35_Apr2016
Hello!!
I'm here to share the Card I made for the Sketch For You to Try Challenge over on the Reverse Confetti Blog!! I have SEVERAL Graduation Cards to hand out in the Next few Weeks and I thought this one turned out AWESOME!!?? =)  I've used the So Very Spring Quick Card Panels for my Card Base and then Die Cut a FUN Edge using the
Edgers Confetti Cuts Die Set!! For the Sentiment I Die Cut the Smaller Scalloped Circle Die from the Circles ‘n Scallops Confetti Cuts Die Set then a Circle to fit inside!! I Stamped and Embossed the Sentiment in a Double Color Story using the Circle Sentiments Stamp Set!! I LOVE doing this!! =) I wanted to add some Stars for the Embellishments so I die cut Several  from the Oh My Stars Confetti Cuts Die Set from to different Card Stock Colors and then Layered them together!! I just had to ad some Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Marker ontop of the Stars for some SPARKLE and then I also Sprinkled some Pretty Pink Posh Mini Silver Star Confetti across the Card and I think it really just FINISHES of the Design!!  =) 


Hope you Like It!!??
THANKS SO MUCH for stopping by and have a FABULOUS WEEKEND!!

Newton's Nook Designs April Release ~ Tag Sampler!! =)

Pin It

Hello!!
Welcome to day 2 of the Newton's Nook Designs April Release!! SQUEAL!! You're going to LOVE LOVE LOVE these New Stamp Sets!! Today we're showcasing the New "Tag Sampler" Stamp Set!! Just look at these Images!! Aren't they FUN!!?? =)
Tag Sampler | 4 x 6 Handmade Tag Stamp set | Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook
I decided to make a FUN Gift Bag filled with a YUMMY Cupcake!! =) SQUEAL!! Cupcakes are my FAVORITE Treat!! I've used the Lawn Fawn Tote Bag Die and I've altered it in order to get the Cupcake inside!!
So can you see how I altered the FUN Die!!?? I just cut 2 extra Side Pieces and I combined them together cutting the Seam after they were adhered together so that it didn't stick out into the center of the Bag!! I think this makes this Tote Bag Die SO MUCH more versatile!! =) Think of ALL that you can use these Bags for now at this Larger Size!!?? I Stamped and Embossed the Tag onto some SWEET Lawn Fawn Petite Let's Polka In The Meadow Patterend Paper!! I also Stamped and Embossed it onto some White Cardstock and Die Cut the Center Scallops out!! I wanted to Stamp and Emboss my Sentiment so I masked it and used some BEAUTIFUL WoW Passion Fruit Glitter Embossing Powder for the word LOVE!! There was alittle open space left on the right hand side so I decided to add the Cupcake from "Winston's Birthday" Stamp Set!! I also Packaged my Cupcake in a FUN Plastic Cup that I just Cut Down and Folded in on its self!! I do this ALL the time for Beckett's School Lunches!! That way the Frosting on the Cupcake doesn't get ruined!! I hope this INSPIRES you when it comes to packaging your Sweet Treats!!??  =)

Newton's Nook Designs April Release~Winston's Honeybees!! =)

Pin It
Hello!!
Welcome to the Newton's Nook Designs April Release!! SQUEAL!! You're going to LOVE LOVE LOVE these New Stamp Sets!! Today we're showcasing the New "Winston's Honeybees" Stamp Set!! Just look at these Images!! Aren't they FUN!!?? =)
I'm not gonna lie, the Sweet Winston Image is my FAVORITE!! =)
I'm still recovering from my Surgery, but I have a FUN Tag to share with you today!! I also have a Story to share!! We've had Honeybee's on our Farm for the last 4 Years!! =) A couple of Honeybee Keepers came to our Farm one day asking if we'd be Interested in housing some of their Honeybee Boxes and in return we would not only get the benefits of having the Honeybees around the Farm to help Pollinate the Alfalfa, Wild Flowers, Trees ect. but, we'd also get ALL of the Honey we could use!! =) So WIN WIN Right!!?? They're actually used for Pollinating Almonds in California!! Once they are done with Pollinating the Almonds in California they bring them out to our Farm here in Nebraska so they can rest!! Then before Winter hits they take them to South Dakota to Hibernate!! It has been such an AMAZING Experience!! I NEVER knew they did so much and that they traveled ALL over for the safety of the Honeybees!! Infact they should be arriving back to the Farm any day now!! =)
So as soon as I saw this Set, I just KNEW I had to use it to create a Tag to adorn a Jar of our Farm Fresh/Raised and Harvested Honey!!  =) I Stamped and Embossed the Winston Image onto a Wooden Tag using Versa Fine Black Onyx Ink and some WoW Ultra Fine Clear Detail Embossing Powder!! I used my MISTI Stamping Tool just to insure I got a Crisp Image beings I was Stamping onto a Wooden Tag!! Then I used my Prisma Colored Pencils and Gamsol to Color in my Image!! I backed it with another Tag cut from some Patterned Paper!! I then Created a Sweet Ribbon Bow and my Tag was finished!! I just LOVE the way it turned out and I CAN'T WAIT to give this Jar of Honey away to Beckett's VERY AMAZING Teacher in a May Day Basket!! =)

