For the first day of the reveals, we are showcasing the Hop Into Spring stamp set and coordinating dies, with the Raindrops and Petite Flowers Stencil.

 

 

I started by die-cutting the scallop card stock using the scallop die from the Frames and Flags die set.  I created the sky background and the hills using the Clouds stencil, the hills from the Hills & grass stencil with some distress oxide inks.

 

The grass was die-cut using the Land Borders die set and inked up with Mowed Lawn distress oxide ink, and adhered on the background with foam adhesive.

 

I stamped my image using Memento Tuxedo black ink and colored them in with Spectrum Noir TriBlend markers.  I adhered this piece with some liquid glue.

 

The word “Happy” was die-cut using the Holiday Greetings die set, while the word “EASTER” was die cut using the Essential Alphabet die set.  I wanted the words to have different pastel colors so I used my TriBlend markers again to color them in.  I adhered the letters using some liquid glue.  Here’s that it looks like:

 

 

To finish my design, I added the butterfly from the Newton’s Birdbath stamp set.  Here’s a closer look:

 

 

To finish my design, I stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink and sprinkled some embossing powder, then heat-set using my heating tool.  I added some white heart sprinkles to adorn the card and glossy accents to the heart for more texture and dimension.  Here’s a closer look:

You’ve Got Me Floating On Air with Cas-ual Fridays Stamps

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!!    I’m back today sharing this cute Valentine’s Day card showcasing the Some-bunny and Floating stamp sets by Cas-ual Fridays Stamps.

 

Before I proceed with my project, I’m just curious.  Who’s going out to dinner tonight to celebrate this occasion?  My hubby and I don’t normally go out on Valentine’s day.  He makes me a special dinner instead and it is sooooo much better than being in a restaurant because he is such a great cook!   For dinner tonight, hubby is making me Roast Duck with Black Cherry sauce.  Yum!
Okay, before I get hungry and start looking for an unhealthy snack, I might as well explain how I made my card.
to begin, I cut a 5 x 7 Bristol smooth white card stock and inked up the panel with my clouds and grass stencils, and distress oxide inks.  I set this panel aside to dry.
I stamped the images on some Neenah solar white card stock and used my TriBlend alcohol markers to color them in.  I fussy-cut the images with my Honey Bee scissors and adhered them together with liquid glue.
I adhered the images on the colored panel and added this to a 5×7 card base.
The sentiment was stamped with Versamark ink.  I sprinkled some white embossing powder and heat-set with my heating tool.  I foam-mounted this piece on my card to give it more depth & dimension.  Here’s my card:

To finish my design, I adhered the yellow stars and added a red heart on the bunny’s chest.   Here’s a closer look:

I hope you like my Valentine’s card today.  The supplies I used are listed and linked below.  Please don’t forget to use my coupon code below for 15% off your order.
Thanks for stopping by and have an amazing day!

The Newton’s Nook Designs Team is hopping along today to share some great Sweet Treats – just in time for Valentines day!  Make sure you scroll down to the bottom of this post to see the whole list and hop along and comment for a chance to win!

For my project today, I am showcasing the What A Hoot stamp set, and coordinating die set.  The sentiment is from the  Love Owl-ways stamp set.  I also used the Clouds stencil.

To begin, I stamped my images on some Neenah solar white card stock and colored the images in with my Spectrum Noir TriBlend markers.  I die-cut the images using the coordinating die.

 

I used a die from my stash to die-cut the treat topper with some Valentine’s-themed patterned paper.  I cut the same using some white card stock.  I then used my NND Clouds stencil and some Tumbled glass distress oxide ink to create the sky.  I adhered this piece on the treat topper with some liquid glue and started adhering the images that I colored to decorate the treat topper.  I attached the treat topper to a cellophane bag that is filled with Maltesers chocolate.   Here’s what it looks like:

 

 

This project is so easy to make but it turned out so cute!  Here’s a closer look:

Hope Is Stronger Than Fear with Cas-ual Fridays

Hello and happy Sunday! I am back with another CAS card, showcasing the Hope Ribbon stamp set, the Big Hope Fri-Die and the Ruffled Ribbon Fri-Die.

 

To make the card, I stamped the image on some Bristol smooth white card stock with Versamark ink and sprinkled some white embossing powder on top.  I heat-set this image using my heating tool.  I ink-blended this piece with some Worn Lipstick distress oxide ink and use the Ruffled Ribbon Fri-Die to die-cut the piece.

I cut a rainbow patterned paper and adhered this piece on some A2 size card base.  I foam-mounted the focal image in the middle of the card.

