Hey crafty friends! It’s time, once again, for the Newton’s Nook Deck the Halls with Inky Paws Hop. I hope you have enjoyed inspiration from guest designers on the Newton’s Nook blog all week. Now, today we come together with a bundle of holiday inspiration and a hop with prizes up for grabs!
For my card, I started by stamping and coloring the adorable Dairy Christmas images, plus a couple of extra holly bits. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and set them aside to start cutting all the layers to my slimline scene.
I started with the main die in the Slimline Frames & Portholes die set, cutting it from blue sparkle and white cardstock. Then I used one of the land borders dies to cut my different snow drifts. I inked up the edges with a light teal ink to help define one from the other.
After layering things together I wanted to fill my scene a little more so I cut some trees from the Forest Scene Builder dies, plus a bird, and the fence die too. I used copics to add depth and dimension to them all and started layering things together.
I used liquid glue for all my layers but popped my critters up with foam tape. Once I got to this point, I decided to add my sentiment to the bottom of the scene instead of the sky. I thought it fit better but didn’t really want the bold of black ink so I used gray to soften it a bit. Then I glued my holly bits in place to decorate things a little more
With the slimline panel all put together, I popped it up on a 3.5×8.5 inch piece of brown cardstock and adhered that to a slimline card base.
For finishing touches, I added white gel pen highlights to a few areas and black glaze pen to the critter’s eyes. I added glossy accents to the holly berries and tree on the cow’s blanket. Aren’t they soooooo cute?!? I love this pile!
