Happy MEOWR with Newton!

Today we are headed out to the beach to share a fun drink with Newton on this fun summer card by Diane

For this card Diane features the cute image of the kitty with the fishbowl drink from our Newton's Happy Meowr Stamp Set. She colored the image in fun bright summer colors with alcohol markers and cut it out using the coordinating Newton's Happy Meowr Die Set. She also stamped and colored the fun little seashell images that are included in this set to add to her beach scene.

To create a fun beach scene for Newton, She used our Sunscape Stencil with orange ink over a yellow cardstock panel to create a sunny sky. Then she used our Sea Borders Die Set to cut a curved border of sand to go across the bottom of her scene. She used our Frames Squared Die Set to create a scalloped square for her card base and cut the layers to fit onto the front. So fun! 

The finishing detail is the sentiment "It's happy MEOWR somewhere!" stamped onto a banner that was cut out using our Banner Duo Die Set

Happy Meowr Cards by Jennifer Jackson

Happy Meowr Summer Card by Jennifer Jackson | Newton's Happy Mewor Stamp Set, Basic Frames Die Set, Frames & Tags Die Set and Speech Bubbles Die Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

It's Happy MEOWR! 

Hello! Jen here today and I've been having so much fun with our NEW Newton's Happy Meowr Stamp Set! We snuck this new design into our shop over Memorial Day Weekend but we didn't get a chance to share it on our blog yet so I thought I'd show you what I created using this fun new design! 

For my first card started with the adorable image of Newton drinking a summer drink from a fishbowl! On this one I imagined him drinking a lemonade. I used watercolor markers to color the kitty in shades of gray and added bright yellow to the water in the bowl. I hope the fish likes lemonade too! I also stamped and cut out the sunglasses to add onto the kitty.

Behind the kitty I inked up a panel using shades of yellow and then die cut it using our Basic Frames Die Set to make it into a big banner. I added the sentiment "It's Happy Meowr Somewhere!" onto a speech bubble that was cut out using our Speech Bubbles Die Set

For the background I repeatedly stamped all the little images that are included with this set in a random pattern and then addd splashes of color over them. I then cut it out with our Frames & Tags Die Set to give it that fun zig zag edge. I love how this turned out! It's so fun and cheerful for summer! 

For my second card I created a fun summer theme and added some waves:

I used the same image from our NEW Newton's Happy Meowr Stamp Set again to start out. I used watercolor markers agin but this time I colored the kitty orange (just like our Newton). This time his drink is blue. Maybe it's a summer punch or blue raspberry flavor? I cut the image out using the coordinating Newton's Happy Meowr Die Set

For the background I used our Waves & Splashes Stencil to create layers of fun waves. Then I cut the panel out using the rectangle from our Basic Frames Die Set. I also added a stripe of yellow polka dot paper along the bottom of the panel using our Bright Basics Paper Pad

Lastly, I used our Circle Frames Die Set to add a scalloped circle of vellum behind the kitty and a  yellow circle next to him with the sentiment "Cheers to Summer!" 

I hope you enjoyed these Summer cards created with our NEW Newton's Happy Meowr Stamp Set! This set is available now in our shop and you can find a couple more cute cards I created over there! 

Here's to a fun summer for all!

Stenciled Gift Bags by Ellen Haxelmans | Argyle and Plaid Stencil Sets, Frames & Tags Die Set, Snow Globe Shaker and Pawprint Shaker Die Sets by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

Use Stencils to Dress up a Small Gift!

Want a way to make a small gift seem extra special? Ellen shares how you can dress up the packaging using stencils and die cuts! 

She started out by creating stenciling patterns onto two small flat gift bags. She created one with a cat birthday theme and one with a holiday theme. 

Let's look at the cat themed bag first: 

Stenciled Gift Bags by Ellen Haxelmans | Argyle and Plaid Stencil Sets, Frames & Tags Die Set, Snow Globe Shaker and Pawprint Shaker Die Sets by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

For this fun bag she used our  Plaid Stencil Set to add a fun teal and pink pattern. This stencil is two pieces and has etching each piece to help you align the pattern so it's easy to add two fun colors. Next she used the small tags from our new Frames & Tags Die Set to cut out two little tags from light pink and teal papers. She added the kitty face from our Pawprint Shaker Die Set and the word "wish" from our Balloon Shaker Die Set. So cute!

Next, let's look at the holiday version:

Stenciled Gift Bags by Ellen Haxelmans | Argyle and Plaid Stencil Sets, Frames & Tags Die Set, Snow Globe Shaker and Pawprint Shaker Die Sets by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

This time she used our Argyle Stencil Set to add a red and green argyle pattern to her bag. Again, this stencil is two pieces with etching and makes a quick and easy two color pattern. For the tags on this gift she again used our new Frames & Tags Die Set to cut out two little tags, this time from from red and green papers. Then she added the snowflake and word "joy" using from our Snow Globe Shaker Die Set

These cute little gift bags would be perfect for sharing a special cookie treat or little gift. We love how easy it is to create them for different occasions just by mixing up the patterns and colors!
