Bonus Stamp Release!

The blog hop starts here, with a cards featuring our BRAND NEW stamp set, just released today called Whispering Pines! This beautiful 4x6 tree set gives you the look of watercolor using your stamp and ink pad. These trees were watercolored by hand and then converted into stamps to give you that soft, imperfect painted feel. Try layering them and using different inks to create beautiful nature cards. And, because we couldn’t resist, we’ve added dog and cat silhouettes to add into your scenes!

Cards by Jennifer Jackson using Whispering PInes stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

For my two cards I stamped the trees with green inks. For the left side card, I simply added some "snow" with light blue ink and the "let it snow" sentiment and cat a dot silhouettes too. I love how simple this is! A complete "one layer" card! For the card on the right I did a bit more layering. I added some snow on top of the trees that I embossed in white! So pretty! I also added the "thinking of you" sentiment on the bottom and fun green ribbon.

Here's the whole set:

  8. These trees are gorgeous! And yes, Newton is one handsome guy. I'm a huge "cat fan" and have been "caring" for "God's cat garden" of feral cats in my neighborhood--two we have "tamed" and they come inside for treats and "luvs". We have neutered 15--and continue to feed them, even create a "shelter" for them when the weather gets cold.
