Pumpkin Kisses & Autumn Wishes Card by September Guest Designer Stephanie Davis


This is our second post today, to see the reveal of the winner of our Newton's Nook Designs and WOW! inspiration week, scroll down or click here



Hello everyone! Today I’m sharing my last guest design project with Newton's Nook. I've had so much fun, thank you so much for having me!!
 

To create my card, first I cut out a the card panel frame using the Frames & Flags Die Set. Next I cut some Bristol Smooth Cardstock to fit inside the frame. I blended a sunset background and splattered it with black and gold gouache. Next I die cut some grass and layered it on the card panel. I stamped images from Autumn Mice, and Garden Mice stamp sets using Antique Linen Distress Ink. I used hot pressed watercolor paper. I wanted a soft look so I chose to color the images using the no line coloring technique. I colored them with Caran D'ache Supracolor Watercolor Pencils. I fussy cut the images out and began building my scene.


I wanted two of the mice to appear to be kissing each other in the sunset. Then I stamped the sentiment from the Fall Fringe Stamp Set with black ink. I adhered the card panel to the card base using foam squares to complete the card. I had so much fun coloring all of these adorable images!

If you've enjoyed my work this month you can continue to find me over on my blog, The Gypsy Chic or on Instagram!

2019 National Coffee Day Blog Hop


Today we are playing along with the 2019 National Coffee Day Blog hop!

I you like coffee you are going to LOVE this blog hop! There are so may fun stops on this hop featuring coffee themed cards you are sure to be inspired! There will be prizes too on most of the stops! Read all the way to the end of this post for details on the giveaway from us at Newton's Nook Designs and a link to all the stops. 

Now - onto the inspiration! I created two cards using our Pumpkin Latte Stamp Set and Pumpkin Patch Stencil to play along! 

2019 National Coffee Day Blog Hop | Fall coffee cards by Jennifer Jackson | Pumpkin Latte Stamp Set and Pumpkin Patch Stencil by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade
For the first card I created a fun Fall scene featuring the image girl with giant pumpkins and a coffee mug from and a little single pumpkin from our Pumpkin Latte Stamp Set. I colored the images using watercolor markers and cut them out with the coordinating Pumpkin Latte Die Set. Next a I cut the stitched square shape using our Frames Squared Die Set. I added some brown grass along the bottom of the square using our Hills & Grass Stencil to add to the Fall mood. The sentiment "happy pumpkin spice season" is also from the Pumpkin Latte Stamp Set
2019 National Coffee Day Blog Hop | Fall coffee cards by Jennifer Jackson | Pumpkin Latte Stamp Set and Pumpkin Patch Stencil by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade
For the background I created some fun fuzzy pumpkins using our Pumpkin Patch Stencil and orange flock sheets from Therm O Web. To attach the flocking you first use Decofoil Transfer Gel over the stencil. Once the gel is dry, you add the flock by layering it over the top of the stenciled pattern and sending it through a heat laminator. The flock sticks to where the transfer gel was placed.  

I thought the "leftover" piece of flock also looked super cool too with the reverse image so I used that to create a second card!

For the second card I used several of the same supplies. I used another image of a girl with coffee from our Pumpkin Latte Stamp Set. Again, I colored the images using watercolor markers and cut them out with the coordinating Pumpkin Latte Die Set. Just like the previous card,  I cut the stitched square shape using our Frames Squared Die Set. This time I created the scene a little differently. I added clouds using our Clouds Stencil across the sky and I added one layer of grass using our Land Borders Die Set. I added one little leaf floating on the breeze from our Pumpkin Latte Stamp Set
2019 National Coffee Day Blog Hop | Fall coffee cards by Jennifer Jackson | Pumpkin Latte Stamp Set and Pumpkin Patch Stencil by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade
As previously mentioned the background is the "reverse" or negative of what you get when you use a flock sheet from Therm O Web. This is a great way to get more milage out of your supplies! I also used our Frames & Flags Die Set to cut the scallop edged rectangle shape.  

I hope you enjoyed this card today! If you like coffee, make sure to check out all of our coffee themed sets in our Coffee & Tea category

'Tis the Season to be Fabulous Card by September Guest Designer Stephanie Davis


Hello everyone! I'm excited to be back to share another fall card with you! I just adore the Pumpkin Latte Stamp set, and I couldn't wait to make a card with it!

'Tis the Season to be Fabulous Card by September Guest Designer Stephanie Davis | Pumpkin Latte Stamp Set and Autumn Leaves Die Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade
To create my card, I first splattered black and gold gouache onto the card base. Then I die cut a frame out of patterned paper using the Frames & Flags Die Set. I popped the frame up using foam tape to adhere it to the card base. Then I stamped the Pumpkin Latte Stamp Set and embossed the images with gold embossing powder. I used some Sennelier watercolors to paint the images, and added a bit of detail with watercolor pencils.

Then I dug through my scrap box to find a few alcohol background scraps. I die cut leaves from the background scraps using the Autumn Leaves Die Set and adhered them to the frame. I think my favorite may be the little acorn, so cute!
'Tis the Season to be Fabulous Card by September Guest Designer Stephanie Davis | Pumpkin Latte Stamp Set and Autumn Leaves Die Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade
Did you know you can mix your alcohol inks to create the perfect brown?!? That way you don't have to buy ALL of the colors, especially colors you won't use often. I had mixed black and orange to make the brown alcohol background. I also added some gold, because everything is better with a bit of gold to me! I used foam squares to adhere the images on top of the leaves, and popped up the acorn as well. Then I added the sentiment stamped from the Christmas Haul Stamp Set, embossed in gold to complete my card.

Thanks so much for joining me! Have a great week!!

~Stephanie
