Truly Grateful Card | Shades of Autumn Stamp Set

First up I'm sharing a card I created using the Shades of Autumn Stamp Set. This set is so unique in that the stamps have a textured look to them that makes them a blast to stamp with. I used the stamps to create a custom background that has the look of falling leaves. This is always one of my favorite ways to create a card.

I then stamped the sentiment with Versamark Embossing Ink and heat set it with gold embossing powder. The final touch was a bit of green twine for a touch of color and texture.

Be Thankful Card | Falling Leaves Stencil

Next up, I'm sharing a card I created using the new Falling Leaves Stencil. If you didn't know, Newton's Nook has added stencils to their product offering and this is one of their latest designs.

I used the stencil to create the background for my card. After taping the stencil in place on my craft mat, I inked it up with a mix of Distress Oxide Inks in Fired Brick, Peeled Paint, Spiced Marmalade and Fossilized Amber. I then sprinkled a little water on and dabbed it dry to give it a bit more interest.

To embellish the card, I created a tag. First I stamped and colored the cute Newton from the Autumn Newton Stamp Set using my Chameleon Pens. I then took a die cut tag and inked the edges with some Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain Distress Ink. Finally, I added the sentiment, adhered Newton with some double sided foam tape and attached a bow.
