Coffee Card | Newton's Nook Designs

Hello friends! If you didn't already know, coffee is one of my favorite things. And today I'm sharing a Coffee Card I created using some of my favorite Newton's Nook Designs Stamps. In fact, I've combined 3 stamp sets to make this card. Any guesses before I share which ones below?

To get started, I created the stenciled background using the Tumbling Hearts Stencil and Distress Oxide in Vintage Photo. I applied the ink more intensely to the center of the paper and then blended it out to the edges to give it a slightly faded effect.

I then went about collecting some of the coffee themed Newton stamps. First up, I stamped and colored Newton with the coffee press from Newton Loves Coffee. All of these images are stamped with Versafine onto Strathmore 400 Series Watercolor paper and then colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.

Next, I added Newton from the Sending Hugs Stamp Set and added the coffee cup. I love how the dies from this set, cut out their little paws so they can hold things like the coffee cup! And finally, I added Newton from the Newton's Costume Party Stamp Set.

Llama Birthday Card by Juliana Micheals with Distress Ink Die Cut Rainbow Background featuring stamps by Newton's Nook Designs

To get started with creating this card, I cut out a frame from white cardstock using the Frames & Flags Die Set.  I then cut it into strips using the hill die from the Land Borders Die Set.

Distress Ink Die Cut Rainbow Background

I cut it into 5 sections...one for each color I wanted to use. I went with a rainbow color palette! To apply the ink, I used a foam blending tool and applied the ink to just the edge of the piece to give it a faded out effect.

Distress Ink Die Cut Rainbow Background

Once the background was complete, I stamped the sentiment and then adhered the adorable llama and some presents. The "Happy Birthday" sentiment is from Newton's Loves Cake. All of the color on the images was done with Chameleon Markers.

Newton's Nook Designs February Release Day 4 | Woof Pack

Hello friends! It's Day 4 of Newton's Nook Designs February Release and today we're sharing another fun set and this one is going to be a favorite of all the dog lover's out there. This set is called Woof Pack and is the dog version of the Company of Cats stamps set that we revealed yesterday!

On my post yesterday, I shared 2 different ways to go about coloring the Company of Cats Stamp Set. One version was simple and the other was more detailed.  I decided it would be fun to repeat the same process for the Woof Pack stamp set.


Woof Pack | Detailed Version


I once again used Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and stamped the image with Black Versafine onto Strathmore 400 Series Watercolor paper. I then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.

Friends Dog Card by Juliana Michaels featuring Newton's Nook Designs Woof Pack Stamp Set

I then used the two largest frames from the Frames and Flags Die Set to create a frame. I centered and then taped the two dies together and die cut the frame from black cardstock.  I then placed it on top of the colored image.

For the simple version, I only colored the collars and scarves on the dogs and then added some color around the outside edge to help the design pop.

Pawsome Dog Card by Juliana Michaels featuring Newton's Nook Designs Woof Pack Stamp Set

The sentiment and paw print used on this card are from the Terrific Terriers Stamp Set. I stamped it with Versamark Embossing Ink onto a small flag die cut from black cardstock using the Frames and Flags Die Set and then heat embossed it with white embossing powder.

Inspired By Challenge | Hello Card

Hello friends! I'm very excited to be joining my friend, Laurel, in taking part in her Inspired By Challenge. Each week there is a new challenge image to inspire you. This week’s challenge is to make something inspired by this picture and the challenge is called "Inspired by... Cheesecake Anyone?".


[Affiliate links have been used to Scrapbook.com. If you click on them there is no extra cost to you. Thank you so much for your support!]

I do love me some cheesecake...especially Cheesecake Factory's Red Velvet Cheesecake! YUM!
For my card, I was inspired by the colors and circle shapes of the plates. I pulled out the new Jillibean Soup collection called Bohemian Brew and some circle dies in various sizes. After cutting out circles in different sizes and colors, I began layering them until they somewhat matched the way the plates and cheesecake are laid out in the photo. For the pop of red from the berries, I die cut a couple of hearts and popped them up with double sided foam adhesive.

I then finished it off with a die cut sentiment from the Bohemian Brew Pea Pod Parts and a little red twine bow. BTW...this new collection will be available very soon at Scrapbook.com! If you want a full look at the collection you can check it out here...Jillibean Soup Bohemian Brew.

Newton's Nook Designs February Release Day 3 | Company of Cats

Welcome friends! It's Day 3 of Newton's Nook Designs February Release and today we're sharing a fun new set that is sure to be a favorite of all the cat lover's out there. This set called Company of Cats is similar to the super popular Frozen Fellowship Stamp Set, but instead of snowmen we have cats!

This stamp is sized to fill your card front and is super fun for coloring! So if you love to color, you are going to have a blast coloring all the kitties! Now, I have something to admit here. I was a bit intimidated with "all the coloring" when I first started playing around with this stamp set. It got me to thinking that I may not be the only one out there to feel that way, so I decided to create and share 2 different ways to go about coloring this stamp set. One simple and one more detailed. It did take a while to color the more detailed version..but I was relaxing and having fun while I was coloring. And that is what coloring is all about!

