Hi there! Welcome to Gina K. Designs  August CSS Alumni Blog Hop. You should have arrived here from super talented Cheri  can't wait to see what gorgeousness she came up  with.This month is an inspiration challenge. I found this photo a few months ago and thought it would be a great fall inspiration photo.

For my first card I used Melanie's "Basket Additions"  and the basket is from her "Holiday Basket" both by Gina K. Designs. The card stock is GKD and I colored most of the images with Copic's and colored pencils on the pumpkins.

For my next card I was so inspired by the door! I made the door using spellbinder's long rectangle's. Using the largest and the smallest for the panels. I had so many idea's for decorating a door, I may have make more!! The sunflower's are from Theresa's "Autumn Beauty" and "pumpkins from "Heartfelt" by Gina K. Designs. The card stock for the door is GKD (Wine with Everything).

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! Good luck! Your next stop is the incredibly talented Joy

A Few Challenges

Hi there! I have a couple of cards I want to share. I was ask to host the Monday Mix Up Challenge over at Stamp TV. So make it Wild! Yep that's my challenge, it just started so there is time to join in the challenge if you want and get a chance to win a grab bag of stamps from Gina K. Designs.
So the challenge is to make it wild , that can be Wild flowers, wild animals, wildlife, wild colors or even a sentiment using the word wild. Sound like fun?
The stamps I used here in this card is Theresa's "Mountain Wilderness" and the sentiment is from her "Wild About You" both are Gina K. Stamps.
 Theresa has some great tutorials on using this awesome stamp set on her blog here.

My card here is all about Poppy's the image is from Melanie's "Stately Flower's1" set, the first one in a series of four. This is also from Gina K. Designs.
The Poppy image was stamped twice and colored with Copic's . I cut out the blooms and added them to the image giving it a four bloom image. I love to try new looks and like how this turned out. These flower images are gorgeous and easy to color.

I also entered them in Outlawz greeting card challenge "Anything Goes".
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
