Shopping Card by Amanda Wilcox | Main Street Christmas and Christmas Haul Stamp Sets by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Nailed It!

It's that time of year, when there is SO MUCH to accomplish! Whether you are almost done or just starting, we hope this card by Amanda will inspire you! She used the image of the adorable girl with her arms filled with christmas gifts and a wreath from our Christmas Haul Stamp Set. She colored the image in a fun holiday color combo and cut it out using the coordinating Christmas Haul Die Set.

To set the scene, she created a holiday city street in the background using our Main Street Christmas Stamp Set and embossing the image in white over a kraft colored background. She also added lots of snow flakes to the sky, also from the Main Street Christmas Stamp Set.  Then, she added a snow hill along the bottom, cutting it out with our Land Borders Die Set.  For the sentiment she used "nailed it!" from the Christmas Haul Stamp Set, stamped onto a banner that was cut out using our Banner Trio Die Set

Here is a close-up so you can see the details. Isn't the added gloss on those gifts gorgeous?

Thanksgiving Card by Jennifer Jackson | Newton's Thanksgiving Stamp Set and Pumpkin Patch Stencil by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook
I did want to take time to share a card today as well! To make this funny Thanksgiving card, I started with the images of the the kitty with the full belly  and the kitty with a pie from our Newton's Thanksgiving Stamp Set. I colored the images to look like our kitties, Toulouse and Marlowe,  using copic markers. Once the images were colored, I cut them out with the coordinating Newton's Thanksgiving Die Set. I layered the two kitties onto a rounded stitched square, cut out using our Frames Squared Die Set. I added the sentiment, "There's always room for pie" from the Newton's Thanksgiving Stamp Set. So fitting for Thanksgiving, don't you think!?

For the card background I stenciled a panel of orange cardstock with pumpkins using our Pumpkin Patch Stencil. This panel was cut out with a postage edge using our  Framework Die Set.  I adhered it all together and added some orange bakers twine to finish it off! 

I hope you enjoyed this card today! If you're here to find out about our sale this weekend, that's up next!

Peace, Love & Belly Rubs Card by November Guest Designer Ashley Ebben


Hello friends! It's Ashley with a new guest post for you all today! I completely fell in love with the belly rubs sentiment from Christmas Puppies and had to use it for a card! One of my dogs can never get enough belly rubs, so it makes me think of her!


I started by stamping the puppy and hat from Christmas Puppies on white cardstock with black Copic friendly ink. I stamped the hat first, then masked it before stamping the puppy so I could keep it all one layer. I colored the image with Copics and added a few highlights with a white gel pen. I stamped my belly rubs sentiment underneath with red and green inks for an extra Christmasy feel. I stamped the holly leaves with black so I could color them with green Copics to match the green on my puppy image.


I trimmed an inch off the white cardstock, so that my colored piece was 5 1/2" x 3 1/4". I wrapped some twine around the bottom three times and tied a tiny bow. I found a cute holly print patterned paper in my stash that matched the holly on my sentiment and cut it to A2 size. I added my stamped piece to the top with foam tape to keep the twine in place and to prevent wrinkles.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
