Sweet Deer and Wreath Card by Tatiana Trafimovich

Sweet deer card with Wreath by Tatiana Trafimovich | Festive Fawns Stamp set and Pines & Holly Die Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

Such a "Deer" Noel Card!

Today we have a lovely deer themed Holiday card by Tatiana. She used the sweet image of the deer wearing a holiday wreath from our new Festive Fawns Stamp Set. She colored the image of the deer and the little bird, also from the Festive Fawns Stamp Set and cut them out using the coordinating Festive Fawns Die Set. For her card she continued on the wreath theme and created a wreath using branches that she die cut using our Pines & Holly Die Set in two shades of green. She arranged them in a circle on her card and added the deer and bird in the corner. She added the "noel" sentiment  on the opposite side of the wreath as the fawn, using a die cut from the Main Street Christmas Die Set. The background of the card also featured some snowflakes in white from the Festive Fawns Stamp Set. Such a sweet pairing! A baker's twine bow and some sparkly berries on the wreath give the perfect finishing touch!

Here's a close up so you can see all the fun sparkle on the nose of the fawn and the berries on the wreath!

Trick or Treat Card by Nakaba Rager


Trick or Treat Card by Nakaba Rager | Knights Quest Stamp Set, Once Upon a Princess Stamp Set, Spooky Street Stamp Set and Halloween Trio Die Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

Trick or Treat!!

Halloween is tomorrow! Are you ready? Today we are sharing a fun trick or treat card by Naki! For her card she created two adorable kids dressed for trick or treating using the princess from our Once Upon a Time Stamp Set and the knight from our Knights Quest Stamp Set. She was inspired by the costume choices of her kids this year who will be going as a prince and princess! She colored the images with gorgeous no-line coloring and then cut them out using the coordinating Once Upon a Time Die Set and Knights Quest Die Set. She also tucked a purple pumpkin candy holder behind the princess using the image from our Dress Up Doxies Stamp Set! What a fun idea!

To set the scene for these cuties she used the spooky house and graveyard from our Spooky Street Stamp Set. She dressed the scene up with a glittery gold moon in the sky that she added in using our Bokeh Stencil Set as a template for the circle. She also added in some die cut bats and the "trick or treat" die cut sentiment from our Halloween Trio Die Set. What a fun sweet scene with a little touch of spookiness! So perfect for Halloween!

Holiday Wishes for a Deer Friend Card by Ellen Haxelmans


Holiday Wishes for a Deer Friend Card by Ellen Haxelmans | Festive Fawns Stamp Set, Snow Globe Scene Stamp Set, Starfield Stencil and Sea and Land Border Die Sets by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

Deer Friends Card!

Today Ellen has combined several fun products to create an adorable winter scene! This scene features the image of the deer peeking around the snowman from our new Festive Fawns Stamp Set. She colored this sweet image and cut it out using the coordinating Festive Fawns Die Set. To make a fun scene she paired it with the little row of houses from our Snow Globe Scenes Stamp Set in the background. She added to the winter theme with layers of snowy hills cut out using our Land Borders Die Set and Sea Borders Die Set. The sparkly sky was created using sparkly embossing paste with our Starfield Stencil. Then she framed the whole thing using  he postage edge from our Framework Die Set.

Ellen is a genius at creating scenes! Do you like to create scenes but don't know where to start? See her tips below on how she created this one!

Tips on creating this scene!

Below we have some tips from Ellen on how she created a fun winter scene!

Holiday Wishes for a Deer Friend Card by Ellen Haxelmans | Festive Fawns Stamp Set, Snow Globe Scene Stamp Set, Starfield Stencil and Sea and Land Border Die Sets by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade
  1. Color your images as you like. I used images from the Festive Fawns Stamp Set and Snow Globe Scenes Stamp Set. Here I used Zig Markers, these are watercolor markers. They help you to have more control over your watercoloring. The images were cut out using their coordinating die sets.
  2. Then you can make your background. First I watercolored my background with Holbein Watercolors. Secondly I also added Glitz Glitter Gell in white by using the Starfield Stencil.
  3. When everything is dry you can put your card together. I used the biggest frame from the Framework Die Set and added snow hills by cutting borders with the Land Borders Die Set and Sea Borders Die Set.
There are so many fun ways to combine our products for creative scenes! We love hearing the process on how Ellen created this!

Peace on Earth Card by Samantha Mann


Peace on Earth Card by Samantha Mann | Fox Hollow Stamp Set by  Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

Peace on Earth!

This peaceful scene by Samantha is perfect for sharing some sun on a cold winter day!

She started out by creating a background with a sparkly snowy sky using our Petite Snow Stencil over the blue sky with a yellow glow.  She used white embossing paste and glitter embossing powder for the snow! Once it was dry, she heat embossed the glitter powder to create a sparkly effect.

For the scene she used the cute little fox from our Fox Hollow Stamp Set and colored him in shades of orange, adding a blue scarf and some white gel pen details. She added in trees, also from the Fox Hollow Stamp Set, and snowy hills using our Land Borders Die Set. On the fox  and the hills and trees she added yellow glows so show the warm sun rising over the hill. Isn't it so darling how the fox is soaking up a the warm sun? The images were fussy cut to add onto the card but if you don't like fussy cutting, this set does have a coordinating die set so you could use that instead.

We Hop you can play along since there are some really awesome sponsors and prizes, including one from us at Newton's Nook Designs

Here's what I created:
2019 Cat Lovers Hop! Birthday Cat Card by Jennifer Jackson | Newton's Birthday Balloons stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade
If you're like me, I never have enough birthday cards on hand so when I do have time to create that's what I usually like to make! For this card I grabbed the cute image of the kitty with the trio of balloons from our Newton's Birthday Balloons Stamp Set. I kept the coloring really simple and didn't do any shading, just added flat colors using copic markers to make a quick and easy card. 

For the background I used our Bokeh Stencil Set to create a cool two color pattern. If you haven't used these fun  stencil sets yet, they are so fun to use! The unique Stencil Sets include two pieces and each piece has an etching of the other layer so you can easily line up the layers and create two color patterns. For this card I used pink and yellow.

My card featuring Pumpkin Latte stamp set , Pumpkin Latte Die Set and Fancy Edges Tag Die Set.

I adore this stamp set!

To make this card I took an A2 panel of Bristol smooth cardstock and cut it with this tag die.

The background was created by blending dried marigold distress oxide ink and ripe persimmon distress oxide ink.

I also splashed white acrylic paint on it.

I love making Fall cards so I was excited to see this challenge theme was FALL! I grabbed the deer pulling the wagon of pumpkins from our Harvest Tails Stamp Set and colored the image using Zig Watercolor markers. I thought it was fun to make the wagon teal but otherwise stuck to fall colors. I cut the image out using our coordinating Harvest Tails Die Set
