Graciellie Design – Unity Stamp Company New Release Blog Hop and Giveaway

Hello everyone!!! Welcome to the Graciellie Design – Unity Stamp Company Blog Hop. I am so glad you are here! Today Gacie is releasing her new rubber stamps at Unity Stamp Company and to celebrate it, there are prizes to win from his new release blog hop.

I am so excited to join this amazing blog hop and I have not only one, but FIVE cards to share with you using the 5 new stamp sets from Graciellie Design! Here’s my first card that I created using the Blossom and Flourish stamp set.

On my card, I cut out a white cardstock using ODBD – Lattice Background Die and added it on an A4 Ivory card with adhesive glue. Then I added some black splatter paints using Black Gelato, water, and fan brush.

For the flowers, I colored them with Cherry Red Gelato and Pistachio Gelato. I added little bit of the gelatos on the petals and leaves, and using my finger and baby wipe to blend them. I fussy cut them with micro-tip scissors. I added the flowers and sentiment on the card with adhesive glue. I embellished the card with some clear gems to give it some extra sparkly look.

Second card I created using the new Coffee & Flowers stamp set that is one of my favorites from this new release.

First I created the pennant banner backgroud by adding the some of the colors from Pastel Gelatos Set on a piece of watercolor paper, blended them with baby wipe. I added some pink splatters on it using Pretty Dress Catherine Pooler Ink, water, and fan brush. I dried it with craft heater and then I cut it with OBDD – Large Banner Dies and I added it on an A2 White Card with adhesive glue. I added the natural twine ribbon on the card with some adhesive glue.

I colored the flower cup with Leisure Arts Watercolor Pencils and waterbrush, then I fussy cut it with micro-tip scissors, and I added it on the card with 3D foam tape. I fussy cut the sentiment around the words and added it on the card with 3D foam tape, too. I finished this card with some metallic holographic sequins from my stash.

This third card I created using the new Hey Friend stamp set that will be perfect for making handmade cards and gift for friends. For this card, I go with clean-and-simple style.

I simply colored the feathers using Leisure Arts Watercolor Pencils and waterbrush, fussy cut them with micro-tip scissors. After stamping and added some black splatters on the cardstock, I trimmed the sentiment cardstock panel smaller than the purple card base and I added it on the card with adhesive glue.

I added the feathers on the card with adhesive glue and 3D foam tape and embellished it with some teal sequins I have in my stash.

For my fourth card, I use the new Tea Cup Floret stamp set. I love this beautiful tea cup with flower, and the encouraging sentiments!

I started with creating the background by brushing some of the masking fluid using small flat brush on a watercolor paper, dried it with craft heater, and the I brushed some of brown watercolor paint. The masking fluid resists the watercolor paint and that give the painted-grungy-wood-panel-look background. I trimmed it smaller that the 5×7 white card.

I colored the tea cut with Sakura Koi Travel watercolor paint set and waterbrush. After the paint dried I fussy cut it with micro-tip scissors. I added it on the card with adhesive glue.

For the sentiment, I cut it with the smallest die from ODBD – Large Banner Dies, wrapped it with some natural burlap twine, and I added it on the card with some 3D foam tape. I embellished this card with some of the white pearl gems from my stash.

My last card for this blog hop is using the new encouraging Bible verses stamp set called, He Will Sustain You. These are some of my most favorite Bible verses and I love this set becuase I can also use them on Bible journaling projects.

But this time, I made a card with this stamp set. I printed out one of the Pink & Blue Watercolor Digital Papers from Graciellie Design (visit her etsy store for digital products). I trimmed it to fit on an A4 White card, I added it with adhesive glue. Then I added the silver glitter cardstock strip on the side, and wrapped it with some natural burlap twine.

I cut out the sentiment using one of the ODBD – Pierced Rectangles Dies and then I added on the card with adhesive glue. I embellished it with some of the silver sequins from my stash.

I hope you all enjoy these cards today and find ideas using the new Graciellie Design stamp sets. And…. now… to the blog hopping! Your next hop is my friend, Esther.

Project Thursday ~ You’re A Fantastic Friend

Precious Remembrance Shop

Hello everyone… Helen is here. For today Project Thursday, I have a fun black and white card for a fantastic friend to share with you all.

I am sharing this project over Precious Remembrance Blog. Stamps I use on my cards today are the new Little Things Stamp SetOh So Fun Stamp Set, and Blossom Stamp Set. I started with creating the black and white polkadots and tripes background.

I stamped the polkadots stripe stamp from Little Things Stamp Set using VersaFine Clair Nocturne Ink Pad with MISTI and Creative Corners. I stamped one stripe, and then move up the cardstock 1 inch and then stamp again. I repeated the step until the whole panel stamped.

I trimmed the background panel very slightly smaller, I added one of the Mini White Doilies on it, bit off the edge and wrapped it on the edge of the panel,  and added it on an A2 White Card with dries-clear adhesive.

I stamped the flowers from Blossom Stamp Set with VersaMark Ink Pad on a piece of Vellum Paper, then sprinkle them with White Embossing Powder that I mixed it with some Holographic Embossing Powder for extra sparkle. I heat set them with craft heater. Then, I fussy cut the flowers with micro-tip scissors. I used one of them on the jar.

Then I stamped the jar and sentiment from Oh So Fun Stamp Set and also one of the sentiment from Little Things Stamp Set using VersaFine Clair Nocturne Ink Pad on a different white cardstock using MISTI. After that, I fussy cut the jar with micro-tip scissors and trimmed the sentiments into sentiment strips with paper trimmer. I added someVersaFine Clair Nocturne Ink Pad on one of the sentiment strips using Sponge Dauber.

I added the jar on the card with dries-clear adhesive glue, next I added the flower on it. Then, I added the sentiment strips on the card with dries-adhesive glue, and the other one with 3D foam tape for extra dimension.

My black and white card is done 🙂 I hope you all enjoy it today. THANK YOU for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
