Welcome to the Family – Winnie and Walter Rerun

Welcome to the Family – Winnie and Walter Rerun published on 6 Comments on Welcome to the Family – Winnie and Walter Rerun

Happy Friday everyone!!  I’m thrilled to be here today to help launch a new Rerun Feature and Challenge over at Winnie and Walter.  The stamp set for this month is Welcome to the Family with Eveline T Designs.

Welcome Little One by Jen Timko | Welcome to the Family Stamp by Winnie and Walter, Lawn Fawn Gotta Have Gingham Paper, Tim Holtz Distress Ink WatercoloringI think this little set is simply precious and I fell in love with the giraffe.  With a baby them in mind, I chose soft Distress Ink Colors and colored this little fellow on Fabriano Watercolor paper.  Just a little masking to allow him to sit on the block.

Welcome Little One by Jen Timko | CloseupI masked the sentiment as well to mix the script with the print….love the flexibility to do that!  Once everything was stamped and colored, I cut the image layer and the gingham paper using cross stitched dies.  Finally a little black twine for an added detail.

I talked a bit about the Stamping Away retreat that I attended last week in my post from Wednesday and this is another of the sets so generously given to us by Shay of Winnie and Walter.  She really is incredible!!  And the Rerun has cards created by some of my retreat friends too so make sure to go see them all!

I’m also linking this with the Simon Wednesday Challenge where the theme is Girl Power and the focus is on Winnie and Walter stamps.  Hope you enjoy my card and that you will be inspired to join in this month!  Make sure to go check out the Winnie and Walter blog for all the details!  Thanks so much for stopping in.  See you soon!

Truly Grateful by Jen Timko | Shades of Autumn Stamp and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Lovely Blooms Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Tim Holtz Distress Oxide InkToday is my day to share a project on the Newton’s Nook Designs Blog.  Even though it is the beginning of March, we are starting to see signs of spring here in Virginia.  My daffodils seem almost ready to bloom, if you can believe it.  I went a little non-standard and actually started with a set introduced in the fall…Shades of Autumn.  But I gave it a spring twist courtesy of the color palette and some flower dies from Lovely Blooms.

I pulled out my Distress Oxide inks in Worn Lipstick and Peeled Paint and created some backgrounds that I could cut with my dies.  The green I cut with the Shades of Autumn Dies and Lovely Blooms Dies (the leaves).  Then I cut out some blossoms with the Lovely Blooms flowers.  I love the variations from the Oxide inks and how they make these dies take on such depth.  On some more watercolor paper, I created a background with Broken China Oxide ink and then stamped the sentiment from Shades of Autumn in the middle.  I found some pink card stock to coordinate with the flowers and that completes the spring feel, don’t you think?  We may yet have a touch of winter coming but at least I can celebrate flowers and greenery in my stamp room!

I hope you like this fun way to use dies!  Make sure to stop by the Newton’s Nook Designs blog for daily inspiration.  Thanks so much for stopping in and I’ll see you soon!

Stamp: Shades of Autumn (Newton’s Nook Designs); Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black; Paper:  Strathmore Watercolor; Accessories:  Big Shot, Lovely Blooms Dies (Newton’s Nook Designs), Shades of Autumn Dies (Newton’s Nook Designs), Misti, Stitched Rectangles Dies (SSS)

Newton’s Nook Designs February Release – Newton’s Easter Basket

Newton’s Nook Designs February Release – Newton’s Easter Basket published on 28 Comments on Newton’s Nook Designs February Release – Newton’s Easter Basket


Welcome to day 1 of the February Release from Newton’s Nook Designs.  This month’s reveals are going to wow you, as usual.  Such variety and fun!  Today we have an adorable set called Newton’s Easter Basket (with coordinating dies) along with a new stencil called Cloudy Sky.

Egg-stra Special Day by Jen Timko | Newton's Easter Basket Stamp Set and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Cloudy Sky Stencil by Newton's Nook Designs, Watercolor, Tim Holtz Distress InkI love that we get to start off with our favorite kitty this month!  I chose the image with all the eggs but you are going to love the Newton “bunny” and Newton in the egg too.  Such fun!  I started by using the new Cloudy Sky stencil with Versamark ink and clear embossing powder.  I just applied the ink straight from the pad.  A little less precise but that was the look I was going for….just like real clouds!  The embossed areas resist the watercoloring.  I used Distress Ink in Peacock Feathers for the sky.  I created the grass using Mowed Lawn and cut the edge with the Land Borders Dies.  Then the real fun started!  I stamped Newton, a few extra eggs and an extra bird.  Using more Distress Inks I chose bright and happy colors and got to coloring.  The coordinating dies make cutting out the elements easy.  I added two extra eggs for dimension and the little bird seemed perfect on Newton’s tail.  I pulled out my white gel pen to add a little more detail to finish.

