Happy Thursday! It’s the last day of reveal week over at Newton’s Nook Designs and its been so exciting to share a ton of inspiration with y’all 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 Prehistoric Christmas & Christmas Pheasant + Coordinating Dies, Heartfelt Holidays stamp sets! Here’s how I was inspired!
Reveal week if definitely ending with a bang as I have 3 cards to share with y’all today!
To create this card, I started by stamping and coloring the image using copic markers. Then I die cut it with the largest scallop heart from the Heart Frame Die Set (the Heartfelt Holidays stamp set, along with ALL the Heartfelt stamps, work with the Heart Frame Die Set and the Banner Trio Die Set.)
To finish off the card, I added the die cut heart to an A2 piece of pattern paper from the NEW Meowy Christmas Paper Pad. I created the sentiment using the word “merry” from the Snow Globe Shaker Die Set cut from golden card stock and trimmed the “merry Christmas” from the Heartfelt Holidays stamp set. I felt like the word die cut was fading into the colored image, so I backed it with a smaller heart die cut from vellum. Lastly, I added some jewels!
For my second card, I started by stamping and coloring two of the dinosaurs from the Prehistoric Christmas stamp set, and die cutting them with the coordinating dies.
To create the scene, I started by die cutting two hills, using a sheet of pattern paper from the Meowy Christmas Paper Pad. Next I inked up the card bases using the Snowfall Stencil with some light blue ink. layered the hills and dinosaurs onto the card front, stamped a sentiment from the same stamp set and finished off the card with some snow flake shaped sequins.
For my last card of the reveal, I made a CAS-ish card using the mini Christmas Pheasant stamp set. I started by coloring and die cutting the little pheasant. Next, I embossed a card front using the Holiday Foliage Stencil.
To finish of the card, I die cut multiple banners using the Frames & Flags Die Set and Banner Trio Die Set, from white card stock for the sentiment and the pattern paper pad, Meowy Christmas Paper Pad. I layered them on to the embossed card front, and added the Pheasant image!
