Newton's Nook Designs 3 Year Celebration Release - Aloha Newton & Hibiscus Die

Thursday, July 14, 2016

Hello lovelies!
Welcome to the final day of the Newton's Nook Designs 3 Year Celebration Release!
I hope you have been enjoying the reveal all week!
Didn't Jennifer do a fabulous job designing all the beautiful new sets!?
Well, I think we saved the best for the big finale today!!!

I truly look forward to new kitty sets every month, and I don't know how Jen does it but she makes me say "Oh my gosh! This is the cutest set ever!" everytime! *LOL*

I am not sure if I have a word for this beautiful die...
I mean, look at this!!! 

Okay, I made two cards with each set, ready!? ;-)

I know, I'm sorry I am so predictable...
But I HAD to water color this cutie!!! *LOL*

My kitty is all nice and tanned, relaxing in this beautiful flower bed!
She was SO MUCH FUN to color!!!
I borrowed the leaf image from the Tiki Time set to make a nice, comfy bed for her ;-)

I also borrowed the little flower that is stamped all over on the base with purple, and the sentiment from the Tiki Time set. Isn't the purple just beautiful with the poppy hibiscus and greens!?

Now my hibiscus card ;-)

I LOVE this die so much, I decided to go banana with it!

It was a lot of cranking the handle on the big shot!
I die cut the flowers from Poppy Parade and Very Vanilla cardstock.
I pooped the pretty flowers with different levels of foam tape. 

The background was created with the dry paint, I sprinkled some chartreuse on watercolor paper then spritzed some water, done! The sentiment was die cut from the Pool Party Cardstock then was brushed with the clear glitter pen.
