Enjoy the gorgeous inspiration samples from the team and then comment on each blog for your chance to win a $50 Gina K Designs gift certificate! To see who won, check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hop. Ready for some inspiration? Here are a few of the projects I have created for today’s hop:

I whipped this one up this morning for our Friday Funday at Stamp TV in our StampTV Kit Addicts forum!  You can see how I created this card with step out photos here, but finish the hop first!) Remember, a leaf can *always* be a petal and vice versa! Cardstock is GKD Pure Luxury White and Wild Dandelion and ink is GKD Black Onyx, Tomato Soup, Red Velvet and Fresh Asparagus. Because this kit comes with the beautiful dies, you could also die cut all the petals leaves and that thankful instead of stamping, would be super pretty!


On this card I two step stamped the leaves in GKD Grass Green, Tomato Soup and Wild dandelion, for the bold layers, and Charcoal Brown for the top stitched layer.  Love how solid and detailed these look, almost like I die cut colored cardstock (you can, I just didn't) The word dies that coordinate with the stamp sets in this kit are so gorgeous! I stamped one on white and popped it up over the images then layered on to a heavy white card base.
For this next card, I used Tomato Soup again, but Honey Mustard and Fresh Asparagus this time for the other leaves.  I just love these fall-ish colors from Gina K. year round, and I adore making fall designs!  The curling stitch image is wonderful and you can use them for creating movement on your cards for the falling leaves for build them up in areas  or borders like the cardstock has been embroidered or quilted. Love it!

Your cards are fabulous, as always. Love all the wonderful ideas - especially making the flower out of the leaves. You've really exemplified the saying from A Year of Leaves - "Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower" LOL. Thanks for the great inspiration.
