Newton's Nook Designs August Release Day 2 - Once Upon a Princess + coordinating Dies

day 2 of  Newton's Nook Designs August release is here!!

this month's release is amazing, whimsical and SO CUTE!
today the whole team is showing off the Once Upon a Princess + coordinating Dies! you can totally create a project life type spread, gift tags and, of course, cards! all of the new sets will be available for purchase on August 18th, right here!

yay!!! look at this adorable princess!!!! ha ha!!! love it!

well, i tried my hand at a simple little scene. it didn't come out the BEST, but i still think it's cute! i used the Sky Borders Dies as masks to create the clouds with some Distress Ink in Peacock Feathers! 

the grass was done in Twisted Citron and Lucky Clover Distress Oxide Inks, and the path was made with Fossilized Amber and Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Inks. I colored the images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and then die cut them out! 

my 2nd card is another shaped one!

a castle shape! i found the castle shaped card in the Silhouette store and then used my Cameo to cut it out! I used Pumice Stone Distress Ink to add color to the white cardstock! 

the images were all colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and then die cut out! this card makes me so happy!! i can't wait to give it to someone!
