Newton’s Nook Design February Release – Beautiful Spring

Newton’s Nook Design February Release – Beautiful Spring published on 34 Comments on Newton’s Nook Design February Release – Beautiful Spring

I’m back with Day 2 of February Release Week with Newton’s Nook Designs!  Today we are changing directions a bit with a beautiful swirls addition called Beautiful Spring.  As with all the sets in this collection, the images lend themselves to so many coloring variations and elegant, unique projects.Egg-stra Special Wishes by Jen Timko | Beautiful Spring Stamp Set and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Copic Coloring #newtonsnookThese beautiful images just begged to be colored with happy spring colors so out came the Copics (colors listed below) and I started just playing with the variety of eggs.  I confess that I got completely distracted and colored all the designs before I got back on track for putting this together.  I love how easily the die set cuts these out!!  I created a watercolor layer behind the eggs to help them pop and then thought this fun sentiment was just the one for the card.  With all the fantastic choices in this set, you are going to really enjoy all the ways to color.  Just go ahead and stamp them all at once and have fun!  And you know you need to have this so take advantage of this great opportunity…

Newton’s Nook Designs February Release – Newton’s Pot of Gold

Newton’s Nook Designs February Release – Newton’s Pot of Gold published on 33 Comments on Newton’s Nook Designs February Release – Newton’s Pot of Gold

Are you ready for another week of amazing releases from Newton’s Nook Designs???  Just say yes because you are going to LOVE what we have to show this week!  First up Newton himself is making an appearance and he seems to have the luck of the Irish!  Newton’s Pot of Gold is being featured along with the Land Borders die set.

Newton Finds the Gold by Jen Timko | Newton's Pot of Gold Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs, Land Borders Dies #newtonsnookThis sweet little stamp set is perfect for your St. Patrick’s Day fun but I love that the sentiments will be ones you can turn to again and again.  I started by coloring my image with Copic Markers (colors listed below) and while I was coloring, I had some inspiration.  How about using sequins as gold?!  Yes, they are totally perfect with the scale of the image and I could not even be more excited about how this turned out.  So how did I get the sequins on there?  It was actually easier than I thought it would be.  I put a ‘blob’ (yep, official crafting term) of Ranger Multi Medium Matte Glue on a scrap of paper and then using a toothpick end, applied the glue where I wanted it to be.  Then just added the sequin on top.  I put down one layer in the placement of the gold on the stamp image and once dry, added some more on top.  This glue dries pretty quickly and most importantly, it dries with a matte finish.

I needed just the right layer for this fun image to go on, so I created a little interest using the Land Borders Die. I cut a piece of Green Apple Card Stock (SSS) with the border die, then laid it on some white card stock and cut again with a stitched rectangle.  The sentiment is really one that I’m happy to add to my repertoire (being a hoarder collector of sentiments).  Now here is the best part….

Newton’s Nook Sweet Treats Blog Hop

Newton’s Nook Sweet Treats Blog Hop published on 38 Comments on Newton’s Nook Sweet Treats Blog Hop

I have such a fun, well, treat to share with you today!  Newton’s Nook Designs is having its annual Sweet Treats Blog Hop to share fun packaging ideas just in time for Valentine’s Day.  You are going to have a great time hopping through and seeing all the projects!

Love & Chocolate Treat Bag by Jen Timko | Love & Chocolate Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs, Copic Coloring
I knew immediately that I just had to use this great set from the January Release called Love & Chocolate.  The sweet little candies and goodies are such fun to color.  During release week, I played with the other items but the little chocolate covered strawberries still needed some love.  What better time than to add them to this project?!  I had fun making one kind of a dark chocolate and one more of a milk chocolate.  So many ways to enjoy coloring them!  The sentiment pretty much sums it up, don’t you think?!  Yeah…me too!  Stamped it and colored the little hearts and then cut it out with a Stitched Circle die to create a tag and just popped the strawberries up on foam tape.  This fun bag was left over from a kit last year.  As I went through my drawer of bags and boxes, this practically jumped out and I knew it would be just right for the tag!  All I had left was to add a little bit of black baker’s twine and a cute clip.  Easy to fill with some treats and fun to duplicate.  Can you guess what some elementary teachers will be getting this year?  *smile*

Newton’s Nook Designs January Release – Love & Chocolate

Newton’s Nook Designs January Release – Love & Chocolate published on 46 Comments on Newton’s Nook Designs January Release – Love & Chocolate

Welcome back for Day 2 of January Release Week at Newton’s Nook Designs.  Today we have a set that all of you with a sweet tooth are sure to love.  And even if you don’t love candy, I know you will have a great time coloring these little treats from the darling set called Love & Chocolate!  You can see more information over at the Newton’s Nook Designs blog!

You Make Life Sweeter Card by Jen Timko | Love & Chocolate Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnookNow I will warn you…do not even think about starting to work with this set on an empty stomach.  I can tell you that the more I colored, the more I wanted chocolate!  Although in fairness, I generally will be happy to have chocolate when I’m stamping (or any time)!  I had such fun deciding what ‘flavors’ to make each little treat.  A dark chocolate, a little milk chocolate, some white chocolate thrown in for good measure and then that lovely macaron!  I have a list at the end of my supply list with the specific Copic Markers that I used.  After getting all the treats colored it was quick work to cut out the images with the coordinating Love & Chocolate Dies.  All I had to do was stack them on the little platter for presentation.  I picked a sentiment from the set and stamped onto the DSP.  In a nod to bakeries that have pretty doilies for their goodies, I added one under the platter and tied on some baker’s twine.
