Newton’s Nook Deck The Halls With Inky Paws

Hello crafty friends! I am so thrilled to be the featured guest for Newton’s Nook Designs today!

For my cards today, I am featuring an adorable Holiday Foliage stencil along with the Snow Globe Scenes stamp set.
To create the card, I cut kraft card stock to 3″ x 4.5″ using rectangle panel die. I then placed the Holiday Foliage stencil over the kraft panel, and then applied the white embossing paste using palette knife. I added the clear glitter to the embossing paste while they’re still wet.
Before mounting the main panel, I stamped small Christmas images from the Snow Globe Scenes set on top-folded card base using Memento Desert Sand dye ink. I decorated the card base with red check ribbon & jingle bells, and then mounted the kraft panel using foam tape. For the sentiment, I used the Snow Globe Scenes stamp set.

For my second card, I used the Holiday Foliage stencil in a fun way. I tried to create a no-line watercoloured card with this stencil.
I used mini round ink blending tool to colour the images with Antique Linen Distress ink first.
I then coloured each inked image with several Distress inks and water brush: Festive Berries, Mowed Lawn, Evergreen Bough, Rusty Hinge, Crushed Olive, Vintage Photo.
Ta-Da! I am very pleased with the outcome!!

Be sure to check out the Newton’s Nook Blog this week for lots of fun holiday inspiration, and I’ll be back on Friday with another Christmas project for the Blog hop!

Flora & Fauna: Arctic Starry Night

Hello crafty friends! I want to share with you my Christmas cards today with so adorable Flora & Fauna Arctic Starry Night stamp set – it really caught my eye!

Here is what I came up with:
For my first card, I created a snowy night background with the Arctic Starry Night set. It is so lovely set!! I heat embossed (a kind of) constellations and trees onto watercolour paper panel in white first, and then coloured the background with Peerless watercolors. I added white ink splatters on it. Makes it look like snow or stars in the night sky.
I stamped & lightly watercoloured three polar bears, then fussy cut them. Once the background panel was completely dry, I mounted it on white card base using double sided tape first, and then added polar bears on it using foam tape.

For my second card, I made a simply watercolour card. I just repeatedly stamped trees on watercolour panel in black, and then roughly watercoloured each tree using Peerless watercolors.
Thank you so much for stopping by. Happy crafting!

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!

Neat and Tangled: Merry & Bright

Hello crafty friends, TGIF!
I am guest designing with Neat and Tangled this month. I am so happy to be a part of this amazing company once again!!

Today I want to share with you my fun Christmas card with so adorable Beary Merry Stamp Set and the Merry and Bright Nice and Neat Die.

Here is what I came up with:
I started by stamping cute polar bear and candy cane from the Beary Merry set on watercolour paper using VersaFine Onyx Black pigment ink. I then watercoloured and fussy cut them. You can use the matching dies to cut stamped images. It is so much easier than use scissors. ;)
For the snowy night background, I ink blended on watercolour paper panel with Mermaid Lagoon, Faded Jean, Seedless Preserves, Black Soot Distress inks and mini blending tool, and then added white ink splatters all around the panel. For the sentiment, I die cut the word “Merry & Bright” from white card stock fine times, and then stacked them up using glue pen.
Once the panel was completely dry, I mounted it on white card base using double-sided tape first, and then added the sentiment die cut and the polar bear holding a candy cane on the card front using foam tape.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful weekend!!

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!
