Newton’s Nook Designs August Release – Day 2

Hello Everyone,

It is Day 2 of the August Reveals at Newton’s Nook Designs and we continue the Halloween theme with the versatile Spiderweb Oval stamp set which coordinates perfectly with the previously released Oval Frames die set. We also have a super cute mini stamp, Halloween Pile which comes with coordinating dies.

All new products will be available from 19/08/2022.

For my card I stamped and coloured the main image from the Halloween Pile set using Copic markers: BG15, BG11, BG10, W9, W7, W5, W4, W2, W0, W00, YG67, YG17, YG25, YG01, YR09, YR07, YR04, R01, R00. I used the coordinating die to cut it out.

Then I heat embossed the Spiderweb Oval on black cardstock with black embossing powder. Then I used white pigment ink in the middle to make it a bit foggy and mysterious, and added Black Sooth Distress Oxide ink on the edges for deeper shadows. I cut it out with the Oval Frames die set.

I used black embossing powder to heat emboss the sentiment on an orange banner which I cut with the Frames and Flags die set.

For the background I used a fun patterned paper from the Halloween Meows paper pad, matted it with a vivid green cardstock and popped up the oval and the banner with thin 3D foam tape. I also used dimensional adhesive to pop up the coloured image in the middle of the spiderweb.

As a finishing touch I used a black glaze pen and glossy accents.


My 11 year-old daughter, Jana was crafting with me for this release and I think she made a wonderful job showcasing the Halloween pile set.

She used the Candy Corn Layering stencils on kraft cardstock with Distress Oxide inks: Carved Pumkin, Mustard Seed and White Pigment ink from Simon Says Stamp. The image she coloured with Copic markers and cut it out with the coordinating dies. She created a frame using the Frameworks die set, backed it with vellum to mute the background tiny. She stamped a sentiment under the focal panel with Versafine black ink and finished the card with twine.
