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 Haul and Wreath Pups along with their coordinating Dies! Here’s how I was inspired!
I didn’t get to using the Canine Christmas Paper pad on Day 1 of sneak peaks, so I pulled it out for today’s card! I also used my favorite technique of dry embossing with stencils to add a little extra dimension to the cards.
For my first card, I started by die cutting a piece of pattern paper to crate a gift card holder (you can also use a Cricut!) I also die cut a small rectangle to back my image, to help it pop on the pattern paper. I embossed it using the Petite Snow Stencil. Last die cut piece was a banner using the Banner Trio Die Set, cut from black cardstock, onto which I stamped and heat embossed a sentiment from the Holiday Heights stamp set.
To finish off the card, I stamped, colored and die cut the image from the Wreath Pups stamp set using copic markers (shown above) and die cut it using the coordinating die before adhering it to the card.
For my second card, I couldn’t help but make a little red truck! Maybe next time it’ll be the little blue truck!
To create this card, I started my stamping and coloring the image from the Holiday Haul stamp set using copic markers and die cut it using the coordinating die.
To finish off the card, I started by embossing the card front using the Holiday Foliage Stencil, the next layer is a plaid pattern paper from the Christmas Time Paper Pad die cut using a frame die from the Frames & Flags Die Set. Last ‘layer’ is the sentiment, from the same Holiday Haul stamp set, stamped on to a banner die cut from the Frames & Flags Die Set. After stamping the sentiment, I ink blended over it to add some dimension and tucked it behind the colored image.
