Newton’s Nook Designs April Release – Simply Relative

Newton’s Nook Designs April Release – Simply Relative published on 31 Comments on Newton’s Nook Designs April Release – Simply Relative

Wow, it is already day 3 of the April release from Newton’s Nook Designs.  Today is the day for all of you “sentiment-a-holics”!!  You know who you are!

Wonderful Teacher by Jen Timko | Simply Relative Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs, Lovely Blooms Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs, Copic ColoringI mentioned yesterday how much I love flower sets but good sentiment sets are another love of mine.  And this is an amazing sentiment set!!  Just look at all the choices to personalize cards for the people you love.  So many of these are options I have not seen in a stamp before and I’m so happy to have them.

I also told you yesterday that the Lovely Blooms set was perfect for coloring and I used it again here to create a frame with flowers.  I chose some pretty pinks and purples and stamped a whole bunch of little flowers.  Before you know it, I had a virtual garden to choose from.  The little dies eliminate any need for fussy cutting and make it easy to create fun groupings.  I chose to make this for a teacher that certainly deserves recognition!  To be truthful, just having this word choice makes the set a must have!  I used the Sky Borders Dies to create a scallop and picked a pretty raspberry card stock as a base.  This is a card that you could easily duplicate for all the teachers who need a little pick-me-up this time of year!  So now is the time that we all love….

Newton’s Nook Designs April Release – Lovely Blooms published on 28 Comments on Newton’s Nook Designs April Release – Lovely Blooms

Welcome back for another day of release week for the April release from Newton’s Nook Designs.  Day 2 has a beautiful flower set called Lovely Blooms.

Blooms for Mom by Jen Timko | Lovely Blooms Stamp Set and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Tim Holtz Distress Ink, Mason Jar, #newtonsnookI hardly knew where to start with this set.  If you follow me, you know I love myself a flower.  And this set is full of pretty images to mix and match.  I finally settled on creating a watercolor styled card but kept it simple.  I sponged Distress Ink onto watercolor paper creating some ombré effects and then stamped over the sponging with the images.  The coordinating Lovely Blooms Dies made short work of cutting things out so that I could create this pretty little arrangement.  The script sentiments are really great so I chose to create this one for mom.  Um….sorry mom, should have given a spoiler alert.  I added a few sequins for a finishing touch and I just love the effect you get on this with no actual coloring required.

Of course, if you love to color, this set is totally for you too!  I’ll show you what I mean tomorrow!  Until then, you have a chance to win this set with just some simple commenting.

Happy Monday to you!  Today is the start of release week for the April release from Newton’s Nook Designs.  This release is so perfect for spring and you are going to love it!

Beautiful Peacock by Jen Timko | Beautiful Plumage Stamp Set and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Copic Coloring on VellumThis new set is a really lovely start to the April offerings, don’t you think?  The swirl images are always so pretty and the peacocks are fabulous!  The sentiments that go with this set are also ones you are sure to love.

I decided to emboss the image with gold onto vellum and I love the effect.  Using Copic markers, I colored on the back of the stamped image to create the color variances in his feathers.  This technique is very forgiving and fun to do.  Here is a closeup so you can see him a little better.Beautiful Plumage closeup by Jen Timko | Newton's Nook DesignsI added another vellum panel over the card base.  Using the coordinating die cuts for the set, the peacock is super easy to cut out.  To help him stand out more, he is up on a stitched circle and I added some gold thread behind him.  I know you will love all that the design team has to show you and here is your chance to get the set for free!

Newton’s Nook Designs – Cottage Flowers

Hello Friend by Jen Timko | Cottage Garden Stamp Set and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Distress Ink, Watercolor I’m up today over at the Newton’s Nook Designs blog today and I want to share all the details with you here.  My project focuses on the Cottage Garden Stamp Set and coordinating dies.

The art in this beautiful stamp set is unique and really pretty but I also fell in love with the sentiments.  I created this card to show one of them off and to also highlight that the dies are able to multitask.  On a piece of watercolor paper (Tim Holtz Distress), I sponged on some different Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Picked Raspberry, Mowed Lawn, Blueprint Sketch and Squeezed Lemonade then splattered on a bit of water.  Using the dies, I cut out the flowers big and small.  Additionally I created a frame with the ovals from my Stitched Shapes dies.  I stamped the sentiment in Picked Raspberry onto a white base (using the Misti helps since I needed to stamp a few times given the nature of Distress Ink).  All I had to do was group my flowers and add some Basic Pearls.

I love when die sets lend themselves to quick cards and I think these flowers are ones I’ll return to again and again (and of course, all the other adorable shapes in the set!).  Back tomorrow with the latest from Freshly Made Sketches.  Thanks so much for stopping in.  See you soon!

