Hey stamping friends welcome back. My share today is a Slimline Card and Graciellie Designs, Hey Lovely digital stamps.
First can I say, welcome back to Slimline cards. I have been stamping for over 30 years and way back then, we made this size of cards because they fit into the then called “legal envelopes”….they are a ton of fun as you have much more real estate to create on…

My project today includes Graciellie Designs Digital Stamp, Hey Lovely. I’m fairly new to Graciellie Designs, and love her images. My friend Natasha Vacca introduced me to them through her beautiful artwork.
Graciellie Designs has a Digital Online store you can purchase the images from, download them to your computer and then open a word document, resize them, add backgrounds and sentiments and then print them off on your favorite paper. I used Canson 98 # Watercolor paper for today’s images.
You can also get Graciellie Designs stamps in stamp form from the Unity Stamp Company. I’m not an affiliate of either, but I sure like their designs.
The images are colored with Altenew Artist Watercolors 24 Pan set and then cut out.
Next, I created my card base from Simon Says Stamp Royal Purple card. I cut it at 7 x 8-1/2 and then scored at 3-1/2 to create the 3-1/2 x 8-1/2 slimline size.
Finally, for my background I decided on Vicki Boutin Mixed Media Paper and cut that to 3 x 8, the same with the Gold Mirror Foil paper tucked in behind.
For the sentiment, I white heat embossed it onto a piece of 3 x 2 black card stock. It’s from Simon Says Stamp Sketched Flowers stamp set.
Once everything was attached to the card, I mixed water and gold paint from the Gansai Tambi Gem Colors watercolor collection to splatter over the card front. I love the added BLING….
