Newton's Nook Designs Holiday Release Day 2 ~ Newton’s Christmas Kittens, Purr-fect Present and Puppy Present!!

Pin It
Hello!!
SQUEAL!!
         I'm here with Day 4 of the Newton's Nook Designs Holiday Release!! 
       Today we're showcasing the NEW  
"Newton’s Christmas Kittens", "Purr-fect Present" and "Puppy Present" 
+ coordinating Dies!! 
Let's take a look at the AWESOME New Products!!
 For my first Card I wanted to create a CAS Design so that the Family of Kittens was the Focal!! I just LOVE this SWEET Image as it makes me SMILE!! I also think this Image could be used Year Round for Birthday Cards, Thank You Cards, Retirement Cards or even Welcome to the Neighborhood Cards just by changing out the Sentiment!! I Started by Stamping and Embossing the NEW "Newton’s Christmas Kittens" Image!! I used Copic Markers to color in the Image!! (Cats: E40, E42, E44, E47 & E49  Cheeks and Inside Ears: R00  Reds: R43, R46 & R89  Greens: YG61, YG63 & YG67  Whites: N0, N2 & N4)
I Stamped and Embossed the Sentiment onto the bottom of the Card and then Inked the Background with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink!! I added water Splatters to resemble Snow Falling!! Then I placed the Image onto the Card Panel using Therm O Web 3D Foam Squares!! I added some Hero Arts Sequins and added some Pretty Pink Posh Raspberry Jewels to the center of the Snowflakes for a POP of Color!! I added White Gel Pen Details and some Morning Dew Nuvo Drops to the Name Tags on the Collars!! I Die Cut the NND Framework Die Set from some Patterned Paper and adhered it to the Card Panel then adhered the Framed Panel to my A2 Card Base using Foam Tape for some Added Dimension!!  
For my Second Card I wanted to use the SWEET NEW "Purr-fect Present" Stamp Set Image for a FUN Interactive Shaker Snow Globe!! I LOVE Snow Globes especially during the Holidays!! These Images are the PUUR-FECT size for the NND Shaker Snow Globe Die Set!! I Colored the Image using Copic Markers (Same Colors as above) Then Die Cut the Image out!! I added White Gel Pen Details and some Shimmer Pen and Morning Dew Nuvo Drops to the Red Bow on the Present for some extra Sparkle and Shine and for some dimension!!  I Created the Snow Globe by Die Cutting the Top from White Cardstock!! I Inked the Frame with some Hickory Smoke Distress Ink and then Inked the Inside piece using some Tumbled Glass and Faded Jeans Distress Oxide Inks!! Water Splatters were added to resemble falling Snow!! I added the NND Acetate Sheets for the Window and then Die Cut the Frame again from some of the NND Double Side Foam Sheets!! Makes putting this Shaker Snow Globe together a breeze!! Especially if you're intimidated by Shaker Cards!! For the Base of the Snow Globe I wanted a Metallic finish so I Foiled a Piece of Therm O Web Toner Sheets with some Champagne Deco Foil and then Die Cut it out!! I Die Cut 3 more pieces from some TE Toffee Cardstock and adhered them all together for a thicker Base!! I wanted to add a Poinsettia so I Stamped and Embossed the Images form the NND "Poinsettia Blooms" Stamp Set!! I Die Cut them out using the coordinating "Poinsettia Blooms" Die Set and adhered them to the Shaker Snow Globe!! 
I used some Patterned Paper for the background and then Stamped and Embossed the Sentiment and used Copic Markers to color the Holly, I added Shimmer Pen and Morning Dew Nuvo Drops to the Berries!! I also added some Evergreen Bough Distress Oxide Ink to the Sentiment and behind the Snow Globe Image to make the Images POP!! I LOVE the way it turned out and think these would be SPECIAL to create for anyone this Holiday Season, but especially any of those Kiddos you may need Gifts for!! 
For my last Project I wanted to create a SWEET Gift Tag!! I LOVE being able to create personalized Gifts for the Holidays and this one is just the CUTEST!! I Started by Die Cutting the Tag from the NND Fancy Edges Tag Die Set!! I Stamped and Embossed the SWEET NEW "Puppy Present" Image and colored it in with Copic Markers!! (Same Colors as Above) Then Die Cut it out!! I Inked the Gift Tag with some Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink added some Water Splatters and then Stamped and Embossed the Sentiment!! 
I added some Shimmer Pen to the Hat and Bow and then added some Tonic Studios Morning Dew Nuvo Drops to the Hat Trim and the Bow on the Present to add some Shine and Dimension!! White Gel Pen details finish off the Design!! Then I added it to a Gift Bag I created using a Mama Elephant Gift Bag Die and added some Ribbon, Netting and Rusty Jingle Bells to Finish it all off!!

