Newton's Nook Designs September 2016 Release ~ Newton's BOO-tiful Night!! =)

Pin It



HELLO!!
SQUEAL!! Who's ready for the
Newton's Nook Designs September Release!!?? Today we're showcasing the New "Newton's BOO-tiful Night" Stamp Set!! This set is just too SWEET!!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE ALL of the Images and the Sentiments and think you will too!!??  =)
 
Lights ON!!   =)
Lights OFF!!   =)
See I told you!! Just so FUN!! So for today's Card I decided it need to be SPECIAL!! I've been seeing LOTS of the CHIBI Lights Cards and thought it was the PERFECT time to break them out and use them for my Card today!! I went with a pretty complicated Design and if I had to do it over I would have started with something ALOT more Simple for my FIRST CHIBI Light Card, but it turned out AWESOME!! So I guess it was WORTH ALL of the FUN!! LOL!! =)
I Stamped and Embossed my Images First and then had to create my Scene which I Watercolored and did some Colored Embossing for the Moon the Stars and Sentiment!! I used Distress Inks for my Background and then added some Distress Paint Splatters in Black Soot and Picket Fence!! I also Die Cut a Pretty Pink Posh Picket Fence Die Cut to finish off the Scene!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the way they turned out!! Then I had to Create my Holes for the Lights to shine from!! I First used an Exacto Knife and removed the Pumpkin Faces!! Then colored around the Edges with a Black Soot Distress Marker!! Then I Traced a Piece of Vellum to be the backer to my Pumpkins and colored it a Soft Yellow with a Copic Marker!! Then I Traced the Face Images onto my two Base Panels!! I had to punch through BOTH Pieces to get the lights to shine through!! =) Then I created a Multiple Simple Circuit in order to use 3 Lights one for each of the Pumpkin Faces!! I watched two Helpful Videos!!
One by Jennifer Mcquire and one here by MFT Stamps!! These helped a TON when it came time to design my Circuit on the main Card Base!! I added some Sequins and my Card was done!! SQUEAL!! Then just a WARNING!! If you have Littles that like to ADMIRE your creations be CARFEFUL!! They WILL be AMAZED at these and WILL WARE the Batteries out while looking at them!! My boys played with it SO MUCH I had to add a New Battery just to get the Pictures!! LOL!! =) So just a NOTE if you've been wanting to try these they are FUN to make and pack a HUGE WOW FACTOR!! =)

I hope you feel INSPIRED!!??
