I'm so excited to be today's featured guest for DECK THE HALLS WITH INKY PAWS week over at Newton's Nook Designs! The week of fun began on Monday and concludes with a big blog hop and prizes on Friday. Be sure to tune in to the Newton's Nook blog each day this week so you won't miss a thing!
My first card features WINTER TAILS. I knew I could have lots of fun making piles and piles of snow.
Hate snow? "Make it stop" is the perfect sentiment. Love snow? Switch out for "let it snow."
I stamped the snowy hills, added some Copic shadows and tiny dots of glitter, then embellished with sequins and wood veneer snowflakes.
My next card features the sweet kitty, Newton, playing with a strand of Christmas lights. This image is from NEWTON'S HOLIDAY MISCHIEF.
I wanted to give the impression that Newton is either getting ready to put the lights on the tree or has mischievously pulled them off the tree. His head is stamped a second time, trimmed out, and popped up in front of the tree (which I cut with my Silhouette), so that he looks almost like he's crawling under the tree.
A little Copic shadowing grounds the scene. I added clear glaze to the lights for extra shine.
I hope you've enjoyed my Newton's Nook creations today. Thanks for visiting! And thank you, Jennifer Jackson, for inviting me to join you this week!
