Hello friends and welcome to the October mid-month Graciellie Design Inspiration Blog Hop. We are continuing to celebrate the new stamp release from Unity Stamp Company featuring beautiful images and sentiments from Graciellie Design.
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.
Today I’m working with the Sending Kindness stamp set from Unity Stamp Company which includes this pretty flower image, a pear, a bee and 5 sentiments. So versatile!
I am also honored to be working with some great new tools this month from Westcott Brand. You can see the wonderful scissors I’ve been working with in the photo below. Surprise bonus is that they coordinate with the color of my project! lol I’m also in love with the wonderful craft knife from Westcott Brand with the soft grip which you will see in the next photo also with the precision scissors that come with a lanyard. No more lost scissors!!I decided to give watercolors a go this time and considering I have no idea what I’m doing with watercolors, it didn’t come out half bad…
I stayed in a kinda-sorta autumn color palette and included a little burst of apple green. I like the way it turned out paired with the brown tones.
For the inside of my card, I stamped the sentiment at the top of the card and added a bee at the bottom left. I then created some layers with the brown cardstock and some pretty natural mulberry paper. Why not make the inside of the card pretty too?!
I created my pretty bi-color bow on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using 5/8″ Moss/Cream Plaid Ribbon and 5/8″ Apple Green Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon. The center of the bow is adorned with a lovely Antique Vintage Flower Charm.
