Inky Paws Challenge #144 | Newton’s Nook Designs

It’s time for some Inky Paws Challenge Inspiration! I’ve got three cards to share today, so let’s get too it! The current Inky Paws Challenge is a sketch challenge, so of course I played with it!

For my first card, I went with a CAS style, something that I usually don’t do. I’m all about the layers, foam tape and sequins!

Copic Combo : YG23-13-03, R29-27-RV25

I decided to use my first Newton’s Nook Design stamp (now retired), that I stamped the rose and leaves, colored in with copics and fussy cut. Then I stamped and embossed the Heartfelt Roses image, and die cut it with the largest scallop heart from the Heart Frames Die Set. Lastly I die cut a banner from the Banner Trio Die Set once from white cardstock, and secondly from pattern paper.

Finally I assembled the card with the heart die cut off set and using foam tape on the rose to add a little dimension and I had to add a few sequins! Is this a CAS card? Let me know in the comments!

For my second card, I rotated the sketch to make a landscape card!

Distress oxides : abandoned coral, spice marmalade, scattered straw. Copic Combos : R20, E57, E55-43-42

I started by ink blending the Petite Flowers Stencil onto an A2 piece of paper. I stamp and colored the image from the Newton’s Mug, colored Newton using copics and die cut it using the coordinating die. Then I paper pieced the mug from some scrap pattern paper. Lastly I diecut a pair of banners from the Banner Trio Die Set, embossing a sentiment from Birthday Roundabout on to one of them. I ended by ink blending the same colors as the stencil on to the banners.

To finish of the card, I added the mug image with foam tape on top of the layered banner, and of course added some sequins!

And … here’s my third card! I personally didn’t love it, but I wanted to post to show that not all cards are “perfect”!

Copic Combos : B05-02-00, R29-27, E37-27, V17-15

But you can’t get to perfect without practice! So go and create! 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!

Coffee Shaker Card | Newton’s Nook Designs

Welcome back to the blog! Today I’m sharing my 4th card for the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! This is my first time participating and I am having so much fun! Fingers crossed for some crafting time tonight to make more cards!

We all know I love making shaker cards! And I love drinking coffee! So here’s a combination of the two! I started this card by inking up an A2 piece of Bristol Strathmore paper using the Mugs stencil with distress oxide inks in shaded lilac, tumbled glass and kitsch flamingo.

Copic combos : BV00-000, R20-11-01, BG11-10, E59-57

I then die cut a window to create the shaker, and stamped a sentiment from Newton Loves Coffee stamp set and filled it with clay confetti. I added the pair of mugs from the Love Cafe stamp set colored with copics (listed above) and die cut using the coordinating die.

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 Newton’s Nook Designs

Donuts and Coffee | Honey Bee Stamps

What better way to start your day then with donuts and coffee? Well nothing much I guess besides crafting while having the donuts and coffee!

If you follow me on Instagram, then you know that I am all about adding rainbows to EVERYTHING! So of course my donuts needed some rainbow glaze too!

I started by stamping the donut image multiple times along the coffee mug from the love you s’more stamp set. I colored them using copic markers (colors listed below) and die cut them with the coordinating dies. Then I added glossy accents to the ‘glaze’ part of the donut and let it dry overnight.

To assemble the card I trimmed down a piece of pattern paper to an A2 size and embossed a sentiment on a scrap from my last card. I added the coffee mug and donuts using foam tape, and also made a mistake! Can you see it?

Copic Combo : C1-3-5, Y15-13, YR07-04, R08-05, YG13-01, BG05-B05, V17-15, E55-33, E15-37

Coffee Lover’s Spring/Summer Blog Hop | Newton’s Nook Designs

It’s finally time for the Coffee Lover’s Spring/Summer Blog Hop! I’ve been making a few cards and so excited to share them over the coming week! Today’s card uses one of my favorite Newton’s Nook Designs stamp sets paired with some pattern paper.

I started by stamping all the coffee mugs in the Newton Loves Coffee stamp set and colored them in with copic markers (colors listed below), and fussy cut them as I don’t have the matching dies.

Copic combo : C1, E59-57, E55-13, BG05-B02, YG 23-03, Y15-13, RV13-11

To assemble the card, I started with a light blue A2 piece of cardstock, then I layered it a sheet of pattern paper. I found the colored images were getting lost in the pattern paper so I added a sheet on vellum, on which I embossed a sentiment. I added the mug images using foam tape and finished off with jewels.

Coffee theme Mini Slimline | Inky Paws Challenge

Happy Wednesday! The only reason I know what day it is, is because I’m teaching the days of the week to my preschooler. Otherwise its all the same! I had a fun (virtual) craft night with some girlfriends yesterday and wanted to pop in to share a card I made!

I was inspired by Amy Tollner’s card that she made for the Inky Paws Challenge. Make sure to check out her post to see how she used a slimline die to make a mini slimline! Me on the other hand, I just used Petite Scallop Mini Slim Stacklets and Stitched Mini Slim Stacklets from Taylored Expressions.

I started by stamping the pair of mugs from the Love Café stamp set and coloring them in with copics (Y15-13-11, YG13-01-00, V17-15-12 and E57-55) and die cutting them out with the coordinating die. I stamped a sentiment from the Cup of Cocoa stamp set onto a strip of paper.

To assemble the card, I created a 3 1/2 by 6 inch side folded card base, stacked it with an ink blended scalloped rectangle die cut using distress oxides (in Squeezed LemonadeTwisted Citron and Shaded Lilac). For the next layer I dry embossed a stitched rectangle using the Mugs Stencil. Finally I adhered the mugs and sentiment using some foam tape, and added some jewels from Pretty Pink Posh (Pansy Purple and Harvest Jewels Mix).

I hope this card inspires you to create something for the Inky Paws Challenge (check out this post for more inspiration.

Floral Coffee Mug | Joy Clair Designs

Hi there! Popping in today with an quick card using digital stamps from Joy Clair Designs. I used the layering trick again to add a floral image to a coffee cup! We all know that I love me some coffee cards!

I used the coffee cup from the Coffee Mood stamp set and the flower from the Hello There stamp set, both of which are digital! That means no masking! Just layering the png files! After printing and coloring, I fussy cut it out. I ink blended the card base and added a piece of pattern paper, before adding the colored image with some foam tape. And stamped a little sentiment strip using the driving by clear stamp set.

Happy Crafting!

Floral Teacup | Joy Clair Designs

3 Day streak on the blog! Say What!! Maybe 2021 is turning around for me! Popping in today with a easy card that I made using images from Joy Clair Designs. I still can’t get over how easy it is to create layered images using digital stamps!

To create the image I layered a teacup from the Coffee Mood Digital Set, with the flower image from You Are Digital Set. After coloring the image using copic markers, I fussy cut it, layered with pattern paper and added the sentiment from Hello There Digital Set, with a little ink blending to help everything blend together for a more complete look.

Thanks for stopping!
Till the next time, stay safe and keep crafting,
