Newton's Nook Designs November Release - Simply Seasonal

today is day 1 of the Newton's Nook Designs November Release! woo!!

today, the whole DT is showcasing the super awesome Jolly Tags stamp and coordinating die set!! you'll see just how much fun these tags are to create with!! they're awesome!
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 November 13th, right here!

for my first card, i almost made a one layer!

unheard of, i know!! ha!
I used the tree image and stamped in various blues and greens of Distress inks.
LOVE creating my own patterned paper that way!

then i stamped the greeting by combining multiple phrases from the set! easy peasy!! LOOOOVE that saying too! it's perfect for Christmas cards!!

my second card has a little more pizzazz! lol!

i used two different Heidi Color Shine spray mists to create the background (a teal and a mint green!).
once it was dry, i used a scripty stencil and some white embossing paste to add the texture! soooo pretty!

the tag was created by repeating the phrase 'happy holiday's' in a grey ink, then heat embossing in black the bold happy on some vellum! i fussy cut it out and layered it on top! that gold sparkly ribbon on the tag is the icing on the cake!
