Pumpkin Latte Tag Card by October Guest Designer Noga Shefer



Hi crafty friends, I am so happy to guest designing again today for the amazing Newtons Nook Designs.

Pumpkin Latte Tag Card by October Guest Designer Noga Shefer | Pumpkin Latte Stamp Set and Fancy Edges Tag Die Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

My card featuring Pumpkin Latte stamp set , Pumpkin Latte Die Set and Fancy Edges Tag Die Set.

I adore this stamp set!

To make this card I took an A2 panel of Bristol smooth cardstock and cut it with this tag die.
One of my favorite things on earth is making tags.

The background was created by blending dried marigold distress oxide ink and ripe persimmon distress oxide ink.

I also splashed white acrylic paint on it.

Next I colored the pretty images using copic markers and glues them to my panel with foam tape for dimension.

Next I stamped a greeting from this set using black ink on a small tag die.

To finish off, I added decorative tabs from Fancy Edges Tag Die Set and added an orange bakers twine.

I hope you enjoy the project I created and feel inspired to create!

Have a wonderful day!

NND Sponsors Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #481 | Fall Card by Jennifer Jackson using Harvest Tails Stamp Set and Falling Leaves Stencil by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade
I love making Fall cards so I was excited to see this challenge theme was FALL! I grabbed the deer pulling the wagon of pumpkins from our Harvest Tails Stamp Set and colored the image using Zig Watercolor markers. I thought it was fun to make the wagon teal but otherwise stuck to fall colors. I cut the image out using our coordinating Harvest Tails Die Set

For the background I used our Falling Leaves Stencil and created an ombr√© leaf background using yellow to orange inks. I cut it out to fit just inside the stitched edge of the large scalloped panel from our Frames & Flags Die Set. If anyone is curious the size of the rectangle that fits inside it like this is about 4 3/4" by 3 1/2." I also added a green hill using our Land Borders Die Set and stamped the "Happy Fall" sentiment, also from the Harvest Tails Stamp Set in the corner.
