For my first card below, I am showcasing the Stylish Stockings stamp set and dies.  I love this set so much.  You can create so many cute Christmas cards and gift tags using this set.  Here’s what it looks like:

I stamped my images with different stamp inks on Neenah smooth white card stock and die-cut them with the coordinating dies.  I die-cut the window frame and cut my plaid patterned paper to assemble my card.  To finish the design, I added the sentiment using the Sentiments of the Season stamp set (revealed on the first day) and added the holly and red berries.  Here’s the card:

Here’s another simple card with the Stylish Stockings and Sentiments of the Season:

For my third card, I am showcasing the Reindeer Roll Call Stamp set, and the Acetate Sheets and the Double-Sided Adhesive Foam Sheets by Newton’s Nook.  These double-sided adhesive fun foam is a must-have.  They are super sticky and very sturdy!  You are absolutely going to love this for your shaker cards.

I started out by coloring my card stock with my distress oxide inks (picked raspberry, wilted violet and broken china) with my blending tools.  I sprayed water on the colored card stock with my distress sprayer and dabbed it with a dry paper towel.  I die-cut this piece using a tag die from my collection.   I added the acetate sheet and double-sided adhesive foam to my card front.  I finished the design by adding a red ribbon, the jingle bells and the reindeers from the stamp set.  This card is so simple but so much fun.  Here’s the card:

Newton’s Nook Designs March Release ~ Winston Takes Flight and Sky Borders Die

nnd_17march_releaseicon

Hello stampers and crafters! Today is the first day of the March release at Newton’s Nook Designs.   You also have a chance to win each stamp set during release week so check out the details I have indicated at the end of this blog post. [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 today’s post, I have created a special see-through card, showcasing the Winston Takes Flight stamp set and its coordinating dies, with the new Sky Borders Die set.

 

 

NND_17MARCH_WinstonTakesFlight-1

I started out by stamping my images on Neenah solar white card stock, and colored Winston with my Copic markers.  I die-cut the images with its coordinating dies.

 

To create more stability to my card, I used a heavier weight white card stock to die cut my clouds three times. I also die-cut a piece of acetate measuring 4 1/4 X 5 1/2.

 

I cut the front panel of my card base, leaving about ¾ inch. Opening the card, I adhered my acetate sheet, making sure that the card is a standard A2 size. I followed this step with adhering the other cloud borders die on the front lower portion of the acetate.   Since this is a see-through card, I wanted to cover the adhesive behind, by layering another clouds border die-cut. This also gave it some dimension. Using my Xyron Mega Tape Runner, I adhered my stamped image on the front panel, as well as the banner sentiment. To cover the adhesive at the back if the stamped images, I die-cut the same pieces with some white card stock and adhered it on the back.

To finish off my design, I added the cute sun die-cut, and stamped the small cloud images from the set on the inside of my card, adding some pink hearts.  Here’s the card:

I hope you like my card and got inspired today. This design can be easily mass-produced.
