Welcome to the 2015 Queen of Hearts Blog Hop!

Welcome to our final day of the blog hop!  I have something pretty plain and simple.  You know, calligraphers think the lettering and words are the center of the universe, so I'm going with that today! 
Here is my contribution.






Before I forget, let me say I am absolutely delighted by how well this stamp stamps (say that 10 times!).   And just in case you need a little translation of Charles Dickens' quote, when he says "a temper that never tires" he is referring to having patience!  I think I need to use this quote to make something for the wall in my kitchen.....







Here is the simple supply list.



Instructions:
  1. Cut Rouge cardstock to 7x10" and emboss with Dainty Dots embossing folder using the Grand Calibur. Score and fold to 5x7" card base.
  2. Use the Silhouette Cameo to resize the flourished heart from the Flourished Heart card to 6 7/8" high and cut from Solar White cardstock.
  3. Stamp the sentiment using Red Magic as shown. Score close to the left side of the stamped image and fold around the card.
  4. Use 3D Foam Tabs to give dimension to the heart as you attach it to the card base.

For a chance to win a Quietfire rubber stamp (Don’t be shy!) leave a comment below before midnight Sunday January 25th, 2015. A winner will be randomly chosen from my list of comments and the winner's name will be posted on Quietfire Creations shortly afterwards. If you haven't done so already, go back and leave comments on all the designers Queen of Hearts blog posts!  Here are the direct links to their posts.

  75. I love this idea of enlarging and only using part of the cut file. So much more wow factor than just the full design centered on the card front, thanks for expanding on the possibilities. I wish more designers would show variations and ideas to get more mileage from a file or stamp. I love the clean modern feel of this.

  77. Hmm, usually my comments show up when I post...I don't see mine so if this duplicates, mea culpa! It's the computer's fault!

    Clean and simple works when the design and the words do all the lifting -and this is lovely. The sentiment needs the center of attention - this is just perfect. Thanks, Suzanne!
