It's never too early for Christmas - Guest Designing for Newton's Nook!

by - September 07, 2020


Hello everyone, 

I am excited to be guest designing for Newton's Nook for the month of September! Thank you Samantha for giving me this wonderful opportunity! I have four cards with totally different techniques and styles lined up for you this month! If you have been following me for a while, you would know that I don't have a signature style. I like mixing up things and trying to come up with creative ways to use my stash. I am a huge fan of Newton's Nook products as they are versatile and super cute! 

My first card uses some good old distress ink blending scene for Christmas. Here is how I put this together:
  • I distress inked my panel using Mermaid Lagoon and Cracked Pistachio. I then tried to create a snow texture by adding water and white ink splatters. 

  • I cut the winter scene landscape using my silhouette cameo but you can use a similar die of your choice.
  • I colored the images from All Aboard for Christmas using my alcohol ink markers. I like to add darker tones to my images using color pencils later on. 
  • After assembling the card, I heat embossed a sentiment on teal cardstock using white embossing powder. (PS: this actually covers up a snafu! I tried embossing directly on to the background but it didn't stand out as much and wasn't aligned properly.)
  • Voila! You are done :) 
I hope you liked this card and I can't wait to be back next week to share another style!
