Day 2, Inspiration Hop: Rustic Autumn and Something Good in Every Day

Good morning, and welcome back to another inspiration hop! Today we are showcasing the Rustic Autumn and Something Good in Every Day  sets. We are giving away a $50 gift certificate again today to the Gina K. Designs store, so we hope you will leave comments along the way through, each and every comment is a chance to win!  Check the StampTV forum where winners will be announced a few days after the hops. Good luck! 


First up, Rustic Autumn! I stamped this lovely barn in Dark Chocolate onto white cardstock, and then dragged the Sandy Beach pad downward all across it several times to create the wood grain! Even in real life, it tricks me, looks so real! I mounted it on Black cardstock and added some Jet Black Nuvo Drops because I'm out of all my masculine looking little brads! The background mat is made from stamping the new Elegant Script in Dark Chocolate on White, and then sponging and and adding a few of the gorgeous line art and bold leaves in the set.  Greeting is Jet Black Amalgam, and base is Pure Luxury Sandy Beach.


For this card, I tore a piece of scratch paper to mask off a section for the greeting and sponged with Prickly Pear. After removing, I worked my way up so that it would fade out into the distance like a field. I stamped the greeting and trees in Jet Black Amalgam, and then added the leaves in Prickly Pear. I love one tree sending leaves to the other with this sentiment!


Next up, Lisa Hetrick's Something Good in Every Day! I showed one card with the wood yesterday, and today I'm sharing a simple Christmas design. I stamped this gorgeous slice of wood in GKD Sandy Beach on Pure Luxury White and then mounted in on the coordinating Sandy Beach cardstock. The branch is stamped and stamped off in Fresh Asparagus.  The berries and cool offset rectangle frame are stamped in GKD Red Velvet. This looks like a perfect modern country Christmas design so I chose a greeting from Gina's Fruit of the Season kit  (stamped in Jet Black Amalgam).

Let's see more from the rest of our team!
