Quietfire Queen of Hearts Blog Hop...

Welcome to the Quietfire Design Queen of Hearts Blog Hop! Today is Day 3
of our hop and today you will be visiting Yvonne's blog first and then me....

Everyone created gorgeous projects so far and this is my contribution
 with the new stamps that were just released!


I adore this cute stamp called The Best Kiss and I have a nephew that is newly married
this summer so i decided to make a shadow box frame for them for a gift.  The picture
they have is mostly black and white so i decided to keep it really neutral and stay with cream
and silver to make the photo and the sentiment pop more.  I wanted to make it more
timeless style wise so i kept it simple with flowers and rhinestones to match the silver.


For the silver behind the sentiment i used real silver metal from Spellbinders that
you can cut with dies.  It was perfect and gave me a wonderful and classy sturdy base
for my sentiment to be attached to.  The flowers and foliage i created to match
  from Spellbinders dies too and the bling is from Want2Scrap. Oh and i also
used another fun die called Peacock feathers that i cut in silver. It looks so pretty.
 I can hardly wait to give this to them :)  I hope they like it.




And of course I had to make a matching card for the gift so i used the
same silver paper along with some white and pink cardstock.  For the sentiment
i used Brilliance Platinum Planet ink by Imagine/Tsukineko.  It matched perfect
and i love the way it glistens in the light.  The stamp is called Have a Heart and
it has the most beautiful saying from Charles Dickens on it.  I love all the flourishes
and the pretty heart at the top of the stamp. It's so pretty in silver.  The pretty pink
ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon and it too went perfectly.


For the card base itself i layered 3 Spellbinders dies.  The silver one is
called 5x7 Mystical Embrace and the next layer is Holiday Snowflakes
 that i did in pink and then for my sentiment I used Labels 28. It was fun
layering different dies and the sentiment fit perfectly on the top one.



Here is a photo of the stamp as you would buy it and the stamps
are all cling mounted so they really are easy to stamp with.
