Sandy Scene | Newton’s Nook Designs

Happy Tuesday y’all! This card is 100% inspired by my sandy vacations plans! It’s been a while since we’ve been to the beach and seeing as summer decided to ditch us here in the PNW, we are 100% ready for some, well A LOT of sun and sand! Maybe a reading a few books too!

To create this card, I started by stamping and coloring the little kitten in the sand castle from the Kitten Beach stamp set with copic markers (sand castle : E42, E43; Kitten : C7, 5, 3; E00, 000; shell : E11, 13) and die cut it using the coordinating Kitten Beach Die Set.

Next I created the background, starting with the “sky” by inking up a piece of A2 card stock using distress oxide ink in salvage patina and tumbled glass. Next I inked up the (new) Palm Tree Stencil about an inch from the bottom using more distress oxide inks (mowed lawn, frayed burlap, and walnut stain).

Last part of the background was to add the Petite Clouds Stencil using some white texture paste. While that dried, I inked up a piece of scrap paper with frayed burlap and walnut stain distress oxide and splatted it with some ground espresso. Once it dried I die cut it with a die similar to the Sea Borders Die Set, making sure it was a bit over 1 inch in width so that it would match up with my palm trees.

Lastly to finish off the card, I stamped and embossed a sentiment in white on to a banner die cut from the Frames & Flags Die Set using black card stock.

Happy Thursday! Today is the last day of the June reveal week over at Newton’s Nook Designs! We are showcasing the Newton’s Kite stamp set along with its coordinating dies.

Today’s stamp set is another one that it perfect for an interactive card! I used a pull tab mechanism for mine, messed it up a bit, but the card still looks good!

To create this card, I started by stamping and coloring Newton from Newton’s Kite stamp set with some alcohol markers, and die cut using the coordinating dies, and setting it aside to create the scene.

Similar to my interactive card from yesterday, I used a grass border die and green ink to create a grassy border. Next I inked up my card front using the Petite Clouds Stencil and the Tree Line Stencil, I stamped a sentiment and created the (not so straight!) pull tab. I finished off the card by adding the colored image using some foam tape and snipping off the kite and adding a little twine!

Newton’s Nook Designs June Release – Day 3 – Dog Park + coordinating dies | Newton’s Nook Designs

Happy Wednesday! Hope your week is going well and if not, well the weekend is just around the corner! Today I’m sharing another stamp set as part of the June reveal week over at Newton’s Nook Designs! Today we are showcasing the Dog Park stamp set along with its coordinating dies.

I thought that this set was perfect to make an interactive card! To create it, I started by stamping and coloring the dog, birthday hat and ball from the Dog Park stamp set, using alcohol markers. I die cut them using the coordinating dies and set them aside while I created the scene.

I inked up a scrap piece of paper with some green ink, and die cut it with a grass edge die, I stamp part of my sentiment on to it. Next I inked up my card from with the Petite Clouds Stencil, stamped the rest of the sentiment and created the interactive part of the card. I added the colored elements along with the grass border to finish of the card!

Newton’s Nook Designs June Release – Day 2 – Flamingo Oval  | Newton’s Nook Designs

Happy Tuesday! Hope y’all had a great start to the week! Welcome to the second day of June reveal week over at Newton’s Nook Designs! I am so excited to be here sharing a whole bunch of fun products! Today we are showcasing the Flamingo Oval stamp set that works with the previously release Oval Frame Die Set.

This release is perfect for summer themed cards and what says summer more than a flamingo! I love the pun-ny sentiments on todays stamp set and how well they pair with the Summer Time paper pad.

For my first card today I started by stamping and coloring the image from the Flamingo Oval stamp set using alcohol markers. Then I die cut it using a scalloped oval die cut from the Oval Frame Die Set. I also die cut two stitched ovals from vellum, one to add to the back of the colored image, and one to stamp and emboss a sentiment on to.

I finished off the card by stacking the die cut ovals, and adding to a sheet of pattern paper from the Summer Time paper pad.

