Day 2 reserved us two absolutely adorable stamp sets filled with super cute critters!!! And so here we have Caroling Newton and The Nutcracker Squeak stamp sets! Both new sets comes with the coordinating dies.
NND comes with the most adorable designs every time and it’s soooooo hard to pick favorites, but this fabulous trio of kitties from Caroling Newton stamp set has immediately stolen my heart!!! And so I decided to color them as my sweet girl Lilly (on the left), the cutest red Newton – the inspiration for the NND name and logo (in the center) and my eldest boy Tommy (on the right). I can’t stop laughing every time I look at this card!!!
Creating this card, I really invested my time on coloring the cats from Caroling Newton that were die cut from Neenah Solar White paper with the coordinating die and stamped with Memento Tuxedo black ink.
This is the complete list of all copic markers I used here: cat on the left W00-W1-W2-W3; cat in the center Y32-YR21-YR24-YR27; cat on the right E40-E41-E42-E43-E44; YG03-YG25-YG67; B91-B93-B97-B99; R35-RV29-R39; R11-R12; T0-T1-T3; BG10-BG13.
The scalloped frame on the background were die cut with Frames & Flags Die set, slightly inked with Tumbled Glass Distress ink and an ink blending tool. Next new amazing Music stencil was placed on top and inked with Mermaid Lagoon Distress ink. I lifted up and cleaned the stencil and then applied it once more on the background slightly shifted right up. Finally the music pattern was reapplied once again with a white embossing paste. Assembling the card, I simply stamped the matching sentiment from Caroling Newton stamp set and finally popped the background and kitties on a foam tape.
The Music background was chosen again for my second card and paired with the super cute mice from The Nutcracker Squeak. I started this project with a watercolor cardstock from Tim Holtz, inked the whole panel with Shaded Lilac Distress ink and applied the music pattern using Wilted Violet Distress ink. Next I added some water droplet and color splashes across for more fun and playful look.
The cute ballerinas were die cut with the coordinating dies, stamped with VersaFine Onyx Black ink on Strathmore Bristol paper and colored with water markers. I used the matching sentiment from The Nutcracker Squeak stamp set and simply stamped it on the music panel before popping the critters on a foam tape.
Here’s the complete list of all the colors used here: TOMBOW n.N15, n.673, n.723, n.725; ZIG Clean Colour Real Brush n. 95 Mid Gray.
