Hello Newton's Nook Designs fans and welcome to day 2 of the July reveals and NND's 6th birthday celebration!

For my first card, I've used the brand new set, Newton's Perfect Wave!  I adore this set and love all the images included!  My scalloped frame is a die from the Frameworks Die set and the clouds and sand hill were stenciled in using the new Clouds Edge and Hills and Grass Edge stencils. I can't stress enough how much I LOVE these new scene creating stencils, they are amazing!


For my second card I'm featuring the new Scuba Newton stamp/die set and added the new stencil Waves and Splashes.  The scalloped die is from the Frames and Flags die set. All the little fish and plants come in the Scuba Newton Set! The little sentiment is stamped on the littlest circle die from Frames Squared!

Newton's Nook Designs July Release 6 Year Celebration - Day 1



Hello everyone and welcome to day 1 of the July reveals at Newton's Nook Designs.  And guess what? This is a super special month because we are celebrating NND's 6 year birthday celebration! We've got a really big week in store for you with lots of amazing prizes.  Make sure to join us each day for inspiration and your chance to WIN!

So for my first card I've used the brand new Corgi Beach stamp/die set to create this super fun summer card!  For my base I used the Frames Squared die set. On the circle I've used these brand new edge stencils, Hills and Grass and Clouds. 

These edge stencils, including Waves&Splashes are SO amazing and wonderful for creating scenes. (you can find all pictured below). I love the way the clouds and grass came out on my Corgi card!  I added some little sea shells at the bottom of the scene to complete this card!

 

For my second card today, I wanted to show off the brand new Pineapple Stencil.  It's a 2 piece stencil, one does the body of the fruit and the other does the green top.  I just absolutely LOVE all the new stencils, including the Hibiscus stencil which I'll be featuring later this week. 

I've paired the this new stencil with the Pina Koala stamp/die set and the little cocktail came from the Cocktail Mixer stamp/die set.

Newton's Naptime


Hi all and happy Friday!  Today I'm up on the blog over at Newton's Nook Designs. 

I've been so into naps lately and this sweet little Newton image, Newton's Naptime really appealed to me, so I had to color him up with my Copics!  I die cut the image using the coordinating die set and also cut out the speech bubble and heat embossed the sweet little sentiment on it!

I wanted to use one of the newer stencils for my background and I thought the Meow Stencil looked perfect behind napping Newton, maybe he's dreaming of a fish dinner?

Thanks so much for joining me here today and have a wonderful weekend!

Mirella, you are the winner of my Studio Katia $25 gift card, please send an email to rutabagapiedesigns @gmail dot com for instructions on claiming your prize.  Congratulations!


These are fabulous! The yellow balloons look great on the first card, and the shading on the balloons on the second one is perfection! Plus, the pop of vibrant colours against the black - superb! I am following your blog now :-)

We are celebrating with a Blog Hop and a New Release. This Release includes 5 new Clear Stamp Sets and 1 set of Coordinating Dies, 1 new Stand Alone Creative Die, 2 new Stencils and lots of new Embellishments!


I'm so excited to be joining Studio Katia and their Design Team for this special occasion!  

I've created two cards using brand new products that are being released today in the Studio Katia store. I've linked them all below for your shopping convenience! 

For my first card, I used the Party Balloons Stencil to create a grouping of yellow balloons and then popped Kobi from Kobi Makes A Wish Stamp/Die set up in the forefront! I inked a little floor so Kobi had something to stand on and then stamped that gorgeous sentiment from It's Your Birthday over the balloons!

My second card I started with that b/w polka dot base and layered diecut balloons from the Shaker Balloon Die. I created the ink shadowing with Ranger Distress Inks, using 2 tones on each balloon to give it the rounded look, leaving the center lighter. I added little bows, also cut from the Shaker Balloon Die.

I finished off both cards with the Pastel Rainbow Confetti and Silver Fever Fusion for a little sparkle!

Newton's Nook Designs June Release - Day 4


Hi all, well it's day 4, the final day of our June reveals at Newton's Nook Designs! You know what that means?  All these fun new products will be available in store tomorrow!

So my last project of the week was created using the new Woodland Picnic stamp/die combo. These little critters are some of my favorites in the Newton line!

I decided to create a different sized card. After I colored all the images, I just couldn't split them up.  I wanted a big picnic under the sun! My card base started out as 8.5x7 and then scored at the 3.5" mark lengthwise.  So your finished card is 8.5x3.5. 

I used the hill die from Land Borders and I cut it twice (joining) on an 8.5" piece of light yellow cardstock.  I inked a few shades of green working from the bottom up. As for my background, I used the Sunscape stencil and added some clouds from Newton Hangs out and dragonfly and butterfly from Newton's Picnic, both previewed yesterday.  Last I stamped the sentiment in the upper corner.  

Thanks so much for joining me today, make sure to visit and comment at all the DT blogs for your chance to WIN!

Would you like to win the “Woodland Picnic” Stamp Set? This stamp set will be given away to ONE lucky winner!

Newton's Nook Designs June Release - Day 3


Good morning Newton fans, today is day 3 of the June release at Newton's Nook Designs and we're here with 2 new stamp/die sets to show you today. For my first card I created this scene using Newton's Picnic. This is now one of my top favorite NND images, I just love that little kitty butt poking out of the picnic basket!  

So I Copic colored my image, and created my scene on this circular die cut.  I also cut out some grass using Land Borders Die Set and glued it onto my circle.  I added some light blue ink blending behind my image and foam popped my main image over it.  I stamped a few ants on the grass and added a dragonfly and butterfly and a few clouds from Newton Hangs Out.  


So moving on to my second card, I've used the new Newton Hangs Out stamp/die set to create this fun little scene! I started with some happy diagonal striped paper and layered on the rounded rectangle from the Frames and Flags Die Set.  I colored up my main Newton image and added a little yellow/green ink blending behind it.  I also added a dragonfly from the Newton's Picnic set and stamped the sentiment onto the smallest circle from the Frames Squared Die Set



Thanks so much for stopping by, make sure to comment at the DT's blogs for your chance to WIN!
