Newton’s Nook Designs April Release – Newton’s Birdbath

Newton’s Nook Designs April Release – Newton’s Birdbath published on 33 Comments on Newton’s Nook Designs April Release – Newton’s Birdbath

So today is the last day of the April release from Newton’s Nook Designs.  So far, there hasn’t been a Newton…were you getting worried??!!  No fear, today is the day for all of you who love this fellow!

Newton's Birdbath by Jen Timko | Newton's Birdbath Stamp Set and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Copic ColoringYou know the hardest part about Newton sets??  Ok, besides choosing a favorite.  I always debate what kind of kitty he gets to be.  For this card, I chose to make him look a bit more like the real Newton (you can see his pictures over on the company site).

I started by stamping the images and coloring them with Copic markers (colors listed below).  Once I was done and had the images cut out with the coordinating dies, I thought it best to create a cute little scene.  The Land Border Dies with the grass border was exactly what I needed!  All you have to do is make one cut and you have two grassy edges.  And this sentiment….yes, I have already given you my disclaimer on love them….it is another one that is wonderful to have for so many occasions.  Ready to this guy for free??  Here you go:

Newton’s Nook Designs April Release – Simply Relative

Newton’s Nook Designs April Release – Simply Relative published on 29 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 – Beautiful Plumage

Newton’s Nook Designs April Release – Beautiful Plumage published on 30 Comments on Newton’s Nook Designs April Release – Beautiful Plumage

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!

Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop published on 13 Comments on Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

The Spring Coffee Lovers Bloghop is well underway and what fun it is!  I was happy to get a little time to join in this time because I’m always so inspired by the lovely work in the hop.  It was also a good time to make sure I’m still coloring for The 30 Day Coloring Challenge this month.

Spring Hello by Jen Timko | Spring CLBH Digital Stamp by JessicaLynn Original, Copic Coloring I was thrilled to see this free download set from JessicaLynn Original that was created just for the blog hop.  I don’t use digital stamps very often but this one was so pretty I just had to!  The nice part is that you can size the image to your taste.  I printed it onto X-Press It Blending Card so I could color it with my Copics.  I took a Copic Coloring Class about a week ago (Copic Flowers with Lori Craig) and tried to apply some of what I learned with her.  This image was super fun to use!

Just a quick post today.  Back in the craft room working on some projects for later this week.  I hope you have an amazing day.  Don’t forget to go over to the blog hop to see all the talented stampers who have joined in!  See you soon!

Supplies:

Stamps:  Spring 2017 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Digital Stamp (JessicaLynn Original); Ink: Copic Markers, Versafine Onyx Black; Paper: X-Press It, Bermuda Bay; Accessories:  Misti, Big Shot, Stitched Rectangles Dies (Simon Says Stamp), Softly Falling Embossing Folder (SU), Bermuda Bay Baker’s Twine (SU), Dimensionals

Inky Paws #43

Inky Paws #43 published on No Comments on Inky Paws #43

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!

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!

I’m back with Day 2 of February Release Week with Newton’s Nook Designs!  Today we are changing directions a bit with a beautiful swirls addition called Beautiful Spring.  As with all the sets in this collection, the images lend themselves to so many coloring variations and elegant, unique projects.Egg-stra Special Wishes by Jen Timko | Beautiful Spring Stamp Set and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Copic Coloring #newtonsnookThese beautiful images just begged to be colored with happy spring colors so out came the Copics (colors listed below) and I started just playing with the variety of eggs.  I confess that I got completely distracted and colored all the designs before I got back on track for putting this together.  I love how easily the die set cuts these out!!  I created a watercolor layer behind the eggs to help them pop and then thought this fun sentiment was just the one for the card.  With all the fantastic choices in this set, you are going to really enjoy all the ways to color.  Just go ahead and stamp them all at once and have fun!  And you know you need to have this so take advantage of this great opportunity…

Are you ready for another week of amazing releases from Newton’s Nook Designs???  Just say yes because you are going to LOVE what we have to show this week!  First up Newton himself is making an appearance and he seems to have the luck of the Irish!  Newton’s Pot of Gold is being featured along with the Land Borders die set.

Newton Finds the Gold by Jen Timko | Newton's Pot of Gold Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs, Land Borders Dies #newtonsnookThis sweet little stamp set is perfect for your St. Patrick’s Day fun but I love that the sentiments will be ones you can turn to again and again.  I started by coloring my image with Copic Markers (colors listed below) and while I was coloring, I had some inspiration.  How about using sequins as gold?!  Yes, they are totally perfect with the scale of the image and I could not even be more excited about how this turned out.  So how did I get the sequins on there?  It was actually easier than I thought it would be.  I put a ‘blob’ (yep, official crafting term) of Ranger Multi Medium Matte Glue on a scrap of paper and then using a toothpick end, applied the glue where I wanted it to be.  Then just added the sequin on top.  I put down one layer in the placement of the gold on the stamp image and once dry, added some more on top.  This glue dries pretty quickly and most importantly, it dries with a matte finish.

I needed just the right layer for this fun image to go on, so I created a little interest using the Land Borders Die. I cut a piece of Green Apple Card Stock (SSS) with the border die, then laid it on some white card stock and cut again with a stitched rectangle.  The sentiment is really one that I’m happy to add to my repertoire (being a hoarder collector of sentiments).  Now here is the best part….
