Today we are finally revealing a stamp set and the coordinating dies featuring Newton. Yaaay!!! 🙂 In case you don’t know Newton is an adorable sweet orange tabby cat and the inspiration for NND’s name and logo. This month he is bring you a special delivery right from a mail box in Newton’s Happy Mail stamp set. I’m sure this set will be loved by all cardmakers and not only crazy cat ladies like me! LOL!

NND is giving this stamp set away to one lucky winner so make sure you read all the way to the bottom of this post to see how to win!

I decided to play with a mail theme on my card and colored with copic markers the cute kitty and the mailbox in red and blue tones adding some more neutral grays as well.

Then I created my own “mail style” pattern paper to match the colored stamp since I didn’t have anything suitable in my stash. I helped myself with a diagonal line on a cutting mat I always work on. I took a narrow strip of a copic friendly card stock and marked with a pencil diagonal lines shifting the paper half of an inch every time. Then I simply added colors with the same copic markers I used on the mail box.

I wanted to keep this card very clean and simple since I liked how it turned out, so I didn’t add any other embellishment except of a shimmer pen plus a coat of Glossy Accents on top to simulate the metallic shine on the mailbox.

  1. Stunning, I just adored that stripe on the side and you’ve colored Newton perfectly!! So bright and beautiful!

  2. First of all, crazy cat ladies unite! I am right there with you 😂😂. I love the card and was even more impressed when I read your description and realized you created that border, it wasn’t patterned paper! Such a great idea, and it looks so good I thought it WAS patterned paper! I like that you stuck to the red, white and blue theme, it really does say mail/airmail and goes so well with this stamp set.

  3. Hi Tatiana, it seems to me that you live in Italy! 🙂 It’s right? …I’m italian 🙂
    Your card is adorable!! Newton is my all time favourite cat on the web (I love cats, I have six…!). You coloured him and the mailbox so well!! Love your clever use of the cutting mat to create the stripes on the edge, too! It’s a fabulous idea and you have made a very accurate work!
    I think that this new release is very useful and love it so much! Thanks for the chance in this fabulous hop!

  4. That’s beautiful! I love the red, white, and blue strip you created with Copics, I never thought of doing that and it looks wonderful. Pinning it!
