Newton’s Nook Designs 4 Year Celebration Blog Hop

Newton’s Nook Designs 4 Year Celebration Blog Hop published on 45 Comments on Newton’s Nook Designs 4 Year Celebration Blog Hop

First of all, today is the day that the 4 Year Celebration release goes live over at Newton’s Nook Designs.  To continue the fun, we are having a blog hop and I’m so thrilled to be a part of it.

Reach for the Stars by Jen Timko | Cosmic Newton Stamp and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Starfield Stencil by Newton's Nook Designs, Tim Holtz Distress Ink, Perfect Pearls, Land Border Dies by Newton's Nook DesignsI told you yesterday that my favorite set from this release was Cosmic Newton (but seriously, choosing a favorite is like choosing a favorite ice cream…I love them all!).  I used the new Stampin’ Up Embossing paste with the Starfield stencil on watercolor paper to start off my background.  Next I added Chipped Sapphire Distress ink by painting it on with a brush.  I got some of the light and dark coloring with that but wanted a little more dark.  So I pulled out the trusty acetate and smooshed some more ink on, spritzed with water and applied to the panel.  After it dried a bit, I spritzed on a Perfect Pearls mixture (in a spritzer with the powder and some water) to get a shine on the panel.  And finally, I splattered on some Smooch Ink to add some extra “stars).  I added a bit more of the Perfect Pearls onto the stars to help them pop.  For the trees behind Newton, I used the Land Borders Dies.  I was thrilled when it looked like the tops of trees in the shadows.  Finally, I colored Newton and his telescope with some more Distress Ink.  What a fun card to make!!  This set just lends itself to fabulous backgrounds and tons of creativity!

I’m sure you notice how much fun I have had with the stencils this week.  Well, there is a great deal that you are sure to love!So pretty much you can get the Pawprints stencil free on the order you were already going to make!  WIN!!  And speaking of winning…there is even MORE to win this week.

Newton’s Nook Designs 4 Year Celebration – Day 4

Newton’s Nook Designs 4 Year Celebration – Day 4 published on 29 Comments on Newton’s Nook Designs 4 Year Celebration – Day 4

Today is the last day of reveals for the 4 year celebration with Newton’s Nook Designs.  But fear not…we are back tomorrow with a bonus hop to complete the celebration!!  But first, I get to share with you my very favorite set from this release!  It is called Cosmic Newton.  Oh my goodness is it fantastic!

Out of this world by Jen Timko | Cosmic Newton Stamp and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Starfield Stencil by Newton's Nook Designs, Watercolor, Winsor and Newton Watercolors, Perfect PearlsFor this card, I thought it would be fun to play with watercolor paints.  So I started with the background.  On a piece of watercolor paper, I painted on some blues and even a little purple to create a sky that would be right for the new Starfield stencil.  After letting my panel dry, I used the stencil as an embossing plate but running it through my Big Shot with an Impressions Pad and a Silicone Rubber Pad.  It gives a subtle embossing look that I was really happy with.  You can see me more of the detail here:Closeup by Jen Timko | Cosmic Newton Stamp and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Starfield Stencil by Newton's Nook Designs

But then I returned to using the stencil as just a stencil.  I kept it in place and the sponged on some white craft ink on the stars toward the top of the card.  Then I brushed a bit of Perfect Pearls on top of that to add some shimmer.  I have to confess that I’m pretty in love with the whole effect!!  For my friend Newton, I thought he needed a really special rocket to stand out against the sky, so I chose purple for his ship.  It is hard to tell here but I added some more Perfect Pearls on the window around Newton and also on the banner.

I hope you have enjoyed all of the release projects this week!  The team has certainly provided a ton of inspiration!!  And this release has been simply spectacular!  And now…your chance to win one more time!

Newton’s Nook Designs 4 Year Celebration – Day 2

Newton’s Nook Designs 4 Year Celebration – Day 2 published on 37 Comments on Newton’s Nook Designs 4 Year Celebration – Day 2

Are you ready for another day of celebration with Newton’s Nook Designs?  Yesterday was quite the reveal, don’t you think?!  Well, today you get to see two more stamp sets!  It keeps getting better!

Can I Stow Away by Jen Timko | Stowaway Newton Stamps and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Copic Coloring, Pawprints Stencil by Newton's Nook DesignsThe first stamp I am going to show you is called Stowaway Newton.  Now I don’t know about you, but I know a certain cat (a calico who shall remain nameless, haha) who likes to pack herself in my bag.  And when I come home from trips, if I keep the bag closed she simply sleeps on top of it.  So when I saw this set, I fell in love.  I created the luggage I wish I could carry around airports by coloring with Copic Markers.  Behind the image, I used the new Pawprints Stencil and some Distress Ink.  This stencil is going to become a go-to with all my Newton stamps!  The sweet little sentiments in the set are fabulous and I stamped this one with Versafine Onyx Black.  I added a little bit of washi tape along the edge to finish this bright, happy card.

