Newton's Nook June Release - Garden Starter + Garden Window Die Set

it's going to be a fun week! 
Let's start with day 1 of Newton's Nook Designs June Release

today, the whole DT is showcasing the gorgeous, summer-y and floral Garden Starter + Garden Window Die Set!! oh, i just LOVE those little bouquets of flowers and that AWESOME die!! it's so versatile!! 

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!

my 1st card is bold, bright and totally me!

i used copics to color those beautiful flowers! and just added a little shading in each of the petals! it was simple coloring, but it did take a little time!

i fussy cut the flowers and then made a big bouquet with them all! the banner and word were die cut from the new die! i layered the word 4 times and then added a little glitter on top of it! so fun!

for my 2nd card, i did lots and lots of masking!

those daisies are so fun!!! 

so, yes, lots of masking, and lots of stamping! but i LOVE how this looks!!

I used the oval shape from the die to create a focal area for the sentiment! i used Worn Lipstick and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Inks which i blended together and then spritzed with water! a few enamel dots finished it off! love!
