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!

Pears & Flowers Step Card

You may know by now that I try to make time to create projects for some of my favorite challenges. I particularly enjoy the challenges back at the Mod Squad Challenge. This week the host is Lee... She is a great host... Love her! She challenged us to use something with a Fruit or Harvest theme... Yes, it's a Fruitful Harvest challenge!

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 …
