Newton’s Nook Designs Holiday Release – Day 2

Hello everyone,

Welcome back to Day 2 of the Holiday Release reveals at Newton’s Nook Designs. Today we are featuring 2 adorable little stamp/die sets: Holiday Haul and Wreath Pups.

All new products will be available on 14/10/2022.


For my first card I started with colouring the cute puppies from Wreath Pups using Copic markers. The exact colours used are the following:

  • wreath : YG67, YG17, YG23, RV69, R39, R37, R35
  • puppy 1: T9, T7, T5, T3, T1
  • puppy 2: E55, E53, E51, E40

I cut it out with the coordinating die. I also cut a scalloped rectangle with the Frames and Flags die set from vellum and a green banner to hold the sentiment which I white heat embossed. I added a slightly smaller white rectangle under the vellum and popped up the puppy an banner with 3D foam squares.

I used one of the patterned papers from the Christmas Time paper pad, matted it with dark red cardstock and mounted the focal panel on it with foam tape.

As a finishing touch I used a clear shimmer pen on the ribbon and added white gel pen highlights. I used a gold glitter pen on the berries, a back glaze pen on the eyes and glossy accents on the noses.


I started with stamping and colouring the truck from Holiday Haul with Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers: DR6, DR4, DR2, DR1, DR05, GB5, GB4, GB3, GB1, BT4, BT3, BT2, BT1, BT05, IG8, IG6, IG4, JG7, JG5, JG4, JG3, LG4, LG2. I cut it out with the coordinating die.

I used the Circle Frames di set to cut the biggest scalloped circle from white and a smaller stitched one from light blue cardstock. I used the Petite Snow stencil with Ranger white Texture Paste to add snow to the latter and cut a slightly bigger circle from red metallic cardstock to give it a frame.

While the snow was drying, I white heat embossed a sentiment on patterned paper from the Christmas Time paper pad. Then I popped up the focal panel with 3D foam squares.

As a finishing touch I added clear shimmer to the presents, and glossy accents to emphasize some details. Instead of the vivid white gel pen highlights I used a white pencil to add a softer look. Looks cool, isn’t it?

  1. Love the new pups wreath set. Thank you for including the copic colors used so I can try to replicate at home. Trying to learn how to color all of my dog stamps!


  2. The puppies are sooooo cute! Love both cards. The color combo you used for the truck card is gorgeous and one of my faves.


  3. Great choices of patterned paper for the backgrounds of your cards! Love your pretty coloring of these cute stamped images!
