Newton's Nook Guest Design - Newton Rides West

Hey folks!

I'm back with my second guest design post for Newton's Nook! Today I'm showcasing two stamp sets that were released last month. Ah-dorable.

For this card, I thought I'd really switch gears and go with some no-line coloring on kraft with Prismacolor Color Pencils.


Newton on that horse just tickles my funny bone peeps. The name of this stamp set is Newton Rides West so I thought why not make this guy look like he's riding west on his little hobby horse?

The first thing I did was trim down some Strathmore Toned Tan Paper to 5"x5". Then I lightly traced a circle with a pencil in the bottom right hand corner. Use anything you like folks. A die, a bowl, a glass. Whatever's handy to get your circle. It just needs to be big enough o fit your scene. I used one of the circles from the Simon Says Stamp Nested Circles Die Set.

After I had my circle traced, I stamped all of my images with a My Favorite Things Kraft Hybrid Ink. The two Cacti in the front are from the Cultivated Cacti Stamp Set that was also released last month, These are solid image stamps ladies and gents. However, since I was stamping in a light ink and my plan was to no-line color this was no big.


There was very little masking for this card. I let some of my images go outside my circle and only needed to mask of what I wanted to keep inside my circle as well as any images that would overlap. Pretty. Easy. I used Post-It Tape where I needed to mask since I didn't need a lot.

While I pondered what I wanted my background scene to look like, I colored all of my stamped images first with Prismacolor Colored Pencils. I thought red would make great accents with all of the green and brown I had going on. Boy does that red really pop!

Now for my background. I'm really not a great freehand artist folks. Most of the time I can look at an image and recreate it though. It's not fancy or perfect, but it gets the job done. So, I Googled "desert scenes" and between a combination of a few different images, I sketched out the mountain(?), cliffs(?) behind my foreground images. I went with some orange undertones for this so it would set apart from all of the brown in Newton's Hat and the Horse.


For the sky, I made stencils using some acetate and the Newton's Nook Design Sky Border Die Set. Then using the stencils, I lightly traced a portion of each on to the panel. I really wanted the sky and the clouds to pop so I went with bolder blues and took advantage of the White Prismacolor Pencil on the clouds.

To finish it all off, I went over the polka dots in Newton's scarf with a Signo Uni-Ball White Gel Pen. I also added some Signo Uni-Ball Silver and Gold accents to the two Stars and the Horseshoes. A lil bit of Clear Wink of Stella to the Cacti and a dark brown card base and we have ourselves a finish card folks!

That's it.

As always, I really hope you enjoyed my card today. Thanks so much for stopping by to see me!

Until next time!

Making An Easy One Layered Card - Featuring Avery Elle and Copic Coloring

Hey folks!

I'm back today to share a suer easy and super fast one layered card with you all!

It's no secret that I love to mask and build up the images on a card. However, sometimes it's great to skip the masking and get the same effect. That's what I've done on my card today folks.

I'm a sucker for butterflies and if you make them rainbow and I will clap my hands like a demented seal. For real. So today I used the Butterflies Stamp Set by Avery Elle and did some basic Copic Coloring (color choices in thumbnail links below) in a rainbow color scheme.

On Neenah White Cardstock, I stamped my images in Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink with my MISTI Stamping Tool. You don't need a MISTI, but I'm a manic and it's almost impossible for me to line up my stamps again with a …

The stamp set I used today is Ah-mazing! It's the Hello Lovely Stamp Set by Concord & 9th and I'm tellin ya folks, if you're looking for something that has a whole lotta wow factor AND is easy, this is your stamp set.

Using my MISTI Stamping Tool, I stamped my Neenah White Cardstock Panel with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink.

There are some really groovy stamps in the set if you wanted to just ink them up and stamp them within the outline image, but I LOVED the idea of coloring this bad boy in.

Using Dies On A One Layer Card + Altenew Majestic Blooms

Hey folks!

I'm back today to share another card with you all! I've done loads of Copic coloring lately and today's card is no different, but I wanted to try some new (to me) as well.

I think Altenew has some of the most amazing flowers on the market. Their design and versatility is ah-mazing. The Majestic Blooms Stamp set by Altenew is actually a multi-layer set, but I climb on the struggle bus every time I attempt this kind of stamping, so I decided to stick with what I'm comfy with and simply use the outline of the flower and color it in with Copic's.


Since, I'm going to color this in with Copic's and I don't want them to bleed through the inside of my card I stamped the flower and leaves on a piece of Neenah White Cardstock with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink. This …
