NNDReleaseIcon_NOV17

It is the first day of the November release by Newton’s Nook Designs and we are showcasing a couple of stamps and dies for you.  The Cup of Cocoa stamp set and coordinating dies, with the Frozen Fellowship stamp set, as well as the amazing Fancy Edges tag die and the Frames and Flags Die.  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. Please click on this particular blog post and you will be able to leave a comment below.  Thank you for understanding and I apologize for the confusion.]

For my projects today, I used both stamp sets and also the new stand-alone dies.  I JUST LOVE THEM! They are so versatile!  Here’s what they look like:

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 images with the coordinating dies.  I also die-cut the tags on 110 white card stock, as well as patterned paper.  I wanted to use the edge dies to create some added dimension and details to my tags.  Here are the tags:

For my card, I stamped the image on Neenah solar white and decided to just color one snowman.  I wanted him to stand out from the rest of the image.  I also used the Frames and Flags die to die-cut a Bristol Smooth white card stock measuring 4 1/4 by 5 1/2.  I colored my card front  with my favorite Broken China Distress Oxide Ink using my blending tool.  I spritzed it with water and dabbed it with my paper towel.  I adhered the image to the colored background.  I also heat embossed my sentiment to finish my design.  Here’s what the card looks like:

Seasons Greetings & From Your Sea-cret Santa Cards with Waffle Flower Stamps & Xyron

I am super excited to share with you my cards today!  The Xyron Design Team is teaming up all week long with Waffle Flower Crafts.  I got to play with this very cute stamp called The SEA-son stamp set and amazing adhesives by Xyron, Inc.

IMG_6036

I started out by stamping my images using my stamping platform on neenah solar white card stock with my memento tuxedo black ink.  I colored my images in with my Copic markers.  Since I didn’t have the dies for this set, I fuzzy-cut all of my images with my precision-cut scissors.

I cut a Bristol smooth white card stock measuring 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 and colored my background using my Broken China and Faded Jeans Distress Oxide Inks.  I used my distress sprayer to spray some water to my card panel to get the distress look and dabbed it dry with my paper towel.

I die-cut the rest of the pieces that I needed for my first card.  I finished my design by adding glossy accents to the bubbles, star and the tree ornaments.  Here’s the first card:

Since I colored a lot of images, I decided to make a step-up card.  Here’s the second card:

Doxies Happy Holidays with Newton’s Nook

Hello my crafty peeps!  I hope you are having a great week so far.  I am back today for Newton’s Nook showcasing a cute older stamp set called Holiday Hounds, mixing it up with Snow Globe Scenes stamp set.  I love that you can mix and match these stamp sets to create some cute cards.

I started out by stamping the doxies and the trees with my memento tuxedo black ink on neenah solar white card stock.  I colored my images in with my Copic markers and run it through my die-cutting machine with the coordinating dies.  I die-cut the rest of the elements that I needed to create my scene using different dies from my collection.

I wanted to create a fun card today so I decided to make a shaker card.  I adhered my “sky” background to my card base first, then adhered the acetate sheets to my frame, and added foam adhesives.

I die-cut a circle card stock and colored it with my Copic markers to create some shading for the moon, then stamped the flying Santa and reindeers from the Snow Globe Scenes stamp set.  I adhered the moon to the front panel.

I added my favorite sequin mixes from Kat Scrappiness for my shaker elements, and adhered my frame to the card panel.  I finished my design by adding Nuvo white Crystal drops to the houses and trees, and glossy accents to the lightbulbs.

I hope you got inspired today to create cute holiday shaker cards.  I have listed and linked the supplies I used in case you are interested.  Have an amazing day!

