Night skies and Witch Boos | Newton’s Nook Designs

Happy Monday crafty friends! I hope y’all had an amazing weekend and got in a bunch of crafty time! Halloween is growing on me it seems, as I am back with another Halloween card! This time with a night sky in background!

I’ve recently been trying to take more process pictures while crafting, as I know many of you appreciate them!

I started to create this card, by die cutting a circle and inking it up using distress oxide inks in Scattered Straw, Fossilized Amber and Wild Honey, to create a moon.

Next I inked up the negative space create the night sky, again using distress oxides, this time in twisted citron, lucky clover, chipped sapphire and black soot.

Next I added the two die cut pieces to a card front and splattered it with gold paint and let it dry.

Next I stamped and colored a image of a witch from Newton’s Nook Designs Brooms & Boos using the copic markers shown in the picture above. After coloring, I die cut it using the coordinating die from Brooms & Boos Die Set.

I finished off the card by embossing a sentiment from the Brooms & Boos stamp set on to a banner die cut from the Banner Trio Die Set using black card stock and gold embossing powder. I also embossed some stars in gold on to black card stock along with some bats in black on to white card stock, and die cut them with the coordinating dies.

I finished off the card my adhering the colored image along with all the embossed pieces as “embellishments” and the sentiment using a combination of glue and foam tape for dimension.

‘Leftover’ Rainbow Shaker Card | MFT Stamps

I love making 2 for 1 cards! More bang for your time, so why not! I shared a CAS card a while back and decided to save the negative space and use it and create a shaker! I was so quick and easy to put together, and it’s a birthday card that I always need a million of LOL!

As I mentioned, I created this card from a negative die cut left over using My Favorite Things Celebrate with Cake Die. I used Distress Oxide Inks in Worn LipstickWild HoneyTwisted CitronPeacock Feathers, and Wilted Violet. I splatted it with water and dried it with a towel, before die cutting! Then I embossed the sentiment from the My Favorite Things Celebrate Everything stamp set using black embossing powder. Next I back it with some acetate and filled it with sequins.

I finished off the card by die cutting some flames from some scrap cardstock backed with low tack tape so it stays in place so that I could color it using copic markers in Y13 and Y38. Once adhered to the card front, I added some glossy accents to give it some dimension.

Thanks for following along today! I hope that this card inspires you to create something! 

Happy Crafting!

Bunch of Balloons Shaker Card | Spellbinders

Summer was BUSY! As fun as it was, I am ready for football season, rainy crafty nights in and pumpkin patches! I have a thing for rainbows, plus I have a bunch of card from the summer that never made it on to my blog, so you’ll see a few of them pop up once in a while, like today!

I created this card for ScrapbookPal a few months ago and all most products are still available! Birthday cards are my most used cards, and I love being able to create gender neutral ones too!

I started my choosing out my dies from the Spellbinders Color Block Balloons and trimming down a piece of white cardstock to an A2 size.

I die cut the largest balloon from the A2 sized cardstock, saving both sides to use for a shaker. I cut the remaining pieces from a single sheet.

I colored the die cut pieces using copic markers.

I stamped and embossed a sentiment from the Spellbinders It’s Party Time stamp set in black on to the card front.

I added acetate to the back of the card front and added A LOT of foam tape to create the shaker, and added the matching balloon on to the shaker back so it peeks through!

I added the remaining balloons and the strings! Don’t forget to trim the ends off!

Thanks for following along today! I hope that this card inspires you to create something! 

Happy Crafting!

Leaves and Lattes Card

Hello crafty friends! I hope that your week is going well! I have been trying to come on here since Monday, so clearly my week has been busy! Can’t wait to wrap up some real life projects to that I can get back to fall crafting, as it’s my favorite time of year to craft as I LOVE all things fall, including ALL the coffee stamps that are released! I was so excited to be able to add the Fall Calls for Lattes stamp set to my collection! 

To create this card :

I started by stamping all latte and leaves from the Fall Calls for Lattes stamp set on to heavy weight white paper with Honey Bee Stamps Intense Black Ink and colored it using copic markers.

These are the copic markers that I used.

Next I die cut the images using the coordinating dies and played around with my layout, I ended up not using all the pieces that I colored.

 I stamped and embossing the sentiment using VersaFine Ink in Onyx Black and clear embossing powder, and ink blended on to the center of the card front to highlight the colored die cuts using Salvaged Patina distress oxide.

I finished off the card by gluing everything together using a combination of foam tape and liquid adhesive, and adding a few jewels.

Fall Themed Thank You Cards | Newton’s Nook Designs

Happy Tuesday! Hope that you’re week started off well and you get some crafty time soon! I know it doesn’t feel like Fall, but I got a little excited with the new release from Newton’s Nook Designs and couldn’t put it away, so sharing some cards today using the new Autumn Oval stamp set! Its the newest addition to the Oval Collection and works with the previously released Oval Frames Die Set.

To create these cards, I started stamping the large image from the Autumn Oval stamp set on to both white and kraft paper paper using light brown alcohol friendly ink.

I used the same copic markers to color on both sheets, as you can see the Kraft sheet tones down the colors, making it perfect for fall! Once I was done coloring I restamped the image and embossed it with gold. Next I die cut them using one of the scalloped oval die cuts from the Oval Frames Die Set. I also die cut smaller stitched ovals with the same die set and embossed the sentiment on to it.

Before adding the cards to alternating card fronts, I added a few strips of pattern paper from the Autumn Paper Pad, then layered on the oval die cuts, and as always finished off with some sequins.

Newton’s Nook Designs August Release – Day 1 – Franken-Newton + coordinating Die, Halloween Meows Paper Pad, Halloween Woofs Paper Pad and Jack-o’-lantern Stencil Set

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 feel like fall outside, but it sure looks like it’s here in my craft room! Today we are showcasing the Franken-Newton  stamp set and coordinating dies, Halloween Meows Paper Pad, Halloween Woofs Paper Pad and Jack-o’-lantern Stencil Set. Here’s how I was inspired!

Before last year, I never used to make Halloween cards, and I also rarely used my pattern paper, I was more about hoarding it! Being part of the Newton’s Nook Designs has pushed me creatively and I couldn’t be more excited about this years Halloween/Fall release from Newton’s Nook Designs!

For my first card, I used the Franken-Newton stamp set along with the coordinating dies. I started by stamping two of the images to create a couple, and colored them using copic markers (shown below).

After coloring the images, I cut them using the coordinating dies. I used a couple of dies from the Heart Frames Die Set to die cut a heart from the Halloween Woofs Paper Pad and one from black cardstock that I stamped and embossed a sentiment from the Franken-Newton stamp set with white embossing powder.

I finished off the card, with a background panel cut down to an A2 size, and layered on the colored images, along with the colored images, and as always finished off with some sequins.

My second card is a no-coloring card, using sheets from both the Halloween Meows Paper Pad and Halloween Woofs Paper Pad.

I die cut one of the sheets to add a little dimension to the card, and finished off with a sentiment from the Trick or Treat Kittens stamp stamp, embossed on to a circle cut from black card stock using the Circle Frames Die Set.

For my final card for today I used the new Jack-o’-lantern Stencil Set. I inked up the first two layers on to make fall pumpkins. I used distress oxide inks in Walnut Stain, Shabby Shutters, Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade and Shabby Shutters.

I finished off the card using some die cuts from the Fall Friends Die Set along with a vellum circle cut using the Circle Frames Die Set.
