Hello and welcome!
I’m so happy you’ve joined me today and even more excited to be on the Newton’s Nook Designs blog sharing a cute winter card featuring new Snowman Greetings and Snowfall Roundabout stamp sets! I looooooove so much the adorable snowman from Snowman Greetings set since it has the cutest design and can incorporate the greetings inside the wood sign. Just genius!!!
To start, I die cut the snowman using the coordinating Snowman Greetings Die Set on Copic X-Press paper. I saved the negative part of the die and used it as a guide inside the MISTI tool to help me with the alignment while I was stamping the outline image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Finally I colored the snowman with copic markers.
In case you’re wondering, I’m leaving all the exact colors used on this project: COPIC MARKERS
The snowflakes from Snowfall Roundabout were heat embossed in white on Neenah Solar White paper. I blended on top Mermaid Lagoon Distress ink with a very light hand, creating an ombré effect. Finally the snowflake background was framed inside the circle, die cut from the coordinating Circle Frames Die Set, and popped on an extended A2 size kraft card base (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″) along with the snowman. A generous coat of a clear shimmer pen and some matching sequins finished this winter card!
That’s all for today! Hope you like this cute winter card! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fabulous day!

I’m super excited to be featured on SugarPea Designs blog!!! Today I mixed and matched a few amazing SugarCuts to create this holiday project! To start, I die cut adorable type writer and a few leaves and branches using You’re My Type and Floral Pocket Tag SugarCuts. I used colorful cardstock from my stash, but you can start with a plain white paper and easily color the die cut elements with any color media you have on hand. Before gluing all the pieces together, I stamped the sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black ink from the coordinating You’re My Type stamp set.
An extended A2 size (5 1/2″ X 4 1/4″) white card base was trimmed and scored from Neenah Solar White paper. I layered on top a light pink background achieved by inking a piece of the same Neenah Solar White paper through Geo Snowflake Stencil with Simon Says Stamp Cotton Candy dye ink. Next, towards the center of the card front, I applied a vellum tag die cut from Snowflake Tag set. Once arranged all the die cut elements, I popped the type writer on a foam tape for a fun dimensional look and glued the branches directly to the card base. To give a finish festive and winter touch to this project, I die cut two snowflakes from Snowflake Tag SugarCut. I used again Neenah Solar White paper, then put on top a generous coat of Multi Medium Matte liquid adhesive and covered both die cuts with Distress Clear Rock Candy glitter. I let the glue air dry, shake off the excess and finally added both snowflakes on the card front.
That’s all for today! Hope this die cut holiday card will inspire you! As always thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!!!

Today I’m sharing a cute and simple winter scene featuring some fabulous rubber stamps by Purple Onion Designs illustrated by Julian Charlton.
To start, I stamped a few super fun characters and a couple of accessories from Happy Winter Forest Friends set. I worked on on Copic X-Press paper and used Memento Tuxedo Black ink since it’s copic friendly. I fussy cut all the elements with my sharp small scissors, leaving a little white edge around. Before switching to coloring, I finished the stamping with a big background set on Neenah Solar White paper. The Autumnal Tree illustration that completed my scene, goes perfectly for every season, in my opinion.
And here’re all the colors used on this project: COPIC MARKERS fox YR000-YR02-YR04-YR09-E08; rabbit and fox T0-T1-T3-T5; tree and log E40-E41-E42-E43-E44; birds Y11-Y13-Y18-Y21; leaves G40-G82; YG0000-YG00-YG01-YG25-YG67; R30-R32-R35-R39; BG10-BG32; B00.
Since the background was a little bit tricky to mask, I decided to skip this step. I took a small blending brush and inked the sky portion with Tumbled Glass Distress ink keeping my hand very light towards the tree parts before proceeding with copic coloring. Then, once finished with coloring, I added some tiny droplets of a white gouache for a falling snow effect. The cute scene was completed with a snow slope and the matching heat embossed in white onto red sentiment that comes from the same Happy Winter Forest Friends set.
That’s all for today! Hope you like this cute winter card that can be used not only for the holiday greetings!
As always thanks so much for stopping by!

I’m so happy you’ve joined me today and even more excited to be on the Newton’s Nook Designs blog sharing a cute holiday card featuring old, but still one of the favorites Jolly Tags stamp and the coordinating Tags Times Two Die sets.
Recently I made a lot of cards with the hand colored elements, but from time to time it’s so nice to change and try different techniques and styles. Today’s card is quite simple and involves mostly the stamping. To start, I die cut from from Neenah Solar White paper nine tags using Tags Times Two Die set and my Big Shot Die Cutting Machine. I saved the negative part from one die and used it inside the MISTI tool to help me with the alignment. This technique allows to make the stamping really quickly. Just make sure that you clean really well the stamp between the colors.
If you are interested, I’m leaving all the exact types and names of ink used on this card:
row # 1 (from left to right) – Simon Says Stamp Surf Blue Dye ink – Simon Says Stamp Audrey Blue Dye ink – Simon Hurley Remember Me Dye ink;
row # 2 (from left to right) – Simon Hurley Clear Skies Dye ink – Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide ink – Simon Says Stamp Steel Blue Dye ink;
row # 3 (from left to right) – Simon Says Stamp Lavender Dye ink – Simon Says Stamp Hydrangea Dye ink – Simon Says Stamp Hot Mama Dye ink.
An extended A2 size card base (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″) was made from the same Neenah Solar White paper that I used before for the tags. I popped on top a tone on tone background that was inked through my favorite Tiny Trees stencil. For this layer I used the coordinating Fog cardstock and ink from Simon Says Stamp that come in light warm gray shades. Finally I arranged all the tags and popped them on a foam tape along with a heat embossed in white on black sentiment from NND Main Street Christmas stamp set. A few clear sparkling sequins and tree silver bows added a finish touch.
That’s all for today! Hope you like this stamped holiday card! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fabulous day!

I’m super excited to be featured on SugarPea Designs blog!!! Today I came up with a bright Christmas card highlighting wonderful Come Let Us Adore Him stamp set.
To start, I stamped on Copic X-Press paper all the characters I needed for this project with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I used the stamping positioning tool to assure the perfect black outlines. Then I fussy cut all the stamps with a pair of the sharp small scissors leaving a little white edge around and colored all the elements with copic markers. I decided to keep the colors limited and focus on two complimentary shades – blue and yellowy brown.
In case you’re wondering, I’m leaving you the complete list of all the colors used here: COPIC MARKERS B21-B24-B26-B28-B37; Y0000-Y11-Y21-YR24; E0000-E30-E31-E33-E35; E50-E51-E53-E55.
An extended A2 size (5 1/2″ X 4 1/4″) white card base was trimmed and scored from Neenah Solar White paper along with a faux stitched rectangle die cut from Card Front Elements 3 SugarCut. I inked the background with Antique Linen Distress ink from the bottom part, creating the “ground” portion with an ombré effect. The night sky was inked with Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean, Blueprint Sketch and Chipped Sapphire Distress inks from the top part of the die cut frame. I flicked a few tiny droplets of a pearlescent solution along with a couple of small golden splotches to give more interest to the scene. I let the ink air dry very well and then heat embossed on top in gold the star and the sentiment that come from the same Come Let Us Adore Him stamp set. Finally I could assemble all the elements together popping the colored characters on a foam tape for a fun dimensional look.
That’s all for today! Hope this sweet Christmas card will inspire you! As always thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!!!
