Rainbow Blooms | Newton’s Nook Designs

Happy Tuesday! Hope y’all had a fun (and maybe crafty?) long weekend! I had a pretty productive and enjoyable one with my first post vaccine wedding and finally figuring out how to pressure wash the deck! Not much crafting happened, but thankfully I made this card ahead of time so I have something to share!

I’ve recently been adding to my distress oxide ink collection and decided to justify it by actually using them! For this card I used; festive berries, spiced marmalade, squeezed lemon, twisted citron, salty ocean and wilted violet. I started by first heat embossing the Heartfelt Blooms image 3 times on to Bristol Strathmore paper with white embossing powder. Then I ink blended using the colors mentioned in rainbow order. I buffed the images before die cutting to allow the white embossing to pop!

Next I heat embossed (in white) sentiments from the Mom and Dad and Birthday Roundabout stamp set on to banners die cut from black card stock using Banner Trio Die Set. I trimmed them a little to offset them on the card front that I cut using the scalloped rectangle from the Slimline Frames and Portholes Die Set. Lastly I added a few jewels matching the inked background.

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

CAS birthday card | Honey Bee Stamps

Happy Wednesday! Tomorrow is Eid, so I got TONS to do popping in with a quick birthday card with minimum coloring!

To create this card, I stared by die cutting an ombre purple sheet from the Playful Pastels paper pad with the Quatrefoil A2 Cover Plate – Top. I adhered it to an A2 top folding notecard, added stacked diecuts from the Bitty Buzzwords die set, cut from black card stock. Lastly I accented the card with some floral images from the Fancy Frosting stamp set, that I colored but hadn’t previously used!

I’ve recently been loving making quick and easy CAS cards, I hope that you are enjoying them too!

Layers of Butterflies | Newton’s Nook Designs

Happy Tuesday! I’m finally sharing a NON Eid card! Don’t worry, there’s plenty of Eid inspiration over on my Instagram! Today’s card is using some of my favorite Newton’s Nook Design products, the Heartfelt Butterflies along with the Butterflies Stencil Set.

To create this card I started with a A2 piece of Bristol Smooth Cardstock and the solid layer of the Butterflies Stencil Set, and inked it up using Distress Oxides (in Twisted Citron, Salty Ocean, and Wilted Violet). I lined up and added the second layer of the stencil and added the details using white pigment ink. Make sure to set it aside to dry for a bit!

Now with the background drying, I heat embossed the image from the Heartfelt Butterflies stamp set with gold embossing powder on to vellum, and die cut it using the largest scallop heart from the Heart Frames Die Set. Lastly I heat embossed a sentiment from the same stamp set on to a die cut from the Banner Trio Die Set.

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

Wax seals as sentiments | Eid on the Feed

Why hello there! It’s been a minute, as much as I enjoy sharing, the blogging/photography/editing gets a little boring and I use my spare time to go and craft! I posted these cards on my instagram feed a while back, but never made it to the blog to share product links and such!

To create these cards, I started by printing images from Clear and 88’s Bold Bouquet Stamp Set. I colored them using Studio 71 Watercolor Pencils and fussy cut them.

To create the backgrounds, I die cut Pink Fresh Studio’s Geo Floral and Geo Leaf Background Die from white card stock. Then I lightly ink blended on the card base with a blue ink to add some depth, before adhering the cover die cuts.

Lastly I finished of the card with some wax seals from Wax Seals By Aisha.

Thanks for stopping by the blog and I hope this inspires you to create Eid cards with non eid specific products!

Happy Crafting!

Rainbow Balloons | Honey Bee Stamps

What type of card do you make the most? For me it was thank you cards, now it’s birthday cards (I still have to work on the sending part!). And when a brand has a birthday themed release, you know that I’m all for it! Thanks to Honey Bee Stamps I finally have a balloon stencil!

Stencils and ink blending are one of the easiest ways to create a quick but fancy looking card! To create this card, I started with an A2 piece of Bristol Smooth Cardstock and adhered the large balloon stencil. I inked it up in rainbow order using distress oxides in Picked Raspberry, Festive Berries, Ripe Persimmon, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, Salty Ocean, and Wilted Violet. The I used the second layer of smaller balloons with white pigment ink to create a shadow look.

I finished off the card with a stacked ‘happy birthday’ die cuts from Bitty Buzzwords die set.

This card is part of the Honey Bee Stamps Instagram hop. So head over to my Instagram to start hopping and be inspired!

Thanks for stopping by! Till the next time stay safe!

Pretty Pink Posh

Butterfly Box Card | Pretty Pink Posh

Y’all I finally made a box card! I shared it on Instagram a while back, but I didn’t get a chance to share it here! I’ve been hoarding this box card die from Lawn Fawn for YEARS!! Finally unclipped the dies and made this card along with some Pretty Pink Posh products.

Making a box card wasn’t too difficult, but it takes a little planning as there are multiple components. I’m going to break it down into steps, in hopes to keep it clear!

  1. Inked up two 6 x 6 sheets of white card stock on both sides. I used the Butterfly Background Stencil along with distress oxides in Picked RaspberryFestive BerriesRipe PersimmonSqueezed LemonadeTwisted CitronSalty Ocean, and Wilted Violet. Then I die cut it using the Scalloped Box Card Pop-Up.
  2. Stamped, colored (with copics) and die cut the smaller butterfly from Beautiful Butterflies stamp set.
  3. Stamped, colored and fussy cut the floral border from the Spring Borders stamp set.
  4. To assemble the box, I started by assembling the box using double sided tape. Next I added the floral border, three times. Lastly I used thin strips of acetate to adhere the butterflies.
  5. Lastly, I added a sentiment. 

I hope this encourages you to create something out of your comfort zone!

Sneak Peaks Day 2 | Honey Bee Stamps

Back with a quick idea for day 2 of Honey Bee Stamps Let’s Celebrate Release. We will be sharing sneak peak daily till May 3rd so make sure to stop by daily for new peaks!

When you have a name like mine, you literally NEVER get to pick something off the shelf! Yay for alpha stamps that let you create WHATEVER you want! And that’s exactly what I did with the new Sugar Cookie Alphabet stamp set. I heat embossed the letters in gold, die cut with the coordinating die cuts. I cut a book mark shape from a sheet from the Funfetti Birthday paper pack. Added some ribbon and now my daughter has a custom book mark!

Thanks for stopping by and make sure to head over to Instagram for more inspiration!

Sneak Peaks Day 1 | Honey Bee Stamps

It’s time again for a brand new release from Honey Bee Stamps! We will be sharing sneak peak daily till May 3rd so make sure to stop by daily for new peaks!

For today’s card, I decided to step out of my comfort zone to use pattern paper, along with the balloon stamps from Fancy Frosting stamp set. I stamped, colored them with copics, restamped and heated embossed with silver embossing powder, and lastly die cut them using the coordinating dies.

When trying to add them to the pattern paper that I chose from the Funfetti Birthday paper pad, which was also going to be the sentiment, they were getting lost so I added a piece of vellum to allow the balloons to pop a bit more.

Thanks for stopping by and make sure to head over to Instagram for more inspiration!
