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!) Click below to learn how to create a foiled and watercolored card using digital stamps, Deco Foil and glitter watercolors.

Therm O Web’s Fancy Foils by Gina K. made this card look so delicate and elegant with all the shimmer and sparkle! We hope you enjoyed watching how I put together this design from scratch! We’re currently giving away this digital stamp background as a free gift with your order! Yes, completely free! Visit the shop this week for a chance to get this gift! It’s perfect for foiling techniques but it’s also great for coloring as is!

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!

Enabler Alert

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.

Detailed Watercoloring with the new Iris Digital Stamp Set

Hello! It’s been a while, so I couldn’t miss the chance to stop by and share a new card idea and stamp set with all of you. Actually, this is my first card in months… Life seriously took over and kept me away from crafting. Nevertheless, if you follow me on social media you’ve heard from me and our design team at Graciellie Design…

So far, during the month of January we’ve released 4 new digital stamp sets, a monthly bundle, a digital paper pack and a printable sticker set… Yeah, we’ve been busy! Today, we’re sharing a brand new set, called Family Love… We’ve been showing sneak peeks on social, and everyone has been excited about our new Iris Latifolia flower… This flower digi stamp is very detailed, and I was inspired by a beautiful collection of botanical illustrations while drawing it!

Here’s is the final flower I watercolored using Kuretake Zig Real Brush Markers! I mounted it on a 3D embossed card base, that I made using a Spellbinders folder called Celtic Weave…

Iris_GraciellieDesign_1

Iris_GraciellieDesign_2

I really took my time with this one and added lots of details… I spent a good amount of time on the shading and added highlights with white goache paint and a sharpie white acrylic paint marker… If you want to see pictures of my progress, click here to visit my Instagram.

My favorite set ever?

Considering that I’m the one illustrating each of these stamp sets, each new set I finish becomes my new favorite, usually up until the next beauty comes… But there’s one set that I have used over, and over, and that I enjoy coloring so much, because of the simplicity of the illustration, and how open the floral is… I love to watercolor it, and I’ve done so several times after its release… It’s one of those sets, that will allow you to play with different coloring techniques … It’s the Your Kindness digital stamp set

You won’t want to miss this Birthday party! New stamps + Blog Hop & Giveaway

Hey there, everyone! The day is here! It’s my big birthday blog hop, and of course I had to celebrate it with you! I love that today we can share lots of inspiration projects, new stamps, a big sale, and of course a giveaway! It’s just so much better when you get to share all things happy with others!

In case you haven’t followed, we have been revealing one new stamp set a day for a week, plus a giveaway each day, all happening over at our Facebook page (here). If you’d like to have a chance to win some new sets, you can still go back to our posts there, and join!

A Heart at Peace is Everything…

Ok, so let’s move on to the inspiring crafty stuff… This week I found myself doing lots and lots of watercoloring… Loose, abstract floral watercoloring that is, without following a defined image. I can’t even begin to tell you how much it boosted my mojo and it’s just so relaxing and satisfying I should add… I ended up with a bunch of beautiful backgrounds for cards, and I then asked our followers on social media to help me complete a card with a sentiment of their choice… Today’s card is the result of this interactive challenge!

WatercoloredLilacCard_GraciellieDesign_1

To create the background you really just need to play with very watered down colors and let your imagination take flight… Once you feel comfortable with the technique it becomes easier and easier to create these fun and whimsical floral patterns. Just remember to use more water than watercolors…

WatercoloredLilacCard_GraciellieDesign_2
