Baby Love Scrapbook Layout

Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a layout featuring the brand new Baby Love Way with Words dies and the Quietfire Design stamp 'Sometimes, Said Pooh'.

The Baby love word dies are so pretty and so perfect as a title for scrapbook layouts.  And of course you can use the words separately or combined with other words - how about Beautiful Baby for example?  

Baby Love - Metal Cutting Dies - PRE-ORDER   Sometimes, said Pooh - Mounted

I started with a plain piece of white cardstock and just spritzed a little spray ink on kind of a diagonal line to add a bit of interest.  I then mounted the white cardstock on a piece of dark teal cardstock to create a 1/4" border all the way around the page, but because my scanner is not 12x12 you can't see most of this.   I then added the stamped quote and a whole bunch of butterflies die cut from brightly coloured patterned paper.  Very easy and a great way to use up paper scraps!  Happy Scrapbooking!!

Supplies:  Elizabeth Craft Designs butterfly, stitched squares and Baby Love dies, Bo Bunny patterned paper, Quietfire Design stamp, Ranger Dylusions spray ink

Script love

Hello!  Today I am using a new die from Quietfire Design A Way With Words line.  It's from a set called "Baby love" but I used just the delicate love to make a Valentine's Day card.  I am casing  a card by Suzanne Cannon - you can see the original card (and many other beautiful ones HERE. at 0:35)  I first made a thin red mat to go with the script love.  The heart is Simon Says Stamp Heart of Roses - just a single layer of the die cut in white.  Any heart die will work.  

Since the love is so delicate, I used red cardstock adhered to double sided adhesive and then die cut it out so that I could stack it on top of each other four times.  

Sorry for the overcast tone - it's been cloudy here for the past few days.

Thank you so much for looking!

Moments - Every End is a New Beginning

Hello and Happy Tuesday!!  It's Wanda here today sharing a card using a new cutting die, Moments, a not so old stamp, Crackle Background, and some older stamps, the butterflies from Butterflies/Dragonflies Set and Every End is a New Beginning.  I even had my camera close by and did some step out pictures for you!!

I started with a piece of Mixed Media Cardstock (Ranger) that I had laying nearby, left after cutting some off for another project.  At this point I wasn't sure how large of a piece I would actually need for my card.  I stamped the crackle background repeatedly over the piece stamping about 3 times between inkings.

After drying the ink I used a mini brayer to add paint rolling in short bursts both horizontally and vertically allowing colors to overlap.  I dried this with the heat tool. 

Next I used white paint through a stencil (Andy Skinner). 

At first I was going to stamp the quote directly on the background but then decided some layering would be nice.  I grabbed another scrap of Mixed Media Cardstock, sprayed it with Dylusions Ink Spray, blotted up the excess with a paper towel, dried it, layed the stencil over it, sprayed water, removed the stencil, blotted the water and then dried the piece.  I chose a spot to stamp the quote. Stamped the quote with Embossing Ink, embossed it with black powder, and tore it out.

After determining what I was doing and getting a rough idea of placement, I trimmed the background paper to 5" x 6" and distressed the edges.  I stamped the small butterfly as shown.

I stamped the large butterfly on the background with embossing ink, embossed with Sticky Powder, and then used Gold Foil on it.  

The quote was layered to black cardstock cut with deckle scissors.  Moments was die cut from black cardstock.  Finished size of the card is 6 3/8" x 5 3/8". 

I hope you've enjoyed today's card!!  Thanks for following along!!

Hugs, Wanda

Beautiful, Beautiful, Beautiful You

Using one of the newest dies - another, batch of fantastic calligraphed die cut words by signature designer Suzanne Cannon available on Elizabeth Craft Designs A Way With Words "Beautiful" and one from a previous release YOU from "Thank You" both also available on Quietfire Design HERE and HERE

Scored, and folded my white card (5"w x 7"h).

Cut a bunch of the "Beautiful" word, sprayed the back with removable adhesive (Krylon "Easy Tack") and used it as a mask, sponging and direct to paper with Various Distress pads - "Spun Sugar" all over; sponging more heavily with the sugar around the word. Moving the mask down and sponging with "Mustard Seed" blending slightly into the pink above.

Used my hard rubber mallet to selectively emboss around the card front using Elizabeth Craft Design folder "Bouquet". Sponged around the edges with "Picked Raspberry".
Shadow detailed the words with an HB pencil.

Die cut another "Beautiful" and "You" from purple cardstock. Applied Glossy Accents and set aside to dry. Adhered to front.

