Newton’s Nook – August Release Day 1

Happy Monday everyone! It’s the beginning of reveals for the Newton’s Nook August release. It’s packed full of fun fall themed goodies and I can’t wait to share it all with you! Let’s have a look at today’s goodies, shall we?

Halloween Woofs Paper Pad

Halloween Meows Paper Pad

Franken-Newton Stamps and Dies

Isn’t this a huge array of amazingness to celebrate all things Halloween!?! I am absolutely in love with it all! I have a couple of cards to share with you today. I’ll start with this adorable Franken-Newton stamps set.

For this card, I chose that super cute Elvira-looking kitty and colored her with my copic markers. I used the coordinating die to cut her out and then chose a sentiment to heat emboss on a banner from the Banner Trio die set.

Next, I used Circle Frames dies to cut a silver scalloped and regular black circle to add my image and sentiment to. Then I switched gears to my background. For that, I ink blended distress oxide ink in mowed lawn, twisted citron and seedless preserves at an angle. Then I spritzed the panel with water and used the Bats stencil to spread glitz glitter gel through. I intentionally did this at an angle like the inking and faded imperfectly as I went down.

Once the glitz gel was dry, I die cut the panel with the largest Framework die and added foam tape to the back before adding it to the black polka dot paper in the Halloween Woofs paper pad. Next, I popped up my circle with foam squares.

For finishing touches, I added glossy accents to the white streaks in the kitty’s hair and her nose and bolts. Then I added stardust Stickled to her belt for some sparkle.

For my next card, I used strips of paper from both of the new Halloween pads. I cut strips 3/4″ wide and adhered them to an A2 size piece of orange cardstock. Then I wrapped ribbon around the panel about 1 1/2 inches up and adhered that to a white card base.

I die cut the rounded banner from the Banner Trio dies and heat embossed a sentiment from Spooky Roundabout on it before popping it up with foam squares over the ribbon. Last, I cut stars from the Sky Scene Builder die set from gold glitter cardstock and popped those up across the card front with foam squares too.

  1. Love the second card. That’s my kind of card
    to make. The papers work well together. The
    shading in the background of the first is great.
    Wonderful cards. thanks for sharing


  2. Beautiful ink blended background on your Franken-Newton card! Love the touch of Silver glitter you added with the circle scallop frame!


  3. Great cards! I love all the patterns, colors, stencils, and love just the strips of patterns to make a card too. Very creative. Thanks for the inspiration!
