Newton's Nook Designs November Release Day 2

After you check out the inspiration I have to share with you today, continue reading to get all the details on today's blog hop and giveaway.

Joy Christmas Card | Winter Birds Stamp Set

First up, I'm sharing a card using the new Winter Birds Stamp Set. Actually this card uses, both new sets. I couldn't resist combining them!

I first stamped the images and then colored them with Copic Markers. Then, I die cut them using the coordinating dies. Next, came the part of piecing and layering all the parts to create the design. Once I got them how I wanted them, I placed a piece of Therm O Web Purple Tape over them to hold them in place. Then I flipped them over and adhered double sided foam tape to the back of the flowers and some of the leaves to give the piece a bit of dimension.

To create the background, I used the new Plaid Stencil. I love these new layering stencils and I can't wait to keep playing with them. I inked each layer using Distress Ink in Fired Red Brick and Peeled Paint. To center the stencil on the paper I started with a slightly larger than normal card front. Once I had the design inked up, I trimmed it to size so the design would be centered on the card front. I love that the stencil was designed to allow you to create a larger design by simply sliding it over a little as you finish inking each section.

Merry Christmas Card | Poinsettia Blooms

For this second card, I used the Poinsettia Blooms stamp set again and combined it with the Sentiments of the Season stamp set. I stamped and colored the images with Copic Markers and die cut them using the coordinating dies.

To add a bit of texture, I used the stitched rounded rectangle die from the Frames and Flags Die Set to emboss a frame in to the center of a piece of white cardstock trimmed to 4 x 5.25 inches. Embossing with a die is super easy, however the plates and layers you need to do it vary with each die cutting machine. I recommend referring to your machines instruction manual for details on how to do this.

Once the embossing was complete, I stamped the sentiment in the center and embossed it with gold embossing powder. I then finished off the card by adhering the poinsettias to the corners with double sided foam adhesive.
