Welcome to the last day of the May Release from Newton’s Nook Designs. And for the last day we have not one but TWO adorable Newton sets for you. YAY!!! Yep, two of the greatest things in the world….boxes and donuts.
If you have ever known a cat, you already know all about the phrase “if it fits, it sits”. Well, the new Newton Loves Boxes is all about fitting and sitting!! It is hilarious. When Jennifer Jackson first showed the team the images, we all went just a little bit crazy! Pretty sure that will be the reaction from all of you today too. I created a background with the Pawprints Stencil and Distress Inks and then cut it out with the Frames and Flags Die. I colored up out furry friend and his box and then cut him out with the coordinating die set for the stamp. Don’t you think this sentiment is perfect for the image. Seriously, this cracks me up.
For my second card, I get to introduce Newton’s Donut. Well, I actually colored MY donut. That I want. Right now. But until I can figure out how to get it from him, it is Newtons’ donut. *smile* And because I am pretty sure sprinkles should always include pink and lime green, that is what I chose for the colors.
I made the donut into a chocolate version with vanilla frosting (a favorite of mine) and then tucked in this adorable kitty colored with gray. And there is something about the images with kitty “beans” (paw pads) that make me smile! I used a base of lime patterned paper and some great (retired) pink washi tape to pull the colors from the sprinkles and then added on some sequins in the same colors. On a technical note, I just have to tell you how well engineered this donut die is. Look at the placement of the cut-outs…really fantastic and easy to use! I love the time that is put into each of these sets. It always makes me so proud when I can support Newton’s Nook Designs and their hard work!
This daily double is a real win and I know you will all be as in love with the sets as I am. And now for a chance for free stamps!
