Happy Monday! It’s time for our Create with Connie and Mary Inspiration Monday challenge! This week we have an adorable fall squirrel print for our inspiration piece. Of course, I HAD to use the equally adorable Nuts About Squirrels stamp set in the July-December Mini Catalog!
NUTS ABOUT SQUIRRELS
This stamp set is just TOO cute…I love that Nuts About You greeting in it! I know my grandkids will get a kick out of it!
- The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Early Espresso cardstock, scored at 5-1/2 and folded.
- A 4 x 5-1/4 layer of In Good Taste Designer Paper was added on top. (LOVE that paper! I just opened my second package of it!)
- A 1-1/4 x 4 piece of Early Espresso cardstock was added across the front.
- Another pattern in the In Good Taste DSP was cut with the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and added on top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- The squirrel from Nuts About Squirrels stamp set was stamped with Memento Black Ink, and the detail image with Crumb Cake Ink. The acorn top was stamped with stamped off Early Espresso and the nut with Crumb Cake Ink.
- The cheeks were colored with Light Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends.
- The squirrel was hand-cut and added to the rectangle with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- The leaves were stamped with Pumpkin Pie Ink, Bumblebee Ink and Cinnamon Cider Ink and the veins with Early Espresso Ink. The branch was stamped with Early Espresso Ink. They were all hand-cut and added to the card with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- Nuts About You was stamped with Early Espresso Ink and cut with the 1″ Layering Circle Die.
- A trio of gold Brushed Metallic Dots were added to the leaves for a little bling.
SOOOO sweet! OK…check out what Mary did with the Inspiration Monday Challenge over on Create with Connie and Mary!
