Newton's Nook Designs August Release - Simply Sentimental

alright, here we are! 
day 2 of newton's nook's release in august!
and the set we're featuring today is going to be the PERFECT staple in your stamp collection!
both of the new sets will be available for purchase on August 20th, here

i am SO excited to have a newton's nook stamp set with a hundred (or so!) different sentiments i can create myself! tihs set can be used on any card, tag, layout, anything!

here's my first card...fun!

i tried to keep it a little simple, with a style that could be easily reproduced and easily sent in the mail (not much dimension!

i misted the background and then adhered it to my card with some bold polka dotted washi!
then i stamped the sentiment and sprinkled the word 'wishes' all over, i LOVE how that looks!
i think this card would be ok even for a dude! and you could change the washi/mists and BAM feminine! 

now, my next card is my favorite! 
i LOVE the neon-y quality!

i used some white woodgrain paper for my base and then die cut out the people, and popped them up for dimension! i just think this is the PERFECT friendship card!

i stamped the sentiment and heat embossed in YELLOW onto some vellum! LOVE that saying! so sweet!
ok, now onto the prize details!
