Newton's Nook Designs Holiday Release - Day 5

well, we made it! RELEASE DAY!! and the FINAL set reveal, too!

it's day 5 of Newton's Nook Designs Holiday Release!! and let me tell you...these 5 (yes, 5!!!) sets are incredible! i had so much fun with them, i made two cards for each day this week!!

today's set is called Christmas Delivery! and it's a mini set, but it's DARLING!! there is so much you can do with this little scene!

this set is perfect for scrapbooking your holiday memories, doing a project life type spread, gift tags and, of course, cards!! all of the new sets will be available for purchase on October 17th, right here!

ok, here's my first card:

i guess you could say i was feeling nostalgic when i created this card! ha ha! i colored in the image with tons of distress marker browns! i added some details to the presents and a tiny bit of shading, but mostly it was light.

i used the INCREDIBLE star background stencil and gold embossing pate for the stars! i used some fun map paper for the background and distressed the edges first. the sled was poppped up for dimension and i think this little scene is so sweet to remember Christmas's past! 

my second card is the opposite!

i used copic coloring on the image and popped the whole thing up for dimension! i LOOOOOVE it! the 'world' is from some patterned paper, and i just trimmed along it to create the sense that these two little critters were helping santa deliver presents! love it!

i also added extra details to the packages with my white gel pen! so easy to do!
