Newton’s Nook Designs Holiday Release – Snow Globe Scenes and Shaker Dies

Newton’s Nook Designs Holiday Release – Snow Globe Scenes and Shaker Dies published on 32 Comments on Newton’s Nook Designs Holiday Release – Snow Globe Scenes and Shaker Dies

Welcome to day 2 of the Holiday Release from Newton’s Nook Designs.  After a spectacular start to this week, I’m back today with another must-have set of products.  Yes indeed, a snow globe!!  Oh, the possibilities!

Santa Snow Globe by Jen Timko | Snow Globe Scenes Stamp Set and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Snow Globe Shaker Dies by Newton's Nook DesignsWhat is it about a shaker card that makes everyone happy?  No one can resist them!  And when the shaker is a snow globe?  It is sure to be a holiday hit!  As usual, the hardest part of my card was narrowing down which images to use.  Because I love them all!  I settled on the little houses and Santa because well, it is Santa!!  I loved the idea of using silver, navy and white to create an adorable winter scene for my snow globe.  And it is super fun to do.  I find it easier to show you in a video so I created a tutorial for you.

Make sure you take note of the foam and acetate sheet packs that will be available on Friday.  These are a great deal and you’ll want them on hand for all kinds of projects.

I said yesterday how much I love sentiment sets…just take a look at how perfectly Snow Globe Scenes coordinates with Sentiment of the Season from yesterday.  When font styles coordinate for the insides and outsides of a card, that makes like so easy for the holidays!

I hope you are having fun so far with this release!  And it is only day 2.  So many pretty products!!  Of course, the post isn’t complete without a chance to win!

Newton’s Nook Designs August Release – Once Upon a Princess

Newton’s Nook Designs August Release – Once Upon a Princess published on 18 Comments on Newton’s Nook Designs August Release – Once Upon a Princess

Welcome to day 2 of the August release from Newton’s Nook Designs.  If you enjoyed the magic of yesterday’s reveal, you are sure to love today’s stamp set called Once Upon a Princess.  And what a beautiful princess she is!

If The Crown Fits by Jen Timko | Once Upon a Princess Stamp and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Copic ColoringI rarely work in so much pink but, you know, sometimes you just have to go all in!  I colored our little beauty using shades of pink and purple to create a dress worthy of her highness.  Then I played around with castle colors to make one any of us would love to have.  I seem to have an obsession with shaker cards lately and this pack of pink sequins and beads was the perfect filler for my super girly card.  I have the perfect recipient and mind and she LOVES princesses.  And this just happens to look a little like her.  Isn’t it awesome when you find a stamp set that you know is sure to bring a smile?!!  And you can get the set free for yourself!

Newton’s Nook Designs Plus Studio Katia – Summer Fun

Newton’s Nook Designs Plus Studio Katia – Summer Fun published on 43 Comments on Newton’s Nook Designs Plus Studio Katia – Summer Fun

Welcome to the Summer Fun Collaboration Blog hop with Newton’s Nook Designs and Studio Katia! Both teams are celebrating the start of summer with fun and colorful cards using stamps from Newton’s Nook Designs and dies and embellishments from Studio Katia. There’s prizes too! Both companies have a prize to give away too so make sure you read all the way to the bottom of this post to see how to win!Did Someone Say Cake Card by Jen Timko | Newton Loves Cake Stamp and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Sequins from Studio Katia, Dotted Shaker Tag Die by Studio KatiaMy first thought when I saw the summer theme was a birthday card.  Maybe because it is because my oldest son is a “beginning of summer” baby, haha!  But something about these bright happy sequins from Studio Katia and this adorable tag die screamed birthday to me.  After consulting with my youngest son (this card was from him for his brother), we chose the Newton Loves Cake stamp to color for the card.  I love this little Newton and I colored his cupcake with Copics to match the sequins.  Adorable!!  This tag die makes creating a shaker super easy too.Cake Tag Closeup by Jen Timko | Newton Loves Cake Stamp and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Dotted Shaker Tag by Studio KatiaWith the black card stock, it was hard to see the tag details in my full picture so I wanted to show you a closeup too.  I created my own mix of sequins with the Sunny Side Up, Enchanted Sea and Lipstick Red Sequins.  I have to admit that Newton looks pretty proud of his giant cupcake, don’t you think?!  Again, little brother thought the striped paper behind the tag made the card look like a “boy card” so I trusted his judgement.  I tied on some red ribbon and black baker’s twine to finish the tag.  The verdict???  As soon as the birthday boy picked up the envelope, he knew it was a shaker card.  And apparently even 14 year old boys who are very, very cool cannot resist shaking a shaker card!  *smile*  Now you need to get on with the hop but first…

