Hello! Today I'm excited to be participating in the Newton's Nook Designs - Deck the Halls with Inky Paws Blog Hop!
I've created two cards using the sweet Newton's Nook Designs stamp set, Holiday Tweets.
For my first card, I used a white card base along with some pure poppy cardstock and scrap pieces of My Mind's Eye designer paper for my background and green banner. I stamped my sentiment onto a white cardstock banner and tucked it under the edge of the vertical red banner. I used one of the larger images from the Holiday Tweets set and colored it using Copic markers. Once my coloring was done, I die cut my image using a square die and matted it in pure poppy cardstock and adhered it with foam tape to my card base. To finish off my card, on a piece of scrap white cardstock I stamped the holly image from the set, colored it with Copic markers and fussy cut the image out and added it to the top left corner of my main image. I also used a silver glitter pen to color in the tops of the ornaments and added little dots of silver in and around the image and used some glossy accents on all of the red berries (see close up photo below).
For my second card, I decided to highlight this darling nest with birds image from the stamp set. I die cut a scallop circle from pure poppy cardstock for my card base, added a mat of white cardstock and some polka dot My Mind's Eye designer paper. Next I stamped my image along with the Merry Christmas sentiment and colored them with Copic markers. Then I die cut my image using a circle die and matted it with cardstock and adhered it to my card base using foam tape. I also, like my first card, stamped the holly separately and colored and cut it out to attach to my main image. For a touch of sparkle, I added some silver glitter gems on my card base, some silver glitter pen to the present in the nest and some glossy accent to the berries in the holly.
