Newton's Nook: Spooky Street Release!

 Happy Wednesday!  Welcome to Day #3 of the
Newton's Nook September Releases!
Today we're featuring another set of the more 'solid'
stamp images, as I like to call them.
These are so much fun to use when you don't have time
to color in a design or if you just like the clean 'n simple look that they bring!

"Spooky Street" Stamp Set:

My sample card made with this spooky stamp set:
 After die-cutting a circle from some creepy spider paper, I sponged on some
warm yellow ink with a dauber.  Next, I dabbed on some of the same ink on a 
smooth white cardstock and then stamped the house image with Memento Tuxedo Black.

The house was restamped over the bottom of the 'moon'

and then topped with the same image that had been hand-cut from the cardstock.
I had some fun cutting up a little yard from a scrap piece of green paper :)
Patterned papers from Authentique.

♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV. But enough about little 'ole me...let's get on to the give-a-way!

A SN@P December Daily

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
