Spooky Hello…

Hello hello hello everyone… Here’s a little spooky hello card for you. It might be a little early for Halloween card, but since today is Friday the 13th, why not, right?

I use one of the newly released digital stamp sets from Graciellie Design called, Spooky Hello Mega Digital Stamp Set. But as you can see yourself, it is not a scary spooky theme stamp set.

I like to use Silhouette Studio software to work with digital stamp sets. I used the print-and-cut with the pumpkin. I printed it with Laser printer, and then cut it with Silhouette Cameo 3.

After that, I added a piece of the Gina K. Designs Fancy Foil – Dazzling Orange on the pumpkin, put it inside the carrier pocket, and then run it through the laminator. When it’s cold, I removed the foil and voila! Glimmer, dazzling, pumpkin!

You can leave as is, it is cute already. But, I decided to colored the pumpkin with Leisure Arts Double Ended Markers and waterbrush.

For the background, the bottom panel, I created it with some alcohol inks and DecoFoil Gold Transfer Sheet on a glossy photo paper. I trimmed it and added on the white card with E-Z Runner Grand.

The second patterned background, I created it using the candycorn image from the same digital stamp set. I duplicated it and printed it on a 8.5 x 11 white cardstock with Laser Printer in black and white. After that I colored the candycorns with Leisure Arts Double Ended Markers. I cut it with one of the Craftin Desert Divas – Fancy Frames. I added on top of the alcohol ink background with permanent adhesive glue.

I added some twine on the card for the wreath, and secure the twine with permanent adhesive glue. Then I added the pumpkin and sentiment label on the card with 3D foam tape.

I hope this card make this “Spooky Friday the 13th” be less spooky to you all… Thanks a bunch for stopping by today. Have a fabulous day!

Hello everyone… Wish you all a happy and good day today. I am thankful it is bit cooler here but we are still having Summer weather for sure. But, I hope this mixed media Fall card brings the Fall season early to you…

On this mixed media Fall card, I used the newly released digital stamp set, Grateful Heart, from Graciellie Design. This fall flower bouquet is absolutely GORGEOUS! I love the beautiful font combo set for the sentiments, too.

I open the PNG files with Silhouette Studio software, resized the flower, and I duplicated to 4 flower. I printed it with laser printer on a watercolor paper 90 lbs.

I trimmed the printed watercolored paper into 4 – 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ and then I colored one of them with Leisure Arts Double Ended Markers and watercolor brush. After that, I dried the panel with craft heater and then I cut it with one of the Divinity Designs – Double Stitched Rectangles Dies with Gemini Jr. Machine.

The patterned background, I created it with yellow and orange acrylic paints and gel printing plate. After the mono printed paper dried, I trimmed it into 4″ x 5 1/4″ and I added it on a white card base with E-Z Runner Grand.

I added the watercolored panel on top of the card with with E-Z Runner Grand and then I added some splatters with white acrylic paint spray, Finetec Gold metallic watercolor paint, and fan brush. I dried it one more time.

For the sentiment, I printed some of them on a white cardstock, and then cut one of them with the Divinity Design – Double Stitched Pennant Flags Dies using my Gemini Jr. Machine. I added the sentiment label on the card with 3D foam tape for extra dimension.

Graciellie Design Favorite Ever Blog Hop & Giveaway

Hello hello hello everyone! Happy Monday… Let’s start this week with new hope, thanksgiving, and positive thoughts. And… Today I have several cards to share with you with hope they will make you smile.

These cards I created using some of my favorites digital stamps, digital SVG cutting files, and digital papers from Gracillie Design. Gracie and her design team are also sharing their projects. Check the blog hop details and list at Gracie’s blog today. Find out how you can enter the giveaway at the bottom of this post.

My first card, I used one of the beautiful Magnolia Dreams digital papers pack for the background. I printed it on a 4×6 photo paper, trimmed it into 4″x5.25″, and added it on top of a A4 white card with E-Z Runner Grand.

