For Day 4, we are showcasing Newton’s Kite Stamp Set + Coordinating Dies that I paired up with the previously-released Circle Frames Die Set along with the Land Borders Die Set, Sky Scene Builder Die Set and Banner Trio Die.

I started with the background panel by ink-blending it with distress oxide ink. I used some white gouache that I diluted with water and used watercolor brush to add some splatters to the background for added texture. I adhered this panel on some A2-size notecard.

Next, I die-cut the window by using one of the dies from the Circle Frames Die Set and foam-mounted this onto the card. I added the grass that I die-cut using the Land Borders Die Set, and the clouds from the Sky Scene Builder Die Set.

The focal image was stamped on some X-Press It Blending Card and colored with alcohol markers. I used the coordinating die to cut the image out and foam-mounted to the focal panel.

I finished the card design by adding the sentiment that I heat-embossed and die-cut using one of the dies from the Banner Trio Die Set. Here’s another peek at the card:

For Day 2 of the reveals, we are showcasing the Flamingo Oval Stamp Set that goes perfectly with the previously released Oval Fames Die Set that I also paired with the Tropical Leaves Stencil.

The background panel was die-cut using scallop die from the Frames & Flags Die Set. I used the Tropical Leaves Stencil and some texture paste for added interest and texture. Once the panel was dry, I adhered it onto some white A2-size notecard.

I stamped the Flamingo Oval image on some X-Press It Blending Card and colored the images in with alcohol markers. I used the Oval Fames Die Set to cut the oval and also used precision snips to cut out the middle of the images. I foam-mounted this onto the card for added dimension.

The sentiment was stamped on white card stock and coloring the word “THANKS” with some yellow markers. I added this onto some black card stock and adhered on the card with foam-adhesive.

Newton’s Nook & Therm-O-Web Smiles & Sparkles Collab Week + GIVEAWAY

Welcome to Therm-O-Web and Newton’s Nook Designs collaboration. This week, NND and TOW are partnering for a fabulous inspiration week! All week long, both design teams will be sharing ways to use Therm O Web products with Newton’s Nook Designs stamps! There are prizes too! Read all the way to the end of this post to find out how you can win!

I am super excited to share a few cards with you today! I was able to use all of the products without wasting the negative foil pieces and they are amazing!

For all the cards today, I’m showcasing the Dog Silhouette Die Set, Cat Silhouette Die Set, along with the Furr-Ever Friends Stamp Set, Sky Scene Builder Die Set, Clouds Stencil, Sky Borders Die Set, Frames and Flags Die Set, Pawprints Shaker Die Set with Therm-O-Web’s DecoFoil A2 Toner Card Fronts Rainbows Galore, DecoFoil Transfer Sheets Mystic Rainbow and iCraft Easy-Cut Adhesive Sheets.

NOTE: The Cat Silhouettes and Dog Silhouettes Die Sets are temporarily out of stock but Newton’s Nook Designs will be getting more in very soon! If you’d like to be notified when they are back in stock, just sign up on the product pages to be notified!

The first and second card are pretty much identical in design but I changed the silhouettes and the sentiment. Here’s how I made the card:

  • adhere both white and vellum cloud border die-cuts with liquid glue and foam-mount the die-cuts onto the card for added dimension.
  • adhere the the rest of the die-cuts onto the card with liquid glue.
  • stamp the sentiment using black ink.
  • finish the card design by adhering some red hearts for added interest.

Since I have two negative foil pieces from the cards above, I did not want to waste them so I used the iCraft Easy-Cut Adhesive Sheets and added them to some A2-size Neenah Classic Crest Solar White Card Stock. I die-cut both backgrounds using the scallop die from the Frames and Flags Die Set and adhered the same on some black A2-size notecards.

I die-cut the paw prints using the Pawprints Shaker Die Set with some black and white card stock and foam-mounted these pieces on the card for added dimension. I finished the card design by stamping the sentiment on the card.

I am so happy that I was able to make a few cards without wasting any foil. Have you tried doing the same technique? I hope you like my cards today and got inspired.

Would you like to win a $40 store credit to Therm O Web or to Newton’s Nook Designs? Visit the Newton’s Nook Designs blog and the Therm O Web Blog for a chance to win! Both companies will be giving away a prize this week! Have an amazing day!

I have been building up my stash of “just-because” cards and today’s project features the Lilac Stamp Set and Coordinating Dies with the A7 Frames and Banners Die Set by Newton’s Nook Designs.

Here’s how I made this card:

  • stamp the images on some Neenah Classic Crest Solar white card stock.
  • color images in with alcohol markers (or any medium of your choice).
  • die-cut the images using the coordinating die.
  • die-cut some pattern paper that compliments the color of the stamp images using the biggest die from the A7 Frames & Banners Die Set.
  • die-cut the frame (using the same die set above) on some Neenah solar white card stock. adhere some acetate sheet on this frame and add foam adhesive to create the shaker well.
  • add some iridescent sequins as the shaker element on top and close the shaker.
  • adhere the card front on an A7 card base.
  • add the focal images on each window with either liquid glue or tape runner.
  • use the banner die to die-cut some lilac card stock. stamp the sentiment on this piece using Versamark ink. Sprinkle some white embossing powder and heat set with heating tool.
  • adhere the sentiment on the middle of the card to finish the design.

I hope you like this card today and got inspired. Below, you will find links to the supplies used to create this project(s).

For today’s sneak peek, we are showcasing the Dad’s BBQ Stamp Set + coordinating dies.

I have to admit that I struggle when it comes to creating masculine cards so I hope you like my card below.

I started by masking off a panel of Bristol Smooth White Card Stock and inking up the background with some Distress Oxide Inks and the Cascading Stars stencil.

Next, I stamped the images on some Neenah Solar White Card Stock and colored the images in with alcohol markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them all out. I also cut a few strips of black card stock and some pattern paper and adhered on the panel with liquid glue.

I foam-mounted the images on the focal panel for added dimension. I also die-cut the word “DAD” using the Essential Alphabet Die Set and ink-blended the letters to match the background. I adhered the letters on the card with liquid glue.

I finished the design by adding the sentiment that I heat-embossed and using some white gel pen to add some dots and stars for added interest. Here’s another look:

NND APRIL Release Day 2 – Destination Love + Lilac Stamp Sets

It’s Day 2 of the April reveals by Newton’s Nook Designs! I hope you were able to check out yesterday’s reveal as well. You have a chance to win the stamp set being revealed each day so please read through til the end of the blog post to find out more info.  [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.

For today’s sneak peek, we are showcasing the Destination Love + coordinating dies with the Lilac Stamp Set + coordinating dies.

As soon as I saw the Destination Love stamp set, I immediately thought of this card design. I just didn’t know what colors would work well together so I tested a few markers and colored a few images. The one I picked stood out the most and I used the coordinating dies to die-cut the images.

Next, I used the Oval Frame Die set to die-cut the oval frame on some white card stock. The oval die-cut was ink-blended with distress oxide inks and the Sunscape stencil. The negative die-cut was dry-embossed with an embossing folder for added interest.

I foam-mounted the images on the focal panel and finished the card design by adding the sentiment that I heat-embossed on some black card stock.

The next card is really simple. I stamped the images a few times on some A2-size panel and colored the images in with alcohol markers.

For added interest and texture, I stamped the dots a few times from the Tranquil Tides stamp set. I thought this added a whimsical touch to the overall card design.

I finished the design by stamping the sentiment from the Birthday Essentials stamp set. Here’s another look at the card:
