It's time for our RRR Blog Hop today

It's time for our November blog hop on RRR today and we have
lots of gorgeous things to share with all of you.  For today's hop it's
anything goes so i decided to share a really cute Christmas banner
with all of you that i did to decorate for this years holiday.

So if you started at the beginning of the hop you
should have arrived here from Heather's blog

For my banner i used papers from Teresa Collins and the tag set
that she made to go with it.  The believe comes in the set and all
i had to do was create the banner pieces for each of the letters.
 I used green, red, grey and white and added doilies that i
purchased and then lots of ribbon to tie at the top and string through it.
I even added tiny gold bells on the ribbons to make it jingle!!
I am not sure where i am going to put it but i like the way it came out.

Now it's time to hop to our next designer on the list
who is the amazing and talented Jenn.....

Thank you so much for stopping over... Teresa

RRR Winter Challenge is up today

We have a really fun winter challenge up on the RRR blog today and all of
our Design Team really made some amazing things to share with all of you.

And for me-- well I went with my favorite snowflake die from Spellbinders
and added lots of other embossed things to give it lots of dimension.

I just used white card stock and added 2 shades of blue to make
the design pop more and then added my favorite seam binding ribbon
in a pretty bow on the side to finish it off.  Oh and i had to add lots
of crystals to make it glisten too.  That is my favorite part!

Thanks for stopping over and don't forget to join in our challenge
for a chance to win some of these gorgeous ribbons...

Hugs and Smiles...Teresa

It's feeling like fall today...

Today the weather is finally cool and even though it's Halloween
today we have a chance of rain and it's good because we really
need it here in So Cal.  Today i have some fall projects that i
did a while back and thought i would share them with you.

The papers and tags are from a really cute collection from
Cosmo Cricket.  I love the rich fall colors of this set and i found
the cutest little owl to decorate the tags and the clear pillow
box that i found.  It's really fun and easy to do with
all the little banners and leaves on things.  The belly band
on the box is from Spellbinders of course and is one of my fav's.

 For this card i just layered lots of pretty pieces of 
paper and then added some adhesive letters for a
title and the jute ribbon at the bottom for the bike
to sit on.  The bike is a die from Spellbinders and
I think it looks great cut/embossed in ivory cardstock.

For my last card today i used the same Cosmo Cricket 
paper set and embossed a piece of kraft paper 
with a wood folder and then inked it up a little. 
Then i tore some paper to put at the top and made
this cute cluster of leaves from one of my favorite
leaf dies from Spellbinders.  And i added a few more
of those cute little owls and a tiny title at the bottom.

 I hope you like all the things i have to share today and
be sure and check back for more this month for fall ideas.

Have a really wonderful week,  Teresa

New Graphic 45 Halloween

 I love all the new papers in the new Graphic 45 Eerie Tale set this
 season. The colors are so pretty and the prints and tags and such are 
really fun to work with.  Today i have a card and some mini treat bags 
that i made up to be ready for this year and a few other goodies i had.

To make my card i used one of the tags in the set and cut it out
and layered it with some of the spider web paper and some orange,
black and cardboard that i rolled and sanded a bit.  The ribbons
are from Really Reasonable Ribbon Halloween set and it all
matched so good with the papers and really made my projects pop.

The mini bags i picked up at Hobby Lobby and the tags are also
from the G45 Halloween tags paper.  I just glued on some matching
papers to the fronts of each of the bags and then added these 
funny little adhesive embellishments and then splattered it all with a 
paintbrush diluted with water and black paint.  Really fun :)

Here is a couple of shots of just the bags so that
you can see the tags and stuff on them.  Arent' they cute?

That's it for today, sorry it's short... i am so very busy with 
classes up at the Yap and other fun DT assignments so hope you
all have a really great day!!   Teresa

New Quietfire Sentiments

There are lots of new Quietfire Sentiment stamps out this month
and i used one of new Just for You sentiments on my card to share today.

To make this..I started with a white card for this one and ran it through
 with an embossing folder to get the edges.  Then I inked it a little with
some TH distress inks in tattered rose and worn lipstick.  And then I took
a crafters' workshop 6x6 stencil called Mini gathered flowers and 
pushed a little bit of white gesso through it with a palette knife.

I let it dry really good and then sprinkled some of my favorite colored
embossing powders over the top from Stampendous and heated it all
up to make it all shiny and glisten.  Then i just stamped the sentiment
in black and cut it out with a Spellbinders oval die to put at the top.

This was a really fun card to make and perfect to send out to someone 
special. Thanks for stopping over and be sure and check out the new 
stamps from Quietfire and all the neat things from Stampendous too.
