NNDFEB19_FlowerTrio
FLOWER TRIO DIE SET
NNDFEB19_BoldBlooms
BOLD BLOOMS STENCIL
NNDFEB19_BokehStencilSet
BOKEH STENCIL SET

For my first project, here’s how I made the card:

  • stamp the images on smooth white card stock.  The butterflies I added for my scene are from the Newton’s Birdbath stamp set.
  • color the image using Copic markers or any coloring medium of your choice.
  • die-cut the image with the coordinating dies.
  • die-cut the birch trees using the Forest Scene Builder dies and the grassy hill with the land border die.
  • die-cut the rest of the elements needed to create the scene.
  • ink up the background on Bristol smooth white card stock with distress oxide inks using the Sunscape stencil.  Spray the background with water and dab it dry with a paper towel.
  • assemble the card on an A2 size white card base.
  • Finish the design by stamping the sentiment and add a pink heart.

NNDLoadsofBloom1A

I just love this image so much!  It reminds me of those times back when I was a child and my sisters and I were riding our bicycles, gathering flowers around the area.  Those were simple times that I will always cherish forever.  Here’s a closer look:

NNDLoadsofBloom1B

I would never trade in those times where my friends and I just enjoyed being kids, riding our bikes, playing games and not wanting to come home when it’s starting to get dark because of dinner.  I am certainly thankful we didn’t have smart phones and computer games back then.

NNDLoadsofBloom1C

For my second project, I used the Flower Trio die, Bokeh Stencil set and the Bold Blooms stencil.  Here’s how I made the card:

  • Ink up some Bristol smooth white card stock using different pastel distress oxide inks with the Bokeh stencil set.
  • Die-cut the flowers using the Flower Trio Die.

IMG_1038

  • Use a stamping mat and bone folder to shape the flowers and give it a little dimension.  If you have a round stylus, it’s better.

IMG_1039

  • Ink up some Bristol smooth white card stock using distress oxide inks and the bold blooms stencil.  Spray water and dab it dry with some paper towel. Use clear sequins as shaker element.

IMG_1037

  • die-cut the diagonal die coverplate and adhere acetate sheet.  Add foam adhesive to create the shaker well and adhere on top of the background.

IMG_1040

  • adhere the flowers and leaves on the card and finish the design by adding the script sentiment die.

NNDFlowerTrioDie1A

Since I used clear sequins as my shaker element, the die-cut flowers really stood out on this card design.  I also added the Crystal clear jewels in the middle of the flowers.  Here’s a closer look:

NNDFlowerTrioDie1B

I really LOVE how this card turned out.  The Flower Trio die set is a must-have for sure. You can even decorate your Spring wreath using this die.  The possibilities are endless!  Here’s another look:

Newton’s Nook Designs January Release – Day 1 – It’s a Plan and Newton Makes A Plan

nndreleaseicon_jan19

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 a stamp set for each reveal 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 It’s a Plan stamp set with Newton Makes a Plan stamp set, and coordinating dies.   Heres what they look like:

nndjan19_plannerall

Before I start, I just want to point out that some of the dies are a bit tricky to match up because they are similar in shape and size so Jennifer was kind enough to share this little sheet to help you to number them before you cut the dies apart.

 

nndcattemplate

I love decorating my planner.  I don’t always have time to do it each month but when I do, I go all out!  I use stencils and distress oxide inks to add color to my pages.  I also adhered some die-cuts, stickers and other cute elements just to make it cuter.

For my first project, I stamped and colored the little kitties from the Newton Makes a Plan stamp set and colored them in with my Copic markers.  Since these images are tiny, I tried to use a maximum of two markers to do my color-blending.  I die-cut the little kitties with its coordinating dies.

I used the Sunscape Stencil and the Evergreens Stencil with my distress oxide inks to add color to my planner pages.  NOTE:  Since I am so over the winter-themed cards you will be seeing a lot of sunshine and happiness on my post this week, haha!  I also used my home-made clouds stencil using the Sky Borders die.  Here’s my monthly calendar spread:

nndplanner1a

I stamped the words on the corresponding days from the It’s a Plan stamp set like “yoga” – which I do every Mondays, “shopping”, I do every Sundays and I leave mostly Tuesdays and Wednesdays to do my card-making and/or design team projects.  I used the tiny heart checklist also from the It’s a Plan stamp set for my “goals”, “to do” and “my mantra”.  I did not fill it all out just yet because I have yet to determine what goals I would like to set for myself this month.  To decorate my planner a little further, I used the little kitties for my yoga days, the one inside the laundry basket for my laundry days on Saturdays, the Kitty holding a present for my husband’s birthday this month and the kitty holding a shopping cart for my grocery shopping day.

