Newton’s Nook – August Release Day 3

For day 3 of the Newton’s Nook August Release reveals, we switch gears to gorgeous fall things!

Autumn Oval stamps (coordinates with Oval Frames dies)

Autumn Paper Pad

Aren’t these new products just wonderful! I’m totally obsessed with it all. It makes me want to decorate my whole house for fall immediately.

Today, I stamped and heat embossed the Autumn Oval with gold embossing powder on watercolor paper and watercolored it with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. These are my favorite for this technique. It’s so fun and relaxing. Once that was finished and dry, I die cut it with the largest scalloped oval die.

For my sentiment, I cut one of the smaller ovals using the same watercolor paper and heat embossed my sentiment in the same color. Then I took a green marker around the edge of the oval and drug the color inward with a wet paint brush.

Next, I chose 2 patterns from the Autumn paper pad and cut one with the largest oval die and the other was trimmed to A2 size. I adhered the plaid to a white card base and the large oval to that with liquid glue. Finally, I popped the watercolor ovals up with foam squares.

To finish off the design, I wrapped twine around the left side of the card and tied it in a bow. I absolutely LOVE how rustic this card feels. I just love it!

  2. Love your gold embossing & water coloring using classic Fall colors! Orange Gingham paper was a great choice for the background & the twine adds just the right rustic touch!
