Hello crafty friends. I’m back today for day 6 of Cupcake Inspirations 400th challenge birthday bash. You still have time to link up your designs featuring a birthday card inspired by one of our 399 previous challenges. If you need help finding inspirations, then please go to our Pinterest page.
Today we are spot lighting one of our amazing sponsors who have supported us all these years.
Today we are spotlighting Newtons Nook, who is generously offering a $25 gift certificate to one random participant this week.
Today I am playing with Newtons Nook Boo Crew stamp set. I was inspired by the challenge #233 which was a theme challenge. The theme was halloween, and since my kids seem to have a ton of friends who October birthday I actually need a deeper stock of halloween birthday cards. Ha, two birds one stone.
In all seriousness, I loved these halloween images from Newtons and am always looking for a way to use them year round. I stamped out a scene using all the main players, masking where I needed too. I colored in the image using my Inktense pencils, trying to keep things pretty simple. I added some glitter pen to the princess puppy. Even the owl’s hat got some glitter. I stamped out a Stampendous birthday sentiment, masking off the ‘bir’ and adding the ‘boo’ from the newton’s pack. I trimmed the watercolor paper, and matted it with some black card stock. I added some colored halloween themed paper under it, and called it a day.
Take some time to go peak at the Design Sweeties’ amazing cards. You won’t regret it. And come back tomorrow for our last day of the 400th birthday bash.
