Merry Kiss-mas card by Samantha Mann

Merry Kiss-mas Card
Today, Samantha has a card using two of our sweet Christmas stamp sets from last year! She used the adorable Holiday Smooches for the heat embossed sentiment and the cute Newton's Christmas Cuddles stamp set for the image!

The adorable duo of cats were watercolored and then popped up against that winter-y watercolor-y sky! I love the sequins for stars!

Thank you Samantha for this fun, holiday card!

Hey There Pumpkin Card by Danielle Pandeline

Hey There Pumpkin
Today, Danielle created this adorable scene by mixing and matching various Newton's Nook Designs stamp sets! That cute duo of pumpkins and the sweet to go coffee cup are from the new Fall-ing for You stamp set! I love how she colored them and added the subtle shading!
The cute sentiment is from the new Newton's Boo-tiful Night and I love it on that banner!

Those trees really add to the set, (I love the punch of green) and they're from the sweet, watercolor-y Whispering Pines stamp set!

Thank you Danielle for this perfectly fall card!! We love it!

A Fetching Birthday Card by Crafty Math Chick | Fetching Friendship dog stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Fun Birthday Labrador!

Today Crafty Math-Chick created this fun doggie birthday card! She used the fun image of the labrador from the Fetching Friendship stamp set and colored him with a fun bright yellow ball! The "Fetch-ing you a Happy Birthday" is also from our Fetching Friendship stamp set. Doesn't this make a fun card for dog lover? The fun paw-print border gives it just the right finishing touch and I love the bright yellow and black color combo!

Thank you, Crafty Math-Chick, for the fun inspiration today! To see moe details and other projects, you can visit her blog, Canines & Card Designs.

STAMPtember Exclusive with Simon Says Stamp & Newton's Nook Designs!

STAMPtember exclusive: Bushels of Love Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Today we are featured on the Simon Says Stamp site with an EXCLUSIVE stamp set designed by us for their STAMPtember celebration! How cool is that? I know many of you LOVE shopping over at Simon Says Stamp so make sure you head over there today and check out our exclusive Bushels of Love Stamp set and coordinating die set. These items are  only available on their site while supplies last!

Here's an image of the set I designed for their STAMPtember celebration!  I thought it would be fun to design a Fall set with Winston (our bear) and his friends in Fall scenes:

STAMPtember exclusive: Bushels of Love Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook
You can find this set & a coordinating die  ONLY at Simon Says Stamp!

And, of course, I had to play with the set to show you what you can create with it! I created two fun Fall cards with watercolors:

Fall cards by Jennifer Jackson | STAMPtember exclusive: Bushels of Love Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

First I created a couple of watercolor backgrounds using Tim Holtz Distress inks and watercolor papers. I used these as the background for both my cards. For the first card I stamped the image of the raccoon in the basket with Archival Ink on watercolor paper. Then I used Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers to color him. He is so fun to color! I cut him out, along with the extra little pumpkin with the coordinating die. Then I added him onto the watercolor background with dimensional adhesive squares.

Fall card by Jennifer Jackson | STAMPtember exclusive: Bushels of Love Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I stamped the "Sending you bushels of LOVE" sentiment onto the watercolored panel and then mounted the whole thing onto a yellow cardstock base.  To finish it off I used some thin orange twine.

Fall card by Jennifer Jackson | STAMPtember exclusive: Bushels of Love Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

For the second card I did the same process using the image of the fox and coloring it with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. I also colored the little bird and added both these onto the second watercolored panel I had created.

For this card I used the "There is always something to be thankful for" sentiment! I love this sentiment - it would work great for Fall thank you cards!

Coffee Lovers Fall Blog Hop! Fall-ing for You stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

For my card today I used our BRAND NEW Fall-ing for You stamp set! We just released this set a this month and we are having SO MUCH FUN with it! I stamped a bunch of the images of the little pumpkins, coffee and leaves onto a background panel. I used waterproof ink so I could watercolor the images using Zig Clean Color Water Brush Markers. I love how bright the colors are on these. Then I inked the edges of the panel a little with some distress ink to give it a softer feel. I stamped the big sentiment from this set onto another panel and added some blue distress into to that. Then I finished off the card with some striped washi tape and a bit of twine. So pretty!!

    Football Season Card by Samantha Mann

    Football Season Card by Samantha Mann | Touchdown Tails Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

    It's Football Season!

    Do you love football? Here at NND headquarters in WI, we are big Green Bay Packer Fans. I think it's a requirement if you live in WI! So we are quite excited that it's football season again! 

    Today we're sharing this fun football themed card by Samantha! She used our Touchdown Tails stamp set, stamping the cheerleader bunny and referee dog. She did some awesome coloring on those two and then fussy cut them out to add to her card. I love the fun lightly inked background and black and white stripes up the side. The "You're #1in my playbook" sentiment is also from the Touchdown Tails stamp set. This card would be great to send any sporting fan to tell them how awesome they are!

    Autumn Wishes Card by Yukari Yoshioka | Hedgehog Hollow and Beautiful Leaves stamp sets by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

    Hedgehogs and Leaves for Autumn! 

    Today we're sharing this adorable Fall card by Yukari. She used two of our newer Fall stamp sets: Hedgehog Hollow and Beautiful Leaves. I love how she used the leaves from the Beautiful Leaves stamp set to create a lovely Fall background, coloring them right on the kraft colored paper! Then did the same thing with that cute hedgehog hugging his acorn from the Hedgehog Hollow stamp set! The "Autumn Wishes" sentiment that she used is from the Beautiful Leaves stamp set. I love the way this all goes together so beautifully! 

    Thanks so much to Yukari for the the Autumn inspiration today! You can head over to her blog, Handmade by Yuki and see more details about her project - and make sure to say hello!

    Today we're sharing this adorable foxy shaker card by Naki!

The fun mint and grey scarf she gave the fox is perfect for Fall! I love how she created a fun shaker window filled with pretty Fall colored sequinstoo! She added the "Hello Foxy" sentiment, also from the Fox Hollow stamp set on a fun tag. Do you spy that cute little acorn too? That's from our Hedgehog Hollow stamp set! What a fun Fall card!

    Sweet Tea and Sunshine Card by September Guest Designer Ellen Hax

     Hello everyone!! Ellen here with a little gift idea some tea and soap. Today I like to talk about how I start creating.

    Sweet Tea and Sunshine Card by September Guest Designer Ellen Hax | Freshly Squeezed Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

    When I start making a project, I always start with the colors I already have. For example in this case it's yellow from the jar and the lemon soap. Then I start looking for the color combinations, for this project I found a pretty color combination from the "The Design Inspirationalist".

    After that I choose a stamp set that goes well with the items I got; what's better than Freshly Squeezed for this project.

    Sweet Tea and Sunshine Card by September Guest Designer Ellen Hax | Freshly Squeezed Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook
    Thank you so much for stopping by and see you next week!

    Sponsoring Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #376

    Have you heard of the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge? For each challenge they post a YUMMY cupcake photo and color combo for inspiration! Everybody likes cupcakes, right?

    The current challenge going up today features fun fall cupcakes:

    We're sponsoring this challenge so If you head over to their blog and play along you have a chance to win a $25 store credit to our store at! How awesome is that?

    Of course I had to play along -- here's the card I created. I was inspired by colors to do a Fall themed card and immediately thought of our  Pick-a-Pumpkin stamp set. I stamped the thanks pumpkin with orange ink (closest I had t the papaya) and then the argyle pumpkin in eggplant. I cut them both out using the coordinating Pick-a-Pumpkin Die Set.  I had a hard time working the forest into my card but used it on the pumpkin stems and a lighter version of it for inking the circle behind the pumpkins!

    Pumpkin Thanks card by Jennifer Jackson for Cupcake Inspirations Challenge 376 | Pick-a-Pumpkin Stamp set and dies by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

    For the card I used a strip of paper that has a "gauze" layer over it - I thought this looked good for  the Fall/Halloween theme. Then I added a strip of orange pattern paper, some enamel dots and a twine bow.

    Make sure you pop over to the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge blog to see more fun today. We have several other NND Design Team members featured as "Guest Sweeties" for this challenge and a bunch of the regular "Sweeties" (that's what they call their Design Team -- cute, right?) are featuring Newton's Nook Designs stamps too!
