7th Annual Deck the Halls with Inky Paws Blog Hop!!

Pin It
Hello!!
Welcome to the 7th Annual Deck the Halls with Inky Paws Blog Hop for Newton's Nook Designs!! I'm SO EXCITED to be here with you today to share some AMAZING Inspiration for the FAST approaching Holidays!! I still can't believe December is already here, where did the Year go!!?? I'm sure if you are hopping along today, you're like me and ENJOY making the Holidays SPECIAL for those you CHERISH!! That's why creating handmade Cards and Gifts are so important!! Today I have a STUNNING Scene Card to share, plus a BONUS Card created by Greyson my 6 yr. old for his FAVORITE 1st Grade Teacher Mrs. Peterson!! I LOVE getting him involved with his Teacher Gifts every year and I'm not sure who ENJOYS it more!!?? I can promise you though his Teacher will feel pretty SPECIAL when he gives her his handmade Card/Gift in a couple Weeks!! 
Let's get started!! 
I wanted to create a STUNNING Scene Card!! I've ALWAYS LOVED Cardinals, but especially during the Holidays!! I started by using some Therm O Web Deco Foil Gel and the NND Holiday Foliage Stencil on my Cardbase!! After the Gel was dry, I Inked the background with Distress Oxide Inks in Iced Spruce, Peeled Paint and Lucky Clover!! Water Droplets were added for some texture!! Then I Foiled it using some Deco Foil in Jade!! I then added some Distress Paint Splatters in Picket Fence, Brass and Lucky Clover!! 
Next I worked on my Scene!! I started by Die Cutting the Stitched Panel from the NND Frames & Flags Die Set!! I then Stamped and Embossed the Cardinal Image and the Berry Images from the Winter Birds Stamp Set!! I colored them using Copic Markers and the Die Cut them out using the coordinating Winter Birds Die Set!! 

I used the Forest Scene Builder Die Set to create the Branches Die Cutting them from some TE Toffee Cardstock!! I inked the edges using some Gathered Twigs Distress Oxide Ink!! I wanted the look of Snow so I used the Lawn Fawn Embossing Pen and added some WoW Embossing Powder in Vintage Champagne!! It's a White Embossing Powder with Gold Glitter and I LOVE the addition of the Gold Glitter in real life!! I Die Cut several of the Pine Cone Images from the NND Pines & Holly Die Set from some TE Chocolate Truffle Cardstock and adhered them to some TE Toffee Cardstock!! Then fussy cut them out and inked them with some Gathered Twigs DOI!! I added the same Embossing Powder to resemble Snow, and also added some Liquid Adhesive and some Rock Candy Distress Glitter for some Sparkle and Texture!! 
I Die Cut several of the Pines also from the NND Pines & Holly Die Set from some TE Cilantro Cardstock and inked it them using Distress Oxide Inks in Gathered Twigs, Pine Needles and Peeled Paint!! I added the same Embossing Powder and then adhered everything together to create my Scene!! I really LOVE the way it turned out and I hope I've inspired you to look through your stash and see what Images you can combine with some of your FAVORITE Scene Building Dies to create some STUNNING Winter Scenes!!
Here's Greyson's Card!! He LOVES Rainbow and Colored the SWEET Mice from the NND Naughty or Mice Stamp Set using Copic Markers!! Then we worked on the Background!! He wanted Rainbow Snowflakes!! So we used the NND Snowfall Stencil along with some Therm O Web Pixie Spray to keep it in place!! He used Distress Inks in Candied Apple, Carved Pumpkin, Mustard Seed, Peeled Paint, Faded Jeans and Dusty Concord along with an Ink Dauber!! We added some WoW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder over the Snowflakes and heat set!! Then we covered the background with Tumbled Glass and Faded Jeans Distress Oxide Inks, added some Water Droplets and then added some Snowflake Sequins, Iridescent Jewels and Blizzard Glitter Nuvo Drops to finish off the Background!! 
I helped him line up the coordinating NND Naughty or Mice Dies and we used Therm O Web Purple Tape to keep them in place!! After Die Cutting them out we added some White & Black Gel Pen for some Freckles and the Nose and I added some High Lights to the Images!! We also added some Morning Dew and Blizzard Glitter Nuvo Drops for some Sparkle and Dimension!! 
We used the NND Speech Bubbles Die to Stamp and Emboss the Sentiment with WoW White Embossing Powder and added it to the Card using 3D Foam Squares!! I'm pretty certain his Teacher is going to CHERISH this handmade Card for years to come!!

SQUEAL!!
         I'm here with Day 4 of the Newton's Nook Designs November Release!! 
       Today we're showcasing the NEW  
Frosty Folks Stamp Set + coordinating "Frosty FolksDies!! 
Let's take a look at the AWESOME New Set!!
We're all a bit Flaky by Larissa Heskett for Newton's Nook Designs using Frosty Folks, Frames and Flags and Snowfall Stencil #newtonsnook #newtonsnookdesigns #frostyfolks #snowfallstencil #snowmenfamily
 SWOON!! This Stamp Set has my HEART!! I LOVE Snowmen and this Image couldn't be any more PERFECT!! I definitely wanted the Image to be the Focal so I Started by Stamping and Embossing the Image!! I used Copic Markers to Color in the Image!! 
I used (Snowmen & White on Hats: No, N2 & 0   Cheeks: R00 Carrot Noses: YR00 & YR68  Top Hat: N2, N4 & N8  R43, R46 & R89  Red: R43, R46 & R89  Green: G00, G05 & G09  Turquoise: BG10, BG45 & BG49  Pink: RV00, RV11 & RV34)   
I used the NEW coordinating "Frosty Folks" Die to Die Cut the Image out and then I added some finishing details!! White Gel Pen for Highlights, Black Glaze Pen to the Buttons and Eyes, Nuvo Drops in Morning Dew to the Carrot Noses and Red Brim on the Top Hat and Nuvo Glitter Drops in Blizzard to the Stocking Hat Brims and Pom-Poms!! I used a Nuvo Shimmer Pen to add Glitter to the Scarves and Hats and I just LOVE all of the touches of Sparkle and Shine!! I think it just really finishes off that WINTER Feeling!! 
We're all a bit Flaky by Larissa Heskett for Newton's Nook Designs using Frosty Folks, Frames and Flags and Snowfall Stencil #newtonsnook #newtonsnookdesigns #frostyfolks #snowfallstencil #snowmenfamily
I Die Cut the Rectangle Panel from the NND Frames and Flags Die Set and knew I wanted to add some Snowflakes!! I sprayed the back of my NND Snowfall Stencil with some Therm O Web Pixie Spray and then adhered it onto my Panel!! I taped off the edges of the panel in order to keep them white with Purple Tape and then I used Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink along with some Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Ink to get a Light Turquoise Color to match my Images!! I LOVE the way the Distress Oxide Inks Blend!! I then removed the Stencil and blended over the Snowflakes to help blend them into the background alitte!! I think the Soft Design really shines behind the Image!! I Stamped and Embossed the Sentiment using both WoW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder and some WoW Rockin' Red Glitter Embossing Powder!! The Iridescent Glitter in the Embossing Powder goes really well with the Iridescent Glitter in the Blizzard Nuvo Drops!! Then I added a Few of the Snowflake Images from the Set and Embossed them with some WoW White Embossing Powder!! Iridescent Pretty Pink Posh Jewels were added to finish off the center of the Snowflakes!! Then I added it to a Patterned Paper Scalloped Frame that I die Cut also from the NND Frames and Flags Die Set!! I LOVE this and I'll be making SEVERAL more as this Image and the Sentiments is one of my NEW FAVORITES!!
