Simply Wonderful Card by Danielle Pandeline

Danielle Pandeline | Beautiful Wings and Love Grows Stamp sets by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Lovely Spring Roses by Danielle!

Today we have a lovely pastel flower card by Danielle.  She used our fun big roses from the our Love Grows stamp set stamped them on that fun circle card shape. I love the bright pinks and yellows she used to color them. Then she added on a fun butterfly from the Beautiful Wings stamp set. I love how she stamped the butterfly in white and watercolored over the top. She trimmed that cute image out using the coordinating  Beautiful Wings Die Set. Then the finished off the card with the "You are simply Wonderful" sentiment, also from the Beautiful Wings stamp set, embossed in white on vellum! This whole card has such a lovely spring feel! It would be so fun to send out as a Spring hello or Birthday greeting!

Butterfly Cards by Jess Gerstner

Butterfly Cards by Jess Gerstner | Beautiful Wings stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Beautiful Butterfly Card Set! 

Jess created this fun quick and easy card sets using images from our Beautiful Wings stamp set!  I love how she masked off a strip of the card and stamped fun ombre colored butterflies and flowers. Then she stamped the big butterfly and used the coordinating Beautiful Wings Die Set to cut it out. This is a super simple layout that you can customize by adding different sentiments. She used the "You are simply wonderful" and the "Happy Birthday", both from the Beautiful Wings stamp set. It would be fun to make a bunch of these in different colors to have on hand when you need a quick card!

Here's a video Jess created showing you how she made this card:

Thanks for the fun inspiration today,  Jess! You can see more of her projects on her blog, Jess Crafts  - and you can also follow her Jess Crafts youtube channel to see more fun videos!

Hip-Hip Hooray! It's a Birthday Card!

Yay! Sports fans will LOVE this fun birthday card by Crafty Math-Chick! She used our cute dog referee from the Touchdown Tails stamp set to make this fun sporty card!

What a fun masculine card!

You can head over to the Coffee Lovers Blog for more details on how to play along! 

Here's what I created:

Coffee Cat card by Jennifer Jackson | Newton Loves Coffee Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #coffee

I used our Newton Loves Coffee stamp et since it features our favorite feline and, of course, coffee. I stamped the image of the kitty hugging the "to go" coffee mug onto watercolor paper. I colored the image using Distress markers and added a bit of distress ink on the paper edges. I used the "Coffee is ALWAYS a good idea" sentiment, also from the Newton Loves Coffee stamp set above the image. Then I layered it with a kraft colored doily, some plaid paper and striped washi tape. I added on a bit of blue twine and teal epoxy dots too. I love how this turned out!

True story - our real kitty, Newton, DOES LOVE COFFEE! I can't leave it unguarded or he will come stick his paw into the mug and then lick it! Silly kitty!
