You're Tiki-rific Card and Video by Holly Endress

You're Tiki-rific Card by Holly Endress | Tiki Time Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Tropical Tiki!

Are you ready for summer? This cheerful Tiki card by Holly will put you in the mood for some tropical sun and tiki drinks! She used the two adorable tiki mug faces from our Tiki Time stamp set to create the fun duo of tropical drinks! She also added in straws and an umbrella, trimming it out with the coordinating Tiki Time Die Set. Then she added them onto that fun card base with some bright tropical patterned paper and the "You're Tiki-riffic" sentiment! So fun!

Here's a video by Holly showing you how she created her tiki card:

You're Lovely Card by May Guest a designer Cassie Tezak


Good morning, everyone! Happy Monday! Er, well...I hope you're having the happiest Monday you can anyways :) I'm back with another Newton's Nook card to share with you. Today I'm using the beautiful flowers from the Lovely Blooms set.
 You're Lovely Card by May Guest a designer Cassie Tezak | Lovely Blooms Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I started by stamping a bunch of the flowers and leaves on some Neenah Solar White card stock with some Momento Tuxedo Black ink, because I wanted to color these in with my Copics. I cut all of the pieces out and set them aside while I worked on the other parts of my card. For one of the flowers I decided to make it a piece of wood instead of a flower. It is the one of the lower left side. I love that it gives a little versatility.

You're Lovely Card by May Guest a designer Cassie Tezak | Lovely Blooms Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I die cut a couple pieces to really highlight my flower arrangement and glued them all together. I added all of the flowers with foam tape and stamped my sentiment from the Lovely Blooms set with some VersaMark ink on a banner cut from vellum. I love that the transparency of the vellum allows you to see the flowers beneath and doesn't take away from them. To finish the card I added a couple Nuvo clear drops and some white gel pen accents. That's my card for today. I hope you enjoyed it! I just love the flowers in the Lovely Blooms set. The fun thing about them is all the different ways you can color and arrange them. I hope you have a great rest of your Monday! I'll see you again with another card!

Hello Honey Card by May Guest Designer Cassie Tezak


Happy Monday, everyone! I hope everyone had a great weekend! I'm back with another card using some adorable Newton's Nook products. I wanted to use my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers, so that's where my card for today started!

IMG_1001Hello Honey Card by May Guest Designer Cassie Tezak | Winston's Honeybees Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook 
I started by cutting down some Bristol Smooth card stock to 4 1/4 by 4 1/4. I stamped the sweet little bee hive and heart stamp from the Winston's Honeybees set all over the piece of paper. I used my Zigs to color them in.

Hello Honey Card by May Guest Designer Cassie Tezak | Winston's Honeybees Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I used a light gray color to fill in the background. I completely fell in love with this color combo. It is so soft and pretty. For my sentiment I wasn't sure how I wanted to add it without letting it get lost in the background. I die cut two hearts, one from vellum and one from Neenah Solar White card stock. I stamped the sentiment in VersaMark and heat embossed white embossing power on the vellum heart. Then I used my Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide ink to ink blend on the back of the vellum.

  Hello Honey Card by May Guest Designer Cassie Tezak | Winston's Honeybees Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I glued the vellum to the white heart and added some Spectrum Noir shimmer over the top of the vellum. I attached the heart with foam tape to the center of the handmade background.

  Hello Honey Card by May Guest Designer Cassie Tezak | Winston's Honeybees Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

To finish off the card I added some black dots in the background just to fill in the empty spaces. And that's it for my card today! I hope you liked it. Thank you so much for stopping by. I'll have another card for you soon!
