NNDJune18_NewtonsKitchen

I stamped my images on some smooth white card stock and colored them in with my Copic markers.  I die-cut the images using the coordinating dies.  For every stamp release, I color images more than I need and save the ones I didn’t use for another project later on.

I wanted to create a cute scene for Chef Newton here so I die-cut some pieces of colored card stock using a die from my stash.  I adhered the die-cut pieces onto my card stock, and added Chef Newton in the middle.  Here is Newton’s bakeshop:

To finish my design, I added the giant cupcake and apple pie from the Love A La Carte stamp set (retired).

I stamped the sentiment on some die-cut panel and adhered it on my card.  Here’s another look:

I have another card that I made using this set, but I also mixed it with the Made From Scratch stamp set, with the Frames and Flags die.

I absolutely LOVE mixing and matching stamp sets by Newton’s Nook. Here’s another look:

Today, the design team is showcasing two stamp sets – Wine A Little stamp set and coordinating dies with the Coffee & Wine stamp set.   I LOVE WINE so of course I love both stamp sets!  This may be my favorite thus far although it is really tough to pick a fave since they’re all AMAZING!

For my first card, I stamped the images from the Wine & Coffee stamp set on some Neenah solar white card stock and colored them in with my Copic markers.  I purposely didn’t stamp the middle of the card because I wanted the focal point to be the sentiment.    If you read my Designer’s Nook series email this week, I did a similar design to my card but I love how this one turned out.  Even though the focal point is the sentiment, I love the colored images on the background.

NNDCoffee&Wine1

Isn’t it true that life is what happens between coffee and wine?

NNDCoffee&Wine1B

I added some highlights to the stamped images with my C1 Copic marker to give it more dimension.  Here’s another look:

NNDCoffee&Wine1A

For my second card, I colored my background with another stencil from my stash.  I dry-embossed the card stock with the Postage die from the Framework Die set.

I stamped the images on some smooth white card stock and colored them with my Copic markers.  I die-cut the images using the coordinating dies.  I adhered the images on my colored background panel.

I stamped the sentiment on a die-cut banner from the Frames and Flags die set.  I die-cut the “Cheers” script sentiment using a die from the Cocktail Mixer coordinating dies.

NNDWIneALittle1

Don’t you just love the gold details on the “Cheers” script sentiment?

It is so true that the best wines are the ones we drink with loved ones and friends.  Here’s another look:

It is the second day of the June reveals by Newton’s Nook Designs.   I hope you were able to check out yesterday’s reveal.  You have a chance to win each stamp set during release week so check out the details I have indicated at the end of this blog post.  [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 our projects today, the design team is showcasing the Loveable Llamas stamp set and coordinating dies.  I was super excited when I saw this stamp set because there are two Llamas in different poses and some accessories to dress them up.  I LOVE THE SUNGLASSES!  Here’s what the stamp set look like:

NNDJune18_LoveableLlamas

I started out by stamping my images on some smooth white card stock and colored them in with my Copic markers.  I die-cut the images using the coordinating dies.

I wanted to add the cacti images from the Cultivated Cacti stamp set.  I stamped them on some white card stock with green and pink inks.  I added some dot details using the Faber Castell black pen.

I stamped the balloons from the Playful Pandas stamp set (revealed yesterday).  I colored them in with my Copic markers, and added some white dots using my Sakura Gellyroll Pen.  I adhered the Llama on top.  Here’s the card:

NNDLoveableLlamas1

I think the cacti images went perfectly well with the Llama.  I also added some shadows under the Llama using my C2 and C0 Copic markers.

NNDLoveableLlamas1A

Here’s another look:

For my second card, I dry-embossed some white card stock using the new Serene Stripes stencil (revealed yesterday) with my embossing pad.  I colored the background with some distress oxide inks.

Isn’t he adorable?  I added the sunglasses and covered it with glossy accents to make it look realistic.  He’s so groovy!  Here’s a little close-up:

Newton’s Nook Designs June Release – Playful Pandas

NNDJune18ReleaseIcon

I get super excited each month as we start our reveals of the new stencils, stamp set and dies by Newton’s Nook Designs.   You also have a chance to win each stamp set during release week so check out the details I have indicated at the end of this blog post.  [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 our first reveal day, the design team is showcasing the two new stencils called Serene Stripes and Sunscape, with the Playful Pandas stamp set and coordinating dies.  Here’s what they looks like:

NNDJune18_Stencils

NNDJune18_PlayfulPandas

I know this sounds redundant but each reveal month, I am just blown away by the talented Jennifer Jackson.   It seems that every month, it just gets better and better!

For my first card, I stamped the images on some white card stock with my Tim Holtz stamp platform and memento tuxedo black ink.  I colored the images in with my Copic markers.  This did not take a long time since Pandas are generally black and white, but I highlighted them with some light gray Copic marker to give it more dimension.  I die-cut the Pandas and bamboo with the coordinating dies.

I cut an A2 size piece of Bristol smooth white card stock and colored my background using the new Sunscape stencil, with my mini ink blending tool.  I used Picked Raspberry and Tattered Rose distress Oxide Inks.   I die-cut the card stock with a die from my stash.  I adhered the acetate sheet and added foam adhesive to create my well for my shaker card.

I added some sparkling clear sequins by Kat Scrappiness, and adhered my card base onto the shaker to secure my shaker elements.  I die-cut some mint green card stock using the Sky borders die.  I wanted to make it look like grassy hills.  I adhered the hills on top of the acetate, and glued the pandas and bamboo as well.  To finish my design, I stamped the sentiment “Pada-monium” on my card.  Here’s what it looks like:

NNDPlayfulPandas2

Don’t you just love those little pandas?  They are adorable!

NNDPlayfulPandas2A

I love the colors that I used on this card.  The pandas are so cute and I love the new Sunscape stencil.  Here’s another close-up:

NNDPlayfulPandas2B

For my second card, I wanted to make a different design by adding the pandas in the middle of the card.

I colored some white card stock using the Serene stripes stencil with Lucky Clover distress oxide ink and my mini-ink blending tool.  I die-cut another piece of some white card stock using a border die from my stash, and adhered these two pieces with foam adhesive.  I finished my design by adhering the pandas, balloons and bamboo in the middle of the card.  Here’s the card:

NNDPlayfulPandas1

I added some white dots to the cheeks, balloons and also the bamboo.  Here’s a little close-up:
