Halloween Inspiration Week – Day 4 | Newton’s Nook Designs

This week Newton’s Nook Designs is getting ready for Halloween with a fun Inspiration week! All week the NND Design Team will be sharing inspiration using some of their favorite Halloween products to get you in the mood for tricks and treats! Check out what I created today and don’t forget to check the NND Blog each day this week for more fun inspiration!

For my card, I decided to use the Trick or Treat Kittens stamp set, cause who can resist this cute images!

I started by stamping the two images from the Trick or Treat Kittens stamp set on to heavy weight card stock using copic friendly ink and colored them in using copic markers, and die cut them using the coordinating dies.

Copic Combo : N0, C1, 3, 5, 7; E15, 37; YR00; Y15, 17; V15, 17; B00, 02; YG06, 23

Next I created the inked background using distress oxide ink (chipped sapphire, seedless preserves, ripe persimmon, and wild honey). Then I splattered it with water, black and white paint for some added depth.

Copic Combo : 0; N0; C5, 7; YR04, 14, 15; Y15, 17; YG06, 23; BV04, 08; E57, 59

Once I went to assemble the card, I found that the colored images were getting lost on the inked background, so I die cut stitched squares using the Slimline Frames and Windows Die Set and used them as a background instead. I almost embossed a sentiment from the same Trick or Treat Kittens stamp set on to the third square. I added the squares to the inked background and finished off the card with some jewels to match the ink colors.

Newton’s Nook Designs August Release – Day 2 – Count Newton & Trick or Treat Kittens + coordinating Dies

Welcome back for day 2 of reveal week over at Newton’s Nook Designs and I’m so excited to share a ton of inspiration with you this week! Today we are showcasing the Count Newton and Trick or Treat Kittens stamp set and coordinating dies. Here’s how I was inspired!

As I mentioned yesterday Halloween cards are a whole new world to me! I didn’t really know where to start but decided to have some fun and play around with colors, and love the results! More Halloween coming your way from now!

For my first card I started by creating a galaxy background on some heavy weight black cardstock using distress oxide inks, along with some metallic paints. I used a die to create windows for my scene and embossed the sentiment from the Count Newton stamp set on to one of them in gold.

Next I stamped and colored the images from the Count Newton stamp set and cut them out using the coordinating dies. I arranged them around the window on the card front, adhering them with a combination of glue and foam tape.

My second card is probably my favorite stamp from this release (you’ll be surprised that it’s not another one, once you see the whole release!). To create this card, I started by die cutting the word “BOO” from some left over galaxy paper from my first card. Then I created the background using the Candy Corn Stencil, I inked up the first two layers with pigment ink, and the last layer with some texture paste.

Next I stamped and colored all the images from the Trick or Treat Kittens stamp set and die cut them using the coordinating dies. I adhered the larger images in the free space between the “BOO” and added the extra candy images around the letters.

Newton’s Nook Designs August Release – Day 1 – Brooms & Boos + coordinating Dies and Candy Corn Stencil

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 Brooms & Boos stamp set and coordinating dies & Candy Corn Stencil. Here’s how I was inspired!

This is my first time creating a Halloween card, I didn’t really know where I was going when I started making this card, but I pretty pleased with the result! I really hope that you like and are inspired by it too!

To create this card, I started by coloring two of the witches from the Brooms & Boos stamp set, using copic markers and die cut them using the coordinating dies. Next I created the background using the Bokeh Stencil Set along with a yellow, green and purple dye inks on the first layer and white pigment ink on the second layer.

I felt the witches were getting lost in the background, so I die cut little squares using the scallop square from the Slimline Frames & Window Die Set from some black cardstock that I used to create a galaxy background.

I adhered the squares to the bokeh background, embossed a sentiment in gold onto one of them, and added the witch die cuts to the other two. Lastly, I added some jewels to the card to finish it off.

Would you like to win the “Brooms & Boos”  Stamp Set? This stamp set will be given away to ONE lucky winner!
