Keep Warm Card by Larissa Heskett | A Cozy Day In stamp set by  Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #TayloredExpressions #Watercolor #DistressInk #RangerInk

Keep Warm and Snuggle Up!!


Is it cold where you live today?? We got Snow and it's about -7 outside!! BRRRRRRR!!  I'm up on the Newton's Nook Designs Blog today So I decided made this card perfect for a Cold Winter Day!! I started by using the image of the girl and cats snuggled up and reading from the Cozy Day In Stamp Set!! The sentiment "Keep Warm and Snuggle Up" is from the Fireside Friends Stamp Set!!
I wanted a COZY looking background so I used the AWESOME Taylored Expressions Basketweave Cutting Plate Die to create a "Woven Blanket" from some Watercolor Paper because I wanted to alternate the Front and Back Sideof the Paper for some Noticeable Texture!! I LOVE the way it turned out!! =) Then I layered it onto a Stitched Panel Card Base just to Finish off the Edge!! I Stamped and Embossed my Images onto Distress Watercolor Paper and then Watercolored the Image using my Distress Markers!! I went with Vibrant Jewel Toned Colors and I LOVE the way it POPS off the Card!! I Stamped and Embossed the Sentiment onto a Strip of Watercolor Paper and added it to the Left hand side of the Image!!  Some Stamped and Embossed Hearts were added to the Top of the Image to help make your eye go right for the Image!! SQUEAL!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE this Image and the way the Card came together!! I hope you'll feel INSPIRED to SNUGGLE UP and Read a Good Book or to CREATE this Weekend using some of your FAVORITE Newton's Nook Designs Products!!?? If you do I HOPE you'll SHARE then with us on Social Media as we LOVE to see what you're creating and you NEVER KNOW when you could be Showcased and Shared on the NND Blog!!  =)
I'm also playing along with SEVEAL Challenges!!
