For our first day of the reveals, we are showcasing TWO new stamp sets and TWO AMAZING stencils – the Newton’s Thanksgiving stamp set and coordinating dies, Newton’s Cornucopia stamp set and coordinating dies with the Pumpkin Patch and Tree Rings stencil.  I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the September release.  Fall is my favorite season and the stamp sets and stencils are must-haves for sure!  Here’s what they look like:




To start, I stamped my images on some Neenah solar white card stock with my memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored them in with my Copic markers.  I chose a brown hybrid ink because it is the fall season and I wanted the images to stay on the warmer side.  I die-cut the images with its coordinating dies.

I cut some Bristol smooth white card stock and inked up my background with some Antique Linen and Tattered Rose distress oxide inks.  I splattered it with Vintage photo distress oxide ink and blotted it dry with my paper towel.

I used the Land Borders die to create the hills and inked it up with Mowed Lawn distress oxide ink.  I die-cut the rest of the elements that I needed to create my fall scene.  I used the leaves from the Autumn Newton stamp set  from last year to adorn the trees.


This image is so adorable!  This is definitely how I feel every Thanksgiving!  Stuffed to the gills!


For my second card, I stamped the images with Memento Rich Cocoa ink from the Newton’s Cornucopia stamp set and colored it in with Copics as well.  I inked up another Bristol smooth white card stock with Tattered Rose distress oxide and used Vintage photo to splatter brown dots onto the background.  I blotted it dry with some paper towel.

I used the new Tree rings stencil and used Vintage Photo distress oxide to color my background.  Let me tell you, this new Tree Rings stencil is so beautiful, it’s a must-have for sure!  I stamped my sentiment on black card stock and heat-embossed it with some white embossing powder.  Here’s my second card:


I adorned the card with more leaves from the Autumn Newton stamp set.  To finish my design, I used my white gel pen to add some dot details to the cornucopia, pumpkins and the apples.  Here’s a little close-up:
