Simply Nuts About the Acorn Builder Punch

This quartet of acorns for my Simple Saturday card was created in a snap using the Stampin’ Up! Acorn Builder Punch.  It’s on the list of My Favorite Things in the Holiday Catalog.

STAMPIN’ PRETTY TIPS:

  • I used a coordinating button and touch of Linen Thread to dress up each acorn.  Glue Dots keep the buttons securely in place.

  • My favorite trick for getting good ink coverage with a solid photopolymer stamp (like the acorn) is to have the Stampin’ Pierce Mat below the cardstock when you stamp.  The wee bit of cushion makes a big difference.
  • Cheer All Year photopolymer stamp set promises creative mileage for Halloween, fall and Christmas cards.

  • I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to give a lift to the far left and right acorns as well as the top layer of Whisper White card stock.
