Newton's Nook Designs November Release - Fireside Friends & Sweater Weather

Welcome back! Today is the second day of Newton's Nook Designs November release and we're showcasing TWO new sets! The first set is Fireside Friends. This is seriously such a sweet image and makes the perfect focal point!

I started off by die cutting a piece of smooth white card stock using a stitched square die. Since this is pretty large and detailed stamp, I used my mini MISTI to stamp the image a few times. I colored the image with Copic Markers and also colored the wood floor by hand as well. I cut a piece of red and olive card stock using a stitched rectangle die and then cut the edges with a small scalloped border die to give the edges a "ruffled" look. I white heat embossed the sentiment onto the red panel and the using pattern paper for the background.

The second set we're showcasing is the Sweater Weather stamp and coordinating die set. The critters in this set are seriously just the cutest! I love that you can use this beyond the holidays and throughout winter.
I decided to keep my card clean and simple to really showcase the critters. I colored the images with Copic Markers and then cut them out using the coordinating dies. For some added interest, I applied liquid applique to the puffs of the hats. I masked off a hill on a white card panel and lightly inked the background with Mermaid Lagoon, Broken China distress inks and Sea Glass dye ink. To finish the card, I generously applied clear wink of stella glitter to the sweaters and hats.
