Newton’s Nook Designs June Release – Newton Rides West

Newton’s Nook Designs June Release – Newton Rides West published on 30 Comments on Newton’s Nook Designs June Release – Newton Rides West

Today is last day of the June release from Newton’s Nook Designs.  I have to say, this one has been quite amazing (by the already high standards of previous releases).  I’m simply in awe of the creativity of design and the ability of these sets to appeal to so many.  I know, I know…I’m gushing…but really….based on the lovely comments I have received this week (for which I’m incredibly grateful), you agree with me!  So now, onto the last set.  Our week would not be complete without our friend Newton, now would it?!

Howdy by Jen Timko | Newton Rides West Stamp Set and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Copic ColoringOur little buddy gets to go on an adventure and the team gets to have some fun with this western theme!  The hardest part of the card??  Choosing which image to color first!  There are so many great choices…and take note of the little mustache.  I mean, seriously!!  So much fun (my oldest told me that all the Newtons need a mustache from now on, haha).  I pulled out my Copics and got to work coloring.  Something about him popping out of the boot just cracks me up.  After I had him colored, I wanted to continue the western theme with the elements of the card.  I used this brand new designer paper from Stampin’ Up called Wood Textures.  The whole pack of 6″x6″ paper is full of wood prints in different colors.  I added a bit of burlap ribbon on the edge and some twine under the sentiment panel.  The wood paper is simply perfect for showing off Newton!  I know you will love all the other designers’ work so off you go with the hop.  But before you go….make sure to be eligible to win the sets from this week by commenting on the team’s pages.

Today is Day 3 of the release from Newton’s Nook Designs.  I’m super excited that we have not one but TWO sets to share (and matching dies!).  Yeah….this is awesome!!!FMS292 by Jen Timko | Cuppa Cactus Stamp and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Chameleon Pens ColoringI’m starting with a card that I created for the release but also for the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week.  Our hostess is the lovely and amazing Cécile Ribon and she created this fun and clever sketch!  I loved using it to show off the Cuppa Cactus stamp set.

I colored these adorable images using my Chameleon Pens.  These are such fun to color!!!  I sponged some stitched circles with Distress Ink in the coordinating colors and they are perfect to show off these fun image, don’t you think?!  I stamped the “caution” sentiment to follow the sketch and then put the actual caution inside the card.  *smile*Super cute, right??  All of you coffee fans will totally need this one.  Not sure how to take it but my boys commented about this being perfect for me when I showed them the card.  Hmmmm…..

Stuck on You by Jen Timko | Cultivated Cacti Stamp and Dies by Newton's Nook DesignsThis second card used the Cultivated Cacti set and I had such fun with it.  I love that you can stamp quickly with solid image stamps and get such a cute little scene!  I did a mix and match of inks and colors to created my scene.  And oh, this sentiment (and the others in the set)….such fun little puns!  While I think these are hard cards to make, having a stamp that says exactly what you need it to is invaluable.  And, you can get the set for free!

Newton’s Nook Designs June Release – Furr-Ever Friends

Newton’s Nook Designs June Release – Furr-Ever Friends published on 42 Comments on Newton’s Nook Designs June Release – Furr-Ever Friends

Today is Day 2 of the release from Newton’s Nook Designs.  Our reveal today is a set that anyone owned by a pet will appreciate.Forever In Our Hearts by Jen Timko | Furr-Ever Friends by Newton's Nook DesignsThe set is called Furr-Ever Friends and it is one that made me happy and nostalgic all at the same time.  The sentiments in this set are really simply perfect to reflect how so many of us feel about our dear furry family members.

After debating how to show this set, I opted for simple.  Because when someone loses one of their dear friends, I feel like simply is best.  I created a watercolor wash with my Winsor and Newton paints and then added the black silhouette of the kitty.  This reminds me of my old friend Pito who was a part of my life for 19-1/2 years (I’ll confess his silhouette was a little “stouter”, lol).  He was a solid black kitty and one of the most special friends…I was his human and he will always be a part of me.  So I chose this sentiment which says exactly how I still feel about him.  While I think these are hard cards to make, having a stamp that says exactly what you need it to is invaluable.  And, you can get the set for free!

Newton’s Nook Designs June Release – Terrific Terriers

Newton’s Nook Designs June Release – Terrific Terriers published on 34 Comments on Newton’s Nook Designs June Release – Terrific Terriers

It is that wonderful time of the month when we get a new release from Newton’s Nook Designs.  This week’s release is absolutely full of fun and we get to start this week with some sweet terriers.

Pawsome by Jen Timko | Terrific Terriers Stamp and Dies by Newton's Nook DesignsThe set is called Terrific Terriers to be exact and I know so many people with dogs that will be thrilled to see their friends in a stamp.  Isn’t his face just adorable??

I started with a sketch from CASe this Sketch and used the paw print from this set and one from another upcoming set (consider this a sneak peek) to create the vertical element for the sketch.  This is super easy with a Misti to make sure the alignment is perfect.  Then I colored my terrier with Zig gray markers.  My neighbor has the sweetest little boy who has some terrier in him (and maybe some other breeds too) so Murray was my inspiration for this card.  And oh, that sentiment.  I just love this one to go with all my Newtons!  As you hop along, just remember that you can get the set for free!

