It's Your Birthday #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton's Christmas Cuddles stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

For my stop on this hop I created a sweet and colorful birthday card featuring my ever favorite kitty Newton! He is an adorable sweet orange tabby cat and the inspiration for NND name and logo. Today I used a non traditional for a birthday theme Newton’s Christmas Cuddles stamp set that has a few super adorable and versatile images so it was super easy to interpret it in a different way by simply changing the color palette!

I obviously chose NND logo colors and colored the sweet kitty as Newton to give a personal touch to the card! I used my win win combo which consists of Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers, Strathmore Bristol paper and a small water brush from Pentel. For the layout I used Frames & Flags die set and added a heat embossed sentiment from Newton’s Birthday Bash set. Finally a kitty paw pattern was added to the background through Pawprint stencil with Distress Oxide ink in Spiced Marmalade color and an ink blending tool!
