Believe in Yourself

Encouragement Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Quietfire Design - If You Don
Hi there friends, I’m tickled to share one of the new Quietfire Design stamps I received last week.  I rarely buy wood mounted stamps any more because I just don’t have the room to store them but I do like rubber cling – *a lot*.  If it is just red rubber, I simply put some double sided tape on my clear block to hold the stamp in place but I really, really like red rubber mounted to cling foam.  All that to say when I got my goodies in the mail I literally squealed when I saw that the stamps were mounted on the gray foam.  This week I’ve been playing and there are so many feel good sentiments in the seven new sets Quietfire is offering – I went straight to the If You Don’t Believe in Miracles set.

Here’s how I made it – step by step:

Starting out with a cardbase 5-1/2″x 7-1/4″,  I added a panel from Kraft cut to 5-1/8″ x 6-1/2″ and a mat from cream cut to 5″ x 6-3/8″, adhered to base with foam tape.  I added a new panel from kraft cut to 4-5/8″ x 5-3/4″ and a mat from cream cut to 4-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ and embossed with Spellbinders Infinity.  I took a die cut of  Spellbinders Adorning Labels Twenty Five and Spellbinders Labels Twenty Five and scored it in half lengthwise and straddled it across my panel before attaching with foam tape.  Next I added a series of three ovals, Spellbinders Elegant Ovals, Spellbinders Floral Ovals and Spellbinders Classic Ovals SM with the stamped sentiment on the latter.  I finished off with the curly flourish from Spellbinders Jewel Flowers and Flourishes.  I added a bow, a pearl pin and three flat four petal flowers.

I just love the sentiment, how uplifting!  Who doesn’t need this sweet reminder every now and again?

    Just something about the added kraft paper adds so much to this! If I have said it once, I am a pink freak so here we go again, I am definitely a happy “pink” camper.

    Becca, as always this is simply beautiful. I do have a question though, I noticed your peg bow maker is no longer for sale at Our Daily Bread Designs. Is there any chance you’ll release the video alone or put bow tying tutorials back on YouTube?ReplyCancel
