Deck the Halls with Inky Paws! Newton's Nook Designs Holiday Blog Hop


Welcome to the 2015 'Deck the Halls with Inky Paws' Blog Hop!  This is when all of us on the Newton's Nook Designs Team, along with a few special guests, get to get our paws inky and show off how much we love NND and inspire you with some holiday themed creations.

As an extra bonus this year, Jen is releasing a bonus set' Whispering Pines' - PURR-fect for creating cards that make it look like you painstakingly watercolored for hours!


I had SO much fun playing with this set, and created this rustic looking card for your viewing pleasure:

Snowy Scene card created by Crafty Math Chick | Whispering Pines by Newton's Nook Designs

I thought this woodgrain patterned paper from My Mind's Eye was prefect for creating a rustic backdrop.  I stamped the kitty in orange (after all, Newton is a ginger kitty!) and the pup in Chocolate chip.  I stamped the trees in Handsome Hunter and stamped the falling snow image over them with white craft ink.  Then I used a glue pen and sprinkled white flock all over - the cool thing?  Some of the flock stuck to the white craft ink over the trees enhancing the snowy effect - I love it!  I hope you do too!

Since this is a snowy scene I am also entering this card in Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Challenge: Let It Snow.
