Newton's Nook Designs August Release - Introducing Simply Sentimental

Hey everyone!

This is my second post of the day! Please scroll down to see the latest Runway Inspired Challenge!


I'm back today to welcome to Day 2 of the Newton's Nook August Release!


We have TWO *awesome* sets being released this month - and you're totally invited to come party with us!

This month we've got something for everyone! Today's set is one that I just know will be popular - Simply Sentimental!! Large sentiments at last - hooray!

Here's what I came up with this:



What do you think? I love how this turned out!!




I started with a Pure White card base adhered patterned papers from the Crate Paper Love Notes Collection before stamping the sentiments with Versafine Onyx Black ink. A splatter of Heidi Swapp Colour Shine Mist in Gold Lame also makes an appearance!



I stamped Newton from Newton's Antics onto a separate piece of cardstock, coloured him with Copics then trimmed him out and adhered him in place using Pinflair Glue Gel. A chipboard shape from the Love Notes Collection, smothered with Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen and Glossy Accents, and some sequins complete the look!

Runway Inspired Challenge #66 - Sportmax Resort

Hey everyone! Happy Tuesday!

It's time for another Runway Inspired Challenge! I so love creating for these!!

Here's the *awesome* inspiration image for this challenge:




Another dress that I would totally wear! Love those big, bold roses! Here's what I came up with:



Loving how this turned out!



I started with a Your Style Blue Me Away card base and blended Studio Calico Colour Theory ink in Deja Blue over it. Next I tamped the big rose from Year of Flowers: Rose onto Pure White cardstock using Studio Calico Colour Theory ink in Something Blue and Versamark ink and heat embossed with WOW! Clear Semi Dull embossing powder before blending Distress Inks in Spun Sugar and Picked Raspberry over them.



I trimmed out the roses and adhered to my base using Pinflair Glue Gel, then stamped my sentiment from Think Big Favourites #10 using Versamark and heat embossed using Zing embossing powder in Rouge to complete the look!!


So anyway, now I'm all done squealing and monkey clapping with excitement and all the rest of it, you definitely want to check out what the rest of the DT have come up with!!

Newton's Nook Designs August Release - Introducing Hanging Around

Hey everyone!

This is my second post of the day! Please scroll down to see the latest Cure For The Monday Blues Challenge!


I'm back today to welcome to Day 1 of the Newton's Nook August Release!


We have TWO *awesome* sets being released this month - and you're totally invited to come party with us!

This month we've got something for everyone! Today's set is a fun fun set that is bound to become a favourite - Hanging Around!!

I thought I'd pair Newton with one of the other critters in the set and came up with this:



What do you think? I love how this turned out!!




I started with a panel of Rustic White cardstock and adhered a piece of patterned paper from the Heidi Swapp Dreamy Collection, then stamped the branch and sentiment using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured the branch with Copics then set about the rest of the detail!



I stamped Newton and the squirrel onto a piece of Pure White cardstock and coloured them in, along with another branch. I trimmed them all out carefully, including trimming around Newton's paws so I could hang him off the branch! All were adhered to the base using Pinflair Glue Gel and I added a wooden heart from the My Mind's Eye Necessities Wood Collection and I was all done!


All the Newtonians (that's what I've decided to call us, hehe!) are blog hopping today! Please be sure to join us and hop along and comment on each of the team's creations! Read on because there's a prize up for grabs!
