Newton’s Nook Designs June Release – Day 4 – Newton’s Kite + coordinating dies  | Newton’s Nook Designs

Happy Thursday! Today is the last day of the June reveal week over at Newton’s Nook Designs! We are showcasing the Newton’s Kite stamp set along with its coordinating dies.

Today’s stamp set is another one that it perfect for an interactive card! I used a pull tab mechanism for mine, messed it up a bit, but the card still looks good!

To create this card, I started by stamping and coloring Newton from Newton’s Kite stamp set with some alcohol markers, and die cut using the coordinating dies, and setting it aside to create the scene.

Similar to my interactive card from yesterday, I used a grass border die and green ink to create a grassy border. Next I inked up my card front using the Petite Clouds Stencil and the Tree Line Stencil, I stamped a sentiment and created the (not so straight!) pull tab. I finished off the card by adding the colored image using some foam tape and snipping off the kite and adding a little twine!

Newton’s Nook Designs June Release – Day 3 – Dog Park + coordinating dies | Newton’s Nook Designs

Happy Wednesday! Hope your week is going well and if not, well the weekend is just around the corner! Today I’m sharing another stamp set as part of the June reveal week over at Newton’s Nook Designs! Today we are showcasing the Dog Park stamp set along with its coordinating dies.

I thought that this set was perfect to make an interactive card! To create it, I started by stamping and coloring the dog, birthday hat and ball from the Dog Park stamp set, using alcohol markers. I die cut them using the coordinating dies and set them aside while I created the scene.

I inked up a scrap piece of paper with some green ink, and die cut it with a grass edge die, I stamp part of my sentiment on to it. Next I inked up my card from with the Petite Clouds Stencil, stamped the rest of the sentiment and created the interactive part of the card. I added the colored elements along with the grass border to finish of the card!

Newton’s Nook Designs June Release – Day 2 – Flamingo Oval  | Newton’s Nook Designs

Happy Tuesday! Hope y’all had a great start to the week! Welcome to the second day of June reveal week over at Newton’s Nook Designs! I am so excited to be here sharing a whole bunch of fun products! Today we are showcasing the Flamingo Oval stamp set that works with the previously release Oval Frame Die Set.

This release is perfect for summer themed cards and what says summer more than a flamingo! I love the pun-ny sentiments on todays stamp set and how well they pair with the Summer Time paper pad.

For my first card today I started by stamping and coloring the image from the Flamingo Oval stamp set using alcohol markers. Then I die cut it using a scalloped oval die cut from the Oval Frame Die Set. I also die cut two stitched ovals from vellum, one to add to the back of the colored image, and one to stamp and emboss a sentiment on to.

I finished off the card by stacking the die cut ovals, and adding to a sheet of pattern paper from the Summer Time paper pad.

While trying to finish my first card I stamped the sentiment you see here on the second card, but it covered too much of the colored flamingos, so I didn’t use it there but also didn’t want to throw it out, so I created this second card!

I used one sheet of pattern paper from the Summer Time paper pad cut in up and flipped it over for a layered too. I wrapped a piece of twine around it before adding the sentiment using come foam tape.

Happy Monday! Welcome back to the first day of June reveal week over at Newton’s Nook Designs and after an exhausting week of the most random things happening, I am so excited to be here sharing a whole bunch of fun products! Today we are showcasing the Beach Bound stamp set along with the Coordinating Dies, Summertime Paper Pad and the Palm Tree Stencil.

This release is perfect for summer themed cards, and also masculine ones! I love all the products that we are revealing today as they are perfect for masculine cards, which I have a super hard time making!

For my first card today I started my stamping and coloring 3 of of the images from the Beach Bound stamp set with alcohol markers, and die cutting them using the coordinating dies. Next I die cut 3 banners using a die cut from the Frames & Flags Die Set and the new Summer Time paper pad.

I stamped a sentiment from the same Beach Bound stamp set on to one of them and stacked them on to a card front. I finished off the card by adding the die cut images using some foam tape and adding a few sequins.

For my second card, I went for a CAS card using the Palm Tree Stencil. I started by masking off the bottom two thirds of the card front and inking up the rest with light blue ink. Next I added the palm tree layers using 2 shade of brown and a green ink.

I finished off the card with a sentiment and colored and die cut image from the Beach Bound stamp set.

Strawberry Inspired Birthday Shaker Card | Ellen Hutson

Hi crafty friends! Hope that y’all had a great long weekend! Life has been very real these past few weeks, so unfortunately blogging took a back seat. As I get used to my new schedule I have high hopes being more regular here! I was on the Ellen Hutson Blog last week and it was so exciting to be on there as I have been a fan of Ellen Hutson for years! Did you know that May is National Strawberry month? I didn’t, until Carly reached out to me about guest designing! I’m was over the moon, who wouldn’t be as Ellen Hutson is my favorite one stop shop for all things crafty, especially as they are just a drive away!

Let’s get to the card I’m shared on the Ellen Hutson Blog! I love shaker cards, they aren’t as complicated as they look, especially when you use a frame die cut! I used the colors of a strawberry as my starting point for this card. I choose the following distress oxide inks for my blend.

I used Abandoned Coral, Candied Apple, Twisted Citron, and Mowed Lawn, along with Black Soot and Gansai Tambi White paint for the splatters.

Ink splatters are a great way to hide imperfections in the ink blending, and they worked well with my strawberry theme. If using multiple colors of splatters, let each one dry before adding the next layer to avoid muddy colors.

Once my ink splatters dried, I die cut the ink blended sheet using the Pretty Pink Posh Birthday Frame Die. I wanted to add something to the back of the shaker, and the cake from the Essentials By Ellen’s Cake by Julie Ebersole fit in the frame perfectly with space for a sentiment.

I stamped the outline of the image using Versafine Ink (in Onyx Black) along with the sentiment. I recommend using a stamp positioner for this step as it makes lining up the solid stamp easier. For the solid images of the stamp, I used the same distress oxide inks as my ink blend, Abandoned Coral, Candied Apple, and Twisted Citron.

I finished off the card by creating a shaker using some liquid glue to adhere the die cut frame to the acetate, then added a thin pieces of foam tape to add dimension for the shaker. I created the shaker mix using matching colors from my sequin stash. I filled my shaker window, added the backing with the stamped image and sentiment and added it to a card front.

Thank you all for following along, I hope that you are inspired to create something, with strawberries, or not! If you do get crafty, please tag me @everydayengineered on Instagram, along with @ellenhutsonllc so that we can see what you have made!

And lastly, thank you to the Ellen Hutson team for this lovely opportunity!

Take care,
Farhana

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.

PS you can find my other cards for the 2021 Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop here : card 1, card 2 and 3.

Happy Crafting!
