Newton’s Nook Designs November Release – Cup of Cocoa and Frozen Fellowship

Newton’s Nook Designs November Release – Cup of Cocoa and Frozen Fellowship published on 46 Comments on Newton’s Nook Designs November Release – Cup of Cocoa and Frozen Fellowship

Welcome to day 1 of the November Release from Newton’s Nook Designs.  We have such fun products to show you this week and we are starting today with lots to share.  Two stamp sets and two new stand alone die sets….wow!

Everything Nice by Jen Timko | Cup of Cocoa Stamp Set and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Snowfall Stencil by Newton's Nook Designs, Copic Coloring, Be Merry DSP by Stampin' UpOur first set I’m showing you is called Cup of Cocoa! ** Warning:  Triggers uncontrollable tendencies to run to the kitchen and make some cocoa immediately!! ** I used the Color Theory paper from Stampin’ Up and the Snowfall Stencil from Newton’ Nook as an embossing folder.  This is a great way to stretch your stencils and add fun details to a background.  I colored this adorable cup from the set to match the ombré paper.  Fun, right?!  The new Frames & Flags Dies create quick banners that layer wonderfully and all I had to do was add a sentiment from the stamp set.

Snow-one else by Jen Timko | Frozen Fellowship Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs, Frames & Flags Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Zig Clean Color PensFor my second card, I get to show you Frozen Fellowship.  This is perfect for holiday cards but it continues to work into the rest of winter too!  The minute I saw this set, I knew exactly what I wanted to do.  I loved the idea of choosing one of the snowmen to stand out as unique and the used this fabulous sentiment.  Using my Zig Clean Color Markers, I colored all the snowmen in shade of gray.  Then chose this funny little guy at the bottom for full color (I confess that choosing which snowman to have color was the hard part, haha).  I used the new Frames & Flags Dies again here and you can see how awesome they are to create layers.

Yes, indeed, this is another amazing day 1.  And I did tell you there are two new stand alone dies.  The other one (which I will use later this week) is called the Fancy Edges Tag Die set and you are going to love it!  You can see all the features in the graphic below.  Now on to everyone’s favorite part of release week.  A chance to win!!

Fancy Friday

Fancy Friday published on 8 Comments on Fancy Friday

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 the amazing Marisa Gunn, welcome to the next stop.  For November, we are all working with a sketch.  And you know I cannot resist a sketch!!

Fancy Friday - Cup of Cheer by Jen Timko | Merry Cafe Stamp Set by Stampin' Up, Coffee Cups Framelits by Stampin' Up, Coffee Break DSP by Stampin' Up, WatercolorI thought the sketch was a perfect one to show off this fun coffee cup set from Stampin’ Up.  It is called Merry Café and it can be found in the Holiday Catalog.  It is a sister set to the Coffee Café set from the main catalog and the dies from that set are used for both.  Fabulous!  I chose to do a quick watercolor on the cup using Soft Sky ink after stamping the cup, sentiments and snowflakes in Versafine Ink.  You want to make sure you use a water safe ink when you stamp.  After cutting them with the framelits and the Big Shot, I just popped them up on Dimensionals for the image panel.  To keep with the sketch, I added a strip of Soft Sky card stock along the side for a simple extra border that is a great way to use scraps.  The patterned paper for the crossing panel is from the Coffee Break DSP pack and I love those subtle chevrons.  I added some white cotton ribbon (SU ret) across the panel and tied it with some White Baker’s Twine.  Finally, I pulled some of the sequins from the October Paper Pumpkin kit as a finishing touch.  This card hits the sweet spot for this time of year for me.  Quick, cute and easy to duplicate!  I hope you enjoy it too!

Now I am really, REALLY excited to tell you that our Fancy Team has grown a bit.  Our new members will be introducing themselves over the next few months but I get the extraordinary pleasure of sending you over to one of my favorite stampers.  As an Artisan in 2011, Jennifer Picard has been one of my crafty heroes for a long time.  Truth be told, I’m a little star struck!  I know you will love her work as much as I do so hop right over to see what she has created.

Freshly Made Sketches #313

Freshly Made Sketches #313 published on 4 Comments on Freshly Made Sketches #313

FMS313 by Jen Timko | Cheers to the Year Stamp by Stampin' Up, Paper Pumpkin by Stampin' UpAnother week has flown by and we are back to Wednesday and Freshly Made Sketches day!  I keep feeling like the holidays are sneaking right up on me.  I decided I needed to get a bit more serious on my Christmas card production and thought it would be good to create some that are easy to reproduce.  Karren Johnson‘s sketch this week to the rescue!

I pulled out this pretty set called Cheers to the Year by Stampin’ Up.  Lovely snowflakes!  I stamped them in Smokey Slate and Dapper Denim inks (SU).  Pretty combination for sure!  After some debate, I realized I had just the right sentiment for the job from the October Paper Pumpkin kit (Stampin’ Up) and it fit the space perfectly.  The nature of the kits means that the images and sentiments are on trend and I really love this one!  I thought it might need a little something extra so I added some Basic Pearls then popped it onto a Basic Gray card base.  I think the assembly line is getting ready to get moving on this one!

I hope you are having a good week.  The design team has created a lovely variety of cards with this fun sketch and I think it is one you will have fun with too.  Hope you’ll have time to play along!  I will be back on Friday with the latest from Fancy Friday.  Until then, I hope you have a great day!

Supplies:

Stamp:  Cheers to the Year (SU), Paper Pumpkin Oct 17 Sentiment; Paper:  Thick Whisper White (SU), Basic Gray (SU); Ink:  Smokey Slate, Dapper Denim; Accessories: Misti, Basic Pearls

Freshly Made Sketches #312

Freshly Made Sketches #312 published on 7 Comments on Freshly Made Sketches #312

FMS312 by Jen Timko | Snow Globe Scenes Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs, Merry Tags Dies by Stampin' UpHappy Wednesday!  I get to share the latest sketch from Freshly Made Sketches with you today.  This one comes courtesy of the lovely and talented Cécile Ribon.  It is such fun and really unique…just like Cécile!

I pulled out this retired little ornament die (Merry Tags Thinlits).  It is hard to tell from the picture but I used Shimmery White card stock there is a bit of extra sparkle.  I used some gold washi tape to create the angled “panel” from the sketch and then pulled out a sentiment from the Snow Globe Scenes stamp set by Newton’s Nook.  It is gold embossed for shine.  Now as I’m posting this, I realize the sentiment is not placed per the sketch.  Sigh….  Hopefully Cécile will be patient with my oversight.  *smile*  I added some gold twine to follow the monochromatic theme.

I hope you like this fun little card and will join us this week.  The design team has created their usual plethora of inspiration and you are sure to fall in love with their cards!  Hope you have an amazing day.  See you soon!

Supplies (affiliate links included):

Stamp:  Snow Globe Scenes (Newton’s Nook Designs); Paper:  Shimmery White (SU); Ink:  Versamark; Accessories: Misti, Heat Tool, Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder, Big Shot, Merry Tags Thinlits (SU retired), Gold Twine, Mini Dimensionals, Gold Washi Tape (SU retired)

Celebrate Autumn

Celebrate Autumn published on 4 Comments on Celebrate Autumn

Celebrate Autumn by Jen Timko | Autumn Leaves Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Happy Little Thoughts Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs, Jute Twine by Stampin' UpAs we get closer to the holiday season, you will find that schedules get adjusted for design teams and releases.  For me, that means that I get to share another project on the Newton’s Nook Designs Blog! I know I have said it a number of times but my inspiration right now is all around me here in Virginia.  In fact I spent about an hour yesterday raking up the inspiration, haha!

The leaves are a bit more fun when they are cut from paper.  I kept this one pretty clean but I love the simplicity of fall wreaths and the natural elements.  I mimicked the idea of a vine wreath with some leaves by using some jute twine to create a simple one on the card.  I glued down the ends using Mulit Medium Matte Glue and then attached one of the pieces on the opposite side to make sure the wreath kept its shape.

