Newton's Nook Designs July Release - Newton's Naptime + Die

happy tuesday!
today is the start of July release week with Newton's Nook Designs! i just LOVE release weeks!




today, the whole DT is showcasing the new, super happy and adorable Newton's Naptime mini stamp set! don't you just LOVE this set? that sweet little kitty is SO cute on top of those blankets! and guys..this year...Newton's Nook has started to release DIES!!!!! eek!!! i'm SO excited! eeeeeee!
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 July 17th, right here!
for my first card, you know i had to color the blankets in rainbow!!! it was begging for rainbows! ha!


all of the images were colored with copics! and i love that sweet little black and white kitty! 
the background of the card was created with texture paste and a stencil and then i just added a strip of black and white graphic washi to one side!



i just LOVE how i didn't have to fussy cut it out - one pass with the die, and it was done!! yay for dies!!!!

and speaking of fussy cutting...you can still do that with dies!
my 2nd card was created by paper piecing and then i still die cut it all out on white cardstock!!



shhhh, that little kitten is too cute to wake up! and he's dreaming! adorable!



i die cut the two sized hearts about 7 times each out of teal foil paper! i also used them with some sequins to create the shaker part of the speech bubble! :)
there's also a slight watercolor background in a warm yellow on the card base! 

i left this card blank inside so it can be used for lots of occassions! :)

  11. the cards are so cute.
    Love the paste in the background of the first. Kind of looks like rays coming from Newton.
    the shaker card is so pretty.
    The coloring on both is great - one is bright and the other is more muted.
