Blog Hop with Graciellie Design!

Welcome to the Inspiration Blog Hop from the Graciellie Design design team.  I'm your last stop on the hop, so if you missed a stop along the way, head on over to Gracie's blog.  For my project, I made a pretty shaker card using items from the new August release; the fairy and sentiment from Magical Wishes digital stamps, along with the Magnolia Dreams digital papers.  Plus, coordinating papers from the Paper Temptress specialty pack, designed to coordinate with the new release.  




I have a YouTube video, showcasing how this shaker card was put together with instructions.  But here are a few key points of note.....

One of the great things I am discovering about digital stamps is the ability to layer images and have everything print out at once.  You can resize images as well.  On one 8.5x11" sheet of white cardstock, I was able to resize my digital papers into 4.4" and 4.5" sections, printing everything at once.  I use Microsoft Word, so I simply open a new document, add my pictures (digi papers and digi stamps) and resize.  





I wanted my fairy to have a dress using one of the Magnolia Blooms digital papers.  You need to print two fairies.  One that is layered on top of the digital paper, and one that is printed on white cardstock.  Depending on the program you use, you may need to change the fairy to have a translucent background, to layer on the digital paper.  Next, fussy cut both fairies.  Paper piece the fairy printed on digi paper by cutting out the dress and wings, then layer on top of the plain fairy.  You can see me do this in the YouTube video.  Add glitter glue to wings, petticoat and wand star.  I used Zig Clean Color brushes to color the hair, bow and slippers.



You can make your own shaker frame using foam tape, however I had some pop up shaker frames in my stash that I had purchased at the Scrapbook Expo.  Ready made frames are awesome.  You can create a 4x4" framed cut using your digi papers to lay on top.  I also cut the pretty pink bloom paper twice, one for a background (4x4") and one just a tad larger 4.5" so I could fussy cut those blooms and lay on top of my shaker frame.  Trim to fit, as needed.
