Sending a little hope for you

Hi everyone and welcome to the Quietfire Design blog today.  There are so many gorgeous stamps being released this month it was really hard to chose one to do my post but i found the perfect one and decided to make a card for a friend that lost someone special in her life a couple of weeks ago.

The stamp i used is called "Hope is the thing with Feathers".  It's a beautiful quote by Emily Dickinson and is perfect to send to a special person that needs exactly that... a little hope. To make it stand out i used Archival ink in deep rich red and embossed it to match the papers that i picked out.  The papers are from my stash but anything you have similar would work i am sure.  

  Sometimes when I have lots of pretty things spread out on my table.. I get really inspired and just keep going..... so I have another card to share to give for Valentines.

For this card i used some of the same pretty Valentines papers I used on my first card and created a card using the stamp called "The Greatest strength is gentleness".  I also stamped this in red ink and the artist name wasn't in the right place so i cut it and stamped it at the bottom so it would fit better.  

Then i added a pretty bow, leaves and a rose to finish it up.  Valentines is such a fun time to create things for your friends, the colors are so pretty and joyful and I am sure you will get lots of smiles and happy notes back thanking you for your thoughtfulness.  Have fun and be sure and check out all the other love inspired stamps and heart inspired stamps in the Quietfire store!

Thank you for stopping by and see you all again soon!!

Hugs & Kisses

Have you created a card for your Valentine?  Good Morning, this is Selma Stevenson today and I have a quick and easy card using the beautiful A Way With Words - Sending Hugs Kisses die set, and the A Way With Words - Calligraphic Element 2 die set.  

Sending Hugs Kisses - Metal Cutting Dies - PRE-ORDER

Calligraphic Elements 2 - Metal Cutting Dies

To create a special effect, I have die cut the Sentiment using Clear Double Sided Adhesive on the back of a piece of Red Metallic  Metallic Shimmer Sheetz.

To add a little more love to the card, I used the  Elizabeth Craft Designs Entwined Hearts die set to die cut hearts, also out of the Red Shimmer Sheetz.  The background was die cut using the Scalloped Square Frame die.

When you use Suzanne's A Way With Words die cut Calligraphy Sentiments, you will be adding beautiful class to your cards.

Baby Love Scrapbook Layout

Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a layout featuring the brand new Baby Love Way with Words dies and the Quietfire Design stamp 'Sometimes, Said Pooh'.

connie_nichol, baby love, quietfire design, elizabeth craft design

The Baby love word dies are so pretty and so perfect as a title for scrapbook layouts.  And of course you can use the words separately or combined with other words - how about Beautiful Baby for example?  

Baby Love - Metal Cutting Dies - PRE-ORDER   Sometimes, said Pooh - Mounted

I started with a plain piece of white cardstock and just spritzed a little spray ink on kind of a diagonal line to add a bit of interest.  I then mounted the white cardstock on a piece of dark teal cardstock to create a 1/4" border all the way around the page, but because my scanner is not 12x12 you can't see most of this.   I then added the stamped quote and a whole bunch of butterflies die cut from brightly coloured patterned paper.  Very easy and a great way to use up paper scraps!  Happy Scrapbooking!!

Supplies:  Elizabeth Craft Designs butterfly, stitched squares and Baby Love dies, Bo Bunny patterned paper, Quietfire Design stamp, Ranger Dylusions spray ink

Script love

Hello!  Today I am using a new die from Quietfire Design A Way With Words line.  It's from a set called "Baby love" but I used just the delicate love to make a Valentine's Day card.  I am casing  a card by Suzanne Cannon - you can see the original card (and many other beautiful ones HERE. at 0:35)  I first made a thin red mat to go with the script love.  The heart is Simon Says Stamp Heart of Roses - just a single layer of the die cut in white.  Any heart die will work.  

Since the love is so delicate, I used red cardstock adhered to double sided adhesive and then die cut it out so that I could stack it on top of each other four times.  

Sorry for the overcast tone - it's been cloudy here for the past few days.

Thank you so much for looking!

Moments - Every End is a New Beginning

Hello and Happy Tuesday!!  It's Wanda here today sharing a card using a new cutting die, Moments, a not so old stamp, Crackle Background, and some older stamps, the butterflies from Butterflies/Dragonflies Set and Every End is a New Beginning.  I even had my camera close by and did some step out pictures for you!!

I started with a piece of Mixed Media Cardstock (Ranger) that I had laying nearby, left after cutting some off for another project.  At this point I wasn't sure how large of a piece I would actually need for my card.  I stamped the crackle background repeatedly over the piece stamping about 3 times between inkings.

After drying the ink I used a mini brayer to add paint rolling in short bursts both horizontally and vertically allowing colors to overlap.  I dried this with the heat tool. 

Next I used white paint through a stencil (Andy Skinner). 

At first I was going to stamp the quote directly on the background but then decided some layering would be nice.  I grabbed another scrap of Mixed Media Cardstock, sprayed it with Dylusions Ink Spray, blotted up the excess with a paper towel, dried it, layed the stencil over it, sprayed water, removed the stencil, blotted the water and then dried the piece.  I chose a spot to stamp the quote. Stamped the quote with Embossing Ink, embossed it with black powder, and tore it out.

After determining what I was doing and getting a rough idea of placement, I trimmed the background paper to 5" x 6" and distressed the edges.  I stamped the small butterfly as shown.

I stamped the large butterfly on the background with embossing ink, embossed with Sticky Powder, and then used Gold Foil on it.  

The quote was layered to black cardstock cut with deckle scissors.  Moments was die cut from black cardstock.  Finished size of the card is 6 3/8" x 5 3/8". 

I hope you've enjoyed today's card!!  Thanks for following along!!

Hugs, Wanda

Beautiful, Beautiful, Beautiful You

Using one of the newest dies - another, batch of fantastic calligraphed die cut words by signature designer Suzanne Cannon available on Elizabeth Craft Designs A Way With Words "Beautiful" and one from a previous release YOU from "Thank You" both also available on Quietfire Design HERE and HERE

Scored, and folded my white card (5"w x 7"h).

Cut a bunch of the "Beautiful" word, sprayed the back with removable adhesive (Krylon "Easy Tack") and used it as a mask, sponging and direct to paper with Various Distress pads - "Spun Sugar" all over; sponging more heavily with the sugar around the word. Moving the mask down and sponging with "Mustard Seed" blending slightly into the pink above.

Used my hard rubber mallet to selectively emboss around the card front using Elizabeth Craft Design folder "Bouquet". Sponged around the edges with "Picked Raspberry".
Shadow detailed the words with an HB pencil.

Die cut another "Beautiful" and "You" from purple cardstock. Applied Glossy Accents and set aside to dry. Adhered to front.

Adhered some "Curvy Leaves" (Elizabeth Craft Designs), die cut from Brusho colored watercolor paper sprinkled with Gold powder.

Created the flower from punched circles and Mulberry paper. Edged the circles with a "Vintage Photo" pad. Tooled the circles and then adhered to create the flower. Added PVA glue and the beads in the center. Adhered to front.

Used a corner rounder punch for the card edges.
