Newton’s Nook Designs March Release – Day 4 – Fabulous Fungus + coordinating Dies

Happy Thursday! Welcome to the last day of reveal week for at Newton’s Nook Designs March release! The release goes live tomorrow! Today we are showcasing the Fabulous Fungus stamp set along with the coordinating dies.

I used today’s stamp set, the Fabulous Fungus to create this very CAS card! Very rare for me, but I really wanted to let the image of the stamp set shine!

To create this card, I started by stamping two of the images from twice, and the cluster of mushrooms once. I stamped them using light brown ink, and restamped with watermark ink and embossed with gold embossing powder after coloring the images with copic markers. After the embossing cooled, I die cut all the images using the coordinating dies.

I added the images on to a card front, using liquid adhesive and foam tape for added dimension. I finished off the card by stamping and embossing a sentiment from the same set.

Thanks for following along all week! Can’t wait to see what y’all get tomorrow and what you create!

CAS Egg Shaped Easter Card | Ellen Hutson

Happy Tuesday crafty friends! I was on the Ellen Hutson Blog last Friday sharing an Easter card using the new Sweet Spring stamp set and wanted to share in on here too cause I loved how it came out! I was inspired (probably more manifesting spring!) using pastel colors that make me think of Spring and all the new blossoms coming our way! 

To some, this may not be a CAS card, but for my cardmaking style of ink blending and multiple layers, I consider this a CAS card! Sharing some tips below to match your card to the season! 

Firstly I stamped multiple images from the Sweet Spring with black ink on to copic friendly white paper, and colored them using my lightest copic combos. I always associate pastels with Spring, muted colors with Fall, and blues with Winter! The copic markers I used are shown below.

Next I using the Essential Eggs Dies to cut out a shaped card front. I also used the next size down die to cut a golden border to match the gold paint splatter I added to the card front as I wanted to add a little sparkle to the background, after adding the paint it also looked more like an easter egg! 

For the sentiment, I used the new Some Bunny die. I wanted to match it to my colored images, but I didn’t have matching colored card stock, but no worries! I just used copic markers to create an ombre look that matched my images! 

I diecut a few extra of the sentiment to stack them up before adding them to the card front. I like the dimension of stacked word sentiments on a card front, worth the extra effort! Make sure to save the negative of the die cut to help add it to the front of your card! 

Lastly, to add the backing of the card, just score a bit on the top, fold it down and add some strong double sided tape.

I finished off the card by adding die cut word sentiment and the colored images to create a small scene and also used both foam tape and liquid adhesive to create some dimension when layering the images.

Thank you all for following along, I hope that you are inspired to create something with a spring or easter them, 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 having me back on the EH blog!

Take care,

Baby Shaker Card | Pretty Pink Posh

Happy Friday Crafty Friends! I hope that you had a great week! I haven’t had a chance to craft in a few days (but I did make a Cricut project, you can see it here!), but I am working on getting chores done, so I can escape to the craft room during the weekend! In the meanwhile, I’m going to share a CAS baby card that I made a while back and totally forgot to share!

One of my favorite things to do these days is customize my cards and gifts! This card was for my cookie besties baby, Paul! Click here to see the gift that went with the card!

To create this card, I started by stamping 3 of the smaller images from the Pretty Pink Posh Baby Stamp Set. I colored them using copic makers and die cut it using the coordinating die. Next, I die cut the word “baby” using the Baby Script Die from light blue card stock, 3 times and stacked them, to match copic coloring.

To create the shaker, I die cut the name “Paul” using the Lawn Fawn Henry’s ABCs, from an A2 card front and backed it with some acetate an added the center piece of the “A”. For the back of the shaker I added a little ink blending with green, blue and purple. It’s hard see in the picture as I ended up overfilling my shaker pocket!

After I was done ink blending, I added foam tape to create the shaker, filled it with glitter and star sequins, and closed it off with the ink blended panel.

I finished off the card by adding the stacked word die cut, along with my colored die cut images.

Thanks for following along! I really hope this inspires you to create something new or attempt something you have been avoiding!

CAS Fall Floral Card | Honey Bee Stamps

Happy Tuesday! I hope that y’all had a productive start to the week! My Monday was so productive I’m ready for the weekend, LOL! Well more like I’m ready for my crafty time!

Popping in today to share a card I made using the new Honey Bee Stamps release! I loved ALL the fall things from this release, so I’m so glad that I got to play with some!

To create this card, I started by stamping one of the images from the On The Line: Fall Florals stamp set with brown copic friendly ink onto white card stock. I colored it in using the colors shown below and then die cut one side only using the coordinating On The Line: Fall Florals die cuts.

To finish off the card, I stamped and embossed a sentiment from the same On The Line: Fall Florals stamp set with gold embossing powder. And added it to a card front layered with the Ornate A2 Cover Plate Base along with the Ornate A2 Cover Plate Top Dies.

I hope you enjoyed this quick CAS card! Make sure to tag @honeybeestamps and me, @everydayengineered, if you are inspired by this card and create something!

