Graciellie Design Favorite Ever Blog Hop & Giveaway

Hello hello hello everyone! Happy Monday… Let’s start this week with new hope, thanksgiving, and positive thoughts. And… Today I have several cards to share with you with hope they will make you smile.

These cards I created using some of my favorites digital stamps, digital SVG cutting files, and digital papers from Gracillie Design. Gracie and her design team are also sharing their projects. Check the blog hop details and list at Gracie’s blog today. Find out how you can enter the giveaway at the bottom of this post.

My first card, I used one of the beautiful Magnolia Dreams digital papers pack for the background. I printed it on a 4×6 photo paper, trimmed it into 4″x5.25″, and added it on top of a A4 white card with E-Z Runner Grand.

I cut out couple white cardstock with one of the Craftin Desert Divas – Inside Scalloped Rectangles Dies, then I stacked them together with permanent adhesive glue. I added the vellum paper on it with the permanent adhesive glue and then I added on the card with the same adhesive. I held it down with large acrylic stamping block for couple minutes to make sure it dried well.

I printed the 4 flower mug images from the Fresh Start Digital Stamp Set on a watercolor paper with laser printer. And then I cut them with my Silhouette Cameo 3 using PixScan Mat and their software for scan and cut.

I colored the flowers with Leisure Arts Double Ended Markers and waterbrush. I dried it with craft heater.

And then, carefully I dabbed some of the DecoFoil Liquid Adhesive using make up sponge around the mug, let it dried, and then I added the DecoFoil Silver Shattered Glass Foil Sheet on the cup and gently rubbed it to transfer the foil on the mug. I added it on the vellumed frame with 3D foam tape.

For the sentiment, I cut one of the DecoFoil Toner Sheets using my Silhouette Cameo 3 with the phrase from the Shine On SVG File. After that, I added the DecoFoil Turquoise Transfer Sheets and run it through the laminator. I distressed it a little bit with craft sanding block and I added it on the cup with DecoFoil Liquid Adhesive and some 3D foam tape, too.

On the second card, I used the Magnolia Dreams SVG Files for the background. I cut a piece of black cardstock with my Silhouette Cameo 3 using the background file and border file. I added the background on a white card with DecoFoil Liquid Adhesive.

Using the same technique, I print-and-cut the flower from the Life Happens Digital Stamp Set using Silhouette Cameo 3 and watercolor paper. I colored the flower with Leisure Arts Double Ended Markers and waterbrush. I dried it with craft heater and then I added it on the card with DecoFoil Liquid Adhesive. I added some white paint splatters on the card with acrylic spray paint and fan brush.

I also printed the sentiment on a white cardstock and I trimmed it into a sentiment label.

For the foiled sentiment, I cut Shine On SVG Files with the DecoFoil Toner Sheets and my Silhouette Cameo 3, this one I added the DecoFoil Silver Shattered Glass Foil Sheet and run it through laminator.

I added both of the sentiment word and label on the card with 3D foam tape and then embellished the card with some clear gems.

For this third CAS card, it is a pretty quick and easy to make. I used the border die cut that I cut before. It is from the Magnolia Dreams SVG Files. I added it on the top folded card with DecoFoil Liquid Adhesive. I added some white splatters using white acrylic spray paint and fan brush.

For the sentiment, it is one of the phrase from the Have Faith SVG Files. I used DecoFoil Toner Sheets and DecoFoil Turquoise Transfer Sheets. I used the same technique I did the the previous word die cuts using my Silhouette Cameo 3 dan laminator. I embellished this card with some of the natural twine ribbon.
