Paper Temptress & Graciellie Design Team Up – Blog Hop + $40 in Prizes

We have so much inspiration for you today! Graciellie Design is teaming up with Paper Temptress for the day and we are all going to be sharing pure gorgeousness featuring stamps from our shop and stunning specialty papers from Paper Temptress. We’ll be showing you techniques and tips on how to use digital stamps with these beautiful papers.

I am using today a stunning Opal Mica Metallic cardstock for my mixed media background that you can find on Paper Temptress online shop. The quality of these cardstock is amazing and with this project I was happy to discover that you can actually watercolor the mica cardstock and it’s shimmer will show through. Amazing right?Β Also, I am featuring one of our new stamp sets:Β Hello Gorgeous. It includes a detailed flower image and beautiful modern sentiments.

I watercolored both the flowers and the background with Stampin’ Up Watercolor Crayons in Earth Tones. I added touches of Gold Deco Foil here and there using a Deco Foil Adhesive Pen which gives the background a distressed look. I framed my card front with a bit of dotted patterned paper and a piece of May Arts lace and leaves to add a delicate touch. The sentiment was foiled in vellum and cut into a small banner. This card gives me countryside vibes!

Since we’ve gotten together to celebrate a blog hop we thought we would also share a couple of amazing prizes… Both Paper Temptress and I are giving away one $20 gift card each. All you have to do is stop by each blog listed below and leave a comment for a chance to win!
