From Meow to You Card by Tatiana Trafimovich

From Meow to You! 

Today we are sharing an adorable kitty themed holiday card by Tatiana! She created this fabulous slimline layout using a trio of kittens from our new A Kitten Christmas Stamp Set. She colored all three kitties in a similar color palette but gave each one different fur markings! She also used matching colors to tie together their accessories so that they all coordinate together on this card! Aren't they adorable!? The images were cut out using the coordinating A Kitten Christmas Die Set

For the slimline card she created a white frame using our Slimline Frames & Windows Die Set. This die set cuts out the frame and adds stitching to the inside of the windows too. She added blue ink to the interior cuts to create a sky and also added little snow flurries using texture paste with our Petite Snow Stencil

Here are a couple of close-ups so you can see all the amazing details:



This card by Tatiana is perfect for the Cat Lover's Blog Hop, going on this week! Make sure you head over there and see more amazing kitty cards, and don't forget to play along for a chance to win prizes by October 31! You can find details at Her Peaceful Garden

Don't forget, you can always see more of Tatiana's beautiful work over on her blog, Tatiana Craft and Art.

Grateful for You Card by Amy Tsuruta

Grateful for You Card by Amy Tsuruta | Sunflower Days, Pumpkin Latte, and Fall-ing for You Stamp Sets by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Grateful for You!

Although we've started sharing Christmas cards, there is still a bit of time left to celebrate fall too! Today we have an amazing Fall themed card by Amy! She combined several fun fall themed products to create this cozy Fall scene! First she colored the big image of sunflowers from our Sunflower Days Stamp Set.  Then she added pumpkins in front of the sunflowers, using images from our Fall-ing for You Stamp Set and our Pumpkin Latte Stamp Set. She also added the girl carrying her coffee from the Pumpkin Latte Stamp Set. The images were cut out using the coordinating Sunflower Days Die Set and  Pumpkin Latte Die Set.  She layered everything over a stitched circle to contain the scene (cut out with our Circle Frames Die Set). She also added a bit of grass along the bottom of the circle using our Land Borders Die Set.

Behind the circle, she added two fun layers with decorative edges that were cut out using our Framework Die Set. On the top layer she also added a soft argyle pattern using our Argyle Stencil Set. The finishing touch is the sentiment "Grateful for you" from our Fall Roundabout Stamp Set. It was added onto a banner that has a pop up dimension to it from our Banner Trio Die Set

This card is jam packed with cozy fall fun, don't you think!?

You Make Life Sweet Slimline Card by Samantha Mann

You Make Life Sweet Slimline Card by Samantha Mann | Cat Treats Stamp Set and Slimline Die Sets by Newton's Nook Designs

You Make Life Sweet!

This card by Samantha is sure to sweeten up your day! She created this tasty slimline card featuring the yummy images from our Cat Treats Stamp Set. This mini stamp set has images of an ice cream cone  and a donut with kitty faces! Too cute! Samantha stamped each image multiple times, colored them in yummy colors (think chocolate, vanilla, strawberry), and cut them out using the coordinating Cat Treats Die Set

For the background she created a panel of plaid using our Plaid Stencil Set with inks in oranges and pinks. Then, to cut the scalloped background for her slimline card she used our Slimline Frames & Portholes Die Set. She also added three windows of vellum, cut out with our Slimline Frames & Windows Die Set. A bit of confetti was embossed on top in white using our Confetti Stencil

The finishing touch is the sentiment "You make life sweet" from the Cat Treats Stamp Set.

To say hello to Sam and see more of her amazing creations you can visit Sam over on her blog, Sam's Scrap Candy!

Pretty in Pastel Birthday Cards by October Guest Designer Farhana S

Can you believe it’s the last Monday in October? I am so sad that this is my last post as Guest Designer. If you haven’t realized already, I love Newton’s Nook Design products, thankfully I will still have the Inky Paws Challenge to create for! For my last pair of cards, I made my favourite and most used cards! With all the little friend’s birthdays we get invited too, I always need to keep a few in hand!

Pretty in Pastel Birthday Cards by October Guest Designer Farhana S | Birthday Roundabout Stamp Set and Balloon Shaker Die Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I’ve been drawn towards pastel colors lately, so I used that as a starting point for these cards, I also wanted to make a slimline card for one of my posts, but since the Newton Nook Slimline Dies just got back into stock, I decided to play around with some older products to pull together a slim line card.

Pretty in Pastel Birthday Cards by October Guest Designer Farhana S | Birthday Roundabout Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

For my first card, I started by stamping and coloring the Birthday Roundabout Stamp Set using copic markers, I used ALL the lightest shades that I have! Then I die cut it with the largest circle from the Circle Frames Die Set. Then I trimmed down a piece of pattern paper that matched my coloring, added it to a card base, and adhered the colored image a little off set. Finally finished off with a sentiment from the Birthday Roundabout Stamp Set, embossed in black on to a strip of paper, which I trimmed into a banner before adhering it onto my card.

Pretty in Pastel Birthday Cards by October Guest Designer Farhana S | Balloon Shaker Die Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

For my second card, I started by stamping and heat embossing the Birthday Roundabout Stamp Set three times in white ink of white cardstock. Then I added color by ink blending with distress oxides in a pastel rainbow. I buffed the images with a towel to let the white embossing pop, then I die cut 3 balloons using the Balloon Shaker Die Set and also some of the strings that I later colored yellow with some ink blending. So assemble the card I started ink blending a cloud background on to a slim line card front using some distress oxide ink. Then I mounted the balloons using some foam tape for added dimension, and liquid glue to tuck in the strings underneath. Finally I embossed a sentiment from the Uplifting Wishes Stamp Set on the bottom corner. And done!

Which one is more your style? Detailed coloring or easy ink blending? Let me know in the comments below and please follow me on Instagram to see my cards for Inky Paws Challenges to come!

Lastly, thanks again Jennifer and Samantha! You two made my card making dream come true! I can’t wait to add more Newton Nook products to my crafty stash!
