Holiday Card Featuring Newton’s Stocking by Newton’s Nook Designs

Hello my crafty friends! Thanks for stopping by the blog today and I am also glad to be featured on the Newton’s Nook Blog. Today, I am sharing this simple holiday card, showcasing the Newton’s Stocking stamp set and coordinating dies, along with the Meowy Christmas Paper Pad, Argyle Stencil Set and the Pines and Holly Die Set.

I love the simplicity of this card, especially having this white Argyle pattern image on some kraft card stock. Here’s how I made the card:

  • Remove the Argyle Stencil #1 and use Heating Tool to heat-set the ink so that it doesn’t smear on your kraft card stock.
  • Place Argyle Stencil #2 and secure it with magnets again.
  • Using a palette knife and Ranger White Texture Paste, apply the paste evenly on the kraft panel. Leave this panel to dry for about half an hour.
  • Stamp the images and use coordinating die to cut them out.
  • Stamp the same image on the Meowy Christmas Paper and fussy-cut using precision snips. Adhere the same on the image using liquid glue.
  • Die-cut the white band using a die from my collection. Foam-mount the white band on the kraft panel for added dimension.
  • Adhere the background panel on an A-2 size notecard.
  • Add the focal images using tape runner.
  • Die-cut the holly leaves on some Glittered Card Stock using the Pines & Holly Die Set and adhere with liquid glue.
  • Add some Ruby Red Rhinestone Jewels on the card with liquid glue.
  • Finish the design by adding Stardust Stickles to the image.

The argyle pattern on this kraft card stock really stood out but it didn’t overwhelm the design, don’t you think?! I really LOVE how this turned out and I hope you feel the same! The supplies I used are listed and linked below. Thanks for stopping by and have an amazing day!

Pastry Pal Cuties with LDRS Creative

Hello and welcome back!  I am so excited to also be featured on the LDRS Creative Blog today, sharing TWO adorable cards, showcasing the Pastry Pals Craft Kit along with the Candy Counter 6×6 Double-Side Paper Pack.    I don’t know about you but when I saw this kit, I knew I just had to have it!  The images are too cute and you can use this kit all-year round.  The possibilities are endless! 

I started by stamping the images from the Pastry Pals Stamp Set on some Neenah solar white card stock with Raven Hybrid Ink.  I used my Stampendable Stamping Tool to get a nice impression of the images.  I colored the images in with alcohol markers and die-cut them all out using the coordinating dies. Next, I die-cut the slimline panels a few times using the Offset Slimline Stack-ables Die Set included in the kit with white and dark pink card stock.  I also used my pastel watercolor set to flick some colors on the card panel for added texture and interest. 

I adhered the pink frame on the white card panel and foam-mounted both on a slimline card base for added dimension.  I then lined up the images and evenly spaced them while adhering one-by-one with liquid glue.  I finished my design by stamping the sentiment with Raven Hybrid Ink and coloring the letters using the same color of markers that I used for the cupcakes.  I also used some gold gel pen for the sprinkles! 

 Since I colored a lot of images from the Pastry Pals Craft Kit, I decided to make another card.   

 I used the Offset Slimline Stack-ables Die Set from the kit to die-cut the decorative edges using some Neenah solar white card stock and the Candy Counter 6×6 Paper Pack.  I also used the A2 Stitched Layered Card Toppers Die Set to die-cut the patterned paper and adhered on an A2-size notecard. 

 Next, I foam-mounted the focal panel for added dimension and adhered the images with liquid glue.  I finished the design by stamping the sentiment with some Raven Hybrid Ink and colored the letters with alcohol markers.   

 Aren’t these images adorable?!  I am pretty sure this Pastry Pals Craft Kit will sell out soon just like the rest of the other kits so grab them now before they are gone! I hope you like my cards today and got inspired!  The supplies I used are listed and linked below.  Thanks for stopping by, and happy stamping!

CC Designs NOVEMBER Release – OTTERS

HELLO and welcome to the November Reveal Day by CC Designs. The Design Team is so excited to share with you a few projects that we created showcasing the ADORABLE Otters Stamp Set and coordinating dies.

I started by stamping the images on some Neenah solar white card stock with Memento Tuxedo black ink. I colored the images in with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers and used the coordinating dies to die-cut them all out. I colored a few images and you will see more samples in the next few days.

The background panel was ink blended using two different stencils with some dye inks. I used my black gel pen to trace the outline of the heart stencil to give it more dimension. I adhered this panel to an A-2 size notecard.

Since the background pattern is quite busy, I wanted to diffuse the colors a little bit by adding some vellum that I die-cut using a heart die from my stash. I adhered this onto the background panel using my tape runner. I foam-mounted the focal image for added dimension (just to make it stand out a little!).

I finished my card design by adding the sentiment that I heat-embossed with white embossing powder.

CC Designs NOVEMBER Release – SNOWMAN INCHIES

HELLO and welcome to the November Reveal Day by CC Designs. The Design Team is so excited to share with you a few projects that we created showcasing the ADORABLE Snowman Inchies Stamp Set and Coordinating dies that perfectly coordinates with the Inchies Circle Metal Die and the Snow Metal Die.

I started by stamping the images on some Neenah solar white card stock with Memento Tuxedo black ink. I colored the images in with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers and used the coordinating dies to die-cut them all out.

I also die-cut the word “Snow” with the Snow Metal Die on some red card stock and used my white gel pen to create the “snow”.

Next, I die-cut some pattern paper from Sunny Studios called Very Merry 6×6 Paper Pad that already has a “snowy background scene” so it was easy to just adhere the colored images on this panel. I did die-cut the snowbank using a die from my collection for added interest and texture and foam-mounted it onto the card.

I finished my design by stamping the sentiment. Here’s another look:

Hello Autumn with Miss Ink Stamps

Hello Miss Ink fans!  I am super excited to share my very first blog post as the new DT member for Miss Ink Stamps.  Autumn is my favorite season and when I saw this Pumpkin Spice Latte stamp set, I knew I just had to have it.  I’m also showcasing the Perfectly Plaid 6×6 Stencil.

To make the card, I started by stamping the image on some Neenah solar white card stock and colored the images in with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.  I used my precision snips to fussy-cut the image.

Since the focal image is really colorful, I decided that the neutral background is the way to go.  I created the background panel by using the Perfectly Plaid 6×6 Stencil and some light gray dye ink.  I adhered this panel on some A2-size notecard.

I created my simple autumn scene by adhering some additional die-cuts that I have from my collection with liquid glue, then foam-mounted the focal image for added dimension.  I finished my card design by stamping the sentiment with some quick dry dye inks and added some Jasper Stone Pearl Mix for more texture.

I hope you like my card today and got inspired.  Thanks for stopping by!

Holiday Cheers Wine Tag with Newton’s Nook Designs

Hello and welcome! I am so happy that you stopped by today to see more inspiration using stamps, dies & pattern paper from the Newton’s Nook Designs October Release last week.

With the busy holiday season just around the corner, I wanted to get ahead of schedule creating cards and tags to accompany my holiday gifts. I decided to create a Christmas Wine Tag, showcasing the ADORABLE Newton’s Stocking stamp set and coordinating dies, along with the Meowy Christmas 6×6 Paper Pad and the sentiment from the Christmas Cocktails stamp set.

This is such a simple and cute project and you can easily create this tag for any occasion, just by changing the pattern paper and stamp set.

Do you want to know how I made it? Here’s how:

Cut your card stock measuring 7 3/4 x 2 3/4 inches. Using a scoring tool, score your card stock at 2 3/4 inches and fold.

Cut your pattern paper measuring 4 3/4 x 2 1/2 inches and 2 1/2 x 2 1/2 inches.

Before adhering the pattern paper on the card stock, use a Crop-A-Dile or corner-rounder punch to round out all the corners.

Adhere the pattern paper on the card stock with liquid glue. Use a circle die measuring 1 3/4 inches (or a round punch) to cut the hole on top of your tag.

Next, stamp the images from the Newton’s Stocking stamp set and color it in with alcohol markers (or any coloring medium of your choice). Die-cut the image using the coordinating die. Stamp the same image on pattern paper from Meowy Christmas Paper Pack. Adhere the same to the stocking with liquid glue.

Die-cut the Pine Needles and the Bow from the Pines & Holly die set. Adhere the pine needles first on the tag, then add the focal image with foam adhesive for more dimension. Adhere the red bow with liquid glue.

