Halloween Inspiration Week – Day 4 | Newton’s Nook Designs

This week Newton’s Nook Designs is getting ready for Halloween with a fun Inspiration week! All week the NND Design Team will be sharing inspiration using some of their favorite Halloween products to get you in the mood for tricks and treats! Check out what I created today and don’t forget to check the NND Blog each day this week for more fun inspiration!

For my card, I decided to use the Trick or Treat Kittens stamp set, cause who can resist this cute images!

I started by stamping the two images from the Trick or Treat Kittens stamp set on to heavy weight card stock using copic friendly ink and colored them in using copic markers, and die cut them using the coordinating dies.

Copic Combo : N0, C1, 3, 5, 7; E15, 37; YR00; Y15, 17; V15, 17; B00, 02; YG06, 23

Next I created the inked background using distress oxide ink (chipped sapphire, seedless preserves, ripe persimmon, and wild honey). Then I splattered it with water, black and white paint for some added depth.

Copic Combo : 0; N0; C5, 7; YR04, 14, 15; Y15, 17; YG06, 23; BV04, 08; E57, 59

Once I went to assemble the card, I found that the colored images were getting lost on the inked background, so I die cut stitched squares using the Slimline Frames and Windows Die Set and used them as a background instead. I almost embossed a sentiment from the same Trick or Treat Kittens stamp set on to the third square. I added the squares to the inked background and finished off the card with some jewels to match the ink colors.

Simon Says Stamp – Newton’s Nook Designs STAMPtember® 2021 Exclusive Collaboration

Hi Crafty Friends! I’m super excited to share today’s STAMPtember exclusive collaboration with Newton’s Nook Designs! The Talk Turkey is a fun stamp set that’s perfect not only for thanksgiving cards, it can be used for other projects like name card for your table setting or party favor tags!

I decided to make a ‘simple’ card today, using the loose or messy watercolor technique!

I started by stamping the smaller images from the Talk Turkey stamp set on to water color paper using versafine onyx ink. Then I used Koi Watercolors to color in the images in a messy way!

While the background was drying, I used copic markers to color in Newton, dressed as a turkey! Since this set doesn’t have dies, I fussy cut the images. I stamped a sentiment from the same Talk Turkey stamp set on to a banner cut using yellow cardstock and Newton’s Nook Designs Frames and Flags Die Set.

Once the watercolored background dried, I die cut it using the large rectangle die cut from Newton’s Nook Designs Frames and Flags Die Set. I adhered it to a Kraft A2 card and added the sentiment banner and colored image using some foam tape. Finally I added some jewels to finish off the card!

Copic Combo : N0, 6; C1, 3, 5, 7; R24, 27, 29; YR00; YR16, 18; Y15, 17; E 15, 37

I hope you like this adorable set and the card I’ve made, its my first STAMPtember card so I’m super excited! Thanks so much for stopping by today and if you like this set, grab it before it sells out! As it’s a STAMPtember exclusive and won’t be restocked!

Rainbow Monsters | Pretty Pink Posh

Happy Saturday! I usually avoid blogging/social media on weekends, but I really wanted to share this card I made with Pretty Pink Posh’s Halloween release before the Fall release comes out tomorrow! I love ALL the products in the new release and honestly can’t help but want them ALL!

As you probably know, I’m not big on Halloween, but these monsters caught my eye as I can use them for fun birthday cards for little boys (and girls)!

To create this card, I started by stamping ALL the image from the Monster Hugs stamp set and colored them in using copic markers. Color combos listed below. Next I cut them out using the coordinating dies.

I couldn’t decide which monster images NOT to use, so I decided to make a square card using them ALL! I started by die cutting the largest stitched square from Lawn Fawn’s Large Stitched Squares Die Set. I attached the die cut square to the Grid Stencil and inked it up to create a diagonal rainbow using distress oxide inks. I used the following colors : Spun Sugar, Abandoned Coral, Dried Marigold, Cracked Pistachio, Tumbled Glass, and Shaded Lilac.

Once the ink dried, I stamped the sentiment in the middle of the cardbase, and added the colored monsters in the ‘squares’ with foam tape. Lastly I added the card front to a Kraft notecard.

Copic Combos : N0; BG 10, 11, 13; YG 00, 01, 03; RV 21, 23, 25; Y02, 11; YR 14, 16, Y35

Fall Leaves Window Card | Newton’s Nook Designs

Happy Friday! This “short” week might have flown by, but man was it busy and stressful. Life in a pandemic, right! So glad that I have my hobby to keep me sane, and as a plus I get to work with some great companies that are super understanding of my needs and changes in schedules!

Enough about that, let’s get to the reason y’all are here! Sharing a fun window card today using a collection of old and new stamps from Newton’s Nook Designs.

To create this card, I started with a A2 top folding and die cut a circle (using the largest stitched circle from the circle frames die set) to create the window. Next I created the background or inside of the card, using the Fall Rounabout Stamp. I lined it up in my MISTI and stamped it using some brown dye ink.

Now to add details and a sentiment to the front of the card, I die cut the stitched pumpkins and leaf from the Fall Friends Die Set multiple times from green, orange and yellow cardstock. I added highlights to the die cuts using copic markers. For the sentiment I die cut the longest banner from the Banners Trio Die Set and stamped a sentiment from the Fall Rounabout Stamp on to the banner. I also trimmed off the pennant on one side of the banner as it was too long.

