One GRAND PRIZE WINNER will be announced on the 17th of the month.  One of the Designers is our Mystery Host and the winner will be selected from comments left on her blog.  You must leave a comment on each of the Designers' blogs in order to be selected as the winner, as you never know who the Mystery Host will be.  This is checked for compliance.

And now a bit about my card. Then I saw the Basket of Hope Stamp Set, I knew I have to have this. I love realistic looking stamps and I have waited a long time to make an Autumn card with inlay die cut leaf background. Basket of Hope was perfect for this.

I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Promarkers. It's cut out with craft knife and scissors. I covered berries and jar with Nuvo Jewel Drops (Orange Marmalade for jar and Strawberry Coulis on berries). For the matting layer I adhered 2 1/2" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape to piece of cardstock and used die from Nellie Snellen Photo Frames set to cut it out. After adhering image layer to center I covered rest of the tape with Bronze Splendor Glitter. 

For the background I took a piece of White cardstock and inked it with Distress Inks (Old Paper, Fossilized Amber and Tea Dye). Some droplets of water was also sprinkled on top of the inking. 
I used Creative Expressions Autumn Leaf Trio die set to cut six shaped windows to it. In this set has three detailed and three matching silhouette dies, so I used them all to cut all the windows in one pass. 

I inked the edges of one of previously cut silhouette leaf with Tea Dye ink and used Versamark ink to stamp the sentiment to the center. It's heat embossed with White Detail Embossing Powder.

Piece of Acetate was adhered underneath the inked layer. On top of the windows I die cutted two sets of detailed leaves and adhered them to the Acetate. Some veins was drawn with yellow marker to the back side of the Acetate. You can barely see the color but it gives nice effect.
Most bottom layer is covered with 2 1/2" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape. To the edges I applied  Bronze Splendor Glitter and rest of the tape was covered with Microfine Glitter. Inked panel is adhered on top of it with Foam Tape.

Frame is cut with paper trimmer. Some Orange Marmalade Nuvo Jewel Drops was added to finish off my card.

My blog was last stop on the SNS Blog Hop. But if started from the middle You should go to Shona's blog to follow the full Hop :) I hope you enjoy(ed) it!
