2017 Queen of Hearts blog hop


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

Today i am sharing a card that i made with the new stamp release called "Always Believe".  I really love the sentiment on this card and it's such a nice one to send to a friend or colleague to give them a little encouragement in a tough time.


For my card i started with a plain white base and then cut a smaller bit of dark blackish grey to go over it.  Then i used a die to cut the pink rose backround paper and attached that with 3D Foam squares to the card base. 

To make the top i cut it with a die and stamped my image in the center with black ink.  Then i embossed it with clear and let it dry for a few minutes.  To bring out the edges I used a sponge applicator and inked around the inside edges of the space with the die over it to slightly darken it.  And to make it pop out even more i die cut a smaller piece of the blackish grey paper and put it under the sentiment. 

And i finished it with a few tiny rhinestones, some pink folliage and a pretty black satin bow trimmed in silver to match the rhinestones.  


To see the entire new release be sure and check out the "what's new" on the website...
