Newton's Nook May Release - Around the House

i'm so excited for this month's release from newton's nook!! it's AMAZING!! i can't wait for you to see everything!


today's set is called Around the House, and i just think it's PERFECT for everyday, and even masculine, cards! it's perfect for tags, layouts, cards, anything! and the best news is, all of the sets will be available for purchase may 16th here! :)

i LOVE the images in this set!

there's a little tape dispenser and lightbulb...oh yeah, this is great!
my first card is really fun!




i colored the hammer, then popped it up for dimension over a watercolor background! 
for the background, i heat embossed the nails and hearts for some resist against the watercolor! 



and i think that sentiment is so FUN! perfect for a congratualtions card!!


my next card is pretty easy to recreate! and it's perfect to send someone a little extra love, if they need it!



i heat embossed the wood frame (LOVE THAT FRAME) and then paper pieced newton from the newton's antics set! i love that he's hanging on!

  22. I love the background for the hammer. You could also change it to (&^%*&^%&**(( if you were so inclined. You would get a good laugh if nothing else. (I have a warped sense of humor) Great cards.

  27. Fantastic cards Samantha!!! Newton hanging from the frame is very funny. It makes me chuckle because I imagine our cat in the same position which doesn't look too comfortable. :-) Samantha thanks for visiting and great comment. I'm very happy to hear it from you. Have a nice day.
