Newton's Nook Designs May Release - Years of Cheers

it's the most wonderful time of the month! today starts the May release week with Newton's Nook Designs! i just LOVE release weeks!

today, the whole DT is showcasing the new, super adorable and comforting 
Years of Cheers stamp set!! don't you just LOVE this set? this set is so elegant and perfect for celebrating the good times and milestones in your life! you can totally use this to scrapbook, create a project life type spread, gift tags and, of course, cards! all of the new sets will be available for purchase on May 15th, right here!

for my first card, i was totally channeling the gold theme (like most of my teamies! ha!)

i used some gorgeous gold-ish diagonal striped patterned paper and also spritzed that with some gold color shine! then i heat embossed the sentiment with gold on the doily!

i colored the champagne glasses with copics and added some messy stitching around the sentiment, and top of the card. 

i love the layers and splatters on this wedding or anniversary card!

my 2nd card was really FUN (and a little messy!) to make!

i used mustard seed to add some watercolor to my card base. and once it was dry, i flicked some water on to add the 'bubbles' of champagne! :)

i heat embossed the glasses in white and then created this adorable little banner for the sentiment! 

i heat embossed on some woodgrain paper, and added some soft pink pleating with tissue paper. i also decorated that paper clip by stitching some pink ribbon on top!
