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.

Here is the card:

I hope you got inspired today to create cute holiday shaker cards.  I have listed and linked the supplies I used in case you are interested.  Have an amazing day!

25 Days of Christmas Tags with Newton’s Nook

25DaysTagsBadge

Today the Newton’s Nook Design Team is joining www.inmycreativeopinion.blogspot.ca for the 25 Days of Christmas Tags.

For my Christmas tags below, I’m showcasing the Holiday Hounds stamp set and coordinating dies, with the Santa Paws Newton and the Sentiments of the Season stamp set.

I stamped my images on Bristol Smooth card stock using memento tuxedo black ink.  I colored the images in with my Copic markers.  I die-cut them with the coordinating dies.  I also die-cut the tags in white card stock, as well as patterned paper.  For the other two tags, I used my blending tools and broken china distress oxide inks.

To finish the design, I used one of my all-time favorite dies by Newton’s Nook called Pines and Holly Die Set and added the greenery to the tag.  Here’s what they look like:

NNDDachshundTags

Aren’t they cute?  They almost look like Christmas ornaments.

I hope you all got inspired today.  Please visit www.inmycreativeopinion.blogspot.ca for more holiday inspiration and information about the 25 Days of Christmas tags.  Have an amazing day!

NNDOCT17_SnowglobeScenes +ShakerDIE

For the first card, I cut an A2 size (4 1/4 by 5 1/2) Neenah Solar White card stock and used the Snow Globe shaker die to die-cut the window for my card front.   I stamped the snow image with my versa mark ink and heat-embossed it with my white embossing powder.  I inked up the background with my broken china distress ink with my blending tool to make the snow pop.  I used an embossing folder to dry-embossed the birch trees on my card front.

I stamped my images in with my stamping platform tool (this is also a must-have for stampers) and colored the images in with my Copic markers.  I die cut the images with the coordinating dies, and adhered it to my colored background.

I die-cut the Double-sided foam adhesive and the acetate sheets with the Snow Globe shaker die.  I adhered the acetate sheet and the card stock to my small window.  I used some iridescent glitter as my shaker elements to create the look of snow.  I finished the design of the card with my peppermint baker’s twine and added the little star label with the sentiment.  I wanted the focal point to be all about my skater snow globe.  Here’s the card:

NNDLetitSnow

For my second card, I used the rest of the images that I colored and adhered them to my tag to create my scene.  To finish my design, I added the Red Berry Nuvo Crystal drops to one of the small reindeers.

I love, love, love this stamp set.   You can create so many different scenes using this stamp set for your cards, scrapbook layouts or Christmas gift tags.  The possibilities are endless!  Here’s my second card:

Newton’s Nook Designs Dreaming of a Pink Christmas

This is my second blog post for today.  I am up on the Newton’s Nook Designs blog with this Christmas card, showcasing the Festive Flamingos stamp set, Land Border Dies and the Pines and Holly Die Set.   I wanted to give you a little preview of what’s to come this month on Newton’s Nook.  You will absolutely love the new stamp sets coming out next week.  Please stay tuned.

 

I started out by stamping my images on Neenah Solar White card stock and colored the images in with my Comic markers.  I fuzzy-cut the images with my precision cut scissors. I also die-cut the other elements that I needed for the card.    This is a fairly simple card but I love how it turned out.  Here it is:
