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!!
