How Guilty are You?
 I remember a FTD Florist ad that had 3 red rose bouquets each one larger than the last, from a single stem rose to 3 dozen.
The tag line was
"How guilty are you?"
This years challenge gives you plenty to work with!
I stamped and quilted a cuff for the bubbly, decoupaged and doilied the box of chocolates and embellished and beaded a hat band !


The cuff could also be worn on your wrist. It's double sided depending on your mood.





Stamps are from the Quietfire Have I Told You Lately set and Life Journey and Words of Love sets.
I used fabric inks and Fabric tac glue and Glitter Ritz to color the hearts. The inks and glue stay soft when dry.



 The candy box is painted, decoupaged with doilies and stamped with Versafine Crimson Red and thermal embossed clear.
I made a bunch of roses that didn't make the cut.
(scroll up to see them here)
You'll have to stop by to find out what is inside!



The flirty cloche was hand dyed and felted by Leslie Owens of Nice Threads{hop on over to her FB page and give her some love!}. I added the band made of vintage linen, hand tatted lace and the border stamp. The hearts are colored with Stardust Pen.

I hope the above will encourage you to try Quietfire stamps and join us in the Queen of Hearts Challenge.

To share some more love, below,

  2. Your projects are all so pretty and original. Stamping on the fabric gives the images a very soft pretty quality. I like how you cut the images and sewed them onto the cuff and the stamped band for the hat is just darling.
    Thanks for sharing the great video! I love tutorials. :)
