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!

Happy crafting!

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!

Happy Friday! This week Newton’s Nook Designs and Therm O Web partnered for a fabulous inspiration week! All week long both design teams have be sharing ways to add use Therm O Web products with Newton’s Nook Designs stamps, dies and stencils! There are prizes too! Read all the way to the end of this post to find out how you can win!

Today I’m sharing a pair of fun cards showing you how to use 2 different Therm O Web products to enhance your cards.

I combined multiple Therm O Web products, along with some of my favorite Newton’s Nook Designs stamps and stencils to create these cards.

For my first card, I started by adding Deco Foil Transfer Gel Duo to some white card stock using the Petite Clouds Stencil and letting it dry. Once it was dry to the touch, I layered it with Deco Foil Flock Transfer Sheets, Blue Sky and ran it through my mini minc machine. I love the finished look so much and even the negetive piece looks like it can be used (so of course I saved it!)

To create the scene, I layered an ink blended hill and grass die cuts, and added colored images from the following sets; Puppy Friends and Gnome Garden stamp sets.

For my second card, I stamped and colored one of my favorite stamps, Heartfelt Roses with copic markers and die cut is using the larger scallop heart from Heart Frames Die Set, I also die cut the smaller scallop heart, stamped a sentiment from the Puppy Friends stamp set, and added a little purple ink to make it pop.

Lastly I added it to a Deco Foil Toner Card Fronts – Dainty Hearts that I foiled using the Deco Foil Transfer Sheets – Prince Periwinkle. It hard to photograph the shine, but it looks amazing in real life!

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! Today we are showcasing the Captivated Kittens stamp set and coordinating die. Here’s how I was inspired!

To create this card I started by stamping, coloring (with copics and added accents with a white gel pen) die cutting one of the images from the Captivated Kitten stamp set. To create the background, I used the solid stencil from the Butterflies Stencil Set and inked it up with yellow, orange and pink ink.

Newton’s Nook Designs April Release – Day 1 – Gnome Garden and Bleeding Heart + coordinating Dies, Petite Clouds Stencil

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! Today we are showcasing the Gnome Garden and Bleeding Heart stamp sets and coordinating dies & Petite Cloud Stencil. Here’s how I was inspired!

I’ve recently been trying to make more CAS cards and ’embrace the white space’.

For my first card, I used the Gnome holding the flower image from the Gnome Garden stamp set, colored (with copics) and die cut using the coordinating die. I masked, stamped and embossed part of the Blooming Botanicals stamp set. I inn blended one the embossing before removing the masking, to achieve the straight edges.

Lastly I added a sentiment from the same Gnome Garden stamp set, along with some jewels to match the ink blending.

Using the Bleeding Heart stamp set, I made a pair of ‘mini cards’. I die cut the scalloped rectangle from the Slimline Frame & Portholes Die Set and folded it in half to make the card base.

I stamped and colored (with copics) the large image from the Bleeding Heart stamp set, and die cut it using the coordinating die. I adhered it to my card base using liquid glue and stamped a sentiment from the same stamp set. Lastly I added some matching jewels.

Would you like to win the “Gnome Garden” or the “Bleeding Heart” Stamp Set? We will choose ONE lucky winner for each stamp set!

Peony Friendship Card | Newton’s Nook Designs

Happy Thursday! For the first time in FOREVER I have weekend plans, A LOT of them! So keeping this short so I can go and tackle my LONG to do list and getting straight to the card!

If you haven’t figured it out yet, I love embossing and florals! Meaning I’m super excited about spring and creating with ALL the florals stamps!! For this card, I used the Peony Blooms Stamp Set from Newton’s Nook Designs. I stamped the images with a light brown ink, colored with copic markers (RV14-13-10, YG23-13-03) and then stamped with watermark ink and embossed in gold. Since I don’t have the Peony Blooms Die Set I fussy cut the images.

So create the background I used the Bold Blooms Stencil to dry emboss an white A2 card base. Lastly, I stamped a sentiment from the Blooming Botanicals Stamp Set on to a banner die cut from the Frames & Flags Die Set. And of course I finished off with some jewels!

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!

Florals and Butterflies | Newton’s Nook Designs

Do you love spring? I love literally EVERYTHING about it besides the allergies! Ughhh the allergies! It’s a good thing craft rooms are safe from pollen resulting in pollen free cards! No sneezes here!

I recently organized my stencils, so of course I discovered a bunch of new ones including the Petite Flowers Stencil from Newton’s Nook Designs. And used it as the starting point for this fun slimline card!

Distress oxides : abandoned coral, spice marmalade, scattered straw

I started by die cutting the large scalloped edge die from the Slimline Frames & Portholes Die Set. Then I used the Slimline Masking Circles & Squares Stencil Set along with the Petite Flowers Stencil to create an ombre background. I heat embossed a sentiment from the Monarchs Stamp Set in the center. To create the shaker element I die cut the trio of windows using the Slimline Frames & Windows Die Set, and layered it with foam tape and acetate, filling it with jewels to match the inked backgrounds.

Lastly, I heat embossed (in gold) the butterflies from Monarchs Stamp Set and inked them up using the same colors as the background. I fussy cut then as I don’t have the coordinating Monarchs Die Set. And finished off the card by adhering them on to the shaker.

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!