Celebrate Close Up by Jen Timko | Autumn Leaves Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Happy Little Thoughts Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs, Jute Twine by Stampin' UpYou could totally create your own watercolor designs for the leaves but I cheated a bit.  I seem to have a never-ending stash of designer papers and I pulled out the retired Color Me Autumn DSP and just popped these little leaves out with the Autumn Leaves Dies.  I cut a few extra with some Early Espresso card stock too and used the centers from the leaves of those to add a few “twigs” among the leaves.  Yet again, I leaned on the awesome  Happy Little Thoughts stamp set for the sentiment since I thought this might make a nice fall birthday card.  I realized that I don’t have enough that are masculine and I think this could work well.  I added a little bow with some more jute twine to finish the wreath.  To attach the leaves, I used Mini Dimensionals (cut in half).  These little gems are a time saver for sure.  The bow is attached with the Multi Medium Matte again (in case any leaks out, it becomes invisible when it dries matte).

I’m also linking this in to the Addicted to CAS Challenge #123 : Leaves.  CAS and Leaves….two of my favorite things!!   I hope you enjoy this autumn extra today!  Make sure to stop by the Newton’s Nook Designs blog for daily inspiration!!  See you tomorrow with the latest from Freshly Made Sketches.

Stamp: Happy Little Thoughts (Newton’s Nook Designs); Ink:  Early Espresso (SU); Paper:  Naturals Ivory Card Stock (SU retired), Color Me Autumn DSP (Stampin’ Up); Accessories:  Big Shot, Autumn Leaves Dies (Newton’s Nook Designs), Jute Twine (SU – Holiday Catalog 2017), Mini Dimensionals, Multi Medium Matte Glue

Newton’s Nook Designs – 25 Days of Christmas Tags

Newton’s Nook Designs – 25 Days of Christmas Tags published on 28 Comments on Newton’s Nook Designs – 25 Days of Christmas Tags

I am so happy to joining in a fabulous event today.  Tracey McNeely has begun her 7th annual 25 Days of Christmas Tags and today Newton’s Nook Designs is the featured sponsor.  I have already gotten a sneak peek and you are going to have fun hopping through all the fabulous projects today (and for all 25 days!).

Merry and Joy Tags by Jen Timko | Snowfall Stencil by Newton's Nook Designs, Snow Globe Shaker Die Set by Newton's Nook Designs, Dotted Shaker Tag 1 Die by Studio KatiaI thought it would be fun to create tags featuring the Snowfall Stencil and the words from the Snow Globe Shaker Dies.  The dies make for quick work when you are making multiple tags.  I simply used the dies on Red Glimmer Paper (Stampin’ Up).  All the shine and no extra work!  Perfect for the holidays.  I used Embossing Paste with the stencils and just created an assembly line on them (make sure you wash off the embossing paste as soon as you can).  I attached the words to some vellum and then glued the vellum pieces to the tags using Ranger Multi Medium Matte Glue.  I colored a few rhinestones with a Copic marker and added those for more bling.  Finally, I used the Mini Tinsel Trim (it comes in red and silver) to top off the tags.  If you love sparkle for you holiday packaging, these are the tags for you!

Make sure you stop over at Tracey’s blog to see all the Newton’s Nook Designs tags and check HERE to see how you can win prizes from NND and the other generous sponsors.  Thanks so much for stopping in.  Hope you have a great day!

FMS311 by Jen Timko | Snow Much Fun Stamp Set by Stampin' Up, Be Merry DSP by Stampin' Up, Zig Clean Color PensSo you know when you are stuck for stamping mojo and you need to pull out an old favorite??  Yeah…that was me for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches card.  Not really sure why I struggled since this sketch is fabulous, but some days are like that.  The lovely Jennifer Brum gave us one that can be used in so many variations.  And oh, did I note a circle??  Jen is notoriously intimidated by circles so a big shout out for her crafty courage!  (Love ya’, Jen!!)

