Newton's Nook Designs April Release - Garden Whimsy

today is the last day of April RELEASE week for Newton's Nook Designs! awww, but don't be sad! that means that tomorrow all of the stamp sets you have seen this week will be available for purchase!! eek!!



today, the whole DT is showcasing the new, all green (ha!) all spring-y Garden Whimsy stamp set!! don't you just LOVE this set? it's sooooo cute! 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 April 17th, right here!


i really had a TON of fun with this set!
on my first card, i used some watercolor with distress inks to create my background!
(shocking, i know! ha!)


isn't it great though?! i LOOOOVE those two shades of green! i used shabby shutters and mowed lawn! i love that it really plays into the sentiment too!!


the sentiments on this set really ARE AWESOME! they are so sweet and lovely! some of my favorite ever!

on my 2nd card, i used Winston and copic colored him with that cute little watering can and flower! how could i resist such an image?!


i popped up the watering can and the flower and pop to add some dimension, and then used some white embossing paste and a stencil to create the sun rays! the sentiment was stamped onto some vellum that i colored yellow with distress inks and stapled! 


then i added some yellow enamel dots and splatters to add to the sunny-ness of all! :)
