Wednesday, March 14, 2018



Hello, lovelies!
Welcome back to the Newton's Nook Designs March Release!
All the new products will be available for purchase this Friday the 16th in the Newton's Nook Designs Shop! Today is day 3 of the reveal and we're showcasing the Newton's Birthday Balloons Stamp Set along with the coordinating die set ;-)



 Who's ready to purr-ty with this cutie with balloons!?
This image is just so stinkin' cute, and HELLO! These sentiments are killing me with cuteness 💛
Okay, here they go...;-)


Newton's Nook Designs Newton's Birthday Balloons Set - Naki Rager


My first card today is quite simple, just a lot of inks! {LOL}
My oldest turned 8 this month and he was born at night, so that kind of inspired me to create a night sky background ;-) Playing with Distress Oxide Inks is such a blast! I blended several colors on this card, and white splatters were created with white acrylic paint.

Oh my goodness, could he be any cuter!!?
After heat embossing this cute little guy on watercolor paper, I just started coloring him with a few shades of brown and somehow he ended up looking like "Neko Bus" from the Studio Ghibli film Totoro. 




This movie is Japanese and 30 years old this summer! (WHAT!? HOW!!?) but if you haven't seen it, you must! I still remember going to the brand new theater with my mom and sister that summer night and totally believed that Totoro really existed! I once was innocent, too...{LOL}

Anyhow! He was heat embossed with iridescent embossing powder, can you see the tiny sparkles!? The moonlight is shining on this cutie floating down from the night sky ;-) Yeahhh, I guess I still have a big imagination so my cards usually have little stories {LOL}

I also heat embossed this sentiment with iridescent embossing powder, but it was kind of hard to see. Next time I will stamp with white ink ;-) 😜

My second project with the Newton's Birthday Balloons Set is a little tag ;-)
Wouldn't it be so much fun to receive this cute purr-ty animal on a gift!?

I stamped him on Artist Marker Paper and colored with colored pencils, then die cut it with the Fancy Edges Tags Die to remove his feet so that he looks like he's popping in where the purr-ty is! I also stamped and colored the kitty shaped balloon and fussy cut it to paper piece over the chopped image on the tag. I die cut the tiny confetti from washi tape sheets. I also gave him a purr-ty hat using the new Balloon Shaker Die Set ;-)

This purr-ty ready tag can be attached to a little brown bag all by itself, or dress it up with a few embellishments!
