3 Giveaways + New Magnolia Dreams Collection & Paper Temptress Blog Hop

Today is the beginning of a new design team term and we are introducing 13 amazing designers from all over the world! Also, we are celebrating this new journey with a digital collection like you’ve never seen before!

Our August release features for the first time a unique coordinating collection called Magnolia Dreams that includes a stamp set; a paper pack in 2 of my favorite colors: Fuscia and Teal; and, for the first time on our shop, an SVG set of 5 cuts that coordinate with the patterns on our new paper pack.

Graciellie Design is also collaborating this month with Paper Temptress not only with this amazing blog hop but also with an exclusive specialty paper release created to coordinate perfectly with our new Magnolia Dreams collection

This variety pack is a physical product that includes 23 sheets of high quality cardstock and it even includes a few extra ribbon goodies! It is available for purchase on Paper Temptress shop starting today! The colors were carefully selected to match our digital paper pack perfectly and the colors, textures and metallics you will get in this pack are beyond stunning!

My card for today is a mix of everything fuscia and teal from the new release! I drew this Magnolia flower from scratch inspired on the beautiful vintage Magnolia branch motif on the digital papers. This flower comes with a transparent background (just as the sentiments do). I uploaded the flower to my Cricut space, saved it as a print and cut file and the Cricut Explore Air 2 cut it out for me, saving me lots of time!

The flower was colored with Prismacolor pencils. This is my second time using this medium and though it takes longer than other coloring media do, you are able to add so much detail to the image. In this case I layered the color slowly and blended using 3 colors and a light color that helped create a soft transition between every hue.

All the papers used on this card come from Paper Temptress Magnolia Dreams Specialty Paper Collection. I used Cryogen White to print the digital papers (which makes the patterns shimmer), Nero Incandescent for the black frames, Teal Basis for the branch die cuts, Kraft for the printed sentiment and a delicate soft pink for the cardbase.

The patterns, colors and cardstocks coordinate so nicely and the result you’re going to get with this collection will always be bright and beautiful! All I needed to do to finish this card was add some teal rhinestones from Eyelet Outlet and I was done!

  1. I absolutely love all the designs! I have never really used digital paper designs, but they came out beautifully. The colors are definitely some of my favorites. Also tried the cut files, oh my how fun.
