Newton's Nook Designs June Release - Cuppa Cactus & Cultivated Cacti + coordinating dies

hello!
back again with the Newton's Nook Designs June release!!


this month's release is amazing, fun and SO CUTE!
today the whole team is showing off the Cuppa Cactus & Cultivated Cacti + coordinating dies! you can totally create a project life type spread, gift tags and, of course, cards! all of the new sets will be available for purchase on June 16th, right here!

my first card uses those cute cute cute cacti from the Cucca Cactus set!


I colored in all of the images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers, and then die cut them out! one of the images was even cut three more times to place around my card! Ha ha!


i popped up some of the cacti with foam tape! oh, for the background, I used Squeezed Lemonade and Mustard Seed Distress Inks to create the soft, blended background!
for the background of the card base, I stamped the images randomly with black ink! 

for my second card I used the Cultivated Cacti set!


I colored directly onto the stamp images with the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and then added shading and dimension once the images were stamps with the markers, too! 
some of the images were popped up with foam tape, and the background was created with Peacock Feathers Distress ink!


I finished the card off by flicking black ink all over the whole thing!
