Welcome back to Day 2 of the Holiday Release Week with Newton’s Nook Designs! We have awesome things to share today: Holiday Home and Christmas Cactus stamp/die sets. Both of them so unique!
All new products will be available on Friday, 15/10/2021.
I started with stamping and colouring the images from the Holiday Home stamp set using Spectrum Noir Triblend markers. The colours I used are the following: Yellow Green Blend, Citrus Green Blend, Dark Red Blend, Earth Brown Shades, Earth Brown Blend, Ice Blue Blend, Red Brown Blend, True Blue Blend. I used the coodinating dies to cut everything out.
Then I prepared the background for my witer scene: I die cut the Slimline Frames and Portholes scalloped rectangle die from white cardstock and used the Hills & Grass stencil to create snowbanks on the bottom half. I used only the residues on my light blue blender brush, I did not ink it up. On the upper half I blended Prize Ribbon and alty Ocean Distress Oxide inks and added some water splatters.
I made sure the ink was dry before I white heat embossed a pretty sentiment on the sky. I also added some sparkly white snowflakes.
I adhered the images, some I popped up with 3D foam squares.
As a finishing touch I used Nuvo White Blizzard Glitter Drops.
I silver heat embossed the Christmas Cactus stamp on Bristol Smooth cardstock twice and used my Karin Brush markers to quickly paint them. I used only one green ad one pink shades and moved the ink with a waterbrush. So relaxing and easy! When it was dry I cut them out with the coordinating dies.
I die cut a large stitched circle with the Circle frames die set from white cardstock and silver heat embossed the sentiment on the bottom. I arranged the 2 cacti above it, but I wanted to give it a green frame. As I could not find the matching cardstock, I created my own: I die cut a bigger white circle (Pink and Main die set) and used the same green brush marker to colour the edges of it. This way it will perfectly match the coloured images.
For the background I did a quick inkblending with Kitch Flamingo Distress Oxide ink on Bristol Smooth cardstock. I added some black and white acrylic paint splatters and spritzed the panel gently with water too. When it was dry I used the Music stencil with Rina K Designs Poppin’ Pink Neon Glitz glitter gel from Thermoweb. Wow, what a pretty colour, and so sparkly! When it was dry, I popped up the focal panel with 3D foam tape and my card was all done!
