Newton's Nook Designs Holiday Release - Day 4

do we have any newton fans out there?!

i know we do! and today is day 4 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 Newton’s Curious Christmas!! it's AMAZING! and hilarious, and awesome!! newton's certainly up to his old antics and i couldn't LOVE IT MORE! ha ha!

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 decided to keep it clean and simple! i used some transluscent embossing paste and a confetti stencil from Studio Calico, that i really think can give off that 'bokeh' effect, slightly! :)


i colored the image in with copcics and then popped it up for dimenstion! then i used a strip of woodgrain paper for the sentiment, which was heat embossed (awesome sentiment!) and popped up the whole panel for extra dimension! :) i used wink of stella and glossy accents on the ornaments, too! how could i resist!?

for my second card, i went with the non-traditional christmas colors!


i used this AMAZING patterned paper (which is actually from a halloween collection!) and heat embossed in clear some more of the stars from the set! i thought it added a little extra something! :)


newton and the moon (and santa and his sleigh!) were heat embossed in black onto watercolor paper! i used my distress markers to color in the scene and then popped it all up onto some gold thread! 
the sentiment banner was distressed to match the moon! and i just happened to have the PERFECT complimenting star washi!! i think this is my favorite card of the bunch! 
love love love!!!!