I cut out couple white cardstock with one of the Craftin Desert Divas – Inside Scalloped Rectangles Dies, then I stacked them together with permanent adhesive glue. I added the vellum paper on it with the permanent adhesive glue and then I added on the card with the same adhesive. I held it down with large acrylic stamping block for couple minutes to make sure it dried well.

I printed the 4 flower mug images from the Fresh Start Digital Stamp Set on a watercolor paper with laser printer. And then I cut them with my Silhouette Cameo 3 using PixScan Mat and their software for scan and cut.

I colored the flowers with Leisure Arts Double Ended Markers and waterbrush. I dried it with craft heater.

And then, carefully I dabbed some of the DecoFoil Liquid Adhesive using make up sponge around the mug, let it dried, and then I added the DecoFoil Silver Shattered Glass Foil Sheet on the cup and gently rubbed it to transfer the foil on the mug. I added it on the vellumed frame with 3D foam tape.

For the sentiment, I cut one of the DecoFoil Toner Sheets using my Silhouette Cameo 3 with the phrase from the Shine On SVG File. After that, I added the DecoFoil Turquoise Transfer Sheets and run it through the laminator. I distressed it a little bit with craft sanding block and I added it on the cup with DecoFoil Liquid Adhesive and some 3D foam tape, too.

On the second card, I used the Magnolia Dreams SVG Files for the background. I cut a piece of black cardstock with my Silhouette Cameo 3 using the background file and border file. I added the background on a white card with DecoFoil Liquid Adhesive.

Using the same technique, I print-and-cut the flower from the Life Happens Digital Stamp Set using Silhouette Cameo 3 and watercolor paper. I colored the flower with Leisure Arts Double Ended Markers and waterbrush. I dried it with craft heater and then I added it on the card with DecoFoil Liquid Adhesive. I added some white paint splatters on the card with acrylic spray paint and fan brush.

I also printed the sentiment on a white cardstock and I trimmed it into a sentiment label.

For the foiled sentiment, I cut Shine On SVG Files with the DecoFoil Toner Sheets and my Silhouette Cameo 3, this one I added the DecoFoil Silver Shattered Glass Foil Sheet and run it through laminator.

I added both of the sentiment word and label on the card with 3D foam tape and then embellished the card with some clear gems.

For this third CAS card, it is a pretty quick and easy to make. I used the border die cut that I cut before. It is from the Magnolia Dreams SVG Files. I added it on the top folded card with DecoFoil Liquid Adhesive. I added some white splatters using white acrylic spray paint and fan brush.

For the sentiment, it is one of the phrase from the Have Faith SVG Files. I used DecoFoil Toner Sheets and DecoFoil Turquoise Transfer Sheets. I used the same technique I did the the previous word die cuts using my Silhouette Cameo 3 dan laminator. I embellished this card with some of the natural twine ribbon.

With Love and Gratitude Gift Tag

Hello everyone… Over here, the weather is cooler compare to last week. Fall is coming near and it gets me to start thinking of the season of giving thanks. Today, I would love to share this simple Fall themed gift tag with you all.

I created the tag base using the tag SVG file from the Graciellie Design -Coffee Lovers SVG Files. I cut a heavyweight cardstock with Silhouette Cameo 3. And then I added some of the Vintage Photo Distress Ink, Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxide Ink, and Wild Honey Distress Oxide Ink using blending brush.

After that I sprayed it with water using the Distress Sprayer, let it sit for couple seconds, and than I dabbed it off with paper towel. Then I added some white paint splatters using white acrylic spray paint and brush. After that I dried it with craft heater.

I printed the 4 candle and flower images from the With Love & Gratitude Digital Stamp Set on a watercolor paper with laser printer. And then I cut them with my Silhouette Cameo 3 using PixScan Mat and their software for scan and cut.

After cutting it, I added the DecoFoil Gold Transfer Sheet on it, put in inside folded parchment paper, and then I run it though the laminator. And then I colored the flowers with Leisure Arts Double Ended Markers and waterbrush. I dried it with craft heater.

I colored the foiled image with Leisure Arts Double Ended Markers and waterbrush. I dried it with craft heater after coloring. I added the candle on the tag with 3D foam tape.

