Newton’s Nook Find Your Paradise Tropical Kitty Card

Hello, and welcome back!

It’s hard to believe the Summer 2017 Coffee Lovers Hop is more than half over!

  

Simon Says Stamp’s Monday Challenge is Stencil It and Newton’s Nook Inky Paws Challenge #49 is a sketch challenge:

Here’s what I came up with:

Yep, when I imagine paradise, I’m definitely going to want a hammock!! Of course, I’ll want a jaguar or bobcat to cuddle with, too! >^.^< Can’t wait until they’re peaceful critters again!

I like how the embossing of the Art Deco diamond die kind of looks like sun rays! The shimmering cardstock looked more of a golden-orange-yellow on its own, but I still like the cool accent.

A couple of small details:

     

I love the shine of that BoBunny embossing paste on the fun Ocean Spray stencil! And the Flower Soft on the anthers of the Hibiscus stamens adds a little dimension. Did you notice kitty’s claws have snagged that cup, but are loosing their grip? At least it’s not going to spill on him!

Materials used:

  • Newton’s Nook Designs: Aloha Newton, Newton Loves Coffee, and Paradise Palms
  • Spellbinders dies: Art Deco Ritz Decorative Elements & Card Creator A2 Valiant Honor
  • Die Cuts and More (DCAM): Ocean Spray stencil

One last bit of humor before I go:

Newton’s Nook Spring Coffee Lovers Friendship Card & Post-It Cube Gift

I’m glad you’re here for another day of the Spring Coffee Lovers Bloghop!

This time I decided to make a sweet little gift set using Newton’s Nook Stamps. Their Inky Paws Challenge this month is to use this sketch:

Here’s the gift set I made:

Stamping the cube of Post-It notes wasn’t too difficult… just had to grasp them firmly so the individual pads wouldn’t slide apart! (they did separate just a little when I attached them to my background. Since I used an ultra strong adhesive, They’re not budging now!

    

I still giggle at the joke of ‘If friends were COFFEE (instead of FLOWERS), I’d pick you’! FYI, the backboard die cut is out of 2000# cardstock and I only put the cutting plate up to the edge of the die right before the pattern started again, so it wouldn’t cut the bottom. Then I took a paper cutter and cut straight on down 4 additional inches to wrap it behind and under the stack for stability.

Supplies used:

  • Newton’s Nook Designs stamp sets: Aloha Newton, Beautiful Blossoms, Beautiful Wings, and Newton Loves Coffee
  • Spellbinders Divine Eloquence dies
  • Post-It note pads (6)
  • Core’dinations Parisian Nights A2 pink card and green and white cardstock
  • Memento dye inks: Bahama blue, Bamboo Leaves, Elderberry, Rhubarb Stalk,Rose Red, and Tuxedo Black
  • Papertrey Ink dye ink: Orange Zest
  • Kuretake Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens: 021, 026, 028, 040, 041, 044, 045, 047, 050, 052, 056, 070, and 081
  • Darice Foamies 3mm sheet foam
  • Simply Defined ‘Stacey Tape’ 2.5″ wide double sided adhesive
  • Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L EZ Dots, 3D foam squares and Crafty Power Tape
  • Misc. rainbow twine

I’m playing along with the following challenges… click on any one of them for more information on how you can join the fun…

I appreciate all my visitors, especially those who leave such kind comments… Thank you!

I’ll see you again real soon.

DIY Newton’s Nook Kitty Kiddy Games + Interview with Hobbes + Blog Candy!

Oh, I am so excited to share all the fun stuff in today’s post for the Cat Lovers Hop!

2016 Cat Lovers Hop

I can’t believe it’s already half over! Are you having fun yet?!!! Can you tell I’m a ‘litter’ bit excited?!! You’d better grab a cuppa as this post will be MUCH longer than my average post. For those of you who persevere and make it all the way to the end, there may be some extra special blog candy waiting for you. (wink-wink!)

