 First up we have this adorable HOWL-iday card by Samantha:

It's never to early to start creating Holiday cards! Samantha created this cute holiday scene using the Basset Hound from our Canine Christmas Stamp Set! She created a light up spot behind his red nose to make him look like Rudolph using the Chibitronics Starter Kit! How cute! She also added some lights in the fun distress inked sky! The tiny little Santa image is masked off from an image in our Newton's Curious Christmas Stamp Set! When you press in the bottom corner of the card they all light up!

Our second project today is a gorgeous Space Scene by Juliana:

Space Cat light up card by Juliana Michaels | Cosmic Newton Stamp set & Starfield Stencil by Newton's Nook Designs with Chibitronics lights | #newtonsnook #chibitronics

Juliana used her Chibitronics Starter Kit along to create a fun space scene!  She colored the cute image of the kitty in a space suit from the Cosmic Newton Stamp Set and trimmed him out using the coordinating Cosmic Newton Die Set. Then she created an awesome starry background for him using our distress inks along with our Starfield Stencil! She added a fun cloud along the bottom using our Sky Borders Die Set and added the "Never Stop Dreaming" sentiment from the Cosmic Newton Stamp Set!  Some of those stars in the sky light up too - make sure you pop over to her blog to see more photos!

Being Awesome Card by August Guest Designer Neha Parab


Hello Everyone!!!
Today I am back with another card inspiration for you all as Guest Designer at Newton’s Nook Designs for the month of August!!! This week's card is created using the Believe In Unicorns Stamp Set from the latest Newton's Nook product release for the month of August. Lets' take a look.

Being Awesome Card by August Guest Designer Neha Parab | Believe in Unicorns Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Unicorn Card by August Guest Designer Neha Parab | Believe in Unicorns Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Here is a close up of the unicorn showing the coloring

Process:
  1. I started off by stamping the unicorn & rainbow images from the Believe In Unicorns Stamp Set on Strathmore Bristol cardstock.
  2. Then I colored the images using Zig clean color real brush pens (colors mentioned is description) & fuzzy cut them using scissors.
  3. Then using the Sky Borders Die Set, I die-cut various cloud shaped pieces. To add interest to them, I did a bit of ink blending on the edges of those die-cuts using Salty ocean Distress ink mini.
  4. On a separate Strathmore Bristol card panel that's smaller than A2 size, I stamped the sentiment in the left top corner from the same stamp set & I attached the cloud shaped die-cuts from the bottom up using foam tape to create dimension.
  5. Finally I attached the unicorn & the rainbow using foam tap as well and added the entire panel on an A2 sized Lawn Fawn patterned paper.
  6. I finished the card by attaching the entire panel on an A2 sized top folding card base, added a few sequins to the card and added a bit of Clear Wink of Stella to the rainbow & unicorn  as finishing touches.
I hope you all liked it. I would love to hear back from you all. Thank you very much for taking your time to notice it. Hope to hear again from all of  u soon. Till then take care. :) PS: If my posts inspire you to create something on similar lines, I feel highly flattered. But please, do respect the effort I take in conceptualizing and executing, please give a direct link to my work when you are inspired by mine. Thanks for understanding :-)
