Gilded Christmas - Glory to God in the Highest

Merry Christmas, everyone!

It's Nancy here on the blog today, sharing my Gilded Christmas card,
using the beautiful Glory to God in the Highest stamp!


This is such a beautiful stamp! 
I've embossed it using the gorgeous Kells Gold Modern Gilding Powder,
which makes it even more beautiful!


For my background paper, I chose a lovely piece that has gold foil bits on it.
It works perfectly with the gilded sentiment.


Here's a closer look at the wonderful stamp design.


Another photo that shows off the fabulous gold shine.


I cut the fantastic Flourished Holly Die from Rinea Glossy Gold foiled paper.
It's such an intricate die, with so many creative possibilities.
The shine of the foiled paper matches the gold gilding so well.
You could always cut the die out of any paper and gild it with the Kells Gold Gilding Powder.



All you need is a few fantastic products from Quietfire Design,
and you can easily put together a beautiful Christmas card.

A friend started a postcard exchange, so I'm going non traditional this year.
(and less postage!)
I've been experimenting with the Modern Gilding powders, and for the center of the snowflakes added red superfine glitter!
The house was gilded with a mix of gold and copper.
The stamps and powders are super fine, so I recommend using Versafine inks to maintain the fine lines of the calligraphy when gilding.

There Are Many Gifts ~ Christmas Card

Quietfire Design There Are Many Gifts stamp set / CopperScroll Gilding Powders / Christmas card designed by Kim Gowdy

Monday mornings are a whole lot more fun when I get to share some creative play on the Quietfire Creations Blog! Over the weekend I was working to get a few more Christmas cards completed, time is ticking away and soon I’ll need to get my cards in the mail! Quietfire Design has some beautiful stamp sets with amazing quotes and images, it was hard to decide which to create with. Once I choose to play with the “There Are Many Gifts” set...the fun started!

Quietfire Design There Are Many Gifts stamp set  / Christmas card designed by Kim Gowdy


My background was created with three colours of Distress Oxide inks, blended on top of Creative Scrapbooker Superstock. Lately I have been grabbing greens, but any combination of Distress Oxides always seem to work perfectly!

Once my layers were blended, I splattered water over top very randomly. I like to let it sit for a bit before lifting excess water with paper towel. This adds lots of visual texture and interest. I often soften the water spots with some more blended ink.

I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide and then embossed with the Copper Scroll Modern Gilding Powder. Oxide inks are fluid and wet enough to use with embossing powders. I used the same ink to the edges of my cardstock.

I made a decorative element by embossing a chipboard die cut with Copper Scroll Modern Gilding Powder. Embossed chipboard is YUMMY!!! I love it! I layered a mono print and a Tim Holtz Paper Doll to create a frame, that sits just above my sentiment.

I felt it needed just a little something else, so I stamped a few random stars (from the same stamp set) on the background and glued on a few snowflake sequins. Sometimes it’s the smallest detail that makes me go from liking a card to loving it!

Christmas Joy

Hello!  I've still got a several Christmas cards in me before the season is done. :)  I changed up the color scheme just a bit here.  Hope you like it!

 I started with a tent fold black card base of 5.5" x 4.25". On a sheet of white card stock measuring 5.25" x 4", sponge different shades of pink to red to a dark purple using Distress Oxide Inks. Die cut the Flourished Candle out of white card stock. For the glittered portions in the picture, use the double sided adhesive on the white card stock before die cutting. Use two die circles to make the nimbus for the candle.
  I used the glitter Sand Dunes for the flame and Silver Sand for the halo. To add a bit of shading to the flourishes under the candle, I used light grey Copic markers to add a bit of dimension to the candle. For the final piece, I embossed Christmas from the stamp Christmas Collection set on black card stock and trimmed down. Adhere all pieces together as pictured. I added white dots using a while gel pen.

I think this card will look lovely on a mantle with greenery and candles - how that red will stand out!

May Each Treasured Memory...


Hello Quietfire fans!  Betsy on the blog here today to share a comforting card.
Although we are at the start of the festive time of the year, these
types of cards will still be needed by many.  This is an easy one to make.

I used:


I love the sentiment on this stamp. I first cut my main panel from a Ciao Bella Paper 
Collection - The Muse.  I then inked the edges with Ranger Tea Dye Distress Ink.   Next I stamped my image in a black hybrid ink and then heat embossed it with Modern Gilding Powders 
in Gothic Black.  I find I get a really crisp image using hybrid ink instead of embossing ink.  
And the Modern Gilding Powders are just awesome!
I cut an A2 size top folding card panel and placed my inked background panel on it.  I 
 Then I adhered the stamped panel.  I added some nail heads to the corners and
that finished my card!


Sometimes the paper and the style of the sentiment really work well together.  I love how
this card panel looks like the stamped image was just penned!

I hope you enjoyed today's tutorial.  Simple, yet gets the message across when it's hard to come up with the words.

Dear Santa...Let Your Heart be the Light!

let-your-heart-be-the-light-kells-gold-distress-oxide-kim-gowdy

Hello and Happy Thursday, November 28th! How did we get to the end of the month already? With less than a month before Christmas, there is still lots of card making and gift buying to do (at least for me!). I have been so inspired by all the wonderful cards shared on the Quietfire blogs this past month and thought I’d add one more to the mix.

My card quickly came together as soon as I saw this wonderful quote from the ‘Let Your Heart be Light’ collection of stamps! The two little boys from Tim Holtz’s Idea-ology Paper Dolls play so perfectly with the sentiment!

stenicl-snowflakes-leaves-let-your-heart-be-the-light-kells-gold-distress-oxide-kim-gowdy


I used the Leaf and Snowflakes Spray stencil with some white acrylic paint on a piece of Creative Scrapbooker’s Superstock. Using the three colours of green Distress Oxide inks, I blended the colours over top of the snowflakes and spritzed with water for even more texture. I buffed the snowflakes to remove the ink and make them pop.

let-your-heart-be-the-light-kells-gold-distress-oxide-kim-gowdy


My sentiment was stamped and embossed with the Kells Gold Modern Gilding Powder. I love the shine and texture it provides. I also edged my cardstock border very randomly and embossed with the same Kells Gold Modern Gilding Powder, it’s the perfect way to bring your focus into the card!

Be sure to add this fun stencil and stamp set to your Christmas card making kit. The sentiments are perfect for every card you send! Of course no craft room would be complete without a few (or ALL!) jars of Modern Gilding Powders! Happy Card making!

Glittered and Gilded Flourished Christmas Mini 2 Card

Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a Christmas card featuring the Flourished Christmas Minis 2 die set.  These mini's fit perfectly into the Christmas ornament die previously released by Quietfire Design.


This card is very simple to make - simply cut a card sized rectangle of a two sided adhesive sheet, then peel off one side and firmly place the die cut ornament and star onto the sticky surface.  Carefully sprinkle extra fine glitter where desired and burnish with your finger (rub firmly into the adhesive sheet).  Then, sprinkle Quietfire Design gilding powder in other areas and heat to melt.   You can use all glitter, or all gilding powder but I like the textural contrast when I use both.  Mount the glittered adhesive sheet to a cardstock base and add a stamped sentiment.  Easy, huh?  Be sure to try other combinations of glitter and gilding powders and see which you like best.  Thanks for stopping by!






Quietfire Design Supplies Used:  Dragon Berry gilding powder, Flourished Christmas Mini 2 dies, Love, Joy, Peace Christmas Ornament die, Let your heart be light stamp set

Other Supplies:  Elizabeth Craft Designs adhesive sheets and glitter, white cardstock and mirrored magenta cardstock
