Grace’s Charming Cards are Just Peachy!

Grace joins us today with another beautifully innovative project! She shares a peachy-keen pair of cards using the apples from Build-A-Barrel: Apple. So much cleverness!

These fresh and fun cards are so perfect for sending happy mail to a friend who’s a real “peach”!

Grace’s peach pie Platform Pop-Up is so clever! She used the Cake Slice Box Pie Add-On for the pie crust and dollops of whipped cream! To add another layer of whipped cream, Grace added the treetop from Tree House behind the greeting.

Grace used the inside circle after die cutting the largest Stitched Circle Frame to mount the greeting and peaches to the center of her Platform Pop-Up. Henry’s ABCs in Rose Gold metallic cardstock is so pretty and complements the colors of the “peach pie” so well! The rest of the sentiment from Cutie Pie is stamped on a Fancy Wavy Banner.

Wow, how beautiful is this peachy card! Grace started with a Gotta Have Gingham Rainbow panel with a vellum panel layered over the top. She framed this with a Reverse Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Window in kraft cardstock. Then she filled in with more peachy goodness and another Rose Gold greeting. This time she included a sentiment from Birthday Before ‘n Afters.

Here, Grace shares the magic process for turning apples into peaches! She started with Sticky Note cardstock to cut the apple shapes. Then with some clever shading with Copic markers and Distress Oxide ink the peach emerges. As a final touch, Grace used white pencil and white gel pen to add more shading and detail. Then just pop the stem on top for the sweetest peach ever!

Thank you so much, Grace for sharing these amazing card designs with us today!

A Chalkboard Card Set with Grace

Grace joins us today to share a creative card set with a chalkboard design!

Grace covered Bristol smooth cardstock with Black Soot Distress Oxide ink, then she sprinkled the panels with water to bring out the oxide. To frame each chalkboard she used 6×6 papers from Let It Shine and Really Rainbow that she die cut with Stitched Rectangle Frames.

For the get well card, Grace has the cute A Creature Was Stirring mice cooking up some yummy soup! For all of the designs, she stamped the images and sentiments with clear embossing ink and then white heat-embossed them! She used colored pencils to color the images leaving the strokes unblended to look like chalk drawings. So clever!

The holiday card features the cute mice again with the hot beverages from Thanks a Latte! The red and white stripes add the perfect festive frame!

The mice are back whipping up a delicious birthday cake from Birthday Before ‘n Afters! Grace stamped out “happy” using Quinn’s Capital ABCs. I love how she colored them in rainbow colors to match the Really Rainbow frame! She added a Fancy Wavy Banner to frame the sentiment that is white embossed directly on the card panel.

Thank you so much for bringing back the chalkboard look, Grace! Your creative card set is so inspiring!