Today I am showcasing a new stamp set by www.jessicalynnoriginal.com called You Are My Happy Ending Pirate Kids 4 x 4 stamp set.  Here’s what the stamp set looks like:

JLOHEnding

Since I didn’t receive the physical stamp set in time for the launch, I had to work on the digital images.  I printed them off on neenah solar white card stock with my laser printer, and colored the images in with my Copic markers.  I fuzzy-cut the images with my precision cut scissors and set them aside. I stamped other images from stamp sets that I had from my collection to decorate my front panel.   Here’s my card today:

Easy Thanksgiving Crafts with Xyron

I hope you are all having a great week so far.  All week long, the Xyron Design Team will be sharing easy Fall/Thanksgiving projects on the Xyron Facebook group.  For my projects today, I am making a bunch of treat bags to give to my guests for Thanksgiving.  I also made some place card holders and decorated a bunch of LED candles to decorate my table.

 

If you don’t have the supplies to create the treat bag, you can definitely buy some bags from the dollar store or craft stores, and decorate them with silk fall leaves or any other fall-themed embellishments, and fill them with surprise treats for your guests.

 

I started out by die-cutting some American Crafts card stock using my Mama Elephant Treat Bag die.  To decorate the bag, I die-cut the pumpkin with the Mama Elephant pumpkin add-on dies.  For my sentiment, I die-cut the “Thank You” script using my Kat Scrappiness Thank you script die.

 

XyronThanksgiving1

 

I assembled the bag using my Xyron Mega Runner.  I also used the mega runner to adhere the pumpkin.  To make things easier, I used my Xyron sticker maker to adhere the tiny pieces that goes with the pumpkin, as well as the Thank You Script sentiment.  I filled my bag with some treats.

Here’s the treat bag:

Since I have some leftover leaves that I die-cut from a previous project, I decided to make some place card holders, that will hold the utensils and a note pad for my guests to write what they are thankful for this year.  Here’s what it looks like:

I also decorated some LED candles to decorate my table, using my Xyron sticker maker and Mega Runner.

25 Days of Christmas Tags with Newton’s Nook

25DaysTagsBadge

Today the Newton’s Nook Design Team is joining www.inmycreativeopinion.blogspot.ca for the 25 Days of Christmas Tags.

For my Christmas tags below, I’m showcasing the Holiday Hounds stamp set and coordinating dies, with the Santa Paws Newton and the Sentiments of the Season stamp set.

I stamped my images on Bristol Smooth card stock using memento tuxedo black ink.  I colored the images in with my Copic markers.  I die-cut them with the coordinating dies.  I also die-cut the tags in white card stock, as well as patterned paper.  For the other two tags, I used my blending tools and broken china distress oxide inks.

To finish the design, I used one of my all-time favorite dies by Newton’s Nook called Pines and Holly Die Set and added the greenery to the tag.  Here’s what they look like:

NNDDachshundTags

Aren’t they cute?  They almost look like Christmas ornaments.

I hope you all got inspired today.  Please visit www.inmycreativeopinion.blogspot.ca for more holiday inspiration and information about the 25 Days of Christmas tags.  Have an amazing day!

So Much to be Thankful For Card with ClearSnap and Xyron

Hello my crafty friends! I hope you are having a great day!  I am super thrilled to share my card today.  The Xyron design team received some amazing products from ClearSnap and the team will be showing you projects this week, showcasing some ink pads by ClearSnap and adhesives by Xyron.

 

I started out by die-cutting some fall leaves using a die set by Lawn Fawn on Neenah solar white 110 lb. card stock and colored them in using the Color Box Cat’s Eye.  The colors I received are perfect for fall.  I dabbed the ink pad onto the card stock directly until I got some nice colors on the leaves.

 

 

I also die-cut an A2 size Neenah solar white card stock, using my Cross Stitched Rectangle Die by Kat Scrappiness.  I also used a die from my collection to die-cut the wreath.  I adhered the wreath onto my card front.

 

Before I adhered the leaves onto the wreath, I decided to stamp my sentiment first using my stamping tool, with the Coal Ink box.  I wanted my sentiment to look crisp and bold against the colorful fall leaves.

 

 

I run the colorful die-cut leaves with my Xyron 1.5 Inch Sticker Maker so that I can have edge-to-edge adhesive on the leaves and it will be easier to adhere them all onto my card.

You can easily mass-produce this card.  I think it turned out so simple yet elegant and is perfect to give to family and friends for the Thanksgiving holiday coming up next month.
