Then I inked up a scene on a white panel, using some ink and a Newtons Nook ground and grass stencil. I used a little light blue ink for the sky.

For my second card I stamped the tiny mouse and the rabbit laying down. I used my Copics to color the images and then I stamped the sentiment below them.

Graciellie Designs - Beautiful Day

Hello!!

I'm stopping by with a card I made with new Graciellie Designs digital stamps!! If you are a fan of poppies, this set is for you!! Ready to go cluster or all you need to make your own! It's just gorgeous!! It's called Beautiful Day!

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - Graciellie Designs

I started with the cluster of poppies, resizing it in Word and adding a sentiment. I printed it out and then I got to coloring it! I picked out some colors that are a challenge to blend, following The Coloring Challenge Road Trip class available at Online Card Classes! Kathy Racoosin has lots of coloring tips and tricks in this class!!

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - Graciellie Designs

Not only did I challenge myself to use 3 colors that are not normally used to blend with, but also used a dark purple colored pencil to add a little more depth to the nooks and cranies of the poppies!

I used a stitched rectangle die to cut out my colored poppies and sentiment. From my stash I pulled out a flower pattern done in white and grey, adhering it to a white card base. Then I added the colored panel with fun foam. I wanted to use foam tape, but all I had was lots of small dots, but the panel is large and would be tedious!! Instead I die cut white fun foam with the same die and then adhered it to my panel and then to the card base! So easy!

Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Graciellie Designs - Letter Board Quotes

Hello!!

Today I have a new card made with a NEW awesome digital stamp set from Graciellie Designs,  Letter Board Quotes!!!  This is an awesome set, so on trend and really you could use it in sooo many ways!!

Kraft Paper Stamps - Graciellie Designs - Tonic Studios

For this card I decided to make a background with the letter boards. I add one to a Word document, added a sentiment to the board. Then I grouped the two images and then resized it. When I was happy with the size I copy and pasted several to create the background.

Next, I printed it out and used my Copic markers to color the boards, going with a colorful multi color look! Who says letter boards have to be black!!! :)

Then I pulled out some word dies from my stash and liked one from Tonic Studios, Sent With Love. I cut it with a silver glitter card stock and black card stock. Then I adhered the two layers, slightly off setting the top black layer.

When the sentiment was dry I added foam adhesive and add it to my card. Last I added a few black rhinestones!

Graciellie Designs - Love is in the Air

Hello!!

Today I'm sharing a card featuring a new digital stamp set from Graciellie Designs - Love is in the Air! It's time to start thinking about love and valentine's! And this set is perfect!

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - Graciellie Designs

I started by opening the wooden heart and I Heart Sentiment in a Word document. I decided to make my own pattern paper with the image and sentiment, so I scaled them both down a bit and played around the with placement. When I was happy with it, I printed it out on white card stock.

Then I used my Copic markers to color the wooden hearts. I trimmed down the panel and added it to a white card base.

From my stash I found a gold glitter heart sticker, added some baby powder to the back so it was not linger a sticky. I also pulled out a few red buttons. Then I pulled out some twine and wrapped it into a small  circle.

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - Graciellie Designs

I placed the twine circle on the panel, placed the heart on top, then added a few buttons around it. I liked how it looked, so I used some liquid adhesive to adhere it all down. Last, I added a small red heart sticker to the gold heart.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a great day!
