Newton's Nook Designs First Anniversary Blog Hop!


Welcome friends, followers and hoppers!  Newton's Nook Designs is so excited to be celebrating their ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY - one whole year of getting our paws inky!  To celebrate we have an amazing blog hop featuring our brand new design team and some AWESOME Special Guests!  You are going to love all the fun inspiration they're sharing using Newton's Nook Designs stamps.

In honor of Newton's Nook Designs' 1st anniversary I decided to use one of the 1st NND stamp sets that I purchased, 'Just Say Cheese,' along with a technique I used for my 1st post as a NND design team member - the waterfall card, for my hop creation.


If you have never made a waterfall card before, they are much easier than they look.  There is a good tutorial for them here.  One of my BIL's birthday is coming up, so I decided to make a birthday themed card.  Here is what it looks like from the front, and here are close-ups of the different waterfall panels:


(this next one also uses the party hats, candles & confetti from 'Newton's Birthday Bash')



(and finally)


I stamped the little mousie on a Post-It note and cut him out to act as a mask and then stamped the cheese wedge over him so he looks like he is sitting on top.  So, do you think my BIL will like this birthday card?  or is it too 'cheesy' - BWAHAHAHA! (yes, I amuse myself).

I have to say, this is my second term with NND, and I feel SO lucky to be a part of such a terrific company - adorable images to create with, a fantastically talented & sweet owner/illustrator, and camaraderie with a fun groups of creative ladies!  Thank you so much Jen for this opportunity.  I am humbled and blessed and wish you continuing success with NND and every happiness in life.  And thank you to my teamies as well for your support and continuing inspiration as well!
