Newton's Nook Designs May Release - Newton Loves Boxes + coordinating Die and Newton’s Donut + coordinating Die

we made it!
today is the final reveal day for Newton's Nook Designs May 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're starting the week off with the new Newton Loves Boxes + coordinating Die and Newton’s Donut +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 May 18th, right here!

I super LOVE newton, and these sets couldn't be any cuter!
my first card uses the Newton Loves Boxes set! (ha!!! hilarious!)

I colored in the images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers, and then used the coordinating dies to cut them out! ha - LOVE that tilted little newton butt box, ha!

I did some Distress Ink blending in the background in Wilted Violet, Blueprint Sketch and Peacock Feathers to complete the 'rainbow' of this card! then I stamped the building images from Newton Dreams of New York to create the illusion of a city behind them! the effect is lighter than I originally anticipated, since I used the same ink colors, but I still like the subtle effect! 

my second card uses the new Newton's Donut set...WHICH I LOVE! lol!! 

I used more Distress Ink Blending (this time in Twisted Citron and Cracked Pistachio) for the background, and then popped up that adorable image with foam tape!

as few squins finished off the card! and I heat embossed that FUN sentiment!
