Hey Guys! I’m back again with both some Christmas cards and “Happy New Year” cards for you today. And “Newton” the kitty, from Newton’s Nook, makes a guest appearance in two of them.
For my first Christmas card, I brought back one of my favorites, the Kat Scrappiness“Build a Stocking”die with my favorite “Buffalo Plaid” patterned paper and “fur” similar to a previous Kat Scrappiness blog post I did in November.
I adhered the finished stocking to a black brick-embossed background and added the coal sentiment and the “naughty” die cut to finish the card. Both came from Kat Scrappiness‘s “Naughty Christmas Stamp & Matching Die” combo set.
For my second Christmas card, “Newton”, the kitty, is misbehaving, shooting Christmas fireworks everywhere!
First, I used Echo Park ‘s “Fireworks Stencil” for the background with “Candied Apple” and “Mowed Lawn” Distress Oxideinks. I then adhered snow banks from the Kat Scrappiness“Crafters Essentials-Winter” die set at the bottom and stamped the sentiment from Kat’s “Naughty Christmas Stamp & Matching Die” combo set.
I colored “Newton” from the Newton Nook’s “New Year’s Stamp and Die Combo Set” with Copic Markers and placed him behind the snow banks. By coloring his champagne bottle to look like a black cannon, this kitty is ready for mischief. LOL! I used the Kat Scrappiness“Christmas Cheer” sequin collection for the fireworks and added a snowflake from Kat‘s “Snowflake Kisses” die set.
For card #3, I switched gears (and holidays) and created a New Year’s card. I created a shaker card by die cutting a circle, framing it in gold glimmer card stock, and then filling it with two of Kat’s sequin mixes: “Snow Flurries” and “Cheers Gold,” with some added clear bubble sequins from my stash.
I die cut the Kat Scrappiness“Happy New Year Brush Script and Sentiment Die” out of blue glimmer card stock, layered a second one behind it in gold glimmer card stock, and then adhered it to a black glimmer card base. Two champagne glasses from the “Cheers Gold” sequin collection were the finishing touch next to the sentiment.
My final card wishes all crafters a “Happy New Year.” And what could be more appropriate than scissor sequins shooting out of Newton’s champagne bottle!
I die cut a large circle in a white panel and placed it over a background that was sponged with “Mermaid Lagoon” Distress Oxidesink. I then sponged silver pigment ink through the Echo Park “Fireworks Stencil.”
I die cut “Newton” from the Newton Nook’s “New Year’s Stamp and Die Combo Set“, added a little color to him, and then adhered him to the front of the card. I added the Kat Scrappiness“Silver Scissor Sequin Mix” onto the spewing champagne and up into the sky. The “Happy New Year” sentiment is from same stamp set, although I added the “Crafty” from a stamp set in my stash.
And on that note, “Happy Crafty New Year” to all my fellow crafters. May 2019 bring you joy and even greater creativity!
