Hey everyone! Happy Wednesday!
I’m up on the Newton’s Nook blog today with an awesome card – and I finally created something that doesn’t use Newton! I figured it was the turn of Winston to shine so I pulled out Winston’s Birthday and got to work!
Here’s what I came up with:
Don’t all the Winstons look like such wise guys?! Totally cracks me up!
I started with a Rustic White card base. I wanted to accessorise the Winstons with different hats so I pulled out my Sweet Stamp Shop Too Hip set and stamped some of the hats onto a Post-It Note and trimmed them out to create some masks. I worked out the relative positions of where the Winstons would go and, one by one, stamped them with the masks in place using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I then stamped the hats and also decided to add the glasses and bow tie to two of the Winstons too – so fun!
I wanted to have it look like two of the Winstons were ganging up on their friend with they birthday remark, but I wanted something subtle. I chose one of the dies from the X-Cut Speech Bubbles die set and impressed it into the base, then stamped my sentiment inside it!
Sometimes the simplest ideas are the best, don’t you think? 🙂
Please do leave a comment on the Newton’s Nook blog – and while you’re there take a look at the latest Inky Paws Challenge too!
Thanks so much for stopping by! I would love it if you left some love before you went on your way!

What a great scene …. love how the Winstons are looking doubtful … like how on Earth can you be having another birthday already?! I had to look twice to realize it was the same Winston, you just made him look different. Fun, FUN!
