For Day 3, we are showcasing the Baa Stamp Set and coordinating dies.

This stamp set is probably one of my favorites from the release this week!  Once again I wanted some soft colors to welcome spring!

I started by stamping my images on some Neenah solar white with Memento Rich Cocoa ink.  I colored the images in with alcohol markers and positioned the dies with some purple tape to die-cut them out.

Next, I die-cut the elements that I need to create my scene using some of my favorite scene-builder dies from Newton’s Nook –>  Land Borders Die Set (for the grass and hill), Picket Fence Die and the Sky Scene Builder die set. The tiny trees were die-cut using a die from my collection.

I prepared my background by adding the clouds using the Clouds Stencil with some blending brush and dye ink.  I adhered this panel on an A-2 size notecard.   I started adhering the pieces that I die-cut earlier to create my scene and foam-mounted the grass for added dimension.

I adhered the colored images with some liquid glue and finished the design by adding the sentiment that was embossed and heat-set on some black card stock.  Here’s another look at the finished card:

Hoppy Spring with Newton’s Nook Designs

Hoppy spring!  I know things are so scary for all of us at the moment and creating cards is the one thing that calms my soul.  Without this hobby, I’d probably go nuts!  My husband and I are currently stuck overseas and we are not allowed to go anywhere (or fly home)!  I am sure a lot of you are in the same situation so let us all pray and hope that this pandemic will go away soon!  This is why I decided to share some cheerful shaker card today, showcasing the Hop into Spring stamp set and coordinating dies, with the Framework die set, Woodland Picnic stamp set and coordinating dies, Sky Scene builder dies, Land Border die set and the Essential Alphabet dies.   

 

To make my shaker card, I started by die-cutting some Bristol smooth white card stock using the biggest die from the Framework die set.  I ink-blended this panel with Picked Raspberry, Worn Lipstick and Spun Sugar distress oxide inks.  I used my distress sprayer to spray some water on this panel and dabbed it with my paper towel to dry.  I used a stitched circle die from my stash to die-cut the colored panel to create my window and adhered this piece on an embossed white card stock.  I also used the same circle die to die-cut the grass using the Land Borders die.

 

I stamped the two bunnies from the Hop Into Spring and Woodland Picnic stamp sets on some Neenah solar white card stock and colored them in with my alcohol markers.  I used the coordinating dies to die-cut the images.

 

To create my scene, I used the Sky Builder die set to die cut the sun ad clouds and the word “SPRING” using the Essential Alphabet die set.  Now that I have all of the elements I needed, I started to assemble my card.

 

I added some acetate sheet on my ink-blended panel and foam adhesive to create my well. I adhered the grass and clouds with some liquid adhesive. I added some iridescent hearts as my shaker element.

 

I used “Press N Seal” to line up the letters on my card and adhered them using some liquid glue.

 

 

 

I stamped the word “hoppy”  with Versafine Onyx Black ink and finished my design by adding white dots to the flower using my white gel pen.  Here’s a closer look:

 

 

I hope I have inspired you to create something beautiful today!  The supplies I used are listed and linked below.  thanks for stopping by and happy stamping!

XOXO You Arf The Best with Newton’s Nook Designs

Hello Newton’s Nook fans!  I hope you are having a great week!  Have you checked out the February release last week by NND?  I am back today for more design team inspiration featuring the new Sky Scene Builder die set and Petite Flowers stencil along with the Puppy Playtime stamp set and land borders die set.

To begin, I stamped my dog images from the Puppy Playtime stamp set and I colored the images in with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.  I die-cut the images using the coordinating dies.

My colored background panel was ink-blended using Worn Lipstick and mustard Seed distress oxide inks.  I used the Petite Flowers stencil to add more texture to the background.  I adhered this panel to an A2 size card base.

To create my scene, I die-cut the hill and grass pieces with some Bristol smooth white card stock and inked up the pieces with Mowed Lawn distress oxide ink.  The clouds and sun were die-cut using the new Sky Scene Builder die set.  I also die-cut the frame with some pink card stock using a die from my stash.  Now that I have all of the pieces that I needed, I started to assemble the card.

 

To finish my design, I stamped the sentiment on the clouds with Lobster Ink and Peacock Feathers distress oxide ink.  I also used my black glazed pen to add more depth and dimension to the dogs’ eyes.  Here’s a closer look:

 

 

I hope you like my card today.  The supplies I used are listed and linked below.  Check out Newton’s Nook Designs Blog, Instagram and Facebook fan group for more design team inspiration.  Thanks for stopping by today and happy stamping!

For today’s reveal, we are showcasing Newton’s Rain Boots stamp set and coordinating dies.

 

 

 

 

 

To create my card, I stamped the images on some Neenah solar white card stock and colored the images in with my Spectrum Noir TriBlend markers.  The umbrella image is from the Umbrella Pals stamp set.  I die-cut the images with the coordinating dies.

 

The clouds were die-cut using the new Sky Scene Builder die set.  I love that the clouds have different shapes and the stitching details make it so much cuter!  I have a feeling these dies will be my go-to dies to create scenes.

 

The background panel was created by using the Raindrops stencil (revealed on Monday) and Deco Foil White Pearl Metallix gel.  I let this dry for about half an hour and adhered this piece on an A2 size card base.  I also die-cut the grass and hills using the Land Borders die set.  The hill was adhered with some liquid glue and the grass was foam-mounted to create more dimension.

 

I added the clouds with some liquid and foam adhesive and the images I colored were also foam-mounted on the card.

 

 

 

 

To finish my design, I added the heart on the cloud from the What A Hoot stamp set.  I also used my gel pen to add some white dots to the boots!  I really love how this card turned out.  Here’s a closer look:

For today’s reveal, we are showcasing the adorable Bitty Bibs stamp set and Baby Bibs coordinating dies with the Sky Scene Builder die set.

The sentiment was stamped on some black card stock with versamark ink and heat-embossed with my heating tool.

 

 

 

To finish my design, I added the hearts that were stamped and colored using the What A Hoot stamp set.  I absolutely LOVE all the colors on this card.  The bright yellow background made the images pop!  Here’s a closer look:

 

 

 

 

To finish my design, I stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink and sprinkled some embossing powder, then heat-set using my heating tool.  I added some white heart sprinkles to adorn the card and glossy accents to the heart for more texture and dimension.  Here’s a closer look:
