You Make Life Sweeter

You Make Life Sweeter published on 4 Comments on You Make Life Sweeter

Did you know that yesterday was National Cocoa Day??  I mean seriously, who can NOT be excited about a day devoted to cocoa?!  So of course I needed to have some hot cocoa and today I get to share a card that is all about sharing it with those you love.  I created this for my December post over at the Newton’s Nook Designs Blog.

You Make Life Sweeter by Jen Timko | Cup of Cocoa Stamp Set and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Love & Chocolate Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs, Softly Falling Embossing Folder by Stampin' Up, Stitched Shapes Dies by Stampin' Up

The little cups from the Cup of Cocoa stamp set are just so cute and I love all the variations.  I chose two that seemed to work well together and colored them to match.  Then I chose the little heart from the same set.  All of them were colored with Copic markers and then cut using the coordinating dies.  While a number of the sentiments from Cup of Cocoa would work nicely here, I thought this one from Love & Chocolate was just perfect for my sweet little pairing.  I stamped it in Versafine Onyx Black and then cut out the oval with stitched dies.  The cups and heart are popped up using Dimensionals and Mini Dimensionals (those minis are really the BEST).  I added a little extra texture in the background with my Softly Falling embossing folder (and it helps keep it wintery).  Because hey, there is still time to enter the 2017 Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!

Newton’s Nook Designs November Release – Llama Delivery and Newton’s Candy Cane

Newton’s Nook Designs November Release – Llama Delivery and Newton’s Candy Cane published on 36 Comments on Newton’s Nook Designs November Release – Llama Delivery and Newton’s Candy Cane

Welcome to the last day of the November Release from Newton’s Nook Designs.  This release week is a shortened a bit due to the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday but we get to share two new sets again today!  And….there is a Black Friday sale on release day.  Yay for sales!

Special Delivery by Jen Timko | Llama Delivery Stamp Set and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Zig Clean Color Pens, FMS314I’m starting off today’s reveal with a card that doubles as my Freshly Made Sketches card this week.  The  queen of perfect layering, Narelle Farrugia, created this fun sketch that worked perfectly with this super new Llama Delivery stamp set.  While this set can work great for the holidays, I chose to make it into a birthday card.  I have some family members with December birthdays and it is always nice to have a card with nary a holiday color in sight.  Using my Zig Clean Color Markers, I colored these images and then cut them out with the coordinating dies.  I love, love, love this llama!!  The sentiment from the set fit well with the sketch too.

Sweet Holiday Tag by Jen Timko | Newton's Candy Cane Stamp Set and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Fancy Edges Tag Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Be Merry DSP by Stampin' Up, Copic ColoringI can hardly even contain my excitement over the last set for our reveals this month.  As always, we have Newton.  And this holiday version is simply adorable.  I chose the striped paper with splatters for my layering tag and then colored the image to match.  This little guy just steals my heart!!  I even added some splatters to his hat and scarf to mimic the paper.  What a great time I had coloring with my Copics on him  The new Fancy Edges Tag Dies are great for quick take and I love how you can choose different ways to add interest with the accessories.  It is simply a must have for holiday packaging!

This week of reveals seems to have flown by but that means you are really close to being ready to shop.  As per normal, these will all be available on Friday with the advantage of a Black Friday sale to make shopping even more fun.  And now on to one last chance to win!!

Newton’s Nook Designs November Release – Cup of Cocoa and Frozen Fellowship

Newton’s Nook Designs November Release – Cup of Cocoa and Frozen Fellowship published on 56 Comments on Newton’s Nook Designs November Release – Cup of Cocoa and Frozen Fellowship

Welcome to day 1 of the November Release from Newton’s Nook Designs.  We have such fun products to show you this week and we are starting today with lots to share.  Two stamp sets and two new stand alone die sets….wow!

Everything Nice by Jen Timko | Cup of Cocoa Stamp Set and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Snowfall Stencil by Newton's Nook Designs, Copic Coloring, Be Merry DSP by Stampin' UpOur first set I’m showing you is called Cup of Cocoa! ** Warning:  Triggers uncontrollable tendencies to run to the kitchen and make some cocoa immediately!! ** I used the Color Theory paper from Stampin’ Up and the Snowfall Stencil from Newton’ Nook as an embossing folder.  This is a great way to stretch your stencils and add fun details to a background.  I colored this adorable cup from the set to match the ombré paper.  Fun, right?!  The new Frames & Flags Dies create quick banners that layer wonderfully and all I had to do was add a sentiment from the stamp set.

Snow-one else by Jen Timko | Frozen Fellowship Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs, Frames & Flags Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Zig Clean Color PensFor my second card, I get to show you Frozen Fellowship.  This is perfect for holiday cards but it continues to work into the rest of winter too!  The minute I saw this set, I knew exactly what I wanted to do.  I loved the idea of choosing one of the snowmen to stand out as unique and the used this fabulous sentiment.  Using my Zig Clean Color Markers, I colored all the snowmen in shade of gray.  Then chose this funny little guy at the bottom for full color (I confess that choosing which snowman to have color was the hard part, haha).  I used the new Frames & Flags Dies again here and you can see how awesome they are to create layers.

