Cute ‘You’re the pick of the patch’ Halloween Card Using Newton’s Nook “Boo-tiful Night” set!

Hey lovelies!
I’m well in the spooky spirit and back with another Halloween card using Newton’s Nook “Boo-tiful Night” set! These kitties are just too cute I can’t get enough of them! Halloween stamps are my weakness, especially when they have pumpkins!

I coloured these images using my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers, added rosy cheeks on the grey cats using a pink coloured pencil and finished up by adding some highlights using my white gelly roll pen. I fussy cut the images out by hand and moved on to my panel.

I cut some black card stock down to size using my guillotine trimmer. I used the Flying Bats stencil from Newton’s Nook to blend Carved Pumpkin Distress Oxide ink on to my panel, when I removed the stencil I sprinkled some clear embossing powder over the bats and set with my heat tool to give it a textured look and feel. I cut my window from my panel using Craftin Desert Divas Inside Scalloped Circle dies and removed the scalloped part so I was left with the stitched circle.

I cut my grass using the Outdoor Landscape dies from Craftin Desert Divas and ink blended it with Mowed Lawn Distress Ink, and I used the Hill Scene 2 Stencil to blend some Twisted Citron Distress Oxide ink on to my background panel to create my clouds. I distressed the background panel with my Distress sprayer, splattered it with more Twisted Citron ink using a paintbrush and dried it before prepping it with my powder tool applicator. I stamped my sentiment and the bat using Versafine Onyx Black ink, coated it in clear embossing powder and set it with my heat tool. I adhered everything in to place and finished my panel using some orange ribbon, as well as some black and white twine. I blended some Carved Pumpkin Distress Oxide ink over the edges of some white card stock slightly larger than my panel to frame my panel and adhered everything to my card base using score tape and double sided foam tape.

Hey there Pumpkin! Cute Halloween Card using Newton’s Nook “Boo-tiful Night” set!

Hey lovelies!
Halloween is fast approaching and it’s my absolute favourite! I’ve already been stamping out everything Halloween in my stash ready to colour for more cards! I had to break open this Newton’s Nook Boo-tiful Night set first though, the adorable cats and pumpkins were calling to me!

When I get a new stamp set I like to stamp all of the images out using Memento Tuxedo Black ink to colour up ready for when I need them. I’m planning to make and send out a lot of Halloween cards this year so I know every one of these adorable images will go to use! I used my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers to colour these cute kitties, a pink coloured pencil to add their rosy cheeks and my white gelly roll pen to add highlights. I fussy cut them all out before moving on to my background.

I used the Newton’s Nook “Flying Bats” stencil and Carved Pumpkin Distress Oxide ink to blend the bats on to some white card stock, after removing the stencil I blended the ink darker over the edges of my panel and gently blended it in to the middle for the lighter area. I splattered some black watercolour paint on my panel and allowed it to dry, I just love how black and orange look together so I couldn’t resist!

I cut my grass using Craftin Desert Divas’ “Outdoor Landscape” dies, I blended some Mowed Lawn Distress ink along with some Fossilized Amber near the top to give the effect that the top of the grass is glowing from the orange light. I prepped the grass with my powder tool applicator, stamped my sentiment using Versamark ink, coated it in Altenew “Pure White” embossing powder and set with my heat tool. I adhered my grass panel to my background and popped the adorable little cat and pumpkins up with some foam tape. I created a card base from heavyweight white card stock, cut down some black paper to frame my panel and adhered everything to the card base. I finished up by adding some Ebony Black Nuvo drops to draw attention to my sentiment then set my card to dry in a safe place for 24 hours.
