We Do Not Remember Days - Card

Hi there!  It's Suzanne here with another quickie card I created. I've been wanting to use the pearl flourish with the heart for a while and I finally found a good opportunity.  I hope you like it!

Reagents (with links):

Kaisercraft Sweet Nothings paper pad
Archival Sepia Ink
Best Glue Ever - for securing the flowers - sticky! very sticky!
Heart Flourish Self-Adhesive Pearls from Zva
I used Distress Old Paper for the shading.
The tiny flowers are from the Spellbinders Whimsy set (link below with photo) and I touched up the tips with Gesso and a small brush.  The little curliques beside the flowers were made with the "negative" part of the flower after it is die cut.
The other items are below:

Courage Doesn't Always Roar - Card

Good Afternoon, my friends!  It's Suzanne here with my first offering from the new Quietfire Rubber stamps!

I went with simple.  It seemed safest!
This is a 5x7 card, using my close-at-hand Cardblanks.
The paper is Bo Bunny Weekend Market except for the leaf which is a coordinating colour of cardstock.
I stamped Courage Doesn't Always Roar (unavailable at this time) with Ranger Adirondack Pigment Terra Cotta and shaded with the Terra Cotta, Adirondack Espresso and Distress Wild Honey.
Spellbinders Dies were: Fleur de Lis Rectangle, Labels One Small and Foliage

Thanks for stopping by and having a look! Suzanne

Our Design Team!

I'd like to take this opportunity to introduce you to our Design Team members who will be playing with us until at least the end of the year.  I am so lucky (and I have to admit, sometimes intimidated) to be with this amazingly talented group of Designers!!  This is just a quick intro, there will be more in-depth features coming soon! 

Yogi Grunwald
Yogi has been designing with Quietfire rubber stamps for a loooonnggggg time! We are fellow calligraphers and have had the pleasure of meeting a number of times when I've been in Calgary.  In a workshop, Yogi's part of the room is always quiet, but wow, there is a flurry of activity happening in front of her. I think she can't work as fast as her brain can design! 
You may find her ever-changing styles and techniques posted regularly her blog, Art With Yogi.  There is never a dull moment with Yogi!

Monica Latka Black
Monica, gee, we go back a long way!  Cyberstampers!  You found me and began using my stamps in online classes. You helped me "grow up"!
Monica has beautiful colour sense and loves experimenting.  We all need to encourage her to share more!  You may visit Monica's blog at Black Cats Color Trails.

Robyn Josephs aka forrestwife
Robyn has been in my life for quite some time - before she moved to her beautiful North Carolina mountains!
If you need an idea or suggestion, throw it Robyn's way.  It's amazing what will come back to you.  Her minds works in all sorts of wonderful ways and of course, it shows in her art!  You may visit Robyn's blog at Rainbow Weaves.

Wanda Hentges
Wanda, gee what can I say?  You make great art! Wonderful colour, wonderful ideas. You are another gift to me from Cyberstampers. You are my go-to person for Tim Holtz product questions! You never fail to inspire me when I go back through photos of your designs. I will always welcome you to the Design Team when you're able.
You may see Wanda's blog at Art by Wanda.

And welcome to our new Designers shown below!  I love all of their work.  As with our "old" (sorry, guys) Designers, you'll be treated to lots of variety with these ladies.  I look forward to getting to know them much better!

Holly Eastabrook
Holly loves experimenting with techniques and combining elements in a different way than you might expect! Holly is our current Guest Designer and her sweetie of a project can be seen here. You may visit her blog Eastyart here!

Sherry Cheever
I loved Sherry from the first time I visited the blog of "Her Royal Badness".  What's not to like?!  I had the pleasure of meeting Sherry at CHA in January and I assure you, she is not bad!  I love Sherry's designs and that she resists going with the flow in her creations.
You may visit Sherry's blog at Walkin' on the Bad Side.

Alison Tyler Jones Photography
Darsie Bruno
Darsie's artwork has an elegant touch that pulled me in immediately.  Need I say more?  Just visit Darsie's Crafting with Darsie blog and you'll immediately understand what I mean!

Terre Fry
When I see Terre's work, I always get the impression that she has merely opened the tap to let out a drop of her creativity and if the floodgates open, we better stand back!  Terre must have the creative part of her brain on "Go!", so that when she gets time, it all comes together with amazing variety and creativity. I've had the pleasure of meeting Terre at CHA twice and she is wonderfully kind and patient when I have my retailer's cap on.
You may visit Terre's blog Terre's Scrap Therapy here.

I don't know about you, but I can hardly wait to see what these ladies will create!  Thanks so much for being here!
