Amazing Paper Grace | Make A Scene Collection Riding Along

Hi crafty friends!  It seems like we have been waiting for months for February to roll around.  We have been working in the background, holding our breath, tapping our feet and waiting on tippie toes to show you a new collection!  Ta-dah!!!  Today we are introducing a new Amazing Paper Grace Collection called Make A Scene!!!  It was designed by Becca Feeken and is available at Spellbinders.  Stay tuned for a video link at the bottom of the post. NOW, TO EXPLAIN THIS TO YOU . . . In the past, Becca has created several interactive collections . . remember 3D Vignettes and remember Shadowbox Vignettes?  One of the things Becca does, is she tries to create a new twist on interactive that you can also use with flat cards and with past collections. That means new material for your old material. 

WHAT IS MAKE A SCENE? Make A Scene is an interactive card collection and a flat card collection, all in one – you choose based on your style.  The interactive portion is made with a card base that folds in six different layered scenery options.  The 3D card base folds flat but slides open to reveal a dimensional scene.  Since it has a 3D profile, the opened card makes quite a splash and can be set out on a desk for showing off.  The card base is huge and it offers you the chance to snag one of six scenes that cover many occasions.  If the six scenes are not your occasion du jour, then by all means dive into your huge stash of dies and insert your own contents.  The flat card portion is made with the individual scenes.  Each of the components for the scenes can be cut onto the top of a panel and used on a flat card or as part of a 3D Vignette or as part of a shadowbox scene. 

My Projects for Today

I’m using the Amazing Paper Grace Make a Scene Card Base Etched Dies from Make a Scene Collection by Becca Feeken with the Amazing Paper Grace Rolling Along Scene Etched Dies from Make a Scene Collection by Becca Feeken with accents from the Amazing Paper Grace Cozy Home Scene Etched Dies from Make a Scene Collection by Becca Feeken, the Amazing Paper Grace Picture Perfect Window Scene Etched Dies from Make a Scene Collection by Becca Feeken and Amazing Paper Grace Make a Scene Bold Greetings Etched Dies from Make a Scene Collection by Becca Feeken for this interactive card. I put a very pretty scene paper as my background and did not want to hide it with the sentiment from the Rolling Along Scene so I used the Best Wishes Greeting from the Make a Scene on a base of acetate and I was so pleased how it turned out. Also, check out the very cute little cat!

To complete my card I have added a silver frame and blue decorative frame from the Amazing Paper Grace Scallop Façade Frame Etched Dies from Make a Scene Collection by Becca Feeken.

Designers Tip:

I found you cannot have a lot of bulk out wide in the front two layers as the layers will not slide through the side slots easily.

The background paper I have used here is from the Tulip Time Paper Collection from Heartfelt Creations.

How to Assemble:

When you see the card base it will make total sense how this goes together.  Here is a quick start video to lay it all out for you.

Amazing Paper Grace March Die of the Month Blog Hop – Mini 3D Vignette Floral Mason Jar

It doesn’t take many steps past February to begin to ache for the stirrings of spring.  Blooming flowers are the earliest sign and we have something to get you started.  Today I’m introducing the Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month for March 2021, Mini 3D Vignette Floral Mason Jar.

Becca Feeken of Amazing Paper Grace sent me these lovely dies to create with.Imagine kicking rocks as you walk down a sweet rural road, on one of the first days the weather hints that the seasons are starting to change.  You pick wildflowers and rush home to put them into a jar of water to keep them perky for the days to come.  This is the inspiration that struck Becca when she put together the flower and mason jar combination.  It’s so cute and sweet!!
This easy to assemble mason jar can contain anything, but today it holds layered flowers.  This flat side look is just like a real bouquet.  Glue them or layer them with foam tape to make a dramatic statement.  The mason jar can be left solid or cut like a frame for a shaker card the stems are simply threaded through each lid to secure them for arrangement.  If you’re partial to flat cards, use the filigree band with two brads to hold your stems! This makes a lovely card front bouquet, complete with stems.

There are 16 dies included in the Mini 3D Vignette Floral Mason Jar

My Project Today using Mini 3D Vignette Floral Mason Jar

I have made a 3D vignette card and a card with a shaker element to the jar. The flowers have been made using 160 LB flower shaping paper which enabled me to shape the flowers and leaves easily and also made the flowers very light for the 3D vignette card as well as the shaker card. The shaker elements are clear sequins and dew drops to give the effect of water in the jar.

Designer Tip:

Use heavy cardstock to make the 3D vignette card as it makes it more robust for holding the flowers.

Supplies:
Stamps:   I have used a old stamp from a magazine.
Paper: DMC Flower Shaping Paper, Neenah Solar Crest Cardstock
Ink: Ranger Archival ink – Magenta Hue, Violet, Library Green, Versamagic – Pretty Petunia, Distress Oxide ink – Mowed Grass
Accessories:  Amazing Paper Grace March 2021 Die of the Month – Mini 3D Vignette Floral Mason Jar, Amazing Paper Grace Scallop Façade Frame Etched Dies from Make a Scene Collection by Becca Feeken

My Projects for Today

I’m using S6-165 Make a Scene Card Base and S5-444 Perfect Picture Window Scene

For my 3D Get Well card I wanted to create a sense of spring with all the flowers around the window and window box. The daffodils are blooming in the window box and there are blossoms over the window and in the background and on the window box. Sending a hug is coming soon as well as some get well wishes.

