It is the second day of the November reveals by Newton’s Nook Designs.   I hope you were able to check out yesterday’s reveal.  You also have a chance to win each stamp set during release week so check out the details I have indicated at the end of this blog post.  [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 release, the design team is showcasing the Newton’s Toboggan stamp set and coordinating dies with the Mountains Stencil.

 

 

 

To begin, I stamped my image on some Neenah solar white card stock.   I colored the images in with my Spectrum Noir Alcohol markers and die-cut the image using the coordinating dies.

 

I cut some Bristol smooth white card stock measuring 4 1/4 X 8 1/2.  I ink-blended my background with some distress oxide ink.  I also used the Mountains Stencil to create my snowy-mountains on the background.  I used Gina K Glitz Glitter Gel in White to create the snow and set this piece aside for about half an hour until it dried.  I adhered this piece on a 4 1/4 x 8 1/2 slimline card base.

 

I stamped the trees using the Winter Memories stamp set with some Noble Fir and Celery Stick inks.  I used the Hills and Grass stencil to create my snowbank and adhered my focal image on the foreground.

 

I used some white Copic Opaque paint to splatter it all over my card to create the snowy look for added texture, and stamped the snowflakes using some Mermaid ink.

 

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from the winter Memories stamp set with some Lobster ink.

 

 

I know you can’t really tell on the photo but the Glitz Glitter Gel that I added really made the snow pop!  It’s so pretty in real life.  Here’s a closer look:

Lastly, I stamped my sentiment with versamark ink.  I sprinkled some white embossing powder and heat-set it with my heating tool.

For the first day of the reveals, we are showcasing the Christmas Trimmings and Holiday Lights stamp sets and coordinating dies, with the Ornaments and Light Strings stencils:

 

 

 

I started out with an A2 size panel of Bristol smooth white card stock and ink-blended this piece with some distress oxide inks.  I used the Petite Snow stencil to add more texture and dimension to my scene. I inked up another piece of Bristol smooth white card stock and used the Land Borders die to die-cut the the snowbank and used some tumbled glass distress oxide inks to give it more color.

I stamped the trees on my colored background using the Festive Forest and Winter Memories stamp sets.  I foam-mounted the snowbank, as well as the main image to the foreground.  I also adhered the Christmas ornaments with some liquid adhesive.

 

I stamped my sentiment on the card with some Lobster quick dry ink.  Here’s my card:

I used my Nuvo Crystal Drops in White Blizzard to add more texture and dimension to the Christmas lights.  This really gave it a nice glittery shine.  I set it aside to dry for about 40 minutes.

 

I stamped the sentiment from the Ornamental Wishes stamp set using some Versafine onyx black ink and sprinkled this with some clear embossing powder.  I used my heating tool to heat-set the sentiment.

 

I adhered my foreground on some black card stock and added this piece to a school-house red card base.  Here’s my card:

Newton’s Nook Designs & Therm-O-Web Collaboration Week

 

This week Newton’s Nook Designs and Therm O Web are partnering for fabulous Fall, Halloween and Christmas inspiration! All week long both design teams will be sharing ways to use Therm O Web products with Newton’s Nook Designs stamps!  We also have  GIVEAWAY so please make sure to read at the end of this post to find out how you can WIN.

 

I went NND and TMW crazy and created three projects for you today!  I am showcasing (one of my all-time favorite stamp set from Newton’s Nook)  the Sweater Weather stamp set and its coordinating dies with the Happy Howl-Oween stamp set and coordinating dies.  I am also showcasing a LOT of products provided to us by Therm O Web, which you will be able to see if you watch my YouTube video below.  I also would like to take this opportunity to thank Therm O Web for spoiling the NND Design Team with your amazing products.

