Graciellie Design Inspiration Blog Hop

Can you believe it’s the middle of August already?  Today the design team from Graciellie Design is back with a little mid-month inspiration for you.

You should have arrived here from Arjeta’s blog.  If not, head back to the Graciellie Design Blog which is the beginning of the hop.
This gorgeous Magnolia Dreams Collection from Graciellie Design includes a digital stamp set, digital paper pack and an SVG set of 5 cuts that coordinate with each other.

I used my Silhouette to cut the beautiful background design for my card in bright pink cardstock and adhered it to a piece of shimmery white card stock.  I sized the sentiment from the Magnolia Dreams Digital Collection to fit in the oval die cut I selected and matted that with another oval and then a pierced stacker die.  I love using digital sentiments as I can change them to whatever size I want for my project.

I wrapped 5/8″ Misty Turquoise Shimmer Satin around the top third of my main panel and topped that with 3/8″ Hot Pink Diamond Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  The sentiment panel was mounted over the ribbon with foam squares for a little dimension.
I had a few scrap pieces of digital paper that I printed from my first project (which you can view HERE) and I used that for the mat around my sentiment and to create my flower.  This is a great way to use up those little scraps you don’t want to throw away.
I topped my card off with a pretty bi-color bow that I created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 using 5/8″ Turquoise and Shocking Pink Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  The center of the bow is adorned with a pretty Heart Shape Flat Back Pearl Embellishment.

Happy Anniversary Card

Hi friends. Today I’m sharing a pretty floral anniversary card that I made with some of my favorite dies from Cheery Lynn Designs and a great digital sentiment from Graciellie Design.
My card today features one of the sentiments from the Elegant Greetings set from Graciellie Design.  I love to feature sentiments on my card along with pretty handmade flowers.  This collection has lots of useful sentiments along with a pretty flower image.

I don’t think it’s any secret that I LOVE the floral dies from Cheery Lynn Designs too. Today I’m featuring the Daisy Strip and foliage from the Floral Bouquet kit.

My card is built much like all the cards I make – lots of layers!  It’s pretty easy to see from the photo what layers I created which have a layer of white mulberry paper at the bottom before the 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ card base.

I cut the Lattice Frame die in white and adhered it to a mottled purple background paper that I created using Distress Inks.  I then trimmed that down to the size I needed for my top layer.  The pretty Happy Anniversary digital stamp from Graciellie Design was printed and then trimmed to size and layered on purple cardstock.

There is a layer of 5/8″ Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon topped with 3/8″ Mixed Purple Bold Diagonal Grosgrain Ribbon under the sentiment and then that is layered over an aqua rectangle and affixed to the front of the card.  I created and shaped my daisies and arranged them along with the foliage under my sentiment.

Cheery Lynn Designs dies used:
FR-16 Lattice
B259 Daisy Strip
My card is topped off with a pretty bi-color bow created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 using two ribbons from the July Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  The July Assortment is available through the end of August 2017.
