Encouragement Cards

Graciellie Design

Hello everyone… Today, I would love to share a couple of encouragement cards that I created using digital stamp set.

Graciellie Design God’s Grace Encouragement Cards

On these cards, I used the new digital stamp set from Graciellie Design. It is the God’s Grace digital stamp. I love the beautiful hand-drawn Gardenia flower and handlettered up-lifting sentiments. They are perfect for any encouragement paper-crafts and gifts for sure.

Graciellie Design God’s Grace Encouragement Cards

I created the floral background by resizing the flowers and arraging them to fit in 8.5 x 11 cardstock. I printed them on white cardstock. Then I trimmed them into 2 sizes of paper strips. I added them on the front of the cards with 3D foam tape.

Graciellie Design God’s Grace Encouragement Cards

I printed out the sentiments on white cardstock and cut them with ODBD Double Stitches Rectangles Dies. I also cut matching colored cardstocks with the same die sets as the sentiment mats.

I added the sentiment on the cards with dries-clear adhesive glue and I added some of the red and hot pink gems on each card to embellish it. Cards are done.

Creating with digital stamps is a way to mass-produce cards in a jiffy 🙂 I hope you enjoy this quick post today. Check out more of Gracie’s beautiful designs at her Etsy store.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today. I hope you all have a fabulous blessed day.

My two coffee themed cards today I created using Hero Arts Digital Stamps from a2z Scrapbooking: DK114 Caffein Fix and DK103 Brush and Splatter. a2z Scrapbooking is one of Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog Hop Super Sponsors.



When I work with Digital Stamps, I like to use my Silhouette Studio Software. But, any digital photo editing software will work. Even, Word program will work. I resize all the images and sentiments for projects, print them and then work on the projects.

Typografia In Faith – A Bible Journaling Page and A Card


Hello everyone… I am back today with 2 projects, a Bible journaling page and a Faith card to share with you all.

Typografia In Faith - A Bible Journaling Page and A Card

My first project is a Bible Journaling Page that I created using the new Typografia In Faith – Love The Lord Stamp Set. The Typografia in Faith stamp sets fit on the journal space on my ESV Journaling Bible.

I created the stamped border tag. I added some Gelatos on a piece of watercolor paper, and then I added the Bloomtangled #2 Cover Plate Die on it, and remove some of the colors with baby wipe to create a ghosting background. Then I stamped the Love The Lord stamp set with Versafine Onyx Black and heat embossed it with Glitter embossing powder. I trimmed it to fit the journal space and added on the page with dries-clear adhesive glue.

I added more of the Gelatos on the page to create the frame around the page. Then I added some of the white flower die cuts that I cut out using Trendy Spring Blooms Dies.

Typografia In Faith - A Bible Journaling Page and A Card

My second project is a Faith themed card that I created using the new Typografia In Faith – Peace Be With You stamp set. I stamped it with Mini MISTI using Memento Dew Drop London Fog Ink and Memento Dew Drop Bamboo Leaves Ink. Then I cut it with one of the ODBD Circle Dies.

I created the background using the Bloomtangled #1 Cover Plate Die with Ghosting Technique and Distress Oxide Inks. And I embellished the card with some natural twine ribbon and gold assortment sequins.

I hope these projects encourage you to express your faith through your projects 🙂
