Nuts about You MMSC21


I just love sketches, especially when they come together as easily as this one. I used MMSC21 for my sketch inspiration. I've been a little busy lately, and haven't had time to play in their sketches, but I sure picked a good week to head over there, as they are giving away a WorkBox - I'll share more information with you below my card.

Since it's a bit on the chilly side again today, and my 18th Wedding Anniversary is next week, I thought I'd toss a few ideas around for DH's card. Not sure if this is the one he'll end up with yet or not.

I stamped the 3 Step Autumn Squirrel from Kitchen Sink Stamps on White card stock as follows: #3 Black, #2 Close to Cocoa, #1 Memento Desert Sand. Then using the leaves from the new Owl & Autumn Moon set, I stamped the larger leaves under the Squirrel as follows: #2 Close to Cocoa, #1 randomly using the colors in the Pumpkin Spectrum Pad and Memento Dandelion inks. I layered the stamped panel on a piece of Chocolate Chip done with the Torn Frames Technique, then layered on a Pumpkin Pie panel. The sentiment from the Autumn Squirrel set is stamped in Chocolate Chip. The large leaf is from the Autumn Squirrel set stamped on White as follows: #3 Close to Cocoa, #2 Pumpkin Patch, #1 Pumpkin Patch stamped off. After cutting, I sponged the edges to fill in any White space, then adhered to the panel with a dimensional. The Acorn is stamped as follows: #1 Old Olive, #2 Close to Cocoa, #3 Chocolate Chip, sponged and adhered to the leaf with a dimensional. I frayed some Hemp and added it with a Glue Dot. The beautiful printed paper panels are from the Indian Summer pad from Basic Grey - I'm just lovin' this paper for Fall!

I don't think there is much prettier than that Basic Grey Indian Summer paper, unless, of course, it is your beautifully stamped squirrel. I just adore the fall colors.
