A duo of Wanted Birthday Cards by Amanda Bodine


WANTED: A cute duo of kitty cards!!

Yay! It's Friday! Today we have an awesome duo of western themed cards by Amanda! She created these fun "Wanted"cards using our Newton Rides West stamp set! She started each card by creating an ombr√© watercolor background and then added the "Wanted" on the top and pairing it with different sentiments on the bottom! She colored two of the cute kitty images from this set along with two cactus images and trimmed them out using the coordinating Newton Rides West Die Set. Don't you just love the vibrant coloring she used and the fun white highlights!? Then she aded them to her cards and used a couple of different background papers. This is a such a great idea! Once you have a card layout chosen it's so easy to change it up slightly and create a bunch of cards quickly! So Awesome!  

Thanks for the fun inspiration today, Amanda! To see more of her beautiful coloring and projects, visit Amanda over at her blog,  RutabagaPie Designs!

Peek-a-Boo Card!

Today we are sharing another amazing interactive card by Tatiana! This fun card features Newton in his cute little cowboy hat and bandana from the new Newton Rides West stamp set. She colored colored the kitty in fun bright colors and added the fun cactus from the set behind him. She also added some colorful arrows pointing towards him using our Points & Plumes Die Set. The big bold "Wanted" is also from Newton Rides West stamp set and was embossed with white on black cardstock.

Now for the peek-a-boo part! From the front of the card it looks like that image of Newton is on the inside of the card inside that circle window but when you open it Newton disappears and instead you see a message:

Feline Unwell Card by June Guest Designer Simone Naoum

Hello There!

I am back today with my final card as a guest designer for the month of June at Newton's Nook Designs. I have had so much fun being a guest designer this month and playing with their super cute products, and I hope to be back again sometime in the future.

Today's card is a very CAS get well card I created using the adorable Newton's Sick Day stamp and die sets. I absolutely love this set with its sweet images of Newton and the fun pun sentiments! Be sure to keep an eye out on my blog for more cards using this set!

Feline Unwell Card by June Guest Designer Simone Naoum | Newton's Sick Day Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

To create this card I began by stamping my sentiment onto my plain white card base, before stamping the image of Newton and the pill bottle onto some X-Press It blending cardstock.  I then coloured the images using some Copic Sketch markers before die cutting them out.  After they were dry I coloured the label on the pill bottle as well as Newton's medical hat and his mane with some clear Wink of Stella glitter for some sparkle, before sticking them down onto my card base using adhesive foam.  Finally I embellished the card with some white and silver sequins.

I hope you enjoyed my final guest DT card today?  I just want to say that I am really grateful for being this month's guest designer at Newton's Nook Designs and I hope you all have a wonderful day!


Thank you for stopping by :)

Here's what I created:
Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop | Coffee & Cactus Card by Jennifer Jackson | Cuppa Cactus Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade
I used our BRAND NEW Cuppa Cactus stamp set! This set was part of our recent June release and I've been having so much fun playing with it. It has two cute little cactus images in mugs and some really great puns for coffee lovers! 

Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop | Coffee & Cactus Card by Jennifer Jackson | Cuppa Cactus Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade
To make the card I started by coloring the two cacti in mugs using copic markers. Then I trimmed them out with the coordinating Cuppa Cactus Die Set. I took a piece of watercolor paper and added some distress ink in yellow and green to my craft mat and squished it onto the paper to make the background. I added a little hill cut from polka dot paper using our Land Borders Die Set. Then I added the sentiment "Caution: I'm a little prickly before my coffee" using the sentiments from the Cuppa Cactus stamp set. To finish off the card I added some hot pink twine and then mounted everything on a kraft colored card base.

Custom Envelope Card by Ellen Haxelmans

Custom Envelope Card by Ellen Haxelmans | Lovely Blooms  Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Create a custom Envelope Card!

Today we have a fun idea by Ellen on how to make a custom card where the envelope and card are one piece! She was inspired by aerograms (or air letters) that were used during the use during the Second World War. These lightweight self-sealing letter cards were introduced for easy sending through airmail!

To make her card, Ellen used an envelope punch board to create the envelope shape out of yellow cardstock. Then she added some stamping to the front panel using flowers from our Lovely Blooms stamp set.

Custom Envelope Card by Ellen Haxelmans |  Terrific Terriers Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook
She added some magnet strips on the inside of the envelope flaps and then created some fun pieces to make a cute scene inside the card. She used the cute puppy from our new Terrific Terriers stamp set along with little clouds from the Winston Takes Flight stamp set and flowers from the Happy Little Thoughts stamp set. 

Custom Envelope Card by Ellen Haxelmans |  Terrific Terriers Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Here's what the front of the closed envelope looks like. She used blooms from the Lovely Blooms stamp set on the background and created a custom sentiment using words from both the Simply Relative  and the Lovely Blooms stamp sets.

Custom Envelope Card by Ellen Haxelmans | Lovely Blooms and Simply Sentimental Stamp Sets by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

For the back side of the closed envelope she added a fun wreath using the  Happy Little Thoughts stamp set. Then she stamped the sentiment inside it and the ribbon using the Terrific Terriers stamp set.

Wanted poster Card by Juliana Michaels

Wanted poster Card by Juliana Michaels | Newton Rides West Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

WANTED! 

Our new Newton Rides West stamp set is perfect for creating fun western themed cards! Today we are sharing this adorable birthday card by Juliana! She colored the cute kitty wearing the cowboy hat and cactus from this set and she even and added on the mustache too! How adorable is that?  The images were all trimmed out using the coordinating Newton Rides West Die Set. The bit of twine to create a rope behind the kitty is so fun and the distressing she added to the paper really gives a fun old timey western feeling too!

To make this fun little western scene into a birthday card, Juliana used the "Wanted" paired with "for celebrating another birthday" from the Newton Rides West stamp set. You could also pair the "Wanted" with the "for being awesome" sentiment in this set too if you don't need a birthday card!

Thanks, Juliana, for the fun card today! To see more creations by Juliana, visit her over to her blog, 17 Turtles!

Tee-rific Dad Card by June Guest Designer Simone Naoum

Hello Everyone

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend? Today I'm back with another Newton's Nook Designs card for you all, and this one uses the fun new Winston's Tee Time stamp and die sets.

When I first saw this stamp set I knew it was a must have, especially to create cards for guys who love golf, as well as Father's Day cards, which I'm getting a bit of head start on with today's card!

Tee-rific Dad Card by June Guest Designer Simone Naoum | Winston's Tee Time stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnok

I started this card by first arranging and stamping my sentiment onto a plain white card base, before stamping Winston onto some X-press It blending card, and again onto some patterned paper for his shirt. I then coloured Winston using my Copic Sketch Markers, before paper piecing his patterned paper shirt onto him.  Once he was dry I then covered his collar and the golf ball with some clear Wink of Stella glitter for a bit of shimmer, before die cutting them out and sticking them down onto my card base using some adhesive foam.  Finally I embellished the card with some matching coloured sequins.

That's my card for today and I hope it inspires you to get a head start on creating some Father's Day cards?!

Thank you all for stopping by today, and I'll be back again next Monday with my final card for Newton's Nook Designs.


Have a great day.
 - Simone
