Newton’s Nook Designs Holiday Release – Day 3

Hello Everyone,

We are halfway through the Holiday Release reveals at Newton’s Nook Designs. We are introducing you 2 fantastic stamp sets today: Holiday Fringe and Main Street Christmas (which has coordinating dies too with some words included!)


I stamped the Holiday Fringe stamp on kraft cardstock with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with Gold embossing powder.

I used my Prismacolour pencils to add colour, it is so relaxing and pure joy!

When I was done, I trimmed it down with my paper trimmer to have a little frame and matted it with a white scalloped square from the Frames Squared die set.

I popped it up on a red 4,25×4,25 inch card base with 3D foam squares and added some clear shimmer to the ribbons and baubles.

I also added glossy accents to the Merry sentiment,the light string, berries and candy cane. I love the texture and dimension!


For my second card I stamped the Main Street Christmas stamp set on white cardstock and coloured it with Copic markers.

I used rainbow colours 🙂

I die cut it with its coordinating die and added some white Flower Soft to the roofs with liquid glue.

For the background I die cut a scalloped stitched rectangle from Frames and Flags and masked off the scallop part with Purple Tape. I sponged blue distress oxide inks and added some water sprinkles. I also splattered the background with white acrylic paint.

I die cut the word joyful from white glitter cardstock and stamped the santa sleigh in black next to it. I adhered the panel to a kraft note card and popped up the houses with 3D foam squares.


I really wanted to make a more pastel version of the Main Street Christmas, so I white heat embossed it on SSS Fog cardstock. I used Tombow markers to add some grey, pink and blue to the houses and used a white pencil to add white details.

When it was ready I created a mask with the coordinating die and simple printer paper. I also masked off a frame with Purple tape and sponged a light layer of Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink. I tried to get it lighter towards the houses.

I also used the Petite Snow stencil and White Glitz Glitter gel from Thermoweb/Gina K designs to add a layer of snow.

I white heat embossed a sentiment on vivid pink cardstock and die cut it with a skinny banner die (Lawn Fawn).

When the snowflakes were dry I popped up the sentiment banner with 3D foam squares and adhered it all to a white card base.
