Newton's Nook Designs March Release - Newton's Birthday Flutter

eek! today is the last day of the March release hop for Newton's Nook Designs! and i promise you..i PROMISE you, this set will make you laugh! ha!



today, the whole DT is showcasing the new, hysterical, and, alright i'll say it, a little dark,  Newton's Birthday Flutter stamp set! it's hysterical! everytime i read the 'so i ate him' phrase, i start laughing all over again! i really LOVE it! i have so many ideas for this set! you can totally use this to scrapbook, create a project life type spread, gift tags and, of course, cards! all of the new sets will be available for purchase on March 20th, right here!

for my first project, i made a card:



i wanted to focus on the bird, because i have other big plans for newton and those feathers!! he he he!
i even ALMOST made a one layer card...VOLUNTARILY!! i know. it was a close one! ha!



i masked off all of the balloons, and then watercolored everything with my distress markers. that little robin carrying the last balloon, is just so sweet, i think!! i REALLY love this card! i just added a strip of washi to the side of the card panel.

my last project for this release is a layout. and i really really LOVE how it turned out!



i think i stamped and cut out the balloons...oh 150 times!! insane, i know! but i really really like how this looks!! the rainbow motif just goes so well with the picture of my little mann turning 2 a few years ago! (hence the number 2 in the title!). when he was sleeping i had filled his room with balloons, and when he woke up on his 2nd birthday, it was instant happy!



i also stamped some of the phrases from the stamp set around my layout! it was perfect for this birthday page! 
the blue above the balloons was a little bit of distress ink blending!

  14. The balloon clusters are darling. Good idea to pop them off each other and the background. Really gives a lot of depth to the card.
