Today we are sharing a beautiful cad by Ellen, inspired by postage stamps!

She started by cutting out three of the small postage stamp shaped rectangles using our Framework Die Set. She masked off the outer edges and inked the inside areas using various distress inks and added a different pattern to each one using our Tree Rings StencilTrailing Leaves Stencil and Petite Paw Prints Stencil

She added a postage watermark onto each stamp using our Hare Mail Stamp Set (retiring). Then, she cut out butterflies to match the colors of ink using the butterfly shape from our Slimline Frames & Portholes Die Set. She adhered these to each rectangle and added a gemstone the center of each one.

Hippity Hoppity Cards by Jennifer Jackson

Hippity Hoppity Cards by Jennifer Jackson | Hop Into Spring Stamp Set, Bunny Tails Stencil Set, and Frames & Flags Die Set by Newton's Nook Designs

Hippity Hoppity! 

Hello! Jen here today and I've been having fun with some easter crafting! Today I'm sharing two bunny cards that both feature our Bunny Tails Stencil Set and Hop Into Spring Stamp Set!

For the first card, pictured above, I used our Bunny Tails Stencil Set to make a fun background of teal bunnies. This stencil is a two piece set and one piece has the bunny silhouettes and the second piece has the bunny tails.  The stencil also has etching on each piece so you can easily line up the bunnies and tails. I used two shades of teal to create the fun background. Then I layered it over a teal rectangle with a scalloped edge that was cut out using our Frames & Flags Die Set

For the main image, I stamped and colored the bunny in a spring watering can from our Hop Into Spring Stamp Set. I chose bright spring colors of copic markers, matching the color of the watering can to the stenciled background. The image was cut out using the coordinating Hop Into Spring Die Set before layering it onto the card. I also added the sentiment "Hippity Hoppity" from our Spring Roundabout Stamp Set. This was stamped onto a yellow banner that was cut out using the same Frames & Flags Die Set

For the second card I used almost exactly the same supplies but created a slightly different card layout. For the background I made another panel of bunnies using our Bunny Tails Stencil Set but this time I used a yellow cardstock base and mustard ink for the bunny silhouettes. Then I used flocking to addd fuzzy white tails to the bunnies. I cut this panel out using the Frames & Flags Die Set to give it the fun scalloped edge.

Again, I colored the same image of the bunny in the watering can from the Hop Into Spring Stamp Set but this time I made the watering can yellow to match the background pattern. 

I used the same "Hippity Hoppity" sentiment from the Spring Roundabout Stamp Set, but this time I stamped it onto a piece of cream colored cardstock and then cut a scalloped edge on one side using our Sky Borders Die Set. A small stripe of pink ribbon finishes the card.

I hope you enjoyed these fun spring cards! I also hope that I have inspired you to make multiple cards using similar supplies but changing them up just a little! This is such a fun way to try new things and experiment!

Sweet Easter Blessings

Today we are sharing a beautiful card by Tatiana that is perfect for sending greetings for Easter. 

To create this lovely card she started by stamping images from our Newton's Easter Basket Stamp Set. She chose to feature the image of the kitty in the easter basket wearing bunny ears and also stamped several extra eggs and chicks to add to her scene. She colored all the images in gorgeous soft colors and added accents with a white gel pen. She cut the images out using the coordinating Newton's Easter Basket Die Set

Next, she created a soft ink blended background and added some white splatters to it using white gouache. She cut the panel out using our A7 Frames & Banners Die Set to separate it into three stitched rectangles. She then adhered those to a white cardstock base and layered the images on top. So pretty! 

For the message she used the sentiment from our Easter Lily Stamp Set. She split it in two sections, stamping the word "Easter" directly onto the panel and embossing the word "blessings" in white onto a small black rectangle.

Let the Good Times Roll Card by Jennifer Jackson

Let the good times Roll Card by Jennifer Jackson | Naughty Newton Stamp Set, Cycling Friends Stamp Set, Heartfelt Meows Stamp Set, Serene Stripes Stencil and various Shape Dies by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

Let the Good Times Roll! 

Hello! Jen here today and I'm sharing a fun cat themed birthday card that is sure to make the recipient smile! 

To create this card I started by stamping the kitty unrolling the toilet paper from our Naughty Newton Stamp Set. Isn't this image so funny? I added stripes to the kitty and some white gel pen accents too. Then I cut the image out using the coordinating Naughty Newton Die Set

I was looking through my stamps and decided that it would be fun to make this image into a birthday card by pairing it with the cat themed birthday sentiment from our Heartfelt Meows Stamp Set and the message "let the good times roll" from our Cycling Friends Stamp Set. Doesn't that go perfectly with the unrolled toilet paper!? I cut out the sentiments using the Banner Trio Die Set for the blue banner and the circle from the Frames Squared Die Set for the stitched circle shape.

I then made a little setting for the cat using our Serene Stripes Stencil to make a wallpaper and a piece of gray for a floor.  I cut both pieces out into a smaller rounded square using our Frames Squared Die Set. The large scalloped rectangle is that frames the whole layout is from our Frames & Flags Die Set
