25 Days of Christmas Tags – Newton’s Nook Designs

Hello Everyone,

I am so excited to be part of the 10th Annual 25 Days of Christmas Tags event hosted by Tracey McNeely! I love this event, not just because it is jam packed with inspiration but there are amazing Sponsors and prizes to win.

Each day a new brand is in focus, today we are all featuring Newton’s Nook Designs. Here is my tag:

I used the super cute puppy from Christmas puppies, coloured him with Copics and cut him out with the coordinating dies.

Then I die cut the Snow globe shaker frame from white cardstock 3 times, the backing from patterned paper and the bottom from silver metallic cardstock. I used the backing die to cover up the twine which I adhered to the back of the snow globe. In this way there is place for a message and it can work as an ornament too.

The sentiment I die cut from silver sparkle cardstock and adhered it at an angle.

As a finishing touch I covered the present and the scarf with clear shimmer and added glossy accens to the nose and the cany cane. The eyes I made shiny with a black glaze pen. I love how it turned out, I cannot wait to make more!

Make sure to visit Tracey’s blog for more inspiration and I hope you play along!

See you soon with more fun projects!

Slimline Christmas – Newton’s Nook Design

Hello Everyone,

I am here today with a simple slimline Christmas card I created with the latest release of Newton’s Nook Designs.

When I first saw the Christmas Puppies and A Kitten Christmas sets I knew I need to use them together on a card. I chose the kitty and pup with the string of lights, stamped them on Copic friendly cardstock and coloured them with Copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

I created an 8,5*3,5 inches white card base and covered the front with patterned paper from my stash. Then I die cut the Slimline Frames and Windows die from red and cream cardtsock and adhered them to the base.

I popped up the critters vertically using thick 3D foams squares. The sentiment I white heat embossed on a green banner (the die is also from the Slimline Frames and Windows set). I popped it up also with 3D foam squares and embellished it with holly berries.

As a finishing touch I used glossy accents on each light bulb and also on the berries. The eyes I made shiny with my black glaze pen.

I hope you enjoyed this simple slimline card idea and you will share yours in our FB fan group.

See you soon,

Zsofi
