Welcome to the last day of the April Release from Newton’s Nook Designs.  This has been an amazing month and we are finishing off with style!!  Two, yes two, more stamp sets to show you today.  Woohoo!!  Both of these are just what you need to bring a little spring sunshine into your craft room!

Just Because by Jen Timko | Little Lilies Stamp Set and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Stitched Circle Scallop Frames by MFT StampsFirst up is Little Lilies.  I love these sweet little flowers so much and literally ran right down to stamp with it when it arrived on my doorstep.  I colored the flower with my Zig Clean Color Markers and then cut it out with the coordinating dies.

Just Because by Jen Timko | Little Lilies Stamp Set and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Stitched Circle Scallop Frames by MFT StampsI added just a little touch of light gray and green on the ends of the flowers to give a little dimension to the white flowers.  Onto a base of Bristol Smooth paper, I swirled on a little bit of Distress Ink and sprinkled it with water.  I am a big fan of a “just because” card since I can use them for so many things so I chose it for my sentiment.  The flower went perfectly with this little scalloped circle frame so I added that and then the flower on top.  I dug through and found a few sequins to finish the card.

April Showers by Jen Timko | April Showers Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs, Wood Textures Card Stock by Stampin' UpThe second set for today is called April Showers.  I have to tell you, I am SERIOUSLY hoping this sentiment is true!!  I am done with winter weather and really ready for some flowers and butterflies!  I used a yellow embossing powder on vellum for the sentiment and then cut it out with a banner die.  I pulled out my trusty sewing machine (see, mom, I still know how to use it!!) and stitched the banner onto some Wood Textures paper.April Showers by Jen Timko | April Showers Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs, Wood Textures Card Stock by Stampin' UpIt is a little hard to see in the big picture so I’m giving you a close up of the little beads that I attached to the centers of the flowers and onto the banner.  I used the Multi-Medium Matte Glue for those.  There are additional images that are super cute that go with the sentiment and I’m sure the DT has some great examples with those.

I hope that you have enjoyed all of my cards this week.  I very much enjoy hearing from you in the comments and your kind words always bring a smile.  Thanks for letting me be a part of your day!  Now for your chance to win!!

Oh, I wish I had some pretty white lilies like this for my new garden.
Hubby doesn’t like white, but I love them! I love how simply elegant
your lily card is. And I love how you stitched your banner onto the cs
in the 2nd card. The little beads are such a perfect little touch.
