I am on the Newton’s Nook Designs blog today with a cute fall card, perfect for anyone you want to say thank you to. My card features several stamps and dies from Newton’s Nook Designs, I love to combine the newer sets with older ones for a different look.
As always I started with stamping and colouring the images with Copics, I used the Deer friend and the new Harvest Tails sets. It is amazing how well these sets coordinate with each other! I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.
Then I wanted to create a background for my scene. I die cut a stitched scalloped rectangle from light blue cardstock using the Frames and flags die set. I cut another peace from pale green too and used one of the Sky border dies to cut a bush.
To give some interest and texture to the background, I stamped the words Thankful and Grateful from the Thankful thought stamp set with Sea Glass ink (Simon Says Stamp). It gave me a very subtle tone-on-tone look. I also stamped a sentiment from the Deer friend stamp set in black, to stand out.
I assembled the card on a cream card base using liquid glue and 3D foam squares. I wanted a dimensional scene, so I added some more pumpkins here and there. I added glossy accents to their stems and emphasized the eyes of the deer with a black glaze pen.
I hope you like my card today and will return soon for more Fall inspiration.
See you soon,
