I used my foam tape to adhere my unicorn, and stamped my sentiment using my new stamping platform tool by Tim Holtz.

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:

 

 

{Would you like to win a Prize pack including a Mega Runner from Xyron and a $25 store credit to Newton’s Nook Designs?}

One winner will be randomly chosen from blog posts throughout the week so the more posts you leave comments on the better your chances are of winning! You have until Friday August 4th at midnight CST to comment. The winner will be announced on the NND blog post on Monday, August 7th.

Xyron will also be giving away a prize pack! Make sure to visit their facebook page each day this week for inspiration and leave comments there for another chance to win!  Have a great week!

NNDCoctailMixer

I colored my images in with my Copic markers and used the coordinating dies to die-cut the images.  For my card front, I used some inexpensive make-up brushes with my distress oxide inks to add my background color.  This is a really simple card but I love how it turned out.  To finish my design, I added glossy accents to the images.  Here is my card:

Small Paws, Big Hearts

Hello everyone.  I am back today for Newton’s Nook Designs and I am sharing a simple dog-themed card, showcasing the Terrific Terriers stamp set and its coordinating dies.  I am currently in Toronto, Canada undergoing physiotherapy so I will keep this blog post short.

 

I started out by stamping my images on Neenah solar white card stock and I colored my images in with my Copic markers.  I die-cut the rest of the pieces that I needed for my card using dies from my stash.  I finished my design by creating my own “patterned paper” using the paw prints and the heart that came with the stamp set.

 

Here is my card today.  As you can see, it is very simple but I really love how it turned out.  This stamp set is now available for purchase at http://www.newtonsnook.com.  Have an amazing day!

NND20170601_FurrEverFriends_PKG

 

I wanted to create a scene that is somewhat ethereal to make it look like the pets are just hanging out in heaven. I know this is where they go when they pass.

 

I stamped my images on Neenah solar white card stock and used my Brother Scan N Cut2 machine to die-cut my images. I die-cut another rectangular card stock and used my sun stencil to create the look of sun. I die-cut the rest of the card stock, as well as my acetate sheet to create the window for my shaker card. I added some iridescent confetti and sequins available from Kat Scrappiness to finish the design. Here is my card:
