Sweet Hearts by Jen Timko | Woodland Duos Stamp Set and Darling Hearts Dies by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnookToday I’m sharing a fun bonus card using the Woodland Duos Stamp Set by Newton’s Nook Designs.  When this set released in January, I have to admit that I first focused on the darling critters.  As I looked at the set more, though, I realized that these little heart images were ones that I needed to use as soon as possible!

I stamped the hearts using three colors (Daffodil Delight, Bermuda Bay and Melon Mambo from SU).  I used my Misti to make sure they were inked really well so you can see the fabulous detail of each heart.  Then using the little heart die from the coordinating Darling Hearts Dies I cut them out.  The hardest part of the card is lining up the hearts.  But I believe in smarter not harder!  You want to see how I did it to make it simple?  Yep, I thought so!I started by using my grid mat to line them up and get the spacing right.Then, I laid some Press and Seal Wrap onto the hearts so I could move them and keep their positioning.Finally, I added foam tape to the backs of the hearts and attached them to my white card stock.  Just carefully pull off the Press and Seal and the alignment is perfect.  And you look like a genius!  I added some retired SU washi tape along the sides of my card base.  I thought the pattern was a nice match to the patterns in the hearts.  The sentiment comes from another January release set, Love & Chocolate.  I added a little baker’s twine to the top to finish the card.

While this could certainly be a Valentine, I actually created this card as a birthday card for my youngest son who just turned 11.  He is such a great kid and he makes all of our lives a bit sweeter.  This is the absolute perfect sentiment for him!  Hope you have enjoyed my card and my tips.  Can’t wait to hear what you think!

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.
