Halloween Pocket Letter by Ellen Haxelmans

 Halloween Pocket Letter by Ellen Haxelmans | Newton's Boo-tiful Night, Witchy Newton, Candy Corn Stamp Sets by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

Pocket Letter!

Today Ellen has created a fun Halloween themed pocket letter. She started with a page protector with built in pockets (the kind you find for trading cards or scrapbooking albums). Then she had the idea to fill the pockets with stamped items and treats for the recipient!
Halloween Pocket Letter by Ellen Haxelmans | Newton's Boo-tiful Night Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade
The top pocket has a fun Halloween scene featuring the kitty on the broom from our Newton’s Boo-tiful Night Stamp Set. She colored the image and cut the kitty out using the coordinating Newton's Boo-tiful Night Die Set. She layered the kitty over a starry sky that she had created using our Starfield Stencil with silver paste. the sky also includes clouds created with our Sky Borders Die Set. Last, she added in little bats from our Witchy Newton Stamp Set.
Halloween Tag by Ellen Haxelmans | Fancy Edges Tag Die Set and Candy Corn Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade
The center pocket contains a cute tag that folds closed to hold candy. She created this tag using our Fancy Edges Tag Die Set. Then she added a decorative square over the tag using our Frames Squared Die Set.  She added in candy corn from our Candy Corn Stamp Set and candy pieces from our Hoppy Halloween Stamp Set.  She also added in that cute little bird from our Newton’s Easter Basket stamp Set. She used the coordinating dies from these sets to cut out the images.

Then, for the bottom panel she created a bag from a paper bag that had a spiderweb printed on it. Over this she layered the image of the kitty in the boot from our Witchy Newton Stamp Set. She used the coordinating Witchy Newton Die Set to cut out the image. She also added the sentiment, layered over two flags that were cut out using our Frames & Flags Die Set.
Tips on creating this card!
Below we have some tips from Ellen on how she created this unique project!

Halloween Pocket Letter Tutorial by Ellen Haxelmans | Stamps, Stencil, and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade
  1. First I colored the illustrations. As you can see, I colored them in the same color scheme. This makes it easy to make them fit together.
  2. For the pockets I decided to go with black, yellow and blue. The blue color was created by using distress inks. For the top card I also used the Starfield Stencil with Metallix Gel to make it looks like a night sky.
  3. For one of the cards I used a spiderweb paper bag. This makes it possible to add goodies.
Halloween treat tag Tutorial by Ellen Haxelmans | Stamps and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade
  1. For the middle part I first created a shaker pocket. With the help of my fuse tool I sealed the pocket that holds sequins. The "Trick or Treat" word die from the Newton's Halloween Trio Die Set was perfect to fit in a circle. This made it possible to add it easily on the pocket.
  2. The other side got a tag. To add candy on the tag I simply used a glue dot.
What a fun and unique way create a special treat for someone sweet!

I Love Fall Most of All Card by September Guest Designer Stephanie Davis

Hello everyone! I'm so happy to be back guesting again with Newton's Nook!! Today I'm sharing a fall card inspired by the adorable Autumn Mice stamp set. My favorite way to make cards is to combine old and new stamp sets, it's so fun and I often can't help myself!



When I began creating this card, I found so many sets that went perfectly to build a wreath of fall mice. First, I cut out my card panel out of kraft cardstock using the Framed Square Die. Then I stamped multiple images from Autumn Mice, Garden Mice, Pumpkin Latte, and Harvest Tails onto masking paper and cut them out. Then began building my wreath and attached all of the masks with washi tape to a circle stencil. This made it simple to place each stamp before stamping with my MISTI. I stamped each image with a no line coloring ink pad. Then colored all of the images with Copic Markers, using the no line coloring technique. I after coloring with Copic markers, I love to add even more shadows and detail with colored pencils.



Then I stamped the sentiment from Fall Fringe with black ink in the center of the wreath. Lastly, I blended some Distress Ink in Aged Mahogany using the Falling Leaves Stencil. I thought the blended leaves looked so beautiful peeking behind the card panel. I adhered the card panel to the card base using foam squares to complete the card. I had so much fun coloring all of these adorable images, it truly was a labor of love!

I have a tutorial of this card on my YouTube channel, if you would like to see my process.

Just a Little Note!

Today Andrea created an adorable card that's perfect for sending a note to a friend who likes dogs! She created this card combining elements from several different stamp sets.

STAMPtember Exclusive: Let's Pawty Stamp Set

STAMPtember Exclusive: Let's Pawty Dog and Cat Birthday Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

Today we are featured on the Simon Says Stamp site with an EXCLUSIVE stamp set that we designed for the 2019 STAMPtember celebration! How cool is that? I know many of you LOVE shopping over at Simon Says Stamp so make sure you head over there today and check out our exclusive Let's Pawty Stamp Set. These items are only available through Simon Says Stamp while supplies last!


This stamp set is called Let's Pawty and it features cute dogs and cats that are perfect for creating birthday cards and more! You can find it ONLY at Simon Says Stamp!

And, of course, I had to play with the set to show you what you can create with it!  I created a duo of cards using the same layout, one with a dog and one with a cat!

Cat and Dog Birthday cards by Jennifer Jackson using the STAMPtember Exclusive: Let's Pawty Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade
For the cat themed card I stamped the image of the kitty to start. Then I masked off the kitty's hand and added the balloon on top. That way the string goes behind the hand and it looks like he's holding it. Of course I had to color the kitty orange, since our kitty Newton is an orange tabby. I used Zig Clean Color Brush Markers to color the image. Once the kitty and balloon were colored, I masked off the whole kitty and balloon so I could created a background. I used our Clouds Stencil for the sky and our Hills & Grass Stencil for the ground. 
Cat Birthday card by Jennifer Jackson using the STAMPtember Exclusive: Let's Pawty Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade
I added the sentiment "Let's Paw-ty from the new stamp set, embossed in white on a banner that was cut out using our Frames & Flags Die Set.  I also used our Frames & Flags Die Set to cut out the stitched rectangle panel and the scalloped edged panel. I finished the card by stamping the birthday hat from the set and fussy cutting it out to add to the kitty. 
Cat Birthday card by Jennifer Jackson using the STAMPtember Exclusive: Let's Pawty Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade
For the dog themed card I created the card the same way, stamping the image of the dog and then masking his paw to add the balloon. Again, I colored the image with watercolor markers and then masked it off to add the background with our Clouds Stencil for the sky and our Hills & Grass Stencil for the ground. 
Dog Birthday card by Jennifer Jackson using the STAMPtember Exclusive: Let's Pawty Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade
Again, I used our rames & Flags Die Set for the stitched and scalloped edges and the black banner. On this card I used the "Happy Birthday" Sentiment.

I hope you like the idea of creating two cards that are similar but just a little different! It's a great way to save time while you are card making because you don't have to think about each layout and can use the same one several times! 

I hope you liked my projects today and using this new exclusive set. 
Remember, you can only get this design at Simon Says Stamp while supplies last! 

Some of the Newton's Nook Designs Team was also able to play along with this new set!
