Paper Smooches SPARKS--Nutty for You

*** To see my card for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, please scroll to the post below or click HERE!  ***

This week's Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge theme is Anything Goes.  I went with one of my very first Paper Smooches sets for my card for the challenge.

Nutty for You card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Paper Smooches
I stamped a pair of acorns on kraft cardstock using dark brown ink and the Falling for You set.  Instead of coloring the images, I paper pieced them using a combination of patterned paper and solid cardstock.

The acorns were arranged on a kraft panel over a strip of yellow floral patterned paper.  For contrast, I edged the floral paper with a scalloped strip cut with PS's Borders 2 die.  I stamped the set's "nutty for you" sentiment next to the acorn, then added a tiny stamped heart in the space just above the acorns.

Don’t miss what the rest of the SPARKS team has created this week. Here’s where to find them:

Materials Used:
Falling for You stamp set, Borders 2 dies (Paper Smooches); Memento Espresso Truffle ink (Tsukineko); Desert Storm cardstock (Neenah); Simply Chartreuse cardstock (Papertrey Ink); Chocolate Chip cardstock (Stampin' Up!); Dutch Mustard Soup 6x6 paper pad (Jillibean Soup); foam tape


  1. Lori, this is so cute! I LOVE the paper pieced acorns- it's finally a little cooler around these parts and your card has me in the mood for FALL! :)

  3. Oh, Lori! Every time I see this card.... I just love it more and more! I LOVE the papers and the little acorns--- the stamping with the polka dots looks so good! LOVE You always knock my socks off! LOVE LOVE LOVE:)
