Newton's Nook Designs Holiday Release - Fox Hollow + Die

hi hi hi!
i am so excited for this week!
it's a BIG week!!

today is day 1 of the Newton's Nook Designs Holiday release!! woo!!


today, the whole DT is showcasing the freaking AMAZING Fox Hollow stamp and coordinating die set!! ! i LOVE this set! honestly - this is one of my new favorite sets EVER! it's SO cute and sweet and magical!!
you can totally use this to scrapbook, create a project life type spread, gift tags and, of course, cards! all of the new sets will be available for purchase on October 16th, right here!

for my first card, i really wanted to use that pine tree branch image and make it a wreath!


i stamped out the branch multiple times in Peacock Feathers, Mowed Lawn, Shabby Shutters, Twisted Citron and Cracked Pistachio Distress Inks! those colors together...LOVE! then i die cut them out and attached them to my card base in a circular pattern! 


the fox, oh the fox! so cute! i water colored him up with Distress Markers and then popped him up on top of the wreath! oh, and i forgot to mention that i stitched around the wreath a few times with my sewing machine! love that added texture! 

my second card also features an adorably water colored fox!


first i used Distress Inks and blended the background to create a loose interpretation of a mountain overlooking the sky! i repeat: a super loose interpretation! lol!


and then because i can't help myself, i also added water drops to the blended background! ha! i added some heat embossed snowflakes to the sky, too!
