Happy day 3 of the Holiday Release from Newton’s Nook Designs.  And yes, it is also Freshly Made Sketches day.  So I combined two of my favorite things into one post!  This holiday release from Newton’s Nook is going to continue to amazing you as, yet again, we have TWO stamps to share with you.

FMS309 by Jen Timko | Stylish Stockings Stamp Set and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Be Merry DSP by Stampin' UpI am going to start with the Stylish Stockings Stamp Set and the coordinating dies since I used it with the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week.  I love the sweet designs on these little stockings and the adorable stitched details for them.  I stamped them using Altenew’s Ruby Red ink and just look at how those tiny details show perfectly.  All I had to do was stamp the sentiment on a stitched circle and add some festive patterned paper.  Stamps like this make your holiday cards easy to reproduce and such fun to make!

Reindeer Chalk Board by Jen Timko | Reindeer Roll Call Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs, Corrugated Paper, Chalk BoardNext up is Reindeer Roll Call.  What an awesome idea this stamp is!!  As soon as I saw it, I thought chalk board card so I just had to give it a try.  I stamped using Versamark ink on a textured black card stock and then heat embossed with WOW Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder.  I added the little snowflakes and one of the reindeer from the stamp set to accent the names and embossed them too.  I cut the panel out with a cross-stitched rectangle die and added a few rhinestones that I colored with a red Copic marker.  To give it that chalk board look, I tapped on a little bit of white craft ink with a sponge.  Then, I cut out some Corrugated Kraft card stock using a cross-stitched rectangle and added this great 7/8″ Striped Ribbon from Stampin’ Up as an accent.  You’ll notice a theme with these card today….makable!  Because when it comes to holiday cards, I generally like the make a few of each style!

Freshly Made Sketches #308

FMS308 by Jen Timko | Poinsettia Stamp by Simon Says Stamp, Be Merry Stamp and Dies by WPlus9, Be Merry DSP by Stampin' Up, Copic ColoringI am so happy to be able to share another great sketch with you today! The amazing Rita Wright is our sketch hostess at Freshly Made Sketches and she has one that will be fun for lots of interpretations.  Rita always has the most incredible coloring and that inspired me to pull out my Copics for today.

I love this Poinsettia stamp from Simon Says Stamp and I wanted to try to make it a white version.  (Red would have been pretty for this card too.)  Coloring white is always hard so I played around to see if I could do it.  On the flower I started with my light Toner Gray markers (T0, T2).  While I liked the look, I decided that I needed a little more color to make the flower look realistic.  So I added in a little bit of G20.  I think over all it turned out pretty.  The leaves from the set set were colored with a combination of green markers (G20, G24, YG61, YG17, YG67).  To add just a little more color to the card, I used this pretty Be Merry DSP from Stampin’ Up.  Love those speckles on the paper!  The sentiment and banner are from the Be Merry Stamp Set and Dies from WPlus9.  Finally, I thought I needed a little “something”, so I added some pearls to mimic the patten on the paper.

I have been busily stamping this week and getting ready to a new release from Newton’s Nook Designs.  You can expect lots of fun next week!  Until then, I hope you have a good week.  See you soon!