Supplies:

Stamps:  Cottage Garden (Newton’s Nook); Ink: Tim Holtz Distress Inks (Picked Raspberry, Mowed Lawn, Blueprint Sketch, Squeezed Lemonade); Paper: Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor, Thick Whisper White (SU); Accessories:  Misti, Big Shot, Cottage Garden Dies, Stitched Shaped Thinlits (SU), Basic Pearls (SU), Dimensionals

Inky Paws #43 by Jen Timko | Winston Takes Flight Stamp and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Land Borders Dies by Newton's Nook DesignsHappy Monday to you all!  I hope you had a fun weekend and are ready for a great week.  I’m starting off the week with the latest Inky Paws Challenge and it is a great sketch.  I could not resist pulling out my Winston Takes Flight stamp and dies again and coloring them with Copics Markers.  This fellow really makes me happy!

I stamped the plane and banner onto Thick Whisper White card stock and got to coloring.  I thought that our little bear friend would enjoy a red airplane this time.  The little banner in this set is super fun and I did not use it last week during reveal week so I showed it here.  Love how the sentiments fit right onto the banner!  I created a “sky” with some retired DSP and used the Land Borders Dies for the curved edge.  I did flip the sketch to landscape but otherwise tried to stay true to it.  What a fun one!  I hope you will join the challenge and I cannot wait to see how you interpret it.

I went to a Copic coloring class on Friday with the amazing Lori Craig (Copic Flowers) and I just have to say that if you ever have the chance to take one of these, GO!!  It was so fun and I learned so much!  The rest of my weekend was spent being a soccer mom with the beginning of season tournaments for my boys.  Lots of amazing soccer was played and I’m super proud of my lads.  Back to the stamp room this week for more coloring and more fun!  Hope you have some time to get inky too!  See you soon!

Supplies:

Stamps:  Winston Takes Flight (Newton’s Nook); Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black, Copic Markers; Paper: Thick Whisper White, Basic Gray, Blue Polka Dot (SU ret); Accessories:  Misti, Black Baker’s Twine (SU), Big Shot, Land Borders Dies (NND), Winston Takes Flight Dies (NND), Dimensionals

Newton’s Nook Designs March Release – Newton’s Rainy Day

Newton’s Nook Designs March Release – Newton’s Rainy Day published on 26 Comments on Newton’s Nook Designs March Release – Newton’s Rainy Day

I can’t believe that it is already the last day of the March release from Newton’s Nook Designs.  Today’s set will be an instant classic for all you Newton fans.  This one just has my heart!

Rain or Shine by Jen Timko | Newton's Rainy Day Stamp Set and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Sky Borders Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Copic ColoringI feel like acts of kindness are such an important part of our stamping community and this image just embodies that attitude!  Little Newton helping his friend makes me happy.

I stamped the image plus a bunch of the rain drops using Momento Tuxedo Black ink onto Thick Whisper White card stock and then colored using Copic Markers (colors listed below).  Then I just started coloring away.  I debated making the umbrella rainbow colors (which would be totally adorable, by the way) but after creating a green panel, I just kept going with the green.  I cut our pair out with the coordinating dies and did the same with the raindrop trios.  Having those popped up for dimension is a small detail that makes all the difference.  Love that they have a die for it!  I created a corner cloud by using the Sky Borders die on an angle and then cutting a second time with a stitched rectangle.  I used a base in the same colors as the rain and puddles and then chose this fun yellow envelope to match our duck.  I hope this will brighten someone’s day.  It will be in the mail soon since I created it with a special someone in mind.  Now make sure you get to hopping around because I know you want a chance to win this one!

Today is a double post day and this is for day 3 of the March release from Newton’s Nook Designs.  Today we are sharing a set called Cottage Garden and its coordinating dies.  So many beautiful images!  If you are looking for my FMS card today just give a quick scroll.

Hello Friend by Jen Timko | Cottage Garden Stamp Set and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Sky Borders Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Floral Boutique DSP by Stampin' UpThe Scandinavian feel of this art work was my inspiration for my card today.  Something about the blue and white simply felt like the best way to show off the lovely details.  I stamped the image in Night of Navy ink and then cut out the image with the coordinating dies.  These dies are a must have because being able to pop these images up really makes the card a wow!  I used one of the sentiments from the set too and stamped onto a white panel.  I cut the scallops using the Sky Borders Die from this new release and then cut the whole layer using a stitched rectangle.  I really liked the dots of this DSP bring with that mimic the dots in the stamp.  I thought about adding pearls and other embellishments, but in the end I felt like this was the perfect showcase for the set and left it clean.  You know what comes next, right?

