Shark week at Newton's Nook Designs | Shark Bites Stamp set

First a Card!! I saw this Picture on Pinterest and I thought it would be FUN to create a similar Design!!
Whale at sunset. Whales are part of the story in Stuart Brannon's Final Shot by award-winning author Stephen Bly.
I LOVED the Colors and the Feeling and thought it was PERFECT for a Shark Week Card!!?? I started by Die Cutting a Memory Box Cornerstone Seal Die in the Center of a Distress Water Color Card Panel!!  I thought it would make the Perfect Sun, but also with the Pinked Edge I thought it also looked like Shark Teeth too!!?? =) I then Stamped and Embossed my Shark Image in the Center of the Sun Die Cut!! I also Stamped and Embossed another Shark Image onto Distress Water Color Paper and then I used my Distress Water Color Markers to Water Color it!! I Fussy Cut it out and Layered it together using a FUN Spring!!  =) I LOVE how in REAL Life it really looks as though the Shark is Jumping out of the Ocean!! I then Die Cut some Waves and I Stamped one of them using the Stamp Border from the Stamp Set and then I layered it with two Die Cut Waves from the Paper Smooches Waves Die!! I LOVE the Layers and how they are uninform just like real Waves!! I used my Distress Inks to Water Color and Ink my ENTIRE Card Base!! I was SO AFFRAID to add the Dark Colors!! I've used both Black Soot and Hickory Smoke to add to the Depth of the Colors!! I then used my Powder Tool over the Inked Card Base so that I could Stamp and Emboss the Sentiment!! I hope you LIKE it as much as I do!!??  =)
Next I have a Shaker Card!! =) I wanted to make a FUN Shark Shaker Card using several of the Shark Images from the Set!!  =) I used the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle Dies to create a FUN Frame and then I went to town creating a FUN Scene!! I Stamped and Embossed all of the Images onto Distress Water Color Paper and then used my Distress Inks to Water Color them!! I then added LOTS of Coarse Glitter and Sequins for the Shaker Elements and my Card was done!!
For my Last Card I thought it would be SUPER FUN to create a Card using a Few Older NND Stamp Sets to show how you can combine them with other Sets you might already have to create some FUN Cards!! After looking through them, I decided to use Newton's Summer Vacation Stamp Set along with the Seagulls from the Flirty Flamingos Stamp Set and the Sign from the Winter Tails Stamp Set!! I LOVE the way it turned out!!  =) I thought the Free Hugs Sentiment went well, because you could make this an ANY OCCASION Card!! I thought it would make a FUN Birthday Card with the "Snappy Birthday" Sentiment on the inside or you could use it as a "Hang in There" Card or even a "I'm Thinking of You" Card!!
 I hope you ENJOYED my Cards for today and that you'll stop by to see the AMAZING Card that Crafty Math Chick has to share too!!
