Newton's Perfect Pumpkin + Labor Day Sales

Hey folks!

If you follow me on Facebook and Instagram, you will have seen the lil sneak peak I shared yesterday of the card I'm going to share with you today. Let me just say, that it makes my heart do flip flops when I see all of the amazing support from you guys! Thank you BUNCHES!!!

Halloween wouldn't be the same without showing some Newton's Nook love. There are loads of great Fall and Halloween themed stamps out there this year and I can't wait to work with them, but I have a soft spot for darling Kitty's so Newton is first up! I have another card in the works with this same set, but my brown Copic's (Yes, plural. Boooo!) died, so until I receive the refills, it'll have to wait. 

Newton's Nook is having a Labor Day Sale that runs until September 9th. Five dollars off you order of $25.00 or more, plus FREE shipping on orders of $50.00 or more. See website for details.

Masking is hands down one of my favorite techniques. I LOVE to create a scene, even a simple one, and masking opens a door of amazing possibilities. I especially love to do masking when I use a Newton stamp. Making this guy more "interactive" on a card is the bee's knees. Plus, he's cute!

The Stamp Set I used is Newton's Perfect Pumpkin and I started by stamping Newton and his pumpkin and the two of the smaller Pumpkin on some Inkadinkado Stamp Masking Paper and cut those out. Next, I stamped Newton and his pumpkin again on a piece of Neenah White Cardstock with Momento Tuxedo Black Ink. I used the mask I had cut to cover him up and stamped the smaller Pumpkin on both sides. then I simply colored everything with Copic's.

On a small strip of Simon Says Stamp Black Cardstock, I heat embossed the sentiment that come in the Stamp Set in Versamark and Simon Says Stamp White Embossing Powder. I cut another strip of the same Cardstock and heat embossed the Bats found in the Stamp Set with Versafine Black Onyx Ink a Simon Says Stamp Clear Embossing Powder

I mounted the Card Panel and Bat Strip to a Simon Says Stamp Blue Violet Cardstock Card Base. The twine came with my Newton's Nook order and I'm not sure the manufacturer, but Lawn Fawn Tangerine Hemp Cord would be perfect here too!

To finish it off I added some Clear Wink of Stella and a couple Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins.

That's it peeps. While I'm waiting for Copic Refills, I will have another card from the Simon Says Stamp September Card Kit to share. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy my card today!

Oh and before I go, Therm O Web is also having a Labor Day Sale. This one ENDS TODAY, so hurry! Free shipping on orders over $20.00. This is a good deal and a good way to stock up on supplies like Deco Foil without the added cost of shipping! Go check it out!

Until next time!


  1. Such an adorable card! Love the way you faded out the background and created the patterned paper strip with the set.

Making An Easy One Layered Card - Featuring Avery Elle and Copic Coloring

Hey folks!

I'm back today to share a super easy and super fast one layered card with you all!

It's no secret that I love to mask and build up the images on a card. However, sometimes it's great to skip the masking and get the same effect. That's what I've done on my card today folks.

I'm a sucker for butterflies and if you make them rainbow and I will clap my hands like a demented seal. For real. So today I used the Butterflies Stamp Set by Avery Elle and did some basic Copic Coloring (color choices in thumbnail links below) in a rainbow color scheme.

On Neenah White Cardstock, I stamped my images in Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink with my MISTI Stamping Tool. You don't need a MISTI, but I'm a manic and it's almost impossible for me to line up my stamps again with a…

The stamp set I used today is Ah-mazing! It's the Hello Lovely Stamp Set by Concord & 9th and I'm tellin ya folks, if you're looking for something that has a whole lotta wow factor AND is easy, this is your stamp set.

Using my MISTI Stamping Tool, I stamped my Neenah White Cardstock Panel with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink.

There are some really groovy stamps in the set if you wanted to just ink them up and stamp them within the outline image, but I LOVED the idea of coloring this bad boy in.


Altenew - Garden Treasure + Copic Coloring

Hey folks!

Happy-ish Monday! I don't know what in the halibut it is peeps, but every time I think I'm going to do something different. Break out some mediums I've haven't used in a while. Do something other than flowers, it's abracadabra I have myself a card panel with lots of pretty masked flowers that must be colored in with Copic's. Oy. So, stop me if you've heard this one!

Doesn't Altenew have the most fab flower stamps EVER? I never get tired of coloring their flowers. So for my card today, I chose to use the Garden Treasure Stamp Set. I love it. It's a nice sized 6" x 8" set with all of those gorgeous layering options Altenew is known for.

As usual, I start…
