Graciellie Design Stamp Release Blog Hop and Giveaway!

** This is my first of two posts today. Please click HERE for the Live & Love Crafts March challenge. **

Hello, sweet friends! Are you ready to kick off a new month of crafty fun? ♥︎
I am honored to be part of a blog hop featuring the newest release from Graciellie Design's Digital Stamps. Gracie's stamps are not only versatile, but they're also as beautiful as her heart! Today I am sharing a card with you using one of the new sets called Butterflies.
The sentiments are perfect for encouragement projects and the butterflies are gorgeous as-is or colored up to match a color palette.
I colored the butterflies with Copics (BG10-BG72-BG78) to coordinate with the LemonCraft papers, layering the large one. I adore Gracie's stamps because they so often portray exactly what my heart wants to say in my charitable cards. This sentiment is perfect for a lovely 19-year-old named Anna, a cancer warrior who is now blind due to her brain tumor. Her world has darkened with change and Hope must be her light.
Although I always love incorporating texture, it was especially important here. Because Anna cannot physically see this, I wanted her hands to have ruffling trims and large blossoms to explore. My heart believes she *will* see this one day; that her sight will be restored, along with everything else cancer has stolen. Until then, she will feel the love fluttering in it.
An extra bit of texture for Anna is a metal filigree corner, which is heat-embossed with Shabby White Frantage. The laces and most of the flowers are from Live & Love Crafts. The Cappuccino crinkle ribbon is from DL.Art.
Gracie's new stamp sets can be found at Graciellie's Design's shop HERE. If you want to view last month's release and inspiration blog hop, click here.
