Newton's Nook Designs November Release - Winter Tails

**this is my 2nd post today - to see my Very Fawny Holiday Week card, scroll down, or click here!** 

what an awesome week, this is going to be!

to start, today is the first day of Newton's Nook's November Release!






today, the whole DT is showcasing the new, super FUN and playful, Winter Tails set!! i just LOVE these little critters, caught in the midst of snow agony! ha ha!! they are perfect for scrapbooking your winter memories, doing a project life type spread, gift tags and, of course, cards!! all of the new sets will be available for purchase on November 12th, right here!

ok, here's my first card :


he he he!!
that poor little bunny!! i paper pieced him and the shovel and then added some shading with my copics! then i used this snow marker thing...all you do is color in the area you want to add 'snow' and then heat set it with your heat tool! and then it magically pops up to make the snow! it's awesome! i've had it for years, and i love pulling it out every winter!



i also used the snowflakes from the set to create the blizzardy background by heat embossing them over watercolored background! the background was watercolored with tumbled glass distress ink, and then when i t dried, i flicked some water on top! :)

my second card was also lots of fun to make!



i used distress inks for the sky, but it's actually the inside of the card!! i cut down the front of the card, and put newton on top! I colored the bird and newton with copics and then added some more 'snow' to the front of the card with that awesome bumpy snow border!


when the card opens, it's the sky background, that fades to white towards the bottom of the card! so fun!