We are giving away TWO prizes – one prize pack from Studio Katia and one $25 store credit from Newton’s Nook Designs!

Freshly Made Sketches #289

Freshly Made Sketches #289 published on 8 Comments on Freshly Made Sketches #289

FMS289 by Jen Timko | Lovely Blooms Stamps and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Studio Katia SequinsOh, look at the amazing sketch we have for you today over at Freshly Made Sketches!  My friend Linda Callahan, queen of clever, is our hostess this week and her sketch will get you moving right to your craft room!

As soon as I saw the sketch, I thought shaker card.  So that is just what I made!  I did a quick watercolor using Tim Holtz Distress Inks on these fun flowers from the Lovely Blooms Stamp set (Newton’s Nook Designs) and cut them out with coordinating dies.  I chose colors to match my awesome sequins from Studio Katia and to make my coordination easy.  I cut a frame with Stitched Shapes Thinlits (SU).  The sentiment from Happy Little Thoughts (NND) was stamped onto the window sheet (also cut with the square die) and then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.  Kind of wish I had black powder for a sharper look but I think this works with the loose watercolor look from the flowers.  I rooted around in my DSP stack until I found a print that worked in the background.  I kind of love these stripes!

I have been stamping madly and have lots coming up for you in the next couple of weeks.  Until next time, I hope you have an amazing day!  Thanks for stopping in!

Supplies:

Stamps:  Lovely Blooms (Newton’s Nook Designs), Happy Little Thoughts (Newton’s Nook Designs); Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black, Tim Holtz Distress Inks; Paper:  Fabriano Watercolor, Typeset Specialty DSP (SU Retired); Accessories:  Big Shot, Stitched Shapes Thinlits, Window Sheet, Sequins by Studio Katia and 28 Lilac Lane, Foam Adhesive Strips

Newton’s Nook Designs May Release – Winston’s Tee Time

Newton’s Nook Designs May Release – Winston’s Tee Time published on 28 Comments on Newton’s Nook Designs May Release – Winston’s Tee Time

I hope you have had a wonderful start to your week!  I’m here to make sure a great week is assured with the May release from Newton’s Nook Designs.  There is lots to love with this one and it all starts with an adorable version of our favorite bear, Winston!

Just Fore You by Jen Timko | Winston's Tee Time Stamp and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Copic Coloring, newtonsnook, Golf Card, Shaker CardDo you have golfers in your life?  If so, you need this set called Winston’s Tee Time.  As soon as possible!  Our friend Winston is having some fun at the course and he comes with some awesome sentiments too.  I just love a great pun and this set has them for sure.

I thought a shaker card would be perfect with this set and I’m super happy with the result!  I created the frame with some stitched rectangle dies and added texture  with a wood grain embossing folder.  Then I created the golf green for the inside of the shaker with the Land Borders Die.  I stamped the images with Momento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic Markers.  The little flag was attached inside the shaker area and then I put in some sequins that match Winston’s outfit.  My oldest son is convinced that Winston is going to miss his shot but I am pretty sure he is just reading a complicated green.  And clearly there are some hazards to deal with, haha!  While this set is great for Father’s Day, it is also just perfect for any golf fan!  And I just bet you know the best part….you can get the set for free!
