Fall Acorn card 2

This is my second card I’m entering into the Paper Smooches card challenge here.

It is a cool shade challenge using these colors

OCT_2013 cool shades challenge (Teal, light purple, kraft, orange)

So here is my second card using the adorable acorn in the Paper Smooches “Falling for You” stamp set.


I clear embossed the acorn in the background on kraft paper. Can you see those shimmering in the background? Then I used some distress inks to ink up the banner with purple, teal, and orange. The “Hello” is cut using My Favorite Things hello dies. I painted it with watercolor.


I’m pretty happy about that watercolored acorn. I’m loving my watercolors right now. I popped the acorn up with some dimensionals.

Hello, Fall!

Edited to add: This card was a WINNER! I won the challenge…So Happy, Excited, and Grateful!

May your days be filled with sunshine,

Sunshine In My Pocket
