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!

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

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 you HERE . 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 h
