I'm here...


Happy Tuesday everyone... I hope you are all having a great week so far!! I'm up on the Newton's Nook blog today with this cute card featuring Newton's Rainy Day from the March Release. There's also I video showing how I created this card. 


I'm using the Land Border Die set to showcase how you can use it in other ways then just creating a scene. I used it here o created a fun wavy border along the edge of my patten papers. I stamped the image onto some White card stock and colored it in with Copic Markers. I paper pieced the umbrella with some of the same patter papers and used the C Copics to add some shadows. 


Head over for a link to the video or you can watch below.

YNS Feature Day!!


Happy Wednesday everyone.. It's time for our Monthly Feature Day at Your Next Stamp and this month the team was challenged to create a card showcasing "Laughter". 


My first stamp set from YNS was the Funny Farm Crew and it's still my absolute Favorite!! So today I'm using the Donkey and a sentiment from the coordinating Funny Farm Sentiments set. I created a background on a piece of watercolor paper using some Distress Oxide Inks and then I trimmed 1/4" off the side. I die cut the scallop edge from the Little Ledges Border die set from some Black card stock and added it along the edge. Then I adhered the panel to a top folding White card base with some Fun Foam. 


I stamped the donkey image onto some X-Press it blending card stock using YNS Black Olive Ink and colored it in with Copics: E70, E71, E74 & E77 with a little R20 for the cheeks and inside the ears. I used the coordinating dies and cut the image out. Then I adhered it to the card front with a mini action wobbler. I stamped the sentiment just above in the same Black Olive Ink. 


A Donkey shaking his Ba- Donkey- Donk was only fitting for the sentiment inside the card!! The Happy Birthday Sentiment is from The Little Darling Mermaid set. 


Head over to the YNS Blog for more fun "Laughter" inspired projects and a chance to WIN a stamp set of your choice!!! 

Have a Great Day!!

NND March Release Day 4!!



It's day 4 of our March release at Newton's Nook and today we have an adorable new Newton Set called Newton's Rainy Day


I created a Bright background on my card base with some patter paper and then I die cut some additional panels of the same pattern paper that coordinated and layered them all together. I used the Land borders die to cut the Grey polka dot piece on the center panel. I stamped the Newton image onto some X-Press it Blending card stock and colored it in with Copics. I paper pieced the Umbrella and used some Grey Copic's to add some shadows. 


I die cut the image using the coordinating die and adhered it over the center panel with some foam adhesive. The sentiment is stamped on a banner and added to the upper corner. I wanted to have something that looked like rain drops so I added a few Clear Droplets from Pretty Pink Posh in 4 and 6mm sizes.  How cute is this image?

NND Release Day 3!



Hello everyone.. I hope you are having a great week so far. It's Day 3 of the Newton's Nook Designs Release peeks and today we are showcasing Cottage Garden. 


I started out by die cutting a panel of White cardstock and then I stamped one of the images in the set onto the center using the Fall Ombre Ink pad from Hero Arts. I used my Misti tool and stamped the image twice. Then I stamped the sentiment just on the lower edge of the image in some VersaFine Black in for a crisp image. 


I created a Top Folding Black card base and adhered the panel to it. For some added sparkle I added some Mixed Gold sequins. I love the look of the Gold with the ink colors. There are a ton of fun images in this set and they work really great with the Ombre inks or you could use these images with the Rock n' Roll techniques for some stunning cards.

Today's peek is the adorable new set Lovable Laundry and it's coordinating die which is also a stand alone die called Stitched Onesie

I started out by created a background on some Watercolor paper with the new Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide Ink. Then I die cut the panel and stamped the sentiment along the edge. I adhered the panel to a Back top folding card base. I stamped all of the Onesies on some Copic friendly paper and colored them in. I used a green similar to the background color. 


This is an adorable set with lots of words to mix your own sentiments and who doesn't need a good set perfect for baby cards right? Each of the onesies were cut out using the coordinating die cut which you can see adds a fun stitched detail around the edge.
