Newton's Nook Anniversary Blog Hop

Hi everyone! I'm excited about a special blog hop today!


Welcome to Newton's Nook Designs Anniversary Blog Hop!
Newton’s Nook Designs is so excited to be celebrating their One Year Anniversary - one whole year of getting our paws inky!  To celebrate we have an AMAZING blog hop featuring with our brand new design team and some AWESOME Special Guests! You are going to love all the fun inspiration they're sharing using Newton’s Nook Designs Stamps

I made two cards using the new releases. First up, I used the Newton's Daydream set:

Wishing You

Ahhh....Newton is hanging out in Hawaii. I think he likes the beach and the sun. I stamped Newton and the butterflies, and I watercolored the scene with Distress Markers. The sentiment is also from the Newton's Daydream set.

I added some hand-cut patterned papers from Studio Calico. Here's  close-up:


Wishing You



For my second card, I used the Beach Party set:

Life's a Beach

Winston looks ready for the beach! I stamped and watercolored him, and popped him up on a tag. The sentiment is also from Beach Party. For the background, I repeatedly stamped the flower from the set...it's not perfect, but I think it works for the beach. ;)
