Last Giveaway & Sale of the Year + A yummy Coffee Card idea!

Hey friends! Thank you so much for your patience… I’m finally back on the blog, and I have a lovely new card to share plus some awesome news too! I know I didn’t do a Christmas post with giveaways which is something I always like to do, so I’ll do just that on today’s post! How about we give away a $50 gift card? For a chance to win:

  1. Make sure you’re subscribed to our blog newsletter (on sidebar).
  2. Visit our brand new shop over at gracielliedesign.shop
    Yes! We’ve left Etsy for good and we just opened a brand new website with over 60 digital sets available (including 5 new digi stamp sets added this week)!
  3. Leave a comment below letting me know what is your favorite digital stamp set from our shop.
  4. Share this post on social media and invite your friends to join the fun.

While you take in all the info above (LOL), let me show you my latest card using one of our newest digi stamp sets! This set is called Coffee Lovers. We released it for National Coffee Day recently and it also comes with coordinating Coffee Lovers digital paper pack and SVG Cut Files (all of which are available HERE).

For the card’s background I dry embossed a white cardstock panel using the very old Argyle Cuttlebug embossing folder. Then I teared a few pieces of patterned paper that I printed previously on leather textured cardstock and layered 3 pieces on the center of the card panel. I used the new GK Foam tape in white, to give one of the patterned pieces more dimension.

I watercolored this coffee mug using the Paul Rubens watercolor palette. I finished the image with some Diamond Dust Twinklets that I adhered to the topping with Ultra Bond Adhesive. By the way, this new adhesive is amazing for glitter, sequins, ribbon and so much more… It’s super strong, dries fast and clear! Totally recommend it!

For the the sentiment, I decided to draw a heart around it and color it with Spectrum Noir markers… It ended up looking like a yummy butter cookie! I added some shimmer to it using a Sparkle brush pen too.

To finish off my card I adhered a jute twine bow to the mug and some sequins to the background using Ultra Bond Adhesive.

Lots of yummy layers on this one! I cut both the tag card and matting tag on my Cricut Explore Air 2 and added layers of embossing enamel, glitter, mica, metallic modeling paste, bits of Deco Foil and so on! You know how much I love adding chunky textures to my projects lately, I can’t help myself!

I colored the image with Arteza Real Brush Pens and added details with a white Sharpie paint pen in the end. I always like to seal my watercolored digi images with resin spray or Krylon Workable Fixatif to protect my coloring and also to make the colors pop a bit more…

CoffeeTag_GraciellieDesign_DigitalStampsandSVG_3

I finished my tag card with white wrinkle ribbon and a bow that I tied around the matting tag before adhering it to the card, and, also used the coffee word SVG from the Coffee Lovers set. Of course I did add some sequins from Unity and gold thread because I can’t have enough layers on a card… I know!

Hope you enjoyed today’s post! If you are a winner, please send me a message and I will be happy to send you your prize!!! We have a new giveaway over at our Facebook page and there’s still time to join. Click here to find out more!

Coffee Lovers SVG

While I was making my cards for this event, I felt the need to have a tag card, and coffee themed elements and words. I didn’t have dies like that to cut them, so I decided to go ahead and put together an SVG pack that includes 39 coffee / tea cuts… It’s called Coffee Lovers and it’s so much fun! Love all the possibilities with these SVGS. Click here to see everything this pack includes!

My second card for today features the new SVGS! I used my Cricut Explore Air 2 to cut lots and lots of elements, in different kinds of papers, that I then layered and adhered around the white card base. I added a touch of gloss with the new GK Crystalline Drops! The SVG phrase is actually 2 separate words that I welded using the option on Cricut Design Space. These are very easy to use and you can upload them to your Cricut, Silhouette and even Brother Scan-n-Cut platforms. They can be resized to any size and combined however you like, which makes this set so fun!