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

Amazing Friend published on 4 Comments on Amazing Friend

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!

Cake Day by Jen Timko | Newton Loves Cake Stamp and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Zig Clean Color Markers, Watercolor, Inky Paws #47A quick card for today’s Inky Paws #47 Challenge.  I loved the colors in this challenge so I just had to play along!  I thought this little Newton Loves Cake set was perfect for the challenge and I had not colored this particular image yet so win, win!

I stamped Newton on some Tim Holtz Watercolor Paper and colored with Zig Clean Color Markers to match the challenge colors.  Fun and simple to do!  Then, using the coordinating dies I cut out the image.  I added this awesome sentiment (because it really is ALL about the cake) plus some baker’s twine and sequins.  I always need birthday cards on hand and this one is quick to duplicate…always a plus!

I hope you will find a moment to join the challenge.  You have two weeks and this color palette is sure to inspire.  Thanks so much for stopping in today.  See you soon!

The week is flying by and today is the last day of release week for  Newton’s Nook Designs.  Your favorite kitty is back again today and this time Newton gets a scooter!

Wheelie Great by Jen Timko | Newton Scoots By Stamps and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Sky Borders Dies (Newton's Nook Designs), Zig Clean Color Markers, Watercolor CardThis little kitty called out to be a girl to me so I gave her a hot pink scooter and some great coordinating accessories.  Don’t you love her scarf?  The sentiments that go with this image are just fantastic for many different occasions.  Love that!

I colored our little friend using Zig Clean Color Markers and created a background with Distress Ink.  I pulled some of the colors from the image and found coordinating paper from my stash that matched perfectly.  YAY!  The scallop border is created with the Sky Borders Dies and it is just the right layer for adding my sentiment.  The clouds in the set would have been fun on the background circle but somehow one ending up as the “exhaust” instead.  Oh so cute!  You can get you chance to win this free but make sure you work fast!

Newton’s Nook Designs May Release – Newton Dreams of Italy published on 38 Comments on Newton’s Nook Designs May Release – Newton Dreams of Italy

Did you enjoy day 1 of  the May release from Newton’s Nook Designs?  Well, I’m sure you will be just as thrilled with the reveal for Day 2!  This is my second post of the day so if you are looking for Freshly Made Sketches, just roll to the next post.

Ciao Bella by Jen Timko | Newton Dreams of Italy Stamp and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Distress Ink, Zig Clean Color MarkersI’m going to tell you right now that I have only just started playing with this new set called Newton Dreams of Italy.  Just look at the adorable images and so many ways to have fun!  But the very first thing that came to mind was use gondola image and create Newton’s very own little river.

I looked up some information on gondolas and found out that they are traditionally black.  I found some fun images that showed that the insides have different colors but saw quite a number of versions that were red.  I went with that and then made sure that Newton himself was all decked out in the appropriate gear.  Isn’t he just too cute?!  I created the river using the Land Border Dies on different angles.  Then I simply cut it out again using a rectangle.  I sponged on Distress Ink to create the water and then on a background panel, I added a little more color to help the water pop.  I looked up pictures of the actual Rialto bridge as an inspiration for the shading here (just a little light blue).  Finally, I added a little “Ciao bella” (hello beautiful) that you can just imagine coming from our dapper friend here.  Hard to see on the black base but I added some striped embossing too.  You are going to have such fun with the images in this set.  I just know the team has knocked this one out of the park too.  Of course you can get the set for free….don’t you love that?!

Newton’s Nook Designs May Release – Winston’s Tee Time published on 28 Comments on Newton’s Nook Designs May Release – Winston’s Tee Time

I hope you have had a wonderful start to your week!  I’m here to make sure a great week is assured with the May release from Newton’s Nook Designs.  There is lots to love with this one and it all starts with an adorable version of our favorite bear, Winston!

Just Fore You by Jen Timko | Winston's Tee Time Stamp and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Copic Coloring, newtonsnook, Golf Card, Shaker CardDo you have golfers in your life?  If so, you need this set called Winston’s Tee Time.  As soon as possible!  Our friend Winston is having some fun at the course and he comes with some awesome sentiments too.  I just love a great pun and this set has them for sure.

I thought a shaker card would be perfect with this set and I’m super happy with the result!  I created the frame with some stitched rectangle dies and added texture  with a wood grain embossing folder.  Then I created the golf green for the inside of the shaker with the Land Borders Die.  I stamped the images with Momento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic Markers.  The little flag was attached inside the shaker area and then I put in some sequins that match Winston’s outfit.  My oldest son is convinced that Winston is going to miss his shot but I am pretty sure he is just reading a complicated green.  And clearly there are some hazards to deal with, haha!  While this set is great for Father’s Day, it is also just perfect for any golf fan!  And I just bet you know the best part….you can get the set for free!
