Halloween Card with Newton’s Perfect Pumpkin

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!

I Put A Spell On You with Kindred Stamps

Hello Kindred Stamps fans!  I hope you are all having a great week so far.  Maria here with you and I am super excited to write my first blog post as a design team member of Kindred stamps.  I am so happy and honored to be working with these talented ladies and I hope you will also be inspired by my designs.   You will also find more of my work on my blog –> Maria Russell Designs.

 

For my project today, I am showcasing the Witch Sisters stamp set.  I love HALLOWEEN and if I can celebrate it all-year round, I definitely would.

 

I started by stamping my images on some Neenah Solar White Card Stock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I colored my images in with my Copic markers and used by precision scissors to fuzzy cut the images.

 

I used an apartment die from my stash to die-cut the pieces I needed to create the “cottage” for my cute little witches.  I adhered the pieces onto a black card base and added the witches.

 

To finish my design, I fuzzy-cut a black cat image from the All Hallow’s Eve 6×6 paper pad collection by American Crafts.  I colored the cat’s eyes with my Green Copic marker.  I also stamped my sentiment on a scallop oval and added this piece on the awning.  Here’s my card:

 

I really love how this card turned out.  To add a little whimsical touch, I added some Stardust Stickles on the candle flame  Here’s another look:

 

 

I also added a small ghost on the sentiment:

 

 

I hope you got inspired today!  Please visit Kindred Stamps to purchase the Witch Sisters stamp set that I used today.  Have an amazing day and happy crafting!

Hello my crafty friends!  This week, the Xyron Design Team is sharing our Halloween projects.  I am back today to share mine, showcasing some Lawn Fawn products and my favorite adhesives by Xyron i.e., the 1.5 Inch Sticker Maker and the Mega Tape Runner.

This little treat box can also be used as a cute Halloween decor if you put an LED Tea Light inside and it will illuminate the box.   Here are the photos:

I also have a process video below for you today to show you how I assembled the box.

And here’s an additional Halloween card for you.  Who else loves the Addams Family?  I do.  I used to watch it all the time when I was a kid.  When I saw this stamp set by The Sassy Club, I just knew I had to order them all to create some cute cards, or decorate my planner.   Here’s my card:

I hope you like my projects today with the process video.   Have an amazing day!

Halloween Card – Flying Witch

This card was inspired by a fellow demonstrator, Tami White. Although our cards are done differently, the design is the same. I thought of sharing this because the card is so easy to make – plus it is very unique in a way because this is not the typical orange and black Halloween colors. I really love this card and I hope you do as well.
