Sharing some Winston Love Today!

Winston's Birthday | Bear Birthday Card | Newton's Nook Designs

I just LOVE Winston!

Isn't he so fun? Our Bear, Winston, is one of my favorite stamps to color - and this set, Winston's Birthday is so great - I've made a bunch of birthday cards with it already and I can see it staying in my favorites for sure!  For this first card I just colored Winston holding the fish  with copics and then added the sentiment "grin and bear it" in the card corner. Then I added some patterned paper, washi tape and bakers twine (my 3 MUST-HAVE card add-ons).

 I also added some enamel dots that I made by melting plastic beads (see papercrafts article here) . Oh, and the "another Birthday" was stamped on some bright yellow-green paper and added on as a flag! I LOVE how this turned out!

More Winston!
And another card featuring Winston! For this one I stamped him on watercolor paper and colored him with Inktense Watercolor pencils (Love these). I stamped the hat on a scrap so I could cut it out and "pop" it off his head!

This card also uses some fun patten papers and bakers twine! I also used a border punch to create the fun scalloped edge!
