CIC348--Newton's Nooks Designs

Welcome to this week's color challenge at Cupcake Inspirations.
We have a returning sponsor, Newton's Nook's Designs!
I have a special love with this sponsor because Newton, a darling cat,
is the company's namesake! I also love all the cute, whimsical
images that Jen, the owner, creates. If you aren't familiar with
Newton's Nooks Designs stamps and dies, please check them out
AND join us this week for your chance to win a $20 gift certificate!


For my card I used the following NND stamp sets:
I began the card by using Distress Inks and a stencil to create the background.
Then I stamped the images, colored them with Spectrum Noir markers, 
and finally fussy cut the images. 
I adhered the images and added some foam tape to make the flowers have dimension.
I then used a cloud die cut (Sweet & Sassy Stamps), stamped the sentiment, 
distressed the edges, and adhered with foam tape.
I adhered to the base card at an angle and trim overhanging edges.
The final touch was to add the bow to Winston's head.  Sorry about that Winston!

Other Challenges:  


  1. This is adorable, Indy! I love the two toned stenciled background and the way you combined the two sets! I'm sure Winston doesn't mind wearing a bow - we'll just call her "winnie" :)

  2. What a wonderful card!! Your coloring is spot on and love the stenciled background!

  3. WOW - this is super adorable - so you - and such a great bg!!! LOVE your card!

  4. This is so cute! I do like the stencilled background. The image is adorable too. So, sad that I didn't get chance to play this week. Deborah x

  5. I LOVE the background you created! So pretty but also so much fun! Love that you put a little bow on Winston, how cute!
