Newton's Nook Designs June Release - Day 3



Hello Newton fans and welcome to day 3 of our reveals at Newton's Nook Designs!  Today, you may notice we have a theme going?  How many of you are wine and or coffee drinkers?  Well, to be honest, I enjoy both.  Wine on occasion and coffee every single day! 

On my first card, I just wanted a simple little design.  I LOVE the font on the main image from this stamp set, "Coffee and Wine", which is the sentiment.  I thought it was fun to stamp all the little coffee and wine images like a wreath sort of.  It was so much fun to color these little cuties!  


Next I used the stamp/die combo "Wine a Little" to create this fun card.  I started by stenciling the background using a NND stencil, Bubbly  I stamped out and colored the images and mounted them on a distress inked banner.  A very simple card to make that I think turned out quite good.  

So I hope you've enjoyed my cards today, keep scrolling and comment for your chance to win one of these sets!

Newton's Nook Designs June Release - Day 2



Hi everyone, welcome to day 2 of the June reveals at Newton's Nook Designs.  Today we're featuring this super amazing stamp/die set, Loveable Llamas.  I just love coloring these llamas and the little accessories! 

I started with a tiny star background paper and inked over the top using the new Sunscape stencil.  I added a little xoxo banner and popped up my llama and added his pretty blanket and a pot of cacti!  Lastly I stamped the sentiment right over the sun.  I just love how it turned out!

Newton's Nook Designs June Release - Day 1





Hi everyone and welcome to day 1 of the June reveals at Newton's Nook Designs!  Today we're showing off a brand new stamp/die set called Playful Pandas along with 2 new gorgeous stencils "Serene Stripe" and "Sunscape"

I've got a few Panda stamp sets, but this one is my favorite already, just for the Panda poses alone.  It was fun being able to stamp these cuties out and create a scene using the Serene Stripe stencil that sort of looks like bamboo the way I inked it, don't you think?

I copic colored the little pieces of bamboo and the bowl of noodles.  Such a simple card to make, that turned out super cute!

Stay tuned for a lot more inspiration this week.  Make sure to comment on all the blogs to win!

Hero Arts On The Prairie


Hello and I'd like to wish everyone celebrating today, a Happy Father's Day.  I'm planning on traveling to see my parents/family next week, so I'll be able to celebrate with my own Dad then! 

So today, I've got a card to show you.  I purchased this new die, "On The Prairie" by Hero Arts.  I was really excited to play around with this and wow, do I ever love it!  I started by cutting the skull out and then with the negative, I inked my card base so that when I popped the skull up, the eye and nose holes would be darkened.  I like the look!  I then cut out the flowers in 3 colors along with the foliage and arranged them around the popped up skull.  Lastly I added a few pearls from Queen and Co. to add a little extra pizazz!

Thanks for stopping, enjoy the rest of your weekend!!

The sentiment is from an old CTMH set, September Word Puzzle D1310R

Stamping Bella Tiny Townie Garden Girl Lily of the Valley




Hello, happy Saturday!  Today I've had the whole house to myself, so it's been very quiet and I was able to get some coloring time in.

I recently purchased this super sweet stamp by Stamping Bella, linked below.  Image was stamped out on Tim Holtz Sizzix Stitched Rectangle Thinlits Die 661189.

I've been practicing with some new markers lately, they are not quite as easy to blend with as my Copics..but they are very decent markers for the budget minded looking for alcohol inks.  My cousin Linda purchased a set of these Touchnew markers from Amazon for me as a gift and I must say I'm quite pleased with them.  I'll link them below.  

Enjoy your weekend and thanks for stopping!

Unity 12/17 KOTM card - Monarch with flowers


Hi everyone..it's Saturday and a super hot day here in South Carolina, so i'm indoors hiding from the heat!  

So today I'm showing off an image from one of my Unity KOTM (Kit Of The Month) from Dec 2017.  I've been a member now for going on 2 years I think.  I've got a LOT of wonderful images and so I'm challenging myself to use them more often!

I have to say, I'm pretty over the top about images like this.  The Monarch butterfly wing with the floral collection on the other side.  There's just something so graceful about this image, it really speaks to me!

I colored this with my Arteza watercolor markers on the Bristol Smooth watercolor cardstock.  I used the sentiment that also came in this kit and finished off with a few sequins.  Thanks for stopping by!!
