Newton's Nook Designs March Release - Newton’s Birthday Balloons Stamp Set + coordinating Die

well hello there!
let's jump into day 3 of Newton's Nook Designs March release!

and oh my gosh you guys...this release is so completely amazing! I'm in LOVE with each new set, and I can't wait for you all to see it, too! it's so celebratory and FUN!
today we're showing off the Newton’s Birthday Balloons Stamp Set + coordinating Die
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 March 16th, right here!

here's my first card:

seriously this is the cutest stamp ever! I LOOOOOOOOVE the kitty shaped balloon!!! ha ha!
I colored the images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and then used the coordinating dies to cut them out! easy peasy!

for the background, I squished some Distress Inks in Picked Raspberry and Dried Marigold onto my craft mat. then, I spritzed that with water and lightly swiped the top right portion of the card into the water-ycolor mix! so fun!
once it was dry, I added the white embossing paste through the Cloudy Sky Stencil!

for my second card, I switched the colors around! 

this time I ink blended the background with Blueprint Sketch, Peacock Feathers and Cracked Pistachio Distress Inks.
then I flicked some water onto the background before adding my clouds and main image!

this little Newton is SO fun to play with and is PERFECT for sending happy birthday wishes!
