Happy Meowr

 

 

Hello Everyone!

Up on the Newton’s Nook block today with this fun summer card.


 

For this card I used

Newton’s Happy Meowr

lSunscape Stencil

Sea Boarders Die

Frames Squared

Banner Duo Die Set

To start this card, I pulled out the Sunscape stencil.

I decided on using Distress Oxide in Scattered Straw and Carved Pumpkin.

In my usual manner I just stenciled everything in until I liked the way it looked.



Once my sun was stenciled in. I put my paper aside to dry.

Next, I turned my attention to the images from Newton Happy Meowr

I colored my images in using Blues and turquoise to pop in front of all that sunshine.

To assemble my card, I created a base from the Frame Squared Die Set and Neenah Desert Storm card stock.

I created sand at the bottom using the Sea Borders Die

I used Neenah Desert Storm card stock with a bit of Gathered Twigs Distress Ink splashed on.

I just wanted to see just the edge of the scallops

 out on the front of the card so I did end up using

 a square die from my stash for the card front.

I die cut out everything from my card front and attached it to my base.

I placed my sunny background down 1st, and then my die cut sand on top

I placed my images on the card, next popping some of them up with foam tape.

I also created a sentiment banner using the Banner Duo Die Set.



To finish this card, I added Stickles to the sun and anywhere blue.

I hope you get to try this card for yourself!

 Thanks for stopping by

  Hope you have an awesome day

 Stay crafty my friends!

Cats and Coffee

 

Hello Everyone!

I hope the day is treating you well.

I have a fun card to share with you here on the blog!

 

For this card I used

Caffeinated cats

 Time for Coffee (sentiment)

Bright Basics Paper Pad

Frames and Flags Die Set

Basic Frames Die Set

Banner Duo Die Set

Cats and coffee my two of my favorite things!

I started this card with the Bright Basics Paper Pad

 I selected the blue card stock with white hearts.

Since this stamp is going to take up most of the card front,

 I just wanted a hint of something cute in the background.

I cut out the card stock with the largest stitched rectangle die from the Basic Frames Die Set.

I also used white card stock to cut out the largest scalloped

rectangle die from The Frames and Flags Die Set.



These two dies fit perfectly together and make the cutest card front !

I created a card base using matching cardstock and then layered my two die cut layers on top.

I then stamped out Caffeinated Cats.

I chose my favorite bold Marker colors and colored in the image.



I just love these large stamps; it is so therapeutic to color everything in.

Once my coloring was done, I fussy cut out the image leaving a slight border.

Then I placed foam tape on the back of my cut-out image and attached it to the front of my card.



I created a banner from the Banner Duo Die Set using some white card stock.

My sentiment comes from the Time For Coffee Stamp Set.

I finished this card by adding a bit of sparkle pen over the top of the image.

I hope you get to try this card for yourself!

 Thanks for stopping by

 

 Hope you have an awesome day!

 

Stay crafty my friends!

Fun Flower Card with Newton

 

So excited to share this fun card with you today

For the Newton’s Nook Blog.



 For this card I used

Newton’s Flower Garden

Cat-itude Stamp Set

Basic Frames Die Set

Speech Bubble Die

Floral Lace Stencil

Sometimes I just get in mood to play around with items in the studio.

This was the case for the background of this card.

I felt like I hadn't been using my stencils enough lately, so I decided just to mess around with a few.

I randomly picked up the Floral Lace Stencil and decided to use it.

I went to the scarp pile and randomly picked this burnt orange cardstock.

Since the card stock is so dark, I chose to use Picked Raspberry and Kitch Flamingo Distress Oxides.

Unfortunately, when I get in these creative moods I forget to take pictures.

ths picture came after the card was created.







Starting this card normally by tapping the stencil down to the card stock

 Just blending my 2 oxide choices together starting with dark at the ends and blending in.

Nothing fancy, just blend till you like it.

Once the blending was done, I placed the card top aside to dry a bit.

I love the way the floral background came together.

  Then I started sifting through my Newton stamps to find a stamp that would best fit this.

I decided on Newton's Flower Garden, this would be fun, and the style would go great.

I stamped, colored, and die cut out my images.


I also stamped out a couple of extra butterflies because I knew I was going to use those.

The stitched frame in the Basic Frames Die Set is one of my new favorites.

This die makes creating a card front and base so easy!

Wanting to use a sentiment from the Cat-itudeStamp Set I had

to come up with a creative way to place my sentiment.

I used the Speech Bubbles Die upside down.

