For My Mum Mini Card by Tatiana Trafimovich

For My Mum Mini Card by Tatiana Trafimovich | Lovely Blooms Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

A Beautiful Mini Bouquet card!

Today we are sharing this adorable mini floral card by Tatiana! She created this little shaped card using the the vase a flowers from our Lovely Blooms stamp set! She inked up those flowers, leaves and jar using Distress inks. Then she die-cut them all out using the coordinating Lovely Blooms Die Set. To make it into a card, she jut the jar out twice to create a shaped card base and glued together only the top part so that it opens and you can leave a message inside.  Then she added stamped "for my mum" using the words from the Simply Relative stamp set on a little circle tag that was die-cut using our Tags Times Two Die Set

A Sloth-some Birthday Card by Naki Rager


Sloth Shaker Card!

Today we have an adorable sloth shaker card by Naki! She used that adorable sloth from In Slow Motion stamp set and colored him using no-line coloring. I just LOVE how she colored the fur on him! He looks so fuzzy I want to pet him! Then she made the image into a fun shaker card, filled with tiny stars! The star theme continues with the tiny star patterned paper and the gold star washi tape! Then she finished it off with an the "have a sloth-some birthday" sentiment, also from the In Slow Motion stamp set, embossed in white on vellum and added on with a cute little heart and a tiny bit of doily! What a sloth-some card! 

Make sure you head over to say hello to Naki  and see more of her beautiful creations at her blog, Notes from Naki!

Special Delivery Card by April Guest Designer Kaja Vezensek


Hello there!
It's Kaja from Kajcyika crafts! I am back with a new card as a April guest designer here at Newton's Nook blog. Can't believe that this is last Monday in April! I had so much fun and I hope to be back on this blog sometime in the future. :)

Today we will talk about how to use your Christmas stamps in a non-christmas way. I will show you how to do so with a Newton's Nook Designs set called Winston's home for Christmas. :)

First, take a look of what I have created:

Special Delivery Card by April Guest Designer Kaja Vezensek | Winston's Home for Christmas Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I have also prepared a video tutorial for you. Make sure you check it out! :)



The most important thing while doing a technique like this is to know what do you want your image to look like in the end. I knew that I want the Christmas tree and the wreath to be gone, so I used my post it notes to mask it off.
I couldn't make the masks to fit perfectly, since the tree is also inside our car, so I just stamped the masked images on my watercolor paper and filled up the missing lines with my black alcohol marker.

I colored everything up with my ZIG markers and I used the colors that are not Christmas related at all, cause I didn't want this car to remind us of holidays. I think that this could be a perfect birthday card for a boy, since we have a cute car and the gifts on it.

Since I really wanted to focus on a technique of masking of a holiday stamp and making it non-holiday I decided to leave the rest of the card simple. I drew some stitched lines at the background and stamped the sentiment 'Special delivery' from Newton's happy mail set.

In the end I just glued down our card with the double sided rectangles and our birthday card was all finished!

I just want to say that I am really grateful for being a guest designer here at Newton's nook this month and I hope that you enjoyed my cards! :)

Hugs,

Glad You're My Special Friend Card by Ellen Haxelmans

Glad You're My Special Friend Card by Ellen Haxelmans | Cat Stamp sets by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Kitty Friendship Card!

Ellen is amazing at making scenes on her cards and today's card is one of my favorites! Those kitties hanging out together having coffee and cake are SO adorable! She did such an amazing job coloring all those cute images and giving them a fun watercolor background!

She used several of our stamp and die sets to create this adorable scene! The kitty with the french press and the coffee cups are from the  Newton Loves Coffee stamp set! The kitty with the cake on a plate is from our Newton Love Cake stamp set. Then she added on the cute birdie and butterflies from the Newton's Birdbath stamp set. What a fun combo of images! She also snuck in a bit of grass behind those kitty friends using the grass border from our Land Borders Die Set.

To finish the card she added in a custom sentiment she created using "Glad you're my" and "friend" from the new Simply Relative stamp set and the word "special" from the new Lovely Blooms stamp set! These two sets have words that work so perfectly together!
Stamped Butterfly Earrings by Ellen Haxelmans | Newton's Birdbath Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook
Then, for some more fun, she created these adorable earrings using the little butterfly from the Newton's Birdbath stamp set! She colored the cute little butterflies and trimmed them out with the coordinating Newton's Birdbath Die Set before inserting them into those cute little earrings! What a fun little gift this would make for a friend!

Special Delivery Card by April Guest Designer Kaja Vezensek

Hello there!
It's Kaja from Kajcyika crafts! I am back with a new card as a April guest designer here at Newton's nook blog.

I decided that I want to use one of the stamps of Newton, since they are all so adorable. The one I had chosen is called Newton's Happy Mail!

Take a look of what I have created:

Special Delivery Card by April Guest Designer Kaja Vezensek using Newton's Happy Mail Stamp set #newtonsnook

As promised, I have a video tutorial for you. So make sure you check it out! :)


First thing that I had to do was to decide which paper I am gonna use. I decided to go with Neenah desert storm and normal white card stock. I diecutted the rectangle in the middle and it was time to color our Newton!

I stamped the image from Newton's Happy Mail stamp set on my Derwent watercolor paper. I used the colors of ZIG markers that are really muted down to color the image, since I think that bright colors and kraft cardstock don't really go together. I added some gray lines on the Newton's head to make him a bit more realistic and interesting. In the end I just added some more details on the mailbox with my white gel pen.

To make the background a bit less boring, I stamped some paws using Distress Tea dye ink. The paws are from the same Newton's Happy Mail set and I stamped them in the random order.

Of course we also need a sentiment and I went with embossed 'special delivery' phrase in white on my black cardstock.

The last thing was to glue everything together. On all the pieces I used double sided tape and I added some foam rectangles on Newton to make it a bit more dimensional.

That's it for today. Hope that you like what I have created and that you will join me next Monday! 

Hugs,
