Newton’s Nook Designs February Release – Day 4 – Newton’s Rainy Day Trio and Daffodils + coordinating Dies

Welcome back for Day 3 of reveal week at Newton’s Nook Designs. Today we are showcasing the Rainy Day Trio and Daffodils stamp set and coordinating Dies. Here’s how I was inspired.

Save the best for last, right! These two sets are my favorite from the release!

For my first card, I made a slimline card using the new Daffodils stamp set. I colored them using copic markers and die cut them. Then using the Slimline Frames & Portholes Die Set and Slimline Frames & Windows Die Set, I die cut a white scalloped rectangle along with squares out of green pattern paper. For the center of the card, before stamping the sentiment, I layered the Slimline Masking Circles & Squares Stencil Set along with the Petite Flowers Stencil and inked it up with some yellow ink. Lastly, I added the daffodils with some foam tape and a few sequins.

For my second card, I colored the Newton’s Rainy Day Trio stamp set using zig real brush markers in a rainbow manner, die cut and set it aside. To create the background, I started by embossing a light blue piece of cardstock using the Raindrops Stencil, then I used the same stencil to ink up a piece of vellum with blue pigment ink and quickly added glitter embossing powder before the ink dried. I embossed the sentiment and die cut the vellum using a scalloped circle from the Circle Frames Die Set.

Snowball Fight | Evelin T Designs

Happy Friday! For the first time in a long time I have a to do list for today including writing up a bunch of blogpost cause I’ve got a ton of fun stuff to share next week! Stay tuned for lots of cute inspiration! Speaking of cute, how adorable are these little critters from Evelin T Designs!

I colored the two little animals from the Baby, it’s Cold Outside stamp set with Zig Real Brush Markers and fussy cut them. To create the scene, I die cut both the scallop and the stitched rectangle along with the hill from the Slim Card Basics Creative Cuts. I stamped and embossed the entire stitched rectangle with the snowflake image with white embossing powder. Then I ink blended over it using some distress oxide ink in Tumbled Glass. Lastly I smooshed some glue on to the ‘hill’ piece and covered it with chunky glitter after stamping the sentiment from the same stamp set.

To assemble the card, I layered the die cuts, with some foam under the hill to add dimension. Then added the critters along with their snowballs (that I covered with glossy accents after sticking them to the card).

I hope this inspires you to create more thank just holiday card with our winter stamps! This card is part of my #ammismakecards on Instagram, be sure to hop on over and see what my friends have made with me!

(this card was originally created for Create and Inkspire)

Angie Blom Designs

Using Digital ‘Card Kits’ (with AngelicaBoom Designs)

Have y’all jumped on the digital stamps band wagon yet? I discovered them at the start of quarantine back in March, and never turned back! It’s cheap, need no storage space, and it’s instant download so no wait time! So my collection has been growing, AND there are companies with freebies too! I just found a bunch, so will be sharing them when I get a chance!

I made these two cards using stamps from Angie Blom Digital Designs, and I didn’t have to edit or resize! I just printed, colored and trimmed them down before adhering them to a card base! How you ask? Cause Angie is the smartest and she sells you the images along with ‘kits’. They come in slim line and A2 size card fronts! They are perfect for taking on vacation, and coloring on the go, but who knows when that will happen again!

I printed the images on to Heavy weight white cardstock, then colored with Copic Markers. I foiled the sentiment, and then trimmed the image down using the Slim cut basic creative cuts from Mama Elephant. Lastly I adhered them to the Neenah dessert storm slim line card bases.

As always thanks for stopping by and here is a list of products I used :

BRI Mood Board, Butterfly Reflections Ink, Pretty Pink Posh

Toucan card inspired by the August 2020 BRI mood board (with Pretty Pink Posh)

Whoa, looks who back again, twice on the same day! A friend recently mentioned to me that she is “stress hiking”, I think I am stress crafting/blogging, I set a goal for myself to make/share 31 cards in August, and I already have enough to share and there a few days left in the month! Now I have to sit down and write the posts! This is the last card I made inspired by the Butterfly Reflections Ink August mood board, can’t wait to see what is in store for next month!

This picture was inspired by both the colors and the images in the mood board and I wanted to give a “scene card” another try. Believe it or not, this stamp set is from last summer and I just inked it up, at least my plan of using my BRAND NEW stamps is going well! I probably have enough to last me years!

I started this card by diecutting the two frame dies from a slimline die set, along with windows on the smaller frame. Then I inked the edges of the larger frame with Twisted Citron, and along inking up the window opening using the Tropical Background Stencil. I lighting inked the inner frame with the windows using Broken China.

Next, I stamped all the images from the Tropical Toucans Stamp Set, and colored them using Chameleon Color Tone Colored Pencils (colors listed below), and die cut them using the coordinating dies. Using foam tape for added dimension, I adhered the toucans and the branches through the window opening on the inner frame. Lastly, I embossed a sentiment from the Everyday Greetings Stamp Set with white onto black cardstock, and trimmed to make it look like it was die cut!

Chameleon Color Tones Pencils : 3, 4, 11, 16, 19, 20, 21, 25

Peony Slimline (with Evelin T Designs)

Welcome back! Hope y’all had a great weekend! It sure was HOT here in Seattle! Thank God for AC and craft time! My new obsession is digital stamps! I love that they are way more affordable, can be resized, foiled and there’s no shipping time! Win-Win- and so many more wins!

