Newton’s Nook Designs September Release – Newton’s Costume Party

Newton’s Nook Designs September Release – Newton’s Costume Party published on 28 Comments on Newton’s Nook Designs September Release – Newton’s Costume Party

Welcome to the last day of the September release from Newton’s Nook Designs.  I know you have been waiting for it so here it is…NEWTON!  In costumes!  Oh my goodness, this set could not be even a little cuter!

Trick or Treat by Jen Timko | Newton's Costume Party Stamp and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Copic ColoringSeriously…if you love Halloween, you will just fall in love with this set.  An adorable Newton with costumes of all kinds.  The hardest part for today’s post was choosing which one to start with!  I thought that the little bee was hilarious (and I always think little kids dressed like bees are too sweet for words).  Jen and Jeff have made this set perfect for quick cards too.  All you have to do is stamp and cut out the images.  Easy layering for fast and fun cards!  I did just that.  I stamped the bee suit and the wings, plus the kitty and cut them out with the matching dies.  I did some quick Copic coloring and then dug through my stash of patterned papers to find some that matched.  I thought this yellow striped paper was perfect behind my little kitty bee.  Oh, and take a closer look a the coloring.

Trick or Treat Close Up by Jen Timko | Newton's Costume Party Stamp and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Copic Coloring, Wink of StellaI added a little bit of Wink of Stella to the wings.  Because every bee needs shimmery wings, don’t you think?  Now I get to play with the rest of the costumes.  You are sure to want to do the same!  And now for the part you always love!!

Newton’s Nook Designs September Release AND Freshly Made Sketches

Newton’s Nook Designs September Release AND Freshly Made Sketches published on 24 Comments on Newton’s Nook Designs September Release AND Freshly Made Sketches

Welcome to day 3 of the September release from Newton’s Nook Designs.  Hold on because I have A LOT to share with you today.  First of all, Newton’s Nook Designs has two (yes TWO) sets to share today.  And then, well, it is Wednesday so it is also Freshly Made Sketches day.  I did a little multi-tasking so that I could keep everything to one post.  Are you ready??

FMS304 by Jen Timko | Beautiful Bones Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs, Black Glitter Embossing Powder by WOW!, Sugar SkullFirst up is this marvelous new set called Beautiful Bones.  These images are simply awesome and if you love sugar skulls, this set is going to blow you away.  I also used the fun sketch from Freshly Made Sketches designed by the sweet and talented Amy O’Neill.  This sketch was a natural to combine with the NND set!!  I lined up the images using my Misti (makes is super simple to make sure they are straight).  Once I knew the placement, I put some Bristol paper under the images (uninked) and figured out where I wanted the watercoloring to be.  I used my Zig Clean Color Markers and added the bright colors…super fast and so striking with the set.  Next I stamped in Versafine Onyx Black.  I added some Wow brand Black Glitter Embossing Power and heat embossed.  You should see how cool the glitter looks in person!  I pulled a sentiment from Beautiful Plumage and stamped/embossed it too.  I added some extra splatters and then some rhinestones (colored with a Sharpie) for a little more sparkle.  The perfect card to send out to some family members who live in Mexico and have fun with Day of the Dead celebrations.No Bones About It by Jen Timko | Spooky Skeletons Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs, Chibitronics, Chibi Card, Xray card, Studio Katia Dotted Shaker TagFor the next set called Spooky Skeletons, I created a card to look like an X-ray.  Now, I would love to say that the X-ray was all my idea but sadly, no.  My oldest son saw the stamp set when I first got it and told me “that would make a cool X-ray…can you do that?”  Why yes I can!!  I used Chibitronics and two white lights from the kit to backlight this image.  I stamped the kitty skeleton on vellum and put that layer underneath another vellum piece surrounded by the cute tag.  I helps conceal the Chibi tape and still let’s you see the lights easily.  Want to see it lit up??  Of course you do!  My trusty assistant (my oldest) helped me by pushing the ribbon on the tag.  For some reason the lights seem way brighter in the video but it has a distinctly X-ray look in person.  He LOVED it so mission accomplished!

I hope you enjoy all of today’s products.  Remember that there are matching dies with the stamps too!  And on to someone getting to win!

Newton’s Nook Designs September Release – Creepy Cameos

Newton’s Nook Designs September Release – Creepy Cameos published on 14 Comments on Newton’s Nook Designs September Release – Creepy Cameos

Welcome to day 2 of the September release from Newton’s Nook Designs.  Are you ready for a little bit of Halloween??  I thought that might be a yes!  You are in luck because today we are featuring a new stamp set called Creepy Cameos.  It has its own coordinating die set but there is also an additional frame die that is awesome called, simply, Cameo Die.

So don’t fall over from shock.  Do you see all that distressing??  Did you know I still knew how to do this, haha?!  Well, admittedly, I wasn’t sure either.  Let’s face it, clean is kind of where I go these days but somehow my first vision with this set was all about vintage and shabby.  So out came Distress Ink and my old distressing tool (pretty impressed that I even found it) and off I went.  I took a reinker and dyed some vanilla ribbon the purple color, then added in some black ink too.  My fingers “may” have been purple for the rest of the day.  The real fun came with the frame.  Choosing which image to feature was a tough one.  But this “bride of Frankenstein” was too awesome to ignore!  I cut two of the frames with the Cameo Die from an old Halloween designer paper and stacked them so that I could curl one up on the edges for dimension.  I sponged around the image (cut with the set’s coordinating dies) and put her up on some Dimensionals.  Just imagine all the things you can do with these frames and fun cameos!  I added the sentiment from the set onto a DSP sheet that I inked and distressed.  I did laugh that even in my distressing, this has a clean vibe to it.  Ah well, it was fun to get creative with a style a little outside my box.  I encourage you to do the same when you can!!  And now for the fun part

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!!
