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.

Do you remember a few years back when the altered lunch tins were all the rage?  Well, I've had a couple in my keeps and ran across them the other day.  I thought one dressed up in Authentique Paper would be perfect for Christmas, so I chose the Festive Collection and coordinating stamps from Unity, Naughty or Nice (which is now on SALE!)
 In times past I have covered the top of the tin (when I actually had a pattern), but I  went with tons of colorful ribbons and stamped tags on the handle instead.
 After measuring the height of the body, I cut two strips of "Joyful" paper into 5x12".
Next, I cut two strips of "Glistening" paper int…
