On Saturday while I was up in my room crafting away, my husband brought me a happy mail package. It was my free Newton's Nook Designs stamp sets that I won two weeks ago from Ana's Instagram Contest. Also, I just recently found out that I won another set from Newton's Nook April release too! Excited for that to arrive! I hope my winning streaks continue! Just kidding. I can't be selfish. Anyway, I've heard of Newton's Nook but had never ordered or used their stamps before until now. I did a little research on Newton's Nook company after I won the contest and to my surprise found out that they are located in the Southern Wisconsin area where I'm also from! They're only about an hour and a half drive from where I am. I'm just excited to see a stamp company so close to me! :)
Here's a couple of cards I created using the sets that I won:
This first set is called Versatile Vases and it has a lot of different flowers and vases with cute sentiments. I think it's the perfect set for Mother's Day card too.
I used Simon Says Stamp Large Tag die to create my frame and stamped Hero Arts Envelope Patterned background stamp on the frame and window. I added a cream bow on top of the frame for a little bit more pizzazz.
This second set is called Newton's Birthday Bash. I kept this card pretty simple. I went with the banner color scheme for my card. I die cut some scalloped strips for Arrow, who is my MIL & FIL cat to sit on. The box of presents was paper pieced and I used Ranger white enamel dots on the yellow ribbon.
I absolutely am excited about this stamp company. I love a lot of their stamps images and know for sure that I will be adding a few more of their stamps set to my collection. I encourage you to check them out too, if you haven't already done so. Thanks for stopping by and see you again soon!
