Newton’s Nook Designs June Release – Newton’s Kitchen

Newton’s Nook Designs June Release – Newton’s Kitchen published on 19 Comments on Newton’s Nook Designs June Release – Newton’s Kitchen

Welcome to the last of the June Release from Newton’s Nook Designs.  Our favorite feline is back to cap off the week and you are sure to love this adorable set.

All You Knead Is Love by Jen Timko | Newton's Kitchen Stamp Set and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Zig Clean Color MarkersIf you are a cat person, you probably had a “kneader” in your house,  I certainly do.  Little Kate is a chirpy purr kneader.  So I just had to use this sentiment.  I decided to color this one up to look like the real Newton.  I do love an orange kitty and the pictures of Newton are always so sweet.  I colored him using Zig Clean Color Markers and added the little white hat (because it is just so cute!!).  I pulled out a pack of designer paper and found this orange print that seemed perfect to go behind our kitty friend.

All the images in this new set are great…especially if you love to cook as well!   So you know what time it is…hop around to the whole DT and make sure leave comments for your chance to win.

Newton’s Nook Designs May Release – Peony Blooms

Newton’s Nook Designs May Release – Peony Blooms published on 31 Comments on Newton’s Nook Designs May Release – Peony Blooms

Welcome to day 2 of the May Release from Newton’s Nook Designs.  Today we get to share another floral set and I’m thrilled to introduce Peony Blooms.  And do I ever love peonies!!

Hello by Jen Timko | Peony Blooms Stamp Set and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Framework Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Zig Clean Color MarkersI was totally inspired by my own peonies that are blooming right now.  These flowers are so special that I decided to keep the rest of the card pretty simple.  I stamped the image onto Bristol Smooth paper and colored using Zig Clean Color Markers.  A few shades of each color was all I needed.

Hello by Jen Timko | Peony Blooms Stamp Set and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Framework Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Zig Clean Color MarkersAfter coloring the flowers, I cut them out with the coordinating die.  Then I cut a frame from the Framework Dies (shown yesterday).  This scalloped frame is really wonderful, don’t you think?  I added a sentiment from the stamp set (LOVE this style of script) and then popped the frame and the flowers up on foam tape.  I added a few colored pearls that I thought were pretty with the image.  Mostly, I didn’t want to do anything to take away from the beautiful art of these flowers!!

Peonies May '18 | Jen TimkoAnd speaking of flowers, here are my gorgeous peonies from over the weekend.  Yep, the timing on this stamp set could not be better.  Now let’s go see what the rest of the team created!  Now on to everyone’s favorite part of release week.  A chance to win!!

Newton’s Nook Designs April Release – Umbrella Pals

Newton’s Nook Designs April Release – Umbrella Pals published on 30 Comments on Newton’s Nook Designs April Release – Umbrella Pals

Welcome to day 3 of the April Release from Newton’s Nook Designs.  I hope you are having fun with the reveals so far.  Today, we have an absolutely darling set that is super clever and sure to bring a smile.  It is called Umbrella Pals.

Brighter Days by Jen Timko | Umbrella Pals Stamp Set and Dies by Newton's Nook DesignsSo all the umbrellas in the stamp set are little critters and it is such fun to use!!  I thought these two bears worked great together!  I colored them with my Zig Clean Color markers and then created the background with the markers too.  To do that, I scribbled some of the ink on a clear blog and spritzed with a bit of water, the put the block on my paper.  I did this a few times to get the layered look on the background.

Brighter Days by Jen Timko | Umbrella Pals Stamp Set and Dies by Newton's Nook DesignsI thought it would be fun to add a bit of sunshine under the umbrella with the yellow as a nod to the sentiment.  As an additional bit of brightness, I put the colored layer onto a yellow base so that the recipient gets that extra surprise of color when they open the card.  I thought a few clear drops would be appropriate for the gray section able the umbrellas.

I hope you enjoy today’s card and I know you will love the DT’s projects.  Now for your chance to win!!

