Inky Paws Challenge

Hello!

It is Friday already and it means it is time for Inky Paws Challenge at Newton’s Nook Designs blog.

This month it’s a color challenge, using a Spring Bouquet as inspiration. Looking for the colors – Pale Pink – Yellow – Lilac – Soft Green. Just lovely! :)

NND_IPC09_color

I chose to play with couple of stamps which are Versatile Vases (solid flowers), Love Grows (hearts) and Sweetheart Tails (xoxo). The design of the card is simple, I really wanted to show what you can do with the different stamps by putting them in one card.

NND Color Challenge

Jennifer shared some free digital stamps at her blog. Why not to try?

Sharing with you NND proejcts

Hello and Happy Monday everybody!

Today I would like to share with you three cards that I made for Newton’s Nook Designs blog.

Let me tell you, I really-really liked to work with NND stamps. Great quality, awesome designs and wonderful atmosphere in the DT. Thank you Jennifer. :)

Mom + Child

First Card

This first card is pretty simple in design. Even though I used three stamp sets to create it: Love Grows, Versatile Vases, and Wild Child sets. I love how it turned out.

You are a rare find

Second Card

Second card can be great for both Mother’s Day or Fathers Day. I created a little scene using patterned paper and cute bears from Wild Child stamp set.

You are the best

Third Card

Last card… Soft colors, not too many papers, several embellishments and sweet owl from Sweetheart Tails.

You may also stop at NND blog and see these cards as well too.

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother’s Day

You're the best! Raccon

Дорогие мои, здравствуйте! Спасибо, что пришли ко мне в гости.

Обожаю этого милашку енота от компании Newton’s Nook Designs. Эта открытка к Дню Рождения уже отправлена к адресату. Как бы хотелось, чтобы эта открытка улыбнула именниницу.

Спасибо вам, что оставляете комментарии. Вы – лучшие! А ваши слова значат многое для меня.

Всем счастливых моментов и хорошего дня,

Лена

A card…

 

Hello!

How are you doing? Hope everybody is doing well.

Just a card for today. Retro Sketch inspired the layout of this card.

Stamp is from Newton’s Nook Designs.

Thank you for stopping by my friends, you make my day!

Hugs,

Elena

You stole my Heart

Привет!

Спасибо, что заглянули. А у меня просто открытка сегодня. Скетч – от Retro Sketch.

Всем всего хорошего и спасибо, что помните про меня,

Лена

You are foxy…

Hello!

Another snowy day in OH. It was already 6th day this year when school was cancelled. We had 6 inches of snow covered with ice. Very heavy snow… I got up at 3 a.m. and started shoveling right away. Finished at 5 a.m. Took me 2 hours to clean walk way and drive way. Excellent workout! I need these exercise.

And of course not only I am here to whine about the snow, I have a card to show. :)

The stamp set is from Newton’s Nook Designs. And a sketch is from Jen’s blog – Deconstructed Sketch. I admire Jen’s work.

Thank you so much for stopping by at my blog. I appreciate your time and your kind words.

You may saw on Facebook that I have been rejected once again for the DT. Well, it is time to say “no” to DT. Looks like this door is closed for me. :(

Wishing all a wonderful day. Stay warm,

Elena

You are Foxy

Привет!

А у нас опять отменили школу (у моего ребенка). Выпало много снега, а сверху приморосило дождичком. В общем всю эту прелесть я расчищала 2 часа. Отличная зарядка! Мне упражнения не помешают.

Конечно, я сегодня не только пожалуюсь на долгую и такую вредную Зимушку… У меня открытка.

Штампик от компании Newton’s Nook Designs. А дизайн открытки – Deconstructed Sketch.

Спасибо дорогие мои, что приходите ко мне на блог. Спасибо вам за ваши теплые слова.

Знаете, опять я получила отказ в набор дизайнерской команды. По-моему мне нужно просто сказать “нет” этим попыткам, дверь передо мной закрыта (ключика найти никак не могу).

Всем отличного дня. Берегите себя, одевайтесь потеплее, давайте вместе ждать весны,

Лена

Newton’s Nook Challenge

Hello!

Valentine’s Day inspired me for another card. I used Newton’s Nook stamp Sweetheart Tails from the new release.

I picked these papers, so I can participate in the NND challenge. It is a color challenge.

You may see a little heart on the card – I crochet it, and thought it would be a good fit for this card. :)

The sketch is from MOJO Monday blog.

Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving your kind words.

Hugs,

Elena

Love OWLways

Здравствуйте!

Приближающийся День Святого Валентина вдохновил меня на эту открытку.

Штампик от компании Newton’s Nook Designs. Увидев очередное задание на блоге этой компании – придумать открытку с заданными цветами – решила попробовать что-нибудь сделать. Подобрала бумагу, связала сердечко, добавила пуговку и – готово!

Для дизайна открытки использовала скетч MOJO Monday.

Спасибо большое дорогие мои, что дарите мне свое внимание. Очень приятно читать ваши комментарии.

Всем всех благ,

Лена

 

 

Pre-historic Christmas

Hello!

Have you ever thought about Christmas during Dinosaur time, a pre-historic type of Christmas? I asked myself this question and after I looked at Prehistoric Pals stamp set from Newton’s Nook Designs an answer jumped into my head right away.

Here is the picture how it could look back than. A dinosaur of course had a Santa hat. Instead of Christmas tree they used Palm tree which was decorated with the bow. Of course I don’t think they had Christmas lights in pre-historic time, but I gave it to this Dinosaur anyway. What a tree without lights?

This card was made following Newton’s Nook Designs Challenge sketch. Did you know that Jen (the owner of the company) has some freebies on her site. So, even if you don’t have stamps yet from this company you can still play, you still have time. There will be a prize also to the lucky participant. :) I thought why not to try? Why don’t you try too?

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Wishing all amazing day,

Elena

Pre-Historic Cristmas

Привет!

Задала себе вопрос на днях – интересно, а как отмечали Рождество во времена динозавров? Ответ возник сразу, когда на глаза попался штамп от компании Newton’s Nook Designs.

В общем в те времена все возможно выглядело именно так, как на моей открытке. У динозавра, конечно же, была шапочка Санты. Елочку заменяла пальма, которую украшали бантиком. Лампочек на пальме я думаю в то время не было, но этому динозавру, я все-таки вручила маленькую лампочку в руки. Ну какая елка-пальма без огоньков.

А если говорить серьезно, то отркытка придумалась по скетчу от блога Newton’s Nook Designs.

Спасибо, дорогие мои, что заглянули ко мне.

Удачи всем и всего только самого наилучшего,

Лена
