Purr-fect Day Card by Jennifer Jackson

Purr-fect Day Card by Jennifer Jackson | Cat Silhouettes Die Set, A Cat's Life Paper Pad, Frames Squared Die Set and Cat-itude Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

A Purr-fect Day!

Hello! Jen here today with an adorable quick and simple kitty card! This card is so basic and easy to create, you'll want to make a bunch for your stash! 

To create this card I started by cutting out some cute kitty silhouettes using the new  Cat Silhouettes Die Set. I cut out a whole bunch and then decided to just use these two since they look so adorable facing each other. Then I layered them onto a stitched square that was cut out using the Frames Squared Die Set. I adhered them to the lower corner and stamped the sentiment "Have a purr-fect day!" from our Cat-itude Stamp Set above them.

Then for the card base, I used a kraft cardstock and layered two pieces of patterned paper over the top, cut from our A Cat's Life Paper Pad. I added a yellow gingham ribbon where the two papers met. That's all! Clean and simmple and so adorable! 

All you'd have to do is change out the sentiment to make a thank you or birthday card. And you could make some using our Dog Silhouettes Die Set and A Dog's Life Paper Pad for your dog loving friends too!

Dreaming of Being a Mermaid!

Do you ever dream of being a mermaid? This kitty does! This adorable card by Amanda is perfect for sending a summer smile to someone who loves mermaids, or kitties, or both! 

For this fun card she features the kitty mermaid from our  Purr-maid Newton Stamp Set. She colors the kitty in neutrals and gives the mermaid tail fun bright shades of green with added sparkle! She also stamped and colored several of the little fish, some from the same stamp set and from the Scuba Newton Stamp Set. Everything was cut out using the coordinating Purr-maid Newton Die Set and Scuba Newton Die Set.

Next, she created a fun undersea scene for them to swim in using our Sea Borders Die Set. She cut waves out in several colors of cardstock and layered them together. Then she cut the whole panel out using the rounded rectangle from our Frames & Flags Die Set. What a fun way to create a wavy backgroud.

She added the mermaid and all the fish into the sea scene and then added the sentiment "Let's be mermaids" from the Purr-maid Newton Stamp Set onto a bubble cut out using our Speech Bubbles Die Set, A couple bubbles bursting from the top add to the fun!

For this card she features the cute robot and and his robot cat from the Love Bots Stamp Set. She colored them in gray but added fun rainbow colored accent areas on their arms and legs! Plus, pink cheeks to add to the cuteness! She used the coordinating Love Bots Die Set to cut the images out.

For the card base she used distress inks to add a blue toned sky and then added rays using our Sunscape Stencil with some glittery texture paste. She then layered the robots and a bitmap heart in front of the rays. How fun! The finishing touch is the sentiment "overload of thanks" which was embossed in white on a banner that was die cut using the banner die from our A7 Frames & Banners Die Set. And, of course, a bit of washi tape up the left side of the card adds a fun patterned detail!

A Big Cup of Thanks by Amanda Wilcox

A Big Cup of Thanks by Amanda Wilcox | Newton's Mug Stamp Set, Love Café Stamp Set, Framework Die Set, Mugs Stencil, and Frames & Flags Die Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

A Big Cup of Thanks!

Today we have an adorable thank you card by Amanda that features two of our favorite things: Kitties and Coffee!

For this sweet thank you she featured the kitty in the mug from our Newton's Mug Stamp Set. This set has several fun sentiments that will fit on the front of the mug and on hers she used "A big cup of thanks", embossed in white. She colored the mug a fun rustic orange color and added fun grey spots to her white kitty! So adorable! She cut the image out using the coordinating Newton's Mug Die Set. She also colored the smaller duo of mugs with hearts on them from our Love Café Stamp Set, coloring them in soft blues, greens and yellows. What a fabulous color combo! The smaller mugs were cut out with the coordinating Love Café Die Set

For the card base she cut a panel of textured neutral colored cardstock using our Framework Die Set to give it a postage stamp edge. Then she stenciled mugs onto the panel in a light gray using our Mugs Stencil. Over this panel she layered a rectangle of vellum that was cut out using the stitched rectangle from our Frames & Flags Die Set. Then the mugs were layered over the top. I love how the vellum softens the background pattern. A Little bit of twine finishes off the card. Doesn't this card have such a lovely coffee shop feel!?

Coffee + Tulips = a Perfect Spring Combination!

Today we are sharing a fun spring coffee themed card by design team member, Samantha Mann that features a big cup full of tulips! She used some creative masking to combine images from our Newton's Mug Stamp Set and our Tulips Stamp Set.

She stamped the big mug from the Newton's Mug Stamp Set and added a bit of shading along the edges to give it fun dimension. She fussy cut the image out by hand right up to the edges. Then she stamped and colored two tulip bunches using the Tulips Stamp Set. She colored the blooms in gorgeous pink tones and added little highlights with a white gel pen. She also carefully fussy cut these images out by hand so they didn't have any white edges and then placed them clustered inside the mug! So gorgeous and perfect for spring!

Here is a close-up. Didn't she do an incredible job cutting those blooms out!?
