Santa Paws is coming!

Hello Everyone,

I have a super cute and easy card design for you today using an older stamp set from Newton’s Nook Designs. Santa Paws Newton is an adorable set with the sweetest images.

I started with stamping and colouring the kitty and accessories with Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers. I used DR5, DR3, DR1. DR05, BG5, BG3, BG2, BG1, BG05, AG4, AG2, AG05, EB4, RB2, RB1, RB05. I cut them all out with the coordinating dies.

Then I used a scallop die from Sky borders to cut 4 pieces of textured red cardstock for the roof. I used a dark red ink to add some shading to it.

For the background I did some quick ink blending on Distress Watercolour cardstock. I love the texture of that! I used Uncharted Mariner and Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide inks, generously spritzed it with water and added some drops of Picket Fence Distress Paint too for snow.

For the sentiment I die cut a Speech Bubble from white cardstock and stamped a greeting in the middle of it from the Santa Paws Newton set.

As a finishing touch I used a clear shimmer pen on the presents and fur of the Santa costume and added glossy accents to the ribbons. I made the eyes and nose of the mice shiny with a black glaze pen.

I hope you like this simple yet cute design and will pop in again soon.

See you tomorrow,
