Watercolor Autumn Leaves Card (ft. Newton’s Nook Designs)

Sending Prayers #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Autumn Leaves Die set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Hello and welcome!

I’m so happy you’ve joined me today and even more excited to be on the Newton’s Nook Designs blog sharing a simple autumn feeling card!

Today’s card was really easy to make. To start, I took a piece of a cold pressed watercolor paper since it has more texture compared to a hot pressed version and paint a sort of splotchy and uneven background, creating a green, a red and yellowish areas. I flicked some colorful droplets on top along with white and gold ones to bring more interest to the pattern. I let the paper air dry and then die cut some leaves using Autumn Leaves Die Set.

An extended A2 size (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″) card base was made from a kraft cardstock. I trimmed and positioned on top another slightly smaller panel made from the watercolor paper where I wrapped and tied a bow using a matching kraft twine. I arranged my watercolor leaves and glued them directly on the background. Finally I added a heat embossed sentiment from Heartfelt Essentials stamp set. If you have troubles with heat embossing, I highly recommend you to prep the paper with a generous coat of Powder Tool to prevent the embossing powder from sticking to your paper where you don’t want it. Then use VersaMark Clear Sticky ink since this ink stays wet for a while and allows to achieve a perfect impression. A few sequins finished this simple watercolor card.

Today’s Introductions include… beautiful big Autumn Background stamp; amazing Autumn Blessings sentiment stamp set and wonderful stand alone Thanks Word With Shadow SugarCut.

And here’s what I came up with for you today! Quite simple project featuring heat embossing technique and some simple ink blending! To start, I inked a piece of Bristol paper with Twisted Citron, Peeled Paint and Moved Lawn Distress inks and the blending brushes, trying to get an ombré effect. I heat set well the ink and then heat embossed  on top Autumn Background stamp using a fine white embossing powder. I die cut the achieved pattern with new just released yesterday Card Front Elements 3 SugarCut and then popped the squares on an extended A2 size white card base (5 1/2″ X 4 1/4″) made from Neenah Solar White paper.

Next I stamped two tiny pumpkins from Autumn Blessings set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and heat embossed “Give Thanks” sentiment on a piece of a black cardstock. I fussy cut all the elements with my sharp small scissors, leaving a little edge around. The pumpkins were colored with copic markers and then popped on a foam tape along with the heat embossed sentiment. A few matching sequins added a finish touch to this card.

And here’s all the exact colors used by me on this project: COPIC MARKERS YR09-YR16-Y17-Y15; YG09-YG17-YG03-YG01.

Today’s Introductions include… the most adorable Hey Fall stamp set that comes with the coordinating Hey Fall SugarCut. An amazing stand alone Hey Fall SugarCut is such a cute and clever product to “ground” cute critters and complete the forest scenes on your projects. Finally new Card Front Elements 3 SugarCut is meant to add extra touches with beautiful faux stitched details to all the layouts.

My card turned out as a clean and simple project with some simple copic coloring! To start, I die cut the bear, squirrel and pumpkin shapes using the coordinating Hey Fall SugarCut and Neenah Solar White paper. Next I took the MISTI tool and stamped the open images from Hey Fall stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, helping myself with the negative parts of the die for a perfect alignment. I colored all the elements with copic markers and set them aside while I was working on the background.

As always, here’re all the colors used by me on this card: COPIC MARKERS E0000-E000-E30-E31-E33; YR000-YR00-YR04-YR07; YR30-Y21; Y15-Y17; YG00-YG01-YG05-YG09; R22.

The background was framed with a faux stitched details using wonderful new Card Front Elements 3 SugarCut. I ran the piece of paper once again inside my Big Shot die cutting machine to add the fabulous Birch Forest scene towards the center. I also prepared an extended A2 size white card base (5 1/2″ X 4 1/4″) from the same Neenah Solar White paper that I used before where I inked an ombré sky using Broken China Distress ink and the the blending brush directly on the card front. Finally I started assembling all the elements together by adhering the die cut panel directly to the card base and then popping the colored stamps on the foam tape. The heat embossed sentiment from the same Hey Fall stamp set and a few clear sparkling sequins finished this sweet card.

For the background I prepared a faux stitched circle using Circle Frames Die Set and inked it with Tumbled Glass Distress ink and the blending brush. I also added new just released Houndstooth stencil creating a tone on tone pattern applying the same Tumbled Glass Distress ink with more heavy hand. I stamped the encouraging sentiment from another new Heartfelt Wishes stamp set and started assembling all the elements together on an extended A2 size card base (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″).

Working on my second project, I started in the same exact way with the same exact products I mentioned above.
