Hello Everyone,

It is Day 2 of Newton’s Nook Designs’ Holiday release reveals. Today we feature the Dear Santa and the Nutcrackers stamp/die sets which also has a fun word die included!

All new products will be available on 23rd Oct, 2020!


For my first card I stamped the images from Dear Santa on white cardstock and coloured them with Copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

I also die cut a tag using the Fancy edges tag die set and white cardstock. The snow banks I cut with a Land border die and added a bit of shading to it with Copic markers. The reinforcer I cut from dark red cardstock and added red twine after popping up Santa with 3D foam squares.

I wanted to use the new Reindeer stencil as I felt it is the perfect match with Santa so I applied Gathered Twigs Distress Oxide ink over it on a kraft card base. I used a blending brush for a subtle result.

The sentiment I white heat embossed on a special brown shimmer cardstock for a festive feel and cut it down to a very narrow strip. After assembling the card I could not resist adding a bit of stickles to Santa’s uniform and a bit of glossy accents to his boots and belt.


The Nutcrackers is one of my favourite sets in this release, maybe because it reminds me of my childhood. I was 6 years old when I saw the ballet and it enchanted me. I imagined a classic look for my little wooden creatures so I stamped and coloured them with red, green any yellow Copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

I die cut the rounded rectangle from Frames and Flags from a satin pearl cardstock. I also cut the fun word die included in the Nutcrackers coordinating die set from green glitter cardstock and arranged them on the top and the bottom of the pearl panel. I popped up the two nutcrackers in between using 3D foam squares.

I white heat embossed another sentiment on brown cardstock and used a small circle die to cut it out.

For the background I chose a classic brown checked patterned paper, I really feel it makes the images stand out. And again, perfect for our guys too. I added clear shimmer and glossy accents to some details on the clothes and made the eyes shiny with a black glaze pen.
