A Tweet Thank You

Hi everyone! My crafting mojo is back! Towards the middle of December, I just couldnt find the time or just the creativity in me to make something. But today when I was browsing different card challenges, I saw this one for Newton’s Nook Inky Paws Challenge and I was struck with creativity.

The theme for this challenge is THANK YOU. I personally do not own any stamps from Newton’s Nook because I’ve only recently heard about them. But I have some stamps I have my eye on and I will definitely be purchasing some.


For this challenge, I decided to use some of the freebies on their website. This bird caught my eye —


So decided to use it and just get creative.


I colored the bird with Copic markers and cut it out. For the balloon, I used the Simon Says Stamp Balloon die on a piece of pink patterned paper from the Chalk Studio Collection from My Mind’s Eye. For the ribbon, I die cut the tiny ribbon from the Thank You For Your Support set from Simon Says Stamp on some Black Licorice card stock. And for thr string, I used some black and white twine from Doodlebug.

For the curved panel, I used another of the papers from the same My Mind’s Eye paper pad and adhered it towards the bottom of the card with the curved part closer to the top.

For the sentiment, I embossed a thank you greeting from the Simon Says Stamp Giving Thanks stamp set with VersaMark and embossed it with white embossing powder on a strip of black licorice card stock. I cut banner end and adhered it with foam tape.

To finish the card, I added some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

For a complete list of all the products I used, please check the supply list below.

That’s it for this card. Thanks for reading.



Life Is A Journey

Hey everybody! I’m sorry for the delay in posting cards – real life rook over for a while and crafting had to take a backseat.

This card is an entry for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.





The theme for the challenge is ANYTHING GOES! 

Here is my card —

For today’s card, I am going to use the supplies from the September Card Kit from Simon Says Stamp. My October Kit has arrived and let me tell you, I cannot wait to play with them. I just want to finish the cards I had planned for this kit before I use the new kit.

So here is my 3rd card for this kit –

Life Is A Journey

I started the card with some Neenah Dessert Storm card stock cut to a standard size card. Then I got a 3 1/2 by 4 piece of copy paper and used a protractor to curve the bottom edge. I used assorted strips of patterned paper from the Chalk Studio Collection from My Mind’s Eye that is included in the kit. I adhered them diagonally on the curved paper. I cut the the extra edges hanging and adhered the panel on the front of the card with foam adhesives. For the sentiment, I used two sentiments from the set which made out the name of the actual set – Life Is A Journey. I stamped the sentiment in ColorBox Chestnut Roan ink. To finish the card, I rounded all four corners of the card.

That’s it for this card. I will be back with two more cards for this kit this September before I start making cards with the October Kit.

Thanks for reading! 🙂
