Newton's Nook Designs September Release - Touchdown Tails

let the fun continue! it's day 2 of September release week with Newton's Nook Designs


today, the whole DT is showcasing the new, super awesome and totally personalize-able Touchdown Tails stamp set!  don't you just LOVE this set? it's so perfect right now with college and NFL football going on! i love that you can color the critters in any team colors that you like!
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 September 25th, right here!


for my first card, i just HAD to use that super cute referee bull dog!! ha ha ha!!


isn't he SO cute?!
i watercolored him with Distress Makers, and popped him up over that faux football field background!
first i took some patterned paper and then added the thin white embossing paste stripes with a stencil. then i used some green watercolor to color in between the lines to really help them stand out!


i also used some black 'measuring tape' type washi on the sides - seriously, i'm totally loving how this card came out! 

for my 2nd card, i created my own background with the cute little footballs! 


first i stamped the footballs with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and then i used the Distress Glaze on top of the footballs and added some loose green watercolor in between the footballs! love it!


Winston was watercolored with Distress Markers and popped him up on some vellum! I had to color the jersey in U of M colors - my husband went there, and my two little Menn are totally in love with U of M because Daddy is! ha!
