Newton's Nook Designs' September Release ~ Final Day



Welcome back for the last day of Newton's Nook Designs' September Release!  Today we debut a fun & festive fall & Halloween set featuring my favorite symbol of the season - Pumpkins!!  Introducing 'Pick A Pumpkin':


And did I mention it has a DIE that coordinates PURRfectly too?!!  ;)


Cool right?  I decide to make a few Halloween cards with today's sneaked supplies:

The first card I just had fun playing with traditional Halloween colors and all the patterns Jen included in the set along with the coordinating die (I think the stem looks pretty just cut out without the stamping!):

Here's a tip if you need to crank out a lot of mini cards or tags FAST - you can use the the pumpkin and jack-o-lantern face on the same piece of orange cardstock and if you adhere it to black cardstock the 'carved' face shows through without having to cut the facial features out separately and glue them in place. like I did here in this mini Halloween card (I just love making little 3" x 3" mini cards!  They are so cute to tuck into lunch boxes, presents, etc.).  So for this card all you need to do is hold the pumpkin & face dies in place with a little washi or painter's tape on a piece of orange cardstock and do the same with the stem die on a teenie scrap of green or brown cardstock - run it through your die cut machine ONCE and adhere in place - VOILA!  Easy peasy!

I am really loving what you did with this stamp set. The patterns and colors you chose really make the pumpkins pop! That purple argyle makes me happy <3 I love how you matched the polka-dots on the patterned paper with the ink colors, too. Overall, excellent composition! Keep up the awesome work!
