Newton's Nook Designs June Release - Newton’s Support

we're already at day 3 of Newton's Nook Designs June Release

today, the whole DT is showcasing the gorgeous, summer-y and floral Newton’s Support stamp set! this set is so near and dear to me! i'm so excited for this new mini-set! my best friend beat cancer 6 years ago, and our near, and dear teamie Larissa is (finally!) cancer free and going through her final 6 months of treatments! yay!!

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 June 17th, right here!

here's my 1st card:

i did some distress ink blending in nice, warm colors in yellows and pinks and then stamped the phrases in black on the blending background! 
then i used the Garden Window Die cut to create the rectangle window, and popped the blended/stamped background behind it!

i colored the cat to resemble a Siamese cat with copics! :) love him!

and for my 2nd card, i used the Darling Hearts Die as a mask:

i used some Cracked Pistachio and Tumbled Glass Distress Ink to create the soft background and then removed the heart mask! then i splattered some water and also some wet Tumbled Glass from a paint brush to add some more fun!

i heat embossed the sentiment on some black cardstock! then i stamped and fussy cut out the ribbon!

  1. This stamp set is so precious! BTW, I saw your card with the custom tomato sentiment. That is the best!!You are so witty!

  2. My siamese cat, Saphira, told me she loves both your cards, but has a little preference for the first one.... I wonder why ?

  3. Awwww!!!! Your cards are absolutely adorable!!! So cute!

  4. These are so cute! Love that one showcases the infamous Newton while the other uses a fun technique with the "smaller" stamp elements. Nicely done!

  5. the cards are great.
    Love the way you made the background on the first.
    The shading around the heart is so pretty on
    the second.
