A Pineapple A Day... Card by Holly Endress

Pineapple Card by Holly Endress | Pineapple Delight Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Pretty Pineapples

This delightful pineapple card was created by Holly! She used the fun pineapples from our Pineapple Delight stamp set and used distress inks to stamp them! She created a fun watercolor background and then added the sentiment "A pineapple a day keeps the worries away" using gold foil and the Minc machine to give it a special touch! This sentiment is also part of the Pineapple Delight stamp set. She finished off the card with a few sequins to add a bit more sparkle! What a lovely one layer card! 

Thank you, Holly, for inspiring us today! You can find more of Holly's beautiful creations and say hello to her over at her blog, Hollybeary Creations!

Love Bandit card by Jennifer Jackson

Love Bandit card by Jennifer Jackson | Woodland Duos Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Love Bandits!

Have you checked out our new Woodland Duos stamp set yet? This set is so perfect for creating fun valentine cards! All three of the sweet couples fit inside the big heart in our Darling Hearts die set! For this card I stamped the two cutie raccoons with Archival black ink on watercolor paper and colored them with Zig Clean color markers. Then I added them to this card along with some strips of simple patterned papers. I added a couple of banners too, stamping the "love bandit" sentiment onto one of them. I always like to refer to raccoons as "bandits" so I couldn't resist adding the "love bandit" sentiment to this set when I designed it! To finish off the card I added some twine and the woodgrain patterned heart, stamped in hot pink ink to give it a fun pop of color! 

Hope you enjoyed this cute little duo today and are inspired to create some woodsy Valentine cards!

More Summer fun!

I think our Design Team is ready for warm weather! Today we have another summery card, this time by Ellen! She designed a super fun summer scene using some of our newer sets mixed with some older favorites! She created a grassy picnic featuring the cute Pug from our new our Pug Hugs stamp set! She added a yummy lemonade for the puppy using the mug from the  Freshly Squeezed stamp set and a chocolate covered strawberry from the new Love & Chocolate stamp set. What a fun scene! Then she finished the card off with the "Aloha" sentiment from the Aloha Newton stamp set.

Make Every Day a Beach Day Card by Samantha Mann

Make Every Day a Beach Day Card by Samantha Mann | Paradise Palms stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

A Beach Day in January!

How's the weather where you live? Is your January cold or warm? If you have a cold January this card by Samantha will warm you up today! She used the palm tree image from the Paradise Palms stamp and inked it up in green and brown to create two colors with one stamp! So cool! I love how she added some watercolor splashes for the water and some for the sun too! Then she stamped the word "summer" repeatedly from the Simply Seasonal stamp set in grey and added the "Make every day a Beach Day"  from the Aloha Newton stamp set in black! What a fun summery card. This card makes me want to take a tropical vacation to get away from the cold weather here! 

Thank you Samantha for the warm and tropical card  today! To say hello to Samantha and see more of her awesome creations, you can visit Samantha's Blog, Sam's Scrap Candy!

Love and Chocolate card by Juliana Michaels

Love and Chocolate card by Juliana Michaels | Love & Chocolate stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Love & Chocolate!

If you love chocolates, this card by Juliana will have your mouth watering! She used a bunch of the sweet chocolate shapers from our Love & Chocolate stamp set and stamped them all over the card background along with some little hearts to make a fun pattern! She colored those yummy little bites with Prismacolor pencils to create that lovely soft look! Then she embossed the "All you need is Love and Chocolate" sentiment with white on black paper and added it to her card! She finished it off with some soft pink trim! What a beautiful chocolate card! This card would be great for a Valentine's Day greeting or just to send a chocolate lover any time of year! 

Thanks for sharing this yummy card today, Juliana! To see more of her beautiful projects, visit Juliana over at her blog,  17 Turtles!

Now, who has chocolate on their desk? I think I need a piece!!

Hedgehog Hello by Jennifer Jackson


Happy Hello!

Today I have a happy little hello to share using our Hedgehog Hollow stamp set! This set filled with hedgehogs is just TOO cute! One of my favorite images in this set is the hedgehog in the little teacup! He's just so adorable! I stamped him and colored him with zig clean color markers, then added the "happy little hello" sentiment above him, also from the our Hedgehog Hollow stamp set. I added him on to the card and left it simple, just adding a bit of twine, a doily and some patterned paper from my scraps! Do you find you have a ton of patterned paper you don't use? I'm trying to use up some of mine that I've saved forever!!