Isn’t this a great day 1?  Yep, I knew you would think so.  Now on to everyone’s favorite part of release week.  A chance to win!!

Newton’s Nook Designs January Release – Love Bites + Tumbling Hearts

Newton’s Nook Designs January Release – Love Bites + Tumbling Hearts published on 36 Comments on Newton’s Nook Designs January Release – Love Bites + Tumbling Hearts

Welcome to day 1 of the January  Release from Newton’s Nook Designs.  Love is definitely in the air and you are going to enjoy this week’s fun and whimsical offerings!  We are starting off today with a new stamp set called Love Bites and a stencil called Tumbling Hearts.

Totally My Jam by Jen Timko | Love Bites Stamp Set and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Tim Holtz Distress Ink ColoringThis adorable set features some creative pairings that you are sure to love!  I’ll admit that the “totally my jam” sentiment called out to be used first.  My youngest will often say that the radio is playing his jam when a favorite song comes on so this will be a perfect card for him.  I stamped the images onto Bristol Smooth paper and colored using Tim Holtz Distress Inks.  I thought this print (retired paper) was the perfect complement to the toast and allowed the jam to pop.  When a set is this cute, I think that is all you need to created a fun clean and special (CAS) card.  I can’t wait to play with the other images in this set…good for Valentine’s but also for all year long.

The new stencil is another must have for your repertoire.  I will be showing it off later in the week but I’m sure the team has some examples to show you today.  You can see it and all the images in the stamp set in the graphic below.  Now on to everyone’s favorite part of release week.  A chance to win!!

Would you like to win the “Love Bites” Stamp Set?

Freshly Made Sketches #307

Freshly Made Sketches #307 published on 6 Comments on Freshly Made Sketches #307

FMS307 by Jen Timko | Autumn Leaves Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Stitched Shapes Framelits by Stampin' Up, Tim Holtz Oxide Inks, Paper Pumpkin, Wood Textures DSP by Stampin' UpHappy Wednesday to you!  I took a little bit of a break last week to catch up on home things and to even clean my stamp room.  Seriously, it was out of control and I needed to reorganize before I could work in there anymore.  I’m sure you have been there!

I’m the sketch hostess this week over at Freshly Made Sketches and I wanted to make a sketch that could be interpreted in a few different ways.  I chose to go with it “as is” and made a little frame using my Stitched Shapes Framelits.  If you follow the Newton’s Nook Designs newsletter, you saw how I created these leaves for yesterday’s “Designer’s Nook”.  They use the Autumn Leaves Dies and are so pretty!!  The background is the fabulous Wood Textures paper by Stampin’ Up (a go-to for fall, don’t you think?!).  I added a piece of the 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon as another layer of texture.  The sentiment strip was cut from the same paper that I used for the leaves (where I had splattered ink) and this stamp is from the July Paper Pumpkin.  Don’t forget how much those add to your sentiment repertoire!  I found a few sequins in coordinating colors so of course I had to throw them on!

I hope you enjoy this sketch.  The design team has tons of inspiration, as always, and I would love to see you in the gallery!  Thanks so much for stopping by today!  See you soon!

Supplies:

Stamp:  July Paper Pumpkin Sentiment; Paper:  Arches Watercolor Paper, Wood Textures DSP (SU); Ink:  Early Espresso, Tim Holtz Oxide Ink; Accessories: Misti, Big Shot, Stitched Shapes Dies (SU), Autumn Leaves Dies (Newton’s Nook Designs), 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon (SU), Sequins (Honey Bee Stamps, Pretty Pink Posh)

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!!

Freshly Made Sketches #299

Freshly Made Sketches #299 published on 8 Comments on Freshly Made Sketches #299

FMS299 by Jen Timko | Mini Thank You Stamp by Studio Katia, Tim Holtz Distress InkWhat is it about summer that seems to fly by?!  Another week has come and gone already.  I survived clothes shopping with the “back-to-school duo” and we are trying to fit in as much summer as we can over the next couple of weeks until school begins.  With that, I am back today with a card for Freshly Made Sketches.  The incredible Kim Singdahlsen has given us a unique and fantastic sketch that is sure to inspire you!  I just love it!!

