CSS Inspiration Blog Hop - 9-10-2013

Welcome to another Blog Hop based on this really pretty inspiration picture that Joy found for us. This certainly makes me long for Fall. I have a long wait though living in Florida!  You should have arrived from Linda Payne where I am sure you saw some wonderful eye candy!


I made 2 cards for this hop, I think they are very different and they were both fun to do. The first one I am showcasing just has a simple pumpkin from the Fanciful Fall stamp set. I had that ribbon and it was just begging to be used on this card. I used some GKD Ivory and Sweet Mango card stock and some Copics to color. 


This is the inspiration photo that was used - isn't cool how I had some fake acorns to show off the cards?


The second card I played around with for a while. I love the wheelbarrow and placing the scrumptious fall items in was just the ticket. The patterned paper is GKD Sundance used on Ivory. The stamps are Beyond Baskets and Basket Additions. I added some black brads to it and a few sparkly gems. 


Now you have to hop on over to check out what Tera Fujan has created for us to see.  

Thanks for the visit!

What gorgeous ribbon on the first one with the beautifully colored pumpkin and I like the way you have cut out the produce in the wheel barrow for dimension.

Love, love, love the ribbon treatment, Miesje. And the wheelbarrow is colored beautifully and the punched edge is a fantastic detail. Fabulous cards!

the ribbon is so pretty, and I have been going back and forth in getting the basket stamps, now I have to start getting them love how you used the wheel barrel.

Both of your cards are different but they are also both beautiful. The ribbon on the first one is gorgeous and is just perfect with the pumpkin.

I love fussy cutting so the pumpkin on the first card stands out for me! And the wheelbarrow card is just so neat with all the goodies in it. And the acorns for the photos is just too cool!
