Newton's Nook July Release Day 3!!



It's Day 3 of the Newton's Nook Designs July Release celebration and today we have two new sets featuring Sharks and Flamingos!!! These sets are similar to the previously released Woof Pack, Company of Cats and Frozen Fellowship. So if you liked these sets Shark Frenzy and Flamingo Flock are must-haves for your collection! 


My first card features Shark Frenzy... I created a Distress Ink background on a piece of watercolor paper and then I stamped and colored the shark image on a piece of X-Press It blending cardstock and colored it in with several shades of Blue and Grey copics. 


Then I trimmed the image out and adhered it to the background with some foam tape. I added some Clear Wink of Stella to parts of the image for a little pop of sparkle. I die cut a sentiment banner using the Frames and Flags die set and stamped the image in Grey ink. 


My next card features Flamingo Flock and I think it's my Favourite!! 


I created a Black card base and then I added a Pink scalloped rectangle using the Frames and Flags Die set. I stamped the Flamingos onto a piece of X-Press it blending cardstock and die cut the panel using the smaller rectangle from the same die set. Then I colored them in with Copics and adhered it to the panel with foam tape. I used the Frames and Flags die set for the sentiment strip as well. 


I wanted a little pop of sparkle on this one so I went with some mixed Sparkling Clear Sequins. This is such a cute set!! Which one is your favorite?
