Sneak Peaks Day 1 | Honey Bee Stamps

It’s time again for a brand new release from Honey Bee Stamps! We will be sharing sneak peak daily till May 3rd so make sure to stop by daily for new peaks!

For today’s card, I decided to step out of my comfort zone to use pattern paper, along with the balloon stamps from Fancy Frosting stamp set. I stamped, colored them with copics, restamped and heated embossed with silver embossing powder, and lastly die cut them using the coordinating dies.

When trying to add them to the pattern paper that I chose from the Funfetti Birthday paper pad, which was also going to be the sentiment, they were getting lost so I added a piece of vellum to allow the balloons to pop a bit more.

Thanks for stopping by and make sure to head over to Instagram for more inspiration!

Happy Crafting!

Newton’s Nook Designs April Release – Day 2 – Captivated Kittens + coordinating Dies

Happy Tuesday! 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! Today we are showcasing the Captivated Kittens stamp set and coordinating die. Here’s how I was inspired!

To create this card I started by stamping, coloring (with copics and added accents with a white gel pen) die cutting one of the images from the Captivated Kitten stamp set. To create the background, I used the solid stencil from the Butterflies Stencil Set and inked it up with yellow, orange and pink ink.

When assembling the card I felt I made the background too bold, so I die cut a vellum circle using the Circle Frames Die Set and embossed a sentiment from the Captivated Kittens stamp set onto it. Lastly as always I added a few jewels to finish off the card.

Newton’s Nook Designs April Release – Day 1 – Gnome Garden and Bleeding Heart + coordinating Dies, Petite Clouds Stencil

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! Today we are showcasing the Gnome Garden and Bleeding Heart stamp sets and coordinating dies & Petite Cloud Stencil. Here’s how I was inspired!

I’ve recently been trying to make more CAS cards and ’embrace the white space’.

For my first card, I used the Gnome holding the flower image from the Gnome Garden stamp set, colored (with copics) and die cut using the coordinating die. I masked, stamped and embossed part of the Blooming Botanicals stamp set. I inn blended one the embossing before removing the masking, to achieve the straight edges.

Lastly I added a sentiment from the same Gnome Garden stamp set, along with some jewels to match the ink blending.

Using the Bleeding Heart stamp set, I made a pair of ‘mini cards’. I die cut the scalloped rectangle from the Slimline Frame & Portholes Die Set and folded it in half to make the card base.

I stamped and colored (with copics) the large image from the Bleeding Heart stamp set, and die cut it using the coordinating die. I adhered it to my card base using liquid glue and stamped a sentiment from the same stamp set. Lastly I added some matching jewels.

Would you like to win the “Gnome Garden” or the “Bleeding Heart” Stamp Set? We will choose ONE lucky winner for each stamp set!

Peony Friendship Card | Newton’s Nook Designs

Happy Thursday! For the first time in FOREVER I have weekend plans, A LOT of them! So keeping this short so I can go and tackle my LONG to do list and getting straight to the card!

If you haven’t figured it out yet, I love embossing and florals! Meaning I’m super excited about spring and creating with ALL the florals stamps!! For this card, I used the Peony Blooms Stamp Set from Newton’s Nook Designs. I stamped the images with a light brown ink, colored with copic markers (RV14-13-10, YG23-13-03) and then stamped with watermark ink and embossed in gold. Since I don’t have the Peony Blooms Die Set I fussy cut the images.

So create the background I used the Bold Blooms Stencil to dry emboss an white A2 card base. Lastly, I stamped a sentiment from the Blooming Botanicals Stamp Set on to a banner die cut from the Frames & Flags Die Set. And of course I finished off with some jewels!

I hope this card inspires you to create something for spring! 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!

inky paws challenge, Newtons Nook Designs

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
