Newton's Nook Designs Holiday Release - newton's holiday mischief

it's a great monday!
newton's nook is celebrating their october release and it's amazing!!! full of christmas cheer and unexpected holiday goodies!!! :)




today's set features newton up to some of his old antics and it's all about the christmas spirit! i love this set, and it will be ready for purchase october 18th here! :)
both cards i created are chocked full of CAS christmas cheer!

my first card was inspiried by all of those beautiful christmas wreaths that people like to hang from their doors! 



i paper pieced all of the images and then popped them up for dimension onto that awesome woodgrain patterned paper!



i even flocked the cat's belly - how's that for fun!! then i just added the tiniest bit of glitter from the wink of stella pen to the berries in the wreath and holly at the bottom. i finised off the card with glossy accents over the berries too, as well as the sweet little nose! :)

my next card is one of my favorites! i sewed along the edges of the card and then popped up that panel over some really festive red and polka dotted paper! then i sprayed some studio calico shine spray over a mask to add a subtle amount of interest while still keeping it nice and clean and simple.


i colored the kitten and all of those lights with copics and CUT OUT EACH one!!!! lol!! i know...why? apparently i like to complicate things! anyway, the cat is popped up and then i added some glossy accents to tall of the lights and added a few clear sparkle embellishments. LOVE this card!!



isn't is to sweet! this is an awesome set!!

  7. These are terrific! I love little paper pieced newton dangling from the paper pieced wreath against the woodgrain background, and the sparkly bakground behind Newton all tangled up in holiday lights (I can't believe you cut out each one individually - LOVE the gloss you added to them! Perfect!)
