More fun with Hanging Around

Monkey Card by Jennifer Jackson | Hanging Around Stamp Set | Newton's Nook Designs

More fun with Hanging Around
Today I'm sharing a couple more fun cards with our new Hanging Around Stamp set! This first card uses both our new sets. I used the Monkey from our Hanging Around Stamp set along with the "Happy" and "birthday" from our Simply Sentimental set. I created a cute little banner and used the Banner stamp from the Sweet Summer Set to create the little flags. I created a fun watercolor swash behind him with some pearlescent watercolors - it's hard to tell in photo but they have a nice shimmer in real life. I just love how this turned out!

For the next card I used the squirrels from the Hanging Around Stamp set - I stamped the squirrels first, then masked them off and stamped the line over them. Then I added the "hang in there" to make it look like it's attached to the line - Isn't it cool how clear stamps allow you to do stuff like that?

This card was so fun to make. I also added some washi tape and bakers twine to the bottom and rounded the corners!

You're cool - Penguin Card

You're cool Penguin Card by Jennifer Jackson using Wild Child stamp set | Newton's Nook Designs

Chill out with this fun card today!

Since it's August, it's HOT where I live right now - in the Midwest USA -  so I thought it would be fun to cool things off with a cute penguin card today!  I used our cute little penguin mom and chick from our Wild Child stamp set to create this cutie! I stamped them with black and then colored them with Inktense colored pencils and added a wee bit of water to give them that light watercolored look. then I punched them out with a giant circle punch that I have and added them onto this card. I had some fun blue paper that I thought matched them just right and I also added some burlap - because everything is better with burlap- LOL! the "you're cool" sentiment is also from the same Wild Child stamp set!  This set with the baby animals and moms is so adorable - I'm definitely going to keep using this set for baby and kid birthday cards! 


If it's hot where you live, hope this helped you feel a little cooler today!
