Revisiting a sweet set from Newton’s Nook
Happy Monday from my arm chair to yours! This arm chair will be my friend for the next week, since I had my gallbladder removed on Friday. So I am in recovery mode. Let me tell you, ER visits and surgeries are very scary during this Covid stuff. You do everything alone. Thank goodness for cell phones.
Last week I had the privilege of making some Thank You cards for a friend of mine who sells Mary Kay. Today I am showing you the first one. I will have the second on Thursday. For the first one I used Newton’s Nook Dainty Daisies. I have colored this set up several times, with both Copic Markers and Colored pencils. I love that you can use the main flower stamp for almost any occasion. I am pretty sure I will be hanging onto this set for a while.
I used C.C. Designs 4 Season Sentiment, stamping with Versafine and heat embossing with clear powder. If you are a regular here you know this is how I generally do my sentiments. Do you have a specific way you love to do sentiments? Drop me a note and tell me what yours are!
I really wanted to go for a white daisy look, so I partially colored the petals. Focusing on making the centers pop with color.
