Gilded Shoot for the Moon Card

Soar collection / Flourished Christmas Minis 2 / Forever Platinum Gilding Powder / Kim Gowdy

Happy August! Kim here on the blog today with a quick share. Sorry I do not have a step by step photo view, as I had more to-dos than weekend available! 


My card was actually quite simple to put together!


1] Cut a 5x10” sheet of cardstock, fold in half for your card base.


2] I cut a 4.5” square of Ranger ~ Dina Wakley Media Collage Collective paper. Within that        square I cut a circle, set aside.


3] I added Elizabeth Craft Designs double seeded adhesive to both sides of a scrap of cardstock and cut out the star from the Flourished Christmas Minis 2 set.


4] Use the patterned paper as a guide to place your star and set aside one ever agin. Before revealing the adhesive on the top side of the star, wipe your card with a dryer sheet to remove static for the next step.

5] Now remove the protective backing on the star, revealing the adhesive and sprinkle with Modern Gilding Powder ~ Forever Platinum, use heat gun to set.

6] Adhere the patterned paper now,  I had some little gold, sequin stars that I glued down for extra interest and texture.


7] Using a stamp positioner, I stamped my sentiment on a piece of 5x5” Duralar film, using the card underneath as a guide to position. I used StazOn ink for it’s permanency and quick dry time.

8] I used four mini Glue Dots at the edges to secure the Duralar down and had four small blue stars that were perfect for hiding the the dots of adhesives!

Falalalala Card


Hey Quietfire Fans! For today's project I'm excited to share with you my Falalalala Card. I combined a variety of dies and Modern Gilding Powder, which were all perfect for creating this Christmas card. You'll want to grab a cup of your favourite beverage and learn how to recreate my Falalalala Card at home.

To start, choose a couple of Christmas patterned papers. From one piece of patterned paper, die cut a 4" Stitched Rounded Rectangle. From the other piece of patterned paper, die cut a 3 1/2" Stitched Rounded Rectangle. Distress the edges of both papers. Ink the edges of both papers using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.


From a third piece of coordinating Christmas patterned paper, die cut the Flourished Frame out of it.


Die cut the Falalalala die out of white cardstock. Apply Emboss It Ink to the word. Sprinkle Gothic Black Modern Gilding Powder over the entire surface of the word. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool.


Apply Emboss It Dabber to a piece of white cardstock. Sprinkle Kells Gold Modern Gilding Powder over the white cardstock. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool. From the Peace on Earth die, you'll need the stars. Die cut the stars out of the embossed paper. You'll need a total of three.


From the Flourished Holly, die cut all of the piece out of white cardstock. Apply Emboss It Dabber to the skeleton holly leaf and the holly leaf bunch. Sprinkle Copper Scroll Modern Gilding Powder over the two pieces. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Forest Moss Distress Ink over the entire surface of the two holly leaves. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Fired Brick Distress Ink over the entire surface of the berries. 


Adhere the Flourished Frame to the 4" stitched rounded rectangle. Foam square the 3 1/2" stitched rounded rectangle to the middle of the 4" stitched rounded rectangle.


Adhere the Falalalala word to the middle of the 3 1/2" stitched rounded rectangle. The bottom of the Falalalala word will sit 1/8" from the bottom of the 3 1/2" stitched rounded rectangle.


Adhere the Flourished Holly together. Foam square the Flourished Holly to the top of the Falalalala word.


Use foam squares to adhere the three stars as desired around the Falalalala word.


To finish the card, cut a piece of white cardstock that measures 5 1/4" x 8", score at 4". Adhere the cardfront to the cardbase.


Here are a few closeups of the finished card.




Here is the finished Falalalala Card.

Quietfire Summer Blog Hop - Day 5

Hi, Diana here to wind up this fabulous blog hop here on Quietfire Design.  If you haven't commented on this week's blog hop, don't forget to go back and leave a comment for a chance to win.  Details at the bottom of this post.

Today I am sharing a couple of cards that use the same dies and stamp - just colored differently for a boy or girl.  It's handy to have both on hand if you don't know - and there always those surprises!  But this beautiful stamp from the Welcome Little One set works for either case.



The first card is done an a natural card stock - it has bits of handmade paper and is just a bit of a creamy gray - not quite white.  I honestly have no idea where I got it from but since I haven't gone out to shop much, I am really digging deep into my craft supplies!  Lol!



I stamped the card on white card stock and die cut it out of double stitched oval die.  The delicate flowers and frame is from this month's Spellbinders small die set.  I could not help but add some butterflies from the Butterflies Spray dies.    I used Copics to color my flowers.


For the baby girl card, I used white card stock for my base but sponged the top a soft pink and the bottom a very light green.  Again the butterflies match the flowers for an overall "pink" card but not overwhelmingly so.


As promised, here are the blog hop details.....

Each day we will be sharing a project or two to inspire your summer creativity.  We also have prizes!  There will be 2 prizes awarded, valued at $50 each and are a combination of Dies, Stamps and Digital files.  (Suzanne will have a look at the interests of the winners to decide what to give away!

Here is my project:

I've been sending out so many "hugs" in the mail lately!  These dies
are the perfect way to do that.
First I gathered my papers and the Sending Hugs Kisses Die Set:


I die cut the "Sending" and "Hugs" twice out of the same yellow card stock that I
was planning to use for my base.  I adhered them together so there was a double
layer on the words...just giving them a bit more sturdiness.  I used a scalloped
rectange die to cut my flower pattern paper.


I cut my pieces and rounded the corners on the yellow card base and the
blue layering paper.  


