Little Nutty Buddy


It’s Wednesday, and this week I’m sharing a card featuring Little Nutty Buddy – M150 from (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) with the sweet sentiment Happy Fall Y’all – G086 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps). My husband and I went on a wonderful nature walk this past weekend through the forest to see to falls. It was very beautiful seeing the fall colours and the little squirrels running around gathering acorns for their winter supply of food, just like little Nutty Buddy.

To create the card this week, I began with base card 5.25″ x 4.25″ from The Paper Studio – Primary Base Colours. I inked around all of the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Ground Espresso. The scalloped circles were die cut using my Cuttlebug and Spellbinders Nestabilities – Petite Scalloped Circles – Large. For the larger circle – AC Cardstock – Autumn was used and then inked around with the same ink used on the base card. The background acorn paper was die cut using My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies. Both of the background papers are from Your Next Stamp – Fabulous Fall collection. I inked around the patterned die cuts with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Spiced Marmalade.

The sentiment was stamped with Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and then Nellie Snellin Die – MFD 007 was used to cut it out. I then cut the border part of the die cut off and just left the oval centre. This was inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Spiced Marmalade. 2 Kraftin’ Kimmie – Holiday Dots were added on both sides.

I stamped the main image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. It was coloured in with Copic Markers. Then I put it through my Brother Scan and Cut to create the thin white border around the image.

To assemble the card, I attached the main background and large scalloped circle directly to the base using 2-sided tape. The sentiment, smaller scalloped circle and image were popped up with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.
