Newton's Nook Designs January Release - Newton Dreams of Paris

good morning! it's day 2 for the Newton's Nook's January Release!


today, the whole DT is showcasing the new, super FUN, playful and sweet, Newton Dreams of Paris Stamp set!! i just love Newton in his Parisian outfits and those hot air balloons - SO FUN!! they are perfect for scrapbooking your winter memories, doing a project life type spread, gift tags and, of course, cards (especially Vanetine's Day cards!)!! all of the new sets will be available for purchase on January 16th, right here!

ok, here's first card :



i watercolored the background (by spraying some mist onto recycled packaging, and then smooshing the packaging onto the card base). LOOOOVE that sky blue color! then i heat embossed the sentiment in white and framed out the scene with a frame from my stash!


I colored the clouds from Winged Wishes and added them to the frame and right above the trio of hot air balloons! i LOOOOVE those little guys!! and i love how colorful and happy this card turned out! :)

for my next project, i made a layout!


i LOVE that little newton with the beret!! and all those little mustaches made me think of an artist!


i colored him with copics, and added one of the sentiments to my layers of papers under the picture! the mustache was stamped directly onto the wood veneer polaroid frame, too!


i added watercolor splotches to the background (since my little Mann is watercoloring!), and then stitched on the sentiment with my sewing machine! :)
a few touches of dark teal, finished the page! :)
