She also added a texture of tiny snowflakes using our Petite Snow Stencil with texture paste. She left a spot near the top to stamp the message "joyful tidings" from the Heartfelt Holidays Stamp Set.

Home for Christmas! 

Today we are sharing a clean and simple card by Farhana that reminds us of heading home for the holidays!

Merry Little Cocktails Card by Ellen Haxelmans

Merry Little Cocktails Card by Ellen Haxelmans | Christmas Cocktails Stamp Set, Argyle Stencil Set, Plaid Stencil Set and Frames Squared Die Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

Merry Little Cocktails

Today we are getting ready to raise a glass and say cheers with this adorable holiday card by Ellen

For this festive card she featured two of the fun holiday drinks from our Christmas Cocktails Stamp Set. She colored the drinks in fun bright colors and used the coordinating Christmas Cocktails Die Set to cut the images out. 

For her card base she created a beautiful patterned background by layering colors using our Argyle Stencil Set and Plaid Stencil Set together. Since both of these stencils include two pieces, there are tons of options for creating patterns. She used both pieces from the Plaid Stencil Set, using blue ink on one layer and green on the other. Then she used just the stitched diamond layer from the  Argyle Stencil Set to add a gorgeous red glittery stitched pattern! So pretty!

She cut this panel into a square and layered it onto a square card base. Then she cut more decorative squares using our Frames Squared Die Set with kraft colored and vellum paper. 

The finishing touch is the sentiment, "Have yourself a Merry little Cocktail" from theChristmas Cocktails Stamp Set. She added this message,  embossed in white onto a banner that was cut out using our Frames & Flags Die Set

2022 Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop | Coffee and Cat Card by Jennifer Jackson | Newton's Mug Stamp Set, Love Café Stamp Set, Coffee House Stories Paper Pad and various Die Sets by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade
To start out, I chose a few printed papers from our Coffee House Stories Paper Pad that features cat and coffee themes (two of our favorites). I cut out a postage edged panel using our Framework Die Set from dark brown cardstock and then added the three strips of the patterned paper inside the frame. 

Next, I stamped the image of the big mug with the kitty peeking out of it from our Newton's Mug Stamp Set. This set has a bunch of different phrases that will fit on the coffee mug front but this time I left the front blank and colored it watercolored the mug purple and the kitty a brownish gray. I stamped the duo of heart mugs from our Love Café Stamp Set and colored them in coordinating colors. When coloring the images I tried to match the colors to the papers I had chosen! Then I cut out the images using the coordinating Newton's Mug Die Set and Love Café Die Set

I arranged the mugs over my pattern filled card base, then decided I needed a circle of vellum to help soften the busy prints so I layered a circle cut out using our Circle Frames Die Set between the printed papers and the stamped images. The finishing touch is the sentiment from the Love Café Stamp Set. I stamped the sentiment onto kraft colored paper and then cut it out into a banner using the banner from the Bookmark Die Set

Piles of Pumpkins Card by Samantha Mann

Piles of Pumpkins Card by Samantha Mann | Jack-o'-lantern Stencil Set, Banner Trio Die Set, Autumn Leaves Die Set and Newton's Pumpkin Patch Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

Pretty Pink Pumpkins!

Today Samantha is sharing a pumpkin card that is pretty in pinks! What an unexpected and gorgeous color for fall!

For this beautiful card she started by using our Jack-o'-lantern Stencil Set to create rows of pretty pumpkins. This stencil has three pieces: pumpkin bases, pumpkin stems, and scary faces. If you use all three layers, it makes a great jack-o'-lantern, but by leaving off the scary faces, you have the option to create lovely pumpkins too! 

That's what Samantha did on her card today! She applied transfer gel to the layer of the stencil that includes the bases of the pumpkins and then applied foils and flocks in shades of pink with a heat laminator.  She then used a sparkly gold embossing paste on the layer of the stencil with the stems! Soooooo pretty!  Here's a close-up so you can see all the shimmer and flock:

Then she added the sentiment from the Newton's Pumpkin Patch Stamp Set, stamping it onto a banner that was cut out of kraft paper using our Banner Trio Die Set. Pretty pink leaves were added to the side, cut out using our Autumn Leaves Die Set. A few sparkly gold sequins add a shimmery finishing touch!

Magic of Christmas Card by Jennifer Jackson

Magic of Christmas Card by Jennifer Jackson | Holiday Home Stamp Set, Snowfall Roundabout Stamp Set, Circle Frames De Set and Framework Die Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

Holiday Magic!

Hello! Jen here again today and I'm sharing a card that is filled with holiday magic! There is something magical about walking through the snow, especially if you tie it in with bringing home the holiday tree, and that is what this card is all about. 

To create this card I started by stamping the image of the two kids hauling a Christmas tree behind them on a sled from our Holiday Home Stamp Set. I colored the image using bright watercolor markers and then cut it out using the coordinating Holiday Home Die Set.

Next, I stamped and embossed the big circle of snowflakes from our Snowfall Roundabout Stamp Set using white embossing powder. Then I inked over it with shades of blue distress inks and cut it out using our Circle Frames Die Set to create that awesome background circle. 

For the card layout, I used our  Framework Die Set to create the big rectangle with the postage edge and then layered the snowy circle and children with the tree over the top. I left room along the bottom for the large sentiment, stamped from our Holiday Home Stamp Set
