Newton Catches a Wave with Samantha Mann

Kitty Beach Card by Samantha Mann for Newton's Nook Designs | Newton's Summer Vacation Cat Stamp Set

Gorgeous Beach scene by Samantha Mann! 

Today I'm sharing this super fun card by Samantha Mann! Isn't it beautiful? I just love the fun wave background she created! It goes PURRfectly with our Newton and sandcastle image from the new Newton's Summer Vacation Stamp set! She also used the cute little "wish you were here" sentiment in the corner - which is also part of that same stamp set. I don't know about you - but I definitely wish I WAS there - looks like that kitty is having a great time on that beautiful beach!

Anniversary Blog Hop with Newton's Nook Designs!

This is our second post for today - to see blog hop winners, scroll down or click here. Newton's Nook Designs - Anniversary Blog Hop | July 2014

Newton’s Nook Designs is so excited to be celebrating our One Year Anniversary - one whole year of getting our paws inky! I remember how excited I was when our first four sets came in the mail about one year ago (see my photo below) - Now we have 33 designs in our shop! It's been an AMAZING year - filled with happiness, stress, excitement, little sleep and lots of learning! 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!

Newton's Nook Designs - Newton,  Jennifer and Jeff

To celebrate, we have a blog hop with our brand new design team and we've invited some very special guests to our hop along  - we have asked back 3 of our original and super talented design team members - Jennifer Ingle, Emily Leiphart, and Jocelyn Olson, AND the Simon Says Stamp blog! How cool is that? Make sure to scroll down to the end of the post to see the whole list!

Summer Kitty card by Jennifer Jackson | Newton's Nook Designs | Newton's Summer Vacation Cat Stamp


For our stop on the hop, I created a card featuring Newton, our namesake and fan favorite! I stamped the kitty on the inner tube from our new Newton's Summer Vacation stamp set and colored him with copics. Then I cut a circle out of this fun paper that looks sort of like waves. I added on a bit of orange polka-dot paper, some chevron ribbon and twine to dress it up. And some homemade enamel dots to finish it off!

This set is for sale now, along with the rest of our July release at  Newton's Nook Designs online shop today! You can also find our release at Simon Says Stamp !
