Yay!!! We’re already to day 3 of the Newton’s Nook Winter Release reveal week. It’s flying by and we’ve got more adorable things to share with you today. I hope you’re ready for more awesome roundabouts because that’s what we’ve got!
Look at all these cuties!!! They’re so fun and I love the different style of sentiments on this set too! Coloring some of the letters in is so much fun!
Today I decided to make a square card that really features these cute snowman images instead of using it as a background like the Snowfall Roundabout yesterday.
I have found that when I want to use the roundabout stamps like this, I like to die cut the scalloped circle first and stamp my image on that. I find it easier to center for some reason. Just thought I’d share that. 😉 After I did all that I colored the whole panel with copic markers and set it aside. I pulled out the Frames Squared dies and cut a plaid square from those. Then I took a circle from that and one from the Circle Frames and cut them out for my sentiment. The sentiment I chose is actually from Snowman Greetings on day 1. It went so well and fit perfectly inside the circle, I couldn’t resist.
I also pulled out Pines & Holly and cut the holly and bow out. I used copics to color the veins in the holly a little darker and glued them together. Then I added some red flat sequins to the holly berried and center of the bow.
You all know I like dimension and glitter. There’s no shortage of either on this card. The plaid square is popped up on a red card base, which I rounded the corners on to match. Then the awesome Snowman Roundabout panel is popped up too. The sentiment is attached with a combo of liquid glue and foam squares to keep it level, just like the holly. Then the bow was attached with liquid glue beneath the sentiment circle.
For finishing touches I added a scattering of glossy accents on things like hat bands, coffee mugs and hearts. Then I added unicorn Stickles on things like the snow and hat brims. Finally I added black glaze pen to all the snowman eyes and buttons to give them a little shine and interest.