Yes, indeed, this is another amazing day 1.  And I did tell you there are two new stand alone dies.  The other one (which I will use later this week) is called the Fancy Edges Tag Die set and you are going to love it!  You can see all the features in the graphic below.  Now on to everyone’s favorite part of release week.  A chance to win!!

Celebrate Autumn

Celebrate Autumn published on 5 Comments on Celebrate Autumn

Celebrate Autumn by Jen Timko | Autumn Leaves Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Happy Little Thoughts Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs, Jute Twine by Stampin' UpAs we get closer to the holiday season, you will find that schedules get adjusted for design teams and releases.  For me, that means that I get to share another project on the Newton’s Nook Designs Blog! I know I have said it a number of times but my inspiration right now is all around me here in Virginia.  In fact I spent about an hour yesterday raking up the inspiration, haha!

The leaves are a bit more fun when they are cut from paper.  I kept this one pretty clean but I love the simplicity of fall wreaths and the natural elements.  I mimicked the idea of a vine wreath with some leaves by using some jute twine to create a simple one on the card.  I glued down the ends using Mulit Medium Matte Glue and then attached one of the pieces on the opposite side to make sure the wreath kept its shape.

Celebrate Close Up by Jen Timko | Autumn Leaves Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Happy Little Thoughts Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs, Jute Twine by Stampin' UpYou could totally create your own watercolor designs for the leaves but I cheated a bit.  I seem to have a never-ending stash of designer papers and I pulled out the retired Color Me Autumn DSP and just popped these little leaves out with the Autumn Leaves Dies.  I cut a few extra with some Early Espresso card stock too and used the centers from the leaves of those to add a few “twigs” among the leaves.  Yet again, I leaned on the awesome  Happy Little Thoughts stamp set for the sentiment since I thought this might make a nice fall birthday card.  I realized that I don’t have enough that are masculine and I think this could work well.  I added a little bow with some more jute twine to finish the wreath.  To attach the leaves, I used Mini Dimensionals (cut in half).  These little gems are a time saver for sure.  The bow is attached with the Multi Medium Matte again (in case any leaks out, it becomes invisible when it dries matte).

I’m also linking this in to the Addicted to CAS Challenge #123 : Leaves.  CAS and Leaves….two of my favorite things!!   I hope you enjoy this autumn extra today!  Make sure to stop by the Newton’s Nook Designs blog for daily inspiration!!  See you tomorrow with the latest from Freshly Made Sketches.

Stamp: Happy Little Thoughts (Newton’s Nook Designs); Ink:  Early Espresso (SU); Paper:  Naturals Ivory Card Stock (SU retired), Color Me Autumn DSP (Stampin’ Up); Accessories:  Big Shot, Autumn Leaves Dies (Newton’s Nook Designs), Jute Twine (SU – Holiday Catalog 2017), Mini Dimensionals, Multi Medium Matte Glue

Enjoy Autumn

Enjoy Autumn published on 4 Comments on Enjoy Autumn

Enjoy Autumn by Jen Timko | Autumn Newtons Stamp Set and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Happy Little Thoughts Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs, Winsor and Newton Paints, WatercolorToday is my day to share a project on the Newton’s Nook Designs Blog and I’m still in love with all things fall!  Apparently my little friend Newton is too and I pulled out Autumn Newton to color today.

Fall in Virginia is my favorite season and we are finally really entering the season.  About time!  It seemed late to arrive this year.  I love apples and pumpkins and oh do I love the leaves!  I used some of the local fall things as inspiration for my colors (See the spotty gourd?  My friend had a picture of one like that so I had to include it!)  The leaves next to the card are from my yard and I used those colors as a start for my leaf coloring.

Enjoy Autumn Close Up by Jen Timko | Autumn Newton Stamp Set and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Happy Little Thoughts Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs, Winsor and Newton Paints, WatercolorI thought that using my Winsor and Newton watercolor paints would be the perfect way to color this.  Something about how the paints layers that ink doesn’t makes it great for blending colors and layering texture.  I used Fabriano Extra White Watercolor Paper….one of my favorites.  While the stamp set has wonderful sentiments, I leaned on one of my go-to phrases from the Happy Little Thoughts stamp set.  I thought it fit this sweet image wonderfully!  I cut a the image layer shape with the Snow Globe Shaker Dies for a fun and different look.

I’m also linking this in to the Inspired by All the Little Things challenge….more gorgeous fall loveliness.  I hope you enjoy this autumn extra today!  Make sure to stop by the Newton’s Nook Designs blog for daily inspiration!!  See you tomorrow with the latest from Freshly Made Sketches.

