Oh la la by Debbie features Newton Loves Paris by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook

Perk Up!



I had time to play with some great challenges. This card features YNS--Perk Up! I used cork board paper to make the background squares. I then stamped and colored the images, fussy cut them out, and adhered them to the cork. I kept the color scheme very "coffee"ish.  I liked how I created the steps needed to perk up--grind, brew, drink up!  :)

For my card, I used Frantic Stamper's Diamond Grid Panel Die.  I die cut the panel and then laid the panel over my card based. Using Oxide Inks, I then sponged on the ink.  I just love how these panel dies can be used as a stencil.  Fun!  I then stamped and colored the wizard and owl (Newton's Nook Designs).  I then sprinkled on some sequins.  I love how this all turned out.  :)

Make Puddles


With school just around the corner, I wanted to take time to play with some challenges before I'm drowning in school work. (Pun intended.)  Today's card features this darling image from Newton's Nook Designs.  With my recent move to Northeastern Washington, I think this is a perfect sentiment for the upcoming rainy season!  I paper pieced using papers from Authentique-Seasons Essentials. I just love those dark blues with the green...gorgeous!
