Happy Halloween by Becky features Spiderweb, Batty Newton, Frames & Flags, Spooky Street, and Circle Frames by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
 Becky Noelle fun interpretation of the sketch showcases the little spider image from the Spooky Street stamp set. Set on a black-scalloped frame die cut using the Frames & Flags die set, she adds a white cobweb using the Spiderweb stencil on a white-splattered black background.  She uses a circle die from the Circle Frames die set and pulls her frame apart at a diagonal.  She adds the sentiment from the Batty Newton stamp set.  Doesn't that spider look darling hanging hanging from the black twine!  Eeek!

Make a wish by Crystal features Balloon Shaker and Frames & Flags by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Crystal Komara's brightly colored birthday card is sure to delight the recipient . On a purple-scalloped frame cut using the Frames & Flags die set , Crystal adds rainbow-colored paper set on a diagonal.  Using the Balloon Shaker die set, she stamps the bold sentiments from the Birthday Essentials stamp set in the center of the balloons and adds color-coordinating sequins!  Let the celebrations begin!

Meow you doing by Debbie features Newton Unwinds and Frames & Flags by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook, #cardmaking,
 Debbie Owens use of the dotted line embossing folder and string pattern paper provide a fabulous background to showcase the feline from the Newton Unwinds stamp set on his giant ball of yarn!  She die cuts her pattern paper using the rounded-corner die from the Frames & Flags die set to give her panel a stitched look.  The little ball of yarn below the sentiment is a fun, playful touch!  

Trick or treat by Diane features Newton's Costume Party, Circle Frames, and Frames & Flags die set by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook, #halloween, #cardmaking
Diane Morales uses bright, bold stripes against a black card base to make a striking Halloween card.  Her black card base has been die cut using the scalloped-frame from the Frames & Flags die set. She die cuts her white circle using the Circle Frames die set and stamps the sentiment. Her trio of costume-clad felines from the Newton's Costume Party stamp set and coordinating die set look ready for a night of trick-or-treating!

Happy Haunting by Sue T. features Spooky Roundabout and Circle Frames by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook, #cardmaking, #halloween
Sue T.'s Halloween card is sure to spook. For her diagonal stripes, Sue uses a combination of Halloween paper and Washi tape in traditional Halloween colors--orange and black.  She then adds the Spooky Roundabout image from the Spooky Roundabout stamp set and die cuts using the large circle die from Circle Frames die set.  She then stamps an additional roundabout and fussy cuts the ghosts out.  She adds them to her card with some foam tape to have them pop up!  How fun!
