Acorny "Give Thanks"

Hi Again Friends!!

I wanted to share another card that I created this weekend using the Splitcoaststampers’ SC567 Sketch along with the Colour Me..Subtle! #98 Challenge and the Paper Craft Crew #171 “Give Thanks” Theme Challenge.

 Again, if you have not already visited the above sites, I hope you will take a moment to do so- great inspiration from all!

To create this card:

Trim a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock on an angle for the sketch, mount onto a ppiece of Soft Suede cardstock and mount onto the Very Vanilla card base.

Stamp the acorns from Acorny Thanks using Soft Suede Classic Ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock and punch out the acorns using the Acorn Builder Punch.

Ink one of the acorn tops using Crushed Curry Classic Ink and stamp onto Very Vanilla cardstock.

Ink two acorn tops using Crushed Curry Classic Ink, roll into Cherry Cobbler Classic Ink and daub the ink with a Sponge Dauber to blend the edges.

Punch all of the acorn tops using the Acorn Builder Punch and adhere to the acorns.

Ink the oak leaves from Vintage Leaves using Cherry Cobbler Classic Ink and stamp onto Crushed Curry cardstock and use the Big Shot™ with the Leaves Framelits™ and cut out the leaves.

Use a Sponge Dauber with Soft Suede Classic Ink onto the leaves and acorns.

Add a glue dot to adhere the Gold Metallic Thread, mount the two leaves (looping the thread within the leaves) with Stampin’ Dimensionals®, mount the acorns with Stampin’ Dimensionals™ as well.

Ink the sentiment with Early Espresso Classic Ink, roll into Cherry Cobbler Classic Ink and stamp onto the card front.

Ink the large splatter stamp with Soft Suede Classic Ink and repeatedly stamp the splatter stamp over the card front to finish off the card.

Stamps: Acorny Thanks, Vintage Leaves, Gorgeous Grunge, Best of Autumn (retired)

Ink:  Cherry Cobbler, Crushed Curry, Soft Subtle

Paper: Very Vanilla, Soft Suede, Crushed Curry

Accessories: Big Shot™, Leaves Framelits™, Acorn Builder Punch, Gold Metallic Thread, Sponge Daubers

Thanks again for stopping by- have a great week, my friends!

This is beautiful and it might convince me to buy that acorn bundle. I've been resisting, but I love what you've done here.
