She created such a fun background she created with distress inks! I love the little fish floating in the water and the embossed white waves! The sequins add the perfect finishing sparkle! 

 More awesomeness with Samantha:

 Samantha used watercolors to create a fun background for the shark and also did white embossed waves. I love the black polka dot accents and the sentiment embossed in white on the black really pops!


I love how there are a lot of similarities in how Yukari and Samantha created their cards but achieved a totally different look!

We are featuring our new Shark Bites stamp set  and NEW Shark Bites Die Set all week on the NND blog, with two new fun projects each day! Today we have sharky inspiration from Stephanie and Kimberly!  

First, we are heading to the beach with this amazing beach scene by Stephanie:

Isn't it so cool how she added the big beach umbrella? It creates such a cute scene - but make sure if you head to this beach that you stay OUT of the water!  I also the fun, summery orange and teal color combo! 


Next is this awesome Snappy Birthday by Kimberly:
Shark Week Day 2 - Shark card by Kimberly Rendino | Shark Bites Stamp set and Die Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook
I love how Kimberly used the wave die and cut out waves from the blue base. Then she also cut them out some with light blue paper to fill in the negative space. What a fun way to use that die! I definitely wouldn't want to go swimming in this water! Too Many Sharks!!

It's SHARK WEEK!



----Everyone has heard of SHARK WEEK on the Discovery Channel, right? ----

Last year we did a week long Shark Week Celebration. We had SO MUCH FUN we decided we need to do it again this year! Our Design Team will be featuring our Shark Bites Stamp Set all week long! Plus we're having a sale - scroll down to the bottom of this post for details.

 NEW!  Shark Bites Die Set 
Shark Bites Die Set | Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #sharkweek
This die set coordinates with Shark Bites stamp set and has 8 dies 


Our Design Team will be sharing Sharky projects all week so I thought I'd get us started today with a this "Snappy Birthday" card that  I made:

Snappy Birthday card by Jennifer Jackson | Shark Bites Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #sharkweek
I used the fun image of the shark swimming towards you and cut him out with the new die! Then I added him to a circle with the "Snappy Birthday" sentiment. For the background I created an ombré anchor pattern with a stencil. Then I added some little strips of paper and washi and some blue twine to finish it off!


To make this week even more fun, we've put the our Shark Bites Stamp Set & the NEW Shark Bites die set on SALE!! 


Hope you enjoy our shark week celebration! Remember to stop back to the blog each day for some fresh sharky inspiration!!

Birthday Sprinkles Card by Yukari Yoshioka

Birthday Sprinkles Card by Yukari Yoshioka | Summer Scoops Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Rainbow birthday Sprinkles!! 

Today we have this YUMMY ice cream treat card by Yukari using our Summer Scoops stamp set.  I love how she created a gorgeous rainbow background for her card and then added three fun ice cream images from the set, fussy cutting them out and layering them over a scalloped oval frame. The "Happy Birthday with Sprinkles on Top" sentiment, embossed in white on black cardstock really pops off too!  

Thanks so much to Yukari for the bright and colorful card  today! You can head over to Yukari's blog, Handmade by Yuki and see more details about her project - and make sure to say hello!
