Newton's Nook Designs - November Guest Designer, Ashley Ebben
Hi there! My name is Ashley Ebben, and I live near St. Louis, Missouri with my husband, daughter, our two dogs and sassy ragdoll cat. I’m a stay-at-home mom to my three year old daughter who is just the best, toddler tantrums not withstanding ;) Naptime is my craft time! I started as a scrapbooker, but I am terrible at remembering to take and print pictures, so a few years ago I gave cardmaking a try and was instantly hooked. I especially adore ink blending – turning a white piece of cardstock into a colorful background is simply magical to me. I am so happy to be joining Newton's Nook this month and look forward to sharing my creations using their adorable animals with you all!

Hello everyone! I am so happy to be sharing my first card with you as a guest designer for Newton's Nook! I decided to use my absolute favorite stamp from the new release - Holiday Post! I just love how 
cute Newton looks standing on top of his doggy friend to send some happy mail!

I started by stamping the main image from Holiday Post in Copic friendly black ink onto white cardstock. I also stamped a little mouse from Santa Paws Newton. I thought he fit perfectly with the Holiday Post scene, and I just can't resist mixing stamp sets together! I colored both images with Copic markers then fussy cut them out.

For the background, I die cut a stitched circle from white cardstock and blended a bit of Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide on the bottom. I stamped the snowflakes from Holiday Post in light gray ink, then adhered the circle to some light blue cardstock. I cut the whole piece with a stitched rectangle die, cutting off one side of the circle to make a semicircle backdrop for my image. Then I added the rectangle to a base of plaid patterned paper that matched my inking.

I attached my colored images to the card with foam tape for dimension, then stamped a sentiment from Holiday Post in black ink. To finish, I added some snowflake shaped sequins and iridescent gems around the card for a bit of sparkle and extra interest.
 
Thank you so much for stopping by!
