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.

Newton’s Nook Designs October Release – Day 3 – Christmas Nap and Newton’s Gift + coordinating Die

Happy Wednesday! 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 Christmas Nap and Newton’s Gift along with the coordinating Dies! Here’s how I was inspired!

I love creating all ‘levels’ of cards! Sometimes its a super detailed shaker, some times I let the stamp and paper do the work!

For my first card today, I started by stamping, and sentiment, then colored the image from Newton’s Gift with copic markers and die cut it using the coordinating dies. My color palette was inspired by a sheet of pattern paper from the Canine Christmas Paper Pad that I used as the card base.

Once I was done coloring, I trimmed down a piece of pattern paper to an A2 size and used the extra flipped over to create a little dimension.

The colored image was blending into the background, so I decided to die cut a vellum oval using the Oval Frames Die Set to back the image and have it pop a little!

For my second card, I used the new Christmas Nap stamp set, and the image itself is a scene, so I didn’t want to add to much to the card front, and decided to add a night sky shaker window to look like a window behind the sofa.

To create the card, I started by stamping the image, coloring with copic markers and die cutting using the coordinating dies.

Next I created the shaker window using the outline die from the Snow Globe Shaker Die Set, and backed it with acetate. For the back of the shaker I inked blended with distress oxide inks in Stormy Sky and Speckled Egg. Once it was dry, I added some texture paste with the Petite Snow Stencil. I filled the shaker with stars and sequins before adding it to the back of the card.

I finished off the card my adding the colored image in front of the window, and adding the sentiment at the bottom.

Would you like to win the “Christmas Nap” or the “Newton’s Gift” Stamp Set? We will choose ONE lucky winner for each stamp set!
