Newton's Nook Designs August Release Day 1!! =)

Pin It

I'm here to share the New Newton's Nook Designs Release with you!! =)

Today we are taking a look at the New Hanging Around Stamp Set!!

OMG!! You are going to LOVE this SWEET New Set!! I have SO MANY Ideas for using this set and I can't wait to share what I have made for today!! I thought it would be FUN to show how this set could be used for a Baby Card!! I have several friends/family expecting New Little Babies soon so I wanted to create a Little Girl Baby Card and I LOVE the way it turned out!! I started by Die Cutting a Lil Inker Designs Stitched Rectangle Die Cut onto some Dove Grey Card Stock from WPlus9!! I wanted to layer the Rope Stamp with a Heart Border Die Cut from IO Stamps and I ended up combining two different colors of cardstock to make the HEARTS really pop!! Then I colored them with a Clear Glitter Wink of Stella Glitter Marker for some FUN Sparkle!! I also stamped the Sweet little Bow Images and fussy cut them out to add them to the ends of the rope!! I stamped the Sweet Little Monkey Image onto some Oatmeal Cardstock from WPlus 9 and then used my Colored Pencils to color it in!! I used Gamsol to blend it all together and then added some Clear Glitter Wink of Stela Glitter Marker to the main body portion of the Monkey!! I added some Dark Pink Glitter Gelly Roll Pen to the Heart Nose and I really LOVE the way it looks in real life!! I fussy cut the Image and then added it to the Stamped Scene Die Cut!! I wanted to make it look like she was REALLY Hanging on to the Heart Border Vine Die Cut so I cut the Monkeys Hand just enough to get the Vine underneath it!! I then stamped and embossed my sentiment from Simply Sentimental one of the other New Stamp Sets from the August NND Release!! You'll get a closer look at it tomorrow!! 

I stamped the Sweet Little Monkey Image again on the Inside of the card and then added just alittle bit of color for her cheeks and used the same Dark Pink Gelly Roll Pen to color in her nose!! I added s strip of the same patterned paper from Crate Paper I used for the front of my card and stamped the rest of the Sentiment also from the other New NND Stamp Set for this Month!! I REALLY LOVE how it turned out!! =) I hope you've ENJOYED my card for today and I hope you'll visit the Rest of the NND Design Team for even MORE Inspiration and for a chance to WIN one of these New Hanging Around Stamp Sets!!
