Newton's Nook Designs Holiday Release - SEA-son's Greetings

today is last day showing off newton's nook holiday release!

and this set it so cool!! it's nautical and christmas and FUN!
i think this first card may be my favorite of all my cards this week! 

i created that background by heat embossing a woodgrain pattern onto white cardstock and then distressing it with peacock feathers! then i used my border punch to create the waves! SO fun! and the perfect compliment to that cute little whale!!

i colored the whale with copics and then popped him up for some extra fun! the sentiment was stamped with staz-on ink onto the wood veneer speech bubble! then i added a few wood veneer snowflakes too! love this card!!

my last card for this release features my favorite sentiment from this set!! it's so FUN!! ha ha!!

i thought it would be fun to stamp the boat and present images onto some washi tape - trying out some new uses, what do you think? i think it needs work, but i like it!

i added some twine to connect down to that fun little anchor! the whole panel was popped up and then i added some peppermint striped washi tape to the sides! i also added some wink of stella glitter to the ribbons of the presents!

  1. What a phenomenally creative ocean card the embossed waves! Both cards are whaley cute ;)

  2. Adorable cards - and I'll echo MiamiKel - "whaley, whaley cute!" You've showcased these darling images wonderfully!!

  3. I really like the curve you gave to the ocean that cute whale is swimming in - it reminds me of a porthole on a ship or maybe even a fishbowl (not that you'd find a whale in a fish bowl of course, LOL!) And the twine threaded through the anchor looks very cool as well.

  4. lovely stamp set, love the cards ideas for today also thank you for sharing them with us.

  5. You don't usually put fish and water themes together with Christmas but it works really well. Great cards.

  6. Cute cards. I really like the whale. I looks like he's in a giant fishbowl!

  7. Both your cards are cute and clever. :-)

  8. Both of these cards are so cute!!! Great job :)

  9. Both of these are so creative! I love the woodgrain water on both!

  10. Oh such fun cards! Love the twine/rope attached to the anchor!

  11. omg! the boat of presents...and the're awesome! so talented!
