First card with Quilling!

Hello!  Happy mid-week to you!  I've been learning Quilling and flowers seem to be the easiest thing for me to make so far.  :)  Over at Just Rite Inspiration blog, the current challenge uses some beautiful colors and I kind of wanted to join in, so here's what I made:

It's not nearly as elaborate as most of their cards, but I just love the colors and their sentiment stamps are just wonderful.

I tried three or four shots to get this close up and just can't seem to get one without any shadow anywhere, so this is the best one. 

Not too bad for a first shot at quilling, do you think?  Thanks for stopping by and I would love to know hear from you!  Have a wonderful rest of the week!

My Sheri Crafts Challenge #99

Happy  Saturday! Did you do a lot of Black Friday shopping?  Not me, I sent my list with my daughter! :)  Last year was the first time I had ever gone to Wal-Mart during the "Power Hours" and that was enough for me!  I hope you have had a wonderful Thanksgiving season with your family and friends.  We have another dinner yet and then it's full swing Christmas season!

Over at My Sheri Crafts we are celebrating that it " 'Tis The Season" and we have been asked to "Create a card/project that represents what you (or someone you know) celebrates during this time of year (Hanukkah,Christmas,Kwanzaa etc)  We celebrate Christmas at our house, honoring the birth of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.  Here is my card:
 The card base is an A2 size, cut from cardstock, edged with a Creative Memories Wavy Edge cutter.  I cut a matching piece from Hobby Lobby's 2010 Christmas paper.
 The ornament is from the Christmas cartridge, 4 layers.  I heat embossed it twice with clear embossing powder then added gold sparkly ribbon from Wal-Mart.
This label is a Spellbinders Lables die and the stamp is from Just Rite.  I used a gold paint pen around the edge of of the label.

The inside stamp is from Stampabilities. 

I really hope you will join us this week to share a  little bit about your celebration over at My Sheri Crafts .  Be sure to also check out the awesome creations from the rest of the team!  See you later!

Happy Harvest Tag Decor

Hello!  I'm so glad you stopped by today.  I have a decor project to share with you today.  I cut large tags from cereal boxes to create this little scene.

The tags cut is from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More and I think I cut them about 5 1/2"

 Most of the cuts are from Simply Scarecrows cartridge and the papers are all scraps.  Some of the cuts are from Stretch Your Imagination.

After it was completed, I sprayed Krylon Spray Glitter lightly over it for just a little sparkle.

I hope you enjoyed my little scene, I enjoyed sharing it with you!  Thanks so much for checking in with me today!

This project entered here:
Really Reasonable Ribbon - Anything but a card with ribbon
Love To Create - Fancy Edges
Stampin' Sisters In Christ - Something broken & put back together (scene on different tags)

My Sheri Crafts #98 Grateful card

Good afternoon and Happy Saturday!  Welcome to challenge at My Sheri Crafts!  This week we are preparing for Thanksgiving...can you believe it's here already?!?  Join us with your project showing thanks.  Here's mine:

 The border punch and the gems are from Martha Stewart.  All papers are scraps, except the card base.  The ribbon is brown sheer from Celebrate It.  I've weaved it into the border punch also. 

This sentiment stamp is one of my favorite Studio G stamps.  I think it's so elegant!  The tag was a cut I found in my stash.  I think it was from Storybook cartridge.  The yellow layer is a Paper Lace cut, turned diagonally.

 I ran the yellow intricate cut through my sticker maker and there was a lot of adhesive showing around the edges.  Instead of using the gum eraser to take off all of it in all those small cut outs, I just sprinkled some copper glitter over it to add a little sparkle the easy way!
The inside cut is preloaded on the Imagine.  I used Tim Holz distress inks in Antique Linen and Rusty Hinge on both the inside cut and the sentiment tag. 

Thanks for stopping by and please be sure to check out all the great inspiration from my Design Team sisters!  They have created some things that will surely get your Mojo going!  Join us with your Thankful creations and maybe you will receive an Ooh-La-La award or be our next Guest Designer!  Have fun!
