**this is my 2nd post of the day! to see my card for the newest Lawn Fawnatics Challenge, scroll down, or click here!**

hi hi hi!
so excited to be starting this week by kicking off day 1 of Newton's Nook Designs July release and 5 year celebration!
I say this every time...but guys, this release is FREAKING AMAZING!




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! these sets are so FUN and perfect for those summer birthdays coming up!
today we're sharing the SUPER CUTE, INCREDIBLE AND FUN Narly Mermaids, Purr-maid Newton, and Mantatee-rific + coordinating dies and new Stencils! 
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 July 20th, right here!

my first card uses that sweet, curious, adorable little narwhal from Narly Mermaids!!!


I colored in the images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers, and then used the coordinating dies to die cut them out! that little narwhal really has my heart! I think he's the cutest!
I die cut some waves with the Sea Borders dies and then added color to the vellum with Distress Inks (Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers and Mermaid Lagoon).


I heat embossed the sentiment onto a banner cut with the Flags and Frames die set and then splattered some white acrylic ink around the waves!

my second card uses the new Purr-maid Newton stamp set and it's SOOOO CUTE!


OMG, I love these little sea critters so much!
I popped them up over a sea of Distress Ink! lol!
I used Wilted Violet, Blueprint Sketch and Peacock Feathers (my favorite color combinations!)


I think coloring mermaid tails is one of my favorite things ever, and so I had a TON OF FUN with newton as mermaids! ha!

my last card of the day uses the new Manatee-rific stamp set. 



guys, mermaids are my JAM!!! i LOVE them! they're SO cute and so sweet! 



I tinted some white embossing paste with Peacock Feathers and another bit with Blueprint Sketch Distress Inks, and then smoothed that onto my card front with the Waves Stencil!
Once it was dry, I ink blended around the same areas, and then splattered some white acrylic ink around! adorable!!
