Newton's Nook Designs' August Release ~ Day 2 ~ Beautiful Leaves


Hello Everyone!  Sorry I missed the first day of the release; I am dealing with some pressing medical issues at the moment and I appreciate Jen's patience and understanding as I am doing my best to deal with them (isn't she the BEST?!!) But I am happy to be joining everyone for Day 2, when Jen is sharing a new fall leaves set in her unique and beautiful faux quilling style -- introducing 'Beautiful Leaves':


And Jen created purr-fectly coordinating dies for it too!


I personally am NOT a warm weather person - autumn is my favorite season, so bring on the cooler temps!  Since Fall can't get here fast enough for me, I decided to use this set to make a napkin ring for a Thanksgiving table setting:

Thanksgiving Napkin Ring by Crafty Math Chick | Beautiful Leaves stamp set & dies set by Newton's Nook Designs

I had fun with a lot of tone-on-tone stamping with the leaves and used some of the leaves to decorate the sentiment band as well.  I think the burlap cord is a nice rustic touch too, don't you?

Would you like to win a 'Beautiful Leaves' stamp set?
This set will be given away to ONE lucky winner!

Here's how to win:

What a fun idea for Thanksgiving around here. It's always a HUGE gathering in our home and these tags would be such a great addition. I even love that you've added some nontraditional colors to the fall design! Great job!
