Quietfire Design 2017 Queen of Hearts Blog Hop! ATC love and Giveaway!

Welcome to the Quietfire Design's 2017 Queen of Hearts Blog Hop!
This week we're celebrating the release of the newest dies, stencils and stamps from
 Quietfire Design by sharing our best projects! 

Gracias/Hola die
You are-stamp set

Finding myself sweetheart deficient, I created a non-traditional
ATC set.





Four very different cards all containing the same stamps and die. with watercolor handpainted backgrounds.
Above normal temps inspired these echinacea flowers from a seed packet.

Mountains are my constant inspiration, and this very full moon!

Recent sunsets and rise have been spectacular!

Just for fun! The paint left on my desk!
When in doubt, add googly eyes!

Very pretty Robyn. Love the backgrounds, especially first & last.

I love your use of color blends! Your cards have inspired me to try more bold blends of background colors! I also love the softer blends you have created. The way you have made the word Gracias the focal point on the cards is great. Gives one lots of food for thought for other projects using your techniques.
