The Woods Would be Very Silent - Card

Hello Everyone and happy Friday, Terre here hoping you have a safe and wonderful Holiday. Here in the United States Monday is Labor Day and that means an extra day off of work! I hope you have been enjoying all of the wonderful new stamps you have been seeing here at Quietfire Design, for this beautiful card I am using "The Woods Would Be Very Silent".

I fussy cut around the cute little birds, colored them with some Copic Markers and attached them to my Spellbinders S4-328 Foliage die template die cuts.

The base of my card is Spellbinders Detailed Scallop Card Creator and embellished with some Want2Scrap 72 Count Black Pearls. I attached all of my card pieces using my Beacon Adhesives Zip Dry. Thank you for stopping by my post today and I hope you are loving this amazing stamp creation as much as I am, so go get creative and use "The Woods Would Be Very Silent". Crafty Smiles, Terre

Thinking of You Shabby Chic style...

Hi Everyone it's Teresa again sharing a new 
Shabby Chic styled card I made with the 
Gentle Thoughts Thinking of You stamp set # 6365

To start creating the card I first stamped the sentiment 
with Vintage Sepia Versafine Ink and embossed
it with detail clear embossing powder on a Spellbinders
Standard Circles Large and added tiny white pearls.
Under that I Cut/Embossed a Picot Edge Circle in white
and layered that over Decorative Labels Twenty-Two in white again.
Mixing old and new dies is really fun and it's a perfect chance 
to get all those dies out and use them again and again.

I love to sew and wanted to get my machine out and
start using it on my projects more so I roughed up the edges
with a distressing tool and sewed around the edges of the 
back round and the banner and added in some pretty lace.

The peach flowers I created out of matching paper
with Spellbinders Bitty Blossom die set and inked them
 up just a little with peachy/pink ink to match better.
The stamp really goes beautiful on this card don't you think?

Here are a few other supplies that you will need to make the card.
MyMindsEye- Miss Caroline 6x6 paper pad
Crafty Sparkles ink chunky clear, adhesive, glue dots,
scissors, paper trimmer, peach thread, sewing machine
and tiny white pearls.

If Nothing Ever Changed - Card

Yogi here, my turn on the Quietfire Creations blog. This time I'm doing a technique using Shimmer Sheetz, Sookwang tape and glitter that I was taught several years ago by Els from ecraft designs. I haven't done it in quite some time and came across a video she's done that was really informative and well done. So here is the result from watching that video. Hope you give it a try. Click on images to enlarge. Enjoy

I used both pieces of the glittered background for this card, one for the butterflies and one for the background for the quote.

side view
I side folded my white 5"w x 7"h card. Adhered a piece of textured cardstock (Ruche) edge to edge.

So as per video, I embossed a piece of Shimmer Sheetz (color: mauve Iris) using Craft Concepts "Wings" folder. I then applied 6"wide Sookwang tape onto 110# white cardstock. Removed the release paper and pressed my embossed Shimmer Sheetz onto the sticky surface. Used a rubber brayer to press/burnish the Shimmer Sheetz onto the sticky surface. Then carefully pulled the Shimmer Sheetz away from the sticky surface, leaving the "Iris" layer on the sticky surface. Sprinkled Glitter Ritz micro fine glitter "Warm Highlights" all over and burnished well. Returned the excess glitter to the jar.

Did this same process with the other side of the Shimmer Sheetz. PS you get 3 workable pieces that can be used in various ways on cards.

So now I have two background glitter pieces. One I layered onto a magenta colored cardstock. Inked up my quote stamp with Versafine Black Onyx and pressed down well onto the glittered sheet and clear embossed, being careful not to over heat. Adhered this layer onto my main card

The other background I die cut the LARGE butterfly (Memory Box "Finn"), it has a 5" wing span so it's large... Cut the solid underneath piece from white pearlescent cardstock and adhered the two elements together at the body only. Then used a black Sharpie pen to color the body. Added some pearl tipped stamen for the antennae.

I had some left over areas on the glitter sheet so die cut a bunch of mini butterflies using the drop outs from the Memory Box "Butterfly Delights".

