We have reached the final day of the sneak peeks at the fa-boo-lous August release at Newton’s Nook Designs. Are you excited? I hope you liked the last three days and are ready for getting in spooky mood. Today we are showcasing 2 Halloween stamps with their coordinating dies and fun new stencil. All of these will be available tomorrow, 23/08!
For my first card I stamped and coloured the adorable dogs from Happy Howl-oween with Copic markers and cut them out with the coordinating dies. I stamped a bunch of extra candies for building a cute garden scene.
The next step was to create the night sky background. I used the Clouds stencil on Bristol Smooth cardstock and Wilted Violet Distress ink. When it was done, I die cut the panel with my favourite postage frame die from Frameworks.
After adhering the background a black cardbase and attaching the fence and grass, I placed the dogs temporarily where they would be. I felt I wanted the sky to be more Halloween-y so I pulled out the Flying Bats stencil and used mini blending brush to add a couple of bats around the dogs with Black Soot Distress ink.
I partial die cut some speech bubbles from white cardstock to match the sentiments and popped them and the dogs up with 3D foam squares. I scattered the candies in the grass all around.
As a finishing touch I added a bit of clear shimmer to the wizard costume and the candies and emphasized some details with glossy accents and a black glaze pen.
For my second card I coloured the Witchy Newton set with Copic markers and cut it out with its coordinating die. I cut a lime green and a slightly wider purple piece of cardstock, adhered them together and tore a piece of vellum which was tiny taller so I could wrap it around the coloured cardstock piece. I added strong tape on the back of the panel to secure the vellum.
I stamped the sentiment with black STAZ-ON ink and adhered the cut out image under it.
I embellished the vellum with tiny silver stars and added some clear shimmer to the boot and glossy accents on some of the details.
The background for the focal panel I created on a black scalloped rectangle (Frames and flags die set). I masked off the stitching parts with purple tape and applied Thermoweb Pearl metallix deco foil gel though the new Ghost stencil. I love the pearlescent shine after drying!
I mounted the assembled panel on a dark grey card base to match the spooky feel.
