Simon Says Stamptember + Newton's Nook Release!

eeeek!!
it's time to let the cat out of the bag...pun intended!
Newton's Nook Designs created a special stamp set for the Simon Says Stamp Stamptember Release!!! it's ADORABLE!!


i just LOVE the set!
it's so cute and just PERFECT Fall! 

both of my cards were watercolored with my Inktense pencils! (i'm trying to convince myself to fall in love with them! ha! the pencils, not the images! i already LOVE the images!) 

my first card is a thank you card!


i popped up that adorable little bunny with some foam tape against that fun night sky! i created the sky panel by blending Distress Inks (Chipped Sapphire, Peacock Feathers and Evergreen Bough). then I sprinkled on some water drops and even used some embossing paste and a star stencil! LOVE it!


i stamped the sentiment on the vertical going up - i don't usually do that, but i LOVE how it looks! 

my second card is so FUN!


again, i used some embossing paste and a polka dot stencil for the background. then i combined the newton in the leaves image with the FUN sack of leaves! that naughty cat totally knocked down the leaves to jump in them! ha!


i used that AWESOME sentiment and then used a strip of bold b&w washi to add some contrast!

i LOVE the cards! and i'm BEYOND excited that Newton's Nook is now part of the Simon Says Stamp Stamptember release!!! yahoooooo!!

be sure to pick up your limited edition stamp set before they're sold out! 
enjoy!

  1. Samantha I just love your cards. I love the background you created in your first card. I love the colours of the leaves in your second card and the texture of the background. Both cards make me want to break out my inktense pencils as I love the look you achieved with them.
