Welcome back for day 2 of the January Release from Newton’s Nook Designs. You are going to fall head over heels with today’s set called Sending Hugs. All of the options are perfect for pretty much anyone you could want to create a card for and wait until you see how the dies work.
I chose this cute owl and decided to color him in bright, happy and decidedly “not real owl” colors. I used my Chameleon Pens and Color Tops to create this fun shading. After much debate, I thought this envelope worked well for my sentiment choice. And now, you really need to take note…just look at how the owl is holding the letter. Yep, the dies do that! They cut the “hands” (feathers, paws) out so your little animal can hold the treat! Oh…brilliant!!! Just admit it, you want me to go stamp and cut more out right now, don’t you?? Thank goodness the team has done that and can show you more options!! As a way to accent my owl, I used the Tumbling Hearts stencil and some new Shimmery White Embossing Paste. The sparkle is awesome!
I tried to capture some of the glittery look here but there is so much more wow in person. To match, I added a little strip of shimmer washi tape down the side too. I hope you enjoy this card and now time to get to everyone’s favorite part of release week. A chance to win!!
