Blogging Friends Blog Hop
Photo Inspiration


Hi Everyone,
Welcome to the September Blogging Friends Blog Hop. We are a group of Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from all over the United States and maybe even crossing the borders. This month our blog is all about inspiration from a photo. You know that September brings the back to school time as well as the kick off to fall. It is my favorite time of year, so when I saw our inspiration photo, I was excited. 

This photo is so beautiful! It is stunning with the rich fall colors. This gives so much inspiration for stamping. I can't wait for you to see my projects and hop over to the other Blogging Friends' posts.


The rich colors in the photo reminded me of some of my favorite fall colors in Stampin' Up! colors. My project uses Cajun Craze and Crushed Curry inks. The paper is Cajun Craze and Crumb Cake. The Gallery Grunge Stamp set really adds great texture to this project. The leaves are from the Rooted in Nature Stamp set.


The gold Metallic Pearls add a special touch as well for this card. The saying comes out of the Another Wonderful Year Stamp set. 


This project I decided to continue a leaf theme with the Nature's Poem Designer Series Paper (DSP). The colors in this paper matches the colors from my first project. The Cajun Craze leaves are so nice. For this card I also used Mint Macaron Nature's Twine and ink. The base of my project is Soft Suede. Notice the vellum leaves? These came out of the most recent Paper Pumpkin kit.
