Stamped & Stenciled Cards with Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps

It's Gracie from Graciellie Design with a new cardmaking idea to share. I'm saying good-bye to Summer with a set of colorful stamped and stenciled cards. I had lots of fun making these so I'm happy to be sharing them with you today!




I started out by picking my color palette. I wanted to go for a bright and unique color combo and that is how my first card came to life in yellow and green. I stenciled the backgrounds with a TCW Distressed Details stencil using mostly ink. I did stencil a few patterns with TCW heavy body acrylic paint in yellow and silver metallic.



I stamped and colored the flowers from Mason Jar Bouquet Clear Stamp Set with Spectrum Noir markers and then added a stamped banner with the sentiment. This is a one layered card. I didn't add card panels at all and that is why I love these designs so much. If you use a nice cardstock you are able to add lots of ink and paint layers, but of course make sure to use as little medum as possible.

My second card came about as a consequence of the first one. I thought I should make another card using also yellow and so I combined it with hot pink. I tried to follow the same stencil design I had added to the first one, which is not precisely simple, but I was able to achieve the same look with a similiar stenciling.

Making these cards lifted my spirit on a very hard day, so I hope I they can also cheer you up and inspire you to create something pretty today! Until next time.

WINNERS + Last Minute Gifts for Christmas: Apron Gift Card Holders

Christmas is upon us and I know many of us end up wrapping gifts and making tags and cards in a rush on Christmas Eve. So I am planning ahead preparing some outside of the box last minute gift ideas.

You can find those here . They are super affordable and you can print them as many times as you like to recreate the same look on several projects. Also, I was able to get to aprons per printed 8 1/2" by 11" sheet. I printed them in a regular inkjet printer and used it to cut the pieces of this SVG file. I used the Precious Giftables cartridge -or should I say Christmas giftables- by the lovely Anna Griffin. It includes two pocketsm, one that you can see on the pictures to place a small card, and another one on the back that is perfect for your money gifts. So yes, they are
