Destiny Card


Hey Quietfire Fans! I'm excited to be back on the blog today sharing my Destiny card. I think the Destiny stamp is one of my favourites:) To create my card I used a variety of Quietfire Stamps and A Way With Words Dies. Grab a cup of your favourite summer beverage and learn how to recreate my Destiny Card at home. 


To start, cut a piece of white cardstock that measures 4" x 5 1/4". Using a blending tool with foam, blend Peacock Feathers, Broken China and Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide Ink onto the piece of white cardstock. Spritz the piece of cardstock with water. Dry the piece of cardstock with a heat tool.


Apply Emboss It Ink to the Crackle Background stamp and stamp onto the now coloured piece of cardstock. Reapply the Emboss It Ink to the crackle background stamp and stamp onto the top portion of the now coloured cardstock. Sprinkle Clear Fine Gloss Embossing Powder overtop of the piece of cardstock. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool.


Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the tea ring from the Tea Set. Stamp off on a piece of paper towel and then stamp randomly onto the piece of cardstock. Continue the previous step until you have five rings on the cardstock piece.


Die cut the large butterfly from the Butterfly Flourished die out of white cardstock. Apply Emboss It Ink to the large butterfly. Sprinkle Midnight Black Embossing Powder overtop of the large butterfly. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool. Reapply the embossing powder if needed.



Die cut two small butterflies from the Butterfly Flourish out of white cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam to blend Broken China Distress Oxide Ink over top of one of the butterflies. Using a blending tool with foam to blend Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide Ink over top of the other butterfly. Spritz both butterflies with water. 


Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the Destiny is not a Matter of Chance stamp. Stamp the quote onto the piece of white cardstock. Using the 2 1/4" Stitched Circle Die, die cut the sentiment out of it. Distress the edges of the circle and the now crackle background paper. Ink the edges of both pieces using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.


Adhere the large butterfly die cut in the top left portion of the card front. Foam square the Destiny quote circle slightly overtop of the large butterfly.


Adhere the two butterflies around the Destiny quote.


Cut a piece of white cardstock that measures 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", score at 4 1/4". Foam square the card front to the cardbase. To finish off the card, colour the small butterflies with the wink of stella - clear glitter pen.

Here are a couple of close up's of my Destiny Card.

  1. I can’t help but wonder how such detailed cards are created! Do you start out with everything set out in front of you because you can visualize it in your head? I could never, ever create such a complex and gorgeous card. Your layer upon layer of color, stamping, and embossing are amazing. And using the tea stain stamp as a kind of corner embellishment is brilliant! I’m in awe.
