Today is my day to share a project on the Newton’s Nook Designs Blog. I’m fully into all things fall at this point and, apparently, obsessed with leaves. Shades of Autumn was a natural for me to grab for today’s project.
I wanted to go with a monochromatic look but with something a little less expected. So I pulled out my Fog Gray paper from Simon Says Stamp and used the Falling Leaves Stencil with the new Embossing Paste from Stampin’ Up. I love the look of the leaves on the soft gray! The leaf from the stamp set was stamped in Smoky Slate (SU) and the veining of the leaf image shows up so beautifully!! I added a sentiment from the set. A great go-to sentiment!! Many time when I use grays, I’m drawn to use the Sparkling Clear Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and they work perfectly here.
I hope you like my card for today. With all that is happening in the world, make sure you take time to give thanks for the many people who mean so much to you. Glad you stopped in to see me. Hope to see you again soon!
