All the new November products will be available for purchase on Friday, November 23th at Newton’s Nook Designs online store and other craft retailers!
NND Design Team is kicking off this week with three super ADORABLE stamp sets and two really fabulous layering stencils. And so we have Moose Mountain and Christmas Haul stamp sets that come with the coordinating dies and Snowman Advice stamp set plus Plaid and Argyle stencils that are so much fun to play with for creating infinite number of patterns.
Giveaway alert!! NND is giving a $25 store credit to Newton’s Nook Designs to a lucky winner so make sure you read all the way to the bottom of this post to see how to win!
To start, I die cut from Neenah Solar White paper using the Moose Mountain Die Set and stamped the coordinating images from Moose Mountain stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Next I had the most wonderful time coloring the cute moose with copic markers.
In case you’re wondering, I’m leaving you the complete list of all the markers used here: E30-E31-E33-E35; B000-B00-B01-B02-B04; YR21-YR15-YR68; YG00-YG21-YG23; Y23-Y27; T0-T1; BG10-BG11.
Next I heat embossed the sentiment from the same Moose Mountain stamp set on a piece of a black cardstock and proceeded with the plaid background. New Plaid stencil is a layering one. It means that it has two separate stencils to go one on top of each other. Each individual stencil has marks that will help you to lay the stencils easily. But you can definitely play with both layers and create your own patterns. On this particular background I inked the first layer with Mermaid Lagoon Distress inks keeping my hand light. Next I placed the second layer and added more stripes with Spiced Marmalade Distress ink. Since I felt like my pattern needed more color, I cleaned and then reapplied the second layer another time using Mermaid Lagoon ink more heavily.
Finally I assembled everything using Land Borders Die Set to create a snow slope, added a bit of shimmer with Wink of Stella Clear Brush Pen and a few matching sequins.
Next come super adorable Christmas Haul stamp and die sets. My first steps were exactly the same as described on the previous project. Once again I used copic markers for coloring.
Here’s all the exact numbers of copic markers used here: E50-E51-E53-E55; YG00-YG01-YG25;RV00-RV02-RV55; B000-B01-BG15; RV14-RV29.
Next I prepared a square card base where first I added a fun tiny pattern through Petite Snow stencil using Peacock Feathers Distress ink and then inked the whole piece with Tumbled Glass Distress ink. I also trimmed another square from a white cardstock, die cut a window inside using Snowglobe Shaker Die Set and finally stamped the sentiment from the same Christmas Haul set with the same black ink I used for stamping the images. At this point I assembled everything with a bit of dimension and an inevitable Wink of Stella Clear Brush Pen.
The central panel was die cut from Frames & Flags Die Set, inked with a few tones of blue Distress inks and was used to heat emboss the big beautiful sentiment from Snowman Advice stamp set along with a few snowflakes from the same set.
The fun part came with new Argyle stencil used for the background. It’s a layering stencil like the Plaid one we talked before. It also has the marks on both layers for easy alignment, but you can definitely mix and match both layers as you wish. On this project I used twice the layer number one first with Cracked Pistachio and then with Mermaid Lagoon Distress inks. I also used twice the second layer adding Mermaid Lagoon and Blueprint Sketch colors and ended up with a full colorful pattern where I popped the sentiment panel on a foam tape and embellished with a few matching sequins.
