NND & 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!

I've created two cards today.... One that's bright and cheery and a Winter card. I'm not a fan of Summer at all (Weather Wise) so I dream of it being cooler outside every day! My first card features the Newton Loves Coffee Set, Clear Round Drops Mix and the Dotted Shaker Tag Die from Studio Katia


I die cut a piece of pattern paper using a stitched rectangle die and then I adhered it to a Turquoise card base. Then I used the rectangle die from the Dotted Shaker Tag Die and die cut a Window in the front of the card. Then I die cut a piece of White card stock with the same rectangle die and stamped the image onto it through the window. This way Newton is on the inside of the card but shows through the Window. I colored the image in with Copic Markers and coordinated the Dots on the cup with those in the paper. I stamped the sentiment onto a Banner and adhered it in the upper Left. Then I added some of the Clear Round Drops on a few of the Dots with some Glossy Accents. 


For my second card, I used the Dotted Shaker Tag Die to create a shaker on the front of the card. 


The Dotted Shaker card is unique because it cuts dots in an outline around the tag. I die cut a piece of pattern paper creating the dots around the tag. Then I adhered the panel to a Grey card base. I die cut the Dotted Tag again from a coordinating piece of pattern paper and then again using the rectangle shape in the center to create an opening.  


I stamped some of the snowflakes from the Newton's Nook Sweater Weather set on a piece of White cardstock and used that as the back of the shaker. I created the shaker and added the Winter Wonderland Fusion Mix from Studio Katia. I adhered the shaker tag in the center of the tag opening on the front of the card. I stamped and colored the fox image from Sweater Weather and colored her in with Copics and then fussy cut the image out and adhered it to the Shaker. I really like this Dotted Shaker Tag Die it's very unique and great for your stash!

  10. Hi Holly!! Your cards are beautiful! Although I do enjoy the warm weather just as much as the cold weather, I find myself wanting to make winter cards all the time. I don't know what it is, maybe just the softer and more muted colors of the winter ❤
