Summer is on at Graciellie Design with 2 sales you can’t miss! 

I’ve been having fun with some beautiful digital stamps from our latest releases and using bright colors in honor of the season. I really like to mix bold patterns and bright colors to create contrast on Summer themed cards.

But I do want to share the fun with all of you, so I’m adding a new Summer Sale discount to our SHOP starting today…

I fussy cut both images and adhered them with foam tape on a panel colored with ink sprays and embellished with patterned paper strips. I stenciled my second card with Dreamweaver Pearlescent Embossing Paste and also finished it with a few foiled details, using Thermoweb Decofoil in Magenta.

Graciellie Design Blog Hop & Giveaway – Heat embossing Digital Stamps –

Today some dear friends from the papercrafting community have joined me to celebrate the relaunch of Graciellie Design’s Digital Shop. I am glad to let you know that starting today you can find new digital stamp sets on my shop designed for cardmaking, scrapbooking, journaling, mixed media and even home decor. Today I’m sharing a card using two of my ten new stamp sets:

For my first card I printed and colored and sprayed with a shimmer mist the flowers on white cardstock and printed and heat embossed the sentiment on vellum to create a banner. The die cuts and colors framed the stamps nicely.

For my second card I made the heart stamp the card’s focal point printing and heat embossing it on vellum with gold glitter embossing powder. I also printed a sentiment on white cardstock and sprayed it with shimmer mist and created a little cluster with banners, hearts and other small embellishments.

Playing with this beautiful images was a treat. They are really versatile and fun to work with. Heat embossing and spraying printed images requires a bit of a learning curve but it is too easy and the results are sparkly and perfect. I will share a tutorial on these techniques and other tips and tricks soon!

Sweet ‘n Shabby Chic

Hello there! It’s Gracie posting today and I’m glad to have the chance to share with you another card I designed using the beautiful and versatile products carried by Classy Cards ‘n Such store. I created a shabby chic card with lots and lots of layers and elements.

I started off die cutting two labels with Spellbinders Decorative Labels Twenty Five. You can also get the same result using the classic Labels Twenty-Five, available at the store. I die cut one label from pink cardstock and another one from a digital floral patterned paper I designed, and that I printed on White Pearl Linen. The patterned label was also cut with a Spellbinders A2 Scalloped Borders One, but I suggest you check out A2 Curved Borders One, which would work nicely too. I mounted the patterned piece on top of the pink label, aligning them perfectly.

I added a piece of pink ribbon approximately across the middle of the layered label, vertically, hiding the ends behind the patterned piece. I adhered a Fantastic Flourish Three, and some vines die cut from green cardstock, one of my digital old handwriting patterned papers (also printed on White Pearl Linen), and Precious Metals Craft Foil by Spellbinders in gold that I painted with silver acrylic paint. I also attached some birds from Impression Obsession’s Birds Set, which I die cut twice and mounted to create a decoupage effect. I continued embellishing my label with some small flowers cut with Spellbinders Rose Creations and Carnation Creations, and that I adorned with some Baby Rhinestones – Silver. I also attached a little Fancy Label Tag One on which I stamped “with love” from Avery Elle’s Simply Tags stamp set. I framed the label with a medium die cut from Spellbinders Timeless Rectangles, cut from Stardream Rose Quartz, and then added some Baby Rhinestones – Silver to it’s corners.

Once the central label was fully embellished, I prepared my card base. The card base was cut from soft pink cardstock with A2 Matting Basics A. Then I layered it with a frame from A2 Filigree Delight. I added a piece of pink ribbon across the middle of the frame, horizontally, and then mounted the embellished label right on top of it. Finally I added a double bow decorated with a vintage button.

I love the final look of this shabby chic card. I hope you enjoyed seeing my card and reading how I made it! Remember that most of the supplies used are available now at Classy Cards ‘n Such store.

Vintage Florals – House of Cards

Hello, and welcome to my post for this month’s challenge at House of Cards: Use a Punch and/or Die. It’s time for us, the Vintage & Shabby team, to share our cards!

I created a vintage card using some beautiful dies. I also worked with a color combination I haven’t used in a while: peach, beige and green.

//www.hangatag.com/js/a.js
The floral paper is the soul of this card. I actually used a digital paper I designed called Floral Frames 5, printed on linen cardstock. I love how the vintage florals look! I layered three different labels on the side of the card and cut the edges remainding outside the card base. I embellished the card with 3/8″ cream gross grain ribbon, pearls, crystals and a gold vintage button.

Vintage Tag

Today I want to share with you a tag I made for  Ewe-n-Me Printables! I worked with the same collage sheet I used for last friday’s vintage card: Collage Sheet – Roses. I, without planning, used the same image from the sheet, only the smaller one (the collage includes two of each image, a small and a large one). 

This is a 5 1/2″ x 3″ tag I stamped, heat embossed, colored and distressed with ink, all on a vintage handwriting patterned paper. The small collage image was also distressed and mounted on the tag. This is a very nice and simple vintage project anyone can try out and it would certainly look very pretty on a gift bag.

//www.hangatag.com/js/a.js Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you liked my tag and that you feel inspired to create some projects of your own with this lovely digitals too!

Rose Culture

Hello! Today I want to share with you a project I made with Ewe-n-Me Printables! This time, I made a vintage card, using their Collage Sheet – Roses. These images are beautiful, and they print so bright and pretty… Love them!

I used an unusual color combination to make this card and I love how it resulted. It really looks vintage and lovely. I couldn’t resist adding a gold vintage button to the blue bow to finish my design.

I printed the digital image on white linen cardstock. The die cuts I used framed the image very nicely. I used light brown leather textured cardstock and light blue metallic cardstock for the frames. The yellow cardstock used for the card base is lightly textured and it’s called Hawaii where I live.

I altered the largest frame to make it shorter. I basically cut it in half and adhered it again trying to get the right height for the front of the card. I ran across the middle of the frame a piece of blue satin ribbon and embellished it with a bow. This trick helped cover the die cut alteration.

I hope you liked my card. The collage sheet has so many pretty images, you could very easily make a complete set of cards.

Three Roses

Welcome to a new post for Classy Cards ‘n Such weekly challenge: Cozy Plaids. It is with great joy, and a thankful heart that I write in this occasion, since today’s card represents a bunch of different good things in my life: Family, true friends, unconditional support and love.

To make my card I started by die cutting my card base with A2 Matting Basics A from off white cardstock. Then I printed a plaid digital paper, and a digital floral tag I designed, on White Pearl Linen. I die cut a matting frame and four corners with A2 Filigree Delight and a label with Fancy Label Tags One, both from the plaid patterned sheet. I die cut the floral tag with Elegant Ovals. I also used Elegant Ovals to cut a larger oval from beige cardstock.

I layered the four corners right on top of the frame’s corners to create a subtle tridimensional effect, subtle because both were cut from the same paper. I added a piece of pink ribbon vertically right on the center. Then I mounted the large oval, followed by the small oval which was decorated on its top and bottom ends with the patterned tag label. The tag label was actually cut in half, and I adhered the pieces to the back of the small oval, showing only the filigree ends.

To finish my card I stamped the word “family” from Prima’s Lady Bird Collection stamp set with Brilliance ink and die cut the sentiment with the smallest die from Fancy Label Tags One. And finally I embellished the die cuts with Baby Pearls – LeCreme.

I want to dedicate this card to two very special ladies, Beverly and Debbie. They are represented in this card by the two red roses, which are somehow sustaining a smaller pink rose, which I find represents me very well in this case. I want to thank these two ladies for their support and love, and for being there for me, like family.

Fall Roses

It’s time for another challenge at Classy Cards ‘n Such. Today I want to share with you the card I made for this week’s challenge: Stripes, Dots, Chevrons. You can use all of the patterns or just one of them! I decided to go for the dots, in vintage style.

To make my card, first I printed a digital patterned paper that I designed (soon to be released) on White Pearl Linen. Then I die cut the patterned paper with Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics A.

To embellish the front of my card I die cut three ovals from Spellbinders Elegant Ovals, one medium size and two small ones. I created a medallion label with the last two, mounting one over the other. I ran across a piece of gross grain ribbon in cream between the medium oval and the small medallion label. I added a few pine leaves to one side of the ovals that were die cut from Poppy Stamps’ Pine Garland, that looks quite charming and goes along well with the Fall theme.

Before I adhered the ovals to the patterned layer I mounted them on a strip of beige cardstock that I previously stenciled with Metallic Gold Embossing Paste using a Large Damask brass stencil, both from Dreamweaver. To finish the design I added two Baby Pearls – LeCreme.

I enjoyed very much making my card. I loved using the rich, gold embossing paste, experimenting with my dies and seeing how it all resulted together with the roses and the dots.

I hope you can join our challenge this week! To visit the store and check out the supplies I used, click here.

Summer Sunflowers

Hello! Welcome to my challenge post for Classy Cards ‘n Such. This week we have a great inspiration photo! Our cards have to be Sunflower Inspired.

These are truly bright summer colors in an unusual combination, at least for me. I decided to emphasize on the sunflower theme adding accents of red and green around my central image.

I stamped a bunch of sunflowers with Penny Black’s Flower Gallery set. I colored them with Spectrum Noir markers. Some of the flowers were stamped on a Spellbinders Classic Label Four, and some were fuzzy cut and adhered to the label afterwards. I applied Inka Gold in Yellow Gold to the sunflowers to give them a nice shimmer. I added Baby Rhinestones – Silver to the center of the flowers too.

I mounted the white label on a green metallic Spellbinders Imperial Gold Label Four, and then mounted these on a red Spellbinders Classic Label Four.

For the front of my card I added a piece of patterned paper from Shery K. Designs I printed on White Pearl Linen. I used Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics A to cut the patterned layer. Also, I created a nice border with Spellbinders Classic Edges Two and Classic Decorative Inserts Three. To finish the design I ran across a piece of red ribbon (slightly to the left) and tied a double bow.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my card! Join our challenge this week for a chance to win a special prize from the store. Visit Classy Cards ‘n Such and link up your Sunflower Inspired creation.
