Neon Newton!

Before I show you my project today I just wanted to say THANK YOU to everyone who ordered yesterday and made our first day in business so great! Also thanks to everyone who participated in the blog launch party this week. It was so much fun to read everyones comments about our new products! We are so excited that everyone likes them! All the winners from yesterday have responded so we will be getting those freebies out in the mail to you! I can't wait to see what you make! 

If you haven't ordered yet, there's still time to get the shipping special! Use code NNDLAUNCH in your shopping cart for $3 off shipping (that means FREE shipping to US and $3 off everywhere else!)

Ok - now I'm ready to show you what I made. If you follow me at all on instagram you might remember this image of some neon colored pencils I posted awhile back. These are  called Koh-I-Noor Astra Neon FX. I found them at a local craft shop but I think dick blick has them online too. 
Now I can show you the cutest card I made with them! A little white kitty with neon pink ears! For this  ard I used our stamp set Newton's Antics which you can now purchase in our online shop here! 
I stamped the kitty on white paper with black and colored his little ears with the neon pink pencil. Then I added some neon green grass around him.  I stamped the sentiment "loves mew"  - which is normally straight but I curved it on the stamp block so that it curved around his butt!  That is another cool thing you can do with photopolymer stamps, just bend them the way you like.. .and after you're done they bend right back! 

I added some little hearts above his head and colored them in with the other neon pencils - yellow pink and orange. I also stuck on a few cute little colored sequins I had that matched pretty closely as well. 
Isn't it so sweet? I really love how this one turned out. It looks so much more vibrant in person - it's hard to capture the neon on camera.

Hope you're having a lovely Saturday!


  1. Congrats on your launch! I'll have to check out your store.

  2. I love your card. The neon colors are wonderful. TFS.

  3. Love how you used neon on this card...the hearts look great. I also like the use of twine and that little panel of pp on kraft.


Thanks for commenting! We love to hear what you think!
