Graciellie Design Stamp Release Blog Hop

Happy Sunday, sweet and sparkly friends! We are back for another celebration of the newest release from Graciellie Design's Digital Stamps! Gracie's stamps are beautiful and lovely. Today I am using one of the gorgeous sentiments from the new Classic Greetings set. ♥︎
Here is the cover of the set I am featuring, which is ideal for so many occasions.
(My previous blog hop card showcases the stunning floral image, which can be seen HERE.)
Life got in the way of a fancier card I had envisioned, but I'm grateful for every moment of crafting that can be squeezed in. For my birthday card, I used Pion Design's Scent of Lavender collection. The Prima flowers are from when I first began crafting... deeeep in my stash! The sweet bird's nest is from my crafty pal Kelly, to which I paired a La-La Land Crafts birdhouse. I had incredible fun crackling up the birdhouse and filling it with precious love. ♥︎

The foliage is a combination of Cheery Lynn and Tattered Lace dies. My base is (again!) made with Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles. The beautiful Tea Stain crinkle ribbon is from my wonderful friend Diana of DL.Art, while the pretty Cheyenne Lace beneath is from Live & Love Crafts.

All of Gracie's stamp sets can be found HERE for instant download. Additionally, there is a promotion for the remainder of the month so you can stock up on her fabulous stamps. ♥︎
