Big Wishes Because You’re Worth It!

Hello Newton’s Nook fans!  I don’t know about you but I seem to be always running out of birthday cards!  If you haven’t seen all of the new stamps and dies from last week’s March release, I think you should head on over to the Newton’s Nook online store to check out all of the amazing birthday-themed stamps, coordinating dies and stencils.

For my project today, I am showcasing the Newton’s Birthday Balloons stamp set and coordinating dies the Holding Happiness stamp set,  the Sky Borders die,  the Pines and Holly die set and the Newton Dreams of Paris stamp set.

I started out by stamping my image on Neenah solar white and colored it with my Copic markers.  I die-cut the image with the coordinating die.

I used my handmade Sky Borders stencil and my distress oxide inks to color a piece of Bristol smooth card stock to create my pastel clouds background.  This is a really simple card but I love how it turned out.


I finished my design by stamping the sentiment with Versafine Black Onyx ink and added the white bow from the Pines and Holly die set.   I also added the hearts from the Newton Dreams of Paris stamp set.

Here’s my card:

Don’t you just love this stamp set?  I love that I can mix and match my stamps to create my scene for my cards.  I hope you like it and got inspired today.  I have listed and linked the supplies I used below.  Have a great week!

Today, the design team is showcasing the Holding Happiness stamp set and coordinating dies with the Bubbly and Confetti stencils.   I know I probably say this every month but you are all going to love this month’s stamps, dies and stencils.



For my first card,  I started by using my small sponge dauber and different inks to color my Bristol smooth white card stock and create a colorful background.  I also stamped my images with my memento tuxedo black ink on Neenah solar white card stock and colored them in with my copic markers.  I die-cut the images using the coordinating dies.


Using a scallop border die from my stash, I die-cut two pieces of yellow card stock.  Since this card is meant for a birthday, I wanted to create a very happy and colorful card using pinks, blues and yellows.

To finish my design, I stamped my sentiment using my Versamark ink onto a piece of black card stock and heat-embossed it with white embossing powder.  Here is the first card:

For my second card, I wanted the colorful balloons to pop and be the center of attention so I decided to go for a white on white background.  I die-cut 3 pieces of 100 lb. Neenah Classic Index card stock using my Hexagon dies.   I colored the images using my Copic markers.    Here is the second card:
