We Go Together Card by January Guest Designer Kevin Bray




Hi, guys! It's Kevin back with another card for NND! Today I decided to use the cutest little rabbit from the Sweater Weather stamp set for a fun wintery Valentine. Check it out!


I cut a mask using a heart die and inked on some Distress Inks using some soft colors. Then I Copic colored the sweet bunny from Sweater Weather. His little sweater features a snowflake but I masked it off and added one of the hearts instead to better suit a Valentine's Day card. I completed it with a gray sentiment strip.

Thanks for stopping by and I will see you next week for my last card as this month's guest designer!

 - Kevin

New Inky Paws Challenge #39!

Heart Themed Challenge!

Today is the start of a a NEW inky paws challenge over on the Inky Paws Challenge Blog! The current challenge is a theme challenge and theme is to use a heart in your project, along with some NND images:


 I wanted to play along so here's what I created:

New Inky Paws Challenge #39 | Dog Valentine card by Jennifer Jackson | Darling Duos Stamp set & Darling Hearts die set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook
I created a cute doggie Valentine card using our Darling Duos stamp set!  I stamped the doggie duo on watercolor paper and colored them using inktense pencils and a water brush. Then I trimmed them out using the coordinating Darling Hearts Die set.  I also stamped the image of the heart with the paw print in bright red from the Darling Duos stamp set and cut that out with the Darling Hearts Die set

New Inky Paws Challenge #39 | Dog Valentine card by Jennifer Jackson | Darling Duos Stamp set & Darling Hearts die set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

To make the card,  I added some fun pattern paper and a stripe of black and white heart washi tape to a kraft card base.  I stamped the "sweet friend" sentiment, also from the Darling Duos stamp set in black. I added on the fun images and some red twine! 

Hope you enjoyed this project. You can play along with this inky paws challenge until Jan. 27th! Just use NND stamps and a heart on your card. Find details on the Inky Paws Challenge blog.

Thanks for Owl You Do Card by Amanda Bodine

Thanks for Owl You Do Card by Amanda Bodine | What a Hoot Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Adorable Owls!

Hello and Happy Friday! I hope you've been enjoying all the posts this week from our NEW team members! Today we have an adorable owl Valentine card by Amanda! She used those sweet owls from our What a Hoot stamp set and colored them in fun shades of pink! She added them onto a branch that she had cut out using the coordinating What a Hoot Die Set. Isn't it fun how you can use the branch and leaves from this set without stamping the images first? They create a fun shape on their own! Amanda also created a really fun background for this owl couple, using shades of red a bit heart too! The whole card has such a fun monochromatic feel with all the reds and pinks! She also added on the "thanks for owl you do" sentiment from the What a Hoot stamp set! Such an adorable card!

Thanks for the super cute card today, Amanda! To see more of her beautiful coloring and projects, visit Amanda over at her blog,  RutabagaPie Designs!
