Squirrel Stamp | My Kind of Nutty

Hello! Thanks for visiting our blog today! Ali is here with an amazing handmade card created with our NUTS ABOUT SQUIRRELS stamp set which includes the super cute squirrel stamp, fabulous acorns, a log and some fun sentiments…


Autumn is one of my favourite times of year, the beautiful colours, the nights starting to draw in plus new stamp releases from Visible Image ūüėÄ I’ve used the new ‘Nuts about Squirrels’ stamp set, and the ‘Autumn Leaves’ stencil which goes perfectly with this new release.



Tutorial


Cut a piece of white stamping card 145mm x 145mm.



Apply Scattered Straw distress oxide ink over 3 sections of your card using a blending brush.


Repeat with the Carved Pumpkin, Salvaged Patina and Seedless Preserves. Blend the colours where they touch.


Spritz a little water over your piece, leave for a few seconds and blot with a paper towel.


Dry with your heat gun.



Position the ‘Autumn Leaves’ stencil over your coloured card and tape down with low tack tape.


Colour the leaves with your oxide inks.



Remove the stencil and spritz with a gold spray such as Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent Gold Airless Mister.


Dry with your heat tool.



Wipe over your coloured panel with an anti static pad.


Stamp the squirrel silhouette stamps around the edge using brown versafine ink and heat emboss with clear embossing powder.



Stamp the large squirrel, one of the sentiments and quite a few leaves and acorn stamps with brown versafine ink, and clear heat emboss as before.



Colour your stamped images using watercolour markers and cut them out.



Apply a little gold gilding wax using the tip of your finger over all of your clear heat embossing.


Leave for a few minutes then burnish with a paper towel to bring up the metallic effect.



Cut a 9cm square from the centre of your panel.



Matt the large panel onto black card with a border of 5mm.


Matt your 9cm centre piece with a black border of 3mm.


Cut out your sentiment and matt it onto black card leaving 1.5mm border.



Attach the large panel to a white 7″x7″ card blank directly using pva glue.


Fix the centre panel with double sided foam pads so it is raised.


Mould your cut out pieces between your fingers to curve and shape them.


Attach the squirrel, leaves, nuts and sentiment using 3D glue gel.

Squirrel Stamp Handmade Card 

Squirrel Stamp | Autumn | Fall Card

Hi there! Thanks for visiting our blog today. We have lots of gorgeous inspiration to share this week! Lynda is kicking us off with a fantastic Autumn | Fall card created with our NUTS ABOUT SQUIRRELS stamp set, which includes the cute squirrel stamp, acorns, leaves and more…


Autumn has arrived! It’s my absolute favourite season and I just love to craft using it as inspiration, so the new release from Visible Image filled me with joy when I saw it.


Today’s project features the beautiful (and amusing) ‘Nuts About Squirrels’ stamp set.


squirrel stamp | acorns | leaves | autumn | fall | clear | rubber


I wanted to make a woodland scene for my foraging squirrel to sit in, so I began by using a selection of Autumnal coloured Distress Oxide Inks, swiping on my craft mat, spritzing with water and dabbing some watercolour card in, until I was happy with the result.



I then created a tree trunk on craft card by using the log stamp from the set as bark. I coloured this with more distress ink using a water brush, and cut a hole from the top to make a little squirrel home.



Once I was sure where I wanted to position my tree, I stamped a silhouette squirrel inside the hole. I mounted the tree over the top with 3D gel glue, bending it a little to round it and add dimension.



Then came the fiddly part- stamping lots of leaves and acorns and fussy cutting.



I used 3d glue gel again to adhere these , laying some fallen ones on the ground, along with some Flowersoft for added texture, and set my squirrel at the base of the tree.



I finished with a fun sentiment from the set, bordered with black card to make it pop.
