With the striped backdrop cut withe scallop-edged die from the Frame & Flags die set, Diane Morales creates a serene scene with her yellow truck from the Farming Fun stamp and die set taking center stage on a circle frame using the Circle Frames die set. She fills the bed of the truck with a giant pumpkin from the Harvest Tails stamp and die set. She uses the Land Borders die set to create a small green hill. She adds extra pumpkins and leaves fluttering around her card using the smaller elements from the Paw-tumn Newton stamp and coordinating die set. She stamps the "Welcome Autumn" sentiment from the Fall Roundabout stamp set on the rounded banner die in the Banner Trio die set. A fun way to bring in the new season!

Fall blessings by Sue T. features Circle Frames and Fall Roundabout by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Sue T. creates a circle card on Kraft card stock using the Circle Frames die set. She stamps the fall circular image from the Fall Roundabout stamp set on four different colored papers. She cuts them in strips and reassembles them in a circle which makes for a fabulous backdrop.  She cuts a dark brown strip with scallop-edges and heat embosses the "Fall Blessings" sentiment. She uses dimensional tape to create dimension for a fabulous fall card!

Every year by Becky features Fancy Edges Tag, Fall-ing for You, and Falling Leaves by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Becky Noelle is back with her spectacular use of stencils!  For this card, she uses the Falling Leaves stencil on a wood veneer paper.  After she uses many colored distress inks for her leaves, she hand draws the veins on each leaf!  Gorgeous!  She then uses the Fancy Edges Tag die set to create a vellum tag with the poem from the Fall-ing for You stamp set embossed in white. She adds stitching to the bottom of her tag and jute for her bow at the top.  Don't you just love the mix of textures and rich colors?!

Take delight in the small things by Crystal features Hummingbird and Slimline Frames & Windows by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Crystal Komara uses gold foil paper die cute from the Slimline Frames & Windows die set to create her trio of windows. In the background, she uses goldenrod yellow gingham for a country feel. She uses Copic markers to color the sweet bird from the Hummingbird stamp and die set and stamps multiple stems of flowers and arranges them up her vertical card. A beautiful autumn card with a touch of golden elegance!

Happy Paw-tumn features Houndstooth, Paw-tumn Newton, and Framework by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
 Debbie Owens begins her card with a steel-gray base.  Using the Houndstooth Stencil, she distresses uses a light brown which coordinates with the center of her flowers. She die cuts this layer using the postage-edge die out of the Framework die set. She adds her autumn image from the Paw-tumn Newton stamp set. She adds olive green ribbon and stamps the sentiment on a die-cut banner from the Banner Trio die set.  A sweet country fall card!
