Newton's Nook Designs August Release - wagon of wishes

what a great day today! 
newton's nook is releasing their next round of stamps - and they're awesome!!



today's focus is all about wagon of wishes - a perfectly adorable fall stamp set!
and i just had to make 2 projects for this stamp set too!!

for my first card, i channeled my inner duck dynasty for the sentiment (does anyone else watch that show? i LOVE it! lol!)


i used my distress markers to color in the images. then i fussy cut them out and popped them up for dimension.



i also added some sequins to jazz up the sentiment. this card definitely makes me happy happy happy! :)

my next card was really fun to make! lots and lots of paper piecing and layering! :)



i het embossed the sentiment and chose some warm, fall colors for the leaves and some cool, cozy colors for the backgrounds! (a perfect fall day if you ask me!)



i combined two of the images from the stamp set and hid little newton in some of the leaves! then i added some of the leaves to look like they were falling down. lots of cutting and glueing, but lots of fun too!

  3. Both of your cards are adorable and looking at them makes me feel happy too. Whenever you can invoke some kind of feeling from the people who see your creativity you've done a wonderful job. Duck Dynasty quacks me up too. The men are very odd! Thank you for sharing your beautiful work. Oh by the way what company is the background colored strips from?
