Newton's Nook Designs August Release - Halloween Trio, Candy Corn, and Boo Hoo + coordinating Dies

hi there!
today is the last day of reveals for Newton's Nook Designs August release!

I am super in love with this release!
these sets are so FUN and perfect for the back to school days and Halloween coming up, too!
today we're sharing the classic and so adorable and FUN Halloween Trio, Candy Corn, and Boo Hoo + coordinating dies
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 August 17th, right here!

my first card uses the cute cute Candy Corn stamp set and dies!

I colored in the images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers, and then used the coordinating dies to die cut them out! 
I also used that frame from the Framework Die Set! I die cut it out 5 times and stacked them together to add some dimension and height!
then, I placed my little candy corns in a happy little procession!

I used Wilted Violet, Blueprint Sketch and Peacock Feathers to add color to the background! then splattered some water and ink color too! (my FAVORITE thing to do...)
lastly, I tied a bow around the edge of the frame with some grey and white twine, because...why not? it's fun, and different for me! :)

my second card is fun, and **almost** turned out exactly how I imagined! ha!

I used Boo Hoo and the coordinating dies, as well as the newly released Flying Bats stencil!
I ink blended the circled area in Mustard Seed, Squeezed Lemonade and Fossilized Amber and then added the ink splatters. I die cut out a circle shape from a piece of white cardstock, and then used that over the ink blended panel!
then I used white embossing paste and the bat stencil to add them to the card! LOVE how it goes over the die cut area and beyond! (I picked up that fun idea from Tatiana Trafimovich, check out my inspiration here! it's FREAKING AWESOME!)

then I colored the ghosts 'purple' but I wanted the shine from the 'moon' to reflect through them, so the tops of the ghosts are purple! I tried!! and like I said, it's ALMOST exactly what I envisioned! 
oh, and glitter!! ghosts need glitter, right?!

my last card uses the adorable Halloween Trio image...and I LOVE THESE trick or treaters!!

love it!
I used Seedless Preserves, Abandoned Coral, Picked Raspberry and Dried Marigold Distress inks for the background! SO IN LOVE!
then I sprinkled some water, white acrylic ink and Dried Marigold Distress Ink color on the background, too! 

the sentiment was heat embossed onto a strip of black cardstock and then I added some sequins for some sparkle and magic!
