Halloween Inspiration Week – Day 4 | Newton’s Nook Designs

This week Newton’s Nook Designs is getting ready for Halloween with a fun Inspiration week! All week the NND Design Team will be sharing inspiration using some of their favorite Halloween products to get you in the mood for tricks and treats! Check out what I created today and don’t forget to check the NND Blog each day this week for more fun inspiration!

For my card, I decided to use the Trick or Treat Kittens stamp set, cause who can resist this cute images!

I started by stamping the two images from the Trick or Treat Kittens stamp set on to heavy weight card stock using copic friendly ink and colored them in using copic markers, and die cut them using the coordinating dies.

Copic Combo : N0, C1, 3, 5, 7; E15, 37; YR00; Y15, 17; V15, 17; B00, 02; YG06, 23

Next I created the inked background using distress oxide ink (chipped sapphire, seedless preserves, ripe persimmon, and wild honey). Then I splattered it with water, black and white paint for some added depth.

Copic Combo : 0; N0; C5, 7; YR04, 14, 15; Y15, 17; YG06, 23; BV04, 08; E57, 59

Once I went to assemble the card, I found that the colored images were getting lost on the inked background, so I die cut stitched squares using the Slimline Frames and Windows Die Set and used them as a background instead. I almost embossed a sentiment from the same Trick or Treat Kittens stamp set on to the third square. I added the squares to the inked background and finished off the card with some jewels to match the ink colors.

Simon Says Stamp – Newton’s Nook Designs STAMPtember® 2021 Exclusive Collaboration

Hi Crafty Friends! I’m super excited to share today’s STAMPtember exclusive collaboration with Newton’s Nook Designs! The Talk Turkey is a fun stamp set that’s perfect not only for thanksgiving cards, it can be used for other projects like name card for your table setting or party favor tags!

I decided to make a ‘simple’ card today, using the loose or messy watercolor technique!

I started by stamping the smaller images from the Talk Turkey stamp set on to water color paper using versafine onyx ink. Then I used Koi Watercolors to color in the images in a messy way!

While the background was drying, I used copic markers to color in Newton, dressed as a turkey! Since this set doesn’t have dies, I fussy cut the images. I stamped a sentiment from the same Talk Turkey stamp set on to a banner cut using yellow cardstock and Newton’s Nook Designs Frames and Flags Die Set.

Once the watercolored background dried, I die cut it using the large rectangle die cut from Newton’s Nook Designs Frames and Flags Die Set. I adhered it to a Kraft A2 card and added the sentiment banner and colored image using some foam tape. Finally I added some jewels to finish off the card!

Copic Combo : N0, 6; C1, 3, 5, 7; R24, 27, 29; YR00; YR16, 18; Y15, 17; E 15, 37

I hope you like this adorable set and the card I’ve made, its my first STAMPtember card so I’m super excited! Thanks so much for stopping by today and if you like this set, grab it before it sells out! As it’s a STAMPtember exclusive and won’t be restocked!

Happy Crafting!

Fall Leaves Window Card | Newton’s Nook Designs

Happy Friday! This “short” week might have flown by, but man was it busy and stressful. Life in a pandemic, right! So glad that I have my hobby to keep me sane, and as a plus I get to work with some great companies that are super understanding of my needs and changes in schedules!

Enough about that, let’s get to the reason y’all are here! Sharing a fun window card today using a collection of old and new stamps from Newton’s Nook Designs.

To create this card, I started with a A2 top folding and die cut a circle (using the largest stitched circle from the circle frames die set) to create the window. Next I created the background or inside of the card, using the Fall Rounabout Stamp. I lined it up in my MISTI and stamped it using some brown dye ink.

Now to add details and a sentiment to the front of the card, I die cut the stitched pumpkins and leaf from the Fall Friends Die Set multiple times from green, orange and yellow cardstock. I added highlights to the die cuts using copic markers. For the sentiment I die cut the longest banner from the Banners Trio Die Set and stamped a sentiment from the Fall Rounabout Stamp on to the banner. I also trimmed off the pennant on one side of the banner as it was too long.

To finish off the card, I adhered the banner across the window, aded a few pumpkins to hide the trimmed side of the banner, and arranged the rest around the window, layering some of them.

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

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!  

Happy Crafting!

Paw-tumn is Paw-esome! | Newton’s Nook Designs

Happy Tuesday! Does it feel like Fall where you live? We are still enjoying the last days of summer, sadly there’s smoke floating around making it hazy outsides on certain days. Thankfully I have my crafty supplies to keep me busy when we can’t be outside!

Copic Marker Combos :
0; BG 11, 13; C 3, 5; E 15, 37, 42, 43, 55; R 01; Y 13, 15, 35; YG 03, 63, 67; YR 00, 15, 18

Today I created a fall themed card using mixing and matching some old and new products from Newtons Nook Designs. I started my stamping and coloring the large image from the Paw-tumn Newton stamp set, and cutting it out using the coordinating dies.

Next, I created the background by stamping the Heathfelt Fall image slightly off set on to a piece of Kraft paper (which was trimmed down to be a little smaller than an A2 card panel). I stamped the sentiment from the Paw-tumn Newton stamp set and embossed it in gold. Lastly I added a few strips of colored card stock that match the coloring to add a pop of color, along with some jewels to match.

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

Newton’s Nook Designs August Release – Day 4 – Signs of Fall + Coordinating Dies and Heartfelt Fall

Welcome back for the last day of reveal week over at Newton’s Nook Designs and I hope that y’all enjoyed all the inspiration I got to share with you this week! Today we are showcasing the Signs of Fall and coordinating dies, along with the Heartfelt Fall stamp set (that works with the Heart Frames & Banner Trio Dies). Here’s how I was inspired!

I didn’t want to take away from the beauty of today’s stamp set, so I added more to the background than layering on top!

For my first card, I started by stamping the Signs of Fall image onto Kraft paper and coloring with alcohol markers, and I cut it out using the coordinating dies.

Next I created the scene, starting with a sunset inked background, layered with some white pigment ink on the Petite Clouds stencil, once it dried, I layered a picket fence die cut, and some grass, also inked up, and finally added the Signs of Fall colored imaged with a “thank you” sentiment stamped and embossed on it.

For my second card, I started by creating a similar inked background to my card from Day 2 of Reveals, and added splatters of water and gold paint. While it dried I stamped and embossed the image from the Heartfelt Fall stamp set in gold onto vellum. Then I die cut it using the largest scallop heart from the Heart Frames Die Set. For the sentiment I die cut a banner using the Banner Trio Die Set and embossed the sentiment using white embossing powder. I finished off the card by adding some jewels.

Newton’s Nook Designs August Release – Day 3 – Fall Friends + Coordinating Dies and Heartfelt Gourds

Welcome back for day 3 of 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 Fall Friends stamp set and coordinating dies, along with the Heartfelt Gourds stamp set (that works with the Heart Frames & Banner Trio Dies). Here’s how I was inspired!

Fall is one of my favorite times of the year, mostly because I love all things pumpkin, except PSL, can’t stand that one LOL. So you can only imagine my excitement when I saw the Heartfelt Gourds stamp set!

Best things about fall crafting is pumpkins AND Kraft paper!! So of course I had to combine them both on to my first card using the Heartfelt Gourds stamp set! To create this card I started by stamping the Heartfelt Gourds image with brown ink on to craft paper using a stamp positioner. After coloring it, I stamped it again with watermark ink and embossed with gold embossing powder, and die cut it using the largest scallop heart from the Heart Frames Die Set.

I adhered it on to an A2 card front cut from pattern paper, and die cut the word “fall” from the Fall Friends coordinating die set, from the same pattern paper, along with a mini heart. I embossed the “Fall is calling” sentiment from the Heartfelt Gourds stamp set, and cut off the “fall” and trimmed it down to a strip, and added it to the card using some foam tape.

