Stamping Fun for Autumn Jubilee

Autumn is my favorite time of year, and I like to send cards to celebrate the season.  I have sent Thanksgiving cards for years and they are always eagerly anticipated by my family who live out of state.  So let’s stamp some cards today for #AutumnJubilee2020!

Ever since I discovered Impression Obsession, I have loved the sentiments and motifs they offer.  I like that you have the option of how your stamps are mounted, so I can save money using my acrylic blocks, plus they take up less space than the wood mounts.  Wood mounts are still available for those who prefer those.  I’ve made a selection of Autumn theme cards using their stamps and inks, any of them would be appropriate for Thanksgiving with the right sentiment inside.  Instead of showing step by step today, I’ll just tell you about the designs.  First up, a gold card base is topped with a pretty leaf print paper wrapped with three loops of jute cording.  A leaf is inserted under the cording, and the framed sentiment is glued on top.  A small leaf sticker embellishes the bottom right corner.  The Autumn Is a Second Spring sentiment is available at Impression Obsession (affiliate links).

I love this sentiment from the Pumpkin Kisses set. For this card, I cut a strip of decorative scrapbook edging and mounted it on dark brown card stock.  Then a sticker is added, and the sentiment stamped on the right.

For this card, I used the Pumpkin Pair stamp in brown ink and colored it with pencils and mounted it on an orange card stock frame.  A ribbon was glued across the bottom of the rust color base, and a decorative paper with the words Pumpkin Patch was glued across the top.   A glittery pumpkin dimensional embellishment is added to finish.

Inside another sentiment from the  Pumpkin Kisses set along with a few pumpkins stamped in orange at the bottom and on the envelope.

For this card, a wreath element is glued to ecru card stock, then offset mounted with a dark brown textured rectangle on top of a polka dot paper strip.  The  Sweet Autumn sentiment was stamped in brown ink on the bottom, and a little bushel of corn is added.  I just realized, that last element is upside down, LOL!!!  I’ll go back and change that before I send it out.

Another card using the  Pumpkin Kisses set for the sentiment and the row of pumpkins.  Polka dot paper is wrapped with three loops of dark brown string, then mounted with an offset gold paper in the upper left.  A pumpkin sticker and leaf stickers are added to finish.  The envelope got a pumpkin stamp in orange.

I found this fun paper in my stash for Halloween with a glittery bat and spider web.  I added some purple ribbon, and a Jack-O-Lantern stamp from that same set.

In a couple of hours of playing with paper and ink, I have six cards ready to go.

Wishing you Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice!!

    I think you capture the warm, earthy, homey feeling that autumn brings each year. These are needed especially this year when so many families can not get together because of covid.

    I enjoy seeing the lovely cards you make. I remember the kind sentiments expressed during the Safelight project and thought of hope brought to those experiencing difficult times. I make my own thank you cards but they sure don’t measure up to your quality.

  3. Your cards are just darling! The sentiments are just lovely and I love that polka dot paper! The last few years I have sent Thanksgiving cards, especially to those who we so appreciate during the year: our travel agent, my doctor and mail carrier. And also family and a few friends. IO has some lovely sentiment dies for other occasions and I have had very prompt service from them.

      I’ve never tried stamping or making my own cards before but these card are so lovely, I didn’t know that homemade cards could be so pretty. I’m off to check out Impression Obsession.

    I used to sell Creative Memories and still have a lot of my supplies so now I have a way to use them.

    This is heresy, I know, but since I’ve discovered stamping & card making, quilting has taken a back seat as I experiment with all the tools & techniques the hobby has to offer! Then you mentioned Impression Obsession. . . such a great selection & reasonable prices, delivery speed. . . My craft room is filling up! Thanks for so much inspiration!

    I have never used the plastic impressions. Is there something you attach them to when you actually ink and stamp? I have seen lots of nice ones but was never sure how to use them. I will have to look into it more.

    I wait for this all year. Love all the creativity you have Carole. I have little piles of projects all over my sewing room. Thank you sew much.

  8. kathyinozarks

    Yes I do like to make cards for the holidays especially at christmas time. Carole, your cards are lovely

    I don’t do scrapbooks, but I’m just getting into making cards. I love your pumpkin cards and have to know if that green paper came that way, or if you added the spider web and embellishments! It is SO cute!!

  10. I loved seeing your cards. I make cards for friends and for charities as well. It is always fun to see the layouts that others use. I may not have the same stamps or papers, but the ideas are easily adapted to what I have on hand. Impression Obsession stamps are great so thanks for hosting this autumn giveaway.

    I admire all of your creative designs. I stamped for awhile about 20 years ago and foolishly sold my stamps at a garage sale. You make me want to create some cards!

  12. Do you ever just breath!!!!!! Thanks for the great tutorials. Did stamping many years ago, went by the wayside, but revived it because of the kids, 5 and 7 who LOVE to stamp. You make it all look so easy! Thanks for the designs.

    I love the creative cards. You do such a nice job and they look so fun. I don’t do cards much, I’d rather be using fabric in big pieces. My daughter scrapbooks as do several of my DIL’Sand they are so creative but they didn’t get the gene from me. Thanks.

    Your cards are smashing this year. The sentiments are really nice. Will have to go check out Impression Obsession. Thank you telling us and showing us their great items.

  15. I get so inspired with your cards and all the wonderful layers. What a wonderful set you have created! I still enjoy the lovely card you sent me. My paper and stamps are calling. I need to restock on tape runners! 🙂 All your little embellishments make me want to run to the nearest Hobby Lobby or Michaels to stock up.

  16. Susan Nixon

    That’s a great way to spend two hours. =) The cards look wonderful. I especially like the spider web.

  17. Donna Weeks

    I don’t have any stamping supplies, however, I was inspired to create a fabric postcard for a dear friend. Thank you for the inspiration.

  18. Debbie Miller Meyer
