NND January Release – Sending Hugs Stamp Set and Dies


It is the second day of the January reveals by Newton’s Nook Designs and today we are showcasing the Sending Hugs Stamp Set and Coordinating Dies.  I love that the dies cut through the arms and it can hug the little images included in the stamp set. [Just a little important note:  I know some of you had difficulties finding the comments section.  If you would like to leave a comment to participate in the giveaway, the “comments section” will only be ever visible when a single post on Word Press is being viewed.

I stamped all of the images on Neenah Solar White card stock and colored them in with my Copic markers.  I die-cut the images using the coordinating dies.

I die-cut a piece of white card stock measuring 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 and used a die from my stash to cut out the window.  I also used another die to die-cut a branch for my Owl to perch on.  I finished my design my adding the pink hearts from the Love Bites die set (showcased yesterday).  Here’s my first card:


For my second card, I wanted to create a non-Valentine project.  The stamp set is so versatile and you can use this for any occasion.  Here’s my birthday card:
