Hiya, today I have for you a stamped card of this cute little kitty from Newton’s Nook, which I coloured using my Tim Holtz Distress Markers.

I decided that I wanted a clean look to the card so I simply stamped just my little kitty cat and the sentiment and I did very little else to my card. So here is the video for my Newtons Nook Kitty Cat Birthday Card

I decided to make this card using an American sized card of 4.25″ x 5.5″ which I made from a piece of Simon says Stamp letter-size coloured card. I cut this in half lengthways,scoring and folding it at the top edge.  I then got a piece of water colour card and cut this to 4″ x 5.25″. On both this and my coloured cardbase I corner chomped the bottom two corners on the half inch setting. When stamping my image I decided to emboss it so that they could be no leakages of colour from one section of the image to the other. This is always a possibility when using your distress markers like water colour.


I then coloured my imaging and the little piece on my sentiment using a couple different distress markers. I want to go for quite a strong colour palette but since there was so little of it on the card I didn’t feel it would take away from the clean and simple look I was trying to achieve.

Once my coloured image had dried I added a small piece of grosgrain ribbon and a little not bow. I then stuck my watercolour piece to the front of my card using 3-D foam just to give a little dimension and interest.


I really like how it turned out, It was a clean and simple card but one still had a little pop and interest in it. I know I could’ve taken it even further towards the clean and simple look, but it turned out just how I had wanted it to. I hope you like it to? Do please leave me comments I love to hear what you have to sayand if you enjoyed the video do please give it thumbs up. But for now hugs and have a great craft day,

  1. So cute! I love the Newton’s Nook stamps, especially the cats & dogs. I’ve been thinking about buying distress markers, thanks for the tip of embossing the image first. I think I’ll try it:)

    • I saw a couple of people emboss first and realised why they did it and thought it was a really good idea 🙂 Glad you like the card, actually I got these stamps cos you did a the christmas card for my challenge using them and I really liked it 🙂
