Welcome to the 2017 Queen of Hearts Blog Hop!

Welcome to 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 some of our favorite creations using the many goodies released.  With more beautifully lettered dies, there are so many fun combinations of phrases and sentiments you can create.  


As always, I love the simpler designs when it comes to these word dies.  They are so beautiful I just can't have anything compete with them, know what I mean?  So I opt for colors and materials when I really want them to just shine.

My first distress inks were the set of Peacock Feathers, Squeezed Lemonade, and Picked Raspberry. They are still my favorite go-to combination because they just blend beautifully together.  I started by sponging those colors with the new butterfly stencil.  I used Broken China to sponge some clouds above and Evergreen bough for a hint of green on the bottom of my layer.



I then die cut Sending and Smiles out of Shimmer Sheetz.  I backed the word die cuts with several layers of plain white card stock for for added depth. 



I love the bright and cheery result!