For today’s card I used the With Love, Peonies from Evelin T Designs. I resized the image and printed two of them on the same sheet to be able to create a slimline card front.

Copic Combos : RV 63 – 66 – 69 and YG 67 – 63 – G 21

I colored the peony images using the copic combos list above, then die cut using a slim line die. Then I added a die cut sentiment, cut from golden card stock and stacked with regular cardstock for added dimension. I finished the card by adhering the card panel on to a kraft card base.

Can’t wait to use this image again! What’s your favorite digital stamp? Let me know in the comments below!

Slimline and Shakers (with Joy Clair Designs)

Plans for the weekend? I’m hoping that I can squeeze in some uninterrupted TV time, given the pandemic, it’s a lot to ask! But fortunately I’ve been able to craft, even if it takes me 3 days to make one card! What are you doing to stay grounded through all that is happening in the world?

With the God Guides stamp set from Joy Clair Designs I made two (kind of coordinating) cards. First, I started by resizing and printing one of the floral images from the stamp set 5 times. Twice sized into a 8.5 x 3.5 layout so that I could trim it down to make a slim line card front.

Copic Color Combos : V 17-15-12, V 25-22-20, YG 67-63-G 21, G 99-94-YG 03; Distress Oxide in Seedless Preserves for Ink Blending

For the slimline card, as I mentioned above, I arranged the images from the God Guides stamp set in such a way that I was able to trim it down to a 3.5 x 8.5 slim line card front. After printing and die cutting the panel, I colored the image using copic makers, color combo’s listed above.

In addition, I also colored an additional pair of the larger flower, which I then fussy cut and adhered to the card front using crafty foam tape for some added dimension. (unfortunately not very visible in the picture!).

To finish off  the card I used a sentiment stacked sentiment die cut, cut from some ink blended card stock to match the copic colored flowers.

Copic Color Combos : RV 69-66-63, V 25-22-20, YG 67-63-G 21, G 99-94-YG 03; Distress Oxide in Seedless Preserves for Ink Blending

For my second card, I created a shaker card using the same image from the God Guides stamp set. This time after coloring (again with copics, color combos are listed above), I fussy cut the whole image, then die cut a shaker sentiment, adhered it to some acetate and added crafty foam tape for dimension.

Before adding the shaker element to the card base, I ink blended part of it to make the white die cut pop. I filled the shaker with sequins from my stash, and lastly adhered my fussy cut floral image using some foam tape.

inky paws challenge, Newtons Nook Designs

Inky Paws Challenge #129

Hey there! Popping in with a short post for the Inky Paws Challenge! I’ve been using the challenge ideas to create, just don’t finish my projects in time to share with y’all. #momlife But I think I’m slowly getting into the grove of things and *fingers crossed* will be sharing more frequently now!

For the first card I used two (retired) stamp sets from way back in 2014! Yes, I have been a fan of Newton’s Nook Designs for a really long time! It’s been a while since I have updated my stash from them, my wish list only gets longer!

Copic Combos : R29-27-24, YG63-G21, G99-94-YG03

I wasn’t entirely pleased with the result but I figured I’d still share it (and then I got a ton of love for it on instagram and figured it’s worth it to type up a blogpost for!) To create the card, I started by stamping the larger floral image and the leaves from the Love Grows stamp set multiple times with copic friendly ink, then I colored (color combo listed above) and fussy cut them. For the background I die cut a panel using a slimline stitched frame, stamped and embossed the vine image from the Love Grows stamp set in white, and then ink blended over it. Finally I used words from the Simply Sentimental stamp set to emboss the sentiment on to black card stock. I assembled the card using some foam tape for the flowers and sentiment to add dimension.

For the second card, I used my current favorite stamp from Newton’s Nook Designs, Happy Little Thoughts.

Copic Combos : YR 12-15, R 14-24, RV 63-66, V 12-15, RV 09, YG 01-03, Y 11-15, B 21-24

I started by stamping the floral image from the Happy Little Thoughts with brown copic friendly ink on to kraft card stock, three times. Then I colored them using copics (color combos listed above). To finish off the card, I embossed a sentiment in the center with gold embossing power, and die cut the panel with a slim line die before adhering it on to a card base.

Neat and Tangled

Sunflower Slimline card (with Neat and Tangled)

Hey there! Today’s card is a slimline card, anyone else enjoying the new trend? I sure am and have a long list of dies I really want to get! What’s your favorite slimline die or what’s on your list? Let me know in the comments below.

Now on to the card that I made. I started by stamping the Heartfelt Thanks stamp set from Neat and Tangled on to some heavy weight white copic friendly card stock (now that’s a mouth full!) with copic friendly black ink. I used my Misti to stamp the image, flipping the paper around to stamp on both ends.

Copic Combo’s used : YG 06 – 03, YG 67 – 63 – 23, E 37 – 15 – 13, Y 35 – 15 – 13 – 11, YR 18 – 15 – Y15

Then I colored the images using the copic combos listed above and trimmed the panel down to fit on a 3.5 x 8.5 slim line card base (I used neenah dessert storm). To finish the card, I used a banner die cut, stamped and embossed a sentiment from the same Heartfelt Thanks stamp, and ink blending the die cut to match the flowers. I adhered the diecut using some foam tape for dimension, finally adding some nuvo drops to finish of the card.
