Hello Everyone, Terre here with a semi-simple card that you can create fast and simple! Simply choose a wonderful sentiment from Quietfire Designs. For this card I chose to use a special sentiment that has so much meaning right now in my life, "I Wouldn't Have Missed Being Your Friend", I created this card to send to my friend, four weeks ago she was diagnosed with stage four cancer and I am truly heart broken. When I looked through my amazing stamps from Quietfire Designs this one just spoke to me so I will be sending this to my friend.
I took my sentiment stamp and Tsukineko Memento Black ink and stamped it right on my embossed image. Just look at that detail!

Yogi here with you today. I recently made a card using Spellbinders Lattice die and loved all the little squares that were popping out of the die BIG GRIN. So I had to use them...
I side folded my white cardstock (5.5"w x 4.25"h). Applied Sookwang tape, keeping a 1/8" border all around. Started adhering my drop out squares (light mint Bazzill monochromatic cardstock) and leaving a space between them. I also added a piece of green Ruche paper (I ran out of little squares sigh...). When done, sprinkled with Glitter Ritz micro fine glitter "Bronze", burnished well.
Stamped the butterfly circle on white cardstock with Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed. Die cut with Spellbinders Classic Scalloped circle large set. Used tracing paper to make a stencil/mask of the inner portion of the circle so I could stamp the flower sprig (Flourishes "Magnolias") also with the black. Colored with Prisma colored pencils.
Stamped a portion of the Garden Delights stamp and hand cut with a wavy contour. Sponged a bit of brown on the edges and adhered to card. Adhered the circle.
Die cut the butterfly (E Craft Designs "Small Butterfly") from white cardstock. Sponged distress Worn Lipstick, then applied Perfect medium and embossed with Stampendous Stamp 'n Bond embossing powder. Sprinkled Ranger's Stickles Fine Glitter "Stardust" and reheated to set. Adhered to card with a foam square.
Hope you give a try to using your drop out pieces. There are some interesting things you can do with them.
Have a great day
Good morning it’s Sherry here with you another day this week! I’ve had this idea for a project using Garden Delights for some time and finally put it all together yesterday.
The project started with a 6x6 piece of watercolor paper that was painted with acrylic paints. Using Spellbinders Butterfly Garden Impressabilities as a stencil, Broken China Distress Ink Refill was misted over a portion of the paper. In alternating corners a white mist was sprayed using a stencil die cut with Spellbinders Grateful Lattice. A few acrylic paint splatters were added along with some gold from a gold leafing pen.
The sentiment was stamped in black pigment ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. Before adding anything else to the page, the edges were distressed with a pair of scissors and sponged with Antique Linen Distress Ink.
The flowers were made using a stencil die cut from chipboard using Spellbinders Jewel Flowers and Flourishes. White embossing paste was added in varying heights and thickness and allowed to air dry. Once dry, they were colored with Distress Inks in Wild Honey, Rusty Hinge, Seedless Preserves and Aged Mahogany. The stems for the flowers were made using another stencil for a guide – faint pencil lines were drawn and then colored with Marine Green and Spanish Olive alcohol markers.
While working on the page, it struck me that I needed something to mount it on, since it was too big for a card. I finally decided to mount the page on a 6x6 canvas which was painted black and then some gold accents were added to the edges. The page was adhered to the canvas with 1.5” double-sided tape.
As the finishing touch, I found some vintage gold buttons in my stash that I used for the flower centers.
That’s it for me today . . . thanks for stopping by and joining me!
Good morning! Sherry here today and I have a project to share using Graphic 45 French Country and the new Quietfire release, Home – Congratulations!
The base is a page from an old chipboard album, that was covered with papers from the Graphic 45 French Country Collection. The edges of the paper were sanded away and then sponged with Antique Linen Distress Ink. The black border at the bottom was die cut/embossed with Spellbinders A2 Scalloped Borders One. The frame was made from a piece of chipboard that had been covered with another paper design from the collection. It was die cut with Spellbinders A2 Distressed Edges.
The sentiment was stamped in black and then die cut/embossed with Spellbinders Labels Twelve. While the paper was still in the die, Antique Linen was used to stencil in some color leaving a nice white edge around the sentiment.
The seam binding ribbon was dyed with Aged Mahogany Distress Stain and Ink. The flower was die cut from watercolor paper with Spellbinders Jewel Flowers and Flourish. Because I wanted it to resemble the sunflowers in the paper, it was colored with Mustard Seed and Wild Honey Distress Stains and highlights were added with Rusty Hinge and Fired Brick inks.
That’s all for me today! Thanks for stopping in and joining me!
Joy Hauck created this beautiful set of cards for a recent family loss. We send our condolences to Joy and her family and thank her for sharing these beautiful cards to inspire us!
Here is the same card in silver....
and in gold....
Joy used diecut butterflies from Elizabeth Craft and the Phlox, Ivy Tendrils and Leaves are from Memory Box. Joy used Spellbinders Matting Basics behind the Filigree Delight which you can find here on our site.
SPELLBINDERS SHAPEABILITIES FOLIAGE was used to cut the leaves from scraps of the same Prima paper. All these pieces were sponged along the edges using RANGER DISTRESS INK in Forest Moss, with the leaves being fully covered in the ink, then crumpled and pinched into shape.
The oval had Victorian Velvet ink added and the base piece had Victorian Velvet and Tea Dye sponged on as well.
Forest Moss ink was used to stamp the FLOURISH onto the oval.
To complete this card, the base layer and oval were attached to a folded card base. Foam dots were applied to the spirelli blossom and it was positioned over the flourish stem. The leaves were tucked under the edge of the blossom and ribbon accents were added.
I love how the inks, papers and ribbon match so nicely.
Again, another fun time working with great products from Quietfire Design.
