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 3 (and FMS)

Newton’s Nook Designs 4 Year Celebration – Day 3 (and FMS) published on 41 Comments on Newton’s Nook Designs 4 Year Celebration – Day 3 (and FMS)

Back with day 3 of the 4 year celebration with Newton’s Nook Designs.  Today we are showing off one set that I just think is adorable.  It is called Toucan Party…such fun!  I combined the reveal with the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches (where I am the sketch hostess this week).

Toucan Do It by Jen Timko | Toucan Party Stamp Set and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Tim Holtz Distress Ink, Tropical Leaves Stencil by Newton's Nook DesignsThe first thing I did for this card was pull out the awesome new Tropical Leaves stencil and create this background with Distress Ink (Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn).  Just look at what a great foundation it gives a card.  Can I tell you how happy I am for these new stencils??  And it seems like all of you are loving them too!  Then I stamped the toucan and some leaves and flowers using Versafine Onyx Black ink and colored using more Distress Ink.  Want to see my “muse” for this one?

Just look at his amazing coloring!!!  Nature certainly does it best so I just mimicked his colors.  And I LOVE them!!  Check out his little blue feet!!!  Yeah…I know.  Who can resist that?!  Clearly not me!  I colored some of the leaves as a background for him and then the flower as a balance element.  I used the small panel of the sketch to show off part of the sentiment (and the puns in this one are super fun).  Here is the sketch if you want to join in this week…I’d be thrilled to see you!

Newton’s Nook Designs 4 Year Celebration – Day 2 published on 38 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!

Freshly Made Sketches #295

Freshly Made Sketches #295 published on 7 Comments on Freshly Made Sketches #295

FMS295 by Jen Timko | Quirky Critters Stamp Set by Stampin' Up, Copic ColoringSo remember in my post last Friday (for Fancy Friday) where I talked about some of my favorite things from the new Stampin’ Up catalog??  Well, yesterday I showed you a bit of why I love the Color Theory paper and today I’ve got the narwhal!!  I love him!!  The incredibly talented Narelle Farrugia is our sketch hostess this week at Freshly Made Sketches and I thought her sketch this week gave me the perfect chance to show you this fellow.

He comes from the stamp set called Quirky Critters and actually has a sentiment attached to him.  I could not seem to make the sentiment work for the sketch but I really wanted to use him.  So….I just cut him out by hand and added another sentiment from Newton’s Nook instead (Beautiful Plumage).  I think this one is super fun and perfect for this guy.  I stamped the narwhal using Momento Tuxedo Black ink and colored him with Copic Markers.  He seemed to fit better on a little square than a circle so I hope Narelle doesn’t mind the switch.  For the horizontal element I tried something new.  A few weeks ago, my mom was here to visit.  She is an amazing quilter and believes in supporting local quilt shops wherever she travels.  Hmmm….that may explain where I get that from! As we were looking around (and the shop here in Warrenton is called Kelly Ann’s Quilting…a gorgeous shop!), I was falling in love with all the prints and patterns, wishing they were all paper.  Then I spied this tiny rickrack trim (in multiple colors no less!).  Needless to say, I grabbed it right up.  Isn’t it fun???  Ok, well, I’m completely off track for my post but seriously, shops like that are so inspirational!  Since this rickrack matched the narwhal perfectly, it was clearly meant to be.  I match the bling elements of the sketch, I added some Sparkling Clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.  They are clear but have a bit of gray tint to them so I love them on cards with gray.

Well, I hope you love this little guy as much as I do.  Not sure why, but he really does crack me up.  I showed the card to my husband and he said it was just like the narwhal from the movie Elf.  So on that note….”Bye Buddy”! Thanks for stopping in today!  Hope your week is great!

Supplies:

Stamp:  Quirky Critters (SU), Beautiful Plumage (NND); Paper:  Smoky Slate (SU), Thick Whisper White (SU); Ink:  Momento Tuxedo Black, Copic Markers; Accessories: Big Shot, Stitched Shapes Dies (SU), Stitched Rectangles Dies (SSS), Sparkling Clear Sequins (PPP), Rickrack

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!

Stamp: Lovely Blooms (Newton’s Nook Designs); Ink:  Momento Tuxedo Black, Chameleon Pens (Y03 Warm Sunset, OL3 Olive Green); Paper:  Thick Whisper White (SU), Color Theory DSP (SU), Crushed Curry; Accessories:  Big Shot, Lovely Blooms Dies (Newton’s Nook Designs), Misti, Basic Pearls

Fancy Friday – A Fancy Top 5

Fancy Friday – A Fancy Top 5 published on 2 Comments on Fancy Friday – A Fancy Top 5

Welcome to this month’s Fancy Friday Blog Hop!  Our team is a group of stampers who love to make beautiful things.  Sometimes they are clean, sometimes they are layered but the one thing I can say for sure is that our projects will be fancy!  If you hopped over from Paula Dobson, welcome to the next stop.  For June we are sharing our personal “Top 5” lists from the new 2017-18 Stampin’ Up Catalog.  Choosing 5…that was the hard part for sure!

