Blog Hop Inspiration - Magnolia Dreams.


I recently got my Heidi Swapp Minc machine and so today my blog is all about my foiling madness. (grin)
 Here is the card:

 The gold foiling more clear....

I first created the background with Magnolia Dreams Border svg file. A bit about how I created the background...
I inserted the border svg file on word and reduced the size to about 13cm x 5cm. I then copy pasted it two more times to get a three strip border BG. I adjust the images so that I got a continuous image. I printed the same in a laser jet printer and foiled it with gold foil paper. I printed the sentiment and foiled it with red foil paper. The card base is 4" x 5.5". I trimmed the foiled sheet 1/8" smaller and mounted it with foam tape and the sentiment also. I printed a Magnolia flower on vellum sheet and foiled with gold foil. I tucked it below the sentiment with clear foam tape.

Sending Butterfly Kisses....

Hello friends,

Today sharing my DT post for Conie Fong using the didgi 'Butterfly Kisses'. You can find this digi at her Etsy shop.

I colored the image with copics. I used Polychromos very lightly to highlight the flowers. I added pattern paper from Bob n Betty and added few die cuts. I added few handmade foamiran flowers and a die cut butterfly to finish the card.

This is my inspiration post for the Monthly challenge for August - 'Use Die cut/s'. Hope My card has inspired to participate in the challenge. You can find the Conie Fong FB group here.

Till next time - Happy crafting!!

Hello friends,

It is time for new release at Graciellie Design. You would have already seen the stamps release this month and gone through the blog hop on August 1st (Yesterday :) ) with Paper Temptress. If you haven't checked the lovely prizes with the blog hop, you can do it here

For today I am using the beautiful 'Magnolia' stamp set.

I printed the image and colored with copic markers. I fussy cut the images. I cut one of the svg files with my Cameo and used as stencil to create background. I used Altenew inks for stencilling. I added the panel to white card base and finished by adding the sentiment and few enamel dots.
