Mama Elephant Winter Themed Slimline Cards

Hi there crafty friends! Today I have a couple cards to share that I created using the adorable images from Mama Elephant's Dashin' Thru the Snow and Snow Friends stamp sets.

I love the ink blending combos that I did to create these backgrounds. The Lawn Fawn tree border stamps worked perfectly to help create the hills the little critters are racing down. 

For my second card I used the Mama Elephant Slimline Woodland Creative Cuts Die. This time I chose some blue distress inks for the background blend. 

I stamped, embossed and colored all the images using Copic markers. 


 Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today! I hope you are all having a wonderful day :)

Reveal Day 4: Newton's Nook Designs January Release

Hi everyone! I'm so excited to share the Day 4 reveal for the Newton's Nook Designs January Release!! Today we are showcasing 2 new stamp sets and coordinating dies. I created two Valentine's Day cards for you today :)
For the first card featuring the Newton's Mug stamps I pulled out some of my patterned papers. I stamped, embossed and copic colored the kitty in the Newton's Mug stamp set and cut it out using the coordinating die. Next I stamped the image again on some patterned papers, fussy cut the mug and glued it onto my diecut image. I added some shadows using cool gray Copic markers.  
I cut out the hearts using the new Heart Frame Dies. I stamped and gold embossed the sentiment from the new Heartfelt Roses stamp set onto the fishtail banner from the Banner Trio Dies.  I stamped, embossed and colored up the little hearts from the Smitten Kittens and Love Emergency stamps. 
For my second card I stamped, embossed and colored the adorable mugs from the Love Cafe' stamps along with this adorable cutie from the new Smitten Kitten stamps. I cut the images out using the coordinating dies. For the background panel I cut out the largest postage stamp rectangle from the Framework Dies. I ink blended the background using Spin Sugar, Victorian Velvet, Picked Raspberry and Aged Mahogany Distress Inks.
I splattered the background with sparkly gold and silver. I cut out the stitched heart from the new Heart Frames Dies and stamped and gold embossed the sentiment in the center. I embellished with clay hearts and some sparkle marker on the mugs.

Reveal Day 3: Newton's Nook Designs January Release

Hi everyone! I'm so excited to share the Day 3 reveal for the Newton's Nook Designs January Release!! Today we have one new stamp set and coordinating die. I created a slimline Valentine's Day card for you today :)


For the scalloped layer I used the Slimline Frames & Porthole dies. Using the square stencil from the new Slimline Masking Circles and Squares stencil set I created the square shaped scene for the background. First I stenciled the clouds using the Clouds stencil and Tumbled Glass Distress Ink to create the sky. Next I created a forest using the Tiny Trees Stencil and Bundled Sage and Shabby Shutters Distress Inks. For the road I used the Hills and Grass Stencil and Black Soot Distress Ink.
I stamped, embossed and colored the images from the new Love Emergency stamps using Copics and cut them out using the coordinating dies. To frame the little scenes I used the stitched panel from the Slimline Frames & Windows Die. I stamped and embossed the sentiment into the center square. I cut out a red layer of cardstock to frame the scalloped layer. Finally I embellished my card using some little clay hearts.

Hi everyone! I'm so excited to share the Day 2 reveal for the Newton's Nook Designs January Release!! There is one new stamp and coordinating die along with two slimline masking stencils! I created a slimline Valentine's Day card for you today :)
For the scalloped layer I used the Slimline Frames & Porthole dies. Using the new Heartfelt Love stamp and the new Slimline Masking Hearts 1 stencil I created the ombre heart background. First I stamped over the stencil and embossed the image using white embossing powder. Then I inked it up with Distress inks in Picked Raspberry, Spun Sugar and Victorian Velvet.

I stamped, embossed and colored the images from the Smitten Kittens stamps using Copics and cut them out using the coordinating dies. I absolutely adore this stamp set!! To frame the hearts I used the stitched panel from the Slimline Frames & Windows Die. I stamped and embossed the sentiment also from the Heartfelt Love stamp set onto some black card stock and trimmed it into a small banner using some scissors. I embellished my card using some little clay hearts.

Reveal Day 1: Newton's Nook Designs January Release

Hi everyone! I'm so excited to share the Day 1 reveal for the Newton's Nook Designs January Release!! I created two cards for you today :)

For my first card I kept it clean and simple. I stamped and embossed the heart and sentiment from the new Heartfelt Love stamp set onto a panel of kraft card stock. I framed it with a layer of pale pink card stock. I used colored pencils to randomly color some of the heats and embellished with some sparkly sequins.

For my second card I stamped the gorgeous rose heart image from the Heartfelt Roses stamp using some sparkly gold embossing powder. I used Zig Real Brush markers to color the roses and leaves. 

I stamped and embossed the sentiment onto the diecut banner from the Banner Trio Die that coordinates beautifully with the sentiments in these sets!! Finally I splattered the card with gold and the colors I used on the image.

There is also a new Heart Frames Die that coordinates with the heart images as well that I will use in some upcoming projects!

Special Delivery Valentine's Day Cards

Hey there crafty friends! Today I have a Valentine's card duo to share over on the Newton's Nook Designs blog featuring this adorable little scottie dog from the Canine Christmas stamp set.  


Even though this image is from a Christmas stamp set, this little pup works perfectly to deliver a Valentine as well!! First I stamped, embossed and colored the Scottie dog using Copic markers in pinks. For the layers I used the Framework Die.


Using the Tumbling Hearts Stencil I created an inked background with Picked Raspberry and Spun Sugar Distress Inks. I then went over some of the hearts with Nuvo Glimmer Paste to add both dimension and sparkle.


I popped up the dog using some double sided foam tape and stamped and embossed the sentiment from the Newton's Happy Mail stamps. Finally I added an enamel heart embellishment and lots of sparkle marker over the cloak.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you will visit the Newton's Nook shop and check out some of the adorable crafty goodies! Have a great day!!
