Happy Halloween! Two Be-witching Kitty Cards!

Happy Halloween Cat card by Jennifer Jackson -  Newton's Nook Designs | Newton's Perfect Pumpkin Stamp set

Happy MEOW-oween! 

Hope everyone has fun plans for Halloween today! We are excited to hand out treats to the kiddos in our neighborhood and see all their fun costumes!  I'd thought I'd take the opportunity today to share a couple more Halloween cards that I made with our fun Newton's Perfect Pumpkin stamp set. For this first card I stamped the cute kitty and pumpkins and then I colored the kitty with copics. I paper-pierced the pumpkins on different orange patterned papers and added them on top. Then I added the cute jack-o-lantern face! I also wanted to use the web and spider so I made a whole row of webs, stamping off the edge of the paper to make a fun spider web border. Then some sequins and ribbon finish it off! So fun!

This second card also uses the Newton's Perfect Pumpkin stamp set. For this first card I stamped the cute kitty and pumpkins on Kraft colored cardstock and the image with with copics, leaving the kraft showing through on the body of the kitty. Then I trimmed out the kitty and added it onto the card. Isn't it cool how that looks?

For the rest of the card, I used a spiderweb embossing folder on some black cardstock and then wiped over it with a towel dabbed with white ink to give it that "spooky" web look. Then I just added some cute pattern papers behind and made a fun little flag with a corduroy button from my stash and some fun lime twine!

I'm a bit sad that Halloween was over - I had so much fun creating this cute halloween cards. I guess I'm back onto Christmas cards now!

She used our new dachshund image from our Holiday Hounds stamp set to create the little gold embossed Doxie - it's a bit hard to see in the photo but it's right underneath the blue letters - so fun! she also used the little bone and snowflake images to create a fun background and if you look close you can see the "have a doxie christmas" sentiment in the lower right corner too!

Sweater Weather Card by Jess Moyer

Sweater Weather Doxie Card by Jess Moyer | Holiday Hounds Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs

Happy Sweater Weather! 

The adorable scene on this card by Jess features stamps from several different sets! She used the big "happy" sentiment from the Simply Sentimental and combined it with and the "sweater weather" from the Holiday Hounds. That adorable dachshund image is also, of course, from from Holiday Hounds - and doesn't he look so cute running into that pile of leaves from our Wagon of Wishes set? To finish off the scene, Jess created a bunch of grass using the little grass border from the Wild Child set and the cloud from the Hanging Around set! Wow! That's a lot of combining of images! Great job, Jess, on getting some extra milage out of your stamps!

Two Kitty Christmas Cards on Kraft!


Kitty Christmas Card with Snowman by Jennifer Jackson for Newton' Nook Designs - Newton's Curious Christmas Stamp set


I LOVE kraft paper - and Christmas Kitties!!

Today I'm sharing two cute kitty cards using our brand new Newton's Curious Christmas Stamp set. I'm having SO MUCH FUN with this new set - the images are so fun to color! For these two cards I stamped the images onto Kraft card stock and colored them with colored pencils! I'm just loving how this looks. I especially like how you can add white coloring to really make it pop - like I did on the snowman card - and then I stamped some snowflakes with white ink too.
