Newton’s Nook Designs 8 Year Celebration + New Cupcake Themed Products and Sale!

Today I am excited to be part of  the 8 year anniversary celebration with Newton’s Nook Designs! To celebrate this awesome milestone, Newton’s Nook Designs has released adorable new cupcake themed products, which I will be sharing on my projects today. There are prizes too! Read all the way to the end of this post to find out how you can win!

I’m always a sucker for a birthday themed release, so of course I was super excited about these cupcake theme products, released to celebrate Newton’s Nooks Designs 8th birthday!

For my first card, I inked up an A2 piece of card stock using the new, Cupcake Stencil Set. I used brown ink for the first layer, rainbow colors for the second and red and white pigment ink for the third. I loved the look so much I didn’t want to take too much away from it, so I die cut two balloons, one from pattern paper and a second from vellum using the Balloon Shaker Die Set. I heat embossed a sentiment in white from the Uplifting Wishes stamp set. I layered the balloons that that sentiment is more visible and attached it to the card, and drew in the string using a black marker and added a few jewels to finish off the card.

For the second card, I decided to try dry embossing with a layered stencil and it worked (I only did the first two layers)! So that’s the based of this card. Next I inked up the same two layers of the Cupcake Stencil with orange and pink ink and cut it to create a panel to add on the card base. Then I colored the image from Newton’s Cupcake stamp set and colored Newton and the cake-frosting with copic markers, and die cut it using the coordinating dies. I paper pieced. The cupcake liner with some pattern paper and added the sentiment on it. I offset it on the card base with foam tape and added clay confetti onto the frosting, cause you can’t celebrate without sprinkles!

For my last card, I started by stamping, coloring and die cutting the image from Newton’s Cupcake stamp set using copic markers and the coordinating dies. Similar to the previous card, I paper pieced the cupcake liner and this time heat embossed the sentiment onto it using white embossing powder and added clay confetti to the frosting. I finished off the card with some pattern paper as the base, and the Birthday Roundabout stamp embossed in white on some blue card stock, die cut with the largest scalloped circle from the Circle Frames Die Set, layered on it before adding the colored image with some foam tape!

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!

Happy Crafting!
