Newton's Nook Designs January Release 2020 ~ Newton's Valentine & Newton's Crafty Cardio!!

Pin It

Hello!!
SQUEAL!!
         I'm here with Day 4 of the Newton's Nook Designs January Release!! 
       Today we're showcasing the NEW Newton's Valentine Stamp Set and the "Newton's Crafty Cardio" Stamp Set + coordinating Dies!! 
Let's take a look at the AWESOME New Sets!!
How FUN are these NEW Sets!!?? I'm just in LOVE and here's what I've Created!! 
 I knew I wanted to create a Scene with the Type Writer from the NND My Type Stamp Set along with the Lovely Blooms Stamp Set and the Mother's Day Stamp Set!! I started by Stamping the Mother's Day Stamp Set Image onto my Card Panel towards the bottom 1/3 of the Card!! I then Inked with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink and added some Water Splatters for some texture!! I Stamped and Embossed all of the other Images and colored them all in using Copic Markers!! 
(Type Writer: BG10, BG45, BG49, N0, N2 & N4   Newton: E40, E43, E47 & E99  Cheeks/Inside Ears/Paw Pads: R00  Heart: R43, R46 & R89  Bird: BG10, BG45, BG48, Y11, YR23, YR00 & YR68  Flowers: Y11, Y15 & YR23   YR00, YR02 & YR68   RV00, RV02 & RV09   R43, R46 & R89  Greenery: YG60, YG63 & YG67  YG03, YG17 & YG25  G00, G05 & G17)
After everything was colored I used the coordinating Dies to Die Cut them out!! My Type Die Set, Lovely Blooms Die Set and the NEW Newton's Valentine Die Set!! I Stamped and Embossed the Sentiment onto the Type Writer using WoW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder and Red Glitz Glitter Embossing Powder!! 
I used iCraft 3-D Foam Squares to POP up the Type Writer towards the top of the Mother's Day Image and then I placed the Newton's Valentine Image also using 3-D Foam Squares right below the Type Writer and then used the Flowers (both styles from the NEW Set) and some others from the Lovely Blooms Set and placed them around until I got the placement that I liked!! I tried to keep a Visual Triangle in mind and I just LOVE the way that it turned out!! I wanted some Sparkle so I added some Tonic Studios Glitter Drops to the center of each Flower and I also added a scattering of Pretty Pink Iridescent Jewels!! White Pen Details add some Highlights to finish off the Design!! 
For my Second Card I used the AWESOME NEW Newton's Crafty Cardio Stamp Set along with the NND Bubbly Stencil and the Speech Bubbles Die Set!! I Stamped and Embossed the Images and colored them in with Copic Markers!! I Die Cut them using the coordinating Dies and then I used the Stencil and some Purple Tape to mask off areas for just hints of Color using Distress Inks in Candied Apple, Mustard Seed, Carved Pumpkin, Mowed Lawn, Peacock Feathers and Wilted Violet!! I also added some Black Soot Distress Paint Splatters for even more texture!! 

I used my Distress Markers (same colors that I inked with) to Color the "Crafting" Word in the sentiment and Huffed on the stamp and stamped!! I repeated the process twice and then stamped the rest of the sentiment in Black and Embossed everything using WoW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder!! I added White Gel Pen Details, and some Morning Dew Nuvo Drops to the Paints and the Paint on the Brushes for even more dimension and shine!! I added the panel to a NND Frames & Flags Scalloped Frame Die Cut from some TE Oreo Cardstock!! I LOVE the way it turned out, and I can't wait to send it to a Crafty Friend!!

Newton's Nook Designs January Release 2020 ~ Puppy Playtime!!

Pin It

Hello!!
SQUEAL!!
         I'm here with Day 3 of the Newton's Nook Designs January Release!! 
       Today we're showcasing the NEW Puppy Playtime Stamp Set + coordinating "Puppy Playtime" Dies!! 
Let's take a look at the AWESOME New Set!!
 I also chose to use the NEW Bokeh Heart Stencil which was showcased on day 1, but just incase you missed it here's a look at this SWEET New Layered Stencil Design!! 
I LOVE these SWEET Puppy Images and I knew I wanted to color them to look like our beloved Stella!! So I Stamped and Embossed the Images using Versa Fine Black Onyx Ink and WoW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder!! I used Copic Markers to Color the Images using Dogs: N0, N2, N4 and N8  Red: R43, R46 & R89  Turquoise: BG10, Bg45 & BG49  Bones: W2 & W4 
I used the coordinating Dies to Die Cut the Images out and then added some White Gel Pen Details!! I LOVE the way they make them come to life!! 
For the Card Panel I started by masking off the Ground using the Spraying the back of the Stencil with Therm O Web Pixie Spray and adhered it to my Card Panel!! Then I used Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink and applied a light layer!! I removed the Stencil and applied the Second Layer over the top lining up the etched design with the lightly inked design!! I Inked the second layer again with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink, only applying it with a heavier hand!! I just LOVE the way it turned out!! I added some Water Splatters and then let it dry!! I wanted to Emboss my Sentiment so I used Versa Fine Black Onyx Ink and masked off the work "Puppy" with some Purple Tape!! Stamped the sentiment and used WoW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder!! Then I masked off everything but the "Puppy" and Stamped it with Versa Mark Ink and Embossed using WoW Red Glitz Glitter Embossing Powder!! I heat Set it and I just LOVE the way the sentiment POPS off the Card!! I adhered the Images using iCraft 3-D Foam Squares and added my NND Framework Frame in Oreo TE Cardstock to Panel and my Card was done!! 
This would be a PERFECT Masculine style Card for any occasion just by changing the sentiment for whatever card you needed!! 
Would you like to win the “Puppy PlaytimeStamp Set!!?? 
This stamp set will be given away to ONE lucky winner!!

