NOW...
Let's get started HOPPING !!


As the title of this month's Blog Hop is Autumn Fun, I decided that I would do things that are fun for me -- techniques.  Each day I will have a card or two that use a different technique.  My first technique is a Shaker Card.

 To make my card, I stamped the image on the right side of a piece of white card stock, carefully cutting out the pumpkins.  Then I stamped the image again on a small scrap and formed the shaker box with foam tape around the pumpkins.  After brushing the sides of the foam tape with baby powder, I added the seed beads and covered the box with acetate.  Then I glued it to the under side of the larger piece of cardstock, lining up the images.  I put additional strips of foam tape around the edge of the card stock panel so that it would sit flat on the card base.

Here's a close-up of the shaker portion of my card.


The MFP Stamp Shop set that I used on this card is the Pumpkins and Sunflowers mini set.


Now it's time to visit the rest of the hop.   Here's the Design Team:

Lois (that's me)
Enjoy the Hop. Come back each day to be  inspired! Get to work on the tutorials and show  us what you make by Aug. 26, 3pm CT  and don't forget to be commenting! Come back to the MFP Stamp Shop Blog on Aug. 27th to see if you are a winner!!
