Remember those cute little acorns?  I pulled them off the shelf and dusted them off for today’s card for the Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge….


This was a fun sketch.

  • The card base is Cajun Craze cardstock with a mat of Very Vanilla cut 1/8″ smaller.
  • The Very Vanilla sentiment panel measures 3 3/4″ x 2 1/2″.  The DSP panel is from the Petals & Paisleys Designer Series Paper Pack (#142017) and is cut 3 7/8″ x 2 3/4″.
  • The sentiment from the Tin of Cards stamp set (#138946) is stamped in Dapper Denim ink.  The top and bottom border is a stamp from the Designer Tin of Cards stamp set (#141739).  
  • A small In-Color Enamel Shape (#141410) accentuates each border.
  • The trio of acorns, punched with the Acorn Builder Punch (#139681), are cut out in Crumb Cake cardstock.  I sponged the edges with Soft Suede ink for a little more definition.
  • The acorn caps are cut from a pattern in the Moroccan Designer Series Paper Pack (#141645).

  • The inside is embellished with a bit of DSP.  This is a nice touch especially on a blank notecard.

  • The envelope flap, embellished with more DSP completes the card.

It was a lot of fun to create this card and to use the Acorny Hello Stamp Set again.  It’s a great set and can be used in many ways, especially for Fall cards.  It’s easy to forget about “last year’s models” with all the terrific new products in the Holiday Catalog but I was happy to give this set some “ink” time again!

Speaking of the new Holiday Catalog…



If you haven’t already seen it and all the great new products and do not currently have a Demonstrator, I would be happy to send you one.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have a wonderful Labor Day.
