Deck the Halls with Inky Paws Blog Hop | Newton’s Nook Designs

Today is the Newton’s Nook Designs Deck the Halls with Inky Paws Blog Hop!  You should have arrived here from my teamie, Maria Russell‘s blog.  If not, you’ll want to start at the beginning of the hop which is the Newton’s Nook Designs Blog.

I created today’s card using the Poinsettia Blooms stamp set. They are my current floral obsession!

I started by stamping (and leaving the stamp in my stamp positioner) the largest image from the Poinsettia Blooms stamp set with a light copic friendly ink. I colored it using the following copic markers :

reds : R29, 39, 59, 89
yellow : Y15, 17
greens : [G28, 29] [G21, 24]

After I was done coloring I placed the image back in the stamp positioner and embossed it using gold embossing powder and fussy cut it out.

Using a stitched die cut edge, I cut out little strips from the Meowy Christmas Paper Pad, and added them in a woven pattern on a A2 card front that I dry embossed using the Snowfall Stencil. After I embossed I realized I cannot add a sentiment on the card front directly, so instead I embossed it in gold on to black card stock and and fussy cut around it.

As always I finished off the card using some jewels.

Merry Penguin Pals | Pretty Pink Posh

Happy last day of November! I know, right? I know that this year has been crazy busy, but November literally passed by in a blink! I managed to color these cute penguins a while back, and finally got a chance to create the card! I actually recreated my own card from earlier in the year! Check it out here.

To create this card, I started by stamping all the penguins from the Penguin Pals stamp set along with all the “accessories”. I colored them using copic markers. The color combos I used are shared at the end of the post. And then die cut them using the coordinating dies.

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

With a little masking, I stamped the sentiment “merry wishes” 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. I finished off the card with Winter Wonders Clay Confetti and added it to a light blue card base.

Make sure to tag me @everydayengineered and @prettypinkposh on Instagram and join the Facebook group so that we can see what you have created!

Happy Thanksgiving | Honey Bee Stamps

Woah! What a day it’s been, long pre-thanksgiving to-do list, kid 1 caught the sniffles and I committed to a baking job, AND I have a card project due tonight. Why I ask, why do I do this to myself LOL. It’s okay, I have a to-do list, I’m not making a turkey, so I have a ton of time till 1PM tomorrow. Make a plan, stick to it, and things will get done. I digress. Let’s get to today’s card so I can move on to the next thing.

After a long 18-ish months, its been more than heartwarming to be able to gather, so my card to dedicated to all those who can finally travel, and create new memories cause we are always better together!

To create this card I stamped, and colored many of the images from the Better Together stamp set. I used copics, and then die cut them using the coordinating dies. I also stamped and embossed the sentiment on to black card stock using gold embossing powder and die cut it using the coordinating die.

Next I inked up a piece of card stock slightly larger than an A2 size with distress inks (abandoned coral, dried marigold, crushed olive and salvage patina). I sprayed it with water and then splattered some gold paint on it. Once it dried I die cut it using the Autumn Splendor Cover Plate.

I added the die cut panel to a Kraft card base and then added the colored images along with the sentiment and as always finished off with some jewels.

Happy Thanksgiving crafty friends!

Poisettia CAS card | Newton’s Nook

Happy Tuesday y’all! I hope that you’re week is off to a great start, if not, at least it ends tomorrow! I’m super excited about the weekend, first time not cooking/hosting, so looking forward to reading, crafting and catching up of watching TV/movies! I may pack a puzzle or two also!

If you are crafting this weekend, here’s some holiday card inspiration for you using my favorite holiday stamp, poinsettias!

To create this card, I started by stamping and coloring one of the images from the Poinsettia Blooms Stamp Set with copic markers. I don’t have the Poinsettia Blooms Die Set, so I fussy cut the images.

Next I diecut a circle using the Circle Frames Die Set and embossed the ‘season greetings’ sentiment onto it using gold embossing powder. I adhered the circle to an A2 size card front dry embossed using the Holiday Foliage Stencil.

I finished off the card by adhering the colored images using foam tape to frame the sentiment and added some jewels.

I hope these cards inspire 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!

Happy crafting!

Thanks a Latte (in the Fall) | Honey Bee Stamps

Two posts in one day! Woah what! After my cleaning session, I had a few minutes before the dishwasher and dryer were done, and with two kids napping, I figured I’d get a little crafty time in and finished another card to sneak into the Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.

For this card, I paired some fall and winter products from Honey Bee Stamps cause I am not yet ready to let go of fall! I also finally attempted and successfully created a full panel shaker card!

To create this card, I started by created the shaker using this method and the Autumn Splendor Cover Plate and added it to a top folding A2 card front.

Next I created the mugs using the Mugs and Kisses die set along with the Darling Dahlias stamp set. I colored in the flowers with copics and then used a copic BG11 to color around it. I stamped the latte art from the Hug in a Mug stamp set and ink blended over it with some brown distress ink and die cut it using the coordinating die.

