Welcome to day 3 of Newton’s Nook’s August release reveals! Today is packed full of Halloween goodness! I have 3 awesome cards to share with you so I’ll keep them all brief.
Batty Newton Stamps and Dies
Isn’t all of this incredible?!?!? I love Halloween and creating Halloween themed projects, so today is making me sooo happy! I hope you like it all too!
To create this fun Batty Newton shaker, I started with blending distress inks on a panel and used Thermoweb transfer gel and black decofoil with the bats stencil. Then to create the shaker mechanism I used Thermoweb glitz gel on a panel, let it dry and die cut a frame from the Framework die set to make it super glittery. I stamped, colored and die cut my Batty Newton; making sure to cut lots of extra bats for my shaker. I die cut the smallest Circle Frame and heat embossed my sentiment. Batty Newton and the sentiment are popped up with foam tape on the shaker and the shaker is adhered to the foiled panel with liquid glue. Then the whole thing was popped on a card base and I used some simple glossy accents on Newton’s nose and toe beans.
For a different spin on the roundabout series, I stamped and colored 2 Spooky Roundabout images. Then I took various dies from the Circle Frames set and cut them out. I inked up a panel from the Slimline Frames and Portholes with distress inks and spritzed it with water. I adhered my circles all over and then flicked pearl and gold watercolor and black paint all over it. This panel is popped up with foam tape on an orange card base. I used the Banner Trio dies and heat embossed my sentiment. Then this is also popped up with foam squares. Isn’t it so much fun?
Finally, I wanted to create a card where the new Spider Web stencil was the star of the show. So I inked up a panel with distress oxide inks and used Thermoweb glitz gel over the stencil and set it aside to dry. I pulled out the fabulous Witchy Newton image from last year and color him with my copics, die cutting him with the coordinating dies and setting it aside. I pulled out the Fancy Edges Tag set and cut out a tag base from a green distress inked panel. I cut a black top and adhered it together, popping Newton up with foam squares. I strung some baker’s twine through the hole and popped the tag up over the stenciled panel. For a sentiment I used the Spooky Roundabout set and another Banner Trio die and popped it up. For finishing touches I added glossy accents to the image and Nuvo Crystal Drops in apple green.