While trying to finish my first card I stamped the sentiment you see here on the second card, but it covered too much of the colored flamingos, so I didn’t use it there but also didn’t want to throw it out, so I created this second card!

I used one sheet of pattern paper from the Summer Time paper pad cut in up and flipped it over for a layered too. I wrapped a piece of twine around it before adding the sentiment using come foam tape.

For my second card, I went for a CAS card using the Palm Tree Stencil. I started by masking off the bottom two thirds of the card front and inking up the rest with light blue ink. Next I added the palm tree layers using 2 shade of brown and a green ink.

Divided Shaker Card (plus a bonus card!) | Honey Bee Stamps

Hello crafty friends! I hope that you are having a great start to the week! If not, make sure to sneak in some crafty time! Today I’m up on the ScrapbookPal Blog sharing a fun pair of rainbow card, cause when in doubt, rainbow it! I love 2 for 1 cards as extras are always fun!

To create this card :

I started by inking up the first layer (small balloons) of the Layering Balloons Stencil from Honey Bee Stamps using distress oxides ink in Ripe Persimmon, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, Salty Ocean and Wilted Violet

Next used the second layer (large balloons) the Layering Balloons Stencil and inked it up with the brushes I used for the first layer without actually inking up the blending brushes for a lighter shade of the same color. 

Remove the stencil to reveal the pattern! 

Next I die cut the inked background using the Happy Happy Happy cover plate. Make sure to save the die cut letters for a second card.

Next I added acetate to the back of the card front die cut, and glued in the centers of the “P” and “A”.

I added foam tape around the back of the card front, and also between the letters to create “pockets” for the different color sequins!

Next I lined up the die cut letters back into the cover die so that it would be easier to add them to a card front. I added iquid adhesive to the back and adhered them to the card front.

Next I used the Happy Happy Happy stamp set and coordinating die set to create a few sentiments to the card fronts, adding them using foam tape.

Thanks for following along today! I hope that this card inspires you to create something! 

Happy Crafting!

Strawberry Inspired Birthday Shaker Card | Ellen Hutson

Hi crafty friends! Hope that y’all had a great long weekend! Life has been very real these past few weeks, so unfortunately blogging took a back seat. As I get used to my new schedule I have high hopes being more regular here! I was on the Ellen Hutson Blog last week and it was so exciting to be on there as I have been a fan of Ellen Hutson for years! Did you know that May is National Strawberry month? I didn’t, until Carly reached out to me about guest designing! I’m was over the moon, who wouldn’t be as Ellen Hutson is my favorite one stop shop for all things crafty, especially as they are just a drive away!

Let’s get to the card I’m shared on the Ellen Hutson Blog! I love shaker cards, they aren’t as complicated as they look, especially when you use a frame die cut! I used the colors of a strawberry as my starting point for this card. I choose the following distress oxide inks for my blend.

I used Abandoned Coral, Candied Apple, Twisted Citron, and Mowed Lawn, along with Black Soot and Gansai Tambi White paint for the splatters.

Ink splatters are a great way to hide imperfections in the ink blending, and they worked well with my strawberry theme. If using multiple colors of splatters, let each one dry before adding the next layer to avoid muddy colors.

Once my ink splatters dried, I die cut the ink blended sheet using the Pretty Pink Posh Birthday Frame Die. I wanted to add something to the back of the shaker, and the cake from the Essentials By Ellen’s Cake by Julie Ebersole fit in the frame perfectly with space for a sentiment.

I stamped the outline of the image using Versafine Ink (in Onyx Black) along with the sentiment. I recommend using a stamp positioner for this step as it makes lining up the solid stamp easier. For the solid images of the stamp, I used the same distress oxide inks as my ink blend, Abandoned Coral, Candied Apple, and Twisted Citron.

I finished off the card by creating a shaker using some liquid glue to adhere the die cut frame to the acetate, then added a thin pieces of foam tape to add dimension for the shaker. I created the shaker mix using matching colors from my sequin stash. I filled my shaker window, added the backing with the stamped image and sentiment and added it to a card front.

