wagon of wishes {newton's nook designs august release}

I'm excited to be joining the Newton's Nook team today, showing off their new set, "wagon of wishes."

wagon of wishes.

For my first card, I did what I love to do best: I created a scene by masking the cat-in-the-wagon image and stamping fall leaves all around.  The sentiment was curved to nestle right over the leaves.  For a bit of extra fall goodness, I die-cut some new lawn fawn leaves - I love them!

For my second card, I created a leafy background with the same leaf cluster as the top card, stamping it randomly onto white cardstock.  I blended distress inks on top to make it look more like patterned paper.

I hope you like the cards!  Would you like to win a "wagon of wishes" set?  2 lucky winners will be chosen!

Here's how to win:

  7. Oh my gosh you are a girl after my own heart. I love both of your cards and for different reasons. The 1st card is bright and cheery and made me wish for fall. The second card is so beautiful for the way you blended the colored background it is gorgeous and really does look like patterned paper. You are very talented thanks for sharing. P.S. I love masking when I stamp and it isn't talked about that much.
