Fresh Squeezed Lemonade card by Jennifer Jackson

Fresh Squeezed Lemonade card by Jennifer Jackson | Freshly Squeezed stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Fresh Squeezed Lemonade!

Do you love lemonade? To me, lemonade is a symbol of everything summer! I have been having a ton of fun with the cute critters in our new Freshly Squeezed stamp set! For this card, I colored the image of Lily, our bunny, holding a pitcher of lemonade with watercolor markers. Then I fussy cut her out so I could add her onto my card with a dimensional. I also stamped the "Fresh Squeezed" lemon and hand cut it out to put with her. 

I decided to stick with the yellow and gray color theme and added on some washi tape and pattern paper scraps from my stash to a white card base. Then, to add a bit of fun, I did some watercolor splatters on background paper with shades of yellow. I finished the card off with a bit of yellow and white striped twine! I really love how this came together! I think next time it would be fun to try one with yellow and pink for pink lemonade!

Thank You Pineapple Card by Danielle Pandeline

Thank You Pineapple Card by Danielle Pandeline | Pineapple Delight Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Pineapple Thank you!!

Today we have a fun thank you card by Danielle using our Pineapple Delight stamp set!  She stamped the pineapples in fun bright yellow and lime green to make a fun background and then added a fun pink colored one in front! She used the coordinating Pineapple Delight die set to cut it out and added the "thank you" sentiment, also from the Pineapple Delight stamp set.  I love the fun bold colors she used on this! So perfect for the tasty tropical fruit! This thank you will definitely make the recipient smile!

Mahalo Card by Lydia Evans

Mahalo Card by Lydia Evans | Hibiscus Die set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook


Today we are sharing a gorgeous hibiscus card by Lydia! She die cut all those hibiscus flowers using our new Hibiscus Die Set! It's so beautiful how she layered all the white ones against the white background. What a great way to add some texture to a card. Then she layered two more flowers and leaves in awesome bright summer colors! Don't they just pop off the page? She added in the "Mahalo" sentiment from the Aloha Newton Stamp set.

You're My Sweet Tea Card by Crafty Math Chick

You're My Sweet Tea Card by Crafty Math Chick | Freshly Squeezed stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Lovely Owl Card!

Today Crafty Math-Chick combined several of our fun stamp sets to create this adorable Sweet Tea card! She used the sweet little jar of tea from the NEW Freshly Squeezed stamp set. Then she made a super cute custom sentiment combining the "you're my" from the Love à la Carte stamp set and the "Sweet Tea" from the Freshly Squeezed stamp set. Isn't that so fun? She also created a fun lemony background combining the little lemons from the Freshly Squeezed stamp set with the big lemon slice from the Sweet Summer stamp set! I love how creatively she mixed all these products!

Thank you, Crafty Math-Chick, for the fun inspiration today! To see moe details and other projects, you can visit her blog, Canines & Card Designs.

Kitty in Paradise card by Taheerah Atchia | Aloha Newton Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Watercolor Paradise card by Taheerah!

Today we have the awesomely talented Taheerah Atchia as our special guest! We are such huge fans of her work and love to share it on our blog! Today she's playing with some of the sets from our recent July release! 

She created this sweet beach card using the image of the kitty in the hammock from our new Aloha Newton stamp set to create this adorable tropical card. It's so pretty how she did loose watercoloring over the image. It really has such a soft and pretty beachy look! She added on the "Find your Paradise" sentiment from the Paradise Palms stamp set, which was also from our latest release. I love how you can mix and match the sentiments from different sets and they all look lovely together!

    Summer kitties on the beach card by Naki Rager | Newton's Summer Vacation & Aloha Newton stamp sets by Newton's Nook Deisgns
    Naki created an awesome beach scene combining two or our Newton summer sets. The kitty in the hammock and tropical drink are from the new Aloha Newton stamp set and the kitty with the sandcastle and pail are from the Newton's Summer Vacation stamp set. 

    Summer watercolor palm tree card by Samantha  Mann | Paradise Palms stamp set by Newton's Nook Deisgns
    Samantha created an awesome watercolor beach scene on her card. She used distress markers to ink up the palm tree  from our Paradise Palms stamp set and watercolored over the top! The "summer lovin'" sentiment is from the new Dog Days of Summer Stamp set. 

    Summer watercolor Kitty with Hibiscus card by Stephanie Muzzulin | Aloha Newton stamp set by Newton's Nook Deisgns
    Stephanie created this awesome beach card! She used bright watercolors to color the kitty from the new Aloha Newton stamp set! She also added in the tiny die cut hibiscus and leaf from the Tiki Time stamp set! Such a perfect summery combo!  

    Summer Tiki card by Jess Gerstner | Tiki Time stamp set by Newton's Nook Deisgns
    What says summer more than a tiki drink? Jess used a whole crew of tiki faces  from our new Tiki Time stamp set across the bottom of her card! I love that pretty sky she put behind them! 

    Summer Hibiscus Earrings by Larissa Heskett | Hibiscus die set by Newton's Nook Deisgns
    Larissa created some beautiful summer earrings using the Hibiscus die set and shrink plastic! What a fun idea! These turned out amazing! She created those cool backer cards for them using the frame from the Garden Starter stamp set! 

    Summer dog and ice cream card by Jennifer Jackson | Dog Days of Summer Stamp set by Newton's Nook Deisgns
    I had fun playing along this month too! I created a dog card using the pup and ice cream from our new Dog Days of Summer Stamp stamp set.  I made a simple card, just adding a sentiment and some washi and flags ups this side using paper scraps! I thought it needed a little bling so I added on a big button!

    Adventure Awaits Semi-Liquid Shaker by Samantha Mann

    Adventure Awaits Semi-Liquid Shaker by Samantha Mann | Message in a Bottle stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

    Ship in a bottle with a water effect!

    Today we have a crazy cool card by Samantha using the ship in a bottle from the Message in a Bottle stamp set. She created an awesome little scene, die cutting out the bottle shape with the Message in a Bottle Die Set. Then made a shaker card with it - but this is no ordinary shaker, she added in hair gel to make a shaker that looks like it's filled with water!  Isn't that the COOLEST? She finished it off with the "Adventure Awaits" sentiment, also from the Message in a Bottle stamp set.


    Thank you Samantha for the super cool inspiration today! To say hello to Samantha and see more of her awesome creations, you can visit Samantha's Blog, Sam's Scrap Candy!
