Retiring Sets with Newton’s Nook Designs

 

Did you see that Newton’s Nook Designs is having a retiring sale on their website?  It’s time to make room for new products so they are retiring select designs!  These designs are available at up to 40% off while supplies last so hurry to get your favorites before they’re gone for good!

 

All throughout this week, the NND Design Team will be sharing inspiration using some of our favorite products from the retiring list!  Check out what I created today and don’t forget to check the NND Blog each day this week for more fun inspiration!

 

 

For my projects today, I am showcasing the Winston’s BBQ and Chicken Scratches stamp sets.

 

I started by stamping my images from both retiring sets on Neenah solar white card stock.  I colored the images in with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.  I fussy-cut the images using precision snips.

 

I ink-blended an A2 size panel with some Tumbled Glass and SpuN Sugar distress oxide inks.  I smooshed some Aged Mahogany on an acrylic block and added some water then used my watercolor brush to splatter some speckles on ink-blended background.  I used the Hills & Grass stencil to add more depth and dimension to this piece.

 

To create my scene, I die-cut some colored and white card stock using the Sky Scene Builder die set, the Fence die set and the Land Borders die set.  Once I had all of the elements that I needed, I assembled the card.  Here’s what it looks like:

 

 

I finished my design by stamping the “smoke” using Desert Sand Memento ink and the #1 Grill Master sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black ink.  I also added some glossy accents to the beer bottle for added texture and dimension.  Here’s a closer look:

 

 

My second card is really simple.  I created a D.I.Y stencil using a circle die from my stash.  I temporarily taped this piece with some purple tape on some Bristol smooth white card stock, then used the Clouds Stencil and Hills & Grass stencil to add the clouds and grass.

 

I used a die from my stash to die-cut the chicken wire, then used the same circle die to match the background.  I adhered this onto the ink-blended panel with some liquid glue, and also adhered the colored images on the card.  I cut this panel and adhered on an A2 size card base.

 

To finish my design, I added some black & white stripes patterned paper as well as a strip of black card stock.  Here’s what it looks like:

 

 

I forgot to mention that the rainbow and clouds image is from the Believe in Unicorns stamp set (don’t worry, this set IS NOT retiring, haha!).  Here’s a closer look:

XOXO You Arf The Best with Newton’s Nook Designs

Hello Newton’s Nook fans!  I hope you are having a great week!  Have you checked out the February release last week by NND?  I am back today for more design team inspiration featuring the new Sky Scene Builder die set and Petite Flowers stencil along with the Puppy Playtime stamp set and land borders die set.

To begin, I stamped my dog images from the Puppy Playtime stamp set and I colored the images in with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.  I die-cut the images using the coordinating dies.

My colored background panel was ink-blended using Worn Lipstick and mustard Seed distress oxide inks.  I used the Petite Flowers stencil to add more texture to the background.  I adhered this panel to an A2 size card base.

To create my scene, I die-cut the hill and grass pieces with some Bristol smooth white card stock and inked up the pieces with Mowed Lawn distress oxide ink.  The clouds and sun were die-cut using the new Sky Scene Builder die set.  I also die-cut the frame with some pink card stock using a die from my stash.  Now that I have all of the pieces that I needed, I started to assemble the card.

 

To finish my design, I stamped the sentiment on the clouds with Lobster Ink and Peacock Feathers distress oxide ink.  I also used my black glazed pen to add more depth and dimension to the dogs’ eyes.  Here’s a closer look:

 

 

I hope you like my card today.  The supplies I used are listed and linked below.  Check out Newton’s Nook Designs Blog, Instagram and Facebook fan group for more design team inspiration.  Thanks for stopping by today and happy stamping!

Crafting of Hue Sponsorship with Cas-ual Fridays – Celebrate Life

Hello everyone!  I’m super excited to share today’s post!  Cas-ual Fridays Ink Squad is celebrating with  a 20% off the entire collection (using coupon code: HUE20) at the shop and we are this week’s sponsor for Crafting of Hue.

 

 

This weekend’s theme is all about “CELEBRATION” and my project today is about “Celebrating Life“.   I have a friend who is going through so much pain lately and this card is for her.  I want her to know that “life is beautiful” and even though it seems that her world is surrounded by darkness, there’s always light at the end of the tunnel.

 

For my card today, I am showcasing the Tin Roof stencilPretty Posies stamp set, Posies Fri-Dies and the sentiment is from the Flower Angel stamp set.

 

 

To make my card, I started by stamping my images on Neenah solar white card stock and colored the images in with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.  I use the Posies fri-dies to die-cut the images.

 

I cut an A2 size piece of Bristol smooth white card stock and inked up this panel with Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmalade distress oxide ink.  I used the Tin Roof stencil and Spiced Marmalade ink to create more texture for my background.  I smooshed the ink pad onto an acrylic block and added some water, then used my watercolor brush to add droplets to this panel.  I then wiped it with my paper towel and set it aside to dry.

 

I die-cut the white wreath using a die from my stash and adhered this piece on my colored background.  I added the flowers with foam and liquid adhesive and put this piece back on to my paper trimmer and trimmed about an eighth of an inch.   I added this panel to an A2 size card base.

 

To ground the bold images and balance it out, I added a strip of black and white patterned paper.

 

I stamped the sentiment on a strip of black card stock and sprinkled some white embossing powder then heat-set with my heating tool.  I adhered this piece in the middle using my tape runner.  Here’s my card:

 

 

 

To finish my design, I used my white gel pen and drew some white dots on the images for added texture and dimension.  Here’s a closer look:

 

 

I hope you like my card today.  The supplies I used are listed and linked below.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

I used the Picket Fence die for the picket fence and the Land Border die set for the grass with some black card stock.  I assembled the card by adhering all of the pieces that I needed for my Halloween scene.

 

 

I added the ghosts using the Ghosts stencil on my card by slightly tracing the images with my Versamark pen.  I sprinkled some white embossing powder and heat-set this with my heating tool.  I did the same thing for my sentiment.  I finished the design by stamping the bats.  Here’s a closer look:

For today’s release, the design team is showcasing the Autumn Mice stamp set and Autumn Mice coordinating dies:

 

 

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

 

I couldn’t pick a favorite image because they’re all so cute and AMAZING!  I decided to feature all of them in one card.  I used a storybook die from my stash to die-cut the white frame.   I adhered a gingham patterned paper onto an A2-size card base.  I foam-mounted the frame on my card and also adhered the mice with foam adhesives.

 

To give the card more texture but not overwhelm the whole design, I die-cut the same gingham patterned paper using the circle from the Frames squared stamp set and banner dies from my stamp.  I adhered these pieces on my card with liquid adhesive.

 

 

To finish the design, I stamped my sentiment with Versafine Onyx black ink.  Here’s a closer look:

I created a square card base and adhered the colored image on the card.
