Newtons Nook Designs – January Release Day 3 ~ Pug Hugs


Oh my goodness! Are you ready for today’s total cuteness?  Today is release day (Day 3) at Newton’s Nook Designs.  I hope you have been checking out the daily posts since Monday.  The whole design team at NND has been busy creating wonderful projects to give you some daily inspiration. You also have a chance to win each stamp set during release week so check out the details I have indicated at the end of this blog post.



For my cards, I used this cute Pug Hugs stamp set and Pug Hugs coordinating dies, stamping my images on Neenah solar white card stock with my memento tuxedo black ink. I colored the Pugs using my Copic markers and die-cut the images with its coordinating dies with my die-cutting machine.


Here is my first card:


Since Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, I just had to make a Valentine-themed Pug card!  I created my own patterned paper by combining the hearts from the Pug Hugs stamp set and the Flirty Flamingos stamp set.




Don’t you just love those cute Pugs?  This stamp set will be available for purchase on January 20 at 8:00 a.m. CST.

  1. Beautiful cards 🙂 i love the pops of color! the pug hugs is such an adorable stamp set!! Thanks for sharing.


  2. Aww – this is just fantastic! I love the pop of blue you added to the center pug on your first card. It really adds so much character to the pug and to your card. I also adore your second card with the pug in the heart – it looks so earnest and I love the sentiment you chose!


  3. I love the bright colors you used on both cards. The pugs are adorable popping through the windows on the first card and I love the pink hearts you stamped on the second cards. Pugs are so darn cute.


  4. Great cards! The three pugs are my favorite. Who would think that pugs look great in bow ties? Perfect coloring and wonderful layouts.


  5. Everything about your cards are wonderful! I love the pugs sticking out from the windows and the scallop border designs on your card! The pug in the heart is just as cute!


  6. What adorable cards! I love how you used the three images on the first cards, and how wonderfully you colored them. The second card I adored how you created your own background and then placed the adorable pug front and center. You really showed how sweet this set is!
