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.

Spring & Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Day 6 – Cup of Love

Hello everyone… Welcome to the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!!! It is a 1-week long link up party where you can participate and find inspirations from other coffee/tea/cocoa loving cardmakers and papercrafters. And… LOTS of prizes to win from amazing Super Sponsors!

Today is the Day 6 and I have a card and a mixed media tag I created using  Unity Stamp Company – Cup of Love and Our Daily Bread Designs – Pierced Rectangles Dies. They are two the 87 amazing Super Sponsors!

On my card, I simply stamped the girl image with VersaFine Onyx Black with Mini MISTI on a white cardstock. Then, I cut it with ODBD – Pierced Rectangles Dies. I also cut out 2 patterned papers using the same die.

I added the background patterned paper on an A2 White Card, then I added the layers of rectangles on the card with the adhesive glue.

I stamped the sentiment with VersaFine Onyx Black on a soft pink cardstock, trimmed it into a banner, and added it on the card with 3D foam tape. I embellished the card with gold sequins.

My mixed media tag, I created 2 tags from Canson watercolor paper. I added some of the yellow and green spray paints on one tag and then I added another tag on top of it. I press it with paper towel so both tags got the prints.

I dried the tags, and used one of them for this project. On a craft mat, I squeezed some of adhesive glue, picked up with flat small brush, and then brushed some of them on the left top corner and right bottom corner. I let it sit for a while to dry or until kindda tacky to touch. I added a piece of gold foil paper on the tag, and I got the brushed foil textures on the tag.

After that to create more background texture, I doodle circle on the tag using glue pen, let it dry, and then I added the red foil paper on it.

For the girl image, I stamped it using VersaFine Onyx Black using Second Generation Stamping Technique, and then I colored it with Arteza Woodless Watercolored Pencils and waterbrush. I fussy cut it with micro-tip scissors. I added it on the tag with 3D foam tape and adhesive glue.

I stamped the sentiment with VersaFine Onyx Black on a white cardstock and I fussy cut it following the shape of the sentiment. Then, I added it on the tag with 3D foam tape and adhesive glue.

Both card and tag are done. I hope you all enjoy them…

Spring & Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Day 1 – But First Coffee Talks

It is a 1-week long link up party where you can participate and find inspirations from other coffee/tea/cocoa loving cardmakers and papercrafters. And… LOTS of prizes to win from amazing Super Sponsors! Let’s grab your favorite drinks and get hopping with us!!!

Today I have 2 coffee cards to share with you on this Day 1 Coffee Lover Blog Hop. I created them using Joy Clair – coffee stamp collection. Joy Clair is one of the amazing super sponsors. Visit their blog to see more coffee inspirations from the design team.

When I am thinking Summer, first thing that I came up in my mind is Father’s Day. This day marks the beginning of the Summer. So… my first card is a Father’s Day card for coffee loving dad. We know one in our home!!!

On my first card, I am using 3 new Joy Clair stamp sets that were just released this month. I use the new 6×8 Coffee Talk stamp set. On the background, I use the Broken Brick Backgound stamp, and for the sentiment, I use the new Classic Father’s Day stamp set.

I stamped the background with VersaMark in on a light grey cardstock using my MISTI, then I added some clear embossing powder, and heat set it with craft heater. After that, using sponge applicator, I added some of the VersaMagic Cloud White ink on the paper. I added some splatters on it with Fireworks! London Fog Shimmer Spray and white acrylic paint, too.

I cut a triangle on one of the side of the background pannel, and then using my paper distresser tool, I distressed the edges of the card stock.

I marked the slit gonna be and then I stamped the sentiment with VersaFine Clair Pinecone on the white card. I added the background panel on the card with dries-clear adhesive glue.

For the coffee cup, I stamped it with VersaFine Clair Pinecone, sprinkle with clear embossing powder and then heat set it. I did it twice using my MISTI for extra thick embossed image. To color the hearts in the cup, I dab a little bit of the VersaFine Clair Pinecone on the craft mat, sprayed with a little bit of the StazOn All Purpose Stamp Cleaner, picked it up with small round waterbrush. Yes… VersaFine Clair can be used as watercolor paint with the stamp cleaner… how cool is that???

My second, as you can see, it is inspired by Spring colors and butterflies. I use the Coffee To Go Background Stamp, Coffee Quotes Stamp Set, and Butterfly Kisses Stamp Set on this card.

I started with creating the background using Distress Oxide Inks (Worn Lipstick, Brocken China, and Fossilized Amber) using smooshing technique. It is simply dabbing the ink on the craft mat, spray with water, and dab the watercolor paper on it. It is fun technique to watch how these 3 colors mixed together and create the secondary colors, and turn it into rainbow colors.

To get the layers of colors, I dried panel each time I add color. And then when the adding colors is done, I sprayed it one more time with Distress Sprayer bottle, let it sit for couple of seconds, and then I dabbed the water off the panel with paper towel to get more distress look on it. Once again I dried it with craft heater.

When the background all dry well, I treated it with anti-static powder, stamped the Coffee To Go Background stamp with VersaMark ink pad using my MISTI, sprinkle with glitter black embossing powder, and heat set it with craft heater.

I trimmed the background panel smaller to fit on the A2 white card. I added it on the card with dries-clear adhesive glue.

For the sentiment, I stamped one of the Coffee Quotes with VersaFine Clair Glamorous using my MISTI. Then I trimmed it into sentiment banner and wrapped some natural twine on the side. I added the sentiment banner on the card with 3D foam tape for extra dimensional.

For the butterflies, I stamped them with VersaFine Nocturne Ink and colored them with Leisure Arts Watercolored Pencils. I colored just the top with pink, and the center with light blue, and then using waterbrush, I blended the colors and got the shadow of purple on them. After the colors dried, I fussy cut them with micro-tip scissors and added then on the card with 3D foam tape and glue.

I hope you all enjoy these cards today and I hope you all will be joining us this week and share with us your coffee/tea/cocoa Spring-Summer themed projects at Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog. See you all there!

THANKS A LATTE for stopping by my blog today! Have a wonderful and caffeinated day!!!
