"Love" pretty in pink card

Hello Crafty Friends!

It is my day to post at Quietfire Creations and I am sharing a pretty in pink "Love" card using Quietfire Creations beautiful "Love" die,
Love - Metal Cutting Die
Excluding the "Love" die cut, all of the papers used were ivory card stock.  A wonderful medium, Cosmic Shimmer Metallic Gilding Polish (color "Blossom") was used to add the metallic pink luster to the ivory card stock.
Card Instructions:
  1. Create a tent fold card from ivory card stock.
  2. Cut ivory card stock smaller than front of card base.  Apply gilding polish.
  3. After gilding polish is dry (it dries in a zip!), apply gold marker along edges.  Mount to card base.
  4. Die cut ivory card stock.  Mount to base.
  5. Emboss ivory card stock.  Lightly apply gilding polish.  Note: the larger the gaps in between the raised areas, the more likely you will get gilding polish in non-embossed areas.  
  6. Die cut with oval die and mount to card.
  7. Die cut oval frame.  Apply gilding polish.  Add gold marker along edges.
  8. Die cut "Love" using ivory card stock and gold card stock.  Slightly offset both die cuts and mount to card using liquid adhesive.
  9. Create triple ivory bow.  Mount using liquid adhesive.
  10. Create three roses of different size. (Or take roses from your crafty stash.)  Apply gilding polish as desired.  (I applied polish evenly over the entire large rose and just on the edges of the smaller roses.)
  11. Add crystal gems and Sitckles, if desired.

Thank you for stopping by!  I do hope you enjoyed the pretty in pink "Love" card.
Have a happy, crafty day!
Big Hugs,

"Only from the heart can you touch the sky"

Hello Crafty Friends!

Last weekend it was my turn to post at Elizabeth Craft Designs and Valentine's Day was the theme of the project.  Unlike yesterday's posted card, this card is considered clean and simple.  The hearts and sweet quote are from Suzanne Cannon's stamp set, Love & Hearts:
A balloon was created using two of the hearts stamps.
The quote is too sweet!
 For card instructions, please feel free to hop on over to the ECD post.  :)
Thank you for stopping by!
Have a happy, crafty day.
Big Hugs,

"Nothing can be truer than fairy wisdom"

Hello Crafty Friends!

It may be January but my thoughts have turned to spring.  I love the beauty of spring gardens as they are full of bright bulbs and cheep-cheep-cheeping birds.  Spring garden life is captivating.  Seeing the earth awakening from the winter sleep and new plants bursting from the soil carpet is amazing.  Life is truly magical.

Garden magic inspired today's card.  I wanted to make something bright, beautiful and magical.  Fairies are definitely all three and Suzanne's fairy stamp set, Nothing can be truer than fairy wisdom, was the focal point of the card front.

Nothing Can Be Truer, Set of 2 - Mounted
The card was created and shared on the Quietfire Creations blog.  Instructions with photos are available on the blog post.
The quote is so sweet!  I can't help but smile when I read it.
A list of all product used is shown at the end of this post.  It was fun to create!

Thanks for stopping by!  I do hope you enjoyed the happy card.
Have a happy, crafty day!

"You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream"

Happy New Year, Crafty Friends!  May your 2018 be full of love, happiness and beautiful wonderment.

It is that time when many of us are setting goals or dreaming dreams for the new year.  You may be setting a goal to be healthier or to find inner peace.  Perhaps you are hoping to save money for a trip or planning to organize your home.  A desire to create without limits may be your crafty dream.  Whatever you choose for 2018, remember that you can do it- and smile when you imagine your goals being completed.  As Quietfire Design's stamp states:  The best thing I ever did was believe in me.

I am kicking off the new year with a project at Quietfire Creations. The card combines the inspirational stamped quote, You are never too old
You Are Never Too Old - Mounted
with the lovely A Way With Words Dream die.
Dream - Metal Cutting Die
The stamp and die set are a sweet pairing.  Together they can be used to create projects to encourage yourself or others.
Feel free to visit the Quietfire Creations blog for more project photos.

If you love the stamp and die pairing then I have some good news for you: the A Way With Words dies are 15% off right now.  Suzanne has a captivating collection of dies for your projects that could become your next favorite dies.
