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. Please click on this particular blog post and you will be able to leave a comment below.  Thank you!]  

 

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:

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!

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:

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 ink-blended an A2-size panel of Bristol smooth white card stock with distress oxide inks that matches the colors of the Hummingbird and the flowers.  I used my distress sprayer and sprayed some water on this panel and used some paper towel to pick up the water droplets.  I adhered this colored panel onto an A2 size card base.

I used a border die from my collection to die-cut the two scallop panels and foam mounted them on the card.  I adhered the flowers with some liquid glue and foam-mounted the Hummingbird for added dimension.

 

 

I used my Sakura glitter gel pen to add some flecks of glitter on the Hummingbird’s wings.  To finish my design, I added the sparkling clear sequins to the card.  I also added the sentiment that was stamped on some black card stock and die-cut using one of the dies from the Banner Trio die set.

Newton’s Nook Designs May Release Day 2 – Monarchs Stamp Set with Butterflies Stencil

 

It is the second day of the reveals by Newton’s Nook Designs.  I hope you were able to check out yesterday’s reveal.  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. Please click on this particular blog post and you will be able to leave a comment below.  Thank you!]  

 

For day 2, we are showcasing the Monarchs stamp set and coordinating dies with the [Layering] Butterflies stencil.

 

 

 

As soon as I saw this stamp set, I already envisioned a card design in my head.  I knew a clean and simple look would make these butterflies stand out.

 

I stamped the butterflies on some Bristol smooth white card stock with Versamark ink.  I sprinkled some white embossing powder and used my heating tool to heat set the images.

 

 

I chose different colors of distress oxide inks and my mini-ink blending tools to ink blend the colors on the butterflies.  I used the coordinating dies to die-cut them out.

 

I used my guillotine to cut my patterned paper, measuring about 2 by 5 1/2 inches.  I adhered this piece on some A2 size card base.  I also added the black strip with some liquid glue.

 

 

I foam-mounted the butterflies following the colors on my patterned paper.  To finish my design, I stamped the sentiment with some Versafine onyx black ink and adhered the Sparkling Clear Droplets for added texture and dimension.

 

I really LOVE how simple and pretty this card turned out.  Here’s another look:

 

 

For my second card,  I used stencil no. 1 from the Butterflies stencil and and added some Deco Foil Transfer Gel with the Deco Foil stencil pal.  This makes it easier to spread the gel evenly on the card.  I set this panel aside to dry for about half an hour.

 

Once the gel turns transparent you know that they are ready to be foiled.  I cut some silver foil and placed it on top of the card.  I used the transfer sheet to run this through my laminating machine to foil the card.

 

 

To add the second color to the butterflies, I used stencil no. 2 and applied some Deco Foil Transfer Gel on top of the foiled butterflies.  I waited for another half an hour for this piece to dry and placed a rainbow foil on top of the card.  I used the transfer sheet again to run this through my laminator.  I didn’t realize it is possible to foil the images twice but it worked out just fine and I love the result.

 

 

I used my guillotine to cut the foiled panel diagonally.  I adhered some white die-cut panel on an A2 size white card base, and added the foiled diagonal panel with some liquid glue.  I adhered some silver strip to the card also with liquid glue and added the sentiment die-cut using a die from my collection.

 

Here’s another look:

Newton’s Nook May Release Day 1 – Birthday and Floral Roundabout with Circle Frame and Banner Trio

 

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 Birthday Roundabout and Floral Roundabout stamp sets with the new Circle Frame dies and Banner Trio dies.

 

For my first card, I stamped the image on some Neenah solar white card stock and use the stitched circle frame from the new Circle Frame dies to die cut them out.  I used another circle frame from my collection to die-cut some black card stock.  I also die-cut the scallop circle from the new die set and layered these three pieces together.

 

I wanted to create a super cheerful project so I decided to make a shaker card.  I die-cut a rectangle frame from my die collection and adhered some acetate sheet.  I adhered some foam adhesive to create my well and added the Sweet Shoppe Sprinkles as my shaker element.   I closed the shaker with some yellow patterned paper and adhered this on an A2 size card base.

 

 

I added my focal image in the middle of the card using some strong double-sided tape.

 

I finished my design by stamping the sentiment on the banner using the Trio banner die with some versamark ink.  I sprinkled some white embossing powder and heat-set with my heating tool.  I adhered this in the middle of the card with some liquid glue.

 

 

I’m loving this super fun birthday card.

 

 

For my second card, I stamped the image halfway at the top and bottom on some Neenah solar white card stock.  I wanted to keep the coloring simple and decided to just use two colors of markers.

 

 

 

I used the circle die from the Circle frames die set to mask the colored images.  I pressed the word lipstick and mowed lawn stamp pads on my acrylic block and added a few drops of water to dilute the color.  I then used my watercolor brush to add some speckles on my card for added texture and set it aside to dry.

 

 

I used one of the dies from the Banner Trio die set and die-cut the piece with some black card stock.  I stamped the sentiment with some Versamark ink.   I sprinkled some white embossing powder and heat-set using my heating tool.

 

Lastly, I added some sparkling clear jewels to finish the design.
