Hello there lovelies!
Welcome back to the Newton's Nook Designs March Release Reveal!

Today is day 3 and we are showcasing this amazing, gorgeous set "Cottage Garden" along with the coordinating die set! 

Oh my goodness!
Isn't this just so very beautiful!!?
As soon as I saw this set, a few designs popped in my head immediately!

Alright, here's one...:-)

Newton's Nook Designs Cottage Garden Set - Naki Rager

First of all, I apologize for my photo quality lately...
Ever since I switched my phone, I can't figure out how to take clear photos! Ugh!

Anyway, my first design was to emboss these gorgeous images in many different colors! Well, not as many as I planned...{LOL} My girls have these pajamas that have solid animal images in mint, coral, and gray. This stamp set totally reminded me of them and that's what I wanted to recreate, but because I decided to use kraft for my front panel, the whole design had to change ;-)

Newton's Nook Designs Cottage Garden Set - Naki Rager

Here's one of the reasons why I love photopolymer stamps...
I bent the flower image as I was placing it on my clear block to get this look ;-)
The sentiment was heat embossed separately on each side with the Weathered White Emboss Powder, love the distressed look with the Scandinavian-ish images! 
I thought framing this beauty was the best way to showcase it, and first I grabbed green to add one more color, but I remembered this old patterned paper pack from Stampin' Up! that had the same coral color, and wow! the patterns on this one were just perfect! 
No embellishments were needed on this rustic, homey design!
