Hello and welcome back! I hope everyone’s doing well today! As we bid summer farewell, what could be more fitting than to start your week and get excited for Halloween!
This week, Newton’s Nook Designs is getting ready for Halloween with a fun Inspiration week! All week long, the NND Design Team will be sharing inspiration using some of our 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!
Before I start with the tag, I wanted to create this cute Witch’s Broom Pen to go with the treat! If you look closer, you will see the red glowing eyes that gives it a spooky effect! I thought this is really cute and will be a nice addition to the treat.
I cut a strip of baking paper. I used my specialty scissors to create the fringe and wrapped it around the bottom of the pen. I adhered the fringe with hot glue so it wouldn’t come off. I added a black bow at the bottom to finish the look. This pen can actually stand up on it’s own!
Next, I filled a small bag with some of my friend’s favorite candy bars and closed the top with some black curling ribbons. Last thing to do is to add a tag!
Step-by-Step Instructions for the Tag:
Stamp the image using the Trick or Treat Kitten Stamp set on Bristol smooth white card stock and color the images in with Zig Clean Color real Brush Markers.
Create the Candy Corn Tag by die-cutting white, orange, yellow and black card stock using the Fancy Edges Tag Die Set. Adhere all pieces together with liquid glue.
Stamp the sentiment on the tag with Black Onyx ink.
Adhere the image on the tag with foam adhesive for added dimension.
Attach the tag to the treat bag with some baker’s twine.
My friend and I love Halloween so much! Not only will she love the treats inside this treat bag but I’m sure she is also going to love the Witch’s Broom Pen. It can stand up and the eyes glow in the dark! Check out the photo below!
I hope you like my project today and got inspired! The supplies I used are listed and linked below. Don’t forget to visit the Halloween Products Category at Newton’s Nook Designs and get your favorites for creating some cute and spooky Halloween crafts!
Hello and welcome back! I am so glad you joined me today!
Today is all about Candy Corns! As soon as I saw this stencil set from the August release, this card idea already popped in my head. Isn’t is strange that you sometimes get ideas right away?! Most of the times, I have to look at my previous card designs to get some inspiration (or if I’m feeling more adventurous, I’d look at Pinterest).
Cut some vellum measuring 2 1/2 by 5 1/2 and adhere to the card background with tape runner. Designer note: make sure you hide the adhesive so that it doesn’t show up.
Adhere this background on an A2-size notecard.
Die-cut some white, yellow, orange and black card stock using the Fancy Edges Tag Die Set (a must-have for any paper crafter since there are so many possibilities using this set). Adhere with liquid glue.
Use some black and white Baker’s Twine and add to the tag.
Add some foam-tape to the back of the tag and adhere on the card.
Adhere the Candy Corn images with liquid glue.
Finish the design by stamping the sentiment using yellow, orange and black ink.
It always puts me in a great mood when I see bags of candy corn at the grocery store. It just reminds me of all the great holidays coming up, especially HALLOWEEN (my favorite holiday)!
I hope you enjoyed this inspiration today. The supplies I used are listed and linked below. Thank you again for joining me, and happy crafting!
I repeated the process by stamping the images randomly on my card stock. Next, I used some Raven Hybrid Ink to stamp the skull in the middle of the spider web. I adhered this card panel on an A2 size notecard. and finished the card design by stamping the black ribbon and the sentiment with Raven Hybrid ink. I just LOVE the intensity of this black ink, don’t you?!
For my next project below, I used the Pirouette Patterns Template again to stamp the images on a 4×4 card stock. This template makes it super easy to perfectly center your images on the card. The lines really helped me position the images to create a seamless pattern. I am warning you, it gets really addicting! Haha!
Next thing to do is to mat the card on some orange and black card stock, then adhering it on some purple card stock measuring 4 3/4 by 9 1/2 folded in half, which makes it a 4 3/4 x 4 3/4 notecard. I finished my card design by stamping the words “Happy Hunting” with some Raven Hybrid Ink. Here’s another look:
Hello Newton’s Nook fans! I am so glad you joined me today and I am also up on the Newton’s Nook blog, sharing this cute Halloween card from the new August product release. I didn’t get to join in the fun because I was traveling but rest assured that you will be seeing a lot more throughout the month.
Apply some Unicorn ink on the edges of the tombstone, land and grass borders for added texture.
Use a circle die to die-cut some masking paper and adhere to an A2-size panel of Bristol smooth white card stock.
Ink-blend this panel with distress oxide ink.
Use distress sprayer to add water droplets to the ink-blended panel for added texture and interest.
Pick up excess water with some paper towel and remove the mask.
Stamp the spooky tree, bats and sentiment using black ink.
Adhere the hill and grass border on the card using tape runner.
Use white gel pen to add some detail to the black tombstone.
Adhere the rest of the elements to finish the scene.
I really LOVE creating halloween cards and this will be the first of many halloween cards I’ll be posting on this blog. Here’s a closer look:
The white pigment ink on the tombstone, hill and grass border added more texture and interest to this spooky scene, don’t you think?
That is all for today! I hope this spooky card will entice you to start thinking about Halloween! The supplies are listed and linked below for your reference*. Thanks so much for stopping by today, and happy crafting!

Our Home Sweet Home Base Die will create the base house perfect for any season. It measures approximately 4.25 x 5.75 inches. You can use it to create a house shaped card ,create a larger card such as a 5×7, an-A2 card (cutting it off slightly to make the house smaller!). There are multiple ways to use this die to create a one-of-a-kind house of your own!
The Crafters Essentials Halloween Dies include 8 individually designed dies that you can mix and match to create uniquely designed cards time and time again. These dies will work for A2, Slimline & Mini Slimline Cards (and other projects too!)
Create your own Creepy Crawly fun with this die set which includes four dies, two spider webs and two CUTE spiders! Add some googly eyes to the spiders for that extra cutesy look! Wouldn’t it be fun to add these die-cuts to your Happy Planner as well?
Create your own Mini Slimline Envelopes using this set of 14 dies. Use your own creativity to select from either patterned paper or colored card stock, etc. to create your own one-of-a-kind envelope. We’ve added the “Happy Mail” word dies to decorate your envelope. The envelope can be mailed and/or hand delivered to the recipient.
I have four (4) samples to share with you today. I have mixed and matched the Halloween products to create some fun and spooky cards.
I have to admit that this first card below is probably one of my favorite Halloween cards that I’ve ever made! I ink-blended the background with some distress oxide inks and used a stencil set from my collection to create the creepy sky!
The Home Sweet Home House Die Set was die-cut using some purple card stock and dry-embossed with a brick stencil. I then added black soot on the bricks to add more texture and dimension.
This slimline card is another favorite of mine. I adhered the Boo To You Paper on some black slimline card base. On another panel of SL Bristol smooth white card stock, I used some clouds stencil and distress oxide inks to create the night-time sky.
I then stamped the costume from the Dress-Up Quokka Halloween Add-on Stamp Set on some masking paper and fussy-cut using precision snips. I stamped the costumes first on some Neenah solar white card stock and used the mask to mask-off the image, then stamped the two quokkas from the Dress-Up Quokka Stamp Set. By doing so, it created a seamless look. I used my Scan N cut machine to cut the images out.
The cute ghosts from the Boo-gy Ghosts Die Set were die-cut on some glitter card stock. I finished the design by adding some Purple Pearls and the sentiment Lift Your Spirits that I die-cut with some black and white card stock.
Hello my crafty friends! Maria here on the blog with you today sharing this cute Halloween card, featuring a few of my favorite stamp sets by LDRS Creative. Halloween is fast-approaching and I want to start creating my cards so that I’ll have plenty of time to mail them to the recipient.
I started by stamping the images on some Neenah solar white card stock using the Raven Hybrid ink. I colored the images in with my alcohol markers and die cut, using the coordinating dies.
I ink-blended my A2 size panel of Neenah with some Banana Cream Pie Hybrid Ink and mini sponge dauber. I increased the intensity of the color towards the middle. I foam-mounted the window, flower box and the black cat on the card panel then started adhering the rest of the ivy leaves with liquid glue.
Before adhering my trick-or-treaters, I die-cut the two grass panels out of the Sweater Weather paper using the In the Grass die set. I added the pumpkins and the treat bag, then foam-mounted the rest of the images for added dimension.
I finished my design by stamping the cobweb and spider, then stamped the sentiment using Raven Hybrid Ink. Here’s another look:
I absolutely LOVE that you can mix and match these cute stamp sets to create a beautiful Halloween scene. I hope you like my card today. The supplies I use are listed and linked below. Thanks for stopping by and happy stamping!
Create cute seasonal maple bag tags with the Art of Sublimation!
Learn how to create one-of-a-kind seasonal bag tags with Artesprix Sublimation Markers and Ink Pad!
Hello! Maria Russell here again and I am super excited to share with you today’s project! Since I’ve already created some summer-themed bag tags a few months ago, I thought I’d share more projects today celebrating Halloween, Winter and Spring seasons.
Trace your maple tag on plain typing paper with a pencil.
Before I stamped the images, I refilled my Artesprix Sublimation Stamp Pad with the (new) Sublimation Stamp Ink Refill. Since I was creating 3 designs, I wanted to make sure that my stamp pad is juicy so that my images will look crisp when stamped on the paper.
Use the Artesprix Sublimation Stamp Pad to stamp the images and color with the Sublimation Markers. I repeated these steps for the three tags, assembly-line style.
Secure your design on your Maple Bag Tag by using Artesprix Heat Tape. If you are going to sublimate using the Artesprix Heat Press, you only need one on each side to hold it down. If you are using an iron, you will need a few more. Sometimes the iron will cause the image to slip and you will get a ghost image. [Only use Artesprix Heat Tape on the outer edge of the design (not over it).]
Turn your Artesprix Heat Press on and set the temperature to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and the timer for 45 seconds. Create your sublimation sandwich. Cut two pieces of Protective Paper to cover your Artesprix Halloween Decorative Metal Panel on the top and bottom. [Designer tip: Make sure that your design is facing the heat source before you heat press.] Place it inside the Heat Press and close the machine. The Heat Press will beep indicating that your project is finished!
I sublimated the tags one after another (“assembly-line style“). This made it easier for me to get them all done while the machine is on!
While wearing protective gloves, lift the handle and take your Sublimated Maple Bag tags out of the machine and sublimate the others. Place them all on top of the Protective Project Mat and give it about half an hour to cool it down.
Gently remove the paper to reveal the Sublimated Maple Bag Tag.
I created a double-sided Halloween Tag. Here’s the design:
Here’s what it looks like after sublimation:
I didn’t add any sentiments on this design. Since I LOVE Halloween images so much, I can use this bag tag all-year round!
Here are the three Maple Bag Tags –> Halloween/Fall, Woodland/Winter theme and a floral one for Spring:
