Newton's Nook Designs Surprise Birthday Blog Hop

Saturday, February 17, 2018



Hi, there lovelies!
Today is a super special day, we're so glad you're joining us! 

All of the Newton's Nook Designs DT members have gotten together to throw a Surprise Birthday Blog Hop for Jennifer, the owner, illustrator, and all around wonderful person behind Newton's Nook!
We are so honored to get to work with Jennifer, and we all just love her so much and wanted everyone to celebrate your birthday with you! We hope you have the happiest birthday ever!


All of us made a card for Jen and of course, we all sent them to her from all over the world! {If mine doesn't get to you today, I am so sorry, Jen!!!}
Here goes my card ;-)



Newton's Nook Designs Aloha Newton Set - Naki Rager


So I live in Western NY and this winter has been pretty cold (we get random 50-degree weather here and there though), and I'm assuming that Wisconsin has very similar weather. I thought a happy birthday song from the beach might give Jen (and Jeff) a nice break from the cold weather!


Newton's Nook Designs Aloha Newton Set - Naki Rager


Oh, my goodness, isn't she just adorable!?
Sunset on the beach, playing the ukulele, don't you wish you were there with her!?
I stamped this cutie from the Aloha Newton Set with Antique Linen Distress Ink on watercolor paper and did some no-line watercoloring. I even gave her little lashes ;-)



Newton's Nook Designs Aloha Newton Set - Naki Rager


I borrowed the music notes image from the Llama Delivery Set, and the sentiments from the Cocktail Mixer Set. I stamped them with Encore Gold Ink, and heat embossed the music notes with iridescent embossing powder to give extra sparkle ;-)

The whole background was sponged with Distress Oxide Ink, the sky is Abandoned Coral and Worn Lipstick, the sand is Antique Linen, and the ocean is Cracked Pistachio. I used the Waves Stencil and Nuvo Glimmer Paste to create these sparkling waves. I had some paste left on my painting knife so scooped that up with my finger and rubbed it onto the pink sky, why waste such pretty thing!? ;-)
