Pin It
Hello!!
SQUEAL!!
         I'm here with Day 4 of the Newton's Nook Designs November Release!! 
       Today we're showcasing the NEW  
"Snowman Party" Stamp Set!! 
Let's take a look at the AWESOME New Set!!
I'm a HUGE LOVER of ALL things Snowman!! So this NEW "Snowman Party" Stamp Set just makes me HAPPY!! I wanted to show that you can create with this set even if coloring isn't your FAVORITE thing!! I LOVE the variety of Sentiments in this Set too!! I wanted to use the "Chillin' with my Snowmies" Sentiment and wanted to create a Heart Window!! I Stamped and Embossed the Image and then Die Cut it out using the coordinating NND Frames Squared Stamp Set!! Then I Die Cut the Heart Window from the center of the Design!! I wanted the Heart to be FUZZY so I used some NEW Therm O Web Deco Foil Flock Sheets in Ruby Red and Inked with some Mahogany and Candied Apple Distress Oxide Inks for some shading then to stamp the Sentiment I used the NEW Stazon Snowflake Pigment Ink!! I LOVE the Look and I think for Surfaces like the Flock Sheets its going to be my new go to!! 
I backed the Stamped Image with some Black Cardstock and then Die Cut the NND Frames Squared Stamp Set from some Lawn Fawn Patterned Papers!! I used some Foam Tape to adhere the Scalloped Square Frame and adhered it to a Square Cardbase also Die Cut using the Large Square Die!! A tiny Clay Snowflake was added to the Heart to finish off the Design!! 
For my second Card I wanted to show what the same Design would look like only with the Image Colored in!! I LOVE to color and I LOVE that there are SO MANY Color Combination you could use while Coloring this SWEET Image in!! I used (Teal: BG10, BG45 & BG49  Red: R43, R46 & R89 Orange: YR00 & YR68  Black: N2, N4 & N8  Shadows: N0 & N2  Cheeks: R00  Background: BG000 & BG10) I finished off the Design with White Gel Pen Details, Black Glaze Pen Details for the Eyes and Buttons and Nuvo Drops in Morning Dew for the Carrot Noses and Blizzard Glitter Drops for the Hat Rims and Tops!! I also added Glitter Pen to ALL of the Hats and Scarves and the Red Bands on the Black Hats!! I just LOVE the addition of LOTS of Sparkle and Shine!!

Pin It

HELLO CRAFTY FRIENDS!! 
I'm back with another Card using some Newton's Nook Designs Products!! They're GENEROUS Sponsors for the Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop that ends tonight at 11:55 PST!! 
Here's what I've created for today!! 
I wanted to share another idea on how to use those AMAZING NND 4x6 Stamp Set!! Today I'm using the Caffeinated Cats Stamp Set!! 
I wanted to share how you can use this Image to Die Cut any Shape!! I thought this Coffee Die was PERFECT!!  Whether you use a Die Cut Window over the Image, or just Die Cut the Image there are SO many possibilities!! I then used Copic Markers to color the Image in a Brown Color Tone (I used Coffee Cup: E31, E33, E37 and E39) then wanted to add the Sunflower Stamp to help ground the Coffee Cup!! (I used Sunflowers: Y11, Y19 & YR23  E44, E47 & E49 Greenery: YG61, YG63 & YG67) 

I Stamped and Embossed the Sentiment from the Newton Loves Coffee Stamp Set!! Then I coated the center of the Sunflowers with some Nuvo Drops and added some Gold Pretty Pink Posh Jewels to finish off the Design!! I Die Cut a Kraft Frame from the NND Framework Die Set and adhered it to my A2 Card Base!! 

I hope I've INSPIRED you and that you're eager to Hop along and JOIN in on the FUN!! 
THANKS SO MUCH for stopping by today and 
I hope you have a FABULOUS WEEK!!

Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop w/ Paper Smooches & Therm O Web!!

Pin It
HELLO CRAFTY FRIENDS!! 
I'm back with a couple Cards using some Paper Smooches and Therm O Web Products!! Both of these Companies are GENEROUS Sponsors for the Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop that ends tomorrow at 11:55 PST!! 
Here's what I've created for today!! 
SQUEAL!! How CUTE is this Lil' Guy!!?? When I saw the NEW Caffeinated Stamp Set I KNEW I wanted to create a Rudolph!! I started by Stamped and Embossed the Image and then Stamped and Embossed the Glasses/Face Images and Colored it with Copic Markers!! (Cozy: E42, E43, E44 & E47  Cheeks: RV11  Glasses: BG10  Cup & Lid: W0, W2 & W5) I Fussy Cut the Image and added some White Gel Pen Details and a Red Pom-Pom for the Nose!! I knew I wanted to Dress him up so I used the Reindeer Die Set and Die Cut the Antlers and the Ears!! I Colored them with Copic Markers to match the Cup/Body using the same Copic Markers listed above!! I also wanted to add a FUN Stocking Cap so I die Cut some Pattern Paper using a Discontinued Die, but the Stocking Hat from the Snowman 2 Die Set would also work!! I added a Gold Jingle Bell for the Top!! How CUTE is he!!?? I just CAN'T stop SMILING!! 😍 I wanted to use the NEW Joy Dies for part of my sentiment and I Die Cut them from some Pattern Paper and then backed them with Black Cardstock!! I Stamped and Embossed the "bursting with" Sentiment from the NEW Spreading Joy Stamp Set and then inked with some Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink to tie in with my Background Spotlight!! 

To help Ground the Scene I created a Circle Masked Panel and Inked with Distress Oxide Ink in Tumbled Glass and then added some Water Splatters for some texture resembling Falling Snow!! I wanted to help ground the Scene by adding some Greenery using the NEW Laurels Die Set and then I Die Cut a Small Poinsettia using the Poinsettia Die Set from some Therm O Web Deco Foil Ruby Red Flocking Sheets that I adhered to some Red Cardstoock with some Easy Cut Adhesive Sheets!! I inked the edges with some Aged Mahogany Distress Oxide Ink and added a Gold Jewel for the center!! I LOVE the way it looks in real life!! Just like a REAL Poinsettia!! For the Gift Tag I Stamped and Embossed the Image from the Crystal Clear Stamp Set and Stamped and Embossed the Sentiment "For You" from the Enchanted Elves Stamp Set using some WoW Embossing Gold Pearl Glitter Embossing Powder and then Fussy Cut it out and added a Burlap Twine Bow!! I think it just really adds to the Image and finished off the Sentiment I had in mind "Bursting with Joy for You"!! 

I hope I've given you some ideas on ways to mix and match your Older Paper Smooches Stamp/Die Sets with some of the NEW Paper Smooches Stamp/Die Sets to create some projects SURE to bring a SMILE this Holiday Season!! 

For my last Card I wanted to use some Therm O Web Iridescent Deco Foil to create a really SWEET Card to send to a Friend!! I created my Circle Masked Background first by Inking with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink and then I added Water Splatters for some texture!! Then I Die Cut the Cup from the Cuppa Sunshine Die Set, once from White and once from TE Cupcake Cardstock!! I used Copic Markers to Color in the Die Cuts and I LOVE the MANY options you have for customizing this Die for your Projects!! I wanted to add a Sweet Face to my Sun so I Die Cut the Eyelashes and Mouth from the Sunny Die Set and the Glasses also from that set from some Therm O Web Toner Sheets that I foiled with the Iridescent Deco Foil!! I also wanted to Foil part of my Sentiment so I Stamped and Embossed the "Hello" Sentiment from the Caffeinated Stamp Set and ran it through my Laminating machine with some Iridescent Deco Foil on top!! I LOVE the way it looks!! Then I Stamped and Embossed the other sentiment underneath from the NEW Caffeinated Stamp Set!!  

I wanted to add some extra Cloud Images to help ground the Image so I Die Cut a couple extra Clouds using the Cute Cloud Die Set!! I inked the edges to add some texture using N0 and N2 Copic Markers!! I added some Clay Hearts that I colored with my Copic Markers to Match and then I adhered the Panel onto a scalloped Die Cut Deco Foil Toner Sheets that was Foiled with Iridescent Deco Foil!! I think it finished off the entire design and in Real Life the Iridescent Shine just really makes this Card SHINE!!

I hope I've INSPIRED you and that you're eager to Hop along and JOIN in on the FUN!!

I hope you have a FABULOUS WEEK!!

Hello Crafty Friends!!
I'm here with Newton's Nook Designs sharing a couple SWEET Tags FULL of Texture and Sparkle as part of the 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2019 hosted by Tracy McNeely!! 
I LOVE these Images from the NEW Christmas Trimmings Stamp Set!! I Started by Stamping and Embossing the Images!! I colored them with Copic Markers!! Then Die Cut them out using the coordinating Christmas Trimmings Dies!! I used Morning Dew Nuvo Drops and Shimmer Pen to add Dimension and Shine to several parts of the images!! The Light Bulbs, Bows, Shoes, Ornaments, the Scissors!! Just finishes off the Images!! For the Tags I used the NND Fancy Edges Tag Die Set!! I Die Cut some White Cardstock and the Die Cut another from some Pattern Paper!! I also Die Cut the Hole Reinforcer from some Patterned Paper to add even more FUN to the Tags!! In order to GROUND the Imaged onto my Tags I create a Circle Mask from some Cardstock (I keep these in my Stash and use them ALL the time, their EASY to grab and use whenever I need them) I placed the Mask over the Tag and used Purple Tape to hold it in place while I inked with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink!! Then I placed the NND Snowfall Stencil over the top of the Mask and used some Peacock Distress Oxide Ink to add the Snowflakes!! I then removed the Stencil and went back over with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink and blended it out alittle!! I added some Water Splatters and let it dry!! Then used Foam Tape to adhere the Images once the Tag was Dry!! I just LOVE the way they turned out!! 
I then added the Tags to some Gift Bags using Mini White Clothes Pins and added a FUN Ribbon Scrap Bow to finish it off!! SURE to bring a SMILE to any recipient this Holiday Season as a Birthday Gift or Holiday Gift!! So many possibilities!! 


These are such FUN and EASY Tags to create!! I hope I've INSPIRED you to create some Tags of your own for those Holiday Gifts!!??  THANKS SO MUCH for stopping by and I hope you have a FABULOUS WEEK!!
