Tall Oaks

It's Verve release day today, which means there are six new sets and three Plain Janes now available. Check out all of the new fall and wintry options here. This card uses the new set, Tall Oaks, mixed with some Webster's Pages background paper and American Crafts ribbon. I stamped the acorn in timber brown Staz On, but I suggest you use another permanent brown ink. One, it doesn't stamp well with clear stamps. I actually had to go over it with a marker after I finished water coloring. And, two, I've heard it's not good for your clear stamps either. This uses Julee's Holiday Release Sketch 2 from last week.

What's In It?
Stamps: Tall Oaks (Verve)
Paper: very vanilla, chocolate chip, really rust (Stampin' Up!); Parlor Collection "Wicker" (Webster's Pages)
Ink: choclate chip, creamy caramel (SU!); Timber Brown (StazOn)
Accessories: ribbon (American Crafts); slot punch (SU!); icons rhinestones (Me & My Big Ideas); dimensionals

Finally, a great big thanks to all of you for your very sweet comments and heartfelt concern. You sure know how to make a girl feel loved. I'm feeling all better physically and much improved emotionally, though I know it will take. My mom said she still thinks of her lost little one from a miscarriage she suffered. Again, TRULY, THANKS!
