I’m still savoring the last few weeks of summer that are left, but there’s something about the crisp autumn air. So, why not get started on some fall crafting?! My post today feature’s Papertrey Ink’s August Release product collections: Kind of Corny and Autumn Scarecrow, two amazingly designed stamp and die sets.
When my eyes first met Kind of Corny, my jaw dropped. Indian corn is such a beautiful symbol I relate to the fall season. The set is so cool. There are a lot of different options and the fonts are very stylish. I can’t wait to create more with this set.
I started by die cutting and stamping the corn cluster. This is a multi-step stamp set, so you can create so many variations of Indian corn. And dare I mention that bow?
Anyway, my next step was to figure out where to put my beautiful corn. So, I pulled out my Mix + Mat: Herringbone dies and paired it with the Mix + Mat: Pinked Edge die. I die cut the outer frame from the herringbone collection and use the interior dotted border from the pinked edge collection.
Then, I stamped my sentiment from Year of Psalms: August using Canyon Clay ink.
Next, I cut a couple of pieces of the new Bitty Big: Canyon Clay patterned papers (big dots + bitty stripes) and created my 4×6 card front.
I added some twill tape ribbon treatment, then adhered my corn focal points.
I have a new interactive shopping feature. Click the dots over the areas on the card for the product you want to shop for in a store! The links may have affiliate marketing tracking codes.

This new scarecrow is the cutest! Autumn Scarecrow is an outline stamp set, which means get all your coloring tools out and have fun. Not only can you color the scarecrow, but also pumpkins, leaves, and more.
To start this card, I stamped the scarecrow and used my Copic markers to color.
Next, I die cut the Brushed Off: Oval from Kraft cardstock. Then, I stamped the leaves using Classic Kraft ink onto the Kraft cardstock.
I stamped the sentiment using Cocoa Bean ink and added a strip of Prairie Grass cardstock that I hand cut into two pennant banners.
