Newton's Nook Designs/Studio Katia Blog Hop


Welcome to the Summer Fun Collaboration Blog hop with Newton's Nook Designs and Studio Katia! Both teams are celebrating the start of summer with fun and colorful cards using stamps from Newton's Nook Designs and dies and embellishments from Studio Katia. There's prizes too! Both companies have a prize to give away too so make sure you read all the way to the bottom of this post to see how to win!

Hi everyone, Amanda here!  You should have arrived from Olga's blog, if not, you'll find all the DT's blog links below if you'd like to start at the beginning!

Today I'm showing you 2 cards I've made using the Newton's Nook Designs Stamp Set, Aloha Newton and Studio Katia's Stitched Nested Creative Square Dies.  I decided to make one card a shaker to show off Newton in his hammock, with some Studio Katia's Caribbean Mist Sequins and Clear Iridescent Seed Beads mixed together to look like the foam from the ocean washing up on the sand.  I just love how it turned out!

For my non-shaker card, I used the Creative Square die again in the largest size and created the background with distress inks. I also cut out a rounded edge of the next die size down, to create my sandy beach at the bottom. I fussy cut and colored a different image of Newton from the same stamp set, Aloha Newton and positioned him under the moon with his guitar.  I also stamped a palm tree from Paradise Palms.  I added a few Clear Round Drops  and loved how they blended into the scene!

Keep scrolling for info on winning prizes!  And thanks for stopping and leaving a comment!
