It is Day 2 of the August Release reveals at Newton’s Nook Designs, today we are showcasing some new kitty stamps: Count Newton and Trick or Treat Kittens. Both adorable sets have coordinating dies too!
All new products will be available on Friday, 20th August.
When I saw the Count Newton stamp set I was giddy as I immediately imagined a graveyard night scene. As I never do scary cards, these images are just perfect for my scenes. So I stamped and coloured a few gravestones and Mr. Meow-cula keeping the colour combos restricted to greys and purple. I used Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers: BG9, BG7, BG4, BG2, BG1, PL4, PL3, PL2, HB1, FS7. I cut everything with the coordinating dies.
For the night sky I used Nuvo Shimmer Powders on Ranger Distress Watercolour cardstock. I simply added drops of Storm Cloud and Lilac Waterfall and spritzed it with water. Let the colours mix and dried it with my heat tool. I repeated the process another time to make the colours darker. I love the subtle shimmer it gives to a perfect night sky! I used water and white acrylic paint splatters to add some texture and when it was dry, I cut it down with the postage stamp die from Frameworks.
While I was die cutting I cut a Fence from woodgrain cardstock and grass with a Land Border die from black cardstock. I distressed it w bit with white pigment ink and assembled the scene. I needed some clouds so I die cut somefrom vellum with the Sky Scene Builder set, and used the bats to attach them to the card front.
The sentiment I stamped on a light purple Speech Bubble, like our vampire kitty is talking to us. So fun! As a finishing touch I added some clear shimmer to the gown and glossy accents to the gravestones.
For my second card as always I started with stamping and colouring the adorable little kitties and a ton of candies from Trick or Treat Kitten. I used Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers: cats: BG9, BG7, BG5, BG2, BG1, FS7, FS4, paperbag: MB4, MB3, MB1, pumpkin: GB9, BO4, BO3, BO1, IG10, IG7, candies: BO4, BO3, BO1, CT4, CT3, CT1, CG3, CG2, CG1, PL4, PL3, PL2, BG1. I used the coordinating dies to cut them all out.
I had a slimline design in mind so I die cut the scalloped base from patterned paper and the frame from black cardstock using the 2 slimline die sets: Slimline Frames and Portholes and Slimline Frames and Windows. I backed the frame with vellum so it muted the vibrancy of the patterned paper and popped up the kitties with 3D foam squares.
The sentiments I stamped on yellow circles which I trimmed down – I felt it matched the pumpkin shapes and gave some extra to the design. I scattered the extra candies all around and used glossy accents on them to make them shiny. A little clear shimmer I added to the witch hats too.
