Newton's Nook Designs April Release Day 4

Thursday, April 19, 2018

Hello, lovelies!
Welcome to the final day of the Newton's Nook Designs April Release!
All the new products will be available for purchase tomorrow Friday the 20th in the Newton's Nook Designs Shop! Woo Hoo!
Today we have 2 3"x4" stamp sets, called "Little Lilies" and "April Showers".

Lily of the Valley is one of my favorite flowers!
They're so tiny and dainty, I'm so happy that Jen made this beautiful little stamp set πŸ’™

Who else loves these little big seasonal sentiment sets!?
It all started with the fall set, and now we have this adorable spring on with those adorable tiny images! πŸ’›

Alright, let's move onto my projects...;-)

Newton's Nook Designs Little Lilies Set - Naki Rager

First I sponged the background with Tattered Rose and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide Ink and splattered some water, I was picturing a beautiful sunrise πŸŒ„ I then die cut my "soil" with the Land Borders Die Set from this patterned paper to create a garden.

I wanted to color them light purple just like the one we have in our garden, so I stamped the image with Broken China Distress Ink on watercolor paper and did some no-line watercolor. I picked blue because both green and purple have blue in them so I figured it'd make it easier to blend colors. The sentiment was heat embossed with gold tinsel embossing powder, added a few droplets and sparkling clear sequins as the morning dewπŸŒ·πŸ’§

My Spring Shower card is also a garden!
Well, this one is more like a field filled with pretty wildflowers πŸ˜‰
I die cut the scallop frame with the Frames & Flags Die Set from white cardstock, 
sponged it with a sponge to get this gloomy sky, stamped my little flowers and butterflies, then heat embossed the sentiment with chartreuse embossing powder.

I colored the flowers, butterflies, and the grass with colored pencils, then stamped the umbrella on a scrap, colored with colored pencils, fussy cut it, then glued it to the front panel. I added Silver Lining Nuvo Crystal Drops to the metal bar, white to the little flower petals that are with the sentiment, also Sugared Almond to the center of them. A few 3mm sparkling clear sequins were added as the rain and done! This little stamp set gives you everything you need to create a whole scenery!
