Make it Mini - Archiver's class

I attended a new class at Archiver's today - Make it Mini.  Darling little 3x3 cards that come in handy for many occasions.  Actually quilled for the first time!!  Wasn't too bad but it's not something I'll be taking up as a craft.  As usual, we used lots of different stamps from various companies but I was glad to see a few from Hero Arts.  Here are my versions of the 9 cards we made - three at a time:

On the left - the tree stamp has a circle stamp on the end so you can get a perfect circle for your "leaves".  Center one has the quilling, otherwise it came together quickly.  Love the pinwheel on the right and what a yummy big pearl in the center!

Center one is colored with Copics and on the inside there's one of those honeycomb details - cute.   The Yippee on the Micky Mouse card was supposed to be stamped in VersaMark and embossed in yellow - oops I didn't read directions!!

Left and center have some (not all) Hero Arts stamps; one on the right has Tim Holtz.  Love the little bee with Stickles on the left.  The Hero Arts bicycle is stamped on a 1" circle with some Tim Holtz writing for texture, then set into a bottle cap - very fun!  Love the gears on the right - stamped on acetate and then colored on the back using gold and silver Ranger daubers.  All these in a 2 1/2 hr class, cleaning up as we went along.  Thanks to Megan for a fun class!
