Quietfire Queen of Hearts Blog Hop

 

Welcome to the Quietfire Design Queen of Hearts Blog Hop!

Thank you so much for stopping by and participating in the hop!  The Quietfire team has been looking forward to this week and we hope you enjoy the hop as much as we do!  Here is my contribution to the hop:
The card is using the newly released Quietfire stamp "The best kiss":
The Best Kiss - Mounted
I love the sentiment because it reminds me of my husband- we were best friends before we started dating and I often wondered about his kiss.  :)
The card details: a white tent fold card was die cut using Spellbinders Majesty dies. Red card stock was die cut using the largest die from the set.  White card stock was die cut using the largest two dies from the set.  Next, I die cut a lace heart from Spellbinders' die set Lace Hearts.  It was double heat embossed using gold embossing powder.  The lovely sentiment was heat embossed onto white card stock and fussy cut around the sentiment.  Finally, a double bow was made from satin/sheer red ribbon and adhered as shown.

  7. EXQUISITE!!! What a gorgeous way to kick off a hop! This is just so lovely in everyway.....the spectacular die cuts, the rich colors, the delicious bow, and that fabulous sentiment. My hubby and I were best friends, too, before we dated.....back over 33 years ago. Makes a good foundation for a lasting marriage. :)
