NND August Release Day 1 – Believe in Unicorns



It is the first day of the August release at Newton’s Nook Designs. You will absolutely love today’s stamp set.  If you’re like me and love unicorns, this set is a must-have. You also have a chance to win each stamp set during release week so check out the details I have I indicated at the end of this blog post.

For today’s cards, I am showcasing the adorable Believe in Unicorns stamp set and it’s coordinating dies.




I wanted to create a heavenly scene for my lovely unicorns. For the first card, I started out by using my sunburst stencil, on Neenah solar white cardstock and I adhered my colorful vellum on top. this created some dimension and lovely details to my card. I also used the clouds border die to die-cut my clouds. Here is my first card:



For my second card, I started out by using the Starfield stencil by NND with my fossilized Amber distress oxide ink. I die-cut the clouds with the clouds border die and the Rainbow using a die from my stash. I adhered the rainbow to my card front, as well as the clouds. I used my foam tape to adhere my unicorn, and stamped my sentiment using my new stamping platform tool by Tim Holtz. I finished my design by adding the 4mm sparkling clear solid confetti mix from Kat Scrappiness. here is my second card:
