Cat and Mouse! Cards by Maria Russell

Cat Birthday Card by Maria Russell | Newton's Birthday Trio Stamp Set and Balloons Stencil by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook


Cat and Mouse! Cards by Maria!

Today we have TWO adorable cards to share that were created by Maria using some of our new goodies! For her first card she used the cute birthday kitties from the Newton's Birthday Trio Stamp Set. She colored the kitties so beautifully and added colors to the thought bubbles as well! She cut the image out using the coordinating Newton's Birthday Trio Die Set too.

For her second card today Maria features a cute mouse from our new Garden Mice Stamp Set. She colored the image with lovey soft pastels and cut it out using the coordinating Garden Mice Die Set to add it to her card. For the card she used an embossing folder to add a tree and also added some clouds from the Newton Scoots By Stamp Set into the sky. For the grass border across the bottom she used our Land Borders Die Set. She also added in a couple of little leafy branches using our Deer Friend Stamp Set. She finished it off by adding a strip of rainbow washi tape up the side. Check out the close-up below to see her lovely coloring!

You Matter a Whole Bunch Card by March Guest Designer Jane Clark



Hi there, Miss Jane here again. I can't believe this is my third card already for March, it's going too quickly for me! I'm having too much fun playing with these gorgeous stamps, and I want to share so much more!!

Anyway, today's card is a simply one, well it is for me, I find making simple cards the hardest! I really wanted this card to be all about the Blooming Botanicals image. I did the silly thing of looking at what the Design Team members have created using this set, I was quite daunted, they're all so gorgeous, what else could I possibly create and make look different?! So the idea of making a card in soft pastels tones sprung to mind!

Floral Card by March Guest Designer Jane Clark | Blooming Botanicals Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs #ewtonsnook #handmade

I stamped the Newton's Nook Designs Blooming Botanicals floral image on smooth white card with VersaMark ink, seriously, I could've stopped right there!! The watermark design left on the white card was just stunning, do I keep it just like that? No, I couldn't do that, I had that pastel colour idea in my head, so I proceeded and applied soft pink, yellow and purple chalks over the stamped VersaMark image (if you haven't got chalks then you could use Pan Pastels instead). I didn't apply the chalks right to the edges of the card, I wanted a gradual shaded effect so the centre part of the design would be the main focus.

Floral Card by March Guest Designer Jane Clark | Blooming Botanicals Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs #ewtonsnook #handmade

All the card needed then, was a sentiment stamped in black ink, a few sequins and a couple of strips of thin silver sparkly washi tape, Viola! 

Just think of all the colour combinations!! Greens, blues, purples, oh be still my heart! This is going to be a very repeated card design!

Thanks for checking my card out, now go and create!
