The Rabbit Hole Designs July Release – Day 1 – Doggone

Hello and welcome to the release hop.  We are so excited for you to join us as we present to you our July release. The whole design team will be sharing projects featuring the Doggone stamp set.  We also have a GIVEAWAY so please be sure to scroll at the end of this blog post to find out how you can WIN.  Don’t forget to visit the participating blogs (links are indicated below) and leave us some crafty love.  The new stamp sets are now available for purchase at the shop.  Here’s what the Doggone stamp set looks like:

Here’s my first card:

I started by drawing the background using my Micron 0.5 fine-liner on some Neenah 110 lb. solar white card stock.

I colored this background with my Spectrum Noir TriBlend markers in Citrus Green, Citrus and Jade Green blends.  I made sure to go back and forth until I had the nice blending between the three colors.

I stamped the images from the Doggone stamp set and colored them in with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.  Since this stamp set didn’t come with coordinating dies, I die-cut the images using my Brother Scan N Cut 2 machine.

I used a die from my stash to die-cut the sentiment “hello” from some black card stock and finished my design by stamping the sentiment on the front panel and adding some red enamel hearts.  I also used my white gel pen to add more texture and interest.  Here’s a closer look at the card:

For my second card, I wanted to create a simple card that you can mass-produce.  I stamped the paw prints using versafine sepia ink on some beige card stock.  I also used a large speech bubble die to die-cut the speech bubble.

I used another die from my stash to add the “Woof” sentiment and finished my design by using my white gel pen to add some texture to the paw prints.

You Can Never Have Too Much Happy with Newton’s Nook Designs

Hello Newton’s Nook fans!  Did you manage to check out last week’s May 2019 release?  Which one is your favorite?  Mine is the Walking Woofs stamp set and coordinating dies.   For my project below, I also used the Sunscape Stencil.

NNDMAY19_WalkingWoofs
Walking Woofs stamp set & coordinating dies

I was planning on filming a YouTube video when I made this card but I am a little under while I’m writing this post.

For my card below, I started with an A2 size Bristol smooth white card stock and used the Sunscape Stencil and my distress oxide inks to ink up my background.  I also stamped and colored my image in with alcohol markers.  I die-cut the image using the coordinating die.

I used the Wood Grain Frame die to die-cut the colored background.  and adhered the middle piece first on my card base.  I inked up another piece of scrap card stock with Worn Lipstick distress oxide ink and used the “happy” die from the Walking Woofs die set to die-cut part of the sentiment.

IMG_2248

I assembled the card by adhering the frame, with some foam tape and also adhered the image.  I masked the word “happy” on the sentiment and stamped it onto my foreground.  I adhered the die-cut sentiment on the card.

NNDWalkingWoofs2A

I used my white gel pen to add highlights to the hat and the flowers on her skirt.  To finish the design, I added some sparkling clear jewels.  Here’s a closer look:

I hope you like my card today.  The supplies I used are listed and linked below.  Have a wonderful week and happy crafting!

I am so IN-LOVE with this stamp set.  I am a dog/pet lover and when I saw this set, my heart just melted!   If hubby and I only have about about 5 acres of land, we will definitely own a dozen of dogs, 4 cats, a couple of chickens, a pigmy Llama, some guinea pigs and a Cockatoo.  Haha!   You can never have too much happy, indeed!

NNDWalkingWoofs1A

How I made the card:

  • stamp the images on Neenah solar white card stock and color the images in with alcohol markers.  I used my Spectrum Noir TriBlend markers and Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.
  • use my “handmade stencil” die-cut from the Sky Borders die to add the sky with some make-up brushes and light blue ink.

  • use another stencil from my stash to add the grass with some Mowed Lawn distress oxide ink.
  • stamp the sentiment on the card with some black ink.
  • color some card stock using the Spectrum Noir Orange Blend TriBlend markers and die-cut the word Happy from the die-set.
  • adhere this piece on the card with some liquid glue.
  • finish the design by adding some red hearts.

Here’s a closer look:

PUPPY PALS STAMP SET & DIES

Here’s how I made my first card:

  • stamp and color the images with Copic markers (or any coloring medium of your choice)
  • die-cut the image using the coordinating dies.
  • use inkadinkado masking paper to mask off part of the card stock.
  • use the handmade clouds stencil made from the clouds border die and ink up the background.
  • stamp the sentiment on the colored background and adhere the image on on top.
  • cut the colored card stock and adhere on the card base.  Also adhere a rainbow patterned paper at the bottom of the card base. Finish this piece with some black strip card stock.

NNDSpringPileUp1A

I felt that the left side of the card was missing something so I added the pastel stars from Kat Scrappiness to adorn the card.  I think it turned out great.  Here’s a closer look:

NNDSpringPileUp1B

This card is really clean and simple but I like it a lot.  Here’s another look:

NNDSpringPileUp1C

Here’s how I made my second project:

  • sprinkle white embossing powder and heat-set with the heating tool.
  • ink up this bristol smooth card stock with distress oxide inks.
  • wipe the embossed images with paper towel to make them white again.
  • die-cut the rest of the card stock to assemble the card.

NNDPuppyPals1A

This image is sooooo cute!  I also LOVE that the coordinating die, die-cuts the middle space between the two dogs!  It’s a definite must-have for sure.  You can use this stamp set for any occasion and the possibilities are endless.  Here’s a closer look of the puppies:

Aren’t they adorable?  I also love the rainbow colored background and it really made them stand out.

Small Paws, Big Hearts

Hello everyone.  I am back today for Newton’s Nook Designs and I am sharing a simple dog-themed card, showcasing the Terrific Terriers stamp set and its coordinating dies.  I am currently in Toronto, Canada undergoing physiotherapy so I will keep this blog post short.

 

I started out by stamping my images on Neenah solar white card stock and I colored my images in with my Copic markers.  I die-cut the rest of the pieces that I needed for my card using dies from my stash.  I finished my design by creating my own “patterned paper” using the paw prints and the heart that came with the stamp set.

 

Here is my card today.  As you can see, it is very simple but I really love how it turned out.  This stamp set is now available for purchase at http://www.newtonsnook.com.  Have an amazing day!
