I’m starting off the Hop with two projects for today’s set – Autumn Fun.
For my card, I created the background by cutting small octagonal shapes from K & Company’s Fall Harvest Mat Pad DP and gluing them down on the green panel. I stamped the squirrel from Autumn Fun onto MFP Corn Husk, which is cut using a larger octagonal Nestabilities die and matted twice. I added some twine and an acorn charm at the top.
My second project is a picture frame. Using several of the smaller stamps from this versatile set, I decorated the mat in various fall colors. The basket of leaves is colored using Copic markers. The cute guy in the photo is my two-year old grandson William.
A set of acorn salt and pepper shakers I got at Ruby Falls/Lookout Mountain, Tennessee, where my late husband and I visited during our 25th anniversary trip to Nashville -- 23 years ago. He was a country music fan; I was/am a country music tolerator!
Be sure to visit the rest of the team to see what they did with this set. And remember, you have a chance to win one of the stamp sets to be released next month.
