So much inspiration for you! + Our April Giveaway!

That's right! This month is another special month for Graciellie Design. Our shop continues to grow with new stamp collections and our team can't stop creating! So today we bring you more inspiration, project ideas and beautiful stamp sets -available now on our digital shop-.

Before we start, we would like to announce our 2 winners for the month of March! The winner of $20 gift card to our digital shop is Tiffelijah! The winner of a $20 gift card to Paper Temptress is being announced on their blog, so head over there -after you finish our blog hop- to find out if you are the lucky winner.

Today I'm showcasing these bold and elegant roses from our new set -Strong & Courageous-. This new stamp set is one of the most complete sets we've ever had on the shop. It includes 4 sentiments and 4 images. It is actually a pop-up stamp set, meaning that it allows you to decoupage the flowers and leaves if you want to. Although it's digital the stamps come ready to use, you just need to print the base flower and the pop-up flower in the same size and they will fit perfectly! |

I printed the roses on vellum and white cardstock and then foiled them using Silver and Lapis Watercolor Deco Foil. I painted the back of a couple of vellum flowers with a bit of Antique Linen Distress Paint and found out during the process that any acrylic paint works to create the same effect. The color shows through the vellum and gives the flower a totally different look.

Many of you always wonder what to use to adhere vellum and in this case to also give dimension to the pieces... One of my favorite adhesives for transparencies are Zots. They are completely translucent and they also have dimensional zots that are perfect for this technique.

Since the flowers are a statement on their own, I decided to just add a simple frame and splatter some white acrylic paint to complete the card front. The verses included in this stamp set are so inspiring that I had to add them to the card, so they were foiled and adhered to the inside of the notecards.

More ideas and inspiration are ahead. Stop by the blogs listed below to check out how the designers are using our new stamps this month! In addition to that, part of the team will also be featuring Westcott Brand products. We love to fussy cut flowers and other images here at Graciellie Design and Westcott has some of the best precision scissors out there, so we are very excited to be partnering with them this month!

Dreaming of a White Christmas
gilded & elegant christmas card

I have a confession to make... This year I've been drawn to make white and gold Christmas cards. I can't even think of traditional Christmas colors when I want to make a project! So today's poinsettia card and tutorial translate very well what Christmas is gonna be like this December at home.

White and gold look so elegant together! Since the holidays are all about sparkle too, I used one of my favorite glitter techniques and I'm sharing a quick and easy tutorial with youHERE.

I created the background myself, layering snowflake stamps in different designs, first in a very light beige, then in gold embossing. Afterwards, I dry embossed the stamped mat with a sutile polka dot design and used a brayer to apply light beige paint to the raised pattern.

As for the very layered and beautiful center of the card, I started out with an intricate die cut (see tutorial HERE) and continued building layers, with large snowflake die cuts and finally with a large handmade poinsettia …

Bible Journaling with Pan Pastel, Deco Foil, TCW and Unity Stamp Co.

I promised I would be back with a new art journaling inspiration project today... This might as well become a habit! This time I have a page from Psalm 31 that I handdrawn and colored with PanPastel. The softness of the PanPastel goes so well with the bible pages and it so easy to blend and color with.
I knew I wanted a bold floral image on this page. I love floral illustrations and I had to try out this Magnolia here. I handdrawn the flower in pencil first inspired by a photograph online. This time I did not feel the need to prep my page because I was not going to be using any wet media on it. Then I started shading my flower starting with a 430.5 Magenta, adding highlights with 380.8 Red Oxide Tint and 100.5 Titanium White (trying not to touch the rest of the image and only blending it on the lightest spots of the flower). I also added 470.8 Violet Tint to create a little bit of shadows but since my coloring is usually whimsical it is ok if the tones shadows and highlights are so r…
