Newton’s Nook – Release Day Jack-‘o-Lantern Cards

Hello everyone! Today is release day for Newton’s Nook. It’s amazing and I hope you’ll take a chance to look at it all if you haven’t yet. It’s got fall and Halloween goodies that are sure to include something wonderful for everyone!

Through release week reveals, I didn’t want my posts to be longer than they already were so I missed out sharing these fun cards featuring the new Jack-o’-Lantern layering stencil set. But we can’t have that so release day seems like the perfect festive day to share them.

I’m totally smitten with layering stencils these days so it’s not surprise that I couldn’t stop at one card with this new set. They are perfectly designed and so fun to create with!

For this first card, I inked up the stencils using dye inks for the orange and green layers, then used distress oxide for the faces so the brown would really cover the pumpkins and show up well. Then I die cut the panel with the largest Frames & Flags die set and tied green organza ribbon around it. Next, I popped it up with foam tape on a brown card base.

Then, I die cut the label shape from the Slimline Frames & Windows die set and heat embossed a sentiment from the new Halloween Pile stamp set before adhering it with foam squares.

This was a quick and easy card to create but it’s so festive and fun. I love it! Next, I stepped up the stenciling just a bit.

For this card, I used a teal A2 panel for my jack-o-lantern inking with dye inks except for the faces. For that, I spread Thermoweb Transfer Gel Blanco through the stencil and then set it aside to try.

After it was dry, I ran the panel through my laminator with bronze Deco Foil transfer sheet and look at those spooky faces shine! This is so cool in person to play with! I love it!

After foiling, I die cut the panel with the largest Frames & Flags die and added foam tape to the back and adhered it to plaid paper from the new Autumn paper pad.

For my sentiments, I used the Essential Alphabet die set to cut BOO from kraft, brown and black cardstock. I used liquid glue to adhere the letters shifting them just a smidge to the right each time. Then I glued them to the pumpkin panel.

Next, I stamped and heat embossed Happy Haunting from the new Spiderweb Oval stamp set and cut the words apart into fun strips. I popped those up with foam strips and adhered the whole panel to a white card base.

I hope you enjoyed these extra projects today and are able to snag some fun fall goodies for yourself from the new release.
