This cute image was added onto a scene that was created using our Land Borders Die Set for grass and hills, our Fence Die Set and our Sky Scene Builder Die Set to add clouds. Over the sky she created a custom sentiment by spelling her friends name using letters die cut out with our Essential Alphabet Die Set. She also added "hello"  and some tiny hearts from the Newton's Birdhouse Stamp Set

How to create this card:

Below we have some instructions from Ellen on how to create this card.

  1. (left photo) I colored the images from the Newton's Rain Boots Stamp Set with Copic Markers:
    Ducks: beak YR16, Y38, YR31, body Y17 + Y17, Y15, Y13, Y11 + belly Y02, Y00, Y000
    Cat: body Y28, E43, E41, E40 + ears: RV13, RV42, E02
    Boots: gold Y28, Y26, Y21 + pink RV06, RV04, RV02, R000 + light purple RV19, RV17, RV14, RV06, RV04 + dark purple V09, BV08, BV04
    Flowers: leaves YG07, YG05, YG03, YG00 + blue BG13, BG11, BG10 + yellow YR16, Y35, Y13
    Hearts: RV04, RV21, RV00.

  2. (center photo) Next I created the background using the Sky Scene Builder Die SetLand Borders Die Set and Fence Die Set and distress ink.

  3. (right photo) As last step I added the message on the card. I transferred the foil on top of a Transfer Sheet. I did cut a piece of foil slightly larger than the design. Then I placed foil, color side up, on top of the back side of the Transfer Sheet. I placed both pieces inside a folded parchment paper. Next inserted the folded parchment paper with the project into a hot laminator. As the last step, I took out the project and peeled the foil transfer sheet away to reveal the foiled piece of paper! It was time to die cut the name out of this glimmer paper using the Essential Alphabet Die Set!
We hope you enjoyed this fun project today and instructions from Ellen! To see more unique creations by Ellen, you can visit her over at her blog Crafty Ellen!

Newton Celebrates with Butterflies!

Today Amanda has created a gorgeous butterfly themed card that is perfect for celebrating any occasion! To create the beautiful shiny butterfly background she used our Butterflies Stencil Set. This stencil set is a two piece layering design so she used the first layer that has the butterfly silhouettes and added black ink. Then she used the second layer which includes the wing patterns to large orange foil onto the wings! So gorgeous!  She created this into a card base, framing it with a black scalloped edge that was die cut using our Frames & Flags Die Set and layering it over a purple card base. 

Next, she colored that cute image of the kitty chasing butterflies from the Newton's Flower Garden Stamp Set. She even coordinated the colors on the butterflies so that they match the background pattern and the flowers to match the card base. She cut the image out using the coordinating Newton's Flower Garden Die Set. Then she added the image to her card, layering it over a vellum heart that was cut out using our Heart Frames Die Set

The finishing touch is the sentiment "Time to Celebrate" which was stamped from our Birthday Roundabout Stamp Set onto a banner that was cut out using our Banner Trio Die Set

Thinking of You Card by March Guest Designer Jane Trivedi

Hi friends!  It’s Jane here, sharing my last card as guest designer for Newton’s Nook Designs. Today, I'm featuring the adorable critters from the Woodland Spring Stamp Set.  Modeling paste and Serene Stripes Stencil also used to create a textured background to frame my scene.

Thinking of You Spring Card by March Guest Designer Jane Trivedi | Woodland Spring Stamp Set and Serene Stripes Stencil by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook
To create this card, I first stamped the floral image on a piece of Bristol cardstock. Next, I stamped the image on masking paper and cut the image using my scissors. The same process was repeated for all the images, stamping and then masking each image. Next, using a small blender brush, I blended the following Catherine Pooler Inks (left to right): chiffon, orange peel, coral cabana, be mine, pixie dust, and serenade.

After the blending was done, I colored the images using a fine water brush and Zig clean color brush markers.  Next, I used a black waterproof pen to go over the images adding thicker lines in some areas to create the illusion of shadow. Then, I added white gel pen highlights to the images and surrounding ink blended areas for a whimsical touch!
Thinking of You Spring Card by March Guest Designer Jane Trivedi | Woodland Spring Stamp Set and Serene Stripes Stencil by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

To create the textured background, I used the Serene Stripes Stencil  and white modeling paste on a piece of heavy weight watercolor paper. After the panel was dry, I cut the embossed panel to 5 inches by 3.75 inches. The ink blended panel was also cut and mounted on foam tape and adhered to the textured background.  Sentiment from the Woodland Spring Stamp Set was white heat embossed on black cardstock and adhered to the front of the card using foam tape.

The entire card front was mounted to a piece of light grey cardstock and then to an A2 white card base and that completes the card!

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Big thanks to Newton’s Nook Designs for having me as a guest this month! 

Happy crafting everyone!

Decorate a Custom Mug!

Today Amanda shares how she combined two stamp sets to create a gorgeous butterfly mug! She started out with the image of the kitty in a mug from our Newton's Mug Stamp Set. This image has a big blank mug, designed to stamp sentiments on the front, but it also works great to stamp a custom image on it too! Amanda masked off the edges of the mug and then used the pretty butterfly from our Monarchs Stamp Set to decorate the front! So gorgeous! She colored the mug and kitty and cut the image out using the coordinating Newton's Mug Die Set

For her card, she used dies from our Framework Die Set and Frames & Flags Die Set to create a frame. Behind the frame she used our Mugs Stencil with pale yellow ink to create a background that coordinates perfectly with the mug theme! 

For the sentiment she stamped "kit tea cat" from the Newton's Mug Stamp Set onto a circle that was cut out using our Frames Squared Die Set. Then she cut out a banner using our Banner Trio Die Set and stamped "you are loved" onto it using our Heartfelt Essentials Stamp Set
