Doxies Happy Holidays with Newton’s Nook

Hello my crafty peeps!  I hope you are having a great week so far.  I am back today for Newton’s Nook showcasing a cute older stamp set called Holiday Hounds, mixing it up with Snow Globe Scenes stamp set.  I love that you can mix and match these stamp sets to create some cute cards.

I started out by stamping the doxies and the trees with my memento tuxedo black ink on neenah solar white card stock.  I colored my images in with my Copic markers and run it through my die-cutting machine with the coordinating dies.  I die-cut the rest of the elements that I needed to create my scene using different dies from my collection.

I wanted to create a fun card today so I decided to make a shaker card.  I adhered my “sky” background to my card base first, then adhered the acetate sheets to my frame, and added foam adhesives.

I die-cut a circle card stock and colored it with my Copic markers to create some shading for the moon, then stamped the flying Santa and reindeers from the Snow Globe Scenes stamp set.  I adhered the moon to the front panel.

I added my favorite sequin mixes from Kat Scrappiness for my shaker elements, and adhered my frame to the card panel.  I finished my design by adding Nuvo white Crystal drops to the houses and trees, and glossy accents to the lightbulbs.

So Much to be Thankful For Card with ClearSnap and Xyron

Hello my crafty friends! I hope you are having a great day!  I am super thrilled to share my card today.  The Xyron design team received some amazing products from ClearSnap and the team will be showing you projects this week, showcasing some ink pads by ClearSnap and adhesives by Xyron.

 

I started out by die-cutting some fall leaves using a die set by Lawn Fawn on Neenah solar white 110 lb. card stock and colored them in using the Color Box Cat’s Eye.  The colors I received are perfect for fall.  I dabbed the ink pad onto the card stock directly until I got some nice colors on the leaves.

 

 

I also die-cut an A2 size Neenah solar white card stock, using my Cross Stitched Rectangle Die by Kat Scrappiness.  I also used a die from my collection to die-cut the wreath.  I adhered the wreath onto my card front.

 

Before I adhered the leaves onto the wreath, I decided to stamp my sentiment first using my stamping tool, with the Coal Ink box.  I wanted my sentiment to look crisp and bold against the colorful fall leaves.

 

 

I run the colorful die-cut leaves with my Xyron 1.5 Inch Sticker Maker so that I can have edge-to-edge adhesive on the leaves and it will be easier to adhere them all onto my card.

You can easily mass-produce this card.  I think it turned out so simple yet elegant and is perfect to give to family and friends for the Thanksgiving holiday coming up next month.

Pumpkin Spice in my Latte

Hello my crafty friends.  I am up for Kat Scrappiness today to share with you a simple coffee-themed shaker tag, showcasing products available at the shop.

I started out by stamping my images using the Pumpkin Spice Stamp Set and Dies by Lawn Fawn on Neenah solar white with my Memento Tuxedo black ink.  I colored the images in with my Copic markers and die-cut them with its coordinating.

I wanted to create a cute shaker tag to use some new sequins from the shop, the Teal Woodgrain Flat and 6mm Orange AB Hallow Circle mix so I die-cut a medium tag using my Kat Scrappiness Stitched Scalloped Nesting Dies with the Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Fall Collection Paper Pad.  I stamped my sentiment onto my tag, and assembled the shaker tag.

I hope you like my shaker tag.  I have also listed and linked the supplies I used below if you’re interested.  Please use my coupon code Maria10 for 10% off your order at the shop.  Have an amazing day!
