You are going to love all the fun inspiration they're sharing using Newton’s Nook Designs Stamps


i can't believe Newton's Nook is already celebrating 2 years in this industry!! it's so exciting!!!!!
i created this AWESOME message in a bottle shaker card to celebrate!!! 

i just LOVE the sentiments in the Message In a Bottle stamp set! they're SO encouraging and inspirational!
perfect for this occasion!!


i stamped and colored that bottle, and even did a little masking with the cork! oh - and when i die cut the shaker part, i even partial die cut the cork on top of the bottle - be impressed people! i'm NO partial die cutter! it usually scares me! ha!


then i took some scrap white cardstock and rolled it up as the message!! 
the background paper is some AWESOME map paper! i lightened up the edges by painting on a THIN layer of gesso - just cause!

and the sentiment was stamped onto some crumbled up vellum! fun!!
