Hey all! My name is Jessie Banks, and I am over the moon to be guesting for Newton's Nook for January! I did a happy dance in my living room when I read the email! I have always been artsy, my parents put bristol board around the bottom of the sun porch when I was little so I wouldn't colour on the walls! I am now a 30 something, mother of one, who never grew out of colouring! I live in small town Saskatchewan, Canada and have been cardmaking now for 5ish years. I am a lover of all mediums, markers, watercolours, coloured pencils, chalk, pastels, you name it I will put it on a card! Sometimes all of them on the same card! You can find my blog at and on Istagram jess_c_lee. I can't wait to share some fun inspiration with you this month!


Hey everyone! I am absolutely honoured to be guest designing for Newton's Nook for the month of January! I can't wait to share all my projects with you all! But for today I have a party card, considering its New Years day and lots of people celebrate it, I figured it was super fitting!
So I pulled out the Toucan Party set for this little gem!

Toucan Party Card by our January Guest Designer Jessie Banks | Toucan Party Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I created the background with Distress Inks, Broken China, Salty Ocean and Blueprint Sketch. Then added my little Toucans on top. The sentiment was embossed with white embossing powder on black paper, just a few enamel dots from deep in my stash finished off the front of this card.

Copics used: Black - N9, N7, N5, N3 Yellow - Y17, Y15, Y13, Y11 Blue - BG07, BG05, BG01, BG000 Red - R59, R29 ,R05, R02 Green - YG17, YG16, YG03, YG01 Pink - RV17, RV14, RV11 Purple - V09, V05, V01 Brown - E27, E25, E23, E21

I hope you enjoyed my little card today!
