NND JANUARY Release Day 3 – heartfelt meows & heartfelt woofs

It is the third day of the reveals by Newton’s Nook Designs.  Were you able to hop along with us for the last two days? Which one are you dying to get your hand s on so far? 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 WordPress is being viewed.

For Day 3, we are showcasing the Heartfelt Meows Stamp set and coordinating dies and Heartfelt Woofs Stamp Set and coordinating dies that pairs well with the Heart Frames Dies & Banner Trio Dies.

For my cards today, I also used the bow from the Baby Bib Die Set with the Argyle Stencil Set.

To make both cards, I die-cut the scallop heart frame using the second die from the Heart Frames Dies Set on some X_Press It Blending Card Stock. Since Both cards are completely identical in design, I needed two hearts. I stamped the images from the Heartfelt Meows and Heartfelt Woofs with Memento Tuxedo Black on each heart and colored the images in with alcohol markers .

I worked on both background panels by inking up some Light Blue & Pink Card Stock with some darker shades of pink and blue using Argyle Stencil No. 1. I waited for both panels to dry for about 10 minutes, then used Argyle Stencil No. 2 and applied texture paste all over. This gave it more texture and dimension. I set both panels to dry for about half an hour, then adhered on a top-folding notecard.

I cut strips of brown and red card stock as well as two bows, and added both on the cards with liquid glue for more stability. I foam-mounted the focal panel and finished the card designs by adding the sentiments.

Would you like to win the “Heartfelt Meows” or the “Heartfelt Woofs” Stamp Set? We will choose ONE lucky winner for each stamp set!

NND JANUARY RELEASE DAY 2 – ORCHIDS STAMP SET & COORDINATING DIE

It is Day 2 of the January reveals by Newton’s Nook Designs.  I hope you were able to check out yesterday’s reveal.  You also 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. Please click on this particular blog post and you will be able to leave a comment below.  Thank you!]  

For day 2, we are showcasing the Orchids Stamp Set and coordinating die.

For my card below, I also used the Frames and Tags Die Set with the new Petite Hearts Stencil that was just revealed yesterday.

To make the card, I stamped the images from the Orchids Stamp Set on some Bristol Smooth White Card Stock with VersaMark ink. I sprinkled some white embossing powder and heat-set with my heating tool. I colored the images in with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and used the coordinating die to cut them out.

Next, I die-cut the scallop using the scallop die from the Frames and Tags Die Set on some Bristol smooth white card stock. I inked up this panel with some Spun Sugar Distress Oxide ink for some subtle color.

I sprayed some Pixie Spray on the Petite Hearts Stencil to temporarily adhere the same on the background panel. This will prevent it from slipping while I’m adding the embossing paste for more texture and interest. I set this panel aside to dry for about half an hour, and then adhered on a top-folding notecard.

I added a few droplets of some gold watercolor paint using my paintbrush, then adhered the focal images on the card with liquid glue for stability. I finished the design by adding the sentiment that was die-cut using the tag from the Frames & Tags Die set that was heat-embossed with my heating tool!

Would you like to win the “Orchids” Stamp Set? This stamp set will be given away to ONE lucky winner!

NND JANUARY Release Day 1 – KNEAD KITTENS + A7 Frames & Banners Die, Love & Meows Stencil & Petite Hearts Stencil

Hello and Welcome to the Newton’s Nook January Release. I am so excited to show off the new products by Newton’s Nook Designs.  You also 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. Please click on this particular blog post and you will be able to leave a comment below.  Thank you!]  

Brace yourselves because for the first day of the reveals, we have a lot of AMAZING products to show you today! We are showcasing the Knead Kittens Stamp Set and coordinating dies, A7 Frames & Banners Die Set, Petite Hearts Stencil and the Love & Meows Paper Pad.

For my shaker card, I started by stamping the images from the Knead Kittens stamp set on some on some X-Press It Blending Card. Lately I have been using this card stock because it just makes blending so much easier. I colored the images in with alcohol markers and die-cut with the coordinating dies.

Next, I die-cut the card background using the new A7 Frames & Banner Die Set using different colors of card stock with the new Love & Meows Paper Pack. I created my shaker well and added some heart confetti as my shaker element. [Designer confession: To be honest, the paper pack is so beautiful I was having a hard time cutting it out. I may have to go for therapy one of these days about my paper pad collection that I can’t seem to part with. But that’s another story for later, haha!].

I closed the shaker and added this focal panel on an A7 card base. I adhered the images on the card with liquid glue.

I finished my design by die-cutting the sentiment strip using one of the dies from the A7 Frames & Banner Die Set. I stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink and sprinkled some white embossing powder, then heat-set with my heating tool. I adhered the sentiment strip with liquid glue and used some white gel pen to add texture interest to the kittens’ faces.

Would you like to win the “Knead Kitten” Stamp Set? This stamp set will be given away to ONE lucky winner!

