Here is the last card that we made in class last night.

Acorn Builder Punch
Acorny Thank You stamp set
Thankful Forest Friends stamp set
Crumb Cake ink
Soft Suede Ink
Rich Razzleberry Ink
Mossy Meadow Ink

5 1/2 x 8 1/2" Crumb Cake card stock--score at 4 1/4 & fold in half.

HINT--Always stamp the inside of your card first if you can.  That way if you make a mistake you can fold it & use the inside for the front.  It would be covered with this card & no one would know!

5 1/4 x 4 Mossy Meadow card stock
3- Into the woods Designer Series Paper 1 1/2 x 3 3/4"

Early Espresso card stock--I used the 3rd from the smallest of the Deco Labels Framelits.  You will need your Big Shot for this.

scrap piece of white card stock--stamp your greeting from Thankful Forest Friends in Mossy Meadow ink
Take a Blender Pen and carefully wipe off the ink from the little acorn.  Clean the Blender Pen.  Now use a Rich Razzleberry marker (or use the blender pen & ink if you don't have a marker) & color the acorn.  Huff on the stamp & stamp.

Huff means to breath on the stamp--the warm air will moisten the ink again in case any started to dry.

Now take the #2 Deco Label Framelit (smallest to largest) & cut out the greeting.  Layer on the Early Espresso & mount with Dimensionals (I used 5) to the card front.

Punch out 2 acorns & stamp them
the bottoms are Soft Suede & 1 top is Crumb Cake & the other is Rich Razzleberry.--Sponge the edges if you don't want any white showing. (I did this in the picture)
1 Dimensional on the bottom of each acorn
Mount the acorns with the top handle or point together.
I used a glue dot & Gold Metallic Thread--I just did a couple loops & always touched the centers on the glue dot.  Then I put a Sequin on to finish it.

Happy Stampin
