New Home Kitty Card by Samantha VanArnhem

New Home Card by Samantha VanArnhem | Newton Loves Boxes Stamp Set, Frames & Flags Die Set, Sky Borders Die Set, and Clouds Stencil by Newton's Nook Designs

New Home!

Do you know anyone who has recently moved?  Today we have an adorable kitty card by Samantha that is perfect for sending happy wishes to a new home owner!! She started out by stamping two images of kitties in cardboard boxes from our Newton Loves Boxes Stamp Set. She colored them in neutral colors, adding stripes to the gray kitty and used the Newton Loves Boxes Die Set to cut the images out. 

For her card she started with a white card base. For the scene she cut out a panel using the stitched rectangle from our Frames & Flags Die Set. She then cut the top again using our Sky Borders Die Set. She added layers of clouds on the top half using our Clouds Stencil and inked a green grass area on the bottom. This simple background gives the kitties such a lovely setting!

Spring Acetate Card by Farhana Sarker | Floral Roundabout Stamp Set, Circle Frames Die Set and Banner Trio Die Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

You are Amazing!!

Need a fun idea for a special card? Try acetate! This awesome card idea Farhana will definitely inspire you to think of fun and creative ways to make unique cards! She started out with the round floral image from our Floral Roundabout Stamp Set, embossing it in gold. She colored the image with copic markers and then cut it out using the large stitched circle from our Circle Frames Die Set. For the sentiment she stamped "You are Amazing" onto the rounded edge banner from our Banner Trio Die Set in gold. She ink blended over the sentiment with a pink to yellow blend to match the flowers! So pretty! 

Here is a close up so you can the beautiful details and embossing:

For her card, she used a sheet of acetate and cut it to the size for an A2 card base. scoring it on the top to create a clear card base. She adhered the floral circle image to the front and then cut out a white scalloped circle using the Circle Frames Die Set and adhered it behind the floral image on or the inside of the card. She also cut out a second scalloped circle using the Circle Frames Die Set and layered it on the card inside, lining them up so that when the card is closed you don't see the inside shape.

Hi everyone!  I’m a 30 something working professional living in southern California with my husband, daughter and westie. Paper crafting and card making have always been my favorite hobbies. I love designing with bright bold colors and using a variety of color combinations.

Hi Friends! I’m so happy to be guest designer at Newton’s Nook this month! Today, I’m sharing this lovely spring card using the Woodland Spring Stamp Set and some masking paper.

Welcome Spring Card by March Guest Designer Jane Trivedi | Woodland Spring Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

To create this scene, I first stamped the image of the deer using copic friendly black ink onto a piece of white A2 cardstock. Then, I stamped the same image onto masking paper and cut the image using scissors. Next, I placed the mask on the image and also used some masking paper to mask off the bottom portion of the card. The following distress inks were used to blend the background (top to bottom): kitsch flamingo, dried marigold and spun sugar.

Welcome Spring Card by March Guest Designer Jane Trivedi | Woodland Spring Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

After removing all the masks, I added the sentiment “welcome spring” from the Woodland Spring Stamp Set. Then, a few flowers and leaves were added to the bottom of the card to fill in the white space. Images were colored using the following copic makers:

Deer: E0000, E51, E53, E33
Bird: BG10, BG11, B000, B0000
Flowers: YR16, Y17, Y21, RV55, R02, V06, RV52
Leaves: BG32, YG01
White gel pen used to add accents to the images.

The panel was then cut down to 5 inches by 3.75 inches and adhered to a piece of A2 Bazzill cardstock (color is butter mints). The entire front panel was then adhered to a white A2 card base.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! 
Can’t wait to share more with you all this month!

Farm Themed Baby Card by Ellen Haxelmans | Baa, Oink, Cluck, Moo and Loveable Laundry Stamp Sets, Gingham and Cloudy Sky Stencils, and Land Borders and Circle Frames Die Sets by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Welcome Little Boy!

Today Ellen has created a wonderful farm themed card to welcome a baby boy! For this card she features several of our farm themed sets together to create an adorable scene! For the farm friends she uses the pig from our Oink Stamp Set, the lamb from our Baa Stamp Set and the chick from our Cluck Stamp Set. She also uses the hay bale and barn from our Moo Stamp Set to set the scene. All the images were cut out with their coordinating die sets (find them all in our farm category). 

She used our Circle Frames Die Set to create the circle and scalloped circle that frames the scene. She also used our Cloudy Sky Stencil and Land Borders Die Set to complete the scene.

To make this into a baby card she adds the sentiment "welcome little boy" by combining words from our Loveable Laundry Stamp Set. The word "welcome" was added to a banner that was cut out using our Banner Trio Die Set. Our Gingham Stencil on the background with yellow ink really adds to the sweet baby theme!

How to create this card:

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

  1. (left photo) Using Distress Ink and the Gingham Stencil I made the base of the card..

  2. (center photo) I created a scene in the biggest frame from Circle Frames Die Set. I started with the grass and the hill. This was created with the Land Borders Die Set. I colored these borders with Distress Ink. For the sandy hill I also sprinkled brown, white and water splatters on top. The clouds were created with the Cloudy Sky Stencil and white glitter gel from Therm O Web.

  3. (right photo) The last step was to color the images with Copic Markers and then assemble it all together.
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!

Colorful Easter Bunnies Card by Maria Russell | Hop Into Spring Stamp Set, Bunny Tails Stencil Set, Clouds Stencil, Circle Frames Die Set and Land Borders Die Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

Colorful Easter Bunnies!

Today we have a bright and cheerful Easter card by Maria to share! She created rows of adorable bunnies in bright colors using our Bunny Tails Stencil Set. This stencil set has two layers and she used the second "tail" layer to add fluffy white tails to all the bunnies using white texture paste! So cute! 

For her card, she cut a large circle out of the colorful bunny pattern using our Circle Frames Die Set to hold a cute little bunny scene that features the bunny holding a daffodil from our Hop Into Spring Stamp Set. She colored the cute bunny using alcohol markers and then cut it out with the coordinating Hop Into Spring Die Set. She also filled the circle with a scene, creating clouds with our Clouds Stencil and adding die cut grass using our Land Borders Die Set. The sentiment, "happy Easter" from our Newton's Easter Basket was embossed in white on black paper and she hand cut it out. 

Here is a close up so you can see the incredible coloring on the bunny and daffodil and those fluffy tails!
