SU Acorny Thanks with Sheltering Tree

I have been stepping on acorns everywhere as I walk in both Pittsburgh and Orlando these last two months. I can’t keep my grandpuppies out of them! And, boy do they jump when one pops down on them:)
Here’s a pic of the little rascals, Archie and Lucy.

Those dancing acorns got me to thinking of the cute SU Acorny Thanks stamp set…got me to perusing Pinterest…lead me to a neat card by my friend, Patsy Waggoner, who I got to meet and hang out with on a trip last year:)

You can see how I changed up the colors using some fun colors that were asking to be used, added some embossing on the die cut panel, and used a different sentiment but the layout Patsy created was just so great I went with it!  I love the grateful sentiment in the set but seem to always need birthday cards so I used the Happy Birthday sentiment from Thoughtful Banners cut out with the Classic Label punch.

SU Acorny Thanks in a Baker’s Box

November 6, 2015

When my friend, Claire, chose a Thankful Theme for The Paper Players Challenge #269, I knew some great people I am thankful for everyday.

Since stamping is my obsession, it is always on my mind…therefore all the wonderful ladies I stamp with at classes are on my mind every day. I am so grateful for the friendships I have been blessed with since I started sharing my hobby with others. It is just amazing how we all have such a great time with each other- different personalities and different lives but all women enjoying each other’s company as we get creative each month together. I love all of them, dearly. Here was a little token of my thanks to all the girls who take time out of their lives to make me smile at class:

SU Acorny Thanks Baker's Box single

I used the SU Acorny Thanks stamp set and coordinating punch along with my 2 inch circle and 2 3/8″ scallop circle punch to decorate my SU Baker’s Box made with the easy to cut out die! I went with a neutral base of Crumb Cake and accented it with Mossy Meadow- my favorite green right now.  I added a little Winter Wonderland Designer Vellum to coordinate with the Gold Glimmer paper on the acorn. How awesome that the sentiment fits inside the Itty Bitty Banners Framelits!

TIP: Don’t put together your box without the handle openings cut out! Oh yeah, I thought I could just do some simple hole punches to rectify my error but I just could not get them straight…maybe after cutting and putting together 60 boxes my mind and hands were not working….lol.  So I pulled out some gold binding clips I had. Well, I had three…so Amazon helped me out and I ended up with pretty coordinated gold clips!

What’s inside? Washi tape fit perfectly!

Gotta run to set up my next class and give out the favors!
