Newton’s Nook Reveal Day #2

Hello everyone! Welcome back to day two of the Newton’s Nook April release! Today is the reveal of the new Sampler Tags stamp set, which not only coordinates with the Tags Two die set, but also is a perfect stamp set to combine with the Newton Unwinds set… and that’s what I’ve done for this card!


I love the fun little stamps in the new Sampler Tag set; the sentiments are so much fun and there are a lot of cute little images that are great accent pieces to a card. The stitch stamps are really unique and I used them both to create a subtle background pattern on my card (Frosty Pink ink from Altenew stamped onto Cotton Candy cardstock from Simon Says Stamp). I also used the sweet heart yarn ball to pair with one of the cats from Newton Unwinds; these images are colored with Copics and I’ve broken down the colors for you below:

  • cat: E0000, E51, E30 (body), E31, E33, E35, E57 (stripes), RV00, R32 (pink blush and ears)
  • pink yarn ball:RV00, RV02, RV04
  • purple yarn ball: V20, V22, V25, V28
  • ground: C1, C3

After coloring the images, I cut them out; dies for the images from Newton Unwinds and scissors for everything else. I adhered them all onto a circle I die cut using the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circles die set and stamped a sentiment using black and light purple inks.

To finish things off, I added a hemp bow along the bottom and tied a pink button from the 28 Lilac Lane’s Pretty Princess embellishment bottle.

    This is my first time visiting your blog and I am having a great time with your posts. That Newton card is adorable! I love everything about it — the colors, the sentiment, the creative use of various dies and the overall layout. Like I said, everything! You put a song in my heart and a smile on my face today. Thank you.

    This is so lovely! I love how you combined the new set with the Newton Unwinds image – such a fun idea! I also love the background you created with the row of stitches! Thanks for the awesome inspiration today!

    You did an amazing job pairing the kitty with the ball of yarn.
    I love to paper-piece so that wouldn’t bother me.
    the card is wonderful. I’d be thrilled to get one like
    that in the mail.
    thanks for sharing.

    Love, love, LOVE that you put Newton in here, because that’s exactly what cats seem to look at us and say right after they make a mess! Too funny!!
