Newton’s Nook Designs October Release – Day 4 – Prehistoric Christmas & Christmas Pheasant + Coordinating Dies, Heartfelt Holidays

Happy Thursday! It’s the last day of reveal week over at Newton’s Nook Designs and its been so exciting to share a ton of inspiration with y’all this week! It might not be the holiday season yet, but it sure looks like it’s here in my craft room! Today we are showcasing the Prehistoric Christmas & Christmas Pheasant + Coordinating Dies, Heartfelt Holidays stamp sets! Here’s how I was inspired!

Reveal week if definitely ending with a bang as I have 3 cards to share with y’all today!

I created the first card using the Heartfelt Holidays stamp set, the latest addition to the Heartfelt collection, which happens to be one of my favorites collections from Newton’s Nook Designs!

To create this card, I started by stamping and coloring the image using copic markers. Then I die cut it with the largest scallop heart from the Heart Frame Die Set (the Heartfelt Holidays stamp set, along with ALL the Heartfelt stamps, work with the Heart Frame Die Set and the Banner Trio Die Set.)

To finish off the card, I added the die cut heart to an A2 piece of pattern paper from the NEW Meowy Christmas Paper Pad. I created the sentiment using the word “merry” from the Snow Globe Shaker Die Set cut from golden card stock and trimmed the “merry Christmas” from the Heartfelt Holidays stamp set. I felt like the word die cut was fading into the colored image, so I backed it with a smaller heart die cut from vellum. Lastly, I added some jewels!

For my second card, I started by stamping and coloring two of the dinosaurs from the Prehistoric Christmas stamp set, and die cutting them with the coordinating dies.

To create the scene, I started by die cutting two hills, using a sheet of pattern paper from the Meowy Christmas Paper Pad. Next I inked up the card bases using the Snowfall Stencil with some light blue ink. layered the hills and dinosaurs onto the card front, stamped a sentiment from the same stamp set and finished off the card with some snow flake shaped sequins.

For my last card of the reveal, I made a CAS-ish card using the mini Christmas Pheasant stamp set. I started by coloring and die cutting the little pheasant. Next, I embossed a card front using the Holiday Foliage Stencil.

To finish of the card, I die cut multiple banners using the Frames & Flags Die Set and Banner Trio Die Set, from white card stock for the sentiment and the pattern paper pad, Meowy Christmas Paper Pad. I layered them on to the embossed card front, and added the Pheasant image!

Newton’s Nook Designs October Release – Day 3 – Christmas Cocktails & Dairy Christmas + Coordinating Dies

Happy Wednesday! It’s reveal week over at Newton’s Nook Designs and I’m so excited to share a ton of inspiration with you this week! It might not be the holiday season yet, but it sure looks like it’s here in my craft room! Today we are showcasing the Christmas Cocktails & Dairy Christmas along with their coordinating Dies! Here’s how I was inspired!

Both this sets challenged my creativity as they aren’t my “go to” images, not sure about the cocktails, but the animals and critters are slowly growing on me!

For my first card, I started by stamping and coloring the image from the Dairy Christmas stamp set and die cutting it with the coordinating die. Next I die cut a grass edge, along with a hill from a sheet of pattern paper from the Meowy Christmas Paper Pad.I also die cut a fence from white card and inked it up a bit using some brown ink. Lastly I die cut a banner from the Banner Trio Die Set and stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set on to in.

To assemble the card, I created a cloud background using blue card stock, the Petite Cloud Stencil and some texture paste. After it dried I added all the die cut elements along with the colored image using a combination of foam tape and liquid glue to add some dimension.

For my second card, I stamped, colored and die cut all the images from the Christmas Cocktails stamp set.

Next, I created the background for card, starting with stamping and embossing a sentiment in the center of an A2 card base. Then I inked up in a blue ombre and then using the Petite Snow Stencil along with white pigment ink. Once the ink dried, I shifted the stencil and added some glitter gel to the panel.

Once the glitter gel dried, I added all the cocktail images around the sentiment using foam tape.

Vintage Holidays Sneak Peak Day 2 | Honey Bee Stamps

Happy Tuesday! Welcome back to my little space on the internet! Sharing another sneak peak at the Vintage Holiday release coming this Thursday! Today I’m sharing a look at the new Falling Snow Background stamp,
Hug In A Mug Stamps & Dies, and Mugs & Kisses Dies, along with the Vintage Holiday Paper Pad.

To create this card, I started by embossing the Falling Snow Background stamp with silver embossing powder onto an A2 piece of white card stock, and lightly inked it up with some light blue ink. Next, I stamped and embossed the sentiment from the Hug In A Mug Stamp Set on black card stock and die cutting with the coordinating dies.

Can you believe that this card has no coloring! Yup, only die cutting the mugs and add on from the Mugs & Kisses Dies. I die cut the mugs from a sheet of pattern paper from the Vintage Holiday Paper Pad and the rest of the pieces from white glitter card stock.

I added all the pieces to the ink background using foam tape and liquid adhesive to add some dimension. And as always I finished of the card with some jewels!

Newton’s Nook Designs October Release – Day 1 – Snow Much Cheer & Newton’s Stocking + coordinating Dies, Meowy Christmas Paper Pad

Happy Monday! It’s reveal week over at Newton’s Nook Designs and I’m so excited to share a ton of inspiration with you this week! It might not be the holiday season yet, but it sure looks like it’s here in my craft room! Today we are showcasing the Snow Much Cheer & Newton’s Stocking along with their coordinating Dies, and Newton’s Nook Designs first ever Meowy Christmas Paper Pad! Here’s how I was inspired!