Lastly I built the sentiment with the “thanks a” from the Hug in a Mug stamp set and the “latte” from the Bitty Buzzwords: Fall die set cut from matte gold paper.

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! Also, make sure to head over to the Coffee Lovers Blog to find out how you can link up your card to play along! There are a TON of prizes and it ends tonight!

Coffee Loving Cardmakers Fall/Winter Blog Hop | Newton’s Nook Designs

Happy Friday y’all! It’s been a long but thankfully productive week! Just finished a baking session and thought that I would take a break and share a pair for card before starting a cleaning session!

It’s the last day of the Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop, and Newton’s Nook Designs is having a sale, so I thought I’d share some inspiration using the new stamp from their November release that are also included in the sale!

I made a pair of cards using my new favorite coffee products (including the new Coffee House Stories Paper Pad!) from Newton’s Nook Designs.

For my first card, I started by stamping and coloring some of the images from the Time For Coffee stamp set using copic markers and die cut them using the coordinating Time For Coffee Die Set. I stamped and embossed a sentiment from the same stamp set on to a stitched banner diecut from the Bookmark Die Set.

I assembled the card on a A2 Kraft card base, firstly adding two strips of pattern paper from the Coffee House Stories Paper Pad. Next I added the colored images layered with the sentiment banner and finished off with some jewels as always!

For the second card, I used the same Time For Coffee stamp set, this time coloring and die cutting some of the other images and coloring them with copic markers. This time I stamped and embossed the sentiment on a stitched circle die cut from vellum, I cut using the Circle Frames Die Set

I assembled this card on a A2 Kraft card base also, starting with two strips of pattern paper from the Coffee House Stories Paper Pad. Next I added the colored images layered with the vellum circle and finished off with some jewels as always!

Coffee and Friends | Pawsome Stamps

Happy Thursday! It’s been a busy day, and I still have a ton of baking to get done to done, but I needed to take a minute so I finished a card as nap times aligned! And since we still have a few more limits, lets see if I can get this on the blog! I created a coffee card for the Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!

I’ve recently been creating card with colored pieces that I stash away! So today’s card uses this fun coffee mugs from Pawsome Stamps Coffee Besties Stamp Set.

Since the images where already stamped, colored and fussy cut, it only took a few minutes to put the card together. I started by trimming down a sheet of pattern paper to an A2 size and die cut a window in it using the Window Frames Die from Pretty Pink Posh. I adhered the die cut card from to an Kraft card base.

I stamped a sentiment from the Coffee Besties Stamp Set in the windows and added the coffee mugs to the card using some foam tape. And as always I finished off the card with some confetti.

Hope you enjoyed this coffee theme card today! Make sure you head over to the Coffee Lovers Blog to find out how you can link up your card to play along! There are a TON of prizes, including one from Pawsome Stamps.

Newton’s Nook Designs November Release – DAY 3 – Snow Angel Newton & Snow Angel Puppy + Coordinating Dies, Roll with It 

Happy Wednesday! It’s the last day of reveals over at Newton’s Nook Designs and I’m so excited for all the inspiration I got to share with you! Today’s products are all about SNOW! Today we are showcasing the Snow Angel Newton & Snow Angel Puppy + Coordinating Dies, and Roll with It mini stamp set! Here’s how I was inspired!

All three of today’s cards are made using some fun techniques that I finally tried and I am so happy that I did!

For my first card, I used the Roll with It stamp set to create a simpler card that can easily be mass produced. To create the card I started by ink blending a sheet of blue cardstock to create an ombre look, and layered it with deco foil paste over the Snowfall Stencil and let it dry overnight. After it dried, I ran it through my laminator layered with a sheet of flock.

While the deco foil paste dried, I stamped the Roll with It stamp on to a die cut I cut using the Snow Globe Shaker Die Set, and quickly colored it using copic markers. Once the background was ready, I added the sentiment along with trimmed banners cut using the Banner Trio Die Set to create a faux belly band look.

For my second card, I used a wobbler for the first time! To create this card, I started by stenciling the Petite Snow Stencil on to a sheet of pattern paper from the Meowy Christmas Paper Pad with texture paste. While it dried, I stamped and colored the puppy image from the Snow Angel Puppy stamp set, and die cut it using the coordinating die. I also stamped and embossed a sentiment from the same stamp set onto a banner die cut using the Banner Trio Die Set.

Once the card background dried, I added the puppy using a wobbler and the sentiment using some foam tape to finish off the card.

For my last card, I created my first spinner card! The image from the Snow Angel Newton is almost symmetrical so it worked out well for a spinner card!

To create this card I started by stamping and coloring the image of Newton from the Snow Angel Newton stamp set twice and die cut them using the coordinating die. I glued the two images together with some fishing wire between them. Next I created the card base. I die cut a circle from a piece of A2 sized blue card stock big enough to fit the colored image using a die from the Circle Frames Die Set and embossed the piece with the Snowfall Stencil to add some dimension. I die cut the same circle from a top folding card base, and added the textured card stock with the fish wire sandwiched between the two. I finished off the card by stamping the sentiment hidden behind the colored spinning image.
