Instructions:

1. First you stamp out your images for your scene. I used Fireside Friends and a mice from Santa Paws Newton. The sentiment is from Sentiments of the Season.

2. Than you draw a horizontal line which best represents the dividing line between the floor and the wall. After this you put a pencil point somewhere in the center. This point will be your viewpoint. Measure on the bottom points that are evenly spaced. Connect these points to your central point.

3. To make your perspective better you draw now horizontal lines. Be sure you space the lines more closer to each other, than below.

4. Color your tiles. First I colored the darker tiles with Copic Markers C07, C05 and C04

5. Then color the lighter tiles. The Copic markers I used for these are C03, C02, C0.

6. The last thing to do is to create your wallpaper. I simply covered the images and tiles with post it notes and distress inked my background. After the base was finished I did the same thing but with the Waves Stencil.

Winter Fox Card by Samantha Mann

Winter Fox Card by Samantha Mann | Fox Hollow and Whispering Pines Stamp Sets by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

Sweet Winter Fox!

Today Samantha created an adorable winter scene by combining several different stamp sets! She started our with that cute little fox from our Fox Hollow stamp set. She colored that fox in  beautifull shades of orange and added a blue striped scarf before fussy cutting him out to add to her card. On her card base she created a line of pine trees using trees from our Whispering Pines Stamp Set and added some blue sky behind them. Then she stamped the long sentiment from our new Sentiments of the Season Stamp Set. This sentiment is so great because it can be used either on the front of a card or on the inside too! The tiny stripe of black and white washi tape on the side of the card is the perfect finishing touch too!

Thank you Samantha for the fun card today! To say hello to Samantha and see more of her beautiful creations, you can visit Samantha's Blog, Sam's Scrap Candy!

Merry Christmas Card by November Guest Designer Kelly Latelova

 Hello Crafters! 

Whoop! Whoop! 

Recently, we had our first snow fall here in the great OH-IO and even though we haven't passed Thanksgiving I can already feel myself starting to get excited for Christmas! 
It may or may not have something to do with the fact that I have a four year old. 

I thought I loved Christmas and then I had my peanut butter. 
Man, there are few things better than watching a kid on Christmas morning. 
Talk about sheer Joy :)

Speaking of joyful things, do you know what else makes me happy?
Rainbows. 
If they're paired with black and white it's even better. 

About a month ago I saw a card from Newton's Own Samantha Mann and fell in love. You can see her post here. 

 

I just adore the simple layout with the glittery texture and those rainbow houses. 
**Swoon** am I right?  
Plus, I love how she utilized the swoop of the houses as a design element. 

I was so inspired by her card I decided to do my own take on it.

I decided to flip flop the colors because I wanted there to be that black and white contrast with my rainbow colors. 
Which honestly don't even look rainbow haha. 
All my blue/green is covered up by the sentiment. 
Meh, I like pink and purple too :)

Merry Christmas Card by November Guest Designer Kelly Latelova | Snow Globe Scenes and Sentiments of the Season Stamp Sets by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I wanted that feel of glittery texture Sam had on her card so I chose to try out Glimmer Paste with my stencil. In real life it's super glittery even though it looks subtle in the photos. 
Unfortunately, I couldn't make my camera capture it. 

You can see the whole card come to life in the video!
See there really is blue and green in it lol
It was worth it to add in the black and white. I always feel like that makes the background colors POP and I love it. 


I hope you're inspired  to give one of these techniques a try.
