Cup of Cocoa | Newton’s Nook Designs

Happy Monday y’all! I hope that you had a great crafty and caffeinated weekend! Popping in today with a winter themed card, incase you are done with holiday crafting, but still not ready to move on to Valentines!

I started this card by stamping ALL the images from the Cup of Cocoa stamp set on to white card stock and colored them with copic markers (sorry no combos as I used so many I made a mess and lost track!). Once the coloring was done, I fussy cut the images (I finally ordered the die, they just haven’t arrived yet!)

I die cut a stitch square and using some thin washi tape to make a grid that I then inked up using some distress oxide ink in a rainbow order. After removing the wash, I stamped a sentiment in the center square and added the colored images using foam tape. As always I finished off the card using some jewels and adding the card front to a 5 x 5 Kraft card base.

I hope these cards inspire you to create something winter themed! 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!

Happy crafting!

Thanks a Latte (in the Fall) | Honey Bee Stamps

Two posts in one day! Woah what! After my cleaning session, I had a few minutes before the dishwasher and dryer were done, and with two kids napping, I figured I’d get a little crafty time in and finished another card to sneak into the Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.

For this card, I paired some fall and winter products from Honey Bee Stamps cause I am not yet ready to let go of fall! I also finally attempted and successfully created a full panel shaker card!

To create this card, I started by created the shaker using this method and the Autumn Splendor Cover Plate and added it to a top folding A2 card front.

Next I created the mugs using the Mugs and Kisses die set along with the Darling Dahlias stamp set. I colored in the flowers with copics and then used a copic BG11 to color around it. I stamped the latte art from the Hug in a Mug stamp set and ink blended over it with some brown distress ink and die cut it using the coordinating die.

Lastly I built the sentiment with the “thanks a” from the Hug in a Mug stamp set and the “latte” from the Bitty Buzzwords: Fall die set cut from matte gold paper.

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)!

Coffee Loving Cardmakers Fall/Winter Blog Hop | Newton’s Nook Designs

Happy Friday y’all! It’s been a long but thankfully productive week! Just finished a baking session and thought that I would take a break and share a pair for card before starting a cleaning session!

It’s the last day of the Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop, and Newton’s Nook Designs is having a sale, so I thought I’d share some inspiration using the new stamp from their November release that are also included in the sale!

I made a pair of cards using my new favorite coffee products (including the new Coffee House Stories Paper Pad!) from Newton’s Nook Designs.

For my first card, I started by stamping and coloring some of the images from the Time For Coffee stamp set using copic markers and die cut them using the coordinating Time For Coffee Die Set. I stamped and embossed a sentiment from the same stamp set on to a stitched banner diecut from the Bookmark Die Set.

I assembled the card on a A2 Kraft card base, firstly adding two strips of pattern paper from the Coffee House Stories Paper Pad. Next I added the colored images layered with the sentiment banner and finished off with some jewels as always!

For the second card, I used the same Time For Coffee stamp set, this time coloring and die cutting some of the other images and coloring them with copic markers. This time I stamped and embossed the sentiment on a stitched circle die cut from vellum, I cut using the Circle Frames Die Set

I assembled this card on a A2 Kraft card base also, starting with two strips of pattern paper from the Coffee House Stories Paper Pad. Next I added the colored images layered with the vellum circle and finished off with some jewels as always!

Newton’s Nook Designs November Release – Day 1 – Time for Coffee + coordinating Dies, Coffee House Stories Paper Pad

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! This release is probably my favorite of the year! Coffee and Books, it was made for me! Today we are showcasing the Time for Coffee stamp set along with the coordinating Dies, and a new paper pad, Coffee House Stories! Here’s how I was inspired!

The Coffee House Stories is my crafty wish come true on paper! After the Meowy Christmas Paper Pad was released, I was like we have to have a coffee one! So of course I had to use them on almost all my cards! And more cards are on the way! This is one paper pad I won’t be hoarding!

