Slimline Christmas Card with Newton’s Nook

Hello my crafty friends! I finally received my household effects and was able to start creating Christmas cards for friends. For today’s project, I am showcasing one of my all-time favorite stamp set by Newton’s Nook Designs called Naughty or Mice with its coordinating dies along with Slimline Frames & Portholes Die Set, Slimline Frames & Windows Die Set and the cute little bow is from the Pines & Holly Die Set.

Here’s how I made this card:

  • adhere the colored images with foam adhesive for dimension.
  • stamp the sentiment on some black card stock with Versamark ink. Sprinkle some white embossing powder and heat-set with the Heating Tool/Gun. Adhere the sentiment with liquid glue.
  • die-cut the red bow using the bow die from the Pines & Holly Die Set and adhere on the card.
  • finish the card design by using some white gel pen to add some dots and stars for more interest and texture.

I hope you like this card today and got inspired. Below, you will find links to the supplies used to create this project. Where available, I use compensated affiliate links at no extra cost to you. Your support helps me to keep bringing you new projects and inspiration. Thank you for stopping by, and have an amazing day!

For Day 3, we are showcasing the Christmas Nap Stamp Set + Coordinating Dies with the Newton’s Gift Stamp Set and Coordinating Dies.

I started by stamping my images on some X-Press It Blending Card and colored the images in with alcohol markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

Next, I ink-blended some Bristol Smooth white card stock and covered the bottom part with masking tape. I used the Starfield Stencil and Antique Linen Distress oxide ink with my blending brush. I removed the masking tape and lightly ink-blended the same color at the bottom of the panel. I adhered this on some A2-size white notecard.

I added the focal image on the card with foam adhesive for more dimension. I stamped the sentiment using Versamark ink on a strip of red card stock. I sprinkled some white embossing powder and heat-set with the heating tool, adhering the sentiment with liquid glue. Here’s another look:

My next project was also stamped on some X-Press It blending card and die-cut with the coordinating die. I also die-cut the tag using the Fancy Edges Tag Die Set with the new Canine Christmas Paper Pad and some Neenah solar white card stock, adhering them with liquid glue.

The focal image was foam-mounted onto the tag for added dimension.

I finished the tag by adding some red ribbon and gold jingle bell, then stamped the sentiment with some red dye ink. Here’s another look:

For Day 2, we are showcasing the Christmas Haul Stamp Set + Coordinating Dies with the Wreath Pups Stamp Set + Coordinating Dies.

I started by stamping my images on some X-Press It Blending Card and colored the images in with alcohol markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

Next, I ink-blended some Bristol Smooth white card stock with some Distress Oxide ink and adhered this panel on some A2-size notecard. I die-cut a panel of some Neenah Solar white card stock using the oval die from the Oval Frames Die Set to create a window. I dry-embossed this using some embossing folder and foam-mounted this panel for added dimension.

I covered the card front with some masking tape and use some diluted white gouache to add some white splatters on the background for added texture. I adhered the focal image on the panel with liquid glue. Lastly, I added some white pearls for added texture and interest and stamped the sentiment with black ink to finish the design. Here’s another look:

My next project has a ton of texture! I used the Snowfall Stencil with some texture paste on some Neenah Solar White Card Stock. I set this aside to dry for about half an hour and adhered this panel on some A2-size notecard.

Next, I die-cut some Bristol Smooth White card using a die from the Frames & Flags Die Set and ink-blended this panel with some distress oxide inks. I also die-cut the snowbank using the Land Border Die and adhered this piece on the card with liquid glue.

Foam-mounting the focal image was necessary to create more dimension to this rather simple card. The sentiment was stamped with Versamark ink and heat-set with heating tool and adhered on the card with liquid glue.

I finished the card design by using some white gel pen to add some dots and stars for added texture and interest. Here’s another look:

Happy Halloween with Franken Newton

Hello Newton’s Nook fans! Thanks for joining me today and I am also up on the Newton’s Nook blog to share another Halloween card, featuring the newly-released Spiderweb Oval Stamp Set that coordinates with the Oval Frame Dies, along with the Franken Newton Stamp Set + Coordinating Dies, Halloween Meows Paper Pad and Frames & Flags Die Set.

