Newton's Nook Designs July Release - Message in a Bottle + Die

it's the last day of Newton's Nook Designs July release! but never fear...there's still more fun to be had this week!! he he!




today, the whole DT is showcasing the new, awesomely nautical Message in a Bottle stamp set and die! YES! that's right, another stamp and die combo!! SO cool!!

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!

ok guys, i just HAAAAAAD to create this little ship in the bottle as a shaker card!! i HAD to!!


i colored in that ship with copics, and then used lots of different shapes and things to create the 'water' part of the shaker card!



i used some embossing paste a fun chevron stencil to add just a little bit of interest to the card front. the sentiment was stamp by coloring the sentiment with distress marker! hello - that was FUN! 
i seriously already have like 5 other cards made with this set - I LOVE IT! 

but i'm only sharing one other today! ha!



this time, i wanted to use that octopus, because guys, that 'kraken' sentiment KRAKs me up! ha ha! i LOVE it!!
i just sent it to my twin brother for his birthday, actually!

i stamped the octopus a few times along the background (on watercolor paper), then used some watercolored distress inks to add the loose color! 



the anchors were die cut, and then i added glossy accents to them!
i love me some anchors! :)
