There’s a lovely large group of kids in the orchestra at the high school this year. So, I’ve spent a few of my mornings this week wrapping up most of the uniform fittings. The kids look so dapper in their gowns and tuxedos. And the music they produce keeps step with their appearance. It’s truly amazing how good a high school symphony orchestra can sound! Pardon me if I’ve said this before. But you see, the instrumental music program at the high school is one of the things that has kept us in this community. And, I can’t say enough good things about it.
The name of today’s stamp set is perfect for my thoughts – Acorny Thank You.
While my sentiments may verge on gushing (not my norm), they are indeed heartfelt rather than corny. And the stamp set is lovely for Fall rather than goofy.
Here’s how I combined Acorny Thank You with MOJO414.
I’ve been dying to cut into the Into the Woods designer paper and this card presented a perfect opportunity. This piece is full of Blackberry Bliss, Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive and Mossy Meadow. It’s perfect over a base of Blackberry Bliss cardstock.
I decided to make the next layer in the sketch from Mossy Meadow and turn it into a shaker where the pieces move just along the sides and top. I’ve added both Gold Sequins and punched circles in Old Olive and Blackberry Bliss.
The banner layer is a piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock that has been cut with the Banner Triple punch and then embossed with the Boho Chic folder.
Next are the two acorns. The bottom acorn is punched from a piece of Rich Razzleberry and its top is a piece of Whisper White covered with Season of Cheer washi. The top acorn is stamped in Old Olive using an image from Acorny Thank You. It’s cap is Whisper White covered with Cherry On Top washi.
Finally, the center band on the card uses Into the Woods ribbon (Fast Fuse is my adhesive of choice for ribbon). I love the way Rich Razzleberry and Blackberry Bliss play together — yummy!