Here’s how I made this card:

  • die-cut the pattern paper from the Halloween Meows Paper Pad using the scallop die from the Frames & Flags Die Set. Adhere this piece on some A2-size top-folding notecard.
  • stamp the Spiderweb Oval Stamp Set on some black card stock with Versamark ink. Sprinkle some white embossing powder and heat-set with heating tool. Die-cut the stamped image using the Oval Frame Dies.
  • fussy-cut the middle part of the spiderweb using precision snips and foam-mount this panel on the card for added dimension.
  • stamp the focal image from the Franken Newton Stamp Set and die-cut using the Coordinating Die. adhere this on the card front with foam-adhesive.
  • stamp the sentiment on some black card stock with Versamark ink and sprinkle some white embossing powder. Heat-set the sentiment with the heating tool and adhere on the card also with foam adhesive.
  • finish the card design by adding the bows using the bow die from the Baby Bib Die Set and add some half orange pearls for added texture and interest.

Looking back now, I think I should have used a different color for the bows but I still like the way this card turned out. Here’s another look:

NND August Release Day 4 – Harvest Haul + Newton’s Crate + Giveaway

I am a bit bummed because it’s the last day of the August reveals by Newton’s Nook Designs! Were you able to hop along with us for the first three days? Which one is your favorite so far? Remember that 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 the final day of the reveals, we are showcasing the Harvest Haul Stamp Set + coordinating dies along with the Newton’s Crate Stamp Set + coordinating dies.

For my first project, I started by masking some Bristol smooth white card stock with masking tape and ink-blending this panel using the Sunscape Stencil and some distress oxide inks. I cut this panel and adhered on some Neenah solar white card stock with liquid glue.

I added some texture to the foreground by using some embossing folder and partially embossed the same on the die-cutting machine, then adhering it to a top folding notecard.

I finished the card design by stamping the sentiment on the banner that was die-cut from the Frames & Flags Die Set and heat-set with the heating tool. Here’s another look:

The next project is so cute and I love how this turned out. I started by temporarily taping the Jack-O-Lantern stencil no. 1 on some Neenah solar white panel. I used some orange ink and a blending brush to add the pumpkins.

I did the same to add the pumpkin stems detail by taping Jack-O-Lantern stencil no. 2 to the panel and used some lime green dye ink with another blending brush. I removed the stencil and cut this panel and adhered on some pattern paper from the Autumn Paper Pad with liquid glue.

I needed to ground the pumpkin images from the pattern paper so I adhered two orange strips on both sides, and added the scallop vellum that was die-cut using the Oval Frames Die. The vellum somehow toned down the busy patterns of the background, don’t you think?!

I stamped the images on some Neenah solar white card stock and die-cut using the coordinating die. I colored the images with some alcohol markers and foam-mounted to the card-front for added dimension. I stamped the sentiment on the image with some black ink.

Lastly, I added the orange bow to the card to finish my design. In case you’re wondering, the bow is from the Baby Bib Die Set. Here’s another look at the card:

For Day 3, we are showcasing the Autumn Oval Stamp Set that coordinates perfectly with the previously-released Oval Frames Die Set with the BEAUTIFUL Autumn Paper Pad.

The background was created by die-cutting the Autumn Paper with a rectangle die from my collection. I adhered this panel on some A2-size, top-folding notecard.

The focal image was stamped on some Neenah solar white card stock and die-cut using the Oval Frames Die Set. I fussy-cut around the images using precision snips for added texture and interest.

Alcohol markers were used to color the pumpkins, leaves and berries, including the detailed oval on the side to ground the images [Designer tip: this somehow made the images pop against the yellow background].

I finished the card design by adding the sentiment that was heat-set with heating tool and die-cut using the smallest die from the Oval Frames Die Set.

I stamped the images on some Neenah solar white card stock and colored them in with alcohol markers. I used the coordinating die to cut the image out.

The background was made by by doing the following steps –> (1) cover some Bristol smooth white card stock with some circle masking paper; (2) ink-blend this panel with some distress oxide ink; (3) use some distress sprayer to spray some water and pick up the excess with some paper towel; (4) remove the masking paper and use the same foam-blending tool to add some interest and texture to the moon; (5) remove the masking paper and adhere the ink-blended background to the card with foam-adhesive for more dimension.

Die-cut the grass panel using the Land Border Die on some black card stock and adhere to the foreground with liquid glue. Adhere the focal image on the card. Stamp the bats with some black ink.

Finish the card design by stamping the sentiment on the grass with Versamark ink. Sprinkle some white embossing powder and heat-set with the heating tool. Here’s another look:
