I started with the sentiment, making it big, then adding a few butterflies around it. Then I printed it and used my Copic markers to color it.

My first card features Hey Beautiful from Gracielle Designs and Celebration Sparkles from Wow Embossing Powder.  To start I opened Word and pasted the flower and leaves, then resized them.

Next, I printed them out and colored the flower with my Copic markers. I fussy cut the flowers and leaves. For a sentiment I used one from Retro Hello that I had already printed but never used.

For my background I mixed the Celebration glitter and clear transparent paste together. Then with Funky Fossil Nouveau Tile stencil I slathered on my glitter paste! I've been using glitter with the transparent paste a few times now and I am really liking it!! A great way to use glitter that you already have! I have found that the more shiny the glitter the better the result!!

After the paste was dry, I adhered the flower and leaves with liquid adhesive. Then I trimmed up the sentiment a little and adhere that to the card.

Hello!!

I'm popping in today with a card featuring the newest digital stamp set at Graciellie Designs - Retro Hello!  A fabulous retro telephone image with some great sentiments!! A fun stamp set to have on hand when you want to send a hello!!

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - Graciellie Designs

I started my card by adding the phone cord image to a Word document, then I resized it. Next, I copied and pasted many of the cord image and arranged them around to create a background for an A2 size cards.

Then I added the phone image and resized it. I printed them both out and then used my Copic to color them up. I printed a sentiment to use on my card, but later found that I couldn't really get it to fit on my card base in a way I liked!

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - Graciellie Designs

Next, I used a stitched rectangle to cut out the phone cord panel and added it to a black card base. Like I mentioned above I couldn't get a layout I liked with the sentiment I printed, so instead I pulled out some glitter alphabet stickers.

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - Graciellie Designs

I added the alphabet stickers at the bottom of the panel to spell out Hello. Then I added a strip of black card stock across the card. Last, I added the colored phone image to the card with foam tape.