Newton's Nook Designs Holiday Release Day 3 ~ Main Street Christmas & Holiday Fringe!!

Pin It

Hello!!
SQUEAL!!
         I'm here with Day 3 of the Newton's Nook Designs Holiday Release!! 
       Today we're showcasing the NEW  
Main Street Christmas Stamp Set + "Holiday Finge" Stamp Set 
coordinating Die Sets!! 
Let's take a look at the AWESOME New Products!!
 For my first Card I've used the NEW "Main Street Christmas" Stamp Set and coordinating Die Set along with the NEW Light String Stencil!! SWOON!! This might just be my FAVORITE card of the Release!! I started by placing the Light String Stencil onto my Card Panel after I sprayed the back of the Stencil with some Therm O Web Pixie Spray!! Then I applied some Therm O Web Deco Foil Transfer Gel using my Stencil Pal and removed the Stencil and set the Panel aside to dry!! 
After the Gel was dry then I cut a Piece of Deco Foil in Black and ran it through my Laminating Machine Color side up and this is what you get!! SQUEAL!! I LOVE that these layered Stencils make this process of using more than one color to Foil SO MUCH Easier!! 
For the Second part I placed the #2 Stencil with the Light Bulbs already sprayed with the Therm O Web Pixie Spray on the back and placed it over the Top of the Foiled Strings lining it up with the etched design on the Stencil!! Then I applied more of the Deco Foil Transfer Gel with my Stencil Pal and sat it aside to Dry!! 
Once it was Dry I cut little pieces of Therm O Web and Gina K Designs Fancy Foils in Glimmering Gold, Sparkling Silver, Radiant Red, Glittering Green, Dazzling Orange and Brilliant Blue and adhered them over the Transfer Gel using tiny pieces of Purple Tape to hold them in place!! Then I ran it through my Laminating Machine and I just LOVE LOVE LOVE the results!! I then took some Distress Inks in Mustard Seed, Wilted Violet, Candied Apple, Peeled Paint, Carved Pumpkin and Blueprint Sketch and Inked around the Bulbs to make them appear as though they are GLOWING!! I then added some Water Splatters to make it look like Snowflakes were falling!! Then I adhered some Hero Arts Snowflakes Sequins and a few Pretty Pink Posh Silver Jewels to the centers!! For the sentiment I Stamped and Embossed onto Black Cardstock using WoW White Embossing Powder and then for the Die Cut "Joyful" I Die Cut 5 Words and stacked them together!! For the top layer I used my Distress Inks in the same colors to create a Rainbow then Die Cut the Word!! I added some Shimmer Pen to the top and finished it with a Layer of Morning Dew Nuvo Drops and I LOVE the way it turned out!! I adhered both to a Layered Circle Die that I inked with some Tumbled Glass Distress Ink!! Isn't it AWESOME!!?? I want to make MORE of these for ALL of the SPECIAL People in my my Life!! ESPECIALLY the ones who LOVE EVERYTHING Rainbow just like me!!   
For my Last Card I wanted to use my Zig Clear Color Real Brush Markers so I Stamped and Embossed the NEW "Holiday Fringe" Image onto some Bristol White Cardstock!! Then I used the Zig Markers along with the Zig Blender Marker to Watercolor the Image!! I LOVE the BRIGHT Colors you can achieve with the Zigs!! Its just BEAUTIFUL!! I used the NND Frames Squared Die Set to Die Cut the "Holiday Fringe" Panel!! I Stamped and Embossed the Sentiment in the center and used a White Gel Pen to Color in the MERRY then I also added some White Gel Pen Details just to make the Images POP!!
 I added some Shimmer Pen to ALL of the Red Colord Images and then I added some Morning Dew Nuvo Drops over the Red Bows, the Lights, The Candy Canes and the Tops of the Ornaments just to add some extra Shine and Dimension!! I layered the Panel with some Blue Cardstocks and added some Distress Ink to the edges to make it POP!! Then adhered it to the Scalloped Frame also from the NND Frames Squared Die Set in Black Cardstock!! I adhered it with Foam Tape to a Square White Cardbase and my Card and added a Few Pretty Pink Posh Iridescent Jewels and my Card was done!! I LOVE the way it turned out!!
