Deck the Halls with Inky Paws 2018 Blog Hop

I am so excited for today!


today we're hopping along, and feeling the Christmas spirit with Newton's Nook and the Deck the Halls with Inky Paws blog hop!


today, I combined some new and old products for my card!


and I just LOVE how it came out!
I die cut the ornament shape using the Ornament Shaker Die Set and then ink blended with Peacock Feathers, Blueprint Sketch and Back soot! The ornament hanger was colored with Mustard Seed!


then I stamped the palm tree image from Sun Soaked Christmas, colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and then fussy cut the images out! I also stamped the image onto the ornament itself and glued on the images!

lastly, I used the Petite Snow Stencil and some white embossing paste for some texture in the background!

happy Monday!
let's start this week (and new month!) off with a NEW challenge over at the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge blog!


this time, put on your jingle bells and light the menorah! we want to see your holiday cards! 




yay!
I loooooove making Christmas cards, and so I had a blast making this reindeer games inspired card!


I just love all of the deer images that Lawn Fawn has! for my card, I combined the images from Toboggan Together and Say What? Christmas Critters stamp sets! I colored the images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and then fussy cut out the images! 


I used Mowed Lawn, Twisted Citron and Black Soot to create the background with Distress Ink blending! then I splattered some water and white acrylic paint on the background for a snowy look!
lastly, I heat embossed the sentiment onto a strip of black cardstock! 

I really can't WAIT for you to play along! you could win a $25 gift certificate to Lawn Fawn!!!!

choo-choo christmas wishes

hello again!

today I'm so happy to share this cute, Christmas-y scene with you that is up on the Newton's Nook blog, too!


I used the adorable All Aboard for Christmas stamp set and coordinating dies to set the scene! I just love those little train images! 
I colored them in with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and they just POP against that light grey background.


I then used the Starfield Stencil with some white embossing paste to add the texture to the background! the hills were created with some white cardstock and the Land Borders die set

I finished off the card with some Crystal Stickles, and I really LOOOOOVE how they add to the whimsy and Christmas feeling of the card! 

be sure to check out the card on the Newton's Nook Designs blog, too!
enjoy!

heart-shaped card for warm winter wishes!

hello!
happy Wednesday, and thank you for stopping by!
today I have a cute little shaped card up on the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge blog!


eeeep!
I love how this little scene turned out! 
I used the Outside In Stitched Heart Stackables dies to create the shape of the card! 
then I used Wilted Violet and Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide Inks for the sky! then I used Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Ink for the Stitched Hillside Borders dies to crete the snowy hills! eeeep! love them!
I splattered water and white acrylic ink over everything to add to the snowy scene!


the sentiment and little critter are from the Winter Alpaca stamp set! looove him!
and the trees are from the Winter Village stamp set! I even added some Crystal Stickles to the trees for a little sparkle! 

so that's my card! 
be sure to check it out on the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge blog, and to play along with the shaped card challenge
