Happy Surf Day!

Today we are headed to the beach with a beautiful summer card by Larissa!

This card features the adorable image of the van carrying a surfboard and luggage from our Beach Bound Stamp Set. She colored the van beautifully, leaving a bit sunny highlight on the center and added white gel pen accents. The image was cut out using the coordinating Beach Bound Die Set.

For her card, she created a gorgeous summer beach scene. She used the tall palms from our Retro Sun & Palms Stencil Set, applying two colors to the stencil. She also added rhinestones to the centers of the palm tree leaves to look like coconuts! Next, she cut along the bottom of the scene using our  Land Borders Die Set to make a hill. She colored the hill using brown ink and added speckles to make it look like a sandy beach! So cool! The whole scene is framed with a postage edged panel that was cut out using our Framework Die Set

Happy Surf Day Card by Donna Idlet

Surf Day Card by Donna Idlet | Newton's Perfect Wave Stamp Set, Retro Sun & Palms Stencil Set and Land Borders Die Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Happy SURF day!

Instead of sending a birthday card to a friend who loves the beach, how about sending a "SURF" day card like this one created by Donna! 

To create this incredible beach scene, Donna started by creating a sunset using our Retro Sun & Palms Stencil. This two piece stencil includes a layer with a sunset and one with palm trees, perfect for filling a card front. She used warm yellow and orange inks on the sun layer and then colored the palms in traditional green and brown. Then she added a sandy beach by cutting an edge using our Land Borders Die Set from kraft colored cardstock. She added a fun dotted texture along the edges to make it look sandy. 

The star of the show is the kitty carrying the surf board from our Newton's Perfect Wave Stamp Set. Isn't she adorable!? Donna colored the image in fun bright summer colors and added pink cheeks and white gel pen accents too! The image was cut out using the Newton's Perfect Wave Die Set

The sentiment "Happy Surf Day" was stamped from the Newton's Perfect Wave Stamp Set onto the sky.

Aloha!

Happy Friday! We are ending our week with an amazing sunset beach card by Zsofia

This beautiful summer card features the kitty playing a ukulele from our Aloha Newton Stamp Set. Zsofia stamped and colored the kitty in lovely neutrals with a pop of pink and cut the image out using the coordinating Aloha Newton Die Set

Next, she created a gorgeous beach for the kitty to play music on! She use our two piece Retro Sun & Palms Stencil Set to create a sunset background. To do this she used the first layer of the stencil (with the sunset) and inked it in hues of pink and orange. Then she layered the second stencil over the sunset (with the palms) and added the palms using a black glitter paste over the stencil. How pretty! 

The sandy beach was created by die cutting an edge using our Land Borders Die Set and she added texture to the sand using embossing powder. She also added gloss to the kitties guitar. 

Here are close-ups so you can see all the incredible textures:

Beach Card with Kittens by Tatiana Trafimovich | Kitten Beach Stamp Set, Beach Bound Stamp Set, Summer Moments Stamp Set and Waves & Splashes Stencil by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Sea You at the Beach! 

We are spending a lot of time at the beach this week! Today we have fresh summer inspiration from Tatiana, who has created this adorable beach scene filled with kitty friends! 

To create this card she stamped and colored two of the kittens from our Kitten Beach Stamp Set. She used neutral colors paired with soft summer pastels to color the images. She also added fun speckles to the sandcastle and white gel pen accents to add fun detail! She also stamped and colored the image of the beach bag filled with summer accessories from our Summer Moments Stamp Set, cutting it out with the coordinating Summer Moments Die Set. And, to complete the beach theme, she stamped and colored the van carrying surfboards from our new Beach Bound Stamp Set, cutting it out using the coordinating Beach Bound Die Set

For her card base, she created a beach scene by inking soft brown along the bottom for the sand and then adding waves along the top using our Waves & Splashes Stencil with blue ink. Some ink splatters add texture to the sand too. Then she assembled all the elements together on top of the beach. The sentiment from the Summer Moments Stamp Set in the top corner finishes the card off.
