Happy Wednesday! It’s reveal week over at Newton’s Nook Designs and I’m so excited to share a ton of inspiration with you this week! It might not be the holiday season yet, but it sure looks like it’s here in my craft room! Today we are showcasing the Christmas Cocktails & Dairy Christmas along with their coordinating Dies! Here’s how I was inspired!
Both this sets challenged my creativity as they aren’t my “go to” images, not sure about the cocktails, but the animals and critters are slowly growing on me!
For my first card, I started by stamping and coloring the image from the Dairy Christmas stamp set and die cutting it with the coordinating die. Next I die cut a grass edge, along with a hill from a sheet of pattern paper from the Meowy Christmas Paper Pad.I also die cut a fence from white card and inked it up a bit using some brown ink. Lastly I die cut a banner from the Banner Trio Die Set and stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set on to in.
To assemble the card, I created a cloud background using blue card stock, the Petite Cloud Stencil and some texture paste. After it dried I added all the die cut elements along with the colored image using a combination of foam tape and liquid glue to add some dimension.
For my second card, I stamped, colored and die cut all the images from the Christmas Cocktails stamp set.
Next, I created the background for card, starting with stamping and embossing a sentiment in the center of an A2 card base. Then I inked up in a blue ombre and then using the Petite Snow Stencil along with white pigment ink. Once the ink dried, I shifted the stencil and added some glitter gel to the panel.
Once the glitter gel dried, I added all the cocktail images around the sentiment using foam tape.
