Newton's Nook Designs May Release Day 1

Hi crafty friends! It is time for another fabulous release from Newton's Nook Designs and today is Day 1 of the reveals! We are sharing projects made using the NEW hot foil plates and dies! I'm super excited about these and love hot foiling on my cards! The release will be available in the shop on Friday, May, 19th.
 Here is what I created:

I used the new Jar Hot Foil Plate along with the Fireflies Hot Foil Plates and tried to make a glowy card. Both sets come with coordinating dies but I hot foiled directly onto the card stock. I also used the new Bright Sentiments Hot Foil Plate across the top of the card layer. I wanted to keep the design simple to really have the foiled images pop. I hot foiled with silver foil for the jar and sentiment and gold foil for the fireflies.

Next I ink blended the background from dark to light around the edges and added yellow around the fireflies for the glow effect. I added sparkle to the wings and for a finishing touch added a few sparkly gems. 

Here is a closer look at the new hot foiled products that are featured for today's reveal:
