Newton’s Nook Designs January Release – Sending Hugs

Newton’s Nook Designs January Release – Sending Hugs published on 34 Comments on Newton’s Nook Designs January Release – Sending Hugs

Welcome back for day 2 of the January  Release from Newton’s Nook Designs.  You are going to fall head over heels with today’s set called Sending Hugs.  All of the options are perfect for pretty much anyone you could want to create a card for and wait until you see how the dies work.

Sending Love by Jen Timko | Sending Hugs Stamp Set and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Tumbling Hearts Stencil by Newton's Nook Designs, Shimmery White Embossing Paste by Stampin' Up, Chameleon Pens and Color TopsI chose this cute owl and decided to color him in bright, happy and decidedly “not real owl” colors.  I used my Chameleon Pens and Color Tops to create this fun shading.  After much debate, I thought this envelope worked well for my sentiment choice.  And now, you really need to take note…just look at how the owl is holding the letter.  Yep, the dies do that!  They cut the “hands” (feathers, paws) out so your little animal can hold the treat!  Oh…brilliant!!!  Just admit it, you want me to go stamp and cut more out right now, don’t you??  Thank goodness the team has done that and can show you more options!!  As a way to accent my owl, I used the Tumbling Hearts stencil and some new Shimmery White Embossing Paste.  The sparkle is awesome!

Sending Love Closeup by Jen Timko | Sending Hugs Stamp Set and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Shimmery White Embossing Paste by Stampin' Up, Tumbling Hearts Stencil by Newton's Nook DesignsI tried to capture some of the glittery look here but there is so much more wow in person.  To match, I added a little strip of shimmer washi tape down the side too.  I hope you enjoy this card and now time to get to everyone’s favorite part of release week.  A chance to win!!

Simply Lovely

Simply Lovely published on 2 Comments on Simply Lovely

For my Mother by Jen Timko | Lovely Blooms Stamp and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Simply Relative Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs, BrushoToday is my day to share a project on the Newton’s Nook Designs Blog.  With all the cold we have been having, something about flowers is calling my name.  So Lovely Blooms was a fun choice that I hadn’t used in a while.

I recently got some Brusho Crystal Colours and this was a great time to give them a go.  I played with all the colors in my 5 color pack (available from Stampin’ Up).  On Arches Cold Press Watercolor Paper, I stamped the jar with Versafine Onyx Black Ink.  I filled the jar with water using my paint brush and then sprinkled on the Prussian Blue Brusho.  It is super cool to watch the color spread and move.  I did the same with the flower and the leaves.  The flower uses Gamboge, Brilliant Red and Yellow and the leaves use Moss Green and Yellow.  Just put on the water and sprinkle…it is that easy.  I had my 11 yo help on the leaves because he thought it was so interesting.  Once everything was dry, I cut the flowers and the leaves with the coordinating dies.  For the background wash, I sprinkled a little bit of powder into a palette and added water to create the paler version of the colors.  I love that you can use this in multiple ways too.  I pulled a sentiment from Simply Relative…such a must have set!  You can’t see it from this picture but I actually attached the watercolor panel to a pale yellow card base for a sweet surprise when you open the card.

I hope you enjoy this floral burst of color today!  Make sure to stop by the Newton’s Nook Designs blog for daily inspiration.  Thanks so much for stopping in and I’ll see you soon!

Stamp: Lovely Blooms (Newton’s Nook Designs), Simply Relative (Newton’s Nook Designs); Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black; Paper:  Arches Cold Press Watercolor; Accessories:  Big Shot, Lovely Blooms Dies (Newton’s Nook Designs), Misti, Silver Paint Brush, Brusho Crystal Colour (SU 5-pack)

Freshly Made Sketches #317

Freshly Made Sketches #317 published on 8 Comments on Freshly Made Sketches #317

FMS317 by Jen Timko | Lots of Lavender Stamp Set by Stampin' Up, Friendship's Sweetest Thoughts Stamp Set by Stampin' Up, Tim Holtz Distress Ink, Wood Textures DSP by Stampin' UpYes, I finally did it.  I took a break from making Christmas cards.  Yes, I still have some to finish and all of them to address but I needed a brief reprieve.  So I used this week’s Freshly Made Sketches sketch designed by the amazing Jen Mitchell to show off some new things.

Alright, alright, the sketch is actually a square.  And I really love square cards!  But I wanted to use this lavender image so badly and it just fit better on a rectangle.  The flower is from the new Sale-a-bration set called Lots of Lavender and it will be available on January 3rd for free with a $50 US purchase.  I actually heard it calling to me the second I saw it.  I used some soft Tim Holtz Distress Inks on Bristol Smooth paper to color it and the background.  Such a pretty one to work with and it hardly takes any time to color.  I wanted to use this sentiment from the new Friendship’s Sweetest Thoughts Stamp Set (Occasions 2018, available on Jan 3rd too) but didn’t want to lose any of the image.  Vellum to the rescue.  I added a small piece of Elegant Eggplant behind the image panel to try to keep with the sketch.  The whole panel is popped up on foam (I find this helps keep the panel smooth after watercoloring) and then put on a base from the Wood Textures DSP.  These woodgrains are so pretty and can be used in so many ways.

I hope you like this pretty little look at spring!  Now off I go, back to the Christmas card production line!  Thanks so much for stopping in today.  I’m back tomorrow with a fun card for Newton’s Nook.  Until then, have a great day!
