Hello friends! I’m so glad to be back with a video tutorial featuring a brand new rubber stamp release with Unity Stamp Co. I am SO excited to share what’s new today, so be sure to scroll to the very end of this post to see all the stamp kits available starting now over at Unity’s website.

Naturally Beautiful Rubber Stamp Kit

I’ve been sharing sneak peeks on social media –here and here– of today’s project. Today’s card is a fresh Summer design with lots of contrast, featuring these hand illustrated orange blossom branches, that I watercolored and fussy cut to create a frame around the glitter stenciled black background and sentiment.

Sunflower Galore • New Digital Stamps & Papers

Hi everyone! I’m so excited to be here today, to share what I think is one of our most exciting digital releases, because it is one that both you and I brought together through live videos, suggestions and a strong and loyal connection. YES, it’s finally the day to share our April release, and it includes new sunflower stamps and papers, wildflowers and more! (Jump to the end of this post to see all our new sets!)

SunflowerCards_GraciellieDesign_1

Today I’m featuring the Summer Sunflowers Digital Stamp Set and Paper Pack. Both these cards were super easy to make! In fact, I shared bits and pieces of the creative process on Instagram live videos in the past weeks. From the illustration of this stamp set to the actual card ideas, it all started off on live videos together with our followers! In fact you can watch how this background was made HERE!

The sunflowers were printed on mixed media paper using a laser printer, and colored with Zig Clean Color markers and a waterbrush. The patterned paper was printed on photo paper, and then stenciled with Deco Foil Transfer Gel. Once the gel dried I was able to run it through the laminator covered with Gold Shattered Glass Deco Foil, and it turned out like this! The foiled harlequin texture on top of the sunflower patterned papers is SO gratifying!

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!

FrappuccinoCoffeeCard_CoffeeLovingCardmakers_GraciellieDesign_UnityStamps_6

My creative process behind these cards

I colored these images using Arteza markers and I even shared the process live on Instagram. I used the colors Bubble Bath Pink, Lavender, Bright Green, Pear Green, and Amaranth Pink. The idea was to match the coloring with the hues on the monoprinted mixed media background. I like to keep pre-made background around and these two happened to be from the same monoprinting batch. If you want to see how I made these, please click HERE

FrappuccinoCoffeeCard_CoffeeLovingCardmakers_GraciellieDesign_UnityStamps_5

I made a second card with the floral cone stamp from the kit Sweetness. This one is also available in both digital and rubber stamp sets! I wanted to create a set of 2 matching cards for a gift or just for fun and to make them look alike I teared the monoprinted backgrounds and adhered the pieces on opposite corners of the card front. To finish the cards I added a sentiment banner from the kits and lots of pretty sequins from Unity.

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!

AChristmasHello_UnityStampCo_GraciellieDesign_1c

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!

YouMatter_UnityStampCo_GraciellieDesign_1

That’s it for today!
Remember to join the celebration over at Facebook.
Take a peek at the new stamps at Unity’s website and be sure to leave me a comment letting me know which of these new stamp kits is your favorite!
