StampTV CSS DT Inspiration Challenge Blog Hop

Welcome! 
 
Here we are with another StampTV CSS DT blog hop and this one is an inspiration challenge.  If you've come here from the very talented Brenda's blog, you're in the right place.  If you didn't, you may want to see the entire hop and all the inspiration from the beginning
 
Isn't this image Geri found sensational?  We invite you to play along with us and create your own card using the image as your inspiration.  
 
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!
 
 
 
Here's what I created - I was drawn to all the texture and the glorious colors of this entry way.  Great image, Geri. 

The technique I used for the bg is called "Embossing Puzzle" and it can be found in the latest Technique Junkie's Newsletter.  The stamp set "Heartfelt" is by Theresa Momber.  CS is GKD Pure Luxury "kraft", "Chocolate Kiss" and white.   Copics were used to color the pumpkins.  Spellbinder M-bossibilities and Labels Eighteen.  Leaf punch and Memory Box vine die. 

Now, hop on over to the super talened Geri's blog  and check out her stunning creation. 

Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy the hop!
