Newton's Nook Designs Frosty Folks

Hello everyone, I sure have missed making cards to share with you, so I decided to write a blog post before Christmas to say hello and share a project I made with some new Newton's Nook Designs products.  

To begin with, I couldn't contain my excitement when I saw the brand new Mountain Stencil released in November.  I live in the foothills of the Appalachians and the views I see from my backyard are stunning.  However, heading up to higher elevations and seeing the mountains from a lookout point is truly spectacular and now fairly easy for me to recreate the look using this stencil.  So, needless to say I've got a lot of future plans for this mountain stencil!

For my background, I started by heat embossing a few snowflakes included in the stamp set.  I always do this first before inking. Then I chose a variety of purple and blue inks, starting at the top and working my way to the bottom, I created numerous mountain ranges and left the bottom white for the snowmen to sit on a bed of snow. I decided to add some extra flakes with my white gel pen and love how that turned out!


I then foam popped up this ADORABLE snowman image, Frosty Folks, which I Copic colored.  I enjoy coloring snowmen with striped hats, top hats, vests and patterned scarves. So this set was for me.  Plus, I love the versatility of being able to use this set all winter long.

I've linked up both Newton products used, for your browsing/shopping convenience. Thank you so much for stopping by!  I hope you enjoy your holidays in whatever special way you choose to celebrate! 

I've entered this project in the following challenges:
