Peonies in Silver

This week Newton’s Nook Designs and Xyron are partnering for an awesome inspiration week! Each day there is fresh inspiration using Newton’s Nook Designs products with Xyron adhesives on the NND blog and on the Xyron facebook page!  I am thrilled to be here on the lead off day to share with you.

Hello by Jen Timko | Peony Blooms Stamp Set and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Cameo Frame Die Set by Newton's Nook Designs, 3" Disposable Sticker Maker by XyronToday’s card all started with the Cameo Frames Die Set.  This intricate die is gorgeous but I will admit that dies like this (and word dies) sometime intimidate me because of how to adhere them to a card.  So I was a stamper on a mission and took advantage of this collaboration to see what solution I could find.  And you know what??  I found one!  The Xyron sticker makers are a new to me product and I’m officially in love.

Hello by Jen Timko | Peony Blooms Stamp Set and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Cameo Frame Die Set by Newton's Nook Designs, 3" Disposable Sticker Maker by XyronI started by running some glitter paper through the sticker maker.  That is certainly simple enough!  I removed the top clear layer and then put my die down on the paper.  Next up, the Big Shot.  I shimmed this with some plain typing paper to force the cut a little more and then ran it back and forth a few times to make sure the cut was really complete.  When you remove the die, you are left with a die cut that has a sticky backing.  Talk about making things easier!  Once I knew it was that simple, I got to designing the rest of the card.  This frame is so pretty all alone that I didn’t want to cover it or take away from it.  So I pulled out some vellum and did some Versamark stamping followed by silver embossing powder.

Hello by Jen Timko | Peony Blooms Stamp Set and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Cameo Frame Die Set by Newton's Nook Designs, 3" Disposable Sticker Maker by XyronI used the Peony Blooms stamp set (one of my all time faves) on the vellum.  I added the sentiment from the same set off center.  The backing was pulled off the frame and it adhered perfectly.  I glued down the flowers and then added a clear button and some silver thread.  To add to the silver (but trying not to take away from the gorgeous frame and images), I added a silver striped vellum to a white base.  And that’s it.

It all started with the frame and the ability to glue it down simply.  Xyron has so many wonderful products and you are sure to find tons of inspiration from the combined DT’s this week.  And guess what…a chance 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
