Newton's Nook Designs Holiday Release | Day 2

Hello friends and welcome to Day 2 of Newton's Nook Designs Holiday Release! Today we are revealing 2 new stamp sets called Nutcracker Squeak and Caroling Newton.

Meow To The World Card | Caroling Newton


For my first card today, I'm sharing what I created using the adorable Caroling Newton stamp set. This adorable trio of cats are caroling away and are blissfully unaware of the little mouse that has joined them!

To create the background, I first inked up the new Evergreen Stencil with Distress Ink in Peeled Paint and Mowed Lawn. I then placed the new Petite Snow Stencil on top of this and added Texture Paste. I love the bit of dimension and texture that this adds to the background design. I created a snow covered ground using the stitched hill from the Land Borders Die Set. I then stamped, colored and then die cut the caroling kitties and mouse and adhered them using double sided foam adhesive. To complete the card, I stamped the sentiment onto the snowy base.

Visions Of Sugarplums Card | Nutcracker Squeak

My second card today uses the Nutcracker Squeak stamp set. I stamped, colored and die cut all of the characters before I really had an idea of what I was going to do for this card. I just loved the cute little mice so much, I only knew that I wanted to try to use all of them on my card!

After playing around with their placement for a bit, I finally came up with this layout. The addition of the candy was inspired by the sentiment I choose to use and they are from the Newton's Candy Cane Stamp Set.

To create the background, I inked up the new Music Stencil with a light gray ink. I then adhered all of the images using double sided foam adhesive for a touch of dimension.
