I can hardly believe we are actually to the final day of reveals for the Newton’s Nook August release! It’s been so fun sharing creations with you and I hope you’ve enjoyed it too! Today we have 2 more stamp sets to reveal and I have a card to share for each.
Heartfelt Fall stamps
Signs of Fall stamps and dies
First I’m going to share my card featuring the Heartfelt Fall stamp set. I shared a heat embossing technique with you for these busy background stamps so today I wanted to share a version where I colored the whole thing with my copic markers. It was so relaxing and colored up very quickly considering the size of the images.
After I colored the leaves, I die cut the image with the scalloped heart in the Heart Frames die set. Then I went around the edge with a teal marker to help the leaves pop a little more. Next, I took a darker teal panel and trimmed it to 4 1/8×5 3/8 so it left a really thin border of the card base but not much. I inked this panel up with a darker teal ink and the Basketweave stencil. This panel is popped up with foam tape and so is the heart.
For the sentiment, I die cut a vellum banner from the Banner Trio set and heat embossed the sentiment in copper. Then I cut another banner from the same teal cardstock as the stenciled panel. I carefully hid adhesive behind the heat embossing to adhere the 2 together and then added them to the heart with foam squares. For finishing touches on this card, I added a scattering of pearls from my stash across the design.
For my final card I am using the awesome Signs of Fall stamp set. Today I’m using it on its own to really make it the focal point but I have plans to definitely combine it with other great Newton fall images very soon!
I stamped and colored the images in the set with my copic markers and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. Then I placed the sign image back in my MISTI and stamped a sentiment on the sign. It’s so cool how all of these sentiments fit in the sign or you could use them out of it too!
Next, I die cut a scalloped circle from Circle frames from brown cardstock and another circle from yellow. Then I did some tone-on-tone inking with the Houdstooth stencil and adhered my layers together with foam tape.
For the background panel, I ink blended distress oxides on a white panel in gathered twigs, mowed lawn and carved pumpkin. I spritzed it with water and adhered it to a card base. I wrapped twine around the left side and tied it in a bow. Then I popped the focal circle in the center of the card front.
For finishing touches I added glossy accents to the flower centers, pumpkin stems and glass on the lantern. This card is the epitome of fall to me. I just love the colors and the image and it makes me crave crisp mornings and crunchy leaves!