Stamp: Autumn Newton (Newton’s Nook Designs), Happy Little Thoughts (Newton’s Nook Designs); Ink:  Verafine Onyx Black; Paper:  Fabriano Extra White Watercolor, Wood Textures DSP (Stampin’ Up); Accessories:  Big Shot, Autumn Newton Dies (Newton’s Nook Designs), Snow Globe Shaker Dies (Newton’s Nook Designs), Stitched Rectangles Dies (SSS), Misti, Silver Paint Brush, Winsor and Newton Paints, Daniel Smith Paints, Burlap Ribbon (SU ret)

Naughty or Mice by Jen Timko | Naughty or Mice Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs, Zig Clean Color Pens, Wink of StellaThe first set I get to show you today is called Naughty or Mice.  Isn’t it cute??!!  I just love this little fellow holding a present and hoping you’ll say “Mice”.  I kept this one nice and clean with just a few bits of sparkle.  I colored him using my Zig Clean Color Pens and then added some Wink of Stella.

Naughty or Mice Closeup by Jen Timko | Naughty or Mice Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs, Wink of StellaThis is such a sweet little set and another one that is great for coloring.  And if you love coloring, then the second set I have today is going to make you really happy!  Yes, our friend Newton is back and he gets to be Santa Paws Newton.

I Believe by Jen Timko | Santa Paws Newton by Newton's Nook Designs, Copic ColoringSince I have been using a traditional color scheme so much this week, I stuck with that as I colors this sweet little Newton.  I think the little mouse is a true believer, don’t you?!

Newton’s Nook Designs Holiday Release – Stylish Stockings and Reindeer Roll Call

Newton’s Nook Designs Holiday Release – Stylish Stockings and Reindeer Roll Call published on 34 Comments on Newton’s Nook Designs Holiday Release – Stylish Stockings and Reindeer Roll Call

Happy day 3 of the Holiday Release from Newton’s Nook Designs.  And yes, it is also Freshly Made Sketches day.  So I combined two of my favorite things into one post!  This holiday release from Newton’s Nook is going to continue to amazing you as, yet again, we have TWO stamps to share with you.

FMS309 by Jen Timko | Stylish Stockings Stamp Set and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Be Merry DSP by Stampin' UpI am going to start with the Stylish Stockings Stamp Set and the coordinating dies since I used it with the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week.  I love the sweet designs on these little stockings and the adorable stitched details for them.  I stamped them using Altenew’s Ruby Red ink and just look at how those tiny details show perfectly.  All I had to do was stamp the sentiment on a stitched circle and add some festive patterned paper.  Stamps like this make your holiday cards easy to reproduce and such fun to make!

Reindeer Chalk Board by Jen Timko | Reindeer Roll Call Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs, Corrugated Paper, Chalk BoardNext up is Reindeer Roll Call.  What an awesome idea this stamp is!!  As soon as I saw it, I thought chalk board card so I just had to give it a try.  I stamped using Versamark ink on a textured black card stock and then heat embossed with WOW Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder.  I added the little snowflakes and one of the reindeer from the stamp set to accent the names and embossed them too.  I cut the panel out with a cross-stitched rectangle die and added a few rhinestones that I colored with a red Copic marker.  To give it that chalk board look, I tapped on a little bit of white craft ink with a sponge.  Then, I cut out some Corrugated Kraft card stock using a cross-stitched rectangle and added this great 7/8″ Striped Ribbon from Stampin’ Up as an accent.  You’ll notice a theme with these card today….makable!  Because when it comes to holiday cards, I generally like the make a few of each style!

I just know you are going to love the projects from the entire Newton’s Nook team today and don’t forget to take a look at all the inspiration at Freshly Made Sketches too!  Of course, the post isn’t complete without a chance to win!

Newton’s Nook Designs Holiday Release – Snow Globe Scenes and Shaker Dies

Newton’s Nook Designs Holiday Release – Snow Globe Scenes and Shaker Dies published on 32 Comments on Newton’s Nook Designs Holiday Release – Snow Globe Scenes and Shaker Dies

Welcome to day 2 of the Holiday Release from Newton’s Nook Designs.  After a spectacular start to this week, I’m back today with another must-have set of products.  Yes indeed, a snow globe!!  Oh, the possibilities!

Santa Snow Globe by Jen Timko | Snow Globe Scenes Stamp Set and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Snow Globe Shaker Dies by Newton's Nook DesignsWhat is it about a shaker card that makes everyone happy?  No one can resist them!  And when the shaker is a snow globe?  It is sure to be a holiday hit!  As usual, the hardest part of my card was narrowing down which images to use.  Because I love them all!  I settled on the little houses and Santa because well, it is Santa!!  I loved the idea of using silver, navy and white to create an adorable winter scene for my snow globe.  And it is super fun to do.  I find it easier to show you in a video so I created a tutorial for you.

 

Direct link to the video:  Snow Globe Scenes Shaker Card

Make sure you take note of the foam and acetate sheet packs that will be available on Friday.  These are a great deal and you’ll want them on hand for all kinds of projects.

I said yesterday how much I love sentiment sets…just take a look at how perfectly Snow Globe Scenes coordinates with Sentiment of the Season from yesterday.  When font styles coordinate for the insides and outsides of a card, that makes like so easy for the holidays!

I hope you are having fun so far with this release!  And it is only day 2.  So many pretty products!!  Of course, the post isn’t complete without a chance to win!