Here’s a little close-up of my monthly spread:

nndplanner1c

nndplanner1b

I used the hearts and circle checklist from the It’s a Plan stamp set to add my “to-do’s”, as well as my weekly goals.  Here’s what my weekly spread look like:

nndplanner3a

Since I colored a lot of the images, I decided to create a card using the Newton Makes a Plan stamp set.  Here’s my second project:

nndplanner2a

I used a circle die from my stash to cut out 6 circles on some A2 size 110 lb Neenah solar white card stock.  I used a cat embossing folder also from my stash to add some details onto the foreground.  On a piece of Bristol smooth white card stock, I traced the circle and added different colors of distress oxide inks.  Here’s a close-up:

nndplanner2b

To finish my design, I stamped the sentiment from the Newton Loves Cake stamp set on a banner strip with versamark ink.  I sprinkled white embossing powder on it and heat-set it using my heating tool.  Here’s another look:

nndplanner2c

For our first day of August reveals, we are showcasing the Classy Teachers stamp set and coordinating dies.   This stamp set is super special for me because my daughter is a teacher.  Thank you so much Jen for creating this stamp set.   Teachers work so hard and are often unappreciated.  I think being a teacher is a noble career and words cannot express how proud I am of my daughter for being one.

NNDAug18_ClassyTeachers

To start, I stamped my images on some Neenah solar white card stock with my memento tuxedo black ink and colored them in with my alcohol markers (not Copics).  Yes, I am currently working on a mobile design studio because I’m in the process of moving my entire overseas studio back home to FL (container is currently in Singapore, en-route to FL).   I never realized how hard it was going to be not having my regular supplies.  Even taking my project photos was a huge challenge.  It was raining so hard for the last two weeks and it’s been gloomy.  Anyways, I wouldn’t bore you with all of my crafting dilemma.  Here is the first card:

NNDClassyTeachers1A

Let me just say that the sentiment on this card is my favorite!  Here’s another look:

NNDClassyTeachers1B

For my second card, I wanted to create a cheerful card.  My daughter is my ray of sunshine.  She works so hard at school but still manages to call me after work to update me about her day and how her “kids” made her laugh or cry, etc.!  She is AMAZING!  Here is my second card:

NNDClassyTeachers3A

I used the same sentiment on the second card because I think it is so true!  Here’s another look:

NNDClassyTechers3C

I hope you like my cards today and got inspired.  Would you like to win the “Classy Teachers” Stamp Set?  This stamp set will be given away to ONE lucky winner!

NNDPinaKoala1B

When I was designing this card, I was thinking about Jennifer and Jeff Jackson sipping through their drinks while they were on a cruise last month.  I don’t have the courage to go on a cruise just yet but one of these days, I probably will.

NNDPinaKoala1A

For my second card, I used the adorable Cat Treats stamp set.  A simple design but I’m happy how this turned out.

I think this stamp set os so much fun and it has a lot of possibilities.

NNDNewtonSummerTreats1

I wanted a happy birthday card with a shaker element.   Just looking at this image makes me want to go to Baskin Robbins to get a banana-split!  Ice cream is my favorite dessert so thank goodness I don’t live near one or I will be weighing a ton.

NNDNewtonSummerTreats1A

I used my sakura gelli-roll white pen to add details to the images.

NNDNewtonSummerTreat1B

Here’s my card showcasing the Cozy Campers stamp set and coordinating dies.  I love this stamp set so much because I love camping!  One of these days when my husband and I move back home permanently, he promised to get me a camper.  I just wish it’ll be as cute as Jennifer’s drawings.

NNDCozyCampers1

I created an evening scene with the full moon.  The only thing missing on the table is a glass of wine (or two), or maybe a camp fire!

NNDCozyCampers1A

This card just makes me dream of camping again.   Maybe the next time my husband and I go camping, he will take me to Montana!

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!

Since we are featuring a ton of products this week, I will not have a step-by-step tutorial on how I made the cards.  However, be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel because I will posting video tutorials for most of the cards that you see today in the next few weeks.

Here is my Narly Mermaid card.  I also combined this card with the Tranquil Tides stamp set to create my under-water scene.

NNDNarlyMermaids1

I just love the sparkling jewels that I added to my scene to make them look like bubbles. Here’s a little close-up:

NNDNarlyMermaids1A

The second stamp set is called Purr-maid Newton.  Oh my goodness!  I have been hounding Jennifer to create a mermaid cat and my wishes finally came true!  Haha!  This stamp set is a MUST-HAVE!

Once again I combined the stamp set with the Tranquil Tides stamp set, with the Sea Borders die set and the Waves stencil.

NNDPurrmaidNewton1

I used the Sea Borders die set to create the fun waves.  Here’s another look:

NNDPurrmaidNewton1A

Last but not the least, here is my card using the Manatee-rific stamp set and coordinating dies with the Sunscape stencil.  Just looking at this card makes me happy!

NNDManateerific1

I added more sparkling clear jewels to make them look like bubbles.  I also LOVE that the die cuts the middle piece and the Manatee will hug tine embellishments like heart or seashell included in the stamp set.  SUPER ADORABLE!  Here’s a little close-up:

NNDManateerific1A
