FMS338 by Jen Timko | Layering Leaves Dies by Concord and 9th, Posie Fill In Dies by Concord and 9th, Shaker Card, Sparkling Clear Sequins by Pretty Pink PoshHappy Freshly Made Sketches day!  I have been running around getting end of school year things done but I was happy to take a break and enjoy this fun sketch by the lovely Kim Singdahlsen.  The trio is going to help inspire some great cards this week!

For me, I knew I wanted to use this long leaf die (Layering Leaves) by Concord and 9th.  It is perfect, don’t you think?  I also just got the pack of new colors from Stampin’ Up (they are doing a whole color revamp and the new colors are fresh and fun!).  I chose Gray Granite for the card.  It is less steely and blue than Smokey Slate and it has moved right to the top of my favorite neutral colors.  I cut the leaves out and then created a shaker card.  I put the acetate behind the cut outs, then glued the die cuts back on top of the acetate piece.  Sparkling Clear Sequins are the perfect filler for the windows (I did debate a bright color but settled on the shimmer of these).  For my sentiment panel in the sketch, I used the die cut FRIEND from the Posie Fill In Die set cut from Thick Whisper White.  After cutting them out, I laid them back in the negative and added the foam tape behind the letters.  Then just attacked it to the card that way.  Helped keep the word all lined up.  Nice and clean and even ok for a masculine card.  Always need some of those in my stash!

I hope you are having a great week.  Back to crafting today.  Working to get ahead for some fun things coming up.  Until next time, make sure you pop over to visit the design team’s work.  Amazing as always!  Thanks for stopping in.  See you soon!

Newton’s Nook Designs May Release – Newton Loves Boxes and Newton’s Donut

Newton’s Nook Designs May Release – Newton Loves Boxes and Newton’s Donut published on 29 Comments on Newton’s Nook Designs May Release – Newton Loves Boxes and Newton’s Donut

Welcome to the last day of the May Release from Newton’s Nook Designs.  And for the last day we have not one but TWO adorable Newton sets for you.  YAY!!!  Yep, two of the greatest things in the world….boxes and donuts.

You Can Do It by Jen Timko | Newtons Loves Boxes Stamp Set and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Pawprints Stencil by Newton's Nook DesignsIf you have ever known a cat, you already know all about the phrase “if it fits, it sits”.  Well, the new Newton Loves Boxes is all about fitting and sitting!!  It is hilarious.  When Jennifer Jackson first showed the team the images, we all went just a little bit crazy!  Pretty sure that will be the reaction from all of you today too.  I created a background with the Pawprints Stencil and Distress Inks and then cut it out with the Frames and Flags Die.  I colored up out furry friend and his box and then cut him out with the coordinating die set for the stamp.  Don’t you think this sentiment is perfect for the image.  Seriously, this cracks me up.

Sprinkles by Jen Timko | Newton's Donut Stamp Set and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Tutti-frutti DSP by Stampin' Up, Copic ColoringFor my second card, I get to introduce Newton’s Donut.  Well, I actually colored MY donut.  That I want.  Right now.  But until I can figure out how to get it from him, it is Newtons’ donut.  *smile*  And because I am pretty sure sprinkles should always include pink and lime green, that is what I chose for the colors.

Sprinkles Closeup by Jen Timko | Newton's Donut Stamp Set and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Tutti-frutti DSP by Stampin' Up, Copic ColoringI made the donut into a chocolate version with vanilla frosting (a favorite of mine) and then tucked in this adorable  kitty colored with gray.  And there is something about the images with kitty “beans” (paw pads) that make me smile!  I used a base of lime patterned paper and some great (retired) pink washi tape to pull the colors from the sprinkles and then added on some sequins in the same colors.  On a technical note, I just have to tell you how well engineered this donut die is.  Look at the placement of the cut-outs…really fantastic and easy to use!  I love the time that is put into each of these sets.  It always makes me so proud when I can support Newton’s Nook Designs and their hard work!

This daily double is a real win and I know you will all be as in love with the sets as I am.  And now for a chance for free stamps!

Newton’s Nook Designs May Release – Papa Bear plus Freshly Made Sketches

Newton’s Nook Designs May Release – Papa Bear plus Freshly Made Sketches published on 28 Comments on Newton’s Nook Designs May Release – Papa Bear plus Freshly Made Sketches

Welcome to day 3 of the May Release from Newton’s Nook Designs.  Being Wednesday, it is also Freshly Made Sketches day so I have used that inspiration to show you the new Papa Bear stamp set.

