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!!!!
