Here is the card I created featuring Quietfire stamps and Spellbinders dies.

All of the paper is white cardstock.

For the background I inked up an Impressibilities stencil, embossed the paper by running through the Wizard and highlighted with Brilliance and Distress inks.Colors used throughout: antique linen, dried marigold, wild honey, spun sugar,peeled paint,pine needle and tea die.

If you are new to Quitefire stamps, I am excited to introduce you to them. Hand Lettered by Suzanne Cannon and deeply etched, unmounted rubber, Quietfire Designs has a quote or sentiment for every occasion. Any card from Quietfire is an occasion by itself! Unmounted rubber is easy to use and versatile for all surfaces and I promise you this rubber will enable you to Create Without Limits!

The quote is from the Garden Quote Marks. (You can see how these stamps create fab bookmarks here) The little book is Spellbinders Labels 7. I colored the die cut with inks, and stamped some script on, stamped the quote in versfine vintage sepia, then thermal embossed clear; distressed the edges,sewed a 'binding' and mounted it on a die cut piece of fun foam for dimension.

The bottom border is a section of the Rose Border Grand, that I cut, embossed and used the die as a stencil to color it with distress inks. Colors used: antique linen, dried marigold, wild honey, spun sugar and tea die.

Shout out to my sister in ink Becca for the silk ribbon rose, I inked the ribbon with wild honey and spun sugar Distress Ink using the foam ink blending tool after I applied the tape and it was still wrapped on the cardboard strip.

Inside I stamped the flourishes and dragonflies in Versamark and colored with Pan Pastels.

I used a larger Label 7 to highlight the writing area.

Somewhere on this card i doodled with Stardust pens-can't finish a project without them!Link

    ReplyDelete
  71. I kept looking at this Spellbinders set and wondered what I could possibly do with it. ("No wonder you can't figure anything out," says the DH, "it's not a label, it's a book.")

    Well, of course it's a book! And it's so darned perfect with Suzanne's lovely stamp.

    Beautiful, beautiful job!
    Best Wishes,
