Happy Monday! It’s reveal week over at Newton’s Nook Designs and I’m so excited to share a ton of inspiration with you this week! It might not feel like fall outside, but it sure looks like it’s here in my craft room! Today we are showcasing the Franken-Newton stamp set and coordinating dies, Halloween Meows Paper Pad, Halloween Woofs Paper Pad and Jack-o’-lantern Stencil Set. Here’s how I was inspired!
Before last year, I never used to make Halloween cards, and I also rarely used my pattern paper, I was more about hoarding it! Being part of the Newton’s Nook Designs has pushed me creatively and I couldn’t be more excited about this years Halloween/Fall release from Newton’s Nook Designs!
For my first card, I used the Franken-Newton stamp set along with the coordinating dies. I started by stamping two of the images to create a couple, and colored them using copic markers (shown below).
After coloring the images, I cut them using the coordinating dies. I used a couple of dies from the Heart Frames Die Set to die cut a heart from the Halloween Woofs Paper Pad and one from black cardstock that I stamped and embossed a sentiment from the Franken-Newton stamp set with white embossing powder.
I finished off the card, with a background panel cut down to an A2 size, and layered on the colored images, along with the colored images, and as always finished off with some sequins.
My second card is a no-coloring card, using sheets from both the Halloween Meows Paper Pad and Halloween Woofs Paper Pad.
I die cut one of the sheets to add a little dimension to the card, and finished off with a sentiment from the Trick or Treat Kittens stamp stamp, embossed on to a circle cut from black card stock using the Circle Frames Die Set.
For my final card for today I used the new Jack-o’-lantern Stencil Set. I inked up the first two layers on to make fall pumpkins. I used distress oxide inks in Walnut Stain, Shabby Shutters, Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade and Shabby Shutters.
I finished off the card using some die cuts from the Fall Friends Die Set along with a vellum circle cut using the Circle Frames Die Set.
