2017 Queen of Hearts blog hop

Welcome to the Quietfire Design's 2017 Queen of Hearts Blog Hop.  This week we're celebrating the release of the new dies, stencils and stamps from Quietfire Design by sharing our best projects!!

Today i am sharing a card that i made with the new stamp release called "Always Believe".  I really love the sentiment on this card and it's such a nice one to send to a friend or colleague to give them a little encouragement in a tough time.

For my card i started with a plain white base and then cut a smaller bit of dark blackish grey to go over it.  Then i used a die to cut the pink rose backround paper and attached that with 3D Foam squares to the card base. 

To make the top i cut it with a die and stamped my image in the center with black ink.  Then i embossed it with clear and let it dry for a few minutes.  To bring out the edges I used a sponge applicator and inked around the inside edges of the space with the die over it to slightly darken it.  And to make it pop out even more i die cut a smaller piece of the blackish grey paper and put it under the sentiment. 

And i finished it with a few tiny rhinestones, some pink folliage and a pretty black satin bow trimmed in silver to match the rhinestones.  

To see the entire new release be sure and check out the "what's new" on the website...

Getting ready for Valentines...

I am so happy for the start of this new year and thankfully one of the first holidays is Valentines and it's my favorite one.  I love all the papers and other goodies you get to create with and it's been fun creating for my DT with all of their gorgeous products too.  So today i have a pretty card that i 
made with a stamp set I got from Penny Black last year.  It's filled with lots of fun sayings so i am sure i will have more to share in the next couple of weeks.  

The papers are from Graphic 45's Mon Amour set and the flowers are a mixture of things in my stash that went really good with this really gorgeous paper line.  I love the muted colors and prints, they are the perfect size and colors to mix and match.

The dies i used are of course from Spellbinders.  I used the basic circle and lacy circles to cut the paper and the tiny doily is from Ruby Rock-its new fundamentals.  The stamp fit perfectly in the center of it.  I hope that you like it.  

Thanks for dropping by and i hope that you have a really nice weekend!!

Time for Tea and a blog hop too...

Hi and welcome to our first Craft Hoarders blog hop of the new year 2017... I hope that your holidays were really fun and you all got lots of time off to spend doing fun things with family and friends.  I spent lots of time at the castle this year which was really fun but did get a few moments to spend with my family to relax so it was a wonderful holiday for me.

If you started the hop in the beginning then you should have arrived from Bonnie's blog....

Today i have a few projects to share that i did for Ruby Rock-it's Faded Empire Collection.  This beautiful line was one of my favorites and i went a little crazy making up some things for a tea party and would also work great for Valentines. The paper line had lots of tags and other fun embellishments and gorgeous victorian papers to create cards, tags and boxes with.  All the fancy edges i have on them are from Spellbinders dies... i have so many of them it's really nice to be able and use them for lots of projects i have....but you can use punches to achieve some of the same ideas.

These projects are my favorites.  Not only for the pretty colors in the papers but also for the pretty princess diecuts that they have to go with the paper line.  It was really fun to do this.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to finish the hop by stopping over to 
Barbara's blog... Each of us is giving a random prize so be sure and leave a comment for a chance to win.  Here is a photo of my prize from Ruby Rock-it!!  I will announce the winner on the 9th and it's only open to US residents :) 

So it's time again to hop on over to Barbara's blog to see what she has to share!

For the rest of my life...

Hi again and thanks so much for stopping over today.  I have another Quietfire Design card today to share and this one i also made with one of the new Wedding lines from Ruby Rock-it.  It's a really pretty line of paper called New York and it's filled with lots of pale shades of aqua, black and white and went perfect with the stamp i chose to use for today.

To start my card I found a gate card base in my stash that was white so that is how i began.  I cut rectangles of printed paper to fit both sides of the gates and then made a smaller square to fit inside and match the die that i was using for the sentiment.  I cut 2 layers of the fancy die in white and put 3D foam dots in-between them to make the lace stand out more.  Then before i glued it to the base i wrapped a band of white ribbon around the card and secured it in the back.  The flowers and pearls i added last as my finishing touches.  The sentiment really speaks for itself i think..... it's beautiful.

You can find the stamp in the Quietfire Design store called "For the Rest of my Life".  I love Suzannes' stamps and dies... the sentiments are always so heartfelt and come out so beautiful when you create things with them.  And it's calligraphy and i love that part too!!

I also used Ruby Rock-its new "New York" Collection and you will have to stop over
and see all the other gorgeous things they have new for all those weddings you have coming up.

Thanks again for stopping over and i have lots more to share so i hope to see you soon :)

Autumn is my favorite season...

It's been long time since i have done a post here on my blog.  With my mom passing away and my daughter getting married to the love of her life 2 weeks ago my life was pretty busy to say the least.  But i had time the other day and was working on using some of the new Quietfire Design stamps that i just got so i thought i would start sharing a few with you all.

I wanted just something simple for my card.  I love to walk out hiking among all the trees in fall and see all the beautiful colors they are and how they crunch under your steps.  So i just cut a few leaves from metals i had in my stash and then put them on a simple white back round matted in colors of fall.  For the stamp i used Momento ink in Expresso truffle and inked around the tan card stock in Gingerbread to make it stand out.  

The stamp is really pretty and they are others in the times of each season so i am getting on top of those and creating something fun with each of them to share with you all soon.  

If you would love to buy the stamp be sure and stop over to the Quietfire Design store and

Thanks so much for stopping over and be sure and check back again soon.

Hoarders Hop for Fall today....

Hi everyone and welcome to our Hoarders hop for fall.  We have lots of fun projects to share with you so be sure and stop on each of our blogs to see some fun inspiration for the months ahead.  I am decorating for Halloween and fall so i have a few things that I whipped up this week.

If you started the hop from the beginning you should have come from Ambers blog....

I have lots and lots of fun Halloween things in my stash so for the first one i dug out some pretty green and orange papers with a fun tag.  I had these really neat eyelash yarn in my stash too and it looked alot like creepy spider webs so i tied that on for bows.

And for this one i got out some of my favorite Graphic 45 papers and made this fun little Halloween card.  I love the colors of this paper collection too and all of it goes great with what i already have so it's going to look really good when i decorate this week.  The bottles i did too with a digital design from Crafty Secrets Halloween file .. These were really fun and cheap to make and i even found some creepy charms that i tied on the tops to add even more Halloween spookiness.

And for this project i has a really neat Kaisercraft stamp about clocks so i worked my papers to go with it.  It's Halloween paper but it would be a great card to give someone just to think of them.

And here too i dug into my charm box and found a cute clock to tie at the bottom.  I know the perfect person to give this one to.  

So it's time to hop along again.... be sure to hop to Donna's blog next
And back to Gloria's if you want to start at the beginning..

Thanks for stopping by and have a fun and crafty week.
