I’m sooooooo excited joining today the Design Team and the featured guests for the Newton’s Nook Designs Deck the Halls with Inky Paws Blog Hop!!
Hello and welcome!!!
I’m so happy you’ve joined me today and even more excited to be on the Newton’s Nook Designs blog sharing a cute card with a winter scene!
I mixed and matched a lot of fun stuff creating this project! The cutest critters were die cut with the coordinating Deer Friend Die Set and then stamped using Deer Friend stamp set with My Favorite Things Hybrid Black Ink since it’s copic friendly. I’ve also added a few festive Santa’s hats from Ornamental Newton stamp set.
And here’re all the exact copic markers I used on my card: E30-E31-E33-E35-E37; R000-R11; Y00-Y21; R35-RV29-R39; YG01-YG17; C1-C3; 100.
For the background I used Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers and Mermaid Lagoon Distress inks along with Forest Scene Builder and Land Borders Die Sets. The big bold sentiment from Sentiments Of The Season stamp set was heat embossed with a fine white embossing paste and finally the falling snow effect was added through Petite Snow stencil.
Arranging all the layers on the card front I used Multi Medium Matte adhesive since it dries clear and then popped the other elements on a foam tape. Finally I embellished my winter scene with Stickles glitter glue in Xmas Red and Star Dust colors.
As always thanks so much for stopping by!

You can also visit the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog today for another big blog hop and a chance to win more prizes!
New just released Slothy Coffee stamp set was so perfect to play with. I die cut using the coordinating Slothy Coffee Die Set the cute sloth in the coffee cup from Strathmore Bristol paper, aligned the negative part of the die cut into a stamping positioning tool and stamped the image with VersaFine Onyx Black ink since it’s waterproof. The fall twist to the card gave some pumpkins from Harvest Tails and a few falling leaves from Newton’s Cornucopia stamp and die sets. All the stamped elements were colored with Tombow and Zig markers which exact list I’m leaving here:
TOMBOW MARKERS: n.090, n.126, n.885, n.912, n.946, n.990, n.991, n.992.
ZIG CLEAN COLOUR REAL BRUSH MARKERS: n.41 Light Green, n.50 Yellow, n.52 Bright Yellow, n.70 Orange, n.71 Flesh Colour.
The background was made from a watercolor paper trimmed slightly smaller than an A2 size card base. I added some water washes with regular watercolors using the same color range and I used previously on the stamps. Finally the sentiment from the same Slothy Coffee set was simply stamped on the watercolor panel and all the elements were assembled with a bit of dimension.

Hello and welcome!!!
I’m so happy you’ve joined me today and even more excited to be on the Newton’s Nook Designs blog sharing my personalized birthday card!
I mixed and matched a lot of fun stuff creating this project! First of all I made my own stencil using the balloon die from Fabulous Frenchies die set. Next I added balloon strings using the coordinating Fabulous Frenchies stamp set and a partial masking technique. You can watch all the process right here.
For the background I used Mustard Seeds, Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry, Twisted Citron, Peacock Feathers and Blueprint Sketch Distress inks. The big balloon in the center of the card front comes from Balloon Shaker die set. You can easily give a personalized twist to your cards using alphabet and number dies. My “18” comes from Essential Alphabet die set. The tiny heat embossed sentiment is from cute Newton’s Birthday Bash stamp set. And finally for the accessories I used Fabulous Frenchies stamp and die sets (the same from the background) plus Papa Bear stamp and die sets and Cosmic Newton die set for tiny stars.
As promised, here’re all the exact copic markers I used on my card: RV21, Y02, YG01, BV02.
As always thanks so much for stopping by!
Hello and welcome!
Today Newton’s Nook Designs is featured on the Simon Says Stamp site with an EXCLUSIVE stamp set that was designed just for the 2018 STAMPtember celebration!
You can purchase the new Hello Beautiful Stamp Set and coordinating die sets today at Simon Says Stamp. Remember, these items are ONLY available through Simon Says Stamp while supplies last!
My card turned out almost one layer and was made with a little bit of masking technique. I used Fabriano Artistico Hot Pressed Extra White paper for the watercolor scene along with some watercolors from my personalized palette that contains Winsor & Newton, Daniel Smith and Schmincke brands.
The stamping was done with VersaFine Onyx Black ink since it’s crisp and waterproof.
Creating this birthday scene, I added a few fun birthday from Newton’s Nook Designs Playful Pandas stamp set and more I prepared the coordinating envelope using the same Hello Beautiful stamp set and some simple stamping.
And now I’m leaving you with a video tutorial!
