A Little Birdie Told Me...Card by Farhana Sarker

A Little Birdie Told Me Card by Farhana Sarker | Birdhouse Line Stencil, Birdhouse Greetings Stamp Set, Slimline Frames& Portholes Die Set and Springtime Paper Pad by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

...It's Your Birthday!

Today we're sharing an adorable bird themed Birthday card by Farhana.

This card uses our Birdhouse Line Stencil to create a  bird themed birthday wish! This stencil has three rows of images that you ink up in different colors. You can easily align the rows on the stencil using the etching. For her card Farhana colored the row of birdhouse tops using bright pastel inks. She inked the row with the roofs and birdhouse poles using brown and then added the third row, which includes the birds and the holes in the fronts, in black. What a fun combo!

She next added the messages from our Birdhouse Greetings Stamp Set. She stamped them on each side of the row using black ink. She cut the whole panel out using our Slimline Frames & Portholes Die Set to give it a petite scalloped edge. 

Last, she used piece of floral paper from our Springtime Paper Pad, also cutting it with the Slimline Frames & Portholes Die Set to give it the same scalloped edge and layered it behind the birdhouse panel.

Plant-astic Kitty Card by Zsofia Molnar

Plant-astic Kitty Card by Zsofia Molnar | Newton's Hanging Basket Stamp Set, Succulent Garden Stamp Set and Slimline Die Sets by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

Plant-astic Kitties!

Today Zsofia a fun plant themed card featuring our Newton's Hanging Basket Stamp Set

For this card she started by stamping the image of the kitty in the basket from our Newton's Hanging Basket Stamp Set. She stamped the image twice and colored the leaves and baskets the same but gave the kitties different colors. So cute! She cut the images out using the coordinating Newton's Hanging Basket Die Set

For her card she created a slimline card layout. She used the scallop edged die from our Slimline Frames & Portholes Die Set for the bright teal panel. Then she used the die with three windows from our Slimline Frames & Windows Die Set to cut a yellow-green frame and layered that over the top. She placed a kitty on each side, leaving the center for the sentiment. For the sentiment she chose to use the "you're Plant-astic" from our  Succulent Garden Stamp Set. What a great combination! 

Here are close-ups of both sides of the card so you can see the lovely coloring on those kitties:

Here are some tips from Ellen on how to create this adorable card:
Bright Birthday Mouse Card by Ellen Haxelmans | Birthday Mice Stamp Set, Newton's Candy Cane Stamp Set, Bright Sentiments Hot Foil Plates, Banner Duo Die Set and Scene building Die Sets by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

  • (Left photo above): First I die cut the largest frame of the Frames & Flags Die Set and used the Clouds Stencil to create a pretty background. I start inking the panel at the bottom (tip: start blending of the edge of the stencil for the best results and a smoother blend). Once you have inked the first cloud, move the stencil up and start inking again and keep repeating this until you have filled the panel.

  • (center photo above): Here you can see I die cut the largest frame again and then cut it again using the Land Borders Die Set. Next I inked it so it looks like sand. Later I die cut 3 clouds with the Sky Scene Builder Die Set. I also foiled the sentiment with the new Bright Sentiments Hot Foil Plates!
    Turn on your hot foil machine and let it warm up. Lay your hot foil plate on the machine and trim your foil a little bigger than your hot foil plate. When the green button of the machine turns on, place the foil pretty side down on top of the plate. Than you place your cardstock on top. As the last step you place the shim and acrylic plate on top of the cardstock. After pressing the timer button, the light slowly will stop blinking, now you can roll the sandwich through a die cutting machine.

  •  (right photo above): Here I colored the images. I used the Birthday Mice Stamp Set and Birthday Mice Die Set & Newton's Candy Cane Stamp Set for the candies.

    COPIC COLOR SWATCH:
    Violet: RV34, RV32, RV00
    Purple: V04, V01, V00
    Brown: E25, E23, E21

So cool! We love the idea of customizing this mug for any occasion by adding images to the front! She colored the image in fun soft colors and cut it out using the coordinating Newton's Mug Die Set

For her card base she used our Frames & Flags Die Set to cut out a piece of floral paper from our Spring Blooms Paper Pad and also a white scalloped frame. She layered these together to make a fun background for the mug. She also added that fun decorative square, cut from vellum, using our  Frames Squared Die Set. Love all the layers!

For the card background she ink blended the sky using distress inks in several colors and then added white and colored paint splatters for a fun bit of texture. The sentiment from the Smitten Kitten Stamp Set was stamped into the sky and is purr-fect for wishing someone a happy day! The finishing element to scene is an edge of grass that was cut out using our Land Borders Die Set from some green flocked paper for another bit of texture! So amazing!
