Happy Thanksgiving with Newton’s Nook

Hello again Newton’s Nook fans!  Did you manage to hop along with the team last week for the September product release?  They are available at the shop now.  Which one was your favorite?  To be honest, I can’t really pick one!

For my project today, I am showcasing the Newton’s Thanksgiving stamp set and coordinating dies.

Since this card is all about Thanksgiving, I wanted to create a fall scene today.  I started by stamping the image on some smooth white card stock and colored it in with my Copic markers.   I will also be inking up my Bristol smooth white card stock with some distress oxide inks.

I inked up my background with Tumbled Glass and Tattered Rose distress oxide inks.  I have been LOVING this color-combo lately  for a fall sky.  I used vintage photo distress oxide to splatter some dots on my background, and blotted it dry with my paper towel.  I used a scallop die from my stash to cut a position of this card stock to create a little window.

I adhered my colored background onto my card base and inlaid the frame.  I added some fun elements to create my fall scene.

To finish my design, I added the “happy” sentiment from a die that I have from my stash with some foam adhesive.  Also used my white gel pen to add some interest to the card.  Here’s a close-up:

I completely ADORE this stamp set.  If you haven’t picked it up yet, please visit the shop before they sell out.

Halloween Treat Box Using Stampin Up’s Owl Punch

Now that Fall is almost here, it’s time to get decorating and crafting so by the time Halloween comes, you’re ready to sit back and enjoy it. One of the things I love to do is to make Halloween treats. On this video, I am sharing on how I created this treat box. I’m not exactly sure where I got the box measurements, but the topper is what made it cute. I used the Stampin’ Up!’s Owl Punch. I never thought I would get a lot of use for this punch but ever since I got it, I’ve been using it almost everyday with all of my crafting projects.

I hope you all enjoy this video.
