Newton’s Nook June Release Day 4 – Porch Swing and Roses Stamp Sets

I always get a bit bummed when it’s the last day of the reveals by Newton’s Nook Designs.  Have you seen the last three days?  The design team totally rocked it!  You also 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 Word Press is being viewed.

For day 4, we are showcasing the Porch Swing stamp set and Roses stamp set with the coordinating dies.

 

To make my first card, I started by stamping my images on some Neenah solar white card stock.  I colored my images in with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.  Since I didn’t have the dies, I used my precision snips to fussy-cut the images.

 

I ink-blended a panel of Bristol smooth white card stock using some dye inks from my collection and the Serene Stripes stencil (this stencil is one of my favorites!).  I adhered this piece on an A2 size card base.

 

 

The floor and the baseboards were die-cut using a die from my collection and adhered to the card with some liquid glue.  I die-cut the white rectangle frame and foam-mounted this onto the card.  I added the focal image for with some foam adhesive for more dimension.

 

 

To finish my card design, I stamped the sentiment on some black card stock and adhered with some foam adhesive.  Lastly, I added the potted cactus from the Cultivated Cacti stamp set.  Here’s another look:

 

 

I made my second card extremely simple so this can easily be mass-produced.  I prepped my Neenah solar white card stock with my powder tool to keep my embossing powder from spreading everywhere.  I stamped the image with some Versamark ink a few times.  I sprinkled some white embossing powder and heat-set with my heating tool.  I used some mini ink daubers and hybrid inks to color my flowers.  Sometimes, keeping the card clean & simple creates a huge impact in the overall design!  

 

 

I die-cut the “thank you” using a die from my collection with some black card stock and vellum, adhering them onto the card with liquid glue.  Here’s a closer look at the beautiful flowers!

 

 

I finished my card design by adding some white enamel dots all over the card panel.

I prepped my A2 size panel of Bristol smooth white card stock with my powder tool.  I placed this panel inside my mini Misti and stamped the horseshoe a couple of times with Versamark ink.  I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and heat-set with my heating tool.  I then ink-blended this panel with some distress oxide inks and used my paper towel to wipe the excess ink.  I love the “emboss-resist” effect using the oxide inks.

 

I cut some Neenah solar white card stock on an angle and foam-mounted this piece on my colored background.

 

 

I adhered the colored image on my card with some liquid glue.

 

 

To finish my card design, I stamped the sentiment with some Versafine Onyx Black ink and used my white gel pen to add more texture to the background.  Here’s another look:

Newton’s Nook June Release Day 1 – Farming Fun Stamp Set with Slimline Dies

It is that time of the month where the entire design team get so excited to show off the new stamps, dies and stencils by Newton’s Nook Designs.  You also 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 Word Press is being viewed.

For the first day of the reveals we are starting with a HUGE bang and showcasing the Farming Fun stamp set with its coordinating dies along with the Slimline Frames & Portholes and Slimline Frames & Windows die set.  I am so bummed as I didn’t receive the dies before this release (it is still stuck in NY as I write this post) so you will not see them on my projects this week.

 

 

To make my card, I started by stamping my images on some Neenah solar white card stock.  I colored my images in with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.  Since I didn’t have the dies, I used my precision snips to fussy-cut the images.

 

I used the Circle Frame dies to die-cut the window in the middle of my A2-size card stock.  I used the Hills & Grass stencil with some dye inks to create my scene.  I also inked-up the circle die-cut using the same Hills & Grass stencil with the Clouds stencil to continue the design for a more cohesive look.

 

 

I adhered the colored images on my card with some liquid glue.

 

 

To finish my card design, I added the sun from the Sky Scene Builder die set and also added the small trees using a die from my collection.  Here’s another look:

Caution: I’m a Little Prickly Before Coffee with Newton’s Nook

Hello Newton’s Nook fans!  I hope you are all doing well.  I’m back today to share some Southwest-themed cards, showcasing the Cuppa Cactus stamp set and coordinating dies along with the new Circle Frame Die Set.  I also made a one-layer card today (for those of you who loves  simple cards), showcasing the Cultivated Cacti stamp set.

 

 

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

 

 

I used the Circle Frame dies to die-cut some white card stock three times, and die-cut three colors of patterned paper.  I adhered the pieces together with some liquid adhesive.

 

 

For my background, I die-cut a neutral patterned paper and adhered this piece on an A2-size, side-fold card base.  I adhered two of the circle frames with some glue and foam-mounted the third piece for added dimension.  I added the colored images on the center of each circle frame.

 

I finished my design by using my white gel pen to add some dots on the cacti and stamped the sentiment with some Versafine ink in Onyx black.

 

 

My next project is very simple and can be easily mass-produced.   I want some cheerful cards to donate at the local nursing homes so I actually made 30 of these cards.

 

I stamped the images using some Quick-dry ink by Spectrum Noir.  I used my mini sponge dauber to add a deeper shade on each image.

 

 

I didn’t do any measurements for this card.  The images are very easy to line up and I love that I didn’t have to color them because of the solid stamping.  You can easily get more depth and dimension by adding a deeper shade of the color that you used.

