Newton's Nook Designs January Release


Hi everyone, welcome to the final, Day 4 of our January Release over at Newton's Nook Designs!  Today, I'm featuring another adorable set called, "Newton's Happy Mail".  This is a coordinating stamp and die set.  I really enjoyed copic coloring this image, I love the way Newton is poking out of the mailbox, handing you the mail!   I distress inked the image on top and bottom with Shabby Shutters and Broken China for grass and sky. I then mounted the Newton image on two layers of MFT stitched ovals.  The plaid paper is from Lawn Fawn, "Winter Plaid" and the grey cardstock is by MFT "Steel Grey".

Thanks for visiting and don't forget, you could win this stamp set!!

Newton's Nook Designs January Release


Hello everyone, welcome to Day 3 of our January Release over at #Newton'sNookDesigns.  Today I'm sharing this super adorable set, Pug Hugs.  I have to admit, I'd never colored a Pug before, but it was so easy, and I think he turned out so cute, I'll be using this set again soon!  It was a simple card to make, I just cut a few layers using pierced squares, inked my center in Ranger Distress Ink Chipped Sapphire.  I added a few stars with my white gel pen, then the sentiment and a heart.  I copic colored the pug and die cut him out using the coordinating die set! I popped him up with some foam tape for dimension.

Thanks for visiting..be sure to read below to find out how to win this!

Kat Scrappiness Double Stitched Hearts and Lawn Fawn Octopi


Hi everyone, I needed a quick sweet card for someone special, so I turned to this adorable set, Octopi My Heart from Lawn Fawn.  I couldn't wait to use the new Double Stitched Heart Dies by Kat Scrappiness and also the Embossed Large Rope Dies Rectangle to give it the extra nautical look!  The patterned paper is by Crate Paper called Heart Day!


Thanks for stopping, I hope you have a wonderful day!

Newton's Nook Designs January Release




Hello everyone, welcome to Day 2 of #Newton'sNookDesigns January Release.  Today I'm featuring a stamp set that really excites me.  It's called Love & Chocolate and has a coordinating die set.  So immediately I was drawn to my absolute favorite, chocolate covered strawberries!  Years ago, my family and I would attend the Strawberry Festival in Cedarburg, WI every June.  There's a confectionery on Main St. that would hand dip these HUGE strawberries and display them right in the front window.  Oh they were so good!!!  I'm a long way from Wisconsin and these are definitely a summer treat.  So for now, I'll enjoy coloring them!!

I did a lot of masking to create this scene.  I stamped the little strawberries right on my post it pad, then fussy cut a bunch of them to cover up the lower layers as I stamped my way to the top of the pile.  I then copic colored all the berries and used glossy accents on the chocolate..trust me, in person, they almost look real!  I die cut and colored the serving plate to look like Jadeite.  The red gingham paper by GinaK served as the perfect bottom layer around my scene!  My zig zag rectangle is by SugarPea Designs.  I also inked the background and splattered with a bit of white acrylic paint.  

I hope you've enjoyed my creation, thanks for stopping!  Read below for your chance to win!

Hello everyone.  I am so excited to show you these fun new products from Kat Scrappiness!  Introducing the newest Stitched Scallops, I've used the largest circle, but you can find all 4 basic shapes in store.  Also this cute new Stitched Layered Snowman.  Hey, it's still winter, so why not turn this into a fun Valentine shaker.  It gave me a good reason to use this gorgeous new sequin mix, check out Kat's shop for lots of new Valentine's sequin mixes!

I used a circle die cut, to turn the scallop into a frame, by cutting out the center, for my window. Otherwise this die cut would be sold for you to stamp your images on, etc.
