Newton’s Nook

Festive Wishes

Happy Friyay everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the Color Throwdown! They have a beautiful colour palette again this week – cranberry, mint and cream!

I used my brand new Reverse Confetti background die together with trees from the Newton’s Nook Forest Scene Builder set.

The sentiment is from a Hunkydory/Moonstone sentiment set.

Day 4 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2020

Hi there!

I’m playing along with Tracey McNeely’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags event this year.

The sponsor for Day 4 was Newton’s Nook. I love Newton so I had a lot of choice when it came to choosing supplies for this tag! I loved the inspiration tags and decided to use one created by Kim for my inspiration.

Thanks for stopping by!

AAA Cards One Corner challenge with cosy twist

Hi there!

It’s time for another challenge at AAA Cards!  This fortnight we’d like you to create a CAS card using one corner of your card base only; our sponsor is Stamplorations. Our optional twist for this challenge is ‘cosy’!

I decided to use one of my vast collection of Newton Nook stamps for this card – there are a couple of sets that would work really well, but I love this image of Newton in the laundry basket – he looks so cosy, I knew it would be perfect for the challenge. I used a stencil by Newton’s Nook to ground my image which I coloured with my Twinkling H2O paints and fussy cut. The sentiment is also by.. yep, Newton’s Nook!

My team mates have come up with some beautiful cards which are on the AAA Cards challenge blog. We are also joined a previous challenge winner, and one of my favourite cardmakers, Angie – go check out her blog, it’s so inspiring!!

Hope you can play along with us!

Hey, colourful pumpkin!

Hello everyone!

Today I’m playing along with two of my favourite challenges with this card – Freshly Made Sketches and the Color Throwdown! The pretty palette this week is purple, red and orange!

I used the beautiful pumpkin from the With a Thankful Heart set by Reverse Confetti and added a few Simply Graphic die cuts together with a sentiment from an older Avery Elle set. For the background, I applied clear glossy texture paste using the Newton Nook Pumpkin Patch stencil – really like the overall effect of that paste!

Day 3 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2019

Hi everyone!

I’m playing along with Tracey McNeely’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags event again this year!

Newton’s Nook was the sponsor for Day 3 – I LOVE Newton so I had a hard time trying to choose an inspiration tag and image! In the end, I chose the tag made by Ellen H as my inspiration and used the sweet Purr-fect Present stamp and coordinating die. I created the base using various distress inks and the Ornament stencil by Newton’s Nook.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hang in there!

Hi there!

It’s time for a new challenge at AAA Cards! This fortnight we’re challenging you to use one image and the optional twist is positivity. Our sponsor is Precious Remembrance Shop

While I’m focussing on Christmas in July this month, I decided to make a non-festive card for my take on the challenge theme. I’ll share my Day 21 card a little later today.

When I saw the optional twist, I knew I had to use the fabulous ‘Newton hangs out’ set from Newton’s Nook which has a couple of super encouragement sentiments. I wanted to create a little more height with the main image so I stamped a section of the tree trunk twice. I coloured the image with my Twinkling H2Os and then masked it off. I added a few clouds cut from masking paper and then gently applied some Tumbled Glass distress ink. I love removing the mask from an image, don’t you? Almost as satisfying as heat embossing!

My team mates have come up with some beautiful cards which are on the AAA Cards challenge blog. We are also joined by the talented Sharon from the From My Craft Desk blog – she has some fabulous cards on her blog, so please do check them out too!
