It's day one of the July Release reveals at 
Newton's Nook Designs!

This set will be given away to two lucky winners, so stop by the 
Newton's Nook Blog to leave a comment!

"Newton's Daydream"

My card sample is a combination of paper piecing stamped images and a
bit of watercoloring.  I first stamped the image onto solid orange patterned paper and then
shaded the edges with Faber-Castell's #117 and #121 Aquarelles.

I stamped the image again onto white cardstock (for the flowers), light blue cardstock
(for the background) and the green floral print (for the foreground).  
The card base was embossed with a bee embossing folder by LifeStyle Crafts...
I thought it would be the perfect compliment for the little bee stamp!

Do you remember a few years back when the altered lunch tins were all the rage?  Well, I've had a couple in my keeps and ran across them the other day.  I thought one dressed up in Authentique Paper would be perfect for Christmas, so I chose the Festive Collection and coordinating stamps from Unity, Naughty or Nice (which is now on SALE!)
 In times past I have covered the top of the tin (when I actually had a pattern), but I  went with tons of colorful ribbons and stamped tags on the handle instead.
 After measuring the height of the body, I cut two strips of "Joyful" paper into 5x12".
Next, I cut two strips of "Glistening" paper int…
