Mark's Finest Papers Blog Day 4

Welcome to the Mark’s Finest Papers September Blog Hop! This month, we’ve added two new DT members and have shortened link lists! While I’m not officially part of the Blog Candy hop today, thanks for stopping by and looking at my projects.

We have 4 New Stamp Sets Released this week: Autumn Fun, Broom Rides, Stinky Situation, and Thankful Mums and Pumpkins. For your convenience, all 4 stamp sets are available for purchase TODAY!

For your chance to win BLOG CANDY, (a set that will be released NEXT month), visit and comment on each of the other design team members' blogs. On Saturday, (September 11, 2010), a winner will be chosen from those participants who visited all the blogs listed for today. (There will be four different winners, one winner for each day of the blog hop. You DO NOT have to comment every day. However, the more days you comment, the more chances you have to win!) If you miss a day, you can go back and comment on each day's blogs, as the winners will be chosen Saturday morning!

We end the Blog Hop with Thankful Mums and Pumpkin.

Both of my projects for today are 3-D. The first is a “stamped” candle. Actually, you stamp on a piece of tissue paper and “melt” the image into the candle. For complete directions, here is the tutorial from SCS.

I love pumpkin butter, as do many of my friends. Here is a little gift set you could present to someone for almost any occasion this fall. I made a “thank you” tag using the pumpkin image and tied it with hemp twine around a purchased jar of pumpkin butter. The accompanying note card uses the same image and some DP from Basic Grey’s Eerie paper pad.

I think these “critter” pilgrim salt and pepper shakers are so cute.

Be sure to visit the rest of the team to see what they did with this set and comment on each of the participating members’ blogs. You have one more chance to win one of the stamp sets to be released next month.

Here is today's Blog Hop LINE UP:

Lois, your projects are stunning!! That candle is amazing--I had no idea that you stamped on tissue first and melted it to the candle!! I'm going to have to check out that tutorial. What a fabulous gift that would make:) Love your pumpkin tag for the pumpkin butter and matching card, too :)

I'm just now getting around to seeing these cute s&p shakers. Perfect for Fall. Wow! I love that candle.
Your pumpkin card is so pretty. I have to say I've never had pumpkin butter or even heard of it. Of course, I've had apple butter. Don't know if that is even close to the same thing.
