Summer Flowers using Digital Stamps
- Shop our Summer Sale -

Summer is on at Graciellie Design with 2 sales you can't miss! 
I've been having fun with some beautiful digital stamps from our latest releases and using bright colors in honor of the season. I really like to mix bold patterns and bright colors to create contrast on Summer themed cards.


But I do want to share the fun with all of you, so I'm adding a new Summer Sale discount to our SHOP starting today...







Card made using one of our Summer stamp sets: Guide the Helm

There's also a great sale so you can grab any of our other stamp sets!

Card made using our new set: Elegant Greetings

I colored the flowers with Spectrum Noir markers and lightly mist them with Sheer Shimmer. I fussy cut both images and adhered them with foam tape on a panel colored with ink sprays and embellished with patterned paper strips. I stenciled my second card with Dreamweaver Pearlescent Embossing Paste and also finished it with a few foiled details, using Thermoweb Decofoil in Magenta.

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 …
