Cup of Thanks Cat Card by Jennifer Jackson | Coffee House Stories Paper Pad, Newton’s Mug Stamp Set, Frames &. Flags Die Set and Circle Frames Die Set by Newton’s Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Today I have created a Thank You card featuring our BRAND NEW Coffee House Stories Paper Pad. I am having so much fun creating with the patterns from this new paper pad! Today I chose two coffee themed patterns to make a fun background for my card. I trimmed the two papers to fit inside the large scalloped frame from our Frames & Flags Die Set. I added a ribbon to separate the two paper designs. 

Then I stamped the cute kitty in a mug from our Newton's Mug Stamp Set with waterproof ink. This stamp set includes several sentiments that fit on the mug front. For this card I chose the sentiment "A Big Cup of Thanks."Then I used watercolor markers and cut out the image, giving him gray fur and stripes so that he looks a little like my own gray kitty! I cut the image out using the coordinating Newton's Mug Die Set. I also layered two circles behind the kitty image, cutting them from white paper and vellum using our Circle Frames Die Set

Peace and Joy Card by Samantha VanArnhem

Peace and Joy Card by Samantha VanArnhem | Holiday Home Stamp Set, Circle Frames Die Set and Land Borders Die Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmadePeace and Joy Card by Samantha VanArnhem | Holiday Home Stamp Set, Circle Frames Die Set and Land Borders Die Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

Peace & Joy!

Today Samantha has created a gorgeous holiday card, perfect for celebrating traditions of the season! For this card she featured the image of the two kids pulling home a Christmas tree from our Holiday Home Stamp Set. She colored the image in gorgeous, using mostly neutrals with pops of red and blue. The image was cut out using the coordinating Holiday Home Die Set

For her card, she started with a white card base and cut a circle out of it using our Circle Frames Die Set. Behind the circle she created a scene of snowdrifts using our Land Borders Die Set. She used ink blending for the gorgeous sky and tucked in the cluster of trees along the skyline that were stamped using our Holiday Home Stamp Set. What a fun way to create a focal point on your card!

Last, she stamped the large sentiment, also from the Holiday Home Stamp Set onto the lower right corner, using two tones of blue ink. This is the perfect finishing touch for this holiday scene! 

Thanks, Sam, for the inspiration today! To say hello to her and see more of her beautiful creations you can visit Samantha over on her blog, Sam Van Designs!

Season's Greetings Card by Farhana Sarker

Season's Greetings Card by Farhana Sarker | Poinsettia Blooms Stamp Set, Circle Frames Die Set and Holiday Foilage Stencil by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

Season's Greetings!

Today we are sharing a beautiful floral holiday card by Farhana featuring our Poinsettia Blooms Stamp Set

She started by stamping two clusters of poinsettias using our Poinsettia Blooms Stamp Set and colored them in lovely tones of red and green. For her card she carefully hand cut the images out but if you don't like to fussy cut, there is a coordinating Poinsettia Blooms Die Set available. She also added little gold gem embellishments around the flower leaves. 

For her card, she used our Holiday Foliage Stencil to dry emboss a subtle texture onto a white cardstock base. What a pretty effect!

Then she layered the floral images over the  embossed panel, adhering them on each side of a stitched circle that was cut out using our Circle Frames Die Set. In the center of the circle she added the "season's greetings" sentiment from the Poinsettia Blooms Stamp Set, embossed in gold

Snow Globe Scenes Card & Shaker Ornament by November Guest Designer Sybil Brewer

Hello again, Sybil here sharing a card & shaker ornament set that was such fun to make! I copic colored the images from the Snow Globe Scenes Stamp Set and used the coordinating Snow Globe Scenes Die Set as well.

Snow Globe Scenes Card & Shaker Ornament by November Guest Designer Sybil Brewer | Snow Globe Scenes Stamp Set and Snow Globe Shaker Die Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

For the card I used an oval stencil and blended oxide inks for the night sky and the snowy, bottom portion of the oval. I then embossed the snowflakes, added stars with a white gel pen and stamped the Merry Christmas sentiment. After adding the stamped images and a few gems to the snowflakes, the card was finished once the scene was adhered to a blue card base.

Snow Globe Scenes Card by November Guest Designer Sybil Brewer | Snow Globe Scenes Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

For the shaker ornament I used the same Snow Globe Scenes Stamp Set and color combos as I did for the card. Using the Snow Globe Shaker Die Set, I cut the outline of the globe several times, gluing each layer together until I had the desired thickness for the shaker bits to move about freely, then I attached it to a layer of acetate to create the window.  I prefer this method rather than die cutting foam which can easily get misshapen in the process. After adding a wintry sequin mix, I used a strong glue to attach the scene portion of the globe. I cut out the base twice and put foam in the center of the two pieces so when attached to the globe it would have the same dimension. I attached sequin trim to the back of the globe so it can be hung as a tree ornament or attached to a package.
