Newton's Nook Designs March Release - Basket of Wishes

well, it's the last day of the newton's nook march release!! i can't believe it's here already! 

this is an AMAZING set! perfect for tags, layouts, cards, anythign! and the best news is they'll be available for purchase march 21st here! :)

i think this set is SO versatile! 

first i combined the set with newton's antics!

the yarn was just CALLING to me! :)
i decided to watercolor with my distress inks! AND i even masked! that's unheard of for me people!! lol!! i have little newton hiding behind the basket of yarn, about to take off with one he stole!

ha ha!

and lastly, i decided to show that you can totally use this set without the basket too!! i stamped the champaign top over some thickers! 

and then, i used a technique that i saw fellow DT member, Danielle, use once: i heat embossed my thickers!!! um, this is amazing people! so FUN! so i turned my white thickers, that were the RIGHT size, but wrong color, into the RIGHT color (GOLD!!!) and the right size! genius!!

to top it all off, i speckled some small, large, flat, and faceted gold sequins and wood veneers to give a sort of confetti feel!

what do you think? are you in love with this set as much as i am?? and did i mention how much i love that color combination? swoon. mint - gold and black - WIN!