Adhered some "Curvy Leaves" (Elizabeth Craft Designs), die cut from Brusho colored watercolor paper sprinkled with Gold powder.

Created the flower from punched circles and Mulberry paper. Edged the circles with a "Vintage Photo" pad. Tooled the circles and then adhered to create the flower. Added PVA glue and the beads in the center. Adhered to front.

Used a corner rounder punch for the card edges.

New die inspiration for you

Hi everyone it's Teresa here on this wonderful Friday to share a few ideas using our brand new release of dies coming out at the CHA show.  There are some gorgeous additions to our already amazing selection of Way with Word dies that you can preview here so i hope you can be inspired to create some fun and amazing gifts to give to your family and friends this year ....

So my first card is using the newest die "Together"... My brother got married on Valentines day so this card was inspired for them celebrating their wedding day.  Inside i can add a wonderful sentiment from all the Quietfire stamps that go with it and it will be ready to send out.  It is simple and elegant which made it really quick to make and the dies cut glitter paper like butter so that was really nice.

My second card is using the new "Sweet Smiles" die set.  I can think of so many uses for this die set and for me i decided to make it up with gorgeous papers from my Basic Grey stash and pretty chipboard and glitter.  I cut the die twice to give it a shadow and then popped it up with tiny 3D foam dots to make it stand out like the chipboard wreath that i used from GSLC.

And lastly i thought i would go a totally different way and use some of my Doodlebug paper stash and create a Valentine card.  For this i used the new "Because" die and cut it out on red paper to match with the paper die cut i used on the top.  It stands out really nice and on the top i made it as a card that opens to put in a message and gift card to my recipient.  I used the I love you stamp from the "I don't tell you often enough set" to put a message inside to go with the Because sentiment on the top.  It's fun that so many of the sentiments are made to go with the stamps that Quietfire carries.

So that is all from me today but be sure and check back each day for new ideas and inspiration from our Design team using these gorgeous new dies.... Have a wonderful weekend!

"The best kiss..." Valentine's Day card

Hello Crafters!

Kathy Jo here sharing a Valentine's Day card using the gorgeous Quietfire Design stamp, The best kiss:
The Best Kiss - Mounted
Quietfire Design stamps and dies are so beautiful.  I think they make a perfect pairing with Graphic 45 papers.  For this card, the stamp was paired with Graphic 45's Time to Flourish papers.  The sentiment was stamped on ivory Graphic 45 papers, die cut using a stitched tag die and mounted on the card as shown.  The flowers were fussy cut from Time to Flourish papers.
Isn't the sentiment beautiful?  Perfect for your sweetie this Valentine's Day!
Thanks for stopping by!  I do hope you enjoyed the card and that you have a happy, crafty day!
Big Hugs,
Kathy Jo

Sometimes I just look up...

Hello everyone,

Yvonne here with a card using the Quietfire Design stamp "Sometimes I just look up".

For the card I used a white cardbase size 5¼ x 7" upon which layered patterned paper and die-cuts.
For a 3-dimensional look foam squares were used for the die-cut layers.
The sentiment was stamped using brown ink.

Leave the die-cut in the die and ink using brown Distress ink and an ink blending tool.
Finish the card with mulberry flowers, leaves, crochet ribbon and self-adhesive pearls.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a great day,

Thanks For Being My Friend

Maybe you have thank you notes you need to send out or maybe you need a Valentine for a friend.  It is always nice to let your friends know you value their friendship.  

You can always create beautiful cards when you use the Quietfire Design dies and rubber stamps.  This is Selma Stevenson today and I used a combination of the A Way With Words dies and one of the stamps from the Thanks Cuddlers stamp set.

This is a 6 inch square card.   A white panel, slightly smaller than the card front was cut and embossed with dots.  It was scored around the edges to give that piece a finished look.

Thanks - Metal Cutting Die

A Stitched Heart was die cut out of textured pink card stock and attached to the center of the card.  The A Way With Words - Thanks was die cut four times and each die cut stacked/glued to create dimension.  It was glued to the center of the heart as shown.

Thanks Cuddlers, Set of 7 Stamps - Mounted

On a piece of Vellum card stock, the "for being my friend" was stamped with VersaMark and white embossed.  The ends of the Vellum were cut into "fishtails", then a glue dot was used to attach it to the card.  White sticky back pearls were attached over the glue dots.

Three small roses were created using Garden Notes Rose 2 dies.  They were attached to the upper left side of the die cut heart.  A few small pearls were added around the bottom of the arrangement.

Don't forget to thank that special friend!
