Newton's Nook Designs Holiday Release Day 2

and the holiday fun continues! 

welcome to day 2 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 Holiday Hounds, so attention all you dog lovers!! this set is soooooo adorable!! i think 'dachshund through the snow' is literally the best christmas pun ever!! 
this set is 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:
  


i totally saw that pup in a stocking and i HAD to make the word 'JOY'! it was too perfect!! 
i paper pieced the little fella and then popped up the head and paw for some dimension. i also added the santa hat and some super festive (read: glittery!) thickers to finish the sentiment.


and the background! i heat embossed in clear that little bone image from the set to add a little interest to the card without being too busy! and then i popped up that panel and added some matching green glitter tape  around the middle of the card. fun!

oh, and my second card...i really love it!


i paper pieced the puppy again, and popped him up over some white polka dotten vellum that i die cut into rolling hills. i added a very little bit of the iced spruce distress ink to make the sentiment POP!


the sentiment was heat embossed with silver pearl WOW embossing powder onto the vellum, and finally i added some splatters of perfect pearls to the background! isn't this so sweet!! and of course, it uses my FAVORITE senitment from the set!
