SHOPPING OUR STASH #388 - Ode to Jessi

Hello crafty friends and welcome!
This fortnight at SHOPPING OUR STASH, we are
paying tribute to one of our own teammates, Jessi Fogan,
who lost her long battle with gastroparesis in December.

For this challenge, we'd like for you to visit Jessi's blog, and make
a project inspired by something Jessi made. Please do include a link
back to her blog so that we can see the project that inspired you.

As you may know, Jessi was such a creative soul, and she loved incorporating
different forms of art in her projects. One of them was quilling. She made
the most amazing quilled projects! For my card, I was inspired by
this gorgeous card she made. I did my utmost best to case it as close as I could.
From the smooshed panel, the quilled flowers, to the hand dyed ribbon and 
beaded pins.

Here's another angle:

I hope that you'll join us in honoring Jessi's memory by creating
something of hers that inspires you, and link up at Shopping Our Stash.
Also, with this challenge, we are changing from a weekly format
to every two weeks, so as to give you more time to play along.
We look forward to seeing what you create in our gallery.
Please be sure to visit my teammies to see all their gorgeous
creations inspired by Jessi!
Thanks for visiting, and I hope you have a wonderful day.

  1. Beautiful card, lovely job of recreating Jessi's fabulous quilled flowers. pin and ribbon.

  2. Beautiful card, what a lovely way to pay tribute to Jessi, Jo x

  3. You did an outstanding job of casing this design. I was inspired by her work to try learning how to do quilling. She would probably laugh to know that I have all the supplies and have not quilled a single flower. Good Job!
