Graciellie Design Birthday Blog Hop

Hello everyone and welcome to Graciellie Design Birthday Blog Hop! So… come and join the party!

We are celebrating Gracie’s birthday with a blog hop featuring her new digital stamps, $25 gift card giveaway, and… awesome 40% oFF Sale at Graciellie Desing shop!!!

Here are my cards today featuring the 2 of 6 new digital stamp sets:

On my first card, I use this Embrace The Moments Digital Stamp Set. I love this digital stamp set with cute camera, polaroid frame, and lifting-up sentiments. They are perfect of any occasion and any type of projects.

I use Pixelmator Pro (a photo editor program similar to Photoshop) to create the layout for my card. I used the camera, polaroid frame, and sentiment. I copied the camera out side the frame so I would have extra camera.

Then, I printed the images on a white cardstock in black and white with inkjet printer. After that, I colored them with Prismacolors Pencils. I fussy cut the frame and the extra camera.

I added some of the Purple Glitter Stickles and Clear Glitter Stickles on the camera and then I added it on top of the camera inside the polaroid frame with 3D foam adhesive for extra dimension.

I printed one of the patterned paper from the Rainbow Vibes Digital Paper Pack to use on the background.

I embellished the card with some of the purple glitter gems I had in my stash.

And for my second card, I use this Tulips & Daisies Digital Stamp Set. This digital stamp set is packed with a tulip flower, a daisy flower, and beautiful script sentiments. That tulip reminds me of my Giant Tulips I had in my garden couple years ago.

To create the front card for this second card, I used the same photo editor program and arrange the tulips, overlapping each other. On a letter size layout, I ended up have 4 front cards, each in 4.25″ x 5.5″ dimension.

I printed the image and sentiment with inkjet printer, trimmed into card front size, and then I colored the tulips with Prismacolors Pencils, too.

After the coloring, I cut the panel with Divinity Designs – Double Stitched Rectangles Dies with my Gemini Junior machine. I cut the sentiment with the Divinity Designs – Double Stitched Pennant Flags Dies.

I added the outside frame cut out directly on the card with permanent adhesive runner, and then add the middle cut out on the card with 3D foam adhesive for extra dimension.

Then I added the sentiment on the card with permanent adhesive runner. I embellished the card with some sequins from my stash.

A Graduation Card | Oh The Places You’ll Go

Hello everyone… Happy Memorial Day! This weekend also, we had couple girls from our youth group graduated from High School.

This quote is one of our favorites from Dr. Seuss’ books that my kids read. And it is a cute idea for a graduation card.

I used one of the Rainbow Vibes Digital Paper Pack from Graciellie Design for the background.

And for the image and sentiment, they are from the Going Places stamp set is from Joy Clair. I stamped the image and sentiment with VersaFine Clair Nocturne and colored it with Arteza Real Brush Pens and water brush.

I cut both the rainbow paper and front panel with the Fancy Frames dies set is from Craftin Desert Divas. I stacked them in the center of top-folded A2 white card with permanent adhesive glue. And then, I wrap the teal ribbon around the top fold and made a bow. The ribbon is from my stash.

That is for today’s project. I hope you all have a fabulous holiday time with your family and friends. Thanks for stopping by!

Cupcake, Cake, Balloon, and Lollipop For Birthday Cards

Hello hello hello… Today, I have three birthday cards to share with you all that I created with digital stamp sets and digital papers.

My first card, I use ballon pattern from the Birthday Party Digital Paper Pack for the background card. I cut out the frames using Fancy Frames Dies and I added it on the card.

I printed the cupcake from Cupcake Wishes Digital Stamp Set on a watercolor paper with inkjet. I always print my images a day before for watercoloring, but it is always okay to print it on the same day and dry it with craft heater before coloring it.

I colored it with Arteza Real Brush Pens and water brush. I fussy cut it with scissors. I added some Purple Stickles on the cupcakes for the cupcake decoration. They look like candies on cupcake for sure. I added the cupcake inside the frame with 3D foam tape.

For the sentiment, I printed a bunch of them on white cardstock, and I use dies to cut it with one of the Double Stitched Banners Dies. I added on the cupcake with adhesive.

My second card is a clean and simple card with digital paper and sentiment. I printed the sentiment from It’s Cake Time Digital Stamp Set with laser printer, I added some DecoFoil Pink Melon and I run it through my laminating machine. I cut it with one of the Double Stitched Banners Dies. I embellished the card with tule ribbon. That’s it. Quick, simple Birthday Card to make. The digital paper is already gorgeous for the background!

My third card is a clean and simple card that I think it is also great for guys card. I used one of the marble papers I had in my stash for the background.

I printed the lollipop cake from It’s Cake Time Digital Stamp on a watercolor paper with inkjet. I dried the printed image with craft heater and then I colored it with Arteza Real Brush Pens and water brush. I dried the cake with craft heater and then fussy cut it with scissors.

I added some Gold Stickles for the cake sprinkles. I used Posca White Pen for to trace the lollipops.

For the sentiment, I printed it on laser printer and then added the foil with laminating maching. I trimmed it into sentiment banner with scissors.

Hello hello hello everyone… Nowadays, electronic email and sending message on Social Media platforms becoming easy ways to communicate, but sending a card is one of the ways to send someone’s love, encourage, and it can lift their spirit up, especially in times that they need it.

My card today is a clean and simple card that I created with a Bible verse from Isaiah 28:29. You can grab this free digital stamp from Word Art Wednesday Challenge #388 – #389. And this week challenge sponsor is Joy Clair.

I open the digital stamp sentiment with image with Silhouette Studio Software. I divided the page into 4 section and each section is in 4.25 inch x 5.5 inch. They fit perfectly on a front A2 card. I printed the sentiments on a letter size white cardstock, and then trimmed them into 4 panels.

I stamped one of the flower cluster images from the Martha’s Flowers Stamp Set on the top of the panel with VersaFine Clair Nocturne Ink Pad and MISTI. After that, I dried the stamped image with craft heater.

I colored the flower cluster image with Pearlescent Water Color Paint and water brush. I dried the watercolor paint and then I cut it with one of the Elegant Stitched Dot Edge Dies.

I trimmed Bazzill Dotted Swiss Cardstock into 4.25 inch x 5.5 inch and I added it on an A2 white card base with Tombow Mono Permanent Adhesive. Then, I added the sentiment panel on top of the card with the same adhesive. I embellished the card with some natural twine ribbon on top of the card.
