The Newton Image along with the Chicks are from the NEW "Newton's Peeps" Stamp Set showcased yesterday!! I Stamped and Embossed ALL of the Images, colored them with Copic Markers and then Die Cut them out using the coordinating Dies!! For my Background I used the NEW "Bohke" Stencil Set along with Tumbled Glass and Cracked Pistachio Distress Inks!! Its subtle, but I LOVE the way it looks in real life!! I used the NND Land Borders Die Set for the Grass and Distress Inks in Shabby Shutters and Peeled Paint!! For the Sentiment I Stamped and Embossed it masking parts of it and I used WoW Glitter Embossing Powder for some Sparkle!! 


I LOVE this SWEET Image and I wanted to create a Scene!! Greyson has the SWEETEST Lil' Friend named Charlotte (they've been Friends since Birth) who's birthday is coming up and he wanted a Card for her!! 

So he helped me come up with the Design concept, and he just let me make it!! I Stamped and Embossed the Image, colored it with Copic Markers and used the coordinating Die to Die Cut it out!! I also used the NND Forest Scene Building Die Set for the Birch Trees and Inked them using some Gathered Twigs Distress Ink and the Blue Bird is also from the Set, using Copic Markers to Color it in!!  I used the NND Land Borders Die Set for the Grass and Distress Inks in Shabby Shutters and Peeled Paint!! A few Heart Embellishments from Honey Bee Stamps finishes it off!! I also had to add Then I backed the Panel using the NND Frameworks Die Set!!

SWOON!! Aren't these Images just the SWEETEST!!?? I LOVE them and had to use SEVERAL together to create a Birthday Card!! I wanted to frame them up using a Floral Border so I stamped 6 of the Floral Sprigs and created my own Scalloped Border!! I Stamped and Embossed all of the Images and used Copic Markers to Color them in!! I wanted them to all appear to be Furry, so I colored with different Texture Methods to achieve that look and I REALLY LOVE the way they turned out!! I used the coordinating Dies to Die Cut everything out and then I create my Background!! I used the Negative of the Land Borders Die Set (Grass Die) to create a Mask so I could Ink the Grass using Shabby Shutters and Peeled Paint Distress Inks!! Then I used Tumbled Glass Distress Ink for the Sky!! 
I added the Woodland Animals using Therm O Web iCraft 3D Foam Squares and then added my finishing touches!! Black Nuvo Drops for the Noses, Glitter Nuvo Drops for the Center of the Flowers and White Gel Pen Details for Highlighting and Freckles!! I Stamped and Embossed the Sentiment from the NEW "Loads of Blooms" Stamp Set that was revealed yesterday onto some MFT Grey Gingham Patterned Paper and my Card was finished!!

Hello!!
SQUEAL!!
         I'm here with Day 1 of the

.       Today we're showcasing the NEW  
 "Loads of Blooms" Stamp Set + coordinating "Loads of BloomsDie Set, the "Flower Trio" Die Set, the "Bold Blooms" Stencil and the "Bokeh" Stencil Set!!
                  Let's take a look at the AWESOME New Products!!


Filled With Beauty by Larissa Heskett     Newton's Nook Designs Products used Bold Blooms Stencil, Loads of Blooms Stamp Set, Frames & Flags Die Set, Therm O Web, Deco Foil Transfer Gel, Nuvo Glitter Pen, Nuvo Glitter Drops, Distress Inks
 What do you think!!?? SWOON Worthy RIGHT!!?? I AGREE!! I LOVE the New Bold Blooms Stencil and there are SO MANY ways you can use it!! For my first Card I decided to use Distress Inks (Dried Marigold, Ripe Persimmon, Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry, Milled Lavender, Dusty Concord, Tumbled Glass, Bundled Sage, Wild Honey, Tattered Rose and Abandoned Coral)
 I LOVE the NEW 1/2 inch Purple Tape by Therm O Web!! It's PERFECT for ALL of my Stenciling needs!! I used it to hold down my Distress Watercolor Paper and then placed the Stencil over the top and used a few small pieces of Purple Tape to hold it in place while I inked up the different Flowers!! Once the Inking was done I used my Nuvo Glitter Pen to color oved all of the Flowers with the Stencil!!
 SWOON!! Just Look at that BEAUTIFUL Shimmer on those Pastel Flowers!!
 Next I used the Deco FOil Transfer Gel and my Palette Knife to add the Transfer Gel over the top of the Stencil and Inked Flowers!! I LOVE the texture of the Transfer Gel, as it goes on so EASY!!
 Here's a close up of the Dimension it adds, and you can see ALL of the BEAUTIFUL Color popping through!! Set aside to Dry!! You'll know its completely dry when its Clear and no longer Milky looking!!
 I Stamped and Embossed the Sentiment from the NEW "Loads of Blooms" Stamp Set onto a NND Frames & Flags Die Cut and then adhered the Dry Stenciled and Deco Foil Transfer Gel Panel onto a Frames & Flags Scalloped Panel that I Die Cut from some Cardstock!! I added some Nuvo Glitter Drops to the Center of the Flowers just to add even more Sparkle and in real life its SUPER Pretty!!

Thinking of You By Larissa Heskett    Newton's Nook Designs Products used Bold Blooms Stencil, Loads of Blooms Stamp Set, Loads of Blooms Die Set, Frames and Flags Die Set, Distress Inks, Copic Markers
For my next Card I used the Bold Bloom Stencil again for my Background, but this time I used it over Kraft Cardstock and I used some White Pigment Ink to stencil it!! I added some Dark Espresso Distress Ink to the edges of the Frames & Flags Scalloped Panel to make them POP!! I Stamped and Embossed the SWEET Bicycle Image from the NEW "Loads of Blooms" Stamp Set and colored it in using Copic Markers!! I just ADORE the Images in this Set!! So Many occasions they could be used for!! I adhered the Image onto a Circle Die Cut that I inked using Distress Inks to create a Mini Scene!! Some Nuvo Glitter Drops were added to the Center of the Flowers and I stamped and Embossed the sentiment onto the Stenciled Panel!! 

Happy Blooming Birthday By Larissa Heskett    Newton's Nook Designs Products used, Flower Trio Die Set, Load of Blooms Stamp Set, Frames & Flags Die Set, Taylored Expressions Felt, Distress Inks, Black Soot Distress Paint, Pretty Pink Posh Iridescent Jewels
For my last Card today I used the AWESOME New Flower Trio Die Set and Die Cut the Daisy Die from some Taylored Expressions Marshmallow (White) Felt and then used the Leaf Die and Die Cut them from some Taylored Expressions Moss Green Felt!! I wanted FULL Flowers, so I Die Cut 3 Flowers for each Flower!! I like odd # so I also cut 3 Leaves!! I used Yellow Buttons and added some Burlap Twine for the Button Holes!! 
For the Background I Stamped the Happy Blooming Birthday Sentiment from the NEW "Loads of Blooms" Stamp Set and on a Diagonal in MFT Gray Grout Ink!! Then I added some Distress Black Soot Paint and added some Iridescent Jewels for some Sparkle!! I Die Cut a NND Frames & Flags Scalloped Panel and inked the edges with Dark Espresso Distress Ink!! 
I LOVE the way it turned out and I CAN'T WAIT to play with some of the other ideas in my head!!
