Believe in Yourself, Quietfire and Spellbinders

Hi All!

My postal person brought a fantastic package today: my new stamps from Quietfire Design!  Not only are all of the stamps awesome but some sets will now come as clings.  Yay!  I grabbed my new goodies, reluctantly did some things around the house (boring)...and then it was Welcome to Craftville...population Me.  :)

Tonight was play dedicated to the new If You Don't Believe In Miracles set.  I stamped the Believe in Yourself sentiment in Majestic Blue (Versafine) and die cut it using Spellbinders Labels One.  Blue metallic paper was dry embossed using Spellbinders Ornate Labels One.  I trimmed it to 4.25" square and used my Versamark pen on the raised areas.  White and gold embossing powder was applied.  A white butterfly (Spellbinders Les Papillions Two) was dyed using Tim Holtz Scattered Straw ink, as were the edges along the sentiment die cut.  Seam binding was dyed using Scattered Straw Distress Stain.  I cut a piece of white paper to 4 3/8" square and dyed it with Scattered Straw.  All of this was applied to a tent fold white card 4 5/8" square.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a fantastic Friday!
