Newton's Nook Designs April Release - Little Lilies Stamp Set + coordinating Die and April Showers Stamp Set

wow - it's the last day Newton's Nook Designs April release! that flew by!


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 have the Little Lilies Stamp Set + coordinating Die and April Showers Stamp Set
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!

my first card is watercolor-y and bright!


I used Distress Inks (Wilted Violet, Picked Raspberry, Worn Lipstick and Mustard Seed) to create the watercolory, raindrop look by smooshing the ink pads directly onto the raindrop stencil I have.
then I spritzed it with water and pressed it on to my cardstock! so fun! and so easy!


then I heat embossed the beautiful sentiment in black and fussy cut out some butterflies from vellum! I placed them around the sentiment and added glitter to their wings!

my second card is sooooooo sweet!


I love that little lily image!
I colored in the image with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and then die cut them out! 
I used a circle die in my stash to create the shaped card and then, with Seedless Presevers and Wilted Violeet Distress Oxide Inks, I did some ink blending around one of the areas! then flicked some color on!


I LOVE the purple/green color combo and the soft kraft background really adds to the 'sweet' feeling to me! I also added some extra blooms with the small images!!
