Pink for October
Inspirational Card with Unity Stamp Co.

Hope, faith and a vision of a better, healthier and brighter future should never leave our minds, but there are times when it is really hard to believe there will be better days... This month is dedicated to a delicate matter that has become part of every single person in the world, as a patient, a friend, a relative, a loving one... I hope every post, every project posted online by all of us paper crafters can reach and inspire that special someone who is needing inspiration...

The promise contained in this verse has always inspired me so I thought I'd share it with everyone through this stamp set released recently by Unity Stamp Co. Blossoms & Blessings (view this and other sets HERE). It's a promise of peace, joy and good future... A beautiful inspiring verse that I hope encourages you today.

I layered many dies on this card, all of them from Spellbinders. I was watching Marie Antoinnette's movie while I was working so possibly something from that over the top era translated to my card's design. This time I'm using a more intense tone of pink than what I usually work with, and I combined it with gold and beige. I finished the card with a button, pearls and rhinestones.

That's all for now! Thanks so much for stopping by today.

  5. Oh wow Gracielle. This card is amazing

  6. Ahhhhh just beautiful Gracie, and yes definitely inspired by Marie Antoinette.
    I read her biography last year and she had a very sad life really though history doesn't paint her so.
    Also been to Versailles and seen her bedroom there - it's all pastel aqua/ green with pinks and seem to remember rose buds.
    She also had secret door in her room through which she could escape from continual general prying eyes which followed her from dawn to dusk.
    So love the use of the DP underneath have that SB base die and love the layering up. Going to pin it to "My must try board"
    God bless you dear sis, this verse is full of promise and hope... God is very good :)

Video Tutorial: Quick New Year's Card with Simple Stories & Deco Foil

I'm back with a fun and really easy to make card for the Holidays or the New Year and I have a video tutorial with Therm O Web today. I'm sure we all are rushing at the very last minute looking for tags and cards and wrapping gifts... I know I always am. That is why my latest Holiday projects have been on the quick and easy side so you can try them out if you need to! The usual theme for New Year's cards is usually monochromatic, metallic... But, what if we used colorful Holiday colors instead? Why not? Well, this time you'll see me use papers from Simple Stories Very Merry Collection. Video Tutorial This is short and sweet video tutorial where I show you how I put together this card. Really with card designing the hard part is figuring out what you want your card to look like in the end but once you have figured out what elements you'll be adding and where you will be placing them the card comes together pretty fast. So the behind the scenes may not ha

Watercolor Wash Backgrounds & Big Foiled Butterflies + This month's Winner

A few weeks ago I tried out new watercolors -those that come in tubes-. I was surprised to learn how pigmented they are and how much they allowed me to play with the colors, blending them to create beautiful washes. Well, that is exactly how today's cards started off! This month's release at the shop was very special to me, because it is my birthday month and we had a special bonus stamp release ( Pray Digital Stamp Set ). I have been so technique driven this month that I based my stamp choice for today purely on how I wanted to finish off these backgrounds. I used 3 colors for this watercolored wash: Ultramarine, Rose and Purple Pale. These stunning butterflies are from a set called Persevere -available now on Etsy-. I printed the butterflies on vellum at around 3.5 and 2.5 inches (using Microsoft Word to resize and arrange my print), using a laser printer. I then foiled them at low temperature with a Silver Deco Foil Transfer Sheet. I fussy cut each butterfly and at
