Newton’s Nook Designs June Release – Coffee and Wine plus Wine a Little (and some FMS)

Newton’s Nook Designs June Release – Coffee and Wine plus Wine a Little (and some FMS) published on 19 Comments on Newton’s Nook Designs June Release – Coffee and Wine plus Wine a Little (and some FMS)

Welcome to day 3 of the June Release from Newton’s Nook Designs.  Busy, busy bees we are today because the team has two sets to feature!!  And there is wine.  Because…Wednesday!  I have some Freshly Made Sketches too…also because Wednesday.

Coffee and Wine by Jen Timko | Coffee and Wine Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs, Serene Stripes Stencil by Newton's Nook DesignsAs with yesterday, the stencil was the start of my design.  Today, I chose the Serene Stripes Stencil and sponged on some Cracked Pistachio Distress Ink over it.  I just made it fade a bit as it went down the card.  I love stencils!!!  So much wow!  I stamped the sentiment from the Coffee and Wine over the stenciling and then stamped some of the images (all of this was onto Bristol Vellum card stock).  I colored the cup and bottle with some more Distress Ink and then popped them up on foam dots (Dimensionals).  I found some sequins that matched (YAY!) so I added those and then put the whole layer on a black base.

Sip Happens by Jen Timko | Wine a Little Stamp Set and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, FMS 342For my second card, I used the fun sketch designed by Amy O’Neill for Freshly Made Sketches to show off the Wine a Little stamp set and dies.  This sentiment (and the others in the set) are such fun and perfect for any wino oenophile.  Like me.  I created pretty glasses that I’d love to have and filled them with yummy red wine.  But feel free to color your own fave!

Because you made it to Wednesday, you deserve a glass of wine.  And a chance to win!  So you know what time it is…hop around to the whole DT and make sure leave comments.  They make me and the other designers smile really big and they really mean a ton!

Would you like to win either the “Coffee and Wine” or the “Wine a Little” Stamp Set?

Each set will be given away to ONE lucky winner!

Welcome to day 2 of the June Release from Newton’s Nook Designs.  Today’s set reveal is sure to make you smile…I mean really, who doesn’t like llamas?? So naturally, you will fall for Loveable Llamas!

Have a LLama Fun by Jen Timko | Loveable Llamas Stamp Set and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Sunscape Stencil by Newton's Nook DesignsThis gorgeous stencil was my starting place of the card.  The Sunscape Stencil give you the choice of the sun, some landscape or both!  It is awesome!  I chose to use just the sun for this and sponged on some Distress Ink in yellows and oranges.  Then I got to coloring this super fun little llama.  I love all the options for him and oh, those glasses.  Well, they were a must to go along with the sunny background.  Plus, the glasses make the card super “cool” for just about anyone’s birthday!  I colored the llama and his accessories using Distress Inks too and then just layered them on.  This was just a fun card to make!

I love when a stamp set makes it simply fun to sit down and create!  So you know what time it is…hop around to the whole DT and make sure leave comments for your chance to win.

Newton’s Nook Designs June Release – Playful Pandas

Newton’s Nook Designs June Release – Playful Pandas published on 30 Comments on Newton’s Nook Designs June Release – Playful Pandas

Welcome to day 1 of the June Release from Newton’s Nook Designs.  This is just the release you needed to see for your summer crafting fun!  You are going to love it.  Today we start off with an adorable set called Playful Pandas and two (yes, TWO) stencils.

Hey There by Jen Timko | Playful Pandas Stamp Set and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Copic ColoringI cannot even get enough of these little pandas.  They are so stinkin’ cute I can hardly stand it!  And I’m not alone.  I was in the process of adhering the card together when my youngest came in and claimed it as “his” birthday card for his older brother.  He sure knows the way to this mom’s heart, lol!

I stamped the panda and cut him out (what is not to love about that?!) and then I stamped a bunch of the bamboo images and colored them up really quickly with Copics.  I wasn’t sure how many I wanted so I cut them all and then created a bit of a random arrangement.  I chose the Hey There sentiment for a more universal card (and birthday, apparently) but I really think this would be funny with the “sorry for what I said when I was hungry”.  The black and white striped paper seemed like a natural for the card and I added just a bit of lime paper as a layer for more color.   The stencils introduced today are really fab too and I have projects showing you more with those later in the week.  So you know what time it is…hop around to the whole DT and make sure leave comments for your chance to win.

Would you like to win the “Playful Pandas” Stamp Set?

Each set will be given away to ONE lucky winner!

Thinking of You for Newton’s Nook Designs

Thinking of You for Newton’s Nook Designs published on No Comments on Thinking of You for Newton’s Nook Designs

Thinking of You by Jen Timko | Wedding Frills Stamp Set and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Peony Blooms Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs, Smooch Accent Ink by ClearsnapToday is my day to share a project on the Newton’s Nook Designs Blog.  As I sat down to create, I was drawn to subtle and soft colors and decided that the pretty Wedding Frills stamp set would be perfect for them.

Using a piece of Bristol Smooth paper I inked up the background with Distress Inks and then splattered a bit with water.  I stamped the little flower (in truth, I stamped three of them) and then colored with the Distress Ink and used the coordinating Wedding Frills Dies to cut out the images.  I love the fonts in the Peony Blooms stamp set and thought the muted colors could be perfect for a “thinking of you” kind of card….could be sympathy, could be just because.  I had planned to put three flowers down the edge but when I was playing with the final layout, I found I liked it with just one.  To add a little more detail to the card, I splattered on some Smooch Accent Ink in Moonlight.  So pretty!!

Thinking of You by Jen Timko | Wedding Frills Stamp Set and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Peony Blooms Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs, Smooch Accent Ink by ClearsnapI hope you are inspired to get inky today!!  I love when I can create just for fun and this card really was just that. 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!

Stamps: Wedding Frills (Newton’s Nook Designs), Peony Blooms (Newton’s Nook Designs); Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black, Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Antique Linen, Tattered Rose, Weathered Wood, Bundled Sage), Smooch Accent Ink in Moonlight (Clearsnap); Paper:  Strathmore Bristol Smooth; Accessories:  Big Shot, Wedding Frills Dies (Newton’s Nook Designs), Misti

Newton’s Nook Designs May Release – Newton Loves Boxes and Newton’s Donut

Newton’s Nook Designs May Release – Newton Loves Boxes and Newton’s Donut published on 29 Comments on Newton’s Nook Designs May Release – Newton Loves Boxes and Newton’s Donut

Welcome to the last day of the May Release from Newton’s Nook Designs.  And for the last day we have not one but TWO adorable Newton sets for you.  YAY!!!  Yep, two of the greatest things in the world….boxes and donuts.

You Can Do It by Jen Timko | Newtons Loves Boxes Stamp Set and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Pawprints Stencil by Newton's Nook DesignsIf you have ever known a cat, you already know all about the phrase “if it fits, it sits”.  Well, the new Newton Loves Boxes is all about fitting and sitting!!  It is hilarious.  When Jennifer Jackson first showed the team the images, we all went just a little bit crazy!  Pretty sure that will be the reaction from all of you today too.  I created a background with the Pawprints Stencil and Distress Inks and then cut it out with the Frames and Flags Die.  I colored up out furry friend and his box and then cut him out with the coordinating die set for the stamp.  Don’t you think this sentiment is perfect for the image.  Seriously, this cracks me up.

Sprinkles by Jen Timko | Newton's Donut Stamp Set and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Tutti-frutti DSP by Stampin' Up, Copic ColoringFor my second card, I get to introduce Newton’s Donut.  Well, I actually colored MY donut.  That I want.  Right now.  But until I can figure out how to get it from him, it is Newtons’ donut.  *smile*  And because I am pretty sure sprinkles should always include pink and lime green, that is what I chose for the colors.

Sprinkles Closeup by Jen Timko | Newton's Donut Stamp Set and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Tutti-frutti DSP by Stampin' Up, Copic ColoringI made the donut into a chocolate version with vanilla frosting (a favorite of mine) and then tucked in this adorable  kitty colored with gray.  And there is something about the images with kitty “beans” (paw pads) that make me smile!  I used a base of lime patterned paper and some great (retired) pink washi tape to pull the colors from the sprinkles and then added on some sequins in the same colors.  On a technical note, I just have to tell you how well engineered this donut die is.  Look at the placement of the cut-outs…really fantastic and easy to use!  I love the time that is put into each of these sets.  It always makes me so proud when I can support Newton’s Nook Designs and their hard work!

