Hello Everyone! If you are visiting from Newton’s Nook- Welcome!! I am wicked excited to be the guest designer for Jennifer at Newton’s Nook this month. I get to share with you all the new stamps this week along with the very talented design team! How cool is that!?! If you missed yesterdays release you can see it here
Today the whole team is featuring “Vegetable Medley”. If you are new to Newton’s Nook- be sure to read all about the company and more importantly who Newton is 🙂 .
Ok, onto the new goodies! Newton’s Vegetable Medley is a fun set that I created this card with
For this card I started with a stitched square that I cut out of Distress Watercolor Cardstock. I then heat embossed a bunch of the music notes in white embossing powder. I use Distress Spray Stain in Mermaid Lagoon and pooled some on my craft sheet and then painted it on the stitched square. The white embossing powder repels the ink for this cool background. I stamped the vegetables in Archival ink and watercolored them with Distress Inks (colors linked below). I also stamped the headphones. I then fussy cut out the vegetables and headphones and clustered everything together as you see here. I wrapped some jute around and ties in a bow. I created my sentiment strip, adding a little bit of watercolor over the word “beet”. I added a touch of white enamel accents to the heart just for a little dimension.
This set is so playful and has such fun sentiments for friendship cards 🙂 I will be back tomorrow with another new creation as well!
