CSS Alumni Treasure Chest Blog Hop

Welcome blog friends, it's time for another blog hop with the StampTV CSS DT Alumni.  This time it's a Treasure Chest hop and the challenge this time is a Fall Theme Shaker Card! 
If you've come here from the fabulously talented Deb Felt's blog then you're in the right place, if not, then you're invited to take the entire hop from the beginning because you don't want to miss any of the great inspiration from this talented group.  BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE!  As you hop along, make sure to leave a comment on each blog because on Tuesday morning (September 27), we will randomly choose one of the comments from all the blogs and someone will get a stamp set of their choice valued up to $24.95! How cool is that?


Here is my fall shaker card

CS: Gina K Designs Pure Luxury "Sweet Mango" "White", "Spiced Pumpkin" and "Chocolate Kiss".  DP:  Basic Grey "Pyrus".  I used a punch to make the leaves for the shaker using up some scraps I had.  The scrolled corners were made using a Provo Craft die that came in a set of 4 - they're small dies. Stamps:  For the leaves "Autumn Splendor" Showtime StampTV Kit and for the sentiment I used "Autumn Beauty" by Theresa Momber.  Both of these sets are fabulous for fall projects and cards.  

Shaker cards are fun to create and fun to receive.  We'd love to have you play along with us and post your shaker card to the forum link so we can all enjoy your creation.  If you need some help making a shaker card, Gina K has a 2 part video that will help you.  SHAKER CARD PART 1 and SHAKER CARD PART 2  

Thank you for stopping by.  Don't forget to leave a comment on each blog as you hop - you just might win a GKD stamp set.  Now please continue hopping over to the lovely Carolina Buchting's blog for even more outstanding inspiration!  


Have a great weekend!
