Peony Card by Farhana Sarker | Peony Blooms and Blooming Botanicals Stamp Sets, Frames & Flags Die Set and Bold Blooms Stencil by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

Friends are Flowers Peony Card!

Today we are sharing a gorgeous spring floral card by Farhana! This amazing floral card features the lovely peony blooms from our Peony Blooms Stamp Set. She embossed the two of the flower images with gold embossing powder and then colored the blooms in gorgeous hues of pink. She fussy cut her blooms out by hand but if you don't like to hand cut, you could use the coordinating Peony Blooms Die Set instead. 

For the card base, she embossed a lovely floral background by using our Bold Blooms Stencil and passing it through her die cutting platform to create a dry embossed background texture. Then she layered the lovely colored blooms onto the lower corner using dimensional adhesives. She also added the sentiment, embossed in gold from our Blooming Botanicals Stamp Set. The black banner was die cut using a banner from our Frames & Flags Die Set and perfectly frames the sentiment.

Coffee Card Set by Tina Herbeck | Newton Loves Coffee, Newton's Mug and Love Café Stamp Sets and Framework Die Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

Coffee Card Trio!

Today we are sharing a fun trio of coffee themed cards by Tina! This fun set of cards shows how you can use the same design to create a fun set of cards simply by changing the images!

She started out by choosing three fun coffee themed stamp sets. She used the kitty in the big mug from our Newton's Mug Stamp Set, the kitty hugging a travel mug from our Newton Loves Coffee Stamp Set and the duo of heart mugs from our Love Café Stamp Set. She embossed these images and sentiments from the sets onto watercolor panels with white embossing powder and then used distress inks to paint colors over the top. She chose yummy shades of pink and brown that go perfectly with the coffee theme. Each panel was also die cut with our Framework Die Set to give it a fun decorative postage edge. She also finished them off by adding iridescent sequins for a bit of sparkle. 

Here are some close-ups so you can see the amazing details.

Sweet Flowers for Sympathy

Today we are sharing a sweet floral sympathy card by Zsofia. It is always sad when you need to create a sympathy card but they are essential to have on hand. This lovely floral card is perfect for letting someone know you that you care. 

She created this lovely card by using stamping the bouquet of daisies from our Dainty Daisies Stamp Set twice. She colored the florals with soft pinks and yellow centers and used the coordinating Dainty Daisies Die Set to cut them out. Behind the flowers she added a soft gray woodgrain background by using our Hardwood Stencil with gray ink. She also added a few butterfly silhouettes using our Monarchs Stamp Set. The sentiment was stamped from our Heartfelt Essentials Stamp Set. The Heartfelt Essentials Stamp Set is filled with sentiments that are perfect for sending caring thoughts. The sentiment was embossed onto a banner that was die cut out using our Banner Trio Die Set.  All of the sentiment on this set will fit onto the banner dies too, which makes them really versatile. 

To add a finishing touch, a postage edged panel was added to frame the image using our Framework Die Set

Easy Ink Blended Cards!

Today Larissa is featuring a beautiful set of ink blended cards! Not only are these cards gorgeous, they are also quick and easy to create. She started by stamping the large circle of flowers Floral Roundabout Stamp Set multiple times and embossing it with white embossing powder. Then she simply blended over it with colored ink.  She added some black paint splatters and sequins for texture and sparkle. For the sentiments, she chose two phrases from our Birthday Roundabout Stamp Set and stamped them onto rounded edge banners from our Banner Trio Die Set. Then she layered a coordinating patterned paper behind each panel, die cutting the scalloped edge with our Frames & Flags Die Set

Happy Easter Card by Tatiana Trafimovich

Happy Easter card by Tatiana Trafimovich | Spring Roundabout Stamp Set, Bunny Tails Stencil Set and Circle Frames Die Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Happy Easter!

Easter is just around the corner! Today we are sharing an a fun Easter themed card by Tatiana that is perfect for celebrating!

Her card features the adorable round image filled with easter baskets, carrots, chicks and bunnies from our Spring Roundabout Stamp Set.  She colored the image in fun bright pastel colors and cut it out using the  Circle Frames Die Set. This image is sized perfectly to cut out using the large circle or scalloped circe from this die set! She embossed the "Happy Easter" Sentiment on black cardstock with white embossing powder and hand cut around it to layer it over the image. A few irridescent sequins give a bit of shimmery detail too. 

For the card base she used our two piece Bunny Tails Stencil Set. She stenciled the bunny silhouettes with a light brown ink using the first stencil and then used a darker brown ink with the second stencil for their tails! The etching on the stencils makes it easy to perfectly line them up! She then added some brown and white splatters to add a fun bit of detail to the background. Some twine gives the perfect finishing touch.
