Dream Tag


Hey Quietfire Fans! I'm ready for spring to arrive here on the west coast of Canada. So for today's project, I'm sharing with you my Dream Tag. By combining a variety of stamps, dies and the Modern Gilding Powders, they were all perfect for creating my tag. You'll want to grab a cup of your favourite beverage and learn how to recreate my Dream Tag at home.

Die cut a 2 1/2" Stitched Oval out of white cardstock. Sprinkle Wisteria and Spring Green Magenta Nuance over the tag. Spritz the powder with water. Dry the oval using a heat tool. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the Dream with your eyes wide open quote and stamp to the middle of the oval. Distress the edges of the oval. Ink the edges of the oval using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.


Die cut the Flourished Oval Frame out of white cardstock. Apply a coat of Emboss It Ink to the frame. Sprinkle Kells Gold Modern Gilding Powder over the entire surface of the frame. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool.


Apply Emboss It Ink to the medium Flourished Corner and stamp onto a piece of white cardstock. Reapply ink to the flourished corner and stamp onto the same piece of white cardstock. Sprinkle Gothic Black Modern Gilding Powder over the corners. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool. Fussy cut the corners out. Ink the edges of the corners using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.


From the Butterfly Flourish die, die cut the medium and small butterfly out of white cardstock.


Die cut a 3" x 6" tag out of white cardstock. Cut the tag down to 5 1/2". Sprinkle Wisteria, Turquoise and Spring Green Magenta Nuance Powder. Spritz the powder with water. Dry the tag with a heat tool.


Apply Emboss It Ink to the Grid Background stamp and stamp randomly onto the tag. Reapply ink to the background stamp as needed and stamp another five times. Sprinkle Gothic Black Modern Gilding Powder over the entire surface of the tag. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool. Distress the edges of the tag. Ink the edges of the tag using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.


Foam square one of the flourished corners 1/2" from the bottom and 1" from the left of the tag. Foam square the other flourished corner 1" from the left and 1 1/4" from the top of the tag.


Adhere the flourished frame to the stitched oval. Use adhesive and foam square to adhere the oval 1" from the left and 1/2" from the bottom of the tag.


Adhere the medium butterfly to the bottom left side of the flourished frame. Adhere the small butterfly to the top right side of the flourished frame. To finish the tag, tie a piece of twine through the top of the tag.


Here are a few closeup photos of the finished tag.






Here is the finished Dream Tag.

Shoot for the moon

Hi, there!  I'm here to share a card for the dreamers and the go-getters in your life... or maybe you need to give them a little nudge in that direction.  Haha!  It's the mom in me coming out.



I was in a bit of a rush to make this so I don't have any pics of the steps to make the card but it's pretty straightforward.  I started with a piece of vellum and embossed in black the sentiment from the Soar Collection. I usually emboss on vellum because I have the hardest time not having my ink smear. 

To make my starry night background, I started with blue cardstock and used Black Soot Distress Oxide to darken it.  I then splattered gold Finetec paint on it.  I turned the Star Spray die so that the smaller stars would be at the top.  I then covered a sheet of cardstock with Silver Sands Silk Microfine Glitter and cut the same stars out of that.  Set those aside for now.  Make a moon by using a circle die or punch and then use the same punch/die to turn it into a crescent moon.

The reason for those glittery stars (besides being very pretty) is so that I could have places to add adhesive to the vellum to adhere to the background.  As you know, you can see wherever you put adhesive on the vellum so I did select places and then covered them the with the glittery stars.


Hope you like it and got some ideas and tips from this card.  Thanks so much for looking!

There are always flowers...

Hello, friends! It's Nancy back on the blog today!

This month I'm sharing a fun card that features a number of wonderful Quietfire Design products!

Here's the card I made:


I found a piece of watercolour paper on my desk, so I began with that.
I stenciled the Dotty design onto the paper using some pink ink. 


I then stamped the wonderful sentiment, on to the stenciled background, using VersaMark ink.
I sprinkled it with the beautiful Dragon Berry Modern Gilding Powder, tapped it off,
and set it with my heat tool.
Isn't that a beautiful shine?


I mounted the watercolour piece onto a slightly larger card base, using foam tape.
Then I die-cut the pretty rose and added it in place on the card front.
I curled up the leaves for some extra dimension, and put a little piece of foam tape under the rose.


This card was lots of fun to put together using these fabulous products!
It would be a lovely card to send for so many different occasions!

A Baby Is Such a Beautiful Way


Hello Quietfire fans!  Betsy here today sharing with you this beautiful baby
card that uses both a stamp and a cut file!


I assembled all my pieces and used my cut file first.  I sized it and decided not to use the
entire file for the onsie.  It has a smaller once that sits on top with a heart.  But I wanted
to stamp on the onsie, so only cut out the main image.  


I cut my patterned paper to 4" x 5 1/4" and adhered to an A2 size top folding white card base.
I took some off white twine and threaded it through the heart doily.  The I made a bow
with the remaining twine.


I then stamped my sentiment using Modern Gilding Powders in Gothic Black.  Once again, 
I used a hybrid black ink that stays wet a bit longer instead of clear embossing
ink.  It gives such a nice clean image.   Time to assemble my card.
I glued the doily on flat just off to the side and trimmed off the overhang.  Then I
used foam tape to adhere the stamped onsie.  I also cut out a few of the medallions
from the patterned paper and used them on the inside of the card and on the envelope.  
 I added a few enamel dots and it was done!

I Love You Alphabet

Quietfire Design Gentle Thoughts and Grid Background stamps / Dragon Berry Modern Gilding Powder / Valentine's Card

Good morning from Alberta! Kim here with a quick card share today! I was thinking Valentine's Day when I put this card together but it would be equally useful for an anniversary card!

I don’t know about you, but I can often over complicate a project and get caught up with too much product in front of me! I challenged myself to keep this simple!

The Gentle Thoughts stamp from Quietfire Design has long been a favourite and is the focus of my card!

Quietfire Design Gentle Thoughts and Grid Background stamps / Dragon Berry Modern Gilding Powder / Valentine's Card

Using a light ink colour, I stamped the Grid Background onto some white cardstock. Using Distress Oxide, I stamped my alphabet/quote over the grid and embossed with Dragon Berry Modern Gilding Powder. This fine powder grabs the tiny details of the images and adds beautiful texture!

I was lucky enough to have some papers from the Prima Darcene Collection. The colours play nicely with the Dragon Berry Gilding Powder. It was an easy decision to use it as a a supporting layer to my card! From the same collection, I used a chipboard heart!
