Newton’s Nook – Love Bites – Cards for the Children’s Hospital

I was requested to donate some cards at the local Children’s Hospital where I live.  I was supposed to make it very simple, kid-friendly with no sequins or glitter.  Since Valentine’s Day is fast-approaching, I decided to use the new Love Bites stamp set by Newton’s Nook Designs.

The Love Bites stamp set is so versatile, you can create so many different projects using this set.  It doesn’t have to be Valentine’s-related.  You can also use it to make cute little notes to your kids to add to their lunchboxes, or just leave them notes to brighten their day.

I have a video tutorial for you creating 3 projects so I will keep this blog post short.  Here are my projects:

Lawn Fawn and Xyron – Meow You Doin’

Hello my crafty friends. I am so happy to share this blog post today. Xyron is collaborating with Lawn Fawn and the Xyron design team will be sharing projects showcasing Lawn Fawn products (from March 27 to 31, 2017).  We’re also having a giveaway to celebrate! Just leave a comment on any (or all) of the Lawn Fawn projects we share on our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/xyroninc/) all week long and someone is going to win a $50 prize pack – a $25 LF gift certificate and a Xyron Mega Runner!

If you have been following me for a while, you know I LOVE all things LAWN FAWN. I have been a huge fan for years!  Please check out the new Lawn Fawn products at www.lawnfawn.com or for details about this hop, visit the Lawn Fawn blog at: http://lawnfawn.blogspot.com/.

I have a birthday pop-up box for you today and a process video below for Meow You Doin’  card, showcasing the Meow You Doin’ stamp set and dies, 6×6 Perfectly Plaid Rainbow paper pad, and a lot of other Lawn Fawn products that I have from my stash.

I started out by stamping my images on Neenah solar white card stock and colored them in with my Copic markers. I die-cut the pop-up box using a light blue card stock. I also die-cut the square boxes using the dies with the rainbow paper pad, and used my grassy hills border dies to die-cut the grass for my scene.

Before I assembled the box, I stamped some clouds and the sun on a white square piece of card stock. I assembled the box and started decorating it with the rest of my die-cut pieces.

I stamped the script “happy” and die-cut the piece with its coordinating die. I used my Xyron sticker maker to adhere it to the front flap of my card.   I love using the sticker maker for this type of project because it really makes my life easier and the die-cut piece is perfectly adhered to the card.

Happy Easter Card and Easter Treat Bag

Hello stampers and crafters! It’s Maria Russell here with you today and I am so thrilled to be back as a design team member for Kat Scrappiness.

Today I have created two projects, showcasing the (recently stocked) Stitched Heart Tag Dies, Stitched Rope Nested Rectangle Dies, Gerda Steiner Brush Bunny stamp set and a bunch of other products available at the shop.

If you haven’t watched the YouTube video tutorial on how I made these treat boxes, I have linked the video below. It is very easy and you can create a decent-size treat bag using these tag dies. They are so versatile you can create a ton of projects with these dies, for any occasion.  Here is the video tutorial:

For the treat bag, I started out by die-cutting the tags twice and stamped my images on the tag. I highlighted the rainbow with my white gel pen. Before assembling the treat bag, I die-cut a grass border hills die. It is important to do this step first before assembling the bag.

I stamped my bunny images on Neenah solar white card stock and colored him in with my Copic markers. I adhered my bunny to the treat bag.

Using my favorite Lawn Fawn Tiny Tag Saying stamp set and Tiny Tag Dies, I stamped the sentiment on the tag, and attached it on the treat bag with my pink and white twine. Hear is the treat bag:

For the card, I started out by die-cutting my front panel using the largest of the stitched rope nested rectangle dies. I sponged the “clouds” using my lawn Fawn Clouds Border Dies, with Tim Holtz Broken China distress Ink.

I die-cut another grass border die and adhered it on my front panel. I stamped the eggs on Neenah Solar White card stock and colored them in with my Copic markers. I also used my Sakura Gel pens to add some details to the eggs.

To finish off my design, I adhered all of the stamped images and die-cuts on the front panel of my card. Using a blue card base, I adhered the front panel to my card base using my all-time favorite Xyron Mega Tape Runner. Here is the card:
