Good Morning and Happy Hump Day!!
I am very excited to share with you some awesome news.....
not to long ago I was asked by Jennifer~owner and designer for Newton's Nook Designs if I would be interested in being a Guest Designer the first week of December. Well of course I said yes~ first because I had never heard of Newton's Nook Designs and secondly because I thought it would be a great way to share with my friends and followers an adorable stamp company that makes the cutest sets!
I was able to pick out 2 stamp sets to use and have several projects to share between today's post and the fun Blog Hop we have scheduled for Friday.
I started with a Kraft card stock base and used designer papers from My Minds Eye~All is Bright paper pack.
I stamped the cute snowmen on a piece of the designer paper, and added a bit of color to them using my copic markers. I thought they would look adorable in a frame so I die cut the frame from My Creative Time~Just Simply Live set. I added additional hearts above the snowmen and then stamped the sentiment from the same set onto the frame.
After adding some stitching to the border of the designer paper as well as some zig zag stitching to add some more decorative elements, I put the card together. I thought it needed a little something more, so I pulled a snowflake punch out, added a few in the matching designer paper and then added some SU bling to the center. I also added touches of diamond stickles to the snowmen for a bit more sparkle.
For my next card I used the Holiday Wishes stamp set and came up with this CAS design
I actually am going to make several more of these to send out to friends for Christmas. For this card I started with a black card base, added a layer of green and then my top layer of white cardstock. I stamped the sentiment first onto the white card stock, making sure to line up the wording as best as I could in the center of the card. Once I was happy with the centering, I stamped my stockings above and then went to adding some color to the image using my copics. I wanted to add some more sparkle to the stockings so I brought out my diamond stickles again. To finish up my card I added a few red sequins around the sentiment and my card was finished.
I hope you have enjoyed my cards! I really had fun putting them together. Make sure to check out the Newton's Nook Designs Blog for more projects and inspiration using these sets as well as their store for additional stamp sets that are available.
Please come back and join myself and an amazing lineup of designers on Friday for the.....
There will be lots of inspiration and a prizes as well!
