Newton's Nook Designs April Release - Wedding Frills Stamp Set + coordinating Die and Floral Lace Stencil

hello and welcome to day 2 of Newton's Nook Designs April 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 spring, and new beginnings and FUN!
today we have a new stamp set/dies and a new stencil: Wedding Frills Stamp Set + coordinating Die and Floral Lace Stencil
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 April 20th, right here!

first, I created a card with just the stencil!

ok, I also used a stamp from the Birthday Essentials stamp set! you got me!
but that background - all the stencil!! and isn't it gorgeous?!

first I used white embossing paste over the stencil, removed the stencil and let it dry. once it was dry, I placed the stencil back on, and rubbed in some color with gelatos and Distress Crayons!! LOOOOOOOOOVE how bright the colors on!! and it was SO FUN!

the aforementioned sentiment was heat embossed in black onto vellum and then fussy cut out! love it!!

for my 2nd card I went monochromatic!!

it's totally something different for me! first of all, I didn't use white cardstock!! shcoking!! second, I don't usually do monochromatic! but I do LOVE how this card came out!

I heat embossed the flowers (gorgeous!) in white and then used Picked Raspberries and Worn Lipstick Distress Inks to ink blend over them until the middle.
then I splattered some color over the area too!

the sentiment was heat embossed in white on vellum, and then fussy cut out. and I finished the card with some sparkling clear sequins! 
definitely SUPER girly, but I can get away with it because it's for a wedding, right?! ha!
