And…The Fall Color combos is my inspiration to create these Thank You CAS card set for today Project Thursday. I created these cards using the Thanks Stamp Set and Fall Colors Stamp Set. I am sharing a tutorial how to create these cards on Precious Remembrance Shop Blog today using the heat-embossing/watercolor resist project.

I used ADORNit Watercolor Cakes and Waterbrush to create the paint the washes on the background and then I used the Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies – CUTplorations to cut out the panels. For stamping, I used VersaMark Ink Pad and VersaFine Clair ink pad. The embossing powder I used on these cards is a mix of Ranger Super Fine White Embossing Powder and Holographic Glitter Embossing Powder.

Collaboration Blog Hop ~ Cups of Tea For You

Coffee Loving Cardmakers & Our Daily Bread Designs

Hello everyone… Welcome to the Collaboration Blog Hop with Coffee Lovercardmakers and Our Daily Bread Designs.

This blog hop starts at Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog. Head over there to read the full details on this blog hop. You should arrive from my teammate, Kerry Urbatch.

Today, I have couple of tea themed cards to share with you all.

On my first card, I used the patterned and solid papers from the Latte Love 6×6 Paper Pads together with the Cups and Mugs Dies and Layered Lacey Ovals Dies.

The sentiment is from the Tea Time Stamp Set that I stamped on a white cardstock and cut it with one of the Pennant Flags Dies.

I embellished this card with some of the clear gems.

For my second card, it is a shaker birthday card. For the background, frame, and sentiment banner, I used the patterned and solid papers from the Latte Love 6×6 Paper Pads.

I made the frame using 2 sizes of the Double Stitched Squares Dies. After that, I added a piece of acetate plastic on the back of the frame using strong double-sided tape.

Next, I added some thick fun foam on the back of the frame, and then added more strong double-sided tape on them.

I added some of the brown and gold sequin assortment in the middle of the card, and then I added the frame on it.”

I heat-embossed the sentiment from the Tea Time Stamp Set using VersaMark Ink Pad and Black Glitter Finished Embossing Powder. And then I cut it using one of the Double Stitched Pennant Flags Dies.

I added the sentiment banner on the frame with Art Glitter dries-clear adhesive glue. It is a strong glue that works on any surface.

I stamped the tea pot image and rose bouquet image from the Tea Time Stamp Set using VersaFine Onyx Black Ink Pad on a piece of watercolor paper.

I colored the images with watercolor pencils, dried them with craft heater, and then I fussy cut them with micro-tip scissors.

I added the teapot on the frame with Art Glitter dries-clear adhesive glue and then added the rose bouquet on the tea pot with think 3D foam tape.

Happy National Coloring Book Day ~ Blossom Bliss Blog Hop

Hello everyone… Welcome to the Blossom Bliss Blog Hop! Happy National Coloring Book Day!!! Today, I am joining STAMPlorations Design Team to celebrate this fun coloring book day and I have 3 coloring project to share with you all!

My first project is an encouragement card. I using one of the Blossom Bliss Coloring Book pages that I colored it with Prismacolors Pencils. The sentiment is from the Faith Expressions Stamp Set. I used the Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies to cut out the watercolored background panel and the coloring page.

My second project is another card with the Blossom Bliss Coloring Book Page that I colored it using Pearlesscent Watercolor Paint. It looks so pearly and glittery in real live…

The butterflies are from the Trendy Butterflies 2 Stamp Set. I stamped them on white cardstock with VersaFine Onyx Black and then colored them with the Pearlescents Watercolor Paint. Then I fussy cut them with scissors. I curled the wings little bit with stylus for extra dimension to them and then I added them on the card with dries-clear adhesive glue.

And for the sentiment is from the Fond Expressions Stamp Set that I stamped it with VersaFine Onyx Black on a white cardstock and trimmed it into sentiment strip.

And my third project is an art journal. I applied thin coat layer of clear gesso on the Blossom Bliss Coloring Book Page and then colored with Distress Crayons and waterbrush.

I cut out the black frame with Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies and then I added the colored page on the back of it.

