Happy Haunts Shaker Card by Danielle Pandeline | Pick-a-Pumpkin stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #pumpkin

Pumpkin Shaker card!

Con you believe it's October? That means that Halloween is just around the corner! I love this fun triple pumpkin shaker card by Danielle -- he he he  - that sounds like the name of a coffee, doesn't it? Danielle used our fun new Pick-a-Pumpkin die set to cut out those fun pumpkins. I love the face added to the center one! She also added a fun tag with the "happy haunts" sentiment from our Spooky Street stamp set. This makes me excited for Halloween!

Happy Birthday Card by Crafty Math-Chick

Happy Birthday Card by Crafty Math-Chick | Winged Wishes Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs

Birthday Wishes!

Today I'm sharing this fun shiny birthday card by Crafty Math-Chick! She combined a couple of our essential sentiment sets to create this elegant birthday card. The sweet little birds and the "birthday" stamp are from the Winged Wishes stamp set and the "happy" sentiment is from the Holiday Wishes stamp set. Isn't it cool how these two set coordinate so perfectly together? I love how she embossed them in white on the dark colored cardstock and created a fun metallic border!

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

Caring Hearts Card Drive Sponsor

Today we are posting about the Caring Hearts Card Drive! This card drive is organized by Vera Yates & Jennifer McGuire with the goal to collect holiday cards for the elderly that lives in nursing home. During this time many of the elderly who lives in nursing homes would really feel the loneliness or missing their family. Wouldn't it be so awesome if we can bring a smile to their face & brighten their holiday season simply by sharing our love of card making? A simple gesture to let them know that they are not forgotten.

Cat & Snowman Christmas card by Jennifer Jackson | Newton's Curious Christmas Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs

Since this blog hop is all about holiday cards I wanted to share a fun Holiday card today using our Newton's Curious Christmas stamp set. I used the image of the cute kitty, peeking around the snowman at the little bird! I just love this image - it's so fun to color. I colored it with distress markers and a water brush. Then I added on the "merry and bright" sentiments from our Holiday Wishes stamp set. This set is such an essential holiday set because you can mix and match so many fun sentiments!

To create the card, I used a kraft colored cardstock base, added a panel of embossed light green paper and some gold striped washi tape. I added on a kraft colored doiley tucked behind the image and then finished it off with some red twine and a button. I love how this turned out!

Fall Pumpkin Thank You Card

Fall Pumpkin Thank You Card by Jennifer Jackson | Pick-a-Pumpkin Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #pumpkin

Fall Pumpkins!

Today I'm sharing this fun fall pumpkin card I created using our new Pick-a-Pumpkin Stamp set and dies. This set is so adorable and it's so fun to make tons of little pumpkins and cut them out with the Pick-a-Pumpkin die set!  For this card I stamped three of the pumpkins in fall colors with a pop of aqua blue and cut them out with the  Pick-a-Pumpkin die set. I also cut out stems using the die set.

Fall Pumpkin Thank You Card by Jennifer Jackson | Pick-a-Pumpkin Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #pumpkin

Then I created a fun orange background for them using distress inks. I added on some bakers twine and lace and mounted it on a brown cardstock piece. Then For the card base I chose a light yellow cardstock and added on some fun fall plaid paper. I also tucked in a kraft colored doily behind the pumpkins! This card would be so prefect to send in the fall as a thank-you!
