Newton’s Nook Autumn Owls

Hi friends! Happy Tuesday! Please join me in a warm welcome back to special guest designer Kim Rendino! She made this absolutely adorable Autumn themed card with these cute little owls from Newton’s Nook Designs! Be sure to read on for more details and enjoy!


Owls and Autumn…..what could be better? Hello, it’s Kimberly here to share a transparent window shaker card using the Fuse tool and the cute little owl couple from Newton’s Nook Designs’ What a Hoot stamp set. They go perfectly with this sweet fall sentiment!

I used a storage pocket and the Fuse tool to create sections for my sentiment, the owl couple, and shaker material. The tiny leaves from the coordinating die set are the perfect addition to the shaker areas!

Next I stamped, colored and die cut my owls, the branch and several leaves. I stamped the leaves on both sides, and colored the owls in on the back side as well so that they are just as cute on the INSIDE of the card as they are on the outside! I even stamped the sentiment again, on the reverse side so that it can be read from the inside as well. Once everything was ready, I added the die cut pieces and some sequins to my fused storage pocket and sealed it all up!

To complete the card, I die cut a rectangle into my card base, and then nested the dies and cut a frame from patterned paper. I adhered the fused piece to the outside of the card using Scor-Tape and then adhered the patterned frame over top. I added another die cut frame to the inside of the card as well to give it a nice finished look! I blended just a touch of Distress Ink onto the lower portion of the inside of my card to hint at the Autumn sky.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my card and that it has inspired you to try making a see through shaker! Using dies to create shaker material is a fun way to get more use out of tiny die cut shapes!
