Newton's Nook Designs: Masculine Cards

Hello crafty friends!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! A few friends and I went out to the movies on Saturday and watched "The Gift." It was alright for the most part. I enjoyed it. And yesterday, I pretty much craft all day. I stopped a couple hours here and there. My brother-in-law and nephew stopped over for a little visit in the morning and in the evening the husband and I took a stroll down to the harbor to watch the sunset. It was such a beautiful summer evening. I really wish I would have brought my camera to take a photo for you girls. Maybe next time.

Today, I have two cards to share. One is for my Father-in-law's birthday and the other one is for my awesome brother who was very thoughtful to send me some amazing stamps goodies he found while on his trip to New York. Both of today's cards featured Winston's from Newton's Nook Designs Winston's Birthday set.

For the first card, I created some signs using partial of the sentiment "You're Toad-ally Awesome!" from Simon Says Stamp Quite The Pair set and "Thanks" from Lawn Fawn Woodgrain Backdrops set. Next, I stamped the card base with the woodgrain background stamp in Simon Says Stamp Khaki ink. I used Tumbled Glass distress ink for the background and white heat embossed the clouds from Lawn Fawn Into The Woods. The grasses are die-cut using Lawn Fawn Grassy Border dies in Simon Says Stamp Green Leaf and Green Apple cardstocks. Winston was colored with Copic marker and carefully fussy cut. I decided to cut his arms out to make it look like he was holding the sign.

The second card, I used the birthday accessories in Winston's Birthday set to create the scene. Everything was colored with Copic markers. The balloon have a coat of glossy accents. I added some clear Wink of Stella to the hat, cupcake and present. The last thing I did for this card was stamping the sentiment with VersaMark and blacked heat embossing it.

These two cards didn't really take that long to put together. Once all the pieces was die-cut and fussy cut, the assembling of the cards went pretty fast. That is all for me today! I hope you enjoy today's card! Thank you so much for stopping in! Wishing you all a fabulous week!
