Hello! I'm Gracie. I'm the mom of a sweet 3 year old boy and the wife of a loving and supporting husband; online, I am an avid crafter and blogger. My background goes from being a musician to studying Laws and Business Management, but I have always been creative so it was no surprise that I was drawn to papercrafting soon after I graduated from my second major. I discovered papercrafting formally through cardmaking around 2010 and little by little it became my passion, but I have collected pretty papers, stickers and more since I was in Pre-school. Since I opened my blog I've felt even more captivated by this craft and I've discovered that I also enjoy working with alternative projects that give me freedom to experiment with different techniques. My style goes from clean and layered to shabby chic and vintage, and I tend to create classic and feminine projects. My blog has allowed me to connect with other artists and it has given me so many opportunities that I'm thankful for. Currently I'm part of various design teams that I enjoy to work with very much. Today I feel delighted and grateful to be able to join Frilly & Funky as a guest designer... Thanks!
I added handmade flowers around two die cut hearts and embellished them with ribbon, pearls, pearl string, gauze, a vintage button and a word bead. I colored my flowers with Distress Ink spray in Spun Sugar, Perfect Pearls Mists in Biscotti and Distress ink in Old Paper.
I adhered it all on a beautiful floral patterned paper that I previously applied with Dreamweaver crackle embossing paste, Distress Paint in Antique Linen and Dylusions White Linen Ink Spray.
I'm sure you'll agree that Gracie's card is beautiful and has provided even more inspiration for the current challenge 'Snap, Crackle, Crackle'. And if you wan to see more of her beautiful card and even get a video tutorial on creating your own handmade flowers hop on over to her blog HERE.
