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 SWEET birthday card!
Designing this project, I flipped through my stash and found stunning Love & Chocolate stamp set. To start, I die cut a bunch of macaroon shapes using the coordinating Love & Chocolate Die Set. This time the dies came super handy and saved me a lot of time. I used the negative part of the die to help me align the macaroon stamp into my MISTI tool and stamped all the elements with VersaFine Onyx Black ink since it’s waterproof. Next I proceeded with coloring using waterbased markers and a small water brush from Pentel.
As always, I’m leaving you all the exact colors used here: TOMBOW MARKERS 055, 062, 126, 133, 243, 373, 491, 515, 665, 676, 703, 725, 761, 772, 873, 977, 990, 991, .
A kraft A2 size (5 1/2″ X 4 1/4″) card base was embellished with a few heat embossed hearts from Simply Seasonal stamps set and It’s A Plan stamp set. I used the same two sets for a big birthday sentiment as well. Finally I stacked all the macaroons and tied a bow with a matching kraft twine.
That’s all for today! Hope you like this cute and sweet card! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fabulous day!
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 sweet and cute Happy New Year card!
I believe this is my last post for the Newton’s Nook this year and so New Year theme seemed to be perfect for this project. I flipped through my stash and found two wonderful Newton Celebrates and Newton’s New Year stamp sets that are so much fun to mix and match!
To start, I die cut the cutest critters opening the champagne bottle and a couple of glasses from Neenah Solar White paper using the coordinating Newton Celebrates Die Set and Newton’s New Year Die Set. Then I stamped the open images from Newton Celebrates and Newton’s New Year stamp sets using a copic friendly ink and colored everything with copic markers.
As always, I’m leaving you all the exact colors used here: COPIC MARKERS E40-E41-E43; R02-R05-R08-R46; YG00-YG21-YG23-YG25; C00-C1-C2; Y0000-Y00-Y11-Y15-Y18; R0000-R11; E0000-E30-E31.
Designing this card, I thought that red and gold colors will fit the New Year Theme perfectly. And so I heat embossed the sentiment and a few spare confetti from Newton Celebrates and Newton’s New Year stamp sets using a super fine gold embossing powder. Then I inked a matching pattern through Confetti Stencil with Candied Apple Distress ink and heat set it with a clear matte embossing powder for a tone on tone look. Finally arranged all the elements on an A2 size (5 1/2″ X 4 1/4″) card base and added a couple of matching sequins adhering them with Multi Medium Matte glue.
That’s all for today! Hope you like this cute card! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fabulous holiday season!

This project is very simple and involves only some basic stamping and coloring that you can do with any color medium you have on hand.

Today just to stay on topic I decided to put up some happy holidays lights on my card and play more with small, but super cute Holiday Lights stamp set
. To start, I die cut a bunch of small lights using the coordinating Holiday Lights Die Set
on Neenah Solar White paper. When you have to make multiple images the coordinating dies comes so handy and saves a lot of time! Since the light bulbs are such a simple shape, I decided to make no-line coloring with copic markers because it’s fun and allows you also to practice and try different color combos.
I stamped the light bulbs from Holiday Lights set
with a light dye ink using my MISTI tool and the negative part of the die and finally colored all the lights with copic markers. Working on the background, I inked Gingham
pattern with a very light gray ink and stamped in the center the matching sentiment from the same Holiday Lights stamp set
. I traced two curved lines with a black marker to use as the light strings. Assembling the card, I popped all the colored elements on a foam tape for a fun dimensional look and added a generous coat of a clear shimmer pen.
As always I’m leaving you the complete list of all the colors used on this project: COPIC T1- T3; V0000-V01-V04; RV00-RV10-RV02; RV21-RV23-RV25; R02-R05; Y00-Y11-Y15; G00-G02-G03; B0000-B00-B01-B02; YG00-YG01-YG13; YR00-YR02-YR04; BG10-BG11-BG13; BG0000-BG000-BG10-BG23; B21-B24-BG70.

Hello and welcome!!!
I’ve popped in again to showcase another cute example made with new fabulous collection from Purple Onion Designs designed By Julian Charlton.
Sale allert! Purple Onion Designs has a great sale these days! You can get all the new and old stamps at a discounted price until December, 13. So don’t forget to grab your favorites.
Although most of the stamps from the new release are silhouettes, there’s an adorable Happy Winter Forest Friends set with open images too filled with the cutest critters and a few amazing sentiments.
Since my intention was to color with watercolor markers, I made the stamping on Strathmore Bristol paper with VersaFine Onyx Black ink because it’s waterproof. I colored all the stamps with watercolor markers and then fussy cut right against the stamp lines. Just to finish with colors, I quickly inked an additional rectangle with Mermaid Lagoon Distress ink creating a sky portion to put behind the bear and the tree. For the background I used new Let It Snow Background stamp. I stamped it twice: first on a white card base with a light gray ink and then heat embossed with a white embossing powder on an inked sky. The matching heat embossed sentiment from the same Happy Winter Forest Friends set was added on a strip of a bright pink cardstock and popped on a foam tape along with other colored images.
As always, I’m leaving the complete list of all the colors used on this project: TOMBOW MARKERS N79, N95, 090, 133, 126, 452, 723, 725, 755, 977; ZIG CLEAN COLOUR MARKERS n.61 Light Brown, n.62 Dark Brown.
That’s all for today! As always thanks so much for stopping by!
