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!My first thought when I saw the summer theme was a birthday card. Maybe because it is because my oldest son is a “beginning of summer” baby, haha! But something about these bright happy sequins from Studio Katia and this adorable tag die screamed birthday to me. After consulting with my youngest son (this card was from him for his brother), we chose the Newton Loves Cake stamp to color for the card. I love this little Newton and I colored his cupcake with Copics to match the sequins. Adorable!! This tag die makes creating a shaker super easy too.With the black card stock, it was hard to see the tag details in my full picture so I wanted to show you a closeup too. I created my own mix of sequins with the Sunny Side Up, Enchanted Sea and Lipstick Red Sequins. I have to admit that Newton looks pretty proud of his giant cupcake, don’t you think?! Again, little brother thought the striped paper behind the tag made the card look like a “boy card” so I trusted his judgement. I tied on some red ribbon and black baker’s twine to finish the tag. The verdict??? As soon as the birthday boy picked up the envelope, he knew it was a shaker card. And apparently even 14 year old boys who are very, very cool cannot resist shaking a shaker card! *smile* Now you need to get on with the hop but first…
We are giving away TWO prizes – one prize pack from Studio Katia and one $25 store credit from Newton’s Nook Designs!
