Deck the Halls with Inky Paws Hop


Happy Friday everyone... It's time for a Fun Blog Hop from Newton's Nook Designs. All week long Special guest have been taking over the blog to celebrate Deck the Halls with inky paws week. To wrap the week up we are having a Blog Hop! 

The Design Team and Guest have created some Fabulous Holiday projects for you and we have a Giveaway... Stay tuned at the end of this post for all the details. 

I'm using the new Peppermint Die set that's available this week. I started by created a Background with some Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink on a piece of Watercolor paper that I die cut with the Frames and Flags Die set (currently out of stock but sign up on the website to be notified when this will be available so you can grab yours before they are gone again!) . Then I adhered the panel to a top folding A2 size Black card base and set it aside. 



I die cut the peppermint pieces from some smooth Bristol card stock. I smooshed the Candied Apple Distress Oxide Ink onto my craft mat and spritzed it with water then I smooshed each piece of the peppermint into the ink. I set it aside to dry and then I added a little more and some water drops, allowing the pieces to dry in between layers. I left the centers White and added a little Hickory Smoke Distress Ink with an Aqua Brush. I adhered the peppermint candies to the background some with Liquid glue and some with Foam tape for different heights. 


Then I die cut another piece of Bristol and using the Flags and Frames die and stamped the sentiment from the Newton's Candy Cane stamp set. I adhered that along the edge and added one of the peppermints to it as well. I wanted a little bling but not too much so I added some Mixed Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. So Cute!!!!

25 Days of Christmas Tags



Happy Friday everyone... Today Right at Home Stamps is joining Tracey McNeely's 25 Days of Christmas Tags Series. You can find more info on her blog here.

I created a cute trio of Gift Card holders using the Right at Home Folded Gift Tag die set , Christmas Critters and the Christmas Foliage sets



I die cut each of the tags from some Kraft and Dark Red papers and then I stamped them with the Right at Home Gingham background Stamp. I created the tag using some tape adhesive and then I added some Ribbon to the top of each. 


I stamped the images with several shades of Lawn Fawn Inks and I colored the pine cones with Copics. I used the coordinating dies to cut the images out and adhered them to each tag. I blinged them up with some Sequins and enamel dots. This is a great die set to use all year long for quick gifts. 

Head over to Tracey's  Blog for more Tags and gift ideas and a Chance to WIN a $20 Gift Certificate from Right at Home!!

NND Reveal Day #2



Are you ready for another Peek at the Newton's Nook November Release? We have another Super Cute set for you today.... It's called Winter Woofs and it also has a coordinating die set. 

This is a fun set to create a scene with... I did just that using the snowflakes as a background with some Distress Inks and the Land borders die set to create a few snowy hills. 


My pups are having fun playing in the snow and building a snowman. I embossed the snowflakes in White on a piece of Bristol smooth paper and then I added some Salty Ocean Distress Oxide Ink. I created two hills with the land borders die as well. I assembled the scene and stamped the sentiment in the lower corner.


I stamped the images onto some additional Bristol paper and colored them in with Distress Inks. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and adhered them to the card front with foam tape. I wanted it to look like it was snowing so I added some splatters of White paint all over the background and a little on the pups. So cute... if you have a dog lover in your life this set is perfect for them!

NND November Release Day 1




It's time for the November Release from Newton's Nook Designs. This release is packed full of everything you could need for your Holiday Crafting!!! We're kicking it off with a look at 2 new stand-alone Die set and 2 new stamp sets! 




Up first is Frozen Fellowship.. this a super fun Snowman set... There are so many different ways to use this set. I paired it with the Fancy Edges Tag Die and the new Frames and Flags die sets. 


I used the spotlighting technique and colored the snowman on the tag and overlayed them over the whole image that I stamped on the Scalloped Frame. I added some Rainbow pattern paper and used colored based on the paper to color the snowman with. This image is rather large and fills almost an entire A2 size card base... Perfect for mass producing cards. 

Up next is Cup of Cocoa and it's coordinating die set. 


I love this set... There are so many cute sentiments and coffee cups. This set can be used all year for any occasion. I created a background with some Cracked Pistachio Distress ink on some Watercolor paper I die cut with the Scalloped Frame die and then I stamped each of the mugs onto some Copic friends paper and colored them in. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. 


I used the Banner die in the Frames and Flags die set and created a banner for the sentiment. I used a mix of some sequins in my stash to coordinate with the colors in the mugs. There some Clear Wink of Stella on some of the mugs for a bit of Sparkle. So Cute!!!! 

It's only day 1 so be sure to join us all week as we reveal the rest of the release and all items will be in the shop on the 24th!!

YNS November Blog Hop!!



It's time for the November Release from Your Next Stamp... All the products are now available in the shop and we have a Fun Blog Hop where you can Win a $25 GC to the store. 

My first project features the new Merry Mouse Joyful Greetings and the Snowflake Panel Die. I created an Ombre background on a piece of Distress Watercolor paper with Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean and Blueprint Sketch Distress Inks. Then I die cut the panel with the Snowflake Panel die. 


I stamped the sentiment in the center and heat embossed it in White then I adhered the panel to a White card base with some foam tape. I stamped the image from Merry Mouse Joyful Christmas onto some X-Press it blending cardstock using Black Olive ink and colored it in with Copics. Then I used the coordinating die to cut it out. I adhered the image to the panel with some foam tape. I added some Gold and Clear Glitter Nuvo drops to parts of the image. 

For my second project, I used the Snowflake Panel die and the negative pieces I had left over. I die cut the panel from a piece of White and adhered it to a White card base. Then I paper pieced some of the snowflakes and dots into the snowflake panel. 


I added some BLue Glitter Nuvo drops into some of the small dots and then some Clear Glitter Gumdrops as well. I stamped the sentiment in the corner of the center panel with VersaFine Black ink. I stamped the bird image from the new Tweet Love Birds set in Black Olive ink and Colored it in with Copics. I used the coordinating die to cut the image out and adhered it with some Foam tape. I added some Silver and Clear Wink of Stella to parts of the image. 


This is another great Holiday Release!!! Hope along with us and be sure to leave comments along the way for a chance to Win a $25 GC to the store. And we have a special Sale in the store as well! 




YNS November Sneak!!!

Today the Design Team is sharing sneaks at some of the new products that will be available tonight at 10pm est. and be sure to join us at 10pm for our New Release Blog Hop and a chance to Win a $25 GC to the store. 

I'm sharing a Peek at the new Waddles Winter Wonderland Stamp and Die set and the Igloo Die


I die cut a piece of Bristol paper with the Large Stitched Rectangle die set and then I die cut a few more pieces with the Double Stitched Hillside die to create snow banks. I added some Tumbled Glass Distress ink behind the snowbanks and adhered them with a tape runner. Then I stamped the sentiment along the top using Black Olive Ink. I adhered the panel to a Purple card base and set it aside. 


I die cut the Igloo from some additional Bristol paper and added some color with Tumbled Glass and Milled Lavender Distress Inks. Then I paper pieced it back together and added some Glitter Nuvo Drops. I adhered the Igloo to the scene with liquid glue. I stamped each penguin onto some Bristol paper and colored them in with Inktense Pencils and a water-brush. Once they were dry I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and adhered them to the panel with foam tape. I added some Glitter Nuvo drops to a different area of each penguin. 

This is such a cute set!!! Head over to the YNS Blog for more peeks from the Design Team and don't forget to join us at 10pm est tonight for the Blog Hop and all the products will be available in the store!
