Cozy Cats & Coffee Card by Zsofia Molnar

Cozy Cats and Coffee Card by Zsofia Molnar | Newton's Antics Stamp Set, Time for Coffee Stamp Set, Sky Borders Die Set and Coffee House Stories Paper Pad by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

Cozy Kitties and Coffee!

Today we are sharing a cozy card by Zsofia with two of our favorite things: Coffee and Kitties! For this sweet card she combined our Newton's Antics and Time for Coffee stamp sets! What a purr-fect pairing!

She stamped and colored the image of the two cozy kitties, along with two balls of yard and a toy mouse from our Newton's Antics Stamp Set. She colored the kitties in soft grays and chose teal for the yarn and pink for the mouse. Next, she stamped the image of the french press and two coffee mugs from the Time for Coffee Stamp Set. She matched the colors on the mugs to the mouse and added teal to the top and handle of the french press to coordinate with the yarn. Such sweet colors! All the images were cut out using the coordinating Newton's Antics Die Set and Time for Coffee Die Set.

For her card, she cut a strip of white to match the width of the card and arranged all the die cut elements on top, leaving room on the right side for the sentiment, stamped in teal from the Time for Coffee Stamp Set. She added a teal scalloped border along the top and bottom, using our Sky Borders Die Set

Bah HumPUG Card by Samantha Mann + Blog Hop Winners!

Bah Humpug Card by Samantha Mann | Pug Hugs Stamp Set, Light Strings Stencil Set and Essential Alphabet Die Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

Bah HumPUG!

Today we have a grumpy pug Holiday card by Samantha that is sure to make you giggle! 

For this funny card, Samantha used the cute pug from our  Pug Hugs Stamp Set. She colored in shades of brown and added a bright red nose and pink cheeks! So cute! She used the coordinating Pug Hugs Die Set to cut the image out before adding it to her card. She also added a Santa hat onto the pugs head using the hat stamp from the Newton's Christmas Kittens Stamp Set and cutting it out with the coordinating Newton's Christmas Kittens Die Set. She added a tiny pom pom onto the hat for a fun and cheerful detail!

For the background, she created a gorgeous background of gold lights using our Light Strings Stencil Set over a blue inked background. This stencil is two layers so it makes using two colors easy. For the layer with the light bulbs she used deco foil transfer gel over the stencil to apply gold foil to the light bulbs!  Then she lined up the second stencil with the light strings and used white texture paste! What a beautiful effect!

For the sentiment, she used letters from our Essential Alphabet Die Set to spell out "BAH HUMPUG" and cut it out of the background panel. She then layered it over a piece of black cardstock so the letters really pop through! So fun! 

We hope this card has made you smile today! To say hello to Sam and see more of her amazing creations you can visit Sam over on her blog, Sam's Scrap Candy!

Santa Paws is Coming! Card by Jennifer Jackson | Meowy Christmas Paper Pad, Framework Die Set, Circle Frames Die Set and Newton's Stocking Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

Today I created this fun card using our new Meowy Christmas Paper Pad. If you didn't know, I am the creator at Newton's Nook Designs, and I design all the products in our shop. I have been wanting to create papers for a long time and I am super excited about adding these paper pads to our product line! I had so much fun creating all these fun patterns using Newton and Christmas colors! 

For my card today, I wanted to showcase some of these fun prints together. So I cut them into long strips and adhered them to a card front sized panel. Then I used our Framework Die Set to trim out the panel, giving it a fun postage edge. 

Next, I  used the sentiment "Santa Paws is coming" from our Newton's Stocking Stamp Set and stamped it onto a circle that was die cut using our Circle Frames Die Set.  I framed it with a second circle, cut from lime green paper using the same die set. Then a fun red ribbon adds a finishing touch.

Channin Pelletier

Hello! I’m Channin Pelletier and I live in sunny Arizona with my husband and our two sweet daughters. I’m a long time crafter and papercrafter. I actually papercrafting started back in junior high by carving my own stamps from erasers for to make handmade cards and scrapbook pages. However, cardmaking has definitely become my favorite crafty hobby!  It’s difficult for me to nail down my style, I’m bit of chameleon! I love clean and simple designs, coloring critters and flowers, and even constructing interactive cards! But overall I love trying to come up with designs that are unique or unexpected!


I’d love it if you checked out my youtube channel at youtube.com/c/ChanninPelletier or my blog at https://channin.wordpress.com or follow me on Instagram @channinpelletier.

Here's what Channin created:

Deck the Halls with Inky Paws Week - Joyful Tidings Holiday Card by Guest Designer Channin Pelletier | Heartfelt Holidays Stamp Set and Meowy Christmas Paper Pad by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade
Christmas is all about holly and berries, right!? This gorgeous card by Channin features the beautiful image of holiday berries and foliage in a heart shape from our Heartfelt Holidays Stamp Set. She stamped the image with a light colored ink so she could color it in the "no line" coloring technique. This technique really looks amazing on this image! The soft edges really give it such a lovely hand colored look!! She cut the image out by hand to create the heart shape. Here is a close-up so you can see all the amazing details:

Deck the Halls with Inky Paws Week - Joyful Tidings Holiday Card by Guest Designer Channin Pelletier | Heartfelt Holidays Stamp Set and Meowy Christmas Paper Pad by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

For her card base, she used the red gingham patterned paper from our new Meowy Christmas Paper Pad. This coordinates perfectly with the image, adding the to festive feel! The finishing touch is the sentiment "Joyful Tidings" from the Heartfelt Holidays Stamp Set, embossed in white right onto the patterned paper!

