Hello! Crystal here with a couple of cute Fall cards using the Sweater Weather stamp set by Newton’s Nook. Now this adorable set is geared a bit more towards a Christmas theme with the snowflakes and the mittens included in the set. I had a different idea for this set since the temperatures are starting to drop and it’s finally time to pull out some sweaters, I really wanted to make a Fall themed card using this set so let’s have a look at what I came up with…
I started by blending some Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain distress ink over the Newton’s Nook Tree Rings stencil on two pieces of kraft card stock measuring 4 x 5-1/4″. I adhered a strip of coordinating card stock on the left edge and then adhered a 1-1/2″ strip of Echo Park Celebrate Autumn patterned paper on both pieces of stenciled kraft card stock. I then mat these pieces with a dark brown card stock measuring 4-1/8 x 5-3/8″ and adhered them to kraft card bases. I stamped the sentiment on a piece of coordinating card stock using Versamark watermark ink and heat embossed a fine white embossing powder. I then die cut it with a banner die that I trimmed on one end. I adhered these banners to the card and set them aside.
Since I wanted a Fall theme for my card, I decided to use the coffee cup and pumpkins from the Newton’s Nook Fall-ing For You stamp set that was included in the September 2017 Flavor of the Month card kit. I stamped all the images in Memento tuxedo black ink and them colored them in with the following Copic markers:
Newton ~ YR0000, YR21, YR24, BG70, BG72, N0, N1, N2, R37, R56
Bear ~ E44, E47, E49, E70, E71, E74, R00, YR15, YR21, YR24, YR68, Y35, BG70, BG72
Pumpkins ~ E55, E57, YR15, YR27, YR68
Coffee Cups ~ R37, R56, BG70, BG72, YR21, YR24, YR68, N0
All that was left to do was fussy cutting the images out and adhering them to the cards using a liquid glue. I sure hope you enjoyed the cards I’m sharing with you today. I had so much fun making them!
