Once again it is time for another blog hop featuring Stamp TV Center Stage Spotlight Design Team Alumni. I am hoping you arrived here from the blog of the super talented Karen Knegten. I'm sure you were awed by the gorgeous creation she shared tonight!
Since you came from Karen's blog you probably already know that our "challenge" for tonight's blog hop was to create our cards using fall colors since that beautiful season is fast approaching! The colors for tonight are Orange, Red, Brown, and ONE Neutral Color from the following: White or Ivory. I chose to use Gina K Designs Pure Luxury cardstock in Pumpkin Spice (I love that color!), Cranberry Tart, Chocolate Brown, and Ivory. I had a piece of designer paper in my hand to use on this card but decided that I would go more simple and just use the beautiful colors so here is the result.
The images are from the beautiful fall stamp set by Rupa Shevde for Gina K Designs called So Grateful. I colored the images with Copics and sponged around them with Distress Ink in Rusty Hinge. The sentiment is also from that set. The piece of Pumpkin Spice cardstock is embossed with the Sizzix embossing folder from Stampin' Up called Square Lattice. The cool Jute Ribbon is from Gina K Designs -- isn't it just perfect for a fall card?
I'm really enjoying making cards with fall stamps and colors as the first hints of autumn are beginning to appear here in Wisconsin. I think the fall colors are among my favorites to work with when I'm making cards; how about you? While you are thinking about that, hop on over to the blog of Melissa Cash called Inklinations -- isn't that a clever name?! I'm sure she has something beautiful wating for you!
Thanks for stopping by tonight! Don't forget to visit StampTV when you are done hopping to see what other great inspiration you can find.
