I used the new set released this month: Newton Loves Cake and paired it with a few oldies! the balloon is from Newton's Birthday Flutter (hilarious and AWESOME mini set!) and the party banner is from the very FIRST release Winged Wishes

I colored all of the images with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and then fussy cut them out! and of course...rainbow! the banner just screamed for it! ha ha!

I used Distress Inks in Peacock Feathers and Blueprint Sketch to create the background, and then splattered water on it, because..I CAN'T RESIST doing it!! ha ha ha!! 

so that's my card!

folded heart front!

today i have this card up on the Newton's Nook blog! :)

i started by die cutting two hearts with the Darling Hearts Die from some scrap mixed media/acrylic paint paper i had on my desk! :)
then i folded the hearts together and left a little line between them when i scooted them next to each other! 

the card front was stamped with the gorgeous florals from the Beautiful Blossoms stamp set, in alight grey! then i also splattered some of that ink around the image too.

inside, i placed a banner in a light grey with the sentiment from Newton's Support. I also added some florals, stamped in pink around the banner. :)

love how this card came out, it's so sweet! :)

be sure to check it out on the blog! :)

I feel like i don't use a lot of patterned paper anymore, so i forced myself to use some for my 1st card!

and i love it!!
i tore a piece of striped paper, attached it to the card front, added some watercolor in Distress Ink Spun Sugar and then used a stencil to add some polka dotted embossing paste! 

I also stitching the whole thing on, and then added the image over the oval of the Window Die Set! i colored the image with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers! so FUN!

i used Picked Raspberry, Worn Lipstick and Mustard Seed Distress Inks, squished them onto my round acrylic block, spritzed with water and pressed it onto my card front! LOOOOOOVE! sooooo pretty!
