Newton's Nook Designs - Holiday Release Day 1

yay!! i have good news for you, on this monday morning:

it's the start of Newton's Nook Designs Holiday Release!! and let me tell you...these 5 (yes, 5!!!) sets are incredible! i had so much fun with them, i made two cards for each day this week!!

today's set is called Winston's Home for Christmas. and i just LOVE these little moments that are shown! they are perfect for scrapbooking your holiday memories, doing a project life type spread, gift tags and, of course, cards!! all of the new sets will be available for purchase on October 17th, right here!

ok, here's my first card :


so fun! i used a city map stencil in gold (hello! gold and christmas are perfect together, right?) and then added a layer of vellum on top! the image was colored with copics, and then i heat embossed the sentiment in black, so it really POPs!! 


i also added a wood veneer to the front of the car and added some stickles and glossy accents! 

my second card is super fabulous!


i colored winston in with copics and stamped the setniment onto a wood veneer! the base of the card was sprayed with frost and shimmer so it is super sparkly (and not just plain white!). i think shimmer is totally needed with holiday cards!


i tied a red ribbon around the text cardstock and added a few wood veneer dots, and called it a day!
