Gina K. Designs September Release Inspiration Blog Hop, Day 2!!

Hey Y'all!  Glad to see you!  :D

Welcome to the 2nd day of this month's blog hop!  Super excited to share these sets this time...LOVE this time of year!  Today we have two more sets to showcase for you, hopefully make you wanna get all creative with them too!  :D  And as always, be sure to leave a comment on all the blogs, which if you comment on each one, it betters your chance of winning! ;)  We will be giving away a $50 gift certificate for each day, THREE of them! yay! Ok, enough yadayada from me!  On to the good stuff!

Up first today we have Theresa Momber's set, Rustic Autumn

LOVE that barn!  And actually, the shape of it is how my grand parents barn was!  So it REALLY brought back memories!  Milk cow kicking me on my leg, horse biting my butt...lmbo!  But it was such sweet awesome memories!  Here is what I have done with this set:

I was going for a 'postcard' feel to it.  I stamped the barn, then after coloring i cut the sides and top of the image out.  (if the blue sky wasnt in the background you would see the inside of the card)  I then created a sky panel to go behind the barn image with the stamped trees from the set.  I can almost smell the Autumn air!  ha!  And then I did a bit of paper piecing on them pumpkins:

This is a CAS on my beloved kraft cardstock!  I hand drew that frame and then masked off before stamping the tree.  Tied a bit of twine in a bow and stick it to it with that awesome Connect Glue and was done!  Seriously, its HARD for me to do a CAS card so I kinda like this one!  :D Oh and i did ONE more, haha...

Couldnt resist those little sunflowers!  I also used the Elegant Script background stamp on this too (OMG loving our new background stamps!!)  This card just screams HAPPY to me!

Ok, up next is Lisa Hetrick's set, Something Good in Everyday
Look at all of the fun  elements in this set!  I love sets like this, when you have so many ways it can be used...makes your purchase even better!  :D  Here is what I have done for today with this set:

I had intended for this card to be one using that new Alcohol Lift Ink, but it failed, lol!  SOoooo I saved it by just smearing and blending colors around, LOL!  The flower is stamped on Tranquil Teal cardstock in white and then heat embossed with white also, as is the sentiment on vellum.  I wish I had of added a bit of distressing on the image panel though, I think that would have added to it, lol!  ahhh well, we are our worse critics, right?  :D  Ok, I have one more with this set:

I stamped the tree ring and cut it out and then just layered some of the leaves and the flower and the sentiment all haphazardly on it.  I dug up and old, OLD corner punch and used it and seems to kinda fit with this card I think!  Ok, ready for some awesome eye candy?  ME TOO!  I always love seeing what my fellow DT make, it truly inspires me too!  Here are  the links...dont forget to comment!

 Thanks so very much for the sweet comments and compliments yesterday!  I truly love reading them and seeing them all!  Come on back tomorrow for another day of inspiration for you!  It's the new StampTV kit! woohooo!
