Aww Nuts

I haven’t done Beate’s weekend sketch in forever. Liked today’s layout so I decided to do it. I used Our Craft Lounge’s set, Nuts About You.

Colored with prismacolor pencils and blended with odorless mineral spirits. Used atyou Spica black glitter pen on his nose, eye and top of nut. Stamped nuts in versamark on the really rust layer while the wording was stamped in distress walnut ink. Circle nestie was used as was SU’s scallop border punch.


A few days ago I decided to create another Christmas card using Jolly Ornaments also from Our Craft Lounge.

Stamped the ornaments in versamark and embossed with silver. Cut out the middles with an xacto knife and placed paper from the DCWV Christmas Matstack behind them. Embossed the ribbons in clear embossing powder and added faux stitching. Layered onto Bravo burgundy and stamped wording in Bravo Burgundy.


Supplies used:

Nuts About You, really rust, more mustard, chocolate chip, autumn vine dp, black ink, walnut stain distress ink, prismacolor pencils, odorless mineral spirits, scalloped border punch, circle nesties,

Jolly Ornaments, natural confetti, bravo burgundy, dcwv christmas stack, versamark, bravo burgundy ink, sliver & clear embossing powder, xacto knife
