My Craft Spot Sneak Peek - Happy Fall

Hello Everyone!  Are you enjoying our week long Stamp Release Party at My Craft Spot!  If you haven't had the chance to check it out, make sure you stop by!  The My Craft Spot Design Team has been sharing some amazing inspiration and there are so many ways to win some fun goodies!  I am so excited to be giving you a little Sneak Peek of another one of the new sets, "Happy Fall"!   Fall is my favorite season of the year and I am fortunate to live in an area where the fall foliage is gorgeous!  The weather is perfect in the Fall, the colors are beautiful and it leads into the most magical time of the year!  I was jumping up and down when I first saw this stamp set!  I LOVE it and I know you will too!!  Here is my sneak peek for today!

I made a Fall shaker card!  This card looks even better in person.  I have to admit that I spent more time trying to get a decent picture of this than I spent making the card!  It is so hard to capture without a glare! 


I stamped this cute sentiment behind the shaker container so when you shake it, the leaves fall all around it!  The background paper is the back side of the double sided Bo Bunny paper and the shaker container is the packaging from a Bo Bunny Buttons & Bling pack!
I added not one, but two Crinkle Ribbon Bows to capture the effect of the changing of the leaves! 

I'll keep this short today but again, if you haven't seen the rest of the DT sneak peeks, make sure you stop by My Craft Spot and check them out!  
Friday is our last day for the Stamp Release Party!  We are ending with a fun Blog Hop and each stop on the Hop will be giving away one of the new stamp sets! (That is 9 stamp sets - Woohoo!)  There are so many ways to win this week so make sure you stop by My Craft Spot!  Thanks for stopping by today!!

Amber, this card is gorgeous! I love the colors and the shaker effect. I love making shaker cards! I thought it was one of those SU shaker/window pieces you can get, but when I read you reused something, I LOVED it! I am always having to improvise and reuse things too! Thanks for the inspiration. =)

Happy to be a new follower!

hugs,
Michelle
