STAMPtember Collaboration with Simon Says Stamp and Newton’s Nook Designs

Today Newton’s Nook Designs is featured on the Simon Says Stamp site with an EXCLUSIVE stamp set that was designed just for the 2019 STAMPtember celebration!  You can purchase the new Let’s Party stamps and coordinating die set today at Simon Says Stamp.  Remember, these items are ONLY available through Simon Says Stamp while supplies last!
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.
I foam-mounted the die-cut panel on my colored background.  This frame piece was die-cut using the Gift Box cover up die-namics from My Favorite things.  I adhered the Happy Birthday die-cut on the foreground and added my cute critters.  Here’s my card:
To finish my design, I added some glossy accents to the balloon for added texture and dimension and also adhered the little gift boxes between the two dogs.  Here’s a little close-up:

NNDStamptember18_HelloBeautiful
I started out by stamping my images on some smooth white card stock and I colored them in with my Copic markers.  I fussy-cut the image with my precision scissors.  For my first card below, I also used the Everglade Collage Wafer Dies by Simon Says Stamp and an older stamp set by Newton’s Nook called Newton’s Autumn.  I stamped the leaves on some white card stock, colored them in with my Copic markers and die cut the leaves using the coordinating dies.  I adhered the leaves on my collage frame.

I cut an A2 size piece of some Bristol Smooth white card stock and inked it up with Tumbled Glass distress oxide ink.  I used my Darice Cats embossing folder to add some cute texture to this colored background.  I die-cut some white card stock with the Everglade Collage Wafer Dies and adhered this piece onto my colored and embossed background.

I assembled my card by adhering my foreground to my card base.  Here’s my first card:

I couldn’t help but add that cute bow from my all-time favorite Pines & Holly die set by Newton’s Nook Designs.  Here’s a little close-up:

Also added some blue enamel dots from my stash and used my white gel pen to add more details to the card to finish the design.  Here’s another look:

Also used my white gel pen to add more details to the little pups and to the balloons to give it a whimsical touch.  To finish my design, I used glossy accents to make the balloons shine!

Merry Wishes Gift Card Holder

Hello my crafty friends!  I hope you are all ready for Christmas!  I am still wrapping presents and prepping for the holidays and one of the things I made today is this special Gift Card Holder that will house a gift card for my daughter. She loves reading, and she loves Harry Potter so I thought it’s appropriate to use this stamp set that I purchased awhile back from The Sassy Club, as well as my favorite stamps and dies from Lawn Fawn.

I started out by stamping my images on Neenah solar white card stock and colored them in with my Copic markers. I used my Brother Scan N Cut 2 Machine to die-cut the images from The Sassy Club since this stamp set doesn’t have any coordinating dies. I also die-cut the other stamped images from Lawn Fawn with the Stitched Hillside Backdrop and the Stitched Mountain Border dies, as well as the embellishments that I wanted to add to the card to create my scene.

For the inside of the card, I used Fancy Scalloped Rectangle Stackables, Lift the Flap and Simple Gift Card Slot Dies by Lawn Fawn to house my gift card.

To finish my design, I added stickles to the snow, the lampposts, as well as the trail of stars on the card front. For the inside of the card, I used my Sharpie White Paint Pen to draw the arrow and wrote the word “lift”. Here’s my card:

Front of the card:

Inside of the card:

I really love how this card turned out. It took me an hour or two to create it but this card is really special and I know that my daughter will appreciate it very much. I hope you like my card today. I have listed and linked the supplies I used. Thanks for stopping by my blog today and have a Merry Christmas!

NND STAMPtember set

I started out by stamping my images on Neenah Solar White card stock with my memento tuxedo black ink and colored my images in with Copic markers.  I also used my Sakura white and black glazed pens to add more details to the images.  I die-cut the images with the coordinating dies.

I die-cut my Strathmore Watercolor paper using my rectangle dies and created a sunset sky using my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.  I wanted to create a cute hillside scene for my little doxies so I decided to use my portrait stitched hillside and landscape stitched hillside backdrop dies.  Here’s my card:
