Newton’s Nook & Therm-O-Web Smiles & Sparkles Collab Week + GIVEAWAY

Welcome to Therm-O-Web and Newton’s Nook Designs collaboration. This week, NND and TOW are partnering for a fabulous inspiration week! All week long, both design teams will be sharing ways to use Therm O Web products with Newton’s Nook Designs stamps! There are prizes too! Read all the way to the end of this post to find out how you can win!

I am super excited to share a few cards with you today! I was able to use all of the products without wasting the negative foil pieces and they are amazing!

For all the cards today, I’m showcasing the Dog Silhouette Die Set, Cat Silhouette Die Set, along with the Furr-Ever Friends Stamp Set, Sky Scene Builder Die Set, Clouds Stencil, Sky Borders Die Set, Frames and Flags Die Set, Pawprints Shaker Die Set with Therm-O-Web’s DecoFoil A2 Toner Card Fronts Rainbows Galore, DecoFoil Transfer Sheets Mystic Rainbow and iCraft Easy-Cut Adhesive Sheets.

NOTE: The Cat Silhouettes and Dog Silhouettes Die Sets are temporarily out of stock but Newton’s Nook Designs will be getting more in very soon! If you’d like to be notified when they are back in stock, just sign up on the product pages to be notified!

The first and second card are pretty much identical in design but I changed the silhouettes and the sentiment. Here’s how I made the card:

  • adhere both white and vellum cloud border die-cuts with liquid glue and foam-mount the die-cuts onto the card for added dimension.
  • adhere the the rest of the die-cuts onto the card with liquid glue.
  • stamp the sentiment using black ink.
  • finish the card design by adhering some red hearts for added interest.

Since I have two negative foil pieces from the cards above, I did not want to waste them so I used the iCraft Easy-Cut Adhesive Sheets and added them to some A2-size Neenah Classic Crest Solar White Card Stock. I die-cut both backgrounds using the scallop die from the Frames and Flags Die Set and adhered the same on some black A2-size notecards.

I die-cut the paw prints using the Pawprints Shaker Die Set with some black and white card stock and foam-mounted these pieces on the card for added dimension. I finished the card design by stamping the sentiment on the card.

I am so happy that I was able to make a few cards without wasting any foil. Have you tried doing the same technique? I hope you like my cards today and got inspired.

Would you like to win a $40 store credit to Therm O Web or to Newton’s Nook Designs? Visit the Newton’s Nook Designs blog and the Therm O Web Blog for a chance to win! Both companies will be giving away a prize this week! Have an amazing day!

Clean and Simple Card with Crafty Meraki

Hello my crafty friends!  I hope everyone’s excited for the weekend!

Sometimes, creating a clean and simple card is just what I needed to relax and get rid of stress.  Coloring is very therapeutic and the perfect stamp set to color today is the Hug in a Mug stamp set that I am pairing with the Dancing Feathers Background A2 Die.

I started by stamping the images on some X-Press It Blending Card and colored the images in with alcohol markers.   I used my precision snips to cut the image out since I didn’t have the coordinating die.

I wanted some texture to the background so I die-cut some Neenah Classic Crest card stock using the Dancing Feathers Background A2 Die.  I adhered this panel on some A2-size notecard and added the focal image with liquid glue.   I finished the design by adding the sentiment that I heat-set with my heating tool.  Here’s another look at the card:

I know this card is really simple, but I love how this turned out.  I hope you like it too.  Below, you will find links to the supplies used to create this project(s).

REVERSE CONFETTI MAY RELEASE BLOG HOP

It’s finally here –> the Reverse Confetti’s May Release Blog Hop and the whole gang is here to show you all the amazing projects we’ve put together to encourage you to shop! Remember, all of the products are available today!

For my projects today, I am showcasing the Big Confetti Tag, Birthday Buddies Stamp Set and Coordinating Dies with the Birthday Banter Stamp Set, along with the Circle Gift Card Holder Confetti Cuts and Layered Friend Confetti Cuts and Large Rainbow Circle Confetti Cuts.

The first project is a gift tag that I made for a friend, showcasing the Big Confetti Tag. I used the Big Confetti Tag to die-cut some cute pattern paper and some 110 lb. Neenah card stock for stability.

I adhered the pattern paper on the card stock and added acetate sheet and foam-adhesive to create my shaker well. I die-cut the layered bits using the same Big Confetti Tag on different colors of card stock with some star confetti as my shaker elements. I adhered them together to close the shaker

I added the sentiment from the Birthday Banter Stamp Set and finished the design by adding the ribbon and baker’s twine.

For my next project, I decided to create and clean and simple card. I wanted to showcase the beautiful Large Rainbow Circle that I adhered on the Circle Gift Card Holder. The Rainbow Die-Cut perfectly covers the middle of the Circle Gift Card Holder that I adhered on a top-folding white card base.

The Large Rainbow Circle was used to die-cut some Neenah solar white card stock, and colored using alcohol markers. I adhered the pieces together using some wide packing tape and adhered on the card front.

Next, I die-cut the word “friend” using the Layered Friend Confetti Cuts and also added the sentiment “you are so loved”. I adhered both pieces with some liquid glue to finish the design. Here’s another look:

I hope you got inspired and like my projects this week! Hop along with us and see all the amazing projects prepared by the entire team with our special guest designers! Thanks for stopping by and have an amazing day!

The images from the Love Wins Stamp Set were stamped on some X-Press It blending card stock and colored with alcohol markers. I die-cut the images using the Love Wins coordinating dies.

Next, I prepared the background panel by using the Head in the Clouds Cover Panel to die-cut some 110 lb. Neenah Solar White Card Stock.

Brace yourselves because we have A LOT to show you! For today’s reveal, we are showcasing the A Beautiful Day Stamp Set, A Beautiful Day Coordinating Confetti Cuts, along with the Roses Stamp Set, Roses Coordinating Confetti Cuts, Wildflowers Stamp Set and Wildflowers Coordinating Confetti Cuts.

For my first project, I also used the beautiful Folklore Cover Panel.

Simplicity is the key component for this first project. The background was die-cut using the Folklore Cover Panel Confetti Cuts and adhered on a top-folding notecard.

The images from the A Beautiful Day Stamp Set were stamped on some Bristol Smooth White card stock with Versamark ink, and heat-set with heating tool. I used some distress oxide inks to blend the colors on each butterfly, then used the A Beautiful Day Coordinating Confetti Cuts to die-cut the images.

I foam-mounted the die-cut images on the card panel for added dimension and finished the design by adhering the sentiment that was heat-embossed on some black card stock.

For my second project, I am showcasing the Roses Stamp Set and Roses Coordinating Confetti Cuts.

I die-cut the background panel using the Roses Confetti Cuts with some pattern paper. I adhered this panel with liquid glue on some top-folding notecard. I watered down some white paint and used the brush to splatter some on the background panel for added interest.

The images from the Roses Stamp Set were stamped on some X-Press It Blending Card and colored with alcohol markers. I used the coordinating die to cut it out and adhered on the card front with foam adhesive for added dimension. I finished the design by adding the sentiment strip. Here’s another look:

For my third and last project for the day, I am showcasing the Wildflowers Stamp Set and Wildflowers Coordinating Confetti Cuts, along with the Outlined Frame Cover Panel.

I die-cut the some Neenah solar white card stock using the Outlined Framed Cover Panel and adhered this on some blue top-folding notecard.

Next, I stamped the images from the Wildflowers Stamp Set on some X-Press it Blending card and colored the images in with alcohol markers. I used the Wildflowers Coordinating Die to die-cut the image and adhered on the card with liquid glue.

I finished the card design by stamping the sentiment and used some white gel pen to draw dots to the images for added texture. Here’s another look:

COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI – DAY 1 – Birthday Buddies & Birthday Buddies Banter

I am pleased to join the Countdown to Confetti Day 1 by Reverse Confetti. We have lots to show you and there is also a GIVEAWAY so please read through the end of this post to find out how you can WIN!

For my first project, I am showcasing the Birthday Buddies Stamp Set and Coordinating Confetti Cuts along with the Circle Gift Card Holder Confetti Cuts (a must-have!) and Birthday Buddies Banter stamp set with the Circle Gift Card Holder Confetti Cuts.

I have also used the All You Need Is Love Stamp Set which is, incidentally, a free with $60 purchase.

