Instructions: Click here to view a larger photo of this project. Cut this Svg File out of the Cardstock and the paper collection papers, then glue it together as the instructions show you! Cut a piece of Cardboard for the garden, this one is 11 x 11 inches, cover the cardboard with Paper from the paper Collection. Take an empty spool from a tape roll and cover this, place this on the left upper corner of your garden, place the acorn on top of the spool, now it will stand. Take the 3 plastic acorns and cut off the bottom so that they get shorter, place them in front of the acorn like a step. Stamp with Jet Black and the Wildwood Cottage Stamp on White cardstock and color these with the Rich Cocoa, cut them out with the coordinating dies and glue the door and 2 windows on the acorn. Make a doorknob with the Nuvo drops. Use the Template (see my Blog) to cut out the shape for the bridge cut it out 2x and cut ice sticks at 2 inch and glue them on top of the bridge, now color the whole bridge with Rich Cocoa. Put some moss here and there, glue the little stones in a shape you like for a pond and fill it with a low layer of the 3D Crystal lacquer, let it dry, now stamp with Jet Black and the Woodsy Wonderland stamp some Greenery on White cardstock, color it with the bamboo Leaves and cut it out with the coordinating die, place them in the garden in front of the bridge, you can decorate it to your own wishes too.
Stamp the Flowers and leaves from the Oakberry Lane Blossom stamp with the Sweet Plum on White cardstock and cut them out with the coordinating die, then color the centers of the flowers with Buttercup and the rest of the flower with Cactus Flower. The leaves you color with a mix of the greens and a little bit of the Rich Cocoa and the pink. Then put 1 layer of flowers in the 3D mold and spray them with a mist of water then add another layer of flowers and leaves and do the same, you can put 3 layers in the mold, now run them through your machine, place the flowers on your mat and press in the center so the flowers will pop up. Make holes in the centers and pull some Flower stamens through, now put some glue on the flower with a sponge or glue bottle this is easy because of the fine tip, then sprinkle some shard glass in it.
Stamp the Squirrels with the Black Ink and color them with Rich Cocoa and Toffee Crunch, take your Blender marker and color the little flowers with Cactus Flower. Cut them out with the coordinating dies and place them in the garden, bridge, and roof, behind the Squirrels you can glue a piece of acetate so that they stand up very well.
