We can't wait to share what she creates with our stamps! Keep reading to find out more about Simone today and to check out her first project below!

Hello, everyone! I'm so excited to announce that I am a guest designer for Newton's Nook Designs
My name is Simone Naoum, and I live in Perth, Western Australia with my hubby, our identical twin girls and our fluffy little kitty cat. I originally grew up in a small country town a few hours south of Perth, and will always be a country girl at heart.

My girls are now in kindergarten so in between housework and before school pick-up I like to sneak into my craft room and get stamping.

I have always had a love for cute stationary and paper products from a young age, (which soon turned into a patterned paper obsession) which lead me into card making and stamping! 10 years on and I still love pretty papers but I am now obsessed with rubber stamping and creating cards. My style is definitely clean and simple, as I love lots of clean white space, along with paper piecing and adding in a few fun embellishments.

Hello Everyone
I'm so excited to finally be able to share with you all today, that I am the guest designer for the month of June at Newton's Nook Designs!

This was a bit of hard secret to keep quiet for a while, as I just love working with their sweet stamp sets! For today's card I used the adorable Winston's Honeybees stamp set to create a sweet paper pieced honey bear card.
Hello Honey Bear Card by June Guest Designer Simone Naoum | Winston's Honeybees stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I started this card by stamping the bear and bee images onto some plain white cardstock and again onto various pattered papers. I then used my Silhouette Cameo machine and the pixscan mat to cut out the images that were stamped onto plain white cardstock. Next I fussy cut all the elements from the patterned papers and paper pieced them all together onto the white cardstock images.

Before sticking the images down onto my card base, I arranged them where I wanted them to go and stamped on my sentiment and the dotted heart trail for the bee. Finally I stuck down Winston and the bees with some adhesive foam, before embellishing the card with some yellow sequins and a black enamel dot.

I absolute love this cute little stamp set! Aren't Winston and those bees just cute?! I hope you enjoyed my first card for Newton's Nook Designs?  I'll be back again next Monday with another one for you all!

Thank you for stopping by.
