Newton’s Nook – Crafting is my Cardio

Hi everyone! I know there have to be at least a few of you who can relate to my card share today. I have discovered that my motivation to work out at home is less than stellar and with my gym closed, crafting is saving my sanity.

Given all of that, I totally reached for my Newton’s Crafty Cardio stamps because they were just too perfect!

The design of today’s card was inspired by a sketch I found while scrolling Pinterest the other night. I thought it was just perfect for this awesome image and the small supporting images that are just so perfect!

I started by stamping and coloring my Newton’s Crafty Cardio images and then cut them out with the coordinating dies. Next, I set to cutting the pieces from the sketch. I used green for the cardfront and then an awesome textured polka dot purple for the strips. The top and bottom are .75×5.5 inches and the center strip is 2.25×5.5 inches. I popped these up with foam tape and die cut a 3 inch diameter circle from striped paper and popped it up too. Next, I adhered my images with foam tape and using my MISTI stamped the sentiment.

For finishing touches I added Stickles to the sweatband because a crafter works out in bling. haha! Not really but it’s funny. 😉 Then I added glossy accents to various places on the images and lastly, added some gumdrops from Your Next Stamp.

A really fun card that perfectly expresses how I’m feeling these days. I hope you’re all staying safe and healthy, and relatively sane given the circumstances. Crafty hugs to you all!

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
