Today I'm hopping along with the 5th Anniversary Celebration for A Blog Named Hero!
If you haven't heard of them yet, A Blog Named Hero is a fun challenge blog where participants use Hero Arts stamps in combo with other companies products to create fun challenge designs! They featured Newton's Nook Stamps last April (see more here).
Today they are celebrating their 5th Anniversary so when they asked us to play along we couldn't resist! Today is the first day of their TWO DAY blog hop! There are going to be FUN prizes on both day too - including one today from us at Newton's Nook Designs! You can head over to the A Blog Named Hero for more details on the prizes and view the whole hop list!
Here's what I created:
Most of the best celebrations include cake, right? So I thought it would be fitting to get out our Newton Loves Cake stamp set to play along! I created this sweet card using the image of the kitty sneaking a bit of cake! I stamped the image onto watercolor paper with archival jet black ink and colored the image using inktense colored pencils and a water brush. I also stamped the hat and colored it the same way. Then I trimmed out both images using the coordinating Newton Loves Cake Die Set. I added the image to a white panel with some dimensional foam adhesive. I kept the card pretty simple to focus on the cute image, leaving the bottom all white except for a few fun sequins and the "Did someone say cake?" sentiment, also from the Newton Loves Cake stamp set. Then I cut a piece of purple heart paper using using the stitched curve from our Land Borders Die Set and put that across the top with some pink and white bakers twine!
Purr-fect for a celebration, don't you think?
If you are new to us, you might not know that Newton is our real kitty! You can follow us on facebook or instagram to see lots of photos of him!
