Newton's Nook Designs November Release: Winter Tails

 Good morning!  I'm excited to be joining in with Newton's Nook Designs for their November release today!  They have some cool winter sets out this month- so fun!  Today's set is all about the SNOW!!  Winter Tails has cute little critters up to their ears with snow!  Here is what I was inspired to make with it:


The winter after we moved to Woodbridge was pretty cold and brought the most snow we had ever seen outside of the mountains!  We were excited about it all-- except for the shoveling!  lol!  I knew the stamps in the Winter Tails set would be a perfect compliment to the photos from this event!


I stamped the cute critters out on white cardstock and then used the snowy border stamp to make their snow drifts longer.  I colored them lightly with Copic markers and added some glitter with my Wink of Stella pen as well.  I fussy cut around the top of each animal, leaving the snow drifts below solid.

I created a long snowbank along the bottom as well by stamping the border stamp over and over.  I added the sign, sentiment, and snowman parts as well- aren't they fun!!

The title was made with stickers but I stamped the tiny snowflakes from the set around it with Versamark and heat embossed them with white powder.  I also used one of my favorite winter time products, Chunky White Embossing Enamel by Stampendous! to create the snow :)


It's not often that I have time to scrapbook these days but I still love it!   The papers are by Doodlebug Designs.  The stickers are by Echo Park, Bella Blvd, and American Crafts.