Happy Birthday Card

Good day all, Jutta here, as guest Designer for Quietfire Design and today I'd like to share a tent fold Birthday Card with you .

To make this card, cut an Ivory card stock base 11” x 4-1/4” and fold it in half.
 Ink around the edge with Forest Moss Distress Ink and set aside.
Cut a piece of Blue card stock to 5-1/2”x3-3/4” for a mat and distress the edges.
  Cut the Hydrangea paper to 4-3/4”x3-1/2” from Webster Pages 6x6 paper pad  and ink around the edge with Forest Moss Distress Ink and adhere it to mat.
 Now give a half twist to a piece of the Solid Wrinkled 1-1/2” Ivory Ribbon, fold to back of mat, adhere securely and attach this panel to the base.
Use Forest Moss Distress Ink to stamp the wonderful Happy Birthday sentiment from Quietfire Design set Happy Family Days  on a scrap of ivory card stock, then die cut with Spellbinders Nestabilties LabelsTwenty-two - one in ivory and 
 a second in blue card stock to use for a mat. Cut the blue panel in half and attached it to the back of ivory cardstock piece.
  Ink all edges with Forest Moss Distress Ink and embellish with pearls. 
Attach this panel using Pop Dots centered on the ribbon.
 To complete the card I used the Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen  to colour over the flower heads and give a hint of sparkle. 

 Thanks for allowing me to share, and make your day a crafty one!

Quietfire Flip Flops - New Digital Cutting File

These are just too fun! It's Suzanne here again today. I laughed and laughed the first day I made these.  I left tiny little ones around to see what the boys would say.  They ignored them! Can you believe it?  Okay, they never confessed to noticing them, but I wish I'd been a fly on the wall when they found them.

The Flip Flop cutting file contains one svg file for digital cutting, one manual cutting template for hand cutting, one low resolution jpg and our Terms of Use information.  The manual cutting template is for the "basic" flip flop which is approximately 3.5" and that is the size shown on this 5x7" card.   
The quote was stamped with Brilliance Pearlescent Lime which is a fabulous colour!  I'm not so much a citrus gal, but I'm looking for excuses to use this.  It's just the right amount of contrast with the card colour and not too light or too dark.

The Summer Lemonade die was cut from Arches 140lb Hot Press Watercolour Paper (the calligrapher's staple) and coloured with Tombow markers.

The collection of baby flip flops measure 1.75" long each.  I suggest not making the straps from a heavy cardstock when you're making them that small.
This next example is cut from Bo Bunny Gabrielle paper - love it!  I used the Silhouette Adhesive Magnetic paper for the sole, so this flip flop is a magnet!  It's larger than on the previous card, measuring 5" long.  It will certainly be a conversation piece on your fridge!

What kind of flip flops will you make?  Funky?  High fashion?  Trendy?  Will you write love messages on them?  Will you tuck them into your little ones' lunch boxes?  Will you wear them on your fingers and dance around the house? (we want video proof of that!)
Happy Flip Flopping!
Here are the thumbnail links to the products used.

Love Where You’re At Journal Page!

Good morning!  Sherry here today and I have a journal page to share using Love Where You’re At and lots of Spellbinders die templates used to make stencils.


I started by applying a couple layers of gesso to the pages, and when dry added a few strips of linen hinging tape.  Base colors of paint were brushed on and texture was added by applying other colors of paint with a sea sponge.  Stencils were used to apply more color, which was dabbed on using the sea sponge.   Spellbinders CrissCross Expandable Pattern was used to die cut a stencil with chipboard and a light paint was dabbed on for even more contrast and texture. 

The heart is a stencil die cut from chipboard with Spellbinders Classic Heart and then paint was sponged on with a sea sponge.  The heart was then outlined with black marker.


To create the work “Home”, chipboard was painted black and then die cut with Spellbinders Font One – Upper Case.   Once glued down to the journal page, white dots were added with a paint brush. 


The house was made by die cutting some scrap paper with Spellbinders Long Rectangles for the base, and Squares LG for the roof.    The square was then cut in half with the chimney being cut from the extra side.


The sentiment was stamped in StazOn Jet Black.


That’s all for me today!  Thanks for stopping by and joining me.
