Hello Card by Ellen Haxelmans

Rainboot Card by Ellen Haxelmans | Newton's Rainboots Stamp Set, Fence Die, Sky Scene Builder, Land Borders and Essential Alphabet Die Sets by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Customized Card for a Happy Hello!

Today Ellen has created a fun spring card that is sure to make a friend feel special. This fun custom card features the kitty in some fun pink rain boots from our Newton's Rain Boots Stamp Set. She colored this cute image along with the flowers and ducks from the set and cut them out using the coordinating Newton's Rain Boots Die Set.

This cute image was added onto a scene that was created using our Land Borders Die Set for grass and hills, our Fence Die Set and our Sky Scene Builder Die Set to add clouds. Over the sky she created a custom sentiment by spelling her friends name using letters die cut out with our Essential Alphabet Die Set. She also added "hello"  and some tiny hearts from the Newton's Birdhouse Stamp Set

How to create this card:

Below we have some instructions from Ellen on how to create this card.

  1. (left photo) I colored the images from the Newton's Rain Boots Stamp Set with Copic Markers:
    Ducks: beak YR16, Y38, YR31, body Y17 + Y17, Y15, Y13, Y11 + belly Y02, Y00, Y000
    Cat: body Y28, E43, E41, E40 + ears: RV13, RV42, E02
    Boots: gold Y28, Y26, Y21 + pink RV06, RV04, RV02, R000 + light purple RV19, RV17, RV14, RV06, RV04 + dark purple V09, BV08, BV04
    Flowers: leaves YG07, YG05, YG03, YG00 + blue BG13, BG11, BG10 + yellow YR16, Y35, Y13
    Hearts: RV04, RV21, RV00.

  2. (center photo) Next I created the background using the Sky Scene Builder Die SetLand Borders Die Set and Fence Die Set and distress ink.

  3. (right photo) As last step I added the message on the card. I transferred the foil on top of a Transfer Sheet. I did cut a piece of foil slightly larger than the design. Then I placed foil, color side up, on top of the back side of the Transfer Sheet. I placed both pieces inside a folded parchment paper. Next inserted the folded parchment paper with the project into a hot laminator. As the last step, I took out the project and peeled the foil transfer sheet away to reveal the foiled piece of paper! It was time to die cut the name out of this glimmer paper using the Essential Alphabet Die Set!
We hope you enjoyed this fun project today and instructions from Ellen! To see more unique creations by Ellen, you can visit her over at her blog Crafty Ellen!

Celebratory Butterfly Card by Amanda Wilcox

Butterfly Card by Amanda Wilcox | Newton's Flower Garden Stamp Set, Butterflies Stencil Set, Frames & Flags Die Set, and Heart Frames Die Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Newton Celebrates with Butterflies!

Today Amanda has created a gorgeous butterfly themed card that is perfect for celebrating any occasion! To create the beautiful shiny butterfly background she used our Butterflies Stencil Set. This stencil set is a two piece layering design so she used the first layer that has the butterfly silhouettes and added black ink. Then she used the second layer which includes the wing patterns to large orange foil onto the wings! So gorgeous!  She created this into a card base, framing it with a black scalloped edge that was die cut using our Frames & Flags Die Set and layering it over a purple card base. 

Next, she colored that cute image of the kitty chasing butterflies from the Newton's Flower Garden Stamp Set. She even coordinated the colors on the butterflies so that they match the background pattern and the flowers to match the card base. She cut the image out using the coordinating Newton's Flower Garden Die Set. Then she added the image to her card, layering it over a vellum heart that was cut out using our Heart Frames Die Set

The finishing touch is the sentiment "Time to Celebrate" which was stamped from our Birthday Roundabout Stamp Set onto a banner that was cut out using our Banner Trio Die Set

Here is a close-up of the coloring and the foiled background:

Slimline Sea Scene!

Slimline cards are so perfect for creating fun scenes! Today we are sharing a fabulous underwater scene card by Maria featuring the bold aquatic images from our Tranquil Tides Stamp Set

To create this fun scene, Maria used the large scallop edged slimline rectangle from our Slimline Frames & Portholes Die Set. Then she masked off the edge outside the stitched border and used our Waves Stencil to create waves and our Hills & Grass Stencil Set to create sandy underwater hills. She stamped the fish from ourTranquil Tides Stamp Set, cutting them out by hand and adding gloss over them for a fun shiny look. She added them to her underwater scene.  Then she stamped the coral and bubbles from our Tranquil Tides Stamp Set over the background using bright colored inks so that the images pop off the background. She added the sentiment "You are the only fish in the sea for me" in the upper corner with black ink. Then she added a few sequins for a bit of finishing sparkle!
