Graciellie Design March 1st Blog Hop/Giveaway The Perfect Blend

Hi there,

Welcome to the March 1st Blog Hop/Giveaway with the Graciellie 2017 Creative team. Today the team is featuring 4 new digital sets.  Today I am featuring Cup Of Tea. I decided to gold foil around the tea cup and saucer first. I traced around the rim of cup and saucer with the deco foil Adhesive pen .  Let it dry, (it will be sticky) then put the rose gold foil over cup shiny side up and ran it through my big shot. Peeled it off and it worked! You don't need a laminating machine for this technique.  I colored with Copics and then fussy cut and added to card.  There are 5 great sentiment as well! DP is from Authentique Beloved, Sentiment die cut is Spellbinders Shapeabilities Fancy Tags die cut leaves from PTI Garden Gild. Give this technique a try! It's so easy and fun!

So here's the scoop for the Blog hop and giveaway: Graciellie Design will give a $15 gift certificate to one lucky commenter.  So please hop and leave comments on ALL the creative team blogs and the Graciellie Blog for more chances to win!! International followers are welcome to participate as well.
