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!
Happy Tuesday! Yesterday was such a productive day thanks to the little one being back in daycare! I was so excited to be able to get things done with a million snack and potty breaks! Here’s to hoping that today is just as if not more productive! Popping in bright and early today to share a very quick card that’s simple to make but looks so fancy!
Happy Friday! I hope that y’all had the exact weekend that you need, productive, relaxing, or crafty! I didn’t get much crafty time but I got to kinda sleep in, as I didn’t get to sleep pretty much ALL week! If y’all are like me and didn’t get to craft over the weekend, I wanted to pop in quickly to share a quick card idea that comes together in about 10ish minutes, so you can create this before bedtime!
It’s release day at Newton’s Nook Designs and a sale cause it’s their 9th birthday!

Happy birthday to Newton’s Nook Designs! I hope you’ve enjoyed all the birthday themed inspiration I shared this week! Everything will be available for purchase tomorrow, July 15 and there will be having a Birthday Sale! While you wait for the release to go live, I thought that I would share a few more cards to inspire y’all!
I used some of my favorite products from the release to create a few more CAS-ish cards as I just couldn’t stop creating with all the cuteness in the release!
For my first card, I used an image from the Birthday Mice stamp set, I colored it using alcohol markers, and die cut it using the coordinating die.
To finish off the card, I added a strip of pattern paper from the Birthday Party Paper Pad, stamped a sentiment and added a few sequins.
For my second card, I created an inked background using the Bokeh Balloon Stencil. To create the background, I inked up an A2 card panel, I added the first layer of the stencil set, and inked it up with the same colors for a tone on tone look, and using the second stencil with white pigment ink. I finished off and splattered it with white water color paint.
While the inked panel dried, I colored an image from the Birthday Mice stamp set, along with two party hats. I die cut them using the coordinating dies. I also die cut a banner from the Frames & Flags Die Set, onto which I stamped and embossed the sentiments.
I trimmed down the inked panel, and added the colored images and sentiments on top of it! I finished off by adding the party hats to the mice along with some matching sequins.
Thanks for following along all week and the lovely comments! 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!
Hello crafty friends! I hope that you are having a great start to the week! If not, make sure to sneak in some crafty time! Today I’m up on the ScrapbookPal Blog sharing a fun pair of rainbow card, cause when in doubt, rainbow it! I love 2 for 1 cards as extras are always fun!
Next used the second layer (large balloons) the Layering Balloons Stencil and inked it up with the brushes I used for the first layer without actually inking up the blending brushes for a lighter shade of the same color.
Remove the stencil to reveal the pattern!
Next I die cut the inked background using the Happy Happy Happy cover plate. Make sure to save the die cut letters for a second card.
Next I added acetate to the back of the card front die cut, and glued in the centers of the “P” and “A”.
I added foam tape around the back of the card front, and also between the letters to create “pockets” for the different color sequins!
Next I lined up the die cut letters back into the cover die so that it would be easier to add them to a card front. I added iquid adhesive to the back and adhered them to the card front.
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 HutsonBlog 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 HutsonBlog! 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.
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.
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!
Happy Hump Day y’all! It’s been a day, thankfully productive. But as always the to do list didn’t seem to get any shorter, taking a mini break before starting dinner to share a CAS – just stamp card with y’all!
To create this card, I started by stamping the strip of candles Birthday Borders stamp set from Pretty Pink Posh on to an A2 piece of white cardstock and colored it using copic markers. Once I was done coloring I used a grey copic to add a shadow under the candles.
To finish off the card, I added some glossy accents to the flames and stamped the sentiment “so many candles“, possibly my last woodblock stamp that my son found and is now obsessed with!

Hello Crafty Friends! Hope that y’all are having a fun and productive start to the week! I’m still working on that routine, especially motivated by the fact that the faster I get work and chores done, the more time I have to craft!
I covered the inked panel using the (new) Mod A2 Cover Plate die cut from white card stock. I built the sentiment using the Birthday die cut, along with the Birthday stamp set. And as always I finished off my card using some rhinestones.
I hope that this inspires you to create something crafty at the end of your day! If you do, and share on Instagram, be sure to tag me (@everydayengineered) and Honey Bee Stamps (@honeybeestamps)! We love to see what you create!
Happy Thursday y’all! Almost done with the week and time for some crafting over the weekend! I don’t know about you, but fall going into winter is probably my favorite season to craft! Especially since it’s perfect time to use all those sunflower (and poinsettia) stamps! I love making season birthday and thank you cards, it helps make the post of your stamps too!
For today’s card, I designed it around the Falling Leaves Stencil, I ordered it a while back, but it fell to the bottom of the pile and I just never used it!
Next I created the background using distress oxide inks (in wilted violet, spun sugar, scattered straw) and white texture paste. I started by inking up an A2 sheet of Bristol Smooth card with the distress oxide inks, and splattered the sheet with water and white paint. Once it dried I layered the Falling Leaves Stencil, and added the texture paste. I let it dry a few hours before adding the colored images using foam tape, and a sentiment from the Birthday Roundabout Stamp Set stamped on a banner from the Banner Trio Die Set. And as always I finished off the card with some jewels.
I hope this card inspires you to create something for fall! 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!
