Newton’s Nook Designs – 25 Days of Christmas Tags

Newton’s Nook Designs – 25 Days of Christmas Tags published on 29 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!

Freshly Made Sketches #299

FMS299 by Jen Timko | Mini Thank You Stamp by Studio Katia, Tim Holtz Distress InkWhat is it about summer that seems to fly by?!  Another week has come and gone already.  I survived clothes shopping with the “back-to-school duo” and we are trying to fit in as much summer as we can over the next couple of weeks until school begins.  With that, I am back today with a card for Freshly Made Sketches.  The incredible Kim Singdahlsen has given us a unique and fantastic sketch that is sure to inspire you!  I just love it!!

While I first thought about using some pretty papers for the panels, I realized that I liked the idea of washi tape instead.  I found two from SU in my stash that have differing width stripes and I thought they would be great together.  I created a watercolor background using Picked Raspberry Distress Ink and then added the washi tape.  I stamped the gorgeous sentiment from Studio Katia in Versafine Onyx Black and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  A few little sequins to finish.  It kind of has a summer feel to it, don’t you think?  Fun, bright and a little bit of whimsy.

I hope you will have as much fun with this as I did.  Make sure you check out the work from the whole design team…always a treat!!  I’ll be back tomorrow to share with you my project for the joint collaboration between Newton’s Nook Designs and Xyron.  There is all kinds of fun happening at the NND blog so don’t miss out!  Until then, have a great day!

Supplies:

Stamp:  Mini Thank You (Studio Katia); Paper:  Thick Whisper White (SU), Basic Black (SU); Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black, Picked Raspberry Distress Ink; Accessories: Washi Tape (SU), Metallic Sequins (SU), Heat Tool, Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder (SU), Misti

FMS291 by Jen Timko | Butterfly Kisses by Mama Elephant, Thank You by Studio KatiaI hope your week has been wonderful and full of summer fun!  We are still finishing up some school things with one of my sons so it doesn’t quite feel like summer yet…but soon!  Just a few more days!  And that anticipation was definitely on my mind as I worked on this card for today.  Our hostess, the wonderful Jennifer Brum, has created a wonderful sketch for us at Freshly Made Sketches this week.

I started with this pretty little butterfly from Mama Elephant and did a quick coloring with Ripe Persimmon Distress Ink.  I love butterflies and I’m finally started to see some around here.  Always makes me happy!  I created a watercolor background using a couple of yellow Distress Inks and the “smoosh” technique (apply the ink to acetate, spritz and ink the paper).  I this the two tones of yellow add a nice contrast.  This gorgeous sentiment comes from Studio Katia and it was an extra treat in our supplies that came for last week’s collaboration hop with Newton’s Nook Designs and Studio Katia.  LOVE this scripty font, don’t you?!  I thought a couple of the Clear Round Drops from Studio Katia to finish.  Quick and easy and perfect for summer (and it let me get back outside on a beautiful day)!

I hope you have fun with this sketch.  You can use designer paper, background stamps or keep it simple like it did.  Tons of ways to use this one!  The DT has shown you that, as always.  Love those gals!  I hope your week has time for some crafty fun.  Until next time, thanks for stopping in!

Newton’s Nook Designs Plus Studio Katia – Summer Fun

Newton’s Nook Designs Plus Studio Katia – Summer Fun published on 43 Comments on Newton’s Nook Designs Plus Studio Katia – Summer Fun

