NEW Rubber Stamps with Unity & Graciellie Design

Happy Friday! This has certainly been a jam packed week… Lots of new things going on and this time I’m delighted to be back on the blog to share about my new stamp kits with Unity! FIVE NEW KITS are being added to the Graciellie Design collection today: A Christmas Hello, Obsessively Grateful, Stay Strong, Sweetness and You Matter.

A couple of Inspiration Projects

A Christmas Hello…

Such a fun kit, with big and bold words and modern poinsettia and pinecone hanging elements… All the words come separate so you can mix and match to your heart’s content!

This shaker card was so fun to make! I watercolored the poinsettias with Arteza Real Brush markers, using the colors Red, Hot Pink and Flamingo Pink. The background was smooshed with watered down Tranquil Teal Premium Dye Ink by Gina K. Designs (available also at Unity), and then for the die cut frame that holds the shaker, I inked it with the same ink using a sponge dauber and sprayed it with water… I’m so in love with the way this ink reacted to water… This color in particular is beautiful! I also used Deco Foil Adhesive pen to add silver splatters to the background and the frame. Love how the foiled details tie all the design together.

The shaker in general feels a lot like a snowy scene. I used lots and lots of sequins from Unity in teal blue -that matches the ink so well- and in translucent silver. I also added some Fran-tage Silver Lux Mix micas & glitter… So yeah, this card really shakes! (I thought I had added too many sequins to the shaker, but everyone says there’s no such thing as too much when it comes to sequins! LOL)

You Matter…

My second card is so dreamy! I’ve had this clear stenciled background for months, and now it’s finally on a card! You Matter comes with beautiful sentiment stamps, uplifting and inspiring without a doubt. The modern floral vignette is also hand illustrated by yours truly and I love how it looks colored in lilacs! The background is a piece of Deco Foil Clear Toner Sheet stenciled with Platinum Modeling Paste by TCW Stencils. The stenciled acetate sheet is layered on a sprayed and splattered card panel… The colors behind it truly brings the entire card to life!

Make a Shaker with a Digital Stamp

This card din’t come easy, and I’ll tell you why… This lovely Frappuccino is one of those images that gives you so much freedom since you can color it however you like… I’ve seen every color and every flavor of frappuccinos around and so all the options made me take longer, as I couldn’t decide how to color this lovely stamp! Nevertheless, I found this background on my scrap bin, and that grounded my ideas.

I colored the Frappuccino with Arteza Markers in Bubble Bath Pink, Periwinkle, Wisteria Purple and Amaranth Pink. I made the coloring look like the actual topping on iced coffee melting in the whipped cream and inside the Frappuccino. I’ve been playing a lot with this coloring idea and it works with any and every color you want to use for the coffee cup! Finished the coloring with dots here and there using fineliners, a white gel pen and a silver oil based marker.

The background is made from pieces of a printed Mixed Media Sheet, that I then foiled with Silver Deco Foil and next colored with watercolors. The pattern I printed on the sheet is quite distressed and printing it through a laser printer allowed me to run it through a laminator and foil it. The sheet is easy to tear and that is how I made the three pieces that I adhered across an A2 card panel with Mixed Media Adhesive. Finally I added pieces of Tim Holtz washi tape across the background… Love the final look, with the words on the washi. It looks quite graphic!

The heart on the center of the Frappuccino had me thinking about doing some paper piercing (which I tried and looked really nice), but then I felt like making a shaker out of the heart would be cute! This is something you can make with all your digi stamps that have a particular shape within the image. I used a Titanium Craft Knife from Westcott to cut out the heart, adhered a piece of Deco Foil Clear Toner Sheet acetate, followed by a double layered strip of foam tape and a bunch of pretty Ariel sequins from Unity Stamp Co.
