Today we are featuring the "Autumn Fun" set:
For my card, I decided to make a shaker card with the "Autumn Fun" set. Splitcoaststampers has an easy-to-follow tutorial on how to make this type of card. I used pumpkin-shaped Nestabilities to create my shaker. I stamped the sentiment on the inside of the shaker and used the crackle background from the "Background Fun" set. I added seed inside the shaker and added the stamped squirrel on the outside of the shaker. The papers used are Early Expresso, Crumb Cake, Pumpkin Pie,Crumb Cake, Old Olive from Stampin Up and patterned paper from Graphic 45. The Old Olive is cut with a Martha Stewart branch edge punch. Isn't this little squirrel just the cutest?
Head over to the blog: http://marksfinestpapers.blogspot.com/ to view the blog hop line up.
Join us tomorrow for day 2 of the blog hop!
I am entering this card in the Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge 32. I used Old Olive, Early Expresso, Crumb Cake, and Pumpkin Pie, which is similar to Tangerine Tango.
