Birthday Clucks Card by Jennifer Jackson

Birthday Clucks Card by Jennifer Jackson | Cluck Stamp Set, Speech Bubbles Die Set and Hardwood Stencil by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

Birthday Clucks!

Hello! Jen here today with a fun chicken themed birthday card using our Cluck Stamp Set! This new chicken stamp set has so many fun puns and is perfect for creating silly birthday cards! For this card I stamped the trio of chickens, the hen sitting on the nest and the little chick from the stamp set. I colored all the images with copics and then cut them out using the coordinating Cluck Die Set. I wanted to stack the chickens in the middle of the card so I added them over a dark brown piece of cardstock and cut out two speech bubbles using our Speech Bubbles Die Set. I added the sentiments "What the cluck?" and "The talk around the henhouse is..." into the speech bubbles and then stamped the "It's your Birthday" sentiment on the bottom of the panel. I love how you can mix and match the funny sentiments in this set together to create a custom message.  For the background I used our new Hardwood Stencil to create a fun woodgrain panel.

I hope that this card today makes you smile!

Have a great Friday!

Ear-Resistable Sloth Card by Samantha Mann

Ear-Resistable Sloth Card by Samantha Mann | In Slow Motion Stamp Set, Newton's Easter Basket Stamp Set and Tropical Leaves Stencil by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

Ear-resistable Sloth!

Today have an adorable sloth card by Samantha that is perfect for Spring! She started with the cute sloth from our In Slow Motion Stamp Set. She colored the image and added on some leaves from our Toucan Party Stamp Set and fussy cut the image out.  She also added some adorable bunny ears to the sloth by stamping the image of Newton wearing bunny ears from our Newton's Easter Basket Stamp Set and coloring and fussy cutting out just the ears! What a fun idea!

For the background she created an awesome background of leaves using our Tropical Leaves Stencil and distress inks. Then she added the sloth image over the top of the background. She also added the "you are ear-resistable" sentiment, stamped from our Bitty Bunnies Stamp Set, on a black banner.

Here's a close up:

Sweet Hello Card by Andrea Shell

Sweet Hello Card by Andrea Shell | Netwon's Birdhouse Stamp Set, Land Borders Die Set, Fence Die Set, and Speech Bubbles Die Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

A Sweet Hello!

Today Andrea created the cutest little scene for our kitty to hang out in! She started with the adorable image of the kitty and birdhouse from our new Newton's Birdhouse Stamp Set. She colored the image of the kitty using copics and added all kind of details! The stripes and white paws on the kitty are so lovely and she also accented the image by adding little highlights with a white gel pen. Then she cut the image out using the Newton's Birdhouse Die Set to add to her scene.

Sweet Hello Card by Andrea Shell | Netwon's Birdhouse Stamp Set, Land Borders Die Set, Fence Die Set, and Speech Bubbles Die Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

For her scene she used our Land Borders Die Set to create a layer of green grass. She colored the grass using distress ink and added some splashes of water for the fun speckled look. She added a really cool fence line using our Fence Border Die. It's so cool how she cut the fence out using the die set and then made it look dimensional by coloring it to add highlights and shadows! She also added the "hello" sentiment and heart inside the thought bubble from our new Speech Bubbles Die Set.  This adorable card would be perfect for sending a happy hello to any of your friends!

Thank you for the lovely inspiration today, Andrea! To see more beautiful projects by Andrea, you can visit her over at her blog, Blissfully Scrappy too!

Duo of Farm Cards by Maria Russell

Farm Card by Maria Russell | Moo and Cluck Stamp Sets and Land Borders Die Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

Cute Fram Cards!

Today we are sharing two adorable farm cards by Maria using our adorable new farm sets! For the first card she created a fun farm scene featuring the cow from our Moo Stamp Set and the rooster from our Cluck Stamp Set. She colored the cute farm friends using copic markers and cut them out using the coordinating Moo Die Set and Cluck Die Set. She also colored two bales of hay and the little barn from the Moo Stamp Set to add to her scene.

Farm Card by Maria Russell | Moo and Cluck Stamp Sets and Land Borders Die Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade



For the scene, she created a fun sky filled with clouds using our Cloudy Sky Stencil. Then she created a fun little hill for the barn to sit on and added some trees (dies from another brand). Along the bottom she also added a layer of grass using our Land Borders Die Set. The sentiment "You're moo-velous" was added into the sky. So fun!

Pig Card by Maria Russell | Oink Stamp Set and Land Borders Die Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade
For her second card she created two little mini scenes featuring the pigs from our new Oink Stamp Set! She colored those cuties and added in fun little details like extra speckles and dots on their cheeks! So cute! Then she added them onto two little scenes for her card. She added in hills and grass using our Land Borders Die Set and a fence using the new Fence Die. She also added in cute little chicks from our Newton's Peeps Stamp Set.

Believe In Your Dreams Card by April Guest Designer Candice Fisher



It’s Springtime and for me that means coming out of hibernation from being buried in snow here in Minnesota!
I think this card using Newton Makes Plans Stamp Set is perfect for all the activities I can now go out and do!
The inspiration for this card comes from my daughter in college and son who is about to graduate high school.  I look at all the different Newtons in this set and see all the dreams that my kids can do!

Believe In Your Dreams Card by April Guest Designer Candice Fisher | Newton Makes Plans Stamp Set, Once Upon a Princess Stamp Set and Bokeh Stencil Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade
To begin my card, I trimmed watercolor paper to the size of my card and inked it with spun sugar oxide ink.  I then used the Bokeh Stencil Set to create the circles, first with worn lipstick and then second with abandoned coral. The awesome thing about this stencil set is that they have very faint lines of the circles from the other stencil for easy lining up! Genius! I felt that the eye wasn’t drawn in, so I added a light inking of abandoned coral around the edges. 
Believe In Your Dreams Card by April Guest Designer Candice Fisher | Newton Makes Plans Stamp Set, Once Upon a Princess Stamp Set and Bokeh Stencil Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade
I die cut the frame and inked each square along the bottom with cracked pistachio.  I pop dotted the frame at an angle and glued the squares in the center of each and trimmed the bottom with scissors.  For the rectangle I stamped the sentiment from the Once upon a Princess Stamp Set.  Next, I stamped all the mini Newtons, colored with copic markers, and die cut them out with the coordinating dies.  I am in love with mini stamps and I definitely recommend the coordinating dies to make it easier, (I, of course, have to use all of them on one card)!
Believe In Your Dreams Card by April Guest Designer Candice Fisher | Newton Makes Plans Stamp Set, Once Upon a Princess Stamp Set and Bokeh Stencil Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade
To finish this fun card, I simply added the die cut you layered along the top.  I tried sequins and other accents, but it seemed to take away from these cuties so I kept it simple.  A hard concept for me to not add sparkle or shine! 
Just an FYI, my daughter is currently either the Newton in the laundry basket sleeping or the one buried in the book, while my son is the one exercising or joining his sister in the laundry basket!
I am so glad that you swung by and wish you a happy week!
Remember, you can always join in the Inky Paws Challenge for your chance to win!
