Graciellie Designs - Happy Mother's Day

Hello!!

I'm popping by with a new card made with a NEW Graciellie Designs digital stamps set: Happy Mother's Day! Now is a great time to get your card done and this is the perfect set to do it with! Not only is there Mother's Day sentiment, but one for sister, aunt and grandma.


I started with the flower cluster and added it and a sentiment to a Word document. I resized them and then printed them out. Then I colored them with my Copic markers.

My plan was different then what I had planned, I dropped a marker close to the image, so I had to fussy cut the sentiment and image out.

Then I found some green glitter cardstock and trimmed it to fit a card base. I adhered a strip of black card stock, then added the colored image with foam tape. Last, I added black enamel dots scattered around the card.

Graciellie Designs - Hang In There #2

Hello!!!

Today I'm back with my second card featuring Graciellie Designs new Hang in There digital stamp set. Such a fun set with lots of different possibilities!!

In Word I added the hanging wood sign with the flower, then I added the Happy Birthday sentiment and the splatters. I printed it out and used my Spectrum Noir Colored Pencils to color the image. Then I fussy cut it out.

Next, I trimmed a piece of Bristol paper to fit a card base and used Papertrey Ink's Terracotta Tile ink pad along with Funky Fossil Nordic Star stencil. First I inked on the Terracotta, darker at the edges and lighter in the center. Then I placed the stencil on top and inked it up.

Then I added the colored image with foam tape. I added a little sparkle to the center of each star, but I forgot to get a photo of it!

Graciellie Desings - Hang In There

Hello!!

I hope everyone is doing good!! I was off from work (I work in a local hospital lab) for a couple days and I took these days and the weekend to clean my desk and start putting my stamps in a database. My mojo has been in a slump lately and this really helped me get it back! Sunday creating was so much fun!

Graciellie Designs has a new stamp set called Hang In There, a great one for the times we are living in! With my mojo back I actually made two cards, today I'm sharing one, so stay tuned later this week for the other.

I started this card with the wood and flower image and added the hang in there sentiment. I printed it from Word and then used my Spectrum Noir Colored Pencils to color it. Then I fussy cut the image out.

Next, I pulled out Crafter's Companion Clamshell Horizon die and used it to cut some black card stock. I didn't use my Gemini, rather my manual die cutting machine so the die didn;t cut all the way through, which is what I wanted. More of an impression then a cut.

I trimmed the panel and adhered it to an orange card base. Then I added the colored image with foam tape. From my stash I adhered a few orange rhinestones.

I added a couple leaves and a flower to a Word document, then resized the flower, making it very big. Then I arranged the flower and leaves around until I was happy with it. For a sentiment I added Far Away Hugs.

Next, I colored the image with my Copic markers, doing a loose and fast coloring. I used a stitched rectangle to cut out the image and sentiment. Then I fussy cut the bottom of the image.

I added kraft card stock to the bottom of the image, then layered that on a black card base. From my stash I added a few matching rhinestones.
