Woodgrain Acorns

I really need to start creating with all the fantastic Christmas products I have but wanted to squeeze a last Fall card in today. It’s finally feeling like Autumn here in SE Pennsylvania. The leaves are changing, albeit a little late, and the acorns are falling.

I combined a few different stamp sets to create this card.  I’m always happy when I can do this as it justifies my many purchases…how’s that for rationalization!

Here’s the details

  • Using the Hardwood stamp set, I stamped the center panel in Soft Suede ink.
  • The cluster of acorns, from Count My Blessings stamp set, were stamped three times and colored using Stampin’ Write Markers.
  • I hand cut two of the images and layered them on the Hardwood panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • With the third image, I just cut two of the acorns and layered them to create a pretty 3D effect.
  • A Linen Thread bow “ties” it all together.
  • Crushed Curry Mini Chevron Ribbon and Burlap Ribbon are layered and wrapped around the panel before being adhered to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • The sentiment is from the Eastern Beauty Stamp set and is stamped in Soft Suede ink. It’s cut and mounted using the Layering Circles and Stitched Shapes framelits.

  • The inside sentiment is also from the Count My Blessings stamp set.
  • A pattern from the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper collection adds a little interest to the inside of the card.

Thanks for stopping by today and I wish you a Happy Halloween.  This little guy has had enough Trick or Treating already!
