I used the one of the new Stampin’ Up! stamp sets from the upcoming 2015 Holiday Catalog with a bit of an odd name…Acorny Thank You, to create my card to share today.
My card layout was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches #198.
The colors for my card were inspired by Pals Paper Arts 262.
I started by stamping the acorn images from the Acorny Thank You photopolymer stamp set (available Sept 1) in Mint Macaron ink on a panel of Mint Macaron card stock. I adhered the stamped panel to a panel of Tip Top Taupe card stock with SNAIL, then to a Pool Party card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I adhered a strip of 1-1/4″ Burlap Ribbon to the card front with Fast Fuse Adhesive, then I adhered a panel from the Into the Woods DSP pack (available Sept 1) to a panel of Tip Top Taupe card stock with SNAIL, then to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I stamped the sentiment from the Acorny Thank You stamp set in Tip Top Taupe ink on a panel of Mint Macaron card stock, then I stamped the acorn images in Tip Top Taupe ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock. I inked the lower part and stamped it on scrap paper once before stamping it on the Whisper White panel to give it a slightly different shade. I punched the acorn pieces out with the matching Acorn Builder Punch and adhered them together with SNAIL. I adhered the top two acorns to the card front with SNAIL and the one closest to the sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I finished the card front by tying bows with Linen Thread through three Pool Party Buttons from the Subtles Designer Buttons pack. I adhered the buttons to the card front with Glue Dots.
I stamped the acorn images from the Acorny Thank You stamp set in Tip Top Taupe ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock inside the card.

Those are really cute acorns, but I have to agree with you that the name is a bit odd. I would not even like to say it less look at the words! Love your acorn card, Amy! You certainly carried the theme all the way through!
Thanks Roberta…glad that I’m not the only one who found the name a little unusual. 🙂
Love the card and can’t wait to get my set to play with. Thanks for sharing. Joyce
Thanks so much Joyce! 🙂
So adorable, Amy!
Thanks Patti! 🙂
Love the burlap behind it! Fits so well with the cute acorns.
Thanks so much Susan! 🙂
Love how you created soft background stamping the acorns on the Mint Macaron in Mint Macaron ink. This adds to the whimsy of the card.
Thanks for stopping by to leave a comment!
GREAT card…the color combo is unexpected for a fall card, but works perfectly. Love how the acorns are “dropping in” on the card! So cute.
Thanks so much! 🙂
