Click on the Order Online on the right and get the best Stampin' Up deals around! All items are retired or discontinued and only available while supplies last!

PPA9 - Sometimes you feel like a nut.....

And sometimes you add one to a card! This was a fun Fall challenge and I used Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie and Whisper White card stock. Stampin' Up's Autumn Fest was used and is no longer available. The small leaves were stamped using two colors- Get your Basic Brown Stamp Pad ready by keeping it closed and smooshing the top and bottom together. Open it up, and put the leaf stamp on the pumpkin pie pad and then dip in the ink in the lid of the Basic Brown. Stamp on a piece of paper and then stamp on the card stock. Do the same with the Old Olive leaf. Use the Cutter Kit to rough up the edges and then sponge them with Old Olive. I used the bigger leaf and stamped them in Old Olive Ink on Old Olive card stock. The Pumpkin Pie was punched with the Wide Oval. Happy Thanksgiving from the Teeny Tiny Wishes was stamped in Old Olive and then layered after being punched out with the Large Oval Punch. I added an acorn stamped with the Basic Brown Marker and then dangled it with the Linen Thread. Happy Stamping!