To assemble this card, I started with the upside-down speech bubble and placed it on the card front first.

I added on my Kitty image popped up with foam tape and covered up the speech bubble dibble.

My butterflies went on next followed by a few matching gems.

 

This was such a fun and easy card!

I hope you get to try this card for yourself!

 Thanks for stopping by

  Hope you have an awesome day

 Stay crafty my friends!

Keep Growing

So excited to share this fun card with you today

For the Newton’s Nook Blog.


For this card I used

Floral Delights

Bright Basics 6x6 Paper Pad

Basic Frames Die Set

Circle Friends Die Set

When I first saw the Basic Frames Die Set, I knew that the

 banner in this die set would be perfect for a shaped card!

To start this card, I created a card base using red card stock and the banner die.

Once all the pieces of the card base were cut out, I cut out a card front using the

red gingham card stock from the Bright Basic 6 x 6 Paper Pad.



I glued all the pieces together to create my card and then got to work on coloring my flowers.

I stamped out the daisies from the Floral Delights Stamp Set.

I wanted bright bold colors, so I chose to color my daisies yellow with an orange center.

I also stamped out a few of the bees to put on my card as well.



To create a place for my sentiment, I used the stitched circle from the Circle Frames Die Set.

I started my assembly of the card by first gluing down my circle with the sentiment.

Next, I glued down my daisies, attaching them to the card with foam tape.

For a final touch I added my bees, and some of my favorite white enamel dots.



This was such a fun and easy card!

I hope you get to try this card for yourself!

 

 Thanks for stopping by

 

 Hope you have an awesome day

 

Stay crafty my friends!

Newton's Nook Designs April Release - Bubble Tea

 


Hello Everybody!

We are on the fourth day of our new release!

These two new sets will bring some tea-rrific joy to your life.

1st for the cat lovers

  Newton’s Bubble Tea

For the dog lovers

Puppy’s Bubble Tea Stamp



Using these stamp sets I created two cards.




Newton’s Bubble Tea I started my card by using the teal

 heart paper from the Pastel Basics 6 X 6 Paper Pad.

I cut out a 2 1/4 by 5 strip of paper and glued it to the front of a standard size teal card.

Next, I use the banner die from the Basic Frames Die Set.

I die cut this out with white card stock.

 I stamped my sentiment directly to this banner using a sentiment from the stamp set.

The banner is glued directly to the front of the card.

Next, I stamped my images from Newton’s Bubble Tea and colored them in.


I used my favorite ube bubble tea as reference.

Once I was finished, I die cut out my images using

the coordinating dies and adhered them to my banner with foam tape.

 A few hearts from the stamp set and a couple of matching enamel dots complete this card.

 

For the Puppy Bubble Tea Stamp Set I created a card base that will 

fit the Frames and Tags Die Set.

I cut out the frames and tags die set from white card stock first.

For my second pass I used the purple striped card sock from the Bright Basics 6 x 6 Paper Pad.

I assembled everything on top of a second piece of card stock 

and then glued this to the front of my card.

I stamped and colored the images from Puppy’s Bubble Tea Stamp using Thai tea as a reference.


I die cut my images using the coordinating dies and added them to the front of my card with foam tape.

 To finish this card, I stamped, colored and die cut some of the hearts that

are included and added those to the front of the card.

 This concludes my take on these fun bubble themed products!

 This and all the other new products will be available on Friday April 19th.

Newton's Nook Designs April Release - Cherry Blossoms

 


Hello Everybody!

We are on the third day of our new release!

Continuing with the flower theme we have the

Cherry Blossoms Stamp Set


Using this stamp set I created this shaped card.

 


 

When I saw this stamp set, I knew it had to be a shaped card.

I started this card by creating a circle card base with pink card stock

and a basic circle shape die from my stash.

For the card front I decided on the striped, pink card stock 

from the Pastel Basics 6 x 6 Paper Pad.

This is die cut out using the stitch circle from the Circle Frames Die Set.

I assembled the piece of this card and placed it aside with a weight on top to dry.

Next, I stamped out the cherry blossoms stamp set and

 colored my stamped blossoms using traditional cherry blossom colors.

I also die cut a place for my sentiment using a stitch square from the Basic Frames Die Set.

I stamped on my sentiment to that stitch square and glued it into the center of my card.



Then I added my cherry blossoms around the sentiment until I liked what I saw.

To complete this card, I added on a bit of pink pearls embellishment.

 This concludes my take on these beautiful cherry blossoms themed products!

 This and all the other new products will be available on Friday April 19th.

 

Happy Shopping!