Heffy Doodle and Newton’s Nook Designs Collaboration Blog Hop

Welcome to the Heffy Doodle and Newton’s Nook Designs Collaboration Blog Hop! Design Team members from both companies are sharing inspiration using products from both companies!

For my first card, I am showcasing the Yappy Happy Mail stamp set and Sending Heffy Cuts Die by Heffy Doodles, along with Newton’s Happy Mail Stamp Set and Dies, Clouds and Hills & Grass Stencil.

Here’s how I made my first card:

  • Use the Clouds and Hills & Grass Stencil with distress inks and blending brushes to ink up a panel of some Neenah Solar White card stock. Make sure you alternate the colors between the cloud layers.
  • Use a die from your collection to create the stitching line for the paper airplane for added texture.
  • Adhere the panel on some A2-size notecard.
  • Stamp the images on some Neenah solar white card stock and color the images in with alcohol markers.
  • Use coordinating dies to cut them out.
  • Ink-up some Strathmore Bristol Smooth white card stock with distress oxide inks to add some color, then use the Sending Heffy Cuts Die to cut out the word.
  • Adhere the sentiment strip to the background panel.
  • Stamp the Hugs & Kisses sentiment on some black card stock with Versamark ink and heat set with your heating tool. Cut and adhere this strip on the card.
  • Adhere the colored images on the card with either liquid or foam adhesive for added dimension.

My second card below is fairly easy. I wanted to create my own pattern paper by using the envelope image from the Yappy Happy Mail stamp set.

Here’s how I made the second card:

  • Use a die from your stash to die-cut a small panel of Neenah solar white card stock.
  • Use your stamping block and adhere the envelope image from the Yappy Happy Mail stamp set.
  • Stamp the images randomly onto the card stock with Memento Ink.
  • Flip the envelope stamp on your block to use the solid part of the image and stamp some color using Spectrum Noir Oasis Quick Dry Dye Ink. Stamp the heart onto the envelope image with red ink.
  • Fill-in the spots by stamping the paw prints with some Bubblegum ink.
  • Matt the panel with some blue car Stock and adhere on a red A2-size notecard.
  • Stamp the images from the Yappy Happy Mail, Just a Note and Sips & Stories stamp set.
  • Use the coordinating dies to cut the images out.
  • Use the third die from the Framework Die Set with some red card stock that matches the notecard.
  • Adhere some Vellum onto this piece and foam-mount to the card for added dimension.
  • Adhere the colored images with liquid glue.
  • Finish the design by adhering some red heart enamel to the card and stamp the sentiment with black ink.

NND NOVEMBER Release Day 3 – SNOW ANGEL NEWTON + SNOW ANGEL PUPPY + ROLL WITH IT

It’s the last day of the reveals by Newton’s Nook Designs and we are featuring three products today. If you haven’t hopped along with us yet, now is a great time to catch up. 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 WordPress is being viewed. Please click on this particular blog post and you will be able to leave a comment below.  Thank you!]  

For Day 3, we are showcasing the Snow Angel Newton Stamp Set and Dies, Snow Angel Puppy Stamp Set and dies and the Roll With It Stamp Set.

The first and second card samples are completely the same design. I started by stamping both images from the Snow Angel Newton and Snow Angel Puppy on some Neenah Solar white Card Stock. I colored the images in with alcohol markers and die-cut using the coordinating die. I did use my precision snips to cut out the “wings”.

Next, I ink-blended two panels (measuring 4 x 5 1/4) of Bristol Smooth white card stock with Salvaged Patina (for the blue card) and Kitsch Flamingo (for the pink card. I stamped the images on both panels with Versamark ink and embossed the image with white embossing powder and heat-set with my heating tool. I used the coordinating die and die-cut some masking paper to mask off the images. Since I was planning to add texture paste to the ink-blended backgrounds, I didn’t want the image covered with paste.

I used the Petite Snow stencil and texture paste for added texture to the background. Using Therm-O-Web’s Stencil Pal made it easier to spread the paste evenly on both panels. I removed the mask and set both card panels aside to let it dry for half an hour.

I adhered the colored images on the card with liquid glue. I also stamped the sentiment on black card stock with Versamark ink and heat-set with the heating tool, then adhered on the panel with liquid glue.

Lastly, I added the black & white stripes pattern paper on two A2-size notecards, then added the focal panel with liquid glue.

For my next card, I repeated the same steps above for stamping and die-cutting using the images from Snow Much Cheer.

For my card layout, I used the Slimline Frames and Porthole Die Set to die-cut the scallop on some Neenah Solar White Card Stock. I ink-blended this panel using the Slimline Masking Square Stencil and Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide ink.

I foam-mounted the focal panel on some Red Slimline card base measuring 8 1/2 by 3 1/2. I adhered the images on the card and stamped the sentiment in t he middle square with Memento Tuxedo black ink. I colored the letters and the snowman’s head with alcohol markers.

I finished my card design by adding some glittered stars. I love how this card turned out!

