Newton's Nook Designs October Release - Beautiful Baubles + Coordinating Die and Pines & Holly Die

Welcome back for day two of Newton's Nook Designs holiday release! Today we're showcasing the Beautiful Baubles stamp and coordinating die set and the Pines & Holly die set. Both of these sets are so versatile and you can either use them separately or together to make really fun holiday-themed cards!
The first card I made features the Beautiful Baubles stamp and coordinating die set. I colored the ornaments with Copic Markers and then cut them out with the coordinating dies. I applied a thick coat of glossy accents to give them a fun dimensional look, like real ornaments! While the glossy accents dried, I die cut a piece of Sea Glass card stock using an A2-sized stitched rectangle die. I inked up the colored card stock with Peacock Feathers distress ink and Sea Glass dye ink. I recently saw Yana do this in one of her recent YouTube videos and thought it was such a great idea! It was a real time saver and made it super easy to get a nice solid inked background without all of the extra effort. I then die cut a piece of white card stuck using a scalloped border die and heat embossed the sentiment in metallic silver. Once my ornaments were dry, I used metallic twine to adhere them to the white panel to make it look like they were hanging. To finish the card, I added sparkling clear and metallic silver sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

My second card showcases the Pines & Holly die set. I created a wreath using one of the leafy dies and cut the other elements from colored card stock. I used mini glue dots (the ones I use for sequins) to adhere all of the small die cut pieces onto a white panel. Using the glue dots made it so much easier to position the small pieces and it also gave me enough wiggle room to adjust as needed.  I white heat embossed one of the sentiments from the Beautiful Baubles set on black card stock. To dress up the wreath, I added 4mm and 6mm metallic red sequins from the Pretty Pink Posh Classic Christmas sequin mixes. For the card base, I used a straight scalloped border to die cut the edges of a red card base. And to finish the card, I added some black and white twine to the top of the focal panel.
