Coffee, books, a cozy armchair and a cat company make an autumn day really perfect! Take your sit, grab a mug and enjoy the Newton’s Nook Designs’ new release! The first day has reserved us a fabulous Sips & Stories stamp set that comes with the coordinating Sips & Stories Die Set. Plus two new amazing Mugs and Houndstooth stencils!

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving away Sip & Stories stamp set to a lucky winner so make sure you read all the way to the bottom of this post to see how to win!




On my stop of this hop you’ll find a copic colored card paired with both new stencil patterns! To start, I die cut from Neenah Solar White paper the girl shape along with a couple of accessories using Big Shot machine. I saved the negative parts of the dies and used them inside my MISTI tool for a perfect alignment while I was making the stamping using Sips & Stories stamp set and Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Finally I proceeded with coloring.

As always, I’m leaving you all the exact colors used on this project: COPIC MARKERS skin E50-E51-E53-E55; YR04-YR12-YR14-YR24-YG21-YR30; E25-E99; Y21-Y32; YG91-YG93-YG95-YG97; V0000-V01-V12-V15; R22-R24-R46; B91-B93-B95-B97; B21-B24-B26; RV21; YG01-YG17; T0-T1-T3.

An extended A2 size white card base (5 1/2″ X 4 1/4″) was trimmed and scored from the same Neenah Solar White paper. I applied new beautiful Mugs stencil on top of the card front and inked it using Antique Linen Distress ink and the blending brushes. Next I trimmed a piece of a kraft cardstock and transferred the Houndstooth pattern with a plain white embossing paste. The layout was completed with a die cut tag from Fancy Edges Tag Die Set. The matching sentiment from Sips & Stories stamp set was split in two parts. I stamped the first line on a narrow orange strip of paper while the other part was positioned directly on the card base. Finally I assemble all the elements with a bit of dimension and finished with a few clear sparkling sequins and a coat of Wink Of Stella Clear Glitter pen.

  1. I am inspired to see both stencils used on one card ~ great texture and colors! I am feeling like a coffee and a good book now that the kids are heading off to college!! My faithful kitty, Oscar, feels the same way !!

  2. Such pretty bright colors that you chose for your coloring of the girl reading with her cup of coffee & kitty! I love how you used both stencils on your neutral colored background that allows the image to pop!