 

 

 

The sentiment was stamped using a light brown-gray ink.  

 

 

I hope I gave you some inspiration today to create something beautiful.  The supplies I use are listed and linked below.  Thank you for stopping by and have an amazing day!  Happy stamping!

You Are Capable of More Than You Know

How’s everyone doing?  Maria here on the blog with you today and I am back to give you more inspiration using products from the last release.  

Lately, I have been making more clean and simple cards that can be easily mass-produced to send to friends.  For my project today, I am showcasing the Terrific Flowers stamp set, along with the Blossom Bubble stencil.

 

To make the card, I started by using my anti-static powder tool and dabbed this on some Neenah solar white card stock.  I used my Misti stamping tool to stamp the flower images with some versamark ink.  I then sprinkled some white embossing powder and used my heating tool to heat-set the image.

I used pixie spray on the Blossom Bubble stencil and placed it against the stamped image.  The spray will make the stencil a bit tacky so that it doesn’t shift while you’re coloring the image.  This is a must-have tool for anyone who loves to use stencils.

To color the images, I used my mini sponge dauber and some hybrid inks and started pouncing lightly until the colors are well-blended, putting more pressure to the bottom of each flower for added dimension.  Easy peasy!

I stamped the sentiment from one of my favorite stamp sets from Cas-ual Fridays called “Be”, using some light gray dye ink.  To add texture, I used the same gray dye ink and watercolor brush to add some splatters to the card.  I finished my design by adding some iridescent jewels to the card, giving it more dimension.  Here’s another look:

I hope I have given you some inspiration today to create some clean and simple cards, using stamps and stencils from the shop.  The supplies I use are listed and linked below.  Please don’t don’t forget to use my coupon code (below) to get 15% off your order.   Thanks for stopping by and happy stamping!

I Am Never Not Thinking of You with LDRS Creative

Hello again LDRS Creative fans!  I’ve been creating a lot of “just-because” cards for my family and friends lately so I thought I’d share one of the cards with you today.

For my project today, I am showcasing the A View for All Seasons stamp set, along with the A View for Al Seasons DiesAnytime Stack stamp setSentiment Stack coordinating dies, the grass using the In the Grass border die set and the Coffee Bean Hybrid ink.

I started by stamping the images on some Neenah solar white card stock using the Coffee Bean hybrid ink.  I love using the hybrid inks because you can color your images using any coloring medium and it wouldn’t bleed.  I colored my images in with my alcohol markers and used the A View for All Seasons coordinating dies to die-cut the images.

To create my scene, I needed to die-cut some grass hills.  I used the In the Grass border die set to die-cut two of them using the Daisy Delights paper pad.  I also used the Prickly Pear Perfection hybrid ink and some blending brush to add more depth and dimension to the front grass.  I adhered both pieces onto the card with some liquid glue and added the potted plants as well.

To add a little depth to the window, I used the Bali Blue hybrid ink and a blending brush.  I foam-mounted my focal image to the card and added the cat also with foam adhesive.  At this point, I realized I needed more “ivy” to add to my scene so I stamped a few more and colored them in.  I used the die to die-cut them out and adhered to the card with some liquid glue.

The sentiment from the Anytime Stack stamp set was stamped with the Watermark ink.  I sprinkled some white embossing powder and heat-set using my heating tool.  I die-cut the sentiment using the Sentiment Stack die set.  This combo is starting to be my go-to in card-making.  I love the convenience of stamping a bunch of sentiments and die-cutting all of them in one go!  I put the rest of the sentiment strips into the pouch so that I can use them for future projects.

To finish my design, I added the little “brick” image using the small stamp included in the set with some Alloy hybrid ink.  In order to get a subtle gray color, I stamped it onto a piece of scratch paper twice before stamping onto my card.  Here’s another look:

Isn’t this the cutest scene ever?  I love, love, love this stamp set!  I cannot wait to use this stamp set again to create a fall or Halloween card! 

I hope I have given you some inspiration today to create something beautiful.  The supplies I use are listed and linked below.  For a limited time, LDRS will also include the stamp set that you see below until supplies last.  Take advantage and order your favorites now to get this freebie!  Thanks for stopping by and happy stamping!

For day 4, we are showcasing the Newton’s Flower Garden stamp set and coordinating dies.

Super simple card to begin with.  I used the Sunscape stencil with some mini ink-blending tools and Mustard Seed distress oxide ink to create the sun.  I also used the Hills & Grass stencil to create the landscape for Newton.

For added texture and dimension to the landscape, I used the grass border die to die-cut some patterned paper and adhered them on the ink-blended panel with some liquid glue.

 

The images were stamped with some Spectrum Noir Rustic Brown ink and colored with my Copic markers.  I die-cut the images using the coordinating dies and adhered them on the card with some liquid glue.  I also die-cut the clouds using the Sky Scene Builder die set.  This is one of my favorite dies of all time.

I finished my design my stamping the sentiment with some Versafine Onyx black ink and added the sparkling clear sequins.  Here’s another look:
