Newton’s Nook August Release – Day 2

Thanks for stopping by again. Today we’ve got even more fall fun to share with you! A few stamp sets and one coordinating die set. Let’s jump right in.

Paw-tumn Stamps and Dies

With all of this goodness, I’ve got 2 cards to share with you today. I had so much fun creating both of them; I hope you enjoy them!

For my fall roundabout card, I started by stamping my image on Bristol smooth cardstock and watercolored with my zig clean color real brush markers. Then I took out the circle frame dies and cut it out, along with creating a frame from the same cardstock. I create a circle shaker feature and set it aside to work on the rest of my card.

I used various Nuvo embellishment mousses on cardstock, let them dry and die cut autumn leaves from the panels. I cut an A2 panel from kraft cardstock and used the houndstooth stencil with brown ink. I arranged my leaves under the shaker mechanism and adhered them with liquid glue. Then I adhered my shaker and moved on to a sentiment. I love that the sentiments in the roundabout sets work perfectly with the banner trio dies so I die cut a banner and stamped my sentiment on it. Then I went around the letters with a light blue zig marker for a little extra interest. The banner was then folded on the crease lines and adhered with liquid glue.

For this amazingly adorable paw-tumn set, I’ve got some great slimline fun to share with you. I started by coloring my images with copics and then used the coordinating dies to cut them all out. I stamped extra leaves, pumpkins and acorns because I wasn’t sure how many I would want in my scene. Pulling from the fall colors I used on the images, I die cut a panel from kraft cardstock using the slimline frames and portholes dies. Then I cut a frame from dark brown using the slimline frames and windows dies. I stamped the leaves all over the kraft panel and adhered the dark brown frame with liquid glue. Then I popped that panel up with foam tape on a golden yellow card base. I arranged my images and adhered them with a combination of foam squares and liquid glue.

For the sentiment, I die cut a flag from Frames & Flags die set and heat embossed it in white. I wrapped some baker’s twine around the end and glued one last leaf to the end. Then I popped it up with foam squares. For finishing touches on this card, I added glossy accents to various parts of the images like sunflower centers, acorn tops, leaves and pumpkin stems.
