Newton's Nook: Day 4 of July Reveals

It's day four of the July Release reveals at 
Newton's Nook Designs!
Today we are featuring the set called "Newton's Summer Vacation"
This set will be given away to two lucky winners, so stop by the 
Newton's Nook Blog to leave a comment!

This ended up being my favorite card of the week!  
Turquoise and orange is one of my fav color combos, but I 
also had a lot of fun coloring in Newton and his little pal :)
I stamped onto the reverse side of a white textured cardstock with Staz-On ink.
I like to use Staz-On when working with watercolor pencils and blending brush 
because it doesn't bleed.  I colored in the design with Faber Castell Aquarelles

Next, I partially stamped Newton onto a small piece of clear acetate overlay with Staz-On
and then trimmed out around the goggles.  I colored the rim of the goggles with
a red alcohol marker and attached over the stamped image with Zip-Dry glue.

I used a Tombow glue pen to attach the baker's twine around the die-cut.
Patterned papers and enamel dots are from Doodlebug Design.
This is definitely a card that will go into my "keeper" bin...I can't part with it!

♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV.

A SN@P December Daily

**For the UNITY BLOG HOP, click --HERE--**

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
