Newton's Nook Guest Design - Newton's Antics

Hey folks!

I'm super duper happy to be guest designing for the Newton's Nook Blog this month! Today's post is one of four I will share and I can't wait to share them all!

One of my favorite things about Newton is that he makes for a great scene. Whether you take any Newton Stamp Set and use it as is or pair him with other fabulous images, you've got yourself a story to tell.


For my card today, I paired up several stamp sets. I started with some images from the Garden Starter and Flower Garden Stamp Sets. I knew that I would be doing quite a bit if masking so I stamped those on Inkadinkado Stamping Mask Paper and cut those out first.

Before I started stamping any of the images on my Neenah White Cardstock panel, I used a T- Ruler and lightly traced a rectangle on the front with a pencil. This will be my faux frame. I'm also going to use this as a guide so I know where to stamp my images.

When stamping scenes like this, it's alway important to stamp the images that are going to be in the front or foreground first. With this card, I not only needed to keep in mind what images I wanted in front, but also which ones I wanted to go outside the faux frame and the ones I wanted to stay inside the frame. For those that need to stay in the frame, I simply blocked off the outer edge of the frame with more masking paper.


The mischievous feline I chose to go with those big beautiful blooms is from the Newton's Antics Stamp Set. I LOVE how he looks like he's ready to pounce!

When I had everything stamped where I wanted it, I colored it all in with Copic's. You can see my color choices in the thumbnail links below. I adore big, bold color folks. It's go big or go home in my crafty world. Plus, I really wanted the whole scene to jump off the page.


Using a Copic Multiliner, I went over the faux frame again and added shading with my grey Copic's. The idea is to make it look like it's another layer to the card.

There's no need for embellies on this card peeps. However, to finish off my panel, I used Clear Wink Stella on the highlights of the images and Ranger Glossy Accents on the center of all of the flowers and called it a day.

That's it! Easy peasy.

As always, I hope you enjoyed my card today and 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 …
