Pretty Pink Posh

Baby Shaker Card | Pretty Pink Posh

Happy Friday Crafty Friends! I hope that you had a great week! I haven’t had a chance to craft in a few days (but I did make a Cricut project, you can see it here!), but I am working on getting chores done, so I can escape to the craft room during the weekend! In the meanwhile, I’m going to share a CAS baby card that I made a while back and totally forgot to share!

One of my favorite things to do these days is customize my cards and gifts! This card was for my cookie besties baby, Paul! Click here to see the gift that went with the card!

To create this card, I started by stamping 3 of the smaller images from the Pretty Pink Posh Baby Stamp Set. I colored them using copic makers and die cut it using the coordinating die. Next, I die cut the word “baby” using the Baby Script Die from light blue card stock, 3 times and stacked them, to match copic coloring.

To create the shaker, I die cut the name “Paul” using the Lawn Fawn Henry’s ABCs, from an A2 card front and backed it with some acetate an added the center piece of the “A”. For the back of the shaker I added a little ink blending with green, blue and purple. It’s hard see in the picture as I ended up overfilling my shaker pocket!

After I was done ink blending, I added foam tape to create the shaker, filled it with glitter and star sequins, and closed it off with the ink blended panel.

I finished off the card by adding the stacked word die cut, along with my colored die cut images.

Thanks for following along! I really hope this inspires you to create something new or attempt something you have been avoiding!

Newton’s Nook Designs – DAY 4 – Never Enough Cats + coordinating Dies

Happy Thursday! It’s the last day of reveal week over at Newton’s Nook Designs and I’m so excited to share a ton of inspiration with you this week! Today we are showcasing the Never enough Cats stamp set along with the coordinating Dies. Here’s how I was inspired!

Sharing a card today using my new favorite technique, partial die cutting! To create this card, I started by stamping the large image from the Never Enough Cats stamp set onto the center of an A2 card front. Use a heavier card stock to avoid color bleeding though. I colored my image using shades of brown – grey paints, but you can use what ever coloring medium you are comfortable with.

Once the paint dried, I used the coordinating die to cut only half of the image, by covering only half the die in my sandwich for the die cutting machine. Next I a paper trimmer to cut off the excess paper to allow the cut out shape to show clearly.

Lastly, I finished off the card by adding a strip of pattern paper behind the image to allow it pop a bit more, and stamped a sentiment with black ink on to it.

Happy Wednesday! It’s the first reveal week of 2023 over at Newton’s Nook Designs and I’m so excited to share a ton of inspiration with you this week! Today we are showcasing the Never enough Dogs stamp set along with the coordinating Dies. Here’s how I was inspired!

Y’all I finally made a card for this release! I started to create this card by stamping the large image from the Never Ending Dogs stamp set. I colored it in using a large selection of grey and brown copic markers, I tried to alternate the colors so that all the dogs don’t just blend into one big blob! After I was done coloring I die cut it using the coordinating die.

I was struggling with a layout, and then came across the current Inky Paws Challenge and used their sketch as inspiration. I trimmed down one sheet of pattern paper from the Love & Woofs paper pad and added it to the A2 sized white card front. next I cut a banner from pattern paper using a banner die cut from the Frames & Flags Die Set and one from coordinating plain card stock. I stamped and embossed a sentiment on to the second banner, and added both of them to the card front and finally added the colored image using some foam tape.

Newton’s Nook Designs – DAY 1 – Puppy Heart + coordinating Dies, Love & Woofs Paper Pad and Love & Chocolate Paper Pad

Happy Monday! It’s the first reveal week of 2023 over at Newton’s Nook Designs and I’m so excited to share a ton of inspiration with you this week! Today we are showcasing the Puppy Heart stamp set along with the coordinating Dies, and a new paper pads, Love & Woofs and Love & Chocolate. Here’s how I was inspired!

