Newton's Nook Designs Holiday Release - Snow Day

what an exciting day! 
today is the first day we're celebrating newton's nook november release!

the set we're featuring today is called snow day and it's SOOO much fun!! think of all your favorite outside winter activities, plus critters!!! you can't lose! :) this new set will be ready for purchase november 15th here! :)

my first card is a lovely winter scene! :) i just HAD to use that snow bear image!! TOOOO cute!! all of the images were paper pieced and i just had to make the little bear's nose a light beige, like his nose was sticking out of the snowman! lol! so fun! 

both image were popped up for dimension. the sentiment was stamped with some staz-on ink onto the wood veneer banner - doesn't it look like that little bird is trying so hard to stay in the air while holding the sentiment?! love it - it totally makes me giggle! i also heat embossed, in white, the beautiful snowflakes from this set! (some of the best little snowflake images ever, i think!) :)

my next card, is really fun!! (and perhaps my favorite from the whole release!)
i used the amazing slider card tutorial from the NND blog (you can find it here) and created this FUN, ice skating penguin card!

the penguin was also paper pieced and the sentiment was created with combining the sentiments from this set and also winged wishes. i also put a few snowflakes from this set onto the background of the card in a warm grey ink. LOVE how that looks! 

and here's a little video showing the penguin in action! it's so fun!! :)
