and guess what...there's an AWESOME promotoin going on too!!



today we're having a blog hop with some special guests!
here's my card:



I stamped and colored the adorable image from Pina Koala and then added foam tape!

I think he's SOOOO cute!! eeep!
I could NOT stop singing this song in my head while I was making this card! ha!



I used Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn Distress Inks to add some color to my white card base, and then I used the Tropical Leaves Stencil and the same ink colors to add some detail!

then I used the Essential Alphabet die set to add to the sentiment! ha!

hilarious, right?

(but the fun's not over yet!!)
welcome to day 4 of Newton's Nook Designs July release and 5 year celebration!


and oh my gosh you guys...this release is so completely amazing! I'm in LOVE with each new set, and I can't wait for you all to see it, too! these sets are so FUN and perfect for those summer birthdays coming up!
today we're sharing the fun, summer inspired 5 new mini sets + coordinating dies!!!

I'm only sharing cards made with 2 of the new sets, so be sure to hop along to EVERYONE'S blogs to see all FIVE of the new sets being featured today!
my first card uses the Floaty Goat stamp set!


isn't it hilarious?! I laugh every time I see that sentiment! ha!
I used the packaging technique to smoosh Blueprint Sketch and Tumbled Glass Distress Inks onto my card front as the water!

then, I colored in the images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers, and then used the coordinating dies to die cut them out! see that little hidden rainbow in the icecream...I can't stop myself guys! ha!


what I really wanted to do was add an action wobbler under the goat, but I didn't have any of the minis! bummer!! ha!

my second card features amazing Flip-Flop Life stamp set!


again, I used my favorite Distress Ink color combos: Wilted Violet, Blueprint Sketch and Peacock Feathers to create the sky! then I used the Cloudy Sky Stencil to add some clouds with white embossing paste!


I added some clothespins and then used my sewing machine to add the 'laundry line'! ha ha! I recently used this idea for a onesie card I made, you can see it here! ha!

Newton's Nook Designs’ 5 Year Celebration - Day 3

hello there!
still with us? it's Day 3 of Newton's Nook Designs July release and 5 year celebration! yahoo!




and oh my gosh you guys...this release is so completely amazing! I'm in LOVE with each new set, and I can't wait for you all to see it, too! these sets are so FUN and perfect for those summer birthdays coming up!
today we're sharing theses INCREDIBLE big stamps: Shark Frenzy and Flamingo Flock
you can totally create a project life type spread, gift tags and, of course, cards! all of the new sets will be available for purchase on July 20th, right here!

my first card uses the new Shark Frenzy set!


I colored in the images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and then cut out along the edges!
I was inspired to make this card after watching this video by Jennifer McGuire!
It opens on both sides, and on the right side of the card is some white embossing paste that i used with the Bubbly Stencil


I love how it opens on both sides!
It's totally a new concept for me! ha!

my second card features the cute flamingos from Flamingo Flock!


I stamped then with Worn Lipstick Distress Ink and then colored in the images, ligthly.
I also stamped the two flamingo images from Flirty Flamingos and then popped them up with foam tape over a circle of vellum!


all of that was put over the background images! then I used the scalloped shape from the Flags and Frames die to add a fancy edge!
oh! I also heat embossed the sentiment onto the vellum circle and then added some sequins!

hello again!
we're keeping it strong this week with day 2 of Newton's Nook Designs July release and 5 year celebration!




and oh my gosh you guys...this release is so completely amazing! I'm in LOVE with each new set, and I can't wait for you all to see it, too! these sets are so FUN and perfect for those summer birthdays coming up!

you can totally create a project life type spread, gift tags and, of course, cards! all of the new sets will be available for purchase on July 20th, right here!

my first card just had to use that cute icecream eating Newton from Newton's Summer Treats stamp set!


I colored in the images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers, and then used the coordinating dies to die cut them out! see that little hidden rainbow in the icecream...I can't stop myself guys! ha!

I used a striped stencil and some white embossing paste to add texture to the background!


then I folded down the top corner of the card front to reveal a fun, summer sky!

my second card features the cute little camper from Cozy Campers!


I used some light, light grey cardstock, and the Starfield Stencil to add the white embossing paste! LOVE that subtle, night sky!


I used Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn Distress Inks to ink blend on the hills I cut out with the Land Border dies!
lastly, I heat embossed the sentiment onto a tiny bit of vellum, then adhered it to the card.
