Newton's Nook Designs’ 5 Year Celebration - Day 3

hello there!
still with us? it's Day 3 of Newton's Nook Designs July release and 5 year celebration! yahoo!

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! these sets are so FUN and perfect for those summer birthdays coming up!
today we're sharing theses INCREDIBLE big stamps: Shark Frenzy and Flamingo Flock
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 July 20th, right here!

my first card uses the new Shark Frenzy set!

I colored in the images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and then cut out along the edges!
I was inspired to make this card after watching this video by Jennifer McGuire!
It opens on both sides, and on the right side of the card is some white embossing paste that i used with the Bubbly Stencil

I love how it opens on both sides!
It's totally a new concept for me! ha!

my second card features the cute flamingos from Flamingo Flock!

I stamped then with Worn Lipstick Distress Ink and then colored in the images, ligthly.
I also stamped the two flamingo images from Flirty Flamingos and then popped them up with foam tape over a circle of vellum!

all of that was put over the background images! then I used the scalloped shape from the Flags and Frames die to add a fancy edge!
oh! I also heat embossed the sentiment onto the vellum circle and then added some sequins!
