Graciellie Design Stamp Release Blog Hop and Giveaway!

This is my second post of the day. For the Live & Love Crafts May Challenge, please click HERE.

Hello, sweet friends! We're celebrating the newest release from Graciellie Design's Digital Stamps with a blog hop! Gracie's stamps are versatile and beautiful, sure to inspire sweet creativity. Today I am sharing a card featuring one of the new sets titled Classic Greetings.
Here is the cover for the gorgeous set:
The floral stamp is so pretty and I love the abundance of sentiments in varying themes. Gracie's images are such fun to color! My encouragement card is going to a family in need of blossoming love.
I printed the image in a soft-lines manner... baby steps to no-lines coloring. :o) I colored it up with Copics and then generously covered it in Star Dust. The recipient loves sparkle as much as I (truly!), so I wanted them to sparkle for her. My papers are from Maja Design's Vintage Spring Basics. Encircling Gracie's stamps in love is a Sue Wilson Italian Decorative Frame, which is adorned with a layered Cheery Lynn Designs butterfly. A Joy! Crafts Lacey Square rests beneath, while my card base is made with Go Kreate's Large Frame Frilly #10.

This and other new digital stamp sets can be found HERE for instant download. These stamps are ready to print and are perfect for all papercrafting projects.

Blossoms and Butterflies at Live & Love Crafts!

This is my first of two posts today. For the Graciellie Design Stamp Release blog hop, please click HERE.

Happy May, sparkly friends! It's time for a new challenge at Live & Love Crafts and this month we're playing with Blossoms and Butterflies!

For my project, I used a bunch of Sandy's new goodies to create a Mother's Day card. This is not for my mom, but rather will be included in a box of love I'm mailing out tomorrow. The teen cancer warrior who I made cards for has an amazing mom who I've come to treasure, so this is for the daughter to give since she is unable to do anything unassisted. ♥︎
My papers are from Maja Design's Vintage Romance, their newest release. I am smitten! ♥︎ What a gorgeous collection. The card base was made with Go Kreate's Frame Frilly 7. To pick up the sweet pinks of the flowers, I added pops of pink throughout my design.
I played with the new Wycinanka chippies again. ♥︎ The moment our challenge theme was set, I knew I would feature this beautiful Rainforest Butterfly. Her pearl-accented flourish is from My Favorite Things. I also used a chippie Romance Corner. The Wycinanka pieces have been covered in Aged Gold Frantage. The whimsical scrollwork was calling for a sprinkling of pearls. ;)
A plethora of new trims means I cannot decide which to use, so I layered. :o) The Tulle Trim is unbelievably soft and wispy. I topped it with pink Amabelle (one of my favorites) and lined it with pink pearl garland. The bow was made with Juliette lace and is centered with a rhinestone pearl button.
I hope it fills both of their battling hearts with sweet, healing love. Thank you for fluttering on by and I wish you a sparkly happy day!

Fly ♥︎

Happy Friday, sweet friends! I'm posting on the Live & Love Crafts blog today, sharing a card with Pion Design's beautiful Scent of Lavender collection. I also had a play with some new LLC goodies and am in love. ♥︎

I am bringing the beauty and joy of Spring to a young cancer warrior, encouraging her to fly high above the overwhelming heartache. ♥︎
The purple florals from Scent of Lavender are especially beautiful, which I paired with two shades of Pion's heavyweight Palette collection: Purple I and Purple IV. Ruffling along the bottom is the new Shabbylicious Ruffle Lace, which is my new favorite! I want to put it on everything in my house. ♥︎
Sandy has added so many gorgeous products to her store and I am very excited about the Wycinanka chippies. The focal point of my card is from their Spring Circles set, upon which I layered Pion butterflies. My project is ruffling with love, so I tucked a small part of the Background Hearts within the lace. All of the chippies on my card are embossed with Shabby White Frantage.
Fly is from Wycinanka's Make Art word set, which rests above a sprinkling of Background Hearts. Woven within my Wild Orchid Crafts arrangements is lovely pearl garland. The garland is available in several gorgeous colors.

(Forgive the photography of this final picture especially... I'm including it only because it shows the inside. I wish I had time to re-do these photos!)
My card base is made with Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles. The base for my chippie focal point is from Sue Wilson's Italian Decorative Frames. The leaves are a Tattered Lace die. Thank you for fluttering on by and I wish you a beautiful weekend! ♥︎
