Stamp TV CSS August Hop

Hello, and welcome to the August CSS blog hop! If you came here from Joy's blog you are on the right track, but if you didn't and would like to start the hop at the beginning, please jump back over to Stamp TV for the full list of participants.

Today's hop is an inspiration hop based on this beautiful photo that Geri provided for us. I love the colors and the fall theme. I wish someone would come and decorate my front porch like this!

Here is the card I was inspired to make. I don't always get quite a literal with my card, but this time I couldn't help but pull out this door stamp from the Gina K Designs set "The Journey" by Asela Hopkins. It just fit so perfectly with this inspiration photo that I had to use it.


Card materials:
Cardstock: Gina K Designs Pure Luxury Cranberry Tart, Soft Sage, Ivory
Stamps: Gina K Designs: The Journey by Asela Hopkins; Autumn Beauty and Country Roads by Theresa Momber
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Toffee Crunch and Espresso Truffle; Copic markers; Distress Ink Summer Sky
Other: Flower Soft - Autumn
(All Gina K Designs items are available here.)

I hope you enjoyed seeing my little fall scene and are inspired by the inspiration photo to make your fall cards. Now hop along to Linda's blog to see the gorgeous creation she has waiting for you. But, before you go be sure to add a comment here and at all the other blogs 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!
