Beautiful Holiday Wreath Card by Lydia

Beautiful Holiday Wreath Card by Lydia for Newton's Nook Designs | Falling into Autumn Stamp Set

Beautiful Wreath by Lydia!

Today I'm sharing this really awesome leaf card by Lydia!  Lydia used the small bold leaf stamp from the Falling into Autumn stamp set.  She stamped all those pretty leaves overlapping in a circle to create a fun and festive wreath. Then she added on red dots with copic markers. Such a fun idea! The sentiment "be merry" and the little holly leaf are from the Christmas Delivery set and they add just the perfect finishing touch along with some gold splatters! To see more projects by Lydia, make sure to visit her blog, Lydia Evans Design!

Meowy Christmas Card!

Meowy Christmas Card by Jennifer Jackson | Newton's Nook Designs | Newton's Curious Christmas Stamp Set

Meowy Christmas! 

Today I'm sharing this card I created with our Newton's Curious Christmas stamp set. I stamped the image of Newton and the snowman onto watercolor paper and colored it with Distress Markers. I love the vibrant watercolor look you can get with these markers! Then I added the "meowy christmas" sentiment from Newton's Holiday Mischief stamp set. 

For the background I used a sweater print stencil and some embossing paste over kraft cardstock. To color the embossing paste I squished a bit of color from the ink pad onto my work surface and then mixed in a bit of embossing paste with it. I made purple and blue to match the coloring on the image. I LOVE how this turned out - and it was so fun to make!

BEARY Merry Christmas Card!

BEARY Merry Christmas Card by Jennifer Jackson | Winston's Home for Christmas | Bear Stamp set by Newton's Nook designs

A "BEARY" cute Christmas Card! 

Hello & Happy Friday! I'm always SO glad when it's Friday - and this Friday is even more exciting since I'm packing up to go on a girls "craft" weekend! YAY! 

I'm also excited to share this super cute Winston card with you today! I have been having so much fun with watercolor lately. I watercolored this bear  with the Christmas tree from our Winston's Home for Christmas set and then fussy cut him out to add him to the card. To be honest, I wasn't PLANNING on fussy cutting him out but the first time I stamped the sentiment I smudged it so I decided I'd have to cut him out so my image wasn't wasted!! Does that ever happen to anyone else? I added him onto a piece of white cardstock - on which I had carefully stamped the "have a beary merry christmas" sentiment without smudging this time!  Then I added some lace ribbon and wooden star embellishments! So pretty! And since he's wearing a sweater, I thought it would be appropriate to use this cute sweater paper as a backdrop!
