Inky Paws #39 Reminder


Hello crafty friends! Just a reminder that you still have one week left to play along in the Newton's Nook Inky Paws Challenge. The challenge is simple this time. Just use a heart. For my card I created a clean and simple card so that I could make a few extra for the Cards from the Heart card drive. Head on over to the Inky Paws challenge blog for full details and to hear about how you can win.

Little Tangles 76 Anything Goes

Valentine Card with Neat and Tangled Nuts about You by Jess Gerstner

Hello crafty friends! Like many others I fell in love with Nuts about You stamp set from Neat and Tangled. Since I missed out on the Simon Says Stamp exclusive version of the squirrels I decided to jump on this set. For today's card I played around with the Neat and Tangled Geometric stencil and colored in the squirrels in the nut with my Gansai Tambi watercolors. This month's challenge over on the Little Tangles blog is Anything Goes which is a great reason to just play with whatever stamps you have or make whatever card you need.

Dinosaur Valentine with Jess Crafts Digitals


Dinosaur Valentine featuring Jess Crafts Digitals Delightful Dinos Steggy

Hello crafty friends! Today I have a new digital stamp for you. This one is called Delightful Dinos Steggy. I have a video tutorial and an announcement about a new feature of my digital stamps.


As mentioned in the video I am now offering my digital stamps precolored as well as the traditional outline. I know many of you prefer to color the stamps yourself but if you want something quick and easy you can print off the precolored version as well.

Valentine Set with New Digital Stamp


Today I have a card and video sharing my new Jess Crafts Digitals stamp set Elated Elephant.

I have a short video tutorial where I talk about the stamp set but also about the Cards from the Heart card drive which I will donating this set to.

Coffee and Snowflake Card with Newton's Nook Designs

Christmas Coffee Card by Jess Gerstner featuring Newton's Nook Designs Newton Loves Coffee and Beautiful Blizzard

Hello crafty friends! Today I have a card for Newton's Nook Designs and the Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. Today's card started with a clear plan and then went really off track for a bit but turned out in a way I love. In the video I talk a little about that struggle we all go through as cardmakers sometimes when things just aren't turning out the way we'd like. Check out the video for some more details.


I also wanted to let you know this is my last official post as part of the Newton's Nook Design Team. I have enjoyed my time with Newton's Nook tremendously and I'm lucky to be able to continue working with them in a new capacity next year. I will be involved with the new Inky Paws challenge blog. I'm so excited for the new challenge blog because it will provide more inspiration and more frequent challenges which means more chances to win.
