A Nutty Birthday

I was at my local scrapbooking store on Thursday and I saw this adorable stamp set, and, well you know, I JUST HAD TO HAVE IT! LOL! The set is from Clear Dollar Stamps and is called 'Just Nutty'. It comes with the cutest images and sentiments. Some of the sentiments are 'Going nuts?', 'From a bunch of nuts', 'Hang in there', 'its been nuts', 'I'm just nutty about you', etc. It also comes with tree/branch images, nut/leaf images, several squirrel images, AND rabbit ears if you want to change your squirrel into a bunny rabbit, and a Santa Claus hat for Christmas Cards. Its one of the most versatile sets I've ever seen.
For this card, I used the tree, squirrel images, and nut images. My cardstock colors are Stampin Up! 'Old Olive', 'Chocolate Chip, 'Really Rust', 'More Mustard',"Not Quite Navy' and 'Naturals Ivory'. The Chocolate Chip panel was run thru the Cuttlebug with the 'Branches' embossing folder. I stamped the 'Naturals Ivory' background with the peanut image in the set, then sponged the edges with Chocolate Chip ink. The Leaves are cut with a Cuttlebug leaf die. The sentiment is popped up on dimensionals and hemp was added for embellishment. I colored the images with Copic markers. The Layout is this months 'Sheetloads of Cards' sketch. I also stamped the inside of the card, as shown in the second picture.
Today I had my Christmas Card class. We had so much fun! It was such a good day. We made 25 Christmas Cards! The first guest arrived at 9:00 a.m., and the last guest left after 5:00, so it was quite a long day for some of the ladies. I think next year we'll just make 20 cards. LOL! I was very impressed with how fast the ladies picked everything up and how beautiful all their cards turned out. I had planned to take pictures of the event and post them for you all to see, but I ended up being so busy helping people all day, I never had the time to grab my camera and take the pics! Oh well, maybe my next class I'll have more time.
Thats all for today. Thanks for stopping by. Amy
