I get a ton of emails everyday... which I love! So keep them coming. Some just have a question about how I did a certain technique or maybe just confirming some of the wonky directions on a tutorial ( cuz that could easily happen ). I get emails of thanks and appreciation ~ I really love those ones ~ they just warm my heart and I also get requests for card ideas using a particular stamp set or image.
So Linda needed some ideas for the Nuts about Squirrels stamp set.
This card was created using Nuts about Squirrels combined with the Hello Harvest Bundle, as well as the Leaf Fall 3D embossing folder.
The card is pretty straight forward with a traditional card base cut at 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 ~ Scored at 4 1/4
The embossed layer is Very Vanilla cut at 4 x 5 1/4
The Sentiment was heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder on a pieced of Cherry Cobbler card stock to coordinate with the card base color.
I stamped and colored a pumpkin from the Hello Harvest Bundle, 2 leaves, and a few die cut pumpkin stems.
The squirrel was stamped from the Nuts about Squirrels stamp set in stamped off basic grey and then just fussy cut
( its easy ).
The elements were then popped onto the card front, some using dimensionals.
I attached a few gold gems to add a little sparkle to the card front.
The Inside panel was cut from Very Vanilla Cardstock at 4 x 5 1/4. Stamped with "Happy Birthday" from the Go to Greetings Stamp set, and a Cherry Cobbler leaf from the Hello Harvest Stamp set.
We have a few more Nuts about Squirrel Cards coming up so that Linda has a few ideas to choose from and I certainly hope they give her some ideas to create her cards.
I see squirrels all year round. Winter is just approaching here, and the squirrels will remain for the cold brutal season.
Do you see squirrels throughout all of the seasons?
Does anyone feed them?
Which colored squirrel do you like the best? or maybe you don't like them at all?

Scissors or paper snips ~ can make all the difference in achieving a cutting project ( like fussy cutting that squirrel ).
Paper Snips are a staple tool for expert cutting even in small areas. The precision-ground stainless steel tips cut cleanly all the way to the end of the blades.