You'll find that these word dies are the perfect size for an A2 card!

I adhered my blue layering paper and my patterned paper to the card base.  Then
I adhered the words using a liquid glue.


I wanted a bit of shimmer so I used a yellow shimmer pen on the words after they
were adhered to the card.  I've tried to capture it here:


So hard to capture shimmer in a photo!  As a final embellishment, I added some
flower sequins, tiny leaf embellishments and a tiny bluebird!


I hope you enjoyed today's project using the Sending Hugs Kisses die set #1304

Please join us in this Quietfire Summer Blog Hop and give yourself a
chance to win!!!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

For my project today, I've created this cute Something Special is Happening! Baby Shower Invite, which features A Way With Words Dies and Stamps as well as Modern Gilding Powder.


To start, you'll need three pieces of baby themed patterned paper. From the first patterned paper, die cut a 4" Stitched Rectangle out of the paper. From the second patterned paper, die cut a 3 1/2" Stitched Rectangle. From the third patterned paper, die cut a 3" Stitched Rectangle out of the paper. Ink the edges of all three rectangles using Vintage Photo Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.



From the Flourished Frame Die, die cut the frame out of white cardstock.


From the Flourished Oval Frame Die, die cut the frame out of white cardstock.


Die cut a 5/8" Fitted Fishtail out of white cardstock. From the Please Join Us Stamp, you'll need the Something Special is happening! Apply Emboss It Ink to the stamp and stamp onto the fitted fishtail. Sprinkle Copper Scroll Modern Gilding Powder over the stamp saying. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool. Cut the fishtail down to 3 7/8". Ink the edges of the fishtail using Vintage Photo Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.


From the Diagonal Stitched Fishtails die, die cut the 3/4" fishtail out of a fourth piece of coordinating patterned paper. Cut the fishtail down to 4 1/8". Ink the edges of the fishtail using Vintage Photo Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.


From the Little Ones die, die cut the base of the onesie out of white cardstock. Cut the top portion of the onesie out of the same patterned paper you just die cut the fishtail out of.


Adhere the flourished frame to the 4" stitched rectangle. Foam square the 3 1/2" stitched rectangle to the middle of the 4" stitched rectangle.


Adhere the 3" stitched rectangle to the 3 1/2" stitched rectangle. Adhere the flourished oval frame to the middle of the 3" stitched rectangle.


Adhere the top of the onesie to the bottom onesie piece. Foam square the onesie to the middle of the flourished oval frame. Adhere the fitted fishtail to the diagonal stitched fishtail. Adhere the diagonal stitched fishtail 5/8" from the bottom and 1/4" from the left of the 4" stitched rectangle. 


To finish the card, cut a cardbase out of white cardstock that measures 5 1/4" x 8", score at 4". Adhere the cardfront to the cardbase.


Here are a few closeups of the finished invite.

Quietfire Summer Blog Hop - Day 1


Welcome to Day 1 of the Quietfire Summer Blog Hop! It’s Suzanne here today.  I was thinking it was way past time to pull out my newborn/baby designs, so that's the focus of today's project from me!  Even if you're not making a baby card, I hope some of the techniques in this project make their way into your other cards.

But first, here are the blog hop details.....

Each day we will be sharing a project or two to inspire your summer creativity.  We also have prizes!  There will be 2 prizes awarded, valued at $50 each and are a combination of Dies, Stamps and Digital files.  (Suzanne will have a look at the interests of the winners to decide what to give away! If you’re not a digital person, you won’t want those files!) To be eligible to win, you must leave a sweet comment on each Blog Hop blog post!  Visit Quietfire Creations and Quietfire Digital blogs to enter.

Here is the list of posts that you will need to comment on:
Monday: Suzanne on Quietfire Creations (You are here!)
Deadline for commenting is midnight Saturday, July 25, 2020
Winners will be announced on Sunday, July 26th.

Good luck!


Now back to the project! Here is how you can make it:

Supplies for this project:

Welcome
Little Ones
Flourished Night Sky
Flourished Frame
Welcome Little One Stamps
My Little Girl Paper
white cardstock
dark and pale pink cardstock
green cardstock
VersaMagic Malted Mauve stamp ink
Glue Dots
3D Foam Squares

Instructions:

  1. Stamp the oval sentiment on a panel of light pink paper measuring 4.25 x 6.25" closer to the top of the panel, as shown.  (You will need to leave room for the Welcome die below.)
  2. Die cut Welcome and the solid backing of the onesie from dark pink paper.  Die cut the Flourished Moon and the little flower (both from the Flourished Night Sky) and the Flourished Frame from white cardstock.  Also cut a panel slightly larger than the pale pink panel from white cardstock as well.
  3. Die cut the onesie from patterned paper.  Form a 6" x 7" high side-fold card base from coordinating patterned paper.
  4. Die cut the flower leaves from green cardstock.
  5. Assemble the onesie and adhere to the center of the stamped oval. 
  6. Mount the stamped oval panel to the white panel.  Cut the Flourished Frame in half lengthwise.  Adhere the halves of the frame so they peak outside the white panel as shown. I used Glue Dots to do this.
  7. Adhere Welcome below the stamped oval sentiment. Add the leaves behind the flower with Glue Dots and adhere it to the flourish on Welcome with Foam Squares to give some dimension.  Adhere the Flourished Moon as shown with Foam Squares.
  8. Adhere this to the cardbase with Foam Squares.

All done!  I hope this gives you some ideas for creating your own card. Congrats to the new parents and happy creating to you!

Don't forget to leave a comment on the blog to be eligible to win a prize!  Good luck.
Suzanne
