Cuteness overloads today on my blog!!! Two SUPER FUN, CUTE and ABSOLUTELY ADORABLE stamp sets Naughty Or Mice and Santa Paws Newton are coming to the NND store tomorrow and couldn’t wait to share them with you! Both of them as always have the coordinating dies. And let me tell you, all creature fans, you are going to love them!!!
Giveaway alert!! NND is giving each new stamp set away to one lucky winner so make sure you read all the way to the bottom of this post to see how to win!
Here’s my first clean and simple card with the cutest little mouse from Naughty Or Mice stamp set. I went for a non traditional Christmas colors inspired by the bright yellow from the cheese part of the stamp, I decided to add the complementary purple color and create a little bit of contrast!
I stamped the cute creature on a Bristol paper with a waterproof ink, colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and die-cut using the coordinating dies. In case you are interested, I’m leaving all the exact colors I used here at the bottom of this post. For the background I used the negative part of a circle mask and blended inside Sqeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seeds and Wild Holly Distress inks. I also used a new Holiday Foliage stencil in a creative way: I masked with a piece of posted tape the three berries and added them here and there creating a few matching accents. The sentiment from the same Naughty Or Mice set was simply heat embossed with a white embossing powder.
There would be no purr-fect release without the cutest mischief Newton! LOL! This time he has “got” somewhere the Santa’s costume and feels like he is a real Santa! (Sorry, I can’t stop laughing myself every time I see this cuteness!) To be serious my second card features, of course, Santa Paws Newton stamp set.
The adorable stamps once more were die-cut with the coordinating dies and colored with Zig markers.
For the background I created a rectangle window on the additional panel and blended a few Distress Oxide inks directly on the card base. Interpreting this part as a sort of the night sky, I added falling snow using new Snowfall stencil and a white embossing paste. When I applied the embossing paste the ink was still a little wet and so it soaked into the embossing paste creating a fun soft look. A simple heat embossed sentiment and a few sequins finished this cute card.
