Graciellie Design at Word Art Wednesday - $15 Gift Card & Inspiration Projects

I am joining Word Art Wednesday Challenge today, together with some of Graciellie Design's Creative Team to showcase their weekly verse printable using our digital stamps. I decided to go for a subtle pool and white card with a touch of gray and Lapis Watercolor Deco Foil.




To view this and other new stamp sets click here.

I printed the verse using a laser printer and foiled the sentiment in Black Deco Foil, which is actually kind of matte. The foiling made the verse look bolder, added contrast and laminated the print. (It's a super nice effect.) The flowers were foiled with Lapis Watercolor Deco Foil which has blue, silver and champagne hues. By watercoloring the flowers in light blue it made the foiling look tone on tone... Very subtle and elegant. I used Zig markers to color the images.

The die cuts used are all from Spellbinders. I did a lot of die cut layering like in the old days. I added a piece of gray grossgrain ribbon to match the beautiful Laser Silver Lustre cardstock from Paper Temptress.

I invite you to head over to Word Art Wednesday Challenge to check out what the designers created with this beautiful verse and our stamps. WAW designers are featuring cards too, so there are a lot of project ideas for you! Oh, and there is a $15 Gift Card giveaway too so make sure to participate on this week's challenge for a chance to win new stamps!

Thanks for stopping by.

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 …
