Newton's Nook Designs April Release - Versatile Vases

it's the middle of the month! that means - release time for newton's nook!! and it's an AMAZING release!! i can't wait for you to see everything!

today's set is called Versatile Vases, and it's brilliant!! this is an AMAZING set! perfect for tags, layouts, cards, anything! and the best news is, all of the sets will be available for purchase april 18th here! :)

this set is so cool!

for my first card, i decided to go masculine...can you do masculine with vases?! lol!! i think so, and i'm almost there, i think! ha ha! sigh.

i paper pieved the flowers and vase and popped them all up for dimension. 
then i added a few kraft sequins!

the sentiment was stamped onto some 'aged' vellum that aged with distress inks. :)
easy peasy!

my next card is totally different, and i LOVE it! :)

i heat embossed everything in gold! then i watercolored the images really messy, and loosly! if that makes sense! i was just added pops of color to the images!

after a touch of glossy accents to the mason jar (LOOOOOVE that mason jar!!) and a few pearls, this card was complete! i LOVE this look!!
