Acorn Ornaments digi ~ Power Poppy
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. 

  Happy Stamping!!

So clever and FUN to use that clipboard to showcase these gorgeous acorn ornaments, aren't they just FAB??? Love your assorted collection of acorns. A few years ago I bought these pretty little glimmer jingle bells and then proceeded to order acorn tops online (yes, you can do that! lol) I painted the tops to match the pretty blues and greens and pinks of the bells and assembled...they made super cute ornaments!

Nice card and nice decorations, Tosha! I love your coloring, the stitched die cut, and the blue and black combination colors.

Totally cool card!! Love the way you colored the acorns and the clip board makes it fun too :) I love your acorn collection. The glass are pretty and the felted ones are so cute! Ive made velvet ones that are similar to the felted. The one to go with your vintage tree is awesome!