Happy Father's Day by Jen Timko | Papa Bear Stamp Set and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Copic ColoringI just think this Winston set could not be more perfect for Father’s Day.  I love that you can add additional little bears as needed too.  I thought it would be fun to color on kraft paper using my Copic markers for this one.  I love how it turned out!  You see, I have a little blonde one and a bigger brown headed one so I colored the “kids” to match that idea.  The boys thought it was a fun idea and since this will be from them, yay!  I kept all the coloring tone on tone except for the heart and then added some red framing panels to pull that color out a bit.  the corrugated kraft adds a nice bit of texture along with the twine.  I tried hard to keep this dad-like with no frills or extra “stuff”.Our sketch today is perfect for showing off image sets (like this one) and I can’t wait to see what you all do with it this week.  Linda Callahan, she of great humor and even greater talent, is our sketch hostess….it is going to be a fun week!

Now you know the deal by now!  Time for a chance to win!

Newton’s Nook Designs May Release – Peony Blooms

Newton’s Nook Designs May Release – Peony Blooms published on 31 Comments on Newton’s Nook Designs May Release – Peony Blooms

Welcome to day 2 of the May Release from Newton’s Nook Designs.  Today we get to share another floral set and I’m thrilled to introduce Peony Blooms.  And do I ever love peonies!!

Hello by Jen Timko | Peony Blooms Stamp Set and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Framework Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Zig Clean Color MarkersI was totally inspired by my own peonies that are blooming right now.  These flowers are so special that I decided to keep the rest of the card pretty simple.  I stamped the image onto Bristol Smooth paper and colored using Zig Clean Color Markers.  A few shades of each color was all I needed.

Hello by Jen Timko | Peony Blooms Stamp Set and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Framework Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Zig Clean Color MarkersAfter coloring the flowers, I cut them out with the coordinating die.  Then I cut a frame from the Framework Dies (shown yesterday).  This scalloped frame is really wonderful, don’t you think?  I added a sentiment from the stamp set (LOVE this style of script) and then popped the frame and the flowers up on foam tape.  I added a few colored pearls that I thought were pretty with the image.  Mostly, I didn’t want to do anything to take away from the beautiful art of these flowers!!

Peonies May '18 | Jen TimkoAnd speaking of flowers, here are my gorgeous peonies from over the weekend.  Yep, the timing on this stamp set could not be better.  Now let’s go see what the rest of the team created!  Now on to everyone’s favorite part of release week.  A chance to win!!

Sending Hugs for Layton’s Legacy

Sending Hugs for Layton’s Legacy published on 2 Comments on Sending Hugs for Layton’s Legacy

I have an extra card to share with you today in support of Layton’s Legacy.  I’m sure many of you saw the amazing work being done to launch this card drive and fundraiser yesterday and I’m up on the Newton’s Nook Designs Blog today with my card made for the card drive.

This drive is the dream of Lea Lawson as a way to honor her sweet little boy Layton.  Please read the story about this tiny warrior and his amazing parents.  While he was in the NICU getting some of the world’s finest care, Lea and her husband found themselves in emotional anguish and exhausted.  At one point, someone gave them a Starbucks gift card so they could walk across the street from the hospital for a small break.  Lea speaks of that moment bringing tears to her since for a small moment it felt like someone was taking care of her and her husband.

This story is heartbreaking and yet heartwarming at the same time.  Because to honor Layton’s second birthday, she is choosing to bring good to other parents at the University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital.  She is doing a card drive and a fundraiser to buy more Starbucks cards so that other families in the same situation can feel like people are looking out for them and remembering them.  You can find out how to donate HERE and know that your donation may even make you the winner of some amazing prizes.  Yes, in all of this, she has sponsors that are sharing generously to help encourage generous giving.  This crafting community is truly a blessing!!One of the sponsors is Newton’s Nook Designs.  I created my card for today using the mood board for the Layton’s Legacy Hop and will be sending it to Lea as a way to deliver one of her gift cards.  I ask that you consider doing the same.  Think about how special a handmade card would be for any of these families and we have the power to bring a smile and love to someone who could really use it.Sending Hugs by Jen Timko | Cottage Garden Stamps and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Sending Hugs Stamp Set by Newton's Nook DesignsI love the color choices Lea gave us and the wonderful pictures provide so much inspiration.  Using the little animals, I immediately thought of Cottage Garden and stamped the owl in a pretty teal color.  Then I chose to add some yellow flowers for a pop of color.  The rest of the card is based on the chevron curtains and the gray room palette.

