For Day 1 of the reveals, we are showcasing the Franken Newton Stamp Set + coordinating dies, along with the Halloween Meows and Halloween Woofs Paper Pads with the Jack-O-Lantern Stencil.

I started by stamping my images on some X-Press It Blending Card and colored the images in with alcohol markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

I cut the pattern paper from the Halloween Meows Paper Pad with a rectangle die from my collection and adhered this panel on some A2-size, top-folding notecard.

Next, I die-cut the oval panel using the Oval Frames Die Set on some Bristol Smooth white card stock. I ink-blended this panel with some distress oxide ink and foam-mounted the same to the card for added dimension.

I die-cut the scallop circle again using the Oval Frames Die Set on some black card stock and used the Land Borders Die to create the grass for my scene. This was also foam-mounted to the foreground.

I felt like my scene needed more texture so I added the Birch Trees that I die-cut on some black card stock using the Forest Scene Builder Dies and adhered on the background with liquid glue. I added the colored images on the card with liquid and foam adhesive.

I finished the card design by stamping the sentiment and “eyes” from the Spooky Street Stamp Set with some black ink. Here’s another look at the card:
