Wanted Interactive Birthday Card by Ellen Haxelmans

Hello and Happy Friday! Today we have another fun interactive card by Ellen. For this project she's featuring Newton as a cowboy from our Newton Rides West Stamp Set on a mini scene that opens up from the front of the card.

Read on for details on how she created this fun card!
Creating the scene:
Wanted! Cowboy Kitty Interactive Birthday Card by Ellen Haxelmans | Newton Rides West Stamp Set and Argyle Stencil Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade
  • Photo 1 (left): On the inside I wanted to create a little scene, so I created a background. This was made with a rectangular die and Sea Borders Die Set. The paper piece was colored with Tumbled Glass and for the hill the “Antique Linen” and “Vintage Photo” Distress ink.
  • Photo 2 (center): To get a dreamy blue sky some water, white and blue ink was sprinkled on top.
  • Photo 3 (right): As last step I colored the images with Copic Markers (the cat is from the Newton Rides West Stamp Set  and the gifts are from the Christmas Haul Stamp Set with Copic Markers. Once the images were colored I cut the out using the coordinating Christmas Haul Die Set and Newton Rides West Die Set

    Here are the colors I used:
    • The cat: W5, W4, W3, W2, W1, W0 and C5, C4, C3, C2 Stripes BV29
    • Brown: E37, E35, E33, E31
    • Light Green: YG06, YG03, YG01, YG00
    • Dark Green: G07, G05
    • Blue: B29, B18, B16
    • Pink: RV13 and R11

Creating the interactive piece:Wanted! Cowboy Kitty Interactive Birthday Card by Ellen Haxelmans | Newton Rides West Stamp Set and Argyle Stencil Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade
  • Photo 1 (left): I really wanted to create a card with an interactive piece that opened. Therefore I thought of using the 2nd frame die from the Framework Die Set. To focus on the little interactive piece, a pattern was added. For that pattern I used the Argyle Stencil Set.
  • Photo 2 (center): After the base was created I started the with the interactive pice. The size of the little piece is 3.35 inch (13,6 cm) x 2.87 inch (7,3 cm). When you did cut it out you can fold it in three piece like an accordion. The next thing was to find some sentiments and add it to the piece with embossing powder. The sentiments come from the Newton Rides West Stamp Set and the Newton's Birthday Bash Stamp Set.
  • Photo 3 (right)For the front I used the smaller illustrated stamps from the Newton Rides West Stamp Set set and created my own cowboy pattern.

Being a Unicorn

Today have an awesome unicorn card by Samantha! She created this fun card using that cute unicorn image from our Believe in Unicorns Stamp Set. She colored the unicorn using a rainbow of fun vibrant colors for the mane and tail. Then she cut out the unicorn and some little clouds using the coordinating Believe in Unicorns Die Set. For her card she inked up a lovely sky in rich purple using distress inks. She also added stacks of clouds along the bottom using our Sky Borders Die Set. She added the sentiment, also from the Believe in Unicorns Stamp Set in the lower corner of the clouds. 

This card also has a fun bit of movement to it. That unicorn leaps out from the clouds on a fun slider. What a cooly way to make this awesome card even more fun! Here's a close up:

That's How We Roll Card by February Guest Designer Jennifer Dove


Flamingos, bright cheery, retro, black and pink...need I say more? This is my second card using the  Cozy Campers Stamp Set from Newton's Nook Designs. When I think retro campers all the things I imagine are in this set! I love how you can use one set to get so many different styles of cards. You can see my other card HERE.

That's How We Roll Card by February Guest Designer Jennifer Dove | Cozy Campers Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

This warm and inviting camper was just asking to be colored in fun retro colors don't you think? I random stamped the background with a darker pink stamp pad and then colored in all the hearts and Flamingos with [R81]. I love creating my own background paper when the sets give smaller images to stamp. It was a huge bummer to cover so much of it up, but it just worked out that way for this card. I also used some of the fun frame dies from the Framework Die Set. What a great versatile die set. I know I will get a lot of use beyond just my Guest DT spot...it is now in my favorite-die pile. I hope you enjoyed the use of the Cozy Campers Stamp Set this month.

Look out for more inspiration using the Hedgehog Hollow set next week.