I hope you will join Lea and help her pay it forward with her event.  If you do make a card, make sure to link it up HERE.

Supplies (some affiliate links included):

Stamp: Cottage Garden (Newton’s Nook Designs), Sending Hugs (Newton’s Nook Designs); Ink:  Smokey Slate (SU), Lawn Fawn Candy Store Cubes – Peacock, Fresh Lemon (Altenew); Paper:  Thick Whisper White (SU), Ombré Chevrons Paper Pad (Lil’ Inker Designs), Smokey Slate (SU); Accessories:  Big Shot, Cottage Garden Dies (Newton’s Nook Designs), Misti, Dimensionals (SU), Basic Gray Baker’s Twine (SU), Stitched Shapes Dies (SU), Frames and Flags Dies (Newton’s Nook Designs)

Freshly Made Sketches #336

Freshly Made Sketches #336 published on 8 Comments on Freshly Made Sketches #336

FMS336 by Jen Timko | Monogram J Stamp by Concord and 9th, Monogram Dies by Concord and 9th, Distress Oxide InkThis is my first post of the day. I’ll be up a bit later with a card for the Newton’s Nook Designs blog and in support of Layton’s Legacy.

I do love my Wednesdays because it is Freshly Made Sketches day!  And today we have a fabulous sketch by Jen Mitchell.  Jen creates the most remarkable cards and also happens to be just an amazing person.  No surprise that she has created a fun sketch for the week!

As soon as I saw the sketch, I knew that I was going to use my brand new Monogram J stamp from Concord and 9th.  When faced with a whole alphabet of choices, I chose the J and the T.  Hmmm…..  I inked the J up with Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Ink and then filled in the flowers and leaves with Fossilized Amber, Broken China and Peeled Paint Oxide Inks.  I cut out the panel with the coordinating dies and then cut another panel of the same size using some Color Theory paper (SU).  I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set and used the banner die from the die set to cut it out.  I can’t wait to play with more color varieties and ink styles on this stamp!!

Well, since more is coming in just a bit, I’ll sign off for now.  Make sure you go visit the FMS blog and I hope you will join us this week.  See you soon!

Supplies (affiliate links included):

Stamp: Monogram J (Concord and 9th); Paper:  Thick Whisper White (SU), Whisper White Note Cards and Envelopes (SU), Color Theory Paper Stack (SU); Ink:  Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks (Worn Lipstick, Fossilized Amber, Peeled Paint, Broken China) ; Accessories: Misti, Big Shot, Monogram Dies (Concord and 9th)

Freshly Made Sketches #335

Freshly Made Sketches #335 published on 10 Comments on Freshly Made Sketches #335

FMS335 by Jen Timko | Julie's Roses Stamp Set by Winnie and Walter, Sketchy Thoughts Stamp Set by Winnie and Walter, Lattice Frame Cutting Plate by Taylored ExpressionsI am so happy to be the sketch hostess this week over at Freshly Made Sketches!  It always makes me a little nervous since we always want you to love our sketches and today I went with a bit of a classic look.  I love a big oval as a place to show off images and dies.  But I’m sure you will find ways to interpret this that I didn’t even consider.  That always makes me happy!

I used this pretty little flower from Julie’s Roses by Winnie and Walter.  I stamped in Versafine Onyx Black and then colored with  Zig Clean Color Markers.  After coloring the flower and the leaves, I fussy cut them out.  I thought this amazing Lattice Frame Cutting Die by Taylored Expressions was the perfect way to show off the flower.  So much detail but not enough to distract from the focal image.  Love it!  The sentiment is also from Winnie and Walter in a set called Sketchy Thoughts.  I used a base of Doll Pink by Simon Says Stamp to complete the look.

Now I get to share some fun news!  For the month of May, my friend Jill Hawkins will be joining us as a Guest Designer at Freshly Made Sketches.  If you don’t know Jill, you should!  She has the BEST sense of humor and oh by the way makes insanely great cards!  We are thrilled to have her joining our happy band for the month.

Well, I hope you like the sketch and that you will have a few minutes to play along.  We are full up in soccer season here at my house (JV High School for the oldest, Middle School for the youngest and club ball all around).  The good news….I get to see the boys doing what they love.  The bad news, less stamping.  It is a worthwhile tradeoff though.  Hoping to hit the stamp room later today to make some stuff to share soon.  Thanks for stopping in today!

