Good Morning! Have you seen all the squirrels out lately? They have been very busy in my neighborhood and I hope it doesn’t mean a harsh winter. But they inspired me to pull out the sweet Stampin’ Up! Nuts About Squirrels photopolymer stamp set to make a simple Fall Hello card. This is a fun two-step stamp set with the cutest squirrels that you can find in the current Annual Catalog. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
I adhered a panel of the falling leaves Celebrate Everything designer series paper to a Shaded Spruce mat with liquid glue and wrapped a length of Gray Granite baker’s twine around it three times and made a bow. I adhered the wrapped panel to the front of a Crushed Curry card base with dimennsionals.
I stamped the outline of the sweet squirrel from the Stampin’ Up! Nuts About Squirrels stamp set inn Soft Suede ink on Basic White. I stamped the filler stamp with the body and tail in Gray Granite, lining up the paws and tail. It’s nice to be able to line things up with the photopolymer stamps. I stamped the acorn top in Soft Suede and bottom in Crumb Cake. I cut the squirrel out with the second largest square from the Stylish Shapes dies and adhered it to a Shaded Spruce mat with liquid glue. I adhered the squirrel to the card front with dimensionals.
I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Nuts About Squirrels stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Granny Apple Green card stock. I cut it out with the smallest banner die from the Stylish Shapes dies and adhered it to the card with glue dots.
For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Nuts About Squirrels stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the leaf in Crushed Curry and the lines in the leaf in Memento Tuxedo Black – I love how well this leaf matches the leaves in the DSP! I trimmed the bottom with a strip of Celebrate Everything DSP and adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.
The squirrels in the Stampin’ Up! Nuts About Squirrels stamp set are so cute and sweet and they’re perfect for fall cards. The two-step stamping technique is pretty easy to do with this stamp set and there are so many coordinating stamps that compliment the squirrels. Have fun with this set!
