Newton’s Nook & Xyron Inspiration Week Collaboration

NNDXYRON_2018

This week Newton’s Nook Designs and Xyron are partnering for a very awesome inspiration week!  Each day there is fresh inspiration using Newton’s Nook Designs products with Xyron adhesives on the NND blog and on the Xyron facebook page!

For my project today, I used the new Loveable Llama stamp set by NND, a Sizzix step-up die from my stash and my all-time favorite Xyron Mega Tape Runner.

I started out by die-cutting some white 110 lb. card stock using my Sizzix Basic Step-up dies.

I stamped my Llamas from Loveable Llamas stamp set on some Neenah solar white card stock, using memento tuxedo black ink.  I colored them in with my Copic markers, and used the coordinating dies to die-cut the images.

I used a patterned paper from my stash to die-cut the pieces to decorate my step-up card and adhered them with my Xyron Mega Tape Runner.  This is my favorite adhesive to use on my projects.

I adhered all of the images on the card and finished the design by stamping the sentiment on a banner strip die, and added the yellow bow.  Here’s the card:

I really love how cheerful this card turned out.  The cacti images from the stamp set went perfectly with the theme of this card.

Bitty Bunnies Spring Card

Ahh! Spring is almost here and I am ready for all things “pastel”, haha!  I am back today to share with you a Spring card, showcasing the Bitty Bunnies stamp set and coordinating dies, with some squeezed lemonade, shaded lilac and tattered rose distress oxide inks.

I have a process video for you today so I will keep this blog post short.  I hope you got inspired.  The supplies I used are listed and linked below. Have a wonderful day!

Newton’s Nook and Xyron Inspiration Week Collaboration

Welcome to the Fun Collaboration Blog hop with Newton’s Nook Designs and Xyron! I am extremely excited to share this blog post because I belong to both design teams. There are prizes too!  Newton’s Nook is giving away a $25 gift certificate to the shop and Xyron is giving away a Mega Tape runner.  Please read all the way to the bottom to find out how you can win the prizes!

 

I am sure most of you know that I am still away from home taking care of my very sick father-in-law and I currently have very-limited crafting supplies with me.  This is why my card is going to be very simple.

 

For our collaboration, I am showcasing the Newton’s Perfect Pumpkin stamp set and my Xyron Mega-Tape Runner.  I know it is a little too early for Halloween but I wanted to create something fun for you and give you an idea of what’s to come from NND’s fall stamp release.  Stay tuned for next month’s release because you will absolutely love all of them!

 

I started out by stamping the images on Neenah solar white card stock using my new (favorite) Tim Holtz Stamping platform and color the images in with my alcohol markers.  I purchased these alcohol markers from Amazon and they are comparable to Copic markers (but a lot cheaper).  To be honest though, I still prefer my Copics but these markers are good enough when I am crafting from my home away from home.  I fuzzy-cut the images using my precision scissors.  I also stamped the spider web, bats, spider and sentiment on my card front.

 



 

 

To finish my design, I die-cut the clouds with my clouds border dies on black card stock.  To give the clouds a little dimension, I used my black fun foam and adhered them with my Xyron Mega Tape Runner (also my favorite).

Here’s the final card – simple and fun:
