Newton’s Nook Designs & Therm-O-Web Collaboration Week

 

This week Newton’s Nook Designs and Therm O Web are partnering for fabulous Fall, Halloween and Christmas inspiration! All week long both design teams will be sharing ways to use Therm O Web products with Newton’s Nook Designs stamps!  We also have  GIVEAWAY so please make sure to read at the end of this post to find out how you can WIN.

 

I went NND and TMW crazy and created three projects for you today!  I am showcasing (one of my all-time favorite stamp set from Newton’s Nook)  the Sweater Weather stamp set and its coordinating dies with the Happy Howl-Oween stamp set and coordinating dies.  I am also showcasing a LOT of products provided to us by Therm O Web, which you will be able to see if you watch my YouTube video below.  I also would like to take this opportunity to thank Therm O Web for spoiling the NND Design Team with your amazing products.

 

For my first project, I die-cut a masking paper with a circle die and masked my Bristol smooth white card stock.  I inked up my background with some distress oxide inks.  I sprayed my inked background with some water to get the oxidize effect and dabbed it with paper towel to dry.  I used the Deco Foil Transfer Gel and Newton’s Nook Cascading Stars Stencil to create the stars on my background.  I set this piece aside to dry for about 40 minutes and ran it through my laminator with some Deco Foil Ocean Blue Transfer Sheets.  I removed my mask and colored the moon a little bit with my B000 copic marker.

 

 

To create my scene for my trick-or-treaters, I used a house die from my stash and TMW Flock transfer sheets in Purple Punch, Sunshine Yellow, Black Velvet and White Latte to create my spooky house.  I also die-cut the grass using the Land Borders die set.

 

I stamped my image using the Happy Howl-Oween stamp set and colored the images in with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.  I die-cut the image using the coordinating die.  Now that I have all of my elements, I started building up my scene.

 

 

I used a white pigment ink and a blending brush to highlight the grass.  By doing so, this gave it a more realistic effect since I have a HUGE moon shining over everything!  I finished my design by stamping the bats.  I also stamped my sentiment in Versamark ink and sprinkled some white embossing powder.  I used my Wagner heating tool to heat set the sentiment.  Here’s a closer look at the card:

 

 

For my second project, I wanted to use the flock transfer sheets and my embossing folder  to create a winter scene for my critters from the Sweater Weather stamp set.  I have a process video for you for the two Christmas cards.  Here’s the first one:

 

 

For the second Christmas card, I used the Oh Christmas Tree Designer Toner Sheets , the White Latte Flock Transfer Sheet and the Gina K Designs for TMW Red Velvet Deco Foil to create a fun shaker card:

 

 

Here’s my YouTube process video:

Pumpkin Spice & You with Newton’s Nook Designs

Today, I’m sharing another fall/coffee-theme card with one of my favorite stamp sets released last month called Pumpkin Latte.  I don’t know about you, but I am just so ready for sweater weather!  It is still extremely HOT and humid over here and I am dreaming of some cooler weather, or even rain!   Who else is getting antsy and waiting for fall to come?

 

To begin, I stamped my images using Spectrum Noir Alcohol Proof Dye Ink in Rustic Brown on some Neenah solar white card stock.  I colored my images in with my Copic and Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.  I used the coordinating dies, to die-cut the images.

 

On another piece of Neenah solar white card stock, I die-cut a frame and used the negative piece to mask-off some Bristol smooth white card stock.  I used the new Hills & Grass Stencil to add my grassy hill with Mowed Lawn distress oxide ink.  I flipped the stencil so that I can create another grassy hill for added depth and dimension.  I also used the Clouds Stencil with Carved Pumpkin and Worn Lipstick distress oxide inks to create my fall sky.

 

 

Before I adhered my frame on my colored background, I used my Fog ink to stamp small images all over the card.  I wanted to add more details to the background but without overwhelming the whole design.  I foam-mounted the frame on the card and adhered the leaves along the side with some liquid adhesive.

 

Lastly, I foam-mounted the focal image on my card.  I stamped the sentiment from the Fall-ing For You stamp set using my Misti stamping tool for more precision.  Here’s my card:

 

 

The Fall-ing For You stamp set is one of my all-time favorite stamps by Newton’s Nook Designs.   This card is really simple but I love the bold sentiment and also love the colors I used on this card.  Here’s a closer look:

 

 

That is all for today.  I hope you like my card and got inspired.  The supplies I used are listed and linked below in case you would like to purchase them.  Some affiliate links may have been used for some of the products linked, without an additional cost to you.  Thank you for stopping by my blog today and happy stamping!

Today, I am sharing a birthday card showcasing the Let’s Party stamp set.  I started by stamping my images on some Neenah solar white 110 lb. card stock and colored my images in using some Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.  I die-cut the images using the coordinating dies.
I inked up an A-2 size piece of Bristol smooth white card stock with Peacock Feathers distress oxide ink.  To add more texture, I added some gold splatters on the colored background using my Sakura watercolor and my watercolor brush.  I waited for about half an hour for this to dry, and adhered this piece on an A2 size card base.
I die-cut the words “Happy Birthday” a few times on white card stock using a die from Mama Elephant.  I inked up the top piece with some Dusty Concord distress oxide ink.

To begin, I stamped my images on some Neenah solar white card stock.  I colored the images in with my Spectrum Noir Alcohol markers and used the coordinating dies to die-cut the images.

 

I couldn’t pick a favorite image because they’re all so cute and AMAZING!  I decided to feature all of them in one card.  I used a storybook die from my stash to die-cut the white frame.   I adhered a gingham patterned paper onto an A2-size card base.  I foam-mounted the frame on my card and also adhered the mice with foam adhesives.

 

To give the card more texture but not overwhelm the whole design, I die-cut the same gingham patterned paper using the circle from the Frames squared stamp set and banner dies from my stamp.  I adhered these pieces on my card with liquid adhesive.

 

 

To finish the design, I stamped my sentiment with Versafine Onyx black ink.  Here’s a closer look:

It is that time of the month where the entire design team get so excited to show off the new stamps, dies and stencils 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.

For the first day of the reveals, we are showcasing the Pumpkin Latte stamp set and Pumpkin Latte coordinating dies:

 

 

I started out with an A2 size panel of Bristol smooth white card stock and ink-blended this piece with some distress oxide inks.  I inked up another piece of Bristol smooth white card stock and used the Land Borders die to die-cut the hills.

 

I die-cut the birch trees using the Forest Scene Builder die set with some gray card stock.  I also die-cut the pumpkin leaves and vines using an old die from my stash.

 

I stamped and colored my images on some Neenah solar white card stock with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Proof Ink in Rustic Brown.  I colored my images in Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. I die-cut the images using the Pumpkin Latte coordinating dies.

 

I adhered the birch trees on my colored background with some liquid adhesive and foam-mounted the hills.  I layered the rest of the colored images with either liquid or foam adhesive.

 

To finish my design I used my white gel pen and added some line and dots to the images to give it more dimension.  Here’s a little close-up:

 

 

For my second card, I used the Tree Rings stencil to color my Bristol smooth white card stock with my mini ink blending tool and Vintage Photo distress ink.  I smooshed my Aged Mahogany distress oxide ink on an acrylic block and added some water.  I used my watercolor brush to sprinkle some of the color to my colored background.  I let this dry for about 20 minutes and used my frame border die to die-cut the piece.  I foam-mounted the frame and adhered these pieces onto an A2-size kraft card base.

 

I die-cut the leaves using the Autumn Leaves die set with different patterned papers.  I also die-cut another banner strip from some coffee card stock and stamped the sentiment with versamark ink.  I sprinkled white embossing powder and heat-set this with my Wagner Heating tool.  I adhered the banner with some foam adhesive and started layering the autumn leaves on the card.

 

Lastly, I adhered my colored image on the card with foam adhesive and added Caribbean Ocean crystal drops for added texture.

 

 

I don’t know about you but making these cards made me crave some pumpkin spice latte.  I am not sure if they’re already available at Starbuck’s but I’m definitely craving one.  Here’s a closer look:

 

 

What do you think?  Which one is your favorite today?  I hope you like my cards today.

Halloween Card with Newton’s Perfect Pumpkin

Hello Newton’s Nook fans! It’s been super HOT here at home and I have been dreaming about sweater weather, and anything pumpkin related.  This is my inspiration for today’s card.  Although when this post actually goes live, hubby and I will be in South Africa enjoying their winter weather; at least for about a week or so!  If you follow me on instagram, you might be able to see some photos of my trip.

 

For my project today, I am showcasing Newton’s Perfect Pumpkin stamp set, and I paired it with a lot of images from Pick-A-Pumpkin with Newton’s Boo-tiful night, and my sentiment is from the Creepy Cameos stamp set.  The birch tree is from the Forest scene Builder die set and the grass is from the Land Border die set.

 

To begin, I stamped and colored my images on some Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth Premium white card stock.  This card stock is perfect for coloring with alcohol markers. I fussy-cut the images with my precision-cut scissors.

 

The background is ink-blended with different distress oxide inks.  I spritzed this with water using my distress sprayer and dabbed it with my paper towel to dry to get more texture.  I also die-cut the birch trees and the grass a couple of times with some black card stock.

 

I stamped the moon and stars from Newton’s Boo-tiful Night stamp set on my colored background with Versamark ink.  I sprinkled this with some white embossing powder, and heat-set using my Wagner heating tool.  I did the same thing for my sentiment.  I assembled the card by adhering the birch trees first, followed by the grass.  I foam-mounted some of the trees and Newton to create more dimension on my scene.

 

 

To finish my design, I stamped the black bats and added the white dots using my Sakura white gel pen.  I also adhered the spider web using liquid glue.  Here’s a closer look:

 

 

I know it’s too early to create Halloween projects since it’s only August but I love Halloween and creating Halloween cards is one of my favorite thing to do!

 

I hope you like my card today.  The supplies I used are listed and linked below.  Thank you for stopping by and have an amazing day!  Happy stamping!
