Cat Lovers Hop!
This week was the Cat Lovers Hop! I really wanted to post a card earlier but it's been a bit crazy here with our NEW holiday release this week! So I'm sneaking one in late today! There's still one more day to play along! To participate in this blog hop, you just have to create a project that features a cat and upload it to the post on Her Peaceful Garden! You totally should play along if you can since there are some really awesome sponsors and prizes, including one from us at Newton's Nook Designs!
I don't know about you but this time of year feels like the perfect time to curl up and read! So I pulled out my Newton's Book Club stamp set to create this fun card. It's hard to choose my favorite image from this set but I settled on the cute kitty reading a book! I love those glasses! I stamped him onto watercolor paper with waterproof ink and colored him with inktense colored pencils and a waterbrush. I added the "Curl up with a good book" sentiment above him, also from the Newton's Book Club stamp set and then started on the card base.
I decided to use a fun teal and orange combo for colors and used a teal card base, adding a layer of plaid pattern paper and some polka dot papers too. Then I added strip of teal chevron washi tape and some fun colored dots. When I added the image to the card the square seemed too "square" so I used a corner rounder on two corners to give it a little more interest!
This card would be perfect for our current inky paws challenge too! The theme is Cozy Plaids and it's open until Next Friday, Nov. 4 if you want to play along! You can find details here!
Meanwhile, I hope you will play along with the Cat Lovers Hop! I know Newton, our sweet kitty, definitely approves of this hop!! Have you met Newton yet? If you haven't, here's a quick pic of him! He's the inspiration for many of our cat themed stamps and the namesake of our company! You have until Oct 29th to link up at Her Peaceful Garden for a chance to win prizes!
