CHA Sneak: Dreamscape Day 3

Greetings! Hope your weekend is going splendidly! We are back with some more beautiful inspiration today for you from Theresa and Melin with one of our newest lines, "Dreamscape"!

All month long we are also featuring the Spellbinder Grand Calibur and dies on our projects. Please let us know if you have any questions or would like to see any tips or techniques further explained! You can email for any questions.


Hi everyone, Theresa here and I want to wish a belated Happy New Year to everyone!

Well, I have a fun card I made (shhhh, it's for my Dear Daughter, lol) and I had the privilege of getting to use some of the new releases for CHA from Quick Quotes and the paper lines I used is Dreamscape!

I also got to use my Grand Calibur from Spellbinders that all of us gals on the Design Team were lucky to receive from Spellbinders (Thank You Spellbinders for an Amazing Machine!)

I used a couple of Spellbinders dies for this card, the Scalloped Edge Frame with flower accents, Sprightly Sprockets (designed by Donna Salazar) and Ribbon Banners. Some of the sprockets I used I turned into flowers, pretty cute huh, and versatile (how's that for thinking outside the box, lol!) I also inked everything with Very Berry Powderpuff Chalk Ink and popped everything for some extra dimension and some added pizzazz! I used some yellow ric rac to bring out the yellow in the dreamscape papers and the stamped image is from Cloud 9 Design.

Here is a side view of the card for a better view of the die cuts and dimension.

And yet another view of the dimension!

Well I know you are all going to be pretty excited for the new releases for CHA! We are going to be highlighting them this month so make sure you come back to get your sneak peeks! We will also be highlighting our Spellbinders Grand Calibur so keep your eyes peeled on the Quick Quotes Blog for all your Inspiration!

((Hugs)) and Take Care, Theresa


Good morning crafty friends, Melin here! Today’s project is showcasing the wonderful new line from Quick Quotes.

It’s called Dreamscape and it is very pretty to say the least. It is filled with beautiful double-sided paper as well as coordinating vellum quotes and a great new product called Vellum Silhouettes. Here is my project:

love sweet love layout

Here is a close up shot to show the beautiful butterfly. I purposely didn’t do a thing to it. I wanted it to just be the subtlest of accents. It is layered on top of the pretty hearts that I cut from my Grand Calibur and the Classic Scalloped Hearts Dies from Spellbinders.

Here is a close up shot of the Ribbon Banners die I used. It is adhered to the ribbon and the ribbon is adhered to the edges of the matte. This way, when I put a photograph in, it will easily slide underneath. Also notice the tiny little hearts. Those are the “negative” pieces from the Contemporary Hearts Pendants spellbinders die set

Here is a shot of the vellum silhouette. I decided I wanted to “color” it with my Copic Markers. It worked like a charm. The copics didn’t bleed through and dried very quickly. Also, there was no feathering or bleeding. So, it is wonderful with your copics!

These are both so beautiful! I love all of the dimension and "pop" on the top project, and that vellum is to die for on the bottom LO! Thank you so very much!

Melin and Theresa, these are just stunning! I wasn't sure when I saw the first 2 sneaks if there would be a lot of color in this new line and I have my answer now! They are gorgeous and just what I have been wanting to see more of in the QQ products. I like the subtlety of the blacks and creams and other more earthy and neutral palettes a lot but I really love the likes of Julie Je T'aime and Saavy Davvy even more. I'm dying to get my hands on these! Thanks for the inspiration, ladies!

Beautiful card for my daughters...
Loving the fun stuff....
Colors are melding well together.

I like to see samples with the layouts with photo's. I wonder if black and white or what kinda photo to put with layout... I am a little challenged that way , but I bet I am such a simple scrapper...
