Graciellie Design Blog Hop & Giveaway

Hello, all my creative friends!  I'm posting today to share a special card I made to support my fellow blog friend (and very talented artist) Gracie as she celebrates the relaunch of her adorably sweet Graciellie's Digital Design Shop.  Gracie has designed some lovely new digital stamp sets designed for card-making, scrapbooking, journalling, mixed media, and even home decor.
You should arrived here from the blog of my uber talented freind, Tenia Nelson and I'm sure you LOVED her sweet creation.   If you didn't come here from Tenia's blog, you can always head back to Gracie's Blog to get started.   This is the card I created using one of her sweet new stamp sets called "Believe".  
I printed the images from the Believe set onto a pink polka dot patterned paper from Making Memories (stash item), and colored it with my Copics.  I added some Prima flowers and leaves, a seam binding bow, black baker's twine, black lace, and some pearl sticker accents.  I really wanted to keep this sweet digital image the focal point of my card.  The set actually comes with two sentiments (of which I ued one).
This digital stamp set, along with all her other wonderful new sets, can be found in Gracie's Design Shop here.  Remember to like and follow her shop to be the first to learn of new products, and hear about specials.
And Now.....THE GIVEAWAY!   THREE of you blog hoppers will win a brand new digital stamp set from Graciellie's Digital Design Shop.  To be eligible to win one of the three prizes, simply hop along to each blog and leave a comment telling us what you would love to create with one of Gracie's lovely digital stamp sets.

The next stop on the hop is at the blog of the sweet and talented Samra L, and I just know she will have prepared something delightful.  She always does!  The blog hop will run for one week, and the winners will be posted on Gracie's Blog, so be sure to stop back by her blog on February 8 to see if you're a winner!

Also, I'll be sharing another Gracielle Digital Design Shop project, along with a Blog Hop reminder later this week.  Thanks for joining us, and happy hopping!

Karen

  14. Beautiful, as always. So many of Gracie's sets could be used for cards of encouragement and I have seen several that would work great for my 6 X 6 displays.
    Love the added touch of newsprint on your card. And such pretty color combo.

  24. Karen, it is always a joy to see what crafty beauty you and God are creating together. :o) I'm thrilled for Gracie's relaunch and you've used this set so gorgeously. The sentiment is spectacular and the sweet birdie is the perfect messenger of hope. Your ribbon and floral embellishments are always lovely. Beautifully done, my friend. With Gracie's stamps, I would create cards for those in need to remind them they are loved and never alone. :o) Have a blessed night, Karen!

    Karen
