Graciellie's Your Kindness...

Hello there inky friends! I spent some time this weekend coloring...I just love coloring and there's something so calming and relaxing about coloring digital images by Graciellie Designs.  I printed this gorgeous floral spray from the new Your Kindness digi set on my home printer, fussy cut the image and then got to work coloring.  I selected a nice mix of pinks and oranges to help bring this image to life.  
After coloring the image, I added some sparkle here and there and added a golden bauble in the center.  I set it aside and started working on a background panel.  I decided I wanted a kraft panel but as I paired it with some plain cardstock, I was just not feeling the BLAH.  Soooo... I used the same colors used in the image and just colored randomly around the outside edge of a white panel.  
After finishing that, I mounted a stitched krafty panel onto this background layer.  This really helped bring the card together.  Next, I attached the sentiment panel (I printed it on an oval in MS word) using some pretty and soft ribbon.  Finally, I mounted the image onto this sentiment panel and placed the whole decorated panel onto a krafty card base.  
So gorgeous.  I love these colors together.  Now I need to spend some time thinking about who to send this card to.  I think it's a new fave! 
Love, love, love the mix of fonts in this set!  :)

RG Inspired: Cake Layers Bundle: Black and White...EAT CAKE

Hey there inky friends!  I'm back with one more card featuring this weeks fabulous bundle:  Cake Layers!  So what do you think?  Is it a MUST HAVE for you?  I hope I've shown you that this collection of stamp sets is not JUST for birthdays.  Lots and lots of amazing cards can be made for any theme!  

Today's card is totally inspired by RG and his love of Black and White styling!  I thought I'd create a fun card featuring the Confetti Creator background and the striped cake.  Of course I added a little pop of color with the flowers (and some deeeeelish Sugar Drops reinkers!)  They make my images POP with color!  

Thanks for popping over to check out my projects this week.  I'll be back again next week to share some fun new projects and a brand new bundle!  YUM YUM!

Flower Power! RG Studio 360 new bundle: Cake Layers

Hey there inky friends!  I'm back with another fun card created using the newest stamp set/bundle from RG Studio 360.  This bundle "Cake Layers" is not just for Birthdays....Yep.  I said that correctly.  Check out the card I created using the adorable florals!  

To create this card, I started out by making somewhat of a watercolor wash on some Powdered Sugar cardstock.  After I added a mix of colors,  I let it dry and then machine stitched some meandering lines on the paper.  After that, I mounted this stitched panel onto Sour Mist cardstock. 

Next, I used the digital versions of the flowers.  I printed several onto some Powdered Sugar cardstock and then used the Sugar Drops reinkers below and a tiny paintbrush to give them some color.  The watercolor effect these reinkers provide is awesome!  A little drop of ink and some water goes a LONG way! 
After coloring the images, I fussy cut them out and selected a few to add to my card.  

To finish off the card, I added the stitched panel onto Powdered Sugar cardstock and then mounted onto Tangy Grape cardstock.  I attached the sentiment (printed on a circle form in MSWord and fussy cut) and some twine to the card then added the flowers.  SO FUN, so pretty, I think.  

I'll be back again tomorrow with one more fun creation using this bundle.  Hop back over tomorrow to see another TOTALLY RG inspired birthday card.  :)