Thank you all for following along, I hope that you are inspired to create something, with strawberries, or not! If you do get crafty, please tag me @everydayengineered on Instagram, along with @ellenhutsonllc so that we can see what you have made!

And lastly, thank you to the Ellen Hutson team for this lovely opportunity!

Take care,
Farhana

Floral Thank You | Newton’s Nook Designs

Happy Tuesday! I know I keep saying I’ll be back to share more crafty inspiration with y’all but life keeps happening and I keep getting tied up with the most random things! But I’m here today, and we’ll see how things go tomorrow, LOL. I have decided to take it day by day in this busy season of life. Except for vacations, and weekends, I have those packed till like August LOL!

Okay, y’all are here for a card so let’s get to that! Seattle (and pretty much most of the NW) has had a super late start to spring, so I’ve just been making a ton of spring-y cards in hopes of manifesting it to come! I also purged some of my crafty supplies, and that revealed some older stamp sets that I figured I would ink up!

I love it when companies make their products coordinate! For this card, I stamped and colored the oval image from the Best Mom Oval Stamp Set, then restamped and embossed it with rose gold embossing powder. I die cut it using a scalloped from the Oval Frames Die Set, and added to a sheet of pattern paper from the Springtime Paper Pad trimmed down to an A2 size.

To add a little dimension to the card, I stamped and embossed (in the same rose gold) some of the butterflies from the Beautiful Wings Stamp Set on to vellum and fussy cut them. I added them to an oval die cut, also cut using the Oval Frames Die Set from a coordinating cardstock and embossed a sentiment from the Best Mom Oval Stamp Set on to it. I added the sentiment piece to the rest of the card using some foam tape. And as always finished off the card with some jewels.

Please make sure to stop by the Newton’s Nook Designs Blog for more inspiration and don’t forget to tag #NewtonsNook or #NewtonsNookDesign on Instagram to share what you created!

Happy crafting!

Therm O Web & Newton’s Nook Designs collaboration week

Good morning crafty friends! It’s been a minute since I have been on here! Took a break for Eid, and it ended up being long than expected! Excited to be back this week for the  Newton’s Nook Designs and Therm O Web collaboration week with fabulous inspiration week (check here for day 1 and day 2!)

All week long both design teams will be sharing ways to use Therm O Web products with Newton’s Nook Designs stamps! There are prizes too! Read all the way to the end of this post to find out how you can win!

I combined multiple Therm O Web products, along with some of my favorite Newton’s Nook Designs stamps and stencils to create these cards.

To create this card I started by inking up the first layer of Butterflies Stencil Set using distress oxide ink (I used saltwater taffy, dried marigold, twisted citron and tumbled glass). I used the detailed stencil from the set to add a layer of  Deco Foil Transfer Gel Duo. Once it dried, I ran it through my Minc Machine with a sheet of Deco Foil Flock Transfer Sheets (in Tuscan Gold).

I embossed a sentiment in gold embossing powder from the Heartfelt Butterflies stamp set on to a banner die cut from Banner Trio Die Set. I wanted to add a little more dimension to the card, so I embossed two of the butterfly images from the Monarchs on to vellum with gold embossing powder and fussy cut them, and adhered them to my card with a little foam tape. And as always, finished off my card with some jewels.

The products pair really well with previously released products, but also work perfectly for scrapbookers! I haven’t scrapbooked in years, but I thought the products work well for card making to! Here’s what I created!

I’m usually all about coloring and little details on my card, but for this pair of cards I really wanted to show case the pattern paper and created a pair of no coloring and almost no stamping cards!

I started by trimming down two sheets of paper from the A Cat’s Life Paper Pad and A Dog’s Life Paper Pad, and layering them to create the card front. Next I die the Cat Silhouettes and Dog Silhouettes Die Set from black card stock, along with two banners using the Banner Trio Die Set.
