Happy for You Card by Larissa Heskett

Happy for You Card by Larissa Heskett | Heartfelt Blooms Stamp Set, Heart Frames Die Set, Banner Trio Die Set and Frames Squared Die Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

Happy For You! 

Today we are sharing an amazing floral card created by Larissa. The pretty flowers on this card are perfect for sending someone a bit of cheer and happiness!

She stamped the large floral heart image from our Heartfelt Blooms Stamp Set, embossing it in black and coloring the flowers in fun bright colors with alcohol markers. She also added teal around the outside of the flower image to really make it pop! She cut the image out using the big scalloped heart from the Heart Frames Die Set

For the card base, she created a square card using the big square die with stitching and rounded corners from our Frames Squared Die Set. She added a fun floral pattern to the background by stamping the big floral image from the Heartfelt Blooms Stamp Set again, repeating it to create a patterned strip along the bottom of the card.  The finishing touch is the sentiment "Happy for you" also from the Heartfelt Blooms Stamp Set, stamped onto a banner that was cut out using our Banner Trio Die Set

Galloping By Card by Amanda Wilcox | Neigh Stamp Set, Moo Stamp Set, Serene Stripes Stencil and Framework Die Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

Galloping By...

Today we are galloping by with a happy hello on this card by Amanda! This fun card features the image of a horse from our Neigh Stamp Set, galloping along over some fun colorful stripes! Amanda colored the image of the horse and cut it out using the coordinating Neigh Die Set to add him to her card. She also added a couple of hay bales using an image from our Moo Stamp Set, cut out with the coordinating Moo Die Set

The background was created by stenciling stripes using our Serene Stripes Stencil over a  postage edged panel that was cut out using our Framework Die Set. She finishes off this fun layout by adding the sentiment, also from the Neigh Stamp Set along the bottom edge.

Amanda also added a fun message on the card inside. She finishes off the "Galloping by" sentiment from the front with the "to say howdy" sentiment on the inside! Another horse finishes off the fun! Both images are also from the Neigh Stamp Set

Pug Birthday Card by Tina Herbeck | Pug Hugs Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

Birthday Pug!

This fun birthday card by Tina would be perfect for any dog lovers on your list! She features the adorable pug from our Pug Hugs Stamp Set. She colors him using alcohol markers, giving him a fun teal colored birthday hat. Tina cut out her images using a Scan N Cut but you could also use the coordinating Pug Hugs Die Set

For her card base she cut out a scallop edged panel using our Frames & Flags Die Set. She added a soft blue hue in the center of her panel to help the images pop. Behind the pup she also added balloons from our Delightful Doxies Stamp Set, coloring them teal, green, yellow and gray and added them behind the pup. Isn't it cute how she used twine to make strings for the balloons? Again, she cut her balloons out using a Scan N Cut but you could also use the coordinating Delightful Doxies Die Set.

To finish off this cute card, she added the birthday pug sentiment from the  Pug Hugs Stamp Set in the lower right corner and added some iridescent sequins around the balloons.

Today Zsofia has created a sweet heart shaped birthday card! For this card she features the duo of sweet flamingos from our retiring Flirty Flamingo Stamp Set.

Coffee Is Always a Good Idea Card by June Guest Designer Melissa Andrew

Melissa will be back each Monday for the month of June with a new project! Keep reading to find out more about her today and to check out her first project below.

Hi ya! I’m Melissa – a 40 something wife and mother of two girls and a sweet boy. I currently live in Rockville, MD and work as a research laboratory manager at a Children's hospital in DC. I love paper crafting and specifically card making. Luckily, my sweet hubby supports my crafting habits and has helped me design a tiny piece of heaven called my “Crafty Area”!
Find me on instagram -melissamade2

Hi ya everyone, Melissa here today and I’m super excited to share my first post as a Newton’s Nook Designs Guest Designer!  I adore everything Newton’s Nook Designs and today I used Newton Loves Coffee Stamp SetArgyle Stencil Set and the Frames and Flags Die Set to create today’s simple card.

Coffee Cat Card by Melissa Andrew| Newton Loves Coffee Stamp Set, Argyle Stencil Set, and Frames & Flags Die Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I started by stamping the adorable Newton in an alcohol friendly black ink.  I then colored Newton in a calico pattern with my alcohol markers.  I cut little Newton out and added foam dots to his back.

Next, I used the Argyle Stencil Set to stencil in light and dark blue ink on a die cut piece of white card stock.  I used the next to largest die from the Frames and Flags Die Set.

Last, I cut out the scalloped border die from the Frames and Flags Die Set in a light blue card stock.  I then adhered that to an A2 size card base.  I stamped a sentiment from the Newton Loves Coffee Stamp Set in dark blue ink.

I then adhered this Argyle layer to the base layer with foam tape to give the card a bit more dimension.  Newton was added last with foam dots. 

In the end, a few sequins finished off today’s simple card.

A Great Card for a Great Teacher!

Do you need a cute idea for a fun thank you card for your teachers? This amazing card by Samantha would be perfect for letting them know how much they are appreciated! To create this card, Samantha combined the kitty with the apple from our Newton Dreams of New York Stamp Set (retiring) with the kitty on the stack of books from our Newton's Book Club Stamp Set. These two images work purr-fectly together for a fun school themed image! She colored those kitties using bright watercolors and fussy cut them out by hand. So incredible!

For her card base, she masked off the top half of her card and inked it up using distress inks. Then she stenciled stars over it using our Cascading Stars Stencil with white texture paste. She added the sentiment from our  Classy Teachers Stamp Set, embossing it in white onto a strip of black cardstock. 

Here is a close up so you can see all the amazing details:
