Got TP? Card by Nakaba Rager

Got TP? Card by Nakaba Rager | Naughty Newton Stamp Set, Essential Alphabet Die Set and Confetti Stencil by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

Got TP?

Today's card by Naki is sure to make you laugh! As we have been seeing stores with empty toilet paper shelves because people were afraid they might run out during the days of the pandemic, we  could use a laugh and this adorable card by Naki provides just that!

For this whimsical card she used the kitty unraveling the toilet paper from our Naughty Newton Stamp Set. She colored the kitty with a fun stripe pattern to look like her own kitty. She cut the image our using the coordinating Naughty Newton Die Set. For the background she created a blue inked background and added some texture using our Confetti Stencil. This set also includes other shapes but she applied the paste carefully to just add in the streamers.  The finishing touch is the words "Got TP?" added on by cutting out letters using our Essential Alphabet Die Set.

This is such a fun idea! I'm sure anyone who was sent this card in the mail would definitely smile!

You're Some-bunny Special Card by Zsofia Molnar

You're Some-bunny Special Card by Zsofia Molnar | Bitty Bunnies Stamp Set, Hop Into Spring Stamp Set, and Little Lilies Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

Some-bunny Special!

Today we are are sharing a darling bunny scene created by Zsofia. This sweet scene combines the bunnies from two of our adorable stamp sets. The bunny holding the daffodil is from our Hop Into Spring Stamp Set and the bunny stretching to sniff the flower is from our Bitty Bunnies Stamp Set. Don't they go so perfectly together? Zsofia colored the bunnies with soft gray and cut them them out using the coordinating Hop Into Spring Die Set and Bitty Bunnies Die Set. To make the scene even cuter, she colored the lily of the valley from our Little Lilies Stamp Set in lovely shades of blue and green, cutting it out out using the coordinating Little Lilies Die Set. These images were all added to her card over a soft blue background. A layer of grass was added along the bottom using our Land Borders Die Set. She added some flowers on the grass and butterflies into the sky using the little images from the Bitty Bunnies Stamp Set. The sentiment "You're some-bunny special" completes the scene. To finish the card, she added a fun strip of floral patterned paper along the bottom too.

These sweet bunnies surrounded by flowers are perfect for sending some Spring cheer to a friend or loved one!

Here is a close-up of the bunny and basket so you can see the lovely coloring details and gloss:

In This Together Card by April Guest Designer Jennifer Hartsgrove

Today we have our first post by our April Guest Designer, Jennifer Hartsgrove! Jennifer caught our eye with her adorable creations on Instagram and we are thrilled to have her as a guest this month! We can't wait to to see what she creates! We hope you will enjoy seeing her new creations on our blog each Monday this month! Keep reading to find out more about her today and to check out her first project below!



Hi Krafty Friends, I'm Jen from Katahdin Krafts. My krafty korner of the world is in northern Maine, where I live with my very tolerant husband, three active homeschooled children, two naughty dogs, two spit fire cats and a very stubborn house pig! So I officially reside in a funny farm! My passion for art and crafting began at a young age and led me to earn my BFA. I concentrated in photography which was an easy stepping stone into paper crafting. I am honored to have the opportunity to be a guest designer for Newton's Nook Designs for the month of April. What a great opportunity from a fabulous company, thank you so much for having me!

Hello Krafty Friends, Jen here from Katahdin Krafts. I have the honor of being April’s Guest Designer for Newton’s Nook Designs! I have been a Newton’s fan for quite sometime, often working with their products.

For this project I was inspired by our global events and wanted to showcase unity for our hurting world. What better way then Newton’s Dreams of Traveling Stamp Sets! We truly are all in this together, whether we are on the front lines, staying home, or delivering lunches, we are all trying our best. I’ve often stated how crafting is my therapy, well we all need some sort of mental outlet now, stay healthy everyone.


On this card I used the Netwon Dreams of Italy, Newton Dreams of Paris, Newton Dreams of New York, and Newton Dreams of London stamp sets. I stamped them out using copic friendly ink. Then colored them with the following color palette:
  • Newton’s Fur – Y35, Y38, YR15 and YR16. His ears are R20.
  • London Newton – B24, B28, and R27.
  • Paris Newton – B24, B28, R14, R17, R27, T0, and T1.
  • NYC Newton – R14, R17, T0, and T1.
  • Italy Newton – G3, G5, R14, R27, C00, and C1.
  • Empire State Building – N0, N2, and N4.
  • Big Ben – E51, E53, E55, and E57.
  • Brooklyn Bridge – N2, N4, and N5.
  • Leaning Tower of Pisa – W1, W3, and W4.
  • Eiffel Tower – C1, C3, C5, E31, and E34.
  • Cloud – C00, C0, and C1.

Next, I used Lawn Fawn’s Foursquare Backdrop to cut a panel for my card. I then inked up the four sections with Distress Oxide Inks. For the sky I used Tumbled Glass, Shaded Lilac and Tattered Rose. Then I used Mowed Lawn for the grass.


I then used the Newton’s Nook Designs Clouds Stencil to add some interest in the sky areas.


For my card base I cut a piece of Chili Red Classic Cardstock to 8.5″ x 5.5″ and scored it at the 4.24″ mark line, to create an A2 sized card. I used a liquid glue to adhere the frame from the backdrop die to the card base, and popped the inked sections back in place.


Then it was time to assemble my card, I really love how it turned out! I had this concept in mind for a couple of weeks, and it was exciting to see it come to life.


I've also created a video showing you how I created this card:

Thanks again to Newton’s Nook Designs for this awesome opportunity!

Until we meet again Krafty Friends, stay safe and keep krafting!

Newton's Movie Night Card & Video by Tina Smith

Newton's Movie Night Card  & Video by Tina Smith | Newton's Movie Night Stamp Set, Sunscape Stencil and Framework Die Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

Time for a Movie Night!

Do you love going to the Movies? Even if you are staying at home for a movie night in, you will adore this card by Tina! She has created an adorable movie night scene using the trio of kitties in the movie theater from our Newton's Movie Night Stamp Set. She colored the kitties in 3 different neutral patterns and then added a fun pop of color with the bright purple seats behind them! She also added some red, yellow and green accents on the popcorn, treats and 3D glasses. She cut the images of the kitties, glasses and popcorn out using the coordinating Newton's Movie Night Die Set.

For her card, she layered the image over a fun background that was created using our Sunscape Stencil. This stencil is meant to create sun rays but here it also works for rays of light in a theater setting! So clever! She also adds a ticket edge border and tickets tucked behind the kitties, cutting both out using our Framework Die Set.

Here is a close-up image so you can see the fun coloring details and sparkle that she added:
