March Squirrels Gone Nutz

Hey Crafty People!

It’s time for another Squirrels Gone Nutz hop; it’s one of my favourite times of each month, hopping along seeing the gorgeous creations everyone has made! This month’s supply is Specialty Paper and our prompt is the colour Green!

I realised that I don’t really use much green in my designs, so this was a bit of a creative stretch for me, which I love!

I grabbed a bunch of different shades of green cardstock, and two different shades of green glitterstock, along with the Branches & Berries die set from Altenew. I’ve not used these dies yet, so I was happy to get the chance to use them now.

I cut a whole bunch of each of the dies from each of the papers I had; I was able to cut through the glitter paper using a metal shim and running it through my Gemini Jr a couple of times

I trimmed down a strip of Buff cardstock and I added two strips of double sided tape at the top, these are holding the different pieces in place.

I added the different die cuts, layering them together to create a full but balanced design, and once I was happy with it, I added two more strips of double sided tape so that the pieces are sandwiched in between them and there is no risk of them going anywhere!!

I cut the bold thanks due from Altenew out of Neenah 110lb with a vellum shadow; I ran the letters through my Xyron mini which makes them super easy to adhere onto the vellum. Then I cam just use some dots of glue that are hidden by the letters to attach the whole thing onto the Buff strip.


Today I’m taking part in a Team Tiny hop, this one is #TeamTinyInspirationHop and I’m in Day 1 of the 2 day mega hop!

I used the Geo Steps 3D Embossing Folder from Altenew on an a2 panel of Neenah 80lb, then popped up my strip on foam tape onto the background panel.

I finished the design really simply with some clear droplets which are from Little Things by Lucy’s Cards

As always, this is a hop that is sure to be filled with some amazing inspiration, and your next stop is the wonderful Marie, so be sure to head over and give her some love. ❤

  1. Gorgeous!!! I love how the assorted shades of green look together! That sentiment is gorgeous too!!! This makes me want to use some of my unused foliage dies… I think we all have them!!! If I find time to make something with them, I’ll tag you! I wish I had the ability to craft more cause I’d love to do a “Inspired By” series CASEing my sweet Squirrels!!! My Tasha cards would probably all be florals 💗

  4. What a unique and awesome way to use a bunch of smaller dies! I love that this card could be given to anyone, without worrying about it being too feminine or too masculine. PERFECT! You always amaze me with your cards, Tasha! 🙂
