Fa-la-la-la-llama Card by Juliana Michaels

Fa-la-la-la-llama Card by Juliana Michaels | Llama Delivery Stamp Set and Snowfall Stencil by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Fa-la-la-la la and a Llama! 

Today we are sharing an adorable Holiday card by Juliana! She used several of our newest Holiday products to create this fun card. She started out by coloring that cute Llama from our new Llama Delivery Stamp Set in a festive holiday color combo of red, green and teal! She trimmed out the llama using the coordinating Llama Delivery Die Set to add it to her card. Behind the llama is a bunch of cute holly leaves and berries that were cut out using our Pines & Holly Die Set. This is all layered over a panel of kraft paper covered in white snowflakes using our Snowfall Stencil. She cut out that fun teal panel with the scalloped edge and the snowflake panel with the curved dotted edge using the Frames & Flags Die Set. Then she finished off the card with all those "Fa-la-las"  from the Sentiments of the Season Stamp Set white over the bright red banner!

Thanks, Juliana, for the fun Holiday inspiration today! To see more creations by Juliana, visit her over to her blog, 17 Turtles!

A good day for some hot cocoa! 

The weather is getting chilly at NND Headquarters so we are getting warmed up today with this adorable Hot Chocolate card by Larissa! For this fun cozy cocoa card, Larissa used our Cup of Cocoa Stamp Set! This set has a whole bunch of fun mug images that she stamped over the background using black ink. Then she picked the fun Snowflake mug to feature in the center of her card, coloring it a yummy red! She added the "It's a Hot Chocolate kind of day" sentiment from the Cup of Cocoa Stamp Set embossing in white on a little black banner from the Frames & Flags Die Set. Isn't the black and white with the pop of colors super fun!?

Snow Globe Cards by Special Guest Kay Miller



Hello and Happy Monday! Can you believe it's just TWO weeks until Christmas?! Have you completed your Christmas cards yet? If not we have some beautiful inspiration today by our special guest, Kay Miller! She created two lovely snow globe cards that are just perfect for sending Holiday cheer!  
Snow Globe Cards by Special Guest Kay Miller | Snow Globe Scenes Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade
For her first card Kay created this adorable little scene using the row of houses, tree and car stamps from our Snow Globe Scenes Stamp Set. She colored the images and trimmed them out using the coordinating Snow Globe Scenes Die Set. She put all the little pieces inside a snow globe shape that she cut out using our Snow Globe Shaker Die Set! The "merry" die cut was layered on top of the snow globe base and is also part of the Snow Globe Shaker Die Set. She layered this cute little scene on top of a fun background that she inked up using distress inks! So lovely!

For her second card Kay used the same layout and products to create her card but changed the background to a pretty minty green and used some of the other images from the stamp set to create a different scene! Both cards are so pretty and festive!

Advent Calendar Extravaganza with Taheerah Atchia | Santa Kitty card by Jennifer Jackson | Santa Paws Newton Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

I used inktense watercolor pencils and a water brush to color the image and then trimmed it out using the coordinating Santa Paws Newton Die Set. I also colored the little "north pole" image and cut that out. For the card background I used a piece of Kraft colored cardstock and added white snowflakes with embossing paste over our Snowfall Stencil. I love the look of kraft and white together. Then I created a little scene on the bottom by adding a white stitched hill for snow using the Land Borders Die Set. I layered some washi tape and a little strip of red checkered paper along the bottom. For the sentiment, I stamped the Here comes Santa Paws" sentiment from the Santa Paws Newton Stamp Set onto a strip of black cardstock, embossing it in white. Then I layered the kitty image over the top of everything, raising him up a bit with some foam tape! Hope you enjoyed this card today!
