SSCB#48 Whats New? Acorn Wreath

Hi and thanks for stopping by! I hope you are doing great! We're at the half way point of the Serendipity Stamps Challenge this month - "What's New". Serendipity Stamps features a month long challenge and there is still lots of time to play!  And while I've already used everything on this card at least once I've used it in a different way. Does that count? The Serendipity Creepy Wreath was introduced last month.  It comes complete with lots of bitty dies so you can embellish the wreath for Halloween, but I thought it would double beautifully as a fall wreath embellished with colorful acorns. 

I've gotten a few requests for a tutorial for how I make my bows and I think I'll be playing around with that soon.   I've been fighting You Tube for too long.  I think I'm a little too self conscious - you'll have to tell me what you think about my Chicago accent.

Those little acorns are from the Oak Leaf and Acorn Die.  I cut each of them twice - once from a darker shade of card stock, and once from a lighter shade of card stock.  I trimmed off the darker cap and adhered it to the light shade acorn. 
 The wood look sequins are from Serendipity - you can order them by color or in a mixed package.  They are nice and flat and since they are a neutral color they coordinate with everything. 
 The stitched zig zag border is from Pretty Pink Posh and you can find it at Serendipity! 

Want to go shopping? The 50% off Stamp of the month for October is the Wheel in Snow.

Mary is also adding a free small cling stamp to every die purchase - her choice while supplies last!

Just a note: The store now features a "wish list" so you can save your favorites!
Now it's your turn!  Need a little more inspiration?  Check out our design team!  We also have a special guest this month!   My sweet friend Pam Simpson from Pam's Crafts!  I hope you'll stop by and tell her hi!! 

Have a great day and I hope I see you at Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog!
