Interactive Newton Card by June Guest Designer Megan Quinn




Hi everyone and happy Monday! I am back again this week guest designing for Newton’s Nook and I am so excited that you stopped in today to see what we have in store for you! Today, I am sharing a card that I created using Newton’s Summer Vacation Stamp Set and Newton Scoots By Stamp Set stamp sets.
Interactive Newton Card by June Guest Designer Megan Quinn | Newton's Summer Vacation Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

I began by stamping the hilarious cat image with little Newton peering into the fish bowl. I thought that it would be fun to make this into an interactive card by putting Newton’s head onto a slider mechanism so that he could get a closer look into the fish bowl (and the fish inside). I stamped this image several times, colored them with Copic markers, and fussy cut the parts of Newton that I needed for each layer. I then used a craft knife to cut the inside of the fish bowl away and backed the rim of the bowl with acetate. I cut the pebbles and seaweed from the bottom of the aquarium and the fish image out next. To make these pieces stick to the inside of the fish bowl, I put the images into my sticker maker face down so that the adhesive would be on the front of the image. I put the fish, pebbles, and seaweed on the back of the acetate where they would line up with the original fish bowl image underneath. I was careful to add foam adhesive to the back of the fish bowl only on the edges and where Newton’s head would not come into contact with the foam adhesive. I then fussy cut Newton’s front paw out and adhered that to the side of the fish bowl with liquid glue and foam tape as well.

To create the background, I used Salty Ocean Distress Oxide Ink and blended the ink onto a white piece of cardstock. I then flicked water droplets onto the background and blotted it dry with a clean paper towel. I added some patterned paper at the bottom of the front panel to create a table for the fish bowl and little Newton to sit upon. I adhered Newton’s head onto the slider mechanism. Lastly, I adhered the front panel to a card base that I had layered with a contrasting piece of cardstock to add a pop of color.

I hope that my card has inspired you to look at your stamps in a new and different way! I have one more card to share with you, so please come back next Monday.

 Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Interactive Hello Baby Card by Ellen Haxelmans


Today we have another fun interactive project to share by Ellen! Each month she is sharing an interactive project to inspire you! 

Today is she's sharing a fun window card with a hidden message!

Here are step-by-step instructions from Ellen on how to make a card like this:
Interactive Hello Baby Card by Ellen Haxelmans | Deer Friend Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade
  1. (Photo on Top Left) First think of an idea on what you want to create and start coloring the images. I started with some elements from the “Deer Friend” and the “Fox Hollow” stamp set and colored them with Copic Markers.
  2. (Photo on Top Right)When the images are colored, first check where the window should be placed on the outside of the card. If you know that you can cut the window (I’m using the stitched frame from the Newton’s Book Club Die Set for it).
  3. Finish the outside of your card. Maybe you can give it color with a stencil or keep it white as I did with a little bow on the side.
  4. As last step you create a flat inside portion. I created a scene with Oxide inks and added a grass border using the Land Borders Die Set. I added the two smallest flags using the Frames & Flags Die Set to hold  the title. The sentiment uses word stamps from the Loveable Laundry Stamp Set and the Simply Relative Stamp Set set to created a lovely message.
Here is how the finished card looks when it's closed. 
Just part of the scene peeks out from the window:

When the card is opened the message is revealed along with the rest of the scene:

Here's one last close-up of the scene so you can see the amazing details in the coloring:
