Brand New Stamp Release
Graciellie Design Blog Hop & Giveaway

Welcome to our April release, blog hop and giveaway! Today a group of incredibly talented designers is ready to share with you an outstanding collection of inspiration projects using the new digital stamp sets from this release. I too have a few creative ideas for you...




Here I printed this beautiful flower twice on vellum and colored it from the back with alcohol markers. To learn how I printed and heat embossed this flower in gold check out my video. The dimension on the flower is achieved by fussy cutting each petal and leaf and off-setting them once they're adhere on top of the main image. I added the vellum layer over a fun ombre stenciled background (see tutorial here) and added a little banner with an encouraging sentiment to finish my card.




For my second card I went for a striking foiled look that is actually very difficult to photograph! I used a technique I call Foil Resist with which I can mix foiling and watercoloring. I will have a tutorial on it very soon, so stay tuned. Again I printed and heat embossed in gold sparkle my floral collage image on vellum and did some partial cutting to allow some of the edges of the image to stand outside the vellum banner. I colored it too with alcohol markers from the back. The bold and encouraging sentiment finishes the card beautifully.


Now it's time to see what the designers created... From home decor to gifts, I'm sure you'll be inspired. Hop along and leave a comment on every stop for a chance to win a NEW stamp set of your choice!
