Newton's Nook Designs Holiday Release | Day 1

Hello Friends and welcome to Day 1 of the Newton's Nook Designs Holiday Release! I'm going to warn you now that you're going to be in for some major cuteness overload with this release. Each and every set is perfect for creating cards for the upcoming Christmas and holiday season. So grab a cup of something warm and yummy and settle in for some amazing inspiration from the Design Team and of course for your chance to win one of the new stamp sets from this release.


Merry Christmas Card | All Aboard For Christmas Stamp Set

Seriously, does it get any cuter than Santa driving a train with cars full of toys, as well as Newton and all of his friends?! I began by stamping the images onto white cardstock. I then colored them with my Chameleon Markers and die cut them using the coordinating All Aboard For Christmas Die Set.

I then went about creating a little scene with the train and cars across the front of the card. To give it all a bit more dimension I used some double sided foam adhesive to pop up each of the elements.

Merry Christmas Card | Sentiments of the Season Stamp Set 


The next set we are featuring is the Sentiments of the Season Stamp Set. I combined this set with one of the new Snowfall stencil being released this month as well. I began by stamping the sentiment with Versamark Embossing Ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder.

To create the snowflake background, I placed the Snowfall stencil over a piece of cardstock. I then inked up the stencil with a Versamark Embossing Ink Pad. Yes, I stamped the pad directly onto the stencil and the ink filled in the openings. I then removed the stencil and poured white embossing powder over the piece of cardstock and heat embossed. I then applied a mix of Distress Oxide Inks in Salty Ocean, Faded Jeans and Broken China to make the snowflakes pop and create a wintery scene.

Along with some greet greetings for the outside of your Christmas cards, this set also comes with some that would work for the inside of your cards as well. I especially love this one and I know I'll be using this holiday season!
