Newton's Nook Designs July Release - Summer Scoops

let the release continue with Newton's Nook Designs! it's day 2, and it's JUST as exciting as day 1!



today, the whole DT is showcasing the new, super summery and adorable Summer Scoops stamp set! don't you just LOVE this set? i LOVE this set!! all of these summer time treats are adorable! i love the little heart accents, too!!
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!
this set was just TOO perfect not to scrapbook one of my favorite memories of this summer, so far!



we were in Michigan earlier this summer visiting our best friends and the kids played and had a TON of fun at a local park! afterwards, we went back to their house for some popsicles! YUM! 



to create this background, i heat embossed the cute popsicles (and that PERFECT sentiment!) in white embossing powder and then watercolored over top with Worn Lipstick and Dried Marigold Distress Inks! 

i LOVE how the watercolor is supposed to look like the melted popsicles! he he! 


i also added some embelishments and layers and then stitched on the title and other elements! because i almost CAN'T do a layout without stitching! ha!


my 2nd project is a card!



i used those AWESOME icecream cones and heat embossed them on watercolor paper! I used distress markers to colored them in, and them popped them on top of that cool WOOD tag i picked up from the dollar spot at Target! score!



the background is some yellow Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink and then I used some embossing paste in circles on top of that! oh, and that super AWESOME black and white mess? that's actually tissue paper! love the texture!
