Pin It
Hello!!
SQUEAL!!
         I'm here with Day 4 of the 
               Newton's Nook Designs March Release 2019!! 
.       Today we're showcasing the NEW  
"Garden MiceStamp Set coordinating "Garden Mice" Die Set!! 
Let's take a look at the AWESOME New Products!!
These Images just make me SMILE and SO READY for Spring!! We spent last night without Power and this morning we're in another Blizzard, ontop of getting over 1 inch of Rain yesterday and Snow last night with winds of 70 mph!! 
Did I mention I'm READY for SPRING!!?? 
So for my Card today I've used the SWEET Mouse with the Mushroom!! I wanted to create a scene so I Stamped and Embossed the Image and then colored them with Copic Markers!! I also used the Butterfly from the Bitty Bunnies Stamp Set and the Flowers are from the Woodland Spring Stamp Set to add to my Scene!! I then worked on my Background!! I used some Tumbled Glass Distress Ink to add some color right behind where my Images would be for that haze look!! I used the Framework Die Set to create a Black Frame to make the Scene POP!! For the Grass and Mini Mushroom border I used a Lawn Fawn Die Set!! I paper pieced the Mushrooms so they'd match with my Mushroom in the Image and I LOVE how it turned out!! I added some Aged Mahogany Distress Ink to the Mushroom tops for some Texture and then I used Gathered Twigs Distress Ink for the Kraft Bases!! I Die Cut the Grass and added Peeled Paint and Gathered Twigs to the Grass for some dimension!! Some Morning Dew Nuvo Drops were added to all of the Mushroom Dots and I even added it to the Flower centers!! I Stamped and Embossed the Sentiment onto the Grass and my Card was ready to assemble!! 
 I used Foam Tape to adhere the Mouse Image and one of the Flowers!! Then I adhered just the center of the Butterfly so I could POP the wings up as if it were Flying!! Some Black Nuvo Drops were added to the Mouse's Nose and then I used a Black and White Gel pen to add some extra touches!! Hope you LOVE it as much as I do!!?? I CAN'T WAIT to see what you create with this SWEET Set!!

Paper Sweeties March Release 2019 Sneak Peeks!! =)

Pin It
HELLO CRAFTY FRIENDS!!

Welcome to Day 1 of the Paper Sweeties 
March Release 2019 Sneak Peeks!
I created a SWEET Gift Tag using a *NEW* stamp set called "Get Well" and coordinating "Get Well" Sweet Cuts die set which will be live in the Paper Sweeties shop TOMORROW!!
I Started by Die Cutting the For You Stitched Tag from some Distress Watercolor Paper!! I inked the Background of the Tag with some Maliblue SSS Ink!! It's REALLY light, but in real life its really striking against the Black and Red!! Then I Stamped and Embossed the "Get Well" Sentiment onto the Gift Tag using Vera Fine Black Onyx Ink and WoW Clear Detailed Embossing Powder!! I adhered it to a Gift Bag with a Red Mini Clothes Pin and added a Strawberry Seam Binding Bow to finish it off!! I LOVE the FONT and think it really BEAUTIFUL!! I makes the PERFECT Focal Point all on its own!!

Newton's Nook Designs March Release ~ Newton's Block Party & Frames Squared Die Set!! =)

Pin It
Hello!!
SQUEAL!!
         I'm here with Day 3 of the 
               Newton's Nook Designs March Release 2019!! 
.       Today we're showcasing the NEW  
"Newton's Block PartyStamp Set + coordinating "Frames SquaredDie Set!! 
Let's take a look at the AWESOME New Products!!
I wanted to make a FUN Balloon Shaped Shaker Window for this Card using the Kitties Paw as if he was holding onto it!! EEEKKK!! I LOVE how it turned out!! I used the Large Circle Die from the NEW Frames Squared Die Set and then backed it with a piece of Red Therm O Web Foil that I foiled onto a piece  of Deco Foil Toner Sheets!! I Stamped and Embossed the sentiment onto the Foil using White Embossing Powder!! Once in awhile the Foil will get how and boil up alittle, exposing the Toner sheet under neath!! For this project it didn't bother me as I kinda liked the look of a textured Balloon!! In order to make sure that the Seed Beads, Sequins and Mini Star Confetti didn't bother the rest of the Foil though, I went ahead and used my Versa Mark Ink Pad and applied Versa Mark over the entire Foiled piece and then added some WoW Clear Embossing Powder and heat to melt it!! I repeated this step 3 times and  it really gives it the look of a REAL Balloon!! I LOVE it!! Then I added my Acetate Sheet and my Double Sided Foam Adhesive Sheet that I cut to create my Shaker!! 
I added some Pretty Pink Posh Aquamarine Seed Beads, Silver Mini Star Confetti and 3mm Sparkling Clear Sequins!! Then added a Twine Bow to the bottom of the Circle for the Balloon String to appear in the Kitties paw!! For the Card Base I used the NND Petite Snow Stencil and Candied Apple and Tumbled Glass Distress Inks to Ink the Confetti!! I chose to ink RANDOM parts and then adhered some Silver Mini Confetti pieces randomly on the Card Base too!! I finish it off I stamped and embossed the second Sentiment "Cue the Confetti" from the NND Birthday Essentials Stamp Set!!  
I left this photo "DARK" so you could see the Mini Star Confetti scattered around the Card Base better!! It's hard to photograph, but hopefully you can see it!!?? 
I LOVE the way it turned out and hope you feel INSPIRED!!??
