Newton’s Nook Designs November Release – Introducing Winter Tails

By Taheerah | 10th November 2014 | 38 Comments

Hey everyone!

This is my second post of the day! Please scroll down to see the latest Cure For The Monday Blues Challenge!

I’m back today to welcome to Day 1 of the Newton’s Nook November Release!

We have TWO *awesome* sets being released this month – and you’re totally invited to come party with us!

This month we’re still in the Holiday spirit! Today’s set kicks us off with a great, hilarious Winter set inspired by there being too much snow – Winter Tails!!

There are so many awesome images in this set, but for some reason that image of Winston kept calling me (and a few others of the DT as you will see!). Here’s what I came up with: 

What do you think? I love how this turned out!! 


I stamped Winston onto some Pure White cardstock and coloured him with Copics. Next I prepped a card panel to create a spinner card! I cut a wiggly channel in the panel, drew a wavy ‘hill’ line then blended in Distress Inks in Tumbled Glass, Spun Sugar and Scattered Straw for the sky. I added some snow with the Falling Snow stencil and white embossing paste, sprinkling on some Martha Stewart Crystal Fine glitter before it set.

I stamped the snow mounds, sentiment and sign using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and added some shading with Copics then assembled the card onto my base using Pinflair Glue Gel and I was all done! The spinner mechanism is quite a standard interactive card element to create, but if any of you would like a tutorial or more instructions please let me know!

I’ll leave you with some pictures of the spinner in action:

Funny, right?! Poor Winston – he can’t help getting into all these scrapes, the hapless bear that he is!!

  1. ha ha ha ha ha ha!! i LOOOOOOVE this spinner card!! (and i was totally giggling along with winston at the end of the post when he was 'in action!)! that sky background…swoon!! for real, it's stunning!! what a lovely amazing incredible card!

  2. I LOVE this card! I would really like to see how you assembled the action piece. I have done a circular one in the past and I attempted something similar to what you just did that was an epic fail! Living in Minnesota, I can relate to wanting to make it stop! Thanks so much for your inspiration and I hope to see a more detailed tutorial regarding this card.

  3. What a great idea for this super awesome stamp set!!! Every kid (a.k.a. us) is going to love playing with it!! Love all your extra work of glitz with the snow stencil, embossing paste, and glitter! Gorgeous scene!

  4. I love your card! I particularly love that Winston can 'stop' at multiple places in the slider, so when the card is displayed, you can change it up every now and then!
