Newton’s Nook Designs October Release – Day 3 – Christmas Nap and Newton’s Gift + coordinating Die

Happy Wednesday! 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! It might not be the holiday season yet, but it sure looks like it’s here in my craft room! Today we are showcasing the Christmas Nap and Newton’s Gift along with the coordinating Dies! Here’s how I was inspired!

I love creating all ‘levels’ of cards! Sometimes its a super detailed shaker, some times I let the stamp and paper do the work!

For my first card today, I started by stamping, and sentiment, then colored the image from Newton’s Gift with copic markers and die cut it using the coordinating dies. My color palette was inspired by a sheet of pattern paper from the Canine Christmas Paper Pad that I used as the card base.

Once I was done coloring, I trimmed down a piece of pattern paper to an A2 size and used the extra flipped over to create a little dimension.

The colored image was blending into the background, so I decided to die cut a vellum oval using the Oval Frames Die Set to back the image and have it pop a little!

For my second card, I used the new Christmas Nap stamp set, and the image itself is a scene, so I didn’t want to add to much to the card front, and decided to add a night sky shaker window to look like a window behind the sofa.

To create the card, I started by stamping the image, coloring with copic markers and die cutting using the coordinating dies.

Next I created the shaker window using the outline die from the Snow Globe Shaker Die Set, and backed it with acetate. For the back of the shaker I inked blended with distress oxide inks in Stormy Sky and Speckled Egg. Once it was dry, I added some texture paste with the Petite Snow Stencil. I filled the shaker with stars and sequins before adding it to the back of the card.

I finished off the card my adding the colored image in front of the window, and adding the sentiment at the bottom.

Would you like to win the “Christmas Nap” or the “Newton’s Gift” Stamp Set? We will choose ONE lucky winner for each stamp set!

Newton’s Nook Designs October Release – Day 1 – Holiday Heights + coordinating Die, Canine Christmas Paper Pad, Christmas Time Paper Pad and Christmas Tree Line Stencil Set

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! It might not be the holiday season yet, but it sure looks like it’s here in my craft room! Today we are showcasing the Holiday Heights along with the coordinating Dies, and 2 Paper Pads, Christmas Time and Canine Christmas, and the Christmas Tree Line Stencil Set! Here’s how I was inspired!

I’ve recently been enjoying making CAS cards, while sneaking in shakers here and there! So stay tuned as I have a ton of cards to share with y’all this week!

For my first card today, I created a simple card using some pattern paper from the Christmas Time Paper Pad. I die cut it using a cover die, and cut it again using some coordinating plain card stock. I paper pieced it back together in the front of an A2 card base. I finished off the card by stamping a sentiment from the Heartfelt Holidays on to a banner die cut from the Frames & Flags Die Set. Before adhering it to the card I inked it up lightly using Pine Needles Distress Oxide Ink to add a little dimension.

For my second card, I used the Christmas Tree Line Stencil Set. It’s the perfect layered stencil to mass produce cards, as it has the perfect details to make a card look fancy without much work!

To create this card, I started by masking off the bottom half of the card, and covering the rest of it with Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide ink. Next I inked up the first layer of the stencil (the trees) with Pine Needle and Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide ink. I inked up the second layer (stars and trunks) using Scattered Straw and Walnut Stain Distress Oxide ink. For the last layer, I used Nuvo Crystal Drops! Yes, Nuvo drops! Try it! Just remember to wash your stencil ASAP!

After the nuvo drops dried, I stamped sentiment from the Snow Much Cheer to finish off my card.

For my third and last card today, I used one of the images from the Holiday Heights stamp set! This set as it’s own coordinating dies, and it works with the previously released Bookmark Die Set. To create this card, I started with stamping the image, colored it with copic markers, and cut it out using the coordinating die.

To create the shaker/sentiment part of the card, I die cut the word “MERRY” using letter die cuts, backed it with acetate, filled it with gold sequins and closed it up using a second sheet of acetate. I ink blended the front of the card base using distress oxide inks in Barn Door and Pine Needles to show through the shaker letters. I finished off the card by stamping “Christmas!” from the Heartfelt Holidays stamp set, by masking off the “merry” part and adhering the colored image to the front of the card.

Would you like to win the “Holiday Heights” Stamp Set?This stamp set will be given away to ONE lucky winner!

Pretty Pink Posh

Pop up Scarecrow Card

Happy First Day of Fall, Y’all! Unpopular opinion, but I am ready fall! The smoke is here, so need the rains to come and clear it up! I’m looking forward to cooler days, football games and lot more crafty sessions! 

Sharing a kinda over the top card today! I tried to make my first interactive card! A lot went wrong, but I still wanted to share it, as art isn’t perfect and motivate those of your too intimidated to create interactive cards! 

To create this card I started by die cutting the card base from Lawn Fawn‘s Peekaboo Pop-Up twice from white card stock.

I made a valley fold on one of the die cuts and stamped the row of pumpkins along the top from Pretty Pink Posh‘s Fall Borders stamp set. After coloring the image with copic markers, I fussy cut the top half, you can also use the NEW coordinating die cuts to partially die cut, but they hadn’t been released when I started this card! 

Next I created a mask and inked up the bottom of the pumpkins using distress oxides inks in Scattered Straw and Fossilized Amber, and splattered it with some gold paint.