Freshly Made Sketches #326

Freshly Made Sketches #326 published on 8 Comments on Freshly Made Sketches #326

FMS326 by Jen Timko | Dahlia XL by Power Poppy, Zig Clean Color PensHappy middle of the week to you!  I am the sketch hostess today over at Freshly Made Sketches and I hope I created a sketch that will be fun for everyone.

With that big panel, I thought it was the perfect time to pull out a big stamp.  Dahlia XL from Power Poppy to be exact.  I stamped the flower in Versafine Black and colored with my Zig markers.  I don’t think I made an actual color combination for a dahlia, but hey…artistic interpretation!  *smile*  I just wanted to make a bright and happy card and I think this does the job.  The sentiment is from the set too and works perfectly for the little panel on the sketch.  For the yellow strip, I used some washi tape and put it on a piece of white paper.  You get all the effect of the washi but it looks a bit more tailored.

I hope you enjoy the sketch and will consider joining us!  The design team has done amazing things with my sketch…I’m always in awe of the different looks all from the same sketch.  I’ll be back on Friday with a fun post for Newton’s Nook.  Until then, have a great day!

Supplies (affiliate links included):

Stamp: Dahlia XL (Power Poppy); Paper:  Strathmore Bristol Smooth, Audrey Blue (SSS); Ink: Versafine Onyx Black, Zig Clean Color Markers ; Accessories: Misti, Washi Tape (SU)

Newton’s Nook Designs February Release – Woof Pack

Newton’s Nook Designs February Release – Woof Pack published on 27 Comments on Newton’s Nook Designs February Release – Woof Pack

Well, it is the last day of the February Release from Newton’s Nook Designs.  It has been a great week and I’m super excited to share our final set, Woof Pack.

You had to know that Newton’s Nook would not leave out all you dog people out there.  After yesterday’s Company of Cats it is so awesome to have a companion set for dogs.  I thought it would be fun to make a few little “windows” for the dogs.  I stamped the big background a couple of times and then chose a few of the sweet faces to highlight (other than the German Shepard, I chose pretty randomly….no slights intended, lol…I have a soft spot for Shepards after having one for 12 years).  I colored using my Zig Clean Color Markers and then added some frames that were cut with stitched circle dies.  The Pawprints stencil was a wonderful “go with” product for the dogs and I added that with embossing paste on Fog Gray card stock.

I thought you might like to see a list of all the breeds that are in the stamp image.  Jennifer Jackson was kind enough to provide this and it was super helpful in my coloring.

Left to Right:
Top row: Bulldog, Chihuahua, Boxer, Jack Russell Terrier
Second row: Poodle, Dachshund, Beagle, Basset Hound
Third row: Cocker Spaniel, Yorkshire Terrier, Boston Terrier
Corgi squeezed in between the rows
Bottom row: German Shepherd, Saint Bernard, Pug, Labrador Retriever

This week has been wonderful and I’m always so humbled by the kind comments left for me.  Thank you all for your encouragement and kindness.  And now, one more chance to win!

Newton’s Nook Designs November Release – Cup of Cocoa and Frozen Fellowship

Newton’s Nook Designs November Release – Cup of Cocoa and Frozen Fellowship published on 56 Comments on Newton’s Nook Designs November Release – Cup of Cocoa and Frozen Fellowship

Welcome to day 1 of the November Release from Newton’s Nook Designs.  We have such fun products to show you this week and we are starting today with lots to share.  Two stamp sets and two new stand alone die sets….wow!

Everything Nice by Jen Timko | Cup of Cocoa Stamp Set and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Snowfall Stencil by Newton's Nook Designs, Copic Coloring, Be Merry DSP by Stampin' UpOur first set I’m showing you is called Cup of Cocoa! ** Warning:  Triggers uncontrollable tendencies to run to the kitchen and make some cocoa immediately!! ** I used the Color Theory paper from Stampin’ Up and the Snowfall Stencil from Newton’ Nook as an embossing folder.  This is a great way to stretch your stencils and add fun details to a background.  I colored this adorable cup from the set to match the ombré paper.  Fun, right?!  The new Frames & Flags Dies create quick banners that layer wonderfully and all I had to do was add a sentiment from the stamp set.

