Hello Friend by Jen Timko | Cottage Garden Stamp Set and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Distress Ink, Watercolor I’m up today over at the Newton’s Nook Designs blog today and I want to share all the details with you here.  My project focuses on the Cottage Garden Stamp Set and coordinating dies.

The art in this beautiful stamp set is unique and really pretty but I also fell in love with the sentiments.  I created this card to show one of them off and to also highlight that the dies are able to multitask.  On a piece of watercolor paper (Tim Holtz Distress), I sponged on some different Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Picked Raspberry, Mowed Lawn, Blueprint Sketch and Squeezed Lemonade then splattered on a bit of water.  Using the dies, I cut out the flowers big and small.  Additionally I created a frame with the ovals from my Stitched Shapes dies.  I stamped the sentiment in Picked Raspberry onto a white base (using the Misti helps since I needed to stamp a few times given the nature of Distress Ink).  All I had to do was group my flowers and add some Basic Pearls.

I love when die sets lend themselves to quick cards and I think these flowers are ones I’ll return to again and again (and of course, all the other adorable shapes in the set!).  Back tomorrow with the latest from Freshly Made Sketches.  Thanks so much for stopping in.  See you soon!