This daily double is a real win and I know you will all be as in love with the sets as I am.  And now for a chance for free stamps!

Would you like to win the “Newtons Loves Boxes” or “Newton’s Donut” Stamp Set?

Each set will be given away to ONE lucky winner!

Newton’s Nook Designs May Release – Papa Bear plus Freshly Made Sketches

Newton’s Nook Designs May Release – Papa Bear plus Freshly Made Sketches published on 28 Comments on Newton’s Nook Designs May Release – Papa Bear plus Freshly Made Sketches

Welcome to day 3 of the May Release from Newton’s Nook Designs.  Being Wednesday, it is also Freshly Made Sketches day so I have used that inspiration to show you the new Papa Bear stamp set.

Happy Father's Day by Jen Timko | Papa Bear Stamp Set and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Copic ColoringI just think this Winston set could not be more perfect for Father’s Day.  I love that you can add additional little bears as needed too.  I thought it would be fun to color on kraft paper using my Copic markers for this one.  I love how it turned out!  You see, I have a little blonde one and a bigger brown headed one so I colored the “kids” to match that idea.  The boys thought it was a fun idea and since this will be from them, yay!  I kept all the coloring tone on tone except for the heart and then added some red framing panels to pull that color out a bit.  the corrugated kraft adds a nice bit of texture along with the twine.  I tried hard to keep this dad-like with no frills or extra “stuff”.Our sketch today is perfect for showing off image sets (like this one) and I can’t wait to see what you all do with it this week.  Linda Callahan, she of great humor and even greater talent, is our sketch hostess….it is going to be a fun week!

Now you know the deal by now!  Time for a chance to win!

Newton’s Nook Designs May Release – Peony Blooms

Newton’s Nook Designs May Release – Peony Blooms published on 31 Comments on Newton’s Nook Designs May Release – Peony Blooms

Welcome to day 2 of the May Release from Newton’s Nook Designs.  Today we get to share another floral set and I’m thrilled to introduce Peony Blooms.  And do I ever love peonies!!

Hello by Jen Timko | Peony Blooms Stamp Set and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Framework Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Zig Clean Color MarkersI was totally inspired by my own peonies that are blooming right now.  These flowers are so special that I decided to keep the rest of the card pretty simple.  I stamped the image onto Bristol Smooth paper and colored using Zig Clean Color Markers.  A few shades of each color was all I needed.

Hello by Jen Timko | Peony Blooms Stamp Set and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Framework Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Zig Clean Color MarkersAfter coloring the flowers, I cut them out with the coordinating die.  Then I cut a frame from the Framework Dies (shown yesterday).  This scalloped frame is really wonderful, don’t you think?  I added a sentiment from the stamp set (LOVE this style of script) and then popped the frame and the flowers up on foam tape.  I added a few colored pearls that I thought were pretty with the image.  Mostly, I didn’t want to do anything to take away from the beautiful art of these flowers!!

Peonies May '18 | Jen TimkoAnd speaking of flowers, here are my gorgeous peonies from over the weekend.  Yep, the timing on this stamp set could not be better.  Now let’s go see what the rest of the team created!  Now on to everyone’s favorite part of release week.  A chance to win!!

Sending Hugs for Layton’s Legacy

Sending Hugs for Layton’s Legacy published on 2 Comments on Sending Hugs for Layton’s Legacy

I have an extra card to share with you today in support of Layton’s Legacy.  I’m sure many of you saw the amazing work being done to launch this card drive and fundraiser yesterday and I’m up on the Newton’s Nook Designs Blog today with my card made for the card drive.

This drive is the dream of Lea Lawson as a way to honor her sweet little boy Layton.  Please read the story about this tiny warrior and his amazing parents.  While he was in the NICU getting some of the world’s finest care, Lea and her husband found themselves in emotional anguish and exhausted.  At one point, someone gave them a Starbucks gift card so they could walk across the street from the hospital for a small break.  Lea speaks of that moment bringing tears to her since for a small moment it felt like someone was taking care of her and her husband.

