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!

Isn’t this stamp set sooo adorable?! The sentiments are so much fun and you can use this stamp set all-year round!

My card is pretty simple but I love how it turned out. I started by stamping the images on some X-Press It Blending Card and colored the images in with alcohol markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them all out.

Next, I die-cut the window using a die from my collection and ink-blended this panel with some dye ink. I foam-mounted the negative to a yellow notecard for added dimension and adhered the ink-blended panel with liquid glue. I also adhered the images with foam-adhesive then stamped the sentiment with some Versafine Claire Nocturne ink.

For today’s sneak peek, we are showcasing the Dad’s BBQ Stamp Set + coordinating dies.

I have to admit that I struggle when it comes to creating masculine cards so I hope you like my card below.

I started by masking off a panel of Bristol Smooth White Card Stock and inking up the background with some Distress Oxide Inks and the Cascading Stars stencil.

Next, I stamped the images on some Neenah Solar White Card Stock and colored the images in with alcohol markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them all out. I also cut a few strips of black card stock and some pattern paper and adhered on the panel with liquid glue.

I foam-mounted the images on the focal panel for added dimension. I also die-cut the word “DAD” using the Essential Alphabet Die Set and ink-blended the letters to match the background. I adhered the letters on the card with liquid glue.

I finished the design by adding the sentiment that I heat-embossed and using some white gel pen to add some dots and stars for added interest. Here’s another look:

NND APRIL Release Day 2 – Destination Love + Lilac Stamp Sets

It’s Day 2 of the April reveals by Newton’s Nook Designs! I hope you were able to check out yesterday’s reveal as well. 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 Word Press is being viewed.

For today’s sneak peek, we are showcasing the Destination Love + coordinating dies with the Lilac Stamp Set + coordinating dies.

As soon as I saw the Destination Love stamp set, I immediately thought of this card design. I just didn’t know what colors would work well together so I tested a few markers and colored a few images. The one I picked stood out the most and I used the coordinating dies to die-cut the images.

Next, I used the Oval Frame Die set to die-cut the oval frame on some white card stock. The oval die-cut was ink-blended with distress oxide inks and the Sunscape stencil. The negative die-cut was dry-embossed with an embossing folder for added interest.

I foam-mounted the images on the focal panel and finished the card design by adding the sentiment that I heat-embossed on some black card stock.

The next card is really simple. I stamped the images a few times on some A2-size panel and colored the images in with alcohol markers.

For added interest and texture, I stamped the dots a few times from the Tranquil Tides stamp set. I thought this added a whimsical touch to the overall card design.

I finished the design by stamping the sentiment from the Birthday Essentials stamp set. Here’s another look at the card:

For Day 1 of the reveals, we are showcasing the Cycling Friends Stamp Set + Coordinating Dies along with the Tree Line Stencil. I also used the A7 Frames & Banner Die Set with the Clouds Stencil and the Hills & Grass Stencil.

Next, I die-cut the card background using the new A7 Frames & Banner Die Set on some Strathmore Bristol smooth white card stock. I used some masking tape to cover the scallop and used the Tree Line Stencil to create the “rainbow” trees first with different dye inks. I used the other stencils to ink-blend the panel.

You Are a Shining Star with LDRS Creative’s January 2022 Release

Hello everyone!  I’m sharing this cute and simple card today showcasing the ADORABLE Never Stop Dreaming Stamp Set and Never Stop Dreaming Dies, with the A2 Stitched Layered Card Toppers Die Set and In the Grass Border Dies

To make the card, I placed the stamps from the Never Stop Dreaming Stamp Set inside my stamping tool and stamped the images on some Neenah Solar White Card stock using Raven Hybrid Ink.   I stamped the images with the help of the Stampendable Stamping Tool  to get some really good impression.  I colored the images in with alcohol markers and used the Never Stop Dreaming Dies to cut them all out. 

The background is a pattern paper from a previously released Exclusive Craft Kit  that I die-cut using the  A2 Stitched Layered Card Toppers Die Set.  [Side note: y’all need to check the Exclusive Craft Kit  as they are packed-full of crafting goodies that you can use over and over again]. I used my white gel pen to draw dots and starbursts to the background for added texture and interest. I adhered this panel on some A2-size notecard.  Since the paper is 6×6, I cut the extra using the In the Grass Border Dies.  I adhered the grass panel to the background panel with some 1/8 inch double-sided tape.  Other than that, I didn’t really need to do anything else since the background already has everything to create my scene.

Next, I adhered all of the images on the card with glue.  Since I needed the sentiment to stand out on the card, I stamped it on some black card stock using Watermark Ink.  I sprinkled some White Embossing Powder and heat-set with my heating tool.  I cut the sentiment using the Fiskars Paper Trimmer and adhered on the card with double-sided adhesive.  I finished my design by using some white gel pen to draw dots and stars on the background for added texture and interest.  I also used some Stickles to add some shine to the moon.  Here’s another look at the finished card: 

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