Newton's Nook Designs October Release ~ The Nutcracker Squeak & Caroling Newton!! =)

Pin It
Hello!!
          SQUEAL!!
         I'm here with Day 2 of the 
.                            Today we're showcasing the NEW  
"The Nutcracker SqueakStamp Set and "Caroling NewtonStamp Set + coordinating Dies!!!!
                  Let's take a look at the AWESOME New Products!!
 For my first Card I KNEW I wanted to create a Waterfall Card Design!! So I decided to build a Stage for the Background of my Card and then my Waterfall would be a Production of the Nutcracker Ballet of sorts!! I used some Lawn Fawn Dies and Patterned Paper to create my Stage Curtains!! Its SO FUN and I think it would make ANYONE SMILE!! Even if they aren't familiar with the Nutcracker Ballet/Story!!?? I used the Mama Elephant Waterfall Die as the base for my Interactive Waterfall mechanism, altering it some to fit my Images and my Card Design!!
I LOVE the way it turned out!!


I Stamped and Embossed ALL of the Images onto the Waterfall Panels that I cut from Distress Watercolor Paper!! Then I Stamped the Image onto masking Paper and created Masks for all of the Images!! I covered the Images with the Masks and used Distress Inks in Scattered Straw and Gathered Twigs to ink around the Images!! I wanted it to look as though they were on the stage!! I Colored all of the Images in using Copic Markers and stuck to the same colors to make it feel like part of the Production!! Then I added details to all of the Images using a White and Black Gel Pen and using Tonic Studios Shimmer Pen and Nuvo Drops in both Morning Dew and Glitter!!


For my second Card I wanted to create a Scene for the Caroling Newtons Image!! So I started by Embossing the Brick Embossing Folder by Taylored Expressions and then inked it lightly using some Antique Linen Distress Ink!! I Die Cut 2 of the Tall Trees from the New Forest Scene Builder Dies that was showcased yesterday and Inked them using Peeled Paint, Lucky Clover and Gathered Twigs Distress Inks!! Then I sprayed them with some of my FAVORITE Therm O Web Iridescent Glitter Dust Spray!! It makes it appear to be lite up by Lights and in real life is SO PRETTY!! I added some Star Sequins for the Top of the Trees!! The Door is a Die Cut from Mama Elephant and I inked just the Door with Gathered Twigs and Dark Espresso Distress Inks!! I used a N0 Copic Marker to add some Color to the Door Trim!! Then I Stamped and Embossed the Sentiment onto the Door using some WoW Embossing Glitter Embossing Powder in Gold and Red, using my FAVORITE Purple Tape to mask the Sentiment into parts for Stamping with Versa Mark and then coating with the Embossing Powder and Heat Setting!! It takes alittle more time, but I think you'll agree by the results that it WORTH the extra time!!?? I colored my Images with copic Markers and added some Texture and dimension with a White and Black Gel Pen and some Tonic Studios Shimmer Pen and Nuvo Drops in Glitter
