Amazing Paper Grace | You are So Kind

The new The Right Words Collection is just perfect to add the finishing touches to personalise my cards. And I really love the mix of font in the Amazing Paper Grace Thank you for your Kindness Etched Dies from the Right Words Collection by Becca Feeken and I was inspired to create this beautiful Thank You Card adorned with gorgeous flowers.

Today’s projects were used with dies provided by Amazing Paper Grace.

My Projects for Today

For my project today I have made a 5″ x 7″ card using the Amazing Paper Grace Thank you for your Kindness Etched Dies from the Right Words Collection by Becca Feeken as a gorgeous base for some beautiful handcrafted flowers made from the Amazing Paper Grace Layered Cherry Blossoms Etched Dies from the Layered Fleur Bouquet Slimlines Collection by Becca Feeken. I have an exclusive tutorial on how I have created these flowers on the Amazing Paper Grace Encouragement Group on Facebook.

I have used the Amazing Paper Grace Romantic Slimline Borders Etched Dies from the Classically Becca Collection by Becca Feeken to create a lacy edge to the gorgeous background dies.

The pretty pink flowers from the Amazing Paper Grace Layered Cherry Blossoms Etched Dies from the Layered Fleur Bouquet Slimlines Collection by Becca Feeken.

I have used the blue, white and silver cardstock for the ‘kind’ sentiment to tie it to the base card. The oval dies from the Amazing Paper Grace Fluted Classics Ovals Etched Dies from the Fluted Classics Collection by Becca Feeken make a perfect background for the sentiment dies.

I have stacked the sentiment with three layers to create depth and dimension on the card.

To finish I have added some pink iridescent gems on the card to coordinate with the flower centres.

Amazing Paper Grace | The Right Words Collection Intro Blog Hop

I love layering die cuts from different collections and adding texture with embossing folders to create elegant cards for all occasions. The new The Right Words Collection is just perfect to add the finishing touches to personalise my cards.

Today’s projects were used with dies provided by Amazing Paper Grace.

My Projects for Today

For my projects I am using the Amazing Paper Grace Merry Everything Words Etched Dies from the Right Words Collection by Becca Feeken.

For my first card I have created a sweet notecard using the Amazing Paper Grace Scalloped Symphony Notecard Etched Dies from Sweet Serenade Notecards Collection by Becca Feeken. All the dies for this card came in the one set which made this very quick and easy to make.

I have trimmed the tag from the Amazing Paper Grace Merry Everything Words Etched Dies from the Right Words Collection by Becca Feeken to fit the smaller card and enable the sentiment to stand out from the decorative die background.

The pretty pink flowers from the Amazing Paper Grace Layered Cherry Blossoms Etched Dies from the Layered Fleur Bouquet Slimlines Collection by Becca Feeken evoke a sense of spring and rebirth to fit with the Easter sentiment.

I have used the layering dies to create more texture and interest with the silver bands from the Spellbinders Mini Slimline layering dies.

I have stacked the sentiment with three layers to create depth and dimension on the card.

I have angled the sentiment over the label rather than straight which made it easier to add the flowers on the ends of the card.

To finish I have added some pink iridescent gems on the label to coordinate with the flower centres.

The decorative die from the Amazing Paper Grace A2 Filigree Marquis Etched Dies from the Classically Becca Collection by Becca Feeken fits perfectly behind the label, and I have added the label using foam tape for more depth.

Amazing Paper Grace June 2022 Die of the Month

Isn’t this just the cutest wee car!! And it is perfect for creating aa 3D Vignette as well as creating a flat card with this die set for weddings and/or road trips! I love making wedding cards and for my projects today I have taken my inspiration from the last scene on the movie Grease and also the card that was on the packet of the Spellbinders Sun Burst stencil.

Dies for my creations today were supplied by Amazing Paper Grace.

There are 26 cutting dies included in the Pop Up 3D Vignette Road Trip.

I have made two cards and added the decorated car over the bottom car with foam tape to create some dimension and depth.

The ‘Just Married’ sentiment fitted perfectly on the front – reminiscent of cars being decorated for the bridal party to depart on their honeymoon.

To create my background I have sponged some blue and yellow inks on a piece of white cardstock. To finish the background I have used Nuvo White Glimmer paste to create the rays using the Spellbinders Sun Burst stencil.

I have added some gorgeous small flowers using the Amazing Paper Grace Petite Floral Potpourri Etched Dies from Beautiful Sentiment Vignettes Collection by Becca Feeken set to embellish the fronts of both the 3D Vignette and the flat card.

I have placed the car on an angle on the card front to give the illusion of the car taking off into the sky.

I have kept to the same decorations on the 3D vignette to show that you can do the same which ever way you wish to create with this die set.

This car looks ready to drive away into the sunset!

I have kept the colours simple to help create a harmonious colour palette.