 

For my first project, I die-cut a masking paper with a circle die and masked my Bristol smooth white card stock.  I inked up my background with some distress oxide inks.  I sprayed my inked background with some water to get the oxidize effect and dabbed it with paper towel to dry.  I used the Deco Foil Transfer Gel and Newton’s Nook Cascading Stars Stencil to create the stars on my background.  I set this piece aside to dry for about 40 minutes and ran it through my laminator with some Deco Foil Ocean Blue Transfer Sheets.  I removed my mask and colored the moon a little bit with my B000 copic marker.

 

 

To create my scene for my trick-or-treaters, I used a house die from my stash and TMW Flock transfer sheets in Purple Punch, Sunshine Yellow, Black Velvet and White Latte to create my spooky house.  I also die-cut the grass using the Land Borders die set.

 

I stamped my image using the Happy Howl-Oween stamp set and colored the images in with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.  I die-cut the image using the coordinating die.  Now that I have all of my elements, I started building up my scene.

 

 

I used a white pigment ink and a blending brush to highlight the grass.  By doing so, this gave it a more realistic effect since I have a HUGE moon shining over everything!  I finished my design by stamping the bats.  I also stamped my sentiment in Versamark ink and sprinkled some white embossing powder.  I used my Wagner heating tool to heat set the sentiment.  Here’s a closer look at the card:

 

 

For my second project, I wanted to use the flock transfer sheets and my embossing folder  to create a winter scene for my critters from the Sweater Weather stamp set.  I have a process video for you for the two Christmas cards.  Here’s the first one:

 

 

For the second Christmas card, I used the Oh Christmas Tree Designer Toner Sheets , the White Latte Flock Transfer Sheet and the Gina K Designs for TMW Red Velvet Deco Foil to create a fun shaker card:

 

 

Here’s my YouTube process video:

 

I hope you like my projects today.  I would be so grateful if you could visit my YouTube channel and subscribe if you haven’t already!  The supplies I used are listed and linked below (affiliate links may have been used for some of the items at no additional cost to you).

Only Santa Knows…. (If I’ve been Naughty or Nice)

Hello everyone!  Maria here with you today.  Just a quick heads up, the sale is still going strong so head on over to the shop before everything gets sold out.

I know it’s a little too early to even think about Christmas! I want to send mine early this year so I have started creating them already.  For my project today, I am showcasing the Little Huggables stamp set with the Naughty-isms stamp set.

To begin, I started by using a “make a wreath” stencil from my stash and stamped the little present images on Neenah solar white card stock.  I also stamped the snowflake with some light blue ink, and my bunny from the Little Huggables stamp set.

I colored my images in with my Spectrum Noir TriBlend markers.

I adhered my colored panel to a red patterned paper and glued this piece on to an A2 size card base.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx black ink and stamped the paw print with Lobster red ink.  Here’s my card:

This card is really simple and can be mass-produced.  Here’s a little close-up:

I hope you like my Christmas card today.  Please visit CAS-ual Fridays Stamps  to purchase the stamps that I featured today.  Don’t forget to use my coupon code “MARIASENTME” for 15% off your order.  Happy stamping!

Today, I am sharing a birthday card showcasing the Let’s Party stamp set.  I started by stamping my images on some Neenah solar white 110 lb. card stock and colored my images in using some Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.  I die-cut the images using the coordinating dies.
I inked up an A-2 size piece of Bristol smooth white card stock with Peacock Feathers distress oxide ink.  To add more texture, I added some gold splatters on the colored background using my Sakura watercolor and my watercolor brush.  I waited for about half an hour for this to dry, and adhered this piece on an A2 size card base.
I die-cut the words “Happy Birthday” a few times on white card stock using a die from Mama Elephant.  I inked up the top piece with some Dusty Concord distress oxide ink.
I foam-mounted the die-cut panel on my colored background.  This frame piece was die-cut using the Gift Box cover up die-namics from My Favorite things.  I adhered the Happy Birthday die-cut on the foreground and added my cute critters.  Here’s my card:
To finish my design, I added some glossy accents to the balloon for added texture and dimension and also adhered the little gift boxes between the two dogs.  Here’s a little close-up:
