If not, make sure you start at the beginning over at Quick Quotes' blog so you don't miss a single chance to win one of two fun prizes up for grabs! You'll have until Sunday night to complete the hop.
Peachy Keen Stamps and Quick Quotes have partnered this weekend to bring you incredible creations from both Design Teams. You'll see how versatile our products truly are!
For my first card, I used the Mark and Sharen Love Frogs stamp set from Peachy Keen Stamps, and this beautiful French Quarter paper from Quick Quotes. The frog images were stamped on Express It Blending card with Memento tuxedo black ink, and colored with Copic markers. A little blue seam binding ribbon, rhinestones, and stickles frilled and sparkled this card in all the right places, and the "Once Upon A Time" sentiment is a beautiful vellum quote that was trimmed to fit my card. This quote went just beautifully with this image and the "Happily Ever After" stamped sentiment.
My second card also showcases some of the French Quarter double sided paper, and yet another of the vellum quotes from Quick Quotes. I have to say that this paper is wonderful to work with. It's excellent quality, and heavy weight make it just perfect for so many paper crafting projects. I REALLY love it!! When I saw this quote "Love is the dance of eternity", I thought immediately of this adorable Mistletoe Twist stamp set from Peachy Keen Stamps. These cute little gingers dancing are the perfect pairing with that sentiment.
For my final project, I went a bit more elegant with this free standing pop-up card. This view is when it's folded flat. I used the Faceless Flowers stamp sets from Peachy Keen for embellishments on this card. I stamped them with black Powder Puff Chalking Inks (available at Quick Quotes), and added black glitter for the centers. The edges of the flowers were sponged with Tim Holtz vintage photo distress ink.
Here is a photo of the card popped up. The sentiment is one of Quick Quotes Vintage Alphabet Quote cards, and also matches the French Quarter collection. Besides the flowers, ivory organza ribbon was all that was needed to finish this card.
