Hi everyone!  Today is Day 1 of the Newton's Nook Designs September release and omgosh, aren't you so excited to see Unicorns?!?!  I created the sun-ray background using distress inks, then used the NND Starfield Stencil over the rays with Nuvo Mousse in silver.

I die cut using the matching dies, then Copic colored the unicorn and rainbow clouds.  I then added clear glue and glitter to give the mane, tail and rainbows lots of sparkle.  I also used the NND Sky Borders Cloud die and foam mounted my unicorn in the clouds!

Newton's Nook Designs and Xyron Collaboration!



This week Newton's Nook Designs and Xyron are partnering for a very awesome inspiration week! Each day there is fresh inspiration using Newton's Nook Designs products with Xyron adhesives on the NND blog and on the Xyron facebook page!

Hello everyone!  I started with the NND Winston's Lake House stamp and die set and die cut and Copic colored the images I wanted to use.  




I inked up my background using Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron distress inks on the bottom and Tumbled Glass and Chipped Sapphire on top for the night sky. I inked in some cloud shapes using a stencil and once dry, I added some sparkle using Nuvo mousse in silver and the Starfield Stencil by NND.


I cut 2 different waves from the Ocean Borders Die Set by NND and inked them up with the same blue colors in my night sky, only much lighter.  I laid down strips of tape using the Xyron Mega Runner Tape Gun on the back to adhere them to my circle that I had die cut and inked up with Squeezed Lemonade and Wild Honey.  


After the waves were glued down, I used my scissors to cut around the circle so the wave border would fall perfectly within the circle..creating the moon behind them.  Using my tape gun, I adhered my moon and waves to my inked background, then glued it all down on my card base.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment in the moon using Night of Navy ink by SU.  Then I placed and glued down Newton, lily pads and cattails around the water.  Thank you so much for joining me today, keep reading..there are prizes!!



Would you like to win a Prize pack including a Mega Runner from Xyron and a $25 store credit to Newton’s Nook Designs?
Here's how to win:Leave a comment on the NND & Design Team blog posts using Xyron products all week (July 31-Aug 4th) to enter. One winner will be randomly chosen from blog posts throughout the week so the more posts you leave comments on the better your chances are of winning! You have until Friday August 4th at midnight CST to comment. The winner will be announced on the NND blog post on Monday, August 7th.

Xyron will also be giving away a prize pack! Make sure to visit their facebook page each day this week for inspiration and leave comments there for another chance to win!  


I wanted to give you a review of the Xyron Mega Runner as this was my first experience using it. I was really impressed by how balanced the gun was in my hand and the tape itself laid down perfectly on my project. No doubt I'll be keeping this tape gun handy in my work space.

I'm normally a liquid glue user, so I was also excited to try the Xyron Adhesive Eraser Cube (pictured above).  It's awful when glue ends up where it's not supposed to and this seems to happen to me often.  This little eraser does the trick!  Even with stubborn glue, it lifts off easily..such a wonderful little tool!  **As a sidenote, I was given these products to work with for this collaboration, but the opinions I've written here are my own.

Newton's Nook Designs Chicken Scratches

Hello and a very happy Friday to all!  Today I'm in the country mood with this fun card I've made using the Chicken Scratches stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs.


Here's what this cute little stamp set looks like!
I used a dotted patterned Embossing Folder to create my background on some light blue cardstock.  I cut the hill using the Land Borders die set, then added a few strips of polkadot and black papers along with twine. I glued the hill onto my background, then added my chicks and a few little dots of feed on the ground.  Lastly, I created a banner, using the cute little piece of chicken wire I stamped and cut out, then glued down next to the sentiment!  I added a few red matte enamel dots on the banner too.

Thanks so much for stopping by, make sure to visit the Newton's Nook Designs store to check out the products I've used and more!

Newton's Nook Designs 4 Year Celebration Blog Hop!


Hello everyone and welcome to the 4 year celebration blog hop here at Newton's Nook Designs!  I'm so excited we get an extra day to show off these gorgeous products from the July release!

I chose to make another project with "Cosmic Newton" stamp/die set.  It was so hard to choose, but I love creating night skies and this image of Newton with his telescope really spoke to me.


I started with the largest die from the Stitched Nested Creative Square by Studio Katia and inked it in multiple darker blue and black distress ink tones.  I knew where I'd be placing my Newton image and wanted it to look like there was a beam of light shining down on him.  For that area I used some Peacock Feathers and Twisted Citron.  

After it was all dry, I splattered  with a little water and watered down white acrylic paint to create outer space.  I copic colored Newton and the tiny planets and placed them in the scene.  Lastly I cut out a banner and heat embossed the sentiment in black and added a few tiny pink stars.  

I hope you've enjoyed my project for this special event and I really appreciate your comments!  Keep scrolling for the list of participants in this hop, make sure to comment on every blog for more chances to win!
