Newton's Nook Designs Holiday Release | Day 4

Welcome to the 4th and final day of the Newton's Nook Designs Holiday Release! Today we have two more stamp sets to share with you and I think we might have saved some of the cutest for last! And as always, we have a stamp set featuring Newton that is just purrfect for the holidays!



Merry Christmouse Christmas Card | Naughty or Mice Stamp Set


I had so much fun creating the Merry Christmouse card using the new Naughty or Mice Stamp Set. I began by stamping and coloring all of the adorable mice with my Chameleon Pens. I then cut them out using the coordinating dies. To create the card front, I used fun window die and filled in each of the sections of one of the mice and popped them up with some double sided foam adhesive.

The snowflakes in the background are from the new Shaker Globe Die Set. I adhered white cardstock to Therm O Web Easy Cut Adhesive Sheet and then die cut the snowflakes. I then peeled off the liner and sprinkled the adhesive with glitter. I then used iCraft Mixed Media Liquid Adhesive to adhere them to the card front.

Santa Paws Christmas Card | Santa Paw Newton Stamp Set


The final stamp set for this release features the always adorable Newton as Santa Paws! I stamped and colored the various images with my Chameleon Pens and die cut them using the coordinating dies. I then layered this onto a tag die cut and adhered it to the card front.

For a final touch of  holiday cheer, I tied on a bow made from red and white baker's twine.

Sugar Pea Designs Holiday Release | Day 4

Hello friends and welcome to Day 4 of the Sugar Pea Designs Holiday Release! Today the festive cheer continues with an adorable new set perfect for all the coffee, cocoa and donut lovers out there!

Warm Holiday Wishes Christmas Card | Mugs and Kisses Stamp Set


I'm a coffee lover, so when I saw this set, I was immediately in love with it! I began by stamping and coloring the coffee mug and several donuts with my Chameleon Markers to create a scene of sweet treats for Santa. After all the coloring was complete, I die cut the image using the coordinating dies.

To give the donuts a more Christmasy feel, I colored the sprinkles red, white and green using Sakura Glaze Pens. I then stamped the sentiment onto a banner die cut and adhered it to the card.

Reindeer Christmas Card | Reindeer Roll Call Stamp Set


I just love the word art image in this first set called Reindeer Roll Call. It is full of whimsy and perfect as the focal point on a card. I stamped it onto a banner die cut with brown ink and then distressed the edges a bit. I then finished off the banner with some red enamel dots.

To further embellish the card I used the Newton's Nook Designs Pine and Holly Die Set and cut out the various shapes from colored cardstock. I then distressed them with some Distress Ink and layered them on top of and under the banner strip.

The background on the right hand side was created using the new Holiday Foliage Stencil and a mix of Distress Inks.

Very Merry Christmas Card | Stylish Stockings Stamp Set


This next card was created using the new Stylish Stockings Stamp Set and I just love the how you can stamp and die cut the different pieces to create a fun layered card design. I stamped three of the stocking images and then die cut them using the coordinating stocking die.

 I then die cut the tops, heels and toes from glittered foam and adhered them to the stamped images. I love the dimension and shimmer the glittered foam adds AND the no mess glitter as well!

Sugar Pea Designs Holiday Release | Day 3

Welcome to Day 3 of the Sugar Pea Designs Holiday Product Release! Today there is not one, but two new stamp sets being featured. I'm sharing one of them below, but make sure you head over to the Sugar Pea Designs Blog to check out the other set and hop along for your chance to win one of the new stamp sets.

Season's Greeting's Wreath Christmas Card | Pine Cone Greetings Stamp Set


The new stamp and die set called Pine Cone Greetings is sure to become a new favorite if you enjoy stamping, die cutting and creating your own little work of art. To create the wreath on my card, I began by cutting a 3.5 inch circle from white cardstock. I used this as the base for assembling my wreath. I then stamped 4 of one of the large branches, 4 of the medium branches and 6 of each of the small branches. I stamped half of these in one color of green ink and the other half in a slightly darker green ink.

Next, I went about die cutting all of the branches using the coordinating die and adhered them around the outside edge of the die cut circle using temporary adhesive until I was certain about their placement. I then stamped and die cut the medium and small pine cones and added them to the wreath. The final touch was the addition of the small red pearls to which look like little red berries!

Here you can see some of the layering of the die cut branches and pinecones. The sentiment was stamped onto red cardstock with Versamark Embossing Ink and then heat embossed with white embossing powder.