Do you remember this stamp set from Stampin’ Up?  It is called Snow Much Fun and I love the little snowmen in the set.  I chose this fellow and did some quick coloring with Zig Clean Color Pens.  I did hand draw in the line for his hill so that he wasn’t standing in space.  I was super happy to have some coloring time and then realized that my sentiment just wasn’t going to fit on a circle.  Sigh.  Well, I’m going with the “any shape” concept on the sketch and added it on a rectangle instead.  I chose a print from the Be Merry DSP (main catty, SU).

Tomorrow I get to be a part of a super fun month long event by Tracey McNeely, her 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2017.  See you then!

Enjoy Autumn

Enjoy Autumn published on 4 Comments on Enjoy Autumn

Enjoy Autumn by Jen Timko | Autumn Newtons Stamp Set and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Happy Little Thoughts Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs, Winsor and Newton Paints, WatercolorToday is my day to share a project on the Newton’s Nook Designs Blog and I’m still in love with all things fall!  Apparently my little friend Newton is too and I pulled out Autumn Newton to color today.

Fall in Virginia is my favorite season and we are finally really entering the season.  About time!  It seemed late to arrive this year.  I love apples and pumpkins and oh do I love the leaves!  I used some of the local fall things as inspiration for my colors (See the spotty gourd?  My friend had a picture of one like that so I had to include it!)  The leaves next to the card are from my yard and I used those colors as a start for my leaf coloring.

Enjoy Autumn Close Up by Jen Timko | Autumn Newton Stamp Set and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Happy Little Thoughts Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs, Winsor and Newton Paints, WatercolorI thought that using my Winsor and Newton watercolor paints would be the perfect way to color this.  Something about how the paints layers that ink doesn’t makes it great for blending colors and layering texture.  I used Fabriano Extra White Watercolor Paper….one of my favorites.  While the stamp set has wonderful sentiments, I leaned on one of my go-to phrases from the Happy Little Thoughts stamp set.  I thought it fit this sweet image wonderfully!  I cut a the image layer shape with the Snow Globe Shaker Dies for a fun and different look.

I’m also linking this in to the Inspired by All the Little Things challenge….more gorgeous fall loveliness.  I hope you enjoy this autumn extra today!  Make sure to stop by the Newton’s Nook Designs blog for daily inspiration!!  See you tomorrow with the latest from Freshly Made Sketches.

Freshly Made Sketches #310 published on 6 Comments on Freshly Made Sketches #310

FMS310 by Jen Timko | Be Merry Stamp Set and Dies by WPlus9, Be Merry DSP by Stampin' Up, Copic ColoringHappy Wednesday!!  We have a fabulous new sketch for you at Freshly Made Sketches.  The incredible Kim Singdahlsen is our sketch hostess this week and you are just going to fall in love!

It seems that traditional colors are the way I’m leaning this year on my Christmas cards.  I remain obsessed with this Be Merry DSP from Stampin’ Up and I added on this speckled woodgrain print from Coffee Break DSP (also SU).  I think the prints work really well together!  I kept this pretty simple and used one of my go-to Christmas sentiments from the Be Merry Stamp Set by WPlus9.  The little flower and holly leaves are from the same set and I did some quick Copic coloring.  The sentiment is from the Be Merry Stamp Set from WPlus9 and it is one of my favorites again this year.  It is stamped in Early Espresso ink to match the woodgrain paper.  To create all the rectangles, I used the Stitched Rectangles Dies by Simon Says Stamp.

I’m trying to get a little more serious about my holiday cards so I think you can expect to see more of those in the upcoming weeks.  Make sure you stop over to say hi to the team at Freshly Made Sketches.  They have created wonderful projects this week!  Thanks for stopping in today.  See you soon.

Stamp:  Be Merry (WPlus9); Paper:  Thick Whisper White (SU), Be Merry DSP (SU), Coffee Break DSP (SU); Ink:  Early Espresso (SU); Accessories: Misti, Big Shot, Stitched Rectangles Dies (Simon Says Stamp), Basic Pearls (SU)
