It has been a while since I last played along the Lawnfawnatics Challenges and the same with Simon Says Stamp IG challenges. I felt it was high time for some crafty fun and as the theme is Fall on both, I used my brand new squirrels from Lawn Fawn’s latest release.
I stamped the little cuties from Let’s go nuts, the branch from a retired set called Home sweet home. I used a brown hybrid ink from Scrapbook.com, which is Copic marker friendly. Then I used different brown shades to colour them and cut them all out with their coordinating dies.
Then I die cut the different pieces of the Acorn house from kraft and brown cardstock, and some accessories from the new metallic gold cardstock.
The smaller leave from the set I cut from coloured cardstock scraps several times. For the grass I used a grassy border die.
For the background of my scene I chose a cloudy patterned paper from the new Into the woods remix paper pad. I assembled the scene using liquid glue and 3D foam squares to add dimension. The sentiments I white heat embossed on thin brown cardstock strips. I used the same cardstock to add a thin mat around my scene.
I finished it off with a black glaze pen on the eyes and noses and made the acorn hats shiny with glossy accents. Such a cheerful scene, don’t you think? Will be a perfect gift for my daughter’s friend, who is turning 10 soon.
I hope you enjoyed my card design and will pop in again soon for more fun!