CAS Ice Cream Birthday | Ellen Hutson x Mama Elephant

Happy Monday! I’m still procrastinating on my mile long to do list, I did knock off a few things, so maybe I’ll call creating this card a break? The new Ice Cream Stand stamp set from Ellen Hutson and Mama Elephant is such a cute set, I just can’t get enough of it!It’s part of their summer of stamping celebration, and there’s a lot more fun coming (make sure to check out the latest release here)!

As I was short on time, I used a graphic from Mama Elephant as my inspiration for coloring! After stamping the images from the Ice Cream Stand stamp set, and coloring the images using copic markers, and die cut them using the coordinating dies.

To ground the images on the card, I used a circle die to create a mask and inked it up using some Salvage Patina Distress Oxide ink.

I added the die cut images to the card and stamped the sentiment from the same Ice Cream Stand stamp set to finish off the card!

Thanks for stopping by the blog, make sure to stop by Ellen Hutson tomorrow as they have a new release coming! 

Happy Crafting!

CAS Birthday Card | Pretty Pink Posh

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!

Sweet Treats | Mama Elephant

Happy Friday Crafty Caffeinated Friends! I’m up on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog today with a guest post! Thank you CLC and Amy for having me again! I’m usually a layer it up card maker, but today I decided to attempt a CAS card inspired by the first challenge from the new Caffeinated Christmas Card Challenge, Snowflakes and my winter break being stuck in the snow! 

To create this card, I started by stamping the mug image from Mama Elephant’s Hot Cocoa Stamp Set and the other two images from the Sweet Treats Stamp Set with copic friendly ink and colored them in using copic markers. One colored I die cut them using the coordinating dies (Sweet Treats and Hot Cocoa).

To assemble the card, I started by dry embossing an A2 card front using the Snowfall Stencil from Newton’s Nook Designs. I layered the images using some foam tape to add a little dimension. I stamped and embossed a sentiment from the Sweet Treats Stamp Set on to a piece of black paper, and trimmed it down. As always I added some jewels to my card to finish it off.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope that this card inspires you to create something and you get some crafty time this weekend! 

Happy Crafting!

P.S. Linking this to the Caffeinated Christmas Card Challenge, Snowflakes.

CAS Fall card | Pretty Pink Posh

Happy Friday y’all! I am popping in quickly with a CAS card I put together last night, after I found some colored images from the Cozy Fall Critters Stamp Set. I created another card using the same stamp set, you can find the details here.

As the images were already colored, the card came together pretty quickly! I started by Adding the Leaves Background Stencil to an A2 size piece of white card stock, then I masked of most of it using post it tape. I ink blended using distress oxides in Dried Marigold, Scattered Straw, and Peeled Paint.

For the sentiment I fussy cut out the “hello” from the Hello Shaker Die after die cutting it from brown glitter card stock and stacked with Kraft paper. After adding the colored images with a combination of liquid adhesive and foam tape too add a tad bit of dimension. And as always I finished off with some jewels! I used the harvest jewel mix.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope that you were inspired to create something! Make sure to tag me @everydayengineered and @prettypinkposh on Instagram and join the Facebook group so that we can see what you have created!

Embossed Shaker Birthday Card | Honey Bee Stamps

Happy Hump Day! I keep thinking it’s Tuesday, so I clearly need to get started on my extremely long to do list! So let’s keep it short and sweet here and get straight to the card!

This card is possibly my most CAS card yet! I love the end result and it was so quick and easy to make! Just make sure that you have heat resistant acetate!

To create this card, I started by dry embossing the small balloon stencil from Layering Balloons Stencils on to an A2 piece of white paper. Next I die cut the shadow die from the Birthday die cut set to create the shaker window. I heat embossed the word birthday from the Birthday stamp set with white embossing powder and the happy on to a strip of black card stock. I created the shaker window by layering the acetate behind the die cut window with liquid adhesive, and added lots of foam tape to create “box”, filled it with the latest fad, clay confetti! and backed it with an A2 piece of card stock. Lastly I added the strip sentiment to finish off the card!

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!

Watercolored Floral CAS card | Honey Bee Stamps

Happy Hump Day! I’ve had a pretty productive day, probably motivated by girls night out in a few hours! So who else owns a billion water colors and doesn’t use any of them? Guilty! I loved the hand drawn images in the Riding By stamp set, and thought it would look perfect with some messy watercoloring.

I love my foam tape, and that’s probably why I have such a hard time making CAS cards! But I tried to not add TOO much dimension and left A LOT of white space!

I started by gold embossing the basket, a branch and the ‘happy birthday’ sentiment from the Riding By stamp set directly onto the card base (I used Canson XL watercolor paper). Then I heat embossed the floral bunch and some extra branches. I colored them all in with some watercolors and let it air dry. Then I die cut the layered images with the coordinating dies, and adhered them with some foam tape. Lastly, I added some gems.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today! I hope that you are keeping cool, its been HOT here in the PNW and all I want to do is sleep!

Happy Crafting!
