Newton’s Nook – Holiday Release Day 2

Welcome back friends! It’s day 2 of the reveal week for the Newton’s Nook Holiday release! Today we’ve got 2 fun stamp and die sets to share with you.

Holiday Home

Christmas Cactus

I’ve got a pair of really great cards to share with you today. First up, I created a beautiful slimline scene card with the Holiday Home set.

For this card, I stamped a few images from the set and cut them out with the coordinating dies. Then I cut 2 circles using the Circle Frames dies. I took the white circle and used the Land Borders dies to cut one snow drift and the Sea Borders dies to cut the other one. Before adhering the snow drifts to the blue circle, I stamped a few snowflakes in the sky. After the circle layers were adhered I added the trees and house with liquid glue.

For my background panel, I inked up a piece of white cardstock with evergreen bough, iced spruce and cracked pistachio distress oxide inks. Then I spritzed it with water and flicked gold watercolor all over it. Using my images as a guide, I stamped the sentiment at the bottom and assembled my card.

I added the background panel to a white slimline card base. Then popped the circle scene up with foam tape and added the kids with a combo of foam squares and liquid adhesive.

For finishing touches I added unicorn stickles and glossy accents to various parts of the images and scene.

For my second card today I created something that reminds me of a Christmas cactus my mom had when I was a kid. It was in a macramé hanger and the arms of the cactus would hang over the edge.

I started by stamping and coloring 2 of the Christmas cactus image. I used the coordinating dies to cut it out and found a cardstock in the same pink tone as my flowers. Next, I adhered the Snowfall stencil to it and spread iridescent glitz glitter gel through the stencil. I cleaned up and set my panel aside to dry. Next, I die cut a scalloped rectangle from the Framework die set and inked the same stencil up with light teal ink and a blending brush. Then I stamped my sentiment at to bottom.

Once my background panel was dry, I adhered it to a white card base and popped the smaller panel up with foam tape. I adhered the Christmas cactus with foam squares and finished my card off with some glossy accents on the flower stamen.
