Then we have small but nor less wonderful Happy New Year stamp set that can be used on its own or paired with other paper craft products to send cheerful greetings to your family and friends.
Giveaway alert!! NND is giving away new Newton’s Snowman stamp set to a lucky winner so make sure you read all the way to the bottom of this post to see how to win!
My first card features Newton’s Snowman stamp and die sets! Since it’s a watercolor project, I switched to my favorite Strathmore Bristol paper and waterproof VersaFine Onyx Black ink. As always, I made the die cutting first using the coordinating Newton’s Snowman Die Set and my Big Shot Die Cutting Machine. Once finished with stamping, I colored the cute kitties and the snowman with Tombow markers.
And here’re all the colors used by me on this card: TOMBOW MARKERS N25, N79, 158, 491, 723, 933, 969, 977, 992 plus Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers n.45 Pale Green and n.61 Light Brown.
The scalloped background square was die cut from Frames Squared Die Set and inked through Snowfall stencil. First I added a light layer of the snowflakes with Tumbled Glass Distress ink and then highlighted a few elements with a brighter Broken China Distress Oxide shade. The matching sentiment was heat embossed in white on a dark grey cardstock and then die cut inside the faux stitched circle from Circle Frames Die Set. Finally all the elements were assembled together on an extended A2 size card base (5 1/2″ X 4 1/4″) made from Neenah Solar White paper.
My second card that features Happy New Year stamp set, turned out as a colorful rainbow project! To start, I trimmed a piece of Neenah Solar White paper slightly smaller than a regular A2 size card base. I taped well Tiny Trees stencil on top and inked every row of trees with a different shade.
These are all the exact Distress inks used by me starting from the top: Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seeds, Twisted Citron, Lucky Clover, Peacock Feathers, Blueprint Sketch, Wilted Violet, Wilted Violet plus Worn Lipstick.
The card base was trimmed and scored to an extended A2 size card (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″) from a light grey cardstock. I popped the rainbow inked piece on a foam tape and then layered on top a vellum rectangle die cut with Frames & Flags Die Set. My favorite way to secure vellum on cards are tiny glue dots that allow to keep everything nice and clean. Happy New Year sentiment was heat embossed on black with Ranger Liquid Platinum embossing powder which is a beautiful color in between gold and silver. Finally a few clear droplets finished this colorful card.
