Hoppy Spring with Newton’s Nook Designs

Hoppy spring!  I know things are so scary for all of us at the moment and creating cards is the one thing that calms my soul.  Without this hobby, I’d probably go nuts!  My husband and I are currently stuck overseas and we are not allowed to go anywhere (or fly home)!  I am sure a lot of you are in the same situation so let us all pray and hope that this pandemic will go away soon!  This is why I decided to share some cheerful shaker card today, showcasing the Hop into Spring stamp set and coordinating dies, with the Framework die set, Woodland Picnic stamp set and coordinating dies, Sky Scene builder dies, Land Border die set and the Essential Alphabet dies.   

 

To make my shaker card, I started by die-cutting some Bristol smooth white card stock using the biggest die from the Framework die set.  I ink-blended this panel with Picked Raspberry, Worn Lipstick and Spun Sugar distress oxide inks.  I used my distress sprayer to spray some water on this panel and dabbed it with my paper towel to dry.  I used a stitched circle die from my stash to die-cut the colored panel to create my window and adhered this piece on an embossed white card stock.  I also used the same circle die to die-cut the grass using the Land Borders die.

 

I stamped the two bunnies from the Hop Into Spring and Woodland Picnic stamp sets on some Neenah solar white card stock and colored them in with my alcohol markers.  I used the coordinating dies to die-cut the images.

 

To create my scene, I used the Sky Builder die set to die cut the sun ad clouds and the word “SPRING” using the Essential Alphabet die set.  Now that I have all of the elements I needed, I started to assemble my card.

 

I added some acetate sheet on my ink-blended panel and foam adhesive to create my well. I adhered the grass and clouds with some liquid adhesive. I added some iridescent hearts as my shaker element.

 

I used “Press N Seal” to line up the letters on my card and adhered them using some liquid glue.

 

 

 

I stamped the word “hoppy”  with Versafine Onyx Black ink and finished my design by adding white dots to the flower using my white gel pen.  Here’s a closer look:

 

 

I hope I have inspired you to create something beautiful today!  The supplies I used are listed and linked below.  thanks for stopping by and happy stamping!

For today’s reveal, we are showcasing the adorable Bitty Bibs stamp set and Baby Bibs coordinating dies with the Sky Scene Builder die set.

 

 

 

 

To create my card, I stamped the images on some Neenah solar white card stock and colored the images in with my Spectrum Noir TriBlend markers.  I fussy-cut the images using my  Honey Bee precision scissors.  I die-cut the scallop bibs using the Bitty Bibs die set and adhered the colored images on top of it with some liquid glue.

 

I die-cut the yellow background with some yellow card stock and used the new Petite Flowers stencil to add more depth and color.   I adhered this piece on an A2 size card base.  The wavy border frame was die-cut using a die from my stash and foam-mounted on the card.  I also foam mounted the colored bibs for stability.

 

The sentiment was stamped on some black card stock with versamark ink and heat-embossed with my heating tool.

 

 

 

To finish my design, I added the hearts that were stamped and colored using the What A Hoot stamp set.  I absolutely LOVE all the colors on this card.  The bright yellow background made the images pop!  Here’s a closer look:

 

 

 

 

To finish my design, I stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink and sprinkled some embossing powder, then heat-set using my heating tool.  I added some white heart sprinkles to adorn the card and glossy accents to the heart for more texture and dimension.  Here’s a closer look:

For the second day of the reveals, we are showcasing the Love Quarry stamp set + coordinating dies.

 

 

To create this card, I started by stamping my images on some Neenah solar white card stock and used my alcohol markers to color the images. I die-cut the images using the coordinating dies.

 

I want my scene to look like these tractors are moving those hearts back and forth so I decided to cut my card stock four times using the land border die.   I ink-blended some of the die-cuts with Tumbled Glass distress oxide inks with my mini ink blending tools.

 

I adhered the die-cut pieces on an A2-size sidefold card base using either foam or liquid adhesives.  After adhering my images on the card, I realized I was still missing something so I decided to add the clouds using a die from my stash.   Lastly, I stamped the sentiment using some lobster ink.  Here’s the card:

 

 

I finished my design by adding glossy accents to the tractors.  I know you can’t see it on the photo but they look like glass.  Here’s a closer look:

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:

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:

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 also used the Sunscape Stencil for my card and a small die from my stash to cut out the piece so I can insert the image.  I love, love, love this cutie!  Here’s a close-up:

 

 

Here’s my Newton’s Melon card.  I used the Speech Bubbles die set and ink-blended the card stock with some distress oxide ink to make it look like watermelon.  Clean and simple but I love how it turned out.

 

 

Here’s a closer look:

 

 

Last but not the least, here’s my Shrimp Cocktails card.  I used the Bubbly Stencil for my background with a some dye inks.  The bow is from the Pines & Holly die set.
