Autumn Jubilee Stamping Fun

One of the things I really enjoy is making and sending cards for the Autumn season, and particularly Thanksgiving.  Friends and family love getting them.  With a love of pumpkins and all things Autumn, this is a great time to stamp and play with paper.  I have a couple of stamp sets that are perfect for Autumn cards, plus adding some stickers is a fun way to dress up and add marvelous detail to designs.

For this simple card, I stamped the sentiment in the lower right from the set So Very Thankful, added a ribbon above and a cute scarecrow dimensional sticker to the top right.  A pumpkin sticker completes the card.

For the next card, I used a pumpkin from the same stamp set So Very Thankful.  This card will feature a pretty paper too.

I stamped the pumpkin on one bit of cardstock, and a sentiment on another, and mounted both of them on dark brown for a frame.  On the patterned paper, I wrapped twine around one edge three times and tied a bow.

The patterned paper is glued to the harvest gold cardstock, then the two stamped and framed elements are added.

Two cards suitable for the season are done.  I’m not done stamping cards for Thanksgiving, so more will be coming next month.

I also wanted to decorate this brown paper bag for a gift.  The clear stamp set I used is this one, Leaf Set, which has a layered leaf.

Here is how you use this set.  The base of the leaf is stamped first in the lightest color you will use.  This will be the stamp with the largest ink surface area, the one in the upper left of the set.

Then stamp over the first one, with the second stamp (on the top right) in a slightly darker tone.  You’ll know which one is next by the amount it covers.  Each one is progressively less ink surface to show detail.

With each stamp use a darker ink so the details begin to emerge.

Clear stamps and clear blocks make it easy to align the next stamp.

When you are done with the five stamps in progressively darker browns, this is the result – a pretty leaf with veining detail.

Stamp Happy Fall on the bag in a couple of spots.

Add stickers to complete the design.  I liked the tree with the rake, and the curved “Autumn” banner sticker.

  1. Such cute cards. A handmade card is such a personal and thoughtful gift to send to family and friends, especially this time when we remember to be grateful for them. I’m making some Thanksgiving cards for my family and a few cards for special people who have helped me this year.

    LOVE your cards!! I make my cards too (& envelopes from magazine pages, & junk mail stuff too.. lol) Working on Thanksgiving cards now, even a few Christmas ones too.

    We don’t do halloween cards with all the fall birthdays in the family, we have plenty of card giving for those events. That said, we plan to entertain guests at care centers with piano and violin music and sing alongs. Card making for Christmas along with gift donations to give to residents would be a great use of stamps.

    Your cards are so beautiful but I personally have never stamped and made cards. I may have to start a new hobby if I can figure out where to store the supplies!

    Ohboy do I love Impression Obsession! Fast service, good value in that you can just order 1 or 2 items, not a bundle of stuff you won’t likely use. “Discovered” them here, on your blog, Carole!

    What beautiful stamps and cards! ! I hadn’t planned on stamping for Halloween or Thanksgiving – I usually just stamp for birthday cards. But now I’m inspired by your autumn themes! Maybe some of my friends will get cards this fall. Thanks for the chance to win a gift certificate!

  8. Stickers are a lot of fun and great additions to your cards. I use them more when I scrapbook, but thanks for the reminder to use them more often on cards. TFS!