Add stickles to Newton’s Hat and stockings for texture. Finish the design by adding the sentiment. Stamp using Versamark ink on some black card stock and sprinkle with white embossing powder. Heat-set using heating tool and adhere to the stocking with liquid glue.

I hope I have given you some inspiration today to create a unique Christmas Tag using products you have from your stash. As you can see, this was very easy! If you re-create this tag and share on social media, I’d love for you to tag me so I can see your project.

The supplies I used are listed and linked below. Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!

Cute Penguins Christmas Card with CC Designs

Hello! I am so happy that you stopped by today. I am back with another inspiration today, showcasing the Cute Penguins Stamp Set and coordinating dies with the Joy Noel Metal Die by CC Designs.

I didn’t want to use traditional Christmas colors and decided to do some pinks, blues and mint green.

Here’s how I made the card:

  • Stamp the images on some alcohol-friendly card stock and die-cut the images with the coordinating dies.
  • Color the images in with alcohol markers (or any medium of your choice).
  • Die-cut the word “Joy” using the Joy Noel Metal Die on some dark pink card stock that matches the color of the images.
  • Adhere the patterned paper on some A2-size notecard.
  • Die-cut the snow banks and little trees with some white and patterned paper.
  • Assemble the card by adhering the snowbank with the trees first, and layer the other panel using tape runner.
  • Adhere the focal images and the word “Joy” on the card with liquid glue.
  • Stamp the sentiment using some Dark Red dye ink.

I LOVE these cute little penguins so much! Aren’t they so adorable? Who wouldn’t like to receive a cute Christmas card like this?! This stamp set is a must-have for any stamper.

I hope you like the card and got inspired today. The supplies I used are listed and linked below. Thank you for stopping by today, and happy stamping!

NND OCTOBER Release Day 4 – PREHISTORIC CHRISTMAS, ChRISTMAS PHEASANT & HEARTFELT HOLIDAYS

It’s the last day of the reveals by Newton’s Nook Designs and we are featuring three products today. If you haven’t hopped along with us yet, now is a great time to catch up. You have a chance to win the stamp set being revealed each day so please read through ’til the end of the blog post to find out more info.  [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 WordPress is being viewed. Please click on this particular blog post and you will be able to leave a comment below.  Thank you!]  

For Day 4, we are showcasing the Prehistoric Christmas Stamp & Dies, Christmas Pheasant Stamp & Dies with the Heartfelt Holidays that coordinates with the previously released Heart Frames & Banner Trio Dies.

The first card is clean and simple. I die-cut the scallop frame from the Frames & Flags Die Set and used masking tape to mask off the card stock. I ink-blended this panel with some Seedless Preserves, Picked Raspberry, Carved Pumpkin and Mustard Seed distress oxide inks.

I sprayed the panel with water and picked up the excess with some paper towel, and adhered this on an A2-size white notecard.

Next, I stamped the images on some Neenah solar white card stock and colored the images in with alcohol markers. I used the coordinating die to cut them out. I added the images on the card using liquid glue. I finished the design by adding the sentiment, and glittery stars to give it a whimsical touch.

I am starting to really LOVE creating clean and simple card so the next project is another easy one. A one-layer card is a the way to go!

I basically repeated the steps that I did above with the ink-blending and coloring the images. I also stamped the trees from the Festive Forest Stamp Set and used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

I popped-up the first tree with foam adhesive and added the other two with liquid glue. I also foam-mounted the focal image to make it stand out, finishing the design by stamping the sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black Ink.

And last but not the least is the Heartfelt Holidays project. For all you coloring people out there, this is another must-have!

For a cohesive look, I only used some variations of green and red! Nothing too busy here! I just LOVE the simplicity of this stamp set and I am so happy that Newton’s Nook is adding more stamp set to match the Heart Frames Die Set.

I finished my card design by stamping the sentiment on some red card stock and used the Banner Trio Die Set to cut it out. I foam-mounted this onto the card for added dimension.

So there you have it folks! If you hopped along with us throughout this week, I’d LOVE to hear what your favorites are! I hope you have been inspired by the design team all week long! The products will be available tomorrow so grab your favorites first thing before they sell out!
