Newton's Nook Designs February Release - Winston's Birthday

yahoo!! how about some newton's nook release posts to brighten up your week! today starts day (of 3!) releases!  newton's nook


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 february 21st here! :)

i had SO much fun with this set! it's just adorable - winston is starring in his very own stamp set! 


my first card is him holding a sweet as can be cupcake! both the cupcake and his arms are popped up for dimension, so it looked like he was actually holding it! but uh-oh, it looks like he was late to the party! ha ha!


i just loved creating this scene with the party hat and decorations on the floor! the sentiment was added on a woodgrain banner with some sewing machine thread as a bow to hold all the wonky layers in place! so fun!!


my next card was REALLY fun to make!
we all know i'm a vellum fiend...i can't help it! well for this card i tried using embossing paste on vellum!! LOVE it!


first i tinted my embossing paste with some light blue mist and then i used my diaganol stencil to add it to the vellum! so fun!!


the vellum was sewn onto the cardstock! for winston's arm to hang from the balloon, i just did some fun cutting and used the fish to hide where his other arm showed! it really was fun to make this card!

  2. Love the paper-piecing and dimension on the first card, and your clever manipulation of Winston (just like a jointed teddy-bear!) on the second (along with the lovely tinted stenciling...). Very "happy" cards!

  12. Oh both of your cards are just too darling... LOVE them!

    It's really a small world, we should get together for shopping at Scrapin' Happily Ever After and a stamping party :-). I drive by that place 4 times a day taking the kids to school, but always thought it was part of the church. Anyways, email me at piecesbyemily@yahoo.com... let set a play date for the kids and us!
