Beach Day Ombré Card by Lydia Evans

Beach Day Ombré Card by Lydia Evans | Paradise Palms stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Beach Day!

Today we have a gorgeous ombré beach card by Lydia! She embossed the palm trees from the Paradise Palms stamp set repeatedly in white to and inked them to create the lovely ombre background! So beautiful! She used the "Make every day a Beach day" sentiment from the Aloha Newton stamp set and accented it with those pretty tropical leaves from our  Hibiscus Die Set, cut out in white! What a stunning card!

Happy Birthday Card by Crafty Math Chick

Surprise! It's a kitty Birthday card!

Today Crafty Math-Chick created this adorable kitty card birthday card! Can you believe that image is from a  Christmas stamp set?  She colored the image of the kitty popping out of the gift from the Newton's Christmas Cuddles stamp set in fun blue and yellow to match the fun bright background paper! So festive and cheerful! She also added the "Happy Birthday" and "May your day be filled with surprises" from our Raccoon Rascals stamp set.

Did you notice that many of the images in our Newton's Christmas Cuddles stamp set can be re-purposed for other types of cards? Just by changing up the way you color the images, a Christmas stamp becomes a birthday one! This is a great stamp to have if you're on a budget since you STRETCH it for different occasions! It also has two sweet kitties kissing (great for anniversary cards), and two kitties snuggling in hats and scarfs (great for winter greetings).  Here's another peek at the set so  you can see all the possibilities:

Thank you, Crafty Math-Chick, for the fun inspiration today! To see moe details and other projects, you can visit her blog, Canines & Card Designs.

Happy Little Hello Card by August Guest Designer Mindy Baxter



Happy Little Hello Card by August Guest Designer Mindy Baxter | Hedghog Hollow Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

It's Mindy from My Creative Scoop! This month has been so much fun getting to be apart of the super talented Newton's Nook team. I'm sad to say this 'Happy Little Hello' card is my last. I'm using this brand new, super adorable stamp set, Hedgehog Hollow. I love all of the little elements in this set. Notice how I double stamped the hedgehog to give him some dimension on the mushroom. I adore all of those little colorful mushrooms. There's so many different cards you can make with this set. I can't wait to create with it again.

    Of course I had to play along too! I used the images from the Beautiful Leaves stamp set and embossed them on kraft colored paper in gold, white and brown. Then I trimmed them out with coordinating Beautiful Leaves die set. The tag was cut out using our Tags Times Two Die Set.  I added some burlap behind the tag and a strip of lace too!

    A Little Birdie Told Me Card by Samantha Mann

    A Little Birdie Told Me Card by Samantha Mann | Newton's Birthday Flutter stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

    A little birdie told me...

    ...that this card by Samantha will make you smile!!

    Samantha created this adorable birthday card using that cute kitty with the feathers in his mouth from the Newton's Birthday Flutter stamp set.  Do you think that naughty kitty just ate the bird, or do you think he got away? Either way this card is super fun! She fussy-cut out the kitty image and added it onto those pretty rolling hills and yellow sky! The red balloon floating away gives the perfect pop of color. The sentiment is also from the Newton's Birthday Flutter stamp set and was embossed on a little banner that she cut out using the Garden Window Die Set.

    Here's a peek to the inside - this looks so fun!
    Do you ever decorate the inside of your cards?

    Sweet pink lemonade! 

    Today we're sharing this sweet pink lemonade card by Yukari using our new Freshly Squeezed stamp set. The image of our bear, Winston, with his lemonade stand looks so cute with the pink stripes and the fun yellow banner! I think he's probably selling pink lemonade today! She also added on the "when life gives you lemons, make lemonade" sentiment from the  Freshly Squeezed stamp set over some more pink and white stripes! I love how this looks! This card would be great to cheer someone up!
