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.

A Cup of Love Handmade Card: Layered Watercolor Wash Background with Deco Foil Clear Toner Sheets and NEW Coffee Stamps

Hello friends! I’m back on the blog with a new card idea! My goal this year is to be able to draw and design a new set each week, and so far so good! The team and I are having so much fun creating! Today’s new set is actually a fun, coffee themed collection called A Cup of Love that comes with a cute Coffee Cup and Heart Sugar Cookies illustrations and sentiments you can use all year round!

For this card, I used 2 separate backgrounds I made a couple years ago and ended up not using… One of them is a watercolor wash on white cardstock (you can watch how I made that HERE) and the second is a stenciled Clear Deco Foil Toner Sheet, using gold embossing paste. I adhered the clear sheet onto the watercolored panel and then mounted this striking combo on a white cardbase.

CupofLove_GraciellieDesign_2

The image was printed on a Brother inkjet printer, and colored with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. I added micro rhinestone stickers to the sugar cookies and some Spectrum Noir Sparkle in clear to the whipped cream and sentiment tag (which I don’t think you’re able to actually see on the pictures). I mounted the image using 3D Zots which works great for deeply textured surfaces!

CupofLove_GraciellieDesign_1

And that is it for now! If you love coffee and collect coffee stamps, this set is for you! Be sure to stop by our digital shop and get the new A Cup of Love set 10% OFF, everything else is also marked down for you! Click here to shop.

Rustic Winter Card with Unity Stamps and Digital Papers

This year I’ve been drawn to the more traditional holiday colors with a touch of rustic, farmhouse style. You might notice it with my latest rubber stamp kit for Unity and also with the new digital paper pack I’ve designed. Today I’m combining both of them to create a unique Winter card.

WhateverKeepsYouWarm_WinterPoinsettiaCard_GraciellieDesign_1b

To begin, I printed the digital patterned papers on photo paper, which makes the patterns look very bright and pretty. I cut a large A2 panel from the distressed black and white gingham sheet and a smaller rectangle from the poinsettia on chalkboard patterned sheet. I used kraft cardstock for both the card base and the matting frame.

The Poinsettia branch was colored with Spectrum Noir markers. The colors that seemed to match the patterned papers best were the Magenta reds. This is a very detailed image but it will always end up looking regal no matter how much shading you decide to add to it.

WhateverKeepsYouWarm_WinterPoinsettiaCard_GraciellieDesign_2b

I printed a sentiment from the kit and cut a banner from it. I added a couple of Silver Glitter Dust Photo Corners to it, which added an elegant sparkly touch to contrast the rustic details on the card. I also tied some jute twine around the other end of the banner. Both the sentiment, the fussy cut Poinsettias and the organic sticks added to them were adhered with Gina K. Designs Permanent Adhesive Runner and 3D Zots.

WhateverKeepsYouWarm_WinterPoinsettiaCard_GraciellieDesign_3b

Love, love, love this color combo. Black, red and kraft look SO great together. I invite you to try it out for your Holiday and Winter cards this year! This card has a simple layout, but the colors and patterns make it pop beautifully.

That’s it for today. Hope you enjoyed today’s card!
