Paw-some Birthday Wishes Card by Samantha Mann

Paw-some Birthday Wishes Card by Samantha Mann | Fabulous Frenchies Stamp Set and Clouds Stencil by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

Have a Paw-some Birthday!

This birthday card by Samantha couldn't get any cuter! She created this sweet birthday greeting featuring that cute pup from our Fabulous Frenchies Stamp Set. She colored the sweet pup and added the cute hat and a trio of balloons, also from the same set. She cut all the images out using the coordinating Fabulous Frenchies Die Set to layer onto her card. For the card she created a fun pink and orange sky of clouds using our Clouds Stencil with Picked Raspberry and Squeezed Lemonade distress inks. Isn't it neat how she masked off and only stenciled on the top part of the card, leaving a perfect spot for the birthday sentiment under the pup. She also used some of the birthday images from the set to create a fun black and white pattern that she used along the right side of the card. Such a fun detail! 

This card by Sam would be perfect to send to a dog lover! To say hello to Sam and see more of her awesome creations you can visit Sam over on her blog, Sam's Scrap Candy!

Hoppy Easter Folding Scene Card by Amanda Wilcox

Hoppy Easter Wiper Surprise Card by Amanda Wilcox | Hop Into Spring Stamp Set, Land Borders Die Set, Clouds Stencil and Sky Scene Builder Die Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

Hoppy Easter!

Today we are sharing a fun interactive card by Amanda that is perfect for a special Easter greeting! She created this sweet Spring scene featuring two of the bunnies from our new Hop Into Spring Stamp Set. She stamped the images in gray ink to give them soft edges and colored them using watercolors for a soft look. She cut the images out using the coordinating Hop Into Spring Die Set. The scene has cuts and folds so that it opens up to reveal a larger scene (this technique is called a wiper surprise card).

Here is a photo of the card open:

The scene was created using our Land Borders Die Set for the hill and grass layers. The clouds in the sky were added using our Clouds Stencil and the sun was die cut out using our new Sky Scene Builders Die Set. The little ducky and flowers are from the Newton's Rain Boots Stamp Set and add on even more cuteness!

The sentiment was added above the bunny with the daffodil using a bubble from our Speech Bubbles Die Set to hold it above his head.

Here are a couple of close-ups so you can see all the gorgeous details:

We're the Perfect Mix Card by February Guest Designer Lori U'ren

Hello Crafty Friends!

It's Lori here today with my last post as NND February Guest Designer! 
I have really enjoyed myself this month with these adorable stamp sets, just so much fun!

Today I'm using the Love Quarry Stamp Set, which I created as a masculine card! Perfect for the man in your life and not just for Valentine's Day!
We're the Perfect Mix Card by February Guest Designer Lori U'ren | Love Quarry Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

This is such a fun stamp and I got a kick out of this sentiment that went along with the cement truck!

I began my card by stamping the images on #80 Neenah Desert Storm cardstock using Hero Arts Intense Black ink. I love how Copic coloring looks on this cardstock. After coloring the images I outlined them with a W4 and W3 Copic marker. 

We're the Perfect Mix Card by February Guest Designer Lori U'ren | Love Quarry Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

I die cut my panel with a rectangle die and thought that adding layers would give the card some visual interest. So I die cut a larger navy blue panel and an even larger panel with more of the Neenah Desert Storm. I adhered the first two panels using liquid glue, one on top of the other onto a navy blue A2 sized card base. I popped up the Copic colored panel with foam tape and wrapped orange twine around the panel and tied a bow. This is the twine we receive in our orders from NND.

We're the Perfect Mix Card by February Guest Designer Lori U'ren | Love Quarry Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

To finished my card I added white highlights with a Gelly Roll pen and a little shimmer with a Nuvo Shimmer pen. And I found matching enamel dots in my stash which made me so happy! 

I always try to decorate the inside of card, so I die cut another piece of the Neenah Desert Storm, stamped the three cone images, then adhered it on the inside of the card base. And now my card is complete, I love the way this card turned out!

We're the Perfect Mix Card by February Guest Designer Lori U'ren | Love Quarry Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

I would like to thank Newton's Nook for inviting me to guest Design for February, I really had a ton of fun! 

Thanks for stopping by today and have an awesome Monday,
