Happy Haunts Card by September Guest Designer Priscilla Joseph

Priscilla Joseph | Sept 2021 Guest Designer for Newton's Nook Designs
Hello Crafty Friends!
I am delighted to be back again as the September Guest Designer for Newton's Nook Designs!

Cue the creepy, eerie Halloween music because for today’s post, I’ve created a haunted night scene complete with an old graveyard, a spooky mansion, ominous-looking trees draped in spider webs, and . . . one totally unexpected traditional jack-o-lantern. LOL!   I used 2 Newton Nook stamp sets to make this card: the just released Count Newton Stamp Set (coordinating dies are available) and the Spooky Street Stamp Set.

I love to make “colorless” scenes sometimes . . . they are “unexpected” you might say. Today’s card uses only black, white, and gray.
Spooky Halloween Card by September Guest Designer Priscilla Joseph | Spooky Street Stamp Set and Count Newton Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

Card Details:
  • Using a stencil from the stash, I created a brick wall background using black embossing paste on dark gray cardstock.
  • I added a stitched hill using a die and the same gray card stock.
  • I stamped the spooky house and trees from the Spooky Street Stamp Set on white card stock with black pigment ink and then cut them out using my Brother “ScanNCut2” machine.
  • I stamped the headstones and jack-o-lantern from the Count Newton Stamp Set with Copic-friendly ink before using the coordinating Count Newton Die Set to cut them out, and then colored them in several shades of gray Copics.
  • Time to make my haunted night scene! I adhered the spooky trees to the brick wall and the headstones to the hillside.
  • I foam mounted the spooky house to create more dimension and “hung” the jack-o-lantern from a tree branch.
Spooky Halloween Card by September Guest Designer Priscilla Joseph | Spooky Street Stamp Set and Count Newton Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade
  • For the sentiment “happy haunts” from the Spooky Street Stamp Set, I white heat embossed it on gray card stock and then foam mounted it (topped with a flying bat) above my scene.
  • For a cool finishing touch, I “strung” store-bought spider webs from the tree branches to the elements below.
  • I adhered the completed scene on to an A2 card base.
I hope you enjoyed my “haunted” Halloween card. Stay tuned to for a very bold harvest-themed card next week, using the contrasting colors of rust and navy.

Grateful for You Card by Farhana Sarker

Grateful for You Card by Farhana Sarker | Fall Roundabout Stamp Set, Circle Frames Die Set, Fall Friends Die Set and Banner Trio Die Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

Grateful for You!

Today we are sharing a beautiful autumn thank you card by Farhana. This unique card features a window on the front that opens to an image inside! What a fun idea!

To create this interesting layout, she started with a white card base. She cut a circle out of the front panel of the card using our Circle Frames Die Set. Then she embossed the big circle of leaves from our Fall Roundabout Stamp Set with metallic embossing powder on the inside of her card, lining it up so that it shows through the circle window. 

Next, she embellished the window by die cutting the leaves and pumpkins from several colors of cardstock using our Fall Friends Die Set. She gave them a bit of extra fun detail by adding lines of color over the stitched details using coordinating colors of markers! The sentiment was stamped using the Fall Roundabout Stamp Set onto a yellow banner that was cut out using our Banner Trio Die Set. She adhered the banner across the open circle.
Grateful for You Card by Farhana Sarker | Fall Roundabout Stamp Set, Circle Frames Die Set, Fall Friends Die Set and Banner Trio Die Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade
When you open the card, the entire image is revealed and there is still plenty of room to hand write a short message to the recipient!
