Newton's Nook Designs September Release - Falling Into Autumn

yahoo! day 2 of newton's nook's release for september is here! that's right! did you remember? there are an incredbile FOUR sets being released this on friday! so excited!!

all of the new sets will be available for purchase on September 19th, here!

today we're sharing the Falling Into Autumn! it's SO ADORABLE, and versitle and FALL!!

this set is SO fun!! it's perfect for creating scenes, clean and simple or one layer cards! i see a lot more heat embossing and distress inks, watercolors, ANYTHING! with this set in my future!

my first card is MY FAVORITE!!! 

i stamped (close to) the edges of the panel with all of the leave images in different colors of distress inks! overlapping, changing angles, etc. 

THEN! to make it even more incredible, i went over the edges with vintage photo and old paper distress inks to give it an edged look. I LOVE HOW IT TURNED OUT!
the sentiment was stamped in the 'white' area, to really highlight it! and then a few enamel dots finished off the card! 

i used spray mists for my 2nd card, and lots of white heat embossing!
first i heat embossed the leave images in a fun diagonal pattern! i really LOVE the layout of the leaves!

then i wet the entire panel with water and let drops of the sprays fall onto the card base and spread. i used red, yellow and orange. with just a HINT of green in some places! then when it was dry, i splatters some gold on top! 

i used those super sweet bird wood veneers to finish it off! definitely, fall-like, huh?
