Welcome back to the second day of the July reveals for Newton's Nook Designs! Get ready to feast your eyes on THREE (that's right! THREE!) stamp sets and THREE (uh huh!) puur-fectly coordinating die sets from Jen today! Introducing 'Party Pops' (which gave me memories of chasing the ice cream truck as it drove by):
and 'Pineapple Delight':
AND 'Tiki Time' (how cool and original is THIS set?!!):
I always had trouble deciding on ONE ice cream treat off the ice cream truck, so I decided to show off a rainbow of colors & flavors in my 'Party Pops' card:
(for the record, I learned the heard way you cannot just heat emboss some clear EP on brown cardstock and run it through your die cut machine and get perfect glossy chocolate topping - there is an unattractive rim around the edge where the metal die is, and I didn't have time for Glossy Accents to dry, so matte chocolate it is!)
I was feeling elegant with 'Pineapple Time' and created this card with heat embossed gold EP and some gold foil cardstock from American Crafts:
The moment I saw 'Tiki Time' I was transported to my childhood and this yummy Chinese food restaurant we used to frequent as a family. I was too young to partake, but they served these tropical fruity drinks in kiln fired glossy looking tiki-shaped tall cups; that is what I drew inspiration from with my card:
The Tiki cups are heat embossed with brown EP to give them a glossy appearance like the beverages I remembered. I had fun accenting them with the accessory images and dies from the sets. Isn't Jen's 'You're Tiki-rific!' sentiment great?!! SO original too!!