To finish off the card, I adhered the banner across the window, aded a few pumpkins to hide the trimmed side of the banner, and arranged the rest around the window, layering some of them.

I hope this card inspires you to create something for fall! 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!

Circle Thanks Card | Honey Bee Stamps

Happy Mon- oh wait it’s Wednesday! Thats what happens when its a long weekend + you take extra time off to sneak in one last summer vacation before its all things Fall!

Sharing a really easy card today, one that’s a great way to start transitioning into fall colors!

To create this card, I started by adhering the solid layer of the Scattered Leaves Background Stencil to some Bristol Smooth Cardstock. I inked it up with Distress Oxide Ink in a Twisted Citron, Squeezed Lemon and Ripe Persimmon, and added the second layer of the stencil to add the details using white pigment ink. This toned down the bright colors and made it more muted for Fall!

To finish off the card, I die cut two circles using the largest of the circles from the new Sweet Stacks Circle dies, to create the base and used the next one to cut the inked panel. I stacked the sentiment die “thanks” using golden glitter card stock as the final layer to finish off the card.

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!

Love you S’more | Coffee Loving Cardmakers

Happy Friday! Welcome back for my last caffeinated card as guest designer on the Coffee Loving Papercrafters Blog! It’s been a wild month for so, I’m so glad that I got to craft as a distraction! As much as I love summer, I am ready for all things FALL! It’s already looking like fall in my craftroom, as you can tell from today’s card, along with the one that I shared last week!

Copic Combos : 0, N0; BG 10, 11, 13; YR 14, 15, 12; E 57, 37, 15, 13

For today’s card, I started by stamping ALL the images from Honey Bee Stamps Love you S’more stamp set. I colored them using copic markers (listed above) and die cut them using the coordinating dies.

Then I created the background for the images to pop on, using some Gina K Blue Lagoon Ink and Newton Nook Designs Mug Stencil. Alternating between foam tape and glue, I adhered the colored images to the card front. I created the sentiment using the new Bitty Buzzwords Fall Diecuts along with the Bitty Buzzwords Fall Stamp set from Honey Bee Stamps latest release. I stacked the word die cut “latte” three times using kraft paper, and embossed and cut off the “lets” from the “let’s get together” on a strip of brown cardstock. Lastly I added some jewels to finish off the card.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Have a great weekend and I hope you get some crafty time! Thank you Amy for this lovely opportunity!

Paw-tumn is Paw-esome! | Newton’s Nook Designs

Happy Tuesday! Does it feel like Fall where you live? We are still enjoying the last days of summer, sadly there’s smoke floating around making it hazy outsides on certain days. Thankfully I have my crafty supplies to keep me busy when we can’t be outside!

Copic Marker Combos :

Today I created a fall themed card using mixing and matching some old and new products from Newtons Nook Designs. I started my stamping and coloring the large image from the Paw-tumn Newton stamp set, and cutting it out using the coordinating dies.

Next, I created the background by stamping the Heathfelt Fall image slightly off set on to a piece of Kraft paper (which was trimmed down to be a little smaller than an A2 card panel). I stamped the sentiment from the Paw-tumn Newton stamp set and embossed it in gold. Lastly I added a few strips of colored card stock that match the coloring to add a pop of color, along with some jewels to match.

I hope this card inspires you to create something for fall! 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!

Newton’s Nook Designs August Release – Day 4 – Signs of Fall + Coordinating Dies and Heartfelt Fall

Welcome back for the last day of reveal week over at Newton’s Nook Designs and I hope that y’all enjoyed all the inspiration I got to share with you this week! Today we are showcasing the Signs of Fall and coordinating dies, along with the Heartfelt Fall stamp set (that works with the Heart Frames & Banner Trio Dies). Here’s how I was inspired!

I didn’t want to take away from the beauty of today’s stamp set, so I added more to the background than layering on top!

For my first card, I started by stamping the Signs of Fall image onto Kraft paper and coloring with alcohol markers, and I cut it out using the coordinating dies.

Next I created the scene, starting with a sunset inked background, layered with some white pigment ink on the Petite Clouds stencil, once it dried, I layered a picket fence die cut, and some grass, also inked up, and finally added the Signs of Fall colored imaged with a “thank you” sentiment stamped and embossed on it.

For my second card, I started by creating a similar inked background to my card from Day 2 of Reveals, and added splatters of water and gold paint. While it dried I stamped and embossed the image from the Heartfelt Fall stamp set in gold onto vellum. Then I die cut it using the largest scallop heart from the Heart Frames Die Set. For the sentiment I die cut a banner using the Banner Trio Die Set and embossed the sentiment using white embossing powder. I finished off the card by adding some jewels.

Fall Rainbow | Honeybee Stamps

Hi! Back again sharing a simple rainbow card, but with fall tones instead of bright! I don’t know if you have noticed or not, but Fall is one of my favorite seasons to craft for!

To create this card, I started by cutting down a A2 size card front from Bristol Smooth Cardstock. Next I stamped and embossed (in gold) the Harvest Blooms Background. While heat setting it, the paper warped a tad bit, so I ran it though my die cutting machine to flatten it out.

Next I inked it up in rainbow order using muted colors, perfect for fall! I finished off with some jewels and a stacked die cut “hello” from the Darling Dahlias die cuts.

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!
