Newton's Nook Designs Message In A Bottle Set - Naki Rager

I am so sad to see the Message In A Bottle Set go!!!
It is such a fun and cool set 💛

Newton's Nook Designs Message In A Bottle Set - Naki Rager

First, I watercolored this awesome octopus in yellow then die cut him out using the coordinating Message In A Bottle Die Set. I die cut 3 more so that I could stagger them (I really should get some chipboard, you know!!?). Now the fun but time-consuming part! I traced the outside of the bigger bottle die with a pencil on white cardstock and fussy cut, I think I made 5 of them. Then to create a window for my shaker, I die cut all of them with the bottle die. I did the same thing with vellum, which was mounted on top of the acetate sheet that I also fussy cut. Mr. Octopus and the bottle are about the same thickness so that he wouldn't get buried in the bead seawater.

I couldn't NOT use this cool scroll of letter image for this cute sentiment!
I stamped the image with brown on kraft cardstock for a vintage look and added some shadows with colored pencils. The sentiment was heat embossed with Ranger Vintage Photo Distress Embossing Powder for an aged look. I used the same distress EP on the anchor except for this, I only sprinkled a pinch of it before covering the image with yellow EP to make it rusty. I made a little hole using the 1/8" hole punch. 

This cool background was created with the Waves Stencil.
I added waves with the Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Ink first, then shifted the stencil just a little bit and added more waves with the Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide Ink. I went over the waves with the Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink very lightly and splattered a little bit of water. I assembled my card and thought it was missing something... I went to my bedroom to grab one of the necklace extensions, colored it with copper acrylic paint, and hooked it to the anchor. 

So many awesome sets are retiring so don't forget to check out the Retiring Products Category to see what is going away and grab your favorites before they are gone for good!

Thanks for stopping by!
Stay healthy, stay safe, and be kind to each other 😊
Helping each other is what we need in this difficult time!

Here's a card you can make quickly!

Newton's Nook Designs Baby Bibs + Stitched Onesie Die Sets - Naki Rager

The new Baby Bibs Die Set is not just adorable but super versatile!
You can use it with the Bitty Bibs Stamp set, or just use patterned paper like I did here. Oh, and look at this! The Stitched Onesie Die goes so well with these bibs! The custom sentiment was die cut using the Essential Alphabet Die Set, I just love this mighty die set 💛 

Newton's Nook Designs Baby Bibs + Stitched Onesie Die Sets - Naki Rager

This soft rainbow background was created with 1/4"~3/8" wide of scrap. It's easy, and you get to use some of your scrap you're hoarding! (I know you are! I am!!! LOL) You can certainly substitute them with washi tape, too ;-)

So that is it!
I hope you liked it!
Thanks for stopping by!
