Newton's Nook Designs August Release Beautiful Leaves

Fall Leaf Card by Jess Gerstner for Newton's Nook Designs Beautiful Leaves

Hello crafty friends! I'm so excited to share Newton's Nook Designs August Release with you. This is a stop on the new release blog hop so be sure to read to the end so you'll know how to enter to win! Today I will be sharing Beautiful Leaves. I'm such a fan of the Beautiful Blossoms, Beautiful Blizzard and Beautiful Wings series so I'm excited to this new addition. For today's cards I'm sharing a fun way to use washi tape. I used a similar technique with a patterned tape recently but wanted to share how to use solid tape as I know it's more likely that you would have that in your stash. Check out my video tutorial below for more.


I also used the negative and positive to show some versatility utilizing the coordinating dies.
