Oh Deer, Christmas Card by Andrea Shell

Oh Deer, Christmas Card by Andrea Shell | Deer Friend Stamp Set, Festive Fawns Stamp Set, Forest Scene Builder Die Set and Land Borders Die Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

Oh, Deer!

Oh Deer! Christmas will be here soon, are you ready? The cute deer on this card by Andrea are ready to send adorable holiday greetings today! She created this darling card using the sweet deer from two different stamp sets. The deer pulling all the gifts on a sled is from our Festive Fawns Stamp Set and the duo of deer on the left are from our Deer Friend Stamp Set. These cuties work perfectly together. She colored all the images and cut them out using the coordinating Festive Fawns Die Set and Deer Friend Die Set. Then she created a fun long format card to showcase this lovely winter scene. She started with a pink sky and added a snowy hill along the bottom using our Land Borders Die Set. Then she added trees that were cut out using our Forest Scene Builder Die Set. She cut the trees out of white paper and then hand colored in the green, leaving portions of the white to look like snow! What a fabulous idea!

Here is a are some close ups so you can see the details and coloring:

Tag Trio and Gift Box by Maria Russell

Cute Animal Gift Tags by Maria Russell | Sweater Weather Stamp Set and Fancy Edges Tag Die Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

Special Touches for Holiday Gifts!

Today Maria is sharing two projects that are perfect for adding that special touch to your holiday gifts! First, she created a trio of adorable tags using our Sweater Weather Stamp Set. She stamped the kitty, bunny and fox wearing sweaters from the set and colored them in fun bright pastels. She also added fun details like rosy cheeks on the animals and sparkles on the hats! She used the coordinating Sweater Weather Die Set to cut the images out. Then she created the sweet tags using our Fancy Edges Tag Die Set with a mix of gingham and polka dotted papers. This die set is fun because it has several mini borders that you can mix and match to create fun borders and edges for your tags! To finish them off she added the word "joy" die cut out using the bonus words from our Snow Globe Shaker Die Set too!

Next she created a custom gift box that is perfect for a small and special gift! She used our Naughty or Mice Stamp Set for the image of the mouse opening the present. She colored this sweet image and cut it out with the coordinating Naughty or Mice Die Set. She created a scene for the mouse adding some blue distress inks to the sky.  A snowy hill was added along the bottom, cut out with our Land Borders Die Set. To add to the holiday scene she used the fun bold tree from our Festive Forest Stamp Set, cutting it out with the coordinating Festive Forest Die Set. This tree is the perfect size to match with that little mouse! Such a fun combination of images!

Sparkly Peppermint Card by Zsofia Molnar

Sparkly Peppermint Card by Zsofia Molnar | Peppermint Die Set and Sentiments of the Season Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

Sweet and Sparkly!

Today Zsofia created a holiday card filled with sparkles and sweets!! She used our Peppermint Die Set to cut out three sparkly candies. She used glitter paper in blue, purple and white for the fun die cuts. She added them stacked in a vertical row onto her card, leaving a space for the sentiment between the bottom two. For the message she embossed the sentiment "May your holidays sparkle with joy and happiness" from our Sentiments of the Season Stamp Set, embossed with green embossing powder. She layered this fun panel over a candy filled background paper that coordinates perfectly with the theme!

Here is a close up photo so you can see the gorgeous sparkle:

Deck the Halls with Inky Paws Blog Hop! Christmas Trimmings Card by Jennifer Jackson | Christmas Trimmings Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade
Today I created this fun Holiday card using the festive ladies working on Holiday preparations from our Christmas Trimmings Stamp Set. I colored both images using copic markers and used the coordinating Christmas Trimmings Die Set to cut them out. I also cut a white scalloped rectangle using our Frames & Flags Die Set. I added both ladies to this rectangle along with the sentiment.

For the fun background pattern I used our Ornaments Stencil with white embossing paste over a red paper. I love the color and texture this gives the card! Then I thought it needed a little more pop of color so I cut out a scalloped edge using our Sky Borders Die Set and some teal paper. I added this along the side and finished it off with some white bakers twine. And done! Easier than putting up Christmas decorations, right!?

Deck the Halls with Inky Paws Week - Day 3 - Chari Moss

Welcome to day three of our Deck the Halls with Inky Paws week! 

Each day this week we will have a new awesome featured guest and then a BIG blog hop on Friday, December 6th (with some give-aways, of course!) So make sure you come back and visit us every day!

Today's Featured guest is Chari Moss

Hi my name is Chari Moss and I live in the mountains of NC. I work as an architect by day and get crafty in the evenings. I like bright and happy designs with lots of color and enjoy creating scenes with cute stamped images.

Here's what Chari created:

Deck the Halls with Inky Paws Week - Day 3 - Chari Moss | Tri Fold Winter Scene Card using Festive Fawns Stamp Set and Evergreens Stencil by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade
Chari created an amazing tall tri-folding winter scene that will melt your heart! She used the adorable deer images from our Festive Fawns Stamp Set. She colored the sweet deer pulling the gifts and the deer wearing a wreath in festive colors. She also added a bit of shimmer to the red berries. Behind the deer she a created a winter forest, adding trees that were stenciled using our Evergreen Stencil. She added a bit of glitter to the edges of the stenciled branches too for an extra special touch. 

Here is how the tri-fold card opens:

Once you open the right side, you see just the scene with the deer and wreath. Isn't it cool how she cut around the stenciled trees to make a fun folded shape?

Then you can fold the other side open:

This reveals a new scene that was hidden by the other layers! In this center scene she used the image of the deer peeking around the snowman at the bunny from the Festive Fawns Stamp Set. How adorable is that!?
