Unicorn Kitties Card by October Guest Designer Waleska Galindo




Hello Friends Waleska here with my Monday Blog Post as the October Guest Designer!!! I hope you have a great starting week!!  For today's card I gave halloween cards a rest and I used the Newton´s Costume Party Stamp Set for a non halloween card, I dress up Newton as a beautiful unicorn for a card ready to cheer up someone in need!!!

CARD DETAILS:

I used Oxide Inks for the background in colors Worn Lipstick, Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade, Cracked Pistachio, Broken China and Wilted Violet,  I put all the colors on a Ranger Mat and I added a little water, I started smooshing a white card base beginning with the light colors until I smooshed all of the them to create a very colorful background.

I die cut the rainbow and color it with the same Oxide colors from the card base to unify the design, I stamped, cut and color three cats and adhere the unicorn horns to them.  I used 3D foam to raised the cats and cloud.  Finally I added the sentiment and clear sequins as embellishments.

Have a wonderful week!


3rd Annual Cat Lovers Blog Hop!

3rd Annual Cat Lovers Blog Hop!

3rd Annual Cat Lovers Hop

This week is the 3rd Annual Cat Lovers Hop! This hop is so fun and since the theme is CATS we knew we HAD to play along! To participate in this blog hop, you just have to create a project that features a cat and upload it to the post on Her Peaceful Garden! You totally should play along if you can since there are some really awesome sponsors and prizes, including one from us at Newton's Nook Designs

Here's what I created:
3rd Annual Cat Lovers Blog Hop! Card by Jennifer Jackson using Newton Rides West Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

I've been trying to get a better stash of birthday cards so today I created one using our Newton Rides West Stamp Set. This Western theme on this set is perfect for creating cards for girls and guys both but today I decided to create a more feminine card using pinks! I started out by stamping the image of the kitty in the boot and colored a pink cowboy (or cowgirl) boot using zig clean color watercolor markers. I also colored a lime green cactus image and cut both of them out using the coordinating Newton Rides West Die Set. I also created a cute little scene for the kitty using our Land Borders Die Set to create some grass and a hill too! This die set is a MUST HAVE for creating scenes. I use it all the time! 

3rd Annual Cat Lovers Blog Hop! Card by Jennifer Jackson using Newton Rides West Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

I added the "WANTED" and "for celebrating another birthday" sentiments above the hill, also from the Newton Rides West Stamp Set. If you didn't need a birthday card you could use the "for being awesome" sentiment that's also included in this set.

To finish off the card I mounted it on some pink gingham paper and then on a pink cardstock panel and added a bit of twine for a finishing touch! I love how this turned out!

If you haven't seen this set yet, here's an image of it: 
You can find it for sale here: Newton Rides West

I hope you will play along with the Cat Lovers Hop!  I know Newton, our sweet kitty, definitely approves of this hop!! Have you met Newton yet? If you haven't, here's a quick pic of him! He's the inspiration for many of our cat themed stamps and the namesake of our company!  You have until Oct 28th to link up at Her Peaceful Garden for a chance to win prizes!
