Newton's Nook Designs' June Release ~ Day 1


Hello!  Welcome to the first day of sneak peeks for Newton's Nook Designs' June Release.  Some ADORABLE sets this month I tell ya!  Allow me to introduce, the very versatile 'In Slow Motion':


Aren't all the little critters endearing?!!  There is even a sloth!!  And this set covers everything from birthdays (on time or belated) to just saying hello for no reason at all.  First I used the happy snail to create a belated birthday card (sadly, a lot of birthdays are springing up on me lately before I have time to get cards out):

I cut think 1/4" strips of red & blue cardstock from my scrap envelopes and pasted them at a diagonal to mimic the postal lines you see on a lot of envelopes (and tried coloring in the snail's letter that way around the edges too) - a great way to create a background and use up some scraps at the same time right?  After all, every day is Earth Day!  ;)  I used a little postage stamp punch by Martha Stewart to create some faux stamps so I could stamp the postmark from the set over them.  

For my second card I planned to go really CAS with the cute little inch worm and some tape measure ribbon I found at Michaels (it is authentic too, I lined it up with a ruler and the increments are accurate!):

At first I was going for a stark CAS look with just the wormie and strips, but then I thought the top needed a little something, so I paper pieced the party hats in colors matching the sentiment strips under the tape measure.  So, which is your faovirte and why?
