For today’s cards, I am showcasing the Newton’s Costume Party stamp set and its coordinating dies.  The costume images on this set are super cute and the die set is a must-have because it cuts the inside portion of the costume to reveal Newton’s face.  It’s like dressing up paper dolls!

 

NND SEPT17_NewtonsCostumeParty Stamp

 

I stamped my images on Neenah solar white card stock using my stamping platform with my Memento Tuxedo black ink and colored my images in with my Copic markers. I die-cut the images using the coordinating dies.  I wanted to create a cute Halloween scene today and I used some cute patterned paper and dies I have from my stash.   Here’s my card:

NND September Reveals – Day 3 – Beautiful Bones & Spooky Skeletons

 

NND ReleaseI con_Sept17

 

Eek!  It is the 3rd day of the September reveals at Newton’s Nook Designs and we have another set of Halloween stamps for you.  You have a chance to win each stamp set during release week so check out the details I have indicated at the end of this blog post.  [Just a little important note:  I know some of you had difficulties finding the comments section.  If you would like to leave a comment to participate in the giveaway, the “comments section” will only be ever visible when a single post on Word Press is being viewed. Please click on this particular blog post and you will be able to leave a comment below.  Thank you for understanding and I apologize for the confusion.]

 

For today’s cards, I am showcasing the Beautiful Bones and Spooky Skeletons stamp sets and their coordinating dies.

 

 

I stamped my Spooky Skeleton images on 110 lb. black card stock using my stamping platform with versa mark ink and heat-embossed them with my white embossing powder.   I die-cut the images with the coordinating dies.  I wanted to create a little shaker card and use my Halloween sequins.

 

To finish my design I used some doodlebug google-eyes on the images.  Here’s my first card:

 

NNDBones1

 

For my second card, I stamped my beautiful bones stamp set on Neenah solar white card stock and using my versa mark ink, and colored them in with my Gansai Tambi Pearl Watercolor.   I also used my Sakura gel pens to add more intense colors to the card.   Since this stamp set is sort of related to the “Day of the Dead”, I wanted to add some floral images to my black background.  I used an older stamp set by Newton’s Nook called Lovely Blooms, released last spring.  I stamped them with versa mark ink and used different colors of embossing powder to heat-set it and make them pop.  Isn’t it amazing that you can actually stretch your stamps using them for a different season?   Here’s my card:

 

NNDDayoftheDead

 

This “Beautiful Bones” and “Spooky Skeletons” stamp sets and coordinating dies will be available for purchase on Friday, September 15th, at 8:00 a.m. CST.

I started out by stamping my images on Neenah solar white card stock and colored my images in with Copic markers. I also cut a 5 ½ by 4 ¼ to stamp my stars and draw the dots with my versamark ink and versamark pen. I covered them with my white embossing powder and heat-set it. I then used my distress oxide inks to color my background to create a night-sky.

I marked the position of where the battery was going to go on my card base, and also marked the “+” and “-“ placement of the circuit lines. Before I finalized the design and adhered my card front, I wanted to make sure that the lights worked first:

Here’s my card:

NNDCHIBI1

Here’s when I pushed the cactus to show the lights on the moon!  Doesn’t it look so spectacular? I had so much fun creating this card.
