today I'm extra excited to start the's day 3 of Newton's Nook Designs April release!

and oh my gosh you guys...this release is so completely amazing! I'm in LOVE with each new set, and I can't wait for you all to see it, too! it's so spring, and new beginnings and FUN!
today we my favorite set of the release...Umbrella Pals Stamp Set + coordinating Die
you can totally create a project life type spread, gift tags and, of course, cards! all of the new sets will be available for purchase on April 20th, right here!

I am soooo in love with this set!!!
my first card used the panda umbrella because my oldest little Mann LOOOOOOOVES pandas!

eeeeek!! he's so cute!! 
ok, so I colored in the image with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and then die cut them out! 
the background used the Cloudy Sky Stencil and some white embossing paste! LOVE the texture that adds!!

then I used Distress Inks in Mustard Seed and Squeezed Lemonade to add some blending to the bottom corner of the card! like sunshine!

I also splattered color and white acrylic ink over the area! 

my second card is my first time ever making this long-shaped card!!

I don't know what the shape size is 'called' but it fits into a standard letter/bill envelope!
I used Distress Inks in Blueprint Sketch, Black Soot and Peacock Feathers to create the rainy sky! oh, and then I trimmed a long piece of white cardstock with the Sky Borders Die to create the cloudy border!

and all of my animal umbrellas are rainbow colored!! eeeeee!! i love them all and want them!!
I could seriously look at this card all day! I LOVE how it came out, and it makes me happy!!

what are some other umbrella shapes we need for this line?! here are my ideas (are you listening Jennifer?!?!) llama

ha ha! I seriously want them all! ha!