For my first card, I used a sheet of the paper paper as my inspiration! I stamped and colored the to – go mug from the Time for Coffee stamp set using copic markers and dir cutting it using the coordinating dies. I crated the back ground for the card using a Kraft card base, and a sheet from the Coffee House Stories pattern paper pad.

I finished off by stamping a sentiment from the same Time for Coffee stamp set on to a pink strip of paper and attached the colored die cuts on it, and lastly, like all my cards, added some jewels!

I loved the Coffee House Stories pattern paper pad so much, I had to create a second card using some older products that coordinate perfectly with it! To create this card, I started by stamping and coloring Newton from Newton’s Mug and die cutting using the coordinating Newton’s Mug Die, I stamped the image a second time on to a sheet of pattern paper from the Coffee House Stories pattern paper pad and paper pieced it on to the colored die cut.

For the card base, I embossed Mugs Stencil on to some craft paper, added a strip of pattern paper from the Coffee House Stories paper pad that matched the colored image. I finished off the cards by stamping a sentiment from the Time for Coffee stamp set on to a banner cut from the Banner Trio Die Set and a few jewels.

National Coffee Day | Honey Bee Stamps

You really thought I could let “National Coffee Day” go buy without making a coffee themed card! I’m all for made up holidays, esp ones that involve coffee! Be sure to head over the the Coffee Loving Card Makers Blog for more inspiration!

I used one of my favorite coffee stamp from Honey Bee Stamps, Treat Yo Self to create this cozy fall themed coffee card.

To create this card, I started by stamping three of the coffee mug images from the Treat Yo Self using black ink on to heavy weight card stock. I colored the images using copic marker and die cut them with the coordinating dies. I stamped a sentiment from the same stamp set onto pink card stock and cut it using the coordinating die cut.

Next I created the background using the Sweet Stacks Rectangle Dies, along with the Gingham Galore : Fall paper pad and the Cable Knit Sweater stencil. I inked up the stencil using Tumbled Glass and Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Inks along with white pigment ink. After the inked panel dried, I added the colored die cuts using foam tape, and finished off with some jewels.

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!

Love you S’more | Coffee Loving Cardmakers

Happy Friday! Welcome back for my last caffeinated card as guest designer on the Coffee Loving Papercrafters Blog! It’s been a wild month for so, I’m so glad that I got to craft as a distraction! As much as I love summer, I am ready for all things FALL! It’s already looking like fall in my craftroom, as you can tell from today’s card, along with the one that I shared last week!

Copic Combos : 0, N0; BG 10, 11, 13; YR 14, 15, 12; E 57, 37, 15, 13

For today’s card, I started by stamping ALL the images from Honey Bee Stamps Love you S’more stamp set. I colored them using copic markers (listed above) and die cut them using the coordinating dies.

Then I created the background for the images to pop on, using some Gina K Blue Lagoon Ink and Newton Nook Designs Mug Stencil. Alternating between foam tape and glue, I adhered the colored images to the card front. I created the sentiment using the new Bitty Buzzwords Fall Diecuts along with the Bitty Buzzwords Fall Stamp set from Honey Bee Stamps latest release. I stacked the word die cut “latte” three times using kraft paper, and embossed and cut off the “lets” from the “let’s get together” on a strip of brown cardstock. Lastly I added some jewels to finish off the card.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Have a great weekend and I hope you get some crafty time! Thank you Amy for this lovely opportunity!

Thank you Amy for inviting me to guest design for the month of August, I’m super excited not only for all the caffeinated craftness I get to share, but also all the fall themed products I’ll get to use!

I colored them to create a rainbow using copic markers and die cut them using the coordinating dies

Next I inked up a A2 card front using the Triangles Stencil using Distress Oxide Inks in Ground Espresso, Brushed Corduroy, and Frayed Burlap. After the ink dried, I embossed the sentiment using versafine onyx ink and clear embossing powder. I finished off the card by stacking the colored die cuts with foam and glue to create dimension, and lastly added some espresso jewels.

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!
