Pin It

HELLO!!

It's a FUN & INSPIRATIONAL 25 Days with a NEW Project shared Daily!! 
You can find the Schedule Below!! 
Here's my project for today!!
I just had to create a Festive Cup of Peppermint Mocha Latte with a FULL Dollop of Cream!! YES PLEASE!! So YUMMY with Peppermint Sprinkles!! I used the Keep Calm and Drink Coffee Sweet Cuts to Die Cut my Cup from some Patterned Paper!! Then I Stamped and Embossed the "SWEET" Sentiment for a play on a Rea Runn Cup from the NEW Blessed Stamp Set!! Then for the Dollop of Cream I used the Frosting Image from the Cupcakes and Sprinkles Stamp Set and Die Cut it out using the coordinating Cupcakes and Sprinkles Die Set!! I Colored it with Copic Markers to match the Coffee Cup and make it alittle more Festive!! Then added some Morning Dew Nuvo Drops to the Sprinkles for some Dimension and Shine!! 
I wanted to add a SWEET Gingerbread Cookie and some Holly to add to the Holiday Feel and Stamped and Fussy Cut the Images from the Happy Holidays Planner Series Stamp Set!! I used Copic Markers to Color them in and added some Morning Dew Nuvo Drops to the Berries and the Bow and some White Gel Pens to finish off the Images!! I added the images to a For You Stitched Tag Die Cut and then adhered it to a Stenciled Panel and a Patterned Paper Cardbase that I put together ans I LOVE the way it turned out!! To finish off the design I used some Watermelon Seam Binding Ribbon, the Holly Leaves from the Meet Me Under the Mistletoe Sweet Cut Die Set Die Cut from some TE Avocado Felt and added a Red-n-White Twine Bow that I added a Mini Red Jingle Bell to using a Bling Zots Glue Dot!! I'm pretty sure this would make ANYONE SMILE this Holiday Season!!

Pin It
HELLO CRAFTY FRIENDS!! 

Larissa here today to share a SUPER FUN Holiday Tag!! 
I have several Nieces and they ALL LOVE anything Rainbow so I thought it would be FUN to create some Rainbow Gift Tags!! I'm pretty sure these would make anyone on your Gift giving list SMILE in delight!!
I Started by Die Cutting my Tag by using the Tag Buddies Fri-Die Set and then I Stamped and Embossed the SWEET Angel from the NEW Angels Hugs Stamp Set with WoW White Embossing Powder!! Then I created a Mask in order to mask the Embossed Angel Image so I could Ink the Rainbow Background!! I used Distress Inks in Candied AppleCarved PumpkinMustard SeedPeeled PaintPeacock Feathers and Wilted Violet using Ink Daubers!! I then removed the Mask and used Copic Markers to Color in the Angel Image!! 
                          (Skin: E00, E11 & E13  Cheeks: RV11  Hair: E31, E33 & E37)
To finish off the Tag I added Glossy Accents to the Angel Wings, some White Gel Pen Freckles and some Pretty Pink Posh Gold Jewels to the center of several of the Flowers on the Robes!! I added the Tag to a White Shimmer Cardstock Pillow Box and added a FUN Rainbow Scrap Ribbon Bow!! It finishes off the Gift PERFECTLY and I just KNOW they are going to LOVE these this Holiday Season!!

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!!
