Newton's Nook 5 Year Anniversary Blog Hop


 

Hi there, crafty friends!   I'm super excited to be joining the Newton's Nook design team and special guests for the 5 Year Celebration Blog Hop!   I thoroughly enjoyed my time as a NND design team member, and I was thrilled Jen asked me to be a part of their 5th year celebratory blog hop!  Now - on to my projects!
First up, a card using a brand new stencil and one of my all-time favorite NND sets, Tranquil Tides.   I started by inking a square panel of Yupo paper with shades of turquoise, blue and purple alcohol inks.   Next, I used the brand new Tropical Fish Stencil and spread on some metallic embossing paste.  After allowing that to dry a bit, I added a shaker element with a vellum window.   A tropical fish & piece of coral stamped, heat embossed and die cut from Tranquil Tides finished off this card!


Next up is a card using the super fun new Shark Frenzy stamp set!  I created a card fit for a dapper dude by first adhering three shades of grey cardstock to a thin piece of white  paper.   I stamped and heat embossed the sharks on this piece.  I fussy cut a little bow tie for one of the sharks to go along with the funny sentiment!
I hope you've been enjoying the hop!   Details on how to win one of FIVE fabulous prizes from NND are below. Your next stop is the super talented Jen Shurkus!
