Quick Card Ideas using Digital Stamps & Papers

Hello friends! I thought I’d stop by and share with you a couple of quick card ideas using digital stamps and papers… Whether you love to color or not, these are cards that you can put together very quickly and they both are trendy and colorful!

For the first card, all I used was a few printed scraps from the Flutter Away Digital Paper Pack and a digital sentiment from the stamp set with the same name.

To make this card:

  1. Tear 1″ strips from different patterned papers. They don’t need to be exactly the same.
  2. Attach the strips to a black card base. The card base color should contrast the digital papers you use, but it doesn’t have to be black necessarily.
  3. Print and die cut a digital sentiment stamp. A round die cut looks great with this simple design.
  4. Mount the sentiment with foam squares on the center of the card.
  5. Optional: Adhere some sequins.

This is possibly the easiest, fastests, and most striking card I’ve made! Love how all the colors stand out. If you want to try out these digital sets click HERE and HERE.

For the second card, we’re going for a rainbow themed design… You’ll need the Rainbow Vibes Digital Paper Pack together with the Color my World Digital Stamp Set.

To make this card:

  1. Print a Rainbow Vibes stripe sheet using an inkjet printer, and cut it into a 4.25″ by 5.5″ panel.
  2. Attach the panel to a white card base of the same size.
  3. Next, print a sentiment on white cardstock and cut a panel 5.5″ long from it, making sure the sentiment is centered on the piece.
  4. Mount the sentiment panel to the card using foam tape.
  5. Finally, print 2 paintbrushes from the same digital stamp set, fussy cut and quickly color them. Attach the images to the card using foam squares.
  6. Optional: Adhere some sequins.

As an alternative option you could foil your digital stamp images before adding them to the card. You can do that by simply printing the images with a laser printer. The toner from the printer will make the foil attach when ran through a laminator. I used a Gold Shattered Glass Deco Foil on the paintbrushes and did some light watercoloring using Zig markers. (Foil will resist the watercoloring.)

Love how the vertical sentiment panel balances the bold rainbow patterned paper. The painbrushes frame the sentiment and add an extra fun touch to the design. If you want to try out these digital sets click HERE and HERE.

I hope you find these ideas useful for your crafts! There’s an infinite amount of quick designs that are possible using digital stamps and papers, and I would love you to be inspired to experiment and create with them!

That’s all for now. Have a crafty weekend! Until next time.

How to Color Deco Foil Clear Designer Toner Sheets Video Tutorial

The Deco Foil Clear Toner Sheets are made of acetate, which is a non-porous surface. Only certain coloring media will work well in this kind of surfaces, and alcohol ink is one of them. Since crafters usually have permanent coloring markers on hand, I used markers to color the backgrounds for this tutorial. Be sure to experiment and try out alcohol inks directly if you have some in your stash!

Tip: Rubbing alcohol is the only one that will all the alcohol markers and/or inks to dry properly. I have tried this technique with regular alcohol in the past with decent results. Nevertheless, regular alcohol will make alcohol inks feel tacky, will take days to dry completely and won’t activate and move the inks as rubbing alcohol does. The way alcohol inks react with rubbing alcohol is what creates all those interesting patterns and that is what you want to get with every background!

The best part of this technique is that it won’t damage your Clear Designer Toner Sheets or the foiled patterns on it. I recommend that you protect the surface you’re going to work on if you don’t want it to get stained with alcohol inks. Your hands may get stained also, but you can avoid that easily with a pair of gloves!

Barn Wall Background & Floral Stamps with Unity Stamp Co.

Happy Monday! Just recently there was an incredible background stamp release over at Unity… I couldn’t help myself and HAD to have the new Barn Wall stamp by Brutus Monroe… It is the kind of stamp that you will use over and over again and that will always look great on cards no matter the season. One of the things that really motivated me to get this one is how great it looked on floral cards the designers were sharing. So yes, I am infatuated with this stamp and I’m not shy about it! LOL. Today I’m combining this background texture with some modern florals from a kit I designed for Unity called Amazing Things.



Main Supplies used:
Barn Wall Background Stamp
Amazing Things Stamp Kit
Versafine Clair Nocturne Ink
Short Cut Kraft Cardstock
Alabaster Cardstock
Stamp Platform
3D Zots
XL Tape Runner

Video Tutorial

Watch the video tutorial below to check out how easy putting together a card like this is. The background really gives the card so much character, and the bright florals bring the whole design to life. I think you’ll see  your floral stamps in a totally different way now… I know I’ll be framing more sentiments using floral stamps from now on… Just love how they make the sentiment stand out! Click below to watch my process video. Don’t forget to follow me over at YouTube and give this video a big thumbs up!

That’s it for now I hope you enjoyed! I will be sharing more tips on video in the future but I do need to know you are watching these! So leave me a comment over at YouTube and let me know your thoughts! Share with your friends if you can!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Until next time!

A Christmas Hello • Lilac & Green Holiday Card with Unity Stamp Company

Happy Monday! This weekend I had the chance to make a card live over at Instagram! A non-traditional Christmas card in Lilac and Green using the new A Christmas Hello rubber stamp kit by Unity Stamp Co. This kit comes with 2 hanging elements, bold Christmas words and small words to mix and match. The hanging poinsettia and pinecone are playful elements that you can layer to create a festive background such as this one! This kit is the Holiday version of the Hey Friend rubber stamp kit released earlier this year. By the way, A Christmas Hello is 50% off right now over at Unity! Click here to find out more!

Today I’m sharing the steps I followed to create this card. The techniques I used are perfect for this stamp kit, no matter what colors you use! I’m also sharing links to many of the supplies I used in each step. Hope this gives you a better idea of how to put together a card like this!


To make this card:

1. Use Amalgam Ink to stamp several Pinecone and Poinsettia elements on the top border of a white card panel. Use a Stamp Platform or a Misti to stamp even more precisely each time.

2. Apply color to the background with the ink smooshing technique. In this case I used ink from the Arteza Real Brush Pens, a water mister and a Graphix Monoprint plate for the technique. Let dry the background well.


3. Next stamp more pinecones and poinsettias on a separate piece of white paper.

4. Watercolor the elements with Arteza Real Brush Pens and let dry.

5. Fussy cut the poinsettias and pinecones and add them to the stamped background using 3D Zots and mixed media adhesive for the end of the hanging strings.


6. Stamp the words peace, joy and love using Versafine Clair Nocturne ink and fussy cut each of them.

7. Attach the sentiments using Mixed Media Adhesive to the bottom corner of the card panel.

8. Adhere the stamped card panel to a black mattting layer and then to a white cardbase.

9. Finally, adhere lots of sequins (from Unity) and Nuvo Crystal Drops.


If you don’t mind using non-traditional colors on your Christmas cards, this combo might be something to try out this year! Nevertheless, I’m sure you could try this same technique in reds and greens to create stunning traditional Holiday cards also! If you do make a card with this stamp kit and/or this technique please tag us on social media with #gracielliedesign because we’d love to see what you come up with!

Hope you enjoyed today’s post. For many more ideas make sure to follow us here on the blog and also on Facebook and Instagram. We’re always sharing lots of inspiration projects! Thanks so much for stopping by!
