WOW! and Graciellie Designs Insta hop - Grateful heart

With digital files, you need to print them off, and you can simply load them into Microsoft Word, resize and print. However, I used them with a digital die cutting machine, the Silhouette Cameo to cut the designs out. But don’t worry you can fussy cut them out too. If you want to know how to use them with a Silhouette Cameo, make sure you check out the video above!

Here I’m using a selection of Copic markers to colour in the Fall Bouquet from the Grateful heart digital stamp set. The makers I’ve used are listed on the screen. I’m initially adding the darkest colour towards to the base of the petals, where the shadows are and I’m then going further out from the base lighting the colour of marker. Once the petal is covered, I go back in to just darken the shadows up a little more. This is a beautiful bouquet with a delicate floral centre.

Once the floral was complete, I went in and coloured the leaves with a similar process, adding the darkest colour to the base of the leaves and anywhere this is a line showing a fold to the leaf. This gives the leave more dimension.

After the design is completely coloured, trim down a piece of WOW! Fab foil in Rose gold, making sure it covers all the floral design. Next, heat up your Minc machine turned on to setting three, but you can use a laminator as well for this. Once the machine is warm enough,  feed the design through my machine in a carrier sheet. Alternatively, you can use a piece of paper folded if halve as well.

To make this into a card, the teal striped background from the Wild & Whimsy paper pack was adhered onto a card base made out of Soft stone Gina K cardstock. Next, the fall bouquet was foam mounted onto the front, hanging off the edge. Lastly, a Violet fab foiled sentiment from the You Matter digital stamp set was foam mounted on top and the edges were trimmed to match the card edge.

WOW! and Graciellie Designs Insta hop - Cupcake wishes

The large cupcake from Cupcake Wishes digital stamp set was printed out in toner ink, and was coloured in with Copic markers. The colours used were:

Once this was coloured, the cupcake was foiled in Silver Fab Foil. This looks beautiful against the vibrant pink.

To finish this card, use the darkest striped backgrounds from the Wild & Whimsy paper pack, and have adhered this to a card base made out of Edible Eggplant cardstock from Gina K Designs. The cupcake was cut out before foaming mounting this onto the card base and a sentiment from the Hey friend Digital stamp set was added. This reads ‘you deserve lots of presents today’ and it was foiled in Violet Fab Foil.

WOW! and Graciellie Designs Insta hop - Happiness is Homemade

This lemonade drink from the ‘Happiness is Homemade’ digital stamp set was too cute not to foil and thought it would look gorgeous in the Violet Fab foil. What’s more,  I think the white and Violet foil contrast looks stunning and no other colour was needed! 

To make this into a card the lemonade drink was adhered onto a card base that has the pink stripes from the Wild & Whimsy paper pack added to the front. In addition, the tag from the ‘Happiness is Homemade’ digital stamp set onto black card and foiled this in Silver. This pop of black on the card looks great with the silver foiler and keeps with the modern look the card. To finish this card off, add a little bit of twine around the rim of the glass and then adhere a bow over the top of the tag,

WOW! and Graciellie Designs Insta hop - Wild & WHimsy

These two cards were the quickest and easiest cards to make, but they look stunning and nobody would know they took no time at all!

For this first card, mount design number 6 from the Wild & Whimsy paper pack onto a pink card base. Next foam mount the ‘Hey Friend’ die-cut sentiment which was foiled blush fab foil onto the front. This background makes creating a card so quick and easy as all needs is a sentiment to finish it off.

For the second card, use design number 4 from the pack and rotate the design 90 degrees counterclockwise. Next, add a die-cut sentiment from the ‘You matter’ digital stamp set. This read: ‘No matter what you do, don’t let go of your dreams’ and this was foiled again in Blush Fab foil.
