CSS - Inspiration Blog Hop - 8/24/2012


It is another StampTV blog hop; an inspiration blog hop - usually difficult for me but this one just came together. I love the picture, a change in seasons is coming and I love the Fall colors.
You should have arrived from the fabulous blog of Melissa Cash with what I am sure was a wonderful project! 

I made a quick card this time. It has been a very busy time for me with back to school here. The first few weeks of school are always very hectic with lesson planning and new students to get to know. When I saw the inspiration picture I was instantly drawn to the deep color of the door and the yellows and greens with it. So I used the Floral Wreath stamp set from Gina. I colored the flowers with my Copics and fussy cut the wreath. I popped up the wreath and the circle in the middle with the sentiment. I added the variegated ribbon. The back panel is pure luxury Cranberry Crisp which I ran through the Cuttlebug. Simple card that turned out well.
Now hop on over to visit Tera Fujan, for some more fabulous eye candy. If you want to start at the beginning or get lost along the way, just jump directly to the links for all of the wonderful creations on StampTV.

Make sure to leave a comment as you hop along because on Tuesday morning (August 28), we will randomly choose one of the comments from all the blogs and that person will receive a huge grab bag of fabulous Gina K. Designs Stamps!

Thanks for stopping by!
