For Day 4, we are showcasing the Snowflake Oval Stamp Set that coordinates with the Oval Frames Die Set.

I started by prepping the pink card stock with the anti-static powder tool. I stamped the image with Versamark ink and sprinkled some gold embossing powder, then heat-set with the heating tool.

I stamped the sentiment also with Versamark ink and used the same gold embossing powder.

Next, I die-cut the focal panel using the Oval Frames Die Set and foam-mounted on a gold oval frames notecard for added dimension. This card is really simple but I love how it turned out.

Hello and Welcome to the Newton’s Nook October Release. I hope you were able to check out the reveals from Monday.  You also have a chance to win the stamp set being revealed each day so please read through til the end of the blog post to find out more info.  [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.

For Day 3, we are showcasing the Christmas Nap Stamp Set + Coordinating Dies with the Newton’s Gift Stamp Set and Coordinating Dies.

I started by stamping my images on some X-Press It Blending Card and colored the images in with alcohol markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

Next, I ink-blended some Bristol Smooth white card stock and covered the bottom part with masking tape. I used the Starfield Stencil and Antique Linen Distress oxide ink with my blending brush. I removed the masking tape and lightly ink-blended the same color at the bottom of the panel. I adhered this on some A2-size white notecard.

I added the focal image on the card with foam adhesive for more dimension. I stamped the sentiment using Versamark ink on a strip of red card stock. I sprinkled some white embossing powder and heat-set with the heating tool, adhering the sentiment with liquid glue. Here’s another look:

My next project was also stamped on some X-Press It blending card and die-cut with the coordinating die. I also die-cut the tag using the Fancy Edges Tag Die Set with the new Canine Christmas Paper Pad and some Neenah solar white card stock, adhering them with liquid glue.

The focal image was foam-mounted onto the tag for added dimension.

I finished the tag by adding some red ribbon and gold jingle bell, then stamped the sentiment with some red dye ink. Here’s another look:

NND October Release Day 2 – Christmas Haul and Wreath Pups + Giveaway

Hello and Welcome to the Newton’s Nook October Release. I hope you were able to check out yesterday’s reveal.  You also have a chance to win the stamp set being revealed each day so please read through til the end of the blog post to find out more info.  [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.

For Day 2, we are showcasing the Christmas Haul Stamp Set + Coordinating Dies with the Wreath Pups Stamp Set + Coordinating Dies.

I started by stamping my images on some X-Press It Blending Card and colored the images in with alcohol markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

Next, I ink-blended some Bristol Smooth white card stock with some Distress Oxide ink and adhered this panel on some A2-size notecard. I die-cut a panel of some Neenah Solar white card stock using the oval die from the Oval Frames Die Set to create a window. I dry-embossed this using some embossing folder and foam-mounted this panel for added dimension.

I covered the card front with some masking tape and use some diluted white gouache to add some white splatters on the background for added texture. I adhered the focal image on the panel with liquid glue. Lastly, I added some white pearls for added texture and interest and stamped the sentiment with black ink to finish the design. Here’s another look:

My next project has a ton of texture! I used the Snowfall Stencil with some texture paste on some Neenah Solar White Card Stock. I set this aside to dry for about half an hour and adhered this panel on some A2-size notecard.

Next, I die-cut some Bristol Smooth White card using a die from the Frames & Flags Die Set and ink-blended this panel with some distress oxide inks. I also die-cut the snowbank using the Land Border Die and adhered this piece on the card with liquid glue.

Foam-mounting the focal image was necessary to create more dimension to this rather simple card. The sentiment was stamped with Versamark ink and heat-set with heating tool and adhered on the card with liquid glue.

I finished the card design by using some white gel pen to add some dots and stars for added texture and interest. Here’s another look:

I started by stamping my images on some X-Press It Blending Card and colored the images in with alcohol markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

On some A2-size Neenah solar white card stock, I used some masking tape and temporarily adhere it diagonally and used some blending brush and SpuN Sugar Distress Oxide ink to slightly add color to this panel. I then used the Starfield Stencil and some texture paste to add more texture to the panel. I set this aside to let it dry for about half an hour and adhered the colored image to the panel.

Next, I adhered the card front on some red notecard. I also adhered some white card stock inside the notecard measuring 4 X 5 1/4.

I die-cut the sentiment strip using a one of the dies from the Frames & Flags die set. I stamped the sentiment using VersaMark ink and sprinkled some white embossing powder. I used my heating tool to heat set and adhered the strip onto the card with liquid glue.

I finished the card design by adding a gold star on top of the tree and gold baubles for added texture. Here’s another look:
