Stampin' Addicts Fall Holiday 2015 Blog Hop: Acorny Thank You

Welcome to another Stampin' Addicts Blog Hop! Stampin' Addicts is a great place to socialize with other stampers, and I have met a great group of ladies who I get to hop with several times a year. Come join us for some conversation!

We are all so excited about this Holiday Mini, there is so much goodness in it, you are sure to find lots of stamps, dies, and accessories that you just have to have. I know, because I already did :) And it is going to take all 4 months that the Holiday Mini is live for me to get it all too, lol!

If you are following along in order, then you just arrived from the hopmeister, Yapha Mason! She featured Lighthearted Leaves and now I am really glad that I pre-ordered that lovely set :)

I am featuring the Acorny Thank You stamp set and the Acorn Builder punch. They are available as a bundle to save you some $$. But I won the stamp set as a Prize Patrol at convention. If you want to know more about that, shoot me a comment and we can talk about Prize Patrol and the many other benefits of being a demonstrator :)

Let's start with a more expected use of this stamp set, a fun Hi! card. The stitching and paper piercing make this simple card more special, don't you think? The colors are Sahara Sand, Crumb Cake, and Early Espresso.  All of the supplies that I used for these cards are listed at the bottom of this post :)

I really thought the acorns minus the stems look like stocking caps, so I tried out that theory. What do you think? Still acorny? I used a few more of the goodies from the Holiday Mini, how could I resist! For the trees, I used a sponge dauber to tap white ink on the trees on the embossing folder.

And then there is this cool Self Closing Box that has been making the rounds on Pinterest and blogs everywhere! Love this little box!  There are several videos out there to create this box. If enough people are interested, I may make a video myself :) We did make these at my August Papercrafting class, and everybody loved them! A gift card with some goodies is an idea I am going to use a lot for Christmas.

Now it is time to go see what Kathleen Brill-Myrice has created with the Sweet Hauntings stamp set!

Love your projects! I love that little box so much that in fact I almost made one for the hop too. But yours is way pretty.

Paula said...

So cute! I've been out of things for awhile so your box is all new to me. Love it.

Love the upside down acorns! They are so playful! I love this set!

Awesome projects, Tanya! The winter caps are an adorable way to change up the acorns. I really like the self-closing box.
