Welcome to day 2 of the September release from Newton’s Nook Designs. Are you ready for a little bit of Halloween?? I thought that might be a yes! You are in luck because today we are featuring a new stamp set called Creepy Cameos. It has its own coordinating die set but there is also an additional frame die that is awesome called, simply, Cameo Die.
So don’t fall over from shock. Do you see all that distressing?? Did you know I still knew how to do this, haha?! Well, admittedly, I wasn’t sure either. Let’s face it, clean is kind of where I go these days but somehow my first vision with this set was all about vintage and shabby. So out came Distress Ink and my old distressing tool (pretty impressed that I even found it) and off I went. I took a reinker and dyed some vanilla ribbon the purple color, then added in some black ink too. My fingers “may” have been purple for the rest of the day. The real fun came with the frame. Choosing which image to feature was a tough one. But this “bride of Frankenstein” was too awesome to ignore! I cut two of the frames with the Cameo Die from an old Halloween designer paper and stacked them so that I could curl one up on the edges for dimension. I sponged around the image (cut with the set’s coordinating dies) and put her up on some Dimensionals. Just imagine all the things you can do with these frames and fun cameos! I added the sentiment from the set onto a DSP sheet that I inked and distressed. I did laugh that even in my distressing, this has a clean vibe to it. Ah well, it was fun to get creative with a style a little outside my box. I encourage you to do the same when you can!! And now for the fun part
