Hope Your Day Doesn't Bite Card by Ellen Haxelmans

Shark and Pirate costumed Cats |  Card by Ellen Haxelmans | Newtons Costume Party Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook handmade
Today's card by Ellen is sure to make you smile! She created an adorable water scene using several stamp sets. How cute are those two kitties!!? The kitty wearing the shark costume is from the Newton's Costume Party Stamp Set. She also colored a cute pirate hat from the Newton's Costume Party Stamp Set and added it onto the kitty from the Newton's Antics Stamp Set.  She trimmed out the kitties using the coordinating dies from both sets. Then she created a scene for them using the Land Borders Die Set and Sea Borders Die Set. She added in some cattails on the the sides from the Winston's Lake House Stamp Set. To finish off the card she added in the funny "Hope your day doesn't bite" and "Nom! Nom! Nom!" sentiments from the Shark Bites Stamp Set

This combo of images is so creative and fun! I love the idea of using the costumed kitties to create cards for occasions other than Halloween!

The cute clusters of grey pumpkins were created using the pumpkin image from the Fall-ing for You Stamp Set. She added the kitty and pumpkins to this adorable card with a gorgeous inked background. She added black hills using the Land Borders Die Set and embossed the "Happy Halloween" sentiment from the Creepy Cameos Stamp Set in the lower corner! So cute!

Autumn Fun Card by Guest Designer Tracy Freeman



Hey guys September is going by so quickly !

Today I am sharing a Autumn card with you made with the super cute Autumn Newton Stamp Set.

Autumn Cat Card by Guest Designer Tracy Freeman | Autumn Newton Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade
I watercolored this piece after stamping him onto some Canson Watercolour Card. I wanted to go for a black kitty with a white face to match one of my own kitties.

I had a lot of fun watercoloring the leafs all the different colours and tones and as I wanted the image to be the main focus I added some basic shading around him.

I die cut the main piece out along with some Gina K card stock and Echo Park patterned paper and then used a scallop border die from Simon Says stamp along the edge of the red card before heat embossing the sentiment.

To finish the card off I added some natural twine and adhered all the pieces to an A2 top folding notecard and it was done.

Have you checked out the new release ? All I can say is I am glad it is my birthday month because I want to buy the whole release!

Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you have a great day!

Happy Crafting!

Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! Coffee card by Jennifer Jackson using Fall-ing for You and Newton Loves Coffee Stamp Sets  and Falling Leaves Stencil by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade
We have two coffee themed sets that I really love (Newton Loves Coffee and Fall-ing for You)and I couldn't decide which one to use for our post today so I decided to use them both together, along with our NEW Falling Leaves Stencil!  I started out by creating a background with the Falling Leaves Stencil. I love how the leaves change in size from top to bottom and decided to ink over them with fall colors to give an ombr√© effect from red to yellow!

Next, I stamped the big sentiment from the Fall-ing for You Stamp Set stamp set onto vellum and embossed it. Then I stamped the kitty with the coffee mug from the Newton Loves Coffee Stamp Set and cut him out withe the coordinating Newton Loves Coffee Die Set. I decided I needed a second mug so I stamped the mug from the Fall-ing for You Stamp Set and colored it to go next to him. This set doesn't have a coordinating die set but it was pretty simple to fussy cut out the mug.

I put all the pieces together and added a couple little strips of washi tape to help hold down the vellum panel. I really love how this turned out and how great these images look together!  I also had a ton of fun creating it!
