Welcome to our New Designers!

Just in case you didn't see it in our newsletter, I'm delighted to welcome two new members to the Quietfire Design Team!  We are so lucky to have them.

At CHA in January I was snooping around the Spellbinders booth (for the 10th time, after all, you see something new every time!) and I caught sight of a card with a Quietfire stamp on it.  Well, nobody knew who did it and these things are *seriously* stuck in place so we couldn't see the back.  I can't recall how I finally found out whose card it was, but I know now. It was Teresa Horner's beautiful card!

Teresa is our July Guest Designer (scroll down this blog to see her recent creations) and we are so pleased she is joining us on a regular basis!

Teresa shared a bit about herself with us.

I am a true artist at heart and love trying everything involved with it.  I grew up with pencils, crayons and paintbrushes in my hands and ended up studying Graphic Design and Costume design in school and college.  I had my own craft business for a long time and worked the shows and sold in two stores.  I also love to help out at church and my kids school growing up and was always the first to raise my hand where crafts needed to be done. 
My next addiction came with Scrapbooking and Cardmaking and I worked, taught, made store samples, and was a buyer at my local scrapbook store for 12 years. During this time I was on the Best Creation Design team too where I was the DT Coordinator and worked the CHA shows.  I am currently in my second year on the Spellbinders Design Team. And I am also teaching card classes at Prima and Scrap N Yap...
I am so excited to be on the Quietfire Design Team this year and adore doing Calligraphy myself so it was a perfect match with Spellbinders.  
And as to where my blog name came from.. {I asked!} I love all things Victorian and working at the store for 12 years has given me a huge supply of paper to work with so my son came up with Paper Queen... not sure if I should be proud of the hoarding but I love what I do and want to have albums and cards for my family, kids and grandkids someday so I am all stocked up LOL!!

Teresa's personal blog is Victorian Paper Queen where you can see more of her beautiful creations.

Our other new designer is Debbie Sherman who was scheduled to be our Guest Designer in September, but we swept her into the fold early! 
Here is what Debbie shared with us about herself.
Hi!  I'm Debbie Sherman from the Cowboy State, big beautiful Wyoming!  I'm so excited to be part of the Quietfire Design Team! 
When I'm not scrap booking I am a road designer, photographer, wife, mother, grandmother of 6, auntie and friend. I have been crafting since I was a little girl.  I started out sewing and making jewelry around the age of 7 and have been creating ever since.  I still bead and sew but now it's mostly on my paper projects. 
I love photography and sometimes get that "great shot" that all photographers live for!  I am fortunate enough to have a press pass and am able to shoot big events occasionally. The city I live in has a yearly old west celebration called the"Daddy of 'em all" and I'm fortunate enough to attend the big rodeo's, Native Americans and several other events in town. With my press pass I have front row seating for these events which allows for some awesome photos. With all the photos I take it gives me the perfect reason to scrap them! I'm hoping to share some of those with all of you! I'm so excited to be part of this wonderful team and hope to inspire and be inspired along the way.
Debbie's personal blog is Creatively Speaking where you may see her versatile creations!
We're so happy to have both these very talented ladies join us!

Welcome Little One Card Two

Hello Crafty Peeps! Terre Fry here  and do I have a treat for you today! Just look at this cute, cute, cute baby card! This is the new baby stamp set "Welcome Little One" from Quietfire Designs.
I used Copic Markers to color in the moon and the stars and airbrushed the center die cut with blue and added foam square to pop it up off the center.
I created a baby rattle using Spellbinders newest Media Mixage line of products call the Circle Bezel Hat Pin, added a few beads and there  you have it, a hand made rattle with an adorable paper photo inside. Thank you for stopping by  most blog post today, I hope you have enjoyed my creativity. Have a wonderful day. Terre

Floral Thank you

Hi Y'all, Robyn here with a question- to color or not to color?

The Floral Thank You is the focus of this card and introducing the Flourished Leaf Oval Frame, Digital cut file for all y'all with digital cutting machines. If you don't have a machine, some of the files have a PDF file you can hand cut.

I made an embossing mask with my cutter out of chip board to get the swiss dots only on the outside of the frame- a Cuttlebug folder.

The stamps are thermal embossed with Queens Gold, my new fav.

Then I colored.
Leave a comment of which on you like best.

This simple card is made with the same stamp set and the  Digital Flourished Leaf Rectangular Frame.
So much is happening at Quietfire Design, new stamps, new digital cutting files, new designers!!!( you might be seeing less of me) so be sure to stop back here often and on our FB page and share what you are creating with us!

Please note:  We are unable to ship orders from July 29 to August 7, 2013.
We apologize for any inconvenience.

Cut Flower - You Can Never Have Too Much Fabric

Me again, Yogi... And this is the stencil used in the previous card you can see HERE, this time as the background...

In my previous card I created a stencil, with various sizes of the "Little Flowers", adding a border and "welding" everything together, adding various sized holes in the centers of each flower, then cutting it out with my electronic cutter. The previous card sponged Distress "Mustard Seed", "Shabby Shutters" & "Spiced Marmalade".

I scored and folded my 7"w x 5"h (closed) easel card.

I repeatedly stamped the "You can never" quote using Versafine Black Onyx on white cardstock. Trimmed down to fit my card front, then adhered my flower stencil/background piece. Added faux stitching with a pointed pen and a mix of Copic opaque white ink and water.

 Die cut a bunch of buttons (Memory Box) from white cardstock and sponged various colors of Distress, then clear embossed each. Tied some twine and adhered to card front.

Die cut the stopper (Sizzix Tim's On Edge "Sewing" die) from white cardstock and colored the elements, adding some linear lines for the thread spools and some Pearlescent embossing powder on the metal spools. Kept a small border on the bottom to score and fold and adhered to card floor.

Stamped the "Sleeping Under a Quilt..." with the black and clear embossed. Used the Larger flower cut the other day as a stencil to sponge matching colors around the quote. Used some of the buttons as stencils as well.

I wouldn't have missed being your friend - Card

Hi everyone, Teresa here again as a Guest Designer for Quietfire Design to share another card that I made, perfect for friends.

I'm excited to announce that I have been invited to be a member of the Quietfire Design team, so you'll be seeing a lot more of me here!

 I used
the Gentle Thoughts stamp #5958 for my card .

I love this stamp because it is the perfect sentiment to
use for all kinds of projects that you would make to give
to all the friends that you have in your life.  Today I have
a simple card to share that is quick and easy to do.

For my card I used My Minds Eye Paris & Co 6x6 pad
and also used S5-177 A2 Filigree Delight to cut and
emboss the background with ivory cardstock.  To create
the place for the sentiment I used S4-310 Labels Eighteen
and cut them out of brown and blue papers.
To stamp my sentiment I wanted a dark brown to match 
the papers so I used Ranger Archival Ink in Coffee 
and embossed it with clear powder to make it pop.

To finish it I made a bow with twine and added some
pretty wooden leaves and a couple of flowers.

I hope you like it and be sure and check out my blog
for more ideas with Quietfire stamps and Spellbinders dies!

Welcome Little One!

Good morning!  Sherry here today and I have a card to share with you . . . now don’t faint or anything, but I actually turned on my sewing machine and stitched on a card for the first time in months and months!


I used some old Graphic 45 Little Darlings 8x8 paper for the card, trimming the paper to fit a 5-1/2” square card.  The edges of the paper were sponged with Antique Linen Distress Ink and the bottom of the top layer was distressed to lay over the bottom.  A border was die cut/embossed with Spellbinders A2 Scalloped Borders One, which was also sponged in Antique Linen and then slipped under the distressed edge of the top layer.  All the top layers to the card were then stitched to a cardstock base.

The sentiment was stamped and embossed with Queen’s Gold Embossing Powder, then die cut/embossed with Spellbinders Ovals Small.  The layers behind the sentiment were die cut/embossed with Ovals Large and Beaded Ovals.

The ribbon was dyed with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink and the tag (also from the Graphic 45 Little Darlings Collection) was tied to the bow.


That’s all for me today!  Thanks for joining me.

Hi Everyone! This is Holly and I would like to share a couple cards I made using NEW stamp sets from Quietfire Design, HOME, and FLORAL THANK YOU.
This thank you card is 1 1/4" squares, cut from a quarter sheet of glossy card stock, that was heat embossed with RANGER QUEEN'S GOLD embossing powder, then inked with RANGER DISTRESS INKS  The stamps were placed randomly and the inks were sponged on randomly.
Makes it all so easy!
The squares were adhered to a base that had been embossed with TIM HOLTZ EMBOSSING FOLDER- RAYS AND RETRO CIRCLES, followed by a stamped and trimmed Thank You, using 3D FOAM SQUARES. 

This card is the same idea, just uses different shapes and colours, the HOME-CONGRATULATIONS stamp set and SPELLBINDERS M-BOSSIBILITIES SO TRENDY for embossing the base mat.

Thank you for looking today and I hope you'll try this 'grid' type design.

Tie it Up Beautifully for A Friend

Looking for a little gift for a friend?  Why not bundle up some beautiful ribbons?

I thought little pillow boxes would be perfect for this project.  Die cut the pillow boxes from white cardstock and then emboss with Spellbinders M-Bossabilities.  I found it really difficult to photograph these for some reason.  My apologies!  The Ornamental Swirl embossing is incredibly deep.  Unbelievable!

The box with the Sari Ribbon (above) actually has a diecut window that the ribbon is swirling out from.  You might want to put a little transparency on the inside to keep the ribbon from escaping. The quotation was stamped using Habanero VersaFine ink, which was later sponged onto the paper while the die was still in place.

Just for You was stamped on  - ahem, I can't remember which diecut it is! (I have to confess, some of this projects has been on my table for some time....) I hope this gives you some ideas!

Thanks for having a look!
Here are the thumbnail links to the products I used.
