Handmade Tea Box & Flowers
gift idea for teacher's day

This week we celebrate Teacher's Day where I live, I made a little something for my son's teacher. Something she can reach whenever she needs to relax after a long day... A tea box.




I made the tea box using one of the exclusives digital files from my collection. I will be updating my digital shop here on the blog soon! I decorated the lovely box with many handmade flowers and delicate embellishments. I added a little square note that coordinates with the box's pattern, using one of my digital papers from the Keys & Roses set. I filled it with a variety of tea bags that hopefully will be enjoyed a lot.

That is all for today. Thanks so much for stopping by. Until next time!

  2. This box is so beautiful Gracie! I love your choice of papers...so feminine and lovely. Of course the flowers are my favorite part...just stunning as always. I am sure the teacher will enjoy the tea assortment you have chosen for her and she will have this box as a reminder of your thoughtfulness and appreciation long after the tea is enjoyed. Thank you Gracie for sharing. Take care and stay safe. Looking forward to your next post! ~ Hugs ~

Pears & Flowers Step Card

You may know by now that I try to make time to create projects for some of my favorite challenges. I particularly enjoy the challenges back at the Mod Squad Challenge. This week the host is Lee... She is a great host... Love her! She challenged us to use something with a Fruit or Harvest theme... Yes, it's a Fruitful Harvest challenge!

I really wanted to create something special for Lee, so I took my time. Here is my design:




I stamped and heat embossed the flowers and two pears in gold. The first are from Flourishes' Over the Garden Gate stamp set, and the last are from Inky Antics' Holy Spirit's Fruit.

I colored the images with alcohol markers. Next I fuzzy cut and sponged them with a little Distress Ink in Peeled Paint.

I also heat embossed a sentiment from Flourishes' Spring Bouquet stamp set. I die cut the sentiment with Spellbinders French Frills set and sponged it very lightly, also with Peeled Paint Distress Ink. I embellished the label altering anoth…

Dreaming of a White Christmas
gilded & elegant christmas card

I have a confession to make... This year I've been drawn to make white and gold Christmas cards. I can't even think of traditional Christmas colors when I want to make a project! So today's poinsettia card and tutorial translate very well what Christmas is gonna be like this December at home.

White and gold look so elegant together! Since the holidays are all about sparkle too, I used one of my favorite glitter techniques and I'm sharing a quick and easy tutorial with youHERE.


I created the background myself, layering snowflake stamps in different designs, first in a very light beige, then in gold embossing. Afterwards, I dry embossed the stamped mat with a sutile polka dot design and used a brayer to apply light beige paint to the raised pattern.

As for the very layered and beautiful center of the card, I started out with an intricate die cut (see tutorial HERE) and continued building layers, with large snowflake die cuts and finally with a large handmade poinsettia …
