Newton's Nook Designs' May Release ~ Day 2

Welcome back to the second day of Newton's Nook Designs' May Release!  Today Jen is releasing a cool versatile stamp set with some cool patterns and designs as well as TWO dies that complement it.  Introducing 'Adventure Awaits':

And the purr-fectly complementary die set 'Points & Plumes':

AND the purr-fectly complementary die set 'Splendid Stags':

(I personally LOVE these!)

For some reason, my romantic nature won over my sense of adventure and I was channeling Valentine's Day with this set:

Adventure Awaits Valentine by Crafty Math Chick | Adventure Awaits stamp set and Points & Plumes dies by Newton's Nook Designs

I had fun die cutting all the different styles of arrows (so many different styles in the stamp images too!) creating this background design.  

The stag dies took me in two directions.  First to Father's Day with this rustic woodgrain card (LOVE woodgrain - the sentiments are from NND's Winston's BBQ BTW):

And then to Christmas:

Merry Rudolph Reindeer card by Crafty Math Chick | Splendid Stag dies, Happy Little Thoughts Stamp set & Holiday Wishes stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs

(Okay, okay, truth be told, my mind went to Christmas first - I saw that silhouette and instantly envisions putting a red rhinestone on that nose!  But Father's Day is more seasonal at the moment, so I uploaded that one first).  Seriously though, how EASY would it be to crank out a BUNCH of these in a short period of time when you are wicked busy with holiday goings on?  The wreath is from 'Happy Little Thoughts' which was revealed yesterday and the 'Merry' sentiment is from the whimsical 'Holiday Wishes' NND stamp set.  I can't wait to play with this design in other color combinations... thought I do love my woodgrain.  ;)
