Hello my name is Waleska Galindo. I live in the beautiful Guatemala City, Central America, I am probably the only stamper around here.  I have a wonderful husband and 2 full of energy kids. I have always loved art and making things with my hands.  I am a Graphic Designer that fell in love with cardmaking 3 years ago, I think I just enjoy the process of being creative, so when I discover the Cardmaking world just fit me perfectly.   I am a very passionate in all I do and stamping and cardmaking are not the exception.  I love making scene cards and using stamps in creative ways. 

Besides cardmaking I am also a Fashion Designer, Movie lover and Stamp Collector... You can find me blogging at craftinglovew.blogspot.com but I mostly share my cards on my Instagram craftinglovew.  
I am super excited to be a Guest Designer for Newton's Nook and I am truly thankful for the opportunity!! Specially for this Halloween Season which is my favorite.  That is me!!! 

Hello Friends Waleska from craftinglovew here... 
I am so excited to be Newton's Nook October Guest Designer thank you so much for inviting me. I first have to admit I am a Halloween lover so this past Newton release was just too awesome and perfect for me, I am using a lot of the new stamps and I am having so much fun with them.

CARD DETAILS: 
For my first card I used almost all of the stamps from the Spooky Skeletons Stamp Set. I love to create little scenes on my cards, so the idea for this one was a very Spooky Halloween Decoration. I first stamped the skeletons in Onyx Black Versafine ink and put Black Sparkle embossing powder to have shinning Spooky Skeletons!!! I cut them and set them aside to make the background.

For the background I used Spiced Marmalade Oxide ink and some water splashes.  I also sponged the edges with Walnut Stain regular Distress Ink to give the card a more spooky feel. I stamped in the center of the card the amazing frame or mirror (you can use it for both) from the Creepy Cameos Stamp Set with Versafine Onyx ink and  also put Black Sparkle embossing powder to unify the sparkle vibe on my card.  I create the inside part of the frame by cutting an oval from gray cardstock.

I finally cut a strip of gray cardstock and sponge it with Walnut Stain Distress ink to create the shelf for all the Halloween Spooky Decor and raised all the images with 3D foam... What do you think? Creepy enough? I just wish I have this awesome skeletons to actually decor my living room like this...  I hope you like my card and get some inspiration to start creating halloween cards.  

Have a Spooktacular Day!