For my second card, I used the Fall Friends stamp set to create a simple scene card. Since the image from the stamp is so detailed, it’s basically as scene! I stamped it with brown ink on to some Kraft paper and colored it using alcohol markers. I stamped and embossed the sentiment from the set on to banner die cut from the Banner Trio Die Set.

I finished off the card, by creating a inked background similar to a fall sun set, and added clouds using the Petite Clouds stencil and some texture paste. Once the paste dried I added the colored image along with the sentiment banner, and a few jewels.

Newton’s Nook Designs August Release – Day 2 – Count Newton & Trick or Treat Kittens + coordinating Dies

Welcome back for day 2 of 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 Count Newton and Trick or Treat Kittens stamp set and coordinating dies. Here’s how I was inspired!

As I mentioned yesterday Halloween cards are a whole new world to me! I didn’t really know where to start but decided to have some fun and play around with colors, and love the results! More Halloween coming your way from now!

For my first card I started by creating a galaxy background on some heavy weight black cardstock using distress oxide inks, along with some metallic paints. I used a die to create windows for my scene and embossed the sentiment from the Count Newton stamp set on to one of them in gold.

Next I stamped and colored the images from the Count Newton stamp set and cut them out using the coordinating dies. I arranged them around the window on the card front, adhering them with a combination of glue and foam tape.

My second card is probably my favorite stamp from this release (you’ll be surprised that it’s not another one, once you see the whole release!). To create this card, I started by die cutting the word “BOO” from some left over galaxy paper from my first card. Then I created the background using the Candy Corn Stencil, I inked up the first two layers with pigment ink, and the last layer with some texture paste.

Next I stamped and colored all the images from the Trick or Treat Kittens stamp set and die cut them using the coordinating dies. I adhered the larger images in the free space between the “BOO” and added the extra candy images around the letters.

 Would you like to win the “Count Newton”  or the “Trick or Treat Kittens” Stamp Set? We will choose ONE lucky winner for each stamp set!

Newton’s Nook Designs August Release – Day 1 – Brooms & Boos + coordinating Dies and Candy Corn 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! It might not feel like fall outside, but it sure looks like it’s here in my craft room! Today we are showcasing the Brooms & Boos stamp set and coordinating dies & Candy Corn Stencil. Here’s how I was inspired!

This is my first time creating a Halloween card, I didn’t really know where I was going when I started making this card, but I pretty pleased with the result! I really hope that you like and are inspired by it too!

To create this card, I started by coloring two of the witches from the Brooms & Boos stamp set, using copic markers and die cut them using the coordinating dies. Next I created the background using the Bokeh Stencil Set along with a yellow, green and purple dye inks on the first layer and white pigment ink on the second layer.

I felt the witches were getting lost in the background, so I die cut little squares using the scallop square from the Slimline Frames & Window Die Set from some black cardstock that I used to create a galaxy background.

I adhered the squares to the bokeh background, embossed a sentiment in gold onto one of them, and added the witch die cuts to the other two. Lastly, I added some jewels to the card to finish it off.

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

DIY Coffee Background | Coffee Loving Cardmakers

Happy Friday! I hope that everyone had a productive week and some caffeinated crafty time to look forward to this weekend! I’m up on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog today sharing some more inspiration using one of my first and favorite coffee stamp sets from Newton’s Nook Designs, Newton Loves Coffee.

To create this card, I started by stamping some of the smaller images from Newton Loves Coffee and Cup of Cocoa, and stamped all over an A2 card front with watermark ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. Next I inked up the edges with Brushed Corduroy distress oxide ink, leaving the center white. 

Next I stamped and colored the image from Newton’s Mug with copic markers and die cut it with the coordinating die. I stamped and embossed the sentiment onto the mug, and adhered it on to the center of my DIY background card front. Finally added some jewels to finish off the card.

Be sure to stop by the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog for more caffeinated crafty inspiration! Thank you so much for stopping by today! Have a great weekend and I hope you get some crafty time!
