Newton's Nook: Falling Into Autumn

 Happy Tuesday!  Welcome to Day #2 of the
Newton's Nook September Releases!
Newton has been at it again and you're sure to
love he and his friends in all of their adorableness :)

Today we're featuring "Falling Into Autumn"

My sample card made with this sweet stamp set:
I used three different colors of Memento Luxe Inks and applied each in a section
of the leaf stamp.  Next I used a sponge to blend the colors together.  I hand-cut 
around the leaves and then swirled them in a circle at the center of the doily die-cut.
The card and patterned paper is by Authentique and the jute string is from May Arts Ribbon.

 In times past I have covered the top of the tin (when I actually had a pattern), but I  went with tons of colorful ribbons and stamped tags on the handle instead.
 After measuring the height of the body, I cut two strips of "Joyful" paper into 5x12".
Next, I cut two strips of "Glistening" paper int…
