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.
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.
This card is amazing! We love how you created the tree using the log stamp, the leaves and acorns look fabulous too… a wonderful Autumn scene for our squirrel stamp! Thank you Lynda ♡