Fancy Friday - Hello by Jen Timko | Floral Statements Stamp Set by Stampin' Up, Watercolor, Zig Clean Color MarkersI managed to combine 3 of my top choices onto this one card to show you why I love them so much.  This new Floral Statements stamp set was an absolute must buy for me and I ordered it immediately.  I’m so glad I did!  Isn’t it gorgeous??!!  I stamped it in black onto watercolor paper and then colored it.  Super fast watercoloring!  But the result is fabulous!  I put it onto a base of the new Lemon Lime Twist card stock and I love the pop of color.  And as an accent to the pink, I added the new sequins.  These are the Iridescent color from the Metallics Sequins Assortment.  Oh my, these are a wow!

To round out my choices, I just have to discuss the new Color Theory DSP.  This paper pack will be a go-to for so many of your cards!  The colors and the unique uses of the shades is perfect for so many projects.  And last (but not least)….the narwhal set (otherwise known as Quirky Critters).  I have no reasonable explanation of why I am obsessed with this set but I am.  Totally fun, totally adorable…and just a little quirky!

So here it is in list form:

  1. Floral Statements Stamp Set
  2. Lemon Lime Twist (in EVERYTHING)…and the other In Colors are fabulous too!
  3. Sequins – Metallics, Iridescent, all of them!
  4. Color Theory DSP
  5. Quirky Critters Stamp Set

I hope you like my take on the top 5.  Now on to the rest of the hop!  These talented stampers are going to inspire you for sure and I cannot wait to see what they enable me to buy share as their must haves!  Next up is the lovely Shannon Lane.

Freshly Made Sketches #294

Freshly Made Sketches #294 published on 14 Comments on Freshly Made Sketches #294

FMS294 by Jen Timko | Coffee Break DSP by Stampin' Up, Funny Coffee Stamp by Skipping Stones DesignsI’m sure you have already seen the gazillions of coffee cards across blog land this week and I could not resist adding one more!  It is the week for the 2017 Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and I just had to combine the coffee theme with this week’s new challenge from Freshly Made Sketches.  The lovely queen of color, Amy O’Neill, is our sketch designer this week and I love this classic look.

I started with the new Coffee Break DSP from Stampin’ Up and pretty much let the paper do all the work.  The French Press and the cup…straight from the paper (just fussy cut and off you go).  And check out that coffee bean paper!!!  I was in a huge hurry to create this but just could not let the hop and great sketch go by without playing along.  I only stamped this fun sentiment from Skipping Stones Designs and put the card together.  I added a few sequins from an old Paper Pumpkin set to give it a little bling and still keep it on the masculine side.  I thought the colors lent themselves to that and I always seem a little short on “man cards”.

So I have been stamping a ton with a lot to share in the upcoming weeks.  And also, flying lots and lots.  Summer is always the busy time for us airline folks!  I love having all the summer people on the planes.  There is a great energy and excitement for vacations.  I particularly love when the kids visit us in the front!!  So I apologize for some of my absences.  I am, however, super excited about the Fancy Friday hop we have coming up this week.  I hope you’ll join us.

For now, hop on over to Freshly Made Sketches and see all the amazing work from the design team this week.  You’ll be happy you did.  Have a great day!

Supplies:

Stamp:  Funny Coffee (Skipping Stones Designs); Paper:  Coffee Break DSP (SU), Thick Whisper White (SU), Old Olive; Ink:  Early Espresso; Accessories: Bronze Sequins (Paper Pumpkin by SU)

Freshly Made Sketches #293 published on 7 Comments on Freshly Made Sketches #293

FMS293 by Jen Timko | Color Theory DSP by Stampin' UpWhere did the week go??  Wow, it is already Wednesday!!  And what a sketch we have for you today. The amazing and oh so talented Karren Johnson is our sketch hostess this week at Freshly Made Sketches and she created a really clever one for us this week.

I opted to show off this gorgeous new DSP from Stampin’ Up called Color Theory.  There are tone on tone variations that are simply fabulous.  This one is an ombré effect that I just love.  I not only cut out the shaped panel with it but I used the bottom piece that I cut off (for size) for the die cut word.  I LOVE when paper does all the work for you!  This fun edge is cut using the Border Builders Dies from Lil’ Inker Designs.  The sentiment is a retired SU die.  Just a few sequins added for that extra dimension.  My husband needed a thank you and I think this is the perfect masculine card for him to send.  I struggle with that sometimes but I think this one is just right.

The team has such a variety of cards this week and that is always a great indicator of a fun gallery.  I cannot wait to see all that you create!  I hope you have a super rest of your week.  Thanks for stopping in!

Supplies:

Paper:  Color Theory DSP (SU), Thick Whisper White (SU); Accessories:  Big Shot, Border Builder Dies (Lil’ Inker Designs), Greetings Thinlits (SU retired), Sparkling Clear Sequins (Pretty Pink Posh)
