Hello all! I am back again to share a couple more projects with you today using Quietfire designs. I have loved creating with these stamps throughout the month and will be continuing to do so right thru Valentine's day, coming up in just a couple of weeks!! And for that matter.... i don't think I'll be stopping just because Valentine's day is past! These are fabulous to use all thru the year!! So, let's get on with it shall we?

Today I will be sharing with you a card  as well as a candle!!

To create this card, here is what i did...
1. Create card base from black card stock 5" square. Trim striped paper slightly smaller. Distress edges and adhere to card front.
2. Trim cream card stock slightly smaller. Emboss using Spellbinders embossing folder and embossing machine (see supplies below). Adhere to card front. Machine stitch around edges.
3. Diecut black Royal circle die #3 (with #1 being the smallest).
4. Stamp sentiment onto cream card stock. Diecut using Standard Circles Lg.Nest together 2 circle dies and die cut striped paper to create a ring. Adhere to die cut sentiment.
5. Adhere black Royal Circle to card front using foam tape. Thread red ribbon thru and adhere to back of card front.
6. Adhere sentiment circle using foam tape. Tie ribbon into a bow and adhere, along with twine and flower.

Love Changes Everything

Hello All!  Kathy Jo here today to share a vintage style card using Quietfire's sweet sentiment, The Future is Uncertain:
The Future is Uncertain - Mounted
Told you it was sweet!  :)

The sentiment was stamped onto ivory card stock and die cut using Spellbinders Gold Circles One.  A white doily was placed under the sentiment.  I considered distressing the doily with ink but the white doily helped to emphasize the ivory die cut and sentiment.  The patterned paper is from Graphic 45- Sweet Sentiments.  I chose the paper for a few reasons: the name matches the description of the sentiment, it is beautiful paper, and because at CHA Suzanne Cannon and I took the Graphic 45 class together.  It was the first time Suzanne and I met and I really enjoyed the class with her!  I thought it would be great to have my first design post after CHA to include Graphic 45 paper.  
Suzanne's gorgeous stamps and Graphic 45 paper go so well together!  I love how she designed the "Love"!  Beautiful!
There was a little bit of fussy cutting involved but was worth it.  The hearts had to be cut out to go with the stamped sentiment!  Glossy accents was applied to the heart strand.  Stickles was applied to all of the butterflies and flowers.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  I do hope you enjoyed seeing the stamped sentiment and the project!  
Kathy Jo

PS:  Do you want to buy the stamp and die used on this card?  Good news: the newly released stamps are 20% off and the Spellbinders dies are 40% off!
