StampTV CSS Alumni Blog Hop

My very first CSS blog hop! I certainly hope that I did this all correctly! If I did do it right then you arrived here from Melissa Shultz blog. This blog hop is a color challenge and the colors are a wonderful fall preview! I really am in the mood for fall! 

I made this card using the newest StampTV kit from GinaK called Autumn Splendor. I love this set and all the wonderful possibilities for great projects. I used 3 stamps from this set on this one card. I colored the bucket of apples with Copics trying to follow the instructions that Gina posted on her StampTV Copic Coloring video tutorial this week. I love how that turned out! Then I cut it out and put it aside. The base of the card is Pure Luxury Sweet Mango and the Pure Luxury Chocolate panel was run through the Cuttlebug. 


I really love how the smaller background turned out! I used 3 distress inks (Wild Honey, Walnut Stain, and Fired Brick) to sponge the on Pure Luxury Vanilla background with some color. Then I used the script stamp on Brown Memento ink and stamped off once before stamping the panel. I popped up the bucket with apples and added a little tag with the many thanks sentiment. I finished the card off with some dark red ribbon and 3 red dew drops.

Now on to your next stop for this touch of Fall is Shannon Hawkins (the newlywed!) Enjoy the last few hops and don't forget - if you get lost or just want to start over head on home to Stamp TV

I hope you all had fun! Thanks for stopping by,
