Blooming Botanicals Card by June Guest Designer Courtney Kreeber

A Pop of Color with Blooming Botanicals

Blooming Botanicals Card by June Guest Designer Courtney Kreeber | Blooming Botanicals Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

Hi crafty friends.  I have had so much fun this month guest designing for Newton’s Nook.  For my last project I used the Blooming Botanicals Stamp Set.
I started by stamping the large image 4 times covering an entire card front.  I then stamped it again onto another piece of white cardstock and colored with my Copic markers.

Next, I trimmed down my colored panel and layered that onto a piece of black cardstock and popped that up right in the center of my card. 

I white heat embossed the sentiment and layered that toward the bottom being careful not to cover too much of my coloring 😊.

Thanks so much for having me for the month of June.  Have a creative and crafty day!

She created an amazing rainbow cloud background using our  Cloudy Sky Stencil and a whole rainbow of distress ink colors to create that vibrant background! She added some water splatters and then cut the background out using the scallop edge from our Frames & Flags Die Set to add to her card base. She added on two adorable panda umbrellas using our Umbrella Pals Stamp Set and the coordinating Umbrella Pals Die Set. The sentiment "You make rainy days brighter" goes perfectly with this amazing rainbow card.

Chicken Birthday Card by Ellen Haxelmans

Chicken Birthday Card by Ellen Haxelmans | Cluck Stamp Set, Speech Bubbles Die Set, and Land Borders Die Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

Chicken Birthday Card with a fun Folding Flap!

Today we are sharing a fun folding chicken themed card created by Ellen! She created a fun farmyard scene with a fold up thought bubble using our Speech Bubbles Die Set. She cut the speech bubble shape directly from the card front (see directions below). She colored bubble blue and embossed several sentiments onto using our the Cluck Stamp Set. Along the bottom of the card she created a cute scene using the chickens from the Cluck Stamp Set. She colored those cute chickens and cut them out using the coordinating Cluck Die Set. She also added some hay from the Moo Stamp Set for the chicken on the right to sit on! She completed the scene by adding layers of yellow grass cut out using our Land Borders Die Set.

When you lift up the flap, you see the "It's your Birthday" Sentiment from the Cluck Stamp Set inside the card. She also added in some little confetti bits using the Newton Celebrates Stamp Set and Newton's New Year Stamp Set

Tips on creating this card!
Below we have some tips from Ellen on how to create this card with the fun folding flap!

Chicken Birthday Card by Ellen Haxelmans | Cluck Stamp Set, Speech Bubbles Die Set, and Land Borders Die Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade


  1.  (Above left photo) Tape your background paper and the front of the card. I used removable tape for this. You can cut the background paper and card base together. This ensures they match exactly. I used the Speech Bubbles Die Set for this. 
  2. (Above center photo) Then it’s time to color the front. First I arranged the sentiments from the Cluck Stamp Set and stamped them with embossing powder. Afterwards I inked the panel with blue distress ink.
  3. (Above right photo) The last step is to create the inside of the card. I started with die cutting a similar rectangle. As I did in the previous step I did embossed the text, but this time with gold embossing powder. After cutting the grass using the Land Borders Die Set. I colored all the pieces including the stamped illustrations. The last step was to place grass and critters on pop dots on the bottom of the panel.


What a fun and unique way to fold a card for an extra special effect!

Happy Birthday Kitty card by Jennifer Jackson

Happy Birthday Kitty card by Jennifer Jackson | Newton's Daydream Stamp Set,  Birthday Essentials Stamp Set, and Cloudy Sky Stencil by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

Sweet and Simple Birthday Card!

Hello! Jen here today with a sweet and simple kitty card that is perfect for birthday wishes! To create this card I started with a panel of watercolor paper that was cut out into a scalloped rectangle using our Framework Die Set. Then I stamped the image of the kitty and flowers from our  Newton's Daydream Stamp Set using a waterproof ink. I colored the image using Derwent Inktense Watercolor pencils and a water brush. Then I added the big Happy Birthday sentiment above the image using our Birthday Essentials Stamp Set.  For the background I used our Cloudy Sky Stencil with white embossing paste and created clouds across the top half of a piece of white cardstock. Then I used distress inks to add blue over the top and blended it into green to create a sky to grass effect.

You Make Life a Picnic Card by Maria Russell

You Make Life a Picnic Card by Maria Russell | Woodland Picnic Stamp Set, Land Borders Die Set and Sunscape Stencil by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

You make life a picnic!

Life is a picnic when you have good friends to share it with! Today Maria created this adorable card using those sweet friends from our new Woodland Picnic Stamp Set. She colored the deer holding the picnic basket, the bear with a slice of watermelon and a bunny with a cupcake from the set. She used the coordinating Woodland Picnic Die Set to trim the images out. She placed the bunny and bear in a cute little square, adding the sun in the background using our Sunscape Stencil. She also added in that cute little butterfly using our Bitty Bunnies Stamp Set and coordinating die set. She added in some grass too using our Land Borders Die Set. How cute!

Along the bottom of the card she added another grass border using our Land Borders Die Set and stamped ants along it from the Woodland Picnic Stamp Set. She finished the card off with the "You make life a picnic" sentiment, also from the Woodland Picnic Stamp Set.
