Newton's Nook Designs September Release- Falling In To Autumn


Hi!  It's day two of the Newton's Nook Designs September Release!  Today we are showcasing the Falling in to Autumn set- boy is it a nice one!  Pretty autumn leaves and sentiments to go along with them!  Here is what I made:


I started with a natural white card base and splattered green mist over it.  Once it was dry, I added a strip of orange washi tape and some patterned papers to the left side.  I popped up the last yellow one and also added a mini staple for embellishment.  I added the thread next, carefully tucking it under the yellow strip.
I stamped the viney leaves next with kraft colored ink.  I also stamped the sentiment with a dark brown ink.  I stamped the leaves onto a big of extra natural white cardstock and fussy cut around them.  I added them to my card using foam adhesive so it would pop up.


Aren't those leaves pretty?  I love the entire set!

Riverside Card for the Waffle Flower Challenge

Hi!  I have two posts up today so don't forget to scroll down to see what I made for Newton's Nook Designs this month!

Have you had a chance to play along with the current Waffle Flower Challenge?  There is a great sketch and fun technique to challenge you this month!  My card today is inspired by the technique challenge to stamp a scene- although, now that I look at it, I was inspired by the sketch, too!!


I stamped a scene using the Riverside stamp set, adding some layers with the Riverside die set.  I stuck with pretty blues, greens, grays, and a lot of white.   The card base has been embossed with a woodgrain embossing folder- a play on the forest trees.  The clouds have been embossed with white embossing powder for another layer of texture.


I hope you have time to play along with the Waffle Flower Challenge this month!  It's a fun one with so many possibilities!

Newton's Nook Designs September Release- Perfect Pumpkin


It's release week for Newton's Nook Designs!  They have 4 new sets this month and boy are they fun!  We are featuring Perfect Pumpkin today- an adorable mini set that includes cute little Newton dressed up as a witch:


I colored the kitty with a mix of Copics and Prismacolor pencils.  I also paper pieced the little hat with polka-dot patterned paper.

The papers are from Stampin' Up!'s Motley Monsters collection.  I thought the colors were so pretty together and don't they compliment this cute image well!  :)

Dance in the Rain Card for Butterfly Reflections Ink

I'm so excited to be guest designing for Butterfly Reflections Ink today! I've been shopping their online shop since my local store closed and am always happy with the great service and fun products!


The cute Over the Rainbow stamp set really caught my eye- I love the mix of images and sentiments!
The idea for this card came from the 'dance in the rain' sentiment. I thought it would be cute to make the umbrellas look like they were dancing in the rain.  I stamped the umbrellas first, using 4 different colored inks.  Then I stamped the sentiment just above.  I added some splatters next and when they were dry I added a few sequins.


This set is really cute!  I can't wait to get it inky again :)
I hope you get a chance to pop over to the Butterfly Reflections Ink store- they have so many cute things in stock!
Thanks for sound by today!

Hang In There Card

Hello!  Hope your morning is starting off well!  I've got a busy day ahead of me with two extra cute little boys visiting!  I thought I'd better pop on and share my card while I had a chance.  I created this one with the adorable Hanging Around set by Newton's Nook Designs:


Isn't he a cutie!  I stamped him on to white cardstock and colored him using Copic and Stampin' Up! Blendabilities.  I fussy cut around him and then pieced him on to the sky blue panel.  I stamped the clouds next, using Versamark and heat embossed them with white powder.  I used Copics to do a little shading around them.  I added the stitched line last, using a needle and thread to stitch something for him to hang on to!


The papers are from the Solstice 6x6 pad by Pink Paislee.  I love the mix of patterns in that one!  So pretty!  I added the chevron pattern to my card front and added the blue panel over the top of it.  I used just a bit of a couple other patterns to embellish along the bottom.  I added my sentiment just above the papers and finished it off with a few epoxy dots.

Well, with that, I better get going!  those cutie boys will be here any minute!  Thanks for stopping by today!

Joyful Wishes Card

Hi!  I'm finally catching up on things around here and have a little time to blog again!  Yay!  The girls have been back to school for a week now and things are finally slowing down.  I picked up a few things from the new Lawn Fawn release last week- so many cute things!!  I thought I'd try out the newest Lawnscaping Challenge with them.  The challenge this time is One Layer Cards and this idea popped in to my head instantly:


I pulled out one of these adorable new note cards to use as my card base.  I diecut the snowflakes in to one side- they are from the new Stitched Snowflakes set.  Next I stamped the sentiment and the diamonds from the Joy to the Woods set with Versamark.  I embossed them using white powder.


I splattered the card front with a bit of silver and white mist next and when it was dry, added a few sequins to accent it all.  I also added a bit of twine to the top.  I love how it turned out!  It's even prettier in person :)


I'm so glad I had time to play along with this challenge- I'm sure it will be a popular one with all the new goodies people have!  Too fun!


Thanks for popping by to see me today!
