Papa Bear + coordinating Die - Papa Bear + coordinating Die

hi again!
we're smack in the middle of 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 Papa Bear + 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!

this set is SO PERFECT for Father's Day cards, and that's just what I made!

I colored in the images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers, and then used the coordinating dies to cut them out!
I LOVE these cute little wrestling bears!

I also used the Land Border Dies to help create the scene! the grass and sky were ink blended with Distress Inks and then splattered with water and color! 
and the sentiment was heat embossed onto a strip of black cardstock, that I trimmed to look like a banner!

the fun thing is...I put those guys on an action wobbler!!!! ha ha ha! love it!

for my second card, I combined the newly released Balloon Shaker Die, to add my sentiment! 

love the pop of rainbow!!! 
the images were again, colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers, and then die cut out!
I tied the balloon with a string to the little bear's hand! so cute!

the background has a little bit of Peacock Feathers Distress Ink blending, and the Cloudy Sky Stencil with some white embossing paste! LOVE LOVE LOVE how this came out!