I usually hoard pattern paper, but I can’t hoard Newton’s Nook Designs first paper pad!! it’s adorable and perfect for the holidays!

For my first card, started by stamping the image from the Newton’s Stocking stamp set, and colored in Newton using copic markers and die cut it using the coordinating die. Then I paper pieced the stocking from a paw print sheer from the Meowy Christmas Paper Pad.

Next I created the background using two sheets from the same paper pad, cutting it into strips and alternating and adding them to the card front. When I tried to add the colored die cut, it was drowning in the background, so I die cut a vellum circle using Circle Frames Die Set and stamped the sentiment on it. I layered it with the colored image and finished off the card with some jewels.

For my second card, I started by stamping and coloring all the Snow Much Cheer stamp set with copic markers and cut them out using the coordinating dies. At this point I decided that I loved all the images and wanted to use them all on my card, and went with a slimline card!

To create the slimline card, I started buy die cutting the scallop rectangle from the Slimline Frames & Portholes Die Set and the frame from the Slimline Frames & Windows Die Set. Then I die cut the frame again from Slimline Frames & Windows Die Set again, from a sheet of the Meowy Christmas Paper Pad. I stamped and embossed a sentiment from the same stamp on to one of the pattern paper squares and placed in the middle of the card. I arranged the snowmen and women on the sides of the cards and added some jewels to finish off the card.

Would you like to win the “Snow Much Cheer” or the “Newton’s Stocking”  Stamp Set? We will choose ONE lucky winner for each stamp set!

All The Feels Kit | Erin Lee Creative

Happy Friday Y’all! I’m so excited to share this fun card kit with all of you! Erin Lee Creative was kind enough to send me their latest kit, All the Feels. I channeled my daughter and created some rainbow emoticons using my favorite technique, ink blending with distress inks!

I create two cards, as I wasn’t sure how the texture paste was going to show on the distress ink, but ended up sharing the card, even though I didn’t think it was perfect!

For the first card, I started with a stitched square die cut and attached the stencil from the kit after removing the face cut outs. I inked up 9 of the squares, and when it dried I added the face cut out and covered it texture paste.

For the second card, I made regular A2 with all the emoticons! I finished off both cards with sentiments that I stamped and fussy cut, and attached them to the card front using some foam tape.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope that you were inspired to create something! Make sure to tag me @everydayengineered so that we can see what you have created! 

Happy Crafting!

Pretty Pink Posh

Monster Birthday! | Pretty Pink Posh

Happy end of Stamptember! It’s a big month for stamping and I was so excited to be able to join in for the first time! Incase you missed the posts, you can check them out here and here. After I bought literally everything this month, I have put myself on spending freeze, indefinitely! I know that I am going to end up breaking it for the Pretty Pink Posh winter release, so here I am trying to justify my most recent purchases from them! I used the Monster Hugs stamp set earlier in the month here and y’all loved it so much that I decided to put it out again for a cute-not-spooky birthday-not-halloween card! I am tempted to attempt an Halloween card, so maybe I’ll add that to my “to create” list!

To create this card, I started by stamping all the monsters from the Monster Hugs stamp set along with all the “accessories” from the Birthday Friends stamp set. I colored them using copic markers. You can see how I colored them here. And then die cut them using the coordinating dies, Monster Hugs and Birthday Friends.

Copic Combo : BG 10, 11, 13, 15; RV 21, 23, 25; V 01, 04, 05, 06, Y13, 15; YG 21, 23, 25; YR 01, 02, 04, 07

Next I die cut a stitched square using the Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Squares from white card stock, and dry embossed it using the Birthday Background Stencil. I die cut all three of the frames from the Stitched Photo Frames die set.

With a little masking, I stamped the sentiment from the Cupcake Critters stamp set on to the two larger frames. I adhered the frames and colored die cuts using a mix of foam tape and liquid adhesive to be able to layer the images and add some dimension. As usual I finished of the card with lots of jewels.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope that you were inspired to create something! Make sure to tag me @everydayengineered and @prettypinkposh on Instagram and join the Facebook group so that we can see what you have created!

National Coffee Day | Honey Bee Stamps

You really thought I could let “National Coffee Day” go buy without making a coffee themed card! I’m all for made up holidays, esp ones that involve coffee! Be sure to head over the the Coffee Loving Card Makers Blog for more inspiration!

I used one of my favorite coffee stamp from Honey Bee Stamps, Treat Yo Self to create this cozy fall themed coffee card.

To create this card, I started by stamping three of the coffee mug images from the Treat Yo Self using black ink on to heavy weight card stock. I colored the images using copic marker and die cut them with the coordinating dies. I stamped a sentiment from the same stamp set onto pink card stock and cut it using the coordinating die cut.

Next I created the background using the Sweet Stacks Rectangle Dies, along with the Gingham Galore : Fall paper pad and the Cable Knit Sweater stencil. I inked up the stencil using Tumbled Glass and Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Inks along with white pigment ink. After the inked panel dried, I added the colored die cuts using foam tape, and finished off with some jewels.

I hope that this inspires you to create something crafty at the end of your day! If you do, and share on Instagram, be sure to tag me (@everydayengineered) and Honey Bee Stamps (@honeybeestamps)! We love to see what you create! 

Happy Crafting!
