Hey there everyone! Welcome back to day two of the Newton’s Nook June release where we are revealing the Flower Garden stamp set.


I love the gorgeous floral images included in this set and I have used the poppies to create a set of clean and simple birthday cards.

Newton's Nook Reveal Day #2_3

Creating a clean and simple card doesn’t mean its a “quick” card… My friend Yana Smakula is well known for her stunning clean and simple creations and she explained this in depth (you can listen to her viewpoint and opinions of this here). I make clean and simple cards fairly often and I agree with her assessment of creating a clean and simple card; they are quick and easy to replicate, but the design process takes time.

To create my card set, I’ve stamped the poppies onto white cardstock and colored the images with Copics. I then fussy cut each flower out and popped them off of a tag, which was stamped and die cut using the Tag Sampler and Tags Times Two sets from Newton’s Nook).

I used a sentiment from the Garden Starter stamp set and layered the poppies on top of a red tag; the red tag was die cut using the Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Essentials die set and stamped with a diagonal stripes stamp from Simon Says Stamp).

To finish off the card I layered everything onto a white card base that I scored some lines into for a bit of added interest. I also adhered a few sequins from Pretty Pink Posh’s Sparkling Clear mix.