I Carrot About You with Newton's Nook Designs!! =)

Pin It
Newton
HELLO and HAPPY FRIDAY!! =)
I'm here today with a project I've made for the Newton's Nook Designs Blog!! My FIRST post since my Surgery!! YIPPEE!! I've made a FUN Spring themed Card using the bunny, newly named "Lily" from the Hello Spring Stamp Set!! Then I thought she needed a Basket FULL of Carrots that I also Stamped from the Hello Spring Stamp Set!! I placed them in one of the Baskets from the Basket of Wishes Stamp Set!! I used Copic Markers to Color my Images and then added some details using a White Gel Pen and some Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Marker for some SPARKLE!! =) I used a Lil' Inker Designs Die to created the FUN Design on my MFT Stone Grey Cardstock Base!! Then I also used a Lil' Inker Designs Stitched Rectangle Die to create the Main Panel for my Scene!! I used some Tumbled Glass Distress Ink to Ink round the Edges of the Top of the Stitched Rectangle Die to create the Sky!! I wanted the Panel to POP of the Card Base so I decided to use an Avey Elle Dotted Borders Pinked Edge from some MFT Steel Grey Cardstock!! I just LOVE the way it looks against the Stitched Card Base!! Then I used an MFT Grass Border Die and Die Cut a couple different Green Coordination Cardstocks and Inked the edges with some Ground Espresso Distress Ink to add some Interest!! I Stamped and Embossed my Sentiment on a MFT Banner!! Double Stamping the word Carrot with some Hero Arts Rust Ink to create a Visual Triangle with ALL of the range Images on my Card!! =) I hope you LOVE it as much as I do!!
 
THANKS SO MUCH for stopping by and I hope you have a FABULOUS WEEKEND!!

Newton's Nook Designs March Release ~ "Newton Dreams of London"!! =)

Pin It
HELLO!!
Welcome to the Second Day of the Newton's Nook Designs March Release!! Today we are showcasing the New "Newton Dreams of London" Stamp Set and the Coordinating Die Set!!
SQUEAL!! How FUN are these Images!!??
I made two cards to share with you today!! My First Card just had to be a Shaker Card!! My FAVORITE kind of Card to make!!  =) I Stamped and Embossed the ENTIRE Background of a A2 Distress Watercolor Card Base!! I REALLY LOVE the look of the Black and White Print Patterned Papers so I was going for that type of Design!! I Stamped almost ALL of the Images from the Set!! It took me a couple Practice runs to get the Design just right, but I REALLY LOVE the way it turned out!! I then created my Window and used Vellum to soften the Stamped Design behind the Window so that Newton could take center stage!! Then I used several Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh to finish off my Card Design!!
                                                                                          For my Second Card I wanted to create a FUN Scene Inspired by the Mary Poppins Movie!! =) So I Stamped and Embossed my Scene!! I had to do some Masking, in order to get the look I was going for!! I also used the Eifel Tower and the Phone Booth Image to create a Single Building Front Design!! I then Stamped and Embossed Newton in ALL of his Glory!! I used Distress Water colors to color the Images and added some Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Marker for some Sparkle!! =)

Newton's Nook Designs March Release ~ Hello Spring!! =)

Pin It

HELLO!!
Welcome to the Newton's Nook Designs March Release!! I'm SO EXCITED to showcase the New "Hello Spring" Stamp Set with you today!! Just look at these SWEET Images!! Did you happen to join us for the Name that Bunny Contest Week last Week!!?? Well we held a contest to Name the Sweet Bunny Image and this New Set has Two New Bunny Images!! =) We're HAPPY to announce that her Name is       !! If you missed out on ALL of the FUN and Inspiration I hope you'll go and check it out!! SO MANY AMAZING Creations were shared by the DT ALL Week and  if nothing else maybe you'll find some New Coloring Inspiration for how to Color   in!!??  =) Okay, back to the Release!! Check out this Set in ALL of its BEAUTY!! =)
Isn't this Set FULL of SWEET Images!! SQUEAL!! I just LOVE LOVE LOVE SPRING!!
Here's my Card for today!! =)
I started with the SWEET Bunny Image and Stamped and Embossed her onto some Distress Watercolor Paper!! Then I used my Copic Markers to Color her in (N0, N2, N4 and 0 for some texture)!! I used Several Pastel Colors for the Tulips and then added some Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Marker and some White Gel Pen Dots for some Highlights!! I just LOVE LOVE LOVE how she tuned out!! I KNEW I wanted the have her look like she was in her Garden Picking Flowers to give to her LOVED ones!! =) So I decided to use the Reverse Confetti Basket Die and I decided I needed to ALTER it some to fit the scale of my Bunny Image/Card better!! It normally has 6 Rows of Wicker and I just cut one row of wicker off of each side to narrow it down and then just cut down 2 Rows to shorten it!! Then cut the Sweet Liner alittle to fit!! The Bunny Images hides most of that anyway so no one would EVER KNOW unless you told them!! =) So now I can use this AMAZING Little Basket Die with so many more Images!! LOVE!! =) I then Stamped and Embossed 8 Tulips and a Butterfly Image also from the "Hello Spring" Stamp Set and colored them all using the same Copic Colors!! Covered them with some Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Marker and added the White Gel Pen Highlights and added them to my Basket!! I left one outside laying infront of the Basket and then added the Butterfly above the Basket!! =) I used the New Pretty Pink Posh Border Dies to create a Sweet Little Lace inspired Panel and then used a Lil' Inker Designs Quilted Swirl Stitched Patterned Die to create the BEAUTIFUL Quilted Swirl Stitched Design on my Card Base!! I REALLY LOVE the Sweet Feel and Look of this Card and think it could be used for ANY OCCASION!! I decided not to stamp a sentiment on the Front and left it open so I can add one t the Inside of the Card when I need to use it!!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE these Sweet Images and think they make the PERFECT Scenes!! I also don't think they have to be used just for Easter Cards/Images either!! Think of Welcome Baby Cards, Spring Cards, Thinking of You Cards too!! =)

For my Next Card I decided to use the SWEET NND Bunny Hop Stamp Set!!

This is another one of my FAVORITE Stamp Sets!! Seriously, who doesn't LOVE a Bunny's Butt!!?? SQUEAL!! =) Just makes me HAPPY!! I wanted to create a Sweet Water Colored Scene as the Focal for my Card and then I teamed it with some BEAUTIFUL MFT Plaid Patterned Paper!! PERFECT Pairing for Spring!! =) I used the Silly Stitched Die Set from Lil' Inker Designs for the Card Panel and the Circle I Stamped my Scene on!! I LOVE the way it looks!! =) I used some Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Marker to add some SPARKLE to parts o my Scene!! Then a Sprinkling of Iridescent Sequins finishes off my Card Design!!
 
My Last Card uses SEVERAL NND Stamp Sets to create a REALLY SWEET Spring Scene!!
I Stamped and Embossed ALL of my Images after Masking in order to create a Realistic One Layer (ish) Card!! I used the NND Bunny Hop Stamp Set along with the NND Versatile Vases Stamp Set, NND Winter Tails Stamp Set, and the NND Newton's Daydream Stamp Set!! I used Distress Water Color Paper and Clear WoW Embossing Powder!! Then Distress Markers to Water Color the Images!! Some Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Marker adds just the right amount of SPARKLE!! =) Then just had to add a Fuzzy Pom-Pom for the Bunnies Tail!!
Versatile Vases - 4x6 photopolymer flower, vases, pots, sentiments stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs.   Winter Tails | 4x6 photopolymer Stamp Set | Newton's Nook Designs
