Pug Hugs Card by September Guest Designer Tracy Freeman

I can't believe my guest design term is over with Newtons Nook It has gone so quick and I have loved every part of it.

I thought as it was my last week I would use my favourite Newtons Nook Stamp set, Pug Hugs. I adore all things Newton but this set just gets me every time (I am also a HUGE pug fan)

I stamped the image and sentiment onto some Canson Watercolor paper using my Misti and then used my Missiongold Watercolours to colour this cutie.

I went with fairly loose watercoloring and added some colours around him and "ground".
Whilst that was drying I took some plaid paper and two dies that I have and created the frame. I love getting more out of my dies and this is an easy way to do that.

I then adhered the watercolour piece flat to the card base and for the plaid piece I used some foam time to add some dimension.

To finish off I added some Clear Droplets and he was done.

I wanted to give a huge thank you to everyone for all your lovely and kind comments and also to the Newtons Nook family for having me as a guest, I really have loved it and I'm very grateful to have been a guest for you.

Happy Crafting!


  1. That's just a lovely card !! The watercoloring is perfect.

    1. You're welcome ! I totally mean it ! I think sometimes you might think that commenters leave the same old comments, but first I'm French and I might have a lack of English vocabulary and second, sometimes I just don't know what else to add. But every comment I make, I always mean it. Love from France, Marjorie

  2. Wonderful coloring, Tracy & I love how you made the frame!
