Creation Station Blog Hop - Power of the Punch

Two days. That's when Jack heads back to school. The summer has flown by and third grade is upon us. *sigh* He's nervous, but his teacher seems nice and his good buddy is in the same classroom, so here's to keeping our fingers crossed for a good year!

This month's blog hop, "Power of the Punch" got my creative wheels turning. With the fall season upon our doorsteps, I thought I would create something for my favorite time of year!

Isn't this crate of acorns just the cutest? Love them! And they were easy to make! How you may ask? With three simple punches and a little snip, snip!

I used the largest of the two balloons on the Balloon Bouquet punch in Crumb Cake (just snip off the little tie end), the 1 3/8" Circle punch (cut that in half)  and the leaf from the Lemon Builder punch (just snip off the top third of the stem end), both in Soft Suede. Voila! instant acorns!

I wanted these little guys to shine, so I kept the rest of my card pretty simple. A strip of Whisper White card stock stamped in Crushed Curry ink with our fabulous new Buffalo Check background stamp adds a touch of color. The saying from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set seemed appropriately funny. 

Hope you enjoyed my nuts! Make sure you hop along to see what the sweet and funny Andrea has to share. Happy Stamping!
