We are celebrating STAMPtember with our friends from Simon Says Stamp today, with a new exclusive set, Nuts About You!
There are coordinating dies too! Yay! This is an exclusive set, illustrated by me, and available only at Simon Says Stamp while quantities last.
I have a few cards to show off using this new set. First up, is a card set that I made with a rich green and brown color scheme:
The little squirrel popping out of the giant acorn is my fave, and I've surrounded him with a ton of smaller acorns.
I used Lawn Fawn hillside borders to create the rolling hills behind the images, and sponged in some soft brown ink where the hills would meet the sky.
Next, I wanted to show that the giant acorn could be fun even without the critter inside.
I stamped enough little acorns and stemmed leaf images to fill the card base. I colored them, splattered brown ink over the entire thing and softened all of the edges with the same brown ink.
Then, I grabbed a large acorn, colored and cut it out before using scissors to cut it down so that the squirrel wouldn't show.
The banner and "thank you" die-cut are both from Avery Elle, and work perfectly to hide the cut acorn. I accented the banner on either side with a few die-cut leaves (from Lawn Fawn.)
I got carried away and made one last card with this set, using only the stamps.
This was such a fun scene to stamp out and color. Some ink splatters again, and that was all I needed to call this card done!
I hope you love the set! If you'd like to see even more cards I whipped up using this new set, head on over to the Neat and Tangled blog this morning - click!