Welcome to the Summer Fun Collaboration Blog hop with Newton’s Nook Designs and Studio Katia! Both teams are celebrating the start of summer with fun and colorful cards using stamps from Newton’s Nook Designs and dies and embellishments from Studio Katia. There’s prizes too! Both companies have a prize to give away too so make sure you read all the way to the bottom of this post to see how to win!Did Someone Say Cake Card by Jen Timko | Newton Loves Cake Stamp and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Sequins from Studio Katia, Dotted Shaker Tag Die by Studio KatiaMy first thought when I saw the summer theme was a birthday card.  Maybe because it is because my oldest son is a “beginning of summer” baby, haha!  But something about these bright happy sequins from Studio Katia and this adorable tag die screamed birthday to me.  After consulting with my youngest son (this card was from him for his brother), we chose the Newton Loves Cake stamp to color for the card.  I love this little Newton and I colored his cupcake with Copics to match the sequins.  Adorable!!  This tag die makes creating a shaker super easy too.Cake Tag Closeup by Jen Timko | Newton Loves Cake Stamp and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Dotted Shaker Tag by Studio KatiaWith the black card stock, it was hard to see the tag details in my full picture so I wanted to show you a closeup too.  I created my own mix of sequins with the Sunny Side Up, Enchanted Sea and Lipstick Red Sequins.  I have to admit that Newton looks pretty proud of his giant cupcake, don’t you think?!  Again, little brother thought the striped paper behind the tag made the card look like a “boy card” so I trusted his judgement.  I tied on some red ribbon and black baker’s twine to finish the tag.  The verdict???  As soon as the birthday boy picked up the envelope, he knew it was a shaker card.  And apparently even 14 year old boys who are very, very cool cannot resist shaking a shaker card!  *smile*  Now you need to get on with the hop but first…

We are giving away TWO prizes – one prize pack from Studio Katia and one $25 store credit from Newton’s Nook Designs!

Amazing Friend by Jen Timko | Lovely Blooms Stamp by Newton's Nook Designs, WatercolorToday is my day to share a project on the Newton’s Nook Designs Blog and I am so excited about this one!  I had a card like this in mind for a while using the Lovely Blooms stamp set and this exceeded even what I had envisioned (and that NEVER happens).  The best part, it came together so quickly.  This is super fun and really easy to reproduce!

I stamped using Versamark ink onto Strathmore Mixed Media paper.  Quick and sort of random with nothing too fussy.  Then I heat embossed using white embossing powder.  I love the half wreath feel so I added this great sentiment from the set using the same method.  Then all I did was color using Winsor and Newton paints. I got the image wet and dropped in color.  For some I let the colors combine but with others (purple specifically) it is best to let things dry first and then layer color on top.  With paints, you can do that and avoid muddiness.  I added these sweet little Clear Round Drops from Studio Katia to mimic the look of water.

I hope this will encourage you to try your hand at watercoloring too.  It doesn’t all have to be in the lines or perfect!  Hope you have a great day.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Stamp: Lovely Blooms (Newton’s Nook Designs); Ink:  Versamark; Paper:  Strathmore Mixed Media, Green Leaf Card Stock (SSS); Accessories:  Silver Brush Round 4, Winsor and Newton Paints, Heat Tool, White Stampin’ Emboss Powder (SU), Clear Round Drops (Studio Katia)

FMS289 by Jen Timko | Lovely Blooms Stamps and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Studio Katia SequinsOh, look at the amazing sketch we have for you today over at Freshly Made Sketches!  My friend Linda Callahan, queen of clever, is our hostess this week and her sketch will get you moving right to your craft room!

As soon as I saw the sketch, I thought shaker card.  So that is just what I made!  I did a quick watercolor using Tim Holtz Distress Inks on these fun flowers from the Lovely Blooms Stamp set (Newton’s Nook Designs) and cut them out with coordinating dies.  I chose colors to match my awesome sequins from Studio Katia and to make my coordination easy.  I cut a frame with Stitched Shapes Thinlits (SU).  The sentiment from Happy Little Thoughts (NND) was stamped onto the window sheet (also cut with the square die) and then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.  Kind of wish I had black powder for a sharper look but I think this works with the loose watercolor look from the flowers.  I rooted around in my DSP stack until I found a print that worked in the background.  I kind of love these stripes!

I have been stamping madly and have lots coming up for you in the next couple of weeks.  Until next time, I hope you have an amazing day!  Thanks for stopping in!

Supplies:

Stamps:  Lovely Blooms (Newton’s Nook Designs), Happy Little Thoughts (Newton’s Nook Designs); Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black, Tim Holtz Distress Inks; Paper:  Fabriano Watercolor, Typeset Specialty DSP (SU Retired); Accessories:  Big Shot, Stitched Shapes Thinlits, Window Sheet, Sequins by Studio Katia and 28 Lilac Lane, Foam Adhesive Strips
