Fall Leaves Window Card | Newton’s Nook Designs

Happy Friday! This “short” week might have flown by, but man was it busy and stressful. Life in a pandemic, right! So glad that I have my hobby to keep me sane, and as a plus I get to work with some great companies that are super understanding of my needs and changes in schedules!

Enough about that, let’s get to the reason y’all are here! Sharing a fun window card today using a collection of old and new stamps from Newton’s Nook Designs.

To create this card, I started with a A2 top folding and die cut a circle (using the largest stitched circle from the circle frames die set) to create the window. Next I created the background or inside of the card, using the Fall Rounabout Stamp. I lined it up in my MISTI and stamped it using some brown dye ink.

Now to add details and a sentiment to the front of the card, I die cut the stitched pumpkins and leaf from the Fall Friends Die Set multiple times from green, orange and yellow cardstock. I added highlights to the die cuts using copic markers. For the sentiment I die cut the longest banner from the Banners Trio Die Set and stamped a sentiment from the Fall Rounabout Stamp on to the banner. I also trimmed off the pennant on one side of the banner as it was too long.

To finish off the card, I adhered the banner across the window, aded a few pumpkins to hide the trimmed side of the banner, and arranged the rest around the window, layering some of them.

I hope this card inspires you to create something for fall! Please make sure to stop by the Newton’s Nook Designs Blog for more inspiration and don’t forget to tag #NewtonsNook or #NewtonsNookDesign on Instagram to share what you created!

Happy crafting!

Salam and Sayings Theme Week (with DStamps) : Day 4

This post is days late because I decided not to pack my laptop, thinking that I can type it up and post it on my phone, but I failed. Really badly failed, so here I am on a Monday afternoon when I should be creating/posting for Eid! Can you believe Eid is less that a week away! I’m still unpacking from the wedding weekend. Man, Dallas was hot! Enough chit chat, card time! 

To make these cards, I started off by stamping this beautiful floral wreath image from Studio Katia, it’s a HUGE one! My final card was a 5 x 5 inch square. I’ll link the envelopes I use to mail/give this away below. I colored them using chameleon dual tone colored pencils, and diecut using the largest square die I could find in my stash. Then I used a circle die to cut out the center of the wreath. With my card fronts ready, it was now time to finish of the cards. I made 5 x 5 cardbases in black cardstock.

For the first card, I made a window card. Started with lining up card front with the base, and die cut a circle, and create the window. I added a white square to the inside of the card to stamp the sentiment (from DStamps), leaving room to add your message. As usual I added some gems to the front of the card for a finishing touch.

I made the second card a shaker, one of my favorite cards to make! Using some thin foam tape I created the ‘well’ for the sequins, after adding a piece of acetate to cover the window in the middle of the wreath. I added more foam tape around the ‘well’ and added it to the card base. I also added a few of the same sequins on the wreath, along with an embossed sentiment to finish off the card!