Newton's Nook Designs January Release 2020 ~ Love Quarry!!

Pin It
Hello!!
SQUEAL!!
         I'm here with Day 2 of the Newton's Nook Designs January Release!! 
       Today we're showcasing the NEW Love Quarry Stamp Set + coordinating "Love Quarry" Dies!! 
Let's take a look at the AWESOME New Set!!
As soon as Greyson and I Saw this Set we KNEW he wanted to use it to make his Valentine's for his Classmates!! So I went on Line and found some of the FUNNEST Items to use and it makes these not only EASY and QUICK to make, but also a SPECIAL Personalized Valentine Gift from Greyson!! 
I Started by Stamping and Embossing my Images onto Tim Holtz Distress Water Color Paper using Versa Fine Black Onyx Ink and WoW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder!! I then used my Copic Markers to color them in!! I use Truck Bodies/Hearts: Y11, Y15 & Y23  Truck Cabs: R43, R46 & R89 Windows: BG0000, BG11  Wheels/Frames: N0, N2, N4 & N8  Pink Hears: RV02, RV09 & RV19
I then used the cordniating Dies to Die Cut them out!!
For the Bases I wanted to create an opening in order to slip the Suckers, Pencils and the Slap Bracelets into, so I used the Frames & Flags Die Set to create my Bases!! I used a mixture of White 110 lbs. and Chalkboard Pattern Paper that I backed with White Cardstock for some added weight!! I used the Dies to judge the placement of each of the Truck with the Suckers and ran them through my Die Cut Machine and just cut the Top and Bottom edges, leaving the side adhered so I'd have a Slot by using the Tim Holtz Dimensional Cutting Plate!! 
Tim Holtz Sizzix DIMENSIONAL CUTTING PAD 656498 Preview Image
Then I adhered the Images over the Die Cut Opening and you have a Decorative Slot to tuck the Goodies behind!! It's such an EASY process using the Plate, but you can also do the same technique just by running it through twice making sure just to Cut the Top and Bottom edges of the Images!! 
I found all of the AMAZING Goodies through a Nebraska Store called Oriental Trading!! They even ship through Amazon, so if you see something you like I hope you'll check them out!! The Suckers were SO EASY to create just by uploading the Image and the stickers are Printed Vinyl which means they can keep them if they choose!! Here's a LINK for the Construction Goodies they Carry!! I'm ALWAYS IMPRESSED with their shipping as well, usually FREE and I got this order in 3 Days!! WHOOP WHOOP!! I hope I've INSPIRED you today and I already know these are going to be a HUGE HIT with Greyson's Classmates this Valentine's Day!! Infact I'm pretty sure he's already shared what we've made and they're just counting down the days until they get them!! Makes my HEART SO FULL!! ๐Ÿ’“
Would you like to win the “Love Quarry Stamp Set!!?? 
This stamp set will be given away to ONE lucky winner!!

Winter is Warmer Together w/ Newton's Nook Designs!!

Pin It
HELLO CRAFTY FRIENDS!! 

Winter is in FULL Swing on our Farm and Snowmen are my Jam, so I HAD to use that cute group of snowmen from the Frosty Folks Stamp Set and coloring their accessories using a gorgeous Mint Green and Mauve color palette!! I added some Iridescent Blizzard Nuvo Drops to the Brims and Pom-poms on the Hats for some sparkle, Morning Dew Nuvo Drops for the Carrot Noses and the Band on the Top Hat for some Dimension and white gel pen accents too!! The image was cut out using the Frosty Folks Die Set and then layered over a snowy background using Gina K Designs Foam Tape!!

The lovely snow was created using the Snowfall Stencil onto a stitched rectangle that was cut out using the Frames & Flags Die Set. The whole scene is framed with a fun postage edged background using houndstooth patterned paper that I Inked up with some Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide Ink to got with the Color Pallet using the Frameworks Die Set.
These snowmen look so cozy together, and I LOVE that they coordinate as if they were posing for a Family Picture!! Yep, I'm that Mom that like to have everyone coordinate!! ๐Ÿ˜œ

THANKS SO MUCH for stopping by and I hope you have a FABULOUS WEEK!! I'm at CREATIVATION, so I'm SURE I'm having a BLAST!! HUGE HUGS from PHOENIX!!

Here's my Project for today!!
I Started by Die Cutting the Scalloped Doily Heart from the With Love Die Set from some Red Cardstock!! Then I Die Cut it again form some White Cardstock for the center of the Heart!! I wanted to Stamp the Sentiment from the I'm So Proud of you Stamp Set!! I used Purple Tape to Tape off the "BEST" part of the Sentiment and embossed it with some WoW Red Glitz Embossing Powder!! 

I stamped and Embossed the Images also from the I'm So Proud of you Stamp Set!! I used Copic Markers to color them in and then added Glitter Pen and White Gel Pen to the Images to help make them POP!! I layered them altogether onto the Heart and then Stamped and Embossed the Apple Image from the Planner Series: All Occasion Stamp Set!! I Colored it in with Copic Markers and then used the coordinating Die to Die Cut the Apple Image!! Then added it to my Card to finish it all off!! 

LOVE the way it turned out and hope I've given you some Ideas on ways to create some SWEET Teacher Cards for some of those Gifts you may need to give!!
