Give Thanks


 Happy Monday everyone... I was up on the Markerpop Blog on Saturday with a Fall card and video.  The Newton’s Nook Designs September Release is now in the MarkerPop store and the new Shades of Autumn is a must have for all your Fall crafting!!


I started with a piece of Tim Holtz watercolor Distress card stock and I stamped each of the leaves several times using Fired BrickPeeled PaintWild HoneyFossilized Amber and Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Inks. I stamped each image into the ink and then I spritzed it lightly with the Distress Sprayer. Then press the image onto the cardstock and let sit for just a few seconds and lift. You will get a different look depending on how much water you add to the stamp.

Once the background images were all stamped I added some more water to move the color a little and dried the panel with my heat tool. I added some Vintage Photo Distress Ink around the edges with a Mini Ink Blending tool.  I added a few water splatters and removed the excess with a paper towel to create the Distress look. I wanted some gold so I added a few splatters of Distress Spray Stain in Tarnished Brass. Then I dried the panel and adhered it to the card base.


I created a Banner with the same color cardstock and the MFT Blue Prints #29. I stamped the sentiment in VersaMark ink and heat embossed with Gold Embossing powder. I adhered it to the side with some foam tape and added some mixed Gold Sequins for a little sparkle. You can save on your favorite Newton’s Nook Designs stamps and dies in the shop now until 9/19.

You can follow along as I create this card in the Video below…

NND Sept Release Day 3



Welcome to Day 3 of the Newton's Nook Designs September Release. Today we are introducing two stamp sets and their coordinating dies. Up first is Beautiful Bones..


This is a great set that can be used for so many different techniques. I used some Emboss Resist with my project and some Bright Distress Inks. 


I heat embossed the skulls onto a piece of watercolor paper using White embossing powder. Then I added several shades of Distress inks using the Smooshing technique. After it was dry, I wiped the images off removing any excess ink and then I trimmed a 1/4" off each side and stamped the Celebrate sentiment from the Cocktail mixer set. I wanted to the colors to really pop so I adhered the panel to a White card base. 


Our Second set today is Spooky Skeletons.. this set also has a coordinating die. 


Eeeekkkk!!! How fun is this set? I created a Fun card using some Glow in the Dark embossing powder. It was a bit tricky to photograph the glowing. 


I created a Black card base and added some Pattern paper and a frame from Black cardstock as well. Then I stamped each of the images onto some White cardstock in VersaFine Black ink and coated them with the Glow in the Dark embossing powder and heat set them. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and adhered them within the Frame. I stamped the pumpkin and the Moon in Orange and Yellow Pigment inks and heat set them using the same powder. 


I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of White card stock and used a banner die to cut it out. I adhered it over the frame with some foam tape. Here you can see it when the lights are out but it's not a very good picture.

NND Sept Release Day 2



Happy Tuesday... It's Day 2 of the NND September Release and today we are sharing a Fun Halloween set called Creepy Cameos and it's Coordinating Dies. There's also an add on Cameo Frame die. 

 


 I have a million ideas on how to use this set and that Gorgeous Frame die.  For my project today I imagined a Wall with the frames hanging on it. I found some pattern papers in my stash that resembled wallpaper. 


I created a Black card base and added the pattern paper after I die cut it with a stitched rectangle die. Then I die cut the Cameo Frame from some Black Glimmer paper twice. I created a background on some Bristol card stock with some Twisted Citron Distress Oxide ink and cut it down to fit behind the frames. Then I stamped the silhouettes onto some White card stock and trimmed them out with my scissors to get a closer cut. I adhered them in the frames with some liquid glue. 


I adhered the frames into the background with some foam tape. I stamped the sentiment onto some White card stock in Black ink and used a die to cut it out. I added some foam tape to the banner as well. This is such a fun set and a Halloween must have!!

NND Sept Release Day 1



It's Day 1 of the Septemeber Release Sneak from Newton's Nook Designs!! You are going to love this months release. it's full of everything you could need for Fall and Halloween Projects and a few that can be used all year long! 

Today we are introducing Shades of Autumn and it's Coordinating dies and a new Falling Leaves Stencil. 

 


Out of the entire release, this set is my Favorite!! The stamps are solid and have a texture to them so they are great for using with your Distress inks or showcasing different techniques. I will have a video next week sharing different ways to use this set so stay tuned. 


I started with a piece of Bristol cut to 4 1/4 by 5 1/2. The I added the leaves with some Distress Oxide Inks. Once the ink was dry I added some water splatters and removed the excess with a paper towel. Then I added some Vintage Photo ink around the edges and adhered it to a card base. I stamped the sentiment in the upper corner using some Brown ink. 


I stamped the leaves onto some Bristol using different shades of Distress Oxide inks and the Rock n' Roll technique. Then I spritzed each of the stamps with water and stamped down onto the paper. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and adhered them to the card panel over some Gold thread creating a nest.
