Toucan Party by March Guest Designer Alberto Gava


Hello everybody!

I’m Alberto and I’m back again with my 4th post for the Newton's Nook blog!

A bit sad to tell you but this will be my last one…for now! ;)

Toucan Party by March Guest Designer Alberto Gava | Toucan Party Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

Today I’ve colored these two cute toucans with my beloved copics. I’ve decided to draw a little background behind them and I think this jungle match perfectly with the scene I wanted to represent.

Sending Suggles Card by Ellen Haxelmans | Darling Duos Stamp Set, Darling Hearts Die Set, Clouds Stencil and Frames Square Die Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

Sending Snuggles!

Hello and Happy Friday! Today we are sharing a sweet bird themed card by Ellen that is sure to brighten up your day! She features the sweet duo of love birds shaped in a heart from our retiring Darling Duo Stamp Set. She  colors the birds in reds and purples using copic markers. She added some dot clusters too to give the image texture. The birds were then cut out using our Darling Hearts Die Set, which fits right around the image.

For her background she used our Frames Squared Die Set to cut a square with a scalloped edge and then added layers of clouds over it using our Clouds Stencil.

Here are a couple of close-ups so you can see her process:

Movies + Popcorn = perfect night!

If you enjoy going to the movies or watching them at home, you will love today's card by Amanda! This card features that cute trio of kitties from our Newton's Movie Night Stamp Set. She colored the kitties along with some popcorn and 3D glasses in neutral tones, letting the bright colors on the 3D glasses, popcorn and candy pop! She cut all the images out using the Newton's Movie Night Die Set to add them to her card.  For the background of her card she used our Popcorn Stencil and used transfer gel and a laminator to add white flocking to the popcorn! For more fun detail, she used yellow chalk to add some butter onto the popcorn too! She used our Framework Die Set to add the postage edge to the popcorn background and also to the rectangle that holds the sentiment!

Here is a close-up so you can see her lovely coloring. The added white gel pen details really add some extra dimension too:

Hoppy Spring!

Does it feel like Spring yet where you live? According to the calendar Spring is officially here and we are celebrating today with an adorable Spring card by Maria! This adorable card features a duo of sweet bunnies from two different stamp sets! The bunny holding the daffodil is from our new Hop into Spring Stamp Set and the bunny with the cupcake is from our Woodland Picnic Stamp Set. She paired them together, coloring the daffodil and cupcake with pretty pinks! She used the coordinating Hop into Spring Die Set and Woodland Picnic Die Set to cut the bunnies out.

For her card she created a beautiful pink background panel, giving it a postage edge using our Framework Die Set. She added a circle die cut in the center to hold a lovely little scene that was created using a grass border cut out using our Land Borders Die Set and clouds and a sunshine from our Sky Scene Builder Die Set. She made the cute scene into a shaker too, adding lovely transparent hearts inside.

To finish out the card she added the sentiment "hoppy Spring" by combing the word hoppy from the Hop into Spring Stamp Set with letters that spell out Spring, cut out with our Essential Alphabet Die Set.

This beautiful card has so many fun details!  Here is a close up:

Newton Dreams of Italy March Guest Designer Alberto Gava



Hello everybody! 
I'm back again with a new card for you today. As you may know Italy is in a tough period and we are all staying home due to the coronavirus. So for today's post I really wanted to make an Italy-inspired card with a little coloring of Venice. 

 Newton Dreams of Italy March Guest Designer Alberto Gava | Newton Dreams of Italy Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

So I stamped Newton on the Gondola from the set "Newton Dreams of Italy" and started drawing a little background behind him.
