Hello Newton’s Nook fans! It’s been super HOT here at home and I have been dreaming about sweater weather, and anything pumpkin related. This is my inspiration for today’s card. Although when this post actually goes live, hubby and I will be in South Africa enjoying their winter weather; at least for about a week or so! If you follow me on instagram, you might be able to see some photos of my trip.
For my project today, I am showcasing Newton’s Perfect Pumpkin stamp set, and I paired it with a lot of images from Pick-A-Pumpkin with Newton’s Boo-tiful night, and my sentiment is from the Creepy Cameos stamp set. The birch tree is from the Forest scene Builder die set and the grass is from the Land Border die set.
To begin, I stamped and colored my images on some Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth Premium white card stock. This card stock is perfect for coloring with alcohol markers. I fussy-cut the images with my precision-cut scissors.
The background is ink-blended with different distress oxide inks. I spritzed this with water using my distress sprayer and dabbed it with my paper towel to dry to get more texture. I also die-cut the birch trees and the grass a couple of times with some black card stock.
I stamped the moon and stars from Newton’s Boo-tiful Night stamp set on my colored background with Versamark ink. I sprinkled this with some white embossing powder, and heat-set using my Wagner heating tool. I did the same thing for my sentiment. I assembled the card by adhering the birch trees first, followed by the grass. I foam-mounted some of the trees and Newton to create more dimension on my scene.
To finish my design, I stamped the black bats and added the white dots using my Sakura white gel pen. I also adhered the spider web using liquid glue. Here’s a closer look:
I know it’s too early to create Halloween projects since it’s only August but I love Halloween and creating Halloween cards is one of my favorite thing to do!
I hope you like my card today. The supplies I used are listed and linked below. Thank you for stopping by and have an amazing day! Happy stamping!