Cheers by Jen Timko | Cocktail Mixer Stamp by Newton's Nook Designs, Tim Holtz Distress InksApparently bright and happy was on my mind for today’s release cards because I chose a similar palette for this great set called Cocktail Mixer.  I played around with my Distress Inks to created this pair of tropical drinks.  Don’t they look tasty?!  And what better sentiment than the one from the coordinating die set!  I cut the sentiment from Bristol Smooth paper and then colored it using the same inks as the drinks.  Kind of a tropical rainbow!  Then I did the same rainbow effect for the side border.  This is such an easy technique but it creates such a wow effect.

Newton’s Nook Designs 4 Year Celebration – Day 1

Newton’s Nook Designs 4 Year Celebration – Day 1 published on 40 Comments on Newton’s Nook Designs 4 Year Celebration – Day 1

I am so thrilled to begin this amazing week celebrating 4 years of inspiration from Newton’s Nook Designs.  What it takes to make the leap of faith to start your own company always amazes me but wow am I glad Newton’s Nook Designs is a part of this amazing industry!  I might be a little biased but any time art can bring such smiles and joy, it is a wonderful thing and something to celebrate.  And celebrate is what we are doing this week!  My post today is longer than normal because we are revealing an incredible set of products.  Two (yep TWO) stamp sets, four (oh yeah…FOUR) stencils and a new border dies set.  And that is only today’s reveal.  Hang on my friends!  This is going to be fun!

Meet Me At The Lake by Jen Timko | Winston's Lake House Stamps and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Tim Holtz Distress Inks, Watercolor

I’m going to start you off with a fun stamp set called Winston’s Lake House.  Using Distress Ink in Broken China, I played with the “smoosh” technique for watercoloring.  I applied ink to an acetate sheet and then spritzed it with water.  Then I laid the acetate down onto Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper to get the cool water effect.  I love how it turned out!!  The way the color pools was perfect to created the dimension I wanted for the lake.  After letting it dry, I used the new Sea Borders Dies (combined with a Stitched Rectangles Die) to created the waves for our little friends.  All I had to do was offset the border die to get this look.  Fun, right??  I did the same thing with Peeled Paint ink for the ground and used the Land Borders Dies instead.  Yep…all the dies coordinate perfectly.  Then I stamped the images in Versafine Onyx Black and colored with more Distress Ink.  That little cottage is one I want to visit for sure!  And not sure what it is about the little dragonfly but I just could not resist adding it on.  The corrugated paper seemed like the perfect background for this scene to show off all the details in these new images and dies.Advice from the Lake by Jen Timko | Lake Advice Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs, Wood Textures DSP by Stampin' UpSo now on to the second stamp set called Lake Advice.  I had a ton of ideas on how to use this with the Winston set but I thought maybe it was better just to focus on this sentiment.  It is really a great one!  I stamped it onto vellum using Early Espresso ink (SU) and then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder to make it really stand out.  Then I took a piece of the Wood Textures DSP from SU (already a fabulous wooden look) and cut it up to make it look like planks on a palette.  I used a darker color of the same DSP for the base.

And now we get to talk about these stencils.  You should have seen the response when the DT heard about them.  And then again when we saw them!!!  Oh, they are fun and so perfect for the release.  Want to see them???  Of course you do!  I will be showing you more with them as the week goes on too.  And then check out what you could win this week!

Lovely Yellow Blooms

Lovely Yellow Blooms by Jen Timko | Lovely Blooms Stamp and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Chameleon Pens, Color Theory DSP by Stampin' UpToday is my day to share a project on the Newton’s Nook Designs Blog and I just had to continue with making pretty summer cards with this Lovely Blooms stamp set.  This flower set really is awesome for coloring!

Is there such thing as a yellow hydrangea??  I’m not sure but I created one in any case.  Using my Chameleon pens, I colored the flowers and the leaves to coordinate with this new Color Theory DSP from Stampin’ Up.  I LOVE this paper!  It is the perfect background for almost any image but it really shows off this flower.  The sentiment is a go-to for me lately and it comes from the Happy Little Thoughts stamp set (NND).  I colored some Basic Pearls with the Olive Chameleon pen and added those fora little more detail.  The whole image panel is on a Crushed Curry card base.

For those of you in the US, I hope you have a wonderful and safe 4th of July!!  So glad you stopped in today.  See you tomorrow with the latest from Freshly Made Sketches!

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 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!
