Newton’s Nook Designs Holiday Release – Day 3

Hello friends and welcome to Day 3 of the Newton’s Nook holiday release!

All new products for this release will be available for purchase on Friday October 15th!

My first project uses the new Christmas Cocktails stamp set and coordinating dies:

This one also brings in paper from the new Meowy Christmas paper pad:

I may (or may not) have chosen my three favorite cocktails to use on this card! I kind of imaged them sitting together during a holiday party having been set down on a festive table cloth – do you see it?

I decided to use one of the tone on tone papers to brighten up the background rather than just leaving it white. I then added a rectangle from the Frames and Flags Die Set. I cut a piece of the holly and sprigs paper from the same shape but trimmed it down to a little less than half it’s size. This way it still has the stitched detail along the edges.

I had cut a red scalloped rectangle from the same set two with the plans of layering them but it was a little too much red for me so instead I just trimmed an edge to tuck behind one side. Just the right amount of red!

Next up is Dairy Christmas and if there was a set in this release that demanded a scene – this was it!

I started by lightly blending pale blue ink along the top of the card and adding some snowflakes from the Holiday Home set to the sky. I cut solid white cardstock using the Land Borders Die Set to add along the bottom and tucked a fence cut from the Fence Die Set under it.

All the scene needed was our colored and die cut animal images and the perfectly punny sentiment centered right along the bottom!

  2. I love how the drinks look like they are on a tablecloth in
    the design of holly. Great design! And so is the 2nd card –
    a really darling scene and great coloring on both.
