Newton’s Nook – Deck the Halls with Inky Paws Blog Hop

Be sure to hop through for tons of great inspiration and comment for a chance to win! There’s also a surprise sale going on so be sure to treat yourself after soaking in all these awesome ideas!

To make my card, I started by stamping and coloring the images from Festive Fawns with my copic markers. Then I used the coordinating dies to cut them all out. I arranged them on an oversized panel to see how far down I need my sky to go, then I blended chipped sapphire and tumbled glass distress oxide ink on a panel. I spritzed it with water and then dried it with my heat gun. I placed the Snowfall stencil over the top and inked it up with my VersaMark ink pad. I sprinkled some crystal glitter embossing powder over it and heated it up. The snowflakes have a little shimmer to them in the light. I just love it!

Next, I took out some white cardstock and used the Land Borders die to cut out some hills for my deer to rest on. Next, to fill in the sky a bit I cut the trees from the Forest Scene Builder die set. I used liquid glue to adhere my trees and hills down, then trimmed the panel to 3.5×8.5. I used foam squares to pop up all of my images and moved on to my sentiment.

For that I die cut a banner from the Slimline Frames & Windows set from vellum and heat embossed my sentiment in white. I hid some liquid glue behind the embossing and adhered it down to the top right of my card.

For finishing touches, I added glossy accents to parts of the packages; the snowman buttons, eyes and nose; and the deer’s eye and noses too! Then I used Christmas Red Stickles to all the red accents like holly berries, package dots and the wreath berries. Last but not least, I added Unicorn Stickles to the edge of the snow hills and the trees at the top too.

  1. Slimline cards are popular and your scene and oh deer so cute. Reminds me of video I watched yesterday of a fawn that was wandering in person’s backyard in NC and the mother deer was no where to be found. They nourished the fawn caring for it until it could be on its own.
