Happy Monday! 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 Holiday Heights along with the coordinating Dies, and 2 Paper Pads, Christmas Time and Canine Christmas, and the Christmas Tree Line Stencil Set! Here’s how I was inspired!
I’ve recently been enjoying making CAS cards, while sneaking in shakers here and there! So stay tuned as I have a ton of cards to share with y’all this week!
For my first card today, I created a simple card using some pattern paper from the Christmas Time Paper Pad. I die cut it using a cover die, and cut it again using some coordinating plain card stock. I paper pieced it back together in the front of an A2 card base. I finished off the card by stamping a sentiment from the Heartfelt Holidays on to a banner die cut from the Frames & Flags Die Set. Before adhering it to the card I inked it up lightly using Pine Needles Distress Oxide Ink to add a little dimension.
For my second card, I used the Christmas Tree Line Stencil Set. It’s the perfect layered stencil to mass produce cards, as it has the perfect details to make a card look fancy without much work!
To create this card, I started by masking off the bottom half of the card, and covering the rest of it with Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide ink. Next I inked up the first layer of the stencil (the trees) with Pine Needle and Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide ink. I inked up the second layer (stars and trunks) using Scattered Straw and Walnut Stain Distress Oxide ink. For the last layer, I used Nuvo Crystal Drops! Yes, Nuvo drops! Try it! Just remember to wash your stencil ASAP!
After the nuvo drops dried, I stamped sentiment from the Snow Much Cheer to finish off my card.
For my third and last card today, I used one of the images from the Holiday Heights stamp set! This set as it’s own coordinating dies, and it works with the previously released Bookmark Die Set. To create this card, I started with stamping the image, colored it with copic markers, and cut it out using the coordinating die.
To create the shaker/sentiment part of the card, I die cut the word “MERRY” using letter die cuts, backed it with acetate, filled it with gold sequins and closed it up using a second sheet of acetate. I ink blended the front of the card base using distress oxide inks in Barn Door and Pine Needles to show through the shaker letters. I finished off the card by stamping “Christmas!” from the Heartfelt Holidays stamp set, by masking off the “merry” part and adhering the colored image to the front of the card.
