Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop
Today I'm playing along with the very fun Coffee Lovers blog hop.
There are going to be TONS of fun prizes too - 
including a $15 store credit from us at Newton's Nook Designs! 
You can head over to the Coffee Lovers Blog for more details on how to play along! 

Here's what I created:

 Cat card with Coffee by Jennifer Jackson for Coffee Lovers Blog hop | Stamps by Newton's Nook Designs

I thought I'd use our fun Love à la Carte Set since it has an image of a Coffee Cup with some sugar - but I really wanted to use a kitty too so I pulled out the simple cat image from Newton's Antics! I stamped and colored the kitty image directly onto the cardstock but I used a scrap piece to color the coffee image and then I fussy cut it out. I thought that I would want to put the cup in front of the cat but I ended up putting the cut next to him instead and adding some washi tape.  It kind of looks like a diner table, don't you think? Then I grabbed the "loves mew" sentiment from the Newton's Antics stamp set and added it curved above the coffee.

True story - our real kitty, Newton, DOES LOVE COFFEE! I can't leave it unguarded or he will come stick his paw into the mug and then lick it! Silly kitty!

Sparkly Thinking of You card by Danielle Pandeline!

Sparkly Thinking of You card by Danielle Pandeline! Stamps by Newton's Nook Designs

Sparkly Spring Florals! 

This lovely sparkly spring card by Danielle was just what I needed this week! It's been so cold and dreary here and this reminds me that spring is just around the corner! Danielle used the teeny tiny flowers and leaves from the Versatile Vases stamp set to create this adorable little card! I love the addition of the brads in the centers for the pink flowers! I have a such a huge collection of brads and hardly ever remember to use them! !The cute little "thinking of you" sentiment is also from the Versatile Vases stamp set.

Thanks so much Danielle for making us think of spring today! Make sure you head over to Danielle's blog, GirlRacerScrap to see more of her work and say hello!

Hi Newton! Card by Jess Moyer

Cat looking through Window Card by Jess Moyer | Newton's Nook Designs Stamps

Newton wishing for spring...

This card by Jess Moyer is quite fitting. Right now in cold Wisconsin, the REAL Newton is getting very stir crazy and wanted to have the windows open so he can hear the birds and get fresh air but it's just too cold. I imagine the stamped Newton on this card is feeling the same way - he wants to go outside and see that birdie! 

For this card Jess used the kitty from the Naughty Newton stamp set and the birdie outside is from Campfire Tails  and the clouds and "hi" sentiment are from Hanging Around

Here's a video Jess created- check it out to see how to make this card:

I Love You from A to (rainbow) Zebra by Crafty Math-Chick

I Love You from A to (rainbow!) Zebra by Crafty Math-Chick | Wild About Zoo Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs!

Rainbow Stripes!

Today I'm sharing this fun and whimsical rainbow Zebra card by Crafty Math-Chick! The zebra in our Wild About Zoo stamp set made her think of  "Fruit Stripe" gum - do you remember that gum? I do - it had the cutest colored stripes on the pieces! She was inspired to make a zebra with colored stripes like on the gum packet! What a fun idea!

She inspired me to look up the ad - I totally remember this one - anyone else?




Thanks, Crafty Math-Chick for the fun rainbow card today!

Guest Designer Angel Rivera | Newton's Nook Designs

Sorry! Kitty Card 

Today I'm sharing a fun card by our special Guest Angel Rivera! Angel decided to play along with our Inky Paws Challenge and created this cute ONE LAYER card using the kitty from the Naughty Newton Stamp Set.  I love the coloring of the white kitty on the Kraft colored card stock - what a fun look. And the fun scored lines give some nice dimension to a one-layered card!
