Halloween & PS Card - Newtons Nook PumpkinLatte - Newtons Nook HoppyGreetings

Do not have any actual Halloween Newton's Nook stamps/dies so I combined Pumpkin Latte stamp/die with an out of the box or in this case I should say out of the 'Sign' stamp/die eliminating the Spring Bunny & Flowers and using pumpkin, leaf, sentiment with a touch of my calligraphy.















Halloween at our house is time for hubby to carve a Halloween pumpkin. Instead of using a real pumpkin like we use to use many years ago we now use styrofoam pumpkins. Hubby uses his Dremmel tools. You can see last year pumpkin, Child Yoda, below and for any others you can see them on my blog rightsidebar. Not sure what this year Halloween pumpkin theme will be. 



















calligraphy: hand wrote 'Halloween and'

cardstock/paper: orange, white  pattern - plaid

CTMH: ink - Nectarine

marker: Copics 

Newton's Nook: stamp/die - Pumpkin Latte,

  Hoppy Greetings  Sign  (cut the bunny away &

    placed a pumpkin where the flower was)

other: white cardboard (from cereal box) for sentiment

pen: Le Pen black (for eyes)

Tim Holtz: Distress Ink - walnut stain
