Newton's Nook Designs September Release - Introducing Spooky Street


Today marks the third day of NND's September release, and boy, oh boy, this one is a good one!!!!   I was so excited to see the images in this set.   They're awesome, and so bold!!  

I started with another Distress Ink-ed background and some spooky clouds cut out of vellum.   Love these!!!   I stamped the haunted house with Versamark and covered it with Sticky Embossing Powder.   Once that heated up, I sprinkled on Distress Glitter in Black Soot.   I colored in the windows with a marker.   The little cemetery stamp got the same treatment, but I used a finer silvery glitter for that.   I added the moon to the night sky, and layered some rolling hills in shades of grey.   The sentiment on vellum with some gems finishes this one off!  


I made some pumpkin cookies today, and thought it'd be cute to pack them up in one of these little bags I found at Target in the Dollar Spot the other day.   (They had some other really cute things - chalkboard labels, gift boxes, etc.  Check it out!)   I stamped the tree image and the Halloween sentiment and covered the sentiment with a Copic Spica pen for a little glitter.   The sequins on the branches are from Pretty Pink Posh.   Simple & cute - and yummy too!

  1. Oh my GOSH! That goodie bag is TOO CUTE! (and YES - Target's Dollar Spot DOES have WAY too many cute things right now! It is too easy to keep saying 'THIS is just a dollar (pop in cart), and THIS is just a dollar (pop in cart) and THIS...' and then you get to the register and wonder why the total is so high, LOL!!) Hope you don't mind if I totally CASE that idea! ;) I love all the hills you created on your spooky card and THOSE CLOUDS - OMG! LOVE!!! You are rocking this release Woman! ~ Meredith

  7. Love the house embossed with the black powder. It really makes it pop and look old and weathered.
    The vellum clouds are great. Hadn't thought about using vellum for the clouds.
    thanks for sharing a darling card.

  14. I just love that moon hiding behind the vellum cloud. I would never have thought to use vellum for a cloud, but it really is a wow factor!
