the Team!

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.
