a mixed media Christmas

it's wednesday - halfway through another work week for me! :)

today i have a cute cute cute card up on the Newton's Nook Designs blog! i used the newly release Fox Hollow stamp and die set! but, as much i want to use those cute little foxes on EVERYTHING, i decided to make a card with the tree image!

first i die cut the tree out twice from a post it note, then i attached them to my card! i very carefully watercolored with Distress Inks around the post it note trees! once it was dry, i peeled up the masks! then i stamped and heat embossed in white the tree image itself! LOVE how subtle that is!

i stamped the sentiment and snowflakes in white for some contrast ( LOVE!) and then added some black and white polka dot washi tape to the side! i couldn't resist adding some white polka dots to the card with my embossing paste and stencil! 

i really LOOOOOVE how this came out!
i hope it made you smile and maybe look at those smaller scene building elements in a stamp set with a new perspective! 


  1. Love this technique! Such a fun idea and executed beautifully! Love the colors you used with the black snowflakes too!!

  2. Such a great way to use the other images included in the set. Your card is beautiful!


thank you SO much for taking the time to comment! just like that, you made my day! :D
