Squirrel’s gift


My idea began with the Fusion challenge; using a critter with the colors of brown, green and yellow.


For my critter, I chose Squirrel from the Special Someone Stamp Set, because I knew he would love the wonderful acorn in the Painted Harvest Stamp Set. First, I stamped Squirrel in Early Espresso Ink and Sahara Sand Ink, and used his Special Day Die for cutting. Then, I stamped several acorns in shades of brown that are named in my Product List below, and fussy cut them.

Next, I used the largest Stitched So Sweetly Die to cut a rectangle from Whisper White Cardstock, and stamped a pile of acorns. I figured Squirrel would be very happy standing on a pile of acorns.


Squirrel’s generosity warmed my heart, when he chose the sentiment, “for you,” from the So Sentimental Stamp Set. This small sentiment fit perfectly in the “bubble” that I cut with a die from the Special Someone Stamp Set. Doesn’t Squirrel look cute holding the acorn?

So far, everything was brown and white, so I used a Garden Green card base, topped with a great plaid from Country Club Designer Paper. The leaves are from the Painted Harvest Stamp Set, stamped in Garden Green Ink, and cut with the Leaf Punch. If you haven’t seen this punch before, you can check it out in my Product List.

Last, but not least, I used a Special Day Die to cut some yellow flowers, a very brilliant yellow named Pineapple Punch.


Squirrel is excited to share his acorns. What a nice, little squirrel he is! “Nuts for you” could even be a Valentine!

Squirrel and I thank you for stopping by. He wants you to know that his stamp set is available now, and his coordinating dies are available Feb. 4th. Plus, he is proud to say, his stamp set and dies will be in the future 2020-2021 Annual Catalog!