Many of you are familiar with one of our generous sponsors, Newton’s Nook and the famous cat for which they’re named. (If you’re not, you can read Newton’s story HERE.) Did you know there’s another feline in the family named Hobbes?! If you’re one of the nearly 3k followers of Newton’s Nook on Instagram, you’ll see pictures of them both, but a quick scroll through reveals Newton about 20x more often than Hobbes. Who can blame him – what with the company named after Newton and all. So I thought we needed to get to know Hobbes a little better and he graciously answered a few interview questions for us.

20161026_hobbes_img_0201

  • If it’s not too personal, can I ask if you were named after Calvin’s best friend?
    • Yes I am! My owner, Jeff, loved Calvin and Hobbes cartoons and has all the books so when they adopted me he wanted to name me after his favorite cartoon tiger. 
      • I love how Calvin’s Hobbes always pretended to be a stuffed animal when other people were around, but went back to being a tiger with Calvin! lol! Believe it or not, I still have their books, too! I found these cartoons about Calvin’s crafting skills that might give crafters a chuckle: 20161026_130319
  • What’s it REALLY like living with Newton?
    • Newton is a great big brother. We like to snuggle and nap together when it’s cold outside. Although sometimes we do argue over who gets to sit in an open window or sunbeam!
  • Do you think Jen will ever do a Hobbes stamp?
    • I don’t think so. I’m too shy to be in the spotlight! But I have seen Jen color the kitty images to look like me on some of her cards! 
  • Do you have any crafts you enjoy getting your paws into?
    • Sometimes I like to chase bits of bakers twine when Jen is crafting! But mostly, I just like to keep her company and sit on the chair beside her while she creates or walk across her creations! 
  • What is your favorite thing to do with paper?
    • Chase it, of course!! Or sit on it!
  • Do people often send you and Newton cards or hand-made crafts? What are some of your favorites?
    • We do sometimes receive handmade cards from our fans and the whole family loves to see what everyone creates! Cards with cats colored to look like the card creators pets are my favorites! 

Thank you, Hobbes, for taking some prime sunbeam time to chat with us! You look so dapper in your bow tie!! (Bow ties are cool!) Here’s a parting truism from Calvin & Hobbes:

20161026_131342

Speaking of Calvin & Hobbes… If you’re a fan, you might enjoy checking out Disney artist Brian Keesinger’s Instagram account for some fun Little Hahn and Chewie mash-ups reminiscent of Bill Watterson’s work. (… like this one HERE… or THIS ONE… and THIS ONE… ok, I’ll leave you to find more that you like!  No… wait! One more just for the Cat Lovers Hop… the C.AT-AT — HERE.)

Well, now, back to the crafting. In honor of Hobbes visit, for today’s project I put together a couple of DIY kitty kiddy games. You know those little containers you get with take-out sauces or dressings in them?

20161026_132559

The lids can be easily up-cycled to make these fun little games. (I also use the cups to mix and briefly store paints.)

20161026_125241

I tried my hand a coloring one for Hobbes and one for Newton. My apologies to both of you as I’m not the greatest color-er. I’ll have better pics here in a minute… meanwhile, here’s a quick video of one in action:

I used some fall-colored cat paper and, since there was an outer ring, I poured in some fall-colored beads for a shaker effect, too. – Hey! You could add a handle and make a baby rattle and if you see your baby master the game, you’ll know you have a genius! Just kidding! lol!! They probably present a choking hazard, so best not to give to anyone under 5 – and no kitties, either, ok?!

20161026_125333 I’ve long looked at the basket of the hot air balloon in Newton Dreams of Paris and thought it looked like a Rubik’s cube, so I turned it into one. I’m sure Hobbes is smart enough to sort that out once he wakes up!!