Snow-one else by Jen Timko | Frozen Fellowship Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs, Frames & Flags Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Zig Clean Color PensFor my second card, I get to show you Frozen Fellowship.  This is perfect for holiday cards but it continues to work into the rest of winter too!  The minute I saw this set, I knew exactly what I wanted to do.  I loved the idea of choosing one of the snowmen to stand out as unique and the used this fabulous sentiment.  Using my Zig Clean Color Markers, I colored all the snowmen in shade of gray.  Then chose this funny little guy at the bottom for full color (I confess that choosing which snowman to have color was the hard part, haha).  I used the new Frames & Flags Dies again here and you can see how awesome they are to create layers.

Yes, indeed, this is another amazing day 1.  And I did tell you there are two new stand alone dies.  The other one (which I will use later this week) is called the Fancy Edges Tag Die set and you are going to love it!  You can see all the features in the graphic below.  Now on to everyone’s favorite part of release week.  A chance to win!!

Freshly Made Sketches #311

Freshly Made Sketches #311 published on 4 Comments on Freshly Made Sketches #311

FMS311 by Jen Timko | Snow Much Fun Stamp Set by Stampin' Up, Be Merry DSP by Stampin' Up, Zig Clean Color PensSo you know when you are stuck for stamping mojo and you need to pull out an old favorite??  Yeah…that was me for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches card.  Not really sure why I struggled since this sketch is fabulous, but some days are like that.  The lovely Jennifer Brum gave us one that can be used in so many variations.  And oh, did I note a circle??  Jen is notoriously intimidated by circles so a big shout out for her crafty courage!  (Love ya’, Jen!!)

Do you remember this stamp set from Stampin’ Up?  It is called Snow Much Fun and I love the little snowmen in the set.  I chose this fellow and did some quick coloring with Zig Clean Color Pens.  I did hand draw in the line for his hill so that he wasn’t standing in space.  I was super happy to have some coloring time and then realized that my sentiment just wasn’t going to fit on a circle.  Sigh.  Well, I’m going with the “any shape” concept on the sketch and added it on a rectangle instead.  I chose a print from the Be Merry DSP (main catty, SU).

Tomorrow I get to be a part of a super fun month long event by Tracey McNeely, her 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2017.  See you then!

Supplies (affiliate links included):

Stamp:  Snow Much Fun (SU, Ret); Paper:  Fabriano Extra White Watercolor, Cherry Cobbler (SU), Be Merry DSP (SU); Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black, Zig Clean Color Pens; Accessories: Misti, Zig BrusH2O

Newton’s Nook Designs August Release – Autumn Newton

Newton’s Nook Designs August Release – Autumn Newton published on 28 Comments on Newton’s Nook Designs August Release – Autumn Newton

Welcome to the last of the August release from Newton’s Nook Designs.  I’m sure you have been waiting to see what Newton would be up to this month and we finally get to share!  He is getting ready for Fall!!  I knew I loved that kitty!

Pile of Fun by Jen Timko | Autumn Newton by Newton's Nook Designs, Zig Clean Color Markers, Fall Cat Card, Calico CatI have been getting a little push back from a certain calico I know that there have not been any Kate’s in my Newton release repertoire lately.  I tried to tell her that calico orange is difficult to match with other colors, especially in spring and summer palettes.  I was rewarded with a sprinkling of kitty glitter (cat fur) all over everything to prove the error of my ways.  Thankfully, “calico” matches fall perfectly so here she is.  Kate playing in the leaves!!  After stamping in Versafine Onyx Black ink, I colored the image on the Bristol paper using my Zig Clean Color Markers.  I used a couple of shades of each color to mimic the shading on the leaves we get in our yard every autumn.  To created the card, I used a sheet from my old This and That books from SU.  These were smash styled scrapbooks that have awesome prints.  In a recent crafty cleanup, I found one of the books and removed all the pages that were unused “just in case”.  I totally LOVE it as a layer here!!  I put some corrugated kraft paper underneath and added a little twine under Kate (Newton).  Now I’m all ready to start feeling a little of the crisp cool air of autumn in Virginia (my favorite season here!).  And you know the deal by now….you can win this set for free (it really is a great part of release week!).

Newton’s Nook Designs August Release – Believe in Unicorns

Newton’s Nook Designs August Release – Believe in Unicorns published on 25 Comments on Newton’s Nook Designs August Release – Believe in Unicorns

Welcome to day 1 of the August release from Newton’s Nook Designs.  You are going to have so much fun with this group of stamps.  I can hardly wait to share!  And we are starting off with unicorns!!  Yep really….unicorns!  I believe and you will too!!

I Believe In You by Jen Timko | Believe in Unicorns Stamp and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Zig Clean Color Markers, Land Borders Dies by Newton's Nook DesignsLook at these adorable images!!  They just beg for pretty, bright colors.  I stamped them onto Strathmore Bristol paper using Versafine Onyx Black ink and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.   I watercolored using Zig Clean Color Markers in “rainbow” colors.  It is such fun to play with how the colors blend and the unicorn is the perfect place to try out combinations.  Once colored, I cut the images out with the matching dies.  I also added some extra clouds from the Winston Takes Flight set.  Love how so many sets coordinate together.  I created a curved layer using the Land Borders Dies and then sponged on a little bit of Distress Ink to help the image pop a bit.  I used Melon Mambo card stock to frame the image panel.  A clean card that focuses on the bright and happy colors!  Such fun to create and I can’t wait to color these images some more!!  And here is the best part…

Fancy Friday – A Fancy Top 5

Fancy Friday – A Fancy Top 5 published on 2 Comments on Fancy Friday – A Fancy Top 5

Welcome to this month’s Fancy Friday Blog Hop!  Our team is a group of stampers who love to make beautiful things.  Sometimes they are clean, sometimes they are layered but the one thing I can say for sure is that our projects will be fancy!  If you hopped over from Paula Dobson, welcome to the next stop.  For June we are sharing our personal “Top 5” lists from the new 2017-18 Stampin’ Up Catalog.  Choosing 5…that was the hard part for sure!

Fancy Friday - Hello by Jen Timko | Floral Statements Stamp Set by Stampin' Up, Watercolor, Zig Clean Color MarkersI managed to combine 3 of my top choices onto this one card to show you why I love them so much.  This new Floral Statements stamp set was an absolute must buy for me and I ordered it immediately.  I’m so glad I did!  Isn’t it gorgeous??!!  I stamped it in black onto watercolor paper and then colored it.  Super fast watercoloring!  But the result is fabulous!  I put it onto a base of the new Lemon Lime Twist card stock and I love the pop of color.  And as an accent to the pink, I added the new sequins.  These are the Iridescent color from the Metallics Sequins Assortment.  Oh my, these are a wow!

To round out my choices, I just have to discuss the new Color Theory DSP.  This paper pack will be a go-to for so many of your cards!  The colors and the unique uses of the shades is perfect for so many projects.  And last (but not least)….the narwhal set (otherwise known as Quirky Critters).  I have no reasonable explanation of why I am obsessed with this set but I am.  Totally fun, totally adorable…and just a little quirky!

So here it is in list form:

  1. Floral Statements Stamp Set
  2. Lemon Lime Twist (in EVERYTHING)…and the other In Colors are fabulous too!
  3. Sequins – Metallics, Iridescent, all of them!
  4. Color Theory DSP
  5. Quirky Critters Stamp Set

I hope you like my take on the top 5.  Now on to the rest of the hop!  These talented stampers are going to inspire you for sure and I cannot wait to see what they enable me to buy share as their must haves!  Next up is the lovely Shannon Lane.
