Today the GKD Design Team are blog hopping with inspiration from our newest stamp release. First up is a set I illustrated, called Country Roads. I was in the mood for a little mixed media, so I created this card using wood veneer paper, layered with a small piece of Pure Luxury Chocolate Brown, cut with Spellbinders™Fancy Lattice. I threaded some raffia in wire mesh ribbon and tied it off with a bow, before adhering in the corner. The focal layer is Pure Luxury Ivory, cut with Spellbinders Labels 26 and sponged with Memento Peanut Brittle and Rich Cocoa inks. All the images are from Country Roads and that beautiful autumn pattern paper is from the new Sun Kissed Autumn patterned paper pack.
Basket Additions 3. There are some really fun images in this set that will be perfect for so many occasions. I'm crazy for the fun Halloween ghoulish friends. Melanie designed this set to go with her basket sets, making them so versatile and expanding all the wonderful ways to use those sets. I wanted to show you that you can use the images on their own, too. On this card, I stamped the Halloween image twice to make a fun, spooky border. I think this would make a great border scrapbooking Halloween photos.
Using the same image, I created another look, this time separating the images into their own frames. I have some coloring photos below, but first, be sure to check out the following designer links for more inspiration...

I cut circles using Spellbinders Standard Circles, layering with Pure Luxury White and Black Onyx. The sentiment was stamped on white and layered with Pure Luxury Vibrant Purple. The 5 ½ by 4 ¼ inches is Pure Luxury Lovely Lavender. I embossed a frame using the second largest of the Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics B and added some bling.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful day!