20161026_125439

And, of course, the nerd in me HAD to put Newton’s game on a Newton’s Cradle for the photo! (for the non-nerds among us, this is a device named after Sir Isaac Newton that demonstrates conservation of momentum and energy.) If this was for the coffee hop, I’d’ve put grounds and brown beads in the shaker part. : )

Tips and lessons learned:

  • Punch the holes  in the game board BEFORE you put the backing paper on! Can you guess how I know?!!
  • Using cardstock to cover the cardboard on both sides adds strength to the base.
  • I used E6000 adhesive for the outer edge of the lid as it was so thin I needed something to sit on the edge without running down the side. Plus it doesn’t dry too quickly, allowing me to take a flat toothpick and drag it along the edge at my slow pace and then put the Krazy glue on the inner part and still have it sticky when I was done. Also, it is strong enough that I regularly use it on jewelry, so I knew it would hold well. Once dry, I noticed that I’d missed a couple of spots, but that was easily  remedied by putting some E6000 right up against the edge. Alternately, you could run a bead of decorative hot glue around the edge.
  • I used Krazy glue on the inner flat ring as it would spread easily and not leave streaks when dry. After using the glues, I could relate a bit to this Calvin & Hobbes comic… 20161026_131549(I think glue has a life of its own as it always manages to get somewhere that I didn’t put it!!)
  • Check that your beads will move around freely once the backing is on BEFORE you glue the top down. : ) Can you guess how I know?!!
  • I pricked the holes with a paper piercer, then enlarged them a bit with that tool with a round ball that you use to shape flowers (senior moment) and finally smoothed it out and widened it a bit more with a ball point pen.
  • Turn the plastic lid upside down and fill it with your beads, put the glue on the edges and lay your backing on top of the lid without turning it over until it dries. Place a paperweight on top to hold it down for a tight seal. This will keep your beads from sticking to any excess glue. Can you guess how I know?!!  There was, indeed,  a little bit of trial and error with these, but I like how they turned out.

Clear & Sheer Class – Day 1 – If Friends Were Flowers Watercolor Cards

What a week it’s been. After battling a severe allergic reaction and being 3 days without internet, I’m glad to be back with you again. I was tickled pink to be given the Clear & Sheer Online Card Class by a dear friend.

20160427_ClearSheerClass

In case you’re interested, it’s all about using vellum and acetate on cards and there have been many ultra cool techniques that made the class totally worth the small price!

Day 1 was all about attaching vellum… it’s often a challenge to hide the adhesive since vellum is transparent. I’ve been wanting to try a watercolor technique the talented Kelly Latevola showcased on the Newton’s Nook Blog a while ago. You can see her video HERE. I had also received some of the Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens and I wanted to compare them to my Tim Holtz Distress Inks. I’ve been excited by the vibrancy I’ve been seeing in projects using the Zigs. My results were surprising…

20160502_192606aW

The more vibrant card on the left was done with Distress Inks and the softer colors on the right were the Zigs. Perhaps they’re lighter because it was done as a watercolor technique and not direct to paper. To attach the vellum sentiment, I wrapped the strip around to the back and secured it with adhesive. It still wanted to lift up a bit, so I stuck a drop of blue near the sentiment and covered it with a sequin. The vellum butterflies had enough embossed design on the body to cover any adhesive and the wings float free.

A couple of other things inspired this card –

One was this month’s Newton’s Nook challenge to use this sketch…

20160502_NN

Well, my project is roughly divided into three sections, but I took huge creative license and put a butterfly in the middle instead of a tag…. I’m hoping Newton and Hobbes won’t complain too much, but a tag just didn’t look right. : )

Another influence on this card were Verve’s April Diva Inspiration Challenge colors:

I Love Hanging Out With You + Blog Candy

Welcome back to another day of the Winter Coffee Lovers Hop! They say today is National Hot Cocoa Day… What DON’T they have a day for? Incredible! I guess Starbucks and Dunkin’ Donuts didn’t hear of it because there were no free offers like on National Coffee Day. lol!

Did you notice the picture of young Newton on the wall? >^.^< The scenery out the window is a picture I cut out of Florida Design’s Art Galleries Magazine. “That Day in the Glade” by Henry Von Genk III.
