Happy Anniversary Newton's Nook Designs!


Welcome to Newton's Nook Designs Anniversary Blog Hop!  Did you come from Danielle's awesome blog?  I'm so excited to be participating- I can't believe it's already been a year since they've opened their doors.  To celebrate I've created two cards- one using a set from their first release and another using a set from the most recent release.  
My first card features one of my all time favorite stamp sets, Just Say Cheese- the images and puns totally crack me up!  Here is my card:


I wanted to create a bright, clean, fiesta inspired card since I was using the queso image.  I imagined it was sitting in a pretty vintage pyrex dish :)  I colored it with Copics, pulling the colors from the fun triangles paper by Bella Blvd. 


I didn't have the right colors for the tortilla chips so I improvised and dotted the colors that I did have to create a tortilla-ish look :)  It worked ok and I didn't have to worry about shading!

My next card uses a brand new set, Newton's Summer Vacation:


I thought it would be fun to use the same supplies on both cards.  I colored Newton lounging on the beach with my Copics again and fussy cut him out.  I used the leftover strips of paper and scalloped border along the bottom edge of my card and added him just above them.
  

These fun stamp sets always make me happy when I use them!  I'm so glad to be hopping along- I feel pretty lucky to be a part of this team- Newton's Nook Designs is a great company and I wish them many more years of success!