While I first thought about using some pretty papers for the panels, I realized that I liked the idea of washi tape instead.  I found two from SU in my stash that have differing width stripes and I thought they would be great together.  I created a watercolor background using Picked Raspberry Distress Ink and then added the washi tape.  I stamped the gorgeous sentiment from Studio Katia in Versafine Onyx Black and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  A few little sequins to finish.  It kind of has a summer feel to it, don’t you think?  Fun, bright and a little bit of whimsy.

I hope you will have as much fun with this as I did.  Make sure you check out the work from the whole design team…always a treat!!  I’ll be back tomorrow to share with you my project for the joint collaboration between Newton’s Nook Designs and Xyron.  There is all kinds of fun happening at the NND blog so don’t miss out!  Until then, have a great day!

Supplies:

Stamp:  Mini Thank You (Studio Katia); Paper:  Thick Whisper White (SU), Basic Black (SU); Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black, Picked Raspberry Distress Ink; Accessories: Washi Tape (SU), Metallic Sequins (SU), Heat Tool, Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder (SU), Misti

Newton’s Nook Designs 4 Year Celebration Blog Hop

Newton’s Nook Designs 4 Year Celebration Blog Hop published on 45 Comments on Newton’s Nook Designs 4 Year Celebration Blog Hop

First of all, today is the day that the 4 Year Celebration release goes live over at Newton’s Nook Designs.  To continue the fun, we are having a blog hop and I’m so thrilled to be a part of it.

Reach for the Stars by Jen Timko | Cosmic Newton Stamp and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Starfield Stencil by Newton's Nook Designs, Tim Holtz Distress Ink, Perfect Pearls, Land Border Dies by Newton's Nook DesignsI told you yesterday that my favorite set from this release was Cosmic Newton (but seriously, choosing a favorite is like choosing a favorite ice cream…I love them all!).  I used the new Stampin’ Up Embossing paste with the Starfield stencil on watercolor paper to start off my background.  Next I added Chipped Sapphire Distress ink by painting it on with a brush.  I got some of the light and dark coloring with that but wanted a little more dark.  So I pulled out the trusty acetate and smooshed some more ink on, spritzed with water and applied to the panel.  After it dried a bit, I spritzed on a Perfect Pearls mixture (in a spritzer with the powder and some water) to get a shine on the panel.  And finally, I splattered on some Smooch Ink to add some extra “stars).  I added a bit more of the Perfect Pearls onto the stars to help them pop.  For the trees behind Newton, I used the Land Borders Dies.  I was thrilled when it looked like the tops of trees in the shadows.  Finally, I colored Newton and his telescope with some more Distress Ink.  What a fun card to make!!  This set just lends itself to fabulous backgrounds and tons of creativity!

I’m sure you notice how much fun I have had with the stencils this week.  Well, there is a great deal that you are sure to love!So pretty much you can get the Pawprints stencil free on the order you were already going to make!  WIN!!  And speaking of winning…there is even MORE to win this week.

Newton’s Nook Designs 4 Year Celebration – Day 3 (and FMS)

Newton’s Nook Designs 4 Year Celebration – Day 3 (and FMS) published on 41 Comments on Newton’s Nook Designs 4 Year Celebration – Day 3 (and FMS)

Back with day 3 of the 4 year celebration with Newton’s Nook Designs.  Today we are showing off one set that I just think is adorable.  It is called Toucan Party…such fun!  I combined the reveal with the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches (where I am the sketch hostess this week).

Toucan Do It by Jen Timko | Toucan Party Stamp Set and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Tim Holtz Distress Ink, Tropical Leaves Stencil by Newton's Nook DesignsThe first thing I did for this card was pull out the awesome new Tropical Leaves stencil and create this background with Distress Ink (Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn).  Just look at what a great foundation it gives a card.  Can I tell you how happy I am for these new stencils??  And it seems like all of you are loving them too!  Then I stamped the toucan and some leaves and flowers using Versafine Onyx Black ink and colored using more Distress Ink.  Want to see my “muse” for this one?

Just look at his amazing coloring!!!  Nature certainly does it best so I just mimicked his colors.  And I LOVE them!!  Check out his little blue feet!!!  Yeah…I know.  Who can resist that?!  Clearly not me!  I colored some of the leaves as a background for him and then the flower as a balance element.  I used the small panel of the sketch to show off part of the sentiment (and the puns in this one are super fun).  Here is the sketch if you want to join in this week…I’d be thrilled to see you!