I die-cut the word “hope” on some white and black card stock.  I slightly offset the white die-cut on the black to create some dimension.  I adhered this piece on top of the focal image.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment using Versamark ink and heat-embossed this again with my heating tool.  I added some sparkling clear jewels to finish my design.  Here’s my card:

I don’t know what it is but I have been into some rainbow-backgrounds lately.  It honestly makes me happy to see the rainbow colors.  Here’s a closer look:

I hope you like my card today.  The supplies I used are listed and linked below.  Please don’t forget to use my coupon code below for 15% off your order.

Valentine’s Day Card with Puppy Playtime by Newton’s Nook

Aaah! L’amore!  I love crafting this time of the month.  My craft desk  is full of my favorite things like hearts and sprinkles and love-themed stamps!  I just LOVE creating Valentine-themed cards and my project today showcases the Puppy Playtime stamp set and coordinating dies.

To begin, I stamped the puppy images on some Neenah solar white card stock and colored them in using my Spectrum Noir Classique and TriBlend markers.  I used the coordinating dies to die-cut the images.

At first, I wanted to ground my puppies by creating a landscape background using some stencils and dies.  However, I wanted to use some amazing patterned papers that I recently purchased when I was back home.  If you have been following me for while, you know that I don’t use a lot of patterned papers on my projects; it’s just not my style!  However, I wanted to get out of my comfort zone and try something new.   I chose some cute designs and cut them into strips and layered them onto my card base.  I also die-cut a nice scallop trim to adhere at the bottom of the card.

I adhered the puppy images on the card with some liquid adhesive.  The XOXO letters were die-cut using the Essential Alphabet die set and also adhered using liquid glue.  I stamped the sentiment with some Versafine Onyx black ink.

To finish my design, I use some Nuvo crystal drops in Bubblegum Pink.   Here’s a closer look:

I hope you like my Valentine’s card today.  The supplies I used are listed and linked below.  Thank you for stopping by and happy stamping!

For the last day of the reveals, we are showcasing the Newton’s Valentine stamp set + coordinating dies with Newton’s Crafty Cardio stamp set + coordinating dies.

 

 

 

For my first card, I inked up some Bristol smooth white card stock with some Peacock Feathers distress oxide ink with my mini ink-blending tools.  I used the Cloudy Sky stencil to add more depth and dimension to my scene.  I die-cut my grass panels using the Land Borders die set.  I also die-cut the rest of the elements that I needed to create my scene with some dies from my stash.

 

I stamped and colored the images in with my alcohol markers and die-cut using the coordinating dies.  I assembled the card adhering and layering the pieces with some foam and liquid adhesive.

 

I stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink and sprinkled some embossing powder and heat-set using my heating tool.  Lastly, I stamped the hearts on the clouds with some lobster ink.  Here’s what it looks like:

 

 

I did add some glossy accents to the big heart but you can barely see them on the photos.  It is really petty in real life though.

 

 

 

My second card is pretty simple.  I also ink-blended my background with Aged Mahogany distress oxide ink and added the white images by stamping them using Versamark, sprinkling some white embossing powder and heat setting them with my heating tool.  Here’s the second card:

 

 

To adorn this card, I added some Pastel Scissors Sequins by Kat Scrappiness.

Newton’s Nook Designs January Release Day 2 – Love Quarry

It is the second day of the January reveals by Newton’s Nook Designs.   I hope you were able to check out yesterday’s reveal.  You also have a chance to win each stamp set during release week so check out the details I have indicated at the end of this blog post.  [Just a little important note:  I know some of you had difficulties finding the comments section.  If you would like to leave a comment to participate in the giveaway, the “comments section” will only be ever visible when a single post on Word Press is being viewed.

For the second day of the reveals, we are showcasing the Love Quarry stamp set + coordinating dies.

 

 

To create this card, I started by stamping my images on some Neenah solar white card stock and used my alcohol markers to color the images. I die-cut the images using the coordinating dies.

 

I want my scene to look like these tractors are moving those hearts back and forth so I decided to cut my card stock four times using the land border die.   I ink-blended some of the die-cuts with Tumbled Glass distress oxide inks with my mini ink blending tools.

 

I adhered the die-cut pieces on an A2-size sidefold card base using either foam or liquid adhesives.  After adhering my images on the card, I realized I was still missing something so I decided to add the clouds using a die from my stash.   Lastly, I stamped the sentiment using some lobster ink.  Here’s the card:

 

 

I finished my design by adding glossy accents to the tractors.  I know you can’t see it on the photo but they look like glass.  Here’s a closer look:
