Love Lives Here - Guest Designer Linda Lucas


Hi, it is Linda here and I am so excited to have been invited to be a Guest Designer for Quietfire Design - I have always loved these beautiful sentiments - and the calligraphy makes them even more special.  I have to say it was nearly impossible to choose the ones I was going to use - they are all fabulous!



I did finally manage to choose, and for my card today I have chosen the Love Lives Here sentiment.  It works so beautifully with the Painted Lady Die from Spellbinders.  I have used the stamp to create a house sign, almost wreath like - it is what we would all like for our homes....



The sentiment has been stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and cut out using the Standard Circle Die, the inside of the Die has been sponged using Danube Blue Ink.  This has then been layered onto a larger circle in blue, using Crafty Foam Tape for dimension.


Flowers are the perfect embellishment, framing the sentiment, along with a double Seam Binding bow.  I love the way that such a small sentiment can say so much!