Company of Cats | Simple Version


Simple Coloring Cat Card by Juliana Michaels featuring Newton's Nook Designs Company of Cats Stamp Set

[Affiliate links have been used. Thanks so much for your support!]

I used Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers to do my coloring on both cards. I stamped the image with Black Versafine onto Strathmore 400 Series Watercolor paper. I then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. By embossing the image it helps "hold" the color in place and reduces the possibility of the colors bleeding.

To create the simple version, I only colored the bows, scarves and collars on the kitties. I then colored all around the edges to help the design stand out more against the white background. Once the coloring was complete, I die cut the panel using the large frame die from the Frames and Flags Die Set. I then stamped the sentiment onto black cardstock and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I did the same technique and added 2 little paw prints for a bit of an embellishment to the sentiment. The paw prints are from the Newton's Sweetheart stamp set.

Company of Cats | Detailed Version


Now let's take a look at the detailed version. As you can see, I colored all the kitties different colors using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I used a water brush to help blend the ink.

Once the coloring was done, I trimmed the panel to size and mounted it onto a piece of black cardstock die cut using the large frame from the Frames and Flags Die Set.

I hope you enjoyed learning about 2 different ways to color stamp sets like Company of Cats. Remember, you don't have to get complicated or detailed with your coloring to make a great card design!

Hello friends and welcome! It's Day 2 of Newton's Nook Designs February Release and I'm so happy you are joining us! We have another great hop going on for this release and the design team is sharing loads of inspiration each day this week. Today, we're showcasing the new stamp set called Bitty Bunnies! It is totally ear-resistable!!!

You Are Ear-Resistable Bunny Card


For my card, I stamped and colored all 3 of the bunny images from the stamp set using Chameleon Pens. I then die cut them using the coordinating die set. I also stamped, colored and die cut the two little butterflies as well.

Once I was done with the coloring, I went to work on the background. I placed the new Cloudy Sky stencil onto a piece of white cardstock and inked over it using Distress Oxide in Salty Ocean. I then added some white details to the clouds using a white gel pen.

For the next step, I used a circle frame die and cut it from a piece of white cardstock. I also cut a strip of blue cardstock to layer behind it.

Next, I placed the bunnies behind the openings on the die cut frame. To give this all some dimension, I used double sided foam adhesive to pop up the white frame from the blue strip. I also popped up the bunnies and the butterflies!

The final touch was to stamp the sentiment onto black cardstock and heat emboss it with white embossing powder. I then die cut it using one of the flag dies from the Frames and Flags Die Set

Cloudy Sky Stencil 2 Ways


Along with the Newton's Easter Basket Stamp Set, we're also showcasing the new Cloudy Sky Stencil. I'm going to share with you how I used this new stencil to create 2 different backgrounds.
First up I used it to create a Simple Stenciled Background.

Happy Easter Stenciled Background by Juliana Michaels featuring Newton's Nook Designs Newton's Easter Basket Stamp Set and Cloud Sky Stencil

[Compensated affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you.]

To get started, I die cut a circle from white cardstock. I then placed the stencil on top and inked it up with Distress Ink in Salty Ocean. I then die cut a strip of grass using the Newton's Nook Designs Land Borders Die and inked it up with Distress Ink.

To trim off the excess, I placed the circle die on top of the stenciled background and used Therm O Web Purple Tape to hold it in place.

I then ran the die cut grass and circle die through my die cutting machine.

I love that I get the great stitched edge from the circle die by trimming off the excess this way.

Once the stenciled background was completed, I added the stamped, colored and die cut images from Newton's Easter Basket.

To complete the card, I went with a white on white card base for the rest of the card. To add a touch of texture I embossed the main card panel with a polka dot embossing folder. It's never easy to capture this in a photo, but in real life the touch of texture is fabulous!

On this second card, I First up I used the Cloudy Sky Stencil to create an Embossed Background.

I die cut a circle from white cardstock and positioned it onto the stencil. I then followed the directions for embossing with a stencil for the Spellbinders Platinum 6.

To add the grass to this piece, I used the Land Borders Grass die and created a mask. I placed the mask on top of the circle and used Purple Tape to hold it in place. I then inked it up with some Distress Oxide in Peeled Paint.

Embossed Background by Juliana Michaels featuring Newton's Nook Designs Cloud Sky Stencil

To create the cloudy blue sky, I used the other part of mask. Here you can see both piece after I created for the masks. I simply cut a 4.25 x 5.5 piece of cardstock into 2 pieces with the die.

I placed the other mask over the inked grass area and proceeded to ink up the top part of the die cut circle with Distress Oxide in Salty Ocean.

Once the background was complete, I added this adorable image from the Newton's Easter Basket Stamp Set. I also went with the same white on white background as well. I really love how this keeps the focus on the stenciled and stamped images and of course on Newton!