Newton’s Nook Designs March Release – Lovable Laundry

Newton’s Nook Designs March Release – Lovable Laundry published on 28 Comments on Newton’s Nook Designs March Release – Lovable Laundry

Back for Day 2 of release week for the March release from Newton’s Nook Designs.  And you are totally going to be overwhelmed with cuteness today!  The set we are showing is called Lovable Laundry and it has a coordinating Stitched Onesie Die….sweetness overload!

Hello Baby by Jen Timko | Lovable Laundry Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs, Darling Hearts Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Softly Falling Textured Embossing by Stampin' Up, Sparkling Clear Sequins by Pretty Pink PoshThere are so many cute onesie designs in this set and I have to admit that I have already colored them all.  Talk about a distraction!  I just could not decide what colors to use so….I used pretty much ALL of them.  The good news is that I have a little stack ready for baby cards at a moments notice.

I stamped the onesie using Momento Tuxedo Black ink onto Thick Whisper White card stock and then colored using Copic Markers (colors listed below).  I just love how easy it is to cut it out with the Stitched Onesie Die and just look at that cute stitching that the die adds.  Small details make such a difference!  I wanted to show this off with a clean card so I cut out this stitched heart with the Darling Hearts die and added the little sentiments from the set.  There are so many combinations that you are sure to find just the right one.  And the little hanger is from my stash.  Can I admit now that when you find something from long ago that works right, it is NOT helpful in encouraging a de-stash.  Now I will use all of these hangers that I have on hand (from 2013 no less).  While I wanted clean, I did not want plain so I added these embossed dots and the beautiful Sparkling Clear Sequins to add some interest to the card.  I’m sure you know by now that the next step is a great opportunity for Newton’s Nook Design fans!!

Guess what today is?!  The start of release week for the March release from Newton’s Nook Designs.  I swear each release gets better and better!  I won’t even keep you in suspense.  Let’s just get this started!

I Just Plane Like You by Jen Timko | Winston Takes Flight by Newton's Nook Designs, Sky Borders Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Distress Ink, Watercolor, #newtonsnookSo you know that I almost died of joy the second I saw this set, right?  I mean really.  This adorable little Winston and a plane!  It is like Jennifer Jackson knew how much I needed this when she designed this set.  I’m forever on the lookout for the perfect plane and sentiments and this set has them all!  The hardest part was getting my brain to focus on what to make first.  I thought that I’d be good starting with Distress Ink coloring since I could show off the new Sky Borders Dies along with this set by creating a sky background.

I inked up watercolor paper with Broken China ink and then added some splatters of water.  Then I cut 2 layers of the clouds with the Sky Border Dies and offset them.  I used a stitched rectangle die to get them all evened up and created the sky for my plane.  After some debate I chose an orange and yellow palette for the plane (who doesn’t love a yellow plane?!) that I thought was fun and a great way to show off this image.  The coordination die set makes it super simple to create scenes since it includes clouds and a die for the banner image too.  I found this happy bright base that matched my plane (Sunshine by Simon Says Stamp).  Now here is some more exciting news….

Beautiful Flower for Newton’s Nook Designs

Beautiful Flower for Newton’s Nook Designs published on 4 Comments on Beautiful Flower for Newton’s Nook Designs

Beautiful Flower by Jen Timko | Beautiful Spring Stamp Set and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Happy Little Thoughts Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs, Pop of Pink DSP by Stampin' UpIt is my turn for a bonus project over at the Newton’s Nook Designs blog today and I want to share all the details with you here.  I remain obsessed with the quilled designs in the Beautiful Spring stamp set and I wanted to focus on the flower today.

The art work on this series of stamps (Beautiful Swirls) is really stunning and I thought that stamping on vellum might be a great way to show off the art within the images.  I stamped in Versamark ink and then heat embossed with white embossing powder.  Then I colored on the back side of the image using Copic markers.  It is hard to capture on camera but in person you can see the shading on the flower and leaves a bit more.  The coordinating dies make quick work of cutting this out and all I had to do next was figure out how to show off the flower!  I first tried it against white (and I’ll admit, it is really pretty) but I wanted something a bit bolder.  So I pulled this gold tag from my stash and I knew I was moving in the right direction.  I chose a sentiment from Happy Little Thoughts.  Apparently this is becoming one of my go-to sentiments!  Love that whole set!  I chose this patterned paper from Stampin’ Up and added some colored rhinestones to coordinate with the red flower.

I hope you are having a fabulous week so far.  I have been working busily on the March release that is coming up next week for Newton’s Nook Designs.  Oh, you are going to be in love!  Suffice it to say I have made multiple cards already for some of the sets because I keep getting distracted with them!  Maybe today will be the day I stay on track…..or not!  Either way, I can’t wait to share with you!  Back tomorrow with the latest from Freshly Made Sketches.  Thanks so much for stopping in.  See you soon!
