Okay, some of you may be shocked!! I'm posting a card two days in a row, and it's not even for a Clear Stamps set release. Crazy!! Since today is the 5th of November, Power Poppy has a new digital stamp set for y'all!! It's called Acorn Ornaments, and they are quite the vintage delight!!
Now, I LOVE acorns. I have sparkly acorns, felted acorns, glass acorns, and even a few acorn ornaments myself. I have a few pictures to share at the end of this post. But first, about today's project.
I mixed some modern papers with some vintage ornaments. Hope you don't mind. I also played around with the colors. I actually have a couple of turquoise glass acorns with copper tops. They were the inspiration for these ornaments today. Unfortunately, I used them to decorate an event at our church, and they're packed away right now, so they weren't easily accessible to photograph.
I just received some fun supplies the other day, and included was this mini-clipboard by Fancypants. It was the perfect size and I thought fit the style I was going for beautifully. The hardware was easily removed and added again once I decorated it with some charming Perfectly Plaid paper by Lawn Fawn.
For the far right acorn, I tried a technique I found on Pinterest to give it an aged copper look. It's a tutorial by Copic in the Craftroom. I need some more practice, but I don't think it turned out too badly for my first time.
I printed the sentiment on a piece of decorated paper, diecut it, and added it to the clipboard along with some enamel dots and ribbon. That was it. Today's project only took me 2 hours to color, design, and put together. That is quite a feat for me, let me tell you!
Here's a list of all the Copics I used:
Copics: BG49, BG57, BG45, BG70, E09, E39, E97, E95, BG99, Y28, YR23, Y15, Y11,W8, W6, W4, W2, W00
Here are a few pictures of acorns that I have out on display right now. The two glass acorns below are displayed on a tray with a fun pumpkin that actually lights up. There are a few painted wooden acorns laying on the tray too.
I love all things felted. So, of course I needed some felted acorns right? These babies are on display in a fun twig nest.
And lastly, this ornament is laying at the base of my vintage tree collage. I leave it up and decorated year round. This guy is just way too big for my 2 1/2 ft tree, so he's gracing the bottom along with a crown and some other vintage goodies.
That's it for me today y'all. Be sure to stop by the Power Poppy Blog for a list of all the gals sharing their acorn projects today. I hope you are enjoying your weekend.
