Newton's Nook Designs 5 YEAR Celebration Blog Hop!



Newton’s Nook Designs is so excited to be celebrating our FIVE Year Anniversary
- WOW - That's five whole years of getting our 
paws inky!

I remember how excited I was when our first four sets came in the mail over five years ago! Now we have over 350 products in our shop! It's been an Incredible journey so far- filled with happiness, stress, lots of excitement and very little sleep! Here are a few behind the scenes photos from this last year of Jeff and I and our little helpers, Newton and Hobbes!
5 Year celebration | Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook
We want to take a minute to say THANK YOU to all our fans, designers and customers who helped make it happen! We are so happy to be here and we can't wait to see what the next year brings!

To celebrate, we have a blog hop and we've invited some very special guests to our hop along with us today! Make sure to scroll down to the end of the post to see the whole list and leave them some sweet comments for a chance to win prizes (details at the end of this post)

Every stop on the hop is sharing cards made with our new products and I made a card to share today too!
 Flip-Flop Card by Jennifer Jackson | Flip-Flop Life Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

For my card today I used our new 2x3 sized Flip-Flop Life Stamp Set! Those adorable little flip-flops are so fun to color in bright colors! I created two pair for my card and cut them out using the coordinating Flip-Flop Life Die Set.  

 Flip-Flop Card by Jennifer Jackson | Flip-Flop Life Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

For my card base I cut out layers of sand using our Land Borders Die Set with kraft cardstock. For the water, I used our Waves Stencil with some embossing paste that I tinted blue for a tone-on-tone effect! I layered it all onto the card and added the sentiment from the Flip-Flop Life Stamp Set, embossed in white on a banner cut out using our Frames & Flags Die Set.
