Just Living Is Not Enough....


Hi To You!!!!!  So glad you've had time to pop in (or read the email if that's how you get my posts)!!!  Quietfire Design has released two new stamps that are wonderful.  HERE  is a post QF did to announce them.  

This is a standard size card.  I started with a piece of Ranger Glossy Paper, stamped the doily image (Tim Holtz) with Ranger Watermark Resist Ink, inked over the paper with Distress Inks (Mermaid Lagoon, Lucky Clover), flicked water onto the paper, blotted it with a paper towel, dried it, inked it again with Distress Inks (Mermaid Lagoon, Mowed Lawn) which darkened the color on the paper and added color to the spots left from flicking with water, flicked it again with water, blotted it, dried it, and finally stamped the quote (Just living is not enough) with Archival Ink Jet Black.  This panel is mounted onto white cardstock and then the folded card.  I've added Elizabeth Craft Designs die cuts - one of the Ribbons & Jewels cut from white cardstock backed with Clear Double Sided Adhesive, and one of the Bunch of Flowers 3 cut from Shimmer Sheetz.  I've added Glitter Dots Stickers (Elizabeth Craft Designs) along the ribbon die cut in the flower centers.

A Lovely Cardlfor a Lovely quote!
(I might be mistaken, but from the pictures it looks to me as if it is contributed to a mr Anderson, although Hans Christian''s last name was Andersen - not Anderson. Big difference as Anderson implies Swedish or American nationality, and the great storyteller was Danish through and trough. Might be worth whispering in a very friendly voice to quietfire, if they ever want to make another batch of this stamp... Quotes are always best when they are correct.)
But the card is So pretty and the tutorial superb as always !
