Shades of Autumn with Newton’s Nook Designs

Hello my crafty friends! It is officially fall and I am celebrating by sharing this card with you today, showcasing the Shades of Autumn stamp, along with the Fall-ing For You stamp set.   This card was inspired by Angelica Conrad from The Greetery.  The color combination that she used in her card was stunning and I knew I just had to try it.



To begin, I stamped the sentiment from the Fall-Ing For You stamp set with Spectrum Noir Finesse Alcohol-Proof Ink in Rustic Brown on an A2-size card panel.  Next, I stamped the leaves randomly with Worn Lipstick and Aged Mahogany, Scattered Straw and Fossilized Amber, with Crushed Olive and Forest Moss.  I used my mini sponge daubers to intensify the colors and create deeper shadows.


I pressed my Aged Mahogany ink pad onto an acrylic block and added some water, then used my watercolor brush to mix it well and flicked it onto my card panel for added texture.



To finish my design, I adhered the Gold Rhinestone jewels with liquid glue for added dimension.  This card is very simple and can be easily mass-produced.  Here’s another look:



I hope you like my card today.  The supplies I use are listed and linked below.  Thank you so much for stopping by and happy fall season everyone!



Pumpkin Spice & You with Newton’s Nook Designs

Today, I’m sharing another fall/coffee-theme card with one of my favorite stamp sets released last month called Pumpkin Latte.  I don’t know about you, but I am just so ready for sweater weather!  It is still extremely HOT and humid over here and I am dreaming of some cooler weather, or even rain!   Who else is getting antsy and waiting for fall to come?


To begin, I stamped my images using Spectrum Noir Alcohol Proof Dye Ink in Rustic Brown on some Neenah solar white card stock.  I colored my images in with my Copic and Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.  I used the coordinating dies, to die-cut the images.


On another piece of Neenah solar white card stock, I die-cut a frame and used the negative piece to mask-off some Bristol smooth white card stock.  I used the new Hills & Grass Stencil to add my grassy hill with Mowed Lawn distress oxide ink.  I flipped the stencil so that I can create another grassy hill for added depth and dimension.  I also used the Clouds Stencil with Carved Pumpkin and Worn Lipstick distress oxide inks to create my fall sky.



Before I adhered my frame on my colored background, I used my Fog ink to stamp small images all over the card.  I wanted to add more details to the background but without overwhelming the whole design.  I foam-mounted the frame on the card and adhered the leaves along the side with some liquid adhesive.


Lastly, I foam-mounted the focal image on my card.  I stamped the sentiment from the Fall-ing For You stamp set using my Misti stamping tool for more precision.  Here’s my card:



The Fall-ing For You stamp set is one of my all-time favorite stamps by Newton’s Nook Designs.   This card is really simple but I love the bold sentiment and also love the colors I used on this card.  Here’s a closer look:
