COMMENT & WIN! It’s Graciellie Design’s 7th anniversary celebration!

Hello crafty friend! It’s Graciellie Design’s 7th anniversary today, and we’re celebrating with an Instagram Hop and lots of amazing giveaways from friends and companies in the industry… The design team and I couldn’t be more excited! On May 29th, 2014 we offered our very first digital product, a millenial pink, vintage inspired paper pack). That was the beginning of a long creative journey that changed my life forever. I’m especially grateful for the papercrafting community around the world… Your support has made a difference in my life. Your love and kind words have had such an impact and although we’re a small community (a bit over 7,000 beautiful souls following on social media) it’s certainly the most loyal and loving. THANK YOU.

Magnolia Branch Video Tutorial

Today also happens to be my birthday so it’s gonna be a fun day! I asked the design team to share a card using their favorite set from the shop. (You can follow the hop and see their cards HERE.) I also reached out to a few of our friends in the industry and they’re sponsoring over $500 in giveaway prizes! (You can also join those giveaways HERE.) To further inspire you to celebrate and create with us this week I’ve prepared a full video tutorial using one of my favorite sets on the shop, which also happens to be one of our latest, Magnolia Branch. Choosing a favorite set is definetely hard since by now we have nearly 200 digital stamp sets available. (That’s around 2,000 images!)

TAKE A BREAK CARD TUTORIAL WITH Deco foil, SPECTRUM NOIR & GRACIELLIE DESIGN DIGITAL FLORAl STAMPS AND PAPERS

Hello there! Gracie here… Welcome to a brand new digital stamp (and paper) release! We’re excited you’re here! We’re extra happy to share the new You Go Girl Digital Stamp Set and the Botanical Dream Digital Patterned Paper Pack… Swoon! Shop all our new digital sets HERE.

My card for today was such a joy to make! I have to confess this is my first slim card ever and I totally understand now what all the hype is… Wow… It really is such a beautiful size to work with on card designs! I worked with Deco Foil and Spectrum Noir markers to create this botanical inspired card. More details below…

It’s Ok to Take a Break Botanical Card Tutorial

I started out by printing our new floral and sentiments on smooth medium weight white cardstock with a laser printer. The images are resizable so it’s easy to plan your design ahead. I set up all the images I want to use on a simple program such as Word and that way I can print everything on one same sheet. (This is my proven no waste printing technique.) The toner a laser printer works with will allow you to foil images on a laminator. I used a Mini Minc to foil the stamps with Gold Deco Foil (which is my favorite foil to use with this alcohol marker coloring). Nevertheless, any laminator will work for the task (even THIS ONE).

I used Spectrum Noir alcohol markers to color this hand illustrated digi. I used MG3, PP3, PP2, PP1 for the flower and AG1. AG2, AG3, AG4 for the leaves. I also used GY1 for the dark yellow accents. I used clean strokes to add shadows to the petals and leaves trying not to blend the darkest hue all the way and keeping a few areas white or nearly white to add light to the coloring. By the way, the Deco Foil won’t damage your marker tip if it’s been foiled and transferred on toner. In fact it acts as a resist when using watercoloring or other water activating media. If you notice that you’ve stained the foil color with during your coloring simply use a cotton swab and a bit of alcohol to clean off any staining. To finish off the flowers I used a Sharpie acrylic paint marker to add white splatters and added some Crystalline Drops to the petals and leaves.

This 8.5″ x 3.5″ slim card base was cut from GK Premium Cardstock in Grass Green. For the card background I printed a sheet from our new Botanical Dream Patterned Papers. This one sheet comes with florals on top, framing this fun grid notebook pattern which allowed me to layer the colored image easily. I used Sticky Dots sheets to adhere the patterned paper and GK Foam Tape to attach the foiled flower. Love the layers and dimension this created for the florals!

For the sentiment I decided to go for this sweet “It’s ok to take a break” phrase which was also printed in toner and foiled with Gold Deco Foil. I used a discontinued MFT Die-namics mini notebook page die to cut it and attached it to the bottom of the slim card using Foam Adhesive Sheets, which adds just the perfect amount of dimension. The sentiment, florals and background are at different levels balancing each other on the final card design. And because there can never be enough bling and shimmer I finished off the card with a few iridescent sequins I attached using Ultra Bond Liquid Adhesive! Oh, and of course I ended up rounding all 4 corners of the slim card with a corner punch.

gouache Coffee card with simple stories

The weekend is here and I’m excited to be back with one more coffee card idea to share! The Spring / Summer 2021 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop is coming to an end. The team and I want to say THANK YOU to Amy who organizes the event and to all her amazing followers for all the love and the kind comments… We are always happy to be a Super Sponsor and this hop was no exception! We were also excited to see how much you loved our new Spring Coffee Cup Digital Stamp Set! (Have you gotten a chance to play with it yet?)

We haven’t stopped sharing caffeinated inspiration over at Instagram & Facebook. In fact, we went live yesterday to share a bit more on the gouache technique I used on my card for the hop (See HERE). We shared a few useful tips and painted a couple of coffee cups live… Fun times… (Watch the replay HERE.) Anywho, today’s card was made with one of the coffee cups colored in the live video plus a couple more I painted later that afternoon!

Click to check out the Main Supplies used:
Spring Coffee Cup Digital Stamp Set
Canson Mixed Media Paper
Samsung Laser Printer Xpress M2020W
Marie’s Gouache Paints
Staedtler Waterbrushes
Simple Stories Hello Summer
We R Memory Keepers Mini Evolution Machine
GK Dot Runner Adhesive by Therm O Web
Deco Foil Foam Adhesive Sheets by Therm O Web

To make this card I printed 3 coffee cups and a sentiment on Canson Mixed Media paper using a laser printer. I heat set the toner and then painted the coffee cups using gouache in pink, yellow and light brown. Once they dried I came back in with white gouache adding polka dots to create a fun pattern.

For the final design I used a light brown leather textured card base, that I then layered with patterned paper from Simple Stories Hello Summer Collection. I attached the coffee cups scattering and offsetting them around the background. The remainding coffee cup pieces cut from the card base edge were used to fill in gaps.

Finally, I die cut the sentiment into a stitched circle and cut a second layering circle from gold metallic cardstock. I mounted the sentiment on the center of the card layout allowing the patterned paper and coffee cups to show around the edge. Such a fun and easy to achieve design!

Hang in There Wood Sign Stamps & Quick Tutorial

Hello friends! I’m stopping by to share this week’s featured card for our newest digital stamp release! This fun design was so satisfying to color and put together… I really enjoy coloring wood textures and this was no exception!

woodsigndigitalstamp_GraciellieDesign_3

HanginthereCO

Our new set is called Hang in There… It comes with this fun wood sign stamp that you can easily customize! You can use the sign as is or use the wood plank alone or even use the sign without the mini floral swag… Endless possibilities with this one! The sentiments included work perfectly with this illustration and are also great for the times we’re living!

woodsigndigitalstamp_GraciellieDesign_1

My card for today is super pretty and simple:

1. First I printed the image on lightweight cardstock using a @brothercraftsusa inkjet printer.

2. Next, I colored the image with @spectrumnoir alcohol markers and fussy cut it.

3. I used @wowembossing embossing freestyle tool to add distressed details to the wood sign, heating embossing with @catherinepooler Sage embossing glitter.

4. I dry embossed a white panel with a @teamspellbinders brick embossing folder.

5. I teared some pieces of @echoparkpaper patterned paper and attached it to part of the embossed panel.

6. Finally I mounted the wood sign using foam tape, and adhered the panel to a card base using liquid adhesive.
