Newton’s Nook – Grateful For You

Hello everyone! I’m over on the Newton’s Nook blog today featuring a sweet fall themed slimline card. I had extra fun mixing and matching different products to create a mini scene and got inky with some stenciling too!

I started my design by laying out the images to see how many of each thing I might need to stamp out. Then I stamped and colored the images from Paw-tumn Newton and Autumn Mice and colored them with my copics. I used the coordinating dies to cut them all out and switched gears to my background.

Pulling from the colors I chose to used on the images, I cut an orange panel with the Slimline Frames & Portholes scalloped die and inked it up with the Falling Leaves stencil. I used a dark orange and faded it to a dark yellow on the stencil. Then I took a medium brown and inked the edges of the whole panel. I like the blue in the bow on my milk jug so I cut a blue panel to 3.5×8.5 inches and inked it up with a darker blue ink to deepen the color a bit. I adhered this to a card base and popped the scalloped panel up with foam tape. Then I added my images with foam squares and liquid glue.

I die cut a banner from the Banner Trio set and stamped a sentiment from the Fall Roundabout set on it. Then I die cut a flag from Flags & Frames and heat embossed another sentiment on that. I attached the 2 and adhered them to the card front with foam squares.

For finishing touches, I went with white gel pen accents on the images and a little bit of glossy accents on the acorn hats, pumpkin stems and Newton’s Nose. Then I scattered some Nuvo Glitter Drops in golden sunset across the design.

I just really love the deep, bold colors that come with fall! They are so pretty and I love falling leaves and pumpkins…pretty much everything I included on this card. ❤

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
