This week, the Shabby Tea Room challenges us..."What are you thankful for?" (week 36)...to create a design showing something that we are thankful for, with inspiration drawn from a photo of some delicious cupcakes...yummy!
This project was made up just for a friend from my stamping group that has been undergoing some difficult health issues and surgery. Our group is meeting tonight for dinner to celebrate her success thus far. I wanted to make a little something for her, something that exudes my joy and thankfulnes for her...as well as the upcoming Christmas season. So, it's not Thanksgiving, or match the photo per se...but does have a lot of "frosting!"
Have you ever seen Kelly Lunceford's (atomicbutterfly) beautiful banners? I have always wanted to attempt one, so decided this is the time!
I began creating my banner with the Stamp Simply Glad Tidings Ornament Kit, from the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store. The kit includes fiber board KaiserCraft ornament shapes...perfect for covering with decorator paper. It also features the beautiful K and Company Glad Tidings 12" X 12" paper pad.
These items may also be purchased separately.
I did add a few items not included in the kit: chipboard letters, gold cording, gold chunky glitter, and a sticker from the Glad Tidings Dimensional Sticker pack.
I just love these accordian flowers. They're so easy to make, yet add such a special dimensional touch! Kelly has a great tutorial on her blog found HERE.
Thanks so very much Kelly, for the inspiration that you provide to so many of us!
ETA: This is a sizable banner...each panel measures 6" X 9"...making it very substantial...
After checking out Kelly's blog for inspiration, make sure that you do the same at the Shabby Tea Room site...the entries always make for beautiful viewing!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