For the sentiment, I printed some of them on a white cardstock, and then I cut one of them with the Divinity Design – Double Stitched Pennant Flags Dies using my Gemini Jr. Machine. I added it on the tag with permanent adhesive glue and 3D foam tape.

I cut out a heavyweight white cardstock using the white bag using Divinity Designs – Card Caddy & Gift Bag Dies with Gemini Jr. Machine. I put the bag together using the double sided-tape.

I added the tag on the bag by clipped it with the mini wooded clip and some baker’s twine.

Anything Goes Week 402-403

THANKS a bunch for stopping by my blog today. Have a fabulous day!

Joy Clair 5th Anniversary and New Release Blog Hop

Welcome to the Joy Clair 5th Anniversary and New Release Blog Hop! We are so thankful you are here to join us celebrating this special birthday.

This blog hop, is not only Joy Clair design teams but also there are amazing guest designers sharing their projects showcasing Joy Clair clear stamps. You should arrive from Cornelia’s blog.

On my first project I use the new Everyday Collection: Crystal Background Stamp and You’re A Gem stamp set to create these CAS cards.

For extra blings to the gems and crystal, I used glitter cardstock for the background and I use glitter embossing powder to heat embossed the images.

I use resist-watercolor technique to create that crystal frame after that, I fussy cut them with scissors.

I stamped the sentiments in the middle of the crystal frames with VersaFine Clair ink pad.

These cards are super easy to make yet glittery and shiny.

For the second project, I created an art journal on my Traveler’s Notebook using the new Color By Faith collection: Shadow of The Almighty.

I started with creating the beach scene with white gesso and Gelatos.

I did not use any special technique. It is simply cover the pages with white gesso using flat brush and dry it.

After that, I scribble the Gelatos on the page and blended them with my finger. I used baby wipes to remove some of the blue color and the patterned left on the page turned into clouds.

I sprayed the page with Workable Fixative spray so the Gelatos won’t smeared or change.

After the background was done, I started to stamp the images on the page using VersaFine Clair ink pads. I dried it with craft heater. Colored the chair and umbrella with Dina Wakley Media Scribble Sticks.

I stamped the word “Psalms” with Lindsey Script Alpha stamp set and wrote the verse number with Tombow PITT Artist Pen.

Mixed Media Card | 1 Corinthians 16:14

Hello everyone… Happy Monday. Today, I would love to share this card with hope it will encourage you to do what you do with love. By doing that, you will encourage others, too.

I am in love with this new Peony Hugs Digital Stamp Bundle from Graciellie Design. In this digital stamp set, there are gorgeous images and uplifting sentiments which are great for any occasion cards, Bible journaling, and any type of projects you would like to make as gifts.

I use print-and-cut feature from Silhouette software. I printed the peony in mug with my inkjet printer on a white cardstock and cut it with my Silhoeutte Cameo 3.

And then I colored it with Prismacolors Pencils and coated it with some Wink of Stella clear brush. I set it aside to dry.

For the background, I use a watercolor paper. I sprayed some of the Pixie Spray on the Deco Foil Modern Links Stencil. I added it on the paper, then put some of the Black Ice Metallix Gel on the stencil, and spread it with baby wipe. That’s how I get the grungy, distressed look on the paper.

I put the paper in a box and then sprayed it with Maraby Art Sprays and blended the paints with water. I dried it with craft heater, and then I sprayed it again with some water and dabbed it off with paper towel. I added the finished panel on the a white card base with permanent adhesive glue.

I added the peony mug on the card with 3D foam tape for extra dimension. So instead of using gems or sequins, I added the extra bling by adding some dots around the mug with Deco Foil Adhesive Pen, let it dried, and then I added some of the Deco Foil Silver Shattered Glass Foil Transfer Sheet.

I used white acrylic paint and water for extra splatters on the card.

And I cut the printed sentiment using the Large Banner Die from Divinity Designs. I added it on the top of the card with permanent adhesive glue.

I hope this card cheer up your day! Thank you so much for stopping by!
