distress paints and newton's nook!

hey there!

today i'm over on the newton's nook blog! and i have this super fun card to share!

ooooo, ahhhhh!

ha ha!
i think i may have mentioned during release week that i LOOOOOVE the new love grows stamp set! LOVE IT!!

for this card, i heat embossed in white, all over a card sized sheet of vellum. 
then i in the WORLD am i going to add color? 

there are a bunch of options to color on vellum, but this time, i decided to layer the vellum over some distress paint splatters! so i splattered three distress inks onto a cardsized white panel (squeezed lemonade, picked raspberries and dried marigold) into the approximate areas my little flowers were on the vellum sheet!

then i attached the vellum! then came my next problem - HOW DO I ADD A SENTIMENT?! lol!!

alas, i decided to go with NO sentiment - something i NEVER do! but this dang set i just SO versitle that it could literally be used for almost any occassion! so i added a bow and some pinks and boom! beautiful card, ready to be used for anything! :)

what was your favorite stamp set from the newton's nook release?
it's so hard to choose!


  1. So pretty! Looks like a hand painted silk. Very nice touch with the pins and ribbon. :)
