Newton's Nook Designs--A Wine & Cheese Party

Hi everyone! Today is the second day of the Newton's Nook Design's Launch Party, and I can't wait to share my projects for this great set.


Today's stamps come from the set Just Say Cheese, which will be available Friday at the Newton's Nook site. I made a mini ensemble for a wine and cheese party:



I used three different cheese stamps from the Just Say Cheese set, and there are other types of cheese as well. The "brie" and "Gouda" were masked from punny sentiments in the set. I paper pieced the cheese with two types of patterned paper for each. I don't think I was technically accurate on the colors, but they are cartoon cheeses. ;)

Here's a close-up of the invitation:


I paper pieced the Swiss cheese and the cute heart separately. The rest of the invitation was done in Photoshop.

And using two other types of cheese, I made food picks. First is the Gouda:



And the brie:



Are you hungry now, too? :)