This story is heartbreaking and yet heartwarming at the same time.  Because to honor Layton’s second birthday, she is choosing to bring good to other parents at the University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital.  She is doing a card drive and a fundraiser to buy more Starbucks cards so that other families in the same situation can feel like people are looking out for them and remembering them.  You can find out how to donate HERE and know that your donation may even make you the winner of some amazing prizes.  Yes, in all of this, she has sponsors that are sharing generously to help encourage generous giving.  This crafting community is truly a blessing!!One of the sponsors is Newton’s Nook Designs.  I created my card for today using the mood board for the Layton’s Legacy Hop and will be sending it to Lea as a way to deliver one of her gift cards.  I ask that you consider doing the same.  Think about how special a handmade card would be for any of these families and we have the power to bring a smile and love to someone who could really use it.Sending Hugs by Jen Timko | Cottage Garden Stamps and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Sending Hugs Stamp Set by Newton's Nook DesignsI love the color choices Lea gave us and the wonderful pictures provide so much inspiration.  Using the little animals, I immediately thought of Cottage Garden and stamped the owl in a pretty teal color.  Then I chose to add some yellow flowers for a pop of color.  The rest of the card is based on the chevron curtains and the gray room palette.

I hope you will join Lea and help her pay it forward with her event.  If you do make a card, make sure to link it up HERE.

Supplies (some affiliate links included):

Stamp: Cottage Garden (Newton’s Nook Designs), Sending Hugs (Newton’s Nook Designs); Ink:  Smokey Slate (SU), Lawn Fawn Candy Store Cubes – Peacock, Fresh Lemon (Altenew); Paper:  Thick Whisper White (SU), Ombré Chevrons Paper Pad (Lil’ Inker Designs), Smokey Slate (SU); Accessories:  Big Shot, Cottage Garden Dies (Newton’s Nook Designs), Misti, Dimensionals (SU), Basic Gray Baker’s Twine (SU), Stitched Shapes Dies (SU), Frames and Flags Dies (Newton’s Nook Designs)

Newton’s Nook Designs April Release – Little Lilies and April Showers

Newton’s Nook Designs April Release – Little Lilies and April Showers published on 27 Comments on Newton’s Nook Designs April Release – Little Lilies and April Showers

Welcome to the last day of the April Release from Newton’s Nook Designs.  This has been an amazing month and we are finishing off with style!!  Two, yes two, more stamp sets to show you today.  Woohoo!!  Both of these are just what you need to bring a little spring sunshine into your craft room!

Just Because by Jen Timko | Little Lilies Stamp Set and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Stitched Circle Scallop Frames by MFT StampsFirst up is Little Lilies.  I love these sweet little flowers so much and literally ran right down to stamp with it when it arrived on my doorstep.  I colored the flower with my Zig Clean Color Markers and then cut it out with the coordinating dies.

Just Because by Jen Timko | Little Lilies Stamp Set and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Stitched Circle Scallop Frames by MFT StampsI added just a little touch of light gray and green on the ends of the flowers to give a little dimension to the white flowers.  Onto a base of Bristol Smooth paper, I swirled on a little bit of Distress Ink and sprinkled it with water.  I am a big fan of a “just because” card since I can use them for so many things so I chose it for my sentiment.  The flower went perfectly with this little scalloped circle frame so I added that and then the flower on top.  I dug through and found a few sequins to finish the card.

April Showers by Jen Timko | April Showers Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs, Wood Textures Card Stock by Stampin' UpThe second set for today is called April Showers.  I have to tell you, I am SERIOUSLY hoping this sentiment is true!!  I am done with winter weather and really ready for some flowers and butterflies!  I used a yellow embossing powder on vellum for the sentiment and then cut it out with a banner die.  I pulled out my trusty sewing machine (see, mom, I still know how to use it!!) and stitched the banner onto some Wood Textures paper.April Showers by Jen Timko | April Showers Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs, Wood Textures Card Stock by Stampin' UpIt is a little hard to see in the big picture so I’m giving you a close up of the little beads that I attached to the centers of the flowers and onto the banner.  I used the Multi-Medium Matte Glue for those.  There are additional images that are super cute that go with the sentiment and I’m sure the DT has some great examples with those.

I hope that you have enjoyed all of my cards this week.  I very much enjoy hearing from you in the comments and your kind words always bring a smile.  Thanks for letting me be a part of your day!  Now for your chance to win!!
