Inspiration Challenge CSST 9-10-2013

Look st this beautiful Inspiration that Cheri has for us this time!  Lovely Fall colors, to move us away from the hot Summer that so many have suffered through! There are so many colors from StampTV that can make your card a gorgeous creation!   If you have arrived from  Joy's blog, you are in the right place. Below this inspiration picture, you will find the card that I came up with!








Here is the card I came up with using all these Fall colors. Doesn't this make you yearn for cooler weather?  I used The Harvest of Wishes stamp set, and all cardstock is from StampTV too.  I added some ribbons and a button along with the sentiment.  The sunflower was stamped on colored CS and cut out and popped up with pop dots!


Here is a second card that I made that uses the neutrals and only a very little bit of the orange, in the flower center.  I stamped and heat embossed with Gold EP using the Summer Blooms set, from the StampTV Kit!  The sentiment is from the A Wish for You set from another StampTV Kit. I stamped with Gina's new ink also!  So happy with her ink! I coordinated everything by using StampTV buttons and ribbon!  Now, you can hop over to  Kay's blog http://livinlifeinthecreativelane.blogspot.com/2013/09/september-inspiration-hop.html  and check out what she's got for you to see.

Great cards - I love the neutral one with the pop of color in the center!

Cheri said...

These are two lovely cards, Karen. I love that touch of feather on your first card. Neat embellishment.

Jan said...

Both cards are lovely.

I really like how you cut out the flower, it made it look so real and the second card is really cool. It's like a black and white photo and one thing has color to make it pop. I think you could be a man card.

Both of your cards are just beautiful. I think that I am partial to the whimsical sunflower.

Both cards are beautiful! Love how you captured the complexity of the inspiration photo in the 1st card and the simplicity of the photo in the 2nd card. Not sure how you managed that but great job!

I know you digressed a bit on your second card, but it's the one that caught my eye. Love the orange on the flower's center--loved the colors. Both cards are lovely.

Nice cards

Kay S said...

Both of these are really pretty, Karen, but I especially like the second one with the neutrals. Something about it really catches my eye - maybe because it is so soft looking
