"If You Don't Believe in Miracles"

Hello Crafty Friends!

Today is my day to post at Quietfire Design and I wanted to use a stamp from one of my favorite Quietfire Stamp sets, If you don't believe in miracles:
If You Don't Believe in Miracles - Set of 3 Stamps
This set has been used on many of my crafty projects and will continue to do so.  Usually I use lighter or pastel colors with the stamps from this set but this time I was in an inky finger vintage mood.  By the way nothing was safe in my craft room...if it was within reach it was inked.  There are numerous inky paper or ribbon pieces that are ready for a new project!
I like the colors popping out from behind the Sizzix Thinlits Mixed Media die cut corner (Peeled Paint, Tumbled Glass, Scattered Straw, Vintage Photo).  The colors are a nice contrast to the colors on the Spellbinders Postage die set (Abandoned Coral, Scattered Straw, Vintage Photo).  The seam binding was dyed using Distress Stains in all of the colors except Vintage Photo.  Yes, Stickles was added to all of the fussy cut butterflies.  Hellllooooo glitter!
Isn't it the sweetest sentiment?   It is so uplifting and true.  Definitely puts a beautiful perspective to a day!

Thank you very much for stopping by!  Feel free to hop on over to the Quietfire Creations blog for more inspiration!

Big happy crafty hugs,
Kathy Jo
