Cats and Coffee


Hello Everyone!

I hope the day is treating you well.

I have a fun card to share with you here on the blog!


For this card I used

Caffeinated cats

 Time for Coffee (sentiment)

Bright Basics Paper Pad

Frames and Flags Die Set

Basic Frames Die Set

Banner Duo Die Set

Cats and coffee my two of my favorite things!

I started this card with the Bright Basics Paper Pad

 I selected the blue card stock with white hearts.

Since this stamp is going to take up most of the card front,

 I just wanted a hint of something cute in the background.

I cut out the card stock with the largest stitched rectangle die from the Basic Frames Die Set.

I also used white card stock to cut out the largest scalloped

rectangle die from The Frames and Flags Die Set.

These two dies fit perfectly together and make the cutest card front !

I created a card base using matching cardstock and then layered my two die cut layers on top.

I then stamped out Caffeinated Cats.

I chose my favorite bold Marker colors and colored in the image.

I just love these large stamps; it is so therapeutic to color everything in.

Once my coloring was done, I fussy cut out the image leaving a slight border.

Then I placed foam tape on the back of my cut-out image and attached it to the front of my card.

I created a banner from the Banner Duo Die Set using some white card stock.

My sentiment comes from the Time For Coffee Stamp Set.

I finished this card by adding a bit of sparkle pen over the top of the image.

I hope you get to try this card for yourself!

 Thanks for stopping by


 Hope you have an awesome day!


Stay crafty my friends!

Fun Flower Card with Newton


So excited to share this fun card with you today

For the Newton’s Nook Blog.

 For this card I used

Newton’s Flower Garden

Cat-itude Stamp Set

Basic Frames Die Set

Speech Bubble Die

Floral Lace Stencil

Sometimes I just get in mood to play around with items in the studio.

This was the case for the background of this card.

I felt like I hadn't been using my stencils enough lately, so I decided just to mess around with a few.

I randomly picked up the Floral Lace Stencil and decided to use it.

I went to the scarp pile and randomly picked this burnt orange cardstock.

Since the card stock is so dark, I chose to use Picked Raspberry and Kitch Flamingo Distress Oxides.

Unfortunately, when I get in these creative moods I forget to take pictures.

ths picture came after the card was created.

Starting this card normally by tapping the stencil down to the card stock

 Just blending my 2 oxide choices together starting with dark at the ends and blending in.

Nothing fancy, just blend till you like it.

Once the blending was done, I placed the card top aside to dry a bit.

I love the way the floral background came together.

  Then I started sifting through my Newton stamps to find a stamp that would best fit this.

I decided on Newton's Flower Garden, this would be fun, and the style would go great.

I stamped, colored, and die cut out my images.

I also stamped out a couple of extra butterflies because I knew I was going to use those.

The stitched frame in the Basic Frames Die Set is one of my new favorites.

This die makes creating a card front and base so easy!

Wanting to use a sentiment from the Cat-itudeStamp Set I had

to come up with a creative way to place my sentiment.

I used the Speech Bubbles Die upside down.

To assemble this card, I started with the upside-down speech bubble and placed it on the card front first.

I added on my Kitty image popped up with foam tape and covered up the speech bubble dibble.

My butterflies went on next followed by a few matching gems.


This was such a fun and easy card!

I hope you get to try this card for yourself!

 Thanks for stopping by

  Hope you have an awesome day

 Stay crafty my friends!
