Newton’s Nook – Holiday Release Day 3

Can you even believe we’re already on day 3 of the Newton’s Nook Holiday Release reveal week? It’s just flying by! We have 2 more super amazing and fun stamp and die sets to share with you! Let’s just dive in!

Christmas Cocktails stamps and dies

Dairy Christmas stamps and dies

Let’s start things off with a super festively fun Christmas Cocktails slimline card, shall we?!?

I just couldn’t pick which super fun drink or sentiment to use out of this set so I stamped and colored them all! I honestly thought about making tags with each one, which might come later, but instead I landed on this fun slimline card.

I blended distress oxide ink in blueprint sketch and tumbled glass on a large panel and spritzed it with water. I also flicked some gold watercolor on it for added texture. Once it was dry, I die cut it with the Slimline Frames & Portholes largest die.

To assemble my card, I created a white card base and adhered some polka dot textured red cardstock to it. Then I added the ink blended panel with foam tape. I arranged my glasses so they were almost clinking in pairs and popped them up with foam squares.

I chose a sentiment from the set and heat embossed it on a banner from the Banner Trio die set. I used liquid glue and reverse tweezers to glue the ends together and popped the banner up with foam squares as well. For finishing touches I added little bits of glossy accents and unicorn stickles to all the glasses or garnishes.

Moving on to one of my favorite sets from this release. The stack of super adorable farm critters in Dairy Christmas just make my heart happy! I had so much fun coloring them up and creating a unique design to showcase them on.

For this card, I brought out the new paper pad again. These patterns and colors are just perfection! I love them all! After the critters were colors and die cut, I cut a white panel with the largest Framework die. Then I cut some strips from the paper pad. While arranging them together I thought the white panel was too stark so I blended a little light blue shadow in the center. Then I adhered everything with foam squares and strips.

Playing off of the strips on the main panel, I cut another piece of the striped paper and adhered it to a white card base and then popped my Framework panel up with foam tape as well. I placed the whole thing in my MISTI and stamped a sentiment in the top right corner. For fun I stamped, colored and cut out the holly image from the set and popped it up too.

For finishing touches I added glossy accents and unicorn stickles to various parts of the images like the tree, hooves, critter noses and such.
