3 Giveaways + New Magnolia Dreams Collection & Paper Temptress Blog Hop

Today is the beginning of a new design team term and we are introducing 13 amazing designers from all over the world! Also, we are celebrating this new journey with a digital collection like you've never seen before!

Our August release features for the first time a unique coordinating collection called Magnolia Dreams that includes a stamp set; a paper pack in 2 of my favorite colors: Fuscia and Teal; and, for the first time on our shop, an SVG set of 5 cuts that coordinate with the patterns on our new paper pack.




Graciellie Design is also collaborating this month with Paper Temptress not only with this amazing blog hop but also with an exclusive specialty paper release created to coordinate perfectly with our new Magnolia Dreams collection



This variety pack is a physical product that includes 23 sheets of high quality cardstock and it even includes a few extra ribbon goodies! It is available for purchase on Paper Temptress shop starting today! The colors were carefully selected to match our digital paper pack perfectly and the colors, textures and metallics you will get in this pack are beyond stunning!


My card for today is a mix of everything fuscia and teal from the new release! I drew this Magnolia flower from scratch inspired on the beautiful vintage Magnolia branch motif on the digital papers. This flower comes with a transparent background (just as the sentiments do). I uploaded the flower to my Cricut space, saved it as a print and cut file and the Cricut Explore Air 2 cut it out for me, saving me lots of time!

The flower was colored with Prismacolor pencils. This is my second time using this medium and though it takes longer than other coloring media do, you are able to add so much detail to the image. In this case I layered the color slowly and blended using 3 colors and a light color that helped create a soft transition between every hue.

All the papers used on this card come from Paper Temptress Magnolia Dreams Specialty Paper Collection. I used Cryogen White to print the digital papers (which makes the patterns shimmer), Nero Incandescent for the black frames, Teal Basis for the branch die cuts, Kraft for the printed sentiment and a delicate soft pink for the cardbase.

The patterns, colors and cardstocks coordinate so nicely and the result you're going to get with this collection will always be bright and beautiful! All I needed to do to finish this card was add some teal rhinestones from Eyelet Outlet and I was done!

Before we go into today's giveaways details, I would love to share the first card I made with my new rubber stamp sets! This is one of my favorite flowers in the collection and I had to play with it right away! This set is called Amazing Things and it includes beautiful inspirational sentiments.


I stamped the flowers in black, using Umbrella Crafts Premium Dye Ink and colored the image with Spectrum Noir Makers Purples and Reds. I fussy cut the images using Westcott's Titanium Bonded Microtip Precision Scissors (…

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 …

New Stamp Release + Giveaway!
-Introducing our new Creative Team-

Welcome to Graciellie Design's first stamp release for 2017! We are so glad you're here! Today we are starting off with not only new stamp sets but also a new team of designers that will make your day with the beautiful projects they have made for you!

This new release includes 4 brand new sets with inspiring images and sentiments that you can resize, recolor, foil, decoupage and much, much more! As you follow along today's blog hop you will have a chance to see each of our new stamps used in creative ways. I know you will be inspired by the designer's project ideas.

Today I'm using stamps from -You are Loved-. I couldn't resist foiling this romantic rose on vellum. To give the card a soft contrast I used one of the new watercolor Deco Foil, that actually has different tones of lilac and purple allowing the image to really glow and stand out. I colored the back of the vellum with magenta using a Spectrum Noir alcohol marker.

The sentiment was also foiled on whi…
