Best witches by Debbie features Witchy Newton, Bokeh, Ghosts, and Frames & Flags by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Debbie Owens starts with a purple card base on which she adds black and white washi tape to the right edge. She then creates a haunting background by using the Bokeh Stencil set with lime green and purple distress inks.  She then uses the Ghosts Stencil and white ink to add the ghosts. To make the panel she uses a die from the Frames & Flags die set. Using the largest banner die, she adds the black banner on which she embosses the sentiment from the Witchy Newton stamp set. She adds the lime green ribbon before adhering the kitty in her purple boot using dimensional tape. Eerily fun!

Happy Halloween by Diane features Candy Corn by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Diane Morales creates a round shaker card filled with sweet delights! She stamps candy corn throughout her background and adds orange, white, and black sequins as well as colored candy corn cutouts using the Candy Corn stamp and die set. She completes her shaker card by adding her Halloween sentiment (Halloween Trio stamp set) on a wavy banner and a trio of candy corns and a bit of black polka-dotted ribbon. Super cute!

Have a be-witch-ing good time by Sue features Witchy Newton, Flying Bats, and Framework by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Sue T. also uses the Witchy Newton stamp and die set to great her Halloween card!  Beginning with an orange card base, she die cuts her black panel using the Framework die set.  She die cuts out a circular window in which she places her batty background. She creates this background using the Flying Bats stencil. She then lightly distresses a full moon over the bats. She adheres the panel with dimensional tape. She stamps the kitty image from the Witchy Newton stamp and die set and colors in colors of Halloween. She adheres this with dimensional tape along with a couple of spooky bats!

Wishing you a spooky Halloween by Becky features Spooky Streets, Creepy Cameos, and Land Borders by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Using only black and white, Becky Noelle creates this spectacular Halloween card!  She begins with a black card base and speckles with white.  She adds white hills using the Land Borders die set and speckling in black. She stamps the tree, bats, haunted house, and gravestones from the Spooky Street stamp set and adheres to her scene. She pulls the spooky sentiment from the Creepy Cameos stamp set and stamps in black.  A delightfully scary Halloween card!

Happy Halloween by Bobbi features Raccoon Rascals and Speech Bubbles by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Bobbi Lemanski creates a spooky nighttime background in which these mischievous rascals can play. Those little fellows are from the Raccoon Rascals stamp. By coloring the trash can in shades of orange, Bobbi gives her card the perfect touch of Halloween colors. She adds a speech bubble using the Speech Bubbles die set with the fun surprise sentiment. She finishes with embossing the Halloween sentiment in white.  A creative way to re-purpose this fun stamp set!
