Newton’s Nook DT Birthday Blog Hop

NNDSurprise Birthday Blog Hop


Today is a super special day, we’re so glad you’re joining us!  All of the Newton’s Nook Designs DT members have gotten together to throw a surprise birthday blog hop for Jennifer, the owner, illustrator and all around wonderful person behind Newton’s Nook!
We are so honored to get to work with Jennifer, and we all just love her so much and wanted everyone to celebrate her birthday with you!   Jennifer, we hope you have the happiest birthday ever!  


For my simple card below, I am showcasing the Newton Loves Cake stamp set and coordinating dies with the Baked From Scratch stamp set.  I love mixing and matching stamp sets to create my cards.




I started out by stamping my images onto Neenah solar white card stock and colored the images in with my Copic markers.  I die-cut my storybook window die with another 110 lb. white card stock.


I used the Tumbling Hearts stencil to ink-up my card panel.  I adhered my storybook window onto my card base, then used foam adhesives to adhere my colored images.  I finished my design by adding glossy accents to the candles, the collar and the little hearts.  Here’s my card:



Since I colored more than one image, I decided to make another card.  Here’s my second one:

  4. Happy Birthday, Jennifer! So fun to celebrate seeing your adorable designs put to such fun use with all these lovely birthday cards. Such fun cards – I love the contrast between the soft, colorful backgrounds and the white frames. They really give the stamped images some impact. Great designs!
