Fall Leaves & Pumpkins Please!

Today Ellen has created an adorable card that is sure to put you in the mood for fall weather!

For her card she features our Signs of Fall Stamp Set. This fun set has an image with a blank sign and several sentiments that fit inside it so you can easily customize your fall greetings! For her card today, Ellen stamped and colored the image in fun bright fall colors with pops of blue and teal. Then she added the "Fall Leaves & Pumpkins Please!" sentiment, embossing it in white onto the sign. She cut the images out using the coordinating Signs of Fall Die Set.

For her card base she used our Hardwood Stencil to create a woodgrain background. Then she layered it over a fun lime green scallop edged panel that was cut out using our Frames & Flags Die Set. What a fun pop of color!

This awesome card features the girl curled up in her arm chair with three of our favorite things: a kitty, a book, and a coffee! This image is from our Sips & Stories Stamp Set.

For her card she combined a few different elements to create a fun layout. She started by stenciling a panel of green paper with green ink using our Mugs Stencil. Then she cut the panel out using our Framework Die Set to give it that fun postage edge. 

Next, she cut out a bright golden yellow tag using our Fancy Edges Tag Die Set. She used the mini edge dies from the same set to add a brown tag topper with a zig zag edge. She also used our Houndstooth Stencil to to add a bit of pattern to the tag. 

She assembled all the pieces and added the sentiment, embossed in white onto a black banner that was cut out using our Frames & Flags Die Set. A few mini white hearts add a fun finishing touch too. 

Here is a close up so you can see all the gorgeous details.

Harvest Blessings Card by September Guest Designer Priscilla Joseph

Newton's Nook Designs September 2021 Guest Designer Priscilla Joseph
Hello Crafty Friends!


I am delighted to be back for my 3rd blog post as the September Guest Designer for Newton's Nook Designs.

Unlike last week’s card, which featured only black, gray, and white, today’s mini slimline card is bursting with the vibrant and contrasting fall colors of rust and navy. I love this bold combination! My card features the Autumn Newton Stamp Set (coordinating dies are available). This adorable 4 x 6 stamp set showcases Newton participating in lots of fun fall activities. Plus, I used the Falling Leaves Stencil to create a three-dimensional background on the card. And just for fun, I created a mini slimline envelope to match! 

Harvest Blessings Card by September Guest Designer Priscilla Joseph | Autumn Newton Stamp Set and Falling Leaves Stencil by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Card Details:
  • I created a mini slimline card base (6” x 7”, scored at 3.5”) out of dark rust card stock.
  • To create the background scene, I used white embossing paste tinted with the “Rusty Hinge” Distress Oxide re-inker and then spread it through the Falling Leaves stencil over navy card stock.
  • The image was colored with Copic markers and die cut out.
  • For added dimension, I paper pieced a navy bow over the stamped bow.
  • I stamped the sentiment “harvest blessing” onto light rust card stock and adhered it and a circle frame onto the embossed leaf background.

  • Finally, the colored image was foam mounted on top of the circle and the card was finished by framing it in the same light rust colored card stock before adhering it to the slimline card base.
  • For a finishing touch, I created a matching mini slimline envelope and used the Falling Leaves stencil and “Rusty Hinge” Distress Oxide ink to add leaves to the front.


I hope you enjoyed today’s vibrant autumn card. Stay tuned for my 4th and final card next week. Here’s a hint – should candy corn be included in “Food Pyramid”?