The 3D Vignette just folds down for easy posting!

Amazing Paper Grace Thank You

I love the versatility of the Amazing Paper Grace Half Slimline dies by Becca Feeken and today I have created a 5″ x 7″ Thank You card using the Amazing Paper Grace Half Slimline Bracket Etched Dies from the Layered Fleur Bouquet Slimlines Collection by Becca Feeken. The half slimline die looks like an arch that is perfect for the flowers to nestle beneath it. The Amazing Paper Grace Layered Lilies Etched Dies from the Layered Fleur Bouquet Slimlines Collection by Becca Feeken are so easy to make and I have coloured them in my favourite pink and yellow combination.

Projects for today’s post were used with dies provided by Amazing Paper Grace.

My Projects for Today

For my card I have created a base with layers of Snowdrift cardstock and gold metallic cardstock – with the top Snowdrift layer being embossed. I have adhered the gold decorative half slimline die behind the Snowdift half slimline die for a touch of elegance and then trimmed two Snowdrift and gold Half Slimline dies to fit onto the front of the card. I have added extra texture with the centre oval from the Amazing Paper Grace A2 Radiant Navette Etched Dies from the Classically Becca Collection by Becca Feeken in the centre of the card.

To finish I have added an elegant sentiment from the Amazing Paper Grace Elegant Occasion Sentiments Glorious Glimmer Hot Foil Classic Plates by Becca Feeken and a satin ribbon bow at the base of the card.

Black and gold make a vibrant and stunning background to the gorgeous Wild Poppy Collection by Heartfelt Creations.

Amazing Birthday Joy

Tulips put on a stunning but brief show in spring around the world. But paper tulips last forever on a beautiful birthday card! Pink is my favourite colour and today I have a slimline card for you featuring gorgeous pink Amazing Paper Grace Layered Tulips Etched Dies by Becca Feeken on a pretty pink and ivory decorative base using the Amazing Paper Grace Half Slimline Diamond Etched Dies by Becca Feeken.

Projects for today’s post were used with dies provided by Amazing Paper Grace.

My Project for Today

For my card today I have created a base card using the Amazing Paper Grace Half Slimline Diamond Dies by Becca Feeken in a pink and ivory combination over an embossed background. The tulips were really easy to create from the Amazing Paper Grace Layered Tulip Dies by Becca Feeken and look fabulous in the centre of the diamond. I have a Spellbinders ‘birthday’ sentiment along with the Joy from the Half Slimline die set. I have stacked two layers of black sentiments with a top layer of gold which helps the birthday sentiment to really pop on the card.

To hide the joins on the background die I have used wide ivory ribbon.

To finish the card I have added small water droplets.

Amazing Spring Blossoms Hugs

I cannot get enough of the new Amazing Paper Grace Layered Fleur Bouquet Slimline Dies by Becca Feeken. The flowers are so beautiful and really easy to make and the background slimline dies are so versatile and make stunning backgrounds to the blossoms.

Projects for today’s post were used with dies provided by Amazing Paper Grace.

My Projects for Today

Today I have used the Amazing Paper Grace Layered Cherry Blossoms Etched Dies from the Layered Fleur Bouquet Slimlines Collection by Becca Feeken to create a pretty spring card to cheer someone up. The background die is the Amazing Paper Grace Half Slimline Oval Etched Dies from the Layered Fleur Bouquet Slimlines Collection by Becca Feeken which has been trimmed to fit onto a 5″ x 7″ card. I love how I can make so many different size cards with this very pretty die. And I so love how I can mix and match different Amazing Paper Grace dies to enhance the base of the card. The Amazing Paper Grace A2 Radiant Navette Etched Dies from the Classically Becca Collection by Becca Feeken fits perfectly over the Amazing Paper Grace Fluted Classics Ovals Etched Dies from the Fluted Classics Collection by Becca Feeken.

To finish I have added a sentiment from the Amazing Paper Grace Picture Perfect Window Scene Etched Dies from Make a Scene Collection by Becca Feeken and of course butterflies from my favourite Amazing Paper Grace Butterfly Bliss Garden Shutters 5 x 7″ Card Base Etched Dies from the Garden Shutters Collection by Becca Feeken.

To hide the joins on the background die I have used wide ivory ribbon.

I have stacked two layers of ivory cardstock with the gold cardstock to help create dimension and allow the sentiment to stand out.

Copic markers are perfect for colouring the stems and allow the flowers to pop.

I have coloured the stamens with a pale yellow ink and then I added pink iridescent gems to the centres of the flowers for a sparkly finish.

The background decorative dies have two layers – one ivory layer and a gold layer peeping out behind the dies.

Die cutting leaves and sepals from green cardstock makes flower making so quick and easy!

I have used foam squares to add dimension to the flowers to help them pop!
