I am super excited to switch to Winter this week here on my blog as we start the Newton’s Nook Designs Holiday Release reveals! It is a gorgeous, jam packed release all about the upcoming holidays. Lets dive in! Today our team showcases new stencils and 2 fantastic stamp/die sets: Christmas Trimmings and Holiday Lights. All new products will be available on 18/10!
If you follow me you know how much I adore stencils! NND has the most unique ones in my opinion. The Light Strings stencil has 2 pieces for easy layering.
I started with the strings layer on white cardstock adding Versamark ink directly from the ink pad. I poured silver sparkle embossing powder on top and heat set it with a heat gun.
Then I added Distress Inks in rainbow colours through the Lights layer using a mini dauber and before removing the stencil I covered them all with Cosmic Shimmer Frosty Sparkle paste (Creative Expressions).
Until it was drying I die cut a banner from silver metallic cardstock and a smaller one from peacock cardstock using the Frames and Flags die set. On the silver one I heat embossed a sentiment from the Sentiments of the Season stamp set using WOW White Sparkling Snow embossing glitter.
When the paste was dry I trimmed the paneldown a little and adhered it to a grey card base. I popped upthe layered sentiment with 3D foam squares. Look at the sparkle, so beautiful!
On my next card I used the Ornaments stencil on Audrey Blue cardstock (Simon Says Stamp) with Gina K Designs Glitz Glitter Gel (Turquoise Sea).
I applied it with a stencil pal from Thermoweb – it is a fabulous tool and makes spreading the pastes evenly and so fast!
Until it was drying I stamped and coloured the images from the Christmas Trimmings stamp set. I used Copic markers and cut them out with the coordinating dies.
I die cut a stitched Oval (Simon Says Stamp) from Sea glass cardstock and adhered the images. I added some shading under them with a grey Copic marker and a colourless blender.
I also die cut two white circles using the Frames Squared die set and heat embossed some of the sentiments from the stamp set with Antique Gold embossing powder from Simon Says Stamp.
After assembling the card, I added some shimmer to the shoes, ribbon, cap and the baubles with a clear shimmer pen and emphasized some details with glossy accents.
I was so happy to see the face of the girl finally that I had to use that image on another card. I coloured a bunch of presents and baubles too and adhered them all on a strip of Audrey blue cardstock.
I stamped the sentiments around her with Audrey Blue ink and once more with Versamark so I could heat emboss it with clear embossing powder. This way the colour got darker and shiny.
I added some scalloped edges from white cardstock (Sky border die set) and popped it up on a pretty patterned paper from Doodlebug Designs using 3D foam tape.
A bit of clear shimmer and glossy accents were the only embellishments used on this card.
My last card for today is also a very festive one with a lot of shimmer.
I stamped the Holiday Lights images on Bristol Smooth cardstock with Versamark ink and heat embossed with WOW Metallic Gold Sparkle Embossing glitter.
I used some Tombow markers to add colour and spread them out with a clear shimmer pen. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.
I die cut the postage stamp die from Frameworks from heavy weight white cardstock, sprinkled it with gold paint (Finetec) and added 2 strings of gold sparkle twine (Lawn Fawn). I secured them on the back of the panel.
I stamped the sentiment in green in between the 2 strings and popped up the lights with 3D foam squares. I adhered the panel down to a kraft card base.
I love the shimmer and shine on the lights. Simple design but still so unique!
