Farm-themed Cards with Newton’s Nook

Hello Newton’s Nook fans!  Have you seen last week’s April release?  What was your favorite?  I am back today to share with you two farm-themed cards, showcasing the Oink stamp set and coordinating dies with the Moo stamp set and coordinating dies.

 

Here’s my first card:

NNDOink1A

 

I started out by stamping my images on Neenah solar white card stock and colored them in with Copic markers.  I used the coordinating dies to die-cut the images.  I inked up a Bristol smooth white card stock with some Broken China distress oxide inks to create the sky.  I die-cut the rest of the images that I needed and assembled the card.  Here’s a closer look:

 

NNDOink1B

 

I absolutely ADORE these little piggies.  I don’t know about you but I think pigs are extremely cute.  A crafty friend of mine has a pet pig and that pig is so smart it makes me want to have one as a pet.

 

NNDOink1C

 

For my second project, I did all those steps that I mentioned above.  However for my grass hill and trees, I inked up my Neenah solar white card stock with some freshly cut grass ink using some make-up brushes.  I really love how it turned out.

 

NNDMoo2A

 

For my background, I inked up the background with Tumbled Glass and Spun Sugar distress oxide inks.  I also used the aged mahogany distress oxide inks to add the colorful speckles.  To create my clouds, I used the Cloudy Sky stencil by Newton’s Nook with some Peacock Feathers distress oxide ink.  Here’s a closer look:

 

NNDMoo2B

The sentiment was stamped using Aged Mahogany distress oxide ink and “note to self”, next time wait for it to dry before adhering it to the card base.   I smudged the sentiment a little.  I didn’t want all of my efforts to be wasted so I am keeping the card as it is.  To finish the design, I used my Sakura white gel pen to add some dots and lines to the trees to give it a little dimension.  I do LOVE how both cards turned out (with the exception of my little boo-boo!).

 

NNDMoo2C

 

I hope you like my cards.  The supplies I used are listed and linked below in case you are interested.  Thank you for stopping by my blog today and happy crafting!

NNDMoo1A

Here’s how I made my card:

  • use some small dies to die-cut the trees with some patterned papers.

Love You to the Moon & Back – Welcome Baby Card with Cas-ual Fridays

Hello CAS-ual Fridays fans!  I was recently asked by a neighbor (she just became a grandma) to create a Welcome Baby Boy card and of course,  I immediately thought of the Some Bunny stamp set.  Here’s what it looks like:

CARD RECIPE:

  • Stamp the images on smooth white card stock and color them in with Copic markers or any coloring medium of your choice.
  • I fussy-cut the image using my precision cut scissors.
  • On a piece of Bristol smooth white card stock, I inked up my background using some clouds stencil die with some dye inks, using the life-changing brushes.
  • I used a clouds border die with my embossing mat to create the clouds impression on my background.
  • I die-cut another piece of white card stock and adhered this piece on my colored background with some foam adhesive.
  • I inked up some white card stock and die-cut the words “Love you to the moon and back” using a die from my stash.
  • I used fun foam and liquid glue to adhere the sentiment strip on my card.
  • I adhered the stamped images onto my card.

To finish my design, I added some stardust stickles to the moon and stars.  Here’s a closer look:

I thinks this stamp set is a must-have for any stampers.  You can use this set to create so many cards for any occasion.

I hope you like my card and got inspired to create something beautiful today!  Please don’t forget to use my coupon code “MARIASENTME” for 15% off your order.  I hope you have an amazing weekend, and happy crafting!