Hello!! I'm Brenda Noelke and I blog over at mypapercutcreations. I am a small town girl from Union, MO. I have been married to my wonderful husband for almost 25 years and have two furbaby golden retrievers. I'm super excited to be a guest for Deck the Halls with Inky Paws this year!!


Brenda created TWO Amazing Holiday Cards Today:

Deck the Halls with Inky Paws Week - Holiday Card by Guest Designer Brenda Noelke | Holiday Home Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade
Her first card features a cozy scene of two kids bringing home a Christmas tree! Isn't this so perfect for celebrating holiday traditions? She stamped the images of the kids along with the house and clusters of trees from our Holiday Home Stamp Set. She colored all the images in traditional holiday colors using gorgeous reds and greens and some neutral browns. She used the coordinating Holiday Home Die Set to cut the images out. 
Deck the Halls with Inky Paws Week - Holiday Card by Guest Designer Brenda Noelke | Holiday Home Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade
For her card base, she created a scene by inking in soft blues for the snow drifts and sky. She added the house along the top, nestling trees on each side. Then she placed the kids along the bottom so they are walking towards the home. So cute! She left room for the large sentiment, also from the Holiday Home Stamp Set to the right of the image. She also added some red to the letters of the sentiment too. And the extra special touch is bits of flock on the snowy areas of the house and tree!
For her second card, Brenda used our Snow Much Cheer Stamp Set to create a snowy card that is full of cheer! 
Deck the Halls with Inky Paws Week - Snowman Card by Guest Designer Brenda Noelke | Snow Much Cheer Stamp Set and Framework Die Set and Meowy Christmas Paper Pad by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade
This happy card uses the image of the snowman couple from our Snow Much Cheer Stamp Set. Just looking at those cute snow people makes you feel happy! She colored them in bright and happy shades of red and green, adding accents with a white gel pen. She used the Snow Much Cheer Die Set to cut the image out. She created a cute little scene for the snowy pair, adding a hill along the bottom and inking the sky in blue. Snowflakes from the Snow Much Cheer Stamp Set stamp set were embossed onto the sky and the sentiment was stamped below them.

This cute little scene was framed with a red scalloped frame that was die cut out using our Framework Die Set. Then she layered it over a fun plaid background that was created using a piece of paper from our Meowy Christmas Paper Pad. So fun!

This cozy snowman card will steal your heart! Thi created this card using a trio of the snowmen from our Snow Much Cheer Stamp Set. Aren't these snowy friends so cute getting ready for the holidays? She stamped and colored the snowmen using gorgeous soft colors. The rosy pink cheeks and softly colored edges really make them pop off the card!

For the card base she created a lovely winter scene using our Evergreens Stencil to create a forest of trees over a softly inked blue sky. She added the sentiment "Warm holiday wishes", also from the Snow Much Cheer Stamp Set in between the trees, stamping it in red. She also added white paint splatters over the trees and sky to look like snow flurries!

My name is Audrey Tokach. I am a happily married wife, and mom to two amazing boys. I was born and raised in the Philadelphia suburbs but became a Florida transplant about 17  years ago.  I am an animal lover and coffee addict.  When I am not busy taking care of my boys, or my little animal menagerie,  you can find me making cards or coloring. I have a fun, whimsical style, and I love bright colors and cutesy images. I can’t live without my Copic markers, Distress ink and Oxides, or my watercolors, but I love experimenting with other coloring mediums as well. I am so excited to be joining the Newton's Nook team as a guest this month!  I'd love for you to follow me on social media if you like what you see!  I can be found on Instagram or on my blog, Pink Ink Originals.

Deck the Halls with Inky Paws Week - Santa Card by Guest Designer Audrey Tokach | Dear Santa Stamp Set and Cascading Stars Stencil by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

Here comes Santa Claus! This adorable card features our Dear Santa Stamp Set. Audrey colored the image of Santa holding a giant stack of gift. Her color combo is so fun with traditional red and green with added brown kraft wrapping paper and pops of teal and pink! She also added fun white accents using a white gel pen. She also stamped three additional little gifts using the same Dear Santa Stamp Set and colored them to coordinate. For her card today, she fussy cut the images out by hand, but if you don't like to fussy cut, there is a coordinating Dear Santa Die Set available in our shop. 

Deck the Halls with Inky Paws Week - Santa Card by Guest Designer Audrey Tokach | Dear Santa Stamp Set and Cascading Stars Stencil by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

For her background she created a super fun starry sky using our Cascading Stars Stencil with red ink. She added extra ink to the edges and faded it to the middle to highlight the spot where she added Santa. She also added some gold to some of the stars to give a special shimmery touch! Who doesn't love a little sparkle for the holidays?  The sentiment "Here comes Santa Claus" that was also stamped using our Dear Santa Stamp Set. She used a gold marker to fill in the letters in Santa too, perfect for coordinating with the gold stars! Do you like the little strip of green striped paper up the side? That is from our Meowy Christmas Paper Pad
