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!

Welcome to day 1 of the September release from Newton’s Nook Designs. Fall is definitely in the air and Newton’s Nook is ready! We are starting off with a beautiful set called Shades of Autumn and a brand new stencil, Falling Leaves. Both are fabulous!
The detail on these images is really special and I wanted to make sure I showed the stamp detail as much as possible. I thought that using the Distress Oxide Ink would do just that. The ink is a bit thicker than some of the dye inks and grabs onto the stamp differently. And then you have the added benefit of how it moves with water. So I stamped the leaves and then spritzed with some water to get the ink run just a little. Then I added some additional splatters with the ink and water mixed together. The sentiment from the the set is such a nice size and fit perfectly with the leaves. I cut out the panel with Cross-Stitched Rectangles Dies and the mounted on a base of Audrey Blue card stock cut with the same. There are more fun leaves in this set and I can’t wait to play some more with them. Of course, there are coordinating dies that makes your layering super easy. And this stencil is GORGEOUS…perfect for all of your fall projects! And now for the part you always love!!
