Newton's Nook Designs Holiday Release - Holiday Smooches

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 this adorable and sweet Holiday Smooches stamp set! oh, i just love how sweet and adorable this is! 
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 decided to do a little aurora borealis in the sky for the cute polar bear couple!!

aww!! love it, right! ha! i used some acrylic paint and a credit card and just squee-geed it onto the background! so fun!!

i colored those ADORABLE bears with copics and popped them up on a few snowy vellum hills! and that's one of my favorite images from the whole set!

my second card is fun and totally different! 

i colored those CUTE CUTE CUTE seals with copics, and popped them up over a super fun, green water colored background! i used Distress Inks (of course) to get the look, using Cracked Pistachio and Twisted Citron!

then i used some washi tape to create a border about an inch and a half in and stamped the sentiment repeatedly along the side! when i removed the washi tape - bam! it was SO fun!