So there you have it folks! If you hopped along with us throughout this week, I’d LOVE to hear what your favorites are! I hope you have been inspired by the design team all week long! The products will be available tomorrow so grab your favorites first thing before they sell out!

I adhered the colored images on the bookmark and added glossy accents to the eyeglasses for added texture. I set this aside to let it dry for about half an hour and worked on adding a sentiment to the bookmark.

NND NOVEMBER Release Day 1 – TIME FOR COFFEE + coffee house stories paper pad

Hello and Welcome to the Newton’s Nook November Release. I am so excited to show off the new products by Newton’s Nook Designs.  You also 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. Please click on this particular blog post and you will be able to leave a comment below.  Thank you!]  

For the first day of the reveals, we are showcasing the Time For Coffee Stamp Set + Coordinating Dies with the Coffee House Stories 6×6 Paper Pad!

For my first project, I started by stamping the images from the Time for Coffee Stamp Set on some Espresso Car Stock with Versamark ink. I sprinkled some white embossing powder to this and used my heating tool to heat-set the images.

Next, I die-cut a circle scallop using a die from my collection on some Light Blue Card Stock. I also die-cut another circle on Neenah solar white which I ink-blended using Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide Ink. I adhered both pieces with liquid glue.

I stamped the image from the Newton Loves Coffee Stamp Set and colored the images in with Spectrum Noir Alcohol markers. I used the coordinating die to die-cut the image and adhered this image on the ink-blended circle panel.

Next, I cut abut 1 1/4 inches of patterned paper from the Coffee House Stories Paper pad and adhered a scalloped decorative edge on both sides for added texture and interest. I adhered this on the dark brown panel that was previously heat-embossed and added on an A2-size notecard.

I finished the design by foam-mounting my focal panel on t he card for added dimension, and stamped the sentiment using Versafine Clair Nocturne ink. This is my go-to ink for stamping sentiments on white card stock.

The next project is really simple. To create the tag, I used the Fancy Edges Tag Die-set and die-cut some patterned paper from the Coffee House Stories 6×6 paper pad. I also used the same die on Espresso and Mint Green Card Stock. I adhered them all together to create the beautiful tags. This is honestly one of my favorite tag die-set ever!

Next, I stamped the images from Newton Loves Coffee Stamp Set and colored the images in with my alcohol markers. I used the coordinating die to cut them out and foam-mounted to the tags for added dimension.

I finished the tags by adding the sentiment and the holly with a matching red ribbon and gold twine for that festive touch. Here’s a closer look:

NND OCTOBER Release Day 4 – PREHISTORIC CHRISTMAS, ChRISTMAS PHEASANT & HEARTFELT HOLIDAYS

It’s the last day of the reveals by Newton’s Nook Designs and we are featuring three products today. If you haven’t hopped along with us yet, now is a great time to catch up. 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 WordPress is being viewed. Please click on this particular blog post and you will be able to leave a comment below.  Thank you!]  

For Day 4, we are showcasing the Prehistoric Christmas Stamp & Dies, Christmas Pheasant Stamp & Dies with the Heartfelt Holidays that coordinates with the previously released Heart Frames & Banner Trio Dies.

The first card is clean and simple. I die-cut the scallop frame from the Frames & Flags Die Set and used masking tape to mask off the card stock. I ink-blended this panel with some Seedless Preserves, Picked Raspberry, Carved Pumpkin and Mustard Seed distress oxide inks.

I sprayed the panel with water and picked up the excess with some paper towel, and adhered this on an A2-size white notecard.

Next, I stamped the images on some Neenah solar white card stock and colored the images in with alcohol markers. I used the coordinating die to cut them out. I added the images on the card using liquid glue. I finished the design by adding the sentiment, and glittery stars to give it a whimsical touch.

I am starting to really LOVE creating clean and simple card so the next project is another easy one. A one-layer card is a the way to go!

I basically repeated the steps that I did above with the ink-blending and coloring the images. I also stamped the trees from the Festive Forest Stamp Set and used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

I popped-up the first tree with foam adhesive and added the other two with liquid glue. I also foam-mounted the focal image to make it stand out, finishing the design by stamping the sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black Ink.

And last but not the least is the Heartfelt Holidays project. For all you coloring people out there, this is another must-have!

For a cohesive look, I only used some variations of green and red! Nothing too busy here! I just LOVE the simplicity of this stamp set and I am so happy that Newton’s Nook is adding more stamp set to match the Heart Frames Die Set.

I finished my card design by stamping the sentiment on some red card stock and used the Banner Trio Die Set to cut it out. I foam-mounted this onto the card for added dimension.

So there you have it folks! If you hopped along with us throughout this week, I’d LOVE to hear what your favorites are! I hope you have been inspired by the design team all week long! The products will be available tomorrow so grab your favorites first thing before they sell out!

Would you like to win the “Prehistoric Christmas” or the “Heartfelt Holidays”  Stamp Set?  We will choose ONE lucky winner for each stamp set!
