Pin It



HELLO!!
Welcome to the NEW Cupcake Inspirations Challenge 429!!
Newton's Nook Designs is a Sponsor for this challenge!!

With Halloween just a Day away I wanted to create a Halloween Shaker Card using the NEW Newton's Nook Designs Snow Globe Shaker Die Set, to show that it can be used for MORE than just Winter/Holiday themed Cards!! I paired it with the Images form the Newton's Costume Party Stamp Set, and Die Cut them out using the coordinating Newton's Costume Party Die Set!! Isn't Newton so CUTE all dressed up as a Ghost carrying his Jack-o-Lantern Treat Bucket that I Stamped and Fussy Cut from the Dress Up Doxies Stamp Set!! I colored everything with Copic Markers and created my background wih Distress Inks (Tumbled Glass, Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot)!! I've used the Land Borders Die Set to create the Grass and I used Distress Inks in (Peeled Paint and Mowed Lawn)!! For my Shaker Elements I used some BEAUTIFUL Honey Bee Stamps Sequins and I splattered some ColoriQue Snow Summit Ink for the look of some Stars in the Night Sky!!
I hope you feel INSPIRED to play along for a chance to WIN$25 store credit to the store at newtonsnookdesigns.com!! How AWESOME is that!!??
 I CAN'T WAIT to see what you create!!   =)

THANKS SO MUCH for stopping by and have a FABULOUS WEEK!!

Pin It

HELLO!!
I'm here with a SWEET Card I've made for the
Reverse Confetti Sketch for You to Try Sketch #53!!
I wanted to used two of my NEW Favorite Stamp Sets from Reverse Confetti!! If you missed the October Release, its a MUST see/have!! ;)
I went with a BEAUTIFUL Fall Themed and I LOVE LOVE LOVE the way it turned out!!
 
I Stamped and Embossed the CUTE Squirrel and Acorn Images from the Nuts About You Stamp Set and created a BEAUTIFUL Fall Wreath using the Images from the Fall For You Stamp Set!! I used Copic Markers to Color the Images and added some details (White Gel Pen Freckles, Black Gel Pen Eyes, Nose and Berries, and some Tonic Studios Shimmer Pen on the Sunflowers and Morning Dew Nuvo Drops for the Sunflower Centers) I wanted to create a Girl Squirrel so I added a Sunflower and cut the Arm so I could tuck the Acorn into her hand!! I think its little details like this that make the WHOLE Image/Card come to LIFE!!  =)
For the Background I added some Tumbled Glass Distress Ink, Water Splatters add Texture and then I added some Black Diamond ColoriQue Ink Splatters for even more Texture!! I used the Reverse Confetti Vertical Stripes Cover Panel Die Set to Die Cut some Lawn Fawn Plaid Patterned Paper and then weaved those Negative Strips into the Reverse Confetti Tall Stripe Panel Die to create the Woven Plaid Strip!! I'm in LOVE LOVE LOVE with the look of the Woven Plaid!! Some Wood Grain Patterned Paper and a Strip of Orange Patterned Paper finish off the Background!! I adhered the Wreath/ Squirrel to a Reverse Confetti Pierced Round Top Layers Die Set that I inked with some Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and added Water Splatters for Texture and then I Stamped and Embossed the Sentiment from the Nuts About You Stamp Set!!
I adhered it using Foam Tape and my Card was done!!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE the way it turned out!!
