Missing You Card by Ellen Haxelmans

Missing You...

Today Ellen has created a gorgeous fall card using a spring floral stamp! The wonderful thing about our Easter Lily Stamp Set, is that you can use it way beyond spring, just by changing the colors of the blooms. For this card Ellen colored the flowers in autumn shades of yellow and orange. She used the coordinating Easter Lily Die Set to cut the image out to layer onto her card.

For the card base she created a fun background pattern by using our Tree Rings Stencil and Banner Trio Die Set (see details below). She layered this over a scallop edged panel that was cut out with our Frames & Flags Die Set. The finishing touch is the sentiment "missing you" from our Heartfelt Essentials Stamp Set, added onto a lime green banner, also cut out using our Banner Trio Die Set

Tips on creating this card

Below we have some tips from Ellen on how this card was created:

  1. (left photo) First I die cut out 5 banners using the Banner Trio Die Set and placed them evenly on purple tape. Next I blended brown distress ink on top. After that I placed the Tree Rings Stencil over the banners and blended the same colors through the stencil.
  2. (center photo) It's easy to stretch flower stamps by using season themed colors. I colored the lily from the Easter Lily Stamp Set with Zig markers. Orange lilies are perfect for a fall card!
  3. (right photo) As last step the text from the Heartfelt Essentials Stamp Set was white heat embossed on a banner from Banner Trio Die Set

Life's a Picnic With You Card by Samantha Mann

Life's a Picnic With You Card by Samantha Mann | Woodland Picnic Stamp Set, Forest Scene Builder and Border Dies by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Life's a Picnic!

Life may not be a picnic lately but I'm sure you know someone who makes your life easier! Today Samantha shares a card that would be perfect for letting someone know that they make your life better!She started out by coloring some of the cute critters from our Woodland Picnic Stamp Set. She colored them with beautiful neutral tones adding little pops of color and pink cheeks. She also added some interest by adding accents with a white gel pen. The critters were cut out using the coordinating Woodland Picnic Die Set.

Then she set the scene for these adorable critters using several die sets. She created a blue sky with distress inks and then layered grass over the top using our Land Borders Die Set. Birch trees were added to the background, cut out with our Forest Scene Builders Die Set. Then she used our Sky Borders Die Set to create a canopy of leaves above the trees! Such a fun effect! She also added a dimension to all the die cut pieces with distress inks! So pretty!

Fall-ing For You Card by Maria Russell | Shades of Autumn and Fall-ing for You Stamp Sets by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Fall-ing for Autumn!

Autumn is in the air and today we have a beautiful fall card to share by Maria that is sure to inspire your fall creativity!

For her card today, Maria created a gorgeous one layer card featuring the beautiful bold leaves from our Shades of Autumn Stamp Set. She stamped the leaves around the edge of her card using shades of yellow, pink and green. These lovely bold images have a wonderful watercolor texture to them and work great with colored inks! Pink ink was added around the card to create a soft frame. In the center,  the big sentiment is from our Fall-ing for You Stamp Set.  The finishing touches include ink splatters and gold embellishments! So gorgeous!

Floral Lace Card by September Guest Designer Kavya



Floral Lace Card by September Guest Designer Handmade by Kavya | Floral Lace Stencil by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

Hi All,

I am excited to be back with another technique using some amazing Newton's Nook products! Let's change things up a bit and play with stencils this time, shall we? Stencils are super fun and can be used to create dramatic cards in a few simple steps. Here is how I created mine:

  • I decided to use some Kraft cardstock instead of my usual white for this card. I attached the card to the Floral Lace Stencil using washi tape.
  • I first ink blended using white hybrid ink. I then moved the stencil a bit and then ink blended using 4 colors to create a rainbow. I used pink, yellow, lime green, and teal hybrid inks. Adding a white layer first creates a dramatic shadow and really makes the color pop when you are using a colored cardstock! 
  • To add some extra glimmer, keeping the stencil in place from the last step, I used Tim Holtz's Nebula stickles glitter gel. I didn't like the stars so I manually removed them later on using a picking tool. 
  • I then used some outline letter dies for my sentiment. As I really liked the ink blended panel and didn't want to cover much of it, I used vellum for the center of the alphabets so that you can still see some of the rainbow gorgeousness. 
  • I then attached the panel to a larger panel using some foam. 
  • And that's about it!

Feline Batty Card by Amy Tsuruta | Batty Newton Stamp Set, Spooky Roundabout Stamp Set and Spiderweb Stencil by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook


Feline Batty!

Today we are getting in the mood for Halloween with this card by Amy! She combined several of our newest Halloween products to create this adorable card!

The sweet kitty in the bat costume from our Batty Newton Stamp Set takes center stage. She colored the image in neutral tones with fun purple bat wings! This image was cut out using the coordinating Batty Newton Die Set to layer onto her card. Behind the batty kitty, she used the big circle of Halloween creatures from our Spooky Roundabout Stamp Set. She colored this image using a palette of soft Halloween colors and a minty green background! So lovely! The image and the scalloped circle frame were cut out using the  Circle Frames Die Set

For a final, spooky finishing touch, she added a soft spiderweb to the background using our Spiderweb Stencil and the sentiment "feline batty" onto the ticket shape from our Framework Die Set. All these elements combine perfectly for a fun and spooky Halloween creation!
