Enjoy the Little Moments in Life Card by May Guest Designer Adam Karle

Adam Karle | Guest Designer for Newton's Nook Designs | May 2021

I want to tell you all how much I have enjoyed and appreciated this wonderful opportunity to share my work with you this month as a guest designer. The Newton’s Nook company has been great and their products are the best. I have several friends and family enjoying the fruits of my labor creating with their products.

My final card for the month as a guest designer is from the Garden Mice Stamp Set. This has to be one of my favorites because my mom loves all things mice. So this card will be for her.

The focal image from the set I chose is this cute mouse holding a huge mushroom.  I colored it using Copic Markers.

I decided to make the background in a rustic fashion.  I used wood grain card stock for the card base and the frame. The frame can be die cut using the Newton’s Nook Framework Die Set. I used a tree die cut that I had on hand but the trees could also be die cut using the Forest Scene Builder Die Set from Newton’s Nook.

Once I started the assembly I realized the wood grain paper was too dark so I cut and used a piece of craft paper to put behind the trees to lighten the scene. The white layer seemed to bright to me so I used some watered down acrylic black paint to splatter onto the layer. Then I attached the mouse and some bits of grass and sequins to finish the scene. The frame was attached using foam tape to give depth to the card.  My final step was to white emboss the sentiment onto a piece of dark red card stock. 

I hope you enjoyed following me this month and be sure and follow me at www.instagram.com/ark513 for more inspiration and ideas.

This design is part of our Retiring Products Sale right now, so if you like this adorable image, make sure to pop over to our shop and get it before it's gone for good! 

For her beary sweet holiday card, Samantha colored the image of our bear, Winston, driving a car laden with holiday goodies. She then fussy cut the image out by hand to layer it onto her card. For her card base, she created a gorgeous snowy scene. To create the snowy sky, she masked off part of the card at a diagonal and then added distress inks to the top along with white acrylic ink splatters. She also added to the festive feeling by adding ornaments to the sky using our Ornaments Stencil (also retiring) with white embossing paste. So beautiful!

Hello Summer Card by Amanda Wilcox

Cat and Watermelon Summer Card by Amanda Wilcox | Newton's Melon Stamp Set, Floral Fringe Stamp Set,Frames Squared Die Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Hello Summer!

Although we we are just finally enjoying spring weather here at NND Headquarters, today we are looking ahead to summer with this gorgeous card by Amanda! That kitty eating the watermelon from our Newton's Melon Stamp Set is so cute and we absolutely love the way she colored the image! The spots on the kitty are so fun and it's really cool how she added glossy accents to the watermelon seeds! This image was cut out using the coordinating Newton's Melon Die Set

For the fun tropical background, Amanda used our Tropical Fringe Stamp Set. she colored that fun square image in bright colors and then used the Frames Squared Die Set to cut it out with a scalloped edge. She also cut a piece of vellum using the same shape and layered it over the top to soften the colors! This really makes the kitty image pop! She also added the sentiment "hello summer" from the Tropical Fringe Stamp Set, stamped onto the circle that was die cut using the circle that's included in the Frames Squared Die Set

For the card base, she added a bit more summer fun by stenciling a water background using our Waves Stencil. This is the perfect finishing touch for this tropical theme!

Graduation Card by Jennifer Jackson

Cat themed Graduation Card by Jennifer Jackson | Newton's Graduation and Newton's Book Club Stamp Set, Frames & Flags and Framework Die Sets by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

A Kitty Themed Graduation!

Hello! Jen here today with a fun graduation card! For this card I combined two of our kitty sets. First, I used the image of the kitty with the graduation cap and scroll from our Newton's Graduation Stamp Set. Next, I added the image of the kitty on a stack of books from our Newton's Book Club. I thought these two images paired perfectly for a graduate who loves to read! I colored both images with zig clean color watercolor markers and then cut them out using their coordinating Newton's Graduation Die Set and Newton's Book Club Die Set

For the card base, I kept it simple and focused on the school colors of navy and yellow. I cut out a yellow scalloped panel using our Framework Die Set. Then I added the word "yay" from our Birthday Essentials. embossed in white onto a banner that was cut out of silver cardstock using our Frames & Flags Die Set. I then added the kitties around the banner and finished it off with the "Edu-CAT-ed" sentiment from the Newton's Graduation Stamp Set. I simply layered this over a navy panel and gray cardstock base.

I think this sunny and cheerful card would be perfect to let a graduate know how happy you are for them and their accomplishment!

I hope you enjoyed this card today! Thanks for stopping by!