I am so excited to share TWO projects today, showcasing the above-mentioned products. First is this gift card holder:

Here’s how I made this project:

  • Stamp the images on some Neenah solar white card stock and color the images in with alcohol markers (or any medium of your choice).
  • Use the coordinating dies to cut them out. Set this aside for now and prepare the background panel.
  • Use the Circle Gift Card Holder Confetti Cuts to die-cut some Strathmore Bristol Smooth White Card Stock.
  • Ink-up this panel using a stencil and some Distress Oxide Inks.
  • Adhere this panel on a top-folding notecard halfway through so that it can be lifted up when opened by the recipient (see photo below)
  • Stamp the sentiment from the Birthday Buddies Banter Stamp Set on some black card stock with VersaMark ink and heat-set with the heating tool. Adhere the sentiment on the card with foam-adhesive so that when the card is opened, the main panel can stand up on its own.
  • finish the design by using some white gel pen to for added interest to the images.

I really LOVE the Circle Gift Card Holder Confetti Cuts and this is a must-have for any card-maker! Also, the Birthday Buddies Stamp set have the cutest images and I love that the Coordinating Confetti Cuts makes it super easy to die-cut the inside portion of the balloon strings!

For my second project, I am showcasing the Free with 60 Stamp Set called All you Need is Love with the Large Rainbow Circle Confetti Cuts.

I decided to create a very colorful card design! I love Rainbows and I think this card is so cheerful, it will make anyone’s day!

  • Prepare the background panel by die-cutting some Neenah Solar White Card stock using some clouds border die from your collection. Foam-mount both die-cuts on some A2-size white notecard.
  • Stamp the sentiment from the “All You Need is Love” Stamp Set with different colors of dye inks.
  • Use the Large Rainbow Circle Confetti Cuts to die-cut some Neenah solar white card stock. Color each die-cut using some alcohol markers and adhere them all together using a wide-packing tape.
  • Foam-mount the Large Rainbow Circle die-cut to the card front and use your paper trimmer to trim off the excess.
  • Finish the card design by adhering the hearts on the Large Rainbow Circle.

I can’t wait to hop around and see what the other team members designed! Leave a comment by noon central on May 7th for a chance to win.

A Few Mother’s Day Cards with Crafty Meraki

Hello Crafty Meraki fans!   I have a few Mother’s Day Cards to share with you today from the latest release.  This first one features the beautiful Always in My Heart Stamp Set with the Craft-A-Round A2 Background Die.

I die-cut a panel of some 110 lb. Neenah Solar White Card Stock using a border die from my collection.  I placed this panel inside my Misti Stamping Tool and stamped the images from the Always in My Heart Stamp Set.  I colored the images in with alcohol markers and foam-mounted this panel on the Craft-A-Round A2 Die-cut that I previously adhered on some A2-size notecard. 

I finished the sentiment in the middle of the card front.  Here’s another look:

For my next two cards, I am showcasing the Craft-A-Round A2 Background Die with the Mama Bear Stamp Set and Mama Bear Coordinating Dies with the Crafty Plaid A2 Background Die.

I stamped the images on some Neenah solar white card stock and used the Mama Bear Coordinating Dies to cut them all out. I prepared the background panel by inking up some Bristol smooth white card stock with oxide inks.  I set this panel aside to let it dry for about half an hour and used my embossing mat to dry-emboss the background.  I adhered this panel on some A2-size notecard.

I die-cut the circle and used the same embossing Mat to dry-emboss this piece and adhered on the card front with liquid glue.  I finished the design by adhering the images on the card.  Here’s a closer look:

The next card, is probably one of my favorite cards of all time.  The simplicity of the background and the sentiment are the perfect combo to cheer up your mom for Mother’s Day.

I inked-up a panel of some Bristol smooth white card stock using distress oxide inks and a heart stencil from my collection.  I used the Crafty Plaid A2 Background Die and my embossing mat to dry-emboss the panel for added interest.  I adhered the card front with liquid glue on some A2-size top-folding notecard.

The images were stamped and colored with alcohol markers.  I die-cut them all out using the Mama Bear Coordinating Dies and adhered on the panel with liquid glue.  I finished the card design by adding the sentiment strip and adhering some Meraki Ivory Opal Gems for added interest.  Here’s a closer look:

I hope you like the cards that I shared today and got inspired. Below, you will find links to the supplies used to create this project(s).
