Not A Creature Was Stirring…..

Hello Newton’s Nook fans! I’m back today to share with you this cute “cheesy” Christmas card, showcasing the Naughty & Mice stamp set and coordinating dies, along with the Banner Trio die setPines & Holly die set and Circle Frames die set.

To make my card, I die-cut an A2 size panel of some yellow card stock and used one of the circle die from the Circle Frames die set to die-cut a few holes.  I wanted this piece to look like “cheese”.  I inked up this panel with some Fossilized Amber distress oxide ink to create some shadows for added texture.  I foam-mounted this piece on an A-2 size card base for added dimension and my scissors to cut-off the excess.

Next, I stamped the mice on some Neenah solar white card stock and colored them in my alcohol markers.  I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.  I die-cut the pine boughs using the Pines & Holly die set and adhered on the card with liquid glue.

I added the mice with foam adhesive and finished my design by adding the sentiment strip that was die-cut using the Banner Trio die set.  Easy Peasy!  Here’s another look:

I hope you like my card today.  The supplies I use are listed and linked below.  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have an amazing day!

25 Days of Christmas Tags

Hello my crafty peeps!  Today, the Newton’s Nook Design Team is joining Tracey McNeely of  www.inmycreativeopinion.blogspot.ca for the 25 Days of Christmas Tags.  You will find lots of inspiration from the team and there is also a GIVEAWAY!  Please go to Tracy’s blog post for all the details about the prizes and the giveaway!

For my tags below, I am showcasing the Winter Birds stamp set and coordinating dies along with the Holiday Greetings Die set and  Pines & Holly die set.

 

To make the tags, I started by stamping my images on some Neenah solar white card stock and colored the images in with alcohol markers.  I used the coordinating dies to die-cut the images.

Next, I die-cut the wood slices and the tags using some dies from my collection and the pine boughs using the Pines & Holly die set.  I adhered the wood slices, berries and the pine boughs for added texture and interest.   The birds were foam-mounted on the tags for added dimension.

I finished my design by adding the silk ribbon, twine and jingle bells then adhered the “be merry” die-cut sentiment using the Holiday Greetings die set.   Here’s another look:

I hope you like my tags today.  The supplies I use are listed and linked below.  Please visit Tracey McNeely’s blog post –www.inmycreativeopinion.blogspot.ca to find out more info about the giveaway and to check out the other tags created by the design team.  Have an amazing day and happy stamping!
