Love No Bunny Butt You Card by Holly Endress

Love No Bunny But You Card by Holly Endress | Bunny Hop Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

Love no Bunny Butt You!!  

Today we are shaking things up with a fun Spring card by Holly She used our Bunny Hop Stamp Set to create this card, stamping the bunny in the flower pot and eggs and coloring them with copic markers. She added little white accents with a gel pen and then fussy cut out the images. For her card base she used tape to section off a rectangle before adding the distress inks for the fun watercolored background strip. Then she added a Black line once the tape was removed. What a fun technique!

Thank you, Holly, for the adorable card today! You can find more of Holly's creations and say hello to her over at her blog, Hollybeary Creations!

A Set of Stamped Background Cards by September Guest Designer Sindhu Prajay




Hello everyone! Sindhu here. Today happens to be my last GD post for Newton's Nook Designs. I'm so grateful for this opportunity and wish to thank Jen and Samantha again for inviting me over. :) My post for today is all about stamped backgrounds. I enjoy creating my own patterns by stamping backdrops for my focal images. Here is my first card...


Stamped Background Card by September Guest Designer Sindhu Prajay | Newton's Summer Treats and Summer Scoops Stamp Sets by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

I used Newton's Summer Treats and Summer Scoops stamp sets. I stamped images from the Summer Scoops set on a piece of Neenah Solar White 110 lb cardstock in light grey ink and coloured the images with a grey copic marker. I used W0 since I didn't want the background to dominate my focal image. I used a stitched rectangle die to cut out a rectangular panel. Then, I coloured the image, fussy cut it and adhered it on the panel and then stuck it on the card base.

For the next card, I stamped small images from the Newton's Birthday Bash Stamp Set in the background with coloured inks. Then filled a few of those images with colour.

Since the background has so much colour, I decided to tone it down a bit by layering vellum behind my focal image which is from the Newton Loves Boxes Stamp Set. I added sentiment on a pice of white cardstock layered on red cardstock. I assembled the card on the card base.

For the last card, instead of stamping images in the background, I stamped text. Text backgrounds are so much fun. I used only a single stamp called 'Classy Teachers'. I didn't use any ruler or stamping tool for help but if you want a perfect background, one of them is recommended.

This stamp set is called Hello Beautiful and you can find it and the coordinating die ONLY at Simon Says Stamp!

And, of course, I had to play with the set to show you what you can create with it! 

Hello Card with Kitty by Jennifer Jackson | STAMPtember Exclusive: Hello Beautiful Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade
For my first card I created this fun little hello card with the kitty holding the sign from this set. I colored the kitty with copic markers and added the "hello" and "there" to his sign. Then I cut him out with a circle die and added two more circles in blue and yellow, stamping the "hello" on those as well to make a fun pattern!

For the card background I cut out a piece of kraft cardstock to create a postage edged panel using our Framework Die Set, I assembled all the pieces, adding in some twine and a few nuvo drops for a pop of color.
Happy Dogs Card by Jennifer Jackson | STAMPtember Exclusive: Hello Beautiful Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade
Then I created a second card using the cute puppies holding a banner. I stamped them onto a stitched rectangle panel of watercolor paper that I cut out using our Frames & Flags Die Set. I added the "happy" on one side and "together" on the other.

I colored them using Zig clean color brush markers. I added this panel to a kraft background and also added a bit of scalloped green paper up the side using our Sky Borders Die Set. I thought it needed a little more interest so I cut out a banner using our Frames & Flags Die Set and embossed a little white heart on it. 

I hope you liked my projects today and using this new exclusive set. 
Remember, you can only get this design at Simon Says Stamp while supplies last! 

The whole Newton's Nook Designs Team was also able to play along with this new set!

Ellen created another adorable project to share today. This one is a cloud shaped shaker card! She used the cute kitty on a broomstick from our Newton’s Boo-tiful Night Stamp Set. She colored the image with copic markers and then cut it out using the new coordinating Newton's Boo-tiful Night Die Set. She added this kitty, along with some bats and a moon onto the corner of her cloud. 

Inside the shaker shape she also added the "trick or treat" die cut. This die cut is a bonus die that's included in our Halloween Trio Die Set.
