Hey everyone!

This is my third post of the day, phew! Please scroll down to check out my posts for the Neat & Tangled release and the latest Runway Inspired Challenge too!!

I’m back to welcome to Day 1 of the Newton’s Nook February Release!

We have three *awesome* sets being released this month – and you’re totally invited to come party with us!

Today’s set is a cute little birthday set featuring our bear, Winston! Winston was recently named by our fans in a FB poll – what a great name!! There have been a few cute sets featuring Winston so you really should check them out!! But back to this release and the introduction of Winston’s Birthday!! The cute little set is in a brand new 4″x3″ mini size and contains enough images and sentiments to create some adorable cards!!

I decided to team Winston up with some images from last month’s Love à La Carte set and came up with this:

What do you think? I love how this turned out!

I started my stamping Winston and the cupcake from Love à La Carte using Archival Jet Black ink. I did some clever masking to make Winston appear to be holding the cupcake! Look at him, it’s so big he can barely hold it – awww!!

I then added the party hat, presents, sentiment and streamers and watercoloured the whole thing with Distress Markers. I wanted a ‘natural/messy’ watercolour look so I didn’t always stay in the lines. Love the way it turned out!! And to give the look of a textured paper I impressed the card front with the Linen & Canvas Impression Plate and I was all done!!

All the Newtonians (that’s what I’ve decided to call us, hehe!) are blog hopping today! Please be sure to join us and hop along and comment on each of the team’s creations! Read on because there’s a prize up for grabs!

  1. I am totally in love with this card! The bear is adorable and the streamers look so festive! I was going to ask where you got your gorgeous textured paper, but then say you used a impression plate – I think I need that!

  2. Love a la carte is the perfect set to combine with Winston! That cupcake – I love it!! I want to eat a cupcake that big ha ha! I loooooooooove how you colored these images! Seriously – you are so talented! This card is so sweet!

  3. Wow, you are busy! Your cupcake toting Winston is adorable, and the water-colouring works wonderfully. The streamers and gifts: delightful special touches!