I have created this Special Day card using the window and window box with a raised frame to create some depth for a shadow box effect. The cascading flowers and tulips are so cheerful for any special occasion.

I found you cannot have a lot of bulk out wide in the front two layers as the layers will not slide through the side slots easily.

Sending Love with Amazing Paper Grace Picot Petite

Amazing Paper Grace has gone back to her roots with classic sewing inspired motifs! Introducing the Picot Petite Collection!

Becca Feeken sent over these lovely dies for me to try.

Over time we’ve had lace-inspired designs and have loved the feel of Hemstitching and Candlewicking. Reminiscent of needlework and treasured handwork proudly displayed, Becca Feeken has developed another classic line of layering shapes that feel so much like tatting or picot crochet.  As you might imagine, these shapes are crisp, clean, and timeless. Whether you are simply adding a classic layer to a card or cutting an aperture to highlight a lovely sentiment – these shapes mix and match with other sewing inspired motifs as well as intricate backdrops.

Classic Shapes are Timeless

With each Classic Collection, Amazing Paper Grace creates the most popular die-cutting shapes in oval, round, square, and rectangles. Moreover, these classic shapes mix and match with Hemstitch Classics, Candlewick Classics, Elegant Twist Classics, and now Picot Petit.

The Inspiration behind Picot Petite

If you’ve ever seen tatting, the little loop produced along the edge is called a “picot”.  It’s this little loop that is the basis for the border on all of the Petite Picot shapes.  They are lovely as a backdrop for any other layerings as the little picot peeks out.  It’s just a subtle way to bring in the ways of classic needlework to give texture and dimension to the backdrop of our cards.

For this card I have layered up dies from this beautiful collecttion. The gorgeous Amazing Paper Grace Filigree Quartet Etched Dies from Picot Petite by Becca Feeken makes a stunning lacy background edged with the Amazing Paper Grace Picot Petite Squares Etched Dies Picot Petite Collection from Amazing Paper Grace by Becca Feeken.

I have just done a small tutorial on using different medium on the Amazing Paper Grace – Creative Encouragement Group on Facebook and one of the medium I used was 160 GSM vellum. Here I have used the Amazing Paper Grace Sweet Cottage Flowers Etched Dies 3D Vignette Mini Album Collection by Becca Feeken to create these flowers and used two layers of each size. For the leaves I have used the Amazing Paper Grace Cinch and Go IV set. The leaves were easy to made as the dies created all the texture and all I had to do was colour the leaves with Ranger Archival ink Vivid Chartreuse ink and shape lightly before adding around the flowers.

These are the dies that I have used to create this card:

The sentiment is from a retired set from Stampin Up – Rambling Rose

You are Loved Lovely Ladybird

What’s a Cardlet, pray tell?  A Cardlet is a small motif, complete with background, sentiment and character that combine to make small card or layers onto a larger card.  We’re delighted to introduce you to the Sweet Cardlets Collection.

Becca Feeken sent over these lovely dies and watercolors for me to try.

Sweet Cardlets show up in a Glimmer format with a matching die.   They are metal plates that are used in the Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil System to transfer foil to paper through a combination of heat and pressure.  The Glimmer machine base is rolled through your die cut machine to deliver that pressure.  As long as you have a machine that can accommodate thick dies – like steel rule dies, you’re all set. A word to the wise, it is very addicting.  (Compatibility charts on the Spellbinders website)

The Inspiration behind Sweet Cardlets

We gotta fess up here.  There’s no such word as cardlets, yep, Becca straight up made it up.  You have to agree though, it sounds really cute, right?  Well that was the inspiration behind sweet cardlets.  As you can imagine it has something to do with cards and moreover, little cards.  

Always mindful of the budget, Becca wanted to create a collection where each set is all you need to make a little card.  Sweet Cardlets are small motifs with a 3″ x 3″ footprint.  Each has a background, a main character and several sentiments.  

We found it the right size to fit on an A2 card and even to layer onto an A7 card.  In fact, the 3″ background can be repeated for a long background or a larger background.  Dies cut out each main character and three sentiments with each set give you lots of options.

My Project For Today

For my projects today I have used the very beautiful Amazing Paper Grace Lovely Ladybug Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set Sweet Cardlets by Becca Feeken and the Heart Felt Sentiments Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set Sweet Cardlets by Becca Feeken paired with the gorgeous and timeless Amazing Paper Grace Picot Petite Squares Etched Dies Picot Petite Collection from Amazing Paper Grace by Becca Feeken.

The handcrafted roses are made using the Amazing Paper Grace Candlewick Rosebud Etched Dies Candlewick Sampler Collection by Becca Feeken and the small filler flowers are made using the small flower die from the Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month – February Bella Diamante.

Here are what the dies look like:  

The other dies I have used are:
