Amazing Paper Grace | Make A Scene Collection Celebration Scene

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

Today I’m using the the Amazing Paper Grace Celebration Scene Etched Dies from Make a Scene Collection by Becca Feeken to create a pretty and feminine birthday card that will wow the recipient.

The card base is easy to make if you follow Becca’s video further down on this post.

The camellias are made using the Amazing Paper Grace Grand Cinch and Go Flowers Etched Dies from Make a Scene Collection by Becca Feeken and the leaves are a combination of the Amazing Paper Grace Cinch and Go V Etched Dies Vintage Treasures by Becca Feeken and the Amazing Paper Sweet Cottage Flowers Etched Dies 3D Vignette Mini Album Collection by Becca Feeken. The purple statice flowers are made using the flowers from the Amazing Paper Grace Layered Happily Ever After Etched Dies Elegant 3D Vignettes by Becca Feeken

I have a tutorial coming up on the Amazing Paper Grace – Encouragement Team on how I have made the camellia flowers and buds so be sure to join the group to find out.

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.

DOMAPG: May 2021 Die of the Month – Mini 3D Vignette Garden Gate

You can tell that around here, we adore spring and the prospect of blooming flowers.This month we invite you to take an idyllic stroll to a place of beauty. It calls and beckons to you, to come and sit down and enjoy your surroundings and all of the nature around you. Today I’m introducing a beautiful new Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month.  The way in . . . is through the Garden Gate. Introducing the beautiful new Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month for May 2021, Mini 3D Vignette Garden Gate.

Dies for my creations today were supplied by Amazing Paper Grace.This A7 showpiece folds flat into an envelope, only to expand and sit on a desktop where it invites the lucky recipient to take a stroll through the Garden Gate. As always, this die is meant to break apart and use the dies separately.  The elements are less than 4″ wide and are begging you to use them on an A2 card. You’ll love the charming details – hinges, a hook lock and a swinging sign to record your message.

Here are some ideas that might inspire you to create a flat card or box:
1.  The picket fence for a gatefold card (hint the gate really opens).
2.  The Arches for a wedding.
3.  The flowers and vines are curved to fit the arch but also make a wreath.
4.  A picket fence box and the arches for handles.Inviting you to plan your own garden and know you are in a place of peace and beauty when you come in through the Garden Gate.

There are 15 dies included in the Mini 3D Vignette Garden Gate.

My Project Today using Mini 3D Vignette Garden Gate.

The gate and arch reminded me of weddings so I have made two wedding cards – one a 5″ x 7″ card and one a 3D vignette with coordinating basket that would be perfect for putting in a gift or money voucher. I have added the bride and groom from the Amazing Paper Grace Layered Happily Ever After Etched Dies Elegant 3D Vignettes by Becca Feeken for two very romantic birthday cards.

Designer Tip:

The leaves and flowers are heavy on the arch so use two layers of cardstock or one heavy piece of cardstock for the arch.

Amazing Paper Grace | Stained Glass Bouquet – Deco Bloom

It’s a miracle that little painted shards of glass can come together to create such beauty!!  The intriguing lure of Stained Glass has inspired artisans from around the world to try their hand at shuffling colors and shuffling shards of glass to create something lovely to gaze upon.  Today we are introducing the newest Amazing Paper Grace collection called Stained Glass Floral Bouquet, created for Spellbinders.

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

Stained Glass Floral Bouquet Inspiration

Becca says that the inspiration for the collection came from her love of stained glass and never being able to muster the time to do it with real glass.  Who says you can’t have your cake and eat it too?  Now it’s easy to create with paper!  It’s amazing how you can give the same outline to a hand full of different artists and each will come up with a totally different look.

Stained Glass Floral Bouquet Collection

The Stained Glass Bouquet Collection is made up of 7 different die sets.  They are sized for layering and include small designs all the way up to A7 designs with different frames that can make both A2 and A7 designs.  The collection boasts shadow dies for each set so that whenever you don’t want a multicolor design, you can layer your “die-cut leading” onto one color.  The hallmark of the collection is a sweet stained glass flower and shadow in almost every set.  That gives you a background die and a central motif for each set.  

Attention “technique junkies” this collection is sweetly serenading you to try your favorite technique with the leading and the shards. 

     Here are ours:

  1. Fill each opening with a different color paper and add Glossy Accent.
  2. Ink on a hombre background before resetting your shards.
  3. A smidge of color in each opening with a Copic Marker.
  4. A different color leading – white, black, gold, silver.
  5. Build up tall leading with 4 layers and adhesive in between each.

My Project for Today:

Today I am sharing a birthday card featuring the stunning Amazing Paper Grace Deco Bloom Etched Dies from Stained Glass Bouquet Collection by Becca Feeken

I have kept the colours soft and pastel to highlight the gorgeous design.

The sentiment is from a retired stamp from Heartfelt Creations Celebrate the Journey set.

Designers Tip:

Die cut the background first and then do a separate outline die and adhere to the background. Then die cut the colours and lay the die with the die cuts over the background and poke the little shards into the background. I found that quickest and easiest for me.

Stained Glass Floral Bouquet Availability:

These dies and plates are available from Spellbinders right now! Click here: Stained Glass Floral Bouquet Collection.
