I am super excited to share with you a whole week of Holiday fun as we start the reveals of Newton’s Nook Designs’ Holiday release! Today we feature the Destination Christmas and Christmas Camper stamp/die sets and 2 fantastic new stencils!
All new products will be available on 23rd Oct, 2020!
For my first card I stamped the images from Destination Christmas on Bristol Smooth cardstock and painted the images with Altenew watercolours. I almost never use watercolours but I just zoned out and painted without thinking. When they were dry I used the coordinting dies to cut them out.
I used the rounded square from Frames squares die set to cut a panel from watercolour cardstock and painted a night sky with blue watercolours. I dried it with my heat tool and splattered it with white acrylic paint and some liquid pixie dust.
Meanwhile it was drying I used the new Tiny trees stencil on a white card base with white texture paste to get a tone-on-tone background.
When the cardbase was ready I popped up the cars with 3D foam squares on the focal panel and white heat embossed a sentiment on a thin strip of vellum which I wrapped around the top. I matted it with red cardstock and adhered it to the card base with thin 3D foam tape. I finished it off with red twine. Isn’t it perfect for guys?
For my second card I used the Evergreens stencil on a white card base with Bundled Sage Distress Oxide ink to create the forest background. Then with a small blending brush I applied Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide for the sky.
Then I stamped and black heat embossed the images from Christmas Campers on Bristol Smooth cardstock and coloured them with Karin Bruhmarkers. I love these markers as they have a lot of pigment and just a drop of colour is enough to have bright results. I used a simple waterbrush to distribute the colours and cut everything out with their coordinating dies.
Using the Land border dies I die cut a snow bank from white glitter cardstock (Simon Says Stamp) and assembled the scene. I used 3D foam squares for the images to create dimension.
For the sentiment I die cut the Happy Holiday from Holiday Greetings 4 times from red cardstock and layered them on top of each other. I love that it looks like chipboard. I stamped and extra sentiment under it in black and my card was all finished. Perfect card for guys too, don’t you think?
