Newton's Nook Designs July Release - Freshly Squeezed + Dog Days of Summer

Hi crafty friends! Today is the first reveal day of Newton's Nook Designs July release. This month is extra special because Newton's Nook Designs is celebrating it's 3 year anniversary! Today we're not just showcasing one, but TWO new stamp sets!
The first card showcases the new Freshly Squeezed set. I used a scalloped rectangle die for the focal panel and lightly inked the background with Squeezed Lemonade and Mustard Seed distress inks. I used green polka dot pattern paper for the background and used a stitched border die to cut a thin strip of matching green card stock to add along the bottom. To finish the card, I add 4mm and 6mm Sunshine Glow sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

For my second card, I used the adorable snorkling pup from the new Dog Days of Summer set. I inked a square background with Broken China and Mermaid Lagoon distress inks. I then cut a stitched frame using to stitched square stackable dies. I colored the inner stitched portion with a light gray Copic Marker. I then matted the focal panel onto a navy  backdrop. For the background, I used the chisel end of my gray Copic Marker to draw vertical lines. To finish the card, I added some twine and Clear Droplets from Pretty Pink Posh.
