Hello and welcome!!!
I’m so happy you’ve joined me today and even more excited to be on the Newton’s Nook Designs blog sharing my personalized birthday card!
I mixed and matched a lot of fun stuff creating this project! First of all I made my own stencil using the balloon die from Fabulous Frenchies die set. Next I added balloon strings using the coordinating Fabulous Frenchies stamp set and a partial masking technique. You can watch all the process right here.
For the background I used Mustard Seeds, Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry, Twisted Citron, Peacock Feathers and Blueprint Sketch Distress inks. The big balloon in the center of the card front comes from Balloon Shaker die set. You can easily give a personalized twist to your cards using alphabet and number dies. My “18” comes from Essential Alphabet die set. The tiny heat embossed sentiment is from cute Newton’s Birthday Bash stamp set. And finally for the accessories I used Fabulous Frenchies stamp and die sets (the same from the background) plus Papa Bear stamp and die sets and Cosmic Newton die set for tiny stars.
As promised, here’re all the exact copic markers I used on my card: RV21, Y02, YG01, BV02.
As always thanks so much for stopping by!
Hello and welcome!
Today I’ve popped in with an inspiration project made for the SugarPea Designs monthly Mix It Up challenge. You have all month to play along and make a project using just the inspiration, just the sketch or Mix it Up and use both! It is totally up to you! You can find all the rules at SugarPea blog right here!!!
Creating this card, I played with a fun Party Balloon die. Actually this little die was meant to be used with the coordinating stamp set, but it’s so perfect as a stand alone element. Love such versatile products plus it has a great price point. I used an inexpensive watercolor paper and die cut the balloon several times. Next I used Tombow markers and the color palette from the inspiration photo and made a super easy watercoloring.
Here’re all the exact markers used here: n.090, n.243, n.425, n.493, n.673, n.723, n.725, n.873, n.912.
Working on the layout, I made more die cutting using Card Front Element Builder set, SugarCut You and Sugar & Spice pattern paper. I stacked together a few layers of the word “you” for an extra finish touch before adhering it to the card front and finally heat embossed the sentiment from Sweet Sentiments – You stamp set. Assembling everything together, I added a bit of dimension using a foam tape.
Hope you like this cute and simple card! Now it’s your turn to link up your creations for a chance to win a $50 Gift Certificate from SugarPea Designs! Can’t wait to see what you create!!! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!!!

The stamping was done with VersaFine Onyx Black ink since it’s crisp and waterproof.

Hello and welcome!
I’m so pleased to be sharing in the excitement of STAMPtember with our friends at Simon Says Stamp! Today I’m sharing with you a stamp set created by SugarPea Designs exclusively for this event called Cuddly Cacti. There is also a coordinating die set and you can purchase them as a bundle or separately!
This set is only available at Simon Says Stamp and while supplies last!
Here’s your look at Cuddly Cacti.
Creating this card, I started with a Bristol paper from Strathmore brand, stamped some cute cacti using VersaFine Onyx Black ink since it’s waterproof and fussy cut all the elements. Next I proceeded with coloring using Tombow markers. I’ve just got a small pack and felt totally in love with this new to me watercolor medium.
Here’s the complete list of all the colors used: n.126, n.673, n.723, n.725, n.912, n.990, n.992.
I decided to keep everything clean and simple since the Cuddly Cacti are so cute and adorable. So I prepared a regular A2 size white card base and a scalloped frame die cut from Card Front Element Builder set. Using a piece of a sticky tape I masked a horizontal line and blended Antique Linen and Wilted Violet Distress inks with a very light hand. Once shaped the sentiment in a fish-tailed banner, I assembled everything with bit of dimension using a foam tape just for something little extra finish touch.
Hope you like this cute and simple card! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!!!

Now let’s see today’s fantastic introductions that include Birthday Balloons stamp set and Party Balloon SugarCut.
I’m very excited about today’s reveals because there’s something about balloons that makes me happy and transforms an ordinary day into a party one. The little Party Balloon SugarCut couldn’t be any perfect and clever. In fact it can be easily used on its own or pared with Birthday Balloons stamp set.
Here’s how I proceeded working on this card. First of all, I die cut some balloons from Neenah Solar White paper using Party Balloon SugarCut, of course. Next I heat embossed the fun patterns from Birthday Balloons set on a few balloons along with the matching sentiment. I reached for Distress inks and an ink blending tool to add colors to the die cuts keeping my hand a bit more heavy towards the bottom part of the balloons and going more easy towards the top to make them look tridimensional. Here’re all the colors I used here: Squeezed Lemonade, Spiced Marmalade, Abandoned Coral, Picked Raspberry, Peacock Feathers. Finally I prepared an A2 size white card base and popped all the elements on a foam tape just for something little extra.
