today we're sharing the Newton's Perfect Pumpkin mini stamp set! it's SO ADORABLE!

this set is SO fun!! it's perfect for creating scenes, clean and simple or one layer cards! that witch hat is adroable and i LOVE the mini pumpkins with jack-o-lantern faces you can add if desired!


here's my first card:
 



i heat embossed in clear, the spider web image onto the background.then used gold ink to stamp the sentment (using Simply Sentimental and  Love a-la Carte!). the pumpkins are my favorite part though!


i colored them with some white-ish copics, and then added gold glitter and glossy acents on top of that! lots of fun texture going on here! 

my second card is super fun too!! 




i colored the main image from the set with some copics and then popped it up over that mysterious background! lol! i used patterned paper which i then added peacock feathers and chipped saphire distress inks (watered down) to! once that was dry, i added the black stars with a stencil! 




i added a tiny bit of washi tape the base of the card, and that finished it off! :)

  6. The webs are such a nice subtle touch on your first card, and the stars on your second card are a perfect back drop for Newton.

  7. I love the sparkly pumpkins. Just embossing part of them was a good idea. Stamping all of the webs on the background was fun too.
    the other card is great. Just that the first one caught my eye.
    thanks for sharing.
