Graciellie Design Stamp Release Blog Hop and Giveaway!

This is my second post of the day. For the Live & Love Crafts April Challenge, please click HERE.

Hello, sparkly friends! It's time for a blog hop featuring the newest release from Graciellie Design's Digital Stamps! Gracie's stamps are versatile and elegant, sure to spark sweet creativity. Today I am sharing two projects using one of the new sets called In Its Time. ♥︎
I have an affinity for papers and images with clocks and this couldn't be more beautifully done. The sentiments are not only perfect companions for the image, but also lovely on their own.

I created a card and tag set for a family in need of encouragement. ♥︎
I am thoroughly enamored with this stamp set, which I paired with LemonCraft House of Roses papers. Both roses are colored with Copics, fussy cut, and layered atop the stunning clock.
For the card, the clock is layered atop a Sue Wilson Italian Collection Decorative Frame. (Copics used: RV10, R81, R85; YG93, YG95, YG97) Live & Love Crafts chiffon organza ruffles along the bottom, whimsically lined with a string of pearls from my sweet friend Karen. I envisioned motion as time marches on, leading us to a desired harvest of all things lovely.
The Scripture sentiment is another favorite part of this set; a beautiful reminder that God always brings beauty from ashes in His perfect time. The recipient of this card must always remember this promise as they fight heartbreak. It is cut out with a Spellbinders Lacy Pennant. Tucked among the LLC flowers and pomegranate apples are lacy leaves from Tattered Lace. Part of a die from Marianne Design's Anja's 2 Vintage Ornaments serve as hinges.
My tag is also a Marianne Design die. The miniature version of the clock rests atop a My Craft Spot doily die (no longer in business). The sentiment is surrounded by pearly promises and sweet tiny pom trim. The Sweet Love crinkle ribbon is from my dear friend Diana of DL.Art.

Gracie's new (and previously released) stamp sets can be found at Graciellie Design's shop HERE. If you want to view last month's release and inspiration blog hop, click here.

  24. WOW this is stunning! I have been a fan of yours for quite some time now and I always get your blog posts in my email...I just usually stay quiet most times but today I had to say something because not only is this gorgeous like the rest of your work, and its not due to the giveaway either, its because of your reasoning and purpose behind these gorgeous projects. Some family is in need and you decided to try your best to bring comfort to their hearts and put a smile on their face! That deserved to be recognized as there are not too many great people left in this world that actually feel and care for others and their needs. So thank you for letting us know that you are one of those good people left in the world. I would really hope that this family you had in mind gets through their tough time and I hope they do turn to the Lord for He will make everything better.
    Hugs,