I stamped the sentiments from Faith Expressions Stamp Set and Fond Expressions 2 Stamp Set on white cardstock with VersaFine Onyx Black and trimmed them. I drew the lines around the word to make a thin frame.

On the background of my art journal, I added the acrylic paints with brayer, and then I applied some white gesso with palette knife. Next, I added black acrylic paint using Crisscrossed ARTploration Stencil and make up foam on both corners.

I sprayed some of the Marabu Spray Paints on the page for extra splash of colors. I dried the whole page with craft heater.

And then, without using stamping block, I stamped randomly the script from the Mixed Media Element Stamp Set with Ranger Archival Black Ink Pad on both corner.

Final step, I added the framed colored page in the middle of the page with dries-clear adhesive glue. And then I added the words around the page with dries-clear adhesive glue.

Sending Big Hugs ~ Heat Embossing Resist With Distress Crayon

Hello everyone… It is August already! I know Summer is almost the end of the season and you still have list to do on your bucket list… but let’s make every moment counts and making memory every day with your loved ones.

Today, I am inspired by the colors and the flowers on this mood board at Joy Clair August Challenge when I created my card. This is a monthly challenge that you all are invited to play along using any old and new stamps from different companies from your stash, BUT if you use any Joy Clair stamp sets, you have the double of opportunities to win the prize!!!

This month, we are challenge to create any projects using any technique. So… I am using these stamp sets on my card today and using Heat Embossing Resist technique with White Embossing Powder and Distress Crayon.


I started with creating the flower. I stamped one of the flowers from Spring Time Flowers stamp set on a watercolor paper using Mini MISTI and VersaMark Ink Pad. Then I added the Super FIne White Embossing Powder on the stamped image, and heat it with craft heater.

To color the flower, I scribble some of the Aged Mahogany Distress Crayon on craft mat, and picked the color up with waterbrush. I loved how it turned out look liked distressed watercolored flower cluster. I set it aside to dry. After that, I fussy cut the flower cluster with micro-trip scissors.

I stamped the Wood Background Stamp on a watercolor paper using Mini MISTI and VersaMark Ink Pad. Then I sprinkled some of the Super Fine White Embossing Powder. I heat it up with craft heater. Instead of scribble the crayon on craft mat, I colored the stamped image directly. Simply scribbled on the surface like kid, and then using baby wipe, I blended the color and with this step, the color resist the embossed wood background image.

After that step, I trimmed the panel down to 4.75″ x 4.25″ and I added it on a A2 White Card with strong dries-clear adhesive glue.

I added the fussy cut flower cluster on the card with 3D foam tape for extra dimension.

For the sentiment, I stamped the words from the Hello Sentiments Stamp Set on a white cardstock with VersaFine Onyx Black. I trimmed the 2 words into pieces and doodled the lines to create mini frame. For the word “sending”, I simply fussy cut it around the word. I added them on the card with dries-clear adhesive glue.

The card is done. I hope this inspire you… and hopefully you will have a chance to play along with the Joy Clair August Challenge. Share with us your project and technique that you use to create it.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today. Have a wonderful day!

Sending Smiles and Happy Vibes

Gracille Design

Hello everyone… July almost ends! I hope you all have been having great season, keep creating memories and living every moment with thanksgiving. I hope this card today gives you all smiles and happy vibes…

I created this card using the Happiness Digital Stamp Set, one of the newest digital stamp sets from Graciellie Design with heat embossing and watercoloring techniques.

First, I printed the mason jar image on a white cardstock and dried the ink with craft heater. Once the ink dried, I traced the lines with VersaMarker Original (clear pen), and them I sprinkled the glitter embossing powder. I used craft heater to heat set the embossing powder. I did this step one small area at a time. It takes some times to do it.

After the mason jar image is embossed, I colored it with Koi Watercolor paints. And then I fussy cut the image with micro-tips scissors when the image was totally dry.

I printed the sentiment on a white cardstock and trimmed it into sentiment strip. I added it on the stripes patterned card with adhesive glue. Then, I added the mason jar with 3D foam tape.

The card is done. I hope you all are inspired today. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog… Have a wonderful day!
