Newton's Nook Designs January Release - Love à la Carte

it's here! first release of the year for newton's nook! and it's full of love and fun and food!! :)



i think this set is so FUN and versatile! and those little foodie images are perfect for cards, scrapbooking for PL type albums!! and the good news is they'll be available for purchase january 17th here! :)

for my first card i went fun and bright! i water colored the background in two different shades of yellow then splattered some orange paint onto the base too!



the little hot pepper was watercolored and then popped up for dimension! (love that hot pepper image!!)


for my second card i had a little fun! 
i used the cat image from newton's antics and with some sneaky fussy cutting and paper piecing, i put him INSIDE the cupcake!! so fun, right?! (my four legged friend always tries to squeeze into places he can't fit!)


i popped up the main image and added some coloring to the patterned paper! oh, and that little speech bubble? still a favorite of mine!!!! that's from just say cheese! (and it's hard to tell, but i added some wink of stella to the heart and sprinkles!)

  7. Oh my gosh, what a treat to get on the site and see there's ANOTHER card to enjoy, Samantha! The birthday card is so freaking cute with the kitty in the cupcake, and that hottie cad is adorable! And I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your idea about using the stamp set for Project Life, too; I'm a PL-er, so I'll just have to steal that idea!
