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.

  4. Oh wow Gracielle. This card is amazing

  5. 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 :)

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 …

Bible Journaling with Pan Pastel, Deco Foil, TCW and Unity Stamp Co.

I promised I would be back with a new art journaling inspiration project today... This might as well become a habit! This time I have a page from Psalm 31 that I handdrawn and colored with PanPastel. The softness of the PanPastel goes so well with the bible pages and it so easy to blend and color with.
I knew I wanted a bold floral image on this page. I love floral illustrations and I had to try out this Magnolia here. I handdrawn the flower in pencil first inspired by a photograph online. This time I did not feel the need to prep my page because I was not going to be using any wet media on it. Then I started shading my flower starting with a 430.5 Magenta, adding highlights with 380.8 Red Oxide Tint and 100.5 Titanium White (trying not to touch the rest of the image and only blending it on the lightest spots of the flower). I also added 470.8 Violet Tint to create a little bit of shadows but since my coloring is usually whimsical it is ok if the tones shadows and highlights are so r…
