so fawned of you!

hello!
today I have this sweet little card up on the Newton's Nook Designs blog!


So Fawned of You Card by Samantha Mann, Newton's Nook Designs, Distress Oxide Inks, Deer, Handmade Card, #distressinks #inkblending #card #newtonsnook

I totally love the purples and greens together for the background! I think they really make the deer pop!
I colored the images from Deer Friend with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and then used the coordinating dies to cut them out! so easy and fun!

I used foam tape to pop up the deers agains the grassy hills! I used Distress Oxide Inks in Twisted Citron and Lucky Clover to ink blend the grass and hills, which were die cut with the Land Borders Die Set!

for the sky, I used Seedless Preserves and Milled Lavender Distress Oxide Inks and ink blended them together. I splattered some water, white acrylic paint and ink color onto everything for some texture! and I finished off the card with some clear sequins!

Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #465 - Plaid

hello!
thank you so much for stopping by!

the Newton's Nook team was invited to be Guest Sweeties with the new Cupcake Inspirations Challenge! and this time, it's all about the pretty plaid pattern!!




so fun!
I combined a few different Newton's Nook Designs stamp sets to create my rainbow-y plaid card!



love it!
my oldest little Mann is all about the pandas!! so I know he's going to approve of this card!
I used the images from Playful Pandas and then used the coordinating dies to die cut them out!
all of the images were colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers, and then fussy cut out!



the sentiments are from the perfectly playful birthday phrases on the Birthday Essentials stamp set!
I created the background using the Plaid Stencil set and a rainbow of Distress Ink colors! first I used the stencils and switched out the colors in a rainbow pattern. then once it was all stenciled, I used the same colors, with a lighter hand, and ink blended on top!

I finished the card by die cutting some vellum with the Sky Borders die set!

hope to see you playing along with the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge!
enjoy!
