Newton’s Nook Designs March Release – Birthday Essentials

Newton’s Nook Designs March Release – Birthday Essentials published on 28 Comments on Newton’s Nook Designs March Release – Birthday Essentials

Welcome back for the last day of the March Release from Newton’s Nook Designs.  For our final reveal I have what you are sure to see as a “work horse” stamp set…a wonderful sentiment set called Birthday Essentials.

Celebrate by Jen Timko | Birthday Essentials Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs, Magic Stamp by Clear Snap, Distress Oxide Ink by Tim HoltzSo I have a confession to make.  My name is Jennifer and I’m a sentiment hoarder.  I love sentiment sets.  I “collect” sentiment sets.  Having just the right ones for inside and outside the card is simply a quest so I hold on to them even as I let images go now and then.  So when a set that is all about birthdays comes along, you can bet that I’m doing a happy dance.  Another truth (because, hey it is just among friends)…I never seem to have enough masculine cards.  Perhaps it is because Kitty Kate and I are outnumbered.  Perhaps it is my obsession with cute images and all flowers.  But somehow, when it comes time to reach for a card for man, I don’t have the right one.  So I committed to making one (and I’ll be making a few more just like it).  I felt like I need a cool background so I used this fun Magic Stamp by Clearsnap.  It allows you to make your own background and just stamp.  I was playing with it on my trip to Kansas and the incredible Jen Shults (yes, I did just name drop) suggested I press it into some concrete on the sidewalk.  And I got this texture.  Cool!!  I inked it up with Distress Oxide Ink and just stamped onto watercolor paper, then spritzed with a little water.

Newton’s Nook Designs September Release – Shades of Autumn and Falling Leaves

Newton’s Nook Designs September Release – Shades of Autumn and Falling Leaves published on 29 Comments on Newton’s Nook Designs September Release – Shades of Autumn and Falling Leaves

Welcome to day 1 of the September release from Newton’s Nook Designs.  Fall is definitely in the air and Newton’s Nook is ready!  We are starting off with a beautiful set called Shades of Autumn and a brand new stencil, Falling Leaves.  Both are fabulous!

Give Thanks by Jen Timko | Shades of Autumn Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs, Cross Stitched Dies, Distress Oxide InkThe detail on these images is really special and I wanted to make sure I showed the stamp detail as much as possible.  I thought that using the Distress Oxide Ink would do just that.  The ink is a bit thicker than some of the dye inks and grabs onto the stamp differently.  And then you have the added benefit of how it moves with water.  So I stamped the leaves and then spritzed with some water to get the ink run just a little.  Then I added some additional splatters with the ink and water mixed together.  The sentiment from the the set is such a nice size and fit perfectly with the leaves.  I cut out the panel with Cross-Stitched Rectangles Dies and the mounted on a base of Audrey Blue card stock cut with the same.  There are more fun leaves in this set and I can’t wait to play some more with them.  Of course, there are coordinating dies that makes your layering super easy.  And this stencil is GORGEOUS…perfect for all of your fall projects!  And now for the part you always love!!
