Newton's Nook Designs August Release | Halloween Trio, Candy Corn & Boo Hoo

Hello friends! It's Day 4 of Newton's Nook Designs August Release Blog Hop! Don't forget, ALL of the new products will be available in the Newton's Nook Designs Store tomorrow August 17!



Boo Halloween Card | Halloween Trio Stamp Set

Today we have not one, but three, Halloween themed stamp sets to share with you today! First up, I'm sharing a Halloween scene I created using the Halloween Trio Stamp Set. I began by stamping and coloring the image and then die cutting it with the coordinating die set.
To create the background, I stenciled a piece of white cardstock with the flying bats stencil and Distress Oxide Ink in Black Soot. To give the background more color, I ink blended the panel with Distress Oxide Ink in Blueprint Sketch, Black Soot and Wilted Violet. I tapped off a lot of the excess ink to give just a light coverage of color. I then placed the stencil back on top and re-inked the bats to make them stand out again.

For the clouds, I used the cloud die from the Sky Borders Die Set. I used Distress Oxide Ink in Blueprint Sketch, Black Soot and Wilted Violet again but applied the ink a bit darker for more color.
The grass is die cut from the grass die that's part of the Land Borders Die Set and it's ink blended with Distress Oxide in Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron.

After all the pieces were created, I layered them onto the stenciled background panel and trimmed off any excess paper. I then used a circle die to create a full moon and inked it up with Distress Oxide in Antique Linen. For the final touch, I die cut a couple bats from black cardstock using the coordinating die for the Halloween Trio.

Halloween Card | Boo Hoo Stamp Set

For my second card, I have a rather "clean and simple for me" card using the Boo Hoo Stamp Set. To create the background, I stamped the images onto a piece of 4.25 x 5.5 inch black cardstock using white pigment ink and let it dry. I then took the large postage edge die from the Framework Die Set and die cut the background panel.

While I was stamping the background piece, I also stamped some extra images onto black cardstock and let them dry as well. Once they were dry I die cut them using the coordinating dies. Using the smaller postage edge dies from the Framework Die Set I cut a piece of green and purple cardstock. I adhered the die cut images to the frames and then added them to the card front.

Halloween Card | Candy Corn Stamp Set

For the third and final card today, I used the Candy Corn Stamp Set. To create the background, I randomly stamped the images with embossing ink onto a piece of watercolor paper and heat embossed them with white embossing powder. I then watercolored the images using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and blended out the colors with a water brush.

The yellow polka banner was created using the large flag die from the Frames & Flags Die Set. I finished off the card by stamping the sentiment in orange ink. I then stamped over it again with embossing ink using my MISTI to help and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.

I couldn't resist adding all of them to my card to create a fun little Halloween scene. I stamped and colored the images using my Chameleon Pens. I dressed up a couple of the bunnies with extra "hats" including the pumpkin and witches hat from the Newton's Costume Party Stamp Set. And of course they each had to have some candy to eat!

For the background, I die cut a piece of white cardstock using the scalloped edge die from the Frames & Flags Die Set. Next, I stenciled the inside of it with the NEW Flying Bats Stencil using Distress Oxide Ink in Twisted Citron. I used Therm O Web Purple Tape to mask of the center of the die cut frame and added more ink to the edges of the frame.

Hello friends! Welcome back! It's Day 2 of Newton's Nook Designs August Release Blog Hop!


Pawsome Birthday Card | Fabulous Frenchies Stamp Set

Today I'm sharing a fun little birthday card featuring the Fabulous Frenchies Stamp Set and Coordinating Dies. There are 4 french bulldogs on this stamp set, and I choose to group 3 of them together to create a fun birthday scene.


I stamped and colored the images using Chameleon Pens. I then die cut the pieces using the
coordinating dies. I couldn't resist giving each of the frenchies a party hat! And to add more fun to the scene I included the pile of presents and sunglasses from the Loveable Llamas Stamp Set.

For the background, I die cut a piece of white cardstock using the large postage edged die from the Framework Die Set. I then stenciled it using the Confetti Stencil and a bit of Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide.

Newton's Nook Designs August Release - Classy Teachers

Hello friends! It's Day 1 of Newton's Nook Designs August Release Blog Hop!

Teacher Appreciation Card | Classy Teachers Stamp Set

I've created a card featuring their brand new Classy Teachers Stamp Set and Coordinating Die. I began by stamping and coloring the images with my Chameleon Pens. I then die cut them using the coordinating dies.

Teacher Appreciation Card by Juliana Michaels featuring Newton's Nook Designs Classy Teachers Stamp Set

For the sentiment I created a "chalkboard" looking sign by die cutting a piece of kraft cardstock using the small postage die from the Framework Die Set. I then cut it again from chalkboard paper and trimmed off the postage edge. I stamped the sentiment with embossing ink on the chalkboard paper and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. To give it a bit more of a chalkboard feel, I rubbed a piece of white chalk over it.
