To tide you over before the winners are announced, here are some 'amazing' cards inspired by the upcoming holidays.
Hi there! Rhonda here to bring you a fun little card that I created using the Club Q October kits.

I wanted to create a Thanksgiving/Fall themed card with the very elegant papers from the kit. To play a bit with the elegance of the papers, I include a bit of black tulle. I attached it with some staples, then melted the top ruffles just a bit with my heat embosser.

One of the small black laser cut frames was the perfect size to create my sentiment block. Once I adhered the paper from behind and it dried, I attached it to the base using foam dots.

Aren’t the patterns and swirls in this line just beautiful? I tore my itty bitty quote vellum, then inked the edges with Mango Mai Tai.

Non-Kit Ingredients:
  • Black Tulle
  • Foam Dimensionals
  • Epiphany Crafts Button Studio 14, 1 Button 14
  • White Thread
  • Tiny Attacher, Tim Holtz for Ranger
Oct Guest Designer

I decided to step outside the box and create some Holiday goodies!

JOY card - A mix of Savvy Davvy, Damsel in Distress, and Cherry Truffle come together for a card of more traditional colors. I cut one shadow and two snowflakes using my Cricut Expression and Winter Lace cartridge. I layered the snowflakes using foam tape adding more dimension to the card. To create the sentiment, I wrote the word out using a pencil then stitched over my pencil markings.

Other ingredients: Jenni Bowlin pin, DMC floss, Imaginsce bling, ribbon and lace unknown

The sleigh was formed using a mix of Savvy Davvy and Damsel in Distress. The pattern for the sleigh was found at The holly was cut using the Cricut Expression and Seasons Cartridge. Other ingredients: Making Memories brads; metal studs from Imaginsce, and ribbon unknown

Celebrate the Sesaon Card - A mix of papers from Savvy Davvy and Miss Morgan blend well together to create a holiday card of non-traditional colors. The tree was cut using Cricut Expression, gypsy, and Christmas cartridge.

Other ingredients: EKSuccess punches, Twine from The Twinery, and metal studs from Imaginesce, Ranger Stickles

All of these projects are gorgeous! Love the card, Rhonda, and Jodi, you have done an outstanding job as GDT this month! I was a little surprised when I popped over here from the Petaloo blog as I expected to see more designs using their beautiful flowers with the scrumptious QQ papers and quotes. It was a fabulous week with the two companies working together and I hate to see it end. I was amazed at how well the products work together yet each stands very well on it's own too. Can't wait to find out who the winners are tomorrow!