I started by stamping the image from the Puppy Heart stamp set onto white cardstock and coloring it with copic markers, and die cutting it using the coordinating die. Lastly, I stamped a sentiment into the heart.

Instead of creating another card, I decided to instead make a book mark using the Bookmark Die Set and a sheet of pattern paper from the new Love & Chocolate paper pad. I also used the paw die cut from the Bookmark Die Set and cut a few from coordinating plain cardstock to add to the background.

Finally, I finished off the bookmark by adding a ribbon and the colored image to the bookmark.

Little Blue Truck’s Christmas | Newton’s Nook Designs

Happy Monday! I can’t believe it’s winter break already! I clearly got nothing done as it’s been one thing after the next, and being sick on top of it all, its been a LONG winter, I am sooo ready to get past this chapter of life LOL.

Being sick means staying home as lot, resulting in reading A LOT! I might come on here sometime to share my 2022 reads, I have big plans to finish 3 books in the next 2 weeks to meet my year goal, let’s see how that goes! But what I have been reading a lot of it the little blue truck and his adventures! My little one loves anything that moves, so this card is inspired by his antics!

To create this card, I started by stamping and coloring the image of the truck from the Holiday Haul Stamp Set. As I mentioned my coloring was inspired by the “Little Blue Truck”, once I was done coloring, I die cut it using the coordinating Holiday Haul Die Set. The copic colors I used are shown below.

I created the background of the card, with multiple layers of ink blenidng and stenciling! For the first later, I used shades of grey-blue to create a winter evening sky, next I ink blended the line of trees using the Christmas Tree Line Stencil, along with 2 shades of green ink and brown for the stumps. My last layer was done using the Petite Snow Stencil, and texture paste.

Only after the white texture paste dried, did I notice that I hadn’t stamped a sentiment nor left space for one! So I quickly cut a hill from some scrap paper, inked it up lightly with some grey ink, and stamped a sentiment from the Heartfelt Holidays Stamp Set. Once the texture paste dried, I finished off the card by adding the sentiment strip and the colored image of the truck.

Warm Wintery Birthday Wishes

Happy Tuesday! Hope that y’all are having a great start to the week! It’s a busy week here in real life as its the last week of school, so trying to get as much done in my kid free time!

I’m up on the Newton’s Nook Blog today sharing a birthday card inspired by the cold weather we have had recently!

To create this card, I started by playing around with the coffee mug images from the Cup of Cocoa Stamp Set, lining them up along the longer side of an A2 card. Since was going to do partial die cutting, I needed space them well to be able to die cut with space in-between. Once stamped I colored them using copic markers, shown below.

After coloring, I used the coordinating dies to partially die cut all of the images, and then trimmed off the rest of the paper using a craft knife. Next I stamped a sentiment from the Time For Coffee Stamp Set on the front of the card.

As this was a partial die cut card, you can see to into the card, so I decided to add some pattern paper from the Canine Christmas Paper Pad along with stamping a coordinating sentiment inside the card, from the same Time For Coffee Stamp Set.

Thanks for stopping by today! 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!

For today’s hop I created this fun see though card using acetate! This card actually ended up the way I imagined in my head!

To create it, I started by stenciling the Snowfall Stencil with texture paste on to a sheet of acetate, once it dried a trimmed it down to an A2 card front.

 While the stenciled acetate was drying, I colored from the Newton’s Gift using copic marker, and die cut it using the coordinating die. I also embossed a sentiment from the same stamp set in white embossing powder. Next I die cut two stitched ovals using the Oval Frames Die Set from the Canine Christmas Paper Pad.

 To finish the card, I trimmed down a sheet of light blue paper to an A2 size, and scored it 1/4 of an inch on the long edge and used double sided tape the acetate sheet to create the card front. I added the ovals die cuts to the acetate sheet, and then the colored die cut image. Lastly I finished the card off by stamping a sentiment from the Heartfelt Holidays.
