Newton's Nook Designs June Release Day 3

Wednesday, June 14, 2017


Hello, lovelies!
Welcome back to the Newton's Nook Designs June Release!
All the new goodies will be available for purchase this Friday the 16th over at the Newton's Nook Designs Shop!
Today is day 3  and we are showcasing 2 fun sets, "Cuppa Cactus" and "Cultivated Cacti" set! I have aways LOVED cacti (but my black thumb killed several of them and now I stop myself from picking them up when I see them at the store...LOL), so I was so very happy to see these cute cactus stamps!



Ohhh my goodness!
This is called Cuppa Cactus ;-)
Isn't this the most adorable and unique set you've ever seen!?



And here's Cultivated Cacti set ;-)
I LOVE how you can mix and match different cacti and plant pots!
So many possibilities! 

Alright, I have made 4 cards (can you tell I really enjoyed these sets!?), here we go!


Newton's Nook Designs Cuppa Cactus Set - Naki Rager


EEEEEEEEK!!!
I am just so in LOVE with these little prickly guys in cups! I mean, how stinkin' cute and fun!!! I thought it might be fun to have "prickly" things like the triangle background and stars all over the card ;-)


Newton's Nook Designs Cuppa Cactus Set - Naki Rager


My little prickly was stamped with antique linen distressed ink on watercolor paper, watercolored, then fussy cut. Why did I fussy cut?  For some reason, I forgot that I had the coordinating die set...{LOL} I borrowed that pair of glasses from the Newton's Book Club set, only the glasses were inked up to stamp, then I traced the outline with a black gel pen and fussy cut. Doesn't she look sharp with her glasses!? ;-) The sentiment was heat embossed with black on watercolor paper after sponging with distressed oxide ink and splattered some water.

I am pretty excited about this second card with the Cuppa Cactus set!
As soon as I saw this set, I wanted to make these yellow caution tapes! Isn't it fun!? We put yellow tape on our front porch every Halloween, so I guess I have a thing for yellow tapes...{LOL} I placed a piece of painter's tape and used the flat paint brush and yellow ink to draw the tapes. After it was all dried, I heat embossed the sentiment with black.

"I'm a little prickly before my coffee!" is exactly how I am! Maybe more than just "a little"...{LOL} The cactus in a cup image was stamped with antique linen distressed ink on watercolor paper, watercolored, and fussy cut. I actually messed up the orange flower so I stamped and colored again then paper pieced it, and I liked that little bit of dimension so I did the yellow flower as well ;-) The lines on the cup was traced with the gold watercolor to give some sparkle, and I thought a little gold flower sequin would look really cute! 


Newton's Nook Designs Cultivated Cacti Set - Naki Rager


Now my first card with the Cultivated Cacti set!
I am sticking with the prickly/pointy theme here {LOL}
The background was embossed with triangle embossing folder on my favorite, linen cardstock ;-) I just LOVE the texture on them!


Newton's Nook Designs Cultivated Cacti Set - Naki Rager


How much do you love this sentiment!!? {LOL}
Oh man...it cracks me up every time I see it! :-D I love it so much, I had to heat emboss it separately with gold and pop it on! My beautiful cacti were both heat embossed with green and a little bit of gold, I thought dipping them in gold might be fun ;-) It's a pretty simply design but I love how it turned out!


Newton's Nook Designs Cultivated Cacti Set - Naki Rager


Last but not least, my second card with the Cultivated Cacti set ;-)
This one is also simple but very organic! I immediately grabbed the hexagon die because it looks like those pretty glass dome things that you plant pretty succulents in ;-) 


Newton's Nook Designs Cultivated Cacti Set - Naki Rager


After inking up the aloe stamp with antique linen distressed ink, I applied some water directly on it with a paint brush then stamped onto watercolor paper. I colored it with green, purple, and yellow. I did the same thing with the pot image but I used the orange. I applied a bit too much water on this one so the stamped image didn't show the beautiful details, but no worries! I traced it with red ink and ta-da! The background was colored with light blue, then some water splatters were applied. I love this little sentiment, so cute, isn't it!? It was heat embossed on vellum (I know, refreshing...LOL) and since I didn't have the right size speech bubble die, I drew the outline with white gel pen and made my own ;-)