Supplies (affiliate links included):

Stamp: Julie’s Roses (Winnie and Walter), Sketchy Thoughts (Winnie and Walter); Paper:  Neenah Solar White #110; Strathmore Bristol Smooth; Ink: Versafine Onyx Black, Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers; Accessories: Misti, Big Shot, Lattice Frame Cutting Die (Taylored Expressions)

Fancy Friday – Occasions Catty CASE

Fancy Friday – Occasions Catty CASE published on 3 Comments on Fancy Friday – Occasions Catty CASE

Welcome to this month’s Fancy Friday Blog Hop!  Our team is a group of stampers who love to make beautiful things.  Sometimes they are clean, sometimes they are layered but the one thing I can say for sure is that our projects will be fancy!  If you hopped over from my friend Holly Stene, welcome to the next stop.  For April, we have decided to CASE the Occasions Catalog.  Fun, right?

Beauty Blooms by Jen Timko | Friendship's Sweetest Thoughts Stamp by Stampin' Up, Copic Coloring, Tutti-Frutti DSP by Stampin' UpI think CASEing is always a wonderful compliment to the original designer, don’t you?!  But I also think there are some nice basic “rules” that go along with it.  First, whenever possible I feel it is really important to give credit to the original designer if you are posting your card or using it for a class.  I know how happy it makes me to know that I have inspired someone!  I also believe in honoring the work that was done by the original artist.  Even clean and “simple” cards can take a long time to design because finding balance is challenging.  What is simple to copy might have taken hours to get right.  Second, when I am CASEing, I look to change at least three things.  That way the card is true to the inspiration but still has original elements.

For today’s card, I pulled out Friendship’s Sweetest Thoughts and stamped onto Thick Whisper White with Momento Tuxedo Black ink.  I really love this adorable set and have not given it nearly enough love.  I colored the image using Copic Markers but you could use Stampin’ Blends too.  I thought this fun dotted paper from the Tutti-frutti DSP pack was perfect as a base and then added some retired Pop of Pink DSP behind the image.  The sentiment comes from the stamp set and I attached the banner with a retired clip.

Stampin’ Up Occasions Catalog p. 41

Here is my inspiration card from the catalog.  What are my three changes?  Different image and coloring medium, change of designer papers, change of accessory on the banner.  So while my card is clearly a CASE, it has a fresh and original feel to it.  I wish I knew which of the Concept Artists at Stampin’ Up actually designed this card but it is just fabulous!!

I am thrilled to be joining my Fancy Friends this month.  It has been a while and I missed hopping with them.  Next up is the incredible Jennifer Picard.  I know you will love what she is sharing today!!  Thank you for stopping in.  Hope to see you again soon!

Freshly Made Sketches #334

Freshly Made Sketches #334 published on 6 Comments on Freshly Made Sketches #334

FMS334 by Jen Timko | Hello Lovely Stamp Set by Concord and 9th, Beautiful Branches Stamp Set by Concord and 9thI’ve been catching up after all the posts last week.  Hope you have been having a nice few days!  I have been working…I consider it my quest to fly around the country looking for spring.  I have found a few glimpses.  I don’t mean to seem obsessed but seriously, it is time for spring to arrive and stay!  We have a great sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches from the lovely Amy O’Neill.  I love all the options!

I started with this gorgeous sentiment pairing from the Hello Lovely stamp set (Concord and 9th).  I stamped it in Versafine Onyx Black ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  I chose the little cherry blossom style flowers from the Beautiful Branches stamp set (Concord and 9th) and stamped them using Altenew’s Coral Berry Ink.  Then I heat embossed with clear powder.  I added the stamens of the flowers in black in and heat embossed with clear again.  The flowers are a bit bolder than what I had in mind to start (my tree had pretty pale pink flowers) but I was happy with the colors once I was done.  I found some retired card stock to match the ink for the sketch panel behind the images.

I’m also entering this in the Where Creativity Meets C9 challenge.  So glad you stopped in today.  The team at FMS has created such fun interpretations of the sketch.  Also, make sure you say a special thank you to Tracey McNeely for being an awesome guest!

Supplies (affiliate links included):

Stamps: Beautiful Branches (Concord and 9th), Hello Lovely (Concord and 9th); Paper: Thick Whisper White (SU), Watermelon Wonder (SU retired), Fog Gray (Simon Says Stamp); Ink: Versafine Onyx Black, Coral Berry (Altenew); Accessories: Big Shot, Heat Tool, Clear Embossing Powder (SU), Misti, Basic Pearls (SU), Dimensionals
