Smile Card by October Guest Designer Karen Baker

Smile Card by October Guest Designer Karen Baker | Flower Garden Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

It's Karen from The Bald Dragonfly here! I'm delighted to be back with my final card for Newton's Nook Designs as their October Guest Designer. I decided to create a bright, cheery card using the Flower Garden Stamp Set and the Garden Window Die Set.


I started by stamping the poppy image from the Flower Garden Stamp Set in gray ink repeatedly onto white cardstock. I them mounted the panel onto an aqua panel, opting to leave an unconventional border on just three sides.

I then die cut the word "smile" and a rose and yellow banner from the Garden Window Die Set and adhered these over the poppies. To finish off the card, I added a sprinkling of bright orange Nuvo Drops.


It was such a pleasure to guest design for Newton's Nook Designs and work with their amazing products! Thank you for having me!

Cat Lovers Hop 2016



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

Here's what I created:
Curl up with a good book Cat card by Jennifer Jackson| Newton's Book Club Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

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.
Curl up with a good book Cat card by Jennifer Jackson| Newton's Book Club Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

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!
