Newton's Nook Designs 5 Year Celebration | Day 1

Hello friends and welcome to Day 1 of Newton's Nook Designs 5 Year Celebration! Every day this week we're celebrating the 5 year anniversary of Newton's Nook Designs with a fun blog hop and fabulous product release! There are SO many new products that are sure to get your creative juices flowing and they are just purrfect for a variety of summer themed cards and projects.

Mermaid Card | Purr-maid Newton Stamp Set


We start off today with a new set called Purr-maid Newton! I mean seriously does it get any cuter than Newton as a mermaid?!

Let's Be Mermaids Card by Juliana Michaels featuring Newton's Nook Designs Purrmaid Newton Stamp Set and Tropical Fish Stencil

To get started, I stamped and colored the images using Chameleon Pens. I then die cut them using the coordinating Purr-maid Newton Die Set. Next, I die cut a piece of white cardstock using the scalloped stitched die from the Framework Die Set. I then dry embossed it using the brand new Tropical Fish Stencil. It's super hard to photograph the embossed detail, but in real life it adds a wonderfully subtle touch of texture.


I then added the sentiment and popped up all of the images using double sided foam adhesive. To complete the card, I adhered the panel to a coordinating piece of patterned paper.

Manatee-rific Stamp Set


The next set we're revealing today is the Manatee-rific Stamp Set. This set is super adorable and I just love that one of the manatees has a die that cuts it arms and lets him hold a variety of images. I put a little seashell in his arms!

You're Manatee-rific Card by Juliana Michaels featuring Newton's Nook Designs Manatee-rific Stamp Set, Waves Stencils and Tropical Fish Stencil

The background was created by die cutting the stitched rectangle die from the Frames & Flags Die Set. I then stenciled over it with Distress Oxide Ink in Mermaid Lagoon using the Waves Stencil. I then dry embossed it using the new Tropical Fish Stencil. To help these images pop a bit, I very lightly inked over them with Distress Oxide in Blueprint. I then added a few splatters of water and dabbed them dry. I love how layering these 2 stencils created the look of an underwater scene!


For a fun twist on a card, I created a bit of a fold over design. If you would like the measurements and directions on how to create this, please let me know. I'd be happy to share it in a separate post.


As you can see, this bottom flap opens up revealing more space for your message.

Simply Mermazing Card | Narly Mermaids Stamp Set


The final stamp set we're sharing today is called Narly Memaids. Ok, I know the other sets are super cute, but check out this adorable narwhal! He just looks so hugable! For this card, I began by stamping the coloring the images using Chameleon Pens. I then die cut them using the coordinating Narly Mermaid Die Set. 


To create the background, I die cut a piece white cardstock using the scallop stitched frame from the Framework Die Set. I then used the grass die from the Land Borders Dies Set and the waves die from the Sea Borders Die Set to die cut this piece into sections. I inked the waves with Distress Oxide in Mermaid Lagoon and the sand with Antique Linen. For the back panel, I again dry embossed a piece of white cardstock using the Tropical Fish Stencil. And as I mentioned earlier, it's so hard to photograph this, but I promise it looks amazing in person!