Next I inked up the second die cut, this time scoring with a mountain fold. After scoring I inked it up with distress oxides inks in Wilted Violet, Salvaged Patina, and Broken China. I also splattered it with some gold paint.

Next I stamped, colored and die cut a bunch of images from multiple Pretty Pink Posh stamp sets. Here are the sets and coordinating :
1. Fall Signs : Stamp Set and Coordinating Dies
2. Fall Corners : Stamp Set and Coordinating Dies
3. Cozy Fall Critters : Stamp Set and Coordinating Dies

I used A LOT of copic markers and remembered to take a picture for y’all!

With all the elements colored and shaded, I started to assemble the card, first by adding the pop up arm, and playing around with the placement if all the leaves. I ended up not using the pumpkins.

Finally finishing off the card by adhering everything together!

Thanks for following along on a very long blog post! I really hope this inspires you to create something new or attempt something you have been avoiding!

Night skies and Witch Boos | Newton’s Nook Designs

Happy Monday crafty friends! I hope y’all had an amazing weekend and got in a bunch of crafty time! Halloween is growing on me it seems, as I am back with another Halloween card! This time with a night sky in background!

I’ve recently been trying to take more process pictures while crafting, as I know many of you appreciate them!

I started to create this card, by die cutting a circle and inking it up using distress oxide inks in Scattered Straw, Fossilized Amber and Wild Honey, to create a moon.

Next I inked up the negative space create the night sky, again using distress oxides, this time in twisted citron, lucky clover, chipped sapphire and black soot.

Next I added the two die cut pieces to a card front and splattered it with gold paint and let it dry.

Next I stamped and colored a image of a witch from Newton’s Nook Designs Brooms & Boos using the copic markers shown in the picture above. After coloring, I die cut it using the coordinating die from Brooms & Boos Die Set.

I finished off the card by embossing a sentiment from the Brooms & Boos stamp set on to a banner die cut from the Banner Trio Die Set using black card stock and gold embossing powder. I also embossed some stars in gold on to black card stock along with some bats in black on to white card stock, and die cut them with the coordinating dies.

I finished off the card my adhering the colored image along with all the embossed pieces as “embellishments” and the sentiment using a combination of glue and foam tape for dimension.

‘Leftover’ Rainbow Shaker Card | MFT Stamps

I love making 2 for 1 cards! More bang for your time, so why not! I shared a CAS card a while back and decided to save the negative space and use it and create a shaker! I was so quick and easy to put together, and it’s a birthday card that I always need a million of LOL!

As I mentioned, I created this card from a negative die cut left over using My Favorite Things Celebrate with Cake Die. I used Distress Oxide Inks in Worn LipstickWild HoneyTwisted CitronPeacock Feathers, and Wilted Violet. I splatted it with water and dried it with a towel, before die cutting! Then I embossed the sentiment from the My Favorite Things Celebrate Everything stamp set using black embossing powder. Next I back it with some acetate and filled it with sequins.

I finished off the card by die cutting some flames from some scrap cardstock backed with low tack tape so it stays in place so that I could color it using copic markers in Y13 and Y38. Once adhered to the card front, I added some glossy accents to give it some dimension.

Thanks for following along today! I hope that this card inspires you to create something! 

Happy Crafting!

Happy Tuesday! Yesterday was such a productive day thanks to the little one being back in daycare! I was so excited to be able to get things done with a million snack and potty breaks! Here’s to hoping that today is just as if not more productive! Popping in bright and early today to share a very quick card that’s simple to make but looks so fancy!

To create this card I started with the Layered Butterfly Stencil from Pretty Pink Posh, inking up the first layer using distress oxide inks in kitsch flamingodried marigoldscattered strawtwisted citrontumbled glass and shaded lilac. I inked up the second layer with the same distress oxide inks, going heavy handed this time. Instead of a top to bottom rainbow, this time I went around the card front instead. I finished of the stenciled image using black soot for the last layer.

I finished off the card by adding a word die cut using the Happy Birthday Script Dies and some sequins.

Baby Laundry Card | Honey Bee Stamps

Happy Wednesday! I hope that your week has started off well! I am still playing catch up from July, and I can’t believe that it’s August! But I am excited about ALL the fall crafting!! Farhana from Everyday Engineered and popping in today with a fun baby card! I combined a few products from Honey Bee Stamps to make this CAS-ish card!

To create this card, I started by heat embossing the Spring Blooms Background stamp with watermark ink and white embossing powder.

Next I inked blended over it using distress oxide inks in Worn Lipstick, Wilted Violet, and Peacock Feathers.

Using the Simply Hexagons die from Pink Fresh Studios, I die cut the inked background to create a partial background for the card front. I also die cut a ruffle onesies from some pattern paper using one of the dies from the Bundle Of Joy die set.

Next I played around with some sentiments for the front and inside of the card, from the Inside: Welcome Baby Sentiments stamp set. I just a few strips of pattern paper to match the front of the card and pull it all together.

I finished off the card by stamping/embossing the sentiments, and gluing everything together using a combination of foam tape and liquid adhesive.

Thanks for following along today! I hope that this card inspires you to create something! 

Till the next time, take care!
