August Blog Hop with Sean and Regina


WELCOME TO THE AUGUST BLOG HOP!

Hi everyone!  Thanks for playing along in our August blog hop!  The Blog Hop with Sean & Regina is featuring cards and sentiments celebrating the fall season this month! After a very hot and humid July, most of us are looking forward to a cool and colorful fall! When we think of fall, our minds swirl like we are surrounded by falling leaves and a crisp cool breeze in the air. Each host/hostess will have a card creation posted that is his/her representation of what fall means to them.



Scrapbook Stamp Society is our blog hop sponsor!  The overall winner will receive digi’s from our sponsor.  Please visit them at http://scrapbookstampsociety.com/index.php?

Also some of our blog hop host/hostess designers will be offering blog candy as prizes on their blog sites, so please do not forget to visit his/her blog (and leave a comment) to be eligible for bonus blog hop prizes!

Here is my fall card. I love fall, mostly because of the beautiful colors. I love seeing the gorgeous fall leaves and the pumpkins that start showing up everywhere. So, I had to incorporate both into my card.


My card is made using Gina K Designs Pure Luxury brand new Tomato Soup card stock as the base. (Love this new color!). The a layer of Pure Luxury Dusty Sage. The strip on the left side is PL Honey Mustard with a piece of patterned paper from the new Gina K Designs Sun-kissed Autumn patterned paper pack. I used stamps from the new Gina K Designs set by Theresa Momber called Country Roads and from her set called Autumn Beauty stamped on PL Ivory paper. Inks used were Memento Espresso Truffle,Toffee Crunch and Summer Sky. I colored the trees, grass and pumpkins with Copics. The ribbon and the nail heads are from Gina K Designs also.  I hope my card inspires you to think of your favorite fall things.

Now it is your turn to blog hop with all of our friends!  The rules are simple:

Leave a comment on Regina’s blog first (and become a follower to enter a chance to win the grand prize from Scrapbook Stamp Society)!  :) 

Go down the list of blogs visiting all of them (see below).  Leave comments on their blog pages to be eligible for bonus blog candy from select blog hosts. The blog hop host/hostee offering bonus blog candy will indicate that he/she has a bonus blog candy prize so read their blog post carefully.  Each blog will have the name and blog address for the next host/hostess in line for the blog hop.  

At the end of the hop, a random winner will be chosen for the Blog Hop prize from our sponsor and select blog hop hosts for Bonus Blog Candy.  The deadline for leaving comments is Monday, August 20, 2012 at 8pm CST.   Winners of the Grand Prize and bonus Blog Candy will be announced Tuesday, August 21, 2012
