We're shaking it...

Good evening!
Tonight the GKD CSS Alumni girls are shakin' it up with a treasure chest hop.

If you came from the talented Tera's blog, you are right on track. If you just stopped by to visit, I encourage you to go to Stamp TV start at the beginning so you do not miss out on the gorgeous samples.
As I mentioned this is a treasure chest hop and Carolina pulled out a falled themed shaker card for our inspiration. If you are not familiar with shaker cards here are a couple of videos that show you how to make them.
Shaker Cards Part 1
AND
Shaker Cards Part 2

Fall reminds me of pumpkins and the autumn beautiful colors so I went with fall colors and pumkins for my card.

I used The Giving Tree and Autumn Beauty stamp sets to create my shaker card. Inside the shaker is leaves punch from the same color cardstock as I used for the card and the little pumpkins were one-time brads. I did not have a little pumpkin punch so I cut off the prongs of the pumpkin brads and used them.
Make sure you are leaving a comment as you hop along because on Tuesday morning (September 27), we will randomly choose one of the comments from all the blogs who will get a stamp set of their choice valued up to $24.95!





Now I am going to send you on your way to Miesje's awesome blog. I know she will have something gorgeous to share!


Enjoy the rest of the hop and we hope to see you back at Stamp TV. We would also love if you would join us by making a fall themed shaker card!
