Our goal today is to help brighten your day with uplifting and encouraging cards that will make you smile! We know that many of you are under stay home orders to help fight the spread of the Coronavirus and during this time of social distancing it's more important than ever to keep in touch with family and friends! We encourage you to spend some time creating and sending cards to those who matter to you! Check out all the stops in this hop to get inspired on ways you can send uplifting smiles!  

Leave comments at all the stops on the hop for a chance to win a store credit to the Newton's Nook Designs online store! (details at the bottom of this post).

I was supposed to be on vacation for Spring Break this week at the beach so I went with a tropical themed card complete with a sandy little beach!


I embossed my Kraft background with Texture Paste and then inked it up in some gorgeous shades of green Distress Oxide. I splattered it with a little white paint and then put it aside to work on the rest of the card. I stamped, colored and fussy cut out my image and glued it down to a die cut vellum circle. I added the sentiment with Versafine and clear embossing powder. To finish my little beach off I covered the bottom of my die cut circle with translucent embossing paste and then sprinkled and pressed some real sand in the paste and set that aside to dry!
