Welcome to the 8th stop on the inaugural blog hop of the SU STARS! I am delighted to participate in this hop and be a member of this group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators who "love what we do and share what we love" with each other. If you are hopping along in order, you arrived here from Carolyn Sharkas' blog. A list of all blogs participating on the hop this weekend can be found on the SU STARS blog.

My project features the Autumn Harvest stamp set. Card stock colors used were Crumb Cake, Cajun Craze, Early Espresso for the card base, Pumpkin Pie for the pumpkins, Old Olive and More Mustard for the leaves. The Crumb Cake piece was cut with the Top Note die, embossed with the Square Lattice embossing folder, and spritzed with the Log Cabin Smooch Spritz. The stamped images were embossed, cut out, and Stampin' Pastels were used to shade the More Mustard leaf. The Jack-o-lantern was adhered to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals and the remaining cut out images were adhered with glue dots. The sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes was stamped on a scrap of Crumb Cake card stock, punched with the large oval punch and mounted on More Mustard card stock punched with the scalloped oval punch. A few pieces of raffia tied around the Top Note die cut finish the card.

Your next stop is Diane Clark-Sutton's blog. Enjoy!
