Newton’s Nook Designs October Release – Day 2 – Holiday Home & Christmas Cactus + coordinating Dies

Happy Tuesday! 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 Holiday Home & Christmas Cactus stamp sets along with their coordinating Dies! Here’s how I was inspired!

Y’all know that I love floral stamps, so I’m so excited to add the new Christmas Cactus stamp set to my collection!

For my first card, I stamped and colored the image from the Christmas Cactus stamp set twice using copic markers and die cut them using the coordinating dies.

Next I inked up an A2 piece of card stock along the edges with pink ink, leaving a little white space in the middle. I stamped the sentiment from the same Christmas Cactus stamp set, and added the colored images around it using foam tape and finished off with some jewels.

For my second card using the Holiday Home stamp set, I started by stamping the largest image in the set, coloring with copic markers, and die cutting using the coordinating die.

Next I created the shaker by stamping a sentiment from the same, Holiday Home stamp set on to the card base. Then I embossed an A2 piece of card stock using the Snowfall Stencil, and cut the shaker window using the largest window die cut from the Snow Globe Shaker Die Set. I backed the shaker front with acetate, added foam tape and filled it with shaker bit before adding it to the card base. Lastly I added the colored image next to the shaker window.

Vintage Holidays Sneak Peak Day 1 | Honey Bee Stamps

Happy Monday (again)! I unfortunately messed up calendar, so rushing to finish my sneak peak cards! Today I’m sneak peaking the new Snow Family Like Ours Stamps & Dies, Pierced Fancy Flakes A2 Cover Plate Die and Fancy Flakes A2 Cover Plate Die.

To create this card, I started by stamping, coloring with copic markers and die cutting four of the snow people from the Snow Family Like Ours Stamp Set. Next I embossed a sentiment in white onto some black card stock.

Next I created the background by die cutting and layering the Pierced Fancy Flakes A2 Cover Plate Die and Fancy Flakes A2 Cover Plate Die. I backed it with an A2 piece of silver card stock, and added the snow people with foam tape.

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.

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!
