Birthday Ice Cream | Newton’s Nook Designs

Happy Tuesday y’all! Look who is back on the blog! I have no idea where my crafting mojo is these days, I guess I have just been living in the real world! Here’s to hoping that March is craftier as I have a bunch of new products starting at me! Today I used a stamp set that I recently got the dies for and decide to create a summer themed card in hopes of manifesting warmer temperatures here in the NW!

To create this card, I started by stamping all but one of the images from the Summer Scoops Stamp Set with black ink on to copic friendly white card stock. I colored them using the copic shown below, and die cut them using the coordinating Summer Scoops Die Set.

To finish off the card, I embossed the card front using the Petite Hearts Stencil, to add some dimension but not much color as I wanted the die cut images to pop. I die cut a banner from colored cardstock using a banner from the Frames & Flags Die Set. I embossed a sentiment on to it using the white embossing powder, from the same stamp set.

I added all the die cut images, along with the sentiment banner, and finished off with some rainbow sequins.

Thanks for stopping by today! 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!

Ice Cream Birthday | Ellen Hutson x Mama Elephant

Happy “Friday eve”! I’m 100% procrastinating on my mile long to do list, but the new Ice Cream Stand stamp set from Ellen Hutson and Mama Elephant was too cute not to get ink ASAP! It’s part of their summer of stamping celebration, and there’s a lot more fun coming!

Given I didn’t have too much time on hand, and I messed up my first colored image, I went for a CAS card, I have some fun ideas brewing in my head, so let’s see if they get on to paper!

To create this card, I started by stamping the ice cream stand and the little hamster (?) from the Ice Cream Stand stamp set and colored them using copic markers and die cut using the coordinating dies (I picked up the combo!)

I masked off the bottom third of the card front and ink blended the middle third of it with Squeezed Lemonade distress oxide ink. I added the colored images, and stamped a sentiment in the white space.

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

Happy Crafting!
