hello again!
welcome to day 2 of Newton's Nook Designs September release!

this month's release is all about fall and halloween!!! It's so fun!!
today the whole team is showing off the Creepy Cameos + coordinating Dies AND Cameo Frame Die!! ! you can totally create a project life type spread, gift tags and, of course, cards! all of the new sets will be available for purchase on September 15th, right here!

I had SO MUCH fun making my cards!
for my first card, I experimented with some foil! 

first, i blended Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink onto m white cardstock panel. then I spritzed A LOT of water into one corner of the paper, LOVE that creepy, water-y, ghost-y look!

next, I used my Heidi Swapp Reactive Paint to lightly cover my stamps, then pressed the stamp image onto a piece of white cardstock. 
*please note - rinse your stamps RIGHT AWAY after this*
once the images were dry, i placed my foil on top, and then ran it through my laminator! the results aren't perfect, but i LOVE the distressed look, with those creepy images! 

so different, and so fun!

my second card uses more Distress Oxide inks! 

i smooshed Picked Raspberry and Seedless Preserves onto a piece of packaging, then spritzed with water and pressed it onto a piece of white cardstock! once it was dry, I added another layer.
while all that drying was going on, I die cut the beautiful frame 4 times and glued it together to add some height.

i die cut the mirror image again out of some foiled cardstock for the inner part of the mirror, then added some white stickles around the outside frame. I stamped the profile image with Distress Oxides of the same colors, then heat embossed the sentiment in silver to match the mirror!
