Newton's Nook Designs and Studio Katia Blog Hop!

hello!!

What an amazing day!
Welcome to the Summer Fun Collaboration Blog hop with Newton's Nook Designs and Studio Katia! Both teams are celebrating the start of summer with fun and colorful cards using stamps from Newton's Nook Designs and dies and embellishments from Studio Katia. There's prizes too! Both companies have a prize to give away too so make sure you read all the way to the bottom of this post to see how to win!



I created TWO cards for this AWESOME hop using various Newton's Nook and Studio Katia products! :)

My first card is a little ocean scene! :)



I started by stamped and coloring my images from the Newton's Summer Vacation stamp set with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers! :)
I fussy cut out the images, once they were all set. I die cut a bunch of layers from white cardstock using the Land Borders and Sky Borders dies to create 'waves!' then I did some Distress Ink blending on them in Peacock Feathers and Blueprint Sketch! 


I cut out a speech bubble shape using the Stitched Duo Speech Bubble die and then used Dried Marigold and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Inks to add color behind the window! I finished off the card with some 
clear round drops - perfect for a water scene card, I think! 

My 2nd card uses a similar color palette!


I colored directly onto my Pineapple Delight stamps with the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers, and then die cut them out! I used the sunglasses from Newton's Summer Vacation (again!!) to jazz up the cute pineapple!! LOVE it! Ha!!!


The sentiment is from Dog Days of Summer, and I heat embossed it right onto the speech bubble cut out! I topped this card off with some Vintage Sheer Sequins mix - LOOOOOVE the sparkle those little guys add to the summery card! 



We are giving away TWO prizes - one prize pack from Studio Katia and one $25 store credit from Newton's Nook Designs!
